Laurie Halse Anderson, author of Speak, on the question “Have any readers ever asked questions that shocked you?”
Read that again. Read it again, and again, and again. Over and over guys have asked her why Melinda was so upset about being raped. This is a girl who went to a party with friends. She was thirteen. She had a drink, because everyone else was. And a senior held her down and raped her while she was too drunk to get away.
And guys don’t understand why she was upset.
Read that again and then come back and tell me again why I should just shut up and take a joke when a comedian blows off rape as a big deal, or women’s bodies are casually treated as commodities in media. Remind me why I shouldn’t care about the very real harm that society’s treatment of women and sexual assault does.
how many eye contact until date
Dean knew that Wood was jumpy. He tried to get her to relax - albeit in his own teasing way. “You look green,” he said, while they waited to begin the love scene. “And you know how green photographs in color.” But his jab did not break through. “I managed a grin, I think,” Wood said. In his narcissism, Dean may have felt that Wood was nervous about him. But Wood was actually not thinking of him at the moment, which may have been the problem. Instead, her mind was on the technical performance, the mechanics of the kiss. “I felt like a fighter before a match - let’s go in and get it over with. Jimmy was saying something, but all I could think of was: Is this the way - should I do it the way I rehearsed? Maybe that was too smooth. Maybe I should fumble a little.”
The big moment came for the kiss. Their lips met and Ray called cut, but Dean continued to press his lips against hers, and Wood (ever the pro) could tell that the camera was still rolling. “I didn’t exactly know what to do,” Wood said, “but I had no choice. Jimmy held and held and held. ‘Might as well enjoy it,’ he kidded me afterwards as I turned from green to red.” This time, Dean’s audacity worked. According to Wood, “the nervous spell was broken.”
No more excuses.
I will forever reblog this
It’s sort of horrifying that we all know what they’re talking about without them really saying it.. that it’s become that much of a norm in our society that we just know.
