The insults are thrown at Curley’s wife: bitch, tramp, tart. The further along in the production we go, the more I realize that the audience agrees. In rooting for our heroes — the everyman protagonists who scorn and demean the only woman — the audience finds themselves unquestioningly hating her, too. But why? Of course, in playing this character, as with any other project, I care for her and have found common ground with even her specific flaws; I would expect my affection for her to be above those watching from the audience. But in dissecting this piece for five months now, I’ve found that within the writing, there is both a lack of reason to truly hate this woman, and the inevitable and undeniable urge to do so.

You know, I had no intention of seeing this production because I think James Franco is a personified tribal tattoo, and while Meester’s description of the audience sort of cements that I don’t want to be in that room, I’m glad to see that she Gets It. Leighton, you sound smart. Let’s find you a better show.

I saw your post about not liking to talk to white people about feminism vegetarianism etc. could I ask why you feel this way? I am a white woman vegan and supportive of feminism having been a victim of sexism in my field of study. I believe that my opinion matters just as much as a non white woman's as I see us as equals. I don't feel that the color of a persons skin should dictate whether or not they get an opinion but their experiences and their respect for others. I'm not being hostile either

gutgroan:

i feel this way because, as the brown-skinned child of immigrants, white americans approach vegetarianism, feminism, and agnosticism with little or no understanding of what culture means and how it shapes brown identities. 

my white vegan and vegetarian friends are often derisive of people that eat meat or animal products, calling them lazy or cruel. but my mother’s recipes will die with her if i do not learn them and she has spent a lifetime perfecting them. food is one of the most important ways with which she shows her love. in this nation of white folk who have always looked down on us - and on her particularly - how can she assert her identity? surrounded by people who are actively trying to erase her, how can she be assured that her children will carry on her legacy? as an uneducated brown woman, in what ways can she mark the world and remind her offspring of their roots? 

white atheists are disgustingly condescending to religious folk. in an american setting, it becomes more than just simple condescension, it becomes imperialism. my family must mold their beliefs to suit white supremacy or be mocked for being stupid, backwards, and deluded. brown savages with primitive minds.

white feminism is poisonous beyond belief, refusing to accept the intersections of identities (racial, economic, etc.) in the name of a false greater good. you can google it. 

"I believe that my opinion matters just as much as a non white woman’s as I see us as equals. I don’t feel that the color of a persons skin should dictate whether or not they get an opinion but their experiences and their respect for others."

listen to me carefully: your opinion is not always necessary. if you want to be an ally to people of color, you must realize that in most cases, you are most helpful when you are silent. the idea that we are equals when my shout is not heard over your whisper is a lie.

Of course I am not worried about intimidating men. The type of man who will be intimidated by me is exactly the type of man I have no interest in.

I mean there’s a certain finality about a movie, when it’s done it’s done – that raised eyebrow in that moment will always be that raised eyebrow. Whereas a play only lives as a blueprint for a performance on any given night. There’s a reason you can eat popcorn and watch a movie and you can’t do that in the theatre. Theatre you have to lean in, you have to tune your ear to the stage and participate…I respond to heat. And blood. And humanity. The cold experience is not for me. I’ve always enjoyed all the real people in a room together in the theatre.
