"I am and always will be the optimist, the hoper of far-flung hopes and the dreamer of improbable dreams."

"I’m a star, and the audience loves me… and I love them. And they love me for loving them and I love them for loving me. And we love each other. And that’s because none of us got enough love in our childhood. And that’s showbiz… kid."
Men still have trouble recognizing that a woman can be complex, can have ambition, good looks, sexuality, erudition, and common sense. A woman can have all those facets, and yet men, in literature and in drama, seem to need to simplify women, to polarize us as either the whore or the angel.Natalie Dormer

Note: it took me a lot longer than I had anticipated to actually write this, so it’s not as current now as it was (although I don’t think discussion of the issue of representation of women in media should be limited to those times when it is newsworthy) but I still feel it’s important to speak my mind on this. So I will.
It’s been a long time since I’ve actually written anything on Tumblr (or indeed anything of meaning in general), and since at my current job I often feel like my brain is atrophying I decided I should dust of my brain cells and
write ramble about something that has been on my mind for the past few days couple of weeks.
I think that the way woman and men relate to each other is changing and I like it. Also, I think that women should lead the world. Men are idiots, including me. Women can understand what’s going on better and that’s why they are more sensitive than men. At least in my personal experience. Men are always focused on the competition, as an obsession. But I think that we could learn a lot from women [especially if we] managed problems from a feminine point of view.
