Finally

A couple of weeks ago I went to see Wonder Woman. I cried three times during it. The scene of the Amazons defending their island, the scene of Diana crossing the battlefied... I did not expect to be so moved but there I was, crying, because 'I've never seen...' and 'finally' and the entirely unexpected emotional impact of that. I've been brutally honest about my reaction as well every male colleague with whom I've gotten to talking about the movie. Because it needs to be said. And because I hope that it helps them understand. Even if just a little bit.

And then today:




I genuinely cried again. Because finally.

And every single whiney fanboy who starts the argument with 'I'm not sexist but...' can take their male privilege and kindly go fuck themselves.

I don't even watch Dr. Who and I'm pleased! So yes, I agree. Fanboys can suck it.

ISN'T IT WONDERFUL TO BE ALIVE WHEN THIS IS HAPPENING AND TO SEE TINY LITTLE GIRLS DRESSING UP AS WONDER WOMAN AND HITTING THINGS WITH SWORDS

Wonderwoman doesn't appeal to me - nor do Batman, Spiderman, Superman or any of the heroes so it isn't sexist on my part!

Thrilled about the Doctor Who news.

Off to Portugal on Monday and I imagine you're in Finland by now.
