So what is a woman that has had numerous sex partners within a week? Just a sexual woman?
what is a woman who likes to read mystery novels? what is a woman whose favorite color is purple? what is a woman who likes carrot cake? what is a woman who likes to travel?
we don’t ask those questions because they seem frivolous and irrelevant. but for some reason we collectively as a society are obsessed with labeling and demeaning women on the basis of their sexuality.
i personally find labeling a woman on the basis of her sexuality as silly as labeling a woman on the basis of whether or not she likes scarves would be.
does it truly matter?
"The night sky is not lit up by one star, but by the billions of stars. Shine bright Black girls….Be bold. Be bright. Be blessed."
Just a few black girls/women who blew me away in 2013. I can’t wait to see what 2014 holds for them, for us, and for all Women of Color.
And let’s talk about the fact that Joseph Gordon Levitt himself said the point of the movie is not so you’d feel bad for him and fall in love with him, it’s so you’d realize how selfish some people are.
Actual quote from him from an interview:
The (500) Days of Summer attitude of ‘He wants you so bad’ seems attractive to some women and men, especially younger ones but I would encourage anyone who has a crush on my character to watch it again and examine how selfish he is.”
"He develops a mildly delusional obsession over a girl onto whom he projects all these fantasies. He thinks she’ll give his life meaning because he doesn’t care about much else going on in his life. A lot of boys and girls think their lives will have meaning if they find a partner who wants nothing else in life but them. That’s not healthy. That’s falling in love with the idea of a person, not the actual person.”
