So it’s International Women’s Day. As you may or may not recall, I myself have a vagina, which qualifies me as an International Woman (of mystery). And so I too would like to celebrate, “the story of ordinary women as makers of history.”
Now watch out, I might get serious for two seconds here: People keep asking me if I care what gender this parasite is, if I want a boy or a girl. Maybe, if I really listen to my heart of hearts, the answer is a girl. But when I listen to my head, I start to wonder….in much the same way I wonder if my kid will be gay…do I really wish that on it? Given the choice, would I protect it from all those hardships that gender or sexual orientation can cause? Yeah, I dunno. But it makes ya stop and think, eh?
This video will also make you stop and think….and not just think, “Wow, Daniel Craig is a surprisingly attractive woman.”
Also? I want to be Helen Mirren when I grow up.
UPDATED: OK apparently the voice over is actually Dame Judy Dench. I get silver haired British ladies confused. I’d probably believe you if you told me that was actually Camilla. Still, if I’m picking which old British lady I’d like to be, I’m sticking with the choice of Helen Mirren. Unless the Queen is an option. Nope, still Helen. The end.
