Cate Blanchett’s acceptance speech may have read feminist, and her wording was beautiful, except her thanking of Woody Allen (whose adopted daughter Dylan Farrow has come out publicly about her abuse at the hand of her proto-father) and intentional framing of him as a feminist film maker, that everyone seems so fast to ignore in congratulating her for ‘calling out the Academy.’
Blue Jasmine saw no other nominations or awards for a reason, and her acting deserved all it won, but Cate Blanchett chose to reinforce an industry that values male filmmakers and celebrities like Woody Allen over the children and young women they abuse and violate. That doesn’t sound very feminist to me.
Here is to my heart
Poured out to you, like
Spilled milk nobody cries over
My inspiration wasted
Writing poems for the one
Who cares the least
And this fear
That you are deep under my skin
That your touches penetrated
And I, now, so much later
Still love you
I feel too much, I get it, and I feel:
Puzzled by how much you know me
Wondering how much you care
Confused about this non-friendship
What is this thing we are doing?
Why does it hurt like this?
I don’t want you to be one more pain I have to get over, I don’t want to mourn you for two years to then forget you.
But I may have to.
THIS IS MAKING ME ANGRY
I SEE HOW IT WORKS AND AT THE SAME TIME I DON’T
this is hurting me
I don’t think people understand just how much these things fuck with my head
