The Hard Nut

Gender performance everywhere! I got to see The Hard Nut by Mark Morris at BAM yesterday (watch the snowflake video, that was the best part). And we are slashing and burning our way through Game of Thrones on TV with its dated (?) mix of porn and female fury. Like many others, I’ve doubled up my donations to Planned Parenthood this fall and made my donation in memory of my hardworking immigrant grandmother. However, the cultural programming that teaches that, for instance, a woman cannot be president, is not directly addressed by securing the most basic rights over our physical bodies. I guess I better up my donations to the scholarship fund at my alma mater in memory of my other grandmother.
