The author models the eyewear of the New Twistolution
You know how I’m convinced that the patriarchy = the Matrix and that there is no escape short of an uprising of spinster aunts in total revolution, some of which revolution will of course take place in bullet-time slo-mo, but with different shades, since those Matrix ones are starting to look a little dated, and in cowboy hats, because why the hell not? And how my hypothesis suggests that all art and history and politics and that sort of thing are thoroughly marinated in patriarchal ideology, including such rafeblos (that’s “radical feminist blogs” to you non-spinster aunts) as I Blame The Patriarchy, and that you can talk all day long about how “empowered” you are (although I wish you wouldn’t) but it won’t make men hate you any less, which pretty much sucks for you because they’re the ones with all the actual power? Et cetera?
Where, you are undoubtedly yearning to know, am I going with this palaver? Well, reader Kim wants to know if there exist any movies her teenage kid can watch that don’t “see the world through patriarchal eyes.” I was about to send her a depressing email expressing my view that, since all eyes are patriarchal, all films necessarily capitulate in some way to The Man no matter what, and that post-patriarchal cinema can’t exist until the patriarchy doesn’t, but at the last minute I said to myself, heck why not ask the blamers? Those guys, I said to myself, are bound to have endless opinions on the matter.
So have at it.
