Reply To: On the TV portrayal of the "Strong Woman"


I am quickly learning that where Connie, Rachel, Mrs. Parker and Celtic and go is where I want to be. Agent Carter? BSG? Game of Thrones? Smart feminist remarks? If Mrs. Parker is covering snacks, I will bring the booze.

your children will grow up and leave you and get lives of their own. So your relationship with your husband has to be the one that matters most to you.

This is so hard to hear as a mother, but I suppose I’ve left my mother already in a sense. I still need her but I know that she gave me the tools to survive without her now. I suppose Claire did the same for Bree.

(Please reread these questions with very dramatic organ music playing in your head.)

I write with questions all the time and I am stealing this.
