she literally has to act against nothing but her own imagination of another person being there why the fuck didn’t she win an award
To be white, or straight, or male, or middle class is to be simultaneously ubiquitious and invisible. You’re everywhere you look, you’re the standard against which everyone else is measured. You’re like water, like air. People will tell you they went to see a “woman doctor” or they will say they went to see “the doctor.” People will tell you they have a “gay colleague” or they’ll tell you about a colleague. A white person will be happy to tell you about a “Black friend,” but when that same person simply mentions a “friend,” everyone will assume the person is white. Any college course that doesn’t have the word “woman” or “gay” or “minority” in its title is a course about men, heterosexuals, and white people. But we call those courses “literature,” “history” or “political science.”
This invisibility is political."
Michael S. Kimmel, in the introduction to the book, “Privilege: A Reader” (via thinkspeakstress)
You won an award for a show where you play so many different characters with so many different personalities. Do you think there are a couple of those personalities that you owe this award to more than others? (x)
I think I’ve made a terrible mistake.
