One of the many great things about Some Like It Hot is that it totally recognises what it’s like for women to be objectified. The first time you see Sugar, it’s that iconic pan-up jello-on-springs shot, where she is just The Object. But Jerry and Joe almost immediately learn what it’s like to be the object of sexual harassment. And Jerry, who here wants to be “a bull again”, by the end of the film has embraced his Daphne persona and realised that femininity isn’t just something to be either objectified or rejected.
tl;dr this film says more interesting things about gender and sexual politics than most media today.
Thank you Janis for waking me up at 3am this morning meowing all weird because you had your ducky in your mouth and wanted to bring it into bed. That didn’t mess with my sleep at all. (at casa de brighton)
don’t i look stylin. One of my co-workers has to wear special glasses to fix her double vision, so our boss bought these glasses for our entire department so we can “show solidarity”. BUAHAHA. At least I got purple.
