I am having a hard time reading Grace’s arc this season as anything other than her slow realisation that she’s in love with Frankie. It’s just right there.
yes yes me too!! i don’t know if the writers were aiming to make a point about grace’s dependency on frankie (or their co-dependency) but, really, it has just massively ended up reading like grace has fallen in love with frankie + like i know it’s 99% not gonna happen but i so wish netflix would go down that route
i want to talk about the word “jew” for a hot second, because i don’t think gentiles understand why some jewish people don’t like being called that. this year, cnn had a banner that said “Alt-right founder questions if Jews are people.” now, they’ve gotten a lot of backlash for it, and apologized, but here’s the point: the sentence “Are Jews People?” is very different from “Are Jewish people people?” See, in the second sentence, the absolute ridiculousness of the question is even more clear, because of course a jewish person is a person, it’s right in the name. But by calling jewish people “jews,” it allows certain groups to dehumanize us, remove our personhood. I’m not suggesting we get rid of the term “jew” entirely, but the full word is something to keep in mind when using it.
