The low down on The Get Down
Everyone says they want a goal focused lady protagonist who knows what she wants and goes after it. She knows the risks but she’s willing to take it. One who refuses to let a boy hold her back. They now have Mylene Cruz and suddenly she’s selfish? at most mylene is a teenger who acts like a teenager does, they break fucking hearts and say stuff they don’t mean. But don’t pretend she doesn’t care about Zeke, his future and the danger he’s putting himself in. Don’t pretend she doesn’t care about her girls and her family. Is she selfish or you just sexist? Every woman must be some self sacrificial lamb for every man in her life! If you compare her to her mother who is hinted to have put a man’s feelings and dreams ahead of her own, how unhappy and unsatisfied she is now. I cant blame Mylene.
