On Difficult Women and Wanting More – Cliffhanger – Medium
Megan Boone, of ‘The Blacklist,’ speaks out about women in film.
By Lillian Brown

Entering its fifth season this fall, The Blacklist’s promos have always dealt with these issues. Often, Red’s either the only character promoted or the focal point of the image. Even the 30 second TV spot trailers have become problematic. Promos used to be about Liz, Red, and the rest of the team taking down someone on the blacklist, but in Season 3 they became about Liz’s love life (“which man will she choose?” and “what does this [other female character] mean for Liz?”) and Season 4 has become about what she means to Red (“the only way to save Liz, is for Red to…”)

A lot of women are hesitant to call out their shows or networks, for fear of being blacklisted or labeled “difficult.” But now Megan Boone is speaking out. And I sincerely hope she gets to have that conversation with the show, because viewers will follow her throughout what will most likely be a lengthy career, and The Blacklist is worth saving. Wanting more isn’t selfish. We need more.

Can we just all think back to that time when I discovered the terms “Neurotypical” and “Neurodivergent” on Tumblr while looking up things about my ADHD, and I was all “omg wow I am opened up to so many things about myself that I never knew how to put into words before this is gr8!!!!”, but, like, I didn’t realiased that my ADHD ass read the post too fast and mixed up the words and so I went around calling myself a neurotypical for atleast a week.

so if there’s one single trope i’m always down to fight it’s the animal bride (folklore motif 402??) which a lot of you are probably familiar with as the selkie - the fisherman either falls in love, steals her skin to trap her on land/gain power over her, or they fall in love and THEN he steals her skin to keep her from leaving, and either way she spends a lot of time gazing sadly out to sea and then she or her child finds the skin and never returns again.
and that’s awful on a whole lot of levels - it’s not love, it’s control.

BUT. but the thing is. you how selkies/seal women was a pretty common variation of this? another really popular one was swans.

i just want you to think about that for a moment. swans. like…I get it, they’re pretty, graceful birds, certainly it’s easy to imagine them magically becoming pretty graceful ladies? but have you ever fought a swan. swans are awful. swans are the devil’s geese. imagine seeing a pretty magic lady and being absolutely enchanted by her, and stealing her magic feather cloak, and then you go up and say ‘hey i’m in love with you, let me make you my queen, it will be great, we’ll be so happy’ and she just looks at you for a moment and…

you know i was going to say maybe she just shouts for her sisters and suddenly you’re realizing you’ve made a terrible terrible mistake bc you’re surrounded by big fucking birds who are all hissing. but honestly if this swan lady is as aggressively down to brawl as any other generally unhappy swan, then she’d straight up fuck you up on her own. she’d just deck you roundhouse, honestly. you don’t fuck with swans. why does this trope exist

Does mod g have a crush? who the hell knows

i mentioned the recent confusion about my intimidating guns and the clever solution that i solved it with to steve, and he helpfully illustrated my success. 

i knit that sweater myself you guys, im very proud. 

Honestly Yuri On Ice is such a ridiculous piece of fiction like it’s based around this somewhat outdated cliche of what if your idol and celebrity crush fell in love with you? except it does it in a really great way where we witness them actually falling in love with each other through building a relationship, while also addressing well the fact that the main characters have anxiety and depression, and the entire time it’s about competitive ice skating so we get a lot of really beautiful sequences, and it’s also super gay which is like really lovely to see a strong romantic relationship develop between two grown men and overall the show is just so wonderful and pure and wholesome but there was also a scene with drunk pole dancing and dry humping that serves as arguably the most pivotal scene in the entire show in terms of character development and plot twists so there’s that as well.
