Watching: Please like me. (273)

I’ve been watching Please like me on Netflix. There is something refreshing about the plot. Being gay is completely normal. Being mentally unstable is completely normal. And it’s Australian. I’m currently midway season two and despite the main character’s annoying habit of ending sentences in a higher pitched voice, I keep watching it.

Listen to this (270)

This episode by Reply All is well worth your time: #166 Country of Liars. It tries to unravel the secret of Q’s identity. As I’m seeing more and more thinned versions of Q’s ideas pop up in Dutch culture, I’m trying to understand this phenomenon a bit better. After listening to this episode, I’m even more appalled how these ideas find fertile soil in Europe as well.

Baby Grey (269)

I watched this short documentary on how two parents raise their child gender neutral. By the end of the film, their child celebrates their first birthday. I didn’t go as far as using a different pronoun for Daughter, but I avoided buying her gender stereotyped clothes and toys. I was able to maintain that until she was between two and three years old. It’s when she started noticing differences between boys and girls in daycare. She now prefers to wear dresses and pink is her favourite colour. It’s fine. It’s her choice. The Man and I keep stimulating her in all sorts of ways and sometimes we have to remind her there is no such thing as boys and girls play. Some boys play wild, but her best (girl)friend does so too. Some boys like to play with dolls, she does not. Peers and teachers are a strong force to deal with as parents. The parents in this documentary will discover that soon enough. And that is fine too.
