Washington Heights - New York, NY
Yeah, I might have watched a movie and gotten kind of mad.
This is seriously a trope I’d love to never see again though.
The sad part here is I have no idea what “she’s awesome, he knows nothing, but in the end he’s awesomer” movie the comic book artist saw. Off the top of my head: X-Men? The Matrix? Pacific Rim? Edge of Tomorrow? The Lego Movie? Wall-E?
Another one it could be: Wanted. Oh, and The Lion King.
(Short answer: no)
Five things to love:
(1) The URL keywords: retirement, feminists, jazzercise. It’s the little things.http://www.newrepublic.com/article/119578/ruth-bader-ginsburg-interview-retirement-feminists-jazzercise
(2) The fact that she quotes back to interviewer Jeffrey Rosen “YOU CAN’T SPELL TRUTH WITHOUT RUTH.”
"If there was one decision I would overrule, it would be Citizens United. I think the notion that we have all the democracy that money can buy strays so far from what our democracy is supposed to be.”
(4) Suck it, Ezekiel Emanuel:
"As long as I can do the job full steam, I will stay here. I think I will know when I’m no longer able to think as lucidly, to remember as well, to write as fast. I was number one last term in the speed with which opinions came down. My average from the day of argument to the day the decision was released was sixty days, ahead of the chief by some six days. So I don’t think I have reached the point where I can’t do the job as well."
(5) The Notorious R.B.G., owning it:
JR: What is the opinion that you’ve written that you think has done the most to advance civil liberties?
RBG: Oh, Jeff, that’s like asking which of my four grandchildren I prefer. There have been so many.
Loving the sustained RBG love of late - this interview for Elle was terrific, too. Small snippet:
Q: Does it make a difference having three women justices?
A: Yes, an enormous difference….When Sandra left, I was all alone…. Now Kagan is on my left, and Sotomayor is on my right. So we look like we’re really part of the court and we’re here to stay. Also, both of them are very active in oral arguments. They’re not shrinking violets. It’s very good for the schoolchildren who parade in and out of the court to see.
See it —> be it.
Goddamn I love her. Item 5 makes me grin and tear up.

This interview is the best reflection I’ve read of how I feel being a woman in the tech industry. I get more respect than a lot of my female coworkers, being on the product side and somewhat technically aware, but I don’t get guy-level respect. My ideas are routinely ignored, or ascribed to other male coworkers.
I know my coworkers aren’t consciously doing this. Calling them out on it is, for the most part, pointless: it will be seen as irrational, overly sensitive, or aggressive. And yet, when I talk to other women, we do generally feel like our expertise isn’t valued, that we have to justify our arguments beyond reason, and that our challenges are simply ignored. It may not be sexism: we may really all just be worse at our jobs. But I doubt it.
So I like the approach this interview takes. No judgements, no sense that men are consciously to blame, just a clear, honest description of how things have been for this particular women during her career.
