*Regular followers will note that I missed a golden opportunity for Buzz to make a horrible misunderstood-word pun with the Bechdel Test… but that was on purpose, because I didn’t want to derail the core point of this episode… which is to point out that I keep forgetting my female characters and often only remember them to further the plot of my male characters. That is the failing of me as a writer, and not my female characters. As I said to someone else recently, I need to work on that!
So… there was a discussion on Facebook that I found myself involved in, regarding government attempts to regulate women’s choices. Someone had made a funny meme suggesting that perhaps if women were to incorporate their bodies that our government might then be less inclined to try and regulate them! So, along those lines… I couldn’t help myself and I created this Uterus logo to add to the discussion:
Obviously a parody of the Toys R Us logo, it just sort of fell into place once the idea had formed. While the actual topic of discussion is a serious one that I wasn’t meaning to make light of, some of us were trying to bring a little humor into the conversation. I try to keep my blog light and not go too deeply into serious stuff, but please don’t mistake that for not actually appreciating that there are serious things that a lot of people just aren’t working properly at addressing.
