The Playhouse at Westport is once again running “Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus,” which they made such a big deal of 10 years ago. There’s a giant poster in the hallway.
I’ve always hated that poster to an irrational degree.
The artwork is super annoying for some reason — the two faces look both super smug and yet somehow infantilized. The whole concept behind the title is stupid, stereotypical, gender essentialism and probably mildly harmful in some way.
I always want to vandalize that poster:
Men are from EARTH, women are from EARTH, you’re really not that different, get over it.
or: Nonbinary comrades, we must defeat the alien menace!
or: You’re all immigrants.
or: I am from Pluto.
Speaking of Venus, Zoozve is official now. Congratulations on your naming, little quasi-satellite!
Now if we could just get justice for Pluto…
