men are from Tatooine, women are from Omicron Persei XIII

Sigh…

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…
