Characters in media I do not like:
Dennis the Menace
All of the above are complete and total jerks, who screw with people in the name of their own selfish interests. Disgusting. Loathesome. Of course I loved "Saved by the Bell" back in the day, but I was young. I didn't know any better. But I NEVER liked that Dennis. And we all know how I feel about Tom.
Character in media I like:
Harriet the Spy
This girl had spunk. This girl lived life. This girl didn't cause anyone undue stress.
I think the bottom line here is that male characters tend to be horrible pains in the *ss. Also, I finished The Lacuna and was kind of disappointed. It was really good, I just...didn't really get into it as much as I expected to. Maybe I feel for Kingsolver's female characters more deeply than male. Maybe I feel for ALL female characters more deeply than male. Maybe this post has pointed out a potentially major propensity of mine for female perspectives - and disregard for male - that I never knew existed.
Whoa, Blogspot. Whoa. It's only Tuesday for crissakes. Just calm it down.
