Chering Is Caring

| AB, Canada | Friendly | August 12, 2016

(My friend and I are chatting. Note that he is a film major, we are both impassioned feminists, and this exchange takes place around the height of the “get you a man who can do both” meme.)

Friend: “Have you seen what the director of Mad Max did before Mad Max?”

Me: “No.”

Friend:Happy Feet, Happy Feet Two, Babe, and Babe: Pig in the City. Flexibility!”

Me: “Get you a man who can do both.”

Friend: “But he’s also made some other very feminist coded works. He made one about three witches who get a new roommate who tries to seduce them and is the devil. The whole thing is three happily sexual women fighting The Male Devil.”

(He’s referring to the 1987 film ‘The Witches of Eastwick.’)

Me: “What! That sounds amazing!”

Friend: “It famously wasn’t very good plot wise though. I mean, Cher is in it.”

Me: *jokingly* “Name one piece of media that hasn’t been improved with Cher.”
