Okay, so I just saw #AWrinkleInTime with the boys. If you haven't seen it yet and aren't sure your adult mind can keep up, I have a suggestion: Go see it with an 8 year old who's seen it before. They. Will. Walk. You. Through. It.
My kid was my best asset in the theater. He hasn't read any of y'all's think pieces. None of the adult perspective reviews. I am fascinated by the details he remembered and the way the movie spoke to him. He was my interpreter and my guide.
He hears whispers I would have missed. He saw colors I would have ignored. He noticed character epiphanies. He felt Meg's pain and it made him cry for the 2nd time. I love this little boy.

You remember some time ago where I mentioned that I was working on something I'd hope would be a nice alternative to the Bechdel test?

Well, here it is. The Kent Test. A test that specifically gauges whether WOC representation in a piece of media is pathetic or strong.
A month or so ago, I mentioned I was working on a secret project (in addition to the Representation in Media guide) and I am happy to finally be unveiling it this! On #InternationalWomensDay no less. Because obviously we deserve 💁🏾
Some background: after the wonderful @EqualityforHER and @BlairImani recruited me to work on the guide, I started to think about what else I could contribute besides terminology and sources for people to learn more about representation in media.

Despite what its marketing suggests, Anomalisa is as heartwarming or life-affirming/life-changing as an episode of The Affair. (aka its not)
(Anomalisa is still an incredible film-but, "the most human film" it is not...its more man than human...& really, he could be Noah Solloway)
The Walk is pretty great-hoping its love letter to the World Trade Center might just change my visual memory of those buildings..
