Charlie Jane Anders on 'Auntie Mame,' Harley Quinn and Extravagant Women

Feeling Seen

When it comes to film characters, author and commentator Charlie Jane Anders found that she had to took way back to a movie she loved as a child, AUNTIE MAME (1958), to name someone that made her feel seen in an aspirational way. But in that special FEELING SEEN way, the search for a character to identify with ends up revealing a whole slew of exuberant women who aren't afraid to live their big, colorful lives -- women like Harley Quinn, Leslie Knope, and the 13th Doctor. For one quick thing this week, Jordan's got something stuck in her craw regarding the franchise-fan response to the new TEXAS CHAINSAW movie.***Follow us on Twitter, Instagram, and FacebookWith Jordan Crucchiola and Charlie Jane Anders

SBG 68: Gunpowder Milkshake with Charlie Jane Anders

Lez Hang Out | A Lesbian Podcast

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) chat with author Charlie Jane Anders (@charliejaneanders) about why Gunpowder Milkshake Should’ve Been Gay. This movie was full of way too many kickass women in suits for us to believe that all of them are straight. We discuss the very clear poly relationship going on between all of the women in the library, the bisexual lighting following Sam around in every scene, and debate whether Madeleine's death counts toward Bury Your Gays. We talk about the lack of character development and how many missed opportunities there were for things to be so much gayer. Follow along on Twitter: Lez Hang Out (@lezhangoutpod) and answer our Q & Gay at the end of every episode. Leigh Holmes Foster (@lshfoster) and Ellie Brigida (@elliebrigida).
