Ask me anything

words written clear on a wall.
help her to help herself, help her to stand,
help her to lose and to find.
teach her we're only as big as our dreams,
show her that fortune is blind.

Glamour UK:What do you get riled up about in a feminist context?
Gillian Anderson:A lot. I have feminist bones and when I hear things or see people react to women in certain ways I have very little tolerance.
Glamour UK:But don't you feel sorry for modern men? Not knowing whether they should help us with our bags and open doors for us or whether we'll see it as an affront?
Gillian Anderson:No. I don't feel sorry for men.

When trouble strikes, head to the library. You will either be able to solve the problem, or simply have something to read as the world crashes down around you.

Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.

C.S. Lewis, “On Three Ways of Writing for Children,” 1952
