(c) mehmet erdogan You saw Pandora in fifth grade writing love notes on scraps of paper and thought her to be impossibly romantic. On the first day of school she wore a pink shirt that showcased two red hearts inside one another, and when she took some time getting up after the bell rang, you fell in love with her. She liked shivering early mornings; she collected cut outs of movie stars from magazines. You stayed consistently curious throughout high school - perhaps insistent on your crush particularly so it would get you through three years of otherwise mind-numbing world of academe. She would pack so much grace in small movements in the tiniest of moments it confused you. Which is why when she smiled at you, it warmed you, made you want to sing, made you want to dance - until you saw her smile at Josh, too, and then at Phil, and even at Casey. When Titanic came out, Leo DiCaprio was all she’d talk about, so you grew your hair. You got your braces taken out, much to your mother’s chagrin. You tried writing poems, but it wasn’t in you; you watched your brother play the guitar in his room and felt sorry for yourself. You jerked off in the bathroom quietly trying to think of anything but her, almost succeeding but only up to the last second; and when you got up and flushed, guilt covered your ankles like a pair of jeans glued to the floor. There was a point where you were supposed to become a stronger version of yourself, when the older relatives in the family should notice a crack in your voice and contemplate the growth of your bones. Instead, it felt as though the tides of time took a little bit more sand from your shores every day; each "good night!" left you a little smaller, and you grew quieter, especially around her, especially when she walked up and down the hallway, as you pretended to look for a pencil or your soccer shoes in that locker. Eventually where others were filled with excitement, with danger, with history, with intellectual awakenings, you found yourself drawing blank. It seemed that just when that breakthrough moment had come for you, just when it was your turn to shine and you’d opened your mouth to celebrate, someone had put you on pause and left you there, waiting. But you wanted it. Of course you wanted it. The excitement, the danger, the history, the intellectual awakenings. Instead you started to skip breakfast and opted to dive to the very bottom of yourself, every morning digging without an idea of what to do dig for but still yearning, hoping you'd recognize it if you could just spot it - though always having to resurface, always at the wrong times, breathless and aching. She was bigger than everyone else combined – even her own shadow couldn’t live up to it; she outdid everyone and everything. As if a bird overlooking them all, in an instant flash, you saw it: all those boys (and Jacqueline, perhaps,) overwhelmed and scribbling in their respective corners, with her head raised high in the front seat, occasionally palming the pairs of eyes on the back of her head, in her hair, then lowering her arm to the floor and opening her palm, as if feeding stars to the fish in an aquarium. Strangely enough, she never dated anyone. Everyone dated her - in their heads, in their stories, at night in dreams. It was the way it was those days: she smiled to you and you melted. She said hello and your appetite grew stronger. It was through her the plaids made a comeback. Then headbands. She wore one to a school party and next week the style went through the locker rooms like gonorrhea. You grew suspicious of everyone who was smiling at the cafeteria. Washing your hands in the sink and catching a glimpse in the mirror, you became suspicious of yourself... . Seven years later, now, a few minutes after you step out of the train on 72nd and start walking on Amsterdam, you will see her sitting at a cafe, wearing a beret, holding a mug to her lips, keeping it there for warmth. She will appear frozen for a tiny second, then move ever so slightly. (Still graceful - some things never change.) She won’t see you, so you will walk by, without a wave, and then you will think: all those seven years will come to you, jump to you, heavy as marshmallow, light as lead, stir you, shake you. Seven years of dirty towels under your bed will say: There is an incomplete scene here, this is your cue. Then in a rush, as in a run-on sentence, you will turn around and go in and stop by her table, wave awkwardly, all white teeth and good hair, the wave uncharacteristic of a 22 year old, a wave seven years late; you will say "hi - " then stop, frustrated with the word itself as if there should be more to it. You will make small talk, only the tips of your fingers inside your pockets, your little pockets unable to contain more, you cursing your fashion choices. You will step back and forth, throw the hair out of your face, take a quick peek at her notepad as she is talking to you – two scribbledSeason4: Eps13 - Sin in the City 9 (photo story)
Lukas: *walks in* “Hey, Yuri, have you seen my cell? I was about to head out to the club and realized I didn’t have it on me.” Yuri: “You left it in the living room, but I moved it to the bedroom when I was preparing for the party. I charged it for you as well.” Lukas: “Thanks, babe. You’re a lifesaver.” Yuri: “Why do you not escort the rest of the boys back to the club, when you depart? At this rate, we will not have enough room for the invited guests, who will be arriving here shortly.” Lukas: “Sure. I noticed we’re going to have a couple more than we planned.” *nods at Killian* Killian: “Killian.” Lukas: “Luke. Is there a particular reason why the girls have you backed into a wall?” Killian: “I made them angry.” Lukas: “Yeeeeah, it’s best not to do that, unless you had the forethought to wear a cup.” Danny: *enters and chimes in* “Hell, with Kumi you might need a full set of body armor.” Yuri: “He made Lark cry.” Danny: *shakes head* “Not cool, man! Lark’s a sweetheart.” Lukas (musingly): “Yeah, normally, I don’t like to see one of my own beat down, but in this case, carry on.” Kumi: *sighs* “Never mind. The moment’s gone. We’ll finish this later, eh, Yuri?” Yuri: “Well…I do need to arrange the flowers before the guests arrive.” Killian: “Right, so, I’ll juice catch you lot later, then.” *edges quickly towards the door and exits* Kumi (philosophically): “The hunt’s the best part, anyway. Cornering your prey too soon is no fun; thus, this strategy will be more satisfying in the long-run.” Lukas & Danny: *gaze at Kumi with mixed expressions of horror and amusement* Lukas: “And, on that blood chilling note, we need to get going, Dan. We’re in for a full night, so we best get started.” Danny: “Full night, huh?” Lukas: “Yeah, the guys have made a PowerPoint presentation of helpful tips on what to do on your wedding night. We thought you might need a little guidance in that area…*sarcastic smile* considering what a choirboy you’ve been up ‘til now.” Danny: *snorts* “More like I should make my own presentation to teach y’all a thing or two about pleasing the ladies. I’m an international Don friggin’ Juan, big bro. God only knows how many chicks there’ve been…” Fashion Credits **Any doll enhancements (i.e. freckles, piercings, eye color changes) were done by me unless otherwise stated.** Danny Jeans: Mattel – James Dean – distressed and cuffs ripped out Wife Beater – Mattel – Ken Playline Underwear Pack Shirt: Fashion Royalty – Homme/NF – Style Strategy Lukas Boots: Fashion Royalty – Homme/NF – Rock Ringmaster Lukas Skull Belt: me Bind Me Necklace – Knife’s Edge Designs (me) Doll is a Style Strategy Lukas.

REBECCA TRAISTER, whose coverage of the 2008 presidential election for Salon confirmed her to be a gifted cultural observer, offers a startling appraisal of what the campaign meant for all of us. Though the election didn’t give us our first woman president or vice president, the exhilarating campaign was nonetheless transformative for American women and for the nation. In Big Girls Don’t Cry, her electrifying, incisive and highly entertaining first book, Traister tells a terrific story and makes sense of a moment in American history that changed the country’s narrative in ways that no one anticipated.Similar posts:
It was all as unpredictable as it was riveting: Hillary Clinton’s improbable rise, her fall and her insistence (to the consternation of her party and the media) on pushing forward straight through to her remarkable phoenix flight from the race; Sarah Palin’s attempt not only to fill the void left by Clinton, but to alter the very definition of feminism and claim some version of it for conservatives; liberal rapture over Barack Obama and the historic election of our first African-American president; the media microscope trained on Michelle Obama, harsher even than the one Hillary had endured fifteen years earlier. Meanwhile, media women like Katie Couric and Rachel Maddow altered the course of the election, and comedians like Tina Fey and Amy Poehler helped make feminism funny.
What did all this mean to the millions of people who were glued to their TV sets, and for the country, its history and its future?
As Traister sees it, the 2008 election was good for women. The campaign for the presidency reopened some of the most fraught American conversations—about gender, race and generational difference, about sexism on the left and feminism on the right—difficult discussions that had been left unfinished but that are crucial to further perfecting our union.
The election was also catalytic, shaping the perspectives of American women and men from different generations and backgrounds, altering the way that all of us will approach questions of women and power far into the future. When Clinton cried, when Palin reached for her newborn at the end of a vice presidential debate, when Couric asked a series of campaign-ending questions, the whole country was watching women’s history—American history—being made.
Throughout, Traister weaves in her own experience as a thirtysomething feminist sorting through all the events and media coverage—vacillating between Clinton and Obama and forced to face tough questions about her own feminism, the women’s movement, race and the different generational perspectives of women working toward political parity some ninety years after their sex was first enfranchised.
It was a time of enormous change, and there is no better guide through that explosive, infuriating, heartbreaking and sometimes hilarious year than Rebecca Traister. Big Girls Don’t Cry offers an enduring portrait of dramatic cultural and political shifts brought about by this most historic of American contests.
