So, I had this dream tonight. Usually, I don’t remember much about my dreams, but this one was kind of interesting, so it stuck.
I was a married man*. I don’t know exactly what my job was but it revolved around making feminist analysis** of various things. Among them was a cartoon for kids drawn in the style of Kim Possible***. The cartoon was about a husband and wife going on some sorts of missions and always ended with them in bed, where the camera angle was such that it came from behind the guy’s shoulder (showing only his hair and ear) and focussed completely on the woman’s face. Anyway, all they ever did in the end was the woman refusing to have sex with the man****.
I think it’s kind of weird that I would be a man doing a feminist analysis of a TV show I invented myself. But, people, interpret away! I’d like some insight here…
*That happens rather frequently, I mean that I dream about being a man. No, that’s not right. I don’t dream about it, it usually really isn’t a big deal, I just am a man. I think this interesting in and of itself because I’m really sure about being a woman, both through my body and through my mind, but it’s not the point.
**What the hell is the plural of analysis?
***Or, as I refer to it, the pretty ugly modern style.
****Yes, I know it was supposed to be a kids’ show. Tell my subconscious.
