Does it ever just break your heart that Mindy Kaling and BJ Novak are not married?
I celebrated Havdalah on Saturday with a bunch of my Jewish friends and a super cool lady rabbi and an assortment of grad students/adults. And it felt so good and I felt very Jewish. All prayer should be as almost like delicious as that. I really couldn’t tell you why I’ve started to get more in touch with my Jewish heritage/identity except that spiritual yoga is calming, progressive theology is rad, singing and drinking with Jewish is fun, wearing a my hamsa every day is comforting, having something in common with my grandparents is lovely, and traveling to Israel will be amazing. It’s weird though because I know so little about Judaism as a tradition and like going into that with 1) little existing knowledge 2) the intention of nonreligion/secularism 3) queerness of some variety, you’re going to get people judging you for “doing it wrong.” Not Jewish enough, not secular enough, not queer enough, etc. But last night assured me that there are nonjudgmental Jewish (female, diverse, queer) spaces. I fee strongly enough about this, I actually just used the word “space” without rolling my eyes @ myself.
THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
- finding someone aesthetically pleasing
- being sexually attracted to someone
- being romantically attracted to someone

It occurred to me, after reading this excellent post on women in fiction and the Bechdel Test, that perhaps you could construct one to address issues of POC and race. The analog seemed obvious, so I just wrote it out.
1. It has to have two POC in it.
2. Who talk to each other.
3. About something other than a white person.
Now, you see the obvious issue there, right? Yeah, it has to do with number one. Even in stories that feature prominent POC characters, it is so rare to find more than one present, let alone who know each other well enough to talk to each other…
Brooklyn Nine Nine and Chicago Fire are the only examples that spring to my mind.
