Finding Metaphor

If you’ve been here any length of time you will know a few things about me. I love women in tank tops and I love women in a finely tailored suit. Basically, I love women, in general. And I love the movie “Finding Nemo,” which I watch as a comfort film when I need a little oceanic hug. It goes without saying that I also love its long-awaited sequel, “Finding Dory.” I mean, it’s pretty much everything you love from the first film, plus otters. So I, like many of you no doubt, found it more than ironic that on the same weekend our new president signs a ban on refugees and, for all intents and purposes, a ban on Muslims entering America, the first film he screens in the White House is this very one. Because, as America’s Favorite Lesbian Ellen explains above, the plot of “Finding Dory” follows someone who crosses an ocean to find her family only to be detained against her will before they can be reunited. So, there’s that.

Anyway, who is up for a cuddle party with democracy?

I know this blog gets a lot of crossover with After Ellen. The editor scooped a great interview with Kate Moennig. The new site has come a long way but I still miss some of the writers. Having to hopscotch all over finding them is a let down. Hope some sort of resolution will be made (truce) and some return.
