Gender Fuck Thursday: Female Excellence Edition

A new year is a new chance to shine light on deserving women. So let’s start off 2020 with a by no means comprehensive list of excellent women whose excellence I would like to see a lot more of on the large and small screen – and really all over – this year. Now wouldn't that be most excellent? And, if I may, a gentle plea to put them on the screen wearing suits. Just saying, they all know how excellent they look wearing them.

Saoirse Ronan

She was excellent as Jo in “Little Women,” but then she is excellent in everything.


She was excellent in “The Farewell,” and I am soooo looking forward to “Nora from Queens.”

Kristin Scott Thomas

She was excellent as a lesbian in “Fleabag,” and we should see her as a lesbian in more things.

Brandi Carlile

She is excellent each time she opens her mouth, and here’s hoping I get to see her do it again live this year.

Janelle Monae

She was excellent with Tessa Thompson, and here’s hoping they can be excellent some more together in the new year.

Lena Headey

She is so much more excellent than Cersei Lannister, and she deserves a better on-screen fate in 2020.

Tatiana Maslany

She is excellence personified and WHY HASN’T ANYONE CAST HER AS THE STAR OF THEIR SHOW YET?

Jameela Jamil

She is so excellent on “The Good Place,” and if she isn’t snapped up immediately for some wonderfully comedic starring role everyone in forking stupid. But then, look who our president is.

Katie McGrath

Yeah I know she’s still making excellent flirt eyes at Supergirl, but wouldn’t it be so excellent if she also got to make flirt eyes at a lady who is unquestionably lesbian in another unquestionably lesbian role? Just a thought.

Ellen Page

So “The Umbrella Academy” wasn’t as excellent as I’d hoped, but there is always hope for Season 2 and her excellently creepy new white eyes.

Lupita Nyong'o & Danai Gurira

They’re were excellent in “Black Panther,” now make a superhero movie about them where they’re a couple. Look, as long as we’re wishing for excellent things.

Tina Fey

My most excellent Fake TV/Movie Wife will always make any list about excellence. Period.

Cate Blanchett

Look, I’ve had the most excellent idea. “Carol 2.” Everything gets revived these days, why not the greatest lesbian movie of the last decade? As I was saying, excellent idea.

I applaud all your excellent ideas:)

I’m wiping the drool from my keyboard to bring you gossip. Tatiana Maslany Was seen at local LA Lesbian party Gay Ass-trology. But why would she go to a lesbian dance party?
Just sayin...

Carol 2: the smolder continues

Paris, early morning sun lights up entwined limbs glistening with sweat,
Carol & Therese kissing.

Wait...does carol ever sweat?

Happy New Year, Snarks!

It's 2020, are your lovely eyes still 2020?!

Mine aren't unfortunately...


'She (Saoirse Ronan) was excellent as Jo in “Little Women,” but then she is excellent in everything.'

If you say so, Snarks darling. However, she has stated that she would like to play that perennial favourite, Constance de Markievicz,... with an Irish accent which would be a travesty to be sure!

You're welcome. :)

Please, at your earliest convenience, forward this to Ronan before she commits a frightful blunder!

Personally, I think Gentleman Jack would make a better Markievicz. She's the right height and we know she can carry off the requisite accent and swagger beautifully.
