"Society has put up so many boundaries, so many limitations on what’s right and wrong that it’s almost impossible to get a pure thought out. It’s like a little kid, a little boy, looking at colors, and no one told him what colors are good, before somebody tells you you shouldn’t like pink because that’s for girls, or you’d instantly become a gay two-year-old. Why would anyone pick blue over pink? Pink is obviously a better color. Everyone’s born confident, and everything’s taken away from you."
"What I’m looking for in a character of either gender, and unfortunately it’s the women who are most often shafted in this sense, is that I’m looking for agency. They need to have something that they want, an interior life, and what happens with female characters frequently is…you can rob them of that and turn them into a plot device."

I gotta say, Sarah as Cosima was pretty awesome, though I feel like Delphine should have figured out who she was kissing when Sarah went all “gah kissing a girl” and froze on her. But no. It took her another minute or two.
It’s a toss up between this, Allison singing and dancing with the mop, and Fe’s assless pants as my favorite part of the new season. I’VE WAITED SOOO LONG FOR THIS SHOW TO COME BACK. SO SO LONG.
