This weekend my brother recommended that we watch Captain America and Real Steel. These were not my first choices, and I complained. But he was right: they're fun and refreshing. I'm glad I saw them. My only disappointment was that in both movies the lead woman's most crucial line was three words: "Go get 'em!"
Can you imagine a movie in which that was the lead man's main line?
It would be a little disappointing, wouldn't it?
I should add, though, that I'm glad those women supported their men; I just hope it was reciprocated. I've been lucky that way. My whole life I've been surrounded by men who were rooting for me: my brothers, my dad, my cousins, my professors, and now my philosopher. It's nice to have someone who'll tell me, "Go get 'em." Even though I realize that isn't their only, or even their most important, line.
