Get a dose of encouragement from Neil Gaiman’s New Year’s wish.
Speaking of the New Year, thank you Sally for reminding me that this exists!
I’ve always wanted to see what would happen if you took a James Bond movie and changed absolutely nothing regarding the plot, but flipped the genders.
James Jenna Bond dresses classy, gets into fistfights on top of trains, drinks and quips a lot, saves the main studly dude-in-distress (the secondary dude-in-distress has already been gruesomely killed), and makes out with him as they sail into the sunset. That has yet to happen, but here’s a nifty list of gender swaps that did happen.
Ronald Reagan writes marriage advice to his son: “It does take quite a man to remain attractive and to be loved by a woman who has heard him snore, seen him unshaven, tended him while he was sick and washed his dirty underwear. Do that and keep her still feeling a warm glow and you will know some very beautiful music.”
