  • Jenn S

    Excellent job! You always interview people I ways want to hear from! Bravo!

  • Monika

    I also loved the part about equality and then the finger and all the swearing kind of took away from the beautiful message. Swearing is not cool or sexy or lady like no matter what is the situation. 🙂

    • dute

      umm… a woman does not necessarily have to bee lady like

    • How about we can just BE !

      I disagree. Whether you’re a man or woman, there’s a time and place to conduct yourself accordingly, such as in a business meeting. But when you’re amongst friends and discussing personal topics, you shouldn’t have to censor yourself. Zoe & Amanda were having a one on one honest conversation as friends and allowed us to be privy to it. Why would Zoe be viewed as unladylike in that context? If a man was talking to his buddies and cursed, no one would think anything of it. But if a woman does the same thing, it is considered inappropriate. That perpetuates the double-standard against woman.

    • I agree with you …

    • Monika

      Swearing is vulgar and not attractive on woman or man! When a sailor talks to another sailor at the pub using this kind of language than yes no one would think anything of it. I agree with you on that!

    It was very disappointing that Mrs. Saldana can really only express herself with vulgar language and is not articulate enough to express herself in an intelligent manner. It is such sad state of affairs the world we live in and the people who have become role models for the young are little better than savages.

    • What an uneducated and aggressive statement David .
      SAVAGE :
      (of an animal or force of nature) Fierce, violent, and uncontrolled: “a savage beast”.
      (chiefly in historical or literary contexts) A member of a people regarded as primitive and uncivilized.

    • David

      My statements were correct – She is uneducated and a perfect example of the modern savage that our media driven society has produced. They are unable to articulate or express themselves with out the use of vulgarity and fierce jesters and actions such as calling names and shooting the finger. Look around and you will see the modern savages in our society. They fornicate just like just savages, care only about themselves which is worst than savages, tattoo their bodies, and live in moral relativism. So to put it simply, she is unable to express herself in an educated and articulate manner. She is full of anger and rage. She is a perfect example of a person that has regressed from civilized society.

    • Monika

      Does all that swearing sound educated and the finger shooting calm like to you?
