“Born Sexy Yesterday,” or “I Was Born in This Catsuit and it was Literally Last Night” | Vol. 4 / No. 27.1

Hello dear readers,

I had a hard week. So for this week I’m just linking to the awesome video that identifies the “Born Sexy Yesterday” Trope, which I have noticed before but never had a name for. And now I have to think problematic things about the The Fifth Element. Which is sad. But remember that we can be critical of things and still love them. (Like I’m slightly critical of the last minute of the video I just linked. This is why we can’t have nice things.)

 

Because uggghhhhhhh.
