I want a world where we congratulate each other on becoming postmenopausal.…
You know that film Turning Red? I love it so much. I wish 11.5 year old Mona had it when she first got her period. Now, 55 and a quarter year old Mona wants a sequel about the mother's menopause transition

And you know that shit they say about cis women becoming "invisible" postmenopause?

Fuck that shit. First of all, "invisible" to who? I feel like running up to older women and yelling “I KNOW! I FUCKING KNOW!”

They are all I see!…

“This is one of the reasons why I’m talking about it…There are very few women who’ve been in top positions in politics, but of those who have been, if you think about Angela Merkel, Hillary Clinton, Thatcher they must all have gone through this,” Nicola Sturgeon on #menopause
“And yet I can’t find anybody that has spoken about it and that would help me, I think, if I could go and hear or read somebody who had the same kind of anxieties that I have about the very public nature of the job.”… #menopause
October is Menopause Awareness Month, also known as World Menopause Month.

We need that awareness and more of it every day.

I've written 14 essays on #perimenopause and aging for FEMINIST GIANT, which are all free to read and share.

#EverythingEverywhereAllAtOnce is the perfect menopause allegory film. I don’t care if that’s not what The Daniels had in mind when they wrote and directed it. It’s art. It’s out there. And my menopause claims it!…
The rollercoaster of a film that is @allatoncemovie is the first time I feel someone has heard and given voice to the flood of “what if’s” that perimenopause has brought as well as the physical & emotional changes we are squeezed through to emerge as the superheroes we need to be

The very first time I saw the trailer for @allatoncemovie, I said "This is a film about menopause!"

The very first time I saw the film, I was convinced "This is a film about menopause!" I saw it three times and wrote this… #EverythingEverywhereAllAtOnce
And I have now become known to the The Daniels--who wrote and directed @allatoncemovie--as the "middle aged woman who wrote an essay that said #EverythingEverywhereAllAtOnce is about menopause."

Here The Daniels tell Daniel Radcliffe that on @A24 podcast…
And here too: "I read this incredible review from a middle-aged woman who basically saw this film as a menopause movie. She said, "Oh, this film is the perfect metaphor for what I'm going through right now, as I'm going through menopause."…

We are so excited every time someone shares a story of their experience watching our film with their families. Especially when the film leads to healing conversations. #EverythingEverywhereAllAtOnce
On the other hand, we’ve heard from many people, especially children of immigrants, who wish they could share the film with their parents, but aren’t sure how to start the conversation

(we get it, our film can be fucking weird).
So in honor of our film being available to watch at home, we asked the incredible Walter Chaw @mangiotto to help craft a simple message to help prepare your parents for the wild ride that is our film and place it in a context that might make more sense to them. Image

How often do you see a film that centres a woman in her early 60s who wants to fuck? #GoodLucktoYouLeoGrande
How often do films center a woman in her early 60s? I am 54yo and can barely watch films & TV shows these days because they’re too often about high school students or 31yos whose dilemmas are too far in my past to care about & whose parents are too peripheral to keep my attention
Heteronormative patriarchy’s designated shelf life for cisgender women is the age at which we cease to be its walking incubators. And yet here is a woman who not only wants to fuck… #GoodLucktoYouLeoGrande

I love all my essays but I am especially fond of these two--about two of my favourite films recently--and thrilled that they are right next to each other at the top of my most popular essays:

On @allatoncemovie… #EverythingEverywhereAllAtOnce
Films that center older women are important. They keep showing us women with options.

We understand why women are denied a three-dimensional life, why their imagination is flattened out of daring to want any more than what they have.… #EverythingEverywhere

“Bitch” and “cunt” are not the worst things you could call a woman. Selfish is. Knowing what you want and taking it is filed under “selfish” in patriarchy’s dictionary. And by the time we meet Nancy, she is a woman determined, finally, to be selfish. #GoodLucktoYouLeoGrande
I cried as my selfishness met hers, as I recognized the heady terror of being done, finally, with obeying. I wrote about @LeoGrandeFilm… #GoodLucktoYouLeoGrande
In one of their earliest scenes together, Leo asks Nancy “Why won’t you take what you want when it’s right here within reach?” He is what she wants. He is right there. Yet she wants to cancel the whole thing several times.

She was never allowed to want. #GoodLucktoYouLeoGrande

I've watched it three times already. It went places I was not expecting. Essay coming soon...
As I've said, I am 54yo and I can barely watch films or TV shows these days because they are about either high school students or people who are 31 years old.

Which is one of the reasons I love #EverythingEverywhereAllAtOnce which is now streaming…
I'm writing about pleasure & desire, what we're allowed to want, what we're allowed to "take," how to free ourselves from shame. And Good Luck to You, Leo Grande jumps into that fray. Until my essay read an excerpt from my essay in #ThisArabIsQueer…

Aight, beautiful people! Let’s talk about the movie #EverythingEverywhereAllAtOnce (share your thoughts too!) #Spoilers

First, I wanna make it clear that I think this is a deeply artistic and well-done illustration of the plight and beauty of the human experience.

A thread 🧵 Joy, Waymond, Evelyn and Gong Gong sit in the IRS Office.
.I believe Humans have only ever been meant for the here and now.

But the universal plight of being human is the way that the twistedness of the cosmos fractures us beyond where and when we’re supposed to be:

.Even hope— that forward-oriented trust in a reliable source or person— is a secondary symptom of suffering, of the twistedness of the cosmos.

If everything was as it should be here and now,

there would be no need for hope.

I love it when someone excitedly shares that they've just seen @allatoncemovie! And I love it even more when they tell me they read my essay about it.

Essay: The Menopause Multiverse… #EverythingEverywhereAllAtOnce
There's a wonderful scene when Evelyn, a Chinese-American woman played by Michelle Yeoh, is called on to jump between universes–”’verse jump”–to accumulate skills from the alternative lives all the other Evelyns are living to save the multiverse from a “great evil.”
It just so happens that a version of Evelyn is given this monumental news in a janitor’s closet just down the hall from the open-plan office where Evelyn of this universe, her husband, and her father are in a meeting w/IRS agent (the delightfully unrecognizable Jamie Lee Curtis)

Thoughts on “Everything Everywhere All At Once”

I’ll be thinking about this movie for a long long time. 👏 👏 👏


1. The three main characters were each wonderful. Michelle Yeo (Crazy Rich Asians, Crouching Tiger) was pitch perfect in every universe she occupied. Stephanie Hsu (Marvelous Miss Maisel) was cool as hell. And Ke Huy Quan (Indiana Jones, Goonies) was sweet and lovable.

(And Jamie Lee Curtis was something else.)

One of the things I love most about @A24's @allatoncemovie is that it centers an older woman of colour and all the lives she could have had… #EverythingEverywhereAllAtOnce
Michelle Yeoh is Evelyn, a Chinese-American woman, who is called on to jump between universes–”’verse jump” in the film’s vernacular–to accumulate skills from the alternative lives all the other Evelyns are living to save the multiverse from a “great evil”
White women are allowed sliding doors in mainstream films, e.g. Gwyneth Paltrow who was 26 years old when she starred in Sliding Doors in 1998. Michelle Yeoh is 59. To ponder “what if” and take stock of your life at 26 is not the same as when you are 59. #EverythingEverywhere

I slept 7 hours straight last night and it’s a fucking miracle. #Perimenopause

📷 @rerutled Mona from the shoulders up,...
Talking of which: it’s a kick to see The Daniels, who wrote and directed #EverythingEverywhereAllAtOnce reference my essay on @A24’s @allatoncemovie… h/t @voixdemichele Text: DS: Yes. I read this ...
Now, whenever I want anyone to know how utterly wrenching–and also liberating– it is to go through perimenopause, I will say, nay YELL: EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE.… #EverythingEverywhereAllAtOnce

I saw #EverythingEverywhereAllAtOnce

I doubt if many–if any–reviews will say it so, I will: THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT PERIMENOPAUSE IS! It is everything, It is everywhere. And it is all at once.
Everytime Evelyn rolls her eyes, says she’s not ready to fight, picks herself up again, bloodied but becoming steadily determined to break more bones of anyone who gets in her way, I want to point to the screen and shout “That’s it!” #EverythingEverywhereAllAtOnce #Perimenopause
Between crushing anxiety, hot flashes, red hot rage and brain fog, who does not want to beat the whole world up?

I LOVE this film… #EverythingEverywhereAllAtOnce

god I love my people, western recipes always confuse me bc they're a series of steps you have to memorize with no explanation about why you're doing each step, whereas chinese recipes begin not with a story but "here is the underlying conceptual system you must understand first" HOW TO BREW TEA Invariables  and Variables effect taste:
like how delightful to divide tea into constants and variables, chinese just like… encodes math, sometimes; and also, can I just say that I love that "Mood: The feelings." affects flavor
overall I would say that sino culture is far more direct about "there is an underlying system, and once you learn the rules, you won't have to memorize very much," whereas US culture like… *dies while gesturing painfully at math education in this country*
