Do not look for my heart any more; the beasts have eaten it.
Charles Baudelaire, Flowers of Evil, (1857)
I don’t want to do rape stories on the show, because I don’t find them entertaining. I think that they’re exploitative. There are some rape elements intrinsic in the novels that I’m like how do we shift that story so it’s not about rape. I just feel very strongly as a feminist and somebody who likes women. I just can’t derive any sort of entertainment pleasure from it. So that’s why we steer away from those things.

I have come to realize that my body is something I need to love, because within my body my ancestors live. Within my veins the same blood that ran through theirs runs in mine; that within the space between my cheek and my jaw, are stories older than time. I have to remember that within every nook of my body, within every cell that creates who I am, my ancestors are there.

When you removed the gag that was keeping these black mouths shut, what were you hoping for? That they would sing your praises?
Jean-Paul Sartre, ”Black Orpheus” (1948)
