First of all I really

First of all I really enjoyed The Heidi Chronicles . It was an interesting perspective on three decades of women's issues.

In response to Abby's and Jessy's posts, I guess I want to sort of continue the dialogue about the Peter-Heidi relationship as a representation of a sort of straight woman/gay man alliance. It was pointed out that Peter failed as an "ally" when he silenced Heidi etc but Peter was also semi-victimized in this story. He was turned away from the "women's only" march for being "paternal" and "caustic". I think this goes with the theme of "feminism" being inclusive only on the surface.
