Behold one of the most powerful pop-culture messages of my lifetime.
"It was a thing of slick, exhilarating beauty. A thing that was, yes, so trivial and packaged that it really should, I realize, be truly meaningless in this summer of real-world, non-staged, non-shimmery police brutality and restricted rights and horrifying incivility. And yet, despite its superfluity, there it was, the most powerful, and certainly the most highly polished pop-culture message of my lifetime: that attention to gender inequity is alive, revived, and that it is powered today by a broader, more diverse, more youthful and far glossier energy than it has been in the past four decades."
