“Eisenberg lives in New York with his girlfriend, travels by bicycle — “Does it sound obnoxious to say I ride a bicycle everywhere?” — and says he’s rarely recognized. “I have one female fan,” he says. “But she lives with me. I’m not aware of any others.” He pauses. “I’m sorry. Am I saying the right things?”—Jesse Eisenberg interview in Rolling Stone. (via nosrsly)
He’s allowed to date whomever he wants. Who cares if he’s dated two girls who have been Miss England?
In order to imply that Danny is being hypocritical by saying he prizes inner beauty over outer beauty, given that he has/is dated/ing two women who won Miss England, you have to approach this with an assumption that no woman who has ever won Miss England could possibly be beautiful inside. That women with inner beauty do not fit the beauty pageant style of looks, ever. I try to just let things be, a lot of the time, but sometimes the way women are talked about just — I can’t pass it by this time unremarked. To say a woman must either be beautiful or good is a shitty, shitty thing, a misogynistic thing, a horrific thing.
I don’t know much about Laura Coleman, the first Miss England Danny dated, but she seems pretty excellent as a person. I follow Georgia Horsley, the second Miss England Danny has dated (and she’s still his current girlfriend omg they are so cute I cannot even), on twitter and she is wonderful, beautiful inside and out. Danny dated/is dating these women because he likes them as people. He’s also attracted to them physically, but that doesn’t mean it’s the most important thing to him.
I just, I can’t stand it when women are polarised like this, the either/or that states no woman who is “conventionally attractive” (blonde, blue-eyed, white, slim, able-bodied) can have any other qualities. They’re seen as an empty vessel of only aesthetic merit, and it makes me so angry. Dismissing human beings based on what they look like is a shitty thing to do.
