SBG 84: Little Women with Irene Tu

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out with stand-up comedian, actor, and writer Irene Tu (@irene_tu) to talk about the 2019 film adaptation of Little Women. Little Women as a book is already gay, but this film really showcases it by choosing the gayest cast possible. When you put Saoirse Ronan, Florence Pugh, Emma Watson, and Laura Dern into a movie, you can’t really expect us to believe it isn’t gay. The basics of the story is that life was perfect for the sisters until men got involved and then it all went downhill. The book has been called out for being “radical” for its portrayals of women, but we all know radical is just code for gay. We analyze the characters and some ships get a little questionable, but it’s not our fault that they’re written that way! We know one thing for sure, Little Women Should’ve Been Gay.
