I forever weep at this skit. 

I try to think about the first time this skit was thought of and how it turned into the hilarious train wreck that it is 

Definitely beef.

“We fled to the Philippines, which was under American occupation at the time. But it wasn’t long before the Japanese took over the islands. We were living in Manila, and when the Japanese occupied the city, they began to teach us to read and write Japanese. When the Americans came to retake the city, they invaded from the north, and the Japanese blew up the bridges and barricaded themselves in the southern part of the city where we lived. Shells were falling all around us, because the Japanese had stationed a gun encampment across from our house. One morning, we decided to make a run for the hospital, so that we could put ourselves under the protection of the Red Cross. Our neighbors were running in front of us, pushing their belongings on a pushcart, when they stepped on a land mine and the whole family was killed. We kept running, but when we got to the main street, there was a checkpoint and we weren’t allowed to cross. So we hid beneath a house, and soon we were discovered by Japanese soldiers. They lined us all up against the wall to be executed. We begged and begged and begged for our lives. They finally allowed my mother and the children to step aside, but they told my father to stay. My mother dropped to her knees and asked the Japanese commander to imagine it was his family. And he finally let all of us go.”

“Whenever I saw her, I felt like I had been living in another country, doing moderately well in another language, and then she showed up speaking English and suddenly I could speak with all the complexity and nuance that I hadn’t realized was gone. With Lucy I was a native speaker.”― Ann Patchett, Truth and Beauty

Um, so I just put two and two together and apparently this very successful fashion photographer is Ansel Elgort’s dad? WHERE THE FUCK IS THE “OMG NEPOTISM” BACKLASH AGAINST THAT KID. WHY DOES NOBODY CARE ABOUT NEPOTISM WHEN MEN BENEFIT FROM IT. (I have a cooooooooooouple of ideas why but man oh man this really sums it up.)

yeah but liz you have to remember that when girls are born into privilege they’re SPOILED but when boys are born into privilege they’re PEDIGREED.

^^
I’m also pretty certain that it has to do with how quickly people are to assume that women are just worse at things than men are, and the hatred for women who are born into famous/media-type families stems from the idea that oh, they must not have been good enough to become successful the old-fashioned way, so they just got their mommy and daddy to make a couple calls. Easiest example of this double-standard: look at the way the public treats Jason Schwartzman and Nicolas Cage versus Sofia Coppola, or if you even just want to compare directors with famous families, Sofia Coppola versus Nick Cassavettes. Look at how nobody points out that Nick Kroll’s dad is an honest-to-God billionaire, or that BJ Novak’s dad is one of the most successful celebrity ghostwriters of all time, but everybody wants to talk about how Lena Dunham and Amy Schumer and Rashida Jones are just coasting on their family names. And so on.
