Lunchtime Poll

Lunchtime Poll

For today’s lunchtime poll, we’re begging for your input on what you’d like to read more about on Persephone, with our handy new poll plug-in.   There’s still a traditional lunchtime poll question at the end, but if you could take a minute and click a box, we’d muchly appreciate it.

For this poll, you can only select one option.  We’d love to hear from the lurkers as well as those of you who’ve made comments.   We’ll use your input as we plan out the next few weeks worth of content and activities for the blog.  Thanks a lot for participating!

And for the write-in question, which fictional female character (in a movie, book, TV show, comic or video game) do you identify with the most, and why?

If by identify with you mean – are – Robin Scherbatsky from How I Met Your Mother. Robin’s take on relationships/sex/life in general match mine almost completely. The only difference is, I’m not a gun-toting Canadian. It’s pretty ridiculous, actually.

I read a lot but have trouble really identifying with the protagonists, as they tend to be drug addicts/prostitutes/etc…things I’m not. So I went with a cheesy pop-culture reference instead.

First, it was Turtle Wexler in The Westing Game, because she was clever and good at figuring things out, which is how I fancied myself. Nowadays, I think I aspire to be CJ Cregg, minus the successful career, knowledge of foreign policy, impressive rolodex and Timothy Busfield, but actually hit somewhere around late-era Roseanne Conner.

Also, this poll plug-in kind of sucks, sorry!

I need to update the characters I identify most with. My first thought was Suzanna Kaysen in Girl, Interrupted and the fictionalized Elizabeth Wurtzel in Prozac Nation. But my identity (thankfully) is really moving beyond Depressed Girl as I am getting older.I thought that the characters played by Maya Rudolph and John Krasinski in Away We Go were really representative of me and Mr. Furious as a couple, but not necessarily as individuals.Aaagh I have no one I identify with!! With whom I identify? Sorry Sally J.
