I also think that it is interesting, in terms of power (relationships of power) that the director of Girls has a small budget and creative license and little pressure to attract audiences, at least according to the blog post. Is that freedom?
What would a woman of color director do with those kinds of working conditions? What would Kasi Lemons, or Julie Dash, Nzinga Stewart or an Asian, Latina, Indian woman do with those kinds of working conditions? What would she create?

I want to see me on television, not me physically, but a type of me; an aspect of me; not even necessarily exactly like me. I want to see someone who I could be or who could be me and it starts most decidely with that someone being female, black, and lesbian.
I want to write it but am afraid to start and have it dwindle to nothing as things with me do.
