    Reblogged from heidisaman

    More than half the questions I am asked are about the politics of the way I look. What it feels like to be not skinny/dark-skinned/a minority/not conventionally pretty/female/etc. It’s not very interesting to me, but I know it’s interesting to people reading an interview. Sometimes I get jealous of white male showrunners when 90 percent of their questions are about characters, story structure, creative inspiration, or, hell, even the business of getting a show on the air. Because as a result the interview of me reads like I’m interested only in talking about my outward appearance and the politics of being a minority and how I fit into Hollywood, blah blah blah. I want to shout, “Those were the only questions they asked!?

  1. Much of Mindy Kaling’s humor is rooted in something that might seem  unfeasible: using logic to explore American culture. But it works — and  works well — because Kaling uses a type of circular logic that’s all her  own. Just consider this recent Tweet: “Can everyone buy my book please?  I wanna quit the business and homeschool my kids real weird.”
