Daniel Frazese Reveals How Playing Damian in Mean Girls Helped Him Come Out as Gay

Daniel Franzese played one of the most memorable queer characters in teen comedy history — and the role actually helped him embrace his own sexuality.

In 2004’s Mean Girls, Frazese played Damian, Cady (Lindsay Lohan) and Janis’s (Lizzy Caplan) gay best friend who was responsible for some of the film’s most beloved quotes, from “You go, Glen Coco!” to “I want my pink shirt back!”

But while he portrayed an out and proud gay man, Franzese didn’t come out publicly for 10 years after the movie came out. And his role in the movie played a part in his coming out.

“I think part of the reason it took me so long to feel comfortable with who I was, was I didn’t have the same referential point,” Franzese, now 40, tells PEOPLE. “What Damian did for a lot of queer people and people of size — which I found out later on — it gave them an identity in pop culture where they weren’t made fun of. He’s never made fun of for being big or for being gay.”

Over the years, Franzese learned how many people the movie helped own their sexuality.

“In 2014, I got this fan letter — it said, ‘I don’t know if you’re gay or not; it doesn’t matter.’ It totally matters. We were dealing with Prop 8. We were dealing with marriage equality. All these other issues. And I was on the frontline of all those issues. I had not shied away from being out. I just never really said it professionally,” the actor recalls.

“Then I got this letter, and the guy was like: ‘I’m a grown man now, but I was beat up for being a sissy, I was beat up for being chubby in 8th grade, then you’re movie came out. And in 9th grade, on the first day, the popular senior girls came up to me and said, ‘You’re like Damian. Come sit with us.’ He was like, ‘I know you drastically changed my high school career,’” Frazese says.

That fan letter encouraged the actor to acknowledge his sexuality publicly.

“It just moved me beyond words,” he says. “It was very complex human emotions to feel. And I know that I affected a lot of people’s lives in that movie. I think that that’s such an honor and something that I don’t take lightly.”

A post shared by Daniel Franzese (@whatsupdanny) on Aug 1, 2018 at 11:21pm PDT

//www.instagram.com/embed.js

After coming out, Franzese took on another complex gay role, playing an HIV-positive man in HBO’s Looking. And these days, Franzese has ventured into standup comedy. He’s currently on the road for his “Yass! You’re Amazing!” comedy tour and is set to headline the Burbank Comedy Festival this weekend.

“Once I came out in 2014, I had the itch,” Franzese says. “I’ve always wanted to do standup my whole life. I attempted to do it early on in my career, but I felt inauthentic — I always trying to change my voice so I wouldn’t sound gay or not say a gay thing. It was so stupid. Now that I feel so comfortable in who I am, I’m able to talk about anything I want freely.”

Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio ‘Said No’ to Playing Lovers in Brokeback Mountain, Says Gus Van Sant

Picture a young Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt falling into a forbidden love as they herd sheep through the Wyoming mountains.

Ang Lee’s critically acclaimed Brokeback Mountain (2005), which famously starred Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal in Academy Award-nominated performances, could have been a different film altogether, Milk director Gus Van Sant recently revealed to Indiewire.

The Oscar-nominated director, best known for Good Will Hunting (1997) and My Own Private Idaho (1991), said he was pitched the opportunity to direct the gay romance before Lee signed on.

“I was working on it, and I felt like we needed a really strong cast, like a famous cast. That wasn’t working out. I asked the usual suspects: Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Ryan Phillippe. They all said no,” Van Sant recalled. “Nobody wanted to do it.”

“What I could have done, and what I probably should have done, was cast more unknowns, not worried about who were the lead actors,” he added.

Ironically enough, DiCaprio and Pitt will finally appear together onscreen in Quentin Tarantino’s controversial movie about the Manson murders, titled Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

The director also revealed that he came close to directing another gay classic, Luca Guadagnino’s Call Me By Your Name (2017), which went on to win an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay.

“I don’t think it would have panned out the way it did if I had directed it. I think it was great,” he said.

Van Sant’s latest movie, Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot, is now playing in select theaters.

11 Times The Oscars Honored White Actors For Playing People Of Color

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has made strides to become more diverse in recent years, but there’s a long road ahead to make up for the organization’s long legacy of exclusion.

Throughout its 90-year history, the Academy has not only failed to recognize the talent of many actors and actresses of color but awarded whitewashed roles in the industry.

Hollywood has consistently given diverse roles to white actors over the years; in fact, quite recently Tilda Swinton was cast as a Tibetan monk in 2016’s “Doctor Strange.” And the Oscars haven’t helped alleviate this long-standing issue by rewarding this kind of whitewashing. 

Several notable white actors have been nominated for an Oscar for portraying people of color through the years. Many of them have actually won. 

Take a look at 11 times the academy has nominated actors for blackface, brownface and yellowface. 

Jennifer Connelly, “A Beautiful Mind”

Jennifer Connelly portrayed Alicia, the wife of mathematician John Nash in 2001’s “A Beautiful Mind.” In real-life, Alicia Nash (born Alicia Lardé) was Salvadorian. The actress, who has no Latin American roots, won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for the role.

William Hurt, “Kiss of the Spider Woman”

In “Kiss of the Spider Woman,” William Hurt plays Luis Molina, a queer South American prisoner. The film was adapted from Argentine author Manuel Puig’s novel of the same name. Hurt, a white man who doesn’t identify as LGBTQ or Latino, won an Oscar for Best Actor for the role in 1985. 

Linda Hunt, “The Year of Living Dangerously”

Actress Linda Hunt won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in 1983 for portraying Billy Kwan in “The Year of Living Dangerously.” In the film, Kwan is a Chinese-Australian male photographer with dwarfism working in Jakarta, Indonesia.

 Laurence Olivier, “Othello”

Shakespeare’s “Othello” is a Christian Moor, who is often portrayed as having a dark-complexion. Legendary British actor Laurence Olivier wore blackface when he portrayed Othello in the 1965 film version. The actor was nominated by The Academy in the Best Actor category for the role. 

George Chakiris, “West Side Story”

Greek-American actor George Chakiris portrayed Bernardo, leader of the Puerto Rican gang The Sharks in “West Side Story.” He, as well as other white actors portraying Latino characters in the film, darkened their complexion with make-up. Chakiris won an Oscar in the Best Supporting Actor category for the role. 

Hugh Griffith, “Ben-Hur”

Hugh Griffith portrayed Sheik Ilderim, an Arab character who owns the horses Judah ends up using in his chariot race, in 1959’s “Ben-Hur.” The British actor won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for this role. 

Spencer Tracy, “The Old Man and the Sea”

Fans of Ernest Hemingway’s novel The Old Man and the Sea might recall the book’s titular character is a Cuban fisherman. But in the 1958 film adaptation of the novel, Spencer Tracy was given the titular role. The actor, who is not Latino, was nominated for an Oscar in the Best Actor category for his role. 

Yul Brynner, “The King and I”

Yul Brynner, who is mainly of Russian descent, starred as the King of Siam (present-day Thailand) in the 1956 musical “The King and I.” The actor won an Oscar in the Best Actor category for the role. 

Marlon Brando, “Viva Zapata!”

Hollywood brought the story of Mexican revolutionary Emiliano Zapata to life in the 1952 film “Viva Zapata!” The titular role went to Marlon Brando, who is not Latino. The actor was nominated for an Oscar in the Best Actor category for the role. 

Luise Rainer, “The Good Earth” 

“The Good Earth” is a 1937 film based on the historical novel of the same name, its story focuses on a family of Chinese farmers. Actress Luise Rainer wore yellowface to portray O-Lan, one of the film’s protagonists, and she took home an Oscar for Best Actress for the role. 

Gale Sondergaard, “Anna and the King of Siam”

Gale Sondergaard portrayed Lady Thiang, the king’s head wife, in “Anna and the King of Siam.” The actress, who is not of Asian descent, was nominated for the role in the The Academy’s Best Supporting Actress category.

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Accused of Playing “Identity Politics”

2016-12-22-1482427029-1594860-RudolphFinal.jpg

‘Shouts of glee’ have devolved into ‘rants of resentment.’ Despite evidence to the contrary, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer stands accused of playing ‘identity politics.’ His position as sleigh guide is in jeopardy this Christmas.

In the past, the flying reindeer have denied unconventionally-nosed reindeer equal opportunities. Rudolph’s efforts changed that. Now, flying reindeer, elves, and all other personnel at Santa’s workshop represent a broader base that reflects the North Pole’s population.

This hasn’t sat well with the old reindeer guard.

Prancer has been the most vociferous. “Rudolph is always yammering, ‘red-nose-this-and-red-nose-that,’ ‘rights for Abominable Snow Monsters,’ ‘save the misfit toys.’ Blah blah blah. We are sick of his nutcracking. Santa’s sleigh is our birthright. Why should he get special attention?”

The irony of this narrative is not lost on Rudolph. “I am caught in headlights. I just don’t get it. They used to laugh. They use to call me names. They wouldn’t let me join in any reindeer games. Yet that foggy Christmas Eve instead of holding a grudge I took the reins, lit the way, and saved Christmas. Instead of gratitude, they act like I ran over someone’s grandma.”

“All I’ve ever wanted was to be included, to contribute, and for toys to get delivered to every girl and boy,” he continued. “Now I’m being ousted. This is not at all how I wanted to go down in history.”

David Duchovny Discusses The Difficulty Of Playing A Violent Cop On ‘Aquarius’

In “Aquarius,” David Duchovny plays a cop who isn’t afraid to use violence to get the job done — a tricky line to walk in a time when police brutality has become such a controversial topic. In the video above, Duchovny chats with “The HuffPost Show” host Roy Sekoff about playing a character with a moral code that is “personalized” rather than “dogmatized.”

Viola Davis On Finally Playing A ‘Sexualized’ Woman

It takes guts for a Hollywood actress to portray an imperfect woman. Or as Viola Davis calls it, to “woman up.”

During The Hollywood Reporter’s Emmy Nominee Actress roundtable, Davis opened up about her lead role on “How to Get Away with Murder” — and the anxiety and self-doubt that came along with getting it. The roundtable also included fellow small-screen powerhouses Jessica Lange, Lizzy Caplan, Viola Davis, Ruth Wilson, Taraji P. Henson and Maggie Gyllenhaal.

Davis discussed what it was like to be cast as criminal defense attorney and professor Annalise Keating. “There was absolutely no precedent for [the role],” Davis said. “I had never seen a 49-year-old, dark-skinned woman who is not a size 2 be a sexualized role in TV or film. I’m a sexual woman, but nothing in my career has ever identified me as a sexualized woman. I was the prototype of the ‘mommified’ role.”

When she accepted the part, Davis said she felt terrified — and then empowered.

Fear would be an understatement. When I saw myself for the first time in the pilot episode, I was mortified. I saw the fake eyelashes and, “Are you kidding me? Who is going to believe this?” And then my big “aha” moment was: “This is your moment to not typecast yourself, to actually play a woman who is sexualized and do your investigative work as an actor to find out who this woman is, and woman up and put a real woman on TV who’s smack-dab in the midst of this pop fiction.”

Davis also touched on the pressure women in Hollywood feel to play characters that are “likable.”

“The thing I had to get used to with TV was the likability factor,” Davis said. “People have to like you, people have to think you’re pretty. I was going to have to face a fact that people were going to look at me and say: ‘I have no idea why they cast her in a role like this. She just doesn’t fit. It should have been someone like Halle Berry. It’s her voice, and she doesn’t walk like a supermodel in those heels.’ And people do say that, they do.”

But Davis has been able to tune out the naysayers by challenging herself to place the real world before Hollywood. “The women in my life who are sexualized are anywhere from a size zero to a size 24. They don’t walk like supermodels in heels. They take their wig and makeup off at night,” Davis said. “So this role was my way of saying, ‘Welcome to womanhood!'”

Head over to The Hollywood Reporter to read the full roundtable discussion.

Playing for Love: 2 Truths

Although our generation is no stranger to the idea that our reliance and commitment to technology is hindering the quality of meaningful relationships — not just in maintaining them, but in establishing them to begin with — we still seem to be a little hesitant and guarded about finding love online. If you have ever been on Tinder or similar dating apps, you would be hard pressed to not come across at least one person who makes a joke in their profile along the lines of, “I’ll lie about where we met.”

2015-06-02-1433255124-4773828-newonlinedatingapp.jpg

Some people are embarrassed to be on them, or stubborn about their ineffectiveness. And their reasoning is understandable. It’s is a lot easier to act like you don’t care about finding someone, right? To act like you are such a catch that you’d have no trouble meeting someone the “traditional” way. That, and the fact that online dating apps can feel impersonal and superficial. You scan people’s profiles, judge them on what they look like, and make snap decisions.

Then there also is the problem of establishing a connection. Online dating apps have the same nature as others apps, like Instagram: they are essentially a numbers game. Your Instagram worth is essentially based on how many “likes” you get. Running parallel to this is the idea that online dating apps are only effective if you are matched with as many people as possible — validating your worth.

Winning Their Heart

When it comes to dating apps, there are different kinds of games people find themselves playing: the ones where getting to know one another is playful and fun, and the other kind, the numbers game, where acquiring matches has no further purpose or intent. If you are looking to establish meaningful connections, you need the former. It’s not that online dating apps don’t work — just that they need to be used the right way.

And if there is anyone who knows how to incorporate the fun, informality of a game into establishing a meaningful connection, it’s Tyler Adams — this season’s winner of The Amazing Race. For people who haven’t already heard about it, the reality show mixed things up this season by having half the contestants meet for the first time on a blind date — Adams being one of these pairs. And although he and his partner, Laura, didn’t’ find romantic love, they did establish a bond strong enough to rely on one another for 21 days, ultimately winning the entire race.

Ironically enough — or in a way that kind of makes perfect sense — Adams also happens to be the co-founder of the new “dating” app 2 Truths, a modern spin on the age-old icebreaker game, “Two truths and a lie.”

You can’t force love, chemistry or even a connection. Those have to happen organically. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways to help it along — which is exactly what the new app 2 Truths does. It fixes one of the biggest disconnects between hating and loving online dating: getting matched then never actually building a connection. Because you can only be matched with someone after you learn a little bit about them, taking the impersonal atmosphere off the table, and you do so in a fun, game-like manner, it doesn’t feel forced, overly-formal or shallow.

“It’s incredible how much you can learn about someone’s personality from 3 short statements,’ said Adams. “Especially when one of them is a lie. It’s the first dating app with a sense of humor.”

There is no shame, especially for our generation, in finding people online that have similar interests, someone you would be interested in getting to know more. But you can’t expect the intimacy and spark between two people to just happen because there’s a match. You can’t expect to determine whether or not you “click” with someone through a screen. That is something that can only be done through conversation and, eventually, in person.

I like comedian and actor Aziz Ansari’s approach to online dating: “Don’t think online dating as dating — it’s an introduction service.” Essentially, that is what it is. You aren’t dating this person online. Online dating apps hand pick and deliver people you might hit it off with. They let you realize these people exist, and give you a platform to introduce yourself on. But beyond that, it’s up to you.

Not only is the 2 Truths app backed by the impressive credentials brought to the table by Adams alone, but it was also developed by the same team who won the Startup weekend in Los Angeles in 2014–which is, modestly, the largest competition for startup ventures in the world. Although still relatively new, considering who the app has been developed and started by, it seems to have a whole lot of potential.

Cop Spotted Playing Football With Kids: ‘We Need To Earn Back Respect From The Community’

For this cop, serving the community means making a meaningful connection with its residents.

C.J. Mullinax, a police officer in Bennettsville, South Carolina, decided to take some time out to throw around a pigskin with kids in a housing development area, according to ABC15. The delightful interaction was caught on camera by Lorenzo Adams, who was driving by at the time, and shared the video on Facebook, this past Tuesday.

The post quickly went viral, with almost 170,000 shares as of Friday afternoon. And while the clip has captured hearts across the Internet, the officer maintains that engaging with kids is just part of his job.

“That’s how you gain the community’s trust,” Mullinax explained to ABC News. “Not all cops are bad, but because of what some bad cops have done, we need to earn back respect from the community.”

The policeman told ABC15 that he was on patrol when he saw the kids waving to him, and ended up being the quarterback in a game of football. Though law enforcement may not be closely associated with fun and games, Bennettsville Police Department Police Chief Larry McNeil said he encourages interactions like this.

“I believe you can do so much more chasing a kid while holding a basketball or football than chasing a kid while holding a baton or gun,” McNeil told ABC News. “I always tell my guys they can do more with what’s between their ears — their brain — than the holster on their side.”

Mullinax took to Facebook to express his thanks for the outpouring of support he’s received.

“I’ve always wanted to make a difference,” he wrote on the social networking site. “That was my priority in this career decision. I’m so blessed to be touching so many people by just playing football with some kids.”

“Playing It Cool” Has Two Leads With Chemistry

Movie Review – Jackie K Cooper
“Playing It Cool” (Voltage Pictures)

Sometimes you get a movie with a silly premise, and all the information about the movie makes it look like a dud. Then you see the movie and the chemistry between the two leads is so good it almost makes the movie worthwhile. Note I said almost.

“Playing It Cool” is about a screenwriter (Chris Evans) who is tasked with writing a romantic comedy. He has a difficult time fulfilling the assignment as he has never been in love and doesn’t really think love exists. That is until he meets an immensely likeable woman (Michelle Monaghan) at a party and is immediately smitten. Sparks fly between them as they first touch hands.

Problem is she has a boyfriend (Ioan Gruffudd), and wants to stay true to him. However our hero talks her into going out on a “friend” date. And then another one. His friends (Luke Wilson, Aubrey Plaza, Martin Starr and Topher Grace) try to warn him away from this woman but he persists until she tells him they have to stop.

The story goes on from there and even if it is predictable I am not going to reveal all here. It is enough to say he imagines a variety of scenarios wherein they might be reunited and the audience gets to see them all. They aren’t very imaginative but it does break up the monotony of the film.

Chris Evans has a strong fan base because of his “Captain America” role and they doubtlessly will watch this movie just because he is in it. Still it has to be said this is not one of his strongest performances. Monaghan has been in quite a few movies and has never made a real impact on Hollywood. In this film she is adequately charming but nothing to write home about. Still when these two are on screen together they do have chemistry and you do root for them as a couple to make it.

The supporting cast is competent but they do not have strongly written roles. Topher Grace’s is the most detailed but the audience never feels they know him. Plaza gets the most attention of this group but a little of her personality in this movie goes a long way.

The movie is rated R for profanity and adult situations.

Apart Evans and Monaghan are mildly entertaining but when they are together it is movie magic one more time. Their chemistry makes the movie better than it has any right to be.

I scored “Playing It Cool” a chilly 4 out of 10.

Dog Found Guilty Of Playing In Garbage Adorably Sentences Herself To A Kennel Timeout

Autumn, the pup in the video above, finds herself in trouble and realizes she has two options:

A. Avoid confrontation and run away from the authorities (her human).
B. Turn herself in. The jig is up.

Autumn decides to do both. In this video uploaded to YouTube, the pooch’s owner calls out to her pet after discovering that Autumn has had some fun in the garbage pile.

The guilty dog starts out running away from her problems, but soon realizes her efforts are futile. She’s been spotted.

So, at the 0:46 mark, she trots on into her kennel. Gotta do the time.

Playing the Married Name Game

2014-11-07-501243119.jpg

After saying “I do” there’s a whirlwind of well wishes, honeymoon travel and settling into newlywed life. Typically as soon as the wedding ring is on her finger, a bride is inundated with questions about changing her name from everyone including well meaning relatives (ahem Mother-in-Laws), TSA, friends, and colleagues. You may be thinking “Why all the name change drama in 2014?” The truth of the matter is that name change has been and still is a highly charged topic.

Amal Alamuddin made major waves after she changed her name to Amal Clooney last month. Many feminists were outraged that a high profile international lawyer would take her spouse’s last name, while other women applauded what they saw as a romantic gesture. Regardless of what side they were on, the general public had an opinion on what should be a newlywed woman’s private decision on her name change.

Similarly, Michelle Nunn is facing controversy around keeping her maiden name after marriage. As a Democratic Senate candidate her competitors were voicing concerns that she kept her maiden name to cash in on the political goodwill associated with her father. There’s also speculation that Hillary didn’t take Clinton as a last name until her lack of name change was implicated as part of the reason Bill Clinton was not re-elected as Governor back in 1980.

With all of these high profile women dealing with name change turmoil, what is a newlywed to do? Follow this five steps to ensure that playing the married name game results in your perfect name:

  1. Know Your Options Today’s brides can opt to hyphenate their maiden name with their spouse’s, take two last names sans hyphen, take their maiden name as a middle name, take their spouse’s last name or keep their maiden name post marriage. The multitude of choices allow women to find the options that best suits them and their lifestyle.
  2. Understand State Laws The state you live in dictates what name change options are available to you, so it is important to research your state’s laws. For example, brides living in CA, WA, NJ and OH cannot take their maiden names as a middle name and brides living in NY and PA have to file their government forms in a specific sequence in order to do so.
  3. Consult Your Spouse Knowing your spouse’s thoughts on name change is a must. They may be adamant that you take their family name or they might offer to take yours. Starting newlywed life with open communication and compromise is the key to a happy marriage.
  4. Consider the Future Do you plan to have children and/or build a business off of your current name or career? Is it important that you have the same name as your family or to be recognized under your maiden name? Thinking about future plans can lend clarity to your name change choice and prevent years of regret.
  5. Be True to You At the end of the day, your name change is your choice. While it is wise to consider the various aspects of your life and relationship that may influence that choice, you need to make the decision that you feel most comfortable with. Remember you’re the person who will use that name for the rest of your life!

Playing Along to Stay Alive: Surviving Molestation

This story was written and performed by Darrin Larson for the live, personal storytelling series Oral Fixation (An Obsession With True Life Tales) at The Winspear Opera House in Dallas, on March 17, 2014.

The theme of the show was “Elephant in the Room.”

Trigger warning

“Darrin boldly describes the fateful New Year’s Eve when, at age 14, he is forced to deter a molester and then struggles to deal with the shame that follows,” says Oral Fixation creator and director Nicole Stewart. “What a brave move it was for him to stand on stage and recall that terrible night and then share how it shaped his life and informs his parenting. Read his story here and don’t miss his performance in the video below.”

An hour after ringing in the new year with my first full can of beer, I no longer feel the pleasant numbness that crept over my 14-year-old body and made me laugh and talk too much. There’s now a big, walrus-bearded man lying in bed next to me, his stale breath sailing into my face as his fingers circle uninvited beneath my T-shirt. His hand has found an area unprotected by clothing, bones, hair, or solid muscle, and he traces rings that radiate outward from my belly button like a target.

“This will help your stomach,” Sid whispers.

It’s a softer voice than the one that booms over the counter when he’s selling burgers and cokes to us at the lodge near our weekend cabin, where he jokes with the crowd of kids in wet bathing suits while the moms read books on lawn chairs down by the lake.

Earlier in the night, when we were sitting around his family room drinking beer, I told him I didn’t want to get sick. My older brother spent the night hunched over a toilet the first time he got drunk, and as my own buzz was kicking in, I suddenly worried that I would lose it also.

But my stomach is fine. I stopped after one beer — apparently I’m a lightweight — and I wasn’t worried about throwing up by the time I walked into the bedroom to go to sleep.

When he got he got into the bed with me, I thought it was a joke, like he was pretending to not know that he was in the wrong room, but then he inched in next to me, placed his hand on top of my T-shirt, and started rubbing my stomach.

His fingers began tentatively, with small side-to-side motions that barely went up or down. My heart began to pound, but I remained motionless, as if my stillness could stop him from doing whatever a grown man does when he crawls into bed with a 14-year-old boy. Then his arm slid under my T-shirt, and I felt cold air on my skin as he placed his hand directly on my belly.

Oh God, no.

We’re in his son’s room — Nick, a guy I barely know. He’s a year or two older than me, smells like cigarettes, and looks half-wasted a lot of the time. He invited my older brother over for New Year’s Eve, and I tagged along when I found out there would be beer. We’ve known Sid for a while, and we like him because he’s always saying funny, sarcastic things out of earshot of our parents. We only met Nick a few months ago, when Sid adopted him.

“Man, you’re so lucky,” I told Nick when we got to his cabin. “Your dad is cool with you drinking.” He nodded and gave a short laugh. I hadn’t said anything about the beer to my parents. “We’re going to watch TV and hang out,” I told them. Unlike Nick, I normally played by the rules.

Now Nick is passed out in a bed on the other side of the room. My older brother is in the same condition in the other bedroom, and my parents are miles away, beyond the snow, trees, and darkness surrounding this cabin. That’s where I should be, in my own bedroom, on the top bunk with my younger brother snoring below and our dogs sleeping on the floor by the heater.

It’s quiet except for Sid’s heavy breathing and the things he says in a hushed voice to make me think this is normal. His hairy, beer-bellied wall of a body stretches from the foot of the bed to headboard. He’s at least a half a foot taller than me and three times as heavy, and though I could outrun him on the track or soccer field, I feel trapped and powerless here.

I can’t push his hand away or tell him to stop rubbing me — that would make him mad. I hide my repulsion, my fear, my knowledge that what he’s doing is wrong. See, no problem — I won’t tell anyone. You won’t have to kill me.

“Does it feel better?”

“Yeah,” I say, hoping it will make him take his hand off me and get the hell out of the bed.

His hand keeps moving, though, and my boxers, which I wear around my house at night like pajamas because they cover up what is private, now feel so thin and unprotective.

Maybe he’s not trying to do anything.

No, he’s going lower. Oh God, please make him stop.

His hand finally brushes against the top of my underwear, and I feel the waistband give. A bolt of panic shoots through me and words spill out of my mouth before I can stop them.

“I’m fine. My stomach is fine.” I try to say it gratefully, sleepily, in a way that won’t provoke him.

I roll over on my side toward the wall, and my abrupt shift causes his hand to fall back. I brace myself for him to follow, to ignore my words, but he doesn’t. He sinks back into his side of the bed and after a few minutes of shifting and settling, he becomes still.

I’m not going to fall asleep. I can’t or else his hand will be on my body again, tugging at the elastic boundary that separates inappropriate from criminal. He seems like he’s asleep, but I won’t look and risk stirring him.

After a while, he begins to snore, and my heart descends back into my chest and slows to a resting rabbit pace.

I drift in and out of sleep waiting for morning to come — and for my brother and Nick to wake up so I’m not all alone with him. Staring into the darkness all around me, I’m hounded by the thought that I wouldn’t be here if I hadn’t wanted so badly to see what it felt like to get drunk. I try to pray, but it doesn’t work the way it did when I used to ask the small framed picture of Jesus I made in Sunday school to please keep me from getting leukemia like that kid at school. I seem too old for that God, and he seems far away.

By the time the morning light pierces the room’s darkness and secrecy, my muscles are drained from hours of trying to stay alert. I hear my brother get up to go to the bathroom, and when he’s done, Nick follows. I quietly slide to the foot of the bed, careful not to wake up Sid, climb out, and go to the hallway to wait for my turn.

I will not go back in the bedroom or any place alone with that man ever again.

Sid takes us back to our cabin and I pretend like nothing happened as we say goodbye. When my parents ask how things went, I say nothing about the fingers tugging at my boxers. Or the beer. They all go together at this point — things that shouldn’t have happened — and I’m keeping them all a secret.

A couple of days later, we leave our cabin and make the four-hour drive home, farther and farther from Sid. School starts and life gets back on a schedule, and I eventually start to feel like my old self. But underneath it all, in the place where my voice lives, I’ve changed. I don’t trust grown-ups the way I used to, and I’ve lost some of my sense that bad things won’t happen to me.

Several years passed before I told my parents about that night. And when I did, I didn’t even call it what it was. He didn’t cross the line and touch me there, so I said, “I was almost molested.” My mom sounded so devastated that I just left it at that.

But he did cross the line. I was too old to have someone rubbing my tummy to make me feel better and too young to consent to what he wanted to do that night.

For the longest time, I felt weak for not telling him to stop. I didn’t understand why I just lay there. But as I went back to that night in my mind, on the page, and in a therapist’s office, I came to see that what I was doing was trying to survive. I didn’t want to be one of those kids they find buried somewhere after they’ve been molested. If I acted like there was no problem, there should be no reason to kill me.

That night and for years afterward, what he did to me somehow became something I was ashamed of. But it was his actions that were repulsive, not mine. There was nothing for me to feel guilt or shame about.

I don’t know what became of Sid, but I know what became of me. I worked hard at shedding my innocent, good-kid skin — it protects you only when you live in the shadow of mom and dad, not when you have to hold your own with other kids or men who want try to crawl into bed with you. Beer, pot, and anything I could pour into a Coke seemed to be the ticket out of childhood for a while, but eventually I didn’t need them to feel like I was living life on my own terms, standing on my own.

And standing on my own has put me in the position to stand up for others, whether it’s in my career as a public servant, the classes I teach on resolving conflict, the causes I support that combat child and animal abuse, or the stories I tell in front of a microphone.

When I became a father, I made sure my daughter would know how to stand up for herself — and how to listen to the voice inside her that will protect her.

“I didn’t tell anyone about what happened to me, and I should have,” I told her. “If anyone ever tries to do anything to you, tell them they can’t. Tell them no. And don’t be afraid to tell me. I’ll believe you.”

Because of what happened to me that night, I understand why people who’ve been molested are sometimes afraid to speak up. And that’s why I tell this story — for me and for them.

Jimmy Fallon Playing The Vanilla Ice Board Game Makes You Stop, Collaborate And Listen

Ice is back with an embarrassing invention.

In Jimmy Fallon’s first installment of his “Do Not Game List,” the “Tonight Show” host introduced us to a bunch of different awful games, but Vanilla Ice Electronic Rap might be the most terribly awesome of them all.

In the game, players are given an electronic beat box and rap different rhyming words that don’t make a lot of sense.

Fallon doesn’t really explain how to win the game, but this might just be one of those cases where there aren’t any winners.

Thoughts on “Dim for Joan,” Playing House and Alli Mauzey

A big thing employers want to see on resumes is additional languages spoken. The only language I speak other than English is broken Yiddish. That’s obviously not on my resume, because who would care about that?! Except one person did, one night.

I met Joan Rivers once in my career. It was the mid-aughts. There was a rumor that she had written a new play that she wanted to bring to Broadway. I needed the scoop! I went to see her stand-up act and had press agent Ron Lasko introduce us. She was fine to me, nice even, but not focused. There were other people there and she was trying to talk to everyone at once, making my news investigation difficult. Then I said some Yiddish phrase — I don’t think to her directly, but she heard it. Upon that, she immediately perked up and zeroed in. She became the person we’ve all read about in the last week. I will forever remember it.

I never spoke to her after that and the play never came in. But I saw her frequently outside theaters. Countless actors told me how nice she was to them. While she was best known for stand-up and her comedic television gigs, she wanted to be an actress. She co-wrote a Broadway play in 1972 that she made her Broadway debut in. She later returned to the Great White Way in Broadway Bound, replacing Linda Lavin. Then, in 1994, she wrote and starred in Sally Marr… and her escorts. She received a Tony nomination for her performance. She was part of the community I live and work in.

So I understand the anger people have at the Broadway League for deciding not to dim the lights in her honor. I also understand the Broadway League not wanting to dim for every person who has ever received a Tony nomination. (I’m not sure when saving on electric bills became an honor worthy of a fight, but, got it, they want to make it special when it does happen.) However they just dimmed the lights for Robin Williams, who only appeared on Broadway twice, once with a stand-up act. Just like Rivers, he was not best known for his work in the theater. Unlike Rivers, he never received a Tony nomination and he was not known as a huge supporter of the community. So what makes him more worthy? That his last Broadway stage appearance was more recent? It doesn’t make sense. If the League wants to set standards that a person must meet before receiving the honor of the dimming of the lights, okay. Those standards can be set, but they haven’t been. Right now it’s just a group of people saying Rivers isn’t Broadway enough. Well, I’m part of the theater community, and I think she is. League member Jordan Roth is part of the community, and he thinks she is. The theaters he owns, Jujamcyn’s five Broadway houses, will dim their lights. And countless other members of the community, members of the Broadway League, think this decision is ridiculous. So why? Why make this stance against the public outcry? Why shun someone who so supported the theater? As Michael Riedel wrote in his touching tribute, she was even a theater critic. We all love our critics. Rivers should be recognized as the Broadway champion, and Tony-nominated fixture, she was.

As long as I’m talking about funny ladies and things I don’t understand, I’m going to again write about Playing House. Still no word from USA Network on renewal. I’m sure the network heads have seen all the Twitter comments and articles urging renewal, but they are apparently still debating. I can see some network executive is studying the numbers, commenting mentally about how they are worse than Sirens‘ numbers. I want to say again — Playing House is a show that USA did not promote well. You want a show that USA promoted really well? Satisfaction. Every time I have on USA, I see something about Satisfaction being sexy and addictive. It’s a very good campaign, especially for housewives. I wish USA had spent that much time promoting Playing House, even if they tried to promote that too as Fifty Shades of Grey. At least then people would have turned it on. This isn’t a show that had a huge debut and fell off because it was, um, Black Box. This is a show that needs time to grow by word-of-mouth. It hasn’t had all the time it needed. It needs a second season.

One other funny woman I want to talk about is Alli Mauzey. Years ago I left the Cry-Baby workshop saying the following: “The leads aren’t great. Hanke is good. Alli Mauzey is amazing. She is going to get a Tony nomination.” Well, I wasn’t wrong about Mauzey being wonderful onstage at the Marquis Theater, but, alas, the show was slammed and she was forgotten. She has gone on to be Glinda in Wicked (a pretty good gig) and I was also thrilled to see her in the Encores! staging of It’s a Bird… It’s a Plane… It’s Superman, singing “You’ve Got Possibilities.” Now she is in the off-Broadway musical Red Eye of Love. I’m not going to comment on the show itself, but I will say, in it, Mauzey again proves herself to be a genius musical theater comedy actress. I wish her all the success in the world. Hopefully she’ll be originating another role on Broadway at some point. If she does, please go catch her.

Broadway League, as a final note, I ask you to listen to the majority of people who support the theater. They are telling you to dim for Joan. Don’t make this a ganze megillah. Admit you were wrong and have the other theater owners join Jujamcyn in dimming their lights tomorrow night.

Follow me on Twitter @CaraJoyDavid and read my other work. Some of it is good.

Playing to Learn

Playing to Learn


‘Playing to Learn’ exemplifies what babies’ and young children’s play and learning is like in the first three years. A DVD, case studies and examples support parents and practitioners, working in a wide range of settings, to learn more about the conditions and contexts for play and learning. Developed as the result of a project undertaken in five early years centres in the UK, focusing on high quality experiences for children from birth to three, the resource materials are highly relevant for training and professional development, addressing significant issues relating to childcare practice. The underlying message is that when children play they also learn, and the authors explore this in further detail by examining the following questions: How can we gain a better understanding of young children’s learning and development? How are play and learning connected for young children? What kinds of provision and interactions do babies and young children need? The DVD and accompanying book are organised in such a way that it can be studied by individuals or groups led by a trainer.The sequences involved reflect everyday experiences and interactions between children and their parents or practitioners, and additional support is provided by the inclusion of selected readings, questions and challenges for consideration. The importance of observing children in order to identify and respond to their interests is emphasised throughout. ‘Playing to Learn’ is an essential resource for practitioners working with babies and toddlers in out-of-home settings; and is useful and informative for parents of young children.
