When it doesn't matter what you do...

Posted on February 13, 2014 at 2:54 PM


I got quite a lovely surprise watching The Daily Show last night.

Some of you have seen the brand new contact cards I had made for Goddess Prom.  Flip it over and on the back you'll see one of my very favorite quotes.  It's taken from one of the tv shows of my all-time favorite writer/producer/director, Joss Whedon:

"If it doesn't matter what you do, then all that matters is what you do."


It's a powerful statement.  Makes you think hard and ponder what it really means.


Last night I was stunned to discover just how far these words have reached.  In a Daily Show segment (set in or near Sochi), Jason Jones is speaking to a Russian grandmother about why she is the sole supporter of human rights at a very hostile public demonstration:

After you get past the 30-second ad, the part that made me break down in tears is at about 5:30...

I'm aware the issue of human rights in Russia has nothing to do with Planned Parenthood or The Goddess Prom, and I don't write this post with any intention other than to share with you an amazing moment.  I was so thrilled to hear someone on the other side of the planet speaking the very words I had recently chosen to share with all my Goddesses.  (And as a big nerd when it comes to Joss Whedon, I was thrilled to find fans in Russia.)   ;-)


The issue of reproductive equality/justice/health care in Texas seems huge.  The problems are many, and seem so large that we feel powerless to do anything about it.  (What can *I* possibly do that would really change anything??)


If it doesn't matter what you do, then all that matters is what you *do*.


With thanks for ALL you do,

-Rebecca

I loved that segment of the show the other night, it was amazing. They always do a good job of making fun of stupid people in a way that they don't know they're being made fun of. I've been a fan of the show Angel for a long time so I was really surprised to hear that lady use that quote. I didn't know you were using it for your cards, that's cool!
