Yesterday Valentalae told me about this utterly amazing documentary.
It's called "Best and Most Beautiful Things."
It's about a legally blind, autistic girl named Michelle Smith. As it happens, she's an age player. As it also happens, she listens to the podcast.
If you're listening carefully, you can hear her talk about and quote something Valentalae often says, about non-consensual ageplay. And then later on, she quotes something I often say, too.
You go watch the whole thing, and see if you can catch where. I won't spoil it for you.
This documentary is utterly brilliant. It shows the very real life of a very real person. She's not some sort of plucky-yet-disabled low budget superhero (thanks Vee, for giving me that verbiage). She loses her stuff. And sometimes, she loses her shit.
She's blessedly, wonderfully, perfectly imperfect. Just like everyone.
That's kind of the point of the whole documentary. I'm glad it exists, and that she does. She's an awesome person.
If you want to watch it, it's on Netflix, PBS has it to show for a while, and I know it's coming to iTunes, if it hasn't already.
