This duck has no sense of self. Actually, I doubt that’s true. I view this duck as the most normative, and I have a hard time relating to people who are super normative. This is the kind of duck that’s all excited to get her pumpkin spice latte and doesn’t need feminism because she really likes married life and the PTA and is totally missing the concept of not only feminism but really everything. I think it’s that the rainbow dots are applied so minimalistically that they can be viewed as ‘whimsy’ without going over the top. But if you’re over the top, just go over the top. Don’t spend a lot of time worrying about whether or not it’s ‘too much’ if it makes you happy. But no one told this duck.
And then I think that my feelings about this duck are over the top and should be scaled down and I have to go through the internal debate of what do I stand for and what am I doing, and it’s just easier to avert my eyes and look at my other ducks.
