What Emily in Paris Gets Wrong About French Culture, According to Parisians
We asked Parisians about the new Netflix series' "cliché" depiction of life in the City of Light Netflix’s new 10-episode series has sparked debates online over the postcard vision that it depicts of Paris and its people, which is notably more flattering of the city than of its inhabitants. While the series has been largely well received by American audiences for its romantic escapism, French critics have accused it of relying on outdated stereotypes of French culture, and of depicting an unrealistic version of their capital.
"But I don't likeonto people, let alone babies," Ratajkowski explains. "I want to be a parent who allows my child to show themself to me. And yet I realize that while I may hope my child can determine their own place in the world, they will, no matter what, be faced with the undeniable constraints and constructions of gender before they can speak or, hell, even be born."
The mom-to-be says she "used to call myself superstitious, but now I understand it another way. The idea that I could 'jinx' something or the belief that I could project my thoughts in a particular way to bring about a certain result is actually called 'magical thinking,' a coping mechanism one develops to make oneself feel more in control."
"I used to use magical thinking whenever I wanted something to go a certain way. Now, though, I don’t try to," Ratajkowski adds. "I'm too humbled to have any false notions of control. I'm completely and undeniably helpless when it comes to almost everything surrounding my pregnancy: how my body will change, who my child will be."
