青少年探索进行时

A teen just trying to figure it out - Tavi Gevinson

四年前的今天 恰巧是同一天 我创办了一个时尚博客
Four years ago today exactly actually I started a fashion blog
叫做“菜鸟风尚”
called Style Rookie.
2011年9月
Last September of 2011,
我为青少年女生 创办了一本在线杂志Rookiemag.com
I started an online magazine for teenage girls called Rookiemag.com.
我叫泰薇·盖文森
My name is Tavi Gevinson and
我今天演讲的题目是“探索进行时”
the title of my talk is “Still Figuring It Out.”
我用微软画图板画的这些幻灯片 完全是为了配合今天的主题
and the MS Paint quality of my slides was a total creative decision
进行的创新之举
and keeping with today’s theme
这和我使用PowerPoint的水平没有半点关系
and has nothing to do with my inability to use PowerPoint.
这个网站是为青少年女生做的
So I edit the site for teenage girls.
我是个女权主义者
I’m a feminist.
我是个流行文化迷
I am kind of a pop-culture nerd
我对如何成为更强大的女性有相当多的研究
and I think a lot about what makes a strong female character
你知道的 那些电影 电视节目
and you know movies and TV shows
对我的网页创作都产生了一定影响
these things have influenced my own website.
所以我认为强大女性的定义
So I think the question of what makes a strong female character
通常被人们误解了
often goes misinterpreted.
取而代之的是 平面的女超人
And instead we got these two-dimensional super women,
要么可能鼓吹她某一特质
who maybe have one quality that’s played up a lot
比如猫女之类的
like you know a Catwoman type,
要么就是夸大她的性吸引力
or she like plays her sexuality up a lot
这还被视为一种能力
and it’s seen as power.
但这些都不是女强人的形象
But they’re not strong characters who happen to be female,
这些形象都过于平面
they’re completely flat
充其量都是纸片人
and they’re basically cardboard characters.
那么问题紧接而来
The problem with this is that then
人们希望女人简单易懂
people expect women to be that easy to understand
而女人对此感到很生气 因为她们觉得自己并不简单
and women are mad at themselves for not being that simple
实际上 女人是复杂的
when in actuality women are complicated,
是很多面的
women are multifaceted
这并不是因为女人很疯狂
not because women are crazy,
而是因为人就很疯狂
but because people are crazy
而正好女人也是人
and women happen to be people.
所以这些缺陷也是关键
So the flaws are the key.
我并不是第一个说过这话的人
I’m not the first person to say this
女强人也有弱点
what makes a strong female character is a character, who has weaknesses
也有缺点
who has flaws,
或许你一开始可能不喜欢她
who is maybe not immediately likable,
但是最终你会欣赏她
but eventually relatable.
我喜欢在认识一些问题的同时
I don’t like to acknowledge a problem
也去了解那些努力解决问题的人
without also acknowledging those who work to fix it.
所以我喜欢看“广告狂人”和“伴娘”这类电影
so just wanted to acknowledge shows like “Mad Men,” movies like “Bridesmaids,”
这些女性角色或者主人公是复杂的 多面的
whose female characters or protagonists are complex multifaceted.
屏幕上写的是莉娜·杜汉姆
Lena Dunham, who’s on here,
她在HBO的新作“都市女孩”将在下个月上映
her show on HBO that premiers next month, “Girls,”
她说之所以想拍这部作品
she said she wanted to start it,
是因为她觉得她认识的所有女性
because she felt that every woman she knew
都是非常矛盾的 而这也正是所有人的想法
was just a bundle of contradictions and and that feels accurate for all people.
但是女人的这一特点并没有被充分表现出来
But you don’t see women represented like that as much.
祝贺你们了
Congrats guys.
但我不这么感觉 我仍旧认为
But I don’t feel that I still feel that
有一些女人的类型是未曾展现的
there are some types of women who are not represented that way
今天我们要关注的一类就是青少年
and one group that we’ll focus on today are teens,
因为我认为青少年是尤其矛盾的
because I think teenagers are especially contradictory
她们仍处在不断探索中
and still figuring it out,
90年代的 “怪胎与书呆”
and in the 90s, there was “Freaks and Greeks”
和“我所谓的生活”中的角色琳赛·威尔和安吉拉·切斯
and “My So-Called Life” and their characters Lindsay Weir and Angela Chase.
我的意思是 整部剧的前提
I mean the whole premise of the show,
基本上就是她们自我探索的过程
the shows were just them trying to figure themselves out basically.
可惜那两部剧就播了一季
But those shows only lasted a season each.
从那以后 我再也没有看见过类似的电视剧
and I haven’t really seen anything like that on TV since.
这是我在看那些电视剧的时候
So this is a scientific diagram of my brain.
描述我大脑的一张科学简图
around the time when I was, when I started watching those TV shows.
我那时候从初中
I was like ending middle school,
刚升入高中
starting high school.
现在高二了
I’m a sophomore now,
我一直在尝试调和所有不同的行为冲突
and I was trying to reconcile all of these differences,
那些女孩在成长过程中
that you’re told you can’t be,
被告知你不能做这些事
when you’re growing up as a girl,
你不能美貌与智慧兼得
You can’t be smart and pretty.
你要是对追求时尚感兴趣 你就不能做女权主义者
You can’t be a feminist who’s also interested in fashion.
要不是为了别人的眼光 通常指男人
You can’t care about clothes if it’s not for the sake of
你就不能在乎穿着打扮
what other people usually men will think of you.
所以我一直想弄清楚这些是怎么回事
So I was trying to figure all that out
我感到有一点困惑
and I felt a little confused,
我也有在博客上写过这些
and I said so on my blog,
我说我想为青少年女孩创建一个网站
and I’ve said that I wanted to start a website for teenage girls,
并不是那种只是单一的
that was not this kind of one-dimensional
展示强势的特点
strong character empowerment thing,
因为我认为对女权主义的误解
because I think one thing that can be very alienating about a misconception of feminism
会让女孩们对成为一位女权主义者望而却步
is that girls then think that to be a feminist,
她们觉得成为女权主义者 必须合乎你的要求
they have to live up to you.
对自己的信仰始终如一
You know, being perfectly consistent in your beliefs,
绝不能动摇 绝不能心存疑虑
never being insecure, never having doubts,
要无所不知
having all of the answers.
但事实并非如此
And this is not true and actually
实际上 一旦调和了这种冲突
reconciling all the contradictions.
我感觉女权主义更容易理解了
I was feeling became easier once.
女权主义不是一本规则手册
I understood that feminism was not a rule book,
不是一种探讨 不是一种对话 一个过程
but a discussion, a conversation, a process.
这是我去年创办的一本杂志里面的两页
And this is a spread from a zine that I made last year,
从那时候起 我就已经进军插图界了
when um I I mean I think I’ve let myself go a bit on the illustration front since,
所以我在博客上说 我想为青少年女生创办一个读物
So I said on my blog that I wanted to start a this publication for teenage girls,
并邀请大家投稿 文章 照片都可以
and ask people to submit their writing, their photography,
无论什么都可以加入我的团队
whatever to be a member of our staff.
我收到了大约3000封邮件
I got about 3,000 emails.
我和我的编辑主任读了这些邮件
My editorial director and I went through them,
并组建了一个团队
and put together staff of people,
去年9月 我们就创办了这个杂志
and we launched last September.
这是一段我首位编辑来信的摘录
And this is an excerpt from my first editors letter or
我们“菜鸟”杂志
where I say that Rookie,
并不是无所不知
we don’t have all the answers.
我们也在探索过程中
W’re still figuring it out too,
但是重点不在于给女孩们提供答案
but the point is not to give grls the answers
更不是为了向她们颁发自己寻求答案的认可
and not even give them permission to find the answers themselves,
而是希望鼓励她们理解
but hopefully inspire them to understand that
她们可以给予自己认可
they can give themselves that permission,
她们可以提出自己的问题 然后找出自己的答案
they can ask their own questions, find their own answers.
种种这些 以及“菜鸟”杂志 我想都是为了我们解决各种困惑
All of that and rookie I think we’ve been trying to make it a nice place
提供一个很好的平台
for all of that to be figured out.
所以 我不是在说“学我们的样子”
So I’m not saying like “Be like us”,
以及“我们是完美的典范”
and “We’re perfect role models”,
因为我们不是
because we’re not,
我们只是想用这种方式帮助女孩们
but we just want to help represent girls in a way,
展现她们多姿多彩的另一面
that shows shows those different dimensions.
我们有文章叫做
I mean we have articles called on
《关注自我:如何忽视别人的眼光》
“”On Taking Yourself Seriously: How to Not Care What People Think of You”
但是我们也有文章
but we also have articles like,
《我正在探索》
I’m figuring it out!
如果你用这文章 你可以解决任何事
if you use that you can get away with anything.
我们也有文章名为《哭脸瞬间消融术》
We also have articles called “How to Look Like You Weren’t just Crying in Less than Five Minutes.”
那么以上所有 我仍很感谢
So all of that being said I still really appreciate those characters
电影里那些角色
you know in movies,
和我们网站上的文章
and you know articles like that on our site,
它们不仅仅是关于强大
that are just about being a totally powerful,
还包括自我认同 自尊
maybe finding your acceptance with yourself and self-esteem
以及自身缺点
and your flaws and um
以及如何对待它们
how you accept those.
那么我希望我的演讲
So what I want you to take away from my talk
给予你们的是
the lesson of all of this is to
请学习史迪薇·尼克斯
just be Stevie Nicks.
学她就行了
Like that’s all you have to do.
因为我最欣赏她的 不同于所有的就是
Because my favorite thing about her other than like everything is
她从来都是霸气的出现在舞台上
that she is very has always been unapologetically present on stage,
从不为她的缺点辩护
and unapologetic about her her flaws
能调和她所有矛盾的感受
and about reconciling all of her contradictory feelings.
能让你倾听
And she makes you listen to them,
能让你思考
and think about them.
所以 请学习史迪薇·尼克斯吧
And yeah, so please be Stevie Nicks.
谢谢大家
Thank you.
