Sex and The City fans everywhere know the series was groundbreaking -- for its time. However, the four wealthy Manhattan girls said plenty of insensitive things when it came to race, class, and sexuality. It was the '90s and early 2000s, and it shows. The inventive sitcom holds up in terms of comedy, but intersectionality? Not so much.
Now, #WokeCharlotte, a meme featuring Kristin Davis's prim, uptown character, is here to save the series. The progressive internet sensation breaks down the biases of Charlotte York-Goldenblatt's fellow white cisgender characters, particularly their narrow ideas about LGBT people.
Also, just like all our favorite 2018 girls, #WokeCharlotte is unapologetically intersectional. She calls out her racist mother-in-law and insensitive friends when they forget about how privileged they are.
#WokeCharlotte is even coming after President Trump, who made a lackluster cameo as a business partner of Samantha's brief, 80-year-old sugar daddy.
Even the real-life Kristen Davis (who is a UN Goodwill Ambassador who works with refugee children) is in on the joke. Maybe Cynthia Nixon should enlist #WokeCharlotte for her gubernatorial campaign?
