My older sister told the story of when she was in Junior High, she stayed up all night reading Gone With The Wind. She told Mom what had happened in the morning. Mom let her stay home from school and sleep. She was especially sympathetic, as she revealed that she did the same thing when she was a kid.
There seems to be a Gone With The Wind gene in my family, as I have a cousin who was named Tara long before it became an acceptable name. But, for whatever reason, it wasn’t activated in me.
As for the story, I watched the movie, and was underwhelmed. There was a love triangle, which was of little interest to me. The dynamic between the Confederacy and the Union was much more compelling. My sister was especially impressed by how Scarlet was at a low point and pulled herself through, being strong and independent and stuff. I was thinking that she deserved to be laid low, as she was an entitled brat.
So apparently which types of chromosomes that you have are more telling than what genes you inherit.
