  1. Ironically, near as I can tell (given my limited knowledge of the language), the Finnish word “Sissi” can be interpreted as “toxic masculinity”.

    Also “courage against amazing odds…”

  2. I watched this Russian language Great Patriotic War miniseries on Amazon Prime:
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MZ9D6L7 (“The Dawns Here are Quiet”).
    It’s about a sargeant who commands a squad of young, female, “home guard” soldierettes.
    It isn’t bad. The nude “bathing in the waterfall” scene is tastefully done, but not nearly as tastefully done as the “nude girls birching one another in the sauna” scene.
