Good thing "Aaah!" was translated. Subtleties like that are so often lost w/o a good translation.

Few understand the suffering & humiliation required by having gravitas, either.

“For a long time, gravitas meant that if you were a woman you had to be unattractive,” says Sally Quinn, the first-ever female network anchor. “If you were ugly and fat you had gravitas, but if you were a babe, you didn’t have gravitas, no matter how smart you were. I don’t think that’s the case anymore.”
