Breakfast of champions. #LongWeekend #Keswick
I think I am going to print this out and frame it and hang it above my desk.
I am DYING. This is probably the best day ever.
Had a lot of time for nails today! #Gosh #MissMinty #OPI #ITheadoraYou #Sephora #SetTheMood #BibbidiBobbidiPink
He knows I should be writing so he takes up the space where my laptop should be. #scumbagcat
“You have to question a cinematic culture which preaches artistic expression, and yet would support a decision that is clearly a product of a patriarchy-dominant society, which tries to control how women are depicted on screen. The MPAA is okay supporting scenes that portray women in scenarios of sexual torture and violence for entertainment purposes, but they are trying to force us to look away from a scene that shows a woman in a sexual scenario which is both complicit and complex. It’s misogynistic in nature to try and control a woman’s sexual presentation of self. I consider this an issue that is bigger than this film.”
-Ryan Gosling on the controversy around the rating of his film ‘Blue Valentine’
Sometimes I think Ryan Gosling has piqued in his awesomeness, and he proves me wrong.
- Avengers (that includes any of the individual characters movies)
- Star Trek
- Star Wars
- And pretty much anything that’s action or targeted to guys
A guy friend of mine today said it was weird that my friend had all the X-Men movies because she was a girl. Needless to say we almost threw him out of the car. So I would like to prove to him that just because we have vagina’s that doesn’t impair us from enjoying an action film.
Women of tumblr please back me up.
I know Petra gets it a lot as a gamer girl but REALLY. How long do we have to keep proving ourselves? We were at the theatre the other day and I saw the poster for Fast and the Furious 6 and OH MY GOD GUYS I CANNOT WAIT!
I mostly ignore the Frisky these days but I did giggle at this one.
Just to add: I think GoT is actually really good for women. Just look at the female characters: Arya and Danaerys and even Cersei. These are STRONG women! And sure they’re flawed or bitchy or unsure but REAL WOMEN are strong or bitchy or unsure. I’m even alright with Sansa even though most of my friends seem to hate her because, yea, she made some bad choices but she is really really trying and I don’t find fault in that.
