#this show took some turns down some suspect alleys along the way but #as manifestos go the ‘shared power’ theme running through this scene TAKES SOME F*CKING BEATNG #a giant ‘screw you’ to the Batman-esque Saviour complex running though most dude-focussed superhero franchises #’it’s me and only me who must save the helpless!’ vs ‘HERE TAKE THIS - AND USE IT TO SAVE YOURSELF AND OTHERS’ #you don’t hide power and hoard power and swoop in to impose your power on others to ‘save’ them #you share it #you teach it #’are you ready to be strong?’ #[i’m not crying YOU’RE crying] (via harrietvane)
When I first saw this, and the girl playing baseball found her inner strength…oh my god, I was all choked up and ‘frak yeah!’ and just filled with awe and gratitude and the feeling I could do anything
Dinosaurs and Cyborgs? New ‘Doctor Who’ trailer delivers action!
The new season of “Doctor Who” is almost here and promises non-stop excitement. But what of this rumor that his companion Clara may quit the Tardis?
Ahahahahahahahaha! This Sunday morning (Oz Time)! CAN’T WAIT!!!!!
I saw this video on youtube and I really wanted to share it. It’s an experiment in which this company invites people specially girls of different ages to do different actions but to them how one would think a girl does them. The video shows how as a girl grows up they are taught that to be a girl is to be weak. I don’t really have anything else to say. Just watch the video.
This is amazing, they should be showing this to young girls all across America, and teaching boys to be gentlemen and human beings with this same video
This ad made me tear up. What was said about a young girl’s self-esteem and sense of worth being destroyed during puberty really hit close to home. I’ve never seen it so well articulated or even realised the truth of it before. This is exactly how I felt as a girl entering puberty.
I think it also highlights for me why it’s so important to me to write stories where both the hero and the heroine are equal, and why I feel it so important to focus on both characters when I’m asked questions about my work. Growing up, I wanted to be the one having the adventure, not the prize at the end, and I applaud those who are highlighting the importance of breaking stereotypes so future generations can just be whoever they are without bowing to societal expectations.
So for the jocks, the geeks, the pretties, the unconcerneds, the strongs, the delicates, and for a hundred permutations in between, I hope you always feel you can be whoever you are, no matter your gender.
