i don’t know why but it made me happy
I don’t know why but it makes me happy too.
Instead of waiting in her tower, Rapunzel slices off her long, golden hair with a carving knife, and then uses it to climb down to freedom.
Just as she’s about to take the poison apple, Snow White sees the familiar wicked glow in the old lady’s eyes, and slashes the evil queen’s throat with a pair of sewing scissors.
Cinderella refuses everything but the glass slippers from her fairy godmother, crushes her stepmother’s windpipe under her heel, and the Prince falls madly in love with the mysterious girl who dons rags and blood-stained slippers.
Persephone goes adventuring with weapons hidden under her dress.
Persephone climbs into the gaping chasm.
Or, Persephone uses her hands to carve a hole down to hell.
In none of these versions is Persephone’s body violated unless she asks Hades to hold her down with his horse-whips.
Not once does she hold out on eating the pomegranate, instead biting into it eagerly and relishing the juice running down her chin, staining it red.
In some of the stories, Hades never appears and Persephone rules the underworld with a crown of her own making.
In all of them, it is widely known that the name Persephone means Bringer of Destruction.
Red Riding Hood marches from her grandmother’s house with a bloody wolf pelt.
Medusa rights the wrongs that have been done to her.
Eurydice breaks every muscle in her arms climbing out of the land of the dead.
Girls are allowed to think dark thoughts, and be dark things.
Instead of the dragon, it’s the princess with claws and fiery breath
who smashes her way from the confines of her castle
and swallows men whole.
Last year, when One Direction released “One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks),” a combination Blondie/Undertones cover they recorded for charity, the Guardian’s Adam Boult was prompted to start a list of songs that “must never be covered.” Never mind that 1D’s medley got a seal of approval from Blondie’s Debbie Harry herself; Mr. Boult said it was an “abomination” that somehow “tarnished” the original versions. So it’s not about the gender of the artist doing the cover—it’s about the gender (and age) of their fans. Think about it: Young, poppy acts, have largely young, female fan bases. I believe the reason rockist dudes feel so dang uncomfortable watching these artists cover songs by bands they love is that it points out that they might have something in common with fans of Miley, Lorde, 1D, etc. They might actually have something in common with teenage girls. And what could be worse than that?
Here’s what I want to tell these people: You could do a lot worse than sharing a teenage girl’s taste in music. The pantheon of acts who couldn’t have gotten famous without the support of teenage girls includes a lot of people and bands you probably respect a lot: Michael Jackson. Elvis Presley. The fricking BEATLES. When Nirvana were around, most of their fans weren’t 50-year-old rock critics; they were kids.
Britney is younger than Bey…
white people age like milk lol
yeah. the stress of having your parents financially dependent on you since childhood, learning disabilities, mental illness, two divorces, and drug and alcohol abuse will age you.
not to say bey has had it easier since you know, racism. but bey definitely has class privilege and as far as we know, health/ability privilege over britney. but yeah, go on and say how poorly britney has aged. It’s not like she’s been working and paying her family’s bills since she was like 15.
I have to agree on this…it’s not fair to make racial comments about one woman in comparison to another. As women, we need to be trying to cooperate with each other, not tear each other down. It only perpetuates an endless damaging cycle, in my humble opinion.
Not to mention the fact that Beyonce, the woman who stood in front of the word Feminist in big letters on national television, probably would be really upset to see that people are saying things like this.
She looks just fine to me.
You picked the wrong side, agent.
Depends on where you’re standing.
#no joke probably my favorite scene from this movie#that unnamed launch tech has no way to protect himself - this is runlow this is strike#he has no idea if he can depend on the people //around// him to protect him#but he still says no i’m not gonna do that#and he’s scared he’s so scared they all are#but shield isn’t some faceless shadowy organization (or //just// that)#shield is these people - these techs - these agents - sharon#they believe in something greater - not loyalty to captain america but to the ideal that he represents#a better world - the work they were doing (thought they were doing - //were// doing) despite hydra#and they’re gonna keep doing that - fighting for what is right standing up for what is right#and that starts right here with this one simple gigantic refusal#he stands up to the biggest toughest guy the one who could kill him easily and says no (silvertons)
I was almost in tears at the sequence where you juxtapose Cap talking about freedom, and the price you pay for it, while the loyal SHIELD agents (most of whom appear to be techs and administrators) try to delay the heavily armed, utterly ruthless STRIKE teams who’ve been coopted by HYDRA. Watching them give their lives to try to delay the launch, seeing the pilots mown down by the Winter Soldier before they can give Cap and Falcon art support, hearing that one middle aged, overweight guy shout “Don’t launch! Don’t launch!” as he runs toward a helicarrier despite the STRIKE team shooting him without a moment’s hesitation - it was one of the best moments in the film, and so utterly heartbreaking.
We’ll never know, but how much you want to bet that Steve learned the names of every single one of them and wrote their survivors a condolence letter? Or attended as many funerals as he could once he was out of the hospital? THESE were the heroes, the men and women who had nothing but their courage, and their love of freedom.
SO HARD NOT TO DANCE WHEN YOU HAVE EARPHONES ON WALKING BY YOURSELF
