A super girly and peppy blonde girl who wears bright pink dresses and skirts everyday is best friends with a quiet goth girl who of course sports all black clothing and big lace up boots. Someone jokes and yells to them “Hey look, a fairy and a vampire!” The blonde turns around and flashes a fanged grin and says “She’s human actually.”
This has been done before, I’m sure.
also it’s pretty damn excellent to have more Rebels waiting for me every Monday
(also can’t wait for everyone else to have seen Fate of the Old Masters because I have things I need to yell about)
ladydarthcaedus is one of the best women in the world and you all should enjoy her, her characters, and their development.
None of her characters ever hang on a single trope to be interesting, nor can they be stuck in a box labeled ‘this is this type of character’, because there are so many, many different and unique personality traits for her wonderfully flawed girlies that she may be, in fact, the best female roleplayer I have ever had the pleasure of playing with.
:3 wibbles a little
this is indeed the greatest compliment I’ve received in the last 24 hours.
Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman-Hughes, 1972 and 2014
Both by Dan Bagan
Wanna see my cry like a baby? Ask me who these women were.
Hughes’ father was beaten nearly to death by the KKK when she was a kid, and what does she do? Become an activist to try and stop that from happening to other people. She raised money to bail civil rights protesters out of jail. She helped women get out of abusive situations by providing shelter for them until they got on their feet. She founded an agency that helped women get to work without having to leave their children alone, because childcare in the 1970s? Not really a thing. In fact, a famous feminist line in the 70s was “every housewife is one man away from welfare.”
Then she teamed up with Steinman to found the Women’s Action Alliance, which created the first battered women’s shelters in history. They attacked women’s rights issues through boots on the ground activism, problem solving, and communication. They stomped over barriers of race and class to meet women where they were: mostly mothers who wanted better for themselves and their children.
These are women are who I always wanted to be.
