Elle Woods was hollering back before the movement. This is why i love this movie. It’s so progressive. Elle is a femme feminist who comes by it the hard way. She doesn’t change for the bookish people, the elitists, or for the feminists. She just does what she needs to do, and what she wants, even when at first it was chasing a boy. Then the movie drops the romance. IT DROPS THE ROMANCE. chick flicks don’t do that. Emmett asking her out is a footnote at the very end. And this whole time, she is classy, and lady like, and has pride in herself and her work. She’ll go to a costume party as a playboy bunny, but like hell will she sleep with her professor for an internship. Elle is my feminist role model

I remember listening to my DAD defend Legally Blonde. An uncle was saying “Oh look, it’s that stupid movie again.” as he flipped through the channels. My dad responded with “Oh yeah, that movie where the blonde girl with great grades works really hard to get into pre-law, studies hard and proves herself to her peers and bosses while maintaining her integrity and not sleeping with her boss? What a terrible message to send girls.”
Also, I love this movie because Reese Witherspoon.
And don’t forget that she has serious female friends and wins the case by way of her specialist knowledge of so-called “feminine things” that no one else takes seriously enough to even bother with.
The movie also passes the Bechdel test.
“My body belongs to me, and is not the source of anyone’s honor”
“Yes” doesn’t always mean “yes” when you haven’t created a situation in which your partner feels comfortable saying “no.”
I feel like this should be obvious. But every time I see someone say “yes means yes; no means no” I cringe a little. Consent isn’t always that simple.
Sometimes I have the time and patience to get from an idea to a fully fleshed-out, penciled, inked and coloured comic.
Sometimes I don’t.
COME ON TINA COHEN CHANG! why arent they giving her more roles?!?!?!?! WHY WHY WHY.

Thank you to all who came to the debut of CLITERACY last night. It was seriously amazing to see the responses. Crowds around the wall laughing, pointing to laws, calling friends to look, camera phones out, one friend got goosebumps, and another cried. It was really something. Holy f****ng CLIT!
Cliteracy needs to be taught in all schools.
How ya doin’? I’m Brody.

(Better Off Ted)
Yo that’s some black-Asian solidarity for ya.
Oh also is there anyone who can take that last gif and make it one of those “WHITE PEOPLE” gifs??????? PLEASE????
Don’t know if anyone else has done it already but here’s my contribution!
thats soooo true!
statistically white ppl are the exotic ones!
finally watched the whole season of girls 2012…
overall great show.. i hate the fact that it is a predominantly white cast.. fucking annoys me.
but hey thats hollywood.
other than that, the story is frustratingly… realistic. too annoying. all the characters are annoying.. i dont know whats more annoying… the characters? or how the narrative resonates in me. i have been the annoying person in the main character. i hate her. i hate myself. its soo raw.
its like youre being forced to see something you already know but you dont want to face it.
made me reflect
and thats why despite the lack of rainbow cast, i think its a great show.
it stung, it hurt.
PRAISE. dont you dare bitch on feminism.
