Apologies, just a pet peeve ‘o’ mine. (via afternoonsnoozebutton)

Can We Retire the Phrase “Real Women,” Please? →
This made me surprisingly happy. It’ll make you happy too, probably. Here is an excerpt: Let me remind you: She is beautiful And she is beautiful And she is beautiful And you and I are beautiful, too. We all have parts of us that are glossy and smooth. We have parts that we shine forth proud as peacocks. And we all have parts that we want to hide away. (Photo: wikimedia) (Even she...

stfufauxminists: butterfly-teeth said: So, Jezebel isn’t to be trusted? Sorry, I don’t really read that website much. Weeellll, the thing with Jezebel is that they seem much more concerned with getting traffic than actually publishing quality pieces. They’re posted shit from rape apologist assholes before, Hugo… It’s also worth noting that Jezebel is owned by Gawker, the ones who...

I’m posting it here because I’m unsure it will make it out of moderation. “WTF is this shit.

10 Famous Films That Surprisingly Fail The Bechdel... →
missclarabow: For a movie to pass The Bechdel Test, it must contain just one thing - a scene in which two or more named female characters have a conversation (that is, back and forth dialogue) about anything at all besides men. Anything, even if it’s something stereotypically feminine, like shopping or shoes. It could be about dog poo. It doesn’t matter. Sounds simple, right? Then it might be...

somethingtoobrave: During Newsweek’s Oscar roundtable, The Help’s Viola Davis tried to speak about the difficulties of being a black actress in Hollywood—but a well-intentioned reply from Theron was just another example of the problem. As pointed out in the comments, this author is a bit off. “The article is about the struggle for a black woman to be cast in certain roles in Hollywood...
