You know what I love? I love girls admiring each other. I love girls repeatedly calling each other goddesses, princesses, queens. I love that so much of that happens on tumblr.
And I love that we do that about female characters too. Sometimes people get the idea that fangirls sit around all day fantasizing about Benedict Cumberbatch and Robert Carlyle, and yeah, true, we do a fair amount of that—but I dare you to stop for a minute and watch how passionate girls get about their favorite female characters or celebrities. I guaran-freakin-tee you that I gush about Lucy Heartfilia and Taylor Swift more than I even think about Benedict Cumberbatch. And no, this is not about sexuality—it’s simply about the fact that I flipping love girls having a healthy admiration for other girls, for girls praising each other and building each other up, and the fact that these amazing girls and fantastic friendships are far more important and interesting right now than guys and/or romantic relationships.
