after all the stuff i’ve been reading about the supergirl series —half of the cast is bullshit, the other half are puppies— i’m so proud of my babies britt and kendrick that in this moment i want to celebrate with anna’s usual teasing, as much as hurts
Many strong girls have similar stories. They were socially isolated and lonely in adolescence. Smart girls are often the girls most rejected by peers, their strength is a threat and they’re punished for being different. Girls who are unattractive or who don’t worry about their appearance are scorned. This isolation is often a blessing because it allows girls to develop a strong sense of self.
