Female-Driven Genre-Fiction Wishlist:

  • Girl teams, all girl teams.
  • Female characters of color who actually represent their culture.
  • Less self-sacrificing, martyr girls more girls and women who do things for themselves without feeling bad about it or people judging them for it.
  • Mothers who do things other than parent and cook.
  • Mother and daughter characters who don’t hate each others guts.
  • No more “I’m not like the other girls”.
  • Girl characters who are good at math and science.
  • More poor female characters, who come from nothing, and exploring how that effects their heroism. And I don’t mean like middle-class poor, I mean, like having to chose between food and paying bills poor.
  • Girls who don’t like each other, but can still respect each other.
  • No more girl heroes/villains whose tragic backstory is getting raped.
  • No more female characters of color dying or sacrificing themselves for white female characters.
  • More fat girl characters in fantasy and other genre fiction who are the ones kicking-ass and taking names and being haled the hero. That are defined by something other than their weight.
  • More girls of various body-types other than “lean.”
  • More disabled characters in stories that aren’t necessarily about their disability.
  • More unattractive girl characters.
  • Girls that are not looking for relationships or losing their virginity.
  • More non-binary female characters.
  • More LGBTAQ+ female characters.
  • “Strong” female characters who actually do things other than fight all the time and have a personality.
  • More “strong” female characters whose “strength” is something other than fighting.
  • No more stories sold as “feminist” in which only the leading character is female and everyone else is man, and only other female characters are minor or antagonists.
  • No more using “like a girl” or being a girl as an insult.
  • Stop making female characters be “bitches” just because. Unlikable characters are still supposed to be likable, meaning: love to hate, hate to love. Just look at Scarlett O’Hara, she’s a godawful awful person, but she’s a fantastic character.

Signs of the Zodiac Before They Die

1.Get into a fight with an Aries. I’m not talking about an over the phone fight, I’m talking a real toe-to-toe, heart pumping showdown. It will most likely be more beneficial to you if they were on your side in the fight, think of like a bar fight or taking on bullies at your school, but fighting them yourself would be just as exhilarating and you would most likely be better friends after the incident than you were before.Aries people are warriors and they like to know their friends can hold their own if something goes down.

2.Eat with a Taurus. By this I do not mean take them to a local fast food restaurant to hork down some greasy burgers. I mean take them to an amazing five star restuarent preferably one that has been around for decades and has built a strong reputation.

Things to do with each of the signs before you die

1.Get into a fight with an Aries. I’m not talking about an over the phone fight, I’m talking a real toe-to-toe, heart pumping showdown. It will most likely be more beneficial to you if they were on your side in the fight, think of like a bar fight or taking on bullies at your school, but fighting them yourself would be just as exhilarating and you would most likely be better friends after the incident than you were before.Aries people are warriors and they like to know their friends can hold their own if something goes down.

2.Eat with a Taurus. By this I do not mean take them to a local fast food restaurant to hork down some greasy burgers. I mean take them to an amazing five star restuarent preferably one that has been around for decades and has built a strong reputation. Then allow the Taurus to order for you, it may take a while, but Tauruses have wonderful taste. Make sure that you don’t rush them or yourself, take your time enjoy the food, enjoy the atmosphere, enjoy the music, enjoy the feel of your luxurious clothes, and enjoy your Taurus escort.

3.Go out on the town with a Gemini. Wait till its night time and the social life of your particular city is buzzing, and then call your Gemini friend. Not only will they have the perfect location, but they’ll most likely have the transportation to get you there(Gemini’s hate not being able to get around when they want to). Be sure not to just contain them to one party, or one club ,encourage them to take you club hopping. Gemini’s are the most amazing social butterflies, not only will they know the right people to get you into to any club or party, they’ll know enough people at the party to make it a truly memorable night. Trust Gemini’s they’ll show you a whole new world in your own backyard.

4.Have a rainy day inside with a Cancer. It will be even better if your at their house, which will most likely be stocked with comfort food and pillows. Cancers can turn their fortress of solitude into a veritable wonderland, if there men they will most likely have the newest video games and systems, and if the are women they will most likely have a wonderful assortment of make-up that they don’t mind sharing. Also, be sure to stay the night, being ruled by the moon these lovely people get there second wind at night, and would love to pull an all night junk food and call of duty session, or an all night truth or dare/make-over session. With a Cancer you are guaranteed to have the most fun indoors you’ve ever had in your life.

5. Watch a Leo do what they love to do. You are allowed to join in only if you’re ok with not being the center of attention. In fact, let the Leo be in charge, join a choir directed by a Leo, or a stage production directed by a Leo, or play in the background band in a Leo performance it may not be the best experience during rehearsals, but during the performance you will never feel better in your life. Leo’s absolutely work magic on a stage, and have a way of making everyone in the auditorium feel just as magical, doubly so if your on stage with them. You see something funny happens to a Leo when their plans come together, the bossy roaring lion that was once there gives way to a burning sun of generosity, and love. They go from whiny cats to Aslan himself and when that happens there’s no better place to be than witnessing such an inspiring sight.

6. Let a Virgo fix it. The “it” may very from person to person, but if you need anything to be perfect and you cant quite get it there, call Virgo. Yes they may seem a bit harsh at times, but they only critique because they care. Listen, let your Virgo hairstylist cut your hair and it will be perfect for your face shape, let your Virgo accountant balance your books and they will be perfect to the penny, let your Virgo make-up artist do your face and you will never look more flawless in your life. Virgo’s love a job done right, and unlike Leo’s they don’t need a whole lot of fanfare, they just need to know they did their job flawlessly and that their hard work was appreciated.

7. Have a romantic evening with a Libra. I don’t mean a date per say , you can have a romantic evening with a Libra regardless of the nature of your relationship. Being in a duo is hard-wired into their DNA, so it doesn’t matter if your just friends, siblings, or in a committed relationship Libra’s first instinct is to be romantic. So go out with them, through away all preconceived notions of what an appropriate friendship is and take your Libra on a date same-sex or not. Take them to the movies, or on a paddle-boat ride at sunset, or on a picnic and watch them become all smiles, and amazing conversation. You will not only have more fun with them then you ever  did alone, but you will truly learn what it is to love without a need for sex. Libras have no problem being romantic and cuddly even in their most platonic relationships and being on the receiving end of that kind of love is a heart warming experience not to be missed.

8.Face your demons with a Scorpio. Dig deep with Scorpio because no sign is more well equipped to purge your emotional baggage than a Scorpio. If anything traumatic has happened to you talk to a Scorpio, but make sure you are ready to deal with it and get over it. Scorpio’s can summon the demons of your past, but once they’re summoned they are very hard to push back down, so don’t bring anything up your not ready to deal with. But if you are sure you are ready to deal with it Scorpio will stick with through the entire ordeal and you will feel much better afterwords, and Scorpio will to. You see Scorpio loves helping people sort through the dark parts of their life and the recipient of such a session usually leaves completely free of the past, and all emotional trauma. (Look at that a Scorpio post and I didn’t mention sex) :)

9.Go on an adventure with a Sagittarius. The further away the better, across the country is good, but across the world would be perfect. Sagittarius’ are the best people to have with you when going to another country, not only will they know the best way to travel there, but because of their propensity to go native you’ll see a side of the country most tourist never see. Let Sagittarius take you to the coolest trails, where you see the native wildlife, let them take you to the mountain with the best view, let them take you to the beach with the best waves.  Sagittarius’ are natural explorers trust them and you’ll always remember your trip as one of the best decisions of your life.

10. Climb the corporate ladder with a Capricorn. I know this may sound silly but I’ll explain. Take your Capricorn to any event at which you wish to make yourself look better for the purposes of advancement. Like your bosses party, or a buisness luncheon, the snootier the better(bonus points if any political dignitaries are involved). Capricorns are amazing at putting their best foot forward and are even capable of making you look better by just being with them, they are savvy and will quickly key in on the social hierarchy of any gathering and use it to their and your advantage. So if you want that promotion, bring a Capricorn with you.

11. Go “out there” with an Aquarius. What I mean by “out there” is out on a limb, past the point of comfort. Nearly every Aquarius has some out there hobby that they are somewhat fanatical about. Join in with there hobby, don’t be afraid to let them teach you about it. Aquarians are to most people what Prometheus was to the human race, the giver of progress. If you listen and learn from an Aquarius they’ll truly expand their minds, and you may even tap into another dimension.

12.Get saved by a Pisces. I mean when you really hit rock bottom, call a Pisces or you could help them save someone else. You see sometimes Pisces are very scattered and spacey, but when they see someone in trouble their Messianic switch gets turned on and they become almost Christ-like. They glow with a love that is amazingly pure and true and needs nothing in return. They begin to spout off the most inspiring phrases like it were nothing more than light banter, and they have a knack for seeing who you really are, the good and the bad and loving you anyway. So whether you’re there to see them give this kind of love or you are the recipient always call Pisces if you need a savior.

That's the thing about liking someone

I don’t like being touched, or having my hair played with or being hugged.
But with you, I could spend forever wrapped around you.

I can’t stand sleeping with anyone. Not even my own family. Not even my best friends.
But, id sleep with you or near you any night possible.

There are very people I can stand being around for long periods of time.
But you, I could go hours on end having around.

I will not drink after people and don’t you dare think I’ll share my food with someone, that shit is more valuable than a million bucks to most.
But, I’d give you my favorite and last bite of food if you wanted it.

But you, you I’d do anything with.
And there’s not a single other person i would.

I don’t like when people talk about sensory processing disorder (SPD) in autistic people as a solely bad thing that can only cause trouble. Sure, SPD can make your life much harder, but it also makes it more intense sometimes, and it’s not always a bad thing. Like I can’t stand more than three sources of sound, and some sounds send me into an overload immediately, but at the same time the joy I get from listening to music is profound and deep. I can’t eat 85% of foods because of the texture or smell, but the ones I do like I can eat for breakfast, lunch and supper and they will always taste perfect to me. I can’t bare most clothes textures, but nothing feels better to me than wrapping up in my favorite blanket or touching soft pieces of fabric. Of course some of my senses are understimulated, but it’s also good sometimes. I never get motion sickness cause my vestibular sense is somewhat weak, and though my tendency to focus on what’s right in front of my eyes and ignore the peripheral vision can be confusing, I’m much better at picking out small details and noticing changes. So SPD is not plain bad, it’s just different. And people who have it should try and find good things about their senses, because I’m sure there’s plenty of them.

It was recently Independence Day in the good ol’ US of A. And, like anyone who lives outside the USA, I thought it featured Will Smith, aliens and Jeff Goldblum (like all the best stories). But actually, it’s an important day of inspiration for all people of the world in its message – the moral sense of rights and equality for all people. Once such game that touched on these important issues, albeit in an alternate and much later time, was BioShock Infinite. So I thought what more fitting than to feature an all American food from a game that recently reminded us of how much progress we’ve made, but yet how far we still have to go.

And we are ashamed for having desire in our culture. Women are shamed for having desire for anything — for food, for sex, for anything. We’re asked to only be the object for other people’s desire. There’s nothing that directing is about more than desire. It’s like, “I want to see this. I want to see it with this person. I want to change it. I want to change it again.” It’s like directing is female desire over and over again, and film is the capturing of human emotions and somehow men were able to swindle us into believing that that is their specialty. All they told us our whole life is we’re too emotional to do any real jobs, yet they’ve taken the most emotional job, which is art making about human emotions and said we’re not capable of it.
—  Jill Soloway on female filmmakers

there’s a specific, infuriating subsect of nerdy white girl that is way too fucking particular about tea, and I personally am not here for them. like they’re all “nothing horrifies me more than seeing someone microwave tea” and im over here like “nothing horrifies me more than the brutal colonization of hundreds of countries and millions of people that your ancestors perpetuated for your tea” like shut up jessica, you boring imperialist fuck, call me back when you’ve stopped revelling in the privileges afforded to you by centuries of large scale racial and cultural violence

Realistic Intake for y’all

Okay so I really never make intake posts because I feel like posting about what I eat is not only boring, but also kind of silly. BUT the last time I posted one (as a joke for an anon), a lot of people really liked it because of how “real” it was and it made people feel better about how much they eat during a day. Because if we’re being honest, I eat A LOT.

Like…SO much more than I ever see any other fitblr’s posting. And the stuff I eat isn’t 100% healthy. It’s not even 50% healthy a lot of the time! Like, I don’t  drink smoothies for meals or eat bowls of veggies for lunch or small portions of anything. Ever. So I thought it would be nice and refreshing for y’all to see an actual intake post of someone who is extremely active. Marathon training requires fuel, and a lot of it, and I am CONSTANTLY hungry. SO this is what a pretty typical day of food looks like for me:

Pre-run snack: A banana

Post-run snack/Breakfast: Two pieces of brioche with raspberry jam, and an apple with peanut butter

Lunch: An enormous bowl of pasta with bolognese sauce

Snack: A banana and a Lion bar

Dinner: A foot-long french baguette sandwich with butter, Gouda cheese, ham, and mixed greens & an entire can of Pringles

Dessert/After dinner snack: A bowl of Cookie Crisp cereal with milk

So there we have it. I’m thinking the total amount of calories for today is around 2,600-2,800 (rough estimate it might be more honestly who knows). And it’s decently balanced?!? I got plenty of fruit and a bit of vegetables, LOTS of carbs (as always), and some treats. No restriction, and I finished every meal feeling full and satisfied. Do I feel great about eating an entire can of pringles? Not really lol. But life goes on and they were delicious. Plus I was still hungry. So i ate.

SO DON’T FEEL BAD ABOUT EATING. EAT. DO IT. EAT A LOT. Your body needs it, and will thank you for it. Don’t be fooled into thinking you need to survive off of 1500 calories, and that is has to all be organic and 100% healthy. I eat this much or more EVERY DAY. Because I need to. Food = energy and I want alllllll the energy.

So next time you feel bad about going over your macros for the day or you are regretting that third piece of pizza…just think “Casey is probably eating an entire chocolate cake as we speak.” Because it’s very likely.
