What makes me sad about it is that the Women Against Feminism purport to be against feminism because they love men so much, and yet like so many avowed anti-feminists, they seem to appreciate men for the functional roles they fulfill for the WAFs – as providers of paychecks, openers of jars, lifters of heavy shit – and not for the actual human beings they are.
A big part of the reason why I am a feminist is because I don’t want to relate to Brian simply as a provider of paychecks, an opener of jars, a lifter of heavy shit. I want to be able to help provide the paychecks. I want to be able to open my own jars, and open them for him too. I want to be able to help move the heavy sofa instead of sitting around watching him struggle on his own. I want to be his partner in our relationship, and for me that means pitching in and helping with everything, not just the tasks that don’t require a lot of muscle.
If you asked me to list the top million things I like about Brian, his ability to open jars and lift heavy things might show up somewhere in the 990,000s. Here are things that would show up long before: because he makes me laugh, because we have the best conversations over Sunday morning coffee, because I like the way he smells and the way the skin around his eyes crinkles when he smiles at me and the hair on the back of his hands, because he decided to read War and Peace this summer, because he picked out “The Punk Singer” for us to watch one night, because he does funny dances just to make me smile, because he has a way about him that makes people want to open up to him within hours of meeting him. There are so many things I love about my husband, and almost none of them have to do with his grip strength.
During her chat with the Daily Beast, Rodriguez confirmed that she had a huge problem with the fact that
Letty was intended to be involved in a love triangle with Vin Diesel’s
Dom Torretto and Paul Walker’s Brian O’Conner.
“It was more of a ‘Point Break’ idea,” Rodriguez
explained. “They just followed the format without thinking about the
reality of it. Is it realistic for a Latin girl who’s with the alpha-est
of the alpha males to cheat on him with the cute boy? I had to put my
Rodriguez then revealed how she got out of this cinematic conundrum.
“I basically cried and said, ‘I’m going to quit,’ and,
‘Don’t sue me, please – I’m sorry, but I can’t do this in front of
millions of people.’ My whole point in being an actress is that I
thought I got to live a dream. And I don’t dream about being a slut! Do
But rather than being pressurized by the studio and creative team
into going along with the original draft, she was backed by the film’s
lead star, Vin Diesel.
“Vin was the first one to pull me to the side while I was crying,”
she declared. “And he just looked at me and said, ‘I got your back.
Chill out and let me handle this, and you’re right — it makes me look
bad anyway.’ And there you go. That was beginning of the Letty
Rodriguez also admitted that she had to fight for the scene in The Fast & the Furious where she punched a man at the Race Wars.
“I fought for that one too! I fought for the punch, because they
didn’t think a girl would ever get involved,” she added. “It’s like,
have you ever been to the ghetto, homie? If your boys are fighting and
you don’t fight, they make fun of you, they crack on you, they’d
probably kick you out of the group.”
Howie: We love coming to Japan because you guys have so much love for the Backstreet Boys and we know that. That’s why I think this next song is very appropriate for tonight. It’s a song that Nick and I wrote together. It’s called “Love Somebody”. And if you love the person to the right or the left of you, turn around to them and say aishiteimasu.
I’m constantly getting asked why I love Brian Gamble so much, so here, I’ve provided 10 photos with 10 reasons why he’s my favorite fictional character. And these 10 reasons are not even HALF of all of the reasons why:
1. How hot he is in an LAPD SWAT uniform.
2. The fact that he can make drinking look like porn
3. Hot and dirty Gamble’s just an immediate pass. (Hot damn)
4. Gun show. (Literally and arm-wise)
5. How his back can look so freaking strong when it’s clenched against the side of a subway car.
6. THAT GODDAMN SMIRK
7. His panty-melting eyes
8. The multiple ear piercings and the neck mic have suddenly become porn.
Graham came on stage and you had no idea what he was doing there. Graham was like a mystery. A wonderful mystery. Why was he funny? Was he funny? What on earth was he doing on a stage?…He was on a different planet, a wonderful mystery, Graham in his own world.

I had never made a FF before, so why not? I made this beautiful [lmao] Brian Molko collage and then turned it into a shitty edition because my internet was gone for 6 hours, so let it be worth something. This year I became mutuals with so many amazing blogs/people on this website who make my life better without even noticing. There are other accounts who I have been following for a long time and that I’d never unfollow. Thank you ♡ and happy holidays.
