women appreciation life

Me: I want these new films to be legitimately critiqued and I am the last person who thinks they’re perfect.

Some Asshole: HAHAHA THESE NEW FILMS ARE SHIT, TFA IS JUST A DIVERSE NEW HOPE AND ROGUE ONE HAS NO CHARACTERS WITH PERSONALITY-THE LAST JEDI WILL TOTES BE BAD DUUUUDE :D:D:D

I believe a strong woman may be stronger than a man, particularly if she happens to have love in her heart. I guess a loving woman is indestructible.

“I had my tenth birthday party here.  We’d just moved to Sunnydale, and Mom rented the carousel for an entire hour, for me and my friends.  Except I hadn’t made any friends yet, so it was just me and Mom and Buffy riding it by ourselves, over and over and over again, for the whole hour, just so Mom felt like we’d got our money’s worth.  She’s… she’s not going to get better, is she?”
“Absolutely she will.  Summers women are tough.”

Moffat’s Women - Sally Sparrow
Sally is intuitive and smart. Although she might come across as a bit of a cynic, she is able to accept and adapt to the impossible very quickly and she can be as empathic and caring as she is quick-witted. She doesn’t give up, even when she is scared or disconcerted by what is happening, and this is what allows her to bring together the puzzle pieces of the episode. Sally most definitely is the heroine of her own story - and in the end sets in motion the events of “Blink”.

I know there’s a ton of pressure on women to be cheerful and whatnot, but I am so done with the glorification of negativity and cold bitterness. I’ve been cold, I’ve been bitter, and I’ve been negative. I’ve been ✨  misunderstood ✨ , and I’ve given in to the glorification as a means of self-preservation. And I’ve been all of those things on a regular basis, for years. But what I’ve realized since getting out of such behavior patterns and attitudes is that clinging to those things for strength was nothing more than a glorification of unhealthiness. I wasn’t overcoming stereotypes – I was deeply depressed (and often blind to the fact). Yes, we live in a difficult and deeply unjust and miserable world. Yes, there are tons of reasons to be angry. We NEED to be angry at the state of the world and we need to act and push others to act. But being /constantly/ angry is tiring and being constantly negative is immature. Yes everyone functions differently, and I /understand/, but I am so done. Being around dark things drags me down, and I am done. Be angry, act, but try to make things better. Strength is trying to rise above the negativity of the world. Strength is fighting to be better by being kind. Overcoming sexist stereotypes is sometimes not being afraid to be warm and soft and “feminine” if that’s what you want to be. I’m done with the rest of it. I’ve been dark and cynical and frigid and ✨  strong ✨  but all it did was give power to the things that were actually dragging me down and feeding the shiny darkness. I’ve given a decade of my life to it, and I’m done. 

There is not a single day I don’t get emotional about how amazing the women companions from KotOR series and SWTOR are, and how criminally underrated they are in fandom.
