"Whenever I draw pictures of people, Nana helps me color them to make them fancy!"
Toying around with ideas for a T-shirt for my daughter. The official Disney princess shirts for little girls irk me slightly. I can deal with how they’re fluorescent pink and sparkly but not with how the princesses on shirts are always either limited to 1-5 of them or they’re stuffed in so that some are hidden behind others. Not to mention they are always depicted in their fancy ballgowns and their superficial beauty and wealth is glamorised (like the world’s not bombarding little girls enough with that crap already -although I have to give exception here to Merida and of course Pocahontas who doesn’t have a fancy dress as such but then she’s usually stuffed to the back line in group images or left out altogether so meh) while other more valuable princess traits like kindness, perseverance, courage, generosity, thirst for knowledge etc. are for the most part ignored.

Los Angeles is known for many things: great weather, a laidback lifestyle, and Hollywood’s biggest stars. But for many who live in La La Land, the pressure to conform to a certain beauty standard can leave them feeling downright depressed.
my favorite kim k moment is when she was concerned her taste buds were changing because she ate an olive and liked it but didn’t want to
All-girl barber shop quartet nails it!
The dichotomy of feminine Sansa and her tomboy little sister, Arya, coupled with the modern tendency to champion a misunderstanding of feminism in the form of “strong women” only, erroneously causes many readers and viewers to assume that Sansa is somehow in the wrong from the very beginning. They view her through the misconception-colored glasses of “femininity=weakness”, and assume she is weak, soft, and shallow.
Despite the wishes of fanboys everywhere, Sansa Stark is here to stay, and may be one of the most important characters in political-fantasy to date. The young girl, trained in courtesy and domestic arts, began coming of age, gaining political awareness, and fighting for her own survival before many other characters in this series, and has the potential to become the most powerful player of “the game of thrones” in Westeros."
