Elle Woods was hollering back before the movement. This is why i love this movie. It’s so progressive. Elle is a femme feminist who comes by it the hard way. She doesn’t change for the bookish people, the elitists, or for the feminists. She just does what she needs to do, and what she wants, even when at first it was chasing a boy. Then the movie drops the romance. IT DROPS THE ROMANCE. chick flicks don’t do that. Emmett asking her out is a footnote at the very end. And this whole time, she is classy, and lady like, and has pride in herself and her work. She’ll go to a costume party as a playboy bunny, but like hell will she sleep with her professor for an internship. Elle is my feminist role model

Same.

I remember listening to my DAD defend Legally Blonde. An uncle was saying “Oh look, it’s that stupid movie again.” as he flipped through the channels. My dad responded with “Oh yeah, that movie where the blonde girl with great grades works really hard to get into pre-law, studies hard and proves herself to her peers and bosses while maintaining her integrity and not sleeping with her boss? What a terrible message to send girls.”

Also, I love this movie because Reese Witherspoon. 

And don’t forget that she has serious female friends and wins the case by way of her specialist knowledge of so-called “feminine things” that no one else takes seriously enough to even bother with.

The movie also passes the Bechdel test.

LET’S NOT FORGET that even though it starts with a situation where two girls are rivals for the same guy, they BOTH choose to ignore the social codes (and hollywood bylaws) that tell them they should be cat-fighting and trying to one-up each other, and instead they realize that they make good working partners and better friends and screw rivalry, AND ALSO HAVE EACH OTHER’S BACKS RE: WORKPLACE SEXUAL HARASSMENT. And that it portrays sororities as places where women can learn to work together and respect each other and help each other out, which sets the stage for the way Elle treats everyone she meets for the rest of the movie. OH AND IT HAS A FAT SIDE CHARACTER WHO OVERCOMES EMOTIONAL ABUSE, IS NEVER FAT-SHAMED OR USED AS THE BRUNT OF A FAT JOKE, AND LANDS THE HOTTEST MAN IN THE ENTIRE FILM. 

I adore this movie.

One of the saddest and most hil- NO BITCH, the sad thing here is the fact that you're a stripper. If you want respect, maybe you should've graduated high school. 😂😂 when did stripping become a legitimate career?

Awww, you tried so hard, but unfortunately I can’t hear you over the sound of my debt-free college degree and massive disposable income.

First day at my new job went well! Loads of training for the next two weeks. ‘Training’ in the US is actually work so ouch, I’m going to need a visa. Back to worrying that they’ll get rid of me when they realise a Canadian PR Geophysicist can’t move as freely around the US as a Canadian Citizen Geophysicist…

Hallelujah!

I have found somewhere to live! I’m moving in on Tuesday.

It’s only a one bedroom (I wanted two) but it’s a short-term lease until the end of April. It means that I have some breathing space and can look for something better in spring. It’s always easier finding an apartment when you already have one instead of living in a hotel. The rent is what I wanted to pay so it’ll give me a chance to replenish my savings account too. Yay.

Worst case scenario, I hate it there and I only have to tolerate it for eight months. I survived an entire year in my last apartment with smokers below (and their smoke going into my apartment) and a toddler upstairs so eight months should be manageable…

I cannot believe this is happening. I just arrived in Kingston expecting to move into my apartment today as agreed and they gave it to someone else.

Fuckity fuck fuck

I’m starting to think some of the people I’m following need to get laid. I don’t understand why so many of you are sharing porn. What’s with that?

Turkish multimedia artist Erdal Inci experiments with cloned motion in video to create awesomely hypnotic looping videos and gifs of himself moving through public spaces, sometimes carrying lights or other objects. Depending on the exposure, Inci sometimes appears to be no more than a shadow or isn’t visible at all, making his videos even more mysterious and dreamlike.

He states: “I realized that if you clone a recorded performance contiguously it will become perpetual. So that you can see all the time phases of the same performance in a small amount of time like 1 or 2 seconds. This gives you the chance of thinking like a choreographer with a mass crew or painter who fills its frame not in forms and colour but motion. At this point I could tell I am inspired by patterns in traditional arts & crafts , dance and repetition. Motion, performance and real environments are the outlines of the work.”

Check out more of Erdal Inci’s mesmerizing video art (and at much higher resolution) over on Vimeo, Facebook or Instagram.

A Woman Wore A Hidden Camera To Show How Many Times In A Day She Gets Harassed.

At 3:17, a woman describes an assault on a subway. You really should hear what she says so you can learn how horrific this is for many women on a daily basis.

Wow I’ve been thinking of doing that hidden camera thing for forever but never got around to it. These ladies are so brave.

I wake up at 5.30am to jog just so I don’t have to come across as many perverts as I would have to during other times of the day.  

I had a guy grab my ass at a petrol station. I was about 12 and in my Girl Guides uniform. When I looked at him, he leered at me. He was in his 50s at least.
