Okay, it's actually 13, but what kind of monster makes a list of 13?! ;)
There are a few mild spoilers in here. If you're not caught up on a show or haven't seen a movie yet and would like to remain in the dark, just nod, pretend you agree with the awesomeness of the pictured ass-kicker, and skip to the next one.
#10 - Eleanor Shellstrop [Kristen Bell; The Good Place, Season 1]
Eleanor is a bad person who died a horribly embarrassing death and ended up in The Good Place by mistake. Seriously, she's a bad person....
What does the word female ass-kickers mean to you? Ass-kickers come in all shapes and sizes. There are the crazy ones like Harley Quinn or the quirky ones like Nymphandora Tonks. Many of us think that female ass-kickers can only be tough fighting machines like Sarah Conner and Ellen Ripley or Carol Peletier when in fact, physical strength is not the only strength. Determination is a strength and intelligence is a strength. Female ass-kickers are strong women and that counts physically as well as emotionally.
Disney had its share of awesome women and not-so-cool women, correct? Ironically, they got shit for the way they portrayed women. I'm pretty sure you've read ButtercupthePPG's article about Disney. Her posts were like something an angry teenager would say! Anyways, I would now mention the most awesome women in Disney.
Let's start with Mulan. I'm pretty sure it was based on some folklore and a historical event in China that happened so long ago. Mulan started off in the movie as an unconfident girl trying to bring honor to her family.
Wasting time on an introduction when there are 10 kick-ass moms in need of appreciation? That's not a very good use of anyone's time!
#9 & #10 - Hilda & Zelda Spellman (Sabrina the Teenage Witch)
Played by Caroline Rhea & Beth Broderick, 1996-2003
When Sabrina's witch powers began to manifest, she came to live with her aunts Hilda and Zelda. Hilda was wild, fun, and slightly insane. Zelda was smart, studious, and always knew what to do. They were the perfect balance of...
You know what I love? Movies about women who kick ass. It doesn't have to be physical. I just want to watch awesome ladies being awesome, or doing awesome things. (That was my final use of the word "awesome", so stop thinking about making this into a drinking game.)
You know what I hate? Rebranding. Or, to be specific, since this rant will focus on movie posters: Posters for female-driven movies that go out of their way to appeal to a male audience. (Because GOD FORBID a BOY watches a movie about GIRLS!) This poster issue is what I refer to as Bro-ifying. (Is that a...
2015 has been a pretty lady-ful year, so I thought I'd share a few of my favourite ass-kicking ladies that have warmed my heart and shattered my soul in 2015.
Female Ass-Kicker of the Year
I guess in this club we tend to focus on the fictional ladies that kick some ass, but I wanted to acknowledge the real-life women who question, educate and inspire on a daily basis. Malala Yousafzai is definitely one of those women. She is remarkable as she discusses the importance of everything from the...
THIS IS VERY URGENT AND NOT A JOKE! ALSO DON'T GOOF OFF!!!!
I really mean it! What would you be able to do if SOPA/TPP censors the internet? What would you be able to do if writing fanfics and drawing fanarts become illegal? What would you do if it's illegal to do a cover of your...
Blossom from PPG- Even though she is not a tomboy, she is still tough. And, she's pretty calm even in the face of a situation (except for the time when she worries about failing on a test.) I like her for that- being calm and not showing fear. Even though she is unconfident at times, she can still kick butt. But, she has some drawbacks to herself that I dislike about her- she can be a bit childish or immature, and she is quick to argue with her tomboyish sister. Another drawback is, she is very bossy.
Yeah, I played TLOZ long ago, now I hate that game because the series always make Zelda look fucking weak and make Link too strong. Why can't Zelda ever toughen up and fight back?! She is just too cowardly to fight back, and she has no courage just because she is fucking girly and has that stupid triforce of wisdom! I hate the series because it's way too male dominated! Any girl who plays the series is a lesbian! And any boy who plays the game will be way too overprotective of their female relatives, friends, or even girlfriends!
She's been a suffragist, a soldier and a sex symbol. But it took 75 years to bring the world's most famous female superhero to the big screen. Why we need Wonder Woman now. By Eliana Dockterman for TIME, 19 DEC 2016.
