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!
You seen them in movies right? Little girls have loved the Disney movies, and they didn't know that they are being brainwashed into "perfect little princesses." Ugh, Disney is soooo fucking stupid! Women are seen as frail, little helpless sissies while men are seen as muscly, heroic knights! I mean, I used to watch Disney once as a little girl, and it completely brainwashed me BIG TIME. At age fourteen I begun to understand those stupid, idiotic stereotypes and decided to be a tomboy and a badass instead. Anybody who believes those stereotypes are stupid, and I recommend if you have a child,...
Three issues I wish were less common with strong female characters.
1 She's a strong female star...unlike the rest of her whiny gender
I've seen a fair few strong female characters who hang mainly with boys. Not a problem, until it's revealed she so does because she doesn't have the patience for the giggling, boy obsessed simpletons that make up the rest of the female population. This is, to me, a dangerous one, because on the surface it's feminist, the tough tomboy who can cut it with the lads, but it's actually fairly sexist. It's not representing a world where...
No matter how long I thought, I just couldn't think of a good way to start this, so I'll just get into it. Where are all the female werewolves? Not something I noticed until recently, but of all the commonly done monsters, that must be the one with the least females. Even in the rare cases of female werewolves they never seem to be important characters, or even characters we are supposed to like. Off the top of my head the only example of a female werewolf protagonist I can remember is from the Ginger snaps movies.
I just want to say how much I LOVE the fact that Ugly Betty is in the banner for this spot. :) I'm always glad when characters who have strengths beside physical strength are included here.

For every "bad@ss" girl you name, I can find at least one damsel moment she has. I'm sick of the word damsel. it's meant to shame women who dare to be realistic and flawed, as opposed to the Buffys and Mulans who can magically do everything. Nothing wrong with a woman needing help-that's REALISTIC. saying women need to be magically tough and capable all the time is insulting. btw, why are Betty and Bones up there? they're not butt kickers of any kind.
