all the giants topple when I stomp

marianne. twenty-five. born and raised in ireland, living in oxford. still waiting for my letter from hogwarts and/or my dormant superpowers to manifest. expect lotr, adventure time, avatar: the last airbender & legend of korra, pokémon, samurai jack, game of thrones, big barda, young justice, teen titans, studio ghibli, zelda, tea, tattoos, bears, owls, and the finest cats the internet has to offer. anything else, you can just ask.

(the patriarchy is a) massive hassle - this is where I keep my writing and feminism
fuck yeah fictional maps - this is where I keep ALL OF THE MAPS

It saddens me to see girls proudly declaring they’re not like other girls – especially when it’s 41,000 girls saying it in a chorus, never recognizing the contradiction. It’s taking a form of contempt for women – even a hatred for women – and internalizing it by saying, Yes, those girls are awful, but I’m special, I’m not like that, instead of stepping back and saying, This is a lie.

The real meaning of “I’m not like the other girls” is, I think, “I’m not the media’s image of what girls should be.” Well, very very few of us are shallow, backstabbing, appearance-obsessed shopaholics without a thought in our heads beyond cute boys and cuter handbags. It’s a lie – a flat-out lie – and we need to recognize it and say so instead of accepting that judgment as true for other girls, but not for you.

“I’m not like the other girls,” Claudia Gray

Wooo! Internalised misogyny is shitty! Don’t do that! Star Wars is awesome! More Star Wars!
