jokes about Dylan Sprouse’s nudes make me uncomfortable b/c women get their lives and careers ruined or tainted if something like this comes out but dylan gets commended for “handling it well”
Give me one actual example of a woman’s life getting ruined due to leaked nude photos. I’m waiting.
that took about 3 seconds to find on google
He likes playing to tough crowds “When we first arrived in America we’d play a small venue in Florida and some hick would be shouting, ‘Come on, man! What is this?’ But I love those sorts of shows where you have to try and convince people. You have to become ten times more animated and really rattle everyone’s cage.” – Alex Turner
This fall, New York City becomes the first city in the nation to tackle the issue of girls’ self-esteem and body image. Recognizing that girls as young as 6 and 7 are struggling with body image and self-esteem, (over 80% of 10-year-old girls are afraid of being fat and by middle school, 40-70% of girls are dissatisfied with two or more parts of their body), New York City is launching a self-esteem initiative to help girls believe their value comes from their character, skills, and attributes – not appearance.
HOLY SHIT DISABILITY REPRESENTATION IN A MAINSTREAM BODY ACCEPTANCE CAMPAIGN

THESE ARE THE GREATEST ADS EVER
Theres also something else I love about this movie. At the end when she realises he’s alive. They don’t kiss. Every other movie I’ve seen where theres a boy and a girl and sci fi aliens or monsters, they fall in love. Even if they started out as friends. And in Pacific Rim. Theres still only this friendship or brother/sister relationship. I don’t understand why these feminists wouldn’t see this. (via songofages)
Mako Mori was the most progressive female character of any film i’ve seen this year. Hands down, the Bechdel test was not an issue here, the fact that her character arc was independent from that of the male characters and that she was never just a love interest is far more important than having another female character for a 30 second conversation.
If anyone says that they boycotted it because she’s not feminist then it’s utter bullshit. Mako Mori is a fantastic role model for any girl because she is able to defend herself, knows which battles to fight, believes in respecting others and demanding respect in return and is comfortable with being emotionally vulnerable when given the chance.
