It's a Beautiful Ride

Hi! College-age Catholic feminist here (she/her pronouns, please). I post things that make me cry, or laugh, or affect me in some way. I have been reliably informed that I am in fact Gina Torres. You'll find general nerdery on this blog, with an emphasis on dead French revolutionaries. Otherwise, my fandoms range from Firefly to Hart of Dixie with very little rhyme or reason. I tag 'elyssa is catholic' for faith talk if you're not into that. Away from keyboard stuff is 'elyssa college blogs'. I write and draw stuff sometimes as well.

Welcome, anyway--I hope you stay awhile!

So I need to just tell this story because it’s something the masses need to know:

One time at Les Mis Broadway Chris McCarrell delivered his “pretty girls” solo during “Drink with Me,” and as soon as he finished singing he laughed drunkenly and proceeded to laugh so hard he toppled over backwards and three people behind him seized him in a desparate attempt to keep his ass from hitting the floor

So apparently feminism is a hate movement. I’m sorry I don’t remember any feminists going on any shooting sprees because they were rejected by men or sending death and rape threats to blogger who pointed out sexism in video games.

Everyone who suffers from social anxiety needs a friend who will

  1. help them order food when it’s too scary
  2. walk with them through crowded places
  3. help them laugh it off when they make a mistake
  4. not get tired of answering “no, you’re not annoying, silly goose! You’re adorable and I love you” no matter how many times it’s needed

and if you’re that friend, bless u for being fab <3

People think feminism means that there’s a group of women somewhere that want to take trousers with pockets away from men and give them to women, and give men trousers with fake pockets, while in reality feminism is the general idea that everyone should have trousers with pockets, because pockets are awesome.

“We dressed up as the book Madeline, with six people dressed up as her and me as Ms. Clavel, their teacher. One of the Madelines, however, was the truly special one…the one with the beard, that is. Our experience was hysterical—I’d walk all the girls (and one guy) down the street in two straight lines. Guys would be walking the other way, whistling or hollering at all the pretty ladies. Then, as they got to the back of the line, they’d see my friend Brennan, then they’d see me, and I could tell that they were suddenly wondering if ALL the Madelines were men.”

the last sentence

lmao what

There will never be a time when I don’t reblog this because it is my fave.

There’s some ships you ship… that have massive amounts of shippers right along with you. Then there’s the ships… those ships you have that are near and dear to your heart where you’re in a fucking canoe with like… four other people.

marvel studios is going through a moment where they could literally pick any character and make a successful movie if they wanted to. for fucks sake they made one about a team that not even most marvel comics fans really cared about, when no one was asking for a movie about them, a team that features a talking tree and a talking raccoon, and it had the fucking biggest box office of the year so far. stop giving me those weak ass excuses for the lack of female led movies
