My name's Katie. I like using the word beautiful excessively, because I think that it accurately describes the things that fill my life with meaning. I dislike lying, sing a lot, and don't kill bugs.

You should probably also be warned that I'm slightly obsessed with Meryl Streep and k.d. lang, mostly because they're gorgeous and talented and so, so amazing.

i’m still really sad that bend it like beckham wasn’t a lesbian movie

it wasn’t? lol my bad


petition to stop using “strong female character” and instead “well-written female character” so that sexist douchebags understand that we’re insulting them for their inability to write 50% of the world’s population and just how fucking basic our expectations are

people never critique the parts of fairy tales that are worth criticizing like the beauty equals goodness trope or bad fathers never being as punished as bad mothers

they just want to spit on the idea of happy endings and how unrealistic they are because how dare we tell stories about abused children that escape their abusers and move on to happier lives. how dare we tell stories about suffering women who make the best of their circumstances and never lose their true selves. how dare we tell stories about people who love each other so much they’ll go on impossible journeys to get impossible objects to break each other’s curses. how dare we tell stories about the girl who outsmarted the cannibal or walked through the snow to save her best friend

none of those things are ~grimdark~

stories that are intended to give hope aren’t ~gritty~ enough

why defeat the dragon or befriend the dragon when you could let yourself be eaten by it

that’s more ~realistic~

"but women have sex organs on their chests! I don’t walk around with my pants off!"

I think what you mean to say is “women have secondary sex characteristics on their chests”, not sex organs

in which case let me remind you that your facial hair and enlarged adam’s apple are also secondary sex characteristics

if secondary sex characteristics bother you and you feel they should be covered up in public, please feel free to shove your entire head in a bag at any time


white people complaining when a canonically white character appears poc is like Dudley Dursley complaining when he got 37 presents instead of 38
