Elle Woods was hollering back before the movement. This is why i love this movie. It’s so progressive. Elle is a femme feminist who comes by it the hard way. She doesn’t change for the bookish people, the elitists, or for the feminists. She just does what she needs to do, and what she wants, even when at first it was chasing a boy. Then the movie drops the romance. IT DROPS THE ROMANCE. chick flicks don’t do that. Emmett asking her out is a footnote at the very end. And this whole time, she is classy, and lady like, and has pride in herself and her work. She’ll go to a costume party as a playboy bunny, but like hell will she sleep with her professor for an internship. Elle is my feminist role model

Same.

Elle Woods 4ever

I remember listening to my DAD defend Legally Blonde. An uncle was saying “Oh look, it’s that stupid movie again.” as he flipped through the channels. My dad responded with “Oh yeah, that movie where the blonde girl with great grades works really hard to get into pre-law, studies hard and proves herself to her peers and bosses while maintaining her integrity and not sleeping with her boss? What a terrible message to send girls.”

Also, I love this movie because Reese Witherspoon. 

And don’t forget that she has serious female friends and wins the case by way of her specialist knowledge of so-called “feminine things” that no one else takes seriously enough to even bother with.

The movie also passes the Bechdel test.

LET’S NOT FORGET that even though it starts with a situation where two girls are rivals for the same guy, they BOTH choose to ignore the social codes (and hollywood bylaws) that tell them they should be cat-fighting and trying to one-up each other, and instead they realize that they make good working partners and better friends and screw rivalry, AND ALSO HAVE EACH OTHER’S BACKS RE: WORKPLACE SEXUAL HARASSMENT. And that it portrays sororities as places where women can learn to work together and respect each other and help each other out, which sets the stage for the way Elle treats everyone she meets for the rest of the movie. OH AND IT HAS A FAT SIDE CHARACTER WHO OVERCOMES EMOTIONAL ABUSE, IS NEVER FAT-SHAMED OR USED AS THE BRUNT OF A FAT JOKE, AND LANDS THE HOTTEST MAN IN THE ENTIRE FILM.

Know thou first,

I loved the maid I married; never man

Sigh’d truer breath; but that I see thee here,

Thou noble thing! more dances my rapt heart

Than when I first my wedded mistress saw

Bestride my threshold.

{Coriolanus act IV Scene V}

I think my favourite part about this scene is how Caius just spends the whole thing expecting to be horribly murdered, and instead just gets snogged.

Still pretty proud of my response to this.

I was totally down with the change over already, but not knowing the backstory, this just convinced me so hard that Captain America needs to be a minority right now. 
Before, Marvel said, “This is what you want? Well fuck you, he isn’t going to help you.” 
Now Marvel is saying, “This is who you’re throwing under the bus? Who you’re tossing into prison like he doesn’t mean anything? Who you demonize regularly? Well fuck you, he’s going to save you anyway.”
And as far as the Thor thing, that whole, “If he be worthy part,” yeah, they’re giving the finger to the patriarchy right there saying, “Hey, women are worthy too.”
If these two things were spaced out, I might believe that they were just marketing ploy, but they come so close together at a time where this message is necessary, I can’t help but think that there are people at Marvel who get it and are going with it. 
I mean, if they were willing to fight Hitler during WWII, why not be willing to fight some of the evils of today?

imfemlocked said: i would love some fic recs! have you read any good s3 fix-it fics?

youcantsaymylastname:

mildredandbobbin:

bookaddled:

Oh yes. *Goes and looks at AO3 bookmarks*

Season 3 fix-it fics

  • One of my favourites has to be The Adventures of a Single Girl in London by earlgreytea68​ (I seriously love her). Janine comes back after finding Sussex boring and moves in with Sherlock. She tries to get Sherlock to find her the perfect man whilst she tries to mend his broken heart. It is hilarious, lighthearted, and perfect.
  • On the Other Side by mildredandbobbin​ is incredibly angsty, and will hurt your heart a little bit, but eventually everything is mended and happy. She uses a lot of tumblr theories and headcanons, so it’s interesting to see what it would look like if Tumblr wrote the next season.
  • Obviously, this list is not complete without Swan Song by our very own, astudyinrose. It’s not so much a fix-it fic as it’s a look at an alternate universe of what might have happened if events had happened slightly differently- namely, if Tessa hadn’t shown up that night. Sherlock is an insecure, completely in love gay baby in this fic, and it’s glorious. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, it’s perfect. (And yes, I am biased, because I’m a beta on it, but I don’t care. I love it.)
  • A Second Chance by kipli has Sherlock time-travel back to Angelo’s that first night together after he open the matchbox. So it’s season 3 Sherlock with season 1 John. 
  • Two fix-it one shots by earlgreytea68: Trick Questions is also an alternate ending to the stag night in TSOT, and Operation Baby Girl Watson follows that idea that Sherlock and John have a plan and explains why John went back to Mary at Christmas.

Fics where Sherlock is a gay baby hopelessly in love with John:

  • John Watson’s Twelve Days of Christmas, Working on the Edges, The Bang and the Clatter, and Letters, all by earlgreytea68. She is absolutely fantastic at writing a Sherlock that is vulnerable and absolutely, hopelessly in love with John. 
  • All the Best and Brightest Creatures by wordstrings. In this AU, someone actually listens to young Sherlock and Moriarty is put in jail for the murder of Carl Powers. Sherlock meets John a different way, but he falls absolutely in love with pretty much instantly. This is still a WIP, but you will get lots and lots and gay baby Sherlock in love.
  • Nothing to Make a Song About by emmagrant01 shows what happens if John hadn’t forgiven Sherlock when he came back from the dead. Ten years later, John is divorced from Mary and back in London, and Sherlock does everything he can think of to get back with John, since he has been pining for John all that time.
  • The Progress of Sherlock Holmes by ivyblossom is told from Sherlock’s POV in first person, and is all about how he is head over heels in love with John.
  • there are many, many more fics I could rec you that have a super in-love Sherlock, but these at least have some Pining!Sherlock in them as well

And a rec just for you, bc I thought of you whilst I was reading it:

(I’m publishing this just in case anyone else wants these fic recs)

Two recs all at once, and among such amazing company. Thank you so much! And I have a couple here I need to read.

I trust her recs. They rock.

Can confirm that when Tom Hiddleston looks you in the eye and quotes Shakespeare, your stomach drops out of your butt

i can attest to this.  same thing happens when some of that shower water? actually gets on you when he violently shakes it off like a sheepdog in a rainstorm.  

The Donmar is tiny, yo.
