when i was five
my grandmother asked me
what i wanted to be
when i grew up

i said a dragon

because dragons
don’t have to take naps
if they don’t want to

and no one ever tells a dragon
she has to be more ladylike

sometimes i still wish
i could become one

sometimes i wish
i had roaring courage
and a scale armour spine

so when men came
to conquer me
i could fill the air with fire
instead of silence

and no one would question
that my claws are not sharp enough
nor my teeth pointed enough

to protect myself
from those who scream
of imaginary monstrosities
when they come
banging at my door

the only beasts
i see here
are you

and you would not
chain me down
or spill my blood
just to say you could

you told me once
that when i grew up
i could be anything i wanted

and it was only years later
that i learned
there is a difference

between anything
and

everything

I was looking for fonts recently and fell in love with many, so I figured I’d compile all my favorites. Some of them require a tweet or Facebook post to download. All credit goes to their respective makers. 
SIMPLIFICA | OTAMA | CORADIUM | BARON NEUE | BROWNIE | LOT | CHOPLIN | SEQUI | KOMODA | CUTEPUNK | FARRAY | HIPSTELVETICA | HIGH TIDE | ANDERS | ORANIENBAUM | LANDSCAPE | ONTWERP | SALOME

Nice!

There’s no reason you can’t be both.  It’s really important for me to say over and over that femininity is not at odds with martial arts.  Women royalty have done some amazing things.  They’ve led nations, they’ve helped millions, they’ve lead armies, they’ve cared for the poor.
Yes, it’s true! Not every girl strives for the type of femininity associated with being a princess and that is good and they are whole!  And girls who do dream of being a princess? They’re whole, too.
But we don’t need to put that quality at odds with an interest in martial arts.

Feeling like Jim Carrey in the “women’s self defense” skit on “In Living Color” when teaching a new student: you attacked me wrong.

Here’s the video if anyone is curious: X

I may always reblog every gifset/imageset I see of this scene, if only to point out (over and over and over again) that Black Widow’s “very specific skillset” is not, actually, ass-kicking (as amazing as she is at that), because all the Avengers can kick ass to a pretty high degree. The Black Widow’s superpower (as it were) is emotional manipulation.

She is not interrogating this man not while tied to a chair. She is tied to a chair because that is exactly where she wants to be, because apparent vulnerability on her part is part of her interrogation. She uses the exact same trick on Loki later, when she leads him into gloating over having successfully pushed her buttons (and I have a theory that he did actually push her buttons, that she was genuinely distressed by the things he said to her because Loki is old enough and smart enough to know when someone is lying to him) and turns his gloating around on him, uses it to dig into the cracks of him, because that is what she does, and she can do it even when her target is expecting it. (Really, Loki knows that’s why she’s there. He was expecting to be physically tortured first, and for her to come be sympathetic later, if you recall, but Loki and Widow both know that wouldn’t work.)

And this is why she’s so unsettled by the Hulk. The Black Widow relies on emotional manipulation — and the Hulk, to the best of her knowledge, only has varying shades of a single emotion: anger. She doesn’t know how to manipulate a creature if it doesn’t have all the hooks to emotions like pride and lust and guilt and greed that she’s used to using.

This is a REALLY good character analysis of Natasha.

What I hate is ignorance, smallness of imagination, the eye that sees no farther than its own lashes. All things are possible. Who you are is limited only by who you think you are.
