There’s a Katniss barbie. There’s a Divergent barbie. But superheroes are coded male, and little boys can’t play with female dolls (and really, what is this if not a fucking Iron Man Ken doll) because then they might grow up thinking that women are human beings that do stuff.
If you take a young man and woman and they both tell a stranger that they work in the same restaurant, it’s very likely that they will assume that the woman is the waitress, and the young man a cook.
But I thought a woman’s place was in the kitchen? Not when she’s being paid for it. I can’t believe it took me this long to realize the implication of this. A woman’s place is one of servitude.

Middle sister sent me this text this morning and it’s easily the wildest after party story I’ve heard all week.
i accidentally spilled monster energy drink in my fish bowl and now my goldfish won’t stop saying “bro” and keeps flexing it’s fins
my drunken father came home, pointed at my socks and said ‘what the fuck are those’
if you’re a grown ass man and you look at a sixteen year old girl as anything but a child the problem is with you, not with what she’s wearing
can we just take a moment to imagine little cute nine-year-old hermione reading matilda
and peering into this book about a smart, bookish girl who could move things with her mind
and then can you imagine her concentrating very hard on the books on the bookshelf and slowly, slowly, getting them to move
THIS IS MY FAVORITE HEADCANON OF ALL THE HEADCANONS EVER
"Now a new law before [Canadian] Parliament would allow the government to review and revoke the Indian status of those who’ve already been approved. The Bill, C-25, would also bar anyone from suing the government for the way an application was handled."
