“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, & it may be necessary from time to time to give a stupid or misinformed beholder a black eye.” -Miss Piggy
This is a story about women- tons of women. Every personality type you can imagine. Young women, old women, queer women, straight women, ditzy women, brainy women. This is story about the bond of friendship between these women and how they are the most powerful people in the universe.
Sailor Moon is classic superhero stuff- eldritch villians, secret identity drama, the power of friendship, face-melting horror, epic battles- but it’s set in a world where teenage girls are the greatest heroes." In defense of Sailor Moon by Comic Book Girl. (via aisakataiga-)
We don’t owe anyone an explanation when it comes the choices we make about appearance. Yet here we are, dieting and sweating and cutting and spritzing and waxing and sucking and shooting and plucking, hoping to look less like ourselves and more like Halle Berry or Angelina Jolie or Anna Kournikova, thinking our problems will be solved. I’ll never understand why some men fear fat and strength and pixie cuts; it has nothing to do with them. Wait–maybe that’s exactly the problem.
I appreciate beauty. I love feeling beautiful. And there are many ways for me to do that. Trust me, Sephora has no better customer. I do my hair, put on makeup, wear sexy clothes, show off my rack and my booty. Whether I’m a size 8 or a size 18 doesn’t matter. It’s not beauty that’s the problem; it’s our limited definition of beauty that’s a problem." Wendy Shaker, The Body Politic (via thatswhatshesaidquotes)
