This is my favorite news headline/photo pairing of the last while.
On Jimmy Kimmel Live, Billy Eichner showed a Holiday edition of Billy on the Street featuring Amy Poehler and we love it.
It saddens me to see girls proudly declaring they’re not like other girls – especially when it’s 41,000 girls saying it in a chorus, never recognizing the contradiction. It’s taking a form of contempt for women – even a hatred for women – and internalizing it by saying, Yes, those girls are awful, but I’m special, I’m not like that, instead of stepping back and saying, This is a lie.
The real meaning of “I’m not like the other girls” is, I think, “I’m not the media’s image of what girls should be.” Well, very, very few of us are. Pop culture wants to tell us that we’re all shallow, backstabbing, appearance-obsessed shopaholics without a thought in our heads beyond cute boys and cuter handbags. It’s a lie – a flat-out lie – and we need to recognize it and say so instead of accepting that judgment as true for other girls, but not for you.
im sorry rosie youve been a good friend
I don’t know why I laughed so hard.
George R.R. Martin is ruthless - every death in the Game of Thrones series is tabbed
Good morning. This is a Rube Goldberg machine made out of toys, featuring three girls age 6-8, one of whom is rapping a rewritten “Girls” by the Beastie Boys.
It’s called The Princess Machine. The social Princess Machine flattens important, heroic women and makes them two-dimensional and unimportant. This Princess Machine is made out of princesses (among other things) and shows that girls are so much more than that — they can build, invent, and create, and they can do it with traditional femininity or without. It’s their choice.
Your move, patriarchy.
You think you know what we want, girls.
Pink and pretty it’s girls.
Just like the 50’s it’s girls.
You like to buy us pink toys
and everything else is for boys
and you can always get us dolls
and we’ll grow up like them… false.
It’s time to change.
We deserve to see a range.
'Cause all our toys look just the same
and we would like to use our brains.
We are all more than princess maids.
Girls to build the spaceship,
Girls to code the new app,
Girls to grow up knowing
they can engineer that.
That’s all we really need is Girls.
To bring us up to speed it’s Girls.
Our opportunity is Girls.
Don’t underestimate Girls.
This boy dressed up as Harry Potter and went around Penn Station looking for Platform 9 3/4.
Oh my god. This is incredible.
