Dr. Caroline Heldman breaks it down
Amazing video. Should be required viewing for high school students. I may make it required viewing for my future college students.
"The Fighting Fucktoy" is my new favourite phrase.

This documentary was awesome and powerful definitely recommend that you guys watch it!
To those who argue against the idea that physically strong characters are not necessarily empowered characters, I highly recommend watching Miss Representation. Also for TONS of other reasons (this is only one topic covered). Basically, watch Miss Representation.
It’s also available on netflix streaming!!

Ellen Page Comes Out
“I’m here today because I am gay. And because… maybe I can make a difference. To help others have an easier and more hopeful time. Regardless, for me, I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility. I also do it selﬁshly, because I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission. I suffered for years because I was scared to be out. My spirit suffered, my mental health suffered and my relationships suffered. And I’m standing here today, with all of you, on the other side of all that pain. I am young, yes, but what I have learned is that love, the beauty of it, the joy of it and yes, even the pain of it, is the most incredible gift to give and to receive as a human being. And we deserve to experience love fully, equally, without shame and without compromise.”
Thank you, dear stranger!
Waiting for the bus this morning. Might as well have been climbing a mountain >.<
Ice started forming on my eyelashes, hair, hat, and scarf from the condensation of my breath.
I feel like this issue needs to be addressed. If people stop buying music and start to ONLY download, the music industry will be shot to hell. This could mean very limited music because musicians can’t afford to make a record. I ALWAYS buy my music, whether it’s off iTunes, vinyl records, amazon, just anyway I can show the artist appreciation for their beautiful work.
