okay kida doesnt get enough love around here so here’s the lowdown on my fav disney princess
- she’s roughly 8,500 years old, but she appears about 28
- she’s a WARRIOR PRINCESS who becomes a WARRIOR QUEEN
- she watched her mother die when she was a toddler
- shes the only (i repeat ONLY) disney princess to become queen
- she didnt become queen from marriage, the crown was passed on to her after her father died
- the reason she is a warrior princess is because the voice actess (cree summer) intimidated the creators
- she was the first original disney princess, not taken from an adaption or legend
shes basically a bad ass chick who had an entire civilization’s survival on her shoulders and doesnt get the credit she deserves
that’s why she’s not in the Disney Princess lineup.
Bitch be a motherfucking QUEEN.
I love this image so much.
I’ve seen some women who are offended by this and say it’s ridiculous that her cleavage is showing and things of that sort.
Personally, I think it’s great.
Why should we have an image of a women with her hair tied up and flexing her muscles like she’s a man? (not that that isn’t great too!) In a way it suggests that when our hair is down, our breasts are visible and we wear (GASP) lipstick, we’re somehow lesser than men? We can do it! We can be feminine and successful.
You see what I’m saying here, ladies?
You don’t have to lose your femininity. Being feminine is great. Being masculine is great. Strength is not limited to one way of being.
oh my fucking god, this again
Have you even looked at the actual Rosie the Riveter poster lately?
She’s ALREADY WEARING LIPSTICK. AND MASCARA. AND BLUSH. Her eyebrows have been PENCILED AND TWEEZED. And underneath her work bandana? HER HAIR HAS BEEN CURLED. Rosie the Riveter is a beautiful woman. This image in no way implies that wearing feminine apparel (like cosmetics) is a negative thing.
The reason that she has her hair up and her shirt buttoned and is flexing her arms has nothing to do with prudery, or with trying to be “masculine” (as if shows of physical strength are unique to one gender). It has to do with the information at the bottom of the poster: Rosie is involved in war production. That means doing hard physical labor in a 1940s factory, where large heavy machinery can easily snag a loose lock of hair, or a bit of jewelry, or an undone button. “Makeover” Rosie would not be able to do the real Rosie’s job without serious risk of injury to herself or the people around her. In that sense, the new poster is implying that no, women are NOT capable of doing the same work as men, because they are too weak/vain/self-absorbed/whatever. The old poster is saying that, while still being feminine, women are just as capable of doing the same work as men.
Also? The new and “improved” Rosie was specifically drawn to be ANTI-FEMINIST. “[William Murai] created this image for the Brazilian Alfa Magazine to accompany an article about the End of Feminism. 'The idea was to remake the famous feminism symbol “Rosie the Riveter” [into] a lady who is giving up on her duties and trying to look sexy again.’” (emphasis mine)
Giving up her duties and trying to look sexy? For whom, exactly? According to the artist (and the patriarchy), men. In other words, quit your job, look hot, find a man, gb2 the kitchen, and make me a sandwich, bitch. Also known as THE SAME TIRED-ASS SHIT WOMEN HEAR EVERY. FUCKING. DAY.
The new poster is not “progress.” It is not about women being “feminine and successful.” It’s about the exact opposite: women being reduced to their appearance and their sex appeal according to the standards imposed by the male gaze. She is pretty, but that’s all she is, because that’s all women are supposed to be. The real Rosie (you know, the feminist icon?) is beautiful, and feminine, and strong enough to do the work necessary to keep her country safe, just the same as any man. Her worth is not in her appeal as a decorative object, but in the product of her labor and her own awareness of her abilities.
Rosie the Riveter. Accept NO substitutes.

but people who get all ‘think of the children!’ when you mention putting queer characters in kids shows piss me off so much
because I am thinking of the children
the queer children who are living in a world that tells them they are wrong at every turn, that denies their existence and refuses to allow them a happy ending
I’m thinking of those children
Chino Otsuka : Imagine Finding Me
Chino Otsuka uses photography and video to explore the fluid relationship between the memory, time and photography. At age 10 she moved from Japan to the United Kingdom to attend school. Her experience of becoming familiar with a new place, a different language and new customs while she was developing her adolescent identity has profoundly shaped her work in photography, video and writing. Her series Imagine Finding Me consists of double self-portraits, with images of her present self beside her past self in various places she has visited. As Otsuka says: “The digital process becomes a tool, almost like a time machine, as I’m embarking on the journey to where I once belonged and at the same time becoming a tourist in my own history.” - via AGO
I am unexpectedly weepy looking at this.
gosh that’s… moving in a really gentle kind of “mother your inner child” way…
I got this original plan from this pinterest post, but disliked the sexy lady on the side judging me with her abs. So instead I replaced it with a calender so you can mark off each day!
My doctors hope that building more muscle tone will help me manage my heart condition, so I’m determined to do this. But considering I haven’t exercised in like, years, I feel like death after the first day.
You never realize how many 90 jumping jacks are til you hit like 45 and start to feel your stomach in your throat…
Anyways, it’s easily printable and I wish all those that wish to try to get healthier like me all the luck in the world.
Okay, here’s the thing - DO NOT push yourself to get to some arbitrary number that is listed in a workout plan. That way lies major health issues and injuries.
A good guide is to do as many as you feel like you can do comfortably (i.e you are tired but not ‘omg I am going to die’ exhausted) and then maybe do 1-5 more, depending on how difficult you find the action. (The more difficult, the fewer you want to try to do - again, trying to do things while your muscles are all exhausted is how you sprain and strain things because your form goes all to crap. So you want to push yourself WITHOUT your form falling apart.)
Then take the number that you managed and use THAT to set your next goal. You can have the number stated on the plan as your ultimate goal, but you might need some time to get there.
Also, this plan fails in the sense that your body actually needs recovery time in order to build the muscles and repair the damage you’re doing with exercising. Either take every other day off (to let your body rest and recover) or don’t do whole body every day - do legs/lower body one day, and upper body/arms the next. So while you’re working your lower body your upper body gets to rest, and vice versa.
Even the best athletes in the world have rest time built in to their plans, it’s just that necessary.
You’re very correct. I may have to take a second look at this plan and make sure it doesn’t do more harm than good.
