"I'm going to ask you all to close your eyes while I tell you the story... I want you to listen to yourselves...This is a story about a little girl walking home...Suddenly a truck races up. Two men jump out and grab her... they tie her up and they rip her clothes from her body. Her raped, beaten, broken body soaked in their urine, soaked in their semen, soaked in her blood, left to die. Can you see her? I want you to picture that little girl. Now imagine she's white."
Katniss Everdeen, by Burdge-bug. ~ I really love this. We all think of Katniss as this strong independent girl who took on the capital. But pictures like this, remind you that she's still just a girl, and she still had so much to deal with. Surviving 2 hunger games. Worrying about her family. And the boys are not helping.
Dear Ryan Gosling, my long-standing crush on you is not fading ONE BIT. I don't care if you're dating that chick from Gossip Girl (I've never seen the show, so I have no idea who she actually is). Sincerely and with affection, me
But if I can suffer through your alien ultrasound photo on Facebook or grin at your crying kids without vomiting, then you can be grateful that women like me will always be around to organize an occasional girl's night out and to keep the population in check.
