every year after you turn 17 you get further away from being the age of the dancing queen and that’s my least favorite thing about growing up
ah but when you turn 34 you’re two dancing queens and thus having twice the time of your life. and at 51 you become the dancing triumvirate and three golden crowns are forged in your honor
lots to look forward to
One of the reasons atla was a great show was because of the bonding/friendship/family times. I really liked that. uvu
(Apologies for the exaggerated crying Aang in the first gif. This was an unplanned thing were the rest just followed. I know Aang doesn’t cry like that haha.
You are not a burden.
You are not a bother.
You enhance the lives of others.
People smile, not groan, when you text them.
Ok this one thing has been annoying the hell out of me. This new generation of Feminists that when my dad was younger, feminists were nothing like today’s radical feminism. This isn’t women empowerment this is just as bad as the “Sexism” they think they…
"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….
First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”
But here is what I think you should know.
You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.
You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.
You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).
You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.
In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.
In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”❞

When having an argument with a self-entitled “egalitarian” (or whatever kids are calling themselves these days) over gender inequalities, ask them if they would claim not to see differences between races to the face of an activist for African American rights.
It should be then easy to spot the misogynistic pig or the ignorant idealist.
