The Life and Musings of a Quirky Southern Woman

What DO Women Want?

Because so many men are chiming in on what they think women want, I want to ask my friends of the female gender a three simple yes or no questions.

One - Is it important to you to be paid the same wages as a man for the same jobs? 

Two - Do you, as a woman, prefer to work jobs that historically pay less (social work, teaching, administrative positions, liberal arts jobs)? 

Three - Do you, as a woman, prefer to stay home and raise your children (if you decide to have them or plan to have them) instead of go to work?

Deep in the rainforests of the Indian state of Meghalaya, bridges are not built, they’re grown. For more than 500 years locals have guided roots and vines from the native Ficus Elastica (rubber tree) across rivers, using hollowed out trees to create root guidance systems. When the roots and vines reach the opposite bank they are allowed to take root. Some of the bridges are over 100 feet long and can support the weight of 50 people.

Can’t believe I didn’t go here

The fact that Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian Mckellen are best friends in real life makes me so happy

Finally someone gets it.

Finally someone gets it.

I love that at first she thinks it’s misogynistic, and isn’t afraid to call him on it, but then we see him do what we almost never see a male superhero do : He admits he’s scared. 

He’s not trying to belittle her, he’s not trying to tell her or even the kids that they’re not strong, 

He’s trying to protect what he loves most because he’s terrified of losing them. The big, giant robot ripping apart BUILDINGS doesn’t scare him at all compared to losing what he loves.

I love this movie for so many reasons, but this scene is one of the bigger ones. A hero movie where the males are allowed to be emotional without appearing weak? A hero movie where females are allowed to be strong without being callous or woefully 2D? A hero movie where children are allowed to explore their potential instead of being shitty sidekicks?


This scene always makes me cry.
