American Girl was the best shit.
I’ve seen people get grossed out by the illustrations in their puberty books, but lord, how else was I supposed to properly learn? American Girl gave zero cares about conservative family feelings. They were like “girls need to know this and we’re going to market it in such a way that you buy it”
they even talk about different sexualities in their puberty book and talking about how its ok to feel feelings towards anyone and they talk about how having urges to masturbate and even acting on it is ok. important american girl facts
American Girl was the fucking bomb, man, I ate that magazine up for like five years.

When you’re in a pinch, just call for the men in tights! (We’re butch.)

When I grow up I want to be Ming-Na Wen.
She’s the voice of Mulan, as if she wasn’t amazing enough.
She broke it with her fingers. Not a fist, her fingers.
Girl is 50 years old.
FIFTY. YEARS. OLD.
fun fact: When you break things with your hands like that you have t break your fingers on purpose before so that they heal stronger. So basically this woman is so badass she broke her hands just to do this.
You asshat, you’re making it sound like she snaps her fingers in half.
Martial artists like Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee (and yes, fucking Ming-Na Wen, that beautiful badass) will build up their bone strength by repeatedly (and fairly gently) striking sand, gravel, wood and steel - this creates tons of microfractures in their bones (smaller than even a hairline fracture) so the bones will heal over again and make the bones stronger and denser with increased deposits of calcium.
This has to be done over long-ass periods of time, so the bones have time to heal, and none of the fractures expand into actual breaks.
Oh, and she’s doing precise-ass kicks in HIGH HEELS.
she kicks ass like a coursing river
with all the force of a great typhoon
OH MY GOD I’M CRYING THIS IS SO PERFECT
Anastasia cosplays give me life.
there’s a big difference between “i’m sad because a character i was emotionally invested in was killed off” and “this character’s death served no purpose, was used for shock value, and is the product of bad writing and i’m upset about that”
