I couldn't pick just one!

Kahlan is awesome because she is kind and likes small animals and children and things, but will also fuck your shit up without a second thought in the name of truth and justice. She has kickass magical powers but can also take out armies without them, mostly by dazzling them with her hair and then pulling knives out of her boots.

Cara is awesome because she is snarky and hilarious and utterly unapologetic about who she is. She's on this amazing journey of rediscovering her humanity, and it's fantastic to watch. She also enjoys making out with other hot chicks in leather from time to time.

[personal profile] synecdochic wrote the ghost in the room, or, why modesty is a dirty fucking word. Well worth reading.

The rules of 'modesty' -- overwhelmingly enforced against women -- say that you aren't supposed to take credit for your achievements, no matter what those achivements are. That you aren't supposed to admit that you worked hard on something. That you aren't supposed to admit that you did something worthy of praise. This is, most often, made manifest by demurral: since you can't admit these things, therefore, the thing you are being complimented on must not have been an achievement, or required hard work, or been worthy of praise.


Expanding on what I posted in this week's pride thread: life's been throwing curveballs at me for a while now. I'm proud of the fact I'm getting on with things anyway, but in some ways I'm more proud of my growing ability to cut myself some slack. I'm learning to put my health before everything else, even my degree, and I think that's an achievement worth being proud of and working to cultivate further.

A lot of the culture I'm surrounded by places so much emphasis on driving yourself past your own limits in order to exceed - be better, faster, stronger, no matter what cost will be taken from you in return. I slowly, but firmly, reject this notion. Part of striving to be the best person I can be is being as well as I can be, and part of that is taking time, taking care, taking rest, and allowing myself to feel and react and process my life before moving onto the next thing.

Gwen is amazing. She is made of flowers and sunshine and happiness, and Angel Coulby's performance lights up the screen. Unlike all the other major characters in Merlin, she has no powers or status to bend things her way - instead, her superpowers are reason, compassion, and a level-headedness frequently missing in the antics of her friends. She delights in the happiness of others, has a fierce sense of justice, and she's going to be a fucking awesome queen of Camelot.



picspam, because her face always cheers me up! )

Dreamwidth users, [community profile] three_weeks_for_dw participants, I hereby issue you a CHALLENGE.

This challenge is inspired by [personal profile] arch, who wrote Martha Jones Is a Big Damn Hero: "Smith & Jones", a fantastic post about why Martha is great.

The challenge goes like this: tell us about a female character you love. Make icons, write some meta, picspam her best scenes, make a vid, write an episode recap, write fic, tell us your favourite quotes about/said by her. Be as creative as you like!

As part of Three Weeks For Dreamwidth, any contributions should be DW-only for three weeks after posting, then you're welcome to archive anywhere. I will post regular roundups of entries. Depending on level of interest, prizes may be available!

In short:

Make a post, on Dreamwidth, about a female character. Tag it 'fuck yeah she's awesome' and 'three weeks for dreamwidth'. Link to it in the comments of this post!
