*oooold post!*

Hey, I remember this! It was a PSA on saving water that went out during S1, possibly just before the B9 aired? I have a feeling Kurt’s Earth Day hemp trench coat was connected somehow…

They’re both really attractive in this <3

The absence of women in history is man made.

How petty

just look at babe ruth’s face tho
so confused
so lost
i love it

pure hater shit

Jackie Mitchell…a bad ass lady I had never heard of. 

From her Wikipedia page: “Seventeen-year-old Jackie Mitchell, brought in to pitch in the first inning after the starting pitcher had given up a double and a single, faced Babe Ruth. After taking a ball, Ruth swung and missed at the next two pitches. Mitchell’s fourth pitch to Ruth was a called third strike. Babe Ruth glared and verbally abused the umpire before being led away by his teammates to sit to wait for another batting turn. The crowd roared for Jackie. Babe Ruth was quoted in a Chattanooga newspaper as having said:

"I don’t know what’s going to happen if they begin to let women in baseball. Of course, they will never make good. Why? Because they are too delicate. It would kill them to play ball every day."

Next up was the Iron Horse Lou Gehrig, who swung through the first three pitches to strike out. Jackie Mitchell became famous for striking out two of the greatest baseball players in history.
A few days after Mitchell struck out Ruth and Gehrig, baseball commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis voided her contract and declared women unfit to play baseball as the game was “too strenuous.”[5][10] Mitchell continued to play professionally,barnstorming with the House of David, a men’s team famous for their very long hair and long beards.[11] While travelling with the House of David team, she would sometimes wear a fake beard for publicity.”
TL;DR: teenage girl strikes out two of the greatest baseball players ever, teenage girl gets her contract voided, teenage girl plays baseball wearing fake beard

These guys were so fucking injured by a teenage girl’s awesomeness that they literally threw a hissyfit and hung up a sign that said “NO GIRLS.”
They gave up.
They couldn’t handle it.
Losers. 
Teenage girls are amazing.

#remember how this movie took female stereotypes and crushed them into a million pieces

casual reminder that Elle Woods scored a 179 on the LSAT, which is one point shy of a perfect score.

Casual reminder that Whatshisface here had family connections and was a legacy and shit, whereas Elle Woods came out of nowhere.

casual reminder that Elle Woods actually had an amazing background in real life issues that people dismissed as unimportant but managed to not only learn the law, but learned how to apply the law.

Casual reminder that Elle Woods used her lawyer skills to save a woman from an abusive relationship and also save another woman from trumped up murder charges and basically what I’m saying is you go, girl, go get ‘em Elle Woods, thank you for this movie.

what’s fantastic about this movie is that it’s not that fucked up brand of feminism where the girls who arent like other girls and sip tea and read hemingway look down on the blonde party sluts. the message of the movie is like, you can be blonde and attractive AND enjoy stuff like shopping and partying and you can still be smart and kick ass!!!

I am a big musical apologist. Vivian still has a very important moment in the musical (she plays the Professor Stromwell role of turning Elle back - you’re my new muse, you’ve got the best freaking shoes), and I like that the musical bigged up Emmette’s role so there’s some reason for us to care about Elle caring about him. I don’t feel there isn’t a reason for her to care about Vivienne or Paulette any more - but now we also have a good romantic relationship. And Elle proposes to him, rather than the other way around. A token gesture, perhaps, but one that counts when we talk about her getting/losing her agency. 

Also - as good as Elle figuring out her journey without Emmette is (and it is good), the movie doesn’t have a moment like this: 

VIVENNE. Run home, Elle, and change out of your skank costume.

ELLE.  (After taking a moment to collect herself.)  Oh, is THAT what you see, Vivienne?  How unfortunate.  (ELLE whips out glasses and puts them on.)  Because I am Gloria Steinem undercover, circa 1963, researching for her feminist manifesto ‘I Was a Playboy Bunny.’  Are you calling Gloria Steinem a skank?

(ENID is furious, like a mad dog.)

ENID.  Who’s calling Gloria Steinem a skank?

ELLE.  (Points to Vivienne.)  She is!

In conclusion - both are good. 

I liked the musical fine. And I bow to your superior knowledge of it. :p

I disagree that Emmett/Elle needed to be an A-plot for us to care about the romance. One of the cool things about the film is that the romance wasn’t a big plotline. It was just a sweet low-stakes low-drama relationship, in contrast to life-ruining ultra-drama Elle/Warner. The point of the Warner thing is that if someone as great as Elle has to work that hard and overhaul her life just to make Warner think she’s good enough, he’s the problem, not her, and she shouldn’t be bothering with him. So Emmett/Elle in comparison is easy and effortless because he already likes her for who she is. If it had been one of the main plots, there would have been drama and conflict to be resolved - like we get with Elle/Vivian in the movie - but the lack of conflict was, imo, part of the point of the pairing.

I appreciate that Vivian in the musical gets the Professor Stromwell role… but this happens at the expense of cutting out Professor Stromwell. So it’s still a reduction in awesome ladyness.

Tldr the musical thought that it was more important for a romance to be an A plot than a female friendship which makes me a little cranky, no matter how much I liked the chip on her shoulder song.
