Given that Coto exudes pure joy all the time (except for when she is crying heartbreakingly), I was surprised by the only moderate levels of joy in this song … I’m thinking she might not love Goran Nasai, or possibly just the wig XD

10k Names, Printed, in Cardboard Boxes

calliowong:

Hey, all. So I’m asking you all to band together like you did 2 years ago, in our original push for fair trans woman acceptance policies. 

Please. 

Please push this to 10k signatures—share this with your friends, family, co-workers, anyone you think would care to sign. I would like to see what happens when Smith College is presented with 10,000 printed signatory names in cardboard boxes, all asking them for fair trans woman policies at Smith. You know, like Mt. Holyoke and Mills have already done.

Steve Rogers did, in fact, realize that something was off when he saw the outline of the woman’s odd bra (a push-up bra, he would later learn), but being an officer and a gentleman, he said that it was the game that gave the future away.

Also her hairstyle is still basically modern even though there’s a minimal effort at a 1940s hairstyle. A popular look in the 2010s is for each curl to be distinct and separate, like this woman’s, but for this style in the ’40s the curls would have been brushed through to create a different effect. This is what it looked like in the 40s:

And how Peggy Carter did this style, more or less accurately:

And with SHIELD lady, even her makeup doesn’t really look 40s. Lipstick is too dark, for one, I think. Like … they really didn’t even try. How did they have enough time to make an entire fake room, but not to dress up a fake agent accurately?

My life became so much better once I stopped angsting about gender norms. Now I can enjoy everyone looking good in red lipstick and lingerie and tuxedos and waistcoats (although not usually at the same time). AND I don’t have to feel bad that I’m not living up to some imaginary standard of what women “should” be like.

11, 15, 18, 29, 30

I doubled up on 11, 18, and 29, but for the others:

15: Influential books: Definitely Animorphs, I guess The Andalite Chronicles if I had to pick one. Probably Nineteen Eighty-Four, Brave New World, and Dracula, all of which I read repeatedly in classic “after bedtime with a flashlight” fashion when I was a kid. And I guess … Tracks by Louise Erdrich, one of my recent faves.

30: Favorite quote: “I believe in the dream of the Revolution!” Pfft, everyone who knows me on Twitter is tired of this one. XD
