if you dont have me on facebook you are probably not missing out on any posts but the comment section is important too lmao

I went to the Renaissance faire dressed as a warrior.  I had a real sword with me, too.  I was standing (in character) next to a sword-fighting ring, where kids of all ages got the chance to pick up a sword and challenge the champion.  Some woman walks by, with her little girl.  The girl starts walking towards the ring, saying she wants to fight.  But the mom pulled her away hella sharply, and was like, “That’s for boys.”  You don’t want to be a BOY, do you?”    And the girl looked around and saw me.  I think she thought I was a boy; I had my hair in a ponytail, and was wearing a hood.  So she comes up to me and asks me, “Do you think girls can be fighters, too?”  And her mom looks like she’s silently gloating.  Like she thinks I’m going to say no.  So I take off my hood, untie my hair so that it flows freely, and kneel before her.  And I’m like, “Milady, anyone can be a fighter.”  I swear, the look on that mother’s face made my day.

#FEMINIST: My #feminism is #intersectional. It’s inclusive of race, size, disability; class, and #lgbtq+ discrimination. Social equality,  fighting for consent culture,  bodypos culture, sex positive culture. Creating a world that is safe, positive, and equal for people of all genders,  races, sexualities, sizes, abilities, and classes. There is #NOHATE in my feminism; it is a discussion,  a conversation,  a process. If ever in doubt, just ask “why?” Instead of blindly arguing “no”. Keep the conversation going.

"Just 5 more minutes on Tumblr" has been the reason for my tardiness 1,000s of times in the past 6 or so years. I will never learn my lesson.
