ALICE ROOSEVELT WAS HARDCORE. “She was known as a rule-breaker in an era when women were under great pressure to conform. The American public noticed many of her exploits. She smoked cigarettes in public, swore at officials, rode in cars with men, stayed out late partying, kept a pet snake named Emily Spinach (Emily as in her spinster aunt and Spinach for its green color) in the White House, and was seen placing bets with a bookie. 

She even looks hardcore.

Best lesson from a Disney movie

This is an underrated movie

This is a grossly underrated movie.

Can I take a minute to rant? Good. Cuz I’m gonna.

I FLOVE this movie. And I HATE all the stupid hatred it gets. For a long time the buzz was “finally a black princess yay!” and now everyone is like “Fuck this movie, first black princess and she spends the whole movie a frog.”

You know what? Fuck that. Because Ariel spent a good majority of the movie not talking. Mulan spent the majority of the move pretending to be a man. Aurora and Snow White? Asleep (Hardly in the movie at all). They’re all just plot devices, not designed to take away from the traits of the women. 

And you know what else? Unlike some of the other princesses, Tiana is in control of her destiny every step of the way. When she turns into the frog does she lose hope and need rescuing? Hell naw. She busts Naveen over the head and gets the job done. She is consistently responsible and capable even after having her dreams crushed and turning into a freaking frog. 

So don’t tell me that Tiana is “less than” just because she gets turned into a frog. She’s still one of the most hardworking, badass, and capable chicks in animated history and I love her like crazy cakes. 

the end. 

Also? She’s based on a real person. A real woman who is 91 and is still cooking in her kitchen. She’s still widely respected in the culinary community, she’s fed presidents, she’s had songs written about her and her restaurants. She’s 91, and she still wakes up every morning to run things, because she still believes in hard work and good food. And if you don’t think that’s truly fantastic, then you can just fuck right off.

If men aren’t allowed to have an opinion on abortion, then they shouldn’t have to contribute to federal funding of breast cancer research.

"if i cant control a woman’s body, then i want that body to die"

(p.s. anyone can get breast cancer)

Meanwhile in Florida, the alligators have developed sign making skills.

Oh hey!  It’s Shark Valley!  I’ve been there!

It’s a path through a heavily alligator-infested swamp, with a cool little alligator viewing tower at the end.  You can take a tram, or you can bicycle.  I biked.  (The tram is still useful, though, because if there’s an alligator lying across the road, it will move out of the way of the tram.  So if you’re biking and there’s an alligator in the way, just wait for the next tram to come through.)

It’s actually a great experience; I saw gators ranging in size from little babies being carried in their mama’s mouth to giant adult males that looked like flattened tyrannosaurs.  It’s pretty safe, too—in 50 years they’ve had no fatalities and only one serious attack.

You cannot run through Shark Valley on foot.  The sign actually says “Bicycles move to the side of the road when a vehicle approaches” and has been crudely Photoshopped with the wrong font.
