Hi there, I'm Amanda - Insufferable Know-It-All, feminist and ally, democratic socialist, atheist+, everlasting GOP-stopper, vegetarian, math and science enthusiast, and actress. I have a bit of a dark sense of humor and I can be really sarcastic, but I'm actually just a big softy, don't worry. You just have to wade your way through these snark-infested waters. (INTJ.)

I (rarely) make low-quality YouTube videos on feminism and science and atheism and stuff.


I'm a bit like Stargirl, but sassier and sort of obnoxious.



I put on my magical feminist party hat and never took it off.

Leslie Knope is my patronus.

“So, if men are what make up most of Hollywood writers then that is evidence of sexism or patriarchy? If I can show you that most feminist are female does that show that feminism is sexist? I don't think that you have an argument. You only have just random datums. May i ask how was your childhood? I had a shit childhood experience. I was abused by a FEMALE babysitter and told my mother about this and nothing came about it. What does feminism have to offer men and boys? I would guess nothing.”

Where do I even get started with this convoluted mess? Wow wow wow. You are confusing so many things here.

But since you seem to need some extra help understanding semi-complex concepts, I’ll give it a shot and try to pick through the litterbox of your mind.  Under a cut for length.

Do you ever have a problem where you just don’t know how to reply to an argument, not because you don’t know the answer, but you just don’t know where to begin? Like, the foundation of knowledge you’d need to impart to this person before you could even begin to drag them out of their sinkhole of ignorance would cost thousands of dollars if it were coming from a university?

Elle Woods was hollering back before the movement. This is why i love this movie. It’s so progressive. Elle is a femme feminist who comes by it the hard way. She doesn’t change for the bookish people, the elitists, or for the feminists. She just does what she needs to do, and what she wants, even when at first it was chasing a boy. Then the movie drops the romance. IT DROPS THE ROMANCE. chick flicks don’t do that. Emmett asking her out is a footnote at the very end. And this whole time, she is classy, and lady like, and has pride in herself and her work. She’ll go to a costume party as a playboy bunny, but like hell will she sleep with her professor for an internship. Elle is my feminist role model

I remember listening to my DAD defend Legally Blonde. An uncle was saying “Oh look, it’s that stupid movie again.” as he flipped through the channels. My dad responded with “Oh yeah, that movie where the blonde girl with great grades works really hard to get into pre-law, studies hard and proves herself to her peers and bosses while maintaining her integrity and not sleeping with her boss? What a terrible message to send girls.”

Also, I love this movie because Reese Witherspoon. 

teiledesganzen:

And don’t forget that she has serious female friends and wins the case by way of her specialist knowledge of so-called “feminine things” that no one else takes seriously enough to even bother with.

The movie also passes the Bechdel test.

bookshop:

LET’S NOT FORGET that even though it starts with a situation where two girls are rivals for the same guy, they BOTH choose to ignore the social codes (and hollywood bylaws) that tell them they should be cat-fighting and trying to one-up each other, and instead they realize that they make good working partners and better friends and screw rivalry, AND ALSO HAVE EACH OTHER’S BACKS RE: WORKPLACE SEXUAL HARASSMENT. And that it portrays sororities as places where women can learn to work together and respect each other and help each other out, which sets the stage for the way Elle treats everyone she meets for the rest of the movie. OH AND IT HAS A FAT SIDE CHARACTER WHO OVERCOMES EMOTIONAL ABUSE, IS NEVER FAT-SHAMED OR USED AS THE BRUNT OF A FAT JOKE, AND LANDS THE HOTTEST MAN IN THE ENTIRE FILM. 

wildwildeyes:

Also, Elle still stays true to herself in a professional setting. Even when it’s tough for her, she always keeps being her bubbly, peppy self. She doesn’t let what others say about her stop her from being a kickass lawyer that also is unafraid to express herself how she wants to.
