We go forward.
This is too deep to comprehend.
Anybody else remember this episode? In it, a female villain called Femme Fatale is stealing millions of dollars in Susan B. Anthony coins. Naturally, the Powerpuff Girls go to stop her. She then convinces them that men are all horrible because female superheroes aren’t as well known as male superheroes, even asking Blossom to name some to where her only answer is Wonder Woman.
They start acting bitter, refusing to do chores when the Professor asks and even telling the Mayor to save the town himself. Ms. Bellum and Ms. Keane talk to the girls and basically explain that being mean to guys won’t do anything and that isn’t the kind of message feminists should put out.
They proceed to beat up Femme Fatale while giving her a history lesson about Susan B. Anthony, the story where she voted and was found guilty because women couldn’t vote back then, but when the judge wanted to let her off easily because she was a woman, she forced them to take her to jail. The girls handle her and the lesson is that misandry will not stop misogny and we all should just respect each other.
And it fell on Tumblr’s deaf ears.
has been stressful. I didn’t realize how many times I use google in a given day. With a toddler and a 2 month old you have a lot of questions… like “Is that a normal color for poop?” or “Why has my son spent the past twenty minutes banging his head on the couch?” Maybe I should just break down and get a smartphone….
in other news,
New apartment is great. Classes start in less than a week and I’m super excited. Now I just need to finish reading the 50 pages of Cardiopulmonary Anatomy and Physiology that Patrick hasn’t been giving me the mommy time to get through all week.
New Doctor Who tomorrow… I’m hopeful, but also ready for Moffat to disappoint again.
