Little Girls Are Better At Designing Superheroes Than You is a project where superheroes are drawn based on the costumes of young girls.

This is Shooting Star! With her corkscrew pigtails and her Chucks of justice, she flits through the night shooting stars to turn darkness into light. 

Drawn by yours truly,
Alex Law
;)

LOVE.

Licia Ronzulli, member of the European Parliament, has been taking her daughter Vittoria to the Parliament sessions for two years now.

Every time this is on my dash, it’s an automatic reblog.

Life. There’s always a way to make it work.

This woman runs PARLIAMENT with a baby in her lap and she’s CLEARLY doing an outstanding job because she’s still there being a total boss two years later, baby still in her lap.

"A baby will destroy your career-"

Really

Are you sure?

Because I’m pretty sure that Licia Ronzulli would laugh at that declaration.

This is so awesome and makes me happy!!! but why is the baby suddenly blonde in the last photo??

Love.

Always reblog.

 #remember when sookie was played by a fat actress and there were literally no jokes about her weight on the show? #remember how she wasn’t defined by her weight? #remember how she got to date and get married and have kids and not be just the token funny fat friend of the main character? #remember when she ~got her life together and was happy before lorelai and that wasn’t seen as threatening?

remember how her insecurities (which she did have, because doesn’t everyone?) had nothing to do with her appearance and were more about her artistic failures, her ability to be a mom, her “annoying quirks” she thought Jackson would get tired of?

remember how even though she was often clumsy forgetful and disorganized she was still portrayed as a competent adult? remember how her decision to get married and have kids didn’t diminish her career as a master chef and entrepreneur? remember how she was a bubbly and funny supporting character without being shallow or unintelligent?

The largest part of why I so badly want Amy Poehler to be recognised for her work as Leslie Knope in Parks and Recreation with an Emmy is because there are so few I can think of in this industry that manage to produce comedy and a character that is weirdly kind, sweet and life-affirming and yet still manages to be so incredibly funny.
And so much of that is Amy Poehler’s doing.
Poehler has been such a rare force of positivity, good-humoured comic talent and activism-by-example, and it is a gift to an industry that can be nasty, cut-throat and sexist. 
And I know the Emmys are just another shitty popularity contest, as the Maslany snub has proved, but I still want it to be Poehler’s year.

Win or lose*, Amy Poehler is changing the world by being herself. She exemplifies what it means to be a Smart Girl and we love her so much ♥ 
*but we really hope she wins!!
