If you're a feminist who understands the (apparently not) radical concept that women can have penises and men can have vaginas (and that there are people with either or both of those who may very well identify as neither a man nor a woman), would you mind reblogging this?

I already knew I loved Claudia, but now I know even more.
There are as many ways to be “girly” as there are girls in this world. There are always going to be people out there telling you that if you like things pop culture tells you are girly, you’re stupid, and that if you claim to like things pop culture tells you are guy stuff, you’re lying.

I love you, Claudia Gray.
Claudia Gray is the best. I’d like to be like the other girls like her.
“You become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept.

how convenient for voldemort that his birth name spells “i am lord voldemort”
And in every country in translation it gets funnier (Tom Vandrolo Riddle, Tom Vorlost Riddle, Tom Sorvolo Ryddle, Tom Lomen Valedro). It’s best in French: Je suis Lord Voldemort=>Tom Elvis Jedusor. Apparently in Slovenian his name is LORD MRLAKENSTEIN and his proper name is Mark Neelstein which makes me feel like he’s some dude I went to middle school with.
Emma Stone:But people do always ask that. They ask who is my style icon, what's the one thing that I can't leave my house without. I'm always like, "My clothes!" I can pretty much leave without anything. It's fine as long as I'm not naked.
Andrew Garfield:I don't get asked that—
Emma Stone:You get asked interesting, poignant questions because you are a boy.
