1023 – Courtney E Martin on Powerfully Sexiness and Beauty

“You know what’s really powerfully sexy? A sense of humor. A taste for adventure. A healthy glow. Hips to grab on to. Openness. Confidence. Humility. Appetite. Intuition. A girl who makes the world seem bigger and more interesting. A girl who can rap. A loud laugh that comes from her belly. Smart-ass comebacks. Presence. A quick wit. Dirty jokes told by an innocent looking lady. Hooded sweatshirts. Breakfast in bed. A girl with boundaries. Grace. Clumsiness. A runny-nosed crier. A partner who knows what turns her on. Sassy waitresses. Pretty scientists. Any and all librarians […]. Truth. Vulnerability. Strength. Naïveté. Big breasts. Small breasts. Doesn’t matter the size, they all fascinate. A girl who can play the blues harp. A girl who calls you on your bullshit but isn’t afraid to love you in spite of it. A storyteller. A genius. A doctor. A new mother. A woman who realizes how beautiful she is.”

786 – Joss Whedon on Gender Equality

“Equality is not a concept. It’s not something we should be striving for. It’s a necessity. Equality is like gravity. We need it to stand on this Earth as men and women, and the misogyny that is in every culture is not a true part of the human condition. It is life out of balance, and that imbalance is sucking something out of the soul of every man and women who’s confronted with it. We need equality, kinda now.”

–Joss Whedon

775 – “They talk about a woman’s sphere as though it had a limit; There’s not a place in Earth or Heaven, There’s not a task to mankind given, There’s not a blessing or a woe, There’s not a whispered yes or no, There’s not a life, or death, or birth, That has a feather’s weight or worth—Without a woman in it.”

–C E Bowman

381 – “The common man or women, whether they are Israeli or Palestinian, Protestant or Catholic or Iraqi or American, the common man just wants to live in peace and justice in a clean environment. When we look around the world and see that that is not the case, we know the will of the majority is not being listened to, that’s the first sign that our system is broken.”

–Woody Harrelson
