[As a girl, you’re supposed to love Sleeping Beauty. I mean, who wants to love Sleeping Beauty when you can be Aladdin? ~Ellen Page]
[When you’re a girl you have to be everything. You have to be dope at what you do but you have to be super sweet, and you have to be sexy, and you have to be this and you have to be that and you have to be nice. And you have to—it’s like, I can’t be all of those things at once. I’m a human being. ~ Nicki Minaq]

I don’t want to deny my femininity, but would I want to be a stay-at-home mother? No. On the other hand, you should be allowed to do that, as should me, without being sneered at. ~Keira Knightley]

Here are some awesome and empowering quotes from several very strong female celebrities.
And Kristen Stewart.
No, you know what? Fuck you.
Let me tell you about Kristen Stewart.
Let’s talk about how she’s the centerpiece of one of the most inexplicably popular misogynistic pieces of film shit and somehow gets blamed for it sucking, despite the fact that, hey, the books were actually worse. For those who were lucky enough to escape reading the actual books, her apparent lack of emotion is 100% accurate to Bella’s character, because Bella is in fact not a character but a blank white wall for fourteen-year-old girls to project themselves onto. Robert Pattinson is not the only one in the cast who hates Twilight, thank you.
Let’s talk about how she got crucified in the media for having an affair with a married man, when that man was her director. And let’s remember that she was called all manner of things for “ruining her relationship with RPattz” when she wasn’t even engaged to the dude, let alone married with kids. But oh no, she gets called a slut because she’s Kristen Stewart, she gets her career fucked because she’s Kristen Stewart, and the dude gets off scott free.
Let’s talk about how she is incredibly shy and anxious (rather, incidentally, like Chris Evans) but does film anyway, because she’s just that awesome.
Fuck your noise. She’s not the best actor in the world but she sure as hell doesn’t deserve that kind of shit.
…Huh. Y’know, you Tumblr-folk are pretty adept at getting me to respect the Twilight stars again. Good for you.
Re-blogging because even though I can’t read any of the images (I can’t blame the inaccessible tumblr UI for the tumblr CULTURE, which breaks every basic rule of accessibility by taking text and turning it into damn images, WTH), the hate on people have for Kristen Stewart is deeply reactionary and antifeminist.
We’re supposed to have a certain reaction when a young, up-and-coming actress sleeps with her married director.
It’s not supposed to be anger at the ACTRESS.
Not to mention she did a damn good job as Joan Jett. She’s not a terrible actress just because you love to hate movies aimed at girls.
Transcription added. *waits to see how many reblogs before transcription is snipped*
She played Joan Jett? How come I never hear about the things I want to hear about??
