Casual sexism from one thread on AskReddit. The hatred for teenage girls on the web is hugely disturbing. Just Google “I hate teenage girls” or browse reddit for a hearty dose. But it’s not just hivemind sites like reddit, I see it on Facebook every day from friends and friends’ friends. It’s like a sexist ageist rolling ball of misplaced rage. It’s another function of the hate machine.
I love Éowyn. She is such an awesome character. She’s not afraid to be fragile, she’s not afraid to be strong. She puts herself out there, she takes care of people. She wants to be valued, she wants to be worth something to someone. She is brave and stubborn and can’t cook for shit. She lets people know what she wants and expects from them and she can take it when she’s rebuffed. She is not afraid to be who she is. She is no man.
