another way to ruin a pop classic with teenage angst.  Cyndi Lauper would be turning in her freshly dug grave

ah yEs, those angsty teenage years when overdramatic girls go through that oh-so-trivial phase of believing they deserve fundamental human rights a hah ha *wipes a stray tear of mirth*

Cyndi Laupers not even dead

Cyndi Lauper is a long-time activist for human rights and would most likely be holding the damn sign herself

"It is not a dirty word, "feminism." I just think that women belong in the human population with the same rights as everybody else. … The problem is, "A feminist looks like this, or is like that." We are taught not to like ourselves as women, we are taught what we’re supposed to look like, what our measurements are supposed to be. I never hear what measurements men are supposed to be. Just women.”
  - Cyndi Lauper

Has this dude ever even listened to the lyrics of that song?

I come home in the morning light My mother says when you gonna live your life rightOh mother dear we’re not the fortunate ones And girls they want to have fun
…
Some boys take a beautiful girl And hide her away from the rest of the worldI want to be the one to walk in the sun Oh girls they want to have fun

Girls having fun is feminist as fuck.
Girls having fun is a lot harder than boys having fun, because of all the barriers society places between girls and having carefree fun.
This is not a blow-off song:

That’s all they really want  Some funWhen the working day is done Girls - they want to have fun

It’s about being allowed to have some time for you after you’ve completed your commitments, and how frustrating it is to be hemmed in all the time. ‘That’s all they really want’ isn’t saying ‘women are just frivolous’, OK, it’s saying ‘Give us a BREAK - we aren’t asking for that much! Being an independent woman isn’t being joyless, we just want what you take for granted: fun’. JFC.

reminder that the matrix trilogy was written and directed by a trans woman (lana wachowski) along with her brother

one of the most influential and iconic sci fi movies was created by a trans woman and MORE PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THIS!! lana wachowski is a babe and an inspiration, one of the few female directors in hollywood as well as one of the few transgender people in hollywood.

"1880’s Austrian women’s fencing team poses in the fencing style of sword and dagger."
From the website of Christopher L. Oberg:

"In the early 1900’s Fencing was chosen as an olympic sport featuring the three weapons we know today. Historical fencing styles featuring back sword, rapier and dagger ect. are no longer fashionable when compared to the modern olympic fencing games of foil, epee and saber.”
