Barbie Doesn’t Earn Feminist Empowerment Badge for Becoming A Girl Scout

image

Mattel has an elaborate bullpen of “I Can Be” Barbie dolls dressed for careers as various as “Pet Vet” to “Fashion Designer” and, thanks to a new partnership between Mattel and Girl Scouts USA, Barbie has a new…

Oh, and the careers on that game are so arbitrary. Everyone is in a sparkly dress or jeans, so the distinction between artist, architect, dolphin trainer and pediatrician is literally nothing.

Girl scouts, why did you agree to this?

BREAKING: LOVE WINS AGAIN! Moments ago, Miami-Dade County Judge Zabel ruled that Florida’s marriage ban is unconstitutional! There is an immediate stay on the ruling, which means no wedding bells in Florida just yet. Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi has already filed an appeal on the decision.

Same-sex marriage ban has been struck down in Miami-Dade county! Which makes me think that Florida is the only state where marriage equality is only allowed in certain counties. Way to fail, Florida.

There’s a stay on both decisions by AG Pam Bondi. We’re waiting on whether or not things will go through. You can’t get married yet in monroe county

I think Hiccup and Astrid are the best animated couple ever.

I love how their relationship isn’t a major plot point for the films. Astrid isn’t there as a reward for the hero, she is also his best friend (next to Toothless of course). She didn’t stop being a warrior after she became a love interest (and Hiccup wouldn’t want her to, he loves her for it).

They talk about their problems. They fight their enemies together. And they trust each other.

Something that I’m just noticing from these gifs. They actually lean their cheeks into the kisses, opposed to just letting the other do all the work.  That’s something actual couples do when they know each other well enough to know it’s coming.  I love this.

Veggie Baked Mac & Cheese (Vegetarian)

"Sometimes life is not all about balance. For example, this is by no means a perfectly balanced mac and cheese. There’s some cheese in here, but nowhere close to four cheeses. Nothing is truffled, or bacon-ed, or cauliflower-ed. There’s some mac – but, all and all, it’s pretty light on the pasta to “other stuff” ratio. This is the kind of filling, yet, not-over-the-top meal that I like to eat in an every day sort of way. These days, in particular, I’m into meals that are overwhelmingly jam packed with green things.”

Recipe here.
