My Weekend Independence

Happy birthday, America! Isn’t it fun how we still celebrate our breakup from England all these years later. In honor of the U.S. of A.’s birthday, let’s get crazy up in here. I’ve been jamming out to M.I.A. featuring Missy Elliott & Azealia Banks for the last day and a half. So let’s go smash some patriarchy with Wonder Woman this holiday weekend. And watch some fireworks. And drink some beer. Or just press play and watch this gif over and over and over and over. Hey, how about all of the above?

This is particularly relevant for many reasons eight now including but not limited to a) the new artist tapped to draw Wonder Woman for DC Comics saying he wants her to be “strong,” but “I don't want to say feminist.” And 2) All three of the female Supreme Court Justices being completely done with all the mansplaining about female reproductive freedom happening among their male counterparts. Smash some shit, indeed. Happy Fourth of July weekend, all.

p.s. Promised OITNB character recaps are coming on Monday. Monday, I tell ya. *throws paper in the air and runs off*
