I went to the Renaissance faire dressed as a warrior. I had a real sword with me, too. I was standing (in character) next to a sword-fighting ring, where kids of all ages got the chance to pick up a sword and challenge the champion. Some woman walks by, with her little girl. The girl starts walking towards the ring, saying she wants to fight. But the mom pulled her away hella sharply, and was like, “That’s for boys.” You don’t want to be a BOY, do you?” And the girl looked around and saw me. I think she thought I was a boy; I had my hair in a ponytail, and was wearing a hood. So she comes up to me and asks me, “Do you think girls can be fighters, too?” And her mom looks like she’s silently gloating. Like she thinks I’m going to say no. So I take off my hood, untie my hair so that it flows freely, and kneel before her. And I’m like, “Milady, anyone can be a fighter.” I swear, the look on that mother’s face made my day.
My respect for Russell Brand is growing… FUCK FOX NEWS!
Sometime my die hard liberal hippie side makes an unrequested appearance. If I had the time I would start a political tumblr, but the thought of that makes me too angry so I digress back to the safety of the “old days”…
"men, it’s been a long war, it’s been a tough war. you’ve fought bravely, proudly for your country. you’re a special group. you’ve found in one another a bond that exists only in combat, among brothers. you’ve shared foxholes, held each other in dire moments. you’ve seen death and suffered together. i’m proud to have served with each and every one of you. you all deserve long and happy lives in peace.”
