Yay, someone actually asked me ;u;
Ayumi - Who would your rival be if you were an idol?
Hmm, I feel like I’m a lot like Risako, so maybe her. But I also really want to be like her, so I guess it would be more of aspiring to be like her rather than rivaling her. Post 2014 changes H!P-wise, probably Haruna.
Yurina -If there was an idol sports team, what sport would they play?
Volleyball, but isn’t that kinda cliche?
Saki - What kind of dance would you like to see an idol group try?
Well, I wonder if there is any specialty idol groups that can collectively dance ballet. That would be interesting! But I’d like to see MM’14 challenge UUG’s formation dancing. UUG is intense!
Ayaka - If you could choose one idol to produce their own group, who would it be?
Sayumi! Or Risako!
Tomoko - What’s your go to idol song at karaoke?
So, I paint my nails pretty regularly these days. I also work as a barista/cashier pretty regularly these days. A few weeks back, I had a customer come in, a fairly typical, sheltered, suburban soccer mom, and she ordered a latte from me. She saw my brightly colored nails and said, “Wow, you’re so brave! My son asked me about painting his nails, and if it’s okay for boys to do that. Now I’ll tell him there’s a cool guy who does it too!” It was a nice moment, very cute.
Then, last week, she came in again, and said, “Hey, I’m so glad you’re here! I want you to meet someone!” She then brings her son forward, and says, “Okay sweetie, show him what you did!” And he throws his hands up, showing off his bright, sparkling blue nails. He shows them off, and I show mine off to him. He smiles. We fist bump.
Guys, I’ve only wanted to cry once at work before, and that was when someone ordered a large dry soy cappuccino on ice.
This time, though. This was a good cry.
Just another example of how beauty standards and body hate are (and always have been) fabricated.
This photo series of brides seeing their brides for the first time might make you cry in the best possible way.
yeah she’s cute and all but is her feminism intersectional?
next time someone tells you Muslim countries oppress women, let them know Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Turkey, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, and Senegal have all had female Presidents or Prime Ministers and 1/3rd of Egypt’s parliament is female but the US has yet to even have a female vice president and can’t say “vagina” when discussing female reproductive rights
