Why are most villains women? …This is interesting!

Because we look fabulous while doing it.

jafar, captain hook and hades all look like the sassy gay friends in the group

Let’s be real, guys. It’s bc non-normative femininity is monstrous.
Like that is why all the villains are these amazing beautiful badass impressive feminine powers; subversive or whatever femininity in “either” gender is a threat, non legible genders and races are threats (look at the distribution of racial “others” in this picture, as well)
These badass feminine powers weren’t necessarily imagined as a good thing by their creators/writers/etc
We’re just reclaiming/reimagining them that way now
So yeah.
Monstrous femininity, bro

Yeah, the male villains are coded feminine because effeminacy in a man (see: Skyfall) is often used as an indicator of evilness or instability (unstable —> dangerous). Same goes for witchcraft (which is itself a feminine code): five of the eight characters up there use some kind of black magic, and of those five two are male. Same ratio of witches to non-witches as of female to male.
It’s always amused me that witches are assumed to be villains in fairytale adaptations, since so many fairytales have witches showing up out of the blue to be helpful for no real reason. 

Monstrous femininity. I do adore that turn of phrase.

Maggie the Little Tuxedo Girl

She’s too cute for words.
She knows exactly how to melt our hearts.
She was rescued by the Tonis Kitty Rescue in San Francisco and is now being cared for by Josh Norem of The Furrtographer. 
What she needs next is a forever loving home!

Oh my goodness this sweet lil baby… I can’t take the cute!

I found this copy of Thoreau’s Walden buried in the park.  I opened it and saw these roots growing between the pages. I don’t know whether to frame it or put it back in the ground.
