Kacy Catanzaro: the first woman in history to qualify for Mt. Midoriyama.

I just need everyone to watch this video [x]. She’s a 5 foot, 100 lb gymnast and she beasts through this insanely difficult, heavily upper body focused course like it was her morning jog. The camera keeps cutting to these massive, musclebound men in the audience with their mouths hanging open. 

this is the most amazing thing ive ever seen

YOU GUYS

YOU GUYYYYYYSSSSS

Look at this girl using a course designed with a man’s body and a man’s center of strength in mind.  Look at this petite human being competing on a course that we visualize being conquered by height and brawn.

Look at her take her time.  Look at her use HER WHOLE BODY to capitalize on her lower body strength.  She doesn’t try to do it the way it’s been done before.  She does it her way.  She doesn’t try to beat anyone’s time.  She just gets it the fuck done.

Women firefighters douse flames during the Pearl Harbor attack.

Oh hay look women of colour were an integral part of the ‘cool’ part of history too, how about that.  They were like. Doing stuff that supposedly only heroic white dudes had done. That makes women valid participants in collective history now, right? Right? This is in high school history books now, right? Right? Huh?

It reminds me of that one famous painting/sculpture of the soldiers raising the flag
I like this one a lot better.

I’m not kidding. Where is the Cox-DeGrasse Tyson Presidential ticket? I need to be able to vote for them because I just. I will not settle for less than that much amazement.

I was driving past a business here in the Houston Heights, when I glimpsed this painted on the side of the building. I recognized that iconic WWII poster before I realized it was not just any woman, but 14 year old Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl who was attacked for wanting an education. The words next to her are her quote, ( “I don’t mind if I have to sit on the floor at school.) All I want is education. And I’m afraid of no one.”

This is gorgeous.
