Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.
Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.
Remember IT IS NOT A WOMAN’S RESPONSIBILITY TO PREVENT RAPE. In the world we live in, however, women should be empowered with any tools in order to protect themselves. Source for more facts follow NowYouKno
they would rather make virtual horses shit than put more women in their games
I’m not saying you do not have a point, but have you ever played MGS? As far as female characters go, it has a wide and diversified array of memorable female characters. It has its problems, it’s still skewed towards the men, but MGS is one of the last games series that deserves this particular critique.
"Diversified" Right! We have blonde AND a red head.
Olga. Saves the main character’s ass in MGS2.
Eva. Outsmarts the hero and takes off with his stuff.
Emma. Literally saves the fucking world.
The Boss. Considered to be the greatest soldier to ever live. Taught Big Boss (the person in the gifset) everything he knows. Kicked his ass multiple times.
Amanda. Leader of her own mercenary group. Political activist and revolutionary
Paz. Outsmarts all the heroes at the end and steals their shit.
Strangelove. Greatest AI Programmer in the world. Canonly a lesbian.
Naomi. Considered to be one of the greatest genetic engineers in the world.
Mei Ling. Commanding officer of a fucking battleship.
Meryl. Leader of her own special forces group.
Sunny. Six year old child. Saved the world at the end of MGS4.
And yeah of course all of these women have problems with their representation, but it’s kind of laughable to say that MGS has no female characters. All of these characters are main characters who are important to the storyline, and it’s not even all of them. I will 100% admit that there are problems with their characters, and that MGS has had some horribly sexist female characters before. But the female main characters are seriously almost as numerous as the male characters, and they all have important roles.
brotp? oh, yeah. okay. they’re totally a brotp. best bros. bros for life. bros MARRIED for life. bros who make out all the time. bros who confess their feelings on a summer night in a field of tall grass. it was windy and there were fireflies
