In the Meantime…

Hello Nerdlings!

I just wanted to let you know that your trusty AngryNerdGirl hasn’t abandoned you.  There has been a LOT going on the past few weeks regarding agency, women’s rights over their own bodies, and feminism in general.  I have so much to say, but have had so little time to write!  Just a quick update: I’m currently a little over halfway through training to be a medical advocate at Rape Victim Advocates (check them out, they’re amazing.)  Also, I’ve been recapping Scandal over at tvgasm and took a little trip out of town.  I have been a very busy lady!  Hopefully, I will get my thoughts out in a coherent order tomorrow and post something brilliant for you all.  In the meantime, however, I’ve been reading a lot about Disney’s newest feminist scandal regarding fellow curly-haired feminist Merida.  Being who I am, after getting over my initial outrage, I started to realize that Merida is extremely similar to another pop-culture hero.  Then I made pictures to prove it.  Guess who?  Nope, not Katniss Everdeen!

Hint: They share a love of badassery and a hatred of fancy dresses.

Brienne of Tarth and Merida: Besties for life!

Bear troubles, ladies?

After all, why did Brienne leave Tarth to go fight for Renly’s army?

Oops, wrong one.  Nope, Brienne would only marry someone who could best her with a sword.  Turns out, that was….no one.

Til next time, and I hope it will be soon, this is AngryNerdGirl signing off!
