The head-turning Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christie is a towering 6ft 3in tall and admits she often felt she couldn’t relate to women on the big screen because of her Amazonian frame, but is now relishing the opportunity to play a tough, fierce warrior in the medieval fantasy drama.

She said: “It’s really vitally important to me the way women are portrayed. As someone who has always felt at times pretty genderless because of my size, it interests me to challenge ideas of prejudice and femininity, and what it is to be a woman.”

The towering actress reveals that she had numerous setbacks in her career before landing a prized role as Brienne of Tarth in the hit show, adding: “I found it so frustrating, particularly at the beginning, because I would be told, ‘Sorry love, you’re too tall.’ At one stage I was like, ‘I’ll give this another six months and if this persists, ‘I’ll become a nun.’ “

For her role as warrior Brienne, Gwendoline trained how to fight with swords and ride horses and says it’s “empowering” to know she can “break a man’s nose with my elbow.”

"I do all my own stunts and come away with bruises and scratches. After one scene I was absolutely covered in bruises all down one leg and up one arm. But it’s worth it. It’s quite fun. I enjoy knocking around with the boys."

I cannot get enough of this woman. She deserves all the awards.

Someone pointed out how much Steve Morris’ Buffy looks like her mother. Maybe it’s just the hair, but it warms my heart.

"Was discussing Zelda vs Peach today with a friend. They were my fave characters in Super Smash. I was trying to explain the subtlety of design and how you can express a lot about a character even before you seen how they behave. I did a quick redesign to illustrate my point. Peach is an extrovert, so she’s up and out. Round against flat, with a little bounce thrown in. Zelda on the other hand is down and in. She is long and lean, with a much narrower silhouette. She has a lot more substance than Peach, so her clothes are highly decorated, plus a fair bit of her face is obstructed by her hair. There are a few more subtleties thrown in as well. Have fun looking for them"

People being angry about ~dem gays~ on Target’s Facebook.

I just want to give my two cents on this and tell you a story.

A couple weeks ago, I was hired at Target. I have a job at Target. Not a big deal right?

It is a big deal because i’m a transman

It doesn’t take a genius to conclude that it’s hard for me, my brothers, and sisters to get a job. There are legal restraints regarding the job and if you don’t pass, it’s hard to be taken seriously at a job interview.

Right on the application, it asks what your preferred name is. It also asks if there is anything that target should know. I put the fact that I am a transman, expecting not to get a call because usually when you put that down, people will throw out the application. I got TWO interviews.

At the interview, they asked me about it. I told them I am on hormones and they told me that they didn’t care. Not in the sense that they don’t emotionally care, but that it didn’t matter. I was male and that’s all that mattered. They also told me that they give sex same couples benefits in states that do not recognize them as a married couple.

At my job orientation, I was not misgendered once. Even my supervisors who weren’t sure of my gender avoided pronoun use, which I found only happens when you’ve had pronoun training. They gave me a name tag with my preferred name and didn’t ask questions. I felt safe and respected, which is huge for a trans* person.

TLDR: Target is amazing not just for the LGB, but also the T. Shop there for the rest of your life.

This is a poster, you can download it and hand it out here. This is disturbing when you think about the reality of that.
Go out and grab five trans women. If your sample is truly random, you know two things:
That, probably, three of them are survivors.
That it’s nearly statistically impossible for one of them to have NOT attempted suicide.
Let’s spread this like wildfire.

I want everyone spreading this. Print it. Put it up on your local library. Get angry. This is disgusting. Let’s see how far we can get the message out that we have something we can do about it.

Legend of Zelda x Pokemon!!

Link is a new trainer who hopes to defeat the Champion Ganondorf. With the help of his childhood friend Zelda at his side, will he be victorious…??

I’ve been working on these pieces slowly on and off for so many weeks now while experimenting with new painting processes, so I’m happy to see them completed after all this time! I streamed the process on all of these so I hope some of you were able to catch some of it. I learned a lot through finishing these so I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who has left such enthusiastic comments! <3
