Me: Middle class suburban plus-size married lesbian mom.

Interests: Disney theme parks, comics (mostly DC); size acceptance, LGBT equality

 

endless list of DC ladies:
Helena Bertinelli/The Huntress

"Every hero has a story, not that I'm some kind of hero. 
But there comes a point when to survive, the hunted must
become the Huntress."

While there was never a legitimate reason for the ab window in her costume, Helena Bertinelli is probably overall my favorite DC character!

Her “Bite me” to the Joker during No Man’s Land as she’s near mortally wounded and he’s pointing a gun at her head is the one scene in comics I will never forget.

When I met Merida in Disney world this Christmas, I was a wreck. I managed to work myself up into an anxiety attack before I even got into the garden. I made it through meeting her and talking to her without crying but as I grabbed my bag to leave I burst into tears, she said “no come back” and gave me a huge hug, here she was telling me to be brave. All I could think about is how I’m not brave and that she wouldn’t even talk to me if she knew what kind of person I really was. I couldn’t say any of that so I just nodded. I came back the next day and several times after during my trip to Disney. Never, in my entire life have I met someone who had such an instant effect on my life. There had been a date in my mind for several months before I met Merida. It was the 19th of January 2014 and that was the day I planned to commit suicide. Miraculously enough, I’m still here. Thanks to Merida’s kindness and her insisting that I am brave, I’m still here. I am rather far off being brave, but I’m alive and that’s what counts.

This and countless other reasons is why Disney is so important to people who are not “children”. Its awful how many times I have heard stories of guests complaining about the about of people who visit the parks who are not there just cause they have kids to take.
 People thrive in fantasy worlds to help them escape the real life hardships. And when we come to the parks, we wanna see special experiences like this, not you and your family screaming at a Cast Member because something didn’t go your way. Every person who passes through a character line or an attraction line is important. Just because you are not under the age of 12 does not mean you don’t love and need a character any less.

Disney characters are like avatars for the people who seek them out.  We know that they’re actors in costumes, and that doesn’t matter: we’re meeting our childhood friends, the people who told us we could be strong, and brave, and endure.  There’s a reason that so many of us seek the Parks when our hearts are breaking.
This is that reason.

I confess I am super-intimidated by the face characters. My shy side just explodes and I don’t know what to say or how to act, so I’m content to just watch them. But they are amazing people who don’t just swish skirts and pose prettily. The stories are numerous, these people and the beloved characters they play change lives.

This is one of the many reasons why I love working for this company even if it’s not in a role I wanted/should have been placed in…

this is all very important. very, very important. i love this company and the magic it creates for people of all ages.

This is one of the reasons I love cosplaying Xena. I’ve had people come up to me crying. They tell me that Xena saved their life. We hug and they tell me their story. Things they have always wanted to say to Xena. It’s a cathartic experience for them and a touching one for me.

Harley Quinn and Ivy Go Canon in the new 52?

dcwomenkickingass:

Harley Quinn certainly has been considered part of queer pairing with Poison Ivy by most fans based on the animated version of the character and some moments like this from Gotham City Sirens.

In the semi-annual couple’s tournaments I’ve held Harley/Ivy is much more popular couple than Joker/Ivy.

But in the new 52 Ivy was off in Birds of Prey while Harley joined the Suicide Squad. But now with her own book, the two have been reunited and the innuendo moves into canon category.

So if you haven’t read this realize there is material from today’s comic below.

This makes me very happy!

I just finished rereading Byan Q. Miller’s Batgirl: The Lesson…

… and my eyes are more than a bit misty remembering how much I love Steph under his direction.
