Hedy: When asked how to look glamorous she tartly retorted "Any girl can look Glamorous, just stand still and look Stupid." Hedy was also a spy in WW2 and stole crucial intelligence from the Nazis for the US. She thought acting and modeling were silly occupations but it was a great cover for her spy work and allowed her to pursue what she really loved, inventing Tech!

I had no idea about these actress scientists. Why can't more of women in Pop Culture be recognized for their intelligence and great success? Instead they are more known for the physical features. (observation)

Lessons from Twilight vs Lessons from Buffy - One of the things I loved about Buffy is that she almost never needed saving, and she certainly NEVER played the damsel in distress (like lana lang, blah, please)
Geek, Vampire Slayer, Lessons, Buffy, Twilight, Funny Stuff, Movie, Things
Ahaha. Buffy rocks. Twilight does NOT. #buffy #btvs #twilight #movies #books #funny #lol #lessons Repinned from Annamaria Veneziano: Twilight vs Buffy
hahaha buffy, teaching proper lessons every episode; twilight, turning girls into retards one movie at a time...
Found from Lady Geek Girl & Friends, this picture is showing the difference between Twilight and Buffy and the male and female roles. Edward is being very controlling and Bella is accepting it. Then there's Buffy rejecting help from a man and solving a problem herself. This connects with the "deadly love" article because that talks about how twilight it subtly abusive. Edward controls pretty much everything she does and she is always the target of violence throughout the saga.
Haha. Awesome... Lessons from Twilight vs. Lessons from Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Percy Jackson (books, not films, just putting that out there) ... All amazingly awesome... Then u fall asleep watching twilight.
I don't think anyone is really fair with Bella. She comes from a broken home. She never had a female role model she always took care of her mom. So she makes mistakes just like everyone else. And yes maybe she is not a good role model either but seriously go easy on her.
I will name my Daughter Annabeth after Annabeth Chase from Percy Jackson. I absolutely love all of them!!!! They are my role models!!!!!!!!!
Books - Female role models in YA fiction: Hermione Granger - It's cool to be smart. In a fight, brains are just as important as brawn. Katniss Everdeen - You are not insignificant. By taking a stand against tyranny you can create a spark that ignites a revolution and changes the world. Annabeth Chase - Winning requires strategy, not luck. Thinking, reasoning and careful planning will lead you to victory. Bella Swan - lol I boinked a blood sucking demon but it's cool cuz we got married and stuff.
Hhahahhahahaaa Bella Swan is the epitome of bad female role models!!! Shame!!!
Young adult female role models:] ... I like twilight tho

Life Lessons from Chronicles of Narnia, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Hunger Games, and... Twilight taught me the kinds of girls who need protecting, and the types of guys to stay the hell away from

Why I love Donna Noble
Yay Donna, Rose, Donna Xd, Doctor Who, Donna Noble, Dr Who
Ha! Why I LOVE Donna Noble! She was a total shrew and I hated her in her first ep...but she grew on me!
I love Donna, and Martha's face in the background of the last panel is hilarious! Martha and Donna are my favorite companions!
Ha! I love Ten, but he was a bit precious over Rose. C'mon, the other companions were just as brilliant.
The difference with Donna... But I love how Jack cries over Rose in the fourth panel too :] <-- I like how Martha smiles when Donna smacks Ten
Donna Noble was just who he needed. Awwww the doctor and jack started crying when he mentioned Rose
I love Donna, and Martha's face in the background of the last panel is hilarious!

"Let me tell you something about that dress. I hated that dress. The first 6 hours were supercool, and then I had to pee." Jewel Staite
I've never seen Firefly, but I have seen Nathan and Jewel in other shows and LOVE them both... Guess I need to watch the show whose cancellation launched a thousand tears!
Kaylee's dress! Jewel Staite repeated her plaint at ComicCon 2013 in Ottawa. There will be lots of washrooms at the Minto Suites, where CAN-CON 2013 is scheduled on October 4-6, 2013 in Ottawa CANADA. The Cutting Edge of Science Fiction.
Firefly: Awww, Kaylee!.....imho that dress was sorta fugly, but you loved it so much!
Jewel didn't like the dress as much as her character did.
Jewel Staite lets the truth out about that dress.

Because she is made of awesome.
Timelord, The Doctor, Doctor Who, Doctors, Shut Up, Mad Man, Donna Noble
Nobody talks to Donna Noble like that- not even The Doctor. This is why she is my favorite companion: she puts The Doctor in his place. :)
And then there was Donna. "I don't know what sort of kids you've been flying round with in outer space, but you're not telling me to shut up" #DoctorWho #DonnaNoble
All of the past Regenerations of The Doctor say shut up to their companions...but Donna Noble will not take it. Donna is not hard to like.
This is why I don't people who say Clara or Amy challenge the Doctor in a way no other companion has before. Uh, hello, Donna Noble? My favorite companion.
Nobody tells Donna Noble to shut up. Not even the Doctor. Especially not the Doctor.
The Doctor loves to say "shut up" but Donna Noble is a force to be reasoned with.
Doctor Who | Donna Noble, folks. The only one to put the Doctor in perspective.
The Doctors will say "Shut up", but NO ONE says "Shut up" to Donna Noble, XD
Donna Noble: The only woman to tell the Doctor to shut up SHE IS AWESOME

Sass Trek. This was one of my favorite Spock moments in Star Trek Into Darkness. I literally (not figuratively) could not stop laughing for a full 3 minutes, in theatre time, that is an ETERNITY for those who were in the theatre with me, for that I apologize, but Sassy Spock is FUNNY and unexpected, until now.

Simon Pegg describing his experience on Star Trek, and trying to keep his composure. He geeks out, too.
Yep. Me = Nerd. And proud of it. Love this. ~Simon Pegg describing his experience on Star Trek
TV - Star Trek Reboot: "The other major memory is performing scenes with Leonard Nimroy. It's one of thing to work with an actor you have known your whole life but to meet a character, in context, that was something beyond description. Having Mr. Spick look into my eyes and say 'You are Montgomery Scott.' My brain was quietly short circuitting as I tried to remember my lines. I clearly remember think 'Holy ----, I'm in Star Trek." - Simon Pegg (aka Mr. Scott)
