    sorry everyone

    Excuse me.

    • One of the first women to start her own independent production company.
    • Earned her way to stardom without sleeping with executives for roles.
    • Refused to date people for publicity just because 20th Century Fox wanted her to.
    • Left 20th Century Fox because she refused to let them get away with treating her badly and paying her a tiny wage, just because of her “dumb blonde” image.
    • Was only paid a fraction of her co-star’s wage even though she was the star of the movies and the biggest box office pull, but still went ahead with the movies because she was so passionate about acting.
    • Studied method acting at the Actors Studio with Lee Strasberg, who said that she was one of his best students along with Marlon Brando.
    • Had a personal library of over 500 books and rarely read fiction - she was desperate to learn and educate herself.
    • Was sexually abused as a child but then went on to encourage the sexual liberation of women in the 1950s. 
    • One of the first people to speak openly about sexual abuse.
    • One of the first people to openly support gay rights.
    • Supported many charities such as the Milk Fund, March of Dimes, Arthritis and Rheumatism foundation.
    • Donated her time and money to these charities.
    • Visited orphanages and hospitals on her own time to surprise the people there.
    • Married one of the greatest literary minds of the 20th century
    • Suffered two miscarriages and one ectopic pregnancy and still put on a brave face for her fans.

    Sorry, did you say she wasn’t a role model? 

    marilyn is my biggest role model so don’t even go there

    and let’s not forget this

    Ella Fitzgerald was not allowed to play at the popular Mocambo, in Hollywood, because of her race. Marilyn, who loved her music and supported civil rights, called the owner of the Mocambo and told him that if he booked Ella immediately, she would take a front table every night. The owner said yes, and Marilyn was there, front table, every night. After that, Ella never had to play in a small jazz club again.

    "She was an unusual woman – a little ahead of her times. And she didn’t know it." - Ella Fitzgerald about Marilyn Monroe


    I got goosebumps reading this. Amazing.

    Though if you meant Andy Warhol… Yeah dude was weird

    I feel like very few, or at least not many of the people of tumblr are aware of what is going on in my home country Hong Kong right now.

    You guys gave alot of coverage and support when Scotland was voting for its independance, so I’m hoping you’ll all support the people of Hong Kong as well.

    Right now, many of us are in a mass demonstration of pro-democracy against China. But wait a sec, isn’t Hong Kong China? This is a big misconception amongst foreigners, but please, we are far from being similar to China at all.

    A little history class: Hong Kong used to be colonized by the British, and before you white-knights begin going all “them damn white racist ppl taking over another asian country” please don’t. We are thankful Britain took us under its wing and instilled in us values that I feel made us what we are today; that is, a democratic people with respect for free speech, amongst many things.

    On the other hand, China is communist, with government controlled media and news. Google, instagram, facebook and many tv shows are blocked in China. It really is just a few steps from North Korea imo.

    So what’s the problem here? Britain unfortunately had to hand back Hong Kong to China, but one of the requirements is that Hong Kong be allowed to operate as ‘one country two systems’, meaning Hong Kong should be able to have its own democratic government. But China has broken its promise. A while back, China tried to put a mandatory ‘national education’ curriculum in all our primary schools. We all know what that is; a communist brainwashing regime. And now, they have announced that in 2017 Hong Kong will be able to vote for its president; BUT only from 3 candidates hand picked by its PRO-BEIJING legislation.

    As you can see, China is trying to takeover completely and turn us into another communist state.

    Of course, we have taken to the streets. In a mirror if the Tiananmen protests, students have also stepped up to fight for our rights and our future, albeit in a peaceful protest of course. But the police force who have always been a friend of the people, are now responding with force, something that had never been done before in Hong Kong.

    First it was pepperspray, then teargas. Then, armed forces came in qith rubber bullets. They warn they will come out with live ammunition soon if we do not get off the streets but the people continue to sit tight, disrupting businesses China so strive to takeover and make use of. It’s been 2 days now, but the people plan to continue at least till 1st October or even beyond. The significance is that October 1st is China’s National day, not ours, Hong Kong has not been granted it’s own National day.

    Please spread the news. This is a country we’re talking about. These are my people.

    You can join this event to wear yellow in support of my people on October 1st.

    You can also read a more detailed explanation of what’s going down here and watch a live feed here.

    #BookADayUK / The book that made you question everything
    Okay, not everything. It just felt strange to think that The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy device is really just an early version of reading Wikipedia on a Kindle.



    In addition to designing the Brooklyn Defender this year, NYCC asked me to illustrate something they can use for their anti-harrassment signs around the convention floor. The smart idea would probably have been to draw one character in my style, for recognition’s sake, but I had this idea in my head and really wanted to try something new. I wanted it to be modular, so they could change it and use bits as they like. And I wanted it to feel inclusive. No one wants to be harassed.

    I talk about this, the Brooklyn Defender, and Rocket Girl in this awesome interview with The Mary Sue!

    Hey, that’s us!
