So I was travelling and I had a backpack with me which had a notebook, my purse, a bottle of coke and like 2 maxi pads for vagina reasons
After travelling for a few hours I reached into my bag to grab my purse and it was sticky and the unopened coke bottle was empty
I was feeling my bag expecting a pool of coke at the bottom and why it hadn’t leaked out of my bag and it turns oUT MY MAXI PADS ABSORBED AN ENTIRE FUCKING BOTTLE OF COKE

Okay but

Can we just take a moment to appreciate this whole scene?

When I first started Kill La Kill, I did not think that I was going like it; all I saw were the stupid, oversexualized women’s get-ups so common in anime and media today, and all I could do was internally groan and think “ugh, why can’t we have a female lead who isn’t constantly objectified?”

And then this scene happened, and everything snapped into place for me.

This scene is genius because it points out just how much it is ingrained into our minds to automatically sexualize a woman’s body, no matter what that woman’s intent is. We learn in this scene that Satsuki’s (and Ryuko’s) appearance in her kamui has absolutely nothing to do with pleasing ANYONE but herself. Her body is not for men’s pleasure, and she makes that very clear.

In fact, this whole concept is one of the very things that sold me on Kill La Kill, and is one of the reasons why I now consider it to be one of my favorite shows; It teaches you that being comfortable and confident with your body, naked or dressed, is a source of power, not shame.







"She gets sexed up"

"It’s inappropriate."

"A terrible example for young girls."

"Does being yourself mean wear swanky clothing and wear a lot of makeup?"

Yes, actually it can.

I hate when people say this about Elsa. I HATE IT.

First I would like to mention that when people say “be yourself” some people don’t really mean. What they mean is don’t try to hard, don’t put too much makeup, don’t wear clothes that are too tight or comfy, stay comfortable. And for some people, that is not themselves.

Some people like to put on a lot of makeup.

Some people like wearing revealing clothing.

Some people like to look rebellious.

You can’t hold that against them.


All her life, she was told to be this quiet, poised, conservative girl. A girl who wears long dresses, capes. A girl who doesn’t talk back, doesn’t act up. She was trapped. She was trapped in a little box full of responsibilities.

And now she’s LETTING GO.

Did you even listen to the freaking song?

She’s becoming what she wants to be. She’s letting go of the past and heading straight into the future. And no one affects what she looks like. There is no boy she wants to impress. No townspeople. No parents. 

She’s doing all of this for herself.

And I don’t know about you, but I think that this is a great example to set for little girls, afraid to be themselves.

I’m a little worried that people think wearing high heels (a basic article of clothing for women in and out of the workplace), showing half of one leg and a bit of her shoulders, and wearing a decent amount of makeup is deemed “inappropriate”.
