"I’m so, so tired of saviors being boys," I sigh for the thousandth time, watching another media property I like fall victim to this trope. "Really sick of these miracle babies born to virgin or infertile mothers, all prophesied to save the human race or the world or the universe, all turning out to be boys. Like, we can have girls or nonbinary people as the foretold saviors too, right?"

Lo and behold, later this evening I receive a mysterious call from a mysterious, deep-voiced stranger telling me that I am the prophesied savior, and suddenly I rescind my wish. “I don’t know, man,” I tell the stranger. “Pop culture tells me you’re looking for a boy? I mean,” I continue, struggling to find excuses as to why I shouldn’t be the one sent on a mission to save the world, “I’m a girl, right, and this doesn’t happen to us in stories, like ever? And I still have a year of college left, debts to pay, things like that? This seems like more responsibility than I can handle. Pretty sure there’s been a mistake here.”

"There is no mistake," says the stranger. "You are the one who was foretold."

"Well, shit," I say to the stranger, which is not a very savior-like thing to say, come to think of it. "I am not prepared for this at all."

OOTD + showing off my latest sewing creations. For the past couple days I’ve been working with some of the fabrics from Michael Miller’s Nevermore collection and I’ve made a halter vest, corset, and skirted vest, all reversible, with them. These are the white side-I used the black fabric and print on the other side, which can be seen in the last picture.. The corset uses a self-drafted pattern and is insanely comfortable because it can bring in my waist a full 2-4” while not putting any pressure on my ribs or hips. I’m excited to use it and the vest pattern, also self-drafted, again! These vests are perfect for wearing with corsets.

if you ever need a good cry just read up on st thecla, who was sentenced to die by beasts for defending herself from a rapist, and how in the amphitheater the most fierce of all of the creatures, a she-lion, fell at her feet and groomed her, and then protected her from all the other animals, culminating in a confrontation with a he-lion, where the exhausted, wounded lioness kills him but dies in the process, and how witnessing this fueled the women of the city to rise in protection of thecla when they realize the lioness can no longer protect her 

like the detail that its a lioness who comes to thecla’s defense is really highlighted in the text and the detail that she dies protecting the girl from a male lion is also highlighted and thats so significant considering the fact that thecla is to be killed because she fought off a powerful man from raping her, and that paul basically abandons her (TWICE), but then its the women of the city who protect her chastity, who take her hands while she is lead to the amphitheater, who step up and call out the atrocity of the sentencing and denounce the governor and support thecla in a voice so loud that “the whole city seemed to be shaken”, and drug the next round of beasts to sleep, like. 

a girl ripping the crown from the head of her rapist, surrogate momma lion’s tearing rabid bears to pieces, women shaking cities to the ground with their voices its a good saint story

Could you maybe possibly tag your girl problems ? With a trigger or something ? As a guy I don't want to see that on my dashboard
