Instead of waiting in her tower, Rapunzel slices off her long, golden hair with a carving knife, and then uses it to climb down to freedom.
Just as she’s about to take the poison apple, Snow White sees the familiar wicked glow in the old lady’s eyes, and slashes the evil queen’s throat with a pair of sewing scissors.
Cinderella refuses everything but the glass slippers from her fairy godmother, crushes her stepmother’s windpipe under her heel, and the Prince falls madly in love with the mysterious girl who dons rags and blood-stained slippers.
Persephone goes adventuring with weapons hidden under her dress.
Persephone climbs into the gaping chasm.
Or, Persephone uses her hands to carve a hole down to hell.
In none of these versions is Persephone’s body violated unless she asks Hades to hold her down with his horse-whips.
Not once does she hold out on eating the pomegranate, instead biting into it eagerly and relishing the juice running down her chin, staining it red.
In some of the stories, Hades never appears and Persephone rules the underworld with a crown of her own making.
In all of them, it is widely known that the name Persephone means Bringer of Destruction.
Red Riding Hood marches from her grandmother’s house with a bloody wolf pelt.
Medusa rights the wrongs that have been done to her.
Eurydice breaks every muscle in her arms climbing out of the land of the dead.
Girls are allowed to think dark thoughts, and be dark things.
Instead of the dragon, it’s the princess with claws and fiery breath
who smashes her way from the confines of her castle
and swallows men whole.

Give me all of them.
People are going to believe that Darren Wilson was “beat up to the point of unconsciousness” with facial and eye socket fractures before he shot Michael Brown.
Yet he had enough good sense and spatial awareness to shoot him 6 times from 35 feet away. Two to the head.
But okay “to the point of unconsciousness.”
On August 9, 2014, another young, unarmed black teen was murdered in America at the hands of police in the small suburb near St. Louis. Michael “Mike Mike” Brown, 18, died after being shot at least six times by Ferguson police officer, Darren Wilson.
Since, the justifiably angry community in Ferguson has risen up to demand answers. Their peaceful protests have been met with a militarized police force that is fully equipped with tanks, police dogs, tear gas, curfew, assault rifles and riot gear. Reporters and journalists have been threatened on air. Most recently, the National Guard has been called in to “restore peace to the area” and there has been another death at the hands of police. All the while, mainstream media has been documenting what’s happening in Ferguson as ‘rioting.’ Let’s be clear, the people in Ferguson are not rioting, they are rebelling!
We will be selling Don’t Shoot tee shirts to support the people on the ground in Ferguson. 100% of the sales will go to the organization Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment to help with bail, legal support, supplies, and organizers on the ground.

I just called Memorial Hospital. I spoke to a “Shane” @ 10:55 am Central time 8/19. He said that the hospital is aware of Guthrie’s comments and are addressing them.
I told Shane that until Ms Guthrie’s employment services with he Hospital are terminated they should expect their phones to be bombarded by calls and their inboxes to be be stuffed.
Hit these craccas in their goddamn pockets. It’ s the only language they respond to with any common sense.
I suggest you all get on this phone campaign.
