Nancy Wake, who has died in London just before her 99th birthday, was a New Zealander brought up in Australia. She became a nurse, a journalist who interviewed Adolf Hitler, a wealthy French socialite, a British agent and a French resistance leader. She led 7,000 guerrilla fighters in battles against the Nazis in the northern Auvergne, just before the D-Day landings in 1944. On one occasion, she strangled an SS sentry with her bare hands. On another, she cycled 500 miles to replace lost codes. In June 1944, she led her fighters in an attack on the Gestapo headquarters at Montlucon in central France.

Ms Wake was furious the TV series [later made about her life] suggested she had had a love affair with one of her fellow fighters. She was too busy killing Nazis for amorous entanglements, she said.

Nancy recalled later in life that her parachute had snagged in a tree. The French resistance fighter who freed her said he wished all trees bore “such beautiful fruit.” Nancy retorted: “Don’t give me that French shit.”

"Resistance heroine who led 7,000 men against the Nazis," The Independent. (via madelinecoleman)

I don’t like sports, but the Bearcats are my new favorite team.

This guy is perfect.

THIS IS MY FAVORITE THING OH MY GOD

I will always reblog The Bearcats and their lack of a media agent.

This will never not be funny.

Are they bat-jousting?

THE GREATEST OF SPORTS :D

Deconstructing Masculinity & Manhood with Michael Kimmel @ Dartmouth College

YAAAAEEESSSSSSS

You know what I like, and feel is so important? That he doesn’t say “Men thinks those are THEIR positions”. He says “We think those are OUR positions.”

As a male feminist, he still doesn’t exclude himself from the group of men.

#231 Because of Jim Buchy.

365reasonstobeafeminist:

Jim Buchy is a Republican Ohio state legislator who is currently doing his best to illegalise abortion in Ohio with the exception of cases where a woman’s life is in danger. 

In the recent Al Jazeera documentary The Abortion War, Buchy was asked the question:

What do you think makes a woman want to have an abortion?

His reply:

Now, see what happens when we let old white men into politics? 

Sigh.
