OH WOE A TON IN DEED
When I hear an atheist say he is a libertarian, I know he’s given absolutely no thought to it other than the fact that he likes the sound of no foreign wars and no drug laws. The aphorism that libertarians are Republicans with bongs is just about spot-on. Thinking Ron Paul is a genius because he’s anti-war and anti-drug laws is like thinking a Big Mac is good for you because it has lettuce and a pickle.
I would be so happy.
hahaha oh my God this isn’t Photoshopped
To me, the message CoverGirl is sending is perfectly clear. It is not “#GirlsCan do anything.” The message is “I want your money and I am prepared to say and sell anything to get it.”
CoverGirl is not unique in the slightest by sending this message. Any company with something to sell wants you to buy it, and the majority are prepared to do anything in the name of marketing. The SPARKteam recently talked about the Aerie ad campaign, whose ‘body positive’ gimmick was to leave their models untouched-up. It created quite a stir, which was of course its aim, but what did it actually do for media’s unattainable standards of beauty? Not much: their untouched models were majority thin, pale and without a single physical blemish; the standards of beauty they promoted were not any less attainable. If it boosts sales, a company will say or do almost anything.
CoverGirl, as a company, is not interested in girl’s empowerment. That doesn’t mean that their campaigns (or the people who run them) don’t have good effects—some of the people behind these campaigns may even be feminists. But CoverGirl is not a person with thoughts and feelings. CoverGirl as company doesn’t care about girls being plagued by unhealthy eating and body dysmorphia because of unattainable beauty standards; CoverGirl as a company does not care how many girls don’t go into STEM subjects because of the anti-female environment; CoverGirl as a company doesn’t care how many girls end up realising their dreams to be a comedian despite being told “girls can’t be funny.” CoverGirl is a company, not a person—its first and last concern is what impacts their sales.

Fem!Scout - April 9th 2014
This is what I imagine Fem!Scout to look like. A total tomboy, she even wears her hair short, wears wide shirts to hide her curves (not that those are impressive anyway :P ), strong legs (she is a runner after all).
Regardless of this being a genderbend, I want this shirt for Scout ingame.
If you are interested in my headcanon background story for her, please click this link right here.
I’ve seen some very cute binary-swapped Scouts in dresses, but I do think it makes most sense for her to wear the same outfit as the canon Scout on the battlefield. She’d look super badass with her hair cropped short too—it’s my personal headcanon that she used to wear it long, back in Boston, but as soon as she got to Teufort she made Soldier buzz her down to a regimentation crew cut. She’s just ‘one of the boys’ to her team; after the first week or so she stopped being ‘the girl’ and became ‘the Scout,’ and by now none of her teammates would recognise her in a dress. Also, she never did learn to walk in heels. :p
