favorite endgames * the seven queendoms | (3) Shireen Baratheon, the Queen of Steel, Protector of the Stormlands and Lady of Storm’s End.
Shireen was but a little girl cowering behind veils and the protection of her mother when her father died and she had to step up to his claim. When she took what was rightfully hers as the last trueborn Baratheon she took off her veil and turned her weakness into her strength. The Queen of Steel, they called her when they put a crown on her head. After her stubborn nature, her ruthless determination and the streaks of death on her cheek. Queen Shireen led her men into battle, not as a whimpering child, but as a woman grown, with conviction in her mind and a thirst for victory in her blood. Shireen taught the realm that the Baratheon name was not at its end. And that hers was the fury.
"Women read comics. Anyone at all engaged in social media knows this. Women read comics and are a driving force behind fandom. I think I could call them the driving force behind fandom and put up a convincing argument. Just think about it: what fandoms have driven America crazy in the last decade? Could anyone dissuade me from saying that they were Harry Potter, Twilight and the Hunger Games? “Avatar” may have put butts in theater seats, but you don’t hear about it… ever. No one is immersed in the world of “Avatar” except James Cameron and people who enjoy wearing Na’vi Zentai suits. “The Avengers” was pretty darn huge and, if Tumblr is any indication, a whopping portion of the people driving that fandom online do not possess a Y chromosome. Women engage in fandom to levels that men do not. When women get behind something, their sheer numbers and passion force it into the mainstream. That’s why you can name the actor who plays that werewolf kid in “Twilight” and probably sing at least the chorus to one Justin Bieber song. What do tween boys like? I have no clue. Sports? Probably sports."

and yet men remain the most marketed demographic for just about everything.
I’m pretty sure the only men who spend more time thinking about DC than women on Tumblr are the men who actually work there.
people still act fucking surprised when women show up for genre shit
