Reblog if you would watch a Cassandra Cain movie.
Peggielene Bartels, A.K.A. King Peggy, is currently the King of Otuam, Ghana. She was chosen to be one of only three female kings in Ghana, and when she discovered that male chauvinists wanted her to only be a figurehead, she said: “They were treating me like I am a second-class citizen because I am a woman. I said, ‘Hell no, you’re not going to do this to a woman!’” When she encountered corruption and the threat of embezzlement to the royal funds, she declared “I’m going to squeeze their balls so hard their eyes pop!”
King Peggy has maintained her work in Ghana’s embassy in Washington, D.C. while making education affordable in Otuam, installing borehead wells to produce clean drinking water, enforcing incarceration laws to deal with domestic violence, replenishing the royal coffers by taxing Otuam’s fishing industry to improve life in the village, and appointing three women to her council.
“Nobody should tell you, ‘You’re a woman, you can’t do it,’” she insists. “You can do it. Be ready to accept it when the calling comes.”
Quoted from the Spring/Summer 2012 issue of Ms. Magazine.
What a beautiful badass woman.
King Peggy has been on my blog before but this is my goddamn blog and I will have King Peggy on here twice if I want.
MORE FEMALE KINGS.
Always reblog King Peggy, who is on my dash far less than she should be. Did you know she has written a book about her life? It is great, and you should all get right on that if you haven’t already.
Bitches get shit done.

/YELLING LOUDLY AND ENTHUSIASTICALLY
Um. I’m not sure about obsess, and I can only speak personally, but I actually started reading pjo for Nico, and he’s been my fave since day 1. So the love for his character has nothing to do with his sexuality. As far as the shipping goes, you’re right about the HoH revelation being what sparked the recent craze, because I couldn’t ship Nico with ANYONE prior to HoH. It just didn’t feel right. He never really showed an interest in any of the girls, and he hardly interacted with anyone really outside of Hazel. In PJO his main relationship was with Bianca and Percy, and the latter was really a long redemption arc where he learns to stop holding a grudge and where he’s desperate to win back his trust after the Hades incident. I wasn’t even thinking of shipping him then because I never in my wildest dreams imagined that Rick would actually go there for his character - there wasn’t quite enough information in canon yet for me to ship him. But I have to disagree about “angst” and “yaoi” being the main draw of his character. He doesn’t actually angst, at least not in that annoying way so many characters do where their sadness gets in the way of them being a decent person and they burden their feelings onto everyone else. Almost the only indication we get of Nico’s sadness happens because Cupid forces it out of him, and then Jason CONFRONTS him about it, and he basically asks Jason to leave it alone. Not even Hazel knows what’s troubling him - I mean, part of it is his fear of rejection, but I also think he’s selfless in that way where he doesn’t want to let anyone else feel troubled for him. He also doesn’t let his feelings of loneliness or rejection get in the way of the mission - every step of the way he’s only ever wanted to help. He has so many reasons to act like a douche but he doesn’t. If you read his lines, he’s never condescending towards anyone because he knows too well what it feels like to be the underdog and the outcast. I love that he’s such a good brother to Hazel, that he pays attention to the forgotten or sidelined characters, that despite everything he’s been through he’s still the sweet dorky boy we met in the Titan’s Curse, only he’s learned to hide his vulnerabilities better. He’s an incredibly sympathetic and identifiable character even before HOH, even before the HOO series. I don’t think anyone loves him solely because of his sexuality or because he’s the “dark loner” type - I love him because he’s a good kid, he’s thoughtful of others, he earnestly want to help, and I think he deserves love and acceptance.
if you arent pumped about these kick ass woc and that cutie dwarf you can get out of my face
