Women hating on other women! WHY?

Hey guys and gals, this post is going to be on something that I feel very strongly about. Girls hating on other girls. A rather nasty comment left on a YouTube video by the SacconeJolys provoked me to write this post. A couple of weeks ago, I was watching a vlog by the Irish couple and their adorable daughter and I noticed an argument in the comment section where a woman had commented on Anna's looks. Now, this is just an example, so if you don't know these vloggers (although I suggest that you check them out), it doesn't matter.

I was disgusted by this comment. It was completely unnecessary and just plain rude and judging by the replies, many others agreed with me. This woman wasn't commenting on anything other than her looks and there are so many reasons why this got to me:

1. Why do people feel that it is okay to say horrible things to people over the internet that they would never say to them face to face?
2. It was just disgusting, vile and rather hypocritical as no one's perfect.
3. Why do so many bitchy comments directed at women youtubers come from other women ? We should be supporting each other and not being bitches just because we don't like people's looks. IT'S SO RUDE.

Now, I am not saying that men aren't horrible in the comments section. I'm just focussing on girl on girl hate in this post. To quote Tina Fey in Mean Girls: "you all have got to stop calling each other sluts and whore. It just makes it okay for guys to call you sluts and whores." And it's true. If guys hear us saying this stuff to each other, they will say it too.

I hear it all the time: girls constantly bitching about each other (I'm guilty of it myself). But why oh why do girls bitch about each other's looks? Don't we all have aspects of ourselves that we dislike? Okay, if someone's pissed you off, just tell them, have it out and be done with it. But saying something like "her teeth are so crooked" or "she's so ugly". WHY? How does it effect you (I mean the "you" in general here, haha) in any way? At all. Ever.

I feel like this is one of those posts where I am going to think of more things to say after I've posted it so I might add to this. For now, peace out xxx

Game of Thrones 30 Day Challenge (Day Thirty)

30. Favourite book/episode?

Well, I haven't read all of the books so I can't say. This is a tricky one because I like a lot of the earlier episodes when all of the characters are still alive haha. However, I think I'll go with season 3, ep. 4 when Daenerys buys the unsullied. She's just so badass in that episode. OH and I also like the episode when she goes to find her dragons and sees Khal Drogo and their son, it's so lovely. 

So that concludes this 30 Day Challenge, I hope you enjoyed it and I will be back soon with more posts.

Game of Thrones 30 Day Challenge (Day Twenty-nine)

29. Lord of the Rings or A Game of Thrones?

Game of Thrones, obviously. I can appreciate LotR, but I don't like it that much.

Game of Thrones 30 Day Challenge (Day Twenty-eight)

28. Give some advice to one of the characters.

Sansa, don't trust anyone. And for Pete's sake woman, get yo' ass out of King's Landing, I'm surprised you've lasted this long.

Game of Thrones 30 Day Challenge (Day Twenty-three)

23. Tyrion, Cersei, Jaime: Marry, fuck or throw off a cliff - what would you do?

Throw Cersei off a cliff, for sure. Probably fuck (how crass?!) Jaime and marry Tyrion.

Game of Thrones 30 Day Challenge (Day Twenty-two)

22. Make a graphic of your favourite ship.

I'm not sure that I like all these creative ones, they require way too much effort. Also, I don't know if I can even make one without it looking shit. 

This is not mine, ha.

Game of Thrones 30 Day Challenge (Day Twenty-one)

21. Link to a GoT-based blog.

Well, I got the questions to the challenge from this one, so it seems only fair :) It's tumblr though.

Game of Thrones 30 Day Challenge (Day Twenty)

20. What's the most interesting thing about GoT?

Probably that it's loosely based on the war of the roses which makes it seem more real. Also, each character has depth which makes them all very interesting.

Game of Thrones 30 Day Challenge (Day Nineteen)

19. Invent a character that would fit into GoT.

This isn't something that I really think about, but if Catelyn and Ned had another child (before he had died) then it would be a girl called Helena, or something ending with an 'a' just because Sansa and Arya do, haha.

Game of Thrones 30 Day Challenge (Day Sixteen)

So apparently day 15 was a break day or something.

16. Make a graphic advertising GoT.

Game of Thrones 30 Day Challenge (Day Fourteen)

14. Who do you think Jon Snow's parents are?

Ned... and I think a woman named Wylla is mentioned in the books. However, there is a theory that he is part Targaryen and Eddard Stark is covering up that Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen had a child together. 

Who really cares though? Jon Snow is one fine looking man.

Game of Thrones 30 Day Challenge (Day Twelve)

12. If there was a crossover, who would you ship?

I dunno... Peeta and Sansa. I feel like they would be a good couple and I preferred Katniss and Gale.

Game of Thrones 30 Day Challenge (Day Ten)

10. If you had a direwolf, what would you name it?

I don't know... But my favourite is Ghost, I think that it's such a good name for a direwolf.

Game of Thrones 30 Day Challenge (Day Eight)

8. Favourite moment in the books/TV show?

I haven't read all of the books, but my favourite moment of the TV series is when Daenerys buys the slave soldiers and says "I am Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryan, of the blood of Old Valyria. Valyrian is my mother tongue."

Game of Thrones 30 Day Challenge (Day Seven)

7. Link to a fanvideo you like.

I was trying to find a mean girls and GoT mash up, but the ones I found weren't that good so here's a more serious one that I like:

Game of Thrones 30 Day Challenge (Day Four)

4. Favourite house? (e.g. Stark, Lannister).

Tyrell, because the Grandma is badass. Stark's alright though.

Game of Thrones 30 Day Challenge (Day Three)

3. Where would you want to live in the GoT world?

Highgarden sounds quite nice. I wouldn't mind living in the North, but not past the wall.

Game of Thrones 30 Day Challenge (Day Two)

2. Favourite quote relating to GoT?

This is so tricky! There are quite a few from Tyrion Lannister which are hilarious (and very inappropriate). But I really like this one:

"Woman? Is that meant to insult me? I would return the slap if I took you for a man." - Daenerys Targaryen.

It's just brilliant.

Game of Thrones 30 Day Challenge (Day One)


So before I start this post, I'm just giving a quick shout out to RĂ©anne Gareau who mentioned my Youtube videos in her blog. She has just started doing Youtube videos and has a blog. I’m going to leave her links here if you want to check them out.

I love Game of Thrones. I’ve watched all three seasons so far and I’ve just started reading the first book too. Seeing as I’m quite bad at blogging I’m doing a 30 day challenge which will make me post every day, even though they will be quite short. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it and let me know your answers to the questions in the comment section :)

1.Favourite character from book/show?

Daenerys Targaryen/Stormborn hands down. Every time I watch the TV show or read the book I can’t wait to get to her scene/chapter. She’s the most interesting character and she kicks some ass (also, I really like how she does her hair). In my opinion, she’s the strongest female character in the series (books and tv) and there are some pretty adamant/relentless women in GoT.
