Gwendoline Christie is the actress for Brienne of Tarth in Game of Thrones. She stands at 6 feet 3 inches tall and took swordfighting, horseriding, and stagefighting lessons for her part, as well as gaining 14 pounds of muscle, to accurately portray Brienne. (x)

She was also terrified of cutting her hair because she’d spent her life believing it was one of the only things that would make people see her as feminine despite her height. In an interview with TV Guide she said:

I struggled for a long time with [cutting] my hair, but then I’m grateful for the opportunity to realize that femininity doesn’t have to come from hair or any of those traditional female archetypes of appearance, So, that’s been exciting actually. I can’t speak with any kind of authority whatsoever because I’m just an actor and I only have my opinions, but I do think it’s really refreshing to have a woman depicted on a mainstream TV show that doesn’t obey typical aesthetics of females and the way they have been portrayed in the past. And I’m really excited to be portraying one of those women. And I hope that her popularity signals a greater expansion of people’s views about men and women and that gender types can be more flexible.

I know, I didn’t make the suit myself, but you honestly don’t want me to try, because I would manage to break the sewing machine, both my hands and possibly a puppy or two. I quite like the result, except the wig needs some more cutting and I want to try to make real bullet cuffs.

And yes, that is a bright green water pistol, you’re welcome.

Oh and btw… I think my booty looks hella fine in this suit if I may say so…

“My name is Emelie Crecco, I’m 20 years old and I have cystic fibrosis. CF affects the lungs (as of many organs in the body) because of this I have a handicapped sticker. I’m not one to “abuse” the sticker, meaning I use it when I’m having a “bad day” (some days its a little harder to breathe). Today was HOT so I needed to use my sticker. I was running errands all day around my town, I pulled into a handicapped spot, placed the sticker in my mirror and continued into the store. Upon returning to my car I found a note written by someone, it said “Shame on you, you are NOT handicapped. You have taken a space that could have been used by an actually handicapped person. You are a selfish young lady.” I was LIVID. How can someone be so ignorant and cowardly? They clearly saw me walk out of my car, why not approach me? Not all handicaps are visible. I would love for you to share this story. It would help spread awareness for CF, but it would help open people’s minds to what handicapped really is.  Thank you for your time” ~Emelie Crecco

A friend of mine fell over 20 feet and basically broke half his ribs, punctured his lung, broke his arm in three places that required many surgeries to fix and messed up a nerve in his leg. He had to walk with a cane for a long time after it and some lady in a restaurant thought he was just walking with a cane for the hell of it and she ripped it from his hands and grabbed his messed up arm and shook him and told him he was an awful human being for pretending to be handicapped. What the fuck people?

This is what real ableism looks like.

I have ulcerative colitis, an autoimmune disorder which causes my body to attack my colon, and I qualify for one of those stickers. I’m scared to get one, though, because I look healthy and whole.-Orange

A mutual friend of mine’s mother has severe fibromyalgia (that gives her a handicapped pass) and as she was walking to her car after buying her groceries, a man actually lunged at her and started yelling at her about her “not looking handicapped”. It left her mother shaking and crying, of course, and it just makes me so angry how awful and ignorant some people can be. 

Not all handicaps are visible
Can I just pin this sentence on every lamppost all over the planet please


This is why I walk with my cane at all times. I have two types of rheumatic diseases that cause inflamation of my joints and glands and this makes me pretty much exhausted at all times, next to being unable to walk long distances. After I applied for a handicapped sticker I had to show up for an interrogation at the city hall because they wanted to find out if I wasn’t going to abuse it. There I was, sitting across three middle aged and older people asking me if I really needed the sticker. A doctor had already confirmed that I did, but the lady on this board said that she worried that I would take parking spots from old people and this wasn’t fair because then I would ruin their lives and blablabla… She was worried about old people not being able to park but not about a young woman who can’t live a normal life for the rest of her fucking life.This is also the reason that I do not dare to go outside without my cane, because people are not very understanding of invisible diseases. I use it as a big flashing arrow, so people know I’m sick.And yeah… let’s forget about the time that this guy in my school thought I was trying to make a fashion statement with my cane…
