Strength and Determination Wins the Fight

A description of a battle-scene in Lord of the Rings

Thick bands of cauldron black clouds stretched across the Western half of a mid-afternoon sky. Just to its east, fractures of bright golden rays of sun poked through white clouds, which cast shadows on the land underneath. A field the size of three football fields blanketed the land’s rough soil.

A legion of human soldiers on horseback extended across the eastern half of the field. Each soldier wore rusted metal armor decorated with integrated intricate designs. They held mighty weapons such as swords and spears.

The soldiers in the forefront of this abundant mass leapt from their horses and knelt to the dense ground. With their knees planted firmly, they stabbed their long swords deep into the ground. Shortly after, they angrily ripped them out and climbed back onto their horses. One soldier, in particular, stared across the field with glazed-over eyes at the oncoming enemies. With her mouth agape, she continuously breathed in, unable to exhale due to the sensation of her palpitating heart. Nearby, a young wide-eyed soldier flashed a stiff grin in her direction.

The commanding officer of this legion charged down the center of the field. He clashed swords with those soldiers at the front of the mass. At the same time, some soldiers blew into bugles while others screamed with all their might. All the soldiers were ready to charge.

Step by step, they slowly neared the threat of their enemy, the Orcs. As they crept forward, the Orcs looked at them with red eyes. The Orcs infested the entire West end of the field, creating a mass about two times larger than that of the humans. The small cauliflower-like beasts growled with their heads tilted back. Their dirty white skin, mangled and embarked with many ridges and grooves, bubbled over their harsh round eyes causing them to be only partially visible. Like the humans, they wore armor and held swords and spears. As the humans cautiously approached, the Orcs fired their spears.

The spears flew rapidly across the field before impaling the humans. Molten-red blood splashed out of their skin where the spear had pierced. The speedy pace of the spears caused intense pain which resulted in some soldiers jolting from their horses.

The unwounded humans, however, charged rapidly at the Orcs, which caught the Orcs by surprise. The closer the humans got to them, the faster they ran. They threw flags into the air as they molded into an arrow configuration, warning the Orcs that they exuded strength and dominance. They moved quickly and did not stop. They charged right through the mass of Orcs, which toppled them over, smashing them into the ground.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
