    "It’s important for little girls to know not every story has to be a love story and for boys to know that soldiers aren’t the only ones to triumph in war. "

    — Guilermo Del Toro - How Pacific Rim saved his life

    “I wanted to show that men and women can be friends without having a relationship,” says del Toro of the relationship between the two main characters Mako (played by Japanese actress Rinko Kikuchi) and Raleigh (“Sons of Anarchy” star Charlie Hunnam). “Theirs is a story about partnership, equality and a strong bond between partners. It’s important for little girls to know not every story has to be a love story and for boys to know that soldiers aren’t the only ones to triumph in war.”

    "

    A boy sprawled next to me on the bus, elbows out, knee pointing sharp into my thigh.
    He frowned at me when I uncrossed my legs, unfolded my hands
    and splayed out like boys are taught to: all big, loose limbs.
    I made sure to jab him in the side with my pretty little sharp purse.
    At first he opened his mouth like I expected him to, but instead of speaking up he sat there, quiet, and took it for the whole bus ride.
    Like a girl.

    Once, a boy said my anger was cute, and he laughed,
    and I remember thinking that I should sit there and take it,
    because it isn’t ladylike to cause a scene and girls aren’t supposed to raise their voices.
    But then he laughed again and all I saw
    was my pretty little sharp nails digging into his cheek
    before drawing back and making a horribly unladylike fist.
    (my teacher informed me later that there is no ladylike way of making a fist.)

    When we were both in the principal’s office twenty minutes later
    him with a bloody mouth and cheek, me with skinned knuckles,
    I tried to explain in words that I didn’t have yet
    that I was tired of having my emotions not taken seriously
    just because I’m a girl.

    Girls are taught: be small, so boys can be big.
    Don’t take up any more space than absolutely necessary.
    Be small and smooth with soft edges
    and hold in the howling when they touch you and it hurts:
    the sandpaper scrape of their body hair that we would be shamed for having,
    the greedy hands that press too hard and too often take without asking permission.

    Girls are taught: be quiet and unimposing and oh so small
    when they heckle you with their big voices from the window of a car,
    because it’s rude to scream curse words back at them, and they’d just laugh anyway.
    We’re taught to pin on smiles for the boys who jeer at us on the street
    who see us as convenient bodies instead of people.

    Girls are taught: hush, be hairless and small and soft,
    so we sit there and take it and hold in the howling,
    pretend to be obedient lapdogs instead of the wolves we are.
    We pin pretty little sharp smiles on our faces instead of opening our mouths,
    because if we do we get accused of silly women emotions
    blowing everything out of proportion with our PMS, we get
    condescending pet names and not-so-discreet eyerolls.

    Once, I got told I punched like a girl.
    I told him, Good. I hope my pretty little sharp rings leave scars.
