Vanity Fair’s 2008 ‘Hitchcock Hollywood Portfolio’
Too good not to re-post
Eyes shouldn’t lose that twinkle as they linger.
Hands shouldn’t lose that urge to hold on tighter.
Kisses shouldn’t lose that passion that tends to tingle.
Love shouldn’t be a matter of losing because it doesn’t just go away.
This makes me want to cry.
Same here, buddy. Same here.
Goal: run two 5Ks this summer.
Starting point: if there was a starting line I’d a be a mile behind it.
Morale: Hell, I got this.
I shouldn’t have to tell you how to love me.
And I won’t anymore…
I hope the makers of this are ready to be millionaires
Now stored away as ammo for a later date…
I rarely get on here anymore…
Work, school, work, school, oh let’s add a surgery >here< ,school, work, emotional blah blah blah, don’t forget school, work, work, work.
I need a drink…
and some new shoes ><
I think this is verrrrrrrry important for women and men to see. They have tons of them too.
I love this every time I see it
If I mentioned it then horrible things have happened in the universe.
Bloody hell, Doctor.
That first picture just fills me with such joy and a feeling of hope.
HEY ERIN HEY!
It’s the last picture that gets me. Her eyes are off reading the defense, because she’s not handing off to the RB, that’s a fake. She’s the QB and she’d doing her goddamn job and she’s doing it well. GET IT GIRL.
“Everybody says, ‘What happens when she gets hit?’ ” Gatewood said. “This isn’t a knock on Erin, but she’s bigger than 10 kids on my team. I have a wide receiver that weighs 25 pounds less than her. And the pads she wears are the same as the pads he wears.”
This is the only context in which football matters to me
GET IT GIRL
hahaha omg i thought this to myself too
Seriously, the thing that the coach said.
The media has really fucked with our perceptions of women’s bodies. Women, generally speaking, are way heavier than you think compared to men of comparable height.
i love everything about this photoset, but i especially adore the first pic, with her cheerleader friend helping her tie back her hair. just…y’know, cheerleading is so strongly linked to a particular embodiment of femininity, just as playing football is strongly linked to a particular embodiment of masculinity, and like. girls are always pitted against each other, man, and their different ways of being girls are always pitted against each other.
to me, that first pic overturns a lot of shitty narratives about girlhood and girl friendships in one cute snapshot of a fleeting moment between two friends. idk, i just really love it.

Bolded the line about the pads.
