Though Mean Girls was rated PG-13 for “sexual content, language, and some teen partying,” that was a rating Paramount had to fight for, says Waters. “We had lots of battles with the ratings board on the movie. There was the line, ‘Amber D’Lessio gave a blow job to a hot dog,’ which eventually became ‘Amber D’Lessio made out with a hot dog.’ Which is somehow weirder! That’s the thing we found: When you’re trying to make a joke obey the rules and not use any bad words, it can actually become seamier, even.” Still, there were some things that Waters simply refused to change. “The line in the sand that I drew was the joke about the wide-set vagina. The ratings board said, ‘We can’t give you a PG-13 unless you cut that line.’ We ended up playing the card that the ratings board was sexist, because Anchorman had just come out, and Ron Burgundy had an erection in one scene, and that was PG-13. We told them, ‘You’re only saying this because it’s a girl, and she’s talking about a part of her anatomy. There’s no sexual context whatsoever, and to say this is restrictive to an audience of girls is demeaning to all women.’ And they eventually had to back down.”

But does it matter that two middle-aged men with very large platforms were sitting at a table pathologising teenage girls’ sexuality – and making a whole load of potentially harmful assumptions about a topic they know literally nothing about? Absolutely.

Finally, a mainstream media article that presents the human side of fandom, and talks about why it’s important to have alternative forms of media.

It was easy to get me to do this TV show. All the roles I’ve ever gotten, you’ve seen the roles I’ve gotten. They’ve been wonderful but so many of them have been downtrodden. They’ve been women who are pretty much asexual, they haven’t been realized, they have careers but no names. And all of a sudden I was given this opportunity to play someone sexy, mysterious, someone complicated. And it was a chance to use my craft. It was a chance to transform. It was a chance to surprise myself and the public. And I took it. - Viola Davis

Daisy Buchanan from The Great Gatsby.

It’s not supposed to be Mia Farror or Carey Mulligan from the movie, but Daisy from the book. I recently re-read this classic and I liked it even more than when I first read it in high school. I think I understand who these people are better now that I’m older. What a great book, it really transcends time.

Here are a few snapshot of the steps I took. First, I make a rough sketch with pencil. Then I scan and import it to photoshop. I do the final cleaned up pencil line and on to the color on Photoshop. I layer with water color texture on top to give more natural look at the end.

The loneliest moment in someone’s life is when they are watching their whole world fall apart, and all they can do is stare blankly.
