lagerthastormborn:

i am getting tired of hearing people complaining about katheryn being proud of lagertha’s rise in power and they miss “season 1 lagertha because she was a caring mother with a warrior heart.” apparently these people missed season 2, when lagertha took beatings for her son because she wanted bjorn to have everything he could need that she sacrificed her own integrity for this awful man.

they missed when lagertha went back to help ragnar, the man who insulted and humiliated her by cheating on her and other things, because he is her sons father/she still cared for him/their people. how she embraced aslaug, told her to be strong, even if she didn’t owe aslaug anything.

they missed when lagertha gave bjorn her permission to stay with ragnar even if it killed her. how even if she didn’t say it, she was happy he found porunn, because she raised him well and to treat others as he wanted to be treated. when people drool over bjorn, who do you think made him into the morally good character he is? because it sure as hell wasn’t ragnar.

she is a female earl. in those days, that’s incredibly rare. is ragnar the only one allowed to rise? because i don’t see complaints about ragnar’s parenting skills now that he’s king. where are those complaints? because the one leaving the kids to go fight for months and months is ragnar, not lagertha. 

it really kills me that a show is getting female characters RIGHT for once and people still complain. lagertha is not all shields and kicking ass, no, she is a strong female. she has her flaws and she’s vulnerable and all the other things that make a female character interesting. she isn’t one dimensional. lagertha has a right to rise in power, to want more for herself. to climb, like ragnar climbed. to conquer, just like ragnar conquered. even travis said he loves how the show makes women and men EQUAL. that’s what it should be about. why can’t lagertha be a woman of power and be a loving mother too? why can’t she be strong while being vulnerable? i’m a part of both the vikings and got fandom, and let me tell you, it’s a struggle for us got fans when our females get cut/significantly changed because the showrunners can’t have women be strong for more than 2 seconds.

a woman can be a warrior and have a gentle heart. who knew.

George Takei describes the moment when he and his family were sent to an internment camp.

"Another scene I remember now as an adult is every morning at school we started the day with the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag…there was the American flag flying over the camp but I could also see the barbed wire fence and the sentry towers pointing at us from my schoolhouse window as I recited the words ‘With liberty and justice for all’." - George Takei, The Daily Show (July 24, 2014).
