Catwoman Was Just Revealed To Be Bisexual In Newest Comic

http://ift.tt/1DiFMSE

Writer Genevieve Valentine wrote a blog post confirming the sexuality of the original Catwoman, Selina Kyle.

"She's flirted around it – often quite literally – for years now; for me, this wasn't a revelation so much as a confirmation," Valentine wrote. She calls her "canon bisexual," which means the plotline around her sexuality will continue.

DC Comics

"Eiko seemed like the right person: intelligent, driven, in that uncanny valley of Almost Catwoman," Valentine said of her decision. "And [she] knows enough about Selina that their honesty has become something of a shelter in a situation that's getting increasingly dishonest for everybody involved."

"Gotham's" Anthony Carrigan Talks Acting, Alopecia, And Learning To Love His Look

http://ift.tt/1zmqBFE

The alopecian actor stopped by BuzzFeed to share his thoughts on body positivity.

David Bertozzi/ BuzzFeed

You'd recognize Anthony Carrigan if you saw him on TV, right? Not necessarily. The up-and-coming actor has been popping up in primetime network TV dramas for several years now, but only recently while feeling (and looking) like himself. We spoke to the actor, currently starring as Victor Zsasz on Gotham, about his career, his alopecia areata — a condition that causes the loss of his hair, eyebrows, and even eyelashes — and what body image means to him, personally and professionally.

How long have you had alopecia?

AC: I've had alopecia since I was 3, so quite a few years. I grew up with it and it was always very manageable. I only had spots that were [relatively small] so I always covered it up. I was always very embarrassed about it. Even when I was in my 20s, very few of my friends even knew that I had alopecia. I kept it under wraps. I didn't want to let anyone know and I didn't want it to affect my career or the possibility of me getting hired for a job. So I covered up. I got out of school and got some good jobs, but at that point it started getting worse.

There was one point where I was doing a job and we had millions of viewers every week, it was a TV job, and I lost half my scalp and both eyebrows and the majority of my eyelashes. I was covering up in order to look like this character. It was pretty terrifying to have to keep that secret and pretend like I looked this way, that I looked normal when I just didn't. I was doing red carpet events and putting on my eyebrows before going out there and hoping that no one would notice. It's a really weird thing to be seen while trying not to be seen. It's a very strange thing.

So is that the point when you knew your hair was all going to go?

AC: Yeah, I knew that was a possibility but I was terrified of what that was going to look like. I always avoided the way that I look naturally. Also at that period of my life I was being encouraged to cover up as well by certain friends, certain family, certain business people. They thought I should cover it up but it didn't feel right, so eventually – and it took a long time – I got to the point where I didn't care anymore. I wanted to just feel OK with the way that I looked so I shaved my head and I stopped wearing makeup.

Immediately I started booking work, but the work was just a byproduct. The most important thing was that I just felt so good to not have to hide anymore, to own the way that I am and feel really good about it, feel really positive about the way that I look. That took a lot of work. It wasn't an overnight thing. It was very incremental. It took a lot of positivity and a lot of compassion and reinforcement.

I eventually got to this place where I was proud of the way that I look. I thought that it was super cool and unique and strange and different. As soon as I embraced that and started carrying myself in that way, all of a sudden that's how everyone began to see me. So that was great!

A Definitive Ranking Of How Dead The Parents Of Disney Princesses Are

http://ift.tt/1apJClS

Literally the LAST thing you should do is give birth to a Disney princess.

Merida. Brave

Merida. Brave

Status: Both parents alive.

Merida's parents are arguably the least dead of any Disney princess of all time, and yet she still pretty much spends 80% of the movie ragging on them, not to mention gets her mom turned into a freaking BEAR and almost kills her. Disney doesn't have any trouble killing parents, girlfriend! They don't need your help!

Walt Disney Pictures / Via animated-disney-gifs.tumblr.com

Mulan, Mulan

Mulan, Mulan

Status: Both parents alive.

And for good reason, because Mulan hacked off all her hair, ran away from home and crane-kicked a bunch of Huns for the sole purpose of keeping her old timer dad alive. If that man had not been breathing when she returned we all would have gone ape shit.

Walt Disney Pictures / Via care2.com

Aurora, Sleeping Beauty

Aurora, Sleeping Beauty

Status: Both parents alive.

In her defense, though, she was basically raised by a bunch of highly distractible fairies in the woods while her 'rents chilled out on their swag-tastic thrones in a castle. Apparently when your kid gets cursed you get a free parenting pass for sixteen years. #LIFEHACK.

Walt Disney Pictures / Via avahelps.tumblr.com

Rapunzel, Tangled

Rapunzel, Tangled

Status: Both parents alive.

But she didn't actually KNOW this until her eighteenth birthday, when they pretty much had no legal claim of guardianship over her. Also she was raised by a crazy witch lady who pretended to be her mom so could exploit her magic hair for free Botox. She is the most parent-less of all the Disney princesses who have both parents alive.
