“To be a strong woman, to be a fierce woman, to be a true woman, to be a leader, to be truly powerful, you have to get to place where you can tolerate people not liking you. And know that when you actually do that, you have to fall back on your own moral imperative in your own moral trunk and say, ‘I don’t care, this is what I believe. This is who I am.’”
– Eve Ensler in the Logo documentary “Beautiful Daughters”, which is about a group of women putting on the first all-transgender production of “The Vagina Monologues.” I stayed up too late watching this movie last night and I can’t stop thinking about this statement.

The two tied the knot in Southern California on March 19 in a joint wedding and centenial birthday party. And while they might be the oldest newlyweds in the world, man, do they still have some moves. After all, Forrest did get down on one knee and ask for Rose’s hand in marriage without any issues. Rose’s advice for making romance last? “Be forgiving and patient and say ‘I love you’ every once in a while,” she explained. I also think these two are poster children for lookalike couples—they have almost identical faces. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
