I want to see more girl monsters. Girl giants, girl dragons, hulks & trolls. Scylla and hydra. Girl monsters who are huge and whole. Teeth and plush fur and long muscled tails. Heads enough to see you anywhere. Gleaming green or brown. But girl monsters are usually zombies or vampires. Pale and thin, bleeding or dead. Not Lady Lazarus, not a phoenix from the ash. I want to see how you get strong without being broken first. Get strong and stay strong. Get big and bigger.
I’d especially like to see more girl monsters who are anything but mothers protecting their babies or walking wombs craving to be filled.
#’getting strong without being broken first’ is like all i want from anything but especially girl monster stories #stop making women small before you let them be big #i am tired of revenge stories #i am tired of all my heroines hurting
I feel some kind of way about this idea of brown monster girls as a girl who is monstrous for being brown. That’s before I get into my feels about the way black women are often presented as strong beasts of burden that can’t be broken & who are fit for any attack because we’re not really human in the first place.
