My friend Maria being awesome in CAT PRINT PANTS. Also, just take a look at her FUCKING CAT it is so adorbsy.
So we have manifested this fantastic character on Covert Affairs, a super-cheesy spy show I watch at the gym. Her name is Linda Wells and she says stuff like:
“It diminishes the both of us when you run to a man to help solve our problems.”
And has conversations like:
“I will treat you as an equal. One of Langley’s many double standards that does not exist in my division is a false hierarchy.”
“Are there others?”
“Yes. For example male operatives are encouraged to sleep with assets for intel, females, not so much. They’re worried we’ll get too emotional.”
“No one has ever put it that way before.”
“That’s because you’re a woman.”
Obvie all the male spies hate her. She does seem nuts, apart from her engaging misandry, but working collectively within the CIA and hating men is totally ace insurrection.
She’s also the only female character who consistently wears pants.
ETA: I forgot, I love this photo because you can see my hand which is only fair since she is our creation.
I hate being wrong, but not that much when it’s this—Charlotte Reid (R-Ill), December 1969, the first woman to wear pants on the floor of the United States Congress.
The 56-year-old widow, a striking brunette who once sang on Don McNeill’s Breakfast Club under the name of Annette King, showed up on the House floor in a black wool, bell-bottomed pantsuit.
What to wear to your alimony hearing/student loan appointment/to apply for unemployment/etc? Obvie Hawaiian money print pants.
imjasondiamond brilliantly described this aesthetic as “acid bummer” but you know that I am all about the transformative power of PANTS, even for the mens.
