The “Graffiti alphabet” created and marketed by Palm, Inc. (1993) for text-entry with a stylus. (ᔥbetaknowledge)

I thought I was going to go crazy if I had to hear one more person trying to defend the inherent feminist-y goodness of Disney heroines. They all suck. I love you Belle, but get a fucking backbone. Mulan, what the fuck is wrong with you? The emperor wanted you to be his advisor and you declined so you could go mope on a bench at home? What the fuck is that?
