If you don’t watch “Brooklyn 99,” you’ve shortchanged yourself by missing out on Rosa Diaz. Diaz, played by Stephanie Beatriz, is a take-no-shit detective with a deadpan take on pretty much everything. What I particularly love about Beatriz’s character is the way she turns stereotypes about women on their head. She’s deeply uncomfortable with emotions (as am I, so I adore this about her). Children baffle her, and she treats them like foreign objects. Best of all, she’s rarely lacking in self-confidence. She’s a loyal friend and intense lover, but rarely reveals these things about herself. Beatriz plays her to perfection.
Detective Rosa Diaz, Tenacious Feminist salutes you as a hero to feminists everywhere.
You’ve got a few minutes to kill until the 99 starts–entertain yourself with these Rosa Diaz gems, collected at Buzzfeed.
They’ve arrived, badgers! While you can enter our May giveaway to win a Tenacious Feminist sticker, you can also pick them up here for $2. We’ll send 25% of all sales to Planned Parenthood so that we can put our money where our keyboard is. The price also includes first-class shipping.
Stickers are 3.5″ x 4″ and made of water-resistant vinyl so they should be good on your car, kayak, or computer. Take the tenacious honey badger with you wherever you go.
Today we’re partnering with Heartificial to bring you a pretty stellar feminist giveaway. We’ve had a long chat with Heartificial’s Kasio and feel that this “Ovaries Before Brovaries” brooch is just the thing you tenacious badgers would love. I have my own, and I wear it constantly in homage to my beloved Leslie Knope.
You’ll get the pin along with the very first Tenacious Feminist sticker, which will be up for sale later today.
How to enter?
You need to share Tenacious Feminist with your crew! We’re on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. Give us a follow and share: you’ll get an entry for each share–one for each platform–for a total of three possible entries. I’ll enter y’all into a spreadsheet and use a Random Number Generator to choose a winner, whom I’ll contact using the platform they used to enter.
Contest closes next Monday, 5/15! Goodies will ship the next day.
