Unless you've been living under some sort of big, damp rock, you've probably already heard the news that The Powerpuff Girls (you know, everyone's favorite badass, gender-defying, superhero cartoon from the late '90s) is getting revamped for a new series that will premiere next year on Cartoon Network.
While this is exciting news, we can't help but think of all of the amazing life lessons the original series taught us about not just being fierce, but also about being true to who you are and what you stand for in life. In celebration of the upcoming reboot, here are some of the most fabulous and profound things that PPG taught me about being gay.
1. Not everyone will understand how special and unique you are, and that's all right. The fact that people won't always "get" or understand you doesn't make you any less special or unique.
2. Sometimes a sickening hairflip can make life a whole lot better.
3. It's never okay to judge people based on looks and assumptions.
4. You should never let anyone else define you.
5. And sometimes reinvention can be an amazing thing.
6. You gotta throw a little shade (only when necessary, of course).
7. And sometimes you gotta get down and dirty.
8. But make sure you always have time for a little tea.
9. The looks, the career, the fab life ... you can have it ALL.
10. Things in life, especially when you are LGBT, aren't always going to come easy.
11. But as long as you have a good support system/squad, you're all set.
12. Gender norms are for lames.
13. And last but not least, you are always fabulous no matter what.
