Legally Blonde will always be my favorite movie for a variety of reasons.
You start out with Elle being dumped by her boyfriend, a situation that anyone would be rightly distraught over.
Then she pulls a complete 180 and just says "fuck crying, I'm gonna get into Harvard law school to prove I'm fabulous and amazing".
She's seen as a joke at Harvard and people look down on her just because she seems like your stereotypical "dumb blonde with Daddy's money".
But she successfully proves them wrong and ends up becoming a fabulous lawyer on her own terms, not the ones people set out for her.
As a very stereotypically feminine girl who's also very gay and doesn't fit the typical "lesbian stereotype", this movie resonates with me on another level.
Elle never loses sight of what makes her unique. She's always confident in her style and in her mannerisms. Although she has moments of questioning her self-worth while at Harvard, she always stays true to who she is.
She never "fits in" with the Harvard crowd, which is what makes her such an inspiring character. She shows female-identifying people that you can still be feminine and accomplish your goals. Wearing pink and skirts and high heels doesn't make you weak. If anything, it makes you stronger because you're simply being yourself.
Elle is an amazing role model for young people, regardless of whether you identify as female or not. She shows that it's perfectly okay to be yourself, even in times when it's much easier to simply blend in with the crowd. You can do whatever you put your mind to, and people have no right to underestimate you simply by the clothes you wear or the things you like.

A list of girls I’ve seen on tv who’ve made me look respectfully
1. The girl on the left from the Disney movie rip girls. When I was a kid I thought she was really cool. I think her name was Gia? There’s no pic on IMDb so...... there was a scene when she dressed a bit more feminine and I was like 😳
2. Cassie in the music video for “The boys” by Nicki Minaj. The duality is insane!
3. Florence Welch in the sweet nothings music video. I mean......look at her
4. Swanee Capps. That’s it that’s the tweet
5. Amber liu from Kpop group Fx
Ps. Shout out to all the lesbians and bi girls I went to highschool with. They were always so nice to me!!
