New York Post

I love this

do u understand how much this means

And I don’t think it is a happy accident at all.  Look at the two other captions that are visible.  ‘Heidi Klum is a supermodel-turned-superhero in this caped Zac Posen gown.’  ‘Camila Alves works Zuhair Murad like it’s her job.’  Between the two there is only one word that refers to the gender of the person.  In Laverne Cox’s caption, there are two and they both are words almost exclusively reserved for what is perceived as the height of femininity.  (‘Goddess’ is referring to the dress but it is only called a ‘goddess gown’ because it was made for a goddess.)  Hell, Heidi Klum and Camila Alves probably have been called a ‘goddess’ or a ‘babe’ in publications.  And here she is, a person who has had to publicly defend her right to identify as a woman, in a major publication that has placed her between two models and Laverne Cox is the one being called a babe and goddess.

On Sep 13, 1944, a princess from India lay dead at Dachau concentration camp. She had been tortured by the Nazis, then shot in the head. Her name was Noor Inayat Khan. The Germans knew her only as Nora Baker, a British spy who had gone into occupied France using the code name Madeline. She carried her transmitter from safe house to safe house with the Gestapo trailing her, providing communications for her Resistance unit.

Oh my God, yes. Let’s talk about Noor Inayat Khan.
Wireless operators in France had a life expectancy of six weeks. Noor was actively transmitting for over three times as long.
While she was in France, every other wireless operator in her network was slowly picked off until she was the last radio link between London and Paris. It was “the most dangerous and important post in France”.  
She was offered a way back to Britain and refused.
In fact, in her transmissions to London, she once said that she was having the time of her life, and thanked them for giving her the opportunity to do this.
She was captured by the Gestapo, but never gave up: she made three attempt escapes. One involved asking to take a bath, insisting on being allowed to close the door to preserve her modesty, and then clambering onto the roof of the Gestapo HQ in Paris.
Her last word before being shot was, “Liberté!”

The term BAMF was coined for such persons. 

Her entire life, and her mother’s life as well, are FASCINATING. A Royal, Muslim, Anglo-Indian woman in WWII… Could we have a sweeping FACTUAL movie please. Like now?

Yet another story I would like to read.

You guys! There IS A MOVIE!
