My personal answer would be my older sister, who kicked the ass of every obstacle life has thrown at her. As she did so, she balanced a successful career, a fun, beautiful family and an amazing talent in writing. She once had a woman jokingly send her a photo of a teddy bear with a gun to it’s head saying he would be killed if she didn’t post a next chapter of her novel.
In the greater world, Keanu Reeves. He has kicked ass forever and kept his personal side and inner being alive as well. In funny ways and happy times, he has been a constant in a world of social conformity and the louder or more naked the better! The one, true Subtle Badass.
