My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.

And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie.

Feminism

princesskelly9608:

I understand feminism and why so many females support it, but am I the only one who gets super annoyed by it when all that person says is “that’s sexist”or when that’s all someone will talk about. Welcome to the world we live in.

Have you considered: Not being complacent with that being with world we live in?

Like, things can change? That doesn’t have to be the world we live in. We deserve better.

if anyone ever tells you slash fanfiction or trans headcanons are stupid just explain that only 2.4% of all young adult books published in 2013 included LGBT characters and you’re not going to apologize for making your own mirrors

So I have a subscription with my local comic shop for Ms. Marvel. They hold a copy of the new issue for me whenever one comes in.

I went and picked up issue 8 today. (YAY!) 

While I was there, I went ahead and put in a subscription for the new Thor series that starts in October (yes, the one with the new Lady Thor.) We’ll see just how good it is. :)

rynne said: Can we talk about bisexual!Usagi? Because I'm down for her epic destined love with Mamoru, but last week's Crystal episode was Makoto's intro, and you will never convince me that Usagi didn't develop a crush on Makoto from the moment they met. And I don't remember the old anime all that well, but I think I recall a really flirty friendship with Haruka as well.

Usagi is so so so crushing on like…ALL of the other scouts, it ain’t even funny. Bisexual Usagi is the only valid reading of the series honestly.

Why can’t white people be proud of being white without being labeled a bad person? Am I supposed to be ashamed that I’m white? Everyone should be proud of who they are . If you’re black, be proud. If you’re white, be proud….

The person I reblogged literally has a giant picture if Hitler on their blog. They are a nazi. You are agreeing with them. Consider that hard and long.

Thank you, jesus christ. No one understands this.

What is up with all the nazis today?

Protip: if a Nazi is agreeing with you, reconsider.

like duh i dont myself hate feminism/agree with her post, but i wont sit back and let people call Mallory a nazi when she isnt one >:/

Then why does your friend literally have pictures of swastikas on her blog? And quotes about eugenics? And White pride? And “protecting the white race”? And promoting fascism? Because all of those things sound like the things a nazi would do.

I understand wanting to back your friends. I’m not sure I understand being friends with someone who has that kind of content on their blog.

So, there’s a difference between having self confidence in who you are and X Pride. No one is asking you to “feel bad” about being white. Seriously. 

Pride Movements, specifically those of political and social minorities, exist to combat systematic discrimination and marginalization. Black pride, LGBTQIAP+ Pride, these things are about solidarity and visibility in the face of oppression.

It’s not “only gay people are allowed to feel self confidant.” It’s the idea that White people don’t need to rally together to promote rights and freedoms for White people with Pride movements. 

Majority “Pride” betrays a deep lack of understanding about what Pride is actually about and appropriates those movements.

I really, really, fucking hate feminists.

You describe yourself as a “nationalist” in your blog info.

I’m pretty sure that feminism DOESN’T need any nazi support, so, no real loss here.

Just because I love my country doesn’t mean I’m a nazi. That doesn’t even make sense.

ARE YOU FOR REAL?

YOU LITERALLY POSTED THIS ON YOUR BLOG.

HERE. HERE IS THE LINK TO YOUR BLOG WITH THIS IMAGE REBLOGGED ON IT. <— RIGHT THERE. YOUR BLOG. 

You reblogged a sparkly floral print “LITERAL NAZI” image

Here’s your post supporting fascism.  You also have other images of swastikas and “white pride” and “anti-multiculturalism” going on.

But this up here. 

Literally.

You literally have an image on your blog identifying you as a LITERAL NAZI. You can not deny that. You can’t act like you aren’t a nazi, when YOU POSTED AN IMAGE WHERE YOU CALLED YOURSELF A LITERAL NAZI.

I’m laughing so hard. SO HARD.
