One of the strangest anti-feminist stereotypes to me – among the Birkenstock-wearing and bra-burning – is the idea that we’re unhappy. Angry. Bitter. Both because the foundation of the insult is the assumption that women should be perpetually happy, and because the truth is that the culture doesn’t actually mind if women are unhappy – so long as we keep it to ourselves.
Women’s distress directed inward – from eating disorders to feelings of inadequacy – keeps the status quo moving along, with diet pills selling through the roof and women asking for promotions far less often than their male counterparts. But when our dissatisfaction takes an outward turn, people get uncomfortable. Then, women’s emotions are “hysterical” or over-the-top. Anything less than a bubbly disposition means that we’re “bitches”. Hell hath no fury like a man who finds a woman displeasing.
Ok but imagine all the guys, despite the initial shock, getting quickly used to the fact that Steve and Bucky are a couple and hey, Captain America isn’t exactly straight, except Tony, because there’s this thing he can’t stop thinking about.
Then on movie night Steve goes make more popcorn for him and Bucky and Tony follows him and when he comes back he’s just upset and blurting out “For the last time, Tony, I did not sleep with your father. Bucky, please, tell him!”
And Bucky says, with a mouthful of popcorn, “Steve did not sleep with your father, Tony” and Steve’s eyebrows scream ‘told you son’ to Tony untill Bucky finishes the sentence with “But I did” and everybody stares at him.
Why the hell was there a black guy in Maleficent?
These people are living in medieval Europe very far detached from any sort of ocean or sea. I’d be amazed if they had even invented a boat yet. Where the hell did the black guy come from?
there were fairies, monsters created from roots, and a fucking crow that could shapeshift into a man in Maleficent and the most unrealistic thing to you in the entire movie was a black guy
did you also just posit that there weren’t any boats in medieval europe
so I had to make a lamp for pottery and sculpture II so I worked on my project all day today and every time people looked at me weird bc they were expecting like a bedazzled lampshades or some shit and I’m not about that so I got finished and went over to my teacher holding this huge motherfucker
