BUT WHY THIS LADY AND NOT THAT LADY??
don’t even do that Marvel fandom
don’t even start with that
pitting the ladies against one another because one has received media recognition another has not yet received is no way to support them
instead you should be asking, why not both ladies
why not all the ladies
why does it have to be a competition
ALL of Marvel’s ladies are equally deserving of getting their own shows or movies or action figures or what have you, so let’s just be glad that one of them actually did manage to get the media recognition she deserves, because you know what
that means she has the opportunity to open up doorways for other lady faves to get exclusive media too
so don’t start on that Peggy versus Sif versus Natasha nonsense, because petty bickering doesn’t get funding for future similar projects
full-throttle support gets funding for future similar projects
GET IT PEGGY
a joke is still made with words that can mean really disgusting hurtful things lol and if no one can tell your jokes apart from hate speech or general jackassery the problem isnt with the people who dont get your “jokes”. because they get your jokes. they get that you think its a joke. but the reality of the situation is if you put together a vile and and repulsive string of words people are totally justified in telling you that
I don’t want it; I don’t need it.
this scene is even more creepy when you realize Spirited Away was a metaphor for the sex industry in Japan
OH FOR FUCK’S SAKE!
NO IT WASN’T, YOU JACKASSES!
"Totoro’s about dead girls!"
"Spirited Away is about sex!"
You know what I hear?
"Maybe if I make up something that sounds smart, people will think I’m smart, even if it’s a complete fucking lie!”
Hayao Miyazaki is a man of values. He’s a man who believes in the innocence of childhood and has a wonderful imagination. He believes in simplicity, kindness, the beauty of nature, and the old ways. He draws on these beliefs and his personal experiences when he makes movies.
Spirited Away was made for some friends of Miyazaki’s. Specifically, the ten-year-old daughters of some friends he invited to stay at his vacation home. It’s fairly common for Miyazaki to decide that he’s going to make movies targeted at a specific age group. Ponyo is for five-year-olds. Spirited Away is meant for ten-year-old girls, but enjoyed by a much wider audience.
I repeat, SPIRITED AWAY WAS MADE FOR TEN-YEAR-OLD GIRLS.
The bathhouse? Not a brothel. Based on a bathhouse in his home town, which he thought was a place of mystery and wonder when he was a kid. That scene where the bathhouse staff has to clean the polluted river spirit? Based on Miyazaki’s own experiences of a town coming together to clean up a river. This scene? It’s about Chihiro not being greedy, because Chihiro is a positive role-model for ten-year-old girls.
The themes of Spirited Away are courage, strength of character, and individuality. ESPECIALLY individuality. That thing where Yubaba takes away peoples’ names and changes their species? That’s her taking away their individuality. Chihiro’s parents are now pigs, not people. Haku’s name has been shortened so he forgets who he is. When Yubaba changes Chihiro’s name, the only Kanji she leaves spell out “Sen”, the Japanese word for “one thousand”, meaning Chihiro is just another pawn of Yubaba’s, not her own person.
You want to seem cool and intelligent? Talk about the movie’s actual themes. Don’t make up this shock-value bullshit for attention.
You stupid motherfuckers.
FUCKING THANK YOU. I get so fucking sick of this shit, stupid motherfuckers trying to pervert movies by claiming there’s dark twisted themes in films where they don’t exist. How about discussing how Chihiro was offered gold and turned it down because she needed to help Haku instead? She turned down a ton of gold to save a friend. THAT’S SOME PRETTY NOBLE SHIT RIGHT THERE, instead of the fucking brothel lies.
you can preach about slut-shaming all you want, but you can’t deny there’s something very wrong with 13 and 14-year old girls going out in skirts and dresses so short they barely cover their asses and shirts with necklines so low they show off cleave they haven’t got yet, drinking and even smoking and hooking up with guys before they even have a substantial knowledge of how sex and sexual relationships work.
Yes, there is something wrong with it. No, you are not better than said girls. And no, it is STILL NOT AN EXCUSE TO SLUT SHAME. Not even 13 year olds with “dresses so short they barely cover their asses”.
There IS a reason why very young girls engage in these types of behaviors, and at the fragile age of 13, it’s not because they are conscientiously reclaiming their sexuality and their body. It’s because they’ve already had their sexual power taken away from them. At 13, they’ve already learned that their sole value as young women is their ability to be sexually desirable to men. It’s a form of self-objectification and it is caused by (not a JUSTIFICATION FOR) sexism.
This has everything to do with the same dysfunctional culture about sexuality that allows people to think slut shame is *~totes cool cuz those girls are dumb hoes~*. People need to STOP revictimizing these young women who are ONLY ACTING ON WHAT THEY’VE LEARNED. Instead of looking down on them and continuing the cycle of telling them that they’re worthless, they need to know that they’re WORTHWHILE. Not just because they are attractive and desirable, but because they’re also strong, smart, funny, interesting, kind, talented, and any number of other traits that someone who is learning to see themselves as an object might not immediately recognize.
Shit like this just really pisses me off.
blaming people who talk shit about the appearance of conventionally attractive women on the body positive movement
this is!! a symptom of!! misogyny!!! patriarchy has so much to gain from every woman being insecure about her appearance and women judging other women!!!!! people who have never even heard of body positive or fat acceptance hate on conventionally attractive women because society has encouraged it since time began!!!!!!! the fact that some people who try to be body positive also have internalized misogyny (that yes, they should work to get rid of) does not mean that it is the origin of that hatred!!!!!!!!!
someone needs to turn down that sass level
Two things to know about Canada!
- We are smart enough to know hot things should be hot.
- We are sorry if you don’t
A few things you need to know about this hot coffee case:
- It wasn’t an issue of the coffee being because no fucking shit coffee is hot, but McDonald’s had over heated their water to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s 121C. Not just hot, but really FUCKING hot. Your fancy Starbucks lattes are brewed to 150 degrees.
- The 79 year old woman had this cup of 250F (121C) coffee between her legs when it spilled so 250F (121C) coffee spilled on her genitals
- She got third degree burns…on her genitals. THIRD DEGREE.
- She had to have skin grafts to repair the damage
- When she sued McDonald’s, it wasn’t for millions of dollars, it was for $20,000 to cover hospital costs and court fees. 20-fucking-thousand.
- McDonald’s settled and changed their heating policy, but not before making her sign a gag order keeping her from talking about this case
- So she had to live on hearing little shits like you call her stupid and money-grubbing, and other horrendous stuff because she dared ask the company in the wrong to fix what they fucked up.
I know I’ve reblogged this before tonight but so help me god, I will keep reblogging this with the proper information so everyone can maybe learn not to be an asshole. Like I said before, next person to mock this woman can have 250F (121C) water poured on their dick or lady dick and see how you like it.
So sit the fuck down, Canada.
Slow clap it out for the hot piece of sass that is my rp partner.
Awww I love the smell of smug superiority and bullshit being owned by facts.
No but the Doctor’s real name is
I don’t get why everyone cares about his name before he graduated and picked a new one. That was over a thousand time lord years ago guys
Like if someone gets married and they change their name you don’t say “Well Sarah Jones isn’t your REAL name, you USED to be Sarah Washington.” He changed his name to The Doctor y’all. It’s The Doctor.
