things I think about:
now, you might think a disagreement of such proportions would send fandom into a tailspin. whom do you believe? MUST WE PICK SIDES? IS THIS WHAT THE PLOT OF CIVIL WAR IS REALLY ABOUT?
luckily, the answer is simple
Steve and Peggy disagree on whether or not oral counts
yea sexuality is fluid but like, not everyone’s sexuality has the same amount of fluidity, as in don’t go up to a lesbian and tell her “hey, maybe someday you’ll be attracted to men”
I keep thinking how much more powerful the Spiderman origin story would be if Peter Parker was an African American kid, whose Uncle Ben was shot by police while being arrested for a minor parking infraction. There is no formal investigation, and Peter decides to put himself on the line to prevent it happening again. He tackles the white crimes that go unpunished, punishes POC criminals fairly. He is the leveler, always fighting to be without bias, to be just. To protect people like his uncle.
This not only mirrors so much of what’s happening in America, but feeds right into the complex relationship between Spiderman, the authorities and the media.
Peter Parker is a brilliant student, awkward, a nerd, but is branded a thug, a gang member, a criminal, because of his appearance. The media latch on to that and misre present him totally.
The police, humilitated by the fact that he refuses to work with them and often punishes cops themselves for brutalizing innocent people, or guilty people who still deserve better treatment than they get, attempt to hunt him down.

Men will say confidence is the sexiest thing about a woman..until that woman stands up for herself, until that woman has her own opinions, until that woman doesn’t need your compliments to make herself feel beautiful
Really we need to give a hand to the Mad Max marketing team for how they advertised because that’s the juicy little cherry on top of this massive piece of art
Did anyone get the plot from the tv spots? Anything about the wives? They let the cars and scenery and explosions take center stage without hinting at the main storyline, because exploding badass cars is what the fans and the hypermasculine dudebros/neckbeards cared about. So they went in droves to opening weekend.
And then they went public to bitch about the feminist plot, and that’s when the feminists flocked to the theaters.
So not only did the ad guys NOT have to mention the plot, since the angry butthurt meninists did it for them, those guys already paid to see it. They got the dudebro money upfront then sat back while people who heard the message came around.
That’s fucking brilliance there.
I have no idea if it was deliberate but it sure as hell worked, because everyone feminist I know and their literal mother is all over this shit.
after the first pissbaby’s article went viral I went back and rewatched the trailers I’d seen and in about 10 minutes of trailer there’s less than a minute’s footage of the wives, its all the explosions and the fights.
everyone in harry potter treated luna like she was crazy for believing in weird shit like they didn’t go to wizard high school
RIGHT so when I started my sociology course in college, my teacher stated us off with
‘well I guess we have to do icebreakers. i’m Jon, and I fear bears. why do I fear bears? because bears can run at 30 miles per hour and Chester Zoo is 30 miles away. that means a bear can be outside this door in an hour. why would a bear be here? because they can smell fear and I fear them.’
The first time I heard an adult say the f word was when I was in fourth grade and we were doing some project that involved us baking cookies together as a class. My teacher Ms. Lindsey, who was real sweet, was demonstrating for everybody and she asked if anyone knew how to crack an egg, and I really didn’t know how to crack an egg, but I’m a go-getter, so I raised my hand and she called on me. I instantly knew I was in trouble at that point but I’d seen my dad crack eggs hundreds of times so I figured, ya know, it can’t be thaaaat hard. So I grab the egg but I have no sense of how softly you’re supposed to tap an egg to crack it, so I just slam it against the desk and splatter raw egg ten feet in every direction and my teacher said “what the fuck, Dion?”
