Anonymous asked: How can you like Jane Foster?? She is the most fanservice-y random love interest that just reinforces negative stereotypes about women.
Oh, you mean these negative stereotypes?
- Women can be groundbreaking scientists with brilliant ideas
- A woman doesn’t have to look pretty for anyone
- Being pretty has nothing to do with intelligence
- Women don’t need to be saved by a man
- Women can slap people for legitimate reasons and omfg he deserves it so hard.
I don’t care if you think Jane is a boring character or don’t like her, but plz explain to me how having friggin Natalie Portman in frumpy clothes for an entire movie is fanservice.
no wait i see it you can totally see like, a quarter of her neck.
And about the random love interest:
I see this all the time. Everyone bitches about how you can’t fall in love with someone after X days and she’s just an airhead blah blah blah
First off, are y’all trying to tell me you wouldn’t be all over Chris Hemsworth?
I don’t believe you.
you’re a dirty rotten fibber liar.
And second, I am pretty sure more than half of fandom shipping is based off of split second glances that characters give each other in random scenes so do not even
feignedwisdom asked: What kills me about the "why did Thor pick Jane over Sif" thing is the double misogyny. It's not just that they shit on Jane, but Sif hasn't shown any romantic interest in Thor in MCU. They're portrayed as comrades-in-arms. So thanks for taking Sif's agency away, too.
yeah. and even if sif really were into thor, it would still be fucking wrong to compare them like that
thor likes jane as a whole person. the totality of who she is. that’s what he likes
there’s no “objective” scale by which he could be convinced to like another woman because
WOMEN ARE NOT REPLACEABLE THINGS YOU TRADE IN FOR BETTER MODELS OF THE SAME THING
THEY ARE PEOPLE
HE IS IN LOVE WITH A PERSON
PEOPLE ARE UNIQUE AND IRREPLACABLE
THERE IS NO ONE ELSE WHO IS JANE IN THE ENTIRE FUCKING UNIVERSE
trying to compare women as if they’re status symbols and one is objectively superior to the other for that purpose is dehumanizing and morally repugnant
it reduces both women, even the “winner” of the fucked up bullshit imaginary competition
that’s how you treat cars—if you’re a pathetic consumerist good for nothing who has to prove worth through owning things—NOT fucking human beings
listen, i’m sorry that your culture is destroyed and that you all seem to suffer from alcoholism but we didn’t steal your land and we sure as hell didn’t do this to you
we bought this land
like 300 fucking years ago
get the fuck over it, get a fucking job, become a functioning member of society and shut the fuck up.
i have to work and go to school full time to afford to eat, you whiny cunts get free education, tons of race-specific scholarships, free housing etc etc
my family had to put off our disney world vacation by a year to pay for my braces

"my family had to put off our disney world vacation by a year to pay for my braces"
This person sounds like a capitol citizen from “The Hunger Games”.
Weird. It’s almost like people who do not get pregnant don’t even need abortions.

He is aware he just confirmed that he believes in forcing women to bear children against their will, right?

Everyone should see this kind of thing.

I hate ZeLink for such people.
Here are the problems I have with the American version of Sherlock AKA Elementary.
1. Watson is a woman. (fuck that, its JOHN WATSON not Jane watson)
2 SH & that sham of Watson live in NYC
3. Mycroft lives at 221b Baker Street, and keeps a tidy house. FUCK THAT I want thumbs in the fridge.
4. Irene Adler is American.
5. Moriarty is not only a woman but is Irene! FUCK YOU CBS! MOTHER FUCK YOU.
6. I can not handle how non sociopathic the CBS version of SH is.
7. Mycroft is a chef. A CHEF?!?! No no no no no no no no
8. Johnny Lee Miller is NOT Benedict Cumberbatch
9. Lestrad is a bumbling officer accused of murder. again, nonononononono
10. This show doesn’t scratch the ever present itch that the lack of the REAL Sherlock has left me with.
FUCK THIS FUCKING SHOW AND I HOPE IT DIES! Long live BC as SH.
SO CLOSE. SO CLOSE.
Is OP a troll?
Please, tell me it’s a troll.
Also, I’ll get one bingo.
Anonymous asked: What is your honest-to-god opinion on free! shippers?
I thought about asking you whether there is anything in specific you’d like to have addressed, because free! shippers covers a lot of ground. But I don’t ship any ships that are at the ‘frontlines’, so I might be out of loop with the current state of things.
If I had to give a generic response it would be this:
I think some shippers take things way too seriously and don’t take into account how others might feel about how they conduct their shipping. If I could pinpoint where it went wrong, it would be when the very fine line between ‘HAHA they’re so gay!’ and ‘OMG they’re so canon!’ was crossed. It implies that the other is not ‘canon’, thereby causing massive irritation to certain groups of people.
Also, as someone who watches the show for what it actually is and enjoys multiple ships on the side, it’s kind of awkward to see this needless hostility going on.
And this is why I’ve chosen my corner of the fandom and select people to follow and here I shall shelter until next summer.
Because seriously, I went from "I love EVERYONE IN THIS FANDOMMM…" to "I fucking hate YOU ALL" in no time flat. Like a total 180 for me.
But I still love the series and I love the story so I’m gonna stick to celebrating that. Shippers be damned.
White People: “You blacks need to get over what we did to you. It was so long ago and it wasn’t even that bad. So what if us honest hard working christians could attend a lynching after church, where’s the issue in that?”
this shit was happening like 40 fucking years ago
hell this shit STILL HAPPENS
The fact that he has on a u.s. army sweatshirt is just
these two guys (including Army sweatshirt guy) were helping the one guy escape a white mob
there’s another photo of them helping him walk away to safety
who knows what really happened, history is all fucked up.
history is incredibly fucked up and the 1943 race riots in Detroit were incredibly fucked up
but the second photo is much more clear about the interactions between these three. Source on the 2nd photo was an issue of Life magazine from the time.
Well done Tumblr. You posted a picture without context and made two of the nicest people look like complete monsters.
Typical fucking tumblr.
Not surprised with tumblr anymore.
designing and animating a diverse cast of women is hard
translation: we’re afraid to make women look different and “ugly” by giving them emotions that aren’t cutesy and cuddly because that would give people the idea that they’re human and not dolls to sell for Disney profit
SHIP WHAT YOU WANT AND DON’T JUDGE PEOPLE FOR NOT SHIPPING IT TOO
