The frightening thing is that, like most of their other campaigns against women, they see themselves as just warriors fighting for what’s right. This is primarily because they firmly believe that any woman who speaks up on women’s issues is completely disingenuous and only doing it for the purposes of self-promotion, and that any man who does is looking to get laid, because they actually cannot possibly imagine a scenario in which someone would genuinely give a shit about women.
Members of this board, as well as “Men’s Rights Activists” in general, tend to go apoplectic at even the most mild implications that women might be human beings. For them, this is simply “not allowed” and must be punished swiftly and severely, as they appear to believe that feminism is the one obstacle in the way of all these pathetic neckbeards getting their pick of supermodel girlfriends who obey their every whim. The goal is to make it as uncomfortable to speak out about misogyny and women’s issues as possible, which is why they go to the wall in terms of harassing women like Emma Watson. At the end of the day, this is the crux of it. It would be sad if it weren’t so vile. By Emma Watson threatened with nude photo leak over UN speech on gender equality (via feministartdegree)

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.

Helena Bonham Carter pretending to be Belatrix pretending to be Hermione pretending to be Belatrix


No but her acting was so good in this scene that I had to pause and zoom in on her face to make sure it wasn’t actually Emma in makeup, and even then I wasn’t totally convinced.

Emma acted out the scene first, and then Helena Bonham Carter mimicked what she did. so it was Helena Bonham Carter pretending to be Emma Watson pretending to be Helena Bonham Carter pretending to be Bellatrix pretending to be Hermione pretending to be Bellatrix.


my head hurts

In issue 185 of Captain America Red Skull kidnaps Gabe and Peggy and subjects them to severe torture because of their relationship.

In a response to a letter printed in issue 190, the editor explained why they included that storyline and it’s kinda cool. 

Gabe/Peggy is so so important and ngl, if we don’t get them together at some point in Agent Carter, it’s just going to be such a disappointment for me.

Wow, this is absolutely awesome.  I am not that familiar with the Cap comics from before the movies - I was an avid comic reader in the 90s, but it was 99% the X-titles.  

When they had the line in TWS that Peggy married someone that Steve rescued from the Hydra facility, I was going to put money on it being DumDum Dugan because he was the most conventional character and I know the Hollywood machine - kind of eye-rolling all the while.  

But being Gabe?  That’s awesome.  I REALLY hope that this gets worked into the Peggy Carter series.  

And I LOVE Marvel’s response here - even back then - likening their bigoted readers to Red Skull’s own complaints.  Here’s hoping they have the balls to be that progressive now, decades later with unconventional pairings.

This would mean that Antoine Triplett is Peggy’s grandson, too. Now I need the fic where he and Steve meet, and he fills Steve in on all the years of growing up with Grandpa Gabe and Grandma Peggy. Right now.

That would also make Trip Sharon’s cousin I believe since Peggy is her Aunt which makes me want Sharon to tell Steve about her cousin who also works for SHIELD and her Uncle Gabe and how her entire family continued the legacy started by Steve and his friends 

you guys don’t even understand how much I want Sharon and Trip to be cousins.

i love seeing girls close ranks when their fella is cheating, instead of defending him and attacking the other girls. like seriously. it warms my cold, cold heart so much.

I’ve always wanted to do this. I hope they all went out for ice cream later too.

i want an update on this



Charlie Fisher was met by the girls shouting “liar, liar” as he walked out of arrivals.

A cheating boyfriend got his comeuppance when he touched down in the UK following a holiday – and walked straight into his three girlfriends.

Charlie Fisher, 20, had barely set foot on English soil at Luton Airport when he heard someone shouting ‘liar, liar’ – and saw the three girls he had been seeing being each other’s backs marching towards him.

Becky Connery, 17, said she planned the (not so) welcome party after finding out her love rat boyfriend had been texting a girl behind her back.

‘He came out and froze,’ she told The Sun.

The girls found each other through text and Facebook and hatched the plan (Picture: Lizzie Leeland-Cunningham)

‘We started calling him a cheat and a liar really loudly. He didn’t have anything to say.’

After seeing the message, Becky got in touch with the 20-year-old girl – who does not want to be identified – and together, the pair found a third girl through Facebook, Lizzie Leeland-Cunningham.

‘I just wanted to see his face when all three of us were in the same place,’ Lizzie, 19, told The Sun.

Becky later said that after confronting her cheating ex, he ‘ran to his nana’.

Charlie, from Hertfordshire, would invent friends and lie about family commitments in order to juggle the three girls, according to reports.
