At my school there’s a rule that only one student can be out of class at a time with a hall pass, but today in math a bunch of people forgot their graphing calculators so my math teacher yelled, “EVERYBODY, GO. RUN. THEY CAN’T CATCHH ALL OF YOU.”
is anyone else finding marvel’s anti-bullying campaign kind of ironic?
i mean, this is the company that was calling female fans idiots for finding one of their creators’ works problematic just a month or so ago. this is also the company that endorses their films’ writers, who keep insisting on having their actors call the only female characters in their films “whores” (it doesn’t matter how creative whedon was about it-he did it, it happened and i won’t even get into guardians. if i even think about drax’s ooc behavior towards gamora, i might scream) and i’s praised as “great writing”.
this company refuses to have a poc as a main character in a film. this company refuses to have a female led film. despite the many amazing poc characters and female superheroes they always manage to fridge. this company keeps insisting on having porno artists draw a book about a woman who has constantly been sexualized, abused by her compatriots, and ridiculed by the very fans they so cherish.
this company is sitting on a pedestal it by no means deserves and its constant jerking off to it’s supposed “excellence” and “forward-thinking” is getting tiring.
Yes. Very much so.
my favorite moment in all cinematic history is when an enormous robot the size of a skyscraper picks up a battleship and smashes it into a giant sea alien’s face. god bless pacific rim
headcanon that a big contributor to mako’s sense of justice and anger (and the reason she was so quick to turn around and shut raleigh down) is watching stacker have to put up with racism, both when it comes to antiblackness basically anywhere they’ve ever gone and the way he handled it on mako’s behalf when she was too young to realize what was goin on
and now that she’s older LIKE HELL she’s gonna let some white boy disrespecting her sensei slide
#herc is ok in her books because he looks at stacker like he’s the literal sun #the russians have always treated him w/ respect #the weis would go to bat for stacker anytime anywhere #the headaches they give him notwithstanding #what i’m saying is that mako’s shatterdome family has been VERY CAREFULLY SELECTED FOR #also i have a lot of feelings about mako and stacker #having basically the healthiest relationship in this entire film (tags from flybaldies)
