Really looking forward to the end of those MARVEL is so DIVERSE and DC is so STUPID and TERRIBLE and they HATE WOMEN!!! posts.

I mean, DC is stupid and terrible, but also: guys.

Your fucking move Marvel. I can’t believe we’ve already gone through forty thousand MCU films without confirmation of a female-led film yet. (It’s also too bad that the first female superhero movie we’re seeing in a loooong time is going to star an actual real life zionist scum villain)

To be fair, Wonder Woman is fucking Wonder Woman. There is no Marvel female hero that compares, aside from X-Men characters and Black Widow, and there’s no reason to force a Black Widow movie if it’s not in the cards just to make a female led superhero movie. Black Widow shouldn’t get special treatment because she’s a female. She was brought in as a supporting character like Hawkeye and Nick Fury and she should get the same consideration that they do. That said, I could see a Ms. Marvel film in a few years. Hopefully.

"Black Widow shouldn’t get special treatment because she’s a female" one female-led film in the midst of a million male-led ones is special treatment now excuse me

Special treatment is not including female characters except in a supporting capacity in the first place, and refusing to give her a movie despite that there’s so much to work with, constant hinting at her backstory within the other films and a huge fucking demand for her own movie. Fiege said he gets asked about the possibility of a Black Widow movie absolutely all the time, more than anything else, more than the possibility of Iron Man 4. Please don’t try to make it sound like the MCU has no female-led movie for any reason other than sexism.

Marvel Studios doesn’t make their movies based on what the fans want, they make their movies based on how the movie fits in to their plans and based on how ready it is. That’s the point. Nobody asked for a Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Marvel made that movie because they specifically felt that they needed to make that movie at that time. Ant-Man is being made not because the fans wanted an Ant-Man movie, but because Edgar Wright had been planning the movie since before the MCU existed. If Marvel made movies based on fan demand we’d have a Hawkeye movie, another Hulk movie, a Loki movie, a Black Panther movie, a Nova movie, a Daredevil movie, a Luke Cage movie, an Iron Fist movie, a Ms. marvel movie as well as a Black Widow movie. The fact that there hasn’t been a female led Marvel movie is an unfortunate circumstance, but if it’s not in the cards they shouldn’t force it just to make a female led superhero movie. Giving Black Widow her own movie just because she’s female is treating her like a token female character and that’s not right. THAT is sexism. Marvel should make the movie when the movie is ready. No later, no sooner.

And if you seriously think there’s a female Marvel hero that compares to Wonder Woman in popularity and status, I’m wondering if YOU even read Marvel comics. Wonder Woman is comparable to Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Spider-Man, etc. There is no Marvel female hero comparable to her PERIOD.

Right, so female heroes have to either be Wonder Woman or they don’t deserve to star in movies, good to know. I also like how you cite Wonder Woman’s popularity as reason why she deserves to get a movie while simultaneously saying that what fans want doesn’t matter. It’s not an “unfortunate circumstance” that they built an expansive cinematic universe with white men in every single lead role and only a handful of female characters in supporting roles. They literally PLANNED it that way, it didn’t just so happen, there’s no such thing as a female character just not being able to work, it works if you make it work, the same way you can make a fucking talking tree and talking raccoon work. There’s no such thing as an organic happenstance of exclusion of female characters. It’s deliberate and it’s sexist and so you are you if you make excuses for it.

tumblr never fucking fails me

#Making a movie about a female character because she is female is sexist

laughing for literally a thousand years about this entire thread

I don’t usually reblog this garbage because it is not worth engaging and I like my tumblr to be a relatively peaceful space, but I just can’t fucking resist, it’s too good, I was out with Gav all day and then watched some television just now and came on tumblr and saw all this and laughed my fucking ass off

it’s true, there’s a divine plan behind the MCU and it just hasn’t happened to include leads who aren’t white dudes yet. someday the skies will open and the patron saint of superhero movies will say, “it is finally time, the patriarchy is dead, you are allowed to have a movie about a girl now, go forth and prosper, etc etc.” AND THEN IT WILL BE FINE. won’t we be lucky on that glorious day.

I mean this has already been said but the MCU is not just a story that has ~happened. PEOPLE FUCKING MADE IT UP. THEY COULD HAVE DECIDED TO HAVE A NARRATIVE WITH PROTAGONISTS WHO WERE NOT WHITE DUDES. THEY CHOSE NOT TO. or rather they chose to include one woman (in addition to five white dudes) and not to give her her own movie. none of the stories are “forced,” or all of them are, depending on how you want to look at it. THAT’S HOW STORYTELLING WORKS.

Hollywood is sexist. their cinematic output is, consequently, also sexist. so, you know, at this point, I’d happily take studios greenlighting a few superhero movies about female characters just because they were female. hand ‘em off to writers and directors who know what they’re doing. THEY WOULD PROBABLY DO JUST FINE. but they also don’t need to do that, because female stories are good and valid irrespective of the fact that their protagonists are women.

and now I’m fucking going to bed.

Alright. I’m about to fall asleep at my computer, so I’m gonna sign out now and pray that tonight isn’t a night construction because a good night’s sleep is all that’s going to keep me from lighting those documents on fire tomorrow.

200 fucking pages.

Early to bed, early to rise makes a blogger no less grumpy but hopefully well rested enough to not fall asleep reading and annotating 200+ pages of government instructions.

"This is terrible and that cop shouldn’t have done that, but he/she/they should have…"

isthereaguideforthis:

Please attempt to understand what is going through the minds of these victims of excessive police force and brutality. As a person of color who has seen over and over again what kind of power the police use against those who are in no position to defend themselves physically or legally, I feel I am in no position to judge someone who does not complete the good citizen checklist upon being met with such a terrifying situation. Imagine being in their position, knowing that if you get out of the car or reach to unlock a door or whatever you need to do, you could get shot down with no hesitation by the person pointing a weapon in your direction. 

People have been killed while being 100% compliant. Compliancy is not a guarantee you will make it out alive. When you feel like your life could end any second at the whim of a power-tripping police officer, you may feel extreme pressure to make some fight or flight decisions because you know deep down, those officers see no value in your life. You are no longer a citizen, you are a target. 

Blaming someone for how they react in such a stressful situation does not change the fact that they shouldn’t have been made to feel like they were, quite possibly, in their last moments of life.
