getting REAL fuckin tired of the ‘well black widow and captain marvel don’t have the same name recognition’ argument
look at iron man, who was probably a c-lister and slowly decreasing in popularity before his movie came out
look at thor, who had almost no fans in the general public when his movie came out
look at fucking GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. the general public AND quite a bit of the comic book fandom had absolutely no knowledge of them before the movie. and even after the movie trailers debuted i spent a lot of time explaining gotg to people.
look at doctor strange
please don’t throw up excuses to defend marvel for their obvious unwillingness to make a female led marvel movie anytime soon
there are no excuses at this point
"Imagine if today, scientists showed you the Aurochs Wild Ox, and said — “Give us time. In just a few years, we will genetically modify this wild animal, turning it into a different sub species whose sole purpose is to provide vast quantities of milk for humans to drink. They will produce 10x as much milk as did the original animal. But they will require vast grasslands to sustain. And some of you will get sick because you won’t be able to digest the lactose. But no need to label this fact. People will just figure this out on their own. The rest of you will be fine. We’ll call the result a Holstein Milk Cow.”
What would anti GMO-laboratory people say this story? Would they embrace it or reject it? Of course, over the past 10,000 years, this is exactly what we’ve done to that Ox - or whatever is the agreed-upon origin of the domesticated Cow. Call it GMO-agriculture. If you reject GMOs you fundamentally reject it all."
"The idea that we should treat sexual orientation itself as an adults-only topic, however, is absurd. Non-heterosexual children exist. To pretend they do not, to fail to recognize that they have needs for support and validation like any child, would be bad teaching, bad writing, and bad citizenship."
Rick Riordan, from his FAQ on his website.
Fuck, I love you.

Okay, but, like, I am so fucking out of it that at first glance I thought this was saying that Beyonce, Jay Z and Kanye had made a sex tape and I was like, whaAAAAT? WHEN DID THAT HAPPEN? WHY WOULD THEY DO THAT?
And then I realized someone else was in the picture.

If you kill a person, you’re a murderer. If you steal, no one would hesitate to call you a thief. But in America, when you force yourself on someone sexually, some people will jump through flaming hoops not to call you a rapist.
As reported by Al Jazeera America, colleges across the country are replacing the word “rape” in their sexual assault policies with “non-consensual sex” because schools don’t want label students “rapists”.
Hate doesn’t breed hate. Hate inspires anger in victims of hatred and that anger is called hatred to delegitimize it and villainize people. If you wanna help people who are victims then first you gotta stop acting like they’re just as bad their oppressors and abusers.
