had to shut a bitch down today
"Yes, but that’s still a minority! If more women played video games, there would be more reason to have female protagonists!"
Ad from India which shows men how creepy they are when looking at women.
fucking spot on
I like how the ladies in the ad are all wearing different kinds of clothing too from fully covered up to not.
Kill him and eat him in front of the others. It’s the only way they learn.
Reminder that Iron Man wasn’t “A-list” before his first movie.
Erm….How was Iron Man not “A-List”? He has several solo titles and is one of the main protagonists in the Avengers…. Iron Man is pretty much the definition of “A-List”
See the bit where I said “Before his movie”. He wasn’t, he really wasn’t, one of the top names before a) Ellis and Granov’s Extremis arc/reboot and b) his first movie.
Until that point he was moderately successful, within comics, but certainly wasn’t a huge hit, and crucially, very few people outside of comic readers had any idea who he was.
People need to remember this. Every. Day. They need to remember before they argue that none of Marvel’s ladies are A-List enough to head a movie or even be a lead amongst an ensemble. It’s very important.
and Guardians of the Galaxy is not an A-List team either. Nowhere near. Ant-Man is not an A-List hero. Hank Pym or Scott Lang.
Remember this every time you think Black Widow isn’t good enough or Captain Marvel isn’t big enough or not enough people know who Monica Rambeau is. Iron Man was not A-List before his movie. It’s still argueable if he’s really A-List in the comics since his book is nowhere near a top seller. Quite mediocre, actually
You know, I’m not even grateful this was cut, because we still got that fucking scene implying about Jim sleeping with and forgetting Christine Chapel in STID. The fact that it was even written and filmed is troubling. It’s like the writers have never even watched TOS and are writing bad fan fiction on what pop culture jokes there are about Kirk’s personality.
This scene manages to make Kirk racist, misogynist, and completely fucking stupid in one fell swoop. They have different hair colors, you’re supposed to be a fucking genius. It makes me frustrated and want to cry. I keep imagining him going to Vulcan and losing Spock in a crowd because hey, Vulcans look alike too. God fucking damn this bastardization of Kirk’s beautiful soul.
Reason #102837261 why nu!trek doesn’t exist to me. Bullshit like this.
I can’t help liking nu!Trek with all it’s flaws, but this makes me wanna cry
#this really emphasizes how absolutely ridiculous nat’s pose is#everyone else in this poster is powerful or threatening#i do’t care if it IS an allusion to the birth of venus#the pose emphasizes her curves figure and boobs rather then her guns#and that’s what people will see#all summer marvel west said that if we’re looking for a nat movie we should look to captain america: the winter soldier#a) that’s obviously unacceptable#b) if you’re going to try and sell this movie as something that can placate the demands for a female lead#then you better do it RIGHT.

There’s a difference between a female character who exists in a story and has a romantic relationship with a male character versus a female character who exists in a story to have a romantic relationship with a male character
Really interesting article about how the perceptions of sex (especially sex drive) have basically reversed gender roles in the past few hundred years.
…and no matter what the outcome is, women still seem to end up at home. (via tooyoungforthelivingdead)
This is why we cant win no matter how much we refute their logic:we have already lost, these are just their justifications to keep us busy. (via cereal-for-supper)
The goal posts are always moving. (via nanner)
the stereotype that women talk more than men is infinitely amusing to me because men are literally incapable of shutting the fuck up
i hope this post gets popular enough that i hurt a man’s feelings
It’s not a stereotype it’s a proven fact you femanazi piece of shit.
lmao there it is
You wanna talk proven facts? This shit’s been done, son: researcher Dale Spencer in Australia used audio and video tape to independently evaluate who talked the most in mixed-gender university classroom discussions. Regardless of the gender ratio of the students, whether the instructor was deliberately trying to encourage female participation or not, men always talked more—whether the metric was minutes of talking or number of words spoken.
Moreover, men literally have no clue how much they talk. When Spencer asked students to evaluate their perception of who talked more in a given discussion, women were pretty accurate; but men perceived the discussion as being “equal” when women talked only 15% of the time, and the discussion as being dominated by women if they talked only 30% of the time.
Spencer’s conclusion, if I may parahprase: you only think we talk too much because you’d rather we were silent.
Don’t fuck with me, asshole, I’m a scientist.
