Leonardo DiCaprio in Romeo + Juliet (1996)
I don’t think feminism stands to gain anything by pretending that it’s easy to be a feminist. When I see or hear things like “80% of the world is feminist, a feminist is anyone who believes women should be equal,” I’m not comforted. I don’t see what the movement has to gain by pretending that misogyny is not the default in most people, and that being a feminist is as easy as buying into a buzzword. Feminism is hard. It requires examining our own beliefs and behaviors, a constant struggle to root out misogynist and patriarchal beliefs and behaviors, analysis of how our actions and the actions of others are harmful to women, and a conscious effort to change. Not just one time, but every day. To pretend that anyone who “believes in equality” is automatically a feminist is to leave the status quo untouched, to dress up oppressive behavior as liberating if we affix a “likes women” badge to it. To pretend that the fix is easy is to ignore that the disease permeates every aspect of our society, and to avoid naming the problem and telling people that work is actually involved is to fail women in the name of making others comfortable.
“goofiness” rarely damages the success of a good movie, particularly if it’s a summer blockbuster.
This overt embarrassment at the original source material is one of the greatest and most problematic divisions between Marvel and DC adaptations. While David S. Goyer makes cracks about comic book fans being unbangable geeks and the Martian Manhunter being too weird to film, Marvel Studios is laughing all the way to the bank with unrepentantly weird and light-hearted movies like Thor and Guardians of the Galaxy. They also have no problem drawing in new audiences, even for relatively obscure titles that most people have never even heard of.❞

why are men always spitting all over the sidewalk? do men create more saliva than women and need to get rid of it? are they marking their territory? what’s going on?
They can’t swallow because that’s gay
when u accidentally click a link so u dont release the mouse and kind of slowly drag away from the link. threat avoided. citizens safe. for now.
give me polite rebel teddy lupin though, who asks his grandmother’s permission for every one of his piercings, and who needed victoire to hold his hand for the first one, because “no his eyes were not watering thank you very much”
who is really good at setting the table at the potters, but is even better at stopping albus and james from killing each other while simultaneously reading lily yet another story
who brings fleur flowers almost every time he picks victoire up because he might look like he doesnt care but he really likes having their approval anyway
just gimme all of the teddy lupin please
this show is hilarious and everyone seriously needs to appreciate it

" boys don’t love me. they don’t even much like me. the real me, anyways. they love how i look. they love what they think i can give them. they love the idea of being loved by someone like me. that’s all. i danced with ned because he was nice, but he wasn’t really. he was just like them. in the end they’re always going to choose girls like lyanna and catelyn. at least i have arthur."
