MY GRANDMA GOT ALL A’S IN “ETIQUETTE” (YES THAT WAS AN ACTUAL CLASS IN HER HIGH SCHOOL) AND SHE TOLD ME, “DEAR,” SHE SAID,
“YOU NEVER CROSS YOUR LEGS, YOU CROSS YOUR ANKLES. BUT THE GREAT THING ABOUT YOU LIVING IN THIS GENERATION IS YOU DON’T HAVE TO FOLLOW MY GENERATION’S RULES. SIT THE WAY YOU WANT. IF SOMEONE LOOKS UP YOUR SKIRT, JUST TELL THEM YOUR AUNT MARY WILL KILL THEM.”
WHICH IS TRUE
MY AUNT MARY HAD A SWITCHBLADE IN A SPECIAL POCKET OF HER NIGHTGOWN UNTIL THE DAY SHE DIED
the moral of this story is
1. Sit the way you want.
2. My great aunt Mary was a fucking badass.
Aunt Mary is my new hero
A while back I read a post about how writers create heroes by hurting women. When a man gets a tragic backstory they kill a woman, when a woman gets a tragic backstory they don’t kill her man they still hurt a woman.
I though about this and came to the conclusion that they are right, if a woman loses her husband she will just deal and keep on living. She will not drop all responsabiliy and neglect her friends and family to let sorrow and vengence consume her life, loose touch with reality and dress in a skin tight suit and stand on rooftops in the rain. She will be hurt but with time and selfcare and support of the good friends she has chosen to care for in her life, she will be fine.
And i think this is why men fear women, because we don’t really need them the way they need us, and why writers have such a hard time finding a good tragic backstory for their heroines.
I just love it in The Avengers when Black Widow asks Hawkeye for help. She never asks for help, and in this case, she certainly doesn’t ask for help because she needs it. She’s heading to the top of Stark Tower and she is focused on her mission. She outwitted Loki after sneaking up on him and has just as much fight in her - if not more - than all the other Avengers. She needs no help.
Black Widow asked Hawkeye for help because she knew that if she pointed out where Loki was, Hawkeye would be able to get some kind of closure on what was done to him by Loki.
In short, Black Widow is a BAMF in so many ways and her consideration of the mental and emotional wellbeing of her peers is just one of them.
His features just scream regal, he can portray fantastic emotional range and I would love to see Black Panther as cool, regal, but just faintly dorky (like when he was Hardison in Leverage) now and then? This guy here could pull that off perfectly. Also, stunning hotness.
i’m laughing so hard at how advanced technology is in asgard
the reason thor was disoriented on midgard when he got sent down was because that shit was too basic for him, he was thrown for a loop
