What were your inspirations, especially since [Tauriel] is a completely created character; what brought you to bring that power because there were a lot of ways you could have played that role that would have been along the lines of what we usually see for a girl in an action movie where she’s not in the adventure, she’s the prize…?
Boycotting Agent Carter because the MCU is messing up in other ways is like walking into a local bookstore, and screaming at a random salesperson ILL NEVER BUY ANYTHING FROM YOU AGAIN, ALL THE NOVELS HERE ARE TERRIBLE
because you spotted a novel with problematic sexism, next to the works of of Octavia Butler, and a myriad of other fantastic, feminist writers.
Feminism in a consumer economy has to fight its way through a throng of s h i t, and the way to help it reach prominence in the media is by supporting feminist works, and criticizing the works that display externalized and internalized bigotry, and doing it loudly
The only thing that happens when you boycott a feminist work is that every sexist in the joint cries aloud and says LOOK, FEMALE-LED PROJECTS ALWAYS FAIL.
Why, why on earth would you boycott an actually feminist work, if you call yourself a feminist? Everything points to Agent Carter being a groundbreaking show, that’ll help pave the way for other franchises and studios to follow suit, and stop pussyfooting around with the bullshit excuse of “women don’t sell.”
This show needs to be a success. If you look at it and don’t see the glorious potential for a beautiful throng of diverse, complex women, I wash my hands of you.
Claire is spot on.
it’s so hot. I wrote a lot of stuff but the tumblr app lost it. yesterday I wore my swimsuit with a skirt and told myself all day that I might try to go to a pool after I took care of mom. (I didn’t. oh well.) today I’m just drinking a slush. anyway, I love you a lot. xoxoxoxo
It hurts when you come to realize
You don’t mean as much to someone as you thought
There’s a special kind of pain for being forgotten
Easily replaced and discarded
And it’s a pain that comes at you from different angles
Pain that relentlessly pokes and pricks
But a pain that lingers and weighs you down as well
It never truly goes away
Never slowly dissipates
It’s always there
Ephemeral yet forever
Time can mute it
Shave down the jagged edges
But it’s always there
Your constant reminder
