YOU KNOW WHAT PISSES ME OFF?
I was just at Wal-mart, looking in the men’s section for a shirt or something, when I see a bright pink shirt with Elsa on it. No, it wasn’t in the wrong place. it was a men’s shirt.
this is fine. this is acceptable.
near the registers, i see a bunch of Guardians of the Galaxy merch. NONE OF IT HAD GAMORA.
This is unacceptable. we men can claim frozen, and MLP, and whatever else, and that’s cool. but HEAVEN FUCKING FORBID we include a superhero female on shit that COULD BE BOUGHT BY A BOY OMG. and what about the little girls out there who saw the film? what if there is a little girl right now who fell in love with the kickass Gamora, who now jumps around her room playing pretend that she’s fighting Nebula and saving the universe, and she begs for a toy of her? JUST TO FIND OUT THAT HER FAVORITE CHARACTER ISN’T REPRESENTED ANYWHERE?
there is a post I saw recently where people were angry at Gamora being left off a GotG t-shirt at hot topic or something. And the maker said something like “this is a boy’s shirt, no girls lol”. I just……the sheer amount of Hypocrisy, sexism, and utter bullshit this represents is so mind-boggling I cannot put it into words.
Gamora is a huge part of that team. She is equal to all of them. don’t tell me she doesn’t deserve to be on a pillow.
