acting like a man

Do not go looking for love in a man who acts like a boy and treats you like you are one of his toys.
—  Tenari Ioapo

These people live in a bubble and its showing so much right now. Gillians professional life isnt going to be negatively impacted by being with Peter. People cant make events and cancel preorders all the time. Shit happens. And this is such a small portion of her over all fanbase. Not everyone got into her work during the original run of The X-Files. Not all fans, new and old, are this obsessed with her personal life. Do you truly think Gillian or her PR gives a shit about what Tumblr or Twitter says? Well, of course you do because she has “spies”. PR gets involved when theres actually a noticeable backlash.
All of this also shows your lack of experience in relationships.

“Why is she acting like this for a man”

Uh, support? The premiere and dinner were only blocks away. We dont know how they decided to work out their events (eg him attending hers). This may be shocking to you but we dont know their schedules or their general day-to-day shit. See how other explanations work? See how I didnt automatically presume shes jumping thru hoops and being unfeminist for a guy? Either way time will tell

Johnson & Simmons vs LMDs

We were teased with FitzSimmons fighting off the Invasion of Body Snatchers together last week but instead we got something even better. Simmons and Johnson against the SHIELD.

The suspicions were true. Fitz was one of those replaced. He’s the 4th LMD and Daisy wasn’t one. But since the goal of those replaced is to replace others. LMDFitz tries this with Jemma but she’s fought scarier monsters before and she gets him first. But that cost too much - killing something that talks, acts and looks like the man you love while you are wounded and unsure who is real any more - she almost ready to give up.

That’s when Daisy finds her. After she discovers the truth by finding room full of copies of herself (made so all Inhumans can be rounded up and killed by LMD of her) and realises what is happening. And then she uses her power to show Jemma she is the real Daisy and to see for herself that was real Jemma. And then they go and fight the base full of LMDs and SHIELD agents turned against them. And they win. With smarts (gassing the humans so they fall asleep and moving them out of the harms way), powers (that Dais fight with the LMDMace and Coulson) and friends (each other, other agents, even LMDMay).

Aida not only made the LMDs replace all the main agents  but also wants them to kill all Inhumans. Is it just because that what the guy hosting their Framework wants? Because their abilities cannot be replicated in LMDs so that makes them impossible to fully impersonate? Or does she have some other motive? Still, I’m very glad Daisy found out before LMD Mack could kill Elena.

Also the difference between Radcliffe made LMDs and Aida’s. MayLMD is more like her real self than any of the others and in the end she chooses May’s real friends over the imposters. Lets Jemma and Daisy go and destroys the LMDs left. This is the difference between human reasoning and Aida’s - the flaw in her programming them makes her kill Radcliffe to resolve possible conflict of her prime directives. But she wants to learn how to be real girl. This will not end well. Especially with using Superior as her model of human behaviour.

Reylos create a redeemed Ben Solo character who is basically just white Finn. It all comes down to racism honestly. They can't empathize with Finn in the same way as Kylo because we live in a white supremacist society therefore it's easier to ship and see Ren as a love interest than Finn.

exactly- even though the film focuses a lot on finn’s emotional journey, people will reach to focus on kylo’s even when the narrative makes it obvious he’s a villain, and that the story isn’t fulfilled til the white man is part of the group.

obviously you can flesh his character out but not at the expense of the lead man, who happens to be a black lead man, and acting like there isn’t already a redemption story.

I know it's weird that I'm writing this to u but I feel like I need to share. The shit that Mon El pulled on the latest episode reminds me to much of a man that I used to call "dad". I watched my mother live in a intoxicating marriage for 17 years with a man who acted just like Mon El did this episode the same lines the same arguments. It's very sad that the show I associated with with love and empowerment has become a show that actually makes me remember thing I never wanted to relive.

It’s cool. Thank you for sharing this with me, i totally agree. And everyone is welcomed to my inbox for anything from just saying hi to sharing deeply personal stories. It’s always open and they’re always appreciated.

Man hell is a piece of trash. I know this. You know this. The tons of people who have had men like him in their lives know this and yet here we are being force-fed this toxic and infuriating character. 

Since the move to the CW it feels like a completely different show. Where are the messages about women not needing men to be strong? Or women not having to give anything up or lower their standards for men? Where is the predominately female cast on the show about female empowerment? Where is the screen time for the poc and why do they feel like tertiary characters instead of the series regulars they are? Why was the healthy and supportive relationship that was built up during the whole first season between James and Kara thrown away to make room for another ‘tall, dark and blandsome’ (Thank you Mr. Mxyzptlk for that very apt description) fuck boy? The fuckboy that has eaten up at least 30 minutes of each episode. The fuckboy that has been misogynistic and selfish. The fuckboy that got violently protective when Kara explicitly asked him to not get involved. The fuckboy that wanted and tried to kill a guy even after Kara told him they don’t kill (and a little reminder that James didn’t even support holding Max Lord in a cell after actively trying to kill supergirl. HOW DOES KARA DROP JAMES AND GO FOR THIS FUCKER??). The fuckboy that has proven time and time again that he is not worthy of Kara’s friendship, let alone her love. 

This show has completely 180′d and tbh the only reason i’m still watching is because of Sanvers (even though it feels more like queer baiting than one of the main characters’s actual relationships atm but don’t get me started on how badly they’re mistreated because we’d be here forever) and the cast.

sidenote: did anyone else feel like they were comparing Mon el to Mxyzptlk in order to show us that Man hell “isnt that bad”? I mean it didn’t work but it sure felt like that’s what they were trying to do.

She decides to go make conversation with a rather handsome dusky human NPC at the bar, to the surprise of the others.)

DM: You head over to this human. The human has a drink and is nursing it.

Ranger: I bring over my my jug. Sit down, try to act casual.

Warlock: (ooc) “Hey man, you look like you like the woods. I like the woods, too.”

Ranger: (cackling) That is *exactly* what I say. That is literally exactly what I say.

Ranger: And, as I’m saying it, I don’t care how full his drink was, I pour more from the jug.

NPC: I do like the woods.

Ranger: Woods are good! [And I clink the glasses.]

Ranger: I be Ciarà. What’s your name?

Ranger. Alar. And where you be from?

Spider-man: Homecoming basically stole from Miles Morales

I’ve been seeing some willfully obtuse shit regarding this where Marvel fans essentially ignore that Peter stole traits from Miles’ origin and story. So here is the list of the ways it was done.

1. Ganke Lee/Ned Leeds

Of course, I had to start with the most obvious.

Not only that he looks like Ganke, but he fucking acts like Ganke. Has Ned Leeds been Asian before? Yes, in Spectacular Spider-man Tv Show, but it would be hilarious that Disney and Sony actually stole from Greg Weisman after they both collectively screwed him twice. The thing about this character is that he acts more like Miles’ Ganke than he does Peter’s Ned Leeds.

Peter’s Ned Leeds was never a close friend of Peter’s, let alone went to the same school as Peter. He was an acquaintance at best or a fellow work mate at the most. 

Ganke, however….

..Is Miles’ best friend. He was introduced in Miles’ second issue ever. He has been a constant character ever since. That is Miles’ number 1.

If you noticed that Ganke was playing with Legos, guess what hobby Ned Leeds’ favorite hobby is?

That is a Lego Deathstar. And before you say, well in the panels’ he’s just playing with it. He doesn’t seem that interested in Legos.

And why Legos are integral to Miles and Ganke? Miles is not as Science smart as Ganke or Peter Parker so he cannot remake the Web fluid. Ganke is that smart and Legos are suggested by Chemists as great toys children to play with because it helps them visualize molecular models. Ganke is as important to Miles’ Spider-man as he is to Miles.

For all intents and purposes, Ned Leeds probably is just his best friend on account of Peter not telling Ned Leeds that he is Spider-man. Speaking of which, the whole Peter having a confidant in on his identity situation…

He never had one. Peter never told anyone that he is Spider-man. He never once shared that info with Gwen Stacy, Mary Jane(she always knew, but never revealed that she knew), Harry Osbourne, or anyone. In Ultimate Spider-man, Peter did confide in Mary Jane, but that was a case of her being his only friend.

Miles only revealed his identity to Ganke and eventually his father.  Well in the case of Ganke, Miles never had to reveal anything because Ganke was there to help him become Spider-man. It just the scene how Ned leeds found out.

Look familiar?

The same parallel as Peter’s.

Also, Ganke is girl obsessed like Homecomings’ Ned Leeds is. And yes, you are a little too infatuated with the opposite sex if you know by heart what a woman has worn previously and what she hasn’t.

The first thing Ganke does when Jessica Drew presents Miles with his new costume is to declare that he will start talking to girls.

After a deep conversation about what to do with Miles’ thieving ass Uncle, Ganke is pressed to go with Miles’ not to provide comfort, but to stare at his mom(who is really attractive).

As soon as he meets Mary Jane Watson and Gwen Stacy, Ganke immediately switches gears and starts hitting on them.

Ganke making a gift out of Legos for Gwen Stacy.

And it working…

Ganke trying to use Miles to hook him up with Dagger, and refusing to believe anyone is too hot for him.

Ganke is girl obsessed. It’s part of his charm.

So Peter took Miles’ best friend. Great.

2. Miles motivation of proving he is a superhero

I remember when I called this out and some moron said Peter had to prove himself to the Fantastic Four in his debut. No.

He wasn’t trying to prove himself with the Fantastic Four. He wanted to join the Fantastic Four so he can earn money.

The FF did not have an opinion on him, except Ben who did not like Spider-man for being a show off like Johnny. 

Just for your closure…

Miles’ however, had to go through a proving ground to not just be Spider-man, but also be qualified as a hero.

Instead of Tony Stark being the one supervisor of Miles, it is Captain America. It’s a long story as to why Cap feels the need to restrict Miles, but he is the one Miles has to prove his worth to.

After fighting with Captain America, Miles pops the question.

And to tie it into the Civil War, Miles’ asks to be the Ultimate equivalent of the Avengers, the Ultimates.

This is not a coincidence. You may say that they needed Peter to join MCU somehow, but how they are going about it is eerily similar to how they went about it with Miles. Peter never once had to gain recognition from his fellow superheroes. He never once had to ask to join the Avengers because they respected him as a hero. Miles’ did.

This is not the first time Peter took this from Miles either. The Ultimate Spider-man cartoon has Peter,again, taking Miles familiarity with Nick Fury and forming a super team just like Miles Morales. It’s annoying.

3. Younger Aunt May/Parental figure and having stability

Before I start this, yes, Ultimate Spider-man had a younger Aunt May and Uncle Ben. I know this. You seen her above when she is talking to Miles and you see her when Gwen kissed Ganke. But she did not look like this.

Now Marissa Tomei is a young looking 52 year old woman. Girl fucking looks good. Slay.

But Ultimate Aunt May did not look like she was pulling dates off tinder. Ultimate Aunt May also did not stay in an upscale Queen suite. Peter was not raised in an economically stable environment. There was always bills to be paid and Aunt May did not work.

Miles however lives in Brooklyn. His mom is a nurse and his father a cop. It is a stable household.

As you can see, Rio is hot!

Anyways, what contributed to Peter’s anxiety and neuroticism was that he never had a stable household. They were always just above the red. With Ben gone, Aunt May had to take care of the household in spite of Peter’s new adventures.  Peter is lower middle class. Miles’ is middle class when it comes to living in Brooklyn.

4. The charter school

This especially pissed me off. 

Miles goes to an advanced charter school for gifted children. How he did so?

You ever see the documentary, “Waiting for Superman?”

Okay, so there is a literal lottery for gifted urban youth(usually youth of color) for them to attend advanced schools. If they do not get the right lottery, then they are sent back to attend the shitty Inner City schools where they most likely won’t excel in life. They will most likely excel if they go to Charter School. It sucks, but that is a reality youth face.

Miles had to enter this lottery to attend his charter school(with the number 42, Jackie Robinson’s number to mark the significance). Peter has never been placed in a situation where his race and environment did not cheat him out of a future or reduce his options. His intelligence has always gotten him out of academic situations and guaranteed his success. Miles had to enter a fucking lottery to ensure his future was stable. And that is highly fucked up that Peter just took that trait from Miles without the significance of it being appreciated and realized.

That is four things that Spider-man: Homecoming leeched from Miles Morales and his story. And people want to act dumb as if these characteristics have always been attributed to Peter. Bull fucking shit. They wanted a relative character that was not presented on screen or the audiences did not already know. They exhausted Peter’s story, characters, and even abilities through 5 movies, several cartoon, and several video games and a fucking live action play. 

What pisses me off is that people have called Miles the inferior Spider-man or not the real Spider-man, yet Peter, this motherfucker, is literally taking aspects from Miles and no one is calling it out. You love everything about Miles when it is on a white character, huh?

It is also an aspect of Marvel canabalizing off of legacy characters. DC gave Wally a chance to be the Flash over Barry Allen. DC gave several Robins a chance and did not create an amalgamation of Robin. DC gave Jon Stewart a chance ahead of Kyle Rainer and Hal Jordan. Fuck, Marvel you gave Scott Lang a chance over Hank Pym in spite of making Hank Pym’s main villain the villain of Avengers 2(And Hank Pym fans did not deserve that). 

We heard every excuse in the book as to why Miles could not be the first to enter MCU when Peter’s story has been told 5 fucking times on screen.  Miles Morales was trending when it was announced that Marvel was making a Spider-man film. People wanted his story to be told. And we heard every excuse in the book as to why Miles could not be selected. There was fucking press release that basically said Peter Parker had to be white yet you don’t mind diversifying the rest of the cast. We heard that his story was too new, but that did not stop you from making Robbie Reyes the new Ghost Rider. That Miles is a legacy. Yet you made Scott Lang, the legacy to Hank Pym, the first Ant Man on screen while acknowledging that Scott Lang is the second Ant Man. You just did not want him on screen because Miles is not white. End of story. You liked his story so much that you attributed to Peter. You took his cast. You took his financial situation. You took his precarious school situation. You took one of his arc. And you gave them to Peter. By doing that, you all but ensured that Miles would be stuck in his comic book and not being getting a damn thing.

The only reason I am interested in this film is Zendaya because black women, even bi-racial women, are hardly romantic leads in super hero in general. They are rarely presented as such and that sucks. I really don’t are about this movie outside of that. It looks good, but whatever.

rogelio de la vega is honestly the best male character ive ever seen on television 

  • he doesnt give a shit about masculinity. moisturizing, avocado masks, etc.
  • the episode where he realizes how attractive rafael was, and he was so unapologetic about it.
  • he openly became best friends with his daughter’s lover, instead of trying to act like that stereotypical father thats mean to the man his daughter dates.
  • him renaming his grandson, matelio. 
  • his obsession with twitter.
  • he puts his family first all the time, i literally want to cry, he’s such a good man. 
  • he compliments people in the cutest way ever. :(
  • he loves shopping for clothes.
  • he knows the importance of lighting when it comes to photo taking.
  • ‘why are you so afraid of having your pelvis touch mine?’
  • his dedication to concealer is the greatest thing ive ever seen. 
  • when he left the AC running for 30 minutes and explained by saying ‘i didnt want your makeup to run’ on jane’s wedding day, what a dad! 
  • he owns up to his mistakes whenever he can. ie: when he told xo to get an abortion. 
  • he knows damn well that he can dance. 
  • HIS SKIN CARE DEDICATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • when he payed for jane’s education and literally set up a fake scholarship so she wouldn’t find out that the money was coming from him, like come on…
  • him constantly calling michael is best friend :( 
  • his moment of blatantly checking out rafael’s ass on the elevator one time after saying ‘i never realized how attractive you were until now’
  • again, he doesn’t give a shit about masculinity.
