but better than than never

What really sucks about the way Joss Whedon writes is that he sort of has this idea that if he writes about women being strong and confident, that is all it takes for women to appreciate his work. Like, even if the villain constantly belittles a woman for being a woman and people are constantly harassing her and sexualizing her, it’s okay because she’s strong and she can take it.

The biggest difference between Whedon’s version of Wonder Woman and Jenkins is that in Whedon’s version Wonder Woman is A Woman. She (and the audience) must be constantly aware that she is a Woman, that she is Sexy, that she is overcoming incredible odds because she has the terrible disadvantage of Being Born A Woman.

Whereas in Jenkins’ film Diana simply exists. There are some points made by other characters about her being a woman, like when Steve won’t sleep with her because he feels it’s improper, or when his secretary says, “Oh yes, put specs on her, like after that she won’t be the most beautiful woman you’ve ever seen”, but Diana is almost completely unaware of her status as a Dreaded Woman. Her excitement over a baby? She’s literally never seen one before. Her little makeover seen? Spends the whole thing looking for something comfortable she can fight in. She basically never mentions the difference between men and women, never even says that women are better or whatever because she was raised by them. 

Joss Whedon would have never let Wonder Woman forget she was a Woman. She would have constantly been making comments about it, wether positive or negative, as would everyone around her. In Whedon’s heyday that might have flown a lot better, but now women seem to be a little sick of grrrrl power. They just want power. They just want to exist, both on screen and in life, without constant reminders that they are Women and that they must pay for that at every turn.

“I suppose some day you will become my enemy as well
But I don’t care because even then,
I will continue to wish for a world in which you’ll be happy”

supergirl season 1 appreciation week
day 3: why you love season 1

When you first came to live with us, my parents told me that you would be sad and fragile, having just lost your world, your parents, friends. But you never let that loss diminish your light. 

You’ve always had the heart of a hero, Kara, way before you put on that “S”.

Day 5 Traditional || Unorthodox

During Tanabata celebration…
Hanzo: W-What are you doing? ( ಠ_ಠ )
McCree: Wearin’ this in the traditional form… with a tiddy out~ (¬ ͜ʖ ͡¬)
Hanzo: That’s not the correct way to wear a yukata. Put on your clothes right, you fool!  (/ò//Д//óˇ///)

TodoDeku Week 2017
Day 1 : First Impressions

Todoroki introduces Midoriya to his mom, some time during their 3rd year, and they often rush from class to have dinner with her. I also had this idea of Todoroki’s mom being let outside the hospital when accompanied by others now. This time they go to a garden house nearby. I’d like to think she gets better enough to leave and Todoroki and Midoriya are making plans for her to move in with them at their future rented place together after graduation.
