I want to talk about the importance of names in Hidden Figures.
Katherine being told not to write her name on the reports and doing it anyway
Katherine being introduced as Katherine during the Pentagon meeting and having her name repeated by her boss to emphasize who she was and why she belonged there
Katherine proudly correcting people on her last name after she remarried
John Glenn avoiding Katherine’s name and calling her “The girl. The smart girl,” even though he darn well knew her name to contextualize her and recognize that she, a woman, is smart (I never expected to hear “girl” as a sign of respect, and yet…)
Mrs. Mitchell finally calling Dorothy “Mrs. Vaughn” to give her the same level of respect
well this was a recommended blog on Tumblr, and i kinda miss writing to a pen pal? in my middle school, my French class had a pen pal program and we’d write letters in French to kids our age. i speak decent French, but my first language is English. i love plants and gardening, and my favorite artists are panic! at the disco, fall out boy, and stromae. (i’m also trans, so no transphobes please.)
people around my age (15-18), people who are comfortable w the lgbt spectrum
Hanoi, Vietnamese Classy Coffins, Cooked Dogs Heads, Fresh Graves, Fresh Dragon Fruit, Skull & Crossbones, Mountain Fog, More Skulls & Love Hearts, School Boys English homework, A Chicken and a pig with great personality, A sweet shop girl with a sweet shop cat.
Okay, so I’ve been seeing a few posts floating around saying
how terrible of a friend Kaneki is to have left Hide all alone and all that, so
I thought I’d make sort of character analysis thingy to see Kaneki’s reasons
properly before I start jumping to conclusions.
This ended up hella long so I’ll put it under the cut.
[Also there are
spoilers and lots of baseless speculations, so please dont take some of it too
