you know what i want? i want cheesy teen lesbian movies. I want stupid teen cliché lesbian books. I want to see a lesbian movie that is not a drama, and it’s funny and have a big musical number for no reason bc - dammit-, I need representation. All my life I have wanted to have something like Troy and Gabriella, Danny and Sandy or even Cady and Aaron Samuels so when I had to deal with realising my sexuality it was harder. bc I didn’t have any examples.
so fuck this heteronormative culture, I want a girl asking a girl out for a bet, I want the popular/nerd trope, I want best friends falling in love…
I m just a stupid gay cheesy teen and I want representation. fuck this shit.

That Gal Gadot has never ‘supported the Palestinian genocide’.

Does not have a rifle with the notch marks of all those she’s killed.

And has stated outright that she believes in coexistence.

She worked as a fitness instructor, never seeing combat during her mandatory stint in the Israeli army (IDF), and the only thing she said was that she wished luck to her former colleagues in the army (you know, the equivalent of ‘Support Our Troops’) and specifically wished them luck against (and condemned) Hamas, which is a terrorist organization.  Her tags then went on to note #stopterror and #coexistance.

You don’t have to like her, or Wonder Woman, or DC, but if you could keep the antisemitism out of it, that’d be great.

out of all the live action disney remakes, the lion king is the one that’s pissing me off the most. i mean. this is a movie that’s entirely about talking animals. which means that there’s no fucking way this is going to be a ‘live-action’ film. it’s not a cinderella, a beauty and the beast, a mulan, or even a jungle book. they all had fantastical elements that had to be animated, but they still starred real-life actors in real sets that could actually do a live-action performance. lion king, on the other hand, will have to be entirely animated. so it will just be the exact same fucking animated movie except the animation will make the lions and hyenas look hyper-realistic, i guess. how very necessary. hooray.
