nazi dating

dating advice: the “captain america” rule

Context: I grew up in a family of nerds, and superheroes were always a really big part of my childhood. Captain America was a favorite, and he kind of became my family’s standard for good behavior and just generally being a Nice Person. (If one of the kids started a fight they’d get hit with, “What would Captain America think of how you’re acting?”, stuff like that.)

So when I got to high school and started dating, my mom told me something that sounds funny but in retrospect actually turned out to be really good advice:

“Date someone who treats you the way Captain America would. Never settle for less.” 

And this has actually helped me so much in my dating life, through high school and into my adult years, because even if it’s a little silly, it’s been really helpful to have that standard in the back of my mind when I’m first going into a relationship. 

Would Captain America ignore my calls? Would Captain America forget my birthday? Would Captain America get mad at me for cancelling a date because a family emergency came up? If the answer is no, then I know that the person I’m currently dating does not meet my standards, and that I need to break things off before they get too serious.

And your standard absolutely does not have to be Captain America, specifically. It can be any person, male or female, real or fictional, who is known for being respectful and considerate. It can even be an imaginary “soulmate” that you make up yourself. The point is to have a specific idea of how you expect to be treated by your romantic partners, and to refuse to compromise or settle for less. (Just make sure you’re holding yourself to the same standards – you can’t expect to date superheroes if you’re going to treat your partners the way a supervillain would.) This is a really good way to keep yourself from falling into bad relationships where you aren’t treated with the respect and care you deserve.

TL;DR: You deserve to date people who are respectful and considerate of you. You deserve a Captain America. Don’t settle for less. 

There are two movies being made rn that feature a romance between a nazi and someone who would have been oppressed by nazis, set during the holocaust. They are called ‘Where Hands Touch’ in which a black woman dates a nazi, and ‘The Exception’ where a nazi dates a Jewish spy. 

These stories seem to call upon the dangerous trope that ‘love heals all’/‘love conquers all’

if someone dehumanizes and oppresses you, dating them will not solve this oppression. these movies attempt to smooth over a genocide with trite romance and it’s gross. It’s so far removed from the reality of the holocaust and I have no idea why hollywood people think this is the type of narrative we need right now.

“maybe Ward is a Nazi but he doesn’t deserve this”

So let me get this straight: grant Ward, a Nazi, a serial rapist, a mass murderer, a torturer and an abuser doesn’t deserve that the actress who plays one of his victims of abuse and terror tells people not to validate Nazis.

idk I think Chloe Bennet doesn’t deserve you tweet at her about how she has broken your heart because she says we shouldn’t date Nazi murderers

I think Daisy Johnson doesn’t deserve to have her most popular ship with a Nazi murderers who abused her and tried to kill everybody she loved and she doesn’t deserve to have millions of graphics sexualizing her fear and suffering at the hands of a man she repeatedly has said she hated and have you assholes explain how “deep down she wants him” and we shouldn’t listen to a thing she says

but that’s just mean

?????? explain ¿¿¿¿¿

“i will always ship Skyeward”

Proudly declaring on social media you will always ship a racist pro-abuse ship that exonerates Nazis and rapists and celebrates the suffering and fear of a woman of color, you’re such an inspiration

“because he will always be the first love of Skye”

many things to unpack here:

  1. whatever feelings Daisy had for Ward they were for fake!Ward, for a fabrication intended to manipulate and take advantage of her. Daisy will never consider her Nazi abuser who kidnapped her, hurt her and threatened to rape her her first love or anything like that
  2. Daisy never said love, she liked the dude, they didn’t even date, sorry but what the fuck, they didn’t even date
  3. Daisy was in a committed relationship with someone for years before meeting Ward, so assuming he was her “first” anything is pretty dismissive and gross. she cared for Miles enough that she was willing to risk her chance her place in the team (ie her chance to find out about her parents) to warn him
  4. HER NAME IS DAISY

Chloe: “Who’s Brett Ward is a Nazi I don’t ship that and neither should you, guys don’t date nazis.”

Brett: *long sustained fart noise instead of coherent thought* “well time to post something for her birthday hmmm what to say…”

Now I love inglorious basterds for a lot of reasons

But one of the many reasons is that the “nice guy” who doggedly pursues a girl shows himself to be a total asshole in the end.

Like.

Ok so for those of you who have never seen the movie it’s basically a war film where Americans try and kill Hitler.

That’s the basic plot of the movie.

There is a side plot however, in which a Jewish woman who runs a theater tries to assassinate Hitler as well.

Then there’s this guy who stars in one of the Nazi propaganda films that she plays for Hitler on its premiere night.

Ok so throughout the movie he’s very polite and charming and he responds to her rejections with Grace.

He seems like a very sweet man, is very attractive, and you wonder why she doesn’t give into his advances. But then you realize he IS a Nazi war hero so he was killing Allied soldiers.

And THEN at the end, he comes to the back of the theater and he seems very polite but then when she rejects him once more, he gets angry and very rude.

He barges into the room uninvited and she tells him that he hurt her but he responds oh wow you can feel something? And this is such a great moment because all this time you think oh he’s a gentleman he’s just a kind a guy and he deserves to get the girl in the end!

And even if you didn’t, you knew that she already had a lover and that she was a Jew so would never date a Nazi.

But it’s really great because it shows that even though he seems like a very friendly man he’s actually a huge dick.

He expects this beautiful woman to fall in love with him just because he stays at it. He thinks she’s just playing hard to get.

And when he realizes that she doesn’t have time for his shit he gets angry and expects her to give him what he wants.

He is the epitome of a nice guy who believes he deserves everything just because he’s decent and polite.

my favorite part is when he says I came up here to do what I’m best at: annoy you.

Here’s the thing. That kind of shit is some high school/frat boy bullshit.

“Ha ha this girl is mad at me clearly this is sexual tension.”

No. She just thinks you’re an asshole. The fact that you’re disregarding her obvious feelings of discomfort and irritation just shows how much of an asshole you are.

He thinks he’s being cute but she’s busy trying to murder his boss. She tells and shows him multiple times that she is not interested.

She’s not polite. She’s not kind. She never falters.

She. Has. Business. She does not have time for a man’s romantic bullshit. In a way, it’s almost like a parody, a la Quentin Tarantino, of how a story like this normally would go.

Normally the cold girl softens and warms up to the sweet and handsome hero.

I mean he’s a Nazi, but he’s a nice Nazi, right so it’s OK?

He was just following orders. He was just a soldier. He deserves a nice girl because he is not as horrible as he could be.

But no.

It spits in the face of that trope.

She never wants him. She never warms to him.

He gets angry and shows what a dick he is. So even though he seemed nice in the beginning the fact that he wouldn’t give up is not shown to be endearing or romantic, but harmful and annoying.

I love this movie.
