“Fleur Delacour, whose whole narrative is wrapped up in her physical beauty until the point where she stands up and says hey, it’s not. Fleur Delacour, the Beauxbaxton’s champion, Fleur Delacour who stands with the Order, Fleur Delacour who loves and fights with fierce devotion […] How is this someone to hate?” (x)
((okay, listen, guys. just because the FCC repealed net neutrality does not mean it’s going through. y’all with me?
these things have to go through court, and i believe congress are the ones who actually decide if something goes through or not. this is the whole checks and balances system our government is supposed to have. it’s to prevent one party (i.e. president, house, senate) from having all the power and making all the decisions on their own.
feel free to correct me on this, but we still have a chance, my dudes. so don’t panic yet. pester congress, your representatives, all that shit. repealing net neutrality has already been denied twice by them, so it’s fully possible they’ll deny it again, and our internet will stay the same.
don’t stop fighting, but also, don’t feel like the fight is over, because it isn’t! don’t send yourselves into a panic quite yet. we’ve got this. money speaks, yes, but we can show those douchebags that our voices speak more. they’re supposed to be for the people, aren’t they?
MARVEL what’s your deal with the Scarlet Witch Erasure?
I love Sharon Carter and think she was a great addition to the movies…but lets get real here, it is totally not okay to erase a Scarlet Witch from ALL group merch in favour of a character who wasn’t actually part of the main battle arc.
This is the big ‘versus’ team shot and you benched one of your starting line-up and brought in a cheerleader by mistake because you thought the ‘dress code’ was darks and darks…
…and no I’m not belittling Sharon and her involvement in Civil War. She’s a strong, capable woman who knows how to kick ass and when to lay down some sass, but in this analogy she’s not one of the players on the team, she’s the one on the sidelines cheering on her chosen team.
And it’s not just one or two items. Every ‘Team Cap’ piece of merch I find has Scarlet Witch completely gone with Sharon Carter flying into action instead.
…like this Civil War Activity/Sticker book…
Yep, that’s right…the team consists of Steve, Clint, Sam, Bucky…and Sharon
More Agent 13 Stickers…and still no Scarlet Witch…
Even an Agent 13 activity page!
I love Sharon…but how about you give Wanda some love instead of removing her from existence completely?
This is why Marvel fans have so little faith in you…because you remember the male heroes yet still believe the female characters are interchangeable and that no one will care as long as we have A girl there to represent.
people that voted for donald and all his package deal be like
“They’re ignoring us. It’s like they’re only in it for themselves.”
“This is not how you rule for the People!”
but me over here, furiously writing letters to Reps:
“Yeah, it’s weird how that worked out. It’s like the majority of American citizens knew this was going to be a fuster cluck. You think maybe the predisposition of behavior patterns might have clued most sane people onto something?”
