Okay, but imagine the first time Steve and Bucky hear the term “feminazi.” Some dudebro at a convention or public event the team is forced to go to calls a woman a feminazi, and Steve and Bucky just lose it and startyelling at the guy because they’ve lost friends to actual Nazis, and a woman standing up for her rights as a human being is not comparable to slaughtering millions of people.
Having just completed my
second watch of this episode I have to say I am slightly stunned. I guess the best
way to put it is ‘not what I expected’. But then what did I really expect? I
was expecting pain, heartbreak, drama, interspersed with some humour and a big
“no homo” scene to counteract last episode. I was expecting some dudebro Dean
to appease certain types of viewer, along with a nice helping of deep subtext
into Dean analysis for us to eat up that would go straight over that type of
viewers head. I was certainly not expecting… Larry.
I haven’t looked at
tumblr yet, except to glance at my askbox. I assume that you are all suitably
going mad over Larry. Over the implications of Larry. Over the sheer insanity
of the episodes biggest innuendo fuelled moments and probably laughing about
it. I expect a hundred gifsets. I want to reblog those gifsets. I am also sure
that Larry has already been meta’d to death… But what’s the harm in a little
more meta to add to the massive pile gonna do? Because I wanna meta the FUCK
out of Larry.
But there is a lot more
to this episode than just Larry. We did get heartbreak. We did get drama and we
did get some really nice character moments. Rowena particularly was amazing
this episode (who am I kidding though she is always amazing) and I loved
learning more about her thoughts. Overall I think it was entertaining, though not
one of the best episodes, but that could be because the writing was a bit
sloppy and sometimes the story didn’t make sense. I’ll get to why in a bit.
Let’s just say that Meredith Glynn isn’t my favourite of the new writers by any
means. I didn’t even review The One
You’ve Been Waiting For because I didn’t feel particularly inspired by it
But having said that she
gave us Larry, and for that I will forever be thankful… even if she didn’t
intend for us to take it the way I have (and I am guessing most of you reading
this have too).
Um, I didn’t actually mean to make Root such a giraffe, and I definitely did NOT want Shaw to look so much like Sarah (or did I?). Anyway, this is better than Amy’s character marrying some gross dudebro in MacWhatever.
Today at work some dudebro tried to quiz me about how to make a drink. At Starbucks. I am a fully qualified barista. At Starbucks. In fact I’m so qualified that I train OTHER people to be qualified baristas. And this guy, this neckbeard asshole, wearing a walking dead t-shirt has the AUDACITY to come into my store, my dojo, order a ‘tuxedo mocha’ and ask me to tell him ‘how i think it’s made’. And then, AND THEN, has the nerve to tell me that he’s, and I quote, ‘surprised you know what it is, most baristas don’t know the secret menu’ !!!???!!!!!? Like, listen here Ezekiel, you come into my cafe, my coffee kingdom, and insult my expansive coffee knowledge because you think no one knows what your basic ass half white mocha half regular mocha princess drink is? Like I’m some fake gamer girl but with coffee??? Unbelievable. Absolutely unbelievable.
There are a lot of racists here. Please feel free to ignore them and call them out if you see them in the tags.
90% of Heathen books are crap, always read with caution.
We have a ton of dudebros, a ton of dudebros. Some of these dudebros present themselves as knowledgeable people. Always read with caution.
Northern Tradition Paganism is not Heathen, nor does it advertise itself as such (although it is a valid tradition like any other). Be extra cautious, as they have a tendency to pass their UPG off as fact. Always read with caution.
Folkishness is racism. Don’t be fooled, the debate isn’t between folkish and universalist Heathenry, it’s between racism-lite and non-racist (or perhaps racially-aware) Heathenry
Heathenry is open, it was open, and it will always be open
Ignore the graphics that state that “we don’t kneel before our gods” this is bullshit
The Nine Noble Virtues are also bullshit
See what I did? I made number nine about the Nine Noble Virtues
Seriously though, we REALLY need to take a page from Kemetics about not being a dick
i’m not even going to lie sometimes i’d rather listen to a bigoted conservative asshole just tell me straight up how much they hate me just for existing than hear a straight white liberal dudebro spew some backhanded garbage about how oppressed people are complicit in their own harassment and need to somehow censor themselves to appease their oppressors because like….. idk at least conservatives are really forward about how much they hate you instead of wrapping it up in pseudo-liberal garbage
Chilling at the casino, reading my book in an area that I can see the TV from so I can keep an eye on the score of the hockey game. Seats are limited, but there is one open near me. Some dudebros come up, looking for a place to guzzle beer and waste oxygen. I’m nearing the end of a chapter and contemplating getting up and doing something else once I’ve finished.
Dude 1, to friend: “You can have that seat there, I’ll stand until something else opens up.”
Dude 2, in an utterly dazzling fit of maturity: “I don’t want to sit by HER.” (Clearly meaning me, as I’m surrounded by men at this point.)
Me, without missing a beat: “Nobody wants to sit by you either, fuckwit.”
And with that I put my purse down on the empty chair next to me and started the next chapter.
I gave the seat to a nice older gentleman who clearly has no problem sitting next to me.
can you imagine steve and bucky walking down the street hand-in-hand with big hoodies and hats so they’re all hidden and stuff and some jackass dudebro yells any number of slurs and steve just turning around and taking the hat off and saying, ’excuse me?’
and bucky’d turn and join in but he’s trying not to laugh at the thought of this rude fuck shitting himself because he’s about to be publicly scolded over his ugly homophobia by captain fucking america

Is it worth watching RWBY if I want queer rep? My straight friends tell me it's good, but I heard that it queerbaits.
there aren’t any visible/confirmed queer characters yet, but many things point toward them making the relationship between two of the four main girls (Blake and Yang) canon. and I’m actually fairly confident myself that it will be.
for one, because roosterteeth is one of the most queer-positive companies I’ve ever seen. like every second person working there is queer; one of the girls’ voice actresses is bi herself, and RWBY’s creator, Monty, heavily based the characters off of their voice actresses in many ways, so he could have also taken her sexuality into account. Monty also said from the beginning that he wanted an lgbt relationship/lgbt characters and that Remnant is an lgbt friendly world.
it’s also not like having canon queer characters, even in the main cast, would be such an outrageous thing for rooster teeth to do, as some dudebros like to exclaim, because they’ve already done it. there are two canon lesbians(?)/wlw in Red vs Blue that I know of, one confirmed in the show and the other off-screen. there are more lgbt characters in Red vs Blue, but those are the ones I know of, I don’t watch the show myself. the main character of one of their newest shows, Day 5, is also a lesbian. so really, they’re definitely not opposed to it. they even have an entire lgbt panel at their convention.
