One Thing (Among Many) That I Really Appreciated About Wonder Woman

I was ready to go into Wonder Woman, fully expecting Steve Trevor’s story Arc to be “I’m sexist, and by the end of the film Diana will prove me wrong, but until then I’ll be a smarmy jerk boy.”  I was waiting for a “Woman can’t do X” joke or Steve being incredulous at her abilities and having it be played for laughs.  I was waiting for it, to clench my teeth and get through it.

BUT WHO BOY HOWDY WAS I WRONG AND I AM SO GLAD

becuase from the moment Steve “Ride or Die” Trevor washes up on Amazon Island of Buff Chicks he is 100% there for Diana.  He treats her as an equal, is supportive of her power, follows her into battle, and is only critical of her when he’s concerned for her safety, and even then does what he can to help her push forward anyway.  I wasn’t expecting to leave the theater having a lot of feelings about Steve Trevor but HOOOOO DOGGY. 

Like Steve is such a breath of fresh air.  After sitting through film after film of of stubborn, borish, snarky, sarcastic men that we’re supposed to revere as heroes, I’m so so thankful that we get Steve Trevor, who is a warrior who believes in the best of people, who willingly embraces vulnerability and the Lasso of Truth, who believes in self-sacrifice and that human beings are inherently good, who above all believes in, supports, relies on, follows, and loves Wonder Woman. 

ITS LIKE A WOMAN DIRECTED THIS MOVIE OR SOMETHING, FINALLY DEPICTING A HEROIC MAN OF WOMAN’S DESIRES, AS OPPOSED TO A HEROIC MAN OF WHAT MEN THINK IS WOMEN’S DESIRES

Someday,
someone will
hold my hand
so gentle—
not so tight,
someday
someone will
look directly
in my eyes
and tell me
the words
I’ve been
waiting
to hear.

He will
bring back
the stars
in my sky.
And the flowers
in my garden
that had dried.

Someday,
someone will
never let me go.
And I’ll be glad
to stay with him
forever.

In this hug there is everything; love and care, comfort and concern, there is ’I am just so happy you’re alive' and there is ’I just want to keep you safe' and then with the little smile, there is relief and warmth, family and solace.
