war-fighting

gay culture is fucking weeping at how coran lost his entire planet and culture, as well as the man he was either friends or lovers with, only to have to fight a war against someone he most likely knew personally, and having to watch the teenage girl he must think of as a daughter tear herself apart to stay strong and lead a bunch of strangers against a seemingly undefeatable enemy

anonymous asked:

I think Lauren is on the verge of exploding from all the hate and from her own resentment towards her current predicament. Her likes and posts have gone from subtle passive aggressive to downright fuck it fuck you fuck everyone since Tyren started and it worries me. I'm still shaken up from Chester's suicide so it hurts so much just to think this label and fandom might be pushing her towards the edge too

Wow I think you’re taking this way too far sweets - you can’t compare Chester and Lauren, those are two completely different people with completely different lives - I’m not saying that those comments don’t have a negative effect on Lauren, of course they do, but to her credit she has quite the fighting spirit - I just sincerely hope that she’ll decide to stay away from social medias all together instead of fighting a war she can’t win

Me, a part of the lgtbq+ community and a Supercorp shipper, after reading about the shitstorm that’s going on after comic con about Jeremy Jordan and deciding that this is a discussion I absolutely do not want to be a part of. I just came here to have fun with a cool show and ship two fictional people and watch their fandom’s creativity blossom in stories, AU’s and GIF/photo manips because of it. I did not came here to fight a war about if a show would be homophobic or not. Everyone needs to hakuna their tatas for a minute, geez.

Because I've noticed a lot of backlash about a particular ship, I've felt it's time to make a post about this

What people are failing to comprehend about this ship is the background behind the death of Moon’s mom. So since people like picking and choosing canon, let’s look at the facts that canon has provided for us, shall we?

Yes, it sucks that a 14 year old had to lose her mom, but you want to know what else sucks? Being treated like the minority. Having your land FORCEFULLY TAKEN FROM YOU and not having enough food for you and your family because it’s been stolen from your oppressors. Toffee and the rest of the monsters had to go through ALL OF THAT. That is no different from the racism and homophobia that goes on today. And whats worse, their fight for freedom escalated to the point where lives were lost. So when you’re fighting a war for equality, no, you’re not going to think about the other side and whoever you’re hurting through their death.

Toffee is a damn good villain for many reasons. However, that alone shouldn’t stop anybody from shipping whoever they want. And if you don’t like it because you think its bad, then fine. But don’t go painting it as you trying to protect characters (Fictional characters, mind you) who have already proven that they are more then capable of protecting themselves in ANY situation.

had everything been the same except diana not been present, hippolyta would have definitely sent someone with steve trevor if not just gone herself to fight the war. the reason she hesitated is because she KNEW it was ares and she KNEW that diana, who was her daughter essentially, who she raised and loved and protected for years,would potentially die. like that is such a motherly thing, you love your daughter so much that you are willing to let the world burn if it means keeping her safe. and ultimately she knows in her heart diana will go anyway. because that’s who diana is, that’s who hippolyta raised her to be. good and wise. strong and passionate.

I’d like to believe that the reason that the Amazons have the most EXTRA fighting style in existence is because they’re a warrior people with no war to fight so instead of just doing basic training like normal people, Antiope is like, “And now I’m going to teach you how to BACKFLIP off of a MOVING HORSE,” because they have to fill their time somehow. 

Batman vs Superman was over two hours of two men bickering over who has the biggest brooding cock-I mean, who has the better method of "saving" people and whether or not it's ok for Batman to beat and brand criminals without regarding the fact that not everyone's as wealthy and privileged as his morally upright ass and for Superman to ignore the fact that not everyone's as indestructible as him, meanwhile Wonder Woman over here...

Ok.

Wonder Woman was vastly superior to bvs for two reasons.

-Wonder Woman is actually a likable lady and an idealistic believable super hero who doesn’t spend her entire moving thinking about how she COULD help people.

She charges in, headfirst, wanting to help people she doesn’t even KNOW because she wants to protect the people who’re dying.

-and Wonder Woman was just so much more subtle and less pretentious about its message.

Seriously.

Let’s talk.

Wonder Woman’s CHARACTER is not that she’s cold and heartless and…well, masculine.

She doesn’t EMULATE men.

She doesn’t need to act like a man to be strong.

She coos at a baby and kisses Chris Pine and doesn’t spend the entire movie ragging on women.

She dresses and acts feminine, and embodies kindness, grace, beauty, everything “feminine.”

And she’s also strong as fucking hell.

That is Wonder Woman.

She’s a good person.

She’s not some cold warrior goddess, an untouchable female shaped ideal.

She’s GENUINELY KIND.

She sees people suffering in the trenches and her first thought it, stop what we’re doing, we gotta help.

Chris pine and all of his men?

They’ve seen all of this.

They’ve hardened themselves to the horrors of war and accepted them as inevitable.

But Diana, new to the cruelty of the human world, is disgusted and she asks what’s wrong with you?

What is wrong with us?

We have accepted casualties. We have accepted pain.

We have excused suffering because we told ourselves long ago that we couldn’t do anything about it.

But Diana?

She does not accept that.

She fights, yes. She’s ferocious and she, unlike Batman, doesn’t have a compulsion against killing.

She was raised by warrior women, I mean come on.

But who does she fight for?

The women and children who did nothing wrong.

The injured, hopeless men fighting a war to end all wars.

The entire movie was lovely because all of Diana’s bewilderment at the way humans live was incredible.

She’s shocked at how dirty London is.

She’s not impressed by sex and she’s not impressed by war.

She thinks sexism is strange.

But she doesn’t like, rag on it, because Diana is literally so above it that she just wryly questions it at times.

Like I don’t care what all the whiny fanboys say.

There’s not an overt feminist message in this movie.

There’s no “men are so weak.”

There’s “men are corruptible” but as we see, Diana sees them as worth saving in the end, if only to fulfill her own ideals…

Which is feminist as fuck, I guess, because Diana doesn’t defend men because it’s her job.

She defends them because it’s her decision. Her morality. Her duty.

But the feminism in the movie comes from the fact that she’s so kind.

She breaks down when realizing that Ares isn’t behind it all, that MEN are the ones who are cruel to one another.

She sees the war and it’s only senseless violence to her.

All of the people she wants to help are the victims, and it’s clear cut, to her, who’s bad and who’s not.

But Chris Pine helps her realize that humans aren’t so clear cut.

And so even though she was disgusted by human actions, she still wanted to help the people in need.

I absolutely adore the scene where she’s charging across a battle field to pave the way to the town.

First off, it was so badass watching her knock aside artillery like it was nothing as the men cowered in the pits.

Second, SHE SAW THAT PEOPLE WERE SUFFERING AND SHE DIDNT CALCULATE.

She didn’t do a Batman, where she looked at the risks vs the benefits vs the needs of the many and the few.

She just charged in and did what she could.

Chris Pine told her she couldn’t do anything except help him with his plan, in order to stop the war and save them indirectly.

But Diana is a true warrior with the heart of a lion, man.

She helped them directly, with no nonsense, no politicizing, no planning, just action.

At the end she says love will save humanity?

That’s the kind of feminism Wonder Woman was embodying.

Wonder Woman wasn’t this lone independent operator who sneers at men who try to involve themselves in her business.

She was helped and supported by men, but it was clear that she was the star, the true hero who brought them and their plans together but also gave them a new hope, a new heart.

They were jaded by helplessness and mortal frustration, forced to fight to stand stills and accept human deaths.

She came and showed them something miraculous and wonderful: her power.

But not used to beat someone’s head in with a fucking sink.

Used to do good.

To fight for her morals, which aren’t corrupted by the human world’s greyness, not yet.

I loved this movie.

I loved this movie so much.

DC finally did good and we can stop pretending suicide squad and Batman vs superman were good.

Wonder Woman is the good DC movie.

Don’t even try to tell me BVS was better than Wonder Woman because if you genuinely believe that, either out of pride and obstinacy from all your bickering with marvel fans or out of delusional worshipping of anything DC, then I think you just like watching people beat people in slow motion and uncomfortably lofty , corporate-cut and stylized plots as interesting as watching a landscape time lapse.

Suicide squad was cut to bits by its editors, BVS suffered from some severe Snyder wanking, and justice league, I don’t know, we’ll see.

But Wonder Woman?

Best DC movie since dark knight.

God bless Patty.

I knew we needed a woman in charge to get the job done.

Now direct all sexist comments and sneering remarks about feminazis destroying your precious super hero genre with their “love” themes to my inbox where they’ll be lovingly deleted.

musicals in real life
  • hamilton: why are we singing we should be fighting a war
  • dear evan hansen: why are all these emails written in rhyming couplets.
  • 21 chump street: you know, you could try some actual pick up lines instead of repeating "what the heck i gotta do" seven times.
  • heathers: Queen of High School Gets Her Own Theme Song - And a Twist! (You Won't Believe What She Drank!)
  • be more chill: why are you ominously singing to me about some computer drug? why is the computer drug ominously singing to me?

If I had to pick one aspect of Wonder Woman that I really liked that hasn’t already been enthused over at length:

The fight on the beach between the Amazons and the Germans which managed to avoid both  the “untouchable fairy warriors” and  the “mechanized weapons obliterate savages with spears” tropes

Like – the amazons definitely won that one hands down, and they won it with arrows and swords against machine guns. But it hurt them to do it. They took casualties. That victory cost.  And that’s important, because it puts their refusal to leave Themyscira to join into the war into a more realistic perspective. If the Amazons had curbstomped the Germans and walked away without a scratch, then their refusal to get involved would have seemed… kinda selfish honestly, at the very least entirely a decision of principle and stubbornness rather than an actual consideration of the logistics. The amazons are warriors, yes, but they’ve got their own charge and their own business. They aren’t here to fight your wars for you.

But also, yes,  the badass ladies in the leather kilts and headdresses with arrows and knives kicked the crap out of a modernized infantry force with guns, because guns are not the be-all and end-all of combat.
