Get your first look at Paul Rudd as Scott Lang in Marvel’s “Ant-Man,” now in production in San Francisco and in theaters July 17, 2015!

I have never been this unexcited for set pics :-/Without Janet, why the fuck even bother with this movie?

I… Cannot bring myself to care. At all.

I have seen every Marvel movie multiple times in theaters.  Want to know how many times I saw Avengers. Marvel?
13.
Thirteen times.  My friends and I had a contest, it was a JOKE.  ”How many times have you seen Avengers?”  Not ‘if.’  ’How many times?’
We’re all female, Marvel.  We’re girls.  And we weren’t really psyched by the lack of female characters you gave us, but you know what?  We were reassured by the ones you did.  We dealt.  We tolerated.  We waited patiently.
And when you announced Ant-Man, I told myself, at least we’ll get Jan.  Jan, who was one of the BEST parts of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.  Jan, the funny, sassy, fashion obsessed, girly-girl who wanted to be a hero, who didn’t need someone’s death to motivate her, who didn’t need someone to suffer for her to want to do what’s right.
Janet Van Dyne, who gave the Avengers their name.  I told myself, it would be worth it.  For Jan.
And then you pulled this.
I will not see Ant-Man.  I will not blog about your dumb ‘white boy pain’ movie.  You fridged one of the most iconic female super heroes in your canon, off-screen, to further manpain.
40+% of your audience for “Guardians of the Galaxy” was women.  And girls.  Little girls like my nieces, who deserve heroes of their own.  How sad that you’re determined not to give them to us.
Boycott Ant-Man.  That’s my tag.  Boycott Ant-Man.  Until we get Carol.  And Jennifer.  And Heather.  And Misty.  And Angela.  Until we get Monica.  And Patsy.  And Greer.  Until we get Sersi.  And Jessica.  And Kate.  And America.
Until we get females in your movies that aren’t killed to further a man’s path to heroism, because why else would we want to do the right thing?
Until we get Jan.
Boycott Ant-Man.

TWISTING CLASSICAL CHARACTERS LIKE DORIAN GRAY INTO A HOMOSEXUAL

Son, you might want to be sitting down for this one.

Dorian Gray was so gay the book was literally used as evidence in the author’s trial for sodomy.

And it’s back. I don’t’ know whether to collapse with laughter or with horror. I think both will do.

Oh dear.

What show was it even referring to?!

Author John Scalzi was on a roll this morning (currently 7:14 AM, 26 Sept. 2014) with a tweet he found from some guy sending out an “ultimatum” to women to “make a choice” between feminism and, well, men like him. So Scalzi launched into a truly magnificent set of scorchers, which I’m posting here for the delectation of people everywhere.

Also: I would like to thank that guy for setting the ultimatum. It makes finding a boyfriend so much easier when the undesirable ones wear a placard identifying themselves.

"The tragedy of that poor boy’s life is not the realization that he’s not the grand prize he’s assumed, but that he’s not even second place."

Read the guy parts in Gaston’s voice

"It’s never, never, never the woman’s fault. No man has a right to raise a hand to a woman. No means no. […] The one regret I have is we call it domestic violence as if it’s a domesticated cat. It is the most vicious form of violence there is, because not only the physical scars are left, the psychological scars that are left. This whole culture for so long has put the onus on the woman. What were you wearing? What did you say? What did you do to provoke? That is never the appropriate question."

I live in one of these squished bugs.

This set really exemplifies just how ridiculously useless the DC Metro is, even without incorporating the screwed up schedules, ridiculously slow trains (because they still haven’t replaced the cars with safer ones because money what?), and the regular blood sacrifices that throw rush hour into disarray…

I’m working on a story where the shape of the Chicago El tracks is actually a magical sign intended to keep supernatural evil out of the city. (Plain old human evil is all over this town, but that keeps things interesting.)
Think about that the next time you ride a subway. :D

A FAT LITTLE GIRL
is eight years old, she’s got pink cheeks that her grandmother calls chubby. She wants a second cookie but her aunt says “you’ll get huge if you keep eating.” She wants a dress and the woman in the changing room says “she’ll probably need a large in that.” She wants to have dessert and her waiter says “After all that dinner you just had? You must be really hungry!” and her parents laugh.

A FAT LITTLE GIRL
is eleven and she is picked second-to-last in gym class. She watches a cartoon and sees that everyone who is annoying is drawn with a big wide body, all sweaty and panting. At night she dreams she is swelling like the ocean over seabeds. When she wakes up, she skips school.

A FAT LITTLE GIRL
is thirteen and her friends are stick-thin ballerinas with valleys between their hipbones. She is instead developing the wide curves of her mother. She says she is thick but her friends argue that she’s “muscular” and for some reason this hurts worse than just admitting that she jiggles when she walks and she’ll never be a dancer. Eating seconds of anything feels like she’s breaking some unspoken rule. The word “indulgent” starts to go along with “food.”

A FAT LITTLE GIRL
is fourteen and she has stopped drinking soda and juice because they bloat you. She always takes the stairs. She fidgets when she has to sit still. Whenever she goes out for ice cream, she leaves half at the bottom - but someone else always leaves more and she feels like she’s falling. She pretends to like salad more than she does. She feels eyes burrowing through her body while she eats lunch. Kate Moss tells her nothing tastes as good as skinny feels, but she just feels like she is wilting.

A FAT LITTLE GIRL
is fifteen the first time her father says “you’re getting gaunt.” She rolls her eyes. She eats one meal a day but thinks she stays the same size. Every time she picks up a brownie she thinks of the people she sees on t.v. and every time she has cake, she thinks of the one million magazine articles on restricting calories. She used to have no idea a flat stomach was supposed to be beautiful until she saw advice on how to achieve it. She cuts back on everything. She controls. They tell her she’s getting too thin but she doesn’t believe it.

A FAT LITTLE GIRL
is sixteen and tearing herself into shreds in order for a thigh gap big enough to hush the screams in her head. She doesn’t “indulge,” ever. She can’t go out with friends, they expect her to eat. She damns her sweet tooth directly to hell. It’s coffee for breakfast and tea for lunch and if there’s dance that evening, two cups of water and then maybe an apple. She lies all the time until she thinks the words will rot her teeth. She dreams about food when she sleeps. Her aunt begs her to eat anything, even just a small cookie. They say, “One bite won’t make you fat, will it, darling?”

A FAT LITTLE GIRL
is seventeen and too sick to go to prom because she can’t stand up for very long. She thinks she wouldn’t look good in a dress anyway. Her nails are blue and not because they are painted. Her hair is too thin to do anything with. She’s tired all the time and always distracted. She once absently mentions the caloric value of grapes to the boy she is with and he looks at her like she’s gone insane and in that moment she realizes most people don’t have numbers constantly scrolling in their heads. She swallows hard and tries to figure out where it all went wrong, why more than a granola bar for a meal makes her feel sick, why she tastes disease and courts with death. She misses sleep. She misses being able to dream. She misses being herself instead of just being empty.

A FAT LITTLE GIRL
is twenty and writes poetry and is a healthy weight and still fights down the voices every single day. She puts food in her mouth and sometimes cries about it but more and more often feels good, feels balanced. Her cheeks are pink and they are chubby and soft and no longer growing slight fur. Her hair is long and it is beautiful. She still picks herself apart in the mirror, but she’s starting to get better about it. She wears the dress she likes even if it only fits her in a large and she doesn’t feel like a failure for it. She is falling in love with the fat on her hips.

She is eating out with friends and not worrying about finding the lowest calorie item on the menu when she hears a mother tell her four year old daughter “You can’t have ice cream, we just had dinner.
You don’t want to end up as a fat little girl.”

I got dressed in my traditional Indian regalia, but there was a man, he was the producer of the whole show. He took that speech away from me and he warned me very sternly. “I’ll give you 60 seconds or less. And if you go over that 60 seconds, I’ll have you arrested. I’ll have you put in handcuffs.”

- Sacheen Littlefeather in Reel Injun (2009), dir. Neil Diamond.

They were MAD, CONFUSED AND PRESSED that Marlon Brando would betray White Supremacy in this way.

To this very day, they are TWISTED over this.

And when Littlefeather got up there and READ THEM FOR FILTH, they GAGGED. For eons.

So I imagine there are people like me out there who’ve never even heard of Marlon Brando and are extremely confused over why this is important.

Marlon Brando was the Don in The Godfather, and in 1973, he was nominated for and won an Academy Award for it. However, he was also a huge Natives rights activist, and boycotted the ceremony because he felt that Hollywood’s depictions of Native Americans in the media led to the Wounded Knee Incident (which I was always taught as “the second massacre at Wounded Knee” but apparently that’s not the real name). He sent Sacheen Littlefeather, an Apache Native rights activist, in his stead. Wikipedia’s article on her explains the rest:

Brando had written a 15-page speech for Littlefeather to give at the ceremony, but when the producer met her backstage he threatened to physically remove her or have her arrested if she spoke on stage for more than 60 seconds.[5] Her on-stage comments were therefore improvised. She then went backstage and read the entire speech to the press. In his autobiography My Word is My BondRoger Moore (who presented the award) claims he took the Oscar home with him and kept it in his possession until it was collected by an armed guard sent by the Academy.

That is what this gifset is about.

You have GOT to read up on this. The Wounded Knee Incident, Marlon Brando and Sacheen Littlefeather, Anna Mae Aquash. ALL OF IT.

DEAR EMMA WATSON
Where was MY right to decide what to do with my body? It wasn’t in the room where my parents paid a doctor to cut the skin off my penis when I was a mere minutes old!!
I bet your clit and vulva are still intact.
Tell me again how oppressed you are by this patriarchy?

Dear thewhoviantheatregeek
Please do not belittle female circumcision by comparing it to male circumcision. 
Male circumcision is not done to oppress men or destroy their sexuality but for either religious or health reasons. Removing the foreskin does not prevent sex, or damage the penis. You were not genetically mutilated.
Female circumcision involves removing the clitoris, or the vulva, sometimes it involves cutting the inside of the vagina and sowing it shut so that it heals over. Sometimes all of the above. It is oppressive, it is always painful and often fatal, and is still practised in many countries around the world with the goal of oppressing women under extreme patriarchal regimes.
Emma Watson may not suffer from those regimes directly in the way you’re referring to, but she spoke very frankly about how she has had a very privileged life. She is using that privilege to stand up for those who are not as fortunate. 
Tell me again how you are helping by making it about you?



People like this are honestly so awful lmao.
