Advice, Apparently, and Ass: GOTTA LOVE HOW PEOPLE ARE SO QUICK TO SLAM CAPTIAN MARVEL WHEN EVERYONE WAS CHEERING ON WONDER WOMAN. SO MUCH DOUBLE STANDARDS IN THE COMIC BOOK FANDOM IT'S SICKENING. SUPER-HERO-COonFESSIons theamazingcaptainspider: hayley566: waveringwannabevalkyrie: libertarirynn: hayley566: I think I know why that is. It’s because Wonder Woman is more fantasy-esque and Captain Marvel is a more harsh reality. Let me explain, Wonder Woman grew up in a paradise without men or sexism and just now entered the world of man and just now experienced sexism. Carol grew up in the world of man and grew up within this system. That and Wonder Woman takes place further in the past, making it easier to think “wow, back then was awful but we’re way better now” while several comic fans grew up in the 90’s, making it feel not that long ago. While I love both films, I do feel like Captain Marvel took more risks than Wonder Woman in this sense and I applaud it for that. Miss me with that nonsense. The Carol we see at the start of the film only remembers her life on a planet where men and women were equally trained combatants and as far as we can tell have the respect of their male peers. Yes she was technically born on earth but until the latter half of the film she doesn’t remember that part. Her personality is shaped by the world that she remembers. And how is it “taking risks” to have a character that’s almost completely invulnerable and whose only “flaw” is not realizing how awesome she actually is, even though she was already practically all powerful? How is it taking risks to have a character who basically never learns or grows and is just already a badass who dispatches all enemies with little to no difficulty? Diana had to face defeat and the possibility that her simplistic belief in justice and the existence of war need to be re-examined. She had to work with others and listen to wisdom and advice in order to make informed decisions. She was powerful, but not invulnerable. She was relatable and likable. She didn’t go around being cold and rude to people for no damn reason and ooze pretension with every word she spoke. Y'all really can’t distinguish fiction from reality huh? I call bullshit on “wOrLd oF mEn” bullshit because CM’s writing was fucking trash. Literally every single fucking man she met besides Nick Fury and the Skrull guy was a complete misogynistic caricature, to the point that her FUCKING DAD’S first reaction to her getting in a go-cart accident was not desperate fear/concern for his only daughter, but to…immediately belittle her? No babe that’s not reality, that’s shit ass writers who have no sense of nuance and no sense of developing villains because “UHHHHH HERO IS WOMAN AND MAN HATE WOMAN SO ALL MEN BAD”.Take another example, the boot camp scene where apparently like 8 white guys have nothing to do except stand around and taunt Carol? Except in real life boot camp no one has fucking time to stand around, your ass is constantly being drilled and harassed by your drill instructor, and all of the recruits are being shaped into a unit to WORK TOGETHER, with everyone being treated equally harshly. (Also, I’m supposed to believe that boot camp back in the 80’s/90’s was unisex?) If it was just Carol training on her own, that again begs the question of why an entire group of guys was just staring at her while she was training instead of I don’t know… doing their own training? Relaxing on base during what little leisure time they had? But those questions don’t matter because the writers didn’t give a damn about reality. They only gave a fuck about pushing their bullshit man hating agenda, strawmanning all men, and creating a situation where Carol was nothing but a poor innocent victim of evil cruel men. They literally only existed to victimize Carol and make all of her behavior seem acceptable because “they were mean to her first, so if she decides to nearly break a man’s hand off and steal his motorcycle later, it’s okay!” That’s not fucking realism, that’s hack writing.Captain Marvel is bad, she’s not even remarkable by the standards of female characters, and quite frankly it’s insulting that you ignore and downplay other, far more iconic and well-written female heroes just because Carol plays to your politics. @waveringwannabevalkyrie “world of man” is a term used in the Wonder Woman comics several times to describe the world outside of themiscrya. That’s why I used it here. I would go over how abusive men do exist, just like abusive women do and how I’ve had my own experiences with an abusive father but from your tone, I think if I explain anymore you would make fun of me or something with the whole “aw you have daddy issues and that’s why you like the movie lol”. I’m so hope you’re not that cruel but knowing the internet, you cannot be safe. I just hope you’re not like those kind of people that I met and are willing to at least understand that just because you don’t experience something doesn’t mean it’s the same for everyone else.@libertarirynn as someone who’s seen the movie, I feel like the struggle was more than just “not knowing how awesome she was.” She was being lied to about her entire life for six years and we even see her have a breakdown upon realizing this. We see her sobbing out in a field over finding all this out. The idea of finally being free from the control of others, whether male or female (people seem to forget that minn-erva was also a villain in the movie) in both a physical and emotional sense. Despite Carol having her memories wiped in the beginning, the audience gets flashes of the sexism she faced growing up. While I love both films, I will say that captain marvel spoke to me more than Wonder Woman because of my own personal experiences and if it didn’t do the same for you guys, that’s fine. I just feel that the movie gets misrepresented or misinterpreted a lot and that it is unfair. It sucks that Wonder Woman is used to bash captain marvel despite the different approaches the movies take towards women’s issues. In fact, that behavior has caused me to like Wonder Woman less and less and I really don’t want that to happen. Not only do I start to see the flaws in the film being put on a pedestal, I become more defensive of the one that’s being misrepresented. I still love the Wonder Woman movie but the internet makes it hard to sometimes.I guess what I’m saying is…I wish fans wouldn’t use one to bash the other. I honestly wasn’t trying to bash Wonder Woman or use captain marvel to do so in my last reply. I was just explaining how one is more successful since it tried to be more palatable while the other took more risks in being a feminist film. I hope you both can see that I am not looking for a fight and am just explaining myself. I hope this helped you understand where I’m coming from and that instead of arguing or throwing insults like what usually happens online, this can be handled amicably.

 A novel from the perspective of a boy who is crushed in
 his father's concrete plant and turns into a paving stone. It
 is his journey from there into the city where he observes a
 great many things as he observes the changes in the
 area where he is laid along a stretch of pavement, e.g
 romances, break ups, quarrels, gentrification etc. He
 learns to deal with people dropping chewing gum and
 cigarette butts onto him, and struggles emotionally when
 the street becomes run-down and more heavy-footed
 unkind people trample over him day and night. The story
 ends on a positive note, as he is transported to a seafront
 and reset on the pavement adjoining a beach, where
 barefoot girls and so on walk on him instead, making him
 happier and turning him into a man, so to speak.

Asian, Bad, and Beef: Imaan Sheikh @sheikhimaan POC: *jokes about white people not seasoning their food and not having rhythm* White people: Have you ever been hated or discriminated against? I have. l've been protested and demonstrated against. dirkapitated-yet-again: jlongbone: sophisticatedfangirling: thewolfman1995: cheshireinthemiddle: livbiv17: mizumanta: livbiv17: mizumanta: livbiv17: livbiv17: raychjackson: lmao yo OMG SO RELEVENT Reblogging AGAIN. 😩 You know having unseasoned food is an actual thing in japan. “Simple flavors” is part of Japanese food culture. No seasoning or just salt. I think we should mock japanese people too. Generalize them as having no taste or ability to cook. And laugh at them if they say it’s racism or childish. The difference is white people colonized—raped, stole and destroyed—other cultures for these seasonings…that they don’t even use ☺️therein lies the irony. Also…not the point of the post…the point is, making fun of white people’s weird shit does not equal racism. I said what I said ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ So staaahp trolling and go read a book maybe. Lady, i have 2 degrees on this. I literally have walls of books on the history of food. White people didnt rape, colonize, steal, or destroy anymore than the Chinese did. And i doubt you would be okay saying this about Asians. People tended to use less seasoning back ghen because food was bred and grown differently. Things like chicken and beef had way more natural flavor, so additional seasonings werent really needed. In fact, for some places, seasonings were typically used by the poor, who were left with bad tasting scraps. Other places had them solely for the rich, since non native spices were incredibly expensive. Just like with Japanese culture, food culture in European cultures are often rely on tradition. Traditional methods are used, even if obsolete from newly available ingredients. It’s why old traditional methods of wine and cheese making are still used today. In fact, simple flavors and limited seasonings are available in a large amount of African dishes. The whole “white people dont season their food” stereotype originated in the US, and is clearly wrong, since European immigrants brought over tons of well seasoned and loved food like pizza, sausages, gyros, literally a ton of well known french dishes. I mean most southern cuisine came from French immigrants, and African slaves and paid servants (who at the time didnt even have access to most spices) simply copied those. The only real nuance is the addition of peppers and things like nutmeg and corn (originating in the americas) which European immigrants had already been using in their recipes. ( Actual soul food that can be entirely credited to African Americans is limited). The point is that the caricature of white people’s cooking being unseasoned is a very real part of reality for other cultures. Japan prides its traditional food with simplistic flavors. As in minimal or no seasoning. So any mocking you have for white people, equally (if not moreso) applies to the Japanese. You clearly don’t think it’s okay to say these same things to Asians, so it is clear that it isnt the action itself that you have a problem with, but the race doing it. Youre a racist. You think just because you mr opinions are popular and other bad activists are on your side, that you are in the right. I think we know from history that a popular opinion isnt always the right one. I’ve seen how you reply to other people who disagree with you and it is so childish. You just tell them to read a book or go to a library without considering their knowledge on the subject.

OMG SO RELEVENT 


Reblogging AGAIN. 😩 


You know having unseasoned food is an actual thing in japan. “Simple flavors” is part of Japanese food culture. No seasoning or just salt. 

I think we should mock japanese people too. Generalize them as having no taste or ability to cook. And laugh at them if they say it’s racism or childish. 


The difference is white people colonized—raped, stole and destroyed—other cultures for these seasonings…that they don’t even use ☺️therein lies the irony. Also…not the point of the post…the point is, making fun of white people’s weird shit does not equal racism. 
I said what I said ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 
So staaahp trolling and go read a book maybe.

Memes, Humana, and Lincoln: Cachorros conseguem entender as emocoes dos donos, diz estudo. Naqueles dias mais difíceis, eles se aproximam com o rabo encolhido e a cabeça baixa, como se oferecessem algum tipo de conforto silencioso aos donos. Coincidência? A ciência acaba de descobrir que não. Os cachorrinhos conseguem, de fato, ler as emoções dos donos e combiná-las com os gestos reproduzidos pelos humanos. Até então, especialistas acreditavam que só nós éramos capazes de compreender emoções complexas como raiva, tristeza e felicidade. O estudo publicado no jornal Biology Letters conta com a participação de pesquisadores da Universidade de Lincoln, no Reino Unido, e também da Universidade de São Paulo. Cada cachorro teve estímulos positivos e negativos, como expressões felizes e bravas, combinadas aos seus respectivos sons. Nesses momentos, os animais passavam mais tempo prestando atenção aos estímulos, como se estivessem criando reproduções mentais daquelas emoções – ou tentando desvendá-las. Para Daniel Mills, um dos autores do estudo, responder ao comando de uma voz enérgica e identificar todas as nuances que expressam uma emoção humana são situações completamente diferentes. “Nosso estudo é o primeiro a comprovar essa capacidade dos cachorros de entender emoções humanas e também de outros cachorros”, afirma o pesquisador. Então, saiba que o seu bichinho consegue sacar quando você está meio para baixo, e é por isso que aquela aproximação carinhosa não é à toa. Existe uma intenção bondosa por trás, viu? O mesmo vale para os dias felizes, quando eles querem compartilhar a alegria do dono. Fonte: virgula.uol.com.br

Até então, especialistas acreditavam que só nós éramos capazes de compreender emoções complexas como raiva, tristeza e felicidade. O estudo publicado no jornal Biology Letters conta com a participação de pesquisadores da Universidade de Lincoln, no Reino Unido, e também da Universidade de São Paulo. Cada cachorro teve estímulos positivos e negativos, como expressões felizes e bravas, combinadas aos seus respectivos sons. Nesses momentos, os animais passavam mais tempo prestando atenção aos estímulos, como se estivessem criando reproduções mentais daquelas emoções – ou tentando desvendá-las. Para Daniel Mills, um dos autores do estudo, responder ao comando de uma voz enérgica e identificar todas as nuances que expressam uma emoção humana são situações completamente diferentes. “Nosso estudo é o primeiro a comprovar essa capacidade dos cachorros de entender emoções humanas e também de outros cachorros”, afirma o pesquisador. Então, saiba que o seu bichinho consegue sacar quando você está meio para baixo, e é por isso que aquela aproximação carinhosa não é à toa. Existe uma intenção bondosa por trás, viu? O mesmo vale para os dias felizes, quando eles querem compartilhar a alegria do dono. Fonte: virgula.uol.com.br

BUT PLEASE be sure that in the midst of using the term, it’s used properly. There is a difference between appropriation and appreciation. The director Ben Mor ( an INDIAN MAN) discussed that his goal in choosing a direction for the video was to make sure a love and appreciation of Indian culture came through loud and clear. 2. Misdirected anger makes me giggle. People mad at Beyonce as though she designed and directed the video. This is Coldplay’s song and video. They gave the green light in the directors vision… You’ve nothing to say about that. The videos (Indian) director as well as the designers involved created the Vision and concept…. You’ve nothing to say about that…. It’s like some of y'all were just waiting for your chance to tell black people they’re guilty of appropriation too. Its Funny how each time we’re vocal about a social justice cause we constantly get hit with a rebuttal consistently trying to point out a fault of ours, while excusing other parties involved. And if I’m wrong…. Why is the discussion in a song beyonce is only featured on, centered around her versus the director/Coldplay….. I welcome outrage, but misdirected bandwagon outrage is a waste of everyone’s time….. Yeah … I think the cultural appropriation discussion on tumblr is way too simplistic. Many people within certain cultures actually consider it an honor for outsiders to wear their clothes, dance like them, etc. my family in Colombia gave my white friends ponchos and told them to wear it in America “to remember us” yet some white girl was horrified at how appropriative it was … Like what do we do in that situation? My mother almost married an Iranian/Turkish guy and people in his circle gave her traditional clothing and even DVDs on how to belly dance (I wish I were making this up lol). My best friend when I was little was Pakistani and the mom would dress me up in their traditional clothing and I would even eat with my hands with them and my dad and grandmother were given tons of jewelry and traditional clothing and were pushed to wear it lmaoo . I’m not even defending Beyoncé all I’m saying is that the discussion of cultural appropriation is extremely simplistic. In your noble attempts to be anti-imperialist I think some of you lose yourself in your theoretical mental acrobatics , disregarding other points of view that are shared by many people in said groups you’re supposedly defending. It’s called theory induced blindness and all I ask is to simply be slightly more open minded in different perspectives. Once again I’m not even defending Beyoncé , this is more about the discussion of CA in general on this one sided ass website. My only critique of the above statements is that you strip Beyoncé of any agency when you blame Coldplay and the director like she’s worth almost half a billion dollars and if she knew something was wrong she could have said something it’s BS to make her the victim IMO she’s a powerful woman legit one of the most influential and powerful singers in history. BUT the director who is of said culture I think personally has a right to promote his culture even if it’s someone who isn’t of that culture. This notion of you must only adhere strictly and purely to your own culture no exceptions is unrealistic and I think misguided in understanding how cultures work and function historically but Idk maybe it’s Cus I studied culture in a more scientific sense so I struggle to really take this CA talk a la tumblr seriously and I’m sorry if this comes off as problematic but I’m trying my best to be open minded and I’m listening. I just think there needs to be more nuance and allowance of gray area on this website. But I’m always in the minority when it comes to that opinion.
