ACTUAL MESSAGE OF (500) DAYS OF SUMMER THAT NO ONE ACTUALLY REALIZES
i had to get hinata to upload this for me because tumblr isnt letting me upload images today but Please
i hated brave and i hate merida the animation was so UGLY and everyone goes on about how revolutionary her hair was while tangled was the pioneer for that kind of thing at least rapunzel’s look semi realistic while merida’s just kinda looked dumb
and it makes me sad that she’s included in the quad of animated babes like i know she’s popular but i love jack and rapunzel and hiccup but no thnx to merida
THIS IS WHAT YOU ARE REALLY SAYING:“I am an angry privileged child who is aroused by the idea of two men together but don’t really care if they are openly depicted as gay or if their pairing contributes to actual gay representation on TV, because I am first and foremost concerned with what entertains and arouses me.
Thus I am angry that American television producers adapted the public domain figure of Sherlock Holmes and utterly failed to take my personal sexual tastes into consideration.
So I say that Elementary is homophobic.
Because I am a privileged child, I only look at the cultural influence of a show in a larger social context if it takes away or threatens my personal fetishes.
I do not care that they chose to cast a woman in a lead role.
I do not care that they chose to cast a woman of colour in a lead role.
I do not care that they chose to cast a woman of colour in the role of a person who is completely and utterly undefined by her race.
I do not care that they chose to cast a woman in a lead role opposite a man in a partnership that does not and will never (according to the producers) involve a romantic relationship.
I do not care about all of these things because I am not aroused by nor fetishize heterosexual pairings, asexual pairings, women, Asians, or people of colour in general.
Instead, I call Elementary homophobic because it fails to provide an ostensibly straight white male pairing for me to project homosexual behaviour onto.
And I do not worry about Sherlock’s lack of homosexual representation because it feeds my fetishes - because I ultimately only care about what gets me off, and if I can whine about not having that while simultaneously connecting myself to a larger social dilemma about which I know little in a way that might possibly make me look smart and important? When I am really just the opposite? Well why the fuck not?”
It’s not homophobic. It’s misogynist.
Joan was a surgeon. Because women can’t be soldiers.
Joan lost her job for malpractice. Because women can’t do anything right. They can’t hold down a job.
I agree with everything you said above about it not being homophobic. But I still have a problem with it because of the way it portrays women in the workforce.
You know what’s misogynistic: placing more value on something because men have traditionally done it. Joan doesn’t have to join the military to become a doctor in the 21st century. She can actually go to med school instead. She can be valedictorian of her graduating class. She can complete her residency at on of the top hospitals in the country. She can also CHOOSE to leave said profession because a patient died. She can also CHOOSE to allow her license to expire. Nothing says she can NEVER go back to being a kick-ass surgeon, she just chose to do something else now. It doesn’t make her less intelligent and capable because she chose to leave her job. Obviously, you’ve never watched any of the episodes. The writers make a point to exhibit her medical knowledge and expertise at least once or twice an episode. She’s shown she knows her stuff.
But yeah, let’s just get caught up on the fact that she wasn’t in the Medical Corp in the military. That’s more valuable in your eyes, huh?
Newsflash, if you’re not in the army your profession is useless. You heard it here first.
Joan was a perfectly competent doctor who made a mistake and lost her confidence to perform her job. There’s a WHOLE EPISODE DEDICATED TO ESTABLISHING THAT JOAN NOT ONLY IS A COMPETENT DOCTOR BUT ALSO REMAINS MORE COMPETENT, APPARENTLY, THAN HER OLD COLLEAGUES and that the only reason why she doesn’t ‘get back in the saddle’ it’s because SHE DOESN’T WANT TO
LADIES MAKING DECISIONS ABOUT THEIR LIVES
but no, if your profession isn’t that one that is still today associated with masculinity U ARE WIMP
Elementary is a really good show you guys
It’s got a really nice energy and it’s a very unique take on Sherlock Holmes and it’s very intelligently-written
I like it a lot and I’ll be contributing at least one positive post to this tag per week because good grief it needs it
i thought this might be helpful!!!!!!!! episodes 1-10
Stop wanting to hate America so badly and you’ll find this:
Here’s how Fisher themselves described it:
NASA never asked Paul C. Fisher to produce a pen. When the astronauts began to fly, like the Russians, they used pencils, but the leads sometimes broke and became a hazard by floating in the [capsule’s] atmosphere where there was no gravity. They could float into an eye or nose or cause a short in an electrical device. In addition, both the lead and the wood of the pencil could burn rapidly in the pure oxygen atmosphere. Paul Fisher realized the astronauts needed a safer and more dependable writing instrument, so in July 1965 he developed the pressurized ball pen, with its ink enclosed in a sealed, pressurized ink cartridge.
Fisher sent the first samples to Dr. Robert Gilruth, Director of the Houston Space Center. The pens were all metal except for the ink, which had a flash point above 200°C. The sample Space Pens were thoroughly tested by NASA. They passed all the tests and have been used ever since on all manned space flights, American and Russian. All research and developement costs were paid by Paul Fisher. No development costs have ever been charged to the government.
Because of the fire in Apollo 1, in which three Astronauts died, NASA required a writing instrument that would not burn in a 100% oxygen atmosphere. It also had to work in the extreme conditions of outer space:
- In a vacuum.
- With no gravity.
- In hot temperatures of +150°C in sunlight and also in the cold shadows of space where the temperatures drop to -120°C
(NASA tested the pressurized Space Pens at -50°C, but because of the residential [sic] heat in the pen it also writes for many minutes in the cold shadows.)
Fisher spent over one million dollars in trying to perfect the ball point pen before he made his first successful pressurized pens in 1965. Samples were immediately sent to Dr. Robert Gilruth, Manager of the Houston Space Center, where they were thoroughly tested and approved for use in Space in September 1965. In December 1967 he sold 400 Fisher Space Pens to NASA for $2.95 each.
Lead pencils were used on all Mercury and Gemini space flights and all Russian space flights prior to 1968. Fisher Space Pens are more dependable than lead pencils and cannot create the hazard of a broken piece of lead floating through the gravity-less atmosphere.

i dont think barbie has anything to do with girls growing up to have eating disorders and self esteem issues like i had a couple bratz dolls as a child and i have never aspired to have a head that weighs twice as much as my body and lips that take up 50% of my face
