Lemme have it :)
Alexandra. 19. UCF student. Fandom blogger. Evil Regal. Gleek. Writer. Vidder. Occasional simmer. Cisgender heterosexual. Regina Mills is my favorite thing in the world, Rachel Berry and Kurt Hummel are close seconds. I am always happy to talk about my fandoms but be warned, I tend to glom onto the character I can relate to the most and defend 90-100% of everything they do. I also loathe spoilers with a passion. My main fandoms right now are OUAT, Glee (seasons 1-3), and Supernatural. I am also somewhat passionate about both animal rights and human rights and will sometimes reblog or post links to those types of things. A lot of people think I'm weird because I have bizarre anger issues and am extremely socially awkward but I'm actually really nice. So you should send me asks and things. My fanfiction URL is EvilRegalGleek and my YouTube channels are xxAllieGleekxx, MultishipperGleek, and TheMostPowerful Magic. swissgleek91 is the Kurt to my Rachel and if you like Fuinn, Klaine, or the last three seasons of OTH go follow her.
-not all men are trying to oppress women. -not all feminists are actually fair.
-men aren’t the only people who commit rape -abuse happens to boys too -boys can also struggle with self harm, depression and eating disorders
This post would be a lot more relevant if we could all acknowledge that…
all men are adding to the sum total of systematic gender bias every time they get a job based on their gender, get a higher salary based on their gender, are judged less as a person or as a parent because of their gender, or are generally assumed to be more competent or smart based on their gender
all white people are contributing to the sum total of racial oppression every time they get a job based on their race, are judged less as a person or a parent than they would be if they were a different race, or are generally assumed to be more competent or smart based on their race
pretty much every heterosexual person does things that are heterosexist whether they realize it or not
sure not all feminists are actually fair but who the fuck are you to decide what “fair” is when obviously you’re not very familiar with the issues involved in our cause if you feel the need to go straight to “But we’re not all like that!” Let’s say you and I standing next to each other talking, and I reach into my bag and pull out a stick. You immediately cover your face with your arms and start screaming. I wasn’t about to hit you with the stick. I didn’t even move towards you with the stick. I only pulled the stick out of my bag to tell you where I got it from in case you wanted to know more about the stick or wanted to get one yourself. But I’m never going to get to tell you that, because you feel so certain that I’m going to hit you or stab you with it that after a few seconds you punch me in the stomach and feel good about having “defended yourself” when really I was only trying to help you understand something, and now you have become the attacker for no real reason. Maybe that was a stupid analogy, but bottom line, feminism is the stick. And I promise you there are a lot more fair feminists out there than there are men who are willing to examine feminist issues enough to be even remotely fair about them.
I love Swanfire (as well as SwanQueen) and I find it kind of cute that Snow ships it.
But Snow has NEVER been afraid to let herself be happy. In fact, she’s been a lot more “afraid” to let the people she allegedly loves be happy at times. And Snow isn’t half the woman Emma is and never will be.
Neither Snow or Charming has ANY business telling Emma what to do with her life or who to date, spend time with, whatever after they almost abandoned her again. AGAIN. Arguments can be made that the first time around they were protecting her when they chose to let her spend twenty-eight years alone in an unknown realm. But the fact that Snow and Charming were both going to let her leave Neverland without them? When Snow’s ONLY reason for staying was that she was putting her husband before her daughter, and Snow and Charming didn’t even ASK either of the two (three if you count Tinkerbell) members of their party who know how to use magic if there was a way to keep Charming alive in Storybrooke. Emma was the one who asked, because deep down she will always need her parents, even if they can’t really be her parents because they’re the same age (as she’s said), and even if deep down, she will always question how much they really love her if they were willing to stay in Neverland without her.
It’s not Henry. But Regina’s reactions are genuine… and i just…FEELS
But I hate how she just automatically expected to be cut out of his life again and to not be thanked or acknowledged for anything she did she’s just so used to it and she just accepted it in the first gif she just walks right past him IT HURTS SO MUCH WHY?
It kinda irked me that Emma was all “LETS SAY GOOD NIGHT TO REGINA” like… what? She said it like she full expected to just take Henry and not be challenged as well. Like wtf Emma…you’re being a bitch.
It’s just the show pushing it’s Pro-Biology / Anti Adoption message. Of course Emma expected Henry to go with her. I mean, it’s not like Henry is Regina’s son or anything, right?
OH WAIT - HE IS.
Of course he should be with Regina - She’s his mother! Emma should be the one asking permission.
This shows message on family is disgraceful. They should be ashamed.
All of that ^^^^^
I agree with all that but I also think the reason Emma knew/suspected something was weird about Henry had to do more with his mannerisms and the fact that he didn’t recognize the book than anything. We all know it wouldn’t have been completely out of left field for Henry to want to spend a night at Regina’s house, but even the way he asked her didn’t sound very…Henry.
Can we just stop and talk about this for a minute?
Thresh doesn’t make an alliance. Thresh doesn’t waste time liking her. Thresh knows that either he must kill her or she must kill him for one of them to win.
But this is the only way he can repay her for protecting Rue when he couldn’t. It’s the only way he can repay her for honoring Rue when he couldn’t. He honors her by sparing her friend, the girl who would have died for her.
The revolution really doesn’t start with Katniss.
It starts with Rue.
SOMEBODY FINALLY SAID IT
Not to mention that in the end, doing this costs him absolutely nothing because whatever killed him (not sure if it was Cato or the mutts) would have killed him even if Katniss had been dead.
(but that line makes it even sadder because at least “he” might mean Daniel who would have been with her if he could, “she” I’m assuming means Emma who IS LITERALLY RIGHT THERE NOT NOTICING HOW HURT AND SAD SHE IS)
If you ever feel bad about being uninformed about the world in some way, remember that when my mom was a kid she thought that all the adults around her were morons for getting so upset about Watergate because obviously it was just a dam that broke.
