where did this website’s sudden obsession with skeletons come from
From inside ourselves.
fcugn no first of alll;, you do not come into my house with your bullshit skeleton puns do u wanna fucking fite I could take like 5 shitty skeltons don’t test me
imagine steve rogers finding out people were saying that girls and women shouldn’t wear captain america merchandise and uploading a youtube video of him that consists of like seven minutes of him reading the stupid comments out loud in silly voices and laughing
The thing that I hate about thoughts like this, is he probably wouldn’t. He’s from the 40’s, so his view on women would be waaay different. Like, he wouldn’t work with Black Widow, he’d tell her to stay in the back or go make a sandwich or something like that….
Haha! Ha. Wow. Ok, nope! No. I have no idea why you’d think that since every possible piece of canon, from pretty much any universe where he’s not evil or a silly parody, contradicts you.
In the comics and in the movies during the 40’s he worked with an integrated team called the Howling Commandos. In some universes it was racially integrated, in some universes there were mutants in his team also. When women would show up as spies, nurses, secretaries, or secret agents, he’d be polite to them, plus there’s how in his actual recent origin movie he adored Peggy Carter and thought she was extremely capable. In all the movies and comics and in cartoons he’s depicted as extremely respectful to women and affirmative of their abilities to help fight in the war and as superheroes.
In the very first 1960’s comic issue of the Avengers, he never tells Janet Van Dyne, the Wasp, to get back to the kitchen. I don’t think he even quibbles over her inclusion in the team—she’s actually who names them.
Since the 1940’s, in comics written since the 1940’s, he’s pretty consistently and universally written as a guy who treats women and racial minorities and aliens with the respect due their profession and skill. He’s teamed up with X-men and mutants like Storm and the Scarlet Witch and Spiderwoman, agents and military women like Maria Hill and Sharon Carter and the Black Widow and the Wasp, and even businesswomen like Pepper Pots.
In conclusion: Steve Rogers is a super respectful badass and I love him and he doesn’t have any truck with sexism, the end.
Now imagine Steve reading tumblr user circe-thorn’s comment above in a mocking voice on youtube, though.
He’s mad and he’s disappointed.
Anonymous asked: Are you aware of the game "remember me"? In the game the main character can remix memory's (basically adding or removing memory's.) could a rouge of mind do that? If not which tile or tiles could?
I don’t know the game :c
maybe - but they wouldn’t just be able to create new memories, they would be taking a memory from one person and giving it to another.
if you wanted a title that could mess with existing memories you’d want a witch or prince of mind.
On being British
I was teaching at a Summer School this summer and one of my students told me he did not feel British, because he didn’t look British. He was black. That broke my heart a little. So I started questioning the kids on British history, and oh they fit in it and all the kids from ethnic minorities said they felt excluded from it. They felt their history only began with the end of the empire.
They were wrong.
I once thought the same thing.
I was also wrong.
It was thanks to medievalpoc that my eyes were opened. And my teaching, my research, my being, have changed so much because of that.
I will never forget the expression on their faces as I told my students a different history than what they were told in schools. I reinforced that they are British, they have always been British and they are part of British history.
And then I told them to start questioning what they are being told in schools, and to get on Tumblr and follow medievalpoc .
I hope they did.
I can’t even control my emotions right now. Honestly I am so humbled by this I am at a loss for words. Thank you.
