"I need feminism because I was kicked out of a coding class because I ‘distracted’ the boys."
Friendly reminder that yesterday when my mom took me to Walmart she left me alone in the toilet paper section and this guy started hitting on me and I said “Sorry, I’m a lesbian.” and he was like “Oh my god I’m so sorry I thought you were a boy.”
Soda just spewed out my nose
THAT WAS A PLOT TWIST
I may always reblog every gifset/imageset I see of this scene, if only to point out (over and over and over again) that Black Widow’s “very specific skillset” is not, actually, ass-kicking (as amazing as she is at that), because all the Avengers can kick ass to a pretty high degree. The Black Widow’s superpower (as it were) is emotional manipulation.
She is not interrogating this man not while tied to a chair. She is tied to a chair because that is exactly where she wants to be, because apparent vulnerability on her part is part of her interrogation. She uses the exact same trick on Loki later, when she leads him into gloating over having successfully pushed her buttons (and I have a theory that he did actually push her buttons, that she was genuinely distressed by the things he said to her because Loki is old enough and smart enough to know when someone is lying to him) and turns his gloating around on him, uses it to dig into the cracks of him, because that is what she does, and she can do it even when her target is expecting it. (Really, Loki knows that’s why she’s there. He was expecting to be physically tortured first, and for her to come be sympathetic later, if you recall, but Loki and Widow both know that wouldn’t work.)
And this is why she’s so unsettled by the Hulk. The Black Widow relies on emotional manipulation — and the Hulk, to the best of her knowledge, only has varying shades of a single emotion: anger. She doesn’t know how to manipulate a creature if it doesn’t have all the hooks to emotions like pride and lust and guilt and greed that she’s used to using.
This is a REALLY good character analysis of Natasha.
That’s because Zuko’s the only one he expects good things out of
WAKE UP WORLD #YesAllWomen
That steak analogy is my favorite,
We need feminism because women are catcalled and publicly harrassed every minute. It doesn’t end there. Just last week, my best friend, a hard-working woman, watched a totally underqualified male get promoted ABOVE her at her job. Upon confronting her boss about this, he replied, “I would have promoted you, but I just don’t know how I feel about a woman being at such a high position.”
She has since quit her job.
All in all, WE NEED FEMINISM. Anti-feminists say they want a “gender-equal” environment. But they don’t realize that the society we live in now is NO WHERE CLOSE TO gender-equal. Feminists are working to change that and make our society gender-equal. What are we doing wrong? Why are so many anti-feminists against us?
I have asked this myself in the past and never gotten an answer.
Maybe today will be the day we are both finally enlightened.

Maybe someone made a typo and it just got out of hand?
I kinda feel like panic!at the disco started the whole exclamation point thing and then it caught on around the internet, but maybe they got it from somewhere else, IDK.
The world may never know…
Maybe it’s something mathematical?
I’ve been in fandom since *about* when Panic! formed and the adjective!character thing was already going strong, pretty sure it predates them.
It’s a way of referring to particular variations of (usually) a character — dark!Will, junkie!Sherlock, et cetera. I have suspected for a while that it originated from some archive system that didn’t accommodate spaces in its tags, so to make common interpretations/versions of the characters searchable, people started jamming the words together with an infix.
(Lately I’ve seen people use the ! notation when the suffix isn’t the full name, but is actually the second part of a common fandom portmanteau. This bothers me a lot but it happens, so it’s worth being aware of.)
"Bang paths" (! is called a "bang"when not used for emphasis) were the first addressing scheme for email, before modern automatic routing was set up. If you wanted to write a mail to the Steve here in Engineering, you just wrote "Steve" in the to: field and the computer sent it to the local account named Steve. But if it was Steve over in the physics department you wrote it to phys!Steve; the computer sent it to the "phys" computer, which sent it in turn to the Steve account. To get Steve in the Art department over at NYU, you wrote NYU!art!Steve- your computer sends it to the NYU gateway computer sends it to the "art" computer sends it to the Steve account. Etc. ("Bang"s were just chosen because they were on the keyboard, not too visually noisy, and not used for a huge lot already).
It became pretty standard jargon, as I understand, to disambiguate when writing to other humans. First phys!Steve vs the Steve right next to you, just like you were taking to the machine, then getting looser (as jargon does) to reference, say, bearded!Steve vs bald!Steve.
So I’m guessing alternate character version tags probably came from that.
I FELL ASLEEP WHEN I WATCHING THE AVENGERS SO I THOUGHT THIS WAS AN ACTUAL LINE IN THE MOVIE THAT I MIGHTVE MISSED SO I TOLD MY SISTER “HEY THERES ONE PART IN THE AVENGERS WHERE *SAYS WHAT THE GIFS SAY*” AND SHES LIKE “OH MY GOD NO WAY” ADN SHE LOOKKED IT UP AND STARTED LAUGHING AND SHES LIKE “ANDY YOU FUCKING CUNT ITS FROM BROTHER BEAR”
