I want to be adventuring.
if loki gets a solo movie before there’s a female lead movie in the mcu I will unhinge my jaw like a snake and literally eat kevin feige alive
I agree with wanting female lead Marvel movies, especially a Black Widow one
I agree with wanting a genderfluid Loki movie
But I also really want to see the OP unhinge their jaw and eat a dude, so I’m torn.
I have this bad habit of expecting shows to be building towards something more clever or socially conscious than they actually are. It means I sometimes watch bad shows longer than I should, waiting for the twist that never comes.
It’s also why I get frustrated and just stop watching shows.
This is why you cant trust women, even when theyre mouth is closed theyre still lying to you
you do realize that this is really hurtful right?
i did not do this to show how i am ‘lying’ to men or anyone, it’s not about how you, as a man, should feel about it - it’s about myself.
to me your statement sounds as if the left side of this picture is something awful or horrible. and no, it’s not. it is my face - with and without makeup. and whether i chose to wear it or not is MY AND JUST MY decision. and when i do, i do it for myself - so that i feel good about myself - not for you.
i think what pisses me the MOST about that comment, is that the beauty standard was literally created by men, and is perpetuated by the patriarchal society that we live in because it’s a fantasy, because all women were made to be part of this fantasy. it’s not our fault that the attractiveness we display is judged solely on how well we wear makeup, because no one looks like that. even with ‘natural’ makeup, nO ONE LOOKS LIKE THAT. men and women are attracted to faces that do not exist. how fucked up is that?
a guy once said in passing that it was necessary for his girlfriend to wear makeup, and it just blows my mind that he wouldn’t be attracted to a natural women’s face. despite how they look without makeup, because it’s not as “perfect,” as enhanced, the way women “should look,” as it is with makeup. we see men as attractive without makeup, but when we look at women without makeup? it’s shameful, it’s ugly, she hasn’t ‘put her face on.’ we see ‘attractive’ men as attractive despite them having the same flaws as women: under eye circles, thick eyebrows, uneven skin coloring, et cetera. its the fact that we are literally told to believe that our bodies, unlike those of attractive men, are not good enough. we’re told no woman will ever be good enough.
i think it scares men how closely women look like them. not because men think other men are ugly, but because when you look like someone, you identify more with them. it kills the fantasy. women become human, real, people who have body oder and fart. they’re “ugly” without makeup because they’re no longer these freakish dolls that grow zero body hair and whose cheekbones are always defined.
cosmetics for women is a HUGE industry. women’s beauty is a commodity. it’s a thing that can be bought and sold. chris hemsworth wakes up every morning and looks like sun shines out of his ass. while the op in the picture above has to spend a ridiculous amount of money and time literally redefining her face so that she and everyone else will think of her as attractive.
this comment-er calls the op a liar when him and people like him created and perpetuate the reason for its existence. he’s metaphorically punching himself in the face.
i was going to respond but i think the above comment is just spot on and i cant add much to it
i completely loathe the fact that women are often branded deceitful and liars because they have chosen to wear makeup. oh my fuck its just ugh
Flat out fucking misogyny.
Makes me wanna break teeth.
because you’re dashboard needs a merman.
The amazing Mertailor! He MAKES these tails!
No but seriously
how flipping beautiful
Eric Ducharme/the Mertailor’s tails are.
someone get me one… blue always blue
I CANNOT DEAL WITH HOW PRETTY THESE ARE
I need a better weather app on my phone. The one I have doesn’t consider windchill. (and it seems to often be off by a few degrees)
And let me tell you, even having this sore throat, I would walk to a coffee shop if it were -28C like the app says.
However, considering Environment Canada says it feels like -40C and there’s a windchill warning in effect, I don’t think I’ll be doing that.
Geez my apartment is cold this morning.

|9. Least favourite book you read this year (so far)?|
|I dunno, probably a textbook.|
|10. Favorite book you’ve read this year?|
|Right at this moment I would say The Republic of Thieves by Scott Lynch, but I also just finished it, so....|

|25. Have you ever read a self-help book?|
|I'm trying to decide if the book on networking I had to read for a class last year counts as a self help book. Otherwise, no. But I have had people read me enough snippets of them to know that I never want to read them.|

|Pride & Prejudice|
|43. What distracts you easily when you’re reading?|

You know when you need to sneeze
And you reach for a kleenex
But you don’t quite make it and you sneeze all over everything?
…I hate that.
