I can’t just turn this on. I’m not like you guys. I don’t have claws, or glowing eyes or super senses. I just have voices in my head.
my tiny worrisome asian mother strikes again (part 1)
Sarah? Shut your yap for a second?
please imagine Natalie Dormer as Batman.
tiny dandelion-headed Natalie Dormer crouched in a corner with her blankie wondering why Mama and Papa won’t wake up
broody teenage Natalie Dormer at some expensive all-girls prep school in a neatly tailored uniform with the school’s crest on all her jacket buttons, wearing her skirt the regulation two inches above the knees, going for long sprints through the woods with her hair flying in her face, getting back up every time she trips, and then (consensually, because she’s the best kisser) pushing a different girl up against the brick wall of one of the outbuildings and putting her mouth eagerly against theirs every day
Natalie Dormer doing chin-ups in a crop top, wearing black fingerless gloves, her angular face aglow with sweat
Natalie Dormer kneeling before a floor-to-ceiling mirror turning the mask over and over in her manicured fingers, whispering “I am the night” as if saying it will make it true
Natalie Dormer standing aloof on some rooftop mid-stakeout… but then Catwoman approaches, all witty quips and sinuous curves, and she blushes beneath her mask because OH GOD MY ENEMY IS HOT. (catwoman is Lucy Liu)
Natalie Dormer having this weird sexually charged enemyship with the Joker, who is played by Tatiana Maslany
The Joker puts her face close to Natalie’s and says something nihilistic and Bat-Natalie just growls back and they end up wrestling and grappling and maybe ANGRY CLASH OF MOUTHS
Natalie Dormer teaming up with Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn
Natalie Dormer as sparkling billionairess by day, brutal vigilante by night
Natalie Dormer…. as BATMAN.
(also Sophie Turner is Robin, obviously)
- Do not forget Michael Brown
- Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
- Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
- Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
- Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $200,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
- Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
- Do not forget Ferguson
She wears short skirts I wear t-shirts and we’re both getting sent home from school because its distracting to boys apparently
When I say something that should not be controversial
Why aren’t 50% of coal miners women? Why not 50% of janitors or pest control workers? Don’t forget front line military!
Likewise, why aren’t men 50% of college enrollment and 50% of teachers?
We should eliminate the stupid “personal choice” thing because forcing people into certain professions is way more fun.
THIS IS NOT ABOUT FORCING PEOPLE INTO PROFESSIONS
THIS IS ABOUT WOMEN GOING INTO SCIENCE BEING DISCOURAGED
THIS IS ABOUT WOMEN BEING DISCRIMINATED AGAINST
FIRST, WHAT GBT SAID.^
FUNNY YOU SHOULD MENTION WOMEN COAL MINERS. BECAUSE I STUDY THEM. AND GUESS WHAT?
Women had to fight court cases to be allowed into coal mines as workers. Once a few women paved the way, thousands of women followed in short suit because on average, their incomes increased 500% over working as domestic workers, doing textile piecework and waitressing. Some saw their income jump 1000%.
Dig a little deeper, and you’ll find women have been mining coal for centuries. They were pushed out in the Victorian period because the mansplainers of the day could tolerate women wielding such a phallic object as a shovel underground with male workers present. And wearing pants! Still, women disguised themselves as men to work in the mines.
Oh, and World War II. Where did all the coal come from then? Oh, that’s right. Women. Women who were expected to stand aside and let the men take their jobs when the war was over and were denied benefits when they later developed black lung.
Also, can we just talk about how absurd it is to say that women don’t make up 50% of ‘janitors’?
Gee, I wonder if that’s because when a woman is hired to be the primary cleaner and caretaker of a property, it gets called ‘housekeeping’ or ‘maidservice’ and pays less than the EXACT SAME JOB, which if done by a man is given the title ‘janitor’?
Why aren’t men 50% of college enrollment? Because men aren’t 50% of college applications. No one’s exactly sure why, but the prevailing guess? Because it’s easier for men to get a professional job without a degree. Which means it’s easier for men to earn a living wage without going into debt. Which increases the already existent wealth gap, already exacerbated by the income gap.
(And if you’ll allow me to get all snarkily gender essentialist for a moment, maybe you boys just can’t cut it in higher ed. Even those of you getting into colleges are dropping out at rates WAY higher than women. They were probably just there looking for a wife to provide for them, though, am I right? Ah, get back in the toolshed, don’t worry your silly little heads about it.)
Oh my god I want to fucking marry this entire post.
Dear. GOD. This is fantastic <3
