The only people offended by my kill your local rapist patch were white males. Lol.
Surely the only people who could possibly be legit offended by that patch are rapists?
And fuck their opinion because, well, they’re rapists.
IDK, I just don’t know how someone can look at something that says “Kill rapists” and think “how offensive! Won’t somebody stand up for the rapists in all this? They’re really treated unfairly in society. It’s time to give those guys a break.”
All right,” said Susan. “I’m not stupid. You’re saying humans need… fantasies to make life bearable.”
REALLY? AS IF IT WAS SOME KIND OF PINK PILL? NO. HUMANS NEED FANTASY TO BE HUMAN. TO BE THE PLACE WHERE THE FALLING ANGEL MEETS THE RISING APE.
"Tooth fairies? Hogfathers? Little—"
YES. AS PRACTICE. YOU HAVE TO START OUT LEARNING TO BELIEVE THE LITTLE LIES.
"So we can believe the big ones?"
YES. JUSTICE. MERCY. DUTY. THAT SORT OF THING.
"They’re not the same at all!"
YOU THINK SO? THEN TAKE THE UNIVERSE AND GRIND IT DOWN TO THE FINEST POWDER AND SIEVE IT THROUGH THE FINEST SIEVE AND THEN SHOW ME ONE ATOM OF JUSTICE, ONE MOLECULE OF MERCY. AND YET—Death waved a hand. AND YET YOU ACT AS IF THERE IS SOME IDEAL ORDER IN THE WORLD, AS IF THERE IS SOME…SOME RIGHTNESS IN THE UNIVERSE BY WHICH IT MAY BE JUDGED.
"Yes, but people have got to believe that, or what’s the point—"

I am really happy Captain America: The Winter Soldier is out in the USA now, because we’ve had it here for a week now and you all can finally get to see just how awesome Black Widow is literally the entire time she is onscreen.
Seriously if you are a fan of Natasha following the events of Avengers (or if you just, you know, like strong, capable, in-control female characters who are smart and sassy and badass and aren’t reduced by incompetent writing or bad directing to eye-candy, one-dimensional love interests or plot devices), you are really going to enjoy this film,
