Hey, I'm tall

Hello, I'm an art school student. I love Doctor Who and Star Trek and comic books. I'm really tall and I get neck pains from having to talk down to people. It has given me an undeserved superiority complex.

To get the best #captainmarvel hair when your hair is as long as mine and don’t want 80,000 pins in your hair and hate tons of products, try braids. I braid my hair down each side so the braid track hugs the “Mohawk” and it gives me a ‘hawk that will last all day(s) without a single pin. It looks cool too. :) #carolcorps #caroldanvers @kellysued

The Deir Yassin Massacre - 9 April, 1948
Or, the other shoe that fell; a symbol of the Palestinian Nakba, which sparked over 750,000 Palestinians to flee their homes crying “Deir Yassin!”
This anniversary does not only mark the gruesome massacre carried out by three terrorist gangs against unarmed Palestinian civilians, but it also marks the beginning of the policy of “ethnic cleansing” and depopulation against  Palestinian villages.
The 13 April, 1948 New York Times coverage reported Zionist forces went “house-to-house” killing 254 Palestinians, including 25 pregnant women who were bayoneted and 52 children who were maimed in front of their mothers before being beheaded and the mothers slain.
Let’s not forget, however, that Dier Yassin not only had a “good reputation”, but it also stood neutral during the 1947-1948 War in addition to the fact that it had signed a non-aggression treaty with the Zionists. Therefore;

“Deir Yasin must always remain a warning and a reminder to every Palestinian, to every Arab as the village that signed a “peace agreement” with the Zionists and ended up being ethnically cleansed, wiped off the map and its residents either savagely massacred or made refugees.”

Anonymous asked: Um. Clint makes Steve and Bucky read Harry Potter. The Avengers all have very, very strong opinions about which house they get sorted into. Bucky thinks he's a Slytherin, but Steve says he's a Hufflepuff through and through.

"This isn’t a legitimate classification system," said Steve angrily, throwing the book onto the couch next to Clint. "This is bullshit. They’re children, for cripe’s sake.”

Clint’s eyebrows rose to comical levels.

"You can’t just isolate different children or—or— or try to predetermine their characters at age eleven," Steve said, thoroughly angry. "And you certainly can’t condemn an entire fourth of your school’s population to a villainy house, what the hell is that?”

He started to pace.

"As if people never change! As if there’s no moral or ethical growth after age eleven!

Bucky reached over Clint and picked up the book. Clint gave him a look and he shrugged.

"Hell, if it makes Steve this angry, I gotta check it out," he explained.

"This isn’t a basis for education!" Bucky shouted. "Where are the art classes, huh? Kids this age should have access to art classes."

"Exactly!" shouted Steve. "Maybe a little less institutionalized racism and a little more arts education, am I right?"

Clint buried his head in his hands.

While Johansson’s first Marvel appearance in Iron Man 2 may have relied somewhat upon sex appeal, this was quickly nixed in favor of characterizing her as the most cerebral Avenger. Her most important scenes in The Avengers relied upon her intelligence and skills as a spy, to the extent that she even managed to outwit Loki, the God of Lies. At the end of the movie, she’s the one who closes the portal that let all the aliens into New York. Then in Winter Soldier she’s given second billing to Captain America, a meaty role that showcases a wide-ranging skillset that stretches far beyond just “kicking ass.” At no point during any of these movies does she seduce anyone, by the way.

Sadly, there’s very little sign of this character in the most easily accessible reviews of both The Avengers and Winter Soldier. Judging by the Guardian, WSJ, or New Yorker, Black Widow is more like a blow-up doll with a black belt. By their logic, if she’s wearing a tight outfit, then she must be a sexy ass-kicker, meaning that she must be the token female character, and therefore is little more than eye candy.

With that thought process in mind, it must make perfect sense to relegate Black Widow to a single sniggering comment about her catsuit, because obviously Scarlett Johansson is just there for decoration. And if you’ve read in the New York Times that Black Widow is a token female character, then chances are you’ll have internalized that opinion before you even buy a ticket. The feedback loop of misogynist preconceptions continues on, and in the end, we all lose out.
