Cap: Shouldn’t be a problem.

What I really love is that the movie doesn’t even bother to show them getting the wings. Like, pfft, whatever, infiltrating high securty places to steal experimental government technology, what is it Tuesday already? Nobody needs to see that, we have more important things to do.

Glad I didn’t see her in person. Her little necklace bothers me sooo much but this whole photo is a travesty.

See…this is the shit I was talking about regarding white people co-opting Black culture and other cultures for fun like a costume at a Black event, this that bullshit.

APPROPRIATE ALL THE CULTURES!!!!
God this is so gross. I bet her house smell like wet dog and stale pee.

Fans are taking ‘Where’s Gamora?’ into their own hands

As many frustrated fans have pointed out online, much of the official Guardians of the Galaxy merchandise leaves out Gamora, one of the movie’s five titular Guardians, played by Zoe Saldana. Though Gamora has an equal amount of screen time as her male colleagues, and Saldana is second-billed after Chris Pratt, Gamora is mysteriously absent in some egregious ways.

Unfortunately, this is nothing new

This missing-Gamora bullshit makes me SO. MAD. “It’s a boy’s shirt so it can’t have a girl on it” ah yes, boys cannot wear something with a ladybody on it, that would turn them gay or something.

Hey, I wonder what the girls’ shirt for Guardians of the Galaxy looks like? OH WAIT HAHA THERE ISN’T ONE. In fact, a number of their licenses — Lego, Captain America, Star Wars, Ninjago, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Transformers, X-Men — only appear on boys’ clothing.

I do not envy the challenge for parents who want their kids to have gender-neutral clothing.

Or who have gender nonconforming kids, or, you know, daughters with interests.

If you’re worried about being fetishized and shit over having boobs as a transgendered girl then why are you even trying to change your gender in the first place? This is just obvious male privilege, god damn tr**nies.

yet another reason accusations of trans women’s continued male privilege has beyond jumped the shark and become meaningless

Assuming the person’s a cis woman, you could turn this argument around:
If you mind being the target of sexism so much why not just transition?

When God Was A Woman by Merlin Stone


"What… might we expect in a society that for centuries has taught young children, both female and male, that a MALE deity created the universe and all that is in it, produced MAN in his own divine image- and then, as an afterthought, created woman, to obediently help man in his endeavors?"

When God Was a Woman sets out to explore this question, as well as to explore what Goddess-worshiping societies looked like. Using archaeological evidence, Stone argues that when much of humanity practiced the religion of the Goddess, the status of women was much higher than in male-deity worshiping Judeo-Christian societies. Accordingly, the rise of the Judeo-Christian religion, she argues, coincided with the decline of the the status of women in society. …The study of comparative religion is beneficial in that it allows us to observe how religious beliefs are “coincidentally” related to who holds power in a society. …
Yet, even though her book is an exploration of the role of women in Goddess-worshiping as compared to God-worshiping societies, I think it would be erroneous to assume that Stone is suggesting that we revert back to a Goddess-worshiping religion. In fact, Stone ends her book by suggesting that not until humans are able to “regard the world and its riches as a place that belongs to every living being on it, can we begin to say we have become a truly civilized species” (241).
