Can we talk about how weird it is that people seem to complain more about Daisy than about Tom in TGG?
Like, I don’t understand how there are people who find Daisy more unlikable than TOM.
Because Daisy, yes, is vapid and vain, because she has been taught that being vapid and vain are the best way to survive. She has become the beautiful fool she hopes her daughter will…
Right? Like daisy is even willing to leave Tom for him. But that isn’t good enough for Gatsby. He demands that daisy proclaim that she never loved tom or any part of her life with him (including her daughter we assume) and daisy cant just erase the last decade of her life like Gatsby wants.
Sometimes I am not super bright. It’s only just hitting me that from the very beginning of Sailor Moon, Usagi calls herself a crybaby, and frames it like it’s a negative thing, even in her own eyes. Other characters support that idea. It’s not something to be proud of or aspire to, it’s something to gain control over, to grow out of.
Yet from Usagi’s tears comes the most powerful object in the universe.
#that seems so obvious #i can’t believe it took me this long to make that connection #sailor moon is all about taking things that are typically considered ‘feminine’ and ‘weak’ and making them strengths #how did i miss the clearest possible example of this
Anyone who believes 300 years of oppression can be undone in a 50 year span does not have a basic comprehension of how this subjugation can become internalized and normalized, thus continuing to be a serious social issue
This can never be reblogged too many times.
Can we take a moment to talk about how ELLEN FUCKING DEGENERES, probably the most well-known out gay comedian of all fucking time, cracked a transmisogynistic joke and misgendered someone ON THE FUCKING OSCARS?
This is not cool. This is not right. This is the face of bullying and bigotry. Liza looked amazingly upset by this and (AFAIK) she’s not even trans.
Seriously, WHAT THE FUCK, Ellen?!
Seriously, Ellen, what the fuck.
I love her, but loving someone doesn’t mean ignoring their bullshit, nor does it mean ignoring the social pressure that they (especially lesbian comedians) face to maintain cis/white/male supremacy in order to be accepted by mainstream society. Ellen did a great job hosting the Oscars, but this joke was totally fucked up and not okay at all.
