More fun with photoshop. This time I wanted to see how Anthony Mackie’s Falcon from the Winter Soldier movie would look as Captain America. Of course I know that Falcon is only Captain America in the comics, so calm your tits MCU fanboys. I just wanted to see how awesome Anthony Mackie looks in the red white and blue. It took me an entire day to do this.
Edit: I just added a shield, since that’s obviously the most important thing about being Cap.
Remember when Disney had a cute, disabled, poc mermaid?
When i was younger, one of my best friends was a deaf guyanese girl, and her fave princess was Ariel, mainly bc she related to her living without a voice (and her love of swimming)
When this episode aired, she cried and squawked and made sounds that were almost understandable… She saw herself as a mermaid, on tv, with her favourite character of all time
Representation matters, always, no matter what

I made a dress.

Mia vs. Marvel
Remember that intimate conversation you had with your son? The one where you said, “I love you and I need you to know that no matter how a woman dresses or acts, it is not an invitation to cat call, taunt, harass or assault her”?
Or when you told your son, “A woman’s virginity isn’t a prize and sleeping with a woman doesn’t earn you a point”?
How about the heart-to-heart where you lovingly conferred the legal knowledge that “a woman doesn’t have to be fighting you and you don’t have to be pinning her down for it to be RAPE. Intoxication means she can’t legally consent, NOT that she’s an easy score.”
Or maybe you recall sharing my personal favorite, “Your sexual experiences don’t dictate your worth just like a woman’s sexual experiences don’t dictate hers.”
Last but not least, do you remember calling your son out when you discovered he was using the word “slut” liberally? Or when you overheard him talking about some girl from school as if she were more of a conquest than a person?
I want you to consider these conversations and then ask yourself why you don’t remember them. The likely reason is because you didn’t have them. In fact, most parents haven’t had them.
By contrast, here are some conversations you might have a better recollection of. I’ll give you a telling hint: they probably weren’t with your son.
"Be careful with the way you act and the way you dress — it’s easy to get a bad reputation."
"That’s just the way boys are — you can’t give them any excuse to behave that way towards you."
"You need to be safe! When you dress that way, some people read it as an invitation."
"Never go out alone, never walk alone at night, never drink from an open beverage."
These are conversations often had by loving parents like you. They come from a place of care, they come from a place of concern but most notably they come from a place of upside-down, cultural indoctrination that is hurting, stifling and punishing young women.
The cultural indoctrination that I’m speaking of goes something like this: It is a young woman’s responsibility to safeguard herself from rape, assault, harassment, stalking and abuse because boys will be boys and some of them just can’t help themselves.
Things I Love About This Video:
- Patrick not being able to decide how he wants to sing “goddam arms race”, so he sings it different every time
- JOE’S FUCKING “WOO OO OO OO OOO’S” ARE PERFECT AND ADORABLE
- Pete looking all moody and the sultry “all the boys..etc” line
- Andy’s cute little tapping back there like oh my god do you know how cute you are I love how he can go from “ABSHIJBLSKVKABOOMBOOMPOWSKJDG” TO “taptaptippitytap" he’s so awesome ugh
and then it’s all put together in this clusterfuck of perfection.
