She said ‘I really can’t stay’
And he said ‘baby, it’s cold outside let me lend you a jacket and give you a ride home’ because he wasn’t a fucking creep
Holy fucking shit Tumblr just has to find songs to be mad about for out of context and misinterpreted lyrics. The song was written by a MARRIED COUPLE. It’s a LOVE SONG that was never originally intended to be commercial.
Ya know. I’m all for calling out some SJ BS when it is “trying to find stuff to be offended by” but….that song ain’t that.
The song being written by a married couple doesn’t mean it’s fine.
The song has her mentioning going home repeatedly and him denying her, and at one point she even asks “What’s in this drink?”, which at the least suggests he spiked it with alcohol if not a “mickey” as they were known then.
The song is pretty damn “rape-y”.
Seriously “I DON’T LIKE THING SO I SMASH IT! SMASH STUFF FUN!” is fine if you’re like a Hulk fan only.
But if you’re a Superman or Wonder Woman or Captain America or such style fan and you do such stuff, you’re kind of missing the complete and entire point of the characters you’re claiming to love.
Just as much as the ‘fans’ who only like Superman because he’s strong, or Wonder Woman because she’s “hot”
I just want to say THANK YOU. Thank you for killing that Fauxmance Statue. Thank you for "The Break-Up". You have no idea how much joy you brought me with that single act.
Hhahahah it was a LOT of fun xD
I work at my LCS and that statue was already broken. In order to get the credit for the statue, DC needs a picture of the statue being smashed. So everyone at the store knows I hate the pairing, so they put my name on it to be smashed. :D
My husband is a professional photographer (and also super awesome) popped by to film and videotape it.
And thus we created statement art ;)
The sad thing are not those who incur in violence, but those who aplaude them for doing so.
"Well I worked at the book store and this copy of Harry Potter had a tear on a page so we had to destroy it, so since they know I’m a good Christian they put my name on it so I could burn it."
Also, the statue looked fine in those pictures, not at all unsellable, so isn’t that technically a false claim?
You know, illegal?
If you want to claim it’s “art” to make your version of a book burning cute, then go ahead, but you are still no different than anyone who burned Harry Potter because “witchcraft”.
1. Actually look at the first picture, maybe? You can clearly see that cloud on Wondy’s boot? Yeah, that’s because it broke off from the ‘cloud’ portion of the statue. Also, look at how far back they are leaning? That’s because we had to position the characters back in place.
2. Illegal — yeah, you keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
But please, tell me more about how I’m lying. Or just y’know. Show your ass out the door.
Here’s the thing, at the end of the day, you’re still an asshole celebrating destruction of something.
If someone got a copy of the Clark & Lois wedding special and shit on it I doubt you’d call it “art” but it’s every bit as much “art” as what you did.
OH. OK. GEE. It must really burn you that I got paid to smash that statue, too! All in a day’s work…
No, what bothers me is that someone who claims to be a fan of Superman and/or Wonder Woman can go “I DON’T LIKE THING SO I TAKE JOY IN SMASHING IT! I TAKE SO MUCH JOY IN SMASHING IT” and have other so-called “fans” of these characters who both symbolize and attempt to inspire the better half of human nature cheer it on.
You and all who liked that you did it miss the entire point of these characters.
Your choice of gif is applicable.
You’re not the hero of this story, you’re a evil, selfish, vile little villain who is just delusional enough to think they’re a good person and have some people who aren’t that bright agree.
There is something extra amazing about watching good actors and actresses working on a B movie with god awful dialogue.
I love when new followers are like
So with everyone whining about Gal Gadot being cast as Wonder Woman, I decided to do some research andI went back to look at the original comments on this article, which announced that Chris Evans had been cast by Marvel to play Steve Rogers in Captain America: The First Avenger.
Here’s a smattering of the fan reaction at the time (all emphasis mine):
"I think he’ll do good but I hope he bulks up.”
“Evans just has to add on some more muscle within the next 2-3 months(very possible) and he’s got the physical part of the role covered.”
"Ehhh, not the worst choice in the world but I think they could’ve done better as well. I’m glad the rumor mill on this will come to an end but I’m concerned given his film history that he’s not the guy for Cap.”
"I like Chris Evans, I think he’s a good actor, but I didn’t even consider him as the Cap. It might just be because it’ll take me a while to adjust, but I honestly don’t think he’ll fit.”
"I have a strange feeling people are going to start saying it should have been Channing Tatum in the end.”
"I’m still going to see First Avenger, and hopefully Chris can pull of Steve Rogers, but to me he will always be Johnny Storm.”
”AWFUL CASTING and pure lazyness for recycling a marvel actor. I will not see this or the other 9 movies they got him in because Hollywood hates comic book fans and do not respect the characters they love. Wake me up in 2025 when they reboot the franchise again because this one sucked. MARK VALLEY FOR CAPTAIN AMERICA DANGIT!!!!”
"I honestly think many of the other choices would be better, Worthington, the guy from Cloverfield, The Petrelli Bros (even though that wasn’t true), I’m not saying Chris evans is a bad actor, but to Play the Legendary Captain America? I say poor casting on that part, from his career so far and even his look, I just don’t think he’s a good option at all.”
tl;dr - Fans hate everyone.
I can still recall being in a Marvel panel in SDCC (and this was a bit after the Chris Evans as Cap news came out) and getting asked by different people what my thoughts were regarding Evans playing Cap (I was cosplaying as Captain America so everyone just went and asked me).
My answer was “I don’t know much about him besides F4 but who knows maybe he’s good” and boy did that set him off, he started ranting and raging and hating on Chris Evans and it went for like 15 minutes and it would have gone longer if I hadn’t moved to another seat.
Ugh seriously, I hope Gal nails it.
As a comic geek at the time, yeah EVERYONE hated that casting, even myself included.
For me it was because he always played the same snarky dudebro type and I was afraid they’d be making Cap into that.
It wasn’t until someone recommended to me to check out the movie “Sunshine” (in which Evans didn’t pay a dudebro) that I switched and believed he could actually do a decent job.
Then the movie came and he hit it out of the park, it’s still my favorite Marvel movie overall.
Of course unlike some folks I pretty much learned my lesson then and have tried to give every casting a fair chance since.
Heck I’ll even speak up for most actors/actresses who are mostly known for one character type because just because you’ve only seen them play X type doesn’t mean that’s all they can play.
