I kind of can’t get over how awesome Emily Blunt looks in this movie. I need to see this.
girls don’t want boys to like them girls want kristen stewart and natalie dormer to play lesbian lovers in an indie movie with a good soundtrack [x]
Girls don’t like boys. Girls like Natalie Dormer and jeans with actual pockets.
please imagine Natalie Dormer as Batman.
tiny dandelion-headed Natalie Dormer crouched in a corner with her blankie wondering why Mama and Papa won’t wake up
broody teenage Natalie Dormer at some expensive all-girls prep school in a neatly tailored uniform with the school’s crest on all her…
Tat as the Joker, though!!

"I’m not scared of desperately uncool cultural reactionaries like Jack Thompson or anti-witchcraft Harry Potter burners. I’m scared of the people who do hold cultural power, who have the loud voice, who are, in fact, the cool kids, but think they’re embattled underdogs. I’m scared of the people who think that because disco was “taking over music” they had the right to “fight back” bullying and attacking disco performers and fans.
I’m scared of people who look at someone like Zoe Quinn, an individual who makes free indie games, or Anita Sarkeesian, an individual who makes free YouTube videos, and honestly think that these women are a powerful “corrupt” force taking away the freedom of the vast mob of angry young male gamers and the billion-dollar industry that endlessly caters to them, and that working to shut them up and drive them out somehow constitutes justice. The dominant demographic voice in some given fandom or scene feeling attacked by an influx of new, different fans and rallying the troops against “oppression” in reaction is not at all unique. It happens everywhere, all the time.
But let’s be honest: It’s usually guys doing it. Our various “culture wars” tend to boil down to one specific culture war, the one about men wanting to feel like Real Men and lashing out at the women who won’t let them. Whenever men feel like masculinity is under attack, men get dangerous. Because that’s exactly what masculinity teaches you to do, what masculinity is about. Defending yourself with disproportionate force against any loss of power? That’s what masculinity is."
