[yelling] IN DECEMBER DRINKING HORCHAATAAAAdjskfafdkla
As with any story, what makes or break it is the writing. To say Diana is an uninteresting character while not bringing up the same so-called concern about Hal Jordon when his film was being pitched is just a bit ludicrous. Marvel is releasing Guardians of the Galaxy in the summer of 2014, a movie which stars a raccoon named Rocket Raccoon and a talking tree named Groot. Yet Wonder Woman with all her rich history and compelling books like League of One, The Hiketeia, and Eyes of the Gorgon just doesn’t have enough backstory to make her an interesting character on film?
It sounds more like studios find her stuffy and don’t want to touch the unavoidable feminist aspects of her character. Studios seem to picture a Wonder Woman movie as a two hour snore-fest of Diana shaking her finger at little boys like some 50s grandma, while going off on bra-burning rants about how awful men are.
Diana is a multifaceted character with pythons and layers just like Superman and Batman, though you’d sometimes be hard pressed to find such things in their newer, grittier incarnations. Wonder Woman is a bridge between the genders–she’s a princess, but also a warrior, she can be a lover, mother, and sister, she is gentle and yet merciless, her sense of moral code and dedication to justice may even surpass that of Superman. She is a god-driven force of will who can also be a sense of inspiration and hope to people, mainly women and young girls.
It seems that all this talk about how Wonder Woman isn’t “interesting” is really just a cover-up for the fact people either can’t write interesting, layered female characters, or just don’t want to.”
Pro Tip: if you’re looking to impress me, sharing an endless string of sexist bull shit on Facebook is not going to work.
"I’ll see you in the future when we’re older
and we are full of stories to be told.
Cross my heart and hope to die,
I’ll see you with your laughter lines.”

THIS whenever some girl brags about being “one of the boys” or says something like “I’m not like other girls, I LOVE [stereotypically masculine thing].”
I want to add that I TOTALLY understand if you’ve done this and you don’t need to feel stupid for it. In my experience, many (most?) people who can sense an imbalance between genders start here. It seems to make sense when you’re first grappling with the idea that women are treated differently - girls get made fun of for X, and you don’t do X, so you’re not like other girls, the ones who are holding all girls back. A lot of people fall into the trap of thinking that because people have a problem with, for example, girls who like boy bands, that the thing that needs to change is girls liking boy bands and not people judging the value of girls based on whether they like boy bands.
I’m not saying it’s an okay thing to think, and once you realize you’re doing it you should do some work on yourself to get rid of the thinking that says there is a right way to be a girl. But you don’t need to beat yourself to a pulp over it, because internalized anything really is an easy trap to fall into.(via coffeebuddha)
tl;dr - Redditor whining about being friendzoned gets politely told.
This needs to be reblogged until every immature little asshat on the planet gets the message.
