44% of the audience of Guardians of the Galaxy is female and all the speculation states that women went to see it for Chris Pratt’s body. I don’t think that’s fair. Maybe (and this is crazy) they just like kickass movies with space shit and explosions. Maybe women can do things without men being their motivation. Maybe.

I went for Glenn Close.

I went for Zoe Saldana and Karen Gillan. And the kickass stuff.

also let’s be real, there is literally only about 10 seconds of chris pratt not wearing a shirt in that movie. that is certainly not what i went to see it four times for.

it’s a metaphor. you put the spider between your teeth, but you don’t actually swallow it, so you stay average and spiders georg remains an outlier who shouldn’t have been counted.

This is it. This is the beginning of the end. Eventually every single overused joke will be combined into one giant post that is the death of fun as this website collapses in on itself and we all go straight to skeleton hell jail

Not all jokes

Rowling wrote Hermione to eschew stereotypes. She doesn’t end up with the hero; she is never there to function as Harry’s love interest. She prefers Arithmancy to Divination in school. Hermione is also a total badass, despite her prim and proper reputation. (…) So often, female characters are allowed to be aggressive or rebellious, but in exchange are stripped of any traditionally feminine qualities and instead are forced to pick up traditionally masculine traits. However, Hermione is never made to do that. Most notably, she is written to be highly logical AND emotionally expressive, a combination not commonly afforded to most of today’s leading ladies.
