Good I am pleased GOOD.
For those of you who are not convinced here are some more reasons why skinny Steve can get it:
- no-gray area morality in a small, convenient carry size
- adorable doe eyes set in cute, floppy-haired head
- take-no-shit attitude with a dash of hurt/comfort potential
- actual hero in a world where no one will acknowledge it
- actual hero despite non-acknowledgement
- except for Buck and Peg, the founders of the Skinny Steve Fan Club
- so we’re in super good company
- greNADE SCENE GRENADE SCENE I DON’T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO TELL YOU THAT WAS THE SEXIEST, MOST TOUCHING THING EVER IT WAS LIKE MY HEART GOT A HARD-ON
In conclusion, big Steve is nice and all but I fell for skinny Steve first.
CA:TWS, as a film, was a fantastic exercise in putting genuinely decent and optimistic characters (except for Steve himself, at this point, but we can go into that later) up against a nearly ripped-from-the-headlines plot that distills a lot of this country’s cynicism and negativity, particularly in my age group. More than any of the other MCU films, I think this was aimed directly at us, the people in our late teens and twenties and early thirties who sometimes start crying on the toilet because not only will we never be able to stop working our terrible service-industry jobs, we will also never be able to make a safe and comfortable world for the kids who come after us, or take care of our parents when they need us. On top of all that, we’re in this lame dystopian surveillance society where the government hates us, military force has taken the place of diplomacy and stuff like drone warfare is something we’re supposed to just accept, like it’s not horrifying. It’s a story specifically for my generation to try and find some solidarity with.
Which is a pretty ballsy play for a movie with a main character that’s 95.

Anonymous said: Let me get this straight, Nicki Minaj can wiggle her butt six ways till Sunday and people can call her a black feminist messiah, but when there's a weak-ass Spider-Woman variant cover that make her look like she's posing like Nicki Minaj, it suddenly NOT okay and Marvel should be ashamed??? I'm honestly, seriously confused here :/
Nicki Minaj is also a real person who makes real decisions for herself and made a video and song that celebrated her own body and her own sexuality while outright critiquing the Male Gaze through visual metaphor
Jessica Drew is not a real person and was drawn by a man in a submissive position who visually objectifies her (spandex doesn’t work on asses like that come on) and every female superhero he’s drawn. And he can’t even draw a background right.
repeat it with me now everybody: made up women drawn for gross men to jerk off to are NOT equivalent to real life women expressing their sexuality for their own benefit
