Claire's Tumblr

I'm a geek, musician, student, writer, reader, and scribbler.

This tumblr is a mad collection of my art, my life, my hopeful-travels, and all of the wonderfully nerdy things therein!

Say hello! I promise, I don't bite, and I enjoy making new friends whenever I can!

(I don't automatically follow back, but I think you're all fantastic!)

I know! It’s been a couple of days…and I’m still seething a bit. I still don’t get it. Like, EVERYTHING we’ve seen of Peggy?? People still want to attack her for being a strong, complex female character??? And attack this show which has the possibility of bringing even more great, well-rounded women into the mix???? WHY

Boycotting Agent Carter because the MCU is messing up in other ways is like walking into a local bookstore, and screaming at a random salesperson ILL NEVER BUY ANYTHING FROM YOU AGAIN, ALL THE NOVELS HERE ARE TERRIBLE 

because you spotted a novel with problematic sexism, next to the works of of Octavia Butler, and a myriad of other fantastic, feminist writers.

Feminism in a consumer economy has to fight its way through a clusterfuck of s h i t, and the way to help it reach prominence in the media is by supporting feminist works, and criticizing the works that display externalized and internalized bigotry, and doing it loudly

The only thing that happens when you boycott a feminist work is that every sexist in the joint cries aloud and says LOOK, FEMALE-LED PROJECTS ALWAYS FAIL.

Why, why on earth would you boycott an actually feminist work, if you call yourself a feminist? Everything points to Agent Carter being a groundbreaking show, that’ll help pave the way for other franchises and studios to follow suit, and stop pussyfooting around with the bullshit excuse of “women don’t sell.”

This show needs to be a success. If you look at it and don’t see the glorious potential for a beautiful throng of diverse, complex women, I wash my hands of you. 







[echoes of eleven blowing up cybermen to get information in the distance]

People who don’t love Nine are the dumbest.

People think that Nine is dark sullen and a killer. They’re wrong. Nine not dark. He’s light and happy and in love. He wear a leather jacket and is the closest Doctor the the Time War but he is not dark. He is a light person who is fighting his dark past. He knows what he’s done and is fighting to write his wrongs. He just wants everyone to live.

Eleven on the other hand is the exact opposite. People think he’s a puppy in a fez. They’re wrong. He is not happy and joyful. He’s careless. He is having adventures while ruining lives and killing people. He is the man who forgets. He has forgotten the pain he felt after what he did and now is so comfortable killing.

He doesn’t remember Nine. Nine, the Doctor with depression. Nine, the Doctor who fell in love with an nineteen year old shop girl who didn’t need a magic back story to be special. Nine, the Doctor who went and saved his friends without killing. Nine, the Doctor who chose to lose instead of causing loss.

Nine chooses to give up being a god. Eleven pretends he is a god. Nine would make a merciful god. Eleven acts like a vengeful god. Nine is a puppy in a leather jacket. Eleven is a a killer in a fez.

Wow, that just summed up my feelings on where Doctor Who has gone better than anything else I’ve read.

Asker kitsune-jade Asks:
Wait, wait. Are people actually saying they are going to boycott Agent Carter because of the news about Jan? Of all the things to boycott, Agent FUCKING CARTER? Are people even thinking logically? How in the world would that make the Marvel execs rethink their decision. I mean how does Agent Carter directly affect what happened to Jan? Shouldn't people boycott or you know stop giving support to the project in which Jan should be in like Ant-Man or Avengers? What. Just. What?! (ノಠ益ಠ)ノ彡┻━┻

Well, you have to remember that Marvel fandom loves nothing more than pitting women against each other, so the “I’M BOYCOTTING AGENT CARTER BECAUSE I’M NOT GETTING JAN” is actually a sequel in a long line of fail that also included these blockbusters: 

1. I’m Boycotting the Black Widow Solo Book Because It’s Not A Mockingbird Solo

2.  I’m Boycotting the Black Widow Solo Book Because Remender Fridged Sharon

3.  I’m Boycotting the Black Widow Solo Book Because Marvel Only Cares About Black Widow 

4. Carol Danvers Is the Only Female Character Who Deserves a Solo Movie

5. Carol Danvers Deserves a Solo Movie More Than Black Widow

6. Natasha Stole Sharon’s Role In CATWS

7 . Maria Hill Stole Sharon’s Role in CATWS

8. Jessica Drew and Natasha Have No Right To Be In Secret Avengers Because MOCKINGBIRD IS BETTER!!!!!!!!! 

9. Sif is More Important Than Jane Foster FOR FEMINISM

10. Jane Foster Is More Important Than Sif FOR FEMINISM.

So you know. Marvel Fandom: Pitting Women Against Each Other Since They Unfortunately Gained Access to the Internet. This particular failure is standard operating procedure.
