Question with 3 notes
Anonymous asked: Just read a post you commented on about there only being one female role in most action movies. Suckerpunch is an awesome (but weird film) where a group of 4 girls kick some ass against this guy who makes them dance and shit for his 'clients' :)
No, that was an awesome high art/ high visual film about perception and reality
I don’t even remember where I found this gif, but it’s fucking hilarious
You know you’re a survivor when you know you need to cry but you’re physically incapable of it because your abuser would say you’re being despicable and manipulative for doing so.
Young people are all the same: they all want to do something different.

do action movies know they can have more than one female character
Someone should make an action movie with all girls except for one guy and have no explanation or mention of it in the movie and then pay all of the actors to act surprised like they’d never noticed when they get the inevitable storm of questions.
they should have them beat up all girl henchman as well, and then have that one right hand midboss goon be a male that looks frail but is badass as fuck and can only be taken out by the main protagonist or the comic relief.

oh, and the evil genius has to wear a dress, and be holding the Mad Scientist’s Beautiful Son, whom the squad must rescue
The wheels take impact and stress off your legs, and the position helps your spine, but you’re still doing running motions instead of biking motions, so your legs are getting a good workout, and you can go for longer
Kinda reminds me of that guy who made a cardboard Blue Falcon wrapped around a big tricycle.
"and that is why pink ribbons are for boobies." -hank green
Actually, Boys and girls both wore white dresses, and colors were introduced in the mid 19th century,
"The march toward gender-specific clothes was neither linear nor rapid. Pink and blue arrived, along with other pastels, as colors for babies in the mid-19th century, yet the two colors were not promoted as gender signifiers until just before World War I—and even then, it took time for popular culture to sort things out." (Smithsonian magazine, x)
According to wikipedia :
One reason for the increased use of pink for girls and blue for boys was “the invention of new chemical dyes, which meant that children’s clothing could be mass-produced and washed in hot water without fading. Prior to this time, most small children of both sexes wore white, which could be frequently washed. Another factor was the popularity of blue and white sailor suits for young boys, a fashion that started in the late 19th century. Blue was also the usual color of school uniforms, for boys and girls. Blue was associated with seriousness and study, while pink was associated with childhood and softness.”
Also, considering I just read 15 articles on this topic from varying sources… the one common theme? all after WWII, but STARTED to become signifiers before/during WWI,
but not ONE mention of Hitler. Only American mainstream culture.
In fact, heres an interesting section from Hue, a blog someone is maintaining about the history of colors:
"After WWI, blue was used extensively for men’s uniforms. Therefore, blue became associated as more of a masculine color. From the 1940’s onward, pink was pushed as a woman’s color. "Think Pink" was the marketing slogan to convince women to embrace their femininity. Dressing girls in pink reinforced this role by conditioning with a set of rules that started with little girls, made of "sugar and spice and everything nice."
oh my god are you guys comparing the color pink with hitler without doing ANY background research
ALL SPECULATIONS ON HOW IT BECAME ASSOCIATION ARE MERELY SPECULATIONS THERE ARE NO HARD FACTS
EVEN FUCKING **JEZEBEL** SAYS NOTHING ABOUT HITLER/BEING EFFEMINATE OR WHAT HAVE YOU, THEY QUOTE THE SMITHSONIAN AS WELL
DO RESEARCH YOU BLIND SHEEP
