HOW I SAT NEXT TO CHRIS PINE IN THE DARK FOR TWO HOURS

starfleetofficial:

OKAY. SO.

My friends Megan and Jonathan and I heard about this private screening of a movie called ‘This is Not a Club’ which is about speech and debate and since we’re all speechies we were all psyched to go. (Megan and I actually run fuckyeahspeech. Represent, yo.) The screening was happening in LA and we all live in LA so we were like FUCK YEAH and high-tailed it over there.

So we get there to this tiny private theater and suddenly realize WE ARE SEVERELY UNDER-DRESSED and everyone seems to know each other and maybe we shouldn’t be here???? BUT FUCK EVERYTHING we go in anyway.

So we get in the theater and we sit down and people are trickling in and I look up— and there is a man standing there in the aisle talking to someone. He is wearing a turquoise bro tank and white-washed jeans and I’m like ‘well clearly i’m not the only one under-dressed’ and then—. Wait. IS THAT FUCKING CHRIS PINE.

I lean over to Megan and whisper, “isthatchrispine.” And she and Jonathan look up and we’re just staring at him and trying to lean in oh so casually to see if we can recognize his voice. Megan says, “I’m gonna google him to see what current hairstyle he has.” And just as she pulls her phone out a man behind me yells, “Hey CP!” And he looks up and starts to head over and I whisper (very forcefully) “MEGANTHATSHIMTHATSDEFINITELYHIMPUTYOURPHONEAWAY.”

and so GOOD OLE’ CP WALKS OVER IN ALL HIS BEARDED GLORY AND HIS FRIEND POINTS AT THE OPEN SEAT NEXT TO ME AND SAYS “HERE I HAVE A SEAT FOR YOU HERE.”

And??? My heart started beating so quickly?? He sat down next to me and the room darkened and I was so conscious of all my limbs and GOD DAMN IT WHY DID I CHOOSE TODAY TO WEAR FLIP FLOPS. FUCK I TOTALLY FORGOT TO PUT DEODORANT ON DIDN’T I. FUCK.

Long story short I spent about 50% of the movie listening to his little FUCKING CHRIS PINE GIGGLES AND WATCHING HIS LIL FIDGETY HANDS MOVE AND OUR ARMS BRUSHED AND I’LL NEVER BE THE SAME.

GOOD FUCKIGN BYE WORLD.

Persepolis (2007) - Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud

Story of a rebel and outspoken young Iranian girl during the Islamic Revolution.

5 things about this movie:

1- It’s in french.
2- You can learn Islamic history and a lot about women rights.
3- It’s as great as the book.
4- It’s based on the life of Marjane Satrapi, the writer of the movie and the book.
5- It’s an animated movie, yeah, but it’s for adults. (I’m not saying that adults can’t watch disney films) 

I fucking loved this book and film

No, I’d say the show does a great job of representing the typical 18-34 male with Larry, with his constant need for validation, attention, and the world to revolve around him.

not to mention Bennet’s quest to prove that he’s a man, Pornstache’s overcompensation that disguises his vulnerability, Healy’s struggle to make positive change that is frustrated by his need to be loved by a woman, and Caputo’s exploration of his desire to control the world around him and whether or not he wants to do that. men are quite accurately represented in the show, the only issue male viewers seem to have is that these men display the warped nature of man’s dominance, and the idea that their superiority is not perfect and noble is offensive.

conversely, what they seem to ignore is Yadriel. Most likely because he is a man of color, and even though he is a minor character he is shown to be a devoted partner and father (although stoic) and this challenges many stereotypes about men of color and fatherhood. But that doesn’t matter to these guys. Because they only care about the white guy’s stories and how they are represented.

honestly curious, why does it offend you?

i see lucy as a racist film that plays on negative stereotypes while hiding behind the cover of (white) feminism. 

all this film has done is switch out the white man for a white woman. it’s still a film about a white person getting violated by the evil poc, then gaining power and wiping them out. 

here’s 2 of my favourite scenes from the trailer:

from top to left to right:

KEEP CLEAN 保持清潔,APPLE 蘋果,ONION 洋蔥,GRAPE 葡萄,CHAIR 椅子 EDIT: sorry it says ORANGE 橘子,TOMATO 番茄

traditional chinese is an actual written language used by millions of people, not symbols to be thrown around at the whim of set designers because they look cool and idk, serves to create a menacing asian atmosphere. this is so disrespectful, and made even worse by the fact that this film in set it taipei, taiwan where the official written language is traditional chinese.

it doesn’t matter that this film caters to a primarily “white” audience who won’t be able to read it, the language and culture of taiwan isn’t something for you to twist and use as you deem fit because it’s “exotic.”

lucy shoots a guy for not being able to speak english. 

she l i t e r a l l y shoots this taiwanese taxi driver, in taiwan for not being able to speak english. she’s in taipei and she’s shooting people as they are of no use to her because they don’t speak english. 

just think about the sort of message that’s sending out. she’s not being “bad-ass strong female character who takes no shit,” she’s saying that english is useful and better. this is the type of harmful ideology that stretches all the way back from when western countries were colonising and forcing their language and customs on other countries. 

let me explain with a real life example. i was born in new zealand to two taiwanese parents. i am fluent in english, but mandarin is conversational at best. my friends in taiwan say that i am “so lucky” to speak fluent english, when they are fluent in mandarin and their english level is no worse than my mandarin. they tell me that they want to perfect their english but in the same breath tell me that mandarin isn’t worth perfecting because i have english and that’s “enough”. they also tell me how pretty my white friends are when they see pictures.

this is the type of neo imperialism ideology that they’ve grown up buying into. it honestly hurts and frustrates me that they belittle their own culture like this, honestly believing that the western world is superior. this is the type of neo imperialism ideology that this film (hopefully unintentionally) promotes: white people are better and will save the day. 

if they wanted to film a movie about a white women getting back at those who had violated her, why not film it in a western country? if they wanted to film it in taiwan, why not find an asian lead actress?

i do agree that we need more women protagonists in action/superhero movies, but not like this. its not okay that the female lead needs to be kidnapped and have her body cut open without her consent in order to gain her powers, and those said those powers do not make any of this racist bullshit okay. 

i am just so tired and angry of poc always being brushed off to the side as either props or villains in mainstream media. 

as a poc, it’s so frustrating to see that the of the standard of beauty still white women when we live in multi-cultural societies and a diverse world. 

feminism is about equality. a film in which poc are presented as evil and inferior before being killed off by a superior white woman does not promote equality.
