The Diversity Gap in the highest grossing science fiction and fantasy films. Sad, right? You can see the full study here.
from the infographic:
Among the top 100 domestic grossing films:
- only 8% of films star a protagonist of color
- of the 8 protagonists of color, all are men; 6 are played by Will Smith and 1 is a cartoon character (Aladdin)
- 0% of protagonists are women of color
- 0% of protagonists are LGBTQ
- 1% of protagonists are people with a disability
I never understood why the genre I love so much doesn’t love me back :(
I admit this broke my heart because…me, too.
I have to say that one of the most unexpected and amazing things about Medievalpoc is that I’ve discovered I’m not alone in feeling that way; that there is a whole community out here trying to change that.
Because some days I have exactly ZERO patience for Martha Jones hate.
Martha rocks my world.
I could write an essay about Martha Jones the things she did. Martha Jones is awesome. End of conversation.
Martha deserved better, but series 3 was so much more…realism, really.
Also, dear fandom
“I’d forgotten not all victories are about saving the universe.”
That’s the thing that makes a companion awesome? Really? Not that humans are awesome? No such thing as an ordinary human? Because ordinary humans are all extraordinary BECAUSE they are ordinary humans?
clearly we don’t like Who for the same reasons dude
Oh man yes this.
Also, highlighting the other companions’ accomplishments just underscores how often the female characters’ greatest achievements are things that are completely accidental or incidental to them. The metacrisis was something that *happened* to Donna more than something she did. Rose became the Bad Wolf through her own stubborn determination, but still… once she accidentally transcended time and space, the rest was pretty easy.
Martha wasn’t destined for cosmic greatness through some predestination loop and she wasn’t shazamed by phlebotinum into some kind of super being.
She walked every step of her journey by herself.
Jensen Ackles at San Diego Comic Con: July 27, 2014.
Tiny Princess Thor has acquired a little brother! Tiny Prince Loki, age six months, made his (very brief) debut at San Diego Comic-Con 2014 on Friday and promptly stole and gnawed on Thor’s hammer. Also he met a Big Prince Loki who he was not so sure about. (Thank you, kind Loki costumer, for indulging us.)
Tiny Prince Loki’s costume is based on Thor and the Warriors Four, when everyone got turned into babies. It’s basically a green onesie with gold accents, a gold headband with wee little horns, and gold cuffs. When he’s a little bigger, I might make it a little more detailed, assuming Thor hasn’t outgrown her dress by then.
does anything actually happen in Western Australia or is that entire state a myth

HELLO BOYS YOU ARE ALLOWED TO BE SAD IF THE GIRL YOU LIKE DOESNT LIKE YOU BACK
YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO CALL HER A WHORE/SLUT/PRUDE BITCH ETC AND THINK YOURE ENTITLED TO HER NETHER REGIONS
I started to read that in Crowley’s voice but as I got further on it slowly turned into Thor.
"tumblr is great except for…"
the neo-nazis? the violent misogynists? the white supremacists? the glorification of mass murderers? the blogs committed to telling marginalized people to commit suicide? the pedophiles?
ah, yes, clearly it’s the marginalized people trying to get rights. they are the problem here. because they’re occasionally overzealous. or something.
