i really hate the attitude a lot of men have about how women are so different and mysterious and hard to understand, as if women are some kind of foreign species and not fellow human beings and then complain about women being unapproachable and ‘prude’ 

you don’t get to put me on a pedestal and then complain about me being out of reach

"you don’t get to put me on a pedestal and then complain about me being out of reach”

I’ve never heard wiser words.

  • Oppressors: This shit. I cannot STAND this shit right here. YOU REALLY THINK THAT BECAUSE YOU'RE "''''OPPRESSED''''" YOU CAN BE MEAN TO MAJORITY GROUPS? HATE GETS US NOWHERE GUYS. STOP FUCKING BULLYING OR I'LL STOP SUPPORTING YOU AND YOUR MOVEMENT. FUCKING HYPOCRITES, I SWEAR TO GOD. THIS IS /JUST/ AS BAD AS WHEN WE OPPRESS YOU!

When I first got this role I just cried like a baby because I was like, “Wow, next Halloween, I’m gonna open the door and there’s gonna be a little kid dressed as the Falcon.” That’s the thing that always gets me. I feel like everybody deserves that. I feel like there should be a Latino superhero. Scarlett does great representation for all the other girls, but there should be a Wonder Woman movie. I don’t care if they make 20 bucks, if there’s a movie you’re gonna lose money on, make it Wonder Woman. You know what I mean, ’cause little girls deserve that.

This is why representation is important.

And in regards to Wonder Woman, DC has said people wouldn’t want to see a Wonder woman move…which, by people, they mean their idea of  “fanboys”.

Which, is honestly, an extremely poor excuse. People nowadays aged over at least twenty grew up with Lynda Carter on television as Wonder Woman, either in syndication or in re-runs, so they are very aware of the character even if they don’t follow comic books…not to mention she’s the female member of the “Big Three” and the most prominently represented and marketed female comic character by DC.

I think listening to actual people saying what they would like to see out of a movie, instead of assuming, would be a big step for DC. If Marvel can accomplish that, why can’t the other big company?
