- Jared Leto’s performance was amazing
- Give me one reason why it wasn’t
- Or why he didn’t deserve that award
- That isn’t “oh he’s cis”
how about that his performance wasn’t “amazing” and that his character just perpetuated the “trans characters as tragedy porn”…
I feel like I need to reblog this every fucking hour so people will see it
wow famous people do things that every day people do like eat pizza and take part in the erasure of trans women wow that’s so cool :O
Look, they’re taking pictures of themselves! Now they’re celebrating their obscene excess within spitting distance of slums! And here’s them being white supremacists! They really are just like us!
SCRUB DUB DUB GOAT IN A TUB
How can you not reblog a soapy baby goat
Goats make me laugh because when they make goat noises their tongue goes out.
All right let’s make a massive tumblr-wide goat sound.
1. Stick out tongue
2. Make any sound
I’m sorry but like literally doctors dressed up like this
as a form of protection against epidemic disease. This is essentially the medieval European equivalent of a hazmat suit. Their ‘medicine’ was perfume and incense. That was their solution to the plague: bloodletting, frogs, and and posies of herbs (as protection to ward off the smell of the disease).
Like, everything smelled so bad they though disease was transmitted by foul odors. I’m not even kidding.
“The nose half a foot long, shaped like a beak, filled with perfume with only two holes, one on each side near the nostrils, but that can suffice to breathe and to carry along with the air one breathes the impression of the drugs enclosed further along in the beak … They also put mud in their trousers to keep the tumors away.”
THEY PUT FUCKING MUD IN THEIR PANTS. ON PURPOSE.
Cosmo, you sexist piece of shit.
Oh boo. There’s Wanda, his wife, grinning evilly in the background as he’s saying it.
Besides, context is important. Remember what this episode was? "Queen for a Day." The one with Trixie Tang’s birthday?
The entire point of Wanda hitting Timmy with this wish was to teach a moral to him. Timmy was hitting a mental roadblock trying to come up with a birthday present for Trixie, not having a clue what “a girl” would want for her birthday. Cue the wish forcing him into a female body and… Still pretty much liking the exact same stuff. And as he later found out, Trixie liked the same things he did, even if gender norms didn’t fit for it all.
In the end, Timmy ends up giving Trixie the present she wanted in a comic book store, but fakes getting upset over it when he gives it to her because her friends thought it was only for boys. But, she WAS grateful.
And this moment? This right here? Our male protagonist, Timmy, is now getting playfully mocked by Cosmo for suddenly being a girl. That’s going to teach boys, through the eyes of Timmy, how stupid it is to be demeaning to females for being female.
This episode was basically a giant slap in the face to the idea of gender norms. And you’re still calling Cosmo sexist for reinforcing the moral, which is how stupid even casual sexism is?
Childhood is firmly not ruined, thank you.
