Ahh yes, the respectability politics of rap, never attacking the industry that owns the rappers they despise.
And lets not act like old school rappers that spoke to all the issues above exclusively.
Let’s also remember that 70% of the listeners of said rappers are white . Hence white owners using black bodies to preach their patriarchal values to white children .
Steve Rogers did, in fact, realize that something was off when he saw the outline of the woman’s odd bra (a push-up bra, he would later learn), but being an officer and a gentleman, he said that it was the game that gave the future away.
No, see, this scene is just amazing. The costume department deserves so many kudos for this, it’s unreal, especially given the fact that they pulled off Peggy pretty much flawlessly.
1) Her hair is completely wrong for the 40’s. No professional/working woman would have her hair loose like that. Since they’re trying to pass this off as a military hospital, Steve would know that she would at least have her hair carefully pulled back, if maybe not in the elaborate coiffures that would have been popular.
2) Her tie? Too wide, too long. That’s a man’s tie, not a woman’s. They did, however, get the knot correct as far as I can see - that looks like a Windsor.
3) That. Bra. There is so much clashing between that bra and what Steve would expect (remember, he worked with a bunch of women for a long time) that it has to be intentional. She’s wearing a foam cup, which would have been unheard of back then. It’s also an exceptionally old or ill-fitting bra - why else can you see the tops of the cups? No woman would have been caught dead with misbehaving lingerie like that back then, and the soft satin cups of 40’s lingerie made it nearly impossible anyway. Her breasts are also sitting at a much lower angle than would be acceptable in the 40’s.
Look at his eyes. He knows by the time he gets to her hair that something is very, very wrong.
so what you are saying is S.H.E.I.L.D. has a super shitty costume division….
Nope, Nick Fury totally did this on purpose.
There’s no knowing what kind of condition Steve’s in, or what kind of person he really is, after decades of nostalgia blur the reality and the long years in the ice (after a plane crash and a shitload of radiation) do their work. (Pre-crash Steve is in lots of files, I’m sure. Nick Fury does not trust files.) So Fury instructs his people to build a stage, and makes sure that the right people put up some of the wrong cues.
Maybe the real Steve’s a dick, or just an above-average jock; maybe he had a knack for hanging out with real talent. Maybe he hit his head too hard on the landing and he’s not gonna be Captain anymore. On the flipside, if he really is smart, then putting him in a standard, modern hospital room and telling him the truth is going to have him clamming up and refusing to believe a goddamn thing he hears for a really long time.
The real question here is, how long it does it take for the man, the myth, the legend to notice? What does he do about it? How long does he wait to get his bearings, confirm his suspicions, and gather information before attempting busting out?
Turns out the answer’s about forty-five seconds.
Sometimes clever posts die a quiet death in the abyss of the unreblogged. Some clever posts get attention, get comments, get better. Then there’s this one which I’ve watched evolve into a thing of brilliance.
OK first you’re being a total dick right now,
I think I just heard my heart break.
"cool lol" tHEYRE ACTUALLY TESTING TO FIND OUT IF WE’RE LIVING INSIDE A COMPUTER SIMULATION AND YOUR RESPONSE TO THAT IS
They’ve done the tests, and have evidence that our universe may actually be a simulation: http://www.nature.com/news/simulations-back-up-theory-that-universe-is-a-hologram-1.14328
It’s less that we may be living within a computer simulation, but more like the foundations of our universe ( the laws of physics) are written on a lower dimensional plane, and the observable universe that we see is a projection (simulation) up onto a higher dimension.
are you telling me that
we’re in someones fucking sims game
Lately I’ve actually liked school better than being at home because at least there I have friends that see value in me for something other than my ability to do chores and get good grades.
When is my mom going to learn that devaluing me for not doing well in school is literally going to just make me do worse due to anxiety.

Just a few thoughts of mine that I tweeted after leaving the theatre after watching X-Men: Days of Future Pasts….a few typos here and there so forgive me. If we understand mutants to metaphors for marginalized peoples such as persecuted people of color or members of the LGBTA community then it’s ONLY logical to see sentinels as tools, weapons used to hurt, kill and obliterate these said marginalized groups peoples.
Sentinels will always grab my attention, always. Because if you think about it…there’s a ton of “real life sentinels” targeting people now whether or not people see them and acknowledge them as such.
So please don’t tell me comic books are “just for kids”. Don’t tell me comic books don’t contribute to social commentary and/or that they don’t have any significance, just don’t.
aka why superheroes are important
ripopentheuniverse why am i just now seeing this awesome post of yours lol
ALL of this. So true.
