Character: Li Shang
Appears in: Mulan
Commonly Interpreted as: Straight

But Really: For the vast majority of the movie Mulan, Li Shang believes that Mulan is actually a young man named Ping. Most of their relationship actually develops while Li Shang believes Mulan is a man. 

This could be read in through a heteronormative lens; i.e. that a romantic relationship between two men is impossible and a platonic friendship between a man and a woman is impossible - because the catalyst that changes Mulan and Li Shang’s relationship from friendship to romance is the reveal of Mulan as a woman. It could also be read in a somewhat misogynist way: that a woman who’s “not like other girls” is better than a woman who is ‘too’ feminine.

However, I’m reading this as evidence that Li Shang is queer. Though he might not have consciously realised it, Li Shang fell in love with Mulan even while he thought she was a man.

Thanks to Anon for this suggestion.

I welcome any and all submissions or suggestions. I could especially use some help with entries for trans characters and characters of colour whose bisexuality is erased.

So I got a commission to make the shirt and then I just decided to draw Steve in it (prints here)

One of the reasons women in Marvel mentoring other women is so important to me is that mentorship isn’t a one-way street. It’s not just that characters like Laura and Rikki and Anya and Skye need someone to look up to and guide them. It’s also that characters like Nat and Jess and Melinda May deserve the constant reminder that they are heroes, that they deserve to be looked up to, that they’re part of something bigger, and that they matter.

Don’t Say “That’s So Gay” Campaign (Wanda Sykes) [ x ]

How about a round of applause.

Two other women, also breast cancer survivors, said their husbands left them after they were diagnosed. Both had to have mastectomies (in case anyone doesn’t know, this is the surgical operation to remove one or both breasts).

The first woman said her husband told her that he would rather see her dead than see her lose her breasts. The second woman had her operation and waited all day to be picked up by her husband, who never arrived. By nightfall, one of the nurses offered to give her a ride, and she came home to find the house empty.

Obviously, these are extreme cases of a man’s reaction to his wife’s breast cancer, but this is what I see when I see the “I ♥ Boobies” bracelets. I see love of the body parts, not the person being treated—not the patient, not the victim, not the survivor.

↳ captain america: the winter soldier - nick fury is attacked

Look at this. JUST LOOK AT HOW FUCKING BADASS THIS IS.

But you still truly fear for him, because this shit happens right in the middle of a city in broad daylight, where they’re gonna riddle him with bullets and tear him into pieces. And how most people would then regard him simply as a common criminal rightfully pursued by the police, who deserved the very public execution he’s about to get.

There’s a lot to be said about how they chose the “police” machinery to take down Fury, while Steve and company was pursued by nondescript Hydra thugs and the presumably private STRIKE team. They would have absolutely no problem to murder Fury then and there, but with Steve they know they simply cannot do it when there are witnesses around.

Not here, they say for Steve Rogers. But right here and right now for Nick Fury.

And also? Before the attack, Fury sees the white cops eyeballing him in his nice SUV and says “you wanna see my lease?” This man has decades of experience in intelligence operations. He’s been lead developer on an international security-based predictive analysis program. He’s an operations mastermind. 

AND NICK FURY DOESN’T SEE THIS ATTACK COMING BECAUSE THE WARNING SIGNS LOOK EXACTLY LIKE THE AVERAGE INSTITUTIONAL RACISM HE SEES ON A REGULAR BASIS. 

i am showing my privilege, i never quite made it through to the bolded pointed when thinking about this scene before. which makes it exponentially more horrifying.

And that really was POLICE machinery- at least to anyone who isn’t a serious hardcore gun geek, who knows exactly what makes and models police have and where, and can ID on sight- there’s no reason for witnesses to go “But cops don’t use that kind of weapon or force this doesn’t seem legit”

That whole sequence is terrifyingly legit-feeling.

The only red flags their attack really would raise would be of the “Don’t get involved, hide, try to not get killed too, oh my god the fucking cops in this country are terrifying” kind of red flag.

And the police weaponry we saw here isn’t even half as militarized as the stuff the actual police just rolled out in real life in Missouri.

Howling angels

Think about the first Howling Commando who actually, really died. Dum Dum, probably – heart attacks are terrible things, and I can imagine it would have been hard to convince him to stop doing all of those things that made life so enjoyable. Still, he had several good years with his grandkids. 

But imagine the ruckus he made when he got upstairs and found out that the Captain and his Sergeant weren’t already there. I can see him holding a gun on St. Peter – I don’t know if you can get firearms in heaven, but if you can I’m sure Dum Dum would find a way – and demanding to know where they were. Because damn it, there’s no way those boys ended up downstairs.

When they told him what happened, he’d have hated every single thing about it. But there would have been at least one angel watching over the Winter Soldier.

"Avengers" makes it clear that they’d all died by the time Steve made it back – hopefully Dum Dum explained the situation to them, and they avoided any more angelic standoffs – and the entire team was up in heaven cheering Cap on during the fight against the Chitauri. They would have gotten more worried about Steve as the months went on – even if they didn’t talk about it in those days, those boys knew all about PTSD – and they would have been watching so hard they were leaning over the damn clouds by the time the events of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" rolled around.

"Did you really think one measly little aircraft would be enough to take out Captain ‘I laugh in the face of danger’ Rogers?"

"Come on, Sarge, just pick the gun up from off the table and shoot him. Then this’ll all be over."

"Damn it, Cap, you need to duck when people are shooting things at you!"

"Just stop shooting for five seconds, would you? You’ll be really upset if you wake up and find out you’ve killed Cap."

"I’d like to go down there and smite Pierce’s ass, that son of a—"

Could they do anything, from all the way up there? I don’t know. But if they could … well, maybe it wasn’t an accident that Bucky’s mask fell off when it did.

Maybe it was just the Howling Commandos, the rowdiest angels in heaven, watching their brothers’ backs one more time. 

Oh, now this is awesome.

please, in the name of all that is holy, give me a scene in season two where some asshole bad guy derisively calls may the cavalry when she’s not present

"don’t call her that," skye says coldly

and the asshole bad guy continues to do it anyway, so skye warns him again and when he doesn’t stop, she punches him

"i said don’t call her that,” skye says when her fist connects with his face
