Total unpopular opinion but:
Way to support your man, Pepper. Walk out on him when he’s in the middle of a ptsd attack. ……Yeah, that’ll show him how much you love him.
Not so unpopular. I had to close my eyes it was so painful. My friend had to leave the theater. I’m pretty much still feeling nauseous over this movie.
Okay, I have to say this, because it’s really starting to bother me that I haven’t seen a counter-response to this. As a person who does have anxiety, and panic attacks, this is a thing I feel like people don’t pay attention to about the whole ‘providing support for those with mental health issues:’ you have to take care of yourself first in order to be any good as a support system to another person. You can’t drain yourself, or put yourself in danger, to take care of another. It will always backfire and breed resentment, especially if they’re being reckless. Tony was being reckless with the things he was creating (I suspect this was part of why he blew up the suits at the end). Pepper was attacked by the faulty suit. Through the entire movie we were shown that the nanotech suit was not stable, and in Tony’s sleep, it responded to Pepper as if she were a threat to him. If he hadn’t woken up when she screamed it would have continued to do so, and we (and Pepper) know exactly just what that can entail. He could have killed her in his sleep. Before I saw the movie, based on these posts I honestly thought she’d just gone “lol sorry Tony gotta have my beauty sleep” and peaced out but that is not what happened: she was literally attacked by the suit, had a (completely understandable) freak-out of her own, and left, because she felt unsafe. Did it suck? Yes. But it isn’t Pepper’s job as a SO, or any other part of Tony’s life, to keep herself in a position where she feels unsafe in order to be supportive. That isn’t what supporting someone who struggles with mental health is about.
I actually really liked this aspect of the movie: it portrayed Tony’s PTSD as a genuine struggle for both of them without placing blame on either party for those difficulties. Tony had every right to need help in this moment, and Pepper had every right to leave a situation where she felt unsafe. Sometimes situations are just crappy. This was one of them. That’s why it was hard to watch — because it was real. It was meant to be.
so i went on the american apparel site today
looking at the socks
here’s one of the pictures for men’s socks
seriously i’m not one to complain…
men get into something not aimed at their gender: get special titles like “brony.” recognition by creators. heralded for defying gender appeal. get documentary.
women get into something not aimed at their gender: not real fans. probably secret friend zone warriors deadset on erasing men from the human race. get insulting demeaning memes and sexual harassment.
“Blood is thicker than water”, when used in the context of family over friends, is in fact a wildly incorrect bastardisation.
The true, full quote is “The blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb,” and refers to relationships forged by choice holding deeper meaning than those of mere biology.
GUYS, PLEASE, SHARE THIS!
As you may know, we’re having some difficult times here in Brazil. What started as a protest against the abusive prices of the public transportation system became a fight for rights.
We’re fighting against our corrupt government, our lack of rights, fighting against something that seems like some sort of twisted dictatorship.
And the media is not helping. By distorting images, the biggest channel here is making the protestors look like the evil guys. But these pictures show that they’re nothing like that. Peaceful people being shot, beaten, arrested, dragged out of hospitals.
THE WORLD NEEDS TO SEE THIS! THE WORLD NEEDS TO KNOW!
We’re done being put down, we’re done being abused! WE ARE THE FUTURE, WE ARE REVOLUTION!
“I’ve got a problem with procrastination. And it’s especially bad now, because I’ve got this opportunity to write for a music magazine. The thing is… I know what I should be doing: reaching out to bands, doing interviews, networking with new bands before they get big. I know that it’s going to involve hustling every single day. And I hope this doesn’t make me sound like a loser, but I have trouble getting revved up on any given day to start down the path.”
“Can I give one piece of advice?”
“Instead of focusing on the million things you need to do to be successful, focus on two or three things you can do to move forward each day. The quickest way out of paralysis is a simple daily routine.”
“I rushed through life. Now I’m relaxing. And I’ve gotten more out of relaxing than I did out of rushing.”
“What were you rushing toward?”
“Didn’t you get satisfaction from your achievements?”
“No. They only caused me to want more achievements.”
“Why should we care about women’s representation in video games?”
“Nobody is going to want a female protagonist!”
“Their target audience isn’t big enough to warrant any games!”
“Women aren’t as capable as men, they don’t belong in video games!”
“If more women starting playing video games, maybe then they’d have a say in the matter!”
