christmas eve what about christmas adam
happy christmas adam to all men’s rights activists
Please stop pestering us with things like this. This has nothing to do with men fighting for their rights. Eve is short for ‘evening’. Please don’t turn activism into a joke. Thanks.
Someone isn’t having a good christmas adam
You know butt pose: It’s when female characters on movie posters are posed juuuuust so, enabling the audience a view of both her chest and her derriere, while any male characters get to face the camera and be all action-y. Here are some Avengers-y examples (scroll down). And a more recent one from Divergent. Here’s another. And another. And another. And another. Tauriel has no truck with that nonsense. Now strike a pose, Legolas!
MUST REBLOG just look long and hard at this composition, you guys, it’s almost like CREATIVE TEAMS ARE GOING OUT OF THEIR WAY TO RECOGNIZE AND SUBVERT TRADITIONALLY OBJECTIFYING FRAMES OF REFERENCE happy thanksgiving ya’ll
i luv this because i’ve always firmly believed that legolas was given the cliched “girl” role in the LOTR movies. also i loathe butt-pose posters and this cheers me. i would definitely watch The Hobbit if it was about legolas being tauriel’s male girlfriend, instead of being about hobbits and dwarves. (sorry hobbit fans.)
I’ve read a review of the film.
I know whose girlfriend Tauriel is. I’m not saying.
I’m DELIGHTED this poster exists. I’m DELIGHTED Evangeline Lily has said what she said about her inclusion in this film. I’m DELIGHTED certain Tolkien fans are boycotting the movie because they hate the departures from the text (more room for NICE people in the theater)
I’m pretty sure Weta and PJ and Crew went to New Line and WB and said, “Do this, or we’ll make a fuss in the press - and we’ll win.”
I’ve had a guy tell my friend that, because she’s female, she must not be a real fan (we we’re cosplaying at comic con). Yet, he didn’t say anything to me, someone he assumed to be male.

Not trying to detract from the original poster’s message, but that’s exactly what my boyfriend does to me when we talk about gaming.
Things that are creepy:
- Persistence after someone has said NO or STOP, or has made it clear they are not interested in your advances
- Invalidating someone’s “no”
- Only stopping your advances when somebody informs you they are taken (you are telling this person their “no” alone is not enough, which means you do not respect them)
- Asking “why” when somebody rejects your advances
- Asking “why not” when somebody refuses to give you their phone number
So lately practice has been going like this:
Suriashi, check. Consecutive, check. Fumikomi, not check! WHAT’S GOING ON. I then spent my entire practice going, MATCH UP MY SWING WITH FUMIKOMI. WHY WHY WHY
It’s not the only problem I’ve been having these days, but it’s something I want to hammer out. N sensei even told me that the reason Cobra Cat would always beat me last year was that she was all legwork, foot work, lunging forward where I depend on my very… frail… arm strength.
Other than that…. I keep trying to put the strength back on my left arm, but it keeps going back to my right arm. I wonder if it’s because I got a new shinai? It’s my first time using a woman’s shinai and the whole time I could not grip it right. Maybe it just takes some getting used to……
( In other news, coach says I’ve been improving!)
So personal practice aside, we had our internal, end of the year tournament. Let’s talk tourney thoughts real quick:
ALSO CAN I JUST SAY I’m so proud of my newbies. Specifically, I’m so proud of the girls! Literally, I cannot express how happy I was when I saw them. It was so good for their level. When I was observing another university’s newbies, I got mad thinking, “why are these kids better than mine?” But after today, I realized that our non-bogu stand a real good chance against people their level. Was so good. Let’s do better!
Competition things to keep in mind
But honestly, I was shaking by the end of my match with NC. Maybe I’m just a little weak today because I was tired? Maybe I need more hayasuburi? XD But either way, Today was so much fun. Like sensei said, there were different styles that give us new perspective on the world of kendo. I really enjoyed today.
This stuff will make our own tournament much. much. better.
