Of course they know.
While I’m on the topic of Ant Man…
I was baffled when I heard there was even going to be an Ant Man movie. From what I knew, Hank Pym was an abusive asshole and I didn’t see how they could make him a likable hero.
Hank only hit her once, so he’s not abusive. Now Mr.Fantastic was abusive he hit people more than once. And Hank does deserve a movie and Wasp is his sidekick. Wasp has never had her name in a comic book title, Hank has. Wasp has never been a big enough character to hold her own movie. She doesn’t have her own stories by herself. Hank does. He made her what she is. And Hank just has made a lot of mistakes, that would make for an excellent movie to show despite mistakes people can still be good people. Nobody is prefect and nobody has to be. Everyone makes mistakes.
dating me means dating my anxiety and my random spouts of depression it means dating my panic attacks at 11pm or 2 am or 5am or anytime of the day for that matter it means dating my mood swings where i get really upset over everything about me and all my insecurities and how i’m not good enough because i’m never good enough
A man in the grocery store line today approached me and said, “Sir, when I first saw you I was extremely attracted to you, but then I noticed that you are a boy. How… I mean, why do you dress so provocatively?”
I responded, “Well, in today’s world the majority of the straight male race view women as objects, or something that belongs to them. I dress provocatively because it attracts the attention of men in a sexual and OBJECTIVE way. However, when realized that I am actually male, they often become confused, disgusted, upset or all of the above. By inflicting this minor emotional damaged upon the ego of a man raised by twisted societal gender norms, maybe, just maybe the individual will think twice before viewing another woman with an objective attitude and sense of belonging. No woman, belongs to ANYONE. Male or female, the equality of human beings needs to be a priority. It is something worth dressing up for.”
I AM NOT KIDDING. The woman behind me, the female cashier, the old lady bagging groceries and the woman in front of me who was talking on the phone STOPPED, …. and proceeded to gasp and clap. The man shook my hand, told me to have a blessed day and then said, “excuse me ladies, I need to visit my daughter.”
…. I was shaking by the time I walked out of the store.
