having a friend over and not having anything fun to do
It took me 18 years to realise Saturday has turd in it
There is no defense for white-washing.
"Historical accuracy" certainly isn’t one.
If you’d actually read any real history you’d know PoC have been everywhere since the dawn of time.
All those precious “European” (because when racists say “European” they mean…
Does anyone else find it odd that our society expects 14-year-old kids to know what jobs they will want for the rest of their lives, but doesn’t believe an adult woman when she says she doesn’t want to be a mother?
I am SICK and TIRED of people objecting to seeing women using their breasts for what they are actually for. BREASTFEEDING IS NOT VULGAR OR OBSCENE.
I support breastfeeding all the way, even if it is in public.
And the award winning one:
THIS. THIS. THIS/
If I was taken to build a bear on a date and got to make a stuffed animal I’d literally cry tears of happiness
"don’t play the anxiety card"
YOU THINK THAT I USE ANXIETY AS AN EXCUSE?!
JUST BECAUSE I START TO PANIC WHEN YOU ASK ME TO DO CERTAIN THINGS DOESN’T MEAN I’M SIMPLY USING IT AS AN ESCAPE
MAYBE, JUST MAYBE, THE THINGS YOU ASK ME TO DO CAUSE ME ANXIETY, AND WHEN YOU CONFRONT ME ABOUT IT AND YELL AT ME FOR IT IT JUST MAKES IT WORSE
IT’S NOT A FUCKING CARD
INTELLIGENCE IS NOT MEASURED IN YOUR KNOWLEDGE OF MATH
Adapt to this
LET ME JUST POINT OUT THE VARIOUS FLAWS OF LOGIC HERE. FIRST OF ALL DARWINS POWER IS TO LITERALLY ADAPT TO ANYTHING IN THE EFFING UNIVERSE. HIS POWERS DEEMED IT TOO DANGEROUS TO FIGHT THE HULK AND TELEPORTED HIM TO ANOTHER COUNTRY. HE ONCE BECAME PURE COSMIC EFFING ENERGY AND SHORTLY AFTER REMATERIALIZED AS A HUMAN BEING TO PREVENT HIS DEATH. DARWIN IS LITERALLY INEFFINGVINCIBLE. AND YOU MEAN TO TELL ME THAT A PATHETIC BALL OF KINETIC ENERGY FROM SEBASTIAN SHAW MERKS HIM?!?!?! THEY OBVIOUSLY ARE OUT TO KILL THE BLACK MAN IN THE PLOT AND LITERALLY WROTE THIS SCENE WITH NO REGARDS TO DARWINS POWERS WHATSOEVER AND ITS FRUSTRATING THAT THEY WOULD GO OUT OF THEIR WAY TO KILL HIM OFF LIKE THAT
I’m saying. Even in sci fi we ain’t safe
in my headcanon darwin literally became a being of energy and ascended to another plain of existence so he doesn’t have to deal with anymore of this white nonsense
Even in Scifi? We not safe in real life.
thank you I’ve been saying this for the longest!!!!! He is a damn omega level mutant, meaning in the movie he would be a class 5! Dude even adapted into a God and became the God of Death! Dude was college educated in the comics and they made him a taxi driver…like Black folks weren’t educated in the 70’s. And they didn’t even acknowledge that he was an Afro Latino…his name is Armando Munoz, he’s one of the few Afro latino superheros and they did him so dirty.
A movie that’s a metaphor for prejudice/racism/etc did the black guy dirty.
Yep. This was some white nonsense for real
And literally 2 minutes before that, the long, lingering shot on Darwin with Shaw’s “live like slaves” line. *rolls eyes*
And they cut the after-credits scene where he was SUPPOSED to come back in his ultimate form.
It was complete bullshit.
Not to mention the only other Black person on the team became a villain.
That movie is such a goddamn mess
Haha, so fun fact: in X-factor the team runs into Darwin, and at first they are confused because he’s looks different then they remembered, his skin is lighter! They discuss this, and come to the conclusion that his power detected racism as a threat to his life and lightened his skin so that he’d pass as white.
When he joins the group and feels like he has a safer and more welcoming community his skin starts to darken again.
It’s nice when X-men and spinoffs remember that the mutants are supposed to be a metaphor.
