    So I went on a bit of a rant on Twitter earlier.

    If you’re no longer making money at cons, either stop going or refocus. It’s not other peoples’ fault that your business model no longer caters to them.

    DEAR EMMA WATSON

    Where was MY right to decide what to do with my body? It wasn’t in the room where my parents paid a doctor to cut the skin off my penis when I was a mere minutes old!!

    I bet your clit and vulva are still intact.

    Tell me again how oppressed you are by this patriarchy?

    Dear thewhoviantheatregeek

    Please do not belittle female circumcision by comparing it to male circumcision.

    Male circumcision is not done to oppress men or destroy their sexuality but for either religious or health reasons. Removing the foreskin does not prevent sex, or damage the penis. You were not genetically mutilated.

    Female circumcision involves removing the clitoris, or the vulva, sometimes it involves cutting the inside of the vagina and sowing it shut so that it heals over. Sometimes all of the above. It is oppressive, it is always painful and often fatal, and is still practised in many countries around the world with the goal of oppressing women under extreme patriarchal regimes.

    Emma Watson may not suffer from those regimes directly in the way you’re referring to, but she spoke very frankly about how she has had a very privileged life. She is using that privilege to stand up for those who are not as fortunate. 

    Tell me again how you are helping by making it about you?

    (x) can you imagine what would have happened to those women if they had tried to stand up for themselves?

    and men seriously fucking ask in 2014 why women are not complimented when guys holler at us in the streets

    This is infinitely important

    There are a LOT of really great scenes in How to Train Your Dragon 2 but this is the one that had the most impact on me and FOR GOOD REASON:

    • It’s such a sweet and genuine song first of all.
    • It’s sung, at first, by this HUGE masculine viking who spent the better part of the first movie being super cold and distant, leaving his emotions at bay. Now he’s allowing himself to open up and express his feelings and that’s totally okay woah!!
    • Along with that his movements around Valka are slow and gentle, allowing her to either reciprocate or walk away. He never grabs her or tries to shove her right back into their relationship. He’s aware of how much time has passed, of her guilt, so homie’s playin it cool.
    • But yeah, ultimately SHE’S the one who agrees to the dance and picks up the pace and it’s SO GOOD to see both figures treating each other with so much love and respect.
    • Even better is that both parties are ADULTS, the mom and dad figures of the film series. Adults get written out or ignored so often in children’s movies, either by being dead throughout the entirety of the series OR by only showing up at key moments. Both Valka and Stoic are essential to the film, as is their relationship and Valka’s reason for leaving.
    • Did I mention how sweet and genuine the song is? Damn near every romance song in a kid’s film is built up to some schmalty love anthem but HTTYD2 takes a quieter, more human approach.

    This isn’t even touching on the little details Dreamworks’ adds to their facial expressions and their movements and gosh everything here works so wonderfully please watch How to Train Your Dragon 2

    This is one of my absolute favorite scenes, for everything listed above and more. Hiccup is just amazed and awed to see his parents together. This is probably a side of his father he’s rarely seen. I love it.

    The fact that the main romance of the film was between Stoic and Valka was just the highlight for me— I was so stoked that they chose to go that route instead of making Hiccup/Astrid the focus (Instead we got some really cute interactions that cemented that they’re a couple without being like HEY AUDIENCE, THEY’RE A COUPLE, REMEMBER??? and being hit over the head with unnecessary scenes or interactions).

    Basically HTTYD2 was a perfect example on how to do a romance in a film.
