mainstream tumblr feminism may have many glaring faults but it has bred an army of teenage girls who understand the common ways that misogyny is reinforced in society and who know that they’re better off loving their fellow woman than fighting with her and that’s actually pretty damn revolutionary
Meryl Streep pulling weeds (via tarntino)
#fucking exactly#scorses ain’t SHIT#his vision is as narrow as the hole of a threading needle literally who gives a fuck#if being a cinephile means pretending to like scorsese and woody and tarantino and ten other basic white men directors#then like i’m so good not being that
the criticism of scorsese is absolutely true and valid but lmao honestly how dare you bring quentin tarantino into this by calling him “a basic white guy” and lumping him in with pedophile rapist woody allen… quentin has written better WOC than half of hollywood’s biggest directors right now. kill bill features 6 lead women (3 being WOC) all incredibly strong and complex, and death proof has two different sets of kickass women and WOC. two movies alone featuring about a dozen female characters. so what the hell are you even talking about. the book that jackie brown was based on featured a white female lead but quentin cast pam grier simply because she was the right actress for jackie, absolutely no hesitations because of her race. so go ahead and demand better women from scorsese but tarantino has been establishing a standard for filmmakers to write better female characters since the ’90s.
We are gathered here today because SOMEBODY *glares at coffin* couldn’t stay alive.
That’s totally cool. I’m all for helping out with clarification. (: It was never actually addressed and was very much glazed over with a whole “oh, but it was consensual at first” and “oh, you’re fine now Caroline” sort of awesomeness. Anyways, I’m gonna link you to this post because it breaks it down and is very straightforward (with gifs). After the whole thing, Caroline was compelled and didn’t remember any of it until she became a vampire. Then she went after Damon, shoved him down the hall and said “you suck”. :/
I am very glad I don’t watch this show anymore.
