like tbh i feel like my problem with the “dark and gritty!!” trend in modern stories is this

there’s this idea in our culture that cynicism is realistic? that only children believe in happy endings, that people are ultimately selfish and greedy and seeing with clear eyes means seeing the world as an awful place

that idealism is— easy, i guess. butterflies and sunshine and love are easy things to have in your head.

but i’ve known since i was fifteen that idealism— faith in humanity— optimism— is the most difficult thing in the entire world.

i constantly struggle to have faith in humanity, because it’s really, really easy to lose it. it’s easy to look at the news and go “what were you expecting? of course humans behave this way.” it’s easy to see the world and go “ugh, there’s no hope there.” and the years when i believed that were easy. miserable— but easy.

it is hard work to see the good in people. it is hard work to hope. it is hard work to keep faith and love and joy and appreciation for beauty in my daily life.

and when moviemakers and tv producers and writers go “omg!!! all characters are selfish and act poorly and don’t love each other, nothing ever happens that is happy or good, that’s so much more realistic, that’s so much more adult”

no, it’s not

it’s childish.

it’s the most childish thing i can imagine.

I’ve been watching this guy’s livestreams for a few days now. He’s super positive and really nice to all his viewers, answering everything he can. Also considering his abilities he is really good at Diablo III and WoW. Like the fact that I could have been playing WoW with people like him and getting my ass handed to me by them is part of the reason I appreciate video games as a form of therapy.

"I’m really feeling good about myself!"
This makes me SO happy. Amazing!

We so wanted to avoid iPod jokes but we wanted Cap to adjust to the new world, so it was about emotions, it was about ethics, it was about morality. It’s “How far have we come since you went into the ice?” not “How short have the skirts become?”

Stephen McFeely, one of the screen writers for Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Bless you, Sir.

and of mcu fandom know how many fics I’ve read where Steve suffers from culture shock in the form of ipods, computers, and fucking toasters? To many.  

What bothers me about it is that it takes what Steve is going through and turns him into the punchline instead of like what we saw in Cap2 where the moment is funny, but not at the expense of Steve’s feelings.  So you’re laughing with Steve, not at Steve.

casual-isms:

Casual racism is calling a black student “loud”, “obnoxious”, and “troublemaker” and a white student who acts a similar way in class “silly”, “funny”, and “class clown”.

Casual sexism is calling a cis female student “loud”, “obnoxious” and “bitchy” and a cis male student “social”, “funny”, and “someone who participates in an engaging way”.
