Damn it, I have far to many feels about my Jedi Knight. I think I have a book’s worth of headcanon about what happens to her after the Emperor’s Fortress and especially after the end onf her storyline.
Especially with the Jedi Council being basically a big bag of dicks in between.
what collabs happened? i only know about the hyorin-ailee one.
Girl’s Day + a few boygroup members in drag, After School + Kahi, miss A covered Sistar and vice versa, same with Gain and Sunmi who covered each other’s song, B1A4 covered H.O.T., Girl’s Day covered S.E.S., Secret covered Fin.K.L.,…
Basically perfection all around. Here’s a list with links to all performances:
The problem that needs to be fixed is not kick all the girls out of YA, it’s teach boys that stories featuring female protagonists or written by female authors also apply to them. Boys fall in love. Boys want to be important. Boys have hopes and fears and dreams and ambitions. What boys also have is a sexist society in which they are belittled for “liking girl stuff.” Male is neutral, female is specific.
I heard someone mention that Sarah Rees Brennan’s THE DEMON’S LEXICON would be great for boys, but they’d never read it with that cover. Friends, then the problem is NOT with the book. It’s with the society that’s raising that boy. It’s with the community who inculcated that boy with the idea that he can’t read a book with an attractive guy on the cover.
Here’s how we solve the OMG SO MANY GIRLS IN YA problem: quit treating women like secondary appendages. Quit treating women’s art like it’s a niche, novelty creation only for girls. Quit teaching boys to fear the feminine, quit insisting that it’s a hardship for men to have to relate to anything that doesn’t specifically cater to them.
Because if I can watch Raiders of the Lost Ark and want to grow up to be an archaeologist, there’s no reason at all that a boy shouldn’t be able to read THE DEMON’S LEXICON with its cover on. My friends, sexism doesn’t just hurt women, and our young men’s abysmal rate of attraction to literacy is the proof of it.
If you want to fix the male literary crisis, here’s your solution:
So we all probably heard about Scarlett Johansson’ s pregnancy and I just want to say that I think we should all be happy for her and not complain about how it “ruins Marvel ‘s cinematic plans”. I’m sure everything will turn out fine and Marvel can easily film around that or push back the release date of AoU. Either way, I don’t think it’s fair to say bad things about her.
jfc if you think it’s cool or okay to attack scarjo for this or to prioritize someone’s real life/family over your perception of how this is going to effect superhero movies (which is basically not at all unless joss “destroyed cordelia’s character to spite a pregnant actress” whedon does his thing, in which case, let’s lay the blame at the right feet y’all) then go ahead and unfollow me i ain’t about that life
I DON’T TRUST JOSS TO NOT MAKE A FUCKING ISSUE OUT OF THIS.
but gfdi can we not shame women for starting families?
when men dress up as women or white people wear hijabs or darken their skin in order to “see how hard it is,” they’re simply admitting that they believe those members of those groups are untrustworthy to the point that they can’t honestly relay the reality of their own experiences.
If you are an adult on the receiving end of sexual attention from a minor, the only appropriate response is a firm, non-negotiable “no.” Not an “I would, but the darn law…” not, “maybe when you’re eighteen,” a “no.” It is your job as the adult to be responsible, and to not abuse the power differential between you. What the minor wants is irrelevant to your obligations. The only appropriate response is “no.”
