My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.

And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie.

I never thought about it like this before, not in conscious terms, but yeah, I’ve noticed this, too. This is really crappy!

“Well, those guys’ tail lights zigzagging all over the road - figured he had to be Asian, driving like that.”

Sorry, nobody down here but the FBI’s most unwanted.

                   

The movie is about…as he struggles to find an identity in the modern world, his old life is slipping away - is hanging on by a thread. Peggy doesn’t remember him… and she’ll be dead soon. She’s the last remnant of his past. And Sam happens to find his way into his life, so now he’s slowly meeting a new friend, he’s gaining a trust with Widow…so the movie is about a journey for him as he finds new elements in the modern world to emotionally attach himself to. The cruel twist is that, the Winter Soldier shows up…and it’s like the past punching him in the face.” — Joe Russo [x]

UM GUYS

Walking Dead’ Character Daryl Dixon May Be Gay, Creator Hints

DO YOU UNDERSTAND HOW IMPORTANT THIS IS

THIS IS SO IMPORTANT

Not important. Lame. I am gay and this pisses me off.

It is important because of representation. It is important because it crushes stereotypes.

And, most crucially, it is important because this would be - finally - a character for whom their sexuality is just a minor part of their character, and doesn’t minimize the fact that they are a fully-developed multidimensional human being.

I am gay and i think this is pretty fucking badass for all the reasons stated above. :D Beautifully said. 

Or he could be Aesexual or bisexual which would be equally as important
