"I’m always trying to figure out what to say about this god damn song. Part of me wants to say look, it’s about revenge, but as soon as I say that… no, that’s not quite it. Part of me wants to say it’s about the satisfaction of not needing revenge… and i say no, that’s some new age stuff. I think it’s a song about the moment in your quest for revenge when you learn to embrace the futility of it. The moment where you know the thing you want is ridiculous and pompous and a terrible thing to want anyway. The direction in which you’re headed is not the direction you want to go, yet you’re going to head that way a while longer cause that’s just the kind of person you are."

BOYCOTTING AGENT CARTER: A HOW-TO

peggylives:

Step one: Don’t.

People who are saying they’re going to boycott Agent Carter because of the prevalence of white dudes in casting need to sit down and really think about what the fuck that will accomplish.

Mainly, getting a female-lead show canned.

How about instead of that you get in touch with Marvel through any and all available media outlets and express your interest (politely) in seeing more diversity in the cast?

Or you know, you could boycott any of the half-dozen white-male-lead films coming out and make sure you express that it’s because of the lack of diversity there. 

Being frustrated is fine, understandable, and can be important - so long as that frustration is channeled in a productive way. You can support this show while making your voice and preferences heard. It’s closer to a step in the right direction than Ant-Man or Iron Man 934234 or Captain America: The Ladies Don’t Speak To Each Other (also they’re all white) or Thor: The Female Plot Device.

Be realistic, be active, and be supportive. Show Marvel what you love.

Tuesday August 26th, the Belgian feminist activist group Lilith’S took Liège airport by storm to condemn the airport authorities’ role in supplying arms to Israel. Under a banner bearing the slogan “HOW MANY TONS OF WEAPONS FOR SO MANY LITERS OF BLOOD ? “, the activists spilled a hundred liters of fake blood, creating a red pool to symbolize the slaughter committed by Israel in Palestine.

See like i can’t help but wonder who’s going to have to clean all that up tho

Like is Israel going to clean that up?

Or is it going to be some underpaid woman with a shit-ton of other stuff on her plate to deal with?

Hmm.

See and that kind of stuff is also how you get your protest shut down with criminal charges. Vandalism is just giving the business an excuse to call law enforcement. Like they easily could have just hung the banner and scattered themselves on the ground playing dead. Which would have been a) not a pain in the janitor’s ass b) probably been more visually impactful overall and c) been a much greater obstruction to the flow of business in the airport- ie more directly affecting the people they’re protesting rather than their underpaid worker bees.
