when we talk about women in refrigerators it’s not always something super literal
i don’t imagine in writers room across the globe they’re all sitting there like “well we’re out of ideas let’s fridge another one” (but maybe they do i have no idea)
but what’s happening consciously or unconsciously writers are deciding that women are more valuable dead then alive. this goes way back. this is poe saying there’s nothing more poetic than the death of a beautiful woman. this is a dozen pre raphaelite paintings of ophelia drowning because they found her suffering erotic. this is the first reaction to laura palmer’s body being found being, “she was so beautiful.”
fuck this. fuck this.
i’m sick of writers getting passes. fuck this. our strong women are taken from us. we don’t get survivors. we don’t get triumph. women get chopped into artistic little pieces for the male heroes to choke own because we’re more valuable this way. because this way you don’t have to worry about our hopes and fears and opinions because we’re dead and dead women tell no tales. they can’t speak out against injustice because men took their tongues. and they think it’s beautiful. death, the ultimate passivity, the ultimate waiting room, is the most beautiful thing of all. there’s nothing more poetic than the death of a beautiful woman.
women matter. they matter when they are living. not listening to women while they’re still breathing is a failure and should not be regarded as anything else. it is a failure with very serious effects
Favourite Audrey Ramirez Quotes
Audrey doesn’t get NEARLY enough love. It’s Edwardian period, yet she’s a genius Hispanic engineer who wears overalls, has adorably little meaty arms, doesn’t take any crap from boys, runs a mechanic business with her father and her sister is a prize fighter.
Cool Disney female characters don’t have to be princesses, folks.
Good morning from Pamyu
Uh oh I just did the opening quests for the twilight highlands and Im mad
I just read this and, well, basically YES.
Was I the only one who was totally blindsided by the “development” of Zaela’s character in Mists? I mean, yes, she did have that line about “orcs of pure blood” but I kind of assumed she meant “as opposed to the fel-tainted fucker currently lording it over us”, especially since
1) she has no problem with non-orcish PCs, even though for all we know it might well be the first time she even SEES a blood elf or a Forsaken.
2) the first time she expresses interest in Garrosh, it’s in the context of “he must be an extraordinary leader to have brought so many different people under his banner”.
yeah, I’d always parsed that pure blood line as a FUCK YOU MOR’GHOR above anything else. pure as in sans fel cooties.
