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.
|normal people:||aw man this reminds me of my ex sigh|
|me:||AW MAN THIS REMINDS ME OF MY OTP SHOOT ME IN THE FACE|
Bruh it makes me mad cuz I can’t walk upstairs without tripping
why does this make me feel mad
Because he’s considered powerful, and she’s considered a whore.
I’m pretty sure if anybody saw a woman doing that the first thing they would think wouldn’t be “wow what a whore” jesus christ.
i think it says alot about the commenter on how they view people as aopposed to how people actully veiw feats of acrobatics.
most people would see the girl on the poll and think “wo oh my god thats incredibly sexy, as well as impressive. i cant do that” same goes for the guy.
this is because feats of phisical strength, such as the hannibal leg lifts(what you see here) are astounding to everybody regardless of who does them.
there are definatley people who think that girl is a whore. there are also people who think that guy is a gross masculinistic musclehead who is probably overly egotistical.
this post is a prime example of how people, especially the people on tumblr, will specifically cherry pick tropes to victimize themselves instead of actually considering all the societal implications invilolved.
id also like to point out that strippers, especially pros like the one you see here, usually make upwards of 70k a year. proffesionals who teach pole dancing classes like this can make over 100k yearly.
i dont think they give a fuck what society thinks of them and neither should you.
