Jason Jones talks to a Russian woman protesting against Russia’s anti-gay laws.
I love this quote. I love this movie.
This scene impressed me so much when I first saw it. It still fills me with… idk something. I love it.
Still one of my favorite lines from a movie ever.
I am this nervous around every person who enters the elevator with me. It doesn’t matter what your ethnicity and race is. I don’t trust anyone with my life. Does this make me a bad person?
No, so am I. I am also this nervous around people who are walking behind me, people whom I pass on the street, or people who wait at the bus stop with me.
I get what the gifset is trying to say: that black men are not going to savagely attack you, and I get that, but as a woman I have literally grown up with horror stories about being alone with a man.
It’s today’s society that dictates that a woman should be afraid of being alone with a man. That’s any man, I’m pretty sure the woman’s reaction in the gif set would be the same if a white man had stepped into the lift instead.
I was thinking the same thing.
It’s not because he is black.
It’s because he is a man and I am alone.
I was raised to fear the uncontrollable lustful men and try to never be alone with them. That was my responsibility and my duty as a woman.
I don’t cluth my purse to me because I might get robbed, but because the purse is another layer of imaginary protection between him and me.
THIS. I don’t grab my purse because they’re not white (in fact, white guys, especially of the white dudebro type make me more nervous, because they are more likely to be entitled douchebags who don’t respect consent) - I do it because they’re MALE. Because if something happens, or he tries something, I will be blamed.
Don’t blame racism for the effects of rape culture.
I also want to say that the “stupid white bitch” line does not endear me to the speaker either. I do not care what color your skin is, calling someone a “stupid bitch” because they are nervous in your presence is not going to make a case in your favor. It shows a blatant lack of respect that relates back to everything that’s already been said. Not to mention that his reaction to someone showing fear is a desire to commit violence against them. Because really, that’s a great way to show that you’re not dangerous. Seriously. 8I
Also, it’s fucking polite to make room for other people on the elevator, if I’m stepping to the side, it’s because it’s a small, enclosed space and you’d complain if I was standing the middle and taking up space.
when shots are fired but you have a good comeback
did he just airbend?
His teammate suddenly collapses in pure awe
This is fan fucking tastic okay
The first words that are read by seekers of enlightenment in the secret, gong-banging, yeti-haunted valleys near the hub of the world, are when they look into /The Life of Wen the Eternally Surprised/.
The first question they ask is: ‘Why was he eternally surprised?’
And they are told: ‘Wen considered the nature of time and understood that the universe is, instant by instant, recreated anew. Therefore, he understood, there is in truth no past, only a memory of the past. Blink your eyes, and the world you see next did not exist when you closed them. Therefore, he said, the only appropriate state of mind is surprise. The only appropriate state of the heart is joy. The sky you see now, you have never seen before. The perfect moment is now. Be glad of it.’

I want to know exactly what made Vole the big angry douche he is today
I mean before he got kicked out or even tried to kill the boys, maybe way back when he was human what makes a person that pissed off all the time
WAIT, HOLD UP, BECAUSE I’M STUPID This means Gil probably got him out of the time bubble too doesn’t it
honestly, I don’t know. Kaja just said that we’d get more of the Bang/Vole thing in the future. When that might be, who can say?
People always forget that Wolverine is Canadian.
one day, the head of… Canadian SHIELD, or something, is going to show up at Wolverine’s door, say “your country needs you”, and that might be enough to actually get him to help
Have Captain Canada show up with a 12-pack of good Canadian beer and then he’ll be interested
