coming out to your parents
If you try for one second to tell me the X-Men isn’t an allegory for the gay rights movement, I will smack you. They weren’t even remotely subtle about this.
The mutants have always been an allegory for anyone that didn’t fit in to society. The folks who drew the comics made a point of that early on.
It’s not just the gay rights movement, its not just kids trying to “come out” to their parents. Its people being mistreated by the government, put away, forced to pretend to be “normal”, systematically oppressed, even killed for who they are because the powers that be cant control it. It’s an allegory for blacks, gays, the disabled (mentally and physically), women, and anyone really who isnt a white man at the top of the food chain.
This is why there are THREE groups in the x-men comics, the passing x-men who want integration, the activist and militant brotherhood who accepts everyone but them (the mutates, ie mutants who were made not born) and the Morlocks who accept everyone but just want left alone to survive.
Professor X gathers together those who look human and can save people to present a perfect image of what mutants can be - looking like a 1950’s kids’ book (whilst shooting lasers out of their eyes)
Magneto shelters those who might not be good people but can turn into giant gorillas for example, as long as you were born that way who cares what you look like or can do
and the morlocks - well they are literally the sewer mutants, the ones who didnt’ want to fight, or who couldn’t pass as human, or who just wanted to be left alone
it always broke my heart they left the Morlocks out of the movies, because the whole point was that neither the x-men or the brotherhood were ideal, and it included all of the mutants in the war, when there were those who for one reason or another just wanted to keep their heads down and survive…
and that was always, to me at least, the strongest part of the metaphor
okay so imagine an au where the potters live. harry dates oliver wood briefly. james hears of this and pulls harry aside. stares him in the eye with a deadly serious face
“he’s a Keeper”
You made an entire AU that would alter almost every facet of that series
For a pun
You’re a beautiful person.
"Are you serious right now, Dad?"
"No, I’m not serious. I’m Dad. He’s Sirius."
If you’re not going to comic con clap your hands.
If you live no where near it clap your hands.
if your favorite cast is showing and you’re dying ‘cause you’re not going.
then go ahead and cry and clap your hands.
Honestly can’t wait for the 50 shades movie to normalize the manipulation of lower-level female employees. Can’t wait for the new wave of “consent is sexy” banners on the cover of cosmo. Can’t wait for teen girls to think that a controlling relationship is romantic….
who is this brilliant man
His name is Jacque Fresco. He’s a futurist and social engineer. He lectures his views on sustainable cities, energy efficiency, natural-resource management, and the role of science in society, while being entirely self-taught.
He’s also the founder of the Venus Project, an organization that advocates a resource-based economy. The project combines Fresco’s versions of sustainable development, natural resource management, energy efficiency, and advanced automation in a global socioeconomic system based on social cooperation and scientific methodology.
As you can tell he’s a pretty badass dude.
