“At the end of the day, the Metal Gear series is really just a biography of how an ambiguously gay Russian cowboy becomes a Chaos god to torment the most deranged family of soldiers ever because their dad didn’t take him to prom”—teddygoddamnroosevelt
“I want [female characters] to be allowed to be weak and strong and happy and sad – human, basically. The fallacy in Hollywood is that if you’re making a ‘feminist’ story, the woman kicks ass and wins. That’s not feminist, that’s macho. A movie about a weak, vulnerable woman can be feminist if it shows a real person that we can empathize with.”—Natalie Portman, laying down a truth bomb about female characters (via albinwonderland)
You know what I don’t quite fully understand? When parents don’t accept their kids no matter what. Like as in, sexuality, gender, defects, and etc. Why even bother having children if you are not mentally prepared to deal with the possibilities the future holds. No child should ever feel neglected or hide who they truly are, no parent should turn their back on them.
