Solid D for effort
I think they just looked at them and said “They both have eyes”
if a girl ignores you she’s either hella pissed or hella sad and whatever it is you better apologize if you don’t wanna be ignored for the next 28 years
i need to stop imagining scenarios in my head that have a -2% chance of actually happening it’s becoming a problem
While I can understand the OPs frustrations with having such a harsh accusation being made about their ship, I also see the merit (or foregone conclusion) to the idea that Captain Swan or Hook can promote rape culture. The issue lies in the fact that it is all up to interpretation. However, instead of blind accusations, I am going to choose to educate. I will provide the defintion of ‘rape culture’ and then place it alongside Captain Hook/Captain Swan scenes. Again, this is not prove that rape culture is occurring, merely showing how it can be interpreted as such.
From: Transforming Rape Culture by Emilie Buchwald
A rape culture is a complex of beliefs that encourages male sexual aggression and supports violence against women. It is a society where violence is seen as sexy and sexuality as violent. In a rape culture, women perceive a continuum of threatened violence that ranges from sexual remarks to sexual touching to rape itself. A rape culture condones physical and emotional terrorism against women as the norm.
In a rape culture both men and women assume that sexual violence is a fact of life, inevitable as death or taxes. This violence, however, is neither biologically nor divinely ordained. Much of what we accept as inevitable is in fact the expression of values and attitudes that can change.

Remember, Emma thought Hook was a stranger in this scene. This is a man - who kissed her without her wanting him to - telling Emma drink a strange liquid without any knowledge of what’s inside it. We are taught, as women, not to take drinks from strange men because of what might have been put in them. I understand Hook would never give Emma date rape drugs, but the perception of this scene within its context can be disturbing.
Much of what we accept as inevitable is in fact the expression of values and attitudes that can change.
While people have made a case for Hook’s ‘redemption arc’ by saying he is not the man he used to be, I personally see his “change” is for less than honorable reasons.
It comes from what can be interpreted as over possessive behavior and not fierce loyalty to the woman he loves.
So, is it stupid or ignorant to think that the idea of rape culture is depicted? No. Do I think the phrase has the capacity to be thrown around by ignorant people? Yes. On the other hand, ignoring it is not the answer. This is a problem, and it is not being addressed.
best fanfic tropes:
- 'i guess we'll have to share the bed'
- 'maybe we should pretend to date'
- 'oh no….look like we trapped in this closet together….'
- 'my room mate is kind of hot?????'
- I can’t go alone to my ex’s wedding
- Omg our car broke down in a snowstorm
- Hot single dad hires broke babysitter
Guh, flawless. Non-Westernised interpretations of the steampunk genre FTW.
I’ve been REALLY wanting to see an Indian take on Steampunk so I am so pleased you have no idea
like 98% of my problems would be solved if i stopped overthinking things and calmed the fuck down and stopped being such a panicky, anxious little shit
whenever you feel sad, remember
you are all the main characters of your own stories
and main characters get happy endings
“every time you post something online the entire world sees it”
yeah then explain to me why my post doesn’t have more notes
"no" is too serious
"nope" is too casual
"nah" is just right
"Did you kill this man?" "Nah"
okay but imagine Thor and Jane being all domestic, living together or at least to some extent playing house, and imagine them getting into huge fights where things get heated and Jane starts to use her knowledge of mythology for some sick burns.
"of course, OF COURSE i can’t talk sense with a man who tRIED TO DRINK AN OCEAN”
"THAT WAS ONE TIME"
there are two types of cute
"aw how adorable" cute
"aw i want to make out with you holy shit" cute
and my goal is to be both of them
and then theres “aw i want to slam you against a wall and fuck you roughly” cute and i want to be that too
Why is it the person that makes me the happiest also makes me the saddest?
