Within a few years, Freud buckled under this heavy pressure and recanted his conclusions. In their place he proposed the “Oedipus complex,” which became the foundation of modern psychology… Freud used this construct to conclude that the episodes of abuse his clients had revealed to him had never taken place; they were simply fantasies of events the women had wished for… This construct started a hundred-year history in the mental health field of blaming victims for the abuse perpetrated on them and outright discrediting of women’s and children’s reports of mistreatment by men."

i don’t know how to deal with this
- If something passes the Bechdel Test: wow great okay
- If something does NOT pass the Bechdel Test: don't freak out - the test is inherently flawed and only takes into consideration a very select and narrow group of variables
- If something passes the Sexy Lamp Test: wow great okay
- If something does not pass the Sexy Lamp Test: freak out because that means that the story still would have made sense if that particular female character had been replaced by a sexy lamp and that's hella fuckin' sad
I’m trying to prove a point that there is a fan base for a solo Black Widow movie. Please reblog if you’d watch it.
I’d watch the shit out of it.
Of course I would.
Yep. Is be there for the midnight showings.
Okay, I can’t be coy about this anymore.
My home life is a nightmare and I need to get the fuck away from my father. If you can spare anything at all, please consider donating to my gofundme. Everything sent to it will be used to help me cover the cost of therapy, clothes for interviews, bras that actually fit, and moving away from my family and on to a healthier, happy life.
Thank you so, so much for anything you can give, blessed be.
