Celebrating the uneventful 19th year of an American teenager's life
University of Minnesota-TC // Chemical Engineering // Class of 2015
Every day for a year I will post my own personal (feminist) confessions.
Welcoming submissions, because I may run out during the year...
I love that at first she thinks it’s misogynistic, and isn’t afraid to call him on it, but then we see him do what we almost never see a male superhero do : He admits he’s scared.
He’s not trying to belittle her, he’s not trying to tell her or even the kids that they’re not strong,
He’s trying to protect what he loves most because he’s terrified of losing them. The big, giant robot ripping apart BUILDINGS doesn’t scare him at all compared to losing what he loves.
I love this movie for so many reasons, but this scene is one of the bigger ones. A hero movie where the males are allowed to be emotional without appearing weak? A hero movie where females are allowed to be strong without being callous or woefully 2D? A hero movie where children are allowed to explore their potential instead of being shitty sidekicks?
Fangirl Challenge: [5/5] Movies » 10 Things I Hate About You ”I hate the way you talk to me, and the way you cut your hair. I hate the way you drive my car. I hate it when you stare. I hate your big dumb combat boots, and the way you read my mind. I hate you so much it makes me sick; it even makes me rhyme. I hate the way you’re always right. I hate it when you lie. I hate it when you make me laugh, even worse when you make me cry. I hate it when you’re not around, and the fact that you didn’t call. But mostly I hate the way I don’t hate you. Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all..”

This parody made by University of Auckland students Zoe Ellwood, Olivia Lubbock and Adelaide Dunn has been removed from YouTube, but not before it became an online hit. The provocative clip has sparked debate. What do you think of the parody?
