White feminists calling out white feminists by stealing the words of black feminists and claiming them as their own. Classic. 10/10.

I think the best thing for my white brethen to do right now is treat black unrest as if you’re dealing with a grieving mother. Let her grieve, and possibly assist her. But don’t try and control how she grieves or steer her into a direction which makes you comfortable. Then talk to your friends about why she’s grieving and what you can do to stop pouring salt into the wound. The problem lies in the reality that the way most white people treat black unrest is by saying, ‘Look, I’m sorry I killed your son. He had it coming. But i apologized yesterday, so get over it. I’m trying to read and your crying is kind of annoying.’
me: why did you just reblog that from them
me: I literally just reblogged that
me: you're following both of us so why'd you reblog it from them and not me
me: is it because you don't like me
me: is it because I'm fat
Every single Marvel Studios movie has centered around a presumably straight, white, male protagonist, even if white women (mostly love interests) and men of color (support roles) have played roles in the film. The franchise is a box office juggernaut and has a ton of movies on this list, but we’ve gotten two to three movies about each of the men on the Avengers and there’s yet to be a film about Black Widow.
Both of Marvel’s ensemble films—The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy—trimmed down the superhero teams for their film adaptations, and the women characters, save for one, were the first to be cut. Most moviegoers will never know that women of color and LGBTQ characters were cut from Guardians of the Galaxy, but audiences will get to relate to the talking raccoon and the talking tree.
