Hot takes about everything (*except* pol) 

This is a thread titled “Hills that I will die on.” Filled with hot takes that I can’t be the only one to have. Surely.

Everyone's making Best of the Decade lists, so I decided to do my own too.

Take a look, then come back and tell me what an idiot I am for missing that one movie.

Also bite me, Logan's in my Top 10. I only cried three times watching films this decade, and that was one of them.

Man, arguing with my dad can be a ride.

My dad: Fox News is my favourite news channel.

Also my dad: All cops are bastards.

Good morning from the West coast fedi.

If you’re a pop head, you should check out Dagny.

I know we were speaking a little earlier today about some of the things short people (specifically short men) have to put up with, I want to add to that many workplaces or safety features aren't suitable for short people at all, and this makes them dangerous

humble request 

Send me photos of trains you've travelled or you're about to travel with. Intercity, light rail and metro, old trains and new ones, those you took once or those you ride on a daily basis, show them to me. I fucking love trains & they make me happy. Choo-choo. ♡

*Lying in bed. It’s 3am*

Brain: Hey, want to think about that cringey thing you did today?

Me: But... I didn’t do anything cringey today.

Brain: Oh? Okay, what if you did something cringey in this *totally fictional situation*?

Me: 😬

body image representation 

I don't need to rant about the importance of representation because this is the fedi and you're all aware of its importance.

Just once, I'd like to see a short character be the superhero. Be the romantic protagonist. Be desired without having to prove themselves against someone who is clearly taller and more attractive. To not be the but of a joke (looking at you, Kevin Hart).

Short men are kings with no caveats.

I just wish the media saw that.

Relationship movies are a whole other beast.

For films depicting straight couples, the man is *always * taller than the woman. The only exception in living memory, for me, is The Hunger Games.

As far as Hollywood is concerned, if you're a short man, you're not attractive.

James Corden made a comment similar to this one, about plus sized men: in Hollywood, fat = funny. Plus sized men apparently never get to be seen as romantic.

Likewise: short men.

body image representation 

For example, many comic book fans are aware that Wolverine is 5'4" in the comic books. His actor, Hugh Jackman, is 6'.

I'm not ripping on Jackman (Logan is in my all time favourites) but you can tell no one gave a shit about short representation when that casting was made.

I'm not asking for the world here. The "if this is a universe where there's X, there can be Y" is lazy if not applied correctly. And so, if there's a short superhero, have them face reasonable limits.

Fighting a Chris Evans-sized guy? Have them struggle to succeed because their height is a disadvantage. Or have them act resourceful. Or give them a power that compliments their situation.

And no, I'm not just talking about being the tech guy ffs.
