Was anyone else a little bit disappointed that the kick ass Lady Counsel Member turned out to be Natasha? Still love Natasha, but for a few glorious seconds, it was awesome to see an older woman come out of nowhere to kick ass.
Oh hell yes. For one glorious moment this movie was going to be the utter best thing ever made. And then…. well it was still cool but such a disappointment we didn’t get unexpected kick ass over 40 woman.
Did we ever even find out what happened to the counsel member?
omfg I just remembered that one time I farted and my poodle just turned around and gave me the most judgmental look I have ever seen
cishet people be like NOOO U CANT USE THAT TERM TO DESCRIBE UR SEXUALITY/GENDER ITS MADE UP WORD!!! and then turn around and make up ridiculous terms like mancrush and guyliner and man-purse in order to keep their precious hetronormitive gender roles intact
If you encounter one of these sillies, ask them if they think Shakespeare was a talented writer. If they say yes (and I think most people these days would say yes, whether they actually like his writing aside) politely remind them that Shakespeare invented a lot of words. Like “tomorrow.” You know. That word that we use all the fucking time without a second thought.
If we (as an English-speaking academic culture, at least) generally regard Shakespeare as a brilliant, creative writer, and Shakespeare was able to be so brilliant in part because of his willingness to play with words and create them freely, why are we as a culture so opposed to create words that suit our purposes? That’s what language is for! To communicate what we need to communicate!
(The answer is because they’re being hypocrites. Uncreative, privileged, hypocrites. You could remind them of this too.)

Imagine Rhodey and Steve and Sam all hanging out and bonding over shared boot camp/military experiences, talking about asshole drill sergeants and sleeping on the ground and all of it. Deliberately sticking with the lighter topics and telling dumb military jokes.
and Tony sulking with DUM-E in the background because his boyfriend has new friends and he’s not part of the cool kids group anymore
