I need feminism because most men’s restrooms still aren’t equipped with baby changing stations. As someone who was married to a man who had sole custody of his young son, I’m hyperaware that feminism means EQUALITY, not female superiority. Feminism should and does support a man’s right to be as much of a parent to his child(ren) as any mother is allowed/expected to be.
This is a constant problem for Mr. Tea and myself. We’ve got twins, so even though I can change one kid on the change table in the ladies’ room, he’s left standing sort of awkwardly in the lobby with a messy child while I change one, come back, and get the other.
Nobody’s suggesting that men aren’t parents, so the lack of change tables goes well beyond ‘gender role reinforcing’ and straight into ‘ridiculous’.
ok, idk how easy this is to read but since everyone is discussing dates, i went to the movie to check. this is steve’s rejection from the beginning, his birthday is in the upper right corner and there’s ANOTHEr date in the lower left which I think is supposed to be a today’s date kind of thing and it looks to be June 14 1943
so there we go, steve enlists in mid 1943
How interesting that you would mention this, because I’ve recently been thinking he didn’t enlist. His serial number, which he’s heard muttering when Steve comes to rescue him, starts “32557.”
According to this fabulous WWII serial number generator, an enlisted man from New York should have a serial number starting with the numbers “12.”
A New York man with a serial number starting with “32”? Drafted. What we may be dealing with here is a Bucky who didn’t choose to go to war but was instead compelled to do so versus a Steve who is desperate to get in. I think it opens up a lot of different and interesting storylines for the two of them.
There’s been some great meta/discussion about this in the last couple days, which I think is great.
Makes you wonder if Bucky got the draft, and then, knowing how Steve felt about things, told his best buddy he was “enlisting.” Because how do you face this skinny, brave idiot who just won’t stop trying to volunteer that you wouldn’t be going if you didn’t have to?
Belle is angry. She’s as angry as we’ve always thought she should be but we never got to see on screen. This is not recent. She’s been feeling this way all along.
And yet when Rumplestiltskin wants to take revenge on her behalf he doesn’t let him. It makes sense that Belle can let this out now because Rumple isn’t around to hear it. Because Belle knows that if Rumple knew her real feelings on Regina that he’d do much worse than the wraith.
Because no matter how hurt Belle is, she isn’t going to use Rumplestiltskin in that way. She won’t ask him to get his hands dirty on her behalf. And she’ll use her words to make herself known because she isn’t going to hurt Regina, even if she deserves it.
And that’s why Belle should sit on the Iron Throne of Storybrooke. She should be Queen Mayor Warrior Bookworm because she’s won’t harm someone else (the way Regina will hurt people who hurt her) but she doesn’t just ignore their misdeeds like Snow.
Yeah. If anyone has to have ultimate power in that town better it be Belle.
BELLE FOR MAYOR
