You’re Clint Barton. You’re an Avenger.
Nope, I’m Ultron, and I shrank all the candy.

❝Go in peace my daughter. And remember that, in a world of ordinary mortals, you are a Wonder Woman❞ - Queen Hippolyte (1975)
Kate Bishop a.k.a. Hawkeye is actually the greatest sharpshooter known to man. (Shut up, Barton.) She’s practically an avenger. This is what happens when she gets sick of the other Hawkeye’s drama and heads out to L.A. The dog went with her.
I wanted to draw something autumny and I also just really, really love the idea of MCU Sam with an inexplicable affinity for birds.
(Riley would have noticed eventually, would have ribbed Sam about the sand-coloured finches that seemed to congregate the moment Sam sat down anywhere. “What are you, Snow White? We’re in the middle of the desert, how are there always so many of them? Honestly, Wilson, do you just carry them around in your pack?" Sam would have laughed, shrugged, tossed them his last few sunflower seeds.)
men who hate “bitches” actually hate women but are saying it in a way that they think we can’t tell………..we can
There goes my school focus. BOOM. Off into ~FANTASYLAND~, the home of Spirkshex and disappointed hopes for my future and lots and lots of F’s and THIS FUCKING PICTURE.
I’m okay with this.
Then and now
But notice how this headline from the civil rights era is more sympathetic to the victims than most you’d see today.
There’s a reason for that! The white press was not sympathetic to victims, for the most part — and it certainly would not have used this language if it were — so my suspicion is that this is a special edition of one of the many black newspapers that were very prominent until the last 20 years.
Black newspapers were a crucial means of educating people about the injustices faced by black people, and about the civil rights movement. They frequently ran stories about black victims of lynchings and sexual violence, and helped to organize several national campaigns on behalf of black women who had been sexually assaulted by police and other white men.
The economic changes we’ve seen since the 1970s have seriously hurt the black press, like the rest of the newspaper industry. A lot of white social theorists like to talk about the decline of a vigorous non-government, non-corporate societal sector, and what it means for our democracy, but they overlook the fact that these declines especially damage oppressed & marginalized communities, who are worse hit by economic downturn and whose institutions are the first to be lost to economic predation. The importance for movements of the ability to spread relevant information, to provide a counter-voice — without the pitfalls of the internet — should not be understated.
I was wondering if that might be the case. Thanks for the info!
