My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.

And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie.

stuffertystuffstuff:

"River Song, Amy Pond and Clara Oswald are exactly the same sexy, sassy female character Moffat loves."

I think you mean

"River Song, Amy Pond and Clara Oswald -despite having vastly different story arcs, personalities, jobs, hobbies, lifestyles, relationships and personal philosophies- are all represented as being body positive. We have very little representation in the media of women who think they are attractive, and the ones who do are more often than not villains and antagonists. Therefore I have chosen to amplify that single shared trait River, Amy and Clara have and reduce all their other characteristics, so I can make them into the perfect strawmen for my argument that Moffat can’t write women. In reality it proves I have little to no textual analysation skills, and can’t overcome my societal programming in regards to the dominant discourse of women who hate their appearance are not only good and kind, but secretly beautiful all along, while women who actually like their appearance must be shallow and self absorbed and therefore not worthy of consideration as legitimate individuals in their own right."

I’m not saying that Puffin UK stole their new minimalist Doctor Who novella covers from me…I’m just saying, they’re awfully familiar.

"real men dont rape" actually, real men do rape. they do. men rape. it isn’t done by ~fake mythical special brand of evil~ men, it’s done by real men, men who may seem nice, men who you think you can trust, men you know, men who you’re close to. real men do rape. that’s the problem
