|Female character:||I love him!|
|Audience:||Ugh, she's so annoying. All she does is think about him. She's such a weak character/mary sue/dependent/needy chick. I hope they get rid of her.|
|Female character:||I hate him!|
|Audience:||Wow, she's so heartless. After all he's done for her. She's such a bitch/diva/ice queen. I hope they get rid of her.|
ok so when sarah is pretending to be other clones, she’s playing them the way she perceives them.
and when she plays cosima, she somehow seems 80x nerdier than cosima actually is
thus, in sarah manning’s mind, cosima niehaus is a “fuckin geek ass nerd”
Simmons + protecting Skye
heteronormativity is genderbending main characters just to permit non-platonic interactions between the characters.
i’m looking at you, elementary.
that’s really cute how you dismiss the importance of replacing a white male literary icon with a woman of color and ignore how much pride people have in joan to say she only exists to bang someone she hasn’t kissed, come close to kissing, or come close to even wanting to kiss in nearly 2 entire seasons

It’s almost time for Season 2 Orphan Black, so before that happens relive the glory that was Season 1 with our Top 20 ‘Holy crap, this show owns Rophy’ moments!
I AM JUST SO HAPPY. ORPHAN BLACK IS ON ROPHYDOES. THIS IS A HAPPY DAY.
BEST EVER = Sophy says: Oh god now I’m imagining Clonemas Lunch. Helena keeps trying to climb to the top of the tree only it’s too flimsy and Alison spent sixteen hours hand-painting that goddamn angel and is swatting at her with a spatula.
Sarah and Cosima are drinking quietly.
THAT’S MY STAN. RIGHT THERE.
The world has joy in it. When you find a place that allows you to experience that joy, when you find people that make you feel safe and loved like you belong, you don’t walk from it. You fight for it.
It’s easy to forget that, isn’t it?
Hand jobs and blow jobs are called jobs because they’re tedious and dicks are gross. Going down on a girl is called eating out because it’s a privilege.
Male privilege is oversexualizing a normal part of a woman’s body to the point where she is punished for wearing a pair of shorts at school. They are legs and they get me where I need to go. I don’t “display” them for your enjoyment, I just made a mistake by assuming that partially exposing an appropriate part of my body on an 80 degree day wouldn’t land me in detention.
WHOSOEVER HOLDS THIS HAMMER, IF SHE BE WORTHY, SHALL POSSESS THE POWER OF THOR.
ACTUAL GODDESS NATASHA ROMANOV
I always knew she was one :D
As is so often true of comics, a lot of the awesome is in the details. Natasha can’t move the Hammer when she first reaches it. What makes her worthy at the end when she apparently wasn’t worthy just seconds before? Look at panels 2-3 again. Natasha’s got that big ogre right on top of her with his club already going back to strike … and instead of shooting it to save herself, she uses her last shot to bring down the flying reptile that’s chasing that fleeing shuttle. That act of self-sacrifice in the face of certain death is what made her worthy.
Okay. Here’s what it means: in 2013, the Supreme Court ruled that all “naturally occurring” human genes cannot be patented, leaving room for ”unnatural,” or modified, genetic material to be patented. In other words, the clones’ genes have been modified; therefore, the patent Cosima found holds, legally. DYAD really does own their biology.
