THE ONE IN THE WHITE TOWEL THOUGH
Louis Le Breton was a French painter who specialised in marine paintings. He executed illustrations of occult demons, working from engravings by M. Jarrault, for the 1863 edition of “Dictionnaire Infernal” by Collin de Plancy.
I wonder how feminists will react to this
Probably ignore it then go back to making male tears mugs and gifs
Actually this is a very common idea among feminists
It’s something feminists have been talking about for years it’s called toxic masculinity and it’s one of the common threads among the topic of ‘Patriarchy hurts men too’. If fact the first time I read about toxic masculinity was on a feminist blog.
If you actually read things feminists talk about instead of straw manning them you might know this but OH WELL
“the first time I read about toxic masculinity was on a feminist blog”
yes, and let me add that STILL the only times i’ve ever seen toxic masculinity mentioned have been in the context of feminism: feminist’s blogs, women’s studies textbooks, etc.
you’d think MRAs would care more about this topic and campaign to end toxic masculinity, as well as fiercely advocate on behalf of boys and men who don’t conform to masculinity… but i’ve never personally seen that.
instead i have seen many of them claim that the reason boys and men are (according to them) “less masculine nowadays” is because of feminism. so they enforce standards of masculinity as an attempt to counteract what they perceive to be the effects of feminism.
This is one of the thing that makes me so angry about the MRAs. Because I think a Men’s Rights Activist group could be useful! Talk about how in disallowing men to express so-called ‘feminine’ ways of expression, we are hurting men, driving the suicide rate up. Talk about why there are so few stay-at-home dads. Campaign for more men to join feminist marches and educate them about consent and rape.
But no. The MRAs only care about keeping things status quo, because how dare we try and get some toys for us. They only care about throwing tiny tantrums, instead of actually, y’know, investigating what feminism actually is and what it’s goals actually are.
(Sidenote: I’ve seen my mum cry plenty of times: movies, at funerals, when I’ve had bad seizures, y’know, stuff like that. I have seen my dad cry once. In twenty-five years, I have seen him cry once. That is not healthy.)

I remember the strange panic attack before I went on to give this speech: the conviction that I wouldn’t be able to read what I’d written, or speak in articulate sentences. I wound up talking (in my head at least I was talking) in a really slow and measured way, because I was not certain any of it would make sense, or that I’d be able to get through it.
Which I mention only because I get lots of messages in Tumblr asks, asking how I got to be so good at this, or how people can do things if they are scared or stressed or things are too hard. And the only answer I really have is, you do it anyway. But maybe you breathe and do it a bit slower than normally.

It’s been some time since we reblogged some resource on historical armor, so here! Have fun :)
Looks interesting … .
Steve Rogers did, in fact, realize that something was off when he saw the outline of the woman’s odd bra (a push-up bra, he would later learn), but being an officer and a gentleman, he said that it was the game that gave the future away.
No, see, this scene is just amazing. The costume department deserves so many kudos for this, it’s unreal, especially given the fact that they pulled off Peggy pretty much flawlessly.
1) Her hair is completely wrong for the 40’s. No professional/working woman would have her hair loose like that. Since they’re trying to pass this off as a military hospital, Steve would know that she would at least have her hair carefully pulled back, if maybe not in the elaborate coiffures that would have been popular.
2) Her tie? Too wide, too long. That’s a man’s tie, not a woman’s. They did, however, get the knot correct as far as I can see - that looks like a Windsor.
3) That. Bra. There is so much clashing between that bra and what Steve would expect (remember, he worked with a bunch of women for a long time) that it has to be intentional. She’s wearing a foam cup, which would have been unheard of back then. It’s also an exceptionally old or ill-fitting bra - why else can you see the tops of the cups? No woman would have been caught dead with misbehaving lingerie like that back then, and the soft satin cups of 40’s lingerie made it nearly impossible anyway. Her breasts are also sitting at a much lower angle than would be acceptable in the 40’s.
Look at his eyes. He knows by the time he gets to her hair that something is very, very wrong.
so what you are saying is S.H.E.I.L.D. has a super shitty costume division….
Nope, Nick Fury totally did this on purpose.
There’s no knowing what kind of condition Steve’s in, or what kind of person he really is, after decades of nostalgia blur the reality and the long years in the ice (after a plane crash and a shitload of radiation) do their work. (Pre-crash Steve is in lots of files, I’m sure. Nick Fury does not trust files.) So Fury instructs his people to build a stage, and makes sure that the right people put up some of the wrong cues.
Maybe the real Steve’s a dick, or just an above-average jock; maybe he had a knack for hanging out with real talent. Maybe he hit his head too hard on the landing and he’s not gonna be Captain anymore. On the flipside, if he really is smart, then putting him in a standard, modern hospital room and telling him the truth is going to have him clamming up and refusing to believe a goddamn thing he hears for a really long time.
The real question here is, how long it does it take for the man, the myth, the legend to notice? What does he do about it? How long does he wait to get his bearings, confirm his suspicions, and gather information before attempting busting out?
Turns out the answer’s about forty-five seconds.

Incredible. I couldn’t tell from the start if it was a faery-robot photoshoot or something else, turned out it was actual stage costumes, that’s amazing craftsmanship.
