what the fuck i dont have time for this
#why are you on a firehydrant
she’s lovely, to be sure, but there’s
something behind her eyes,
something empty and yawning
something you could never
ever touch if you tried.
i can tell she’s not a very good person
and doesn’t give a shit,
i can tell that inside she’s as dead as i
pretend to be,
and that is just irresistible

What if Charlie Weasley is asexual? Like what if when his brothers were going through puberty and getting crushes on girls and just obsessing over them, Charlie was just like, “Guys. DRAGONS.”
Dear Drama Writers,
Here we have two examples of confident beautiful women who are portraying the role of awkward and geeky women who lack confidence. The top one from High School is a prime example of what not to do. She is a caricature of what this perceived type if woman is. Between her horrible faces,terrible wardrobe and horrible way of speaking she to me is failing at acting this out this troupe. However, we then have bottom picture that is a prime example of how to portray this type of character perfectly. These two actresses are playing the same type of role but Jang Na-Ra adds a depth and believably to the role Lee Ha Na will never be able to reach. I hope I’m not the only one making these comparisons since this type of character seems to be this seasons female lead troupe. I honestly wish they would start writing REAL women. A woman can be nerdy,awkward, and have bad fashion but still be SO much more than just those superficial external things. Real women are a cluster of many things we are multidimensional beings and I wish we would start seeing that in dramas.
I couldn’t have said it better. It is extremely saddening to see that writers still mold women in very few and simplistic “categories”, neglecting the fact that women are human beings. Let’s not forget how writers also completely obliterate the fact that they have much more to show and to say than what they are allowed to in dramas. It makes me wonder if they actually have any interactions with women.
"oh my GOd there are TWO gay characters in this movie lets watch it"
"dude dude dude we have to see it it has a queer girl”
"I heard this movie has non-sexualized female character”
"ok I know it only has one girl but she is written like an ACTUAL PERSON!!"
"THERE IS A TRANS CHARACTER"
"so its not canon but if you squint I think this character is asexual”
"and get this the gay character is actually not white”
