Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy - Dancing Groot
“Baby Groot dancing is 100 percent me. I was too embarrassed for anyone to be there, so I made everyone leave the room and I set up a camera and I videotaped myself dancing. Then I sent the video to the animators and had them animate over that. I begged them not to leak the video! Two of my closest friends came to an early screening and said ‘Hey, I recognize those moves! That’s you dancing isn’t it?!’” - Vin Diesel
reblogged before but that comment just makes it that much better

Trying on clothes is really hard when you hate yourself. Liking someone is really hard when you hate yourself. Eating is really hard when you hate yourself. Life is really hard when you hate yourself.

go into a starbucks in NYC and say very loudly into your phone “this movie script is stale and trite! we need some new talent, someone with a fresh outlook” and wait

someone please save us from the hell that is sex positive feminism
Sex-positivity is categorically a good (if problematic, like everything) thing.
Having the word “positive” in its name does not actually make it categorically good. It’s a sort of Frank Luntz word manipulation. (“It’s not what you say but what people hear.”)
Overall, it’s done more damage than good in terms of positive relationships with sex/romance. And it has perpetuated a hell of a lot of misogyny, particularly by promoting and basically depending on the myth of a natural order of hypersexual men and hypersexualized women.
