One year, I taught this (Sociological theory) class and only used female writers. The journals were written by women, the textbook was written by females. Do you know what kind of responses I got on my student evaluations that year? {…} That I was biased, that I was only looking from one point of view… that I was basically a man eater. That’s the kind of things I’d get from the students… The semester before, I used only male writers. Do you think I got any kind of feedback like that then?

Perfect.

It’s about fucking mutants stop trying to making this meaningful.

Media—comics, film, literature, video games—exist for us to find our own meaning and value in it. Especially mutants, which are a super powerful and accessible metaphor for nearly anyone who has ever felt maligned for reasons beyond their control. Shut up. 

I’m sorry who are you?

I’m the person who found this scene meaningful, made this gifset and now has to see annoying reblog comments like yours pop up on my dashboard. 

Are you fucking kidding me. The X-men comics were literally a metaphor for racism and xenophobia. This is meaningful because it is meant to be meaningful.

Fucking start shit with me if you got a problem with Nightcrawler or Storm.
