Interviewers flirting with Jared Leto since forever.
A Football!? Oh no! What was I doing!!? Wake up stupid! Wake up!
jennifer fucking lawrence doesn’t think that bisexual women can have sex with men or have kids, and then referred to bisexuality as a “lesbian phase”
but she said that she likes food! shes so quirky and relatable you cant criticize her! she makes funny faces sometimes! did i mention she likes food!
hey whoa roll back the clock for a second. the exact quote was “No! That’s the first time I’ve heard that. She has kids, she has night crawlers, and she sleeps with Magneto! Unless I’m completely wrong, I mean, she is 100 years old, she definitely had time for a lesbian phase.”
You completely took the quote out of context, just to try and prove a point.
Then again, this is tumblr. So people want notes and the jazz. So lets sensationalize and misunderstand everything said.
This quote does not mean that she believes bisexuals cant sleep with men, or have children, when asked did she know that Mystique was originally written as bisexual, she was more saying ‘no i didnt think of that because she has kids and bangs magneto.’ Im pretty sure the cool kids are using ‘heteronormativity’ for this. Its where people assume, people are straight because of certain conditions, without thinking that they could possibly be another sexuality. She didn’t know. She is not a comic reader. How would she know other wise unless someone told her? Not everyone can be heath ledger and lock themselves into a hotel room with every kind of reading imaginable.
Yoooo. I gotta talk about this because I’ve been thinking about it for a while and I almost just let it go but I think that it is far too important to ignore.
The first time I read what she had really said (in context) I was like, well, that isn’t EXACTLY what she said… but then I realized—it was. How can you think that, you say? Well, because that IS what she said.
She was told that Mystique was originally written as bisexual, and responded with something extremely problematic instead of saying “Wow, no, I never considered that [how stupid of me].”
SHE LITERALLY SAYS “Unless I’m completely wrong” after she said “she [has children] and she sleeps with Magneto!” which roughly translates to “she could not be anything except straight because she sleeps with a man and has children!”
She also LITERALLY SAYS “She definitely had time for a lesbian phase.” There is not enough time in the universe to discuss the million things that are wrong with this so I will just shed light on two: the first is that it suggests that all bisexual women go through a “phase” where they date women before eventually ending up with a man. Secondly, and most importantly, A WOMAN DOES NOT EVER HAVE TO BE WITH A WOMAN TO CONSIDER HERSELF BISEXUAL. I will repeat for emphasis, A WOMAN DOES NOT EVER HAVE TO BE WITH A WOMAN TO CONSIDER HERSELF BISEXUAL. Just because you never date and/or sleep with someone who identifies as the same gender as you does not necessarily mean that you do not feel sexual and/or romantic attraction to them. I know plenty of women who identify as bisexual who have never actually “been” with a woman, but choose to acknowledge their attraction to them.
So yes, that is what she said.
Saying something casually in an interview for the sake of banter and saying something with ill intent are two entirely different things. Don’t burn someone at the stake if they misspoke, and tell the world what they “believe” because the fact is we all say things that offend certain people every day without even knowing it or having intention to do so, and if we had the chance to explain and correct the situation we would, but she doesn’t, so don’t criminalize her for it. I don’t have any personal investment in celebrities and don’t typically jump to their defense because I just don’t care, but I’d bet all the money I’ve got that she simply answered a question at face value and if someone explained why what she said could be construed the way it was, then she’d understand, take it back, and apologize, but it’s a lot easier to be angry and publicly debase them. There are times to criticize people who are genuinely ignorant, but taking quotes out of interviews to harangue a person’s character over the internet isn’t progressive or constructive. It’s very, very easy to be offended, we can all agree on that, but it’s a struggle to remain objective and positive. Let’s strive for more discussion and less aggression.
@davidfincher said: i never liked you *envious* haha great visuals, nice lighting and compositions.
@davidfincher said: wow, that’s awesome. That camera is a hot mess in the real world supposedly, but it still makes some hot images if you know how to use it lol
haha thanks so much, man! And yeah, I was literally broke going into this project, so I couldn’t afford any rentals, so I worked with what I had and I’m not disappointed with the image quality thus far! My friend and I have been using Canon DSLRs for years so luckily we can make them work for us, and that magic lantern firmware helped a whooooole lot
Thank you, I appreciate that! It was shot on a Canon T2i and 7D
Dude, holy shit! *applauses*
maggiecheungs said: Yo man this is some good shit, what were you shooting on?
Thanks! And we shot on both a Canon T2i and a 7D
pastinsidethepresent said: The third frame is absolutely excellent.
Thank you! It was partially inspired by “The Death of Marat” it’s still one of my favorite shots. Unfortunately, we had only our hands, so we couldn’t do the tracking shot we really had our hearts set on.
Some stills from my short film, so far….
The rough cut is done, but I’m going to do some color grading for the REAL final cut over winter break, and my roommates and I are going to soundscape/score it. Between this and my roommate’s project, we’re developing a reel to use so we can make music videos for our other roommate’s musician clients as well. So soon, we may be doing pretty well for ourselves.
