I’ve come to understand why, during my internet dating years, so many women responded to my inquiries (I promise I wasn’t creepy) by not responding at all. At the time it drove me crazy, the silence, even more so than the rejections. We’re both on this webspace looking to meet people, can’t you give me a simple “no thanks” so I know when to walk away?
Now I get it. If you’re a woman on the internet, every single interaction is a roll of the dice and you can never tell when that roll will come up “u ugly bitch” so it’s safer and easier to just not say anything. In the online dating world, that becomes common sense.
But never forget: there are men who don’t even wait for that reply. Just being a woman online can be enough to trigger a dice roll. Imagine if every tweet or article you wrote meant a personal insult came your way. Sure, you can block, you can mute, you can ignore, but eventually you’d start to wonder if it wouldn’t be easier to not say anything.
That’s how silencing works and it makes me furious. And to those who insist that women must “grow thicker skin” and simply “accept” the reality of online abuse, here’s a revelation for you: anyone who already suffers through a daily flood of insults or threats just to exist online has thicker skin than you. They’re the ones with the courage, not you and your false keyboard bravado.
To say nothing of the women who face real-life harassment every day, be it catcalls from strangers, an oppressive workplace, or a real-life stalker. Compared to them, we’re all cowards.
Instead of just one stunt double, though, Johansson now has three who can step in whenever the action gets too intense. At first glance, they look remarkably like the star—but with a telltale pattern of dots on their faces that will serve as guides for visual-effects artists to graft Johansson’s face onto their bodies in postproduction. "It’s always funny," says Chris Evans, who worked closely with Johansson on Captain America: The Winter Soldier. "You walk by, ‘Hey, Scarlett—oh weird. You’re not Scarlett at all. Sorry.’ A lot of fake Scarletts around."
Peggy Carter being so done with inaccurate WWII films (Pearl Harbor, 2001)
Several of the nurses in the film have hair longer than would have been allowed. Military women weren’t permitted to wear their hair longer than just above their collar.

Danny exclaims “I think World War II just hit us!” when in fact it wasn’t called “World War II” until 1948. World War I was still being referred to as “The Great War” at the time.
The Japanese Zeros depicted here are painted dark green, but during 1941 they were painted light grey. They weren’t painted green until 1943.

Was listening to this the other day when the inspiration hit me. I was thinking of picking either Cecilos or the Di Angelo siblings for the song (I just realized how appropriate this was for Cecilos when I was drawing this! (THE TITLE IS THE SCIENTIST) but PJO won me over since I haven’t drawn for the fandom recently. ;u; Should I post a GIF version of this? I have one in my drafts!
