Star Wars Female Character Meme: Quotes (5/5)

"We have no time for sorrows, Commander."  
  - Leia Organa ( A New Hope)

      (x)

NO BUT OKAY REAL TALK this actually says so much about Leia’s character. Like her first reaction is to shove her own personal hurts down. She is always putting other people and the Rebellion - and yes - kicking Imperial ass - before her own emotional and physical pain. Her default reaction to emotions is actually “ignore them” or “shove them down and pretend they don’t exist” or “cover them up with sarcasm and biting comments and being tough-as-nails”. Like, her whole chracter arc is her coming to realize that showing vulnerability and emotional hurt/attachment doesn’t make her weak (she literally says in one ESB deleted scenes “when will I learn not to depend on anyone other than myself”), and realizing that people take her just as seriously if she takes time to hurt once in a while. ((This translates into her relationship with Han too - I mean, Han has the same problem, but for different reasons (while Leia’s comes from growing up in war and watching her planet explode/people die and feeling responsible for them, Han’s is more from insecurity over being chewed up and spat back out by the world numerous times - but even so, they’re pretty similar) - and so both of them end up pretending that neither of them has feelings for each other - but Leia does it more than Han, because she’s more concerned with becoming attached to people/showing vulnerability.)) LIKE. THIS LINE MAKES ME SO SAD. BECAUSE THIS IS A SEVENTEEN YEAR OLD GIRL. SHE SHOULDN’T BE SO QUICK TO DISMISS HER OWN HURTS LIKE THIS. SHE SHOULDN’T BE FEELING RESPONSIBLE FOR AN ENTIRE REBELLION - HELL, AN ENTIRE GALAXY. bUT SHE DOES, AND SHE PRETENDS SHE’S NOT HURT AND PUTS ON A BRaVE FACE FOR OTHER PEOPLE, ALWAYS, AND JUST

LEIA ORGANA OKAY

Here goes something?

After getting some good feedback from my earlier post, and because I could use some extra money right now, I’m going to open miniature painting commissions.

So, as we’ve seen, I’ve been honing my skills redoing my old Battletech stuff, but I’m also comfortable working with other types of minis too. Here’s some examples:

Leonis 001

Front ShotGlade GuardDryad 8 Carfinex

If you’re interested in working with me, please contact me via my ask box or by email (bzarcher AT gmail) and we can discuss the project and pricing.

As mentioned earlier, if you can supply the miniatures to be painted, I will work at a discount! Please help get the word out for me on this!

Today one of my friends was dress coded for her bra strap showing and so she wrote on the gym shirt that they gave her. It reads “Dress Code: promotes the objectification and sexualization of young bodies, blames the wearer for the onlooker’s perceptions/actions, perpetuates rape culture, and is bullshit” On the back she wrote “You can’t shame me for something I’m not ashamed for”. It was really cool seeing all of the people’s reactions who saw it and I thought what she did was pretty cool.

I'm on anon, because I know that if I don't I'll get lots of hatemail. Its happened before. I'm a survivor of rape, and there are a lot of non-inclusive feminist circles where when I try to speak up about my love of Stephen Moffat's writing (that kept me from killing myself during my recovery, thank you very much) I am shut up, and called horrible things for finding strength from his words. I appreciate every defense of him you've given, because mentally I can't handle it... So don't give up. <3

Thank you for saying this.

I can promise you that I am very, very bad at giving up at these sorts of things.

I would like to point out how spectacularly fucked up Moffat criticism is that a rape survivor who credits Moffat’s work as a coping mechanism after the trauma has to make these comments anonymously because they are afraid of the hat email they will get.

IS THIS WHAT FEMINISM IS? Bullying females into silence? Really?

Fuck you assholes. Every one of you. Not only are you erasing the experiences of large swaths of female fans but you do it with such vitriolic that you scare us (and I absolutely count myself in that number) into keeping our mouths shut.

Congrats on being the textbook definition of abusers. That’s some great feminism you’ve got going there.
