I AM DONE WITH TUMBLR. FUCKING DONE. BUY A HOUSE IN ALBERTA AND STAY IN IT FOREVER AND NEVER EVER COME OUT.
Ha’a Keaulana runs across the ocean floor with a 50 pound boulder. They do this as training to survive the massive surf waves of winter. She learned her amazing skills from her dad, legendary waterman #briankeaulana and her Grandpa, #Buffalo. I was very humbled to learn from the Hawaiians who have salt water running through their veins. Mahalo Nui Loa. Please stay tuned for our upcoming story on the Hawaiian surfing culture.

This is just.. Super impressive.
“A villain is just a victim whose story hasn’t been told.”
Why is this one of the things recommended for me on my dash.
There’s so much wrong with this.
1. The quote is bullshit, and indicative of everything terrible about our society, which constantly puts the pain of the abuser above those they abuse.
2 It also grossly furthers the idea that all victims are potential abusers. Which has real life ramifications, because this is actually something that survivors of child abuse fear and one of the reasons they do not always come forward.
3. Bucky has no goddamn business being in this set. He wasn’t a villain. He actually was a victim.
4. We saw Anakin’s story. We KNOW his story. Cool story, bro, but you still murdered children. You are not now and never shall be a fucking victim, but those babies were, so fuck you and fuck your defenders and especially fuck anyone who would think that you are a goddamn victim.
5. We know Magneto’s story intimately. It has been told often. He was a victim once. And then he decided that Genocide was okay.
6. Fuck Fake White Khan and we do in fact know Real Khan’s story. He did think he was a victim, but no, he was not. He was a complicated and amazing villain that went against the typical type of POC villains that we get - he was brilliant and clever and not just a “thug.” But he was not a victim (no, not even after the neighboring planet went boom.)
7. We know Loki’s story too. It’s one of a whiny spoiled brat who keeps trying to commit genocide.
tldr: Bucky has no business being in this set. The rest of these people are murderous terrible people. They are not victims, though some of them were once.
I waited to reblog this, specifically for someone to express this^^. tumblr delivered.
So, I’m no professor of science or anything, but I’mma do my best on this one. I’m gonna go through everyone, and not just pick the people that I have specific opinions about.
Anakin: Yeah, this one’s pretty spot-on. He did a lot of really shitty things under his own free will, and I’m not going to defend him.
Smeagol/Gollum: This one’s not that hard, Smeagol was presumably a nice enough guy (with an admittedly weak will) until he found a ring that corrupts people. So the ring corrupted him, and he got addicted to it. He killed one person, and then went off, away from any civilization, and didn’t hurt anyone for a few years. Then a guy came along and took his ring which he, by now, had completely succumbed to, and had become completely addicted and corrupted. So, naturally, he went into withdrawal and tried to kill the guy that took it (which is still not cool). Yadda yadda yadda, years pass, and another guy shows up wearing the same ring around his neck, rinse and repeat what happened with Bilbo. However, while with Frodo, Gollum does try, and try HARD, to become good again. He fights the corruption of the ring, and wins, for a time. But in the end, the power of the ring is too much for him and he tries to betray the only person that ever gave him a chance. Dick move. So, basically, you have a nice guy that was TURNED savage and immoral by a force he couldn’t control. So, I would say that Gollum should be held responsible for the shit he did, but not Smeagol, who remained innocent throughout.
Loki: Nope, yeah, still a dick.
Maleficent: A dude she liked tricked her and cut off her wings so she left and made herself a little dark spooky kingdom, then took care of the guys daughter, then saved said daughter when she was cursed into eternal sleep. Yeah she rrrreeeaaally didn’t do a whole lot wrong.
Bucky: Mind control, doesn’t count as villain. However, I think that the original person missed the point where the graphic is meant to show that the person portrayed as the villain is rarely pure evil, which is very true, you can’t say Bucky doesn’t belong on the thing, he was marketed as the big villain of the movie.
Bane: HE TOTALLY MURDERED LIKE HALF A CITY VILLAIN VILLAIN ALL THE WAY
Magneto: Was a victim of the Nazis, forced to go through torture and unimaginable pain. This alone would not be reason enough for him to do bad things. But his people, mutants, were being discriminated against and killed in huge numbers. He didn’t “decide genocide was okay”, he just wanted to protect his people. Everything he did, he did for the sake of the survival of mutants. Think of it as what would’ve happened if the Civil Rights movement went guerrilla. Once it gets to the point where he goes all “mutant supremacy” instead of “STOP FUCKING KILLING US”, he does turn into a dick. So I’d say he’s largely taking revenge way too far, even though he started out pretty good. He does transition from victim to villain, it just depends where you’re looking in his timeline.
Davy Jones: Fell in love with the goddess of the sea, did a lot of stuff for her, and he got one day every ten years to be with her, but she didn’t show up. So she essentially made the guy spend ten years at sea ferrying the souls of the dead into the afterlife, and didn’t give him shit. So he turned into a tyrant and started killing people. Which is not okay. Normal people deal with heartbreak with booze and haagen-dazs, not with homicide. Villain.
Draco Malfoy: I’m not gonna touch this one, there is TOO MUCH SHIT AND THE POTTERHEADS WILL HAVE MY HEAD IF I GET IT WRONG. Suffice it to say that he was a CHILD whose parents forced him to work for the closest thing wizards have ever had to Satan. I wouldn’t call him a villain.
Khan: Shut up about “Fake White Khan”, the director tried to cast a Puerto Rican guy, but he didn’t want to do the role, Cumberbatch was second choice behind a POC. Killed innocents, went all revenge-against-everyone-even-people-who-didn’t-do-anything-to-me, so I’d say villain.
TLDR: Good graphic, not an accurate message, but interesting regardless.
“Be as weird as possible running onto the field”
Never not reblog.
I feel like the guy on tenors was the designated driver.
Nah he probably just couldn’t be that weird cause they’re heavy
Your logic is unwanted here.
Ivan the Terrible and His Son Ivan on November 16, 1581
This painting depicts the historical 16th century story of Ivan the Terrible mortally wounding his son in Ivan in a fit of rage. By far the most psychologically intense of Repin’s paintings, the Emperor’s face is fraught with terror, as his son lay quietly dying in his arms, blood dripping down the side of his face.
