"Here’s a general rule. When an insult is directed at a woman, consider how it would have sounded directed at a man. If the result is ridiculous, then it’s probably sexist."

came across this great comment on an article Ruby Tandoh (Great British Bake Off Runner Up) wrote for The Guardian (via aconits)

Harley is a gift from God.

This is why Harley is like my all time favorite!

Why did they leave out the best part of this scene?;

The character development of Harley is probably one of the better things DC has done with their characters.

I want to point out that Gabe Jones had completed at least three semesters of college (and probably more) before he ended up running around Europe blowing things up with a guy in spangly tights.

Dum Dum: I didn’t know you spoke German.
Gabe: Two semesters at Howard before I switched to French because the girls were cuter.

Gabe Jones is pretty damn awesome.* I dug up some stats so we can appreciate how awesome.
In 1940:
2% of white people age 14 and older in the USA were illiterate. For POC ("Black and other") it was 11.5%
13% of white men age 25 and older had completed high school. For men of color of the same age (“Black and other races”) it was 3.8%.
5.3% percent of white men age 25 and older had completed at least one year of college. For men of color of the same age it was 1.7%.
In other words, Gabe had the deck stacked against him in a serious way, but he is a smartypants and he is tenacious and he slogged through a lot of crap to get to where he wanted to be. He needs more appreciation.
*Of course, we knew that already, but there’s no such thing as too much Gabe Jones love.

I really hope he shows up on Agent Carter.

"The text reads “Score! Superman does it again!,” because as we all know, mackin’ on Amazon warriors is one of America’s national past times and we are required to assign the practice a points system just like we do in baseball. Also, Wonder Woman’s a lasso-less “it” now, we guess. Yeah, that’s why her arm’s all weird at the bottom of the shirt; she’s supposed to be lassoing Superman in the picture. But why present a powerful female superhero using one of her trademark symbols as a marker of sexual agency when you can instead present her as a stiff, rigid board to be scored upon?"
