i rewatched the princess bride tonight w/my fam and i enjoyed it but it is one of those things i enjoy less now that i am older mostly bc i find buttercup as a character just frankly sexist
Friend of mine did a book report on the novel. She said the novel was written by a man whose wife/girlfriend had left him, and was full of sexism and manpain. Buttercup actually left Westley in the Fire Swamp, because she didn’t believe in True Love.
[apologies if my facts are wrong, please correct me if that’s the case!]
Wow, it’s so hard to understand why a woman-written comic about a female superhero who wears a sensible costume, writes fanfic, and stuffs her face with tasty gyros is so popular and trendy, while a cover for a forthcoming male-written book that portrays its female superhero as sexxily posing for porn sexxx in a suit that clings to every anatomical feature of her 22-inch waist and ass is widely derided. I mean, the thing is that it’s just really mysterious. It’s like how audiences say they’re interested in Black Panther and Ms. Marvel movies, when really what they want is even more white male superheroes. People are so confusing!
