Yes, being in a female dominated field, I do know what it means to be marginalized. “

oh

my

god

omg

oh my fucking god

The really ugly part is they’ve actually done multiple sociological studies on this, and guess what the result is? Men in female-dominated fields aren’t marginalized at all; they get special treatment and are fast-tracked to the top, getting more credit for their work, faster promotions, and greater pay and benefits than their female colleagues.

Here’s one study. Here’s another. And another.

So I’ve reached the ‘Little Dog’ arc of American Captain and

like, okay, I don’t understand a version of movie!Pepper that isn’t like. Perfect. At reading people and understanding how to converse with them I mean

She’s blunt and snappish around Tony but he’s Tony. That’s the relationship she has with him and that’s evolved over years of interaction. She’s a business woman who understands the power of words—that doesn’t just stop when you’re off the clock, that’s part of who she is and how she engages with the world. If it were just a Business Persona, she wouldn’t be so fucking good at her job; if it didn’t come naturally, she wouldn’t be this successful.

I can understand the idea of her getting wrapped up in Tony Drama and snapping at a friend because she assumes they’re comfortable enough that she can show her frustration—that they’d understand and let her vent—but if that person wasn’t okay with it? She’d apologize and stop. And they wouldn’t have to tell her they aren’t okay with it, she’d be able to see it in their body language and hear it in what responses she did get. And that apology would be entirely genuine because she wouldn’t want to be the one putting strain on a personal relationship. This person has no obligation to put up with her shit; she doesn’t want them around because they SHOULD put up with it, she wants them around because she likes them and she would only want to show them how much she likes them because Pepper Potts is a kind, loving person who prefers things that are nice

She’s just better at reading people than this. And like this isn’t the first strip that’s had Pepper antagonizing Steve; all of that’s struck me as bullshit. And its sad cuz I do like the idea of them having a friendship, especially one built around modern art, I just believe it’d be more functional than this. If only because Pepper is about function. She doesn’t like conflict, especially unnecessary conflict that could be avoided by better reading the situation and choosing the ‘right’ words.

I still like parts of the conversations, I like seeing Steve deal with PTSD and having to wrestle with unwanted thoughts, I like the moments that do feel in character I just wanted to vent a bit about the shit that isn’t sitting well with me

#blu reads american captain

i don’t agree with that interp of Thor either, tbh. seems wooden

eh thats kinda par for the course with the comic? Everyone’s a little hit-or-miss depending on the strip. And Thor is so fucking hard to write like I have no intention to even try I’d just embarrass myself

idk if I were honest there’s a lot I don’t agree with, and yet I’m really enjoying myself because its hitting shit in Steve that I’ve either thought about but didn’t know how to express or hadn’t thought about and find myself agreeing with. It’s a mixed bag but its kinda like a mixed bag of chexmix—not every piece is delicious but that’s not why you’re eating it either #food

at this point I’m just thinking aloud whoops

okay one thing I don’t agree with is Steve not being able to handle his friends talking about sex

I mean

/MOTIONS LOUDLY AT BUCKY. AND THE HOWLIES. 

Like its one thing if its sex with him—intimacy with him would make him uncomfortable but he’d still be able to quip about it (PDAs make people uncomfortable—yes they do.) If this happened, idk that he’d be too embarrassed to see the humor in the situation. He may not feel comfortable joking about it with Jane considering he’s not v. close to her, but, idk

I’m of the opinion that Steve is not a delicate impressionable flower re: sex, his relationship with it is just very complicated and outside Bucky and Peggy, he’s never gotten an intimate relationship work. And even IN the case of Bucky and Peggy, they never worked in the way he was taught they ‘should’ (his relationship with Bucky was considered deviant and technically illegal and he never got very far into courting Peggy because War and also Death)  

sO IDK

bluandorange:

Steve realizing Sam is trying to counsel him through his bullshit. Steve trying to defuse his own guilt and shame by saying he feels like he should be paying Sam for his services. Sam saying yeah he really should and joking about Steve’s ‘fortune’ (ie savings, the allowance he gets from Stark aka Pepper) until Steve’s comfortable enough to genuinely thank him 

gotta figure out a way to explore Steve not being able to ride his motorcycle anymore

maybe he should get a legit bike. He’d be on asthma medication and always have his inhaler so he wouldn’t be going at a snail’s crawl (like he’d expect himself to go at. Well, maybe that’s his expectation, idk I guess I also need to figure out what Steve considers to be his limitations when returning to factory-state) 

I also really like the idea of Bucky taking him for rides—like maybe Steve talks to him about giving his bike away and Bucky’s like uhm no one gets it but me, especially not Clint or Tony. Sam will have to fight me if he wants it but I don’t think you should tell him he can even have it you should just give it to me—but there’s still the issue of Steve getting a heaping helping of self-pity when riding at the back of someone else (is there another term besides ‘b*tchseat’ for that position???) . I mean hte opportunity for a LOT of gay thoughts is right there, but its also kinda…obvious

I hope y’all don’t expect me to stop liveblogging this fic planning shit because its helping too damn much
