That was not supposed to be one big block of ramble. Apparently Tumblr is not acknowledging my paragraphs no matter how many times I edit it. Fantastic. Now I’m twice as self-conscious about opening my mouth as I was before.
I’ve been trying to let this post slide, but I can’t stop thinking about it. I’m a girl. I am a huge MCU fan. I’ve seen GotG 3 times and I’ll probably see it again. Let me tell all of you a few things about this scene. 1- That was taken nearly word-for-word from the comics. It’s not just a gag aimed at making the fanboys laugh. It was an ode to its source material and an accurate depiction of Peter Quill’s life at that time. 2- In regards to Star-Lord: I honestly believe he didn’t know Bereet was there. It was a (possibly drunken) one night stand. He probably thought she had left the Milano and was still on whatever planet they had met on. This was not someone he spent a lot of time with. He didn’t even know her name! I don’t think for one second that he wouldn’t have yelled out a warning if he thought she was still there. He may be an ass, but he is not 100% a dick. 3- While I can’t really speak for James Gunn as a person, from the little I know of his works, trying to push aside the girls in favour of the guys is not how he rolls. He may rely on his experience and point of view as a man, but he has not written women as inferior in the 4 other films of his that I have personally seen. 4- NICOLE PERLMAN. First woman to ever been given writer’s credit in a Marvel film. She has been trying for years to be heard and taken seriously in the sci-fi industry. Because of GotG, it has been announced that she’s currently working on the treatment for the Black Widow movie and, if we’re lucky, it will still be in her hands when it comes into existence. Do you really think she would forget about the fangirls while she has been fighting for us all this time? Finally, I ask all of you this: What if this was Petra “Star-Lady” Quill? What if she didn’t know her bar hookup was still on board? What if it was her saying “Sorry - I honestly forgot you were here”? Would we still be having this conversation, or would you be cheering her on?
my fav part of gotg was when peter quill told that alien girl “i honestly forgot you were even here.”
it’s like james gunn was talking directly to me, a girl in the audience who was trying to enjoy the media he clearly created for only the boys in the audience.
