Whats your opinion on the HIMYM finale

My answer:

I hated it. The only character that got even a somewhat satisfying ending was Marshall. Lily ended up having 3 kids when she could barely handle Marvin and I’m sure she’s not working on her art or teaching career. Barney got divorced, literally had all of his character development erased and then had a child, which apparently completely changed him and developed him in all the ways Robin couldn’t, which is so much bullshit I can’t even touch. TED, the most romantic man in the world TED MOSBY, met the love of his life and didn’t even bother to marry her until after their two children. Like come on does that really sound like the Ted we spent 9 years watching? Only to have her die and then him be like yknow I never really got over Aunt Robin WTF?! So what was happening that entire time he was with the mother? WHAT HAPPENED TO LETTING ROBIN GO?! Also, The Mother was literally the biggest waste of time. Her entire purpose was to give Ted the kids Robin couldn’t and then they killed her. I don’t even think I can talk about Robin because they completely destroyed her. I refuse to believe that her and Barney would not have found a way to make it work. It’s made even worse by the fact that both the loves of her life (Barney and Ted) were made happy by the one thing Robin couldn’t give them. Also, does anyone remember Ted’s ‘Robin was never alone’ speech? She looked pretty fucking alone to me every time they showed her (which was like twice hahahahaha).

Basically, the moral of the story is the purpose of women is to have children and if you can’t pop a baby out, you’re useless. 

My issue is that this would have been a plausible ending after season 2 or 3, but at some point HIMYM became a different show and this ending was tailored to the original creation. There’s no way Carter and Craig truly thought that was a satisfying ending. I just think it’s lazy on their parts to not have fixed the ending when it became clear how ludicrous it was at this point. Like I honestly felt like that entire finale happened in a different timeline. 

"Basically, the moral of the story is the purpose of women is to have children and if you can’t pop a baby out, you’re useless."

WOW, how did you even get there? Did we watch the same show? Are you sure you weren’t watching Foxnews? NOWHERE DID THE SHOW EVER IMPLY, EVER FOR A SECOND, THAT BABIES WERE THE END-ALL, BE-ALL. EVER.

Hate it for real reasons, not stupid shit you made up. Like, say, that the ending they shoe-horned in wasn’t even necessary, so it just fucked shit up… THAT would be a reason to hate it. Unnecessary shipping. But “no babies = useless”? Never even hinted at. Your brain is diseased or something, looking for sexism where it is not.

I’m not saying this was some overreaching arc of the whole series, but (whether intentional or not) it was literally all that came across in the finale. Let’s look at the fate of the three women on the show based on the finale, shall we? 

Lily- The only thing we learn about Lily in the finale is that she had 3 kids, fulfilling Marshall’s dream. We don’t hear about her career. We don’t know what happened during her time in Italy. The only thing the finale told us was she had Marvin, Daisy, and another child. On the other hand, Marshall not only became a judge but he excelled even further. 

Robin- As we learned previously, Robin can’t have children. That’s fine, she didn’t want them anyway. But we see her for all of maybe 10 minutes in the entirety of the finale and she almost never looks happy. She couldn’t have babies, she is made completely irrelevant for almost the entire finale until Ted shows up with the blue french horn to get his happy ending, but not Robin’s. Can we all discuss how Robin’s always been a career woman? That’s always been her goal. Why is she not happy traveling the world and living her dream? (I would argue it’s because she lost Barney and all of her friends, but still I imagine she’d be a little happier).

I don’t even want to get into the fact that Barney completely regressed as a character and then developed once again after he had a baby, who’s mother was literally called Number 31. They didn’t even give her a name, that’s how much she mattered. 

The Mother- THE MOTHER WAS AN ACTUAL PLOT DEVICE TO GIVE TED CHILDREN. This is so blatant. My brain is not diseased, you just don’t notice obvious overtones. Her entire purpose was to be the “love of Ted’s life” while also pushing out two kids for Ted and then she kicked the bucket. Also the fact that she was called The Mother until the last 5 seconds is kind of hilariously ironic. 

Look, I don’t think Carter and Craig are horrible sexist people. I’m sure they didn’t even realize the implications (I don’t know why I’m still giving them the benefit of the doubt). But you can’t ignore the fact that the men all got their happy endings while the women: died, raised three children she didn’t want, and was seriously unhappy until the guy WHO IS NOT RIGHT FOR HER AT ALL came to win her back.

baking-soda Asked:
if boromir lived and had gone to helm's deep and onward with aragorn et al, how awesome would it have been, scale of one to ten.

My answer:

clarabeau:

Haha, “on a scale of one to ten.” I don’t recognize this scale when it comes to Boromir at Helm’s Deep. Try like idk a major pentatonic scale and on that scale, Boromir at Helm’s Deep would basically be a ten minute long Metallica scream.

By then Aragorn and Boromir would have been so tight. Aragorn’s chill but deeply appreciative acceptance of Boromir’s declaration of fealty would have only solidified Boromir’s massive respect for him and Aragorn would place so much value on Boromir’s court savvy, his hard-won loyalty, his leadership qualities and his bravery and you know, the way he slid across the slate and almost tumbled over the cliff himself, grabbing Aragorn’s arm at the last second and saving him from falling in that river, pulling him up with dat Boromir side grin. Let the tower guard take up the call, let the bass drop: the lords of Gondor have returned.

Boromir would be diplomatically repairing that relationship with Rohan. Boromir would be psyching up the troops on the wall with his incredibly motivating qualities of casual bro charm and steely experience in battle. Boromir would be quietly chatting with Eowyn by the hearth after everyone else falls asleep because they both understand what it means to be shackled to a role by tradition, to be helpless to protect your family as much as you want to, to put country and duty before your own needs. Boromir blastin full big bro super saiyan on Wormtongue.

PS CAN WE ALL IMAGINE BOROMIR’S FACE AT THE WEDDING OF HIS KID BROTHER TO THIS BADASS ROHAN WARRIOR AND ALL AROUND WONDERFUL PERSON WHO ALSO HAPPENS TO BE A GRADE A BABE. CAN YOU IMAGINE BOROMIR’S FACE. CAN YOU IMAGINE HOW POIGNANT AND SURPRISINGLY SENSITIVE HIS TOAST SPEECH WOULD BE. CAN YOU IMAGINE HOW SLOPPY HAPPY DRUNK BOROMIR WOULD GET AT THE RECEPTION, HOW MUCH HE WOULD LOVE EVERYONE IN THIS BAR. BECAUSE I CAN.

sobbing irl imagining boromir the happy drunk at faramir’s wedding. 

He would have had a Merry on one knee and a Pippin on the other.

being a feminist is like trying to fix a giant hole in the wall and discovering that the entire wall is rotting and filled with termites and you have a lot more work to do than you thought you did

And also the termites verbally attack you while you fix the wall.

"NOT ALL TERMITES ARE LIKE THAT"

YOU’RE BEING SPECIES-IST AGAINST TERMITES UGH YOU’RE JUST AS BAD AS THE TERMITES TRYING TO EAT YOUR HOUSE HAVE YOU TRIED ASKING THEM NICELY TO LEAVE OR MAYBE IGNORING THEM IT’LL TOTALLY BE MORE EFFECTIVE
