Random Ramblings

Just the random reblogs, customs, art, and thoughts of a 20 year old college student, majoring in Economics, Political Science and Gender and Women's Studies. Current obsessions include: Attack on Titan (RiRen!), Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle (always), and Once Upon a Time (strong SwanQueen shipper). Also feminism (duh), dolls, and sugar gliders! Though I'm always interested in discussions!

My favourite Final Fantasy character that they included in Kingdom Hearts is Sephiroth because he has no real purpose to be there. He just shows up, beats up a teenage boy and leaves

Cerise Wolf. Her design is just so cool!

Hook is not a piece of shit because he regrets past actions and tries to better himself, CS is healthy because Hook always praises Emma, refuses to abandon her and will do anything for her, and his redemption arc is not based around just wanting Emma since he's also shown regret and a desire to change based around things unrelated to Emma (remember Ariel and how ashamed he was of how he handled that?) That, in a nutshell, is why. If you can't see it, then that's on you, not the writers/actors.

I’m just going to assume that this message is about this post. If not, feel free to correct me.

"Hook is not a piece of shit…"

image

Sorry, I needed a moment to laugh. Let’s continue.

"He regrets his past actions and tries to better himself…"

  1. Has he shown any remorse for making Bae grow up thinking his mother was dead? No, didn’t think so.
  2. Has he show any remorse for helping a woman abandon her son, after he himself claims to have been abandoned? Didn’t think so. 
  3. Has he shown any remorse for selling out Bae to Pan? Didn’t think so. In fact, he continues to act like he and Bae had a good relationship. What a prick.
  4. Has he shown any remorse for helping Cora? None whatsoever.
  5. Has he shown any remorse for leaving Regina to be tortured? None. And it doesn’t matter what Regina has done because she had done nothing to him directly and therefore he had no reason or right to leave her there. Does he have any morals? Like at all? Jesus.
  6. Has he shown any remorse for standing aside and letting Cora rip the hearts out of the villagers he had lived among for months? No, instead he hid under their corpses. Those people trusted him; he was the town blacksmith. But he stood aside and did nothing to stop Cora.
  7. Has he shown any remorse for leaving Emma, Snow, Mulan, and Aurora in Rumplestiltskin’s cell to die? No, it’s like the fandom and the characters have brushed that under the rug.
  8. Has he shown any remorse for trying to send Henry to New York without his mothers’ permission, even though he knew New York was dangerous and that Zelena could get there? No. He tried to act like he was being a hero. By sending a child off alone into a dangerous area. Yes, much hero, very regret, wow.
  9. Has he shown any remorse for harming Archie? Didn’t think so.
  10. Has he shown any remorse for any of the three times he tried to kill Belle? No, his apology was a joke.

The only person he has shown remorse toward is Ariel. That’s the only thing he has owned up to.

“CS is healthy because Hook always praises Emma…” So you consider it healthy for him to praise her with lies?

“Emma, you defeated Pan.” That’s a lie. Rumple killed Pan.

image

“Emma, you defeated Zelena.” That’s a lie. Regina defeated Zelena.

image

“I was there when Cora tried to rip out your heart.” Were you, Hook? Were you really?

image

You were unconscious, you lying piece of shit.

image

He “refuses to abandon her”?

Then tell me what happened here, when Hook ABANDONS Emma in the Dark One’s cell. After she begs him not to.

image

I couldn’t find a gif of him calling her “dried up and useless” so here’s a picture of him ABANDONING her. 

image

He “will do anything for her, and his redemption arc is not based around just wanting Emma…”

Oh, so you mean when he helped Charming and his redemption arc “started.” Oh wait. He did that to get Emma. And he doesn’t even deny it.

So, is it still on me, Anon? Or is it on the writers? Is on it me that none of this has been addressed? Or is it on the writers for being lazy and whitewashing Hook rather than redeeming him? Unless you have more of a compelling argument, please stay away from my inbox. 

charmedrumbelle, it seems that someone has tried to explain why Hook is not a piece of shit. But it wasn’t compelling, so they don’t get the money…

The only person he has shown remorse toward is Ariel. That’s the only thing he has owned up to.” 

And even then, still chose to lie to Emma about it.

"He “will do anything for her, and his redemption arc is not based around just wanting Emma…”

Oh, so you mean when he helped Charming and his redemption arc “started.” Oh wait. He did that to get Emma. And he doesn’t even deny it.”

And let’s also not forget that as soon as he and everyone else was back in FTL and he thought he’d never see Emma again, never get to be with her, he completely ditched everyone Emma love, refuse to help them, and went right back to being a pirate.

But no, yeah, it’s not all about Emma at all.

The most dangerous phrase in the language is, “we’ve always done it this way.”

"Come on, let’s mix it up!" The heart surgeon says.

"B-but we’ve always done it this way!" The other replies, "this is how you replace a heart valve."

"That’s the most dangerous phrase in the human language!" The first surgeon replies haughtily as he inputs a fruit loop into the patient’s heart. "This will be his valve. He will be a fruit loop in a world of Cheerios."

(taken from this post on the experiments of Harry Harlow)

This is serious business, because this is a large part of how sexism, racism, homophobia, rape culture, ethnocentrism, etc. continue to happen.

That bullshit heart surgery example doesn’t even make sense though, does that person think that we’re still doing heart surgery the exact same way we’ve always done heart surgery? As if medicine isn’t constantly changing and updating? Wow it’s almost like people are finding excuses to not have to think critically about the world!

La Paz (AFP) - Bolivia on Wednesday renounced a visa exemption agreement with Israel in protest over its offensive in Gaza, and declared it a terrorist state.

President Evo Morales announced the move during a talk with a group of educators in the city of Cochabamba.

It “means, in other words, we are declaring (Israel) a terrorist state,” he said.

The treaty has allowed Israelis to travel freely to Bolivia without a visa since 1972.

Morales said the Gaza offensive shows “that Israel is not a guarantor of the principles of respect for life and the elementary precepts of rights that govern the peaceful and harmonious coexistence of our international community.”

More than two weeks of fighting in Gaza have left 1,300 dead and 6,000 wounded amid an intense Israeli air and ground campaign in response to missile attacks by the Islamist militant group Hamas.

In the latest development, 20 people were killed after two Israeli shells slammed into a United Nations school, drawing international protests.

Bolivia broke off diplomatic relations with Israel in 2009 over a previous military operation in Gaza.

In mid-July, Morales filed a request with the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to prosecute Israel for “crimes against humanity.”
