44% of the audience of Guardians of the Galaxy is female and all the speculation states that women went to see it for Chris Pratt’s body. I don’t think that’s fair. Maybe (and this is crazy) they just like kickass movies with space shit and explosions. Maybe women can do things without men being their motivation. Maybe.
People have offered many potential explanations for this discrepancy, but this ad highlights the importance of the social cues that push girls away from math and science in their earliest childhood years.
This is so important. Girls pay attention. Boys, if you are a brother, father, cousin of a girl, pay attention.
This is CRITICAL
Actually - boys, pay attention, because women are PEOPLE who deserve respect in their own right, not just because they’re related to you.
That awkward moment far far away.

I am going to legitimately cry at this
I saw this in an interview, because it was held from them until they read it in script. Priceless!

While Mark is like “YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!”
even we trekkies know this important

I was 900% prepared for her to flip the bird for science in this scene like oh here’s the bones of the finger that I use to say ‘fuck you’
hey remember when we used to have companions who were actualized individuals and not just puzzles to be solved
Just because I’m curious, does anyone else have grapheme-colour synesthesia (numbers/letters have a certain colour) and if so what colours are the numbers 0-9? For me 0 has no colour, 1 is white, 2 is yellow, 3 is light blue, 4 is dark green, 5 is bronzey orange, 6 is dark blue, 7 is orange, 8 is reddy purple and 9 is black. I alway find it interesting yet very cringey to hear what other colours people see numbers as.
0 = Black
1 = white
2 = light blue
3 = yellow
4 = turquoise-y forest green
5 = red
6 = mint green
7 = Purple (strong magenta tones)
8 = Yellow ochre or mustard
9 = deep chocolate brown

Please tell me you’re asking about his Jack O’Neill days because I saw a recent photo of him and it was more disappointing than Brendan Frasier.
Hello, friend and fellow Stargate fan! Did you know that RDA is 64 years old, and has been basically retired from acting for nine years? That’s nine years during which he focused on building his house; being a single, full-time dad to his daughter, who is now a teenager; and traveled around the world to dozens of fan conventions. Also during that time, he had several surgeries he’d been putting off for years until he had the time off to do them, including multiple painful foot surgeries and surgery to correct a blocked heart valve, in addition to dealing with chronic back pain and knee pain from all the times he injured himself over the years doing stunts and just, you know, living life. A couple of times, he was forced into extended periods of recovery and inactivity, and required medications that caused weight gain. And did I mention that the man is 64 years old?
*sigh* You know what? I’m tired of having this discussion about anyone. Because A PERSON’S VALUE DOES NOT LIE IN THEIR APPEARANCE. Not Richard Dean Anderson’s, not Brendan Frasier’s, not Angelina Jolie’s, not yours, not mine, not anyone’s.
Look. It’s rude to comment on other people’s bodies, whether they’re famous, or your sister, or “they used to be hot!” All human beings age. RDA has just as much worth as a person now, as a fat old guy, as he did as a young fit guy—and he certainly has more wisdom. Please don’t reduce him, or anyone, to a mere body with an attractiveness expiration date by focusing on something as changeable as appearance.
My friend Bethany rarely goes off, but when she does, it’s excellent.
(It’s also usually about Richard Dean Anderson.)
When the hubby and I saw Richard Dean Anderson at OZ Comic Con 2013, the highlight of both our lives as he’s played a major part for us as Stargate fans, he apologised profusely for his appearance throughout the entirety of the convention.
This made a lot of us nerds in attendance there constantly and consistently reassure him throughout both days that he had absolutely NOTHING to be ashamed about in regards to that. He promised he’d be “better-looking the next go around”, because it got to him that so many people out there, especially like you posey, figured they had every right to to remind him at every turn that he was “an ugly cunt” now and “should go back to looking perfect like he did in his youth”.
That said, he stayed at OZCC on the Sunday night until very late, with a red eye midnight flight to catch, to ensure every single congoer who had come to see him got his autograph come hell or high water.
Shaming him because he doesn’t match your Hollywood body standards is laughable at best. He spent time out of work to look after his daughter, who is just as beautiful a soul as he is. He spent years of inactivity trying to get better so he could return to the convention circuit. Worst of all, he felt the need to apologise for being HUMAN.
He doesn’t have to apologise FOR ANYTHING. Least of all your overblown standards on his beauty.
This! How people can be so mean as to say things like that to him is beyond me, and it makes me so sad. He’s a wonderful person, and it shows. He’s a beautiful person inside and out. I’m so sorry people make him feel that he has to apologize! His appearance is just one part of him, everything that makes him awesome is in his head and heart.

what’s really amazing to me is that people are so afraid of body hair on women that even in a shaving commercial they won’t show a hairy leg. they demonstrate the razor by shaving a hairless leg. they show their product being completely useless instead of showing leg hair. it’s just crazy
