If Mikasa was male, her traumatic past, distant personality, and her devotion to Eren would probably make her the most popular character in the fandom. And pairing her with Eren would be touted as nearly canon. But Mikasa isn’t male and instead she’s treated as Eren’s stalker and I don’t know, that really bothers me.
SHE SO WOULD. IT’S LIKE IF PETRA WAS MALE MORE PEOPLE WOULD SHIP THEM WITH LEVI
Lupita Nyong’o wins an Oscar for portraying a real life slave, and the first thing she did was thank Patsy for her inspiration.
Jared Leto wins an Oscar for portraying a trans woman, and doesn’t mention trans women at all.
I think the point makes itself.
He actually did thank the trans community but Tumblr is so desperate to hate him they are spreading false rumours about him being a rapist.
I think that speaks for itself.
Seriously. This just disgusts me. He portrayed the role with dignity and the respect it deserved. He clearly holds the trans community in high enough regard to play the part extremely well. Not because he was paid to. He could have gotten any job. He wanted to tell this story.
This website makes me sick. No matter what, someone is always wrong. There were people crying because Jennifer Lawrence didn’t win Best Supporting Actress over Lupita. But if someone other than her had won over Lupita, it no doubt would have been “racist”. Lupita deserved to win because she DESERVED TO WIN. Her portrayal of Patsy was both inspiring and heartbreaking. She was phenomenal. Jared Leto deserved to win because he represented a “minority” (as seen by mainstream society) to the best of his ability out of respect.
I don’t think anything will ever be good enough for people.
