The worst part of the Deadpool movie is now people are talking to Rob. Liefield like his opinions matter.

In a study of children aged 2-5, parents interrupted their daughters more than their sons, and fathers were more likely to talk simultaneously with their children than mothers were. Jennifer Coates says: “It seems that fathers try to control conversation more than mothers… and both parents try to control conversation more with daughters than with sons. The implicit message to girls is that they are more interruptible and that their right to speak is less than that of boys.”

Girls and boys’ differing understanding of when to talk, when to be quiet, what is polite and so on, has a visible impact on the dynamics of the classroom. Just as men dominate the floor in business meetings, academic conferences and so on, so little boys dominate in the classroom - and little girls let them.

Working with children for over a decade, this is something I’ve noticed, actually. And for the majority, the little girls in my class and my co-worker’s classes all sit quietly and listen MUCH better than the boys do. Most boys don’t care to be quiet and sit still. And I don’t think this is an attribute of boys being “rowdier” or more “hyper” - believe me, the girls are JUST as off the wall as the boys if you aren’t telling them not to. It must be a learned behavior, and it must be enforced more with the girls so they know they can’t get away with it. You have no idea how many times in my career I’ve heard “boys will be boys,” and smiling parents as they tell me with a laugh, sorry, their son is “wild” and a “handful” as they introduce him to the class.

And that’s how you do sexism.  That’s how it’s so effectively trained into every single citizen and indoctrinated as normal and right.

I don’t know if anyone else thinks like this, but I was super disappointed that May was able to beat Ward so easily sparring and in battle. His scores and ranking are second only to Romanoff and as much as I love May, she’s no Black Widow and shouldn’t have been a clear winner in any of their fights

I thought he was just behind Romanoff on a few things, not ALL the fighting ever?

In 1.01 Hill assessed Ward and gave him the highest marks since Romanov in Espionage. It’s also worth pointing out that Romanov hasn’t been in SHIELD as long as either May or Coulson, it was in fact Barton who brought her into SHIELD. We have no way of comparing May or Romanov, especially as for the last few years May has been in Administration. 
Fun fact: in the promotional material for the show, Coulson says that May has more black belts than Romanov. 

May knows Ward’s weaknesses, though. His combat assessment is in his file. That’s a huge advantage to anyone who knows how to exploit them.

She also had to look them up to know Ward was good enough to help her take down Phil, who might have been compromised by alien biology and could have been very hard to stop.

Fun Fact: (Since we’re using weird logic to validate shit) Ward was controlled by a part of the Beserker staff. May can handle a whole Beserker Staff twice and not let it control her.
If we go by that logic May > Ward. So IDK about other, but if we based it on this factoid I’d place my bets on May and go get some tea and come back to collect my winnings.
May is no Black Widow yes, but also has anyone considered that maybe she’s better than Black Widow?

Or, even, that Melinda and Natasha aren’t in competition, they’re equally good from different angles?
IDK, I feel like this kind of argument gets dangerously close to “who could win in a fight, Batman or Superman,” while ignoring that what makes the fight interesting is why they’re fighting and what’s at stake.
And in this case, what we see is that Ward was fighting for a cause he didn’t particularly believe in, and May was fighting to protect the world. Ward wanted to impress the supervillain who stockholmed him. May wanted to save her team.
By both comic book and real world logic, I don’t see how this is even a question.

Hijacking this thread because “highest marks in espionage” HAHA. I get it now. I was annoyed then because we thought they were trying to say he was SUPER SPESHUL. But really, they were just hinting that he could be a double agent. 
Plus espionage doesn’t help you kick people in the face. May is clearly the queen at that. I’m not sure why we’re discussing this.

Lady Liberators Fancast: Black Widow (Scarlet Johansson) puts together a team powerful enough to capture and unmask the mysterious Red Hulk. Featuring Lupita Nyong’o as Storm, Gwendoline Christie as Valkyrie and
Rinko Kikuchi as Wasp.

I’d like to add She-Hulk to this (since she led the most recent team) but couldn’t decide on an actress. Thoughts?

It’s never, never, never the woman’s fault. No man has a right to raise a hand to a woman. No means no. […] The one regret I have is we call it domestic violence as if it’s a domesticated cat. It is the most vicious form of violence there is, because not only the physical scars are left, the psychological scars that are left. This whole culture for so long has put the onus on the woman. What were you wearing? What did you say? What did you do to provoke? That is never the appropriate question.

Fandom, I don’t understand you. Agent Carter is supposed to be a show about a woman working in an all-male field, and you say you’re excited for the feminism. Then when the casting starts coming in and (SHOCKER!) everyone she works with is a guy, you say we should boycott it.

It literally cannot be a show about a woman breaking down doors if there are already tons of women in SHIELD.

And, in any case, we know there is at least one other female regular whose casting hasn’t been announced yet.

Oh god dammit.

Not quite sure I’m following what’s going on, so tell me, what’s so bad about this?

Everyone chill out! It’ll be fine. Just give it to Jim Carrey. He’ll be amusing like he used to be. He’ll use it to hook up with Cameron Diaz. No big deal. BUT we need to keep it away from this guy. Like, for reals.

May 1, 2015 - Avengers: Age of Ultron
July 17, 2015 - Ant-Man
May 6, 2016 - Captain America 3
July 8, 2016 - Untitled Marvel Studios Film (Rumored to be Doctor Strange)
May 5, 2017 - Untitled Marvel Studios Film
July 28, 2017 - Untitled Marvel Studios Film Guardians of the Galaxy 2
November 3, 2017 - Untitled Marvel Studios Film
May 4, 2018 - Untitled Marvel Studios Film (Rumored to be Avengers 3)
July 6, 2018 - Untitled Marvel Studios Film
November 2, 2018 - Untitled Marvel Studios Film
May 3, 2019 - Untitled Marvel Studios Film (Rumored to be Avengers 3 also)

So… that’s all we learned.

ETA: Because now we have sources reporting that July 8, 2016 is indeed DR. STRANGE. While this is not unexpected it is interesting because Feige always said Strange would be the Iron Man of Phase 4. Yet we’ll be seeing him in Phase 3—opening the possibility that he’d be in Avengers 3.
