best thing i learned working with and learning about kids: when they do shit like this, especially to something they themselves use and enjoy, leave it there for as long as possible. let them return to the fun thing over and over again so that it sinks in that the thing they did was wrong, they ruined something, and now they can’t have fun because of it and they should never do it again. it teaches them consequence of action and cautiousness.

i did this with a 3-year-old kid i babysat who filled his playstation with peanut butter before i got there, just every time he went back to it and asked why it’s not working, i opened it and pointed to the peanut butter stains and said “you did that” and he says “yeah”, “will it work like that?” “…no”, and when he got it and promised to never put anything but games into a game machine again, his parents bought another and he kept his promise. it works, even at that age.

this was a long and unnecessary rant but so many times i’ve seen parents IMMEDIATELY replace their kids’ toys/electronics that they destroy over and over again and i’m just like NO THEY’RE NOT LEARNING ANYTHING THAT WAY 

they also don’t learn from being thrown into fires

yeah but they’re quieter that way

Why Rarity?
So often in children’s programming we are presented with the “Beautiful Female Archetype”. She’s got the looks! She’s popular! Everyone likes her!… but we, as an audience, are persuaded to either hate her or be annoyed by her, because she is mean, spiteful, and perhaps even ditzy. 
 
The message this sends to young girls and boys is “If she is attractive, she is a challenge.” The pretty girl can never be your friend, never love you, never be anything but a rival. We should hate people we don’t even know if we perceive them as a attractive, because they are therefore a threat to us in some way. And by association, if a woman is interested in superficial things like fashion and beauty, she must be vain.
 
Except that isn’t true. We’re multidimensional people! We can be interested in fashion and human rights! And math! And geography! And sales at Sephora! And just because a person likes to get dressed up does not mean they’ll look down on you for choosing to do otherwise. A real friend would love you for who you are, not what you look like.
 
When I first started watching My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, I was totally taken aback by Rarity. Here is a female character that I can finally relate to. Rarity is the element of Generosity. She is the fuel that makes the fire burn. She genuinely wants to see her friends do well, and she’s always happy help them reach their goals. She’s blunt, clever, and nothing makes her feel sweller than helping others learn to feel good about themselves. And it’s so rare that we see such a well-rounded character in so called children’s television. I’m so, so thankful for her.

Steve Rogers did, in fact, realize that something was off when he saw the outline of the woman’s odd bra (a push-up bra, he would later learn), but being an officer and a gentleman, he said that it was the game that gave the future away.

 (via)

No, see, this scene is just amazing. The costume department deserves so many kudos for this, it’s unreal, especially given the fact that they pulled off Peggy pretty much flawlessly.

1) Her hair is completely wrong for the 40’s. No professional/working woman  would have her hair loose like that. Since they’re trying to pass this off as a military hospital, Steve would know that she would at least have her hair carefully pulled back, if maybe not in the elaborate coiffures that would have been popular.

2) Her tie? Too wide, too long. That’s a man’s tie, not a woman’s. They did, however, get the knot correct as far as I can see - that looks like a Windsor.

3) That. Bra. There is so much clashing between that bra and what Steve would expect (remember, he worked with a bunch of women for a long time) that it has to be intentional. She’s wearing a foam cup, which would have been unheard of back then. It’s also an exceptionally old or ill-fitting bra - why else can you see the tops of the cups? No woman would have been caught dead with misbehaving lingerie like that back then, and the soft satin cups of 40’s lingerie made it nearly impossible anyway. Her breasts are also sitting at a much lower angle than would be acceptable in the 40’s.

Look at his eyes. He knows by the time he gets to her hair that something is very, very wrong.

so what you are saying is S.H.E.I.L.D. has a super shitty costume division….

Nope, Nick Fury totally did this on purpose.

There’s no knowing what kind of condition Steve’s in, or what kind of person he really is, after decades of nostalgia blur the reality and the long years in the ice (after a plane crash and a shitload of radiation) do their work. (Pre-crash Steve is in lots of files, I’m sure. Nick Fury does not trust files.) So Fury instructs his people to build a stage, and makes sure that the right people put up some of the wrong cues.

Maybe the real Steve’s a dick, or just an above-average jock; maybe he had a knack for hanging out with real talent. Maybe he hit his head too hard on the landing and he’s not gonna be Captain anymore. On the flipside, if he really is smart, then putting him in a standard, modern hospital room and telling him the truth is going to have him clamming up and refusing to believe a goddamn thing he hears for a really long time.

The real question here is, how long it does it take for the man, the myth, the legend to notice? What does he do about it? How long does he wait to get his bearings, confirm his suspicions, and gather information before attempting busting out?

Turns out the answer’s about forty-five seconds.

#STEVE YOU RECKLESS FUCK#’we need a plan’ my ass#how about ‘break everything until I’m outside and then figure shit out from there’#A+ steve you win (tags via bluandorange)

Cackling over all the excellent meta
