Can we just stop and talk about this for a minute?
Thresh doesn’t make an alliance. Thresh doesn’t waste time liking her. Thresh knows that either he must kill her or she must kill him for one of them to win.
But this is the only way he can repay her for protecting Rue when he couldn’t. It’s the only way he can repay her for honoring Rue when he couldn’t. He honors her by sparing her friend, the girl who would have died for her.
The revolution really doesn’t start with Katniss.
It starts with Rue.
SOMEBODY FINALLY SAID IT
a ‘somebody finally said it’ post I can get behind
the hunger games aren’t amazingly unique or flawless or anything but I think katniss as a character is very important and i think the media misunderstands
we aren’t in it for the cute boys. we’re in it for katniss. thousands of young girls were introduced to an introverted, angry girl born into poverty and watched her become the savior of the world and the media doesn’t seem to understand that she, as a character, is important to girls. not who she dates, but her

What I like about Deadpool is that he consistently gets labelled as a ‘bad’ person, because he’s clumsy, has a lot of collateral damage, is mouthy, etc..

He’s a rape victim, and abuse victim, a cancer survivor, and refuses to hurt kids. He acts crazy (and yes, he’s quite insane as well) to cope with the incredible psychological burden he has to bear.
He’s not one dimensional, and he’s sort of what I know a lot of people would be like if they were put in his position. He’s an encrible example fo humanity.

You know, Peeta’s unconventional masculinity is as relevant for traditional gender subversion in The Hunger Games as Katniss’s unconventional femininity.
It’s a bit annoying to see everyone and their mother praising Katniss for being such a unique action female hero, and…
