#completely convinced marvel just finds the actual characters to play their parts

Marvel’s casting department cannot be beat. Literally all of the actors are their characters.

"The truth is, everyone likes to look down on someone. If your favorites are all avant-garde writers who throw in Sanskrit and German, you can look down on everyone. If your favorites are all Oprah Book Club books, you can at least look down on mystery readers. Mystery readers have sci-fi readers. Sci-fi can look down on fantasy. And yes, fantasy readers have their own snobbishness. I’ll bet this, though: in a hundred years, people will be writing a lot more dissertations on Harry Potter than on John Updike. Look, Charles Dickens wrote popular fiction. Shakespeare wrote popular fiction - until he wrote his sonnets, desperate to show the literati of his day that he was real artist. Edgar Allan Poe tied himself in knots because no one realized he was a genius. The core of the problem is how we want to define “literature”. The Latin root simply means “letters”. Those letters are either delivered - they connect with an audience - or they don’t. For some, that audience is a few thousand college professors and some critics. For others, its twenty million women desperate for romance in their lives. Those connections happen because the books successfully communicate something real about the human experience. Sure, there are trashy books that do really well, but that’s because there are trashy facets of humanity. What people value in their books - and thus what they count as literature - really tells you more about them than it does about the book."

How Gender Expectations Harm Our Daughters and Sons: http://www.buzzfeed.com/kevintang/how-rigid-gender-expectations-harm-our-daughters-and-sons

The video really shows that we have been forced into rigid gender roles ever since the moment we were born into this world. We are told that we should do this and that, or we could not do this and that, by virtue of being born with one genital or the other. We don’t even have the luxury to choose our assigned gender. This is what we’ve got to change. Gender roles are not all bad, as long as you really feel comfortable with it, and it wasn’t forced on you by people who have no idea what it’s like to be you, to live the life you’re living.

Girls, be brave. Be smart. Be independent. Be good mothers if you want to. Travel the world, if you feel like it. Boys, do cry. Tell the people you love how much you love them before it’s too late. Be emotional. Be good fathers, if you choose to. Marry your career, if that’s what you want. But more importantly: be a good person, no matter what gender you identify as.

Let’s start small and stop saying things like “you should be pretty” to girls and “don’t cry” to boys, whether they are your friends, lovers, cousins, or whatever. Break the vicious cycle.

I’ve taken the pledge to use my voice to challenge society’s rigid representations of gender at therepresentationproject.org. Have you?
