You know, I’ve watched that movie a billion times, and I had never really noticed that Perry himself was choking back tears in that scene. That man was fucking terrified. But he stayed. He stayed with her until the end and I’m just

Okay y’all these headcanon posts are getting OUT OF FUCKING CONTROL.

Some of the shit I see come across my dash is like:

STEVE IS SUCH AN AMAZING FEMINIST Y’ALL HE DIGS WOMEN THAT CAN FIGHT AND HE WAS SURROUNDED BY USO GIRLS AND OF COURSE HE WAS BEST FRIENDS WITH ALL OF THEM SO HE SUPPORTS WOMENS RIGHTS OBVIOUSLY BECAUSE YEAH AND HE’S LIKE THE MOST AMAZING PERSON IN THE WORLD HE OFFERED TO LET A NEIGHBOR USE HIS WASHING MACHINE I MEAN WHO DOES THAT NO ONE IS THAT GENEROUS NO ONE LOVES WOMEN MORE NO ONE SUPPORTS WOMENS RIGHTS MORE HE IS THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME AND EXTRAPOLATIONS GALORE EXCUSE ME WHILE I FART MYSELF TO THE MOON

I know that whenever I flirt with a girl and offer to let her use my washing machine for the price of a cup of coffee, I’m totally being a feminist.

(The movies say *nothing* about his mother except that she was a nurse who died of TB and Steve was sad and alone, okay. He loved her, and I’m sure we can extrapolate a lot based on the fact that he loved her, and I’m totally in favour of Steve being a feminist, but yeah. I don’t see how Steve’s somehow ~moar feminist than, say, Nick Fury.)

I have to say the whole “Steve Rogers is a beacon of feminism!” thing comes across as… strange at times. While I haven’t seen anything stretched out as him being a ~feminist to the point just for offering Sharon his laundry machine, I did appreciate the message it sent out — that he backed off immediately when she turned him down.

Now, Steve is obviously a good guy who genuinely respects and loves women and all, but he has also internalized some sexist attitudes in his own behavior. Sometimes it’s subtle, like when he questions Peggy what’s a beautiful dame like her doing in the army. Sometimes it’s just outright offensive, as evidenced in the scene when he tried to deflect his makeout session with Private Lorraine, by bringing up his own assumptions about her sexual relations with Howard. I once wrote a bit on that and it got reblogged around for quite a while, and someone literally retagged it as “whoa, take your supreme feminism and back off” as in they believe Steve is not in the wrong there.

I’d trust someone like Steve to step up and do his part — I mean, if we see him actually being put in an situation where he should speak up against misogynism, I definitely believe he would. But yeah, holding him up on some kind of feminist pedestal is just not on my radar at all. With the exception of Tony, he really is more or less the same as the rest of the Avengers when it comes to respecting women.
