While this thread has died down, people keep reporting comments asking about this, so I just wanted to reiterate that using words like "looney," "insane," and "idiotic"—any words referring to intelligence or mental illness—as insults or an otherwise pejorative sense are considered ableist and against the site rules.

please try not to use the word "dumb" here as it's considered ableist

(personally, I'm glad that I don't go deeper than "reblog pictures and bad jokes," but for people who want an active fandom, I wish tumblr facilitated that and not falling down a drama rabbit hole)

Again, please don't use words like "idiotic" or "idiocy" as they are considered ableist and against the site rules.

Please don’t use “insane” as an insult as it’s against the site rules.

I like this thread, though, and would just like to note that Marvel/Disney gets money/material support for these movies from the government for the low, low cost of Pentagon script approval, and even when they don’t work with the Pentagon, the “torture is good, war is noble, we never lose” narrative has been so pervasive for decades that they don’t consider otherwise! So, the portrayal of torture as effective and necessary, or used as a hyperbolic punishment disconnected from reality, from Zero Dark Thirty to Marvel, is a very deliberate choice.

You know how every once in a while you remember that Donald Trump is actually president and are simultaneously deflated, miserable, and angry? That does not prepare you for the bitter suckerpunch of watching an episode of Star Trek called “Storm Front” and seeing a split second of Hillary smiling and waving as a sign that all is right with the universe once again. It’s like a giant middle finger from the past.
