Used to love Alien when I was a kid. I have absolutely no problem with films that have no women in them, I much prefer films that don’t try to pander to groups. Basically I’d just write all the characters and then just cast people at random, it could be like Dark Angel where they have barcodes instead of names, or some allocation other than numerical because they’d find a way to imply bias in numbering be it higher or lower even if there is no pattern in identification. They’d still find something to bitch about.
It would be entirely for fun. And a social experiment.
I agree, and thats why writing Ripley as a gender neutral character then happening to cast an actress to play them worked so well.
If you write out your entire script, with placeholder names, then flip a coin on gender and see how everything falls down, you’ll probably get a pretty good set of characters.
That’s pretty much how I allocate gender anyway, with no biases from either character, which is probably why I’m so crap at writing existing characters, having to take into account the protectiveness of men towards women or defensiveness or paranoia of women against men. The “you don’t think women can handle it?” type comments. Which is another reason Ripley worked so well.
Of course, then you get the feminists who always say there is no difference at all between men and women somehow saying she’s just a man with boobs. Or miss male character as Sarkeesian calls them.
Hello all, so this is my dad, and he’s planning on cosplaying as Rescue Captain America at San Diego Comic-Con this year.
Here’s the problem: He’s 53 and he thinks he might be too old to cosplay. In addition, he thinks he’s not buff/handsome enough to pull it off a Captain America costume. So even though he’s put a ton of work into his cosplay, he’s thinking about not taking any of it with us.
I’ve set out to prove him wrong, so tumblr, please help me show this retired Air Force officer that he makes a great Captain America!

Sleeping Beauty Backgrounds
Hand-painted in oil paint and inspired by medieval paintings and tapestries, specifically the feel of “The Lady and the Unicorn”…gah. Have more beautiful backgrounds ever existed?
"Do you agree that the planet Venus is warm because it has a lot of carbon dioxide in its atmosphere? And when I say ‘warm,’ I mean ‘hot enough to melt lead on the surface.’"
