"It’s just a prank, calm down!"
When did harassing women become a prank? You can clearly see that this girl is trying to laugh it off even though she’s uncomfortable with it, and that is not okay. If I’m a feminazi for pointing this out, then so be it, I’m not going to tolerate this shit.

Hilarious but. Not a real cop.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMY WINEHOUSE! (SEPTEMBER 14, 1983) - (JULY 23, 2011)
I don’t think your ability to fight has anything to do with how big you are. It’s to do with how much anger is in you.
I lost a follower and if it’s for my post defending my opinions and mentioning how stupid this website can be? Then good
This website has phony fucks in it. And if you’re not of the Tumblr elite then you’re wrong; no matter what. Even if it is your own opinion that harms no one; you are wrong.
This was ad-libbed by the voice actor, Craig Ferguson and they chose to keep it in because they loved it. Kids won’t get it but adults will be thinking “did he just imply what I think he implied?”
And later the director confirmed it.
DeBlois revealed that, the reason Gobber never got married, is because he is homosexual. This makes him the first homosexual character of the franchise, and even DreamWorks itself.
This is the worst representation I’ve ever seen when will we actually get queer characters without having to deduce it from like 0.3 seconds of screen time and a vague hint
the worst? are we forgetting..
i always thought, because he looks directly at hiccup when he says it, that he meant “because he doesn’t want to deal with kids like hiccup” ?? but yeah this is cool too
Yeah thats what i thought too, it kinda makes more sense
Sorry but how is this the ‘worst’ representation? A queer character whose storyline doesn’t revolve around being queer?!
It’s fantastic representation- it shows that there is more to Gobber as a character than simply just being gay and that doesn’t need to be re-asserted at all. It’s like a kind of ‘He’s gay, so what. We’re moving on.” The line treats it like its no big deal which is actually A+ representation bc it shouldn’t be a big deal.
The first few comments on this post made me very angry, so I have a few more things to say. And I’m not going to put them under a read more, because I’m frickin up to here with these kinds of people and I need everyone to know how pissed off I am tbh.
1. “0.3 seconds of screen time”?
I’m sorry? Do you want 30+ minutes dedicated to the fact that Gobber is gay? Have you watched the first or the second film? Gobber is (arguably) THE most important character apart from Hiccup in the first film. Most of the things he says are the very reason that Hiccup develops and does things which advance the plot of the film. And yet, according to you, that doesn’t count, because he only mentions that he’s gay ONCE. As if it’s not a BIG DEAL. How AWFUL.
As elusivist said, what exactly is wrong with the fact that his homosexuality is not drawn attention to?
2. “Actual queer characters”?
Excuse my french, but what the FUCK?
Does a queer character need to wear the scarf of sexual preference around their neck to be considered an actual queer character? Do they need to have a love interest of their preferred gender/sex to be an actual queer character? Do they need to stand up formally in front of their family and explain that they are a lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender/queer person to be an actual queer character? Does there need to be a footnote in the credits of the movie which says “Craig Fergusson, playing Gobber: an actual queer character.”
WHAT DO THEY NEED TO DO?
The answer is, obviously, none of these things.
To be an actual queer character, they need to a) be queer, and b) be a character.
Gobber was the best friend and advisor to Stoick. Gobber is a father figure to Hiccup and a mentor to the rest of Hiccup’s friends and probably many other generations of Berk’s teens too. And before all that, Gobber is a character who’s funny, loveable, loyal, brave and intelligent.
On an unrelated note, he’s gay, and he makes a completely harmless, passing, humourous hint at it. And now, because it it was confirmed by the director and voice actor, and because some of us can take a fuckin hint, we know. It’s canon. Therefore he is an actual queer character. He doesn’t need to flaunt it for it to be true.
3. Dumbledore? Seriously?
I’m not even going to bother with trying to explain this to you. But here’s a spot-on explanation by takealookatyourlife which partly inspired some of the points I’ve made, and sums the whole argument up pretty damn well, because it was a counter argument to an exasperatingly similar point to your own [x]:
Gay people are just normal people. We are not told about any of the Hogwarts professors love lives, other than Snape, and it would be completely out of character for Dumbledore to walk around telling everyone about his sexuality.
Did you want her to make him dress in glittery platform boots, a crop top, and decorate his office in rainbow flags to make it more obvious for you? Would that be enough of a stereotype to appease you people? Or what? Please tell me. I’d like to know how you think a gay character is supposed to be portrayed.
And did you miss the Grindelwald chapters in the ‘actual books’? Or was that also not obvious enough for you? Did Dumbledore need to whisper “always” wistfully in order for you to connect that he had romantic feelings for Grindelwald? Maybe you are American and need them to gaze longingly into each others eyes with awkward close ups of their fingers almost grazing each other that Hollywood thinks means ‘true love’.
It didn’t fit into his relationship to Harry to ever say “I’m gay”, and so it was not stated explicitly (you might have noticed the book was told from Harry Potter’s perspective).
The point is though, that he is a homosexual, well respected, powerful, and very loved wizard- and his sexuality doesn’t matter because no one else thinks it matters. a.k.a. no one care that he loves men, and that is wonderful.
In conclusion, STOP. Just… stop. Every time you complain about things that don’t need complaining about, disaster falls. Can you not see that we have bigger problems? Winter is almost here and we have an entire fandom to please.
Shut. The fuck. Up.
Thank you finally someone says it
THIS EXACTLY. PERFECT.
Classic tumblr. Make a joke out of my add on to a post so I look like the bad guy. When in fact I can have my own opinions and so can you. I didn’t even encroach on your beliefs or anyone else’s. You didn’t even read my post.
