So I was in a party store the other day.
It had been a while since I’d actually been in one, so I’d forgotten how separated and disgustingly, stereotypically gender-specific the ‘boys things’ and ‘girls things’ were. All the ‘boys things’ are blue and black and superheros and firemen. All the ‘girls things’ are pink and purple and sparkles and princesses.
But I tried not to let it bother me too much.
But then, I had an extra minute or two, so I was just browsing around, and all this Avengers stuff catches my eye (in the ‘boy’s section’, of course). In that first moment, my fangirl self is elated, because there’s actually some pretty cool stuff.
But then I look closer, and… No. NO.
i give up on you, society
(I assume that they only show those three (plus Hulk on some) on the main plates because they’re the ones that have had their own movies and are thus more main-character-y than Black Widow and Hawkeye.)Source: itsgermanforrevenge
