This scene. This scene was def. when I fell fully in love with this show. I wasn’t 100% there with the previous episodes, and this moment was def. when this went from ‘a good new show’ to an absolute favorite.
Because this was just so true to life. Gross ass misogynist dudes are fucking everywhere. You overhear this BS all the damn time. I honestly can’t say how often I am forced to listen in on this sort of shit on the subway.
And there will be times I am having a shitty ass day and I get on the subway and I hear those dudes, I hear this gross dehumanizing bullshit, and I want to cry and scream and school their asses and then I just… feel the anger and motivation drain way and think “what’s the point” and just sit there, my faith in anything just depleted and it’s something that happens so often, and is so familiar, that small loss in my faith in humanity that happens when I overhear these horrible conversations.
And it’s one of those microaggressions you really can’t complain to anyone about. Because in the eyes of society you really aren’t supposed to care as much as you do. After all, they are just talking. You don’t know them. They aren’t even talking about you. Why should you get involved? Why does listening to them hurt as much as it does?
And here…. here we have a magical girl on the edge. She’s fighting for the sake of humanity and her faith in herself has been shook up. She gets on a train and overhears some dehumanizing sexist BS… and she goes through exactly what I always do. Only where I only imagine confronting them, she actually does it. She has nothing left to lose and so she gets up and demands those assholes remember that’s an actual human being they are talking about. A person with feelings all her own.
And then she sees in them what I fear, the reason I don’t confront them because I hate that moment of revelation - they really don’t care. They honestly don’t care.
And in that moment she loses her faith in humanity in full. THIS is what we are fighting for? THIS is supposed to be worth my pain and suffering?
And then she kills them.
And it’s a moment of catharsis, they were shit to begin with, not worth the air they breathed… but they were still human beings. She killed people. And that causes her full break from herself and leads her into despair and oh gosh this scene. This show.
This alone, this positing of dehumanizing sexist asses talking on a train as the true dredge of humanity, an example of the worst humanity has to offer… it’s just so real.
tips for flirting: carve your number into a potato and roll it towards eligible females you wish to court with
the fact that this would work on me has me concerned
Fun fact: Humans are deuterostomes, which means that when they develop in the womb the anus forms before any other opening. Which basically means at one point you were nothing but an asshole.
some people never develop beyond this stage
I just saw someone refer to a nap as “horizontal life pausing” and I am adopting this immediately.
instead of getting their period girls should just get to sleep for 5 days straight every month everyone wins

my favorite thing about european history is that henry viii started his own religion just so he could divorce his wife
