The average age in Boston in the early 1770s was 14. More than half the population of Boston was under 21 in the events leading up to the American Revolution.

It really puts everything into a completely different context, doesn’t it?

The Harry Potter movies added many scenes that I disagree with.

imagine steve rogers finding out people were saying that girls and women shouldn’t wear captain america merchandise and uploading a youtube video of him that consists of like seven minutes of him reading the stupid comments out loud in silly voices and laughing

The thing that I hate about thoughts like this, is he probably wouldn’t. He’s from the 40’s, so his view on women would be waaay different. Like, he wouldn’t work with Black Widow, he’d tell her to stay in the back or go make a sandwich or something like that….

Haha! Ha. Wow. Ok, nope! No. I have no idea why you’d think that since every possible piece of canon, from pretty much any universe where he’s not evil or a silly parody, contradicts you. 

 In the comics and in the movies during the 40’s he worked with an integrated team called the Howling Commandos. In some universes it was racially integrated, in some universes there were mutants in his team also. When women would show up as spies, nurses, secretaries, or secret agents, he’d be polite to them, plus there’s how in his actual recent origin movie he adored Peggy Carter and thought she was extremely capable.  In all the movies and comics and in cartoons he’s depicted as extremely respectful to women and affirmative of their abilities to help fight in the war and as superheroes.

In the very first 1960’s comic issue of the Avengers, he never tells Janet Van Dyne, the Wasp, to get back to the kitchen. I don’t think he even quibbles over her inclusion in the team—she’s actually who names them.

Since the 1940’s, in comics written since the 1940’s, he’s pretty consistently and universally written as a guy who treats women and racial minorities and aliens with the respect due their profession and skill. He’s teamed up with X-men and mutants like Storm and the Scarlet Witch and Spiderwoman, agents and military women like Maria Hill and Sharon Carter and the Black Widow and the Wasp, and even businesswomen like Pepper Pots.

In conclusion: Steve Rogers is a super respectful badass and I love him and he doesn’t have any truck with sexism, the end. 

Now imagine Steve reading tumblr user circe-thorn’s comment above in a mocking voice on youtube, though.

easy there henry

whos henry what thef uck?

*faint laughter from Britian*

Might woulda been clearer if they’d said “easy there, Henry VIII.”

There have, after all, been a lot of people named Henry over the course of History
