I just got finished reading a forum that sought to defend hating on Thor being a woman now via its violating the mythos, it’d offend those who believe in norse mythology, its practicioners, ect. Ect.
Alright, I just wanna point out how ass backwards that idea is having actually read the eddas and myths. Lets begin:
Mjonlr isn’t some sentient magic weapon thats picky about who holds it, its just fucking heavy. Marvel has some bullshit about being worthy that they got from god knows where.
Real thor Has a belt and gauntlet to enhance his already fearsome strength to even allow him to pick up mjonlr. I’d also like to point out that male marvel thor lacks these, female thor is visibly wearing them, though I doubt they’ll show up as such. So already female thor is closer to actual thor.
Thor is a ginger with a huge shoulder length ginger fro’. These guys are blonde, sleek, and have straight hair.
Winged/Horned helmets are from the romantic period, vikings, and thus their gods, never wore or made these. In fact, at the height of viking empires, helmets were simple and crude.
Wasn’t alive then, but pretty sure norse gods don’t sound like 17th century englishmen.
Thor would drink literally a lakes worth mead and wrestle frost giants. He also had his own hall and doesn’t live at his dad’s place like marvel thor.
So honestly, some mother fuckers need to crack a book before they spout stupid shit about fictional characters that barely resemble the myths they are based on. Honestly, as someone who actually practices Asatru, if they wanna make their thor a chick, that’s they last thing I’m tripping about inaccuracy wise and isn’t even an issue.
In fact, did you know that the Vikings were actually big on womens rights had better rape laws than we do, didn’t discriminate them from holding positions of power and fucking even fought along side their women? That gods took female form and goddeses took male form time to time?
Something to think about when an ancient “barbaric” race had better equality than we enjoy.
The vikings were more feminist than we think (although, I can only suppose that they still lived under a patriarchy). The women did have a lot of power, were very independent and were the ones to wear the keys to the houses.
Also, the versions of the Nordic myths we hear today are based on Victor Rydbergs writings. Rydberg was misogynistic nationalist, and rewrote many of the myths so that the goddesses would be more submissive, less independent and had almost no sexual liberty (while in the original stories, they had a lot).

I have watched the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy just focusing on Legolas. And it is pure gold.
Orlando Bloom is a gift to mankind
I will now watch the trilogy and purely focus on the elfboy. Just because this gifset makes it clear that this is a thing that should be done.
Awww, you tried so hard, but unfortunately I can’t hear you over the sound of my debt-free college degree and massive disposable income.

No you don’t understand
"We’re gonna buy you the nicest dick in Manhattan." sounds like a sentence Tony must have definitely said
