Sorry, I find her REALLY FUCKING COOL!
This is everything I have ever wanted in a photo set ever.
I know there’s been much ado about the owner of Abercrombie and Fitch criticizing ugly people while many here consider him to be ugly. I could go on about whether this is or isn’t hypocritical on either front and about the subjective meaning of beauty and all that but I want to address something I feel is more important and that’s the comparison of the man in question to an orc.
Most of the memes resulting from this controversy have shown Gothmog alongside their C.E.O., and I want to talk about why that’s wrong.
Gothmog served in Sauron’s army during the War of the Ring, as the lieutenant of Minas Morgul, second-in-command to the Witch-king of Angmar, lord of the nine Nazgûl. He took command of the forces of Morgul during the Battle of the Pelennor Fields after the Witch-king was slain by Éowyn. That makes him a veteran and I don’t care what side he fought for, the point is he fought for what he believed in and did so with exceptional nobility. It was he who called for Grond to break down the gates of Minas Tirith, it was he who was nearly crushed when the white city launched chunks of massive stone on his location, moving only at the final moment to survive. All with a tumor on his head the size of a grapefruit. And tumblr has made him the standard of ugliness.
I don’t give a damn about Abercrombie guy, but to reduce one of if not the greatest of orcs to an ugly joke just to mock the guy in unfair and ignorant.
That was truly the best comment I’ve ever read.
Yay! I will protect you from comparisons to shitty people my lovely monster!
- heterophobia is not the solution to homophobia
- skinnyshaming is not the solution to fatshaming
- “reverse racism” is not the solution to racism
- misandry is not the solution to misogyny
don’t fight fire with fire, it’s called “equality” for a reason!!!
Thank you, sums it up nicely.
On a scale of 1 to the War of the Worlds broadcast how misunderstood is your joke.
a modest proposal
Fun fact: Dustin Hoffman and Bob Hoskins decided secretly that they’d play Hook and Smee as a gay couple. When Spielberg, the director, found out, he was furious.
I just think it’s hilarious.
OH MY GOD
This is the second time this has showed up on my dash this week. Now I have to watch it.
