Aliens was a revelation to me when I was a kid.
As soon as the actual action started, what immediately struck me was that every woman onscreen had her shit absolutely together, and every man (with the exception of Corporal Hicks, Bishop and Apone) was a complete walking clusterfuck.
Moreover, as in this .gifed scene, the narrative itself made it explicit that the only way the men were going to survive was by emulating the women.
And even though I was still just a dipshit kid when I first saw this, I didn’t pull on an MRA fedora and whine about my gender being portrayed in such an unflattering light, because even then, I immediately recognized, “This is what it’s like for women to watch literally every other sci-fi action film. Well played, movie.”
Don’t mistake my kindness for weakness. I’ll choke you with the same hand I fed you with.

This is the perfect visual metaphor for heterosexuality.
I really can’t get over what a good metaphor this is.
they could’ve just made them square but that’d probably be too gay
but then how would the dude be in the lady’s space, expropriating her value? D:
Guys, this is obviously literally meant as a metaphor for the depressingly common dynamics of most heterosexual relationships, and indeed of society in general.
the ‘hers’ cup only appears to have a normal shape when paired with the ‘his’ cup. on its own, the cup would appear to be missing something. why is heterosexuality so terrible?
This has to literally be a metaphor for heterosexual relationships. There is no way someone made such a perfect representation by accident.

rosalind franklin discovered the double helix in dna but her research was stolen by two men before she could properly share the information and now watson and crick are famous for what she spent years studying
Plus she developed ovarian cancer that was most likely caused by radiation from the HUNDREDS of hours spent using x ray crystallography to ascertain the structure. She literally worked herself to death to be a footnote in most genetics textbooks.
The Brazilian pygmy gecko (Coleodactylus amazonicus) is so small that raindrops pose a serious threat. Luckily, its body is so light and its skin so hydrophobic that it can shake off any drops that might land on it. It can even walk on water.
they go BOING on the leaves and then they go walk on water and stuff
Remind me to try this with some Lygodactylus…
