you know that stage you went through where you hated being a girl and you just resented yourself and everything having to do with girly things because you were so sick of pink and barbies being pushed on you so you like full force rejected that shit and you were just so full of hate and vitriol at anything even the slightest bit “girly” yeah gender norms will fuck you up
i like how when black widow takes a shower or wets her hair or whatever at falcon’s place her hair’s all wavy but she later has ruler straight hair, like does falcon own a straightener just to make his guests comfortable because that’s lovely
NO BUT THE MOTHER NEVER EVEN GOT TO BE PART OF THE GANG DO YOU REALISE HOW ANGRY THAT MAKES ME? LIKE THESE FRIENDS THAT MEANT SO MUCH TO US ONLY REALLY GOT 8 YEARS TOGETHER… AND IT FEELS SO DAMN WRONG. LIKE THE MOTHER WAS MEANT TO BE PART OF THE UNIT. THE MOTHER WAS MEANT TO BE BROS WITH BARNEY AND PLAY LASER TAG WITH SWARKLES AND SING LETS GO TO THE MALL WITH THEM. SHE WAS MEANT TO MAKE BETS WITH MARSHALL AND LILY. SHE WAS MEANT TO HANG OUT WITH THE WHOLE GROUP AND BE A PART OF THEIR INSIDE JOKES RATHER THAN JUST HEARING TED’S STORIES. SHE WAS MEANT TO BE THE FUNDAMENTAL PART OF THE UNIT AND HELP THEM ALL AND BE CLOSE WITH ALL OF THEM BUT THE GANG JUST STOPPED BEING THE GANG. SHE NEVER GOT TO MAKE FOODS SING TO ALL OF THEM, SHE NEVER GOT TO PLAY THEM UKULELE, SHE NEVER GOT TO HANG OUT WITH EVERYONE, SHE NEVER EVEN GOT TO SEE BARNEY AND ROBIN AS A GROUP, ALL ROBIN EVER WAS TO HER WAS A DISTANT FLAKE OF A WOMAN WHO NEARLY RAN AWAY FROM HER WEDDING AND LEFT ALL HER FRIENDS. THE MOTHER WAS MEANT TO TURN THEIR FIVE INTO A SIX, BUT INSTEAD IT BECAME TWO TWOS AND TWO MISERABLE, LONELY ONES. THAT IS SO INCREDIBLY NOT FAIR AND I HATE CARTER AND CRAIG FOR DOING IT AND I HATE THAT THEY DIDN’T ALL SIX OF THEM END UP ON THE FRONT PORCH TOGETHER I HATE EVERYTHING ABOUT THAT FINALE JUST LEAVE ME TO BOIL IN RAGE OF MISSED OPPORTUNITIES.
