#god i loved this scene SO MUCH #because she’s scared. she’s scared and everything’s going wrong and she just wants to huddle into a corner and do nothing at all #she’s just had to face her worst fear‚ something she can’t control‚ can’t manipulate‚ can’t fight #everything is going horribly wrong and honestly if she hadn’t answered i doubt anyone would have specifically noticed #but she gets up anyway. she pulls herself together and she radios in and she goes to stop clint. #some guy who totally missed the point complained in a review that it was unfeminist to have had her be scared and i say fuck that #do you have any idea how wonderful it was to see a heroine who freaks out and then pushes past it‚ sir #who is ALLOWED by the narrative to freak out‚ who is not shamed for her fear‚ who can be afraid without it defining her #because it was pretty fucking wonderful to me
those tags man.
That’s good service.
We shall never deny a guess even the most ridiculous request..
The stuff what don’t get spoke.
I want to talk for a moment about today’s Hawkeye. I can barely describe how much it warms my heart to have a big time superhero with hearing disabilities.
Both I, and my little brother have worn hearing aids since we were toddlers. I have severe hearing loss in my right ear, my inner ear was faulty at birth, it is almost completely useless, at 90% deaf.
My little brother has hearing aids in both ears, as both his ears have progressive hearing loss. I don’t know his percentage. Hearing aids do help, but I would say that they are like a visually impaired person putting on foggy glasses
We are not 100% deaf. We do not use sign language, though I do often find that I read lips, as trying to pay attention with just my left ear gives me headaches.
Hawkeye is hearing impaired in his comic. This is just as important to me as seeing diverse, strong female characters, and characters of color.
This is so important. His hearing loss is not being treated as a joke, or something that he made Clint helpless.
Clint Barton is hearing impaired.
Hawkeye is hearing impaired.
A famous superhero is hearing impaired.
On behalf of myself, and my brother, and the entire deaf community, thank you Matt Fractionmattfractionblog
there are literally so many badass things about this panel that if i tried to type them all out i’d probably hit the post character limit
Whenever I get sad about my anatomy I look at Rob Liefeld’s art and that cheers me up.
