I’m honestly really curious to see how many people actually accept it. Because there are allot of people who don’t believe it’s real. Or at the least don’t accept it when somebody they know come out as asexual.
4k notes are really sad..
It’s interesting to see Steve’s insecurity about his friendship with Bucky. Bucky was his best friend, and presumably his only friend. Steve idolized him. As he told Natasha and Sam: even when he had nothing, he had Bucky.
But Bucky? Bucky had a family – parents, probably some siblings. He likely had friends from school, work friends, and friends from army training. He had endless girlfriends. We know he was popular. Bucky had an entire life, and objectively, Steve was only a part of it.
Before Captain America, Bucky was Steve’s world, but Steve may not have been Bucky’s. And because of that, you can see Steve constantly second guess Bucky’s love for him. During CATFA, he doesn’t know if Bucky will follow him into war. In the CATWS funeral flashback, he doesn’t want to intrude on Bucky’s life (even though if the situation were reversed, you know he’d never let Bucky ‘get by on his own’). Even during the final CATWS fight scene, he says ‘You’re my friend’ instead of ‘We were friends’. He’s horrified that Bucky died following him, because Bucky had a life outside of Steve.
I don’t think Steve realized how important he is to Bucky until he broke the Soldier’s programming, just by existing.
President Obama’s “before and after” reaction to the Supreme Court ruling.
Just so everybody knows, we can thank Richard Nixon, the Watergate Scandal, and President Reagan for yesterday’s Supreme Court decision regarding same-sex marriage.
After the Watergate break-in, special prosecutor Archie Cox subpoenaed Nixon for his cassette tape recordings of conversations. Nixon refused to comply and attempted to have then-Attorney General Eliot Richardson fire Cox and appoint someone else. Richardson refused and resigned. When Nixon contacted Deputy AG William Ruckelshaus and asked him to fire Cox, Ruckelshaus also refused and resigned. (This is often referred to as the Saturday Night Massacre and is part of the greater Watergate Scandal.)
Since both the AG and the Deputy AG had resigned, Nixon then asked Solicitor General Robert Bork to fire Cox and he agreed to do so. Bork had been promised a spot on the Supreme Court by Nixon (though this was not revealed until after Bork’s death, in his posthumously published memoirs).
Nixon, of course, resigned from the presidency and never made good on his promise to make Bork a Supreme Court justice. However, in 1987, Ronald Reagan nominated Bork to replace SC Justice Lewis Powell. This caused a major uproar, and Congress ultimately did not confirm Bork. Reagan then nominated Douglas Ginsburg (no relation to SC Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg), who withdrew himself from consideration when it came to light that he had repeatedly smoked marijuana as both a student and an assistant professor at Harvard (remember this is during the heyday of the War on Drugs).
Reagan then nominated Anthony Kennedy, who of course was confirmed, who has often been a swing vote in favor of liberal decisions, and who wrote yesterday’s majority opinion on same-sex marriage.
So thanks, Tricky Dick, for setting in motion the events which brought us to Kennedy’s nomination. And thanks, Gipper, for having to settle for your third-choice Supreme Court Justice nominee. Without you the world might be a dimmer place.
