CAN WE TALK ABOUT THIS FOR A SECOND? Because this is my favorite part in the whole movie. Mulan is back to wearing traditionally feminine clothing, and Shan Yu is mocking her “Looks like you’re out of ideas.”
BUT Mulan is all FUCK NO and disarms that asshole with a GODDAMN SYMBOL OF FEMININITY.
NOT TODAY SHAN YU. NOT TODAY.
I’m pretty sure he wasn’t making a quip about her being a woman. I’m pretty sure it’s deeper than that.
From the moment Shan Yu meets Mulan (when she aims a rocket at his face) his traditional sense of might and strength is put into turmoil. He believes an army, ruthlessness and uncompromising tactics will win the day over the honor-driven, dynastic people of China. Mulan challenges this with intelligence, individuality and strength of will. In many ways Shan Yu and Mulan are similar, so it’s easy for them to face off like this; the difference being that Shan Yu looks to destroy, and Mulan seeks to preserve.
Anyways, Shan Yu is constantly beaten by what he sees as a weaker tactics, until this moment, where Mulan seems to be at her worst. So he insults her methods as ultimately ineffective. But instead we see her at her best, and she turns the tides. While Mulan’s feminine aspects are definitely a part of who she is, and define her as ‘Mulan’, they are by no means what Shan Yu decides to attack in this moment.
I showed this post to my boyfriend and he tried to take his shirt off like a girl and
Out of the 82k notes my post got this is by far the best comment holy shit thank u for being u
So i tried it both ways and uh
i mean how do you do the first one without pulling out all your hair?
this made me laugh really hard….
and it made me realize that girls and boys pull their shirt off differently. /amazed
but seriously I think girls just do the cross arm thing because of HAIR like demonstrated
So one year, one URL change, and a hair cut later, I decide to try again… FOR SCIENCE!
Its not science unless you write it down so
Well done, i guess…
I fucked up
I DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW WE CAN HAVE SUCH DIFFERENT WAYS OF TAKING OFF SHIRTS AND SO MUCH DIFFICULTY DOING IT THE OTHER WAY
I can take my shirt both ways easily, but I usually take it off like….
is this like the genderfluid or agender or something-gender way?
so the girl way
How about the boy way….
WWHAT AM I
Okay, I usually grab from the front of the collar not the back but for the purposes of science…
just grab and pull. Seriously.
Now the cross-arms way.
