Yes of course
What is going on in his eyes. I mean, WHAT. He looks like he’s one inspiring musical crescendo away from whipping out the Sailor Senshi Magic Wand (TM) and dealing out some sparkly Planet McAvoy justice. Or possibly resurrecting some White Witches and taking over the magical land in the back of the wardrobe.
MCAVOY CRYSTAL POWER MAKE UP *BASHOOM*
Funny how the fandom loves talking about how Charles didn’t accept Raven’s mutation, but no one notice how she never accepts anything about charles. She spends the whole movie accusing him of everything you can think of, and never accepts his telepathy.
Not gonna lie, the fact that this is so rarely addressed does kind of bother me.
Pretty much. Erik and Raven tote about mutant and proud, yet neither of them can accept Charles’ telepathy.
Raven flips her shit when she thinks Charles has been reading her mind, she insists that he doesn’t and she’s his sister. It’s made abundantly clear that he had a difficult, essentially loveless childhood (his reaction to “Sharon” offering to make him hot chocolate, the physically distant photograph, the dead father…) and the one person who he’s closest to can’t accept the whole of who he is. Few things hurt more than realizing the people you love most cannot accept you whole hog, only select pieces of you. And it’s 100% apparent that Charles (misguided or no) acts out of love and worry for his baby sister whereas Raven acts out of guarded fear, yet she crucifies him for wanting to be “part of [the world]” and claims he’s the one who can’t be accepting.
But no, Charles is the big mean boogeyman for trying to protect his sister the only way he knows how.
#it bothers me so much like she gets so shitty at him for wanting to be part of the world and not against it#But who on this earth wouldn’t want to be part of the world when they’ve had the sum of themself rejected#Who wouldn’t desire to be around other people (especially with a gift like telepathy which is by defintion a more social mutation)#and search for those open-minded ones who wouldn’t shun his telepathy#Raven acts like Charles is naive and doesn’t understand when he understands better than anyone#The man is a telepath he’s seen the breadth of the human condition he understands that there is good and evil in this world#yet chooses to strive for equality and cohabitation#he chooses to believe in the overpowering force of good
Reblobbing with Erik’s tags too because they are perf.
#and charles himself NEVER SAYS A THING about this to anyone #he just soldiers on without complaining #I wonder if that’s his upbringing coming into play too#charles xavier#xfc#cherik#you can’t kill the meta
oh gee let’s go look up some reference for cherno alpha’s feet they’re so cool

Secretly?! Too late, James.
Aw, he just doesn’t feel confident enough to do it by himself!
(What? Sure it’s a lot of work, but all the other supervillains want to rule the world/galaxy/universe by themselves)
“Steve Carell, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert: How men would look if they had to pose in ads the way women are expected to.”
Yeah this definitely deserves a place on my blog
im so glad I woke up this morining
I don’t really know what kind of history books bigots like you read.
The Great Libraries of Timbuktu? The steel metallurgy of the Haya? Dentistry? Caesarean section? Premature neonatal care? Mathematics, architecture, engineering?
I know it’s hard for a racist like you who imagines “technological advancement” to be some kind of end-all-be-all, or proof of some “inherent intelligence”. I know, I know. It’s hard to imagine, but Europeans have been drawing knowledge from everyone around them since the dawn of time. What did you think ended the Dark Ages?
Your magical (read: white supremacist) idea of a purely 'white' Rome never existed.
The Minoan culture on the island of Crete between 1500-1700 B.C.E. had a highly developed waste management system. They had very advanced plumbing and designed places to dispose of organic wastes. Knossos, the capital city, had a central courtyard with baths that were filled and emptied using terra-cotta pipes. This piping system is similar to techniques used today. They had large sewers built of stone.”
In case you needed further clarification, neither the Minoans nor other (later) Greeks were ethnically uniform. They also had the first flush toilets, dating back to 18th century B.C.E. They had flushing toilets, with wooden seats and an overhead reservoir. The Minoan royals were the last group to use flushing toilets until the re-development of that technology in 1596.
Oh, and look the Mayans had indoor plumbing, acqueducts, and pressurized water too. I mean, you can ignore that the area Mayans lived in had little to few rivers, no lakes or standing water, nor other sources of running water, while simultaneously dealing with monsoons and flooding due to one of the heaviest yearly rainfalls in the Americas.
Classic Maya even used household water filters using locally abundant limestone carved into a porous cylinder, made so as to work in a manner strikingly similar to modern ceramic water filters.
Of course, by this time millenia later none of your precious “white people” had developed any methods besides shitting in pots.Continuing, the earliest archaeological record of an advanced system of drainage comes from the Indus Valley Civilization from around 3100 B.C.E in what is now Pakistan and North India. By 2500 B.C.E (almost 5,000 years ago), highly developed drainage system where wastewater from each house flowed into the main drain.All houses in the major cities of Harappa and Mohenjo−daro had access to water and drainage facilities. Waste water was directed to covered drains which lined the major streets directed to covered drains, which lined the major streets. Each home had its own private drinking well and its own private bathroom. The mains that carried wastewater to a cesspit were tall enough for people to walk through. Reservoirs, a central drainage system, fresh water pumped into the homes. Pools. Baths.It was made from bricks smoothened and joined together seamlessly. The expert masonry kept the sewer watertight. Drops at regular intervals acted like an automatic cleaning device.
Filters for solid waste.Sorry, what were the British doing up until like, 200 years ago? Shitting in the streets? Oh yeah.I mean, I could get into how by the Shang Dynasty (roughly 1600 B.C.E.), China had sophisticated plumbing including pressure inverted siphons.
Or into the city of Amarna, Ancient Egypt. Or Persepolis, Persia and the Achaemenids in 600 B.C.E.But, I mean, it sounds like the only one still in the Bronze Age is you.
Oh my god I need this movie now.
