ok so i’m going to explain once again why stuff like this message:
is sexist, ignorant, and woman-hating.
first of all: “so, she has to marry him. any girl would be really lucky to do that.”
NO NO NO NO NO NO NO. katniss was SEVENTEEN YEARS OLD. she had just been forced into an arena where she had to fight for her life. she was forced to pretend to be in love with peeta to ENSURE HER OWN SURVIVAL. meanwhile, she’s having to deal with a rebellion that she unwittingly has become the symbol of, conflicting feelings for peeta and for gale, and trying to protect the people she loves from the capitol.
she has a lot going on. peeta is not her entire fucking life, and fuck you for thinking that he should be. just because he loves her doesn’t mean she’s obligated to love him back. she’s UNDERSTANDABLY confused and distracted by other issues that literally mean life and death for the people that she loves. if you think that sorting through her feelings for peeta are more important or take precedence over trying to protect the people that she loves and trying to accept her role as the “symbol of the rebellion” (a role that she NEVER ASKED FOR but is now thrust upon her unwittingly), then you have some serious issues.
and the fact that you think katniss should feel LUCKY that she has to marry peeta? wow. just. wow. so she should feel LUCKY that she’s forced into a marriage with someone that she’s not sure she loves in order to keep her family and friends safe? she should feel lucky that the capitol is turning her whole life into a charade, a facade? she should feel lucky that this is only the START of the capitol controlling her for the rest of her life out of fear for her family and friends? oh, but none of that matters because she gets to marry a cute guy, and all women really want out of life is marriage with a cute guy!!!!!
and “what’s so special about gale?” I’M ACTUALLY LAUGHING AT THIS. gale helped katniss keep her family alive for half a decade. he hunted with her. he talked to her. he was her BEST FRIEND, her hunting partner, the only person she could rely on as her equal. she cares about him and there’s absolutely NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT. there’s also nothing wrong with being unsure about her feelings for gale and peeta. let me rephrase: she was just forced into an arena where she had to pretend to be in love with peeta to ensure her own survival, and now she’s back, and her best friend kisses her and proclaims his love? of course she would be confused. it’s completely understandable.
once again: katniss isn’t OBLIGATED to choose either one of them, and she’s not a bitch for, basically, telling them that she needs her space. she didn’t choose for them to fall in love with her. this is another woman-hating thing i see all the time. the idea that if a guy (or two guys, in this case) are in love with a girl, she must love them back immediately no matter what because she’s lucky that any guy is in love with her at all!!!! she should be grateful for that because guys are just so muchbetterthan girls!!!!!!
so how about you sort your shit out, you sexist piece of garbage.
