“Sure, Peeta has all the same types of qualities as Gale, just not as magnified. Where Gale is fierce and defends others by taking the whip, Peeta does the same by playing a clever game of Keep-Away and leading Katniss’ enemies from her, all the while knowing full well that they could turn on him at any moment. Where Gale is passionate and urges Katniss to run away with him, Peeta instead offers himself up (multiple times), so that she would return to her family and, more importantly, Prim. As far as the antiquated argument that Gale is “manlier” or that Peeta is weak or shows little evidence of masculinity (aside from throwing that huge spiked bowling ball thing—oh, baby…), to hell with that. Peeta is strong in non-traditional ways, his disdain for having to prove his manhood being first and foremost. He understands that being strong isn’t just physical. He is talented and uses those talents to his advantage. He has a calming presence and listens when most people would try to talk big.”
It’s weird being quoted. Thanks for reading!
It’s a really good text. And I couldn’t agree more.
And, when possible, read the books. They are amazing!

I’m getting married in this. You can never stop me.
I just want to say that this is why minority representation in the media matters. Mae Jemison was inspired to become an astronaut after watching Nichelle Nichols as Uhura on Star Trek.
Media is NEVER “just” media.
She also appeared in an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation that LeVar Burton directed, and Nichelle Nichols visited her on set. :)
so by this logic we’re not clumsy, just horny
let’s be real… we’re both
