"That’s actually a running joke on set. Whenever someone’s like, “I don’t understand why my character would do this,” or, “This feels awkward,” the director — or whoever — will be like, “Guys, this is a show about werewolves. Just do it.”"

Ryan Kelly (x)

I thought I was beyond being surprised by how awful Teen Wolf has become, but then… this.

This? This right here?

This perfectly explains the declining quality of the show.

Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport? This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever. Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do? I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here. 

HEY FUN FACT: pole dancing is known as something strippers do because strippers invented it. And that’s okay! It’s okay to have respect for strippers and the hard work they put into what they do! Let’s stop trying to take the stripper part out of pole dancing so upperclass white girls can do it without being ~stigmatized~ because god forbid women be sexual.

Strippers did not invent poledancing, but that’s okay, too!  Pole dancing is an extremely old sport, early roots can be traced back to the Indian sport, mallakahamba (as early as 1100 AD).  It also existed in China as a performing art prior to the 12th century. 
Strippers dancing around poles, probably got its start in the late 19th century with “hoochie coochie” dances that would be performed in tents. “Little Egypt”, widely attributed as the first striptease pole dancer, was a striptease belly dancer who preformed what they dubbed “exotic dances” in burlesque shows held at the Chicago World’s Fair.  Her dance became so popular, many other erotic dancers began to emulate her performance.
The fact pole dancing is so strongly associated with erotic dancing now is actually a bit incidental! The burlesque shows would be held in tents, and the tents just happened to be propped up by a pole in the center that the woman would dance around! Depression era burlesque shows, held in tents for cost-effectiveness, further solidified the connection between erotic dances, “exotic” dances, and pole dances.  
*note, I don’t approve of the term ‘exotic dance’ to mean ‘bastardized versions of dances from other countries’, this is just the terminology that would have been used, and I think it’s worth noting that erotic dancing is still referred to as exotic dancing, despite the fact they do not share an overlap, and the term ‘exotic’ is, in and of itself, often used rather problematically!

This is even better.

Oh man, see I know what you’re getting at with this, but saying that strippers (or sex workers more accurately) didn’t invent pole dancing is, sorry, just plain wrong.
To attribute the modern pole dancing form seen above to forms like Pole Mallakhamb or Chinese Pole—both historically male dominated pole forms by the way—is not only ridiculous from a technical standpoint (I’ve ranted on this before), it directly contributes to people divorcing pole dancing from its sex work roots and encourages people to ignore the time, dedication and innovation of the women who DID develop it.
Were sex workers the first ones to develop a pole form? No. Were they the ones to develop modern pole dancing seen above? Yes.
Those burlesque performers who took advantage of the tent poles present during their performance invented a form that’s been expanded upon and developed by sex workers for sex workers for decades. Just because the mainstream has finally caught on to how much fun it is doesn’t give anyone the right to rip its history out from under the women who bruised, bled and broke for it.

The toughest thing about the shield was making it believable that [Captain America] could throw this thing, have it bounce off something, then take some guy out and have it come back to him. We tried some practical stuff, where he’s throwing a rubber shield. Nothing worked until we handed it over to Chris Evans, until we said, ‘Okay, we’ve got this shield. It’s this wide, it weighs this much. What would you do? How would you throw it?’ And he came up with some really interesting ways of doing it. He had nothing in his hands, he was just miming the actions. It was basically Chris Evans’ ability to mime throwing and catching the shield that made it work.”

- Joe Johnston, director, Captain America: The First Avenger

I don’t usually comment on posts but FUN RANDOM DISNEY FACT : before Scar got his Scar (which was given to him by a wildebeest after an incident involving Mufasa) his name was Taka. He requested to be called Scar after this incident because he is a very over-dramatic lion as we already know! The source for this fact is from the Lion King novel series. 

Damn you learn something everyday.

EXCUSE ME THERE IS A LION KING NOVEL SERIES EXCUSE ME EXCUSE MEEEE

Another fun fact: I just looked it up and in Swahili, taka means garbage.

So their parents named them literally “King” and “Garbage” omfg that’s so awful xD

that’s so MEAN NO WONDER GARBAGE WANTED TO KILL HIS FAMILY

it’s like loki and thor all over again
