still upset that the films never acknowledge that Peeta loses a limb in the first arena and goes through the Quarter Quell with a prosthetic leg
or that Katniss has suffered permanent hearing loss in one of her ears and now requires a hearing aid
or, you know, the Avoxes
because, you know, why show disabled people doing things
it super annoys me that this version of this post keeps going around because yes it is super problematic that there is such shitty representation of people with disabilities and im more than slightly annoyed that they just ignored the whole losing his fucking leg thing because thats a big fucking deal wow
but can we please be angry and spread the idea with accurate information because otherwise the meaning is lost because people are just going to roll their eyes because it sounds like you don’t actually know what you’re talking about
katniss never wears a hearing aid. her hearing does get all fucked up in the first games but they fix it after she is rescued from the arena. it is mentioned multiple times that they fix her hearing to such an extent that she can actually hear better hence how she can hear the force fields in the quarter quell.
peeta’s leg should have been included in the movie as should have the avoxxes (although if we’re being honest they were not a major storyline so it makes sense that they got cut but they could have at least been mentioned) but stop spreading fake information to make a point because it is hurting the otherwise valid point you are making.
I agree completely, except she couldn’t hear the force fields, that was a lie she told so she didn’t have to explain how she could see where they were and give away her advantage if the alliance was broken later in the games, which she expected it would be.
I desperately need more books. I have one book that I’m reading right now, and it’s the last of my unread books. All I want to do is go to Powell’s book store in Portland and get more books.
It’s my favorite place in the entire universe, and I have a mile long list of books I want to buy at the moment. So I want to go and sit on the floor, and take up space in the isles and be in peoples way with my basket full, and piles of books.
Because I am that girl. I am the girl who will take up way too much space and slide out of the way when she finally realizes someone’s leaning over her to try and get a book. I am the girl that will stand and wait patiently for ten or twenty minutes for someone to move so I can get to the books behind them. I will say excuse me, and please and thank you. Because I really am grateful to get to the books behind you.
I am the girl who loses herself in the bookstore but never gets lost. The girl who never looks at her map of Powell’s but gets a new one every time she goes. I’m the one who uses the computer only when desperate, until then I will look at every single cover until i find the book I want. I am excited by each and every new book I find and in love with every new book I choose to read.
Yes, I am that girl, who loses herself in the books, and never realizes whats going on around her. The book is far more important. Imagines herself in the wizzarding world of Harry Potter, and begs not to be chosen as a tribute in The Hunger games, who trusts her parents not to send her off to be an Unwind (even though she’s to old now to be unwound). I am not in reality and one other world of someone’s imagination (combined with my own). I am in every other world, and rarely in reality.
Because reality is never really good enough for me, unless I’m in a bookstore.
