Get To Know Me • one/five male characters • Ron Weasley (Harry Potter series)
"Oh, of course," said Ron, clapping a hand to his forehead. "I forgot we’ll be hunting down Voldemort in a mobile library."
Odo is such an important Star Trek character because more than any other character I’ve seen, he illustrates what it’s like to grow up different from everyone else and how that difference shapes you. This scene fucking guts me when I watch it. I order to fit in, he was forced to participate in the othering of himself. His uniqueness is fine as long as it only comes out in ways that are palatable for society. The rest of the time, he was to look and act like everyone else, regardless of how unnatural it feels for him. And it just leaves him feeling bitter and alone.
The fact that both of these reactions came from males
This is basically the only instance where “not all men” applies because it’s not some whining shitlord trying to make it all about them, it’s literally men NOT being shitlords and actually being respectful of women as people.
A+ would date.
And note she can’t just say, “Sorry, not interested.” She has to lie and say, “Sorry, I’m—taken,” because it’s the only excuse that will result in the guy actually leaving her alone. Because, as this comic shows so eloquently, her feelings are less respected than a man’s apparent ownership of her/ desire of her.
