Are you Team Peeta or Team Gale?
the media is pushing this love triangle so hard and the cast and crew are having none of it and it’s great
Katniss isn’t a piece of property to be fought over.
there is no team peeta or team gale, there is only team katniss.
Twelve years and she still makes the same expression when her name is called out in the nominee lineup
You know, Peeta’s unconventional masculinity is as relevant for traditional gender subversion in The Hunger Games as Katniss’s unconventional femininity.
It’s a bit annoying to see everyone and their mother praising Katniss for being such a unique action female hero, and then hearing those same people making fun of Peeta for being a weakling and a ‘sissy’.
Yes, Peeta paints sunsets and bakes cookies and frosts cakes. He is sometimes/usually unarmed and needs Katniss’s protection. He needs saving at several points across the story, and eventually he is captured and needs rescuing.
So what? Just as Katniss can be dextrous at archery, an assassin and a leader in combat, while retaining her kindness, humanity and selflessness, Peeta can paint, bake, and not be a traditional male action hero and still be the male lead and romantic hero of the story. He can still be sexually alluring for Katniss and capable of extremely heroic actions, while needing rescue and baking cakes.
And if you can’t see how relevant it is for this story and for a younger generation to understand that traditional and media-approved masculinity is also a social construct/imposition, as restrictive and reactionary as enforced traditional femininity can be, then the joke’s on you.
Chris Hardwick: Why did Hershel have a smile on his face?
Scott Wilson: I think it’s really a culmination of everything that happened from the first episode that he was in, where he was having conversations with Rick and subsequent conversations that he’s had throughout his run on the show with Rick and other people, where he was trying to counsel a humanity or a forgiveness or an ability to communicate with other people and try to keep a line of communication open with other people. And he heard Rick doing that, he heard Rick attempting to do that. And I think he thought at that time, “It’s going to be all right.” That thing that he tried to impart was, in fact, imparted to Rick and to other people as well.
