By far the stupidest criticism of the new Thor is ‘no where in Norse mythology is Thor a woman, stop messing with mythology.’
Right, because Norse mythology is just fucking filled with stories about Thor hanging out with Iron Man and Captain America at the Avengers Tower.
Well, he’d known Tosh for [at least two or three] years at this point, but honestly, I’d guess that he’d only known Ianto a few weeks longer than he’d known Gwen, and he certainly didn’t know Ianto any better than he knew Gwen, considering that Ianto had been lying to him about everything up until about a month ago.
And Jack did come to Ianto’s rescue in Cyberwoman. And in Out of Time, even though that was a much smaller issue. He also came to Ianto’s rescue in Meat, Adam, and CoE: Day Four, even though he failed the last time.
As for Tosh, Jack’s entire relationship with Tosh is built on him saving her (in a quid-pro-quo way, yes, but it was still a major leap of faith on Jack’s part), and they were strangers back then. Then there was Greeks Bearing Gifts, and he did promise to do all he could to take care of her in Captain Jack Harkness, even if he did spend most of the episode uselessly pining for a guy he’d known for two hours. I’ve never really gotten the sense that Jack doesn’t care whether Tosh or lives or dies. In fact, the opposite is pretty strongly and consistently implied.
Honestly, it’s not like Jack sat around and made s’mores while Tosh and Ianto were captured. He was busy with his own part of the mission and he had no way of knowing where Tosh and Ianto were, what they were up to, or how immediate the danger they were in was. Saying “They can take care of themselves,” and hoping for the best was all he really could do. He did end up charging in and saving everyone at the end of the episode, but these things can’t always happen instantly.
I just don’t really think it’s fair to interpret that line as Jack saying he doesn’t really care about Tosh or Ianto, especially when he’s proven that he does care about them deeply on many other occasions.
When an undercover officer saw Monica Jones, a black transgender woman, walking down the street just a few blocks from her house, in an area that the officer described as being “known for prostitution,” that was enough to convince him that she intended to engage in prostitution. It was on that basis that he approached and stopped her.
In April of this year, Monica was convicted of violating this overbroad and vague law. Today she appeals that conviction, and the ACLU, along with other advocacy and civil rights organizations, filed a brief in support of her appeal.
We #StandWithMonica because transgender women of color should be able to walk down the street in their neighborhoods without being arrested, or worse, for simply being themselves.
