Kitten Meets Hedgehog [x]
Let’s talk Hannibal and feminism for a second.
Specifically, let’s talk about what makes Lecter’s character so appealing to a female audience and why that makes so many people uncomfortable.
(Takes the book & movie canons into account. TW for discussion of murder, cannibalism and violence as well as mentions of sexual violence.)

ALL RIGHT LISTEN UP YOU PEOPLE LIKE THESE STORIES SO I’M GONNA GIVE YOU ONE
See this lady I’m hugging? That’s my great-grandma. She’s not even 80 (my family had babies young and then there’s me) but don’t let that fool you. I’m pretty fucking sure she’s the mob boss.When she wants something done, it gets done. Sometimes we don’t even know how.
BUT THAT’S NOT WHY I’M TELLING YOU ABOUT HER BECAUSE I COULD GO ON ABOUT MY BADASS G-MA ALL DAY.
This is why:
This picture was taken during the visit on mother’s day. Now, my grandmother doesn’t like living in a home because she still has her mind. The other residents, unfortunately, do not. There’s not a lot to do and it’s hard for her to get anything when the nurses are pretty preoccupied with the other, less sane residents.
So my dad says “Just act crazy with them. It’ll be fun.”
and I saw my chance
I told her to do something, quietly, so no one would hear. As we were leaving, her personal nurse gave us farewells (and was a bit condescending to G-ma, but I know that can’t be helped). Just before we walked out, the nurse said:
“That was nice of your family to visit.”
“Yeah. Always sad when they have to leave.”
At this point, my grandmother gives me a look and continues speaking:
“But it’s okay, because I’m never alone.”
“Oh, what do you mean?”
“I always have my angel with me.”
“Awww like an angel watching over you? Like your husband?”
“No. A different angel. His name is Castiel. He wears a trenchcoat.”
Let me tell you, I have never laughed and cried so hard in my life to watch that nurse’s expression.
THIS IS WHY I LOVE MY G-MA. THIS IS WHY YOU SHOULD LOVE MY G-MA TOO.
I THINK THIS IS MY FAVORITE STORY ON TUMBLR OH MY GOD PLEASE GIVE YOUR GREAT GRANDMA A HUG FOR ME OMFG A+
