Note: This isn’t meant to be a critique of the characters; we know so little about them outside of those featured in previous games (Varric, Cullen, and Leliana) that it’s impossible to determine which sign they’re most compatible with. Instead, this is just going by what we do know, so not all of the traits of each sign will apply accurately to its corresponding character!

Laughing, because Cullen is my husband, according to this XD

“ … She’s sassy, she’s a little trashy. She likes the dirty jokes. But she’s very distinct from someone like Isabella. She’s very different. She’s much more for the people, about the common good. And when you have a whole party of people that are kind of like Lords and Ladies, she has her own kind of network of spies and stuff that she relies upon that are completely different from anyone else. Meaning that her demeanour, her attitude is kinda like a breath of fresh air in the Inquisition. Everyone is like very serious and then she comes along and is like, ‘I bought you a hat!’ ”

“ So they always put a girl character in movies for someone to fall in love with? ”

—    

my 7 year old son (astutely calling attention to the lack of female leads in action and adventure films).

While watching Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz flirt in POTC On Stranger Tides my son asked me “Why is there always romance in every movie?” He had asked the same question last week when we watched Kirsten Dunst and Toby Maguire have their memorable moment in the rain in Spiderman. He’s 7 and not a fan of kissing scenes. I try to explain that many people, especially adults, enjoy romance so it’s a popular thing in movies.

He responds with “So they always put a girl character in for someone to fall in love with?” And I am floored, because I realize the message Hollywood has sent my child is that you only need to include one female character - and it’s not so she can be the hero. If a 7 year old boy can recognize that women in action films are nothing but a plot device it is time for the film industry to admit they have a problem.

I think I’ve had this conversation with my sons, although less obvious than this one. Which is why this one made me do a double take and remember that it’s been discussed in our house, too. Huh.

Don’t underestimate what kids will notice.

My youngest will tell absolutely everyone how unfair it is that Black Widow doesn’t have her own movie, and that you can’t get an action figure of Maria Hill. He hasn’t seen all of the MCU, he doesn’t own all the action figures - but he’s noticed.

Boys notice, so do girls. And then it becomes normal and we have to UNLEARN IT. Not normalizing it in the first place is a lot easier.
