People can choose between being good and evil. He didn’t have a choice. He didn’t have free will. He was made to be evil, but he’s not a villain. Bucky was as much a victim as the people the Winter Soldier killed. 

Not only that, it’s not like he was treated well either. He wasn’t some petted and favored assassin. He was abused. Horribly so. So not only does he not have free will and not only is he used for evil against his will and without his knowledge, he’s abused, imprisoned and dehumanized on top of it. And he doesn’t even have the free will to hate.

If we’re looking for one of the most mistreated, tragic figures in comics, Bucky is it.

I was driving past a business here in the Houston Heights, when I glimpsed this painted on the side of the building. I recognized that iconic WWII poster before I realized it was not just any woman, but 14 year old Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl who was attacked for wanting an education. The words next to her are her quote, ( “I don’t mind if I have to sit on the floor at school.) All I want is education. And I’m afraid of no one.”

This is gorgeous.

After a job in the Ministry of Defence drawing demonstration models, she was soon moved to the map making department. This was an obvious boon to her career when she went on to create maps for both C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. She is most well known for illustrating the entire Chronicles of Narnia, even doing different covers for various editions throughout her entire life.

"This is no time to be ashamed of the Gospel. It is the time to preach it from the rooftops. Do not be afraid to break out of comfortable and routine modes of living in order to take up the challenge of making Christ known in the modern metropolis." ~ Pope John Paul II

Many women, I think, resist feminism because it is an agony to be fully conscious of the brutal misogyny which permeates culture, society, and all personal relationships. It is as if our oppression were cast in lava eons ago and now it is granite, and each individual woman is buried inside the stone. Women try to survive inside the stone, buried in it. Women say, I like this stone, its weight is not too heavy for me. Women defend the stone by saying that it protects them from rain and wind and fire. Women say, all I have ever known is this stone, what is there without it?
