Steve Rogers did, in fact, realize that something was off when he saw the outline of the woman’s odd bra (a push-up bra, he would later learn), but being an officer and a gentleman, he said that it was the game that gave the future away.

No, see, this scene is just amazing. The costume department deserves so many kudos for this, it’s unreal, especially given the fact that they pulled off Peggy pretty much flawlessly.

1) Her hair is completely wrong for the 40’s. No professional/working woman  would have her hair loose like that. Since they’re trying to pass this off as a military hospital, Steve would know that she would at least have her hair carefully pulled back, if maybe not in the elaborate coiffures that would have been popular.

2) Her tie? Too wide, too long. That’s a man’s tie, not a woman’s. They did, however, get the knot correct as far as I can see - that looks like a Windsor.

3) That. Bra. There is so much clashing between that bra and what Steve would expect (remember, he worked with a bunch of women for a long time) that it has to be intentional. She’s wearing a foam cup, which would have been unheard of back then. It’s also an exceptionally old or ill-fitting bra - why else can you see the tops of the cups? No woman would have been caught dead with misbehaving lingerie like that back then, and the soft satin cups of 40’s lingerie made it nearly impossible anyway. Her breasts are also sitting at a much lower angle than would be acceptable in the 40’s.

Look at his eyes. He knows by the time he gets to her hair that something is very, very wrong.

so what you are saying is S.H.E.I.L.D. has a super shitty costume division….

Nope, Nick Fury totally did this on purpose.

There’s no knowing what kind of condition Steve’s in, or what kind of person he really is, after decades of nostalgia blur the reality and the long years in the ice (after a plane crash and a shitload of radiation) do their work. (Pre-crash Steve is in lots of files, I’m sure. Nick Fury does not trust files.) So Fury instructs his people to build a stage, and makes sure that the right people put up some of the wrong cues.

Maybe the real Steve’s a dick, or just an above-average jock; maybe he had a knack for hanging out with real talent. Maybe he hit his head too hard on the landing and he’s not gonna be Captain anymore. On the flipside, if he really is smart, then putting him in a standard, modern hospital room and telling him the truth is going to have him clamming up and refusing to believe a goddamn thing he hears for a really long time.

The real question here is, how long it does it take for the man, the myth, the legend to notice? What does he do about it? How long does he wait to get his bearings, confirm his suspicions, and gather information before attempting busting out?

Turns out the answer’s about forty-five seconds.

Accepted as truth.

I’ve probably reblogged this before (or it’s sitting in my queue and idegaf.)

MCU Steve is what happens when you stick the best bits of every comics’-verse in a blender and add the one thing the comics don’t have the capacity to do: make the thought processes visible in a way that we visually understand that ISN’T a thought-bubble.

And it is glorious. Of the standalones, Thor and Cap are my favorites.

How to Get Away with Murder” Gay Sex Scenes Making You Squeamish?
I find myself cringing when his onscreen conquests say things like “he did this thing to my ass that made my eyes water.”
What, did he stick an onion up there or something?
I know many people love the series and I’m probably going to get a lot of pushback on this. I’m not trying to say my gut reaction is the right one. The purpose of this post is just to be honest about it, maybe work out what’s causing my “eww” reaction– and also ask if any of our readers are having a similar response.

Well glad to see you recognize you own internalized homophobia, for me it all sounds as a cry to be accepted, down play gay characters and de sexualize them so they are loved and accepted and our community doesn’t get criticized because this two characters. That’s at least what I got from this piece, that TBH could have been published in a personal blog, not as an article for this one, in my opinion.
But in a show like HTGAWM that not only is starting and establishing characters, traits and personalities, but also has shown us enough of the them to see that EVERYONE screws up, can be unlikeable, cheat, get things by any mean, kill and be as inhumane as one can be, that a gay sex scene treated as ANY other sex scene from every recent series is just laughable, for me at least.
When people think that showing a guy having sex because he has an agenda is worse than showing 4 people burning a body so they get rid of their DNA and protecting a murderer (that’s what it appears to be) then we know that the road ahead is still a long one. 
And on another note, were you as uncomfortable when they showed Michaela riding her boyfriend and then having an orgasm on screen? Or when she threatened to destroy him and his life if he ever made her look bad if he was caught or came out as Gay after they were married? No? Well….
I’m tired of shying away from sex between guys like it’s something to be ashamed of, I am tired of Gay characters that are barely there or used in only some kind of release, comic or dramatic. I am tired of hiding we LGBTQA have sexualities, varied as they are, that we are just there to complement lives and story lines.
A new Show always introduces a very raw material for their characters, because a Show intends to grow the character in front of the Viewer so they sympathize, so they can get a connection with it and identify with their arc and I have no doubts that this is the way they’re doing it in HTGAWM. Even more, the apparent format of the show is to showcase a Character with each episode in different ways. 
Seeing as The Backlot has praised shows with barely there LGBTQA characters and stories that only work for to advance and grow the Heterosexual ones this is a nice breath of fresh air and I feel like this kind of articles makes it harder to see the true representation that we are getting, as minimal as only this show (HTGAWM) doing it.

What the heck, thebacklot? No, seriously.
