Seriously don’t it’s a trap

This is a lie.  Growing up can be completely awesome.  Being boring or letting your dreams die or giving up the fun things in your life are not requirements of getting older.

My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.

And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie.

Elizabeth Bear - My Least Favorite Trope (via feministquotes)

I’m all on board with this quote, but I feel like I must have missed something in GotG?  I don’t remember Gamora either training, mentoring, or being romantically involved with Star Lord.  And Peter never does “Man Up and Take Responsibility,” and that’s pretty much the hallmark of his character.  Did I miss something?

Fighter: I think there’s one of them snake people in there.

Wizard: You mean a naga?

Fighter: … Dude, I don’t think it’s okay for you to use that word.

However loving his parents may have seemed, he [Simon] knew that, scratch the surface, and they’d scream and run away. And here he’s confronted with a guy who is just everyting he thinks is wrong about a person, who comes back for him when the chips are down because he’s on his crew. To me, that’s a  real parent, and that is an extremely beautiful thing to get to, and I think it’s very real… But the most important thing about ‘Safe’ was that relationship.
