-bell hooks, Feminism is for Everybody
just going to emphasize that last sentence again: As long as females take up the banner of feminist politics without addressing and transforming their own sexism, ultimately the movement will be undermined.

BUT YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND
FINNICK WOULD HAVE BEEN THE GREATEST DAD
We wouldn’t have Peeta as a character and my life would be miserable. That would have been the outcome.
Hand on heart, it is almost as if TPTB are trolling the Peeta fandom (even though it does seem that the FB page is from the publishers rather than the studios but it is still poor timing!).
Also, screw the people on the FB page who seem to equate their perceptions of Peeta’s masculinity with his worth as a human being. Seriously, it is the twenty-first century and we are still hung up on stereotypes??
In all earnestness, I think that if Gale and Katniss are tributes, the Games proceed as usual, and there is no rebellion. I’m of the school that it is the very particular combination of Katniss and Peeta that inspires unrest and the ultimate rebellion. To me, it’s really Peeta’s romantic gambit that throws the Games (and, importantly, Katniss) off the Capitol-determined narrative of survival at any cost and sets the stage for the final defiance by Katniss and Peeta.
Also, I don’t see Gale as one to discount his chances of winning: I think he was sincere when he was encouraging Katniss in the book, and he has the same skill set. Plus, so long as ONE of them survives, both families would be okay so Gale has every motivation to try to win. Peeta didn’t think that he had any chance of winning, hence his strategy.
Both Katniss and Gale would score high, and both would be targets by the Careers, who would no longer be hampered by Peeta trying to throw them off Katniss’ track. I think that they would ally for at least part of the Games, but I can’t work out how long the alliance would last-Katniss is incredibly aware of the finite lifetimes of alliances. I do think that it would be incredibly unlikely that both would make it to the final showdown. I also kind of wonder who Haymitch would “pick” of the two of them.
