I hate that every time I point out sexism in the comics industry and fandom people immediately accuse me of hating men. I DON’T hate men. I’m married to a man that I think is wonderful and I’ve talked to countless men on this website who I think are smart, funny, and respectful people. What I DO hate is misogyny and the people who perpetrate it. 

During the time that I have been blogging about Batman, I’ve received several messages from girls who tell me that they are made to feel uncomfortable or even had male fans act hostile towards them because they are women who enjoy comics. THAT is the kind of behavior that I want to eliminate and destroy. No girl should ever be afraid to read a comic book or voice her opinion on it because she’s worried that someone will make fun of her or call her slurs. That is unacceptable and disgusting and we need to work together to make sure that it doesn’t happen anymore. We need to start treating one another as equals and calling out people who perpetuate hatred towards women. 

So no, I don’t hate men. I hate the sexism that permeates nerd culture and makes it an unwelcome, hostile environment, and I fully support anyone of any gender who works to dismantle it.

Sorry, I’m hijacking this ask meme question because there’s a thing I’ve wanted to talk about forever. I wasn’t planning to, but before I knew it, I ended up writing this whole spiel, so here we go:

S: What’s a headcanon you have?

I don’t know if this is really a headcanon, and I don’t know if this is an original idea at all, but I’ve always thought that there was an important distinction between Cosima saying Rachel was raised totally self-aware and Rachel saying she has been self-aware since she was a child.

“Being raised” a certain way implies that she has always known, that she was never told anything otherwise. “Since she was a child” implies that she was told at some point in her childhood, and I think that makes a huge difference in terms of the effect on her psychological development.

Rei being the very definition of For the team

Okay i am acting like an actual 5 year old right now, because I know anime adaptations aren’t a 100% through on manga and that whole deal, but I’m genuinely upset they left this out.

Because this was a very substantial initial little stage of development for Yamaguchi, because the burden of being the only first year who’s not a regular really weights on him later on, and it’s some of what drives him to try so hard to get better. He doesn’t have something fundamental or special like Hinata’s physical abilities, Kageyama’s skill or Tsukishima’s height; he only has this desire to want play with everyone else. And that’s exactly what makes him try twice as hard and try to be as good as he can so he can be of some use for the team (and it pays off to an extent, if the latest chapters are anything to go by), and it makes you understand what he got of volleyball and how that perception is changing now that he’s in Karasuno with all that wonderful people.

The symbolism of how Tsukishiima is the only one not looking back at him in this sequence is also so important to the progressive evolution of their relationship later on. I’ve beaten this horse constantly, but I’ll always repeat myself: Tsukishima and Yamaguchi’s relationship is one of the most evolving ones, particularly from a personal and interdependent focus, and the fact that to everyone they seem like this irregular duo, a friendship where the scales are all on Tsukishima’s side (which to them isn’t exactly that way, but it’s not the point of this post) and how that displays on their take on volleyball is super significant to their posterior interactions. Specially when in a certain manga chapter Yamaguchi is the one leaving Tsukishima behind, and it bothers him so much he decides to take action and culminate in the famous ch.88 scene.

It’s just a tiny cap, but it signifies a lot to set the path to their mutual development and I’m just really sad they left it out, it didn’t take more than 6~10 seconds to do it to establish something that is important to Yamaguchi’s growth

Not to mention I was really excited about seeing baby middle-school Yamaguchi with his horrible haircut and he was nowhere to be seen B(

and idk man maybe I’m just being a huge crybaby because I’m a Yamaguchi loving idiot but exactly because of that I think leaving this out makes me ache, because the monologue really does get the gears going for what’s later on
