roundhousechick  asked:

How do you approach designing outfits for female characters (particularly superheroes), considering the tendency/norm of hypersexualization of women in comics?

I think the problem with many suit designs for women is that they do not fit their personality. If a character is lascivious, then their clothing will reflect that. But if a character is shy, more than likely, their posture, style choice, and attire will reflect that sensitivity. I try to get into the mind of the character as much as possible. Consider character design like being a personal shopper for your imaginary friend!

Ok, so imagine what kind of a man Mon-el would have been right now, if he hadn’t been brainwashed by Daxam social norms for more than twenty years. Only 9 months of Kara and others influence and he went from a selfish asshole to a sweet, decent guy. We all are products of the society.

You know, I’m starting to think that Kara hasn’t really changed him, but  simply showed him who he always was, deep inside. And he just followed her example and slowly unveiled his true self.

If it’s not a beautiful message, then I’m freaking Queen Elizabeth.

I kinda see why we can't be a part of lgbt+... I mean if you're an het ace you kinda are straight... I kinda understand too that why we should be a part of lgbt because of some struggles some of us have... I don't know I just want this discourse to stop ;-;

Heteroromantic aces aren’t straight, though. They may not always suffer the explicit oppression of attraction to their same gender, but that is far from the only criterion one must meet to be accepted by Straightness and have unconditional access to its privileges. Failure to demonstrate and act upon normative levels of attraction to a binary opposite gender is sufficient in itself to cause exclusion from Straightness, which defines itself and maintains its hegemony with exhaustive lists of requirements. There is ample evidence of Straight people forcibly and violently excluding aces, and to erase that is exactly the problem

Asexuality is non-straight in itself, and asexuality is a significant and meaningful part of people’s identity. We cannot find acceptance, support, or the resources we need if we continue to cling to the heteronormative erasure that relegates us to our romantic orientations or discounts the role our asexuality plays in our understanding of ourselves, our experiences, and our relation to society.

Why are you right in your psychological theories and believes/norms? And why is everyone else wrong?

not so much “right” as it is i strongly operate off the principle that harm is a negative experience and you should not harm.

at the core of life is an aversion to harm. we avoid danger, developed ways to heal when it could not be escaped, form lasting memories of what has hurt us. a single celled organism flees from hostile environments. a dog would rather flee than bite, and cries when their tail is stepped on. a person usually wishes to live in comfort.

like, it’s a pretty complicated thing to just try and boil down to a “solid” summary. a lot of people sympathize with both the desire to do no harm and not be harmed. and, like, logically the principle holds up.

examine a behavior. consider the repercussions. who is impacted. how are they impacted. i’ve come to the conclusion that things like sexism and racism have a history of harm. by not adopting those behaviors, i cause less harm. and by fighting against the further development of those behaviors, i prevent further harm.

The hardest work can be recognizing how one’s own life is shaped by norms in ways that we did not realize, in ways that cannot simply be transcended. A norm is also a way of living, a way of connecting with others over or around something. We cannot ‘not’ live in relation to norms.

this session of dnd started out as a non-canon lighthearted beach episode where we were expected to just lay back and chill but by this point we’re having a three way kaiju battle between a giant gorilla, a t-rex, and a giant moth who used to be the party bard, the paladin, and the warlock respectively

Northern Lights shot with a Drone from O Z Z O Photography on Vimeo.

While we’ve seen countless images of the Aurora Borealis, OZZO Photography’s take is a bit different than the norm. Rather than use a still camera on a tripod, he sent his drone flying through the green-tinged world of Reykjanes Iceland for a unique and immersive perspective.

For anon…enjoy!

You clenched your jaw when you saw Cassian alone in Medbay. He wasn’t hurt, but he was alone. Considering he seemed to be avoiding you the last few days, that was all you needed. You stalked into the ward, already irritated. Cassian set down the datapad on the desk before turning around. His eyes widened when he saw you standing in front of him.

“Y-Y/N.”
You nodded. “Yeah. It’s me: the person you’ve been purposely avoiding Captain Andor.”
The man swallowed. “I, uh, need to-”
“What? Check reports? Eat? Turn off your dorm light again? What excuse have you come up with this time?”
He remained silent. You sighed, pinching the bridge of your nose.
“Look, I don’t what I did to make you hate me, but the least you could do is be professional about it. We aren’t in the academy where passive aggressiveness is the norm, okay-”
“You think I hate you?” he whispered.

You eyed the man, genuinely confused. He seemed in slight pain at the suggestion. He lowered his gaze, swallowing.

“I…I don’t hate you,” he murmured.
You took a step closer. “Then why are you avoiding me?”
“I’m jealous,” he admitted with a breath.
“Jealous? Why are you-”
“Because you’re with Ketter. I just…I really like you and,” he paused, “I guess I was upset that he got to you first.”

Softly smiling, you cupped the captain’s cheek. He kept his gaze off you, afraid of seeing pity. You pecked his lips, effectively shocking him. With furrowed brows, he studied your smirking features.

“I am confused,” he admitted after a long silence.
You smiled. “Ketter and I had one date, that’s it. I never thought of going further than that with him because,” you paused to chuckle, “I like you too, Cass. A lot.”

The smile that spread across the man’s face was enough to rival the gleam of the sun. Gently, you pulled the man in for another lingering kiss.

Question: Do men moan during sex? When Manon says something about how loud "they" must have been... I know a woman is mostly likely to moan...but do men? Oh... And how loud DO you think they were? 😉💀🗑😌

BAHAHAH! YES. MEN MOAN. But gender norms in force the idea that women should be very loud and orgasmic, and men should be grunt/moan quietly. I don’t think either of them was screaming out loud, but I guess I think they were both panting and grunting and moaning and groaning. And I guess I think that their bodies were making noise. So their saliva and lips, but also the sounds of sex itself. The slipping and sliding. And I’d wager that the bed (probably bolted down cuz it’s a boat, but also made of wood) probably groaned a bit.

So while I didn’t think they were super loud, I do think they sort of forgot where they were and made noise as they normally would. And because the Fae have super duper hearing, it wouldn’t have mattered how quiet they were. They would likely be overheard.

anonymous asked:

You have mentioned before that some people see markson as one dimensional when they pick and choose moments (the bad joke ones), what do you think is more to marksons relationship with each other

I think of them as mutually supportive friends who have known each other for a long time. And despite their different personalities have a lot of comforting common ground like with being foreigners in a new country where they went through a tiring training process on top of learning a new language and social norms. Their personality differences of being an extrovert and an introvert are things that they fully accept and have praised about one another too and that’s key in understanding the friendship beneath the old jokes they have made back and forth. ‬Jackson has been saying for a long time that Mark is more talkative now and they could talk all night if they are together and he also said being quiet isn’t a bad thing directly when talking about Mark too so there is more than the old wall jokes. Mark has made jokes about Jackson being too loud as well but he has also praised Jackson’s outgoing and humorous good nature

You’ve survived a lot of stumbling blocks and hurdled away many misadventures. You already drowned into the infinity of oceans and climb over both the capstone and rock bottom of mountains and valleys on your way to the pinnacle. I know you’ve been embarrassed a couple of times, you have been struggled to get out of bed because you had once lost your provocation to keep going, you have been feeling lost and an outcast to your social sphere, you have been engulfing your self with too much emotions that sometimes the ache and sting that persist to live inside of you hurts twice as much, you have been pushing your self so hard to live in accordance to the norms of the many, you have been trying to fit in to the society because you saw your worth weighing weightlessly on the scale, you have been de-escalated from academic and social facet and have been derailed from your goals, and I know that all this time, you are not living-that you are just pretending to live. I know you’re tired of secluding yourself beneath that mask. I know you are barely living under your own skin. I know you are not loving yourself as much as you did from three years ago. I know you are tired of this world. I know you are tired of merely surviving. But don’t give up just yet. What you think of yourself and what others think of you does not reflect your value, your aptitude, your capability, and your totality. There really will be days that you would feel that the weight of the world is o your shoulders. There will be days that you would feel lost. There will be days that you will stumble and you will fall and you will cry a river of tears. There will be days that rain would pour heavier than the usual. There will be days that it will all get tough. But you know what? You can stop surviving. You should start living. And by living, you do not endure with the world. You try to live with its callousness. You try to be gentle with yourself. You love more and despise less. You live with your own skin and let the mask fall off. You thank all your battles and cherish all your scars and reckon it all as good memoirs of your past adventures, and more than anything you learn that not all the time you have to jump of a cliff or fall from mountains. There will be days that you have to breathe deep then slowly, you fly!

A, B, O and Z for Zen please! ❤

Z for Zenny, haha!

[A] Aftercare

Zen is a big romantic, and a big sweetheart. If the two of you did anything rough, or out of the norm, right after he is quick to cuddle up and whisper so many praises in your ear. Telling you how wonderful you are and how great you sounded, and how amazing it felt for him.
[B] Body Part (their favorite of theirs & their partner)

He’s in love with his face (jk), but sexually on himself, he loves his dick. On his SO, it’s so hard for him to pick a part, but most likely the ass. Zen is definitively an ass man.

[O] Orgasm Denial (how do they do it, do they like it done to them)

It’s not something he’s personally into. If you wanted him to do it to you, he’s hardly be able to pull it off the first couple of times, and get confused that his light teasing isn’t what you wanted, but after a few times he’d get it down pat enough to have you aching the next morning.

For himself? Nothing he would do unless you wanted him to, and he’s whining the whole time, quick to beg and jerk his hips any time you even try to tease his cock.

[Z] Zzz (how quickly do they fall asleep, do they snuggle, etc)

Definitely snuggles. He doesn’t want you to feel used after sex, and will only not snuggle if you request it, but he’ll at least want to hold your hand.

But as soon as aftercare and cleaning up is done, he is out like a damn light.

the funniest thing about terfs creating “terf friendly spaces” is that their logic is because a few communities are becoming more accepting of trans women that their spaces are being invaded when in reality most spaces are exclusionary to trans woman anyway so creating these spaces is redundant since its the norm lol

I had a presentation and i was sweating so much from anxiety and simultaneously felt like i was in hell or not even among all these people. My face was dripping with sweat which never happens. And then i cried on the bus bc even tho i have meds i still am a mess and every future day feels like smth i dont want to do. I would honestly feel content if i could retire from society all together, except my loved ones. Everything else is hell. I dont want this normative experience of young adulthood. I want to live isolated and only focus on films, books and music.

the worst thing about Bacon Culture is its pervasiveness, participation in Bacon Culture is the default, it’s just assumed that when someone starts talking 2 you and they go “bacon bacon bacon bacon!” that you feel the same way when really you’re just chuckling awkwardly and not saying anything because you don’t even eat bacon but you would never reveal that 2 anyone and risk the social isolation that comes with not being Bacon Normative
