- i am a TWUNK a combination of TWINK and HUNK - so which one is the x and which one is the x (but replacing it with increasingly ridiculous comparisons a la the ‘feudal lord’ discourse) - using bland straight people names to express frustration with the hets eg ‘well, DEBORAH’ - move, im gay - ‘[mild inconvenience] is homophobic’ - macklemore invented the gays with his hit song ‘same love’ - macklemore died for the gays - macklemore didnt die for THIS - *touches anything* its gay now - calling things ‘gay’ in the same way straight people do because reclaiming things that are used to hurt us is what we do - ‘as a cissexual heterogender……..’ - acting disgusted when ur straight friends do anything pda - ‘not to be a stereotype, but-’
“Villainous”: Why you shouldn’t throw shit at this show
Okay, so over the past days you may noticed a lot of fanart and posts about a particular show: “Villainous” (or “Villanos” in spanish). This is actually a mini series that is transmited between comercials for Cartoon Network México. Is about a villain (Black Hat) who tries to make the most evil and succesful artefacts for villains, along with Dr Flug, Demencia and 5.0.5.
So, what’s the problem with this mini-series?
There’s a few flaws that people have been complaining about, the most important of those being Markiplier voicing 5.0.5, a problematic artist (LemonTeaFlower) working on this show, etc.
Ignoring those facts, “Villainous” is pretty funny and entertaining to watch, and the animation and art style is really good. Is not the humour that everybody likes, but I personally enjoy it. But actually neither the characters or the plot are the reason im encouraging you to support this show.
This is the first ever cartoon (for Cartoon Network) created entirely by mexicans.
As a mexican, I can’t describe how happy I am to know that my country is finally making big steps in the animation industry, this is a huge opportunity for people like me, who aspire to be an animator but don’t have the resources to get out of their country.
And, if this show gets enough positivity and fame, Ai Studios, the animation studios who made this show, might actually do more cartoons! Better cartoons, with better plots and characters!
Let me tell you something, if Ai Studios doesn’t start making more cartoons, there’s literally no job opportunity in Mexico for aspiring animators. You either go to the U.S or forget about animation.
And yeah, this show might seem cringey, (well, it started developing in 2007, what did you expect?) and as I said it has some problematic aspects, but I dont think this is the right time to start making callout posts and discourse blogs for this cartoon. It hasn’t even aired in the U.S yet and there are already pleople complaining. And I don’t blame them, I would callout those things too if I didn’t already know how important this show is for Ai Studios, how important this show is for mexicans.
Many of the people who complain about it don’t even know that this show is made by mexicans and the opportunities it could give to us. So, what i’m asking you to do is simple.
Don’t throw shit at this show.
I’m not asking you to praise it, I’m not asking you to make fanart for it. I’m asking you to leave it alone, and leave alone the people who are enjoying it.
How can we do better if you don’t even give us the opportunity to make more cartoons?
So yeah, that’s basically it. I’m not saying everyone should watch it and enjoy it, I mean, if you want to do it go ahead. I’m just saying it would be kind of egoistical to make discourse blogs and callout posts for the first mexican cartoon made by a new animation studio that just came out 3 days ago.
A few days ago, Kevin Pillar, a center fielder for the Blue Jays, directed a homophobic slur towards pitcher Jason Motte. The next day, the Blue Jays organization suspended Pillar for two games—without pay. His pay, along with an undisclosed fine, was donated to an LGBTQ+ organization. Both Pillar and the Blue Jays released public apologies, and Pillar reached out to Motte personally to apologize. The MLB is also investigating the incident.
The other day, Getzlaf used a homophobic slur in a playoff game. He was fined $10k. The money will go to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund. Getzlaf won’t address the fine and the incident until after Saturday’s game.
This is, frankly, a game he shouldn’t even be playing. What the Blue Jays and the MLB did with Pillar is the BARE MINIMUM for a sports league that truly hopes to become an inclusive league.
Ryan Getzlaf is the captain of the Ducks. He wore Pride Tape on his stick during Pride Night. He is also a nominee for the Messier Leadership Award. He needs to be made an example of.
If the NHL wants this stuff out of the league, they need to dish out REAL penalties. That means playoff suspensions.

the first time harry and draco met properly, draco offered his friendship and harry only refused because he’s loyal quickly and draco was being quite rude
the first time sirius and remus saw each other after thirteen years, snape said “you two fight like a married couple” and remus was immediately on sirius’ side, without questioning anything
and then i feel happy, because even if most of the ships on this list aren’t canon and/or endgame, i will always regard them as canon :)
and if this list made you happy, then that’s a hella rad bonus
