Are you basically saying Asian guys look hot only if they're drawn to look like white guys with "asian eyes"?
what the fuck no. i didnt say anything even remotely close to that.
im saying shiro isnt drawn like an asian dude, hes drawn like a white dude. a white dude with black hair and “eyeliner” which parades itself as being asian features but completely misses the mark. so when people praise shiro for being super hot, they are praising him for looking like a conventionally attractive white man. its a mockery of diversity.
In ur opinion what r Jensen and Misha's best angles
i’m not an expert on misha’s appearance and i don’t want to piss off the misha stans so i’m only gonna answer about jensen and probably piss off the jensen stans
this is his best angle
shot toward his left side, with his head either angled a little bit down (first gif) or a little bit up (second gif)
with jensen, it’s all about his nose, ears and jaw.
if u get him head-on, his ears pull focus away from his face. (i mean, they’re cute as shit, but u get what i mean.)
when it’s shot toward his right side with his head tilted up, his nose looks extra thin and pointy, also pulling a bit too much focus. however, this is definitely the best angle for that magic jawline and with making his chin look more defined.
shots toward his right side also make him look 10x more masculine than he does from his left. it’s because of the way his nose curves. from his left, it looks like it curves up in a cute little point. from his right, it looks like it curves down. i prefer the more feminine angle, and it seems spn does, too, because most shots are toward his left. (go watch the episode misha directed. every fuckin shot of dean is toward his left side. same, misha. same.)
evidenced most obviously in his selfies, jensen ackles……has no chin. or a lot of chins. it’s hard to tell which. in selfie angles, his face kind of just disappears into his neck and makes it look like he doesn’t have a jawline. now, i’m all about a pudgy chin and soft jaw, but i’d prefer jensen’s face not to bleed into his neck like in these selfies.
his jawline is a mystery even to me and is really more dependent on how he moves his face than what angle the camera is. however, there is obviously a major difference between this
where he has no defined jawline whatsoever and looks very soft
which u can cut a loaf of bread with.
i think the reason why i’m so drawn to jensen’s face is because, to me, it looks completely different from every goddamn angle. he could move his face half an inch to the left and i’d gasp in shock at how different he looks. i’d say he doesn’t really have a bad angle, but i definitely prefer some of his angles over others.
(all gifs are from season 9 to avoid a major difference in age or haircut.)
im not saying it’s not a coincidence that mat and hugo, the characters with the darkest skin, get the least amount of fanart and attention but….it’s not a coincidence that mat and hugo, the characters with the darkest skin, get the least amount of fanart and attention
Maybe, if I post every time this happens, abled people will stop thinking that this sort of thing is rare.
A while back I was sitting by the restaurant in Ikea and using my phone while I waited for Marvin to buy some things.
I was seated at one of four high-backed chairs arranged around a low coffee table. Across the table from me was a stranger, his young son sat in the chair to the right of me, and his daughter, who was about nine-years-old, sat on the floor at the coffee table. She was colouring and her brother was playing on a DS.
Their father stared at me while pretending he wasn’t. It’s pretty obvious when someone is watching you from eight feet away, though. I didn’t get angry vibes so I wasn’t concerned and just pointedly ignored him while catching Pidgey after Pidgey.
My phone had a semi-transparent, soft plastic case on it. I usually covered it with cute stickers. At that time, it had large words written in sharpie on the back that said, “It’s rude to stare”.
I was absorbed in my game when the stranger across from me laughed suddenly, loudly, and pointed me out to his daughter.
“Her phone says, ‘It’s rude to stare’,” he said.
He chuckled and looked at my face, expecting an explanation.
I stared at him.
He stared back.
“Oh, yeah. People stare at me a lot,” Just like you were, I thought. I waved my phone to show off the words. “So I wrote that on there. So, yeah.”
I went back to my game. Guy chuckled again.
“Really, people stare at you? Why?” He asked.
I looked up from my phone. I stared at him.
He stared back. I raised my eyebrows. He kept waiting for an answer.
I held up the butterfly-printed cane that had been leaning against my legs by way of explanation. “Sometimes I use a walker or wheelchair, too.”
“And people stare?” He pressed.
“Yep,” I said shortly.
“Wow. Well, you know, I think it’s probably because of their own personal fear.”
I seriously bristled at that. The tone was awful, really patronizing.
“Yeah. Seeing disabled people in public is a real shock. We remind people of their own mortality,” I said humourlessly, adding in some sarcastic laughter for good measure. I tried to signal my disinterest by lowering my head and leaning over my phone screen.
“Yeah-” he said, charging full speed ahead like he didn’t even need me for this conversation. He clearly had something to say all prepared.
"And you know, it’s funny. But I used to be scared of- people- people with disabilities,” he said, with a smile and lean-in, touching his fingertips together, making me want to punch his face.
I was in a bit of social shock. I just kept thinking, are you kidding me? This Ikea food court confession is happening right now, huh?
“Not physical disabilities, but mental disabilities.”
He was so smarmy, you guys. When he said that, I think my soul left my body. And I had no idea how to either respond or extricate myself reasonably.
I hesitated, looked from this guy to his children, who were watching the exchange with awkward interest.
“Oh. Uh. Well, I’m autistic, so…” I let my words trail off. To this day I have no idea where that sentence would have gone.
“Oh. Oh! But I mean, you can’t tell,” he turned tomato red. “You’re so well-spoken and- I guess you could say that you have really overcome.”
As he was fumbling, I was giving him an exaggerated but sincerely felt grimace and an unimpressed "ehhh”.
At his pronouncement of my overcoming, I sat up straight and said, loudly and pissed enough that his children started looking worried, “Uh, yikes. No.”
Guy’s daughter looked like she would rather he did anything but continue talking, but that’s what he did. Like any allistic abled white dude worth his salt /s, he powered through, ignoring my obvious and projected displeasure.
“But, I mean. In school, it’s funny, because it ended up that most of my friends were handicapped. I guess I kind of protected them-” His voice took on an artificially soft, sticky quality. It was at this moment that I snapped.
“Okay. I’m going to cut you off there,” I said. I put my hand up. His tomato face spoiled.
“What? Why?” He seemed torn between expressing frustration and wanting to appear kind-hearted and open-minded in front of his children.
“Well. Uh. Ugh,“ I looked at his kids, wondering how harsh or how kind I should be. I hated that he put me in this spot. In that moment I hated him so much.
"Well, you’re saying a lot of stuff that non-disabled people think is nice to hear, but it’s not. It’s just- it’s just not.” I knew it was pointless to try to explain. My words were failing fast. He didn’t really care, anyway.
“I wouldn’t even be able to explain it to you,” I shrugged.
He gaped at me. Now he was angry. This wasn’t going how he had wanted it to.
“I know you’re coming from a good place. But it’s not nice. It’s just not… yeah.” I gripped the handle of my cane in one hand and my phone, Pokémon Go forgotten, in the other. I fought the urge to literally run away. I felt the surreal pressure of my behaviour being one of these kids’ formative disability-related experiences.
“Oh. Uh. Well. Okay. Sorry,” he said, embarrassed, not sorry. “And uh, thanks for saying that,” he said, trying to get me back. I looked away.
“I just-” he started. Even his children looked unhappily surprised that he was trying for that last word.
“I just want to say that you’re great.”
I didn’t look at him. I smiled at his daughter, who smiled back out of habit, more confused than anything. His son looked down at his DS, secondhand embarrassment turning him red too.
“Hmm. Well, your kids seem nice,” I offered breezily.
After that, I moved away from the circle of green chairs and sat in an uncomfortably high stool in the corner. I hid there, head down, my hands shaking very slightly, feeling paranoid. Like I failed. And that my friends, is ableism.
the largest mass shooting in american history happened in vegas only a little over a year since the LAST largest mass shooting in american history that happened in orlando. america breaks its own record way too quickly.
the shooter was an old white dude. he was a terrorist. he was not mentally ill, and even if he happened to be mentally ill that sure as hell isnt why he shot those people. he wasn’t a lone wolf, whatever that means. he was a terrorist. if the shooter had turned out to be a poc like every racist was hoping for, people would be screaming “terrorism” until their throats chapped, well this is no different. this was terrorism committed by a white man (and statistically white men are the ones who commit the most mass shootings in america anyways so this really shouldn’t be news)
we need guns to be banned, or AT LEAST heavily regulated. at this point anyone who says otherwise is not only an idiot, but they are insulting the victims of vegas, of orlando, of sandy hook, and of whatever other place a mass shooting has taken place. i would try to name them all but there are too many to remember, to count, to keep track of. it happens so often here, it’s easy to almost feel as if mass shootings are normal and something that just happens. well it isn’t and they aren’t. this is terrorism, terrorism shouldn’t be the norm. we need to stop supplying these people with weaponry, with GUNS. if anyone tells you “now isn’t the time to talk about guns” they are full of shit.
I think the core thing that caused The Last Airbender to be the horrible, piece of shit movie that it is was the fact that Shyamalan clearly looked down on the TV series as just some dumb children’s show and not for the good thing it is. It really shows through in the movie that he thought that the show’s just a mindless cartoon made to momentarily distract children too dumb to comprehend the world around them. That was his first of many mistakes, and that, combined with his incompetence, laid the foundation for the film.
-He was this big cliff hanger that we were all excited to find out about and we were expecting something really cool (Ex. I thought it may be Krypto) and it wasn’t. It was a bland boring character who was a huge let down.
-He actually fucking said he wanted to go back to his home planet where he could objectify women
-His introduction to the show minimized the role of James, who played a huge part in Kara’s character development and was her love interest for an entire season. The show also wrecked that relationship with little explanation and left Karolsen shippers upset and confused.
-He owned slaves
-Literally all of last season Kara was learning that she was just as important as Kara as she was as Supergirl and the other night her telling Mon-El that having him and being Supergirl was enough. That is an entire lesson going to waste
-He never listens to Kara and goes against what she’s saying and then acts like she should be happy with how he’s acting anyway
-He fucking owned slaves
-He literally has no purpose except Kara’s love interest which not only makes her look bad but it’s a waste of a character who had the potential to be awesome (Ex. Mon-El could have become Superboy and gotten together with M'gann/Miss Martian. But that would have been an interracial couple and as we have learned by now. There’s a limit to how diverse a show can be) but instead he’s a useless and wasted character
-Ahem… he was a slave owner
-wow he’s only been lying to kara from the very start of their relationship about who he really is. straight people have this weird thing with “side hoes” and cheating tho so maybe being a fucking liar is just you guys’ thing idk
-Mon-El is a white man. Not to say that we all hate white men. But look at this little set of math equations I put together to explain:
•Kara+Mon-El=more straight white people with no on screen chemistry???
-HE OWNED SLAVES DUDE
if I missed anything someone would like to add, please do
(ps mon-el owned slaves)
