ahh im so tired of seeing white people being glorified for stealing poc roles lmao…… and im so tired of white people being cast to play poc characters…. im tired of seeing healthy and positive poc representation being stolen left and right and im tired of people trying to excuse it or guilt trip people who are actually affected by this into accepting this kinda stuff. Its not actual rep and we shouldnt be happy w it or accept anything. its time people understand that representation REALLY fucking matters and this half assed attempt to represent us isnt shit. I dont wanna see white people pretending they understand or they live in the reality i live, fuck that. Cast actual poc. Its not that hard.
It’s not even a shounen ai.
It’s a sports anime with a canon gay couple.
Please please please, I don’t want to alienate LGBT representation in anime any further than it already has by placing YOI in the yaoi category just because of Victuuri. Rarely do we see gay representation outside of yaoi (if you even consider that representative…) so I want to keep this intact.
I got an anonymous request to make a tutorial on how I pick what colours I’m going to be using, so here’s the end result of said tutorial. It is rendering right now and I should have it uploaded in 7 hours (because that’s when I’ll be out of class)… assuming the video renders and exports properly. :U
– update: Still can’t get this video to export properly sooo…. hhh patience. I’ll get it up, I will. I might have to separate the video into smaller clips. – ANOTHER UPDATE: I NOTICED THEIR NOSES WERE VERY WRONG AND I FIXED THEM
Bellamy puts his arms around Clarke, helping her position the rifle correctly. Clarke is focused on the weapon, but Bellamy is suddenly thrown by the intimacy of having her so close. A beat, then, awkwardly […]
the most platonic script i’ve ever read in my entire life
People are like “ew lancelot is abusive and gross, fuck you if you ship it”
Like bruh. Lotor isn’t even in the show yet. VLD isnt the exact replica of the old show, clearly they’ve made a lot of changes. What if Lotor is a good guy in this version? What if Lotor wants to destroy his father’s empire but Haggar & Zarkon have yet to know? If i recall, Lotor hates his dad in the original show anyway, why not turn him into a rebel?
In any case, Lotor hasn’t even gotten a second of screen time so like ??? How are you making these assumptions ??? Chill.
Some things I think people need to understand about Killing Stalking
To start, I was to preface this by saying this is coming from someone who typically doesn’t like these types of stories (I like psychological thrillers, but not too big into gore and such) and, this is coming from a gay person (a girl who likes girls). So please, Don’t say I like KS for “””yaoi”””
It seems many on tumblr have an innate hatred for KS…without having ever read it. “It’s problematic!” you scream, “It’s abusive!” yes…yes, it is. And what many fail to understand is that these are main parts of the story. The relationship between Yoonbum and Sangwoo is never shown in a positive light, every interaction is menacing and foreboding (even the “lovey” seeming ones) it’s all portrayed in a manner that just screams “Stockholm Syndrome” and the more the story goes on, the more we as readers see the deterioration of Yoonbum’s love for Sangwoo and his desperation to escape (he even has thoughts of killing him, for christs sake). It’s an abusive relationship….portrayed as an abusive relationship. I will admit, some fans do romanticize it, but that’s no fault of the stories own or the author, that’s a whole other conversation. Abusive relationships are real, and it should be no surprised to see one portrayed in a story, especially a story such as this.
“It’s homophobic!!” …what? Are people suggesting that because it’s a gay abusive relationship, that makes it homophobic? I’d say to think that every gay relationship is bright and happy and healthy is slightly homophobic in it’s own right. We’re just like anyone else, gay relationships can be just as toxic and unhealthy as another relationship. And sure, Sangwoo says some homophobic things, but he also comes to accept that side of his sexuality too (he’s also a serial killer so….what are you really expecting)
KS is a psychological horror featuring a gay toxic, abusive relationship. It doesn’t glorify these things. Are there some problematic KS fans? Definitely, but just because someone reads KS doesn’t automatically make them a shitty abusive scumbag like some of you seem to be thinking (looking at you, rude anons in my ask box). Look, I get it if KS isn’t your cup of tea, it’s definitely not for everybody. But don’t go around assuming things and attacking people when you don’t truly understand what you’re talking about. KS portrays abusive and problematic things, but does that make it problematic itself? I don’t think so, it’s a horror story, and has a plot and characters to fit that. Sangwoo is a merciless serial killer, is he sometimes portrayed sympathetically and given a background? Sure. But Criminal Minds does the same thing with it’s serial killers, why arent you complaining about that? Jojo’s Bizzarre adventure does that with Kira and he’s one of the most believable and effective villains i’ve ever seen. And Sangwoo is just that, a villain, just because he can be portrayed sympathetically and given a personality doesn’t detract from that. It’s never really been implied that Sangwoo is a good person that deserves good things. Do some fans seem him that way, or see him a positive light and want him and Yoonbum together all lovey dovey? Sure, theyre out there. But that’s them and their prerogative, not the story (I don’t agree with that but that’s them, not me) Do some people only read for ~yaoi~ they sure do. But again, that’s them, NOT the story itself.
But you can’t blame the story for some of the fans or your own assumptions about it. KS is a psychological horror, it’s plot is well thought out, its characters are believable and everything is portrayed amazingly through the writing and art. If you think of KS as a “love story” then yeah, it’s “problematic” but that’s not what it is. It’s HORROR, and it’s horror done right.

@ my fellow cis people: think before you ask inappropriate questions. Asking a trans person if they’ve “had the surgery” is asking them a very personal question not only about their medical history, but about their genitals. Would you like a stranger to ask you about your genitals? How about in a public setting? Trans people deserve privacy as much as we do, so mind your own business, especially if you don’t know them.
