Ok… so making a style post was a better thing for my brain than I thought it would be. I’m starting to accept that my body looks like my body. It is not going to ever be the body of a 25 year old androgynous model. It’s just not. I’m starting to look like I’m in my 40′s and that’s OK because I’m not going to stop being in my 40′s until I’m in my 50s. My chest size is my chest size and that doesn’t have to have any bearing on how I express my gender any given day (especially now that I’ve found some button down shirts I can wear). And I’m finally starting to really accept that being non-binary doesn’t mean I have to wear exclusively androgynous clothes, or that I can’t wear skirts, or that when I wear masc. things I look like a frumpy, lazy mom.
I’m me. My clothes can conform to who I am. They don’t have to be a costume, they don’t have to be armor, they can just be an expression of me.
Even if the only thing I’m expressing is “It’s fucking hot and why the hell doesn’t the A/C in my car work better????” That’s a fine sentiment to express.
Some initial outfit/armor concepts for my fantasy Haikyuu au HERE ヽ(・∀・)ﾉ they’re all going to change later probably heh.
It was pretty challenging trying to get all of them to fit their mascot (or in this case, their kingdom’s deity haha), so it’s a bit sloppy but at least it was fun to do. And I totally copped out on drawing their head gear lol. I’ll do one for the royals next though (oikawa/goshiki/kenma/kageyama).
Some quick background on the designs below the cut, if you’re interested:
Honestly, I know you are all coming at Jeremy and rightfully so but screw Melissa in particular. Because she is the lead. She is the main character. She is the role model of the cast, above anyone else. She is the one who holds the most responsibility. Not only to be a good role model but to be a feminist because that is what the show and character is about. And not whatever she is because it certainly isn’t feminism. Like yeah, she went to a women’s march. Nice. Yet she openly mocks and ridicules wlw. When she is the star of the show and when taking in such an important role she signed up for all the extra responsibility. This is a show where she plays Supergirl, a female superhero. As a lead. And a show with wlw canon representation. She plays a character that is meant to be the embodiment of acceptance, open mindedness, female empowerment and feminism in general. Yet she was having fun being homophobic on camera, on purpose, at a convention about said show, for the fans to watch, knowing most of the audience is lgbt.
Like this isn’t even about ships. The actors were not simply mocking a ship when they did that. Or making a joke. They were mocking the concept behind it. They were mocking the fact so many wlw saw two women on tv and thought maybe they could be together, maybe they wouldn’t be straight. They were mocking these wlw viewing themselves as these characters or seeing them as characters validating their identity. They find that funny. Melissa, who is playing Supergirl and has become a role model to young girls everywhere, openly mocked women even daring to relate to those characters and hoping that they could end up together.
Young girls everywhere will see these actors they look up to that play characters they look up to mock wlw. These girls will feel like being attracted to girls is ridiculous and wrong. Because they saw these grown adults mock and invalidate it. This is a show for families and for young girls in particular. Having the cast do this is awful. It goes against everything the show should stand for. Everything Supergirl and Kara as a character should stand for.
Not to mention how it validates homophobia. It will validate homophobes everywhere. In fact, it already has. I’ve already seen so many homophobic posts because of this. Because the cast was homophobic so everyone thinks it is okay to be that way. Young people learn from media. Everyone knows that. Young people will watch this video and repeat such behavior. They will start to think being lgbt is bad. That shipping gay pairings is ridiculous. This validates all that negativity.
Basically, Melissa should get as much or even more backlash. Not because Jeremy isn’t to blame but because she supported such behavior. And not only that but she joined in. While not only being one of the characters in such ship, therefore someone these women admired, but also while being the lead character of the show
You know who was the only person there that showed any actual professionalism and female empowerment/feminism? Katie McGrath, who tried to give the lgbt fans watching, wlw in particular, validation despite the fact the rest of the cast were mocking them and her for doing so. She went against her cast to try and make sure these young girls knew it is okay and that they are valid. Bless her. Because she did not have to do that. In fact, if anyone should have done that it was Melissa, who again, is the lead and the biggest role model. Yet Katie went out of her way to be the only one to actually display a good set of morals and risk ridicule for the sake of being a good person. She was in a toxic and tbh weirdly aggressive homophobic environment with people she has to continue working with and still decided to speak up about it. That is being a good person.
And then we have Chris Wood mocking the situation again and interrupting Katie. Because of course, the guy that is playing the love interest of Supergirl would do something gross like that. Not only that, but it adds up with all the Mon-El issues that teach young girls that they should look for abusive disrespectful entitled lazy guys who do not listen to them and then they should spend their time babysitting the guys until they are sorta barely decent boyfriends. Oh, and that these guys should definitely be their whole world and priority. Very progressive. Not to mention this was the same guy that said he loved the negative things about this ship. Which really means he ships it because he enjoys the abuse.
The worst thing is they knew exactly what this would do. Jeremy was purposely insulting the fans as he looked straight at the camera and aggressively yelled it out. He was yelling out homophobic things not to joke around with the cast but directly at the lgbt audience. Melissa called mocking lgbt people “brave”. You know what is brave? To dare to identify as such. Or to dare to identify with a character on tv when you know they will never be written that way. Or to openly support a gay ship despite the fact they are either canon and treated horribly or they are never canon. That’s brave. Being openly homophobic? That has been standard behavior since forever. That’s bigoted and close minded. It’s cowardly, not brave.
And don’t get me started on how they wrote Sanvers into their show as an attempt to lure lgbt fans in and exploit them for views yet everyone in the crew/cast are clearly homophobic. The crew is included for the treatment of their canon lesbian ship. They know the lgbt fans are watching because there is a wlw ship yet they had no shame in being homophobic on camera for everyone to see. If anyone had any doubt about why they wrote Sanvers now they have confirmed it exists for ratings only. Because clearly, the concept of women loving women is not realistic enough for them. Melissa supporting Sanvers? A publicity stunt because she obviously loves mocking wlw and their ships.
Im not even going to get into Jeremy’s “apology” that was really him making himself sound like the victim and acting like lgbt fans were overreacting and dramatic about it. We apparently can’t take a joke. Okay, but maybe being homophobic isn’t a joke nor is it funny. We have to deal with homophobia every single day. It is something that oppresses us. It is something that is used against us in every way. Homophobia can literally threaten our lives yet somehow we are supposed to laugh about it like it’s hilarious? Oh yeah, how funny. Silly wlw thought for once two women could be in a relationship or that they could simply pretend they are in one. So funny. Hilarious.
Great role models. Amazing. The CW should be very proud. Somehow there’s only like 3 decent people in the cast now and only one of them is brave enough to speak up against homophobia. And it isn’t the lead actress that claims to be a feminist. No. She’s too busy being homophobic.
I have a personal vendetta against someone wildly more successful than me so I’m trying to make them lazy.
You don’t know how to relax so I’m literally filling you with laziness but you just won’t stop.
I work at an animal shelter and I sometimes make the animals fit what people are looking for by removing or adding laziness. You haven’t lived until you saw a cat with 0% laziness.
Aciukinesis - Control Sharpness
Did you know that most man made spheres are still more jagged than the earth itself?
You haven’t experienced softness until you felt a perfectly smooth ball. There’s also not a lot of traction so please cup it in your hands.
I’m one of the only chefs here that doesn’t have some sort of hot or cold ability. But me being very clumsy, the ability to make all my knives dull saves my fingers a lot.
I keep making all the knives in the kitchen blunt so I can watch my parent-in-law get frustrated and lose their dominance over me.
Aerokinesis - Control Air
I can control the air but that doesn’t do a lot so I just got a few wind turbines for my property, so I get power for free. It’s a small win, but I like it.
Sometimes I go to the beach and set up a kite rental booth while making it windy. It doesn’t make much but it helps with rent.
No one thinks that controlling air is that cool of a super power until I take it out of their lungs.
Aestatekinesis - Control Summer
I hate sweating so I made this summer really mild but it’s affecting my town’s farming economy.
I forgot that Alaska’s still supposed to be pretty cold in the summer and I may have made the ice caps melt a little more.
Aggressiokinesis - Control Anger
I work in tandem with a crisis clinic and so far, there isn’t a patient I can’t calm down.
My anti-aggression dog classes are the best in the business. I even stop by pet shelters.
I just love watching these people tear each other limb from limb with blind rage. I’m gonna be sad to see you go though.
Aidoskinesis - Control Humidity
One of the only things good about my powers is that I can make my boss’ office so humid they have horrible hair and sweat stains for their meeting with corporate.
My greenhouse is always at the perfect humidity even in the dead of winter.
I’m gulty of making someone so humid they’ve taken off their shirt before. It’s a blessing.
Alcokinesis - Control Alcohol
You always get too out of hand with your drinking so I just take the alcohol content out of your drinks.
My coworker bugs the hell out of me and they’re going in for a company-wide drug test today. I made their breakfast have a healthy amount of alcohol.
It’s very fun to see someone pantamime being drunk when they think they are when in actuality I’ve taken all the alcohol out of their drink.
Amokinesis - Control Love and Desire
Shit are you actually in love with me or did I manipulate you into liking me?
As a joke I was going to make my classmate fall in love with whoever came in next but you did and now I’m very jealous.
I make people forget about me when we break up so it’s easy on them but I can’t get rid of my own love for them, even when there’s no chance of getting back together ever now.
Anthracokinesis - Control Coal
I like being alone so I move to Centralia and just turn off the surrounding coals when I’m walking over them. It’s very quiet but very smoky. I need to leave town to buy a gas mask.
I bought a bit of land and made a little mine before buying a truckload of coal and just stiking it in the walls. Then, I compressed it all into diamonds.
So my parents gave me a little tough love as a child and gave me a piece of coal one christmas. I’ll admit, I was a naughty child. But that piece of coal made me learn of my powers. It’s the only piece I’ll never manipulate anymore.
Antikinesis - Control Antimatter
No you can’t come to my antimatter dimension. It’s very private.
I think we had a good run, I’m just gonna get a black hole in here real quick.
I always wanted to visit Chernobl, good thing I can just sort of turn off the gamma radation and go for a walk.
Argentokinesis - Control Silver
Whoops I’m in werewolf country better make all my clothes and stuff have silver mesh.
“Yes this is genuine gold” I say to someone when I took the silver content out of a ring.
So I don’t have the best impulse control. I made my rude neighbor’s prized dog into a silver statue and now it’s like… eighty sets of flatwear.
Arthrokinesis - Control Joints
I may be a very inactive person, but damned if my joints ever pop. I’m doing sprints anytime I feel like it.
I got too excited testing how much I could let my joints move and may have dislocated by shoulder.
Yes, I tried to suck my own dick. Yes, I should have realized that there is actually bone stopping me from bending my spine like that. Don’t laugh at me.
Asterokinesis - Control Cosmic Energy
I’ve ascended to be the god of the universe and all I want to do is to stop being in charge and just have some time off for once.
I saw how much earth was desperate to meet other beings so I made some closer planets support life.
I’m not just some giant being in space. I’m a regular person. I buy groceries, collect rocks, and I’m desperate for people to never know I made them.
Astrakinesis - Control Astral Energy
I am nearly constantly disassociating. The good news is that I have like thirty dream selves I can be while the others go on autopilot.
I can see spirits so I just deal with ghosts for a living. Most of the time they’re just confused.
I can work as a medium for ghosts to talk through but you roleplaying with your dead datemate is the last straw.
Astronkinesis - Control Remnants of Cosmic Substances
I realized that in my lifetime I would never see a mission to a star so I made some much closer to us.
I don’t feel like this world’s really going anywhere. I’m just gonna supernova the sun next weekend.
My tarot card readings are always perfect and I sincerely want you to leave the country.
Atmokinesis - Control Weather
I am the best weather forecaster the world has ever seen. I work for a small town in rural country though. I think I have five hundred viewers on a daily basis?
I always make sure my neighbor’s/parent’s/friend’s/etc farm gets the best weather.
My entrences are always punctuated with lightening and I love it.
Atomkinesis - Control Atoms
It’s like 3-D printing, only much better. Check out this awesome watch I made.
I hope you like nuclear wastelands, because that’s what you’re getting.
Surprise, your house is full of radon gas!it’ll stay that way until you do what I say.
Audiokinesis - Control Sound
Nothing quite like a day of absolute silence when you have an audio processing disorder.
Movies are very fun to watch when I can make one character silent and just ad lib the dialogue.
The fact that I can chat style silence someone is the best.
Aurokinesis - Control Aura
I can see how people act before ever talking to them, that’s why you’re the only one in the room I’m going to talk to.
Where I live, auras are very important. So I can easily hide among them as someone without giving an inkling of malice.
I personally hate you so now you get too radiate bad energy until you apologize.
Aurokinesis - Control Gold
I’m allergic to what they use in fake gold but I have no money for good jewelry so I just make it gold after I buy it for cheap.
It’s not quite the Midas touch, but I’ve pulled that prank before.
I make golden jewelry and sculptures by making them out of clay/wood/etc and turning them into gold for huge profits.
Autumnuskinesis - Control Autumn
My hometown capitalizes on my love of pumpkins and sweater weather by becoming a destination for those looking to beat the heat but don’t want to own a down jacket.
I can make things rot. So I rotted my neighbor’s garden a week before harvest.
I make autumn immediately follow winter so now the world’s harvesting systems are fucked because I get pollen allergies.
Avarikinesis - Control Greed
I’m trying to make the world fair by taking all the greed out of high-ranking officials but sometimes that was their only driving force and they have no actual job experience.
I made someone comically greedy because being a superhero in a town in which no banks need protecting is boring.
I want so desperately to not have to take greed out of anymore people. It’s getting so tiring. I need to go on a vacation.
Avikinesis - Control Avains
Having hawks fly to my aide when my boss was giving me shit in the parking lot was definitely a sweet move.
I may live in this cottage alone, but these birds are more than enough company. One of them just told me about someone who ate shit on pavement last week in a city ten miles away. It’s awesome.
“Bats fly, right? Why can’t I control bats?” “Please just let me do my work.” ‘What about bugs?” “Please go home.” “Do flying fish count?”
I’ve had so ppl ask me to draw Eren as if he was the amputee-kun so I took pics of a few sketches and edited a bit these two to make them look less lazy :’v (lol the point of this was that I did’t feel like drawing on pc bc it’s been taking me v long to do anything but I still ended here;; )
