Finished a report due tomorrow this afternoon. Did a tarot reading again and it was quite enlightening. Then studied math all evening!!! Also watched the new episodes of HTGAWM and Riverdale and damnnnn! who else watches these shows?
Hey fran, i remember you saying todo is the one you shipped most in bnha and that made me think 1. What's your favorite/ most shipped todo ship and 2. What's your opinion on inatodo :0 have a swell day!
Ohhhhhh I do love the idea of Inasa and Todo, actually! Tho Todo doesn’t seem particularly interested, does he haha Ina->Todo is definitely sweet tho, and I’ve liked all the arts of the two of them I’ve seen, so why not! I do hope Todo will decide he does want to be Inasa’s friend in the end haha - as far as my fav Todo ship goes, it might be with Deku? Definitely the easiest one to see, so since I don’t have any strong feelings about his ships I end up there easily (also while it ends up looking completely different given the single characters personalities, story-wise there are a lot of paralels between tddk and krbk, so it’s really easy for me to see the possibilities in tddk haha) I like him lots with Iida and with Momo too, though, so I guess those are my top three :D
bad trans headcanon tropes to leave behind for 2018
trans man binds with ace bandages until a Good Cis Ally gets him a binder
“this is my buff trans wife and i want her to murder me” and other various phrases that make the association that trans woman = violent
trans man is in a state of undress when another character walks in on him shirtless, which outs him as trans against his will
character who is a man (or uses he/him pronouns) in canon gets headcanoned as a trans woman and then in the trans headcanon fanart she’s drawn even buffer and hairier than in canon just to prove how Obviously Not Cis she is
drawing cis characters like regular people but then stylizing your trans headcanons to emphasize the characteristics of their ASAB
exclusively headcanoning thin adolescent white boys as trans men
headcanoning Real, Actual People as trans
referring to adult characters as “boys” if you headcanon them as trans; infantilizing trans men in general
not bothering to draw body hair on your cis characters, but always including body hair on your trans women headcanons.
having cis love interests say anything along the lines of “i love you no matter what parts you have :)” like they deserve a fuckin medal
only writing/drawing trans characters in nsfw situations / fetishization in general
The above are the first half of the slides I presented at GeekGirlCon (along with some annotations to explain things I only said out loud :) ) – for the second half, read more below the cut. I’ll also be sharing the slides from the other presenters here, too, as they’re posted!
The gender representation work is part of a longer analysis that I will be posting in full soon!
Beneath the cut are also a few additional slides that I would have presented with a bit more time – several of which address things that came up in the question session. Edit: warning for some mature text content in the extra slides.
Edit 2: Also, if you want more notes about when and how I collected this data (e.g., some of the data in the first section is a couple years old), you want clearer text/images, or you want to get at the raw data, check out the links in the speakers notes in my Google Slides!
…And the extra slides (content warning for mature themes in text):
