also: happy women’s history month to every trans woman
you’re constantly erased from history and pushed out of women’s spaces but you belong there and you have always been important parts of history.
let’s not forget trans women this year.
Psst, hey, Marilyn Monroe’s image as a freewheeling sexpot was a carefully constructed lie. The real Marilyn Monroe was a roiling tragedy and her life was an indictment of our society as a whole. She was orphaned after her mother had a schizophrenic breakdown, bounced around between foster homes where she was sexually abused, and married a 21-year-old at 16 to get out of being sent to an orphanage. Hugh Hefner published nude photos of her without her consent that were taken when she was 23 and desperate. She suffered severe anxiety and depression, which she coped with by drinking and using barbiturates, and was already a full-blown addict when she became famous in the mid-50s. Her career was one of exploitation, condescension and alienation, and she killed herself at 36. That Hugh Hefner, a man who was at best an unpleasant footnote in her life, felt entitled to be buried next to her is one more humiliation in a pop cultural landscape we should all be ashamed of.
“Mike Pence is so anti-gay, you just know he’s closeted.”
Or you know, maybe he’s just a violent bigot that hates LGBT people. Maybe we should stop shifting the blame for the violence LGBT people face onto LGBT people and accept that he’s a hateful fucking person. Every homophobe is not hiding in the closet. More than likely Pence would just rather see gay people tortured as a “cure,” and rid from this Earth. Maybe y’all can stop with this pathetic cop out and actually push back against people like this in our society?
tbh I’ve been thinking about it and I think the lack of irl gay spaces especially ones just for women means that we never really interactions between gay women taking place…as a result they gain a kind of mythical status where we have thousands of girls on here wishing for girlfriends but with no clue about how to actually get one…girls who match on dating sites and never talk or girls who clearly like each other but never do anything about it…heterosexual relationships are so prevalent in our society that it’s so easy to observe and model romantic behaviours: if not from your parents than from your friends or from reading tips in magazines or books or movies or tv shows and even music. But because good wlw representation is essentially zero, all we really have to go off of is the support and example of older women, and the lack of women only LGBT spaces (like bookstores or music festivals or dances) means that we all just have to guess on everything and I think that’s a huge factor in why lesbians in particular feel so alone
So with the emergence of the anime becoming more and more
popular, of course the fan base is growing and growing, I would even say to
heights like seen in Fairy Tail, Naruto, etc.
However, with the series getting more popular, you are stuck
with more….negative opinions about the characters that in my mind are sometimes
just not necessary.
Now, this blog is normally Ochako and Kacchako and I intend
to mostly keep it that way but lately, I’ve been seeing a lot of negative posts
towards Momo and frankly, I’m heavily displeased by this, especially since
she’s one of the most well portrayed girls in the series and it’s really
heartbreaking on my end to see posts that essentially dismiss her for more
shallow reasons that don’t need to be here.
I mean to start this off, are we going to simply forget that
she came into UA on a recommendation and was a student that made even All Might
shook when asked why Iida was the winner of the exercise
or how, even though the class didn’t know her, she was still
voted to be Assistant Class President?
or how she was able to act calm and rational during the USJ
or how she still managed to get the top grade in the midterm
exams and didn’t get it to her head but actually acted BENEVOTELY and helped
her classmates who asked her for help?
or how it was HER plan that got Todoroki and her to win the exam that they were
But ya know, because of her BODY, we’re going to ignore that
right? We’re going to ignore how amazing and how smart she is simply because of
I won’t lie guys, I’ve heard people complaining about her
quirk and even saying how bad her quirk is designed when it’s like??? It
actually makes a lot of sense why it’s like that since she does create large
objects like shields, spears, A FREAKING CANON, like it makes sense for her to
need to use fat call throughout her body to be able to achieve that look.
Which brings me to talk about her costume. Oh boy, this is
the one that when I first entered the fandom, no one really said anything but
now that the series is more popular, everyone has become experts on body proportions
and quirk designs and apparently fashion design since her costume isn’t good
enough for her.
I mean look at the costume design that Horikoshi put in for
her and how he planned that all out for her
At some point, yes I understand, Horikoshi is a pervert,
sometimes his intentions aren’t the best, I get that. But consider this, even
though he had the ability to make Ochako’s and Tsuyu’s costumes completely
perverted, he chose against that. He had the perfect opportunity to indulge in
that yet he didn’t. What I love about Horikoshi is that he thinks about the practicality
of the quirks and designs the costumes based on that as well taking into
consideration the character’s personality and what they would want.
So guys, at some point, reality check moment: Momo is
comfortable with her body enough to wear a costume that she deemed necessary
for the usage of her quirk. And she chose that design for that outfit and has
not said a word about this entire series. She even had an opportunity to create
it to be more closed and she chose not to. MOMO CHOSE HER OUTFIT AND VIEWS IT
GOOD ENOUGH FOR HER HERO WORK.
In this moment too, I would like to share what even Midnight
said during Episode 34 at the very beginning.
So another reality check: The only people who are saying it’s
sexual are the people who are sexualizing her to begin with. Instead of viewing
it as more of a practical thing that is designed for her quirk (which involves utilizing
her fat cells and creating stuff through her skin), people begin to view as
sexual and are condemning her for having a revealing costume. Which, to me personally,
I find ironic since tumblr is filled with campaigns of free the nipple and the
stopping of sexualization of breasts and female anatomy, yet look what’s
happening here. People are taking her costume and saying she’s being sexualized
for choosing a design that would give her optimal openness to use her quirk.
I mean look at how she used it in the Aizawa fight
Having that navel cavity helped her out immensely during
this fight and she was able to create the alloy material in a much faster way
with having access to areas where most of her fat is stored.
Which, I also heard people commenting on how Momo’s body
doesn’t make sense and how skinny she is in comparison to her boobs (which I’ve
seen that in real life, it’s not uncommon), but if you see in this spread
She actually isn’t the skinniest person in the world. Keep
in mind that while she does use her fat cells to make stuff, she does also
consume A LOT OF FOOD TOO to keep up with the level of activity too so she does
get chubby sometimes so it’s a wrong assumption to think she has this INCRDIBLY
PERFECT BODY WITH NO FAT when she does! Which only makes it only more natural
Honestly, her entire arc in the beginning of the manga (or
at least up into this exam point) has been so powerful, so realistic, and so
amazingly well done.
I mean to consider,
very similarly to Bakugou, while we haven’t gotten much of her backstory, given
how she behaved in Season 1, we can have a somewhat assumption that she came
from a great home and was well praised for her quirk. Obviously, her quirk isn’t
one with a talent, she had to work immensely for it, but she must have been
placed into situations where she was elevated and praised for how powerful her
quirk is (like she was put in situations where she was able to be able to use
her quirk to the fullest and not have much backfired).
Even Aizawa says this during their fight
Which does imply this isn’t a constant state she’s always been in, it’s one that has been gained since the sports festival (hence why the arguments that she should be shouldn’t be self confident are wrong).
Yet, with coming to UA and being in a hero course, after
participating in the festival, well she starts to crumble and kind of doubt her
abilities against the others
Like it starts off with her not getting a high ranking on
Then she mentioned the issue with the cavalry battle later
on but definitely the heavy hitter for Momo was her fight with Tokoyami where
she was left in shambles since she wasn’t able to make much on an impact on the
fight itself (which this was amplified more in the anime than the manga itself).
Thus really bringing down her confidence. And now a lot of
people screamed about how misogynist her hero training was and how demeaning it
was which leads to 2 issues that some people forget about.
That there are multiple sides to being a hero.
It’s not always the cookie cutter “fight villains, rescue people, rinse and
repeat”. Even famous people in our society, even though their job is to
act/sing/etc, they still go out and do publicity work and that’s what they do.
It’s a part of being well known and using your abilities outside of the field
you are in.
This was all part of Momo developing. This was
just another way to bring Momo down a couple more notches. It’s a bit cruel and
hard but this was a way for Horikoshi to get her out of her mindset and be exposed to
something where her confidence could be lowered. Guaranteed if she was put into
an actual hero training internship, she wouldn’t have been lowered as much as
Which could lead the argument that
it wasn’t necessary to have any of that stuff happen to her but consider, would
she have gotten in this state if she didn’t have those things happen and accumulate?
And would she have gotten her
confidence back from Todoroki/Aizawa and execute an amazing plan without that
encouragement from those moments?
Ok this post is beginning to get
way to long so I’m going to stop here before I go on and on and on about Momo.
As much as Ochako is my best girl and I will forever sacrifice myself to her,
even I have to admit Momo is utterly amazing and I only talked about what
happened in the first 65 chapters. I didn’t even brush on how amazing she was
during the invasion of the villains or how she managed to be a huge help in the
rescue of Bakugou or even how kickass she was during the license exam (which
she helped my princess Ochako and that pleased me so much). Momo is just more
than the simple sexual object people are complaining her to be as, she’s an
incredibly smart and amazing woman and Horikoshi put so much thought into her, more
than what any of us could ever imagine. I am truly excited to see more of what
she can do in the future and I hope she gains more fans since she truly
I don’t know how to explain to goyim that calling out anti-Semitism is not about hurt feelings or crocodile tears and everything to do with the fear of history repeating itself in the form of angry mobs hellbent on attacking Jewish people.
I don’t know how to explain that I am not calling Jay-Z out because I want to silence Black artists; I’m calling him out because I’m genuinely afraid that his false accusation about Jews owning all the property in America will result in people across the nation blaming Jews for the evils of the world and then inciting pogroms (violent mob attacks) against Jewish people.
I don’t know how to explain that I’m not calling out CDM because I don’t care about the liberation of Palestinians; I’m calling them out because I’m worried that if we allow non-Jews to police our beliefs and define for us what our ancient symbols mean, that it could ultimately lead to any displays of public Jewishness being deemed questionable or offensive, which could eventually end in violence against any Jews who are openly Jewish at public events.
I don’t know how to explain to goyim that nearly every Jewish person in the world either grew up with a relative who had to flee their home in the middle of the night because of this type of violence, or they actually experienced this trauma themselves. I don’t know how to tell them that this is an ingrained trauma in almost every existing Jewish family, and that it has been repeated every few generations across the globe since we entered the Diaspora nearly 2,000 years ago.
I don’t know how to explain that when people say almost the exact types of things that were shouted at my relatives by white Russian nationalists as they burned their villages to the ground that it doesn’t matter if you say you’re a progressive or an anti-racist, or you’re also marginalized in some way, because all I hear are the same words people have said to Jews for centuries before physically assaulting them, and I’m worried you’re going to eventually going to assault me, too.
I don’t know how to explain that if goyim read our history they might understand that we Jews have been used as scapegoats for the world’s evils everywhere on the planet from Lithuania to Ethiopia, and that regardless of our standing in society or our level of assimilation, that it’s always ended with our expulsion or murder or both.
I don’t know how to explain that I’m not trying to be petty or “take up space in the movement,” or draw attention away from other causes, but that I’m only asking for you to examine your words and actions now, while I still hope there’s time to pull out the seeds of anti-Semitism that have been planted, because I am literally afraid that if I don’t, you or somebody like you will ultimately be at my doorstep shouting “It’s their fault! Get them! Kill the Jews!”
I don’t know how to explain that I’m afraid you might believe the vitriol behind your words one day enough to kill me.
heres a radical idea, teenagers still deserve a fucking livable wage when they’re doing the same goddamn job an adult is. this idea that “teenagers first jobs” should be paid down and less meaningful is
1) completely fucking fabricated and
2) completely fucking ignores the fact that many teenagers NEED INCOME TO SURVIVE they’re living on their own, they’re going to college, they’re helping support their families
AND REGARDLESS OF ALL OF THAT… They’re still doing the same fucking work as an adult, they’re still putting their time and effort into a service our society requires at the moment to function you worthless fucking assholes disagreeing with me on this.
they deserve livable wages shut the fuck up and get the fuck away from me with this bullshit.

It says something to me about how empowered these Nazis/racists feel that they don’t even feel the need to cover their faces during their marches anymore. They don’t care if they are identified. The state of our society allows them to just openly march out in public with no repercussions.
“Ultimately, Sense8 is a show about us. A show that connected us to the lives of a diverse group of people and through them told us a story about the best of humanity; a story about love, empathy, friendship, compassion, joy and sincerity. A show that despite having great action scenes and suspenseful moments, shines brightest in the interactions between its characters. In the profound heart-to-hearts, and in the beautifully meaningless and silly moments that are shared between them. It is these interactions that the show reveals how our emotions and their expressions the part of ourselves and our society that we tend to dismiss as irrational and inferior, end up being the most important.”
I saw a post about 100 ways to say ‘I love you’, so I thought I’d make the anti-version if it doesn’t exist already. Roleplayers, send these to each other for angst reasons! Tw for emotional abuse, language, and some major rejection themes, though some them are joking and could be used for friendly rivals or pals who play-insult one another. Change or add pronouns as necessary.
