talking roses

anonymous asked:

I was talking about Ruby Rose with my sister and my mom asked what "genderfluid" meant and after dispelling a few of her basic misconceptions she said she would ask us more about it tomorrow (she had to go to work). My dad doesn't really understand the "gender=/=sex" thing but I think my mom will get it!!!

Good! Very good!

One thing I really love about Steven Universe is how they emphasize that COMMUNICATION is important.

You have Garnet (who is essentially the embodiment of a relationship between Ruby and Sapphire) singing about being a conversation

You have Greg and Rose sorting out their confusion about their relationship through talking

And you have Steven encouraging Pearl and Greg to talk about their complicated history with Rose and with each other

Communication can solve a lot of conflicts, and is important in keeping a relationship going, whether it be platonic or romantic. I’m glad SU inculcates that in its audience :)

(on the fun side, you also learn that Greg likes to sort things out through talking then dancing)

su is the worst kind of show because its just full of faux progression

its full of strong female characters! except no, not really, the gems arent actually women

its full of POC! except no, not really, the gems dont actually have races

its full of positive gay representation! except no, not really, theres only one canon, healthy gay ship, and theyre rarely on screen. the only other actually-gay character is an abusive obsessive wreck who puts children in danger and cant get over her unrequited DEAD crush.  everything else is just ship bait with no confirmation

why were we all praising this show again?

So I really wanted to have a comic finished today, but I have one in the making that I’m really liking and didn’t wanna rush it, or separate it into parts. So have this Stardust Ruby Rose thing till I get back from vacation, and can upload a cute team STRQ comic!

Sidenote: Anyone think “Dust” in RWBY could be Star Dust? Idk what that would mean, but it sounds cute~!
