anonymous asked:

Are you honestly critiquing Incredibles by saying it promotes objectivism and fascism? Dont ruin one of my favorite movies!!!

I guess I was half-playfully-commentating and half-totally-serious. I don’t think it flat-out promotes objectivism or fascism so to speak, but I do think that its subtext promotes themes that are used by rightists. Like, Syndrome’s line “when everyone’s super, no one will be” totally does harken back to the spirit of Ayn Rand’s novels or your conservative uncle over the Thanksgiving table who’s complaining about how “everyone in this generation gets a gold star” – it’s the rightist proclamation that humanity’s differences ought to confer particular class/power-over relationships (obviously the gold star comment is a minor example comparatively, but this same conservative uncle is usually also in favor of reactionary class relations anyway). As far as I can tell, the movie’s theme isn’t just the oft-used (but still very much welcome) kids movie message that differences are okay, because it goes way beyond just differences – super powers grant you the ability to mold society’s destiny, analogous to ownership over society’s productive and resource capacities. That ought to be something molded by everyone, but the movie essentially argues that super heroes ought to remain exclusive and unaccountable. I hope you can see where I’m coming from in that sense.

Take classic films and media for what they’re worth. Lion King is one of my favorite movies and the Fire Emblem series is among my favorite video games, but at the end of the day they both legitimize monarchy as an acceptable form of socio-political relations (as long as the autocrat in charge is “good” and “the proper heir”). I’m not saying don’t enjoy the media that you enjoy (for the most part); I’m just saying that it’s important to analyze what you’re consuming. Obviously people aren’t parading in the streets demanding that we reinstate hereditary monarchy as a result of watching Lion King or playing Fire Emblem, so I’m overall not too worried about those at least. I’m no parent, but I do think it wouldn’t be a bad idea to have conversations with your kid about the themes of these media pieces.

“WALKING HAND GRENADE” theme #005 by @ollyofrp

many people have asked for my old rpg’s theme, so here it is!! there are a lot of features and it’s very easily accessible and customizable. if you want to alter this for a fansite or rph theme, that’s very possible. it will just take some heavy html editing. this was originally inspired by a forum skin i stumbled across on my old computer. if you know which one it was, let me know and i’ll add credit to this post for the inspiration. i hope you enjoy!!

p.s. big thank you to @electricgirlofrp​ for the fake rpg inspo!!
