ok i saw something on tumblr with a lot of notes a few months ago and it’s still bugging me i need to get this out

it was a post that was basically like “stop teaching artists the difference between a man and a woman’s body!!! guys can look feminine and women can look masculine so just stop!!!” and everyone seemed to agree. and like ok but if you’ve actually??? studied?? art?? at all??? thats pretty damn important unless all you plan on doing is cartooning or something like rebecca sugar. you have to learn the basics before you start making adaptions. generally speaking, males have features that females don’t, and the other way around. I’m not just talking about obvious things, I’m talking about the little hints you have to learn when you’re learning how to draw. ie protruding eyebrows, thicker neck, wider ribcage etc. like, yes women can have these features but generally speaking, they don’t. there’s a stark difference between how masculine people look vs feminine and that’s SO important to learn, especially if you’re going to be working in character design. like i said, you CAN change those things later down the road, but you need to know how to do it correctly for it to work well. and i mean… u wanna draw someone nonbinary for example. like.. u gotta know how to draw both a male and a female so that you can pull from both ends to make them appear androgenous. if you never learned the difference between masculine anatomy and feminine anatomy, it won’t look right! i get that gender is a touchy subject and that in an ideal world we wouldn’t have to pay attention to the differences but like.. at the very least, if you’re going to make a career out of art, you have to learn the basics. gggg. that post had so many notes and it makes me sad to think of young artist who will grow up with that mindset and be confused as to why they’re not improving.

edit: apologies that I wasn’t clear, I know not all nb ppl want/have the same bodytype. like. im nb. i should have used the word androgenous tho :V no one rlly follows this blog, it’s a personal sideblog I use more as a journal than anything else!

So the past few days I have had a couple of men criticize my body  and my choices on what to do with it. I was told never to post any sort of “risky” photo, that I’m vain and full of myself, that I should get implants, that I’m asking for it, and my favorite one..that being a lady means covering yourself and acting modest. Yeah so here’s another photo and all you haters can kiss my ass. I am tired of living in such a judgmental and sexist world, and these are just little examples of how men act when women try to break out of the norm. I’ve seen men punch other men over a woman skinny dipping, I’ve seen men touch women without consent over lack of clothing, or too tight clothing. And much much more.This seriously needs to stop and my posting pictures like this one IS NOT THE FUCKING PROBLEM. #rant
PS…To all those wonderful people who support women and their freedom…keep doing what you’re doing you guys rock.

Amen. See also https://naturalswimmingspirit.tumblr.com/post/162350091736/proudlittlebuns-melbarry-loves-running

Consider this: it’s season 7. Officer Rogers owns a dreamcatcher. Or magically appears (like MM with henry’s book).
Touches it.
BUM. A memory of his old (pre DO¡hook) life.
*insert here fluffy CS scenes. Preferably the ones we haven’t seen on the show.*
Since then, Officer Rogers can’t stop thinking about it and needs to find that woman.

(*whispers* a+ if he can’t stop “rewatching” the dreamcatcher.)

Yall, just because youre Jewish does not mean youre a person of color

Stop conflating race and ethnicity. There are black, asian, etc Jewish people and they know what race they are because they face added oppression for being of those racial backgrounds. Its not hard to understand that white Jews are being oppressed for their ETHNICITY and not their RACE. Yall sound just like white latinx who swear theyre not white because they get discriminated against over their ETHNICITY. Yall need to fix your keyboard fingers and google the difference and stop using your ETHNICITY to put your two cents in conversations about race. Yall have unique experiences and histories that should be discussed WITHIN THEIR OWN RIGHT. Not by stepping over black people and other people of color and using your ETHNICITY to tell black people what they should and shouldnt be offended by. Gal Gadot for example is a white woman and she will always be a white woman, stop using her ETHNICITY to silence black women in their plight for representation with your antiblackness. Educate yourselves and go about your business.

when guys are like “girls over [relatively low weight] shouldn’t wear [revealing article of clothing]” a lot of the time they are trying to get women above that weight to say “OH REALLY?” and post a picture of themselves looking good in that article of clothing. It’s a creepy power play designed to prey on both women’s confidence and their insecurities and trick them into posting revealing pictures of themselves for the sexual gratification of men who they otherwise wouldn’t have given the time of day. It’s a sleazy pick-up artist tactic. It’s negging. When you see an all-too-common post that’s like “bigger girls shouldn’t wear bikinis” and the response is him getting “owned” because a woman replied with pictures of herself looking beautiful, he’s not getting owned at all, he’s getting exactly the result he was hoping for. They’re basically saying “You sure showed me by sending me, a huge sexist creep, a picture of yourself in a bikini! PLEASE don’t send me nudes, I don’t know if I could take the humiliation!”

yo being black and depressed is hard as fuck. being black with anxiety is hard as fuck. being black with a chronic illness or disability is hard a fuck. everybody expects you to be ‘strong’ at all times and no one sees black people as complex or nuanced enough to be capable of suffering. no one ever thinks we could possibly need help. and if you’re a black woman, the moment you stop thinking about others and try to tend to yourself you’re a selfish lazy ungrateful bitch.

support black people, esp women, who need help. don’t just call us strong or tell us we’ll get through it, help us. protect us. uplift us. allow us to be beings capable of suffering. give us the same space you’d give white women to express our pain and be there for us like you would for anyone else. 

How to talk to your daughter about her body, step one: Don’t talk to your daughter about her body, except to teach her how it works.

Don’t say anything if she’s lost weight. Don’t say anything if she’s gained weight.

If you think your daughter’s body looks amazing, don’t say that. Here are some things you can say instead:

“You look so healthy!” is a great one.

Or how about, “You’re looking so strong.”

“I can see how happy you are – you’re glowing.”

Better yet, compliment her on something that has nothing to do with her body.

Don’t comment on other women’s bodies either. Nope. Not a single comment, not a nice one or a mean one.

Teach her about kindness towards others, but also kindness towards yourself.

Don’t you dare talk about how much you hate your body in front of your daughter, or talk about your new diet. In fact, don’t go on a diet in front of your daughter. Buy healthy food. Cook healthy meals. But don’t say, “I’m not eating carbs right now.” Your daughter should never think that carbs are evil, because shame over what you eat only leads to shame about yourself.

Encourage your daughter to run because it makes her feel less stressed. Encourage your daughter to climb mountains because there is nowhere better to explore your spirituality than the peak of the universe. Encourage your daughter to surf, or rock climb, or mountain bike because it scares her and that’s a good thing sometimes.

Help your daughter love soccer or rowing or hockey because sports make her a better leader and a more confident woman. Explain that no matter how old you get, you’ll never stop needing good teamwork. Never make her play a sport she isn’t absolutely in love with.

Prove to your daughter that women don’t need men to move their furniture.

Teach your daughter how to cook kale.

Teach your daughter how to bake chocolate cake made with six sticks of butter.

Pass on your own mom’s recipe for Christmas morning coffee cake. Pass on your love of being outside.

Maybe you and your daughter both have thick thighs or wide ribcages. It’s easy to hate these non-size zero body parts. Don’t. Tell your daughter that with her legs she can run a marathon if she wants to, and her ribcage is nothing but a carrying case for strong lungs. She can scream and she can sing and she can lift up the world, if she wants.

Remind your daughter that the best thing she can do with her body is to use it to mobilize her beautiful soul.

i was talking to some friends about wonder woman today and one of them said how she didn’t like steve, bc wonder woman didn’t need a man, it was supposed to be an empowering film about women and not men 

and here’s the thing, we live in a patriarchal society, yet we’re told by women and feminists everywhere that a woman doesn’t need a man, and that’s is entirely true. women don’t need men! but loving a man doesn’t make a woman weak! it doesn’t make wonder woman any less empowering for loving steve! the problem is that female characters are so often lost in the ‘love interest’ trope that they aren’t empowering characters, and are hardly characters at all outside the relationship. but wonder woman, and many more films and tv shows today, aren’t like that anymore! so let’s stop aligning powerful women as not having a man, and non-powerful women as having a man!

a woman loving a man doesn’t make her any less powerful and independant, and we need to stop portraying and seeing it in that light

Batman vs Superman was over two hours of two men bickering over who has the biggest brooding cock-I mean, who has the better method of "saving" people and whether or not it's ok for Batman to beat and brand criminals without regarding the fact that not everyone's as wealthy and privileged as his morally upright ass and for Superman to ignore the fact that not everyone's as indestructible as him, meanwhile Wonder Woman over here...

Ok.

Wonder Woman was vastly superior to bvs for two reasons.

-Wonder Woman is actually a likable lady and an idealistic believable super hero who doesn’t spend her entire moving thinking about how she COULD help people.

She charges in, headfirst, wanting to help people she doesn’t even KNOW because she wants to protect the people who’re dying.

-and Wonder Woman was just so much more subtle and less pretentious about its message.

Seriously.

Let’s talk.

Wonder Woman’s CHARACTER is not that she’s cold and heartless and…well, masculine.

She doesn’t EMULATE men.

She doesn’t need to act like a man to be strong.

She coos at a baby and kisses Chris Pine and doesn’t spend the entire movie ragging on women.

She dresses and acts feminine, and embodies kindness, grace, beauty, everything “feminine.”

And she’s also strong as fucking hell.

That is Wonder Woman.

She’s a good person.

She’s not some cold warrior goddess, an untouchable female shaped ideal.

She’s GENUINELY KIND.

She sees people suffering in the trenches and her first thought it, stop what we’re doing, we gotta help.

Chris pine and all of his men?

They’ve seen all of this.

They’ve hardened themselves to the horrors of war and accepted them as inevitable.

But Diana, new to the cruelty of the human world, is disgusted and she asks what’s wrong with you?

What is wrong with us?

We have accepted casualties. We have accepted pain.

We have excused suffering because we told ourselves long ago that we couldn’t do anything about it.

But Diana?

She does not accept that.

She fights, yes. She’s ferocious and she, unlike Batman, doesn’t have a compulsion against killing.

She was raised by warrior women, I mean come on.

But who does she fight for?

The women and children who did nothing wrong.

The injured, hopeless men fighting a war to end all wars.

The entire movie was lovely because all of Diana’s bewilderment at the way humans live was incredible.

She’s shocked at how dirty London is.

She’s not impressed by sex and she’s not impressed by war.

She thinks sexism is strange.

But she doesn’t like, rag on it, because Diana is literally so above it that she just wryly questions it at times.

Like I don’t care what all the whiny fanboys say.

There’s not an overt feminist message in this movie.

There’s no “men are so weak.”

There’s “men are corruptible” but as we see, Diana sees them as worth saving in the end, if only to fulfill her own ideals…

Which is feminist as fuck, I guess, because Diana doesn’t defend men because it’s her job.

She defends them because it’s her decision. Her morality. Her duty.

But the feminism in the movie comes from the fact that she’s so kind.

She breaks down when realizing that Ares isn’t behind it all, that MEN are the ones who are cruel to one another.

She sees the war and it’s only senseless violence to her.

All of the people she wants to help are the victims, and it’s clear cut, to her, who’s bad and who’s not.

But Chris Pine helps her realize that humans aren’t so clear cut.

And so even though she was disgusted by human actions, she still wanted to help the people in need.

I absolutely adore the scene where she’s charging across a battle field to pave the way to the town.

First off, it was so badass watching her knock aside artillery like it was nothing as the men cowered in the pits.

Second, SHE SAW THAT PEOPLE WERE SUFFERING AND SHE DIDNT CALCULATE.

She didn’t do a Batman, where she looked at the risks vs the benefits vs the needs of the many and the few.

She just charged in and did what she could.

Chris Pine told her she couldn’t do anything except help him with his plan, in order to stop the war and save them indirectly.

But Diana is a true warrior with the heart of a lion, man.

She helped them directly, with no nonsense, no politicizing, no planning, just action.

At the end she says love will save humanity?

That’s the kind of feminism Wonder Woman was embodying.

Wonder Woman wasn’t this lone independent operator who sneers at men who try to involve themselves in her business.

She was helped and supported by men, but it was clear that she was the star, the true hero who brought them and their plans together but also gave them a new hope, a new heart.

They were jaded by helplessness and mortal frustration, forced to fight to stand stills and accept human deaths.

She came and showed them something miraculous and wonderful: her power.

But not used to beat someone’s head in with a fucking sink.

Used to do good.

To fight for her morals, which aren’t corrupted by the human world’s greyness, not yet.

I loved this movie.

I loved this movie so much.

DC finally did good and we can stop pretending suicide squad and Batman vs superman were good.

Wonder Woman is the good DC movie.

Don’t even try to tell me BVS was better than Wonder Woman because if you genuinely believe that, either out of pride and obstinacy from all your bickering with marvel fans or out of delusional worshipping of anything DC, then I think you just like watching people beat people in slow motion and uncomfortably lofty , corporate-cut and stylized plots as interesting as watching a landscape time lapse.

Suicide squad was cut to bits by its editors, BVS suffered from some severe Snyder wanking, and justice league, I don’t know, we’ll see.

But Wonder Woman?

Best DC movie since dark knight.

God bless Patty.

I knew we needed a woman in charge to get the job done.

Now direct all sexist comments and sneering remarks about feminazis destroying your precious super hero genre with their “love” themes to my inbox where they’ll be lovingly deleted.

Hey can cis women stop doing this to trans women’s posts, its incredibly disrespectful and unless you’re going to end it with “I agree” / ”I support this” (spoiler alert none of them said this) leave us the fuck alone with your cis nonsense, we don’t fucking need it.

Also if you leave “as a female” like the first one i will literally come to your house and kill you.

I think the thing that really, really got me about the no man’s land scene in Wonder Woman?

Is that it didn’t gloss over the “WW1 was awful, just, so so terrible” thing. And, like the million grimdark movies we’ve already seen, it’s all grey and grimy and awful and human suffering everywhere you look, and like every grimdark movie we’ve ever seen people are saying “look we can’t change this this is just how it is there’s nothing we can do everything sucks that’s just how it is”

And then, because Diana is Diana, she stops, and says “NO. No, I can do something, or at least I must try. And none of you can stop me.”

And she goes up and over the bank and into no-man’s land, in the iconic costume for the first time, red and blue and gold against the grey, and flips that goddamn overused ‘grimdark world sucks everything is futile life is pain there is no hope’ trope right on it’s goddamn head.

I didn’t know how desperately I needed to see that somewhere, and seeing my absolutely beloved childhood icon do it…well, I’m still a little choked up about it, the next day.

Are you fucking kidding me?

I just saw a post telling people that they should be pissed about Koogi’s break

I.am.livid

“We have every right to be pissed”

“She took on this job - do it right”

“Stop treating koogi like she’s special and needs special treatment”

Are you for real?

Like…

This young, young woman creates content for you to drool and gush over weekly and you have the nerve to complain when she needs a rest?

We should be so fucking grateful that we even have Killing Stalking to begin with. 

Not to mention, In japan at least, making manga is an extremely taxing job. They don’t get a break. They literally work all damn day. Aren’t we just fucking lucky that Koogi, in Korea(not speaking for every manhwa artist), has the chance to even have breaks? Not only that, but I’m sure she doesn’t make that much money. So…pumping out this wonderful story, with amazing art, weekly, with little pay, doesn’t deserve a break?

Stop being so damn entitled.

And “treating her like she’s special” - you mean treating her like a human being?

Yeah, the fandom often babies her and worships her feet, but why is that a bad thing? This woman, whom we’re so grateful and appreciative of…who makes this story that we all love and adore…is there something wrong with admiring that?

For fuck sakes, I admire her for being able to even get the manhwa out weekly..

You do have every right to be upset about the hiatus, but pissed? Fuck right off.

Everyone deserves a break. Not to mention, if we never give Koogi a break, how mentally and physically taxing would that be? Working all the time with no break, but you’d have no problem with that, right? Because she’s supposed to be a “professional”, that’s what she signed up for, right?

“I stuck up for her hiatus the first time..but this time..no” Well aren’t you just special. Because she needed a break once, it was all g, no problemo, but a second break???TWO???? No WAY! !!! ! 

It’s.only.one.damn.month

You can’t expect everything to be handed to you on a silver plate without the server needing to rest every now and again.

I’ll say it one more time, stop acting so fucking entitled.

anonymous asked:

Here is something I think a lot of people aren't mentioning in Wonder Woman. Sure, Chief being in the middle of Europe was awesome and the lack of a big explanation is a plus to the film. But how about that they didn't bother to explain the diversity of the Amazons either. Sure maybe it just common sense that Greek islands aren't far from Africa and other places but that didn't stop movies being almost exclusively white for decades.

This movie is a such a blessing tbh I mean it has:

  • Chief, a Native American, in the middle of Europe, no explanation needed and he was actually played by a Native American actor who was allowed to choose his own clothing for an accurate representation (x)
  • Sameer saying he wanted to be an actor but he’s the wrong colour
  • Accurate portrayal of PTSD
  • Chief talking about how white people took everything from his people
  • A diverse group of women portraying the badass Amazon warriors
  • Amazonians of all ages because yeah women after 50 exist even if Hollywood refuses to believe it  
  • Etta mentioning that women were fighting for their right to vote
  • Body-positivity (thigh-jiggle cause female bodies do that sometimes and it’s ok)
  • Not a single moment of Diana or any woman for that matter being hyper-sexualised (thank you Patty Jenkins)

Okay but can we all agree that the character contrast in Wonder Woman between Steve and Diana was one of the best, most thought-out things we’ve seen on screen in some time? 

I mean, think about it. Steve is a spy. He is used to doing things covertly and subtly. He likes to find the secret passages, physically and figuratively. Diana, on the other hand, is a warrior. She does things with force, whether it be gaining information or taking out the enemy. She barges right in, rather than looking for a secret entrance. Where Steve would rather place a bomb, Diana would rather prefer by hand.

At the same time, Diana is still so fresh in this new concept of war. She is the best warrior, but she has yet to see battle. Steve has externally hardened himself against the roughness and heartache of war. Diana focuses on the details (the people enslaved in the village) and Steve looks at the big picture (Axis powers are planning on killing more than just a village with the gas). These differences alone are what makes their team work; Steve keeps Diana focused on the mission, while Diana makes sure Steve remembers why the mission exists in the first place. 

They are divided by method, but connected by their goal and their hope of stopping more death.

Their relationship, both working and personal, was so beautiful and well thought-out that I got chills watching them work together. Their differences didn’t create friction, but gilded together like a machine. They did have hiccups along the way, but they learned from them and adjusted accordingly. This is how characters were meant to be written.

Homie out.
