what to get men

you know what’s really genuinely unsettling? the degree to which men fucking do not want to sympathize with/be interested in women.

male audiences will happily watch a dozen superhero shows, but then something like Agent Carter or Supergirl turn up and they’re panned from the first trailer and have to struggle for ratings. male audiences will watch countless installments of a franchise as long as it’s about men doing man things but the second a character like Rey or Furiosa or god forbid four entire female Ghostbusters steps up and takes a position of prominence it’s “pandering sjw bullshit”.

it’s not pandering. men just aggressively don’t want to have to be invested in a woman’s narrative and it’s really gross.

Listen I love the X-Men movies and all but just a thought: maybe you wouldn’t have such a hard time trying to shove everyone’s character development and backstories into one ensemble film (and subsequently cutting important characters out of the majority of said film) if you gave someone other than fucking Wolverine a solo movie.

full offence anyone saying that the possibility of cutting li shang out the live-action remake of mulan is okay because “mulan” is about her saving china and being a model female protagonist not about her and shang can come and fight me because asian men are just as important as asian women being represented in the media??? there are children who grew up with li shang as their oNLY representation!! li shang was the son of a captain who wanted to make his father proud, wanted to protect his country and lead a good army for the emperor, and in the end, went against the law to save mulan’s life for his and helped her when she came to the capital to defeat the huns like you’re sitting here and saying that it’s 100% okay to cut that narrative away??? “mulan” wasn’t just about mulan saving china, it was about her rising to the ranks in her army through preservance and struggles, it was about mulan changing the minds around her to shape people that ended up respecting her through and through, as both a man and a woman, and if you take away li shang you’re taking away an integral part of mulan so fuck you, disney, if you go through with this, fuck you.

Step one of character design: don’t ever do research in public.

Have you ever noticed how many male artists make comments about how talented and amazing they are? They’re always out here saying “I’m the best” and everyone’s just like YASSS BABY BOY👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 But the millisecond a female artist even so much as compliments herself everyone’s calling her a vapid, self obsessed bitch. I’m tired of the double standards, I’m tired of women being thrown under the bus all the time while men get to do and say what they please and everyone just excuses it like it’s part of “their artistic process.”

Women’s football was massive in the First World War and after the war finished the football teams that had sprung up from ammunition factories remained very popular. The FA noticed, ‘women’s football? Why is everyone paying to watch women’s football? What’s this I hear about a 53,000 crowd watching women’s football at Goodison Park?’ then letters started to appear in the papers saying it was unfeminine, unladylike and medically unsound for women to play football. It was fine for them to work in ammunition factories and be exposed to all of that danger of explosions, that was fine but it was medically unsound for them to play football? The FA banned women’s football from being played on any FA affiliated pitch, which crushed it. The ban stood for 50 years.

I need to get something off my chest.

I know I said before that I personally don’t like the stereotypes yaoi has or the way fujoshis portray gay couples

But lately I feel like all the bashing against them or straight women who watch shows with LGBT characters in general is uncalled for

Usually, they simply enjoy the ship like any other ship(Of course excluding the ones who call it sin) and even learn to support the LGBT community along the way?

Meanwhile straight men who enjoy lesbian porn and content in general still treat the LGBTQA+ community like shit, only like lesbian couples for their sexual fantasies and even sometimes claim they dislike real life LBTQA+ women?? Yet I don’t see long ass posts bashing them or people giving them names with awful meanings like fujoshis?

Also, whenever there’s a show with a gay ship straight men spend their time bashing the shippers (and the show if this ship becomes canon), meanwhile straight women react to lesbian ships with neutrality and even positivity most of the time, if not always?

This feels like yet another way to hate on women…

damn… a corgi would have been so good too. _(」∠ 、ン、)_  but their son is a pomeranian. or a menacing war machine.

This has been hanging out on my computer for who knows how long so I thought I’d post it. I’ve been thinking about streaming while I paint. I wonder if anyone would be interested in watching?

(Location : Frankfort Airport - Police wanted to search a Muslim woman and take off her head scarf. She refused, so they gave her an electric shock. Watch how her husband reacted).

Regardless of who you wanted to win the Oscar, I think we can all agree that thinking you won and then having the award literally ripped from your hands is a pretty shitty thing to have happen to you, so it strikes me as really mean-spirited that there are people going “ahahaha, take that La La Land! That’s what you get for making a movie that isn’t about gay black men!”

But, you know, just one more way the Internet is slowly turning into overly invested Little League parents, just for minorities. Oh, the other team had a player fall and break his arm? “HO-HO-HO, THAT’S WHAT YOU GET FOR COMPETING AGAINST MY BRAYNE!”

It has been explained multiple times why mods that make characters like Dorian and Sera bi or straight are homophobic. These mods are not the same thing as #MakeJaalBi. Please understand, the coding is in the game. Jaal was originally created to be a bi romance but when the game launched, it was discovered that his mlm half of his romance had been cut. And please understand that if you are not a queer man, you don’t get to decide what is good or enough representation for queer men, only they do. Telling them to be happy with just Gil and Reyes or to settle for playing as Sara gains nothing and helps no one. We just want Bioware to stop erasing bi romances and to make a patch to return Jaal to his original bi romance. Let me emphasize this: /we do not want to take Jaal away from Sara, we only wish for Scott to have the same opportunity to romance Jaal that she does. We have nothing against people who are romancing Jaal with Sara and we hope you continue to enjoy his romance./ Thank you for taking the time to read this.❤️
