Diamonds & Plexiglass

I wield a Red Lantern ring on one hand and a Violet ring on the other. Of the spectrum, these are the most unstable.

I am full of Rage and Love.

So I think we were all pretty righteously pissed off today. And then Greg Rucka reminded us all why we buy so many of his comics.

And like some lesser designs, you can also buy this on a shirt.

I rarely use this to just blog. I’m going to just blog now, so you can all just ignore this if it’s not to your liking.

new sailor moon anime is making dudebros piss and moan and it isn’t even out yet. I’m so proud.

how is that pissing and moaning? they’re rightfully pointing out that you can’t gender a fucking anime

It’s not gendering an anime to point out it was made for women and the majority of the consumers are women. Sailor Moon DID capture the hearts of girls everywhere. It isn’t like there’s a footnote that says “BUT NO BOY HEARTS WERE CAPTURED”

It means a whole fucking lot to a lot of girls because it is rare to get a superhero that is aimed to empower them. Naoko Takeuchi said she made Sailor Moon for girls, to empower girls. She has said this. That was her goal. She wanted to reach girls. You have a problem with that, and the advertisements acknowledging this was the aim of Sailor Moon, that’s really fucking sad.

seriously how is anyone surprised by this.

Whenever dudebros see one thing in this world not aimed towards them, they piss and moan about their balls shriveling up. number one, balls /=/ being a guy. Number 2- go watch the thousands of other things FOR YOU. 

In America, you have plenty. Women aren’t considered an audience worth drawing in. Media studies have shown executives often only target men and figure women don’t need to be targeted bc they’ve been forced to watch shit aimed at men, to put up with male aimed fanservice, their whole lives. They will come with the dudes. They CANCELED superhero cartoons recently using the fact it was too popular with the female viewership instead of the male viewership. Girls don’t often get stuff for them. Disney princesses (which are currently avoiding putting the name of female characters in the movie titles  so boys will go see them). my little pony, which gets a bunch of dudes taking it over, making porn and actually making it uncomfortable for little girls to attend it.Definitely not fucking superheroes (say Wonder Woman and NOT SINCE THE 1970S notice how she doesn’t have a movie or a cartoon and her comic panders towards dudes).

So when I see American dudes feeling put upon that Japanese media aims some stuff towards girls? zero sympathy. 

Aiming towards girls is what made Sailor Moon what it is.

I feel intense pity for men who can’t handle being put second ever. This is not made for you. You can still enjoy it. Just try to resist the urge not to be catered to or put first in every series you watch.

Naoko Takeuchi is a Japanese feminist and Sailor Moon is definitely a series created “for girls, by girls”. It’s always been that way for the entire 20 year history of the show, even BEFORE production plans were made during Sailor V’s serialization. 

Boys are welcome (and I would even encourage them!) in the Sailor Moon fandom, but just as women are expected to deal with the fact that comic books aren’t created with their focus in mind, I think men can be expected to not demand that a little girl’s anime series be catered to them.

do action movies know they can have more than one female character

Someone should make an action movie with all girls except for one guy and have no explanation or mention of it in the movie and then pay all of the actors to act surprised like they’d never noticed when they get the inevitable storm of questions. 

This one male must have a shower scene, be saved by the protagonist at least once, and fall in love with a lead female.

"The gender someone calls themselves doesn’t bestow any magic powers or insight or ability." - Such hypocritical garbage. A female "creator" could literally wipe her ass on a sheet of paper and get called awesome by the sewing circle.

Originally, Black Canary was a non-powered vigilante named Dinah Drake. During appearances in the Silver Age, in crossovers with the Justice League of America, she became popular enough that she was brought to Earth One to join the JLA.

It was decided that there were TWO Black Canaries, a mother, the original, who stayed on Earth Two and was a member of the JSA, and her DAUGHTER, Dinah Lance, who had a genetic mutation called the “Canary cry,” and came to Earth One to join the JLA.

Charmingly, this younger Dinah, last name Lance, was watched over by her ‘uncles’ in the Justice Society, many of whom taught her fighting and other skills she uses to this day!

Do you think there could ever be a way for Helena Bertinelli to come back? I know she's technically dead and was 'never' Huntress in the new 52, but I like to think that she feigned her death and one day she'll show up on Helena Wayne's doorstep and angrily demand to know why she impersonated her for years.

I hope so, I brought this up just last week again and no movement yet but I hope so.

Helena Bertinelli is a distinct and unique character, and I MISS HER BAD.
