It’s hilarious when people push males out of the magical girl fandom for being “invasive” or accuse them of being “perverts” but in the same breath praise a show like Madoka—with a male target audience—for lacking excessive fanservice and love all over Sailor Moon—created by a female with a female target audience—despite having a massive amount of fanservice (panty shots, official nudes of Usagi, etc.).

Oh stop… I’ll give you Madoka because the kind of fan service it has (moe) is one that Westerners aren’t used to so a lot of us wouldn’t catch it, but ALL nudity isn’t fanservice. You’re really going to say that the obviously artistic nudity in Sailor Moon art books is in any way on the same level as the uninvited boob grabbing passed off as cute mischief in a lot of fan servicey anime? Don’t get mad because people call you what you are, anon…
where are all these female fans “pushing males” out of the fandom en mass? i just see male fans pushing women out of most of the nerd scene and acting like any fandom space that doesn’t cater to them is some sort of threat (or that women expressing discomfort with creepy or sexist behavior is “pushing them out”)
you’re also not making much of a case for yourself not being a pervert when you list all the “fan service” in magical anime about under age girls as reason that you “belong” here
laughing at how CNN went into one of the looted businesses in Ferguson and spoke to the owner. the reporter started asking all these leading questions that were clearly setting up answers that expressed anger that their businesses were broken into.
The owner was like “actually I just want justice for Mike Brown im not worried about material things”
I am not Mike Brown. I am white. I am middle class. I am female. I am small. I am not considered a threat. When police see me they see someone who looks like them. They see their mothers, their daughters, their sisters, themselves. I am not at risk of being shot by police for existing while black. I am not at risk of being shot while unarmed. I am not at risk of being shot while armed with nothing more than a BB gun. I am not at risk of being shot for reaching for my wallet. I am privileged.
But I am outraged. And if you aren’t outraged, then you aren’t paying attention. This is America in 2014. This is our reality. It’s so easy to get jaded and to ignore these atrocities, to act like this doesn’t affect us. It’s so easy to get apathetic. In the past it was the youth who protested. Where is the rage of the youth? Where is our rage?
Like I said, I am not Mike Brown. But I am outraged.
Two ways of dealing with tear gas grenades from comrades in Turkey: Either submerge them in water. Make sure you can close off the container cause the gas will still spread for a while. Or throw them in the fire so the gas burns off before it can spread.
Black people are being brutalized as we speak, but all you have is this? A cheeky response about how I have “issues” for being upset at what’s happening in Ferguson? Isn’t the actual issue here your utter and complete lack of compassion and empathy for black people, rather than me being upset when an 8-year-old black kid is hit by tear gas in Ferguson, amongst other things? Askers like this are disgusting and it’s just so emblematic of how white supremacist thinking is a form of sociopathy.
