A collection of things that I like and enjoy. Will include lots and lots of fandom junk, Animals, Interesting Art and funny memes and stories.

Might also include some writing if I ever get around to it.

Warning: Could display opinions.

For once, I do believe I am in the extreme minority of the tumblr TF fandom: I am a feminist who doesn’t give a shit about Windblade!

I think I am also in the extreme minority as I am a feminist who actually…

Now I’m imagining tumblr rants like they’re jet fuel and if you rant too hard then you’ll accidentally launch off into space.  

Really, it explains so much about tumblr.

I think I am also in the extreme minority as I am a feminist who actually enjoyed Furman’s version of Arcee’s origins.

nah brah I…

Yep.  I can acknowledge problems but like it anyway.  Not judging Wingblade yet, though.  Especially since I’ve liked the whole stupid Cybertronian colonies lost in space ages ago pretty much forgot they were Cybertronian and are all differently adapted little dicks.

Bryan Fischer: The Poor 'Ought To Be Kissing The Ground' Upon Which The Rich Walk

bspolitics:

There’s a video at the link.

A religious leader literally preaching to kiss the wealthy’s ass. There is something so incredibly disgusting about this.

Plus, I really don’t think Mr. Christ would approve …

So, any thoughts on Windblade’s difference in internal energon?

Because in virtually every other fiction (ie all the male-coded Cybertronians), it’s purple.

Since Caminus has a hot spot, does that mean the Camiens (who I think are implied to be all-female, I could be wrong?) have a different physiology? Windblade said they evolved from their default Cybertronian nature. 

Just an interesting little thing.

FAKE GEEK GUYS: A MESSAGE TO MEN ABOUT SEXUAL HARASSMENT
By Andy Khouri
“I think this woman is wrong about something on the Internet. Clearly my best course of action is to threaten her with rape.”
That’s crazy talk, right? So why does it happen all the time?
Honest question, dudes.
That women are harassed online is not news. That women in comics and the broader fandom cultures are harassed online is not news. That these women are routinely transmitted anonymous messages describing graphic sexual violence perpetrated upon them for transgressions as grave as not liking a thing… that is actually news to me, and it’s probably news to a lot of you guys reading this.
So what do we do about it?
This.

This is important.

Read this, it’s important.
ESPECIALLY if you’re a man. If you’re a woman, it’ll just be comforting. It won’t tell you a single thing new. But this is how we need men to engage with feminism. I’ve talked a bit recently about how men who seek to dominate feminist discoure because they think they understand it better than women need to STFU. And I’ve received a fair number of negative, ignorant comments from men about that (thankfully, no rape threats, but it still wasn’t nice) and some of them very definitely were written with the intention of silencing me from speaking about feminism, in defence of a male idea of what ‘true’ feminism should be. But, despite what most of the deliberate misreadings interpreted me as saying, I did not say and do not think that men should not have a voice in feminism.
Men have an important voice and an important role to play. And the most important thing a man can do if he wants to support equality is to step up and talk to other men about the damage they do, about the toxic opinions they hold and assume are the majority opinion. These guys keep thinking this rubbish and acting on this rubbish because they do not see it challeneged  by any one of consequence (they do not view women as of consequence, and they do everything in their power to silence women and to make us feel worthless, and that our opinions are worthless). They think their opinion is the majority view. And if you think they are wrong, it’s your job to speak up and show them that they are not speaking for all men.
Did a woman just say ‘Ugh, men do x-really-shitty-thing’? Did you have an impulse to say ‘Not ALL men!’ Here’s the radical new idea: do not say to her ‘Not ALL men!’, instead, when you see the thing she’s objecting to in other men, tell THAT guy ‘STFU - you may think that all men agree with you, but we bloody don’t!’.
Women are not the people who need to hear that not all men are sexist pigs. Men are.
Men need to know that they do not have solidarity in their own gender if they express sexist opinions. Men need to know that some men are not sexist. Men need to know that some men are feminist. Men need to know that some men will stand up to them when they try to present a united front against women.
This guy, Andy Khouri, writing this article? He’s got delivering some truth bombs to other men about this shit. If you’re a man, read it. It may contain some bombs you hadn’t been hit with yet. It definitely does contain some good advice about how you can start being part of the solution, and not a  bystander. Because bystanders are not innocent, here, they are part of the problem. Quoth he:

Sexual harassment isn’t an occupational hazard. It’s not a glitch in the complex matrix of modern life. It’s not something that just “happens.” It’s something men do. It’s a choice men make. It’s a problem men enable. It’s sometimes a crime men commit…
It’s on us.
…
Sexism. Harassment. Misogyny. Not with my superheroes. No, that’s some fake geek guy bullsh*t right there.

You know what I was going to do today? … well, not this. Then I read Windblade #1 and I sort of had to, because they’re such great dorks.

I love all your drawings! They're amazing! Quick question: Who do you think are the better/worse parents and why: Goku and Chi Chi or Vegeta and Bulma?

stupidoomdoodles:

Chi Chi is probably the only person who should be allowed to even raise children out of those four, eh. Goku is nice and a good person but he’s unable to provide ANYTHING for his children, except maybe good training. Also he’s (obviously) never there. Bulma is also relatively nice and provides good education and situation, but she’s…obviously not very responsible (“super dangerous androids who can destroy cities with a flick of their little finger ? i GuESS ILL JUST FLY THERE WITH MY NEWBORN BABY UEHEUHEUHUEH”). And do I even NEED to explain why vegeta is an absolutely terrible choice for parenthood ?

Chi Chi is an excellent mother. Not only did she manage to raise two very good sons (and SAIYANS too. she had to FEED THEM and MANAGE THEIR STRENGHTS all alone for YEARS. i have NO IDEA how she did it but seriously i’m admirative), but she’s obviously always pushing them harder. She noticed how gohan was a naturally born intellectual, and she pushed him with studies, good schooling and later on, even tried to marry him into a rich family in order to secure his future (and it worked. chi chi you are an inspiration). she also noticed that goten didn’t have his brother’s smarts, and then she took it upon herself to train him personally. She’s always cheering them on during budokais and stuff, and she’s pretty darn laid back about fighting later on in the series, even though she knows she’s sending her family to their deaths half the time. Seriously, chi chi is great. she needs more recognition for what she’s accomplished as a mother.

My god, positive post about Chi Chi that are pretty good points.  We’ve reached the future.

I actually believe artists and scientists think very similarly. Complex, abstract thought? They both have that down. It’s all about where that thinking takes you after that.

Words cannot describe how much I love this post.
