Anonymous sent: You should really try to enjoy shows like Gravity Falls instead of finding racism and sexism where it doesn't exist.

You’re saying something horribly dangerous here. You basically suggest that where I see violence and unjust, I should look away and pretend it’s not there. Only those not affected can do that stuff. If that weak-ass lifestyle is your thing and you like to exploit your privileges, there’s not much I can do. There’s enough of your kind; that’s why everything stays shit!

But I will be vocal about racism and all those subjects, for I know who it affects and I want people to have fun and be happy. Also, you know jackshit about racism and sexism if you do not see that stuff in that latest GF episode (Soos and the Real Girl). Quoting a friend:

"There’s an awful scene in that GF episode where they make fun of the japanese language by translating a pretty easy japanese part as semi-nonsense. (look up anthyding can hadplen) They also threw in adult jokes about tentacle rape in there. There’s also a part where Soos misgenders a feminine looking person while searching for a girl to ask out ("are you a girl, a boy? a girl right?). I originally liked Giffany for being so robot-like but after searching Robertsons art I now feel very disgusted."

So yeah, lol, and do this little exercise before coming back, ok.

Anonymous sent: any movies coming out you excited for?

Dreamworks Home. I would like to see Chibli’s “When Marnie was there”. I might check out Book of Life, but I want to hear what feminist Mexican women have to say about it first.
I’m more of a series and long running franchises fan than movies however.

Buck is too cute for this nonsense and the spoopy so I am just gonna be Hexiciah or something, idek. I am bothering with monsters all year anyway, be it Moshi or High. Maybe I should do some Ruby Gloom appreciation.

If Dipper’s writing blew over your head, I wouldn’t say it’s your place to judge people on Gravity Falls knowledge. Lmao

Anonymous sent: japanese people make anime girls look blond all the time because girls colour their hair differently when they want. i also felt it girl was a parody not anything else maybe of dating game or harem anime. also the girl does not have to be a kid, she could just be flat. i think as well that she can be read as young so it is creepy. if possible, can you spell out more thought about the video? also what did you think about recent gravity falls episode where soos plays a cursed dating game?

What does her hair have anything to do with it? Parodies that do not do anything different are just doing it but are “aware” so they call it a parody; not helping. I really do not know where to begin with Otaku loli-con stuff because you seem to be aware what it is but also not completely. It’s just a combo of pedophilia, misogyny and yellow fever. The fact he only shows light skinned anime girls is glaring.

I have not watched that episode of Gravity Falls. There are various reasons for this.

  1. I was afraid Paul Robertson animated this, like he did that fighting game episode. If you…look up his art….I rather you don’t. Just read this instead.
  2. If Gravity Falls makes queerphobic jokes and supports this dude and writes Dipper the way they do which hurts both Mabel and Wendy, I am not gonna bother with this show, cool mystery or not.
  3. I do not like the idea of Soos being otaku. (Informed he isn’t)
  4. I felt, from what I’ve seen, that it made fun of animesque art and I am done with that. I don’t want to see that anymore. I don’t want us to be inspired by beautiful art only to present it to audiences as “whacky japanese” stuff. It’s vile. I want us to celebrate what we learned from. And if you want to see it made fun of, there are enough anime and manga that do that already.

It has been 4 days since the Daily Growl updated, and if nothing happens today, I’m just gonna headcanon Roary was angry with me making fun of him and his blog on Twitter. If today nothing happens again, making it day 5 (seriously, I am down for for Bubble Trouble at this point) I will just become the Daily Growl myself, as announced also on Twitter.

No Rox for anyone, though, what would you even spend it on?

DID. PHARRELL. JUST.

NO. It’s not my place to judge this shit. B-but…
This “new black” dude. Liking anime girls. Only light skinned. Loli’s.
I’m certain there are people going “I FUCKING KNEW IT” now.

When Brazilian graphic designer Carol Rossetti began posting colorful illustrations of women and their stories to Facebook, she had no idea how popular they would become. 

Thousands of shares throughout the world later, the appeal of Rosetti’s work is clear. Much like the street art phenomenon Stop Telling Women To Smile, Rossetti’s empowering images are the kind you want to post on every street corner, as both a reminder and affirmation of women’s bodily autonomy. 

"It has always bothered me, the world’s attempts to control women’s bodies, behavior and identities," Rossetti told Mic via email. "It’s a kind of oppression so deeply entangled in our culture that most people don’t even see it’s there, and how cruel it can be."

Rossetti’s illustrations touch upon an impressive range of intersectional topics, including LGBTQ identity, body image, ageism, racism, sexism and ableism. Some characters are based on the experiences of friends or her own life, while others draw inspiration from the stories many women have shared across the Internet. 

"I see those situations I portray every day," she wrote. "I lived some of them myself."

Despite quickly garnering thousands of enthusiastic comments and shares on Facebook, the project started as something personal — so personal, in fact, that Rossetti is still figuring out what to call it. For now, the images reside in albums simply titled “WOMEN in english!" or "Mujeres en español!" which is fitting: Rossetti’s illustrations encompass a vast set of experiences that together create a powerful picture of both women’s identity and oppression.

One of the most interesting aspects of the project is the way it has struck such a global chord. Rossetti originally wrote the text of the illustrations in Portuguese, and then worked with an Australian woman to translate them to English. A group of Israeli feminists also took it upon themselves to create versions of the illustrations in Hebrew. Now, more people have reached out to Rossetti through Facebook and offered to translate her work into even more languages. Next on the docket? Spanish, Russian, German and Lithuanian.

It’s an inspiring show of global solidarity, but the message of Rossetti’s art is clear in any language. Above all, her images celebrate being true to oneself, respecting others and questioning what society tells us is acceptable or beautiful.

"I can’t change the world by myself," Rossetti said. "But I’d love to know that my work made people review their privileges and be more open to understanding and respecting one another."

Tomorrow is the day of the premier, I’m very excited!

SO EVERYONE LOOK AT THIS HAHAH
Very mixed emotions because I’m happy to see some animation from our country, as an animation enthusiast, buuuuut…

The plot here is just a bunch of animals also wanting presents.
Always these animals when we talk race, man. What’s up with that?

"Race"? Well, this of course touches upon the Zwarte Piet = racist caricature debate. Newspaper said they made ‘em brown instead of black “because that looked friendlier”…um, ok? It’s still a white man leading a bunch of non-white men that will be read by the audience as non-white.

When I was younger it was very important to me when they introduced a female Zwarte Piet. Look at that crowd of copy pasta men. They made Zwarte Piet move like they’re from Assassin’s Creed, that’s sorta cool.

Hilarisch! Animatienetwerk steekt de draak met Nederland en haar zwarte pieten

Nederland wordt stukje bij beetje uit de progressieve elite van de wereld gestoten. Zelfs de mogelijkheid om wiet te mogen roken kan ons niet meer helpen volgens de sketch. Hilarisch!

Wat het nog pijnlijker maakt zijn de reacties van de boze zwarte piet liefhebbers onder het filmpje. Wat mij dan ook altijd zo intrigeert is dat het…

Robot Chicken has made a lot of tasteless jokes but THIS, THOUGH!
Like, seriously, they even toned down how we show that caricature.
However, Zwarte Piet doesn’t whipe shoes for as far as I’ve been bombared with this stuff all my life. Just bakes pepernoten and does some toys administration. Basically does all the work.
