you know what trend on this website that really needs to stop? (okay there are thousands)
taking female driven narratives and making all the leads dudes. just stop. just stop taking away female narratives. stop making the disney princesses into princes. stop stop stop. society does that enough as it is. it’s not like there is some shortage of male characters for you to fawn over. stop taking away the few ladies who are given agency just stop
I compiled some personal tactics and crowd sourced DIY remedies for the sads (clinical term) into a mini comic! Enjoy xoxo
I try to be as fair and unbiased as possible when taking a look at controversial media (particularly media that is considered controversial for reasons related to sexism, sexual assault and rape) because it is an issue that is extremely close to me as both a victim of rape and, frankly, a person in general. When Kill la Kill was first subbed and introduced to English-speaking audiences it was received with mixed reviews. Some hailed it as a piece of revolutionary, feminist media and others criticized it for being sexist and damaging to people everywhere.
Under normal circumstances, I would wait until the entire show had aired before passing judgment but after watching some 16 episodes of Kill la Kill I have come to a conclusion, and unfortunately it is not a positive one.
tbh I will always reblog those “cut manipulative/toxic/abusive people out of your life! You deserve better” because yes: true. But I constantly find myself side eyeing them bc while its a good message that should be spread I also wanna see more posts about how living with manipulative/toxic/abusive people isn’t always as easy as cutting that person from your life altogether and the people struggling with that deserve mad respect and support
