are you kidding me that place must ROAST its inhabitants in summer
Obviously Robert Downey Jr. is auditioning to play Tuxedo Mask, yes?
THANK GOD I WASN’T THE ONLY ONE WHO SAID IT!
In regards to some stuff that I’ve seen on my dash lately, and in the Sailor Moon fandom in general:
Naoko Takeuchi wrote a very, very sapphic manga. The pivotal romance is heterosexual, yes, but almost all of the other relationships, as well as a hefty amount of the cast, are queer in some way. There is a lot of erotic subtext surrounding the relationships between the senshi, and I don’t mean ‘homoerotic’ in the ‘two white dudes staring longingly at each other across your tv screen’ way.
It bothers me when people don’t allow Sailor Moon to be the bounty of queerhood that it is. (It has also started bothering me that cishet people who argue wrongheadedly against this shit use the word ‘queer,’ but that’s a personal investigation for another day.) It really bothers me when people dismiss the fact that Takeuchi has done a lot for queer representation, and more than once I’ve seen this couched in terms of ‘well how could a straight woman possibly be taking the queer representation of her characters seriously?’
A) If Naoko Takeuchi is 100% heterosexual at all times forever, that doesn’t undermine or dismiss the excellent queer representation in her works, the examination of gender, the intensity of romance between women, Usagi and Haruka’s fraught relationship, etc.
B) Naoko Takeuchi is married to a man. That is literally all we know about her sexuality, because she is a pretty private person. If you say things like ‘oh she only likes Takarazuka, she can’t possibly be into women in any way, and thus her queer representation of women means nothing’ then you become patently ridiculous. (and let me tell you how hardcore hot ladies in suits are, Yamato Yuuga Exhibit A)
C) When you turn your nose up or blatantly ignore the queer content of an extremely homoerotic, gender-fucking-with, and generally romantic all across the board manga and then turn around and praise the anime for being that, you’re dismissing the work of the original female artist in favor of a male director doing the same thing. And I love Kunzite and Zoisite. I respect Kunihiko Ikuhara a great deal, but what he achieved in Sailor Moon was only possible because of Naoko Takeuchi.
In a time when both Marvel and DC seem to refuse to make movies starring female superheroes, it was announced today that the Soska Sisters will be directing a Painkiller Jane movie. This means that not only is there going to be a comic book superhero movie starring a woman, but that movie will be directed by two women and the character that the movie is about is a bisexual woman.
oh dang this looks cool as shit

… give or take a few. Here’s a (most definitely incomplete) list of characters who have worn the Robin uniform, played a Robin-like role or a role in a way connected to being Robin.
Starting off, the Big Five: Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, Tim Drake, Stephanie Brown and Damian Wayne.
what do we say to the god of death?

Well Played Clothing is excited to announce our new Minecraft polo!
In addition to the adorable embroidered pickaxe and soft, pre-shrunk Pima cotton, what makes this shirt special is the heathered grey fabric that gives it a pixelated look all over!
Started slow, but is getting remarkably good.
Also if this merry crew did not have Riku on it to keep them on track, they would all be past dead
And I appreciate that
