Here’s a couple versions of a print I’m working on of the inner senshi (plus Chibi Moon) as kids. I’m torn between the top (sans shoujo) and the bottom (avec shoujo) and could use some input as to which to go with for Mechacon. I can also toggle the amount of shoujo sparkle included, like keep the border sparkle but loose the sparkle on the girls. Just let me know V1 (no sparkle) V2 (all sparkle) or ‘nix the sparkle on the girls’.
definitely the shoujo.
Storm in cartoons: I AM STORM, MISTRESS OF THE ELEMENTS. YOU ARE NOTHING!
Storm in movies: Hi, I am supporting cast for Wolverine. I am also Halle Berry for reasons.
Storm in comics: African goddess. Headmistress. Wakandan Queen. Pansexual icon. I AM STORM, MISTRESS OF THE ELEMENTS. YOU ARE NOTHING!
Storm has long been my favorite superhero ever. I grew up with the (horrible) 80’s cartoon. But she was also the one that Professor X always respected. Everyone else was a “student” of his, even iif they were teachers. She was the one he went to for advice, or help. Ad yes, while she was “sexy,” or at least attractive in the traditional sense, I never got the impression that she was a sex object.
To me, she is how representation should be done. The fact she was African (African-American) never made her less of a character, or even a “token” character. The fact she was a woman never mattered. She was a badass who could make tornadoes. She had power over the SKIES. She has power equal to Thor, a GOD.
They look like they’re in a heist movie with Rihanna as the tough-as-nails leader/master thief and Lupita as the genius computer hacker
!!!!! So here for this!
Yes please. Where is this comic/show/movie?
if i had a dollar…
If I had a brick
sorry if I’m off topic but I’m so sick of people characterizing violent crime as “musta been mental illness” it throws us mentally ill people under the bus by perpetuating the stereotype that we’re dangerous
cant we just say there was something going on with that one guy?
ur totally right, many men don’t react violently when faced with rejection.
it was only this one guy.
And that’s why I will forever spite anyone who judges women for lying about having a boyfriend or being gay to avoid just plain out rejecting men.
Even that can get us violence, the girl talked about in the tweet actually HAD a boyfriend.
Can I just say that this actually makes me really scared to every reject guys over anything? And I really don’t want to feel that way.
Mentally sound people don’t do things like that. End of story. It’s not a “male” problem, it’s a “mental health” problem.
Yo, I have mental health problems and when a girl tells me no, I say okay. If I liked her a lot, I might go home and cry and moodily eat an ice cream bar or some other terrible-for-me sugar-laden food in front of anime reruns. And then I get over it.
Yes, there are women who have done this to men, but on the whole the number disproportionately men doing it to women. The problem is not mental health—it’s that we teach men from a young age that they should get what they want, the “nice guy” (who’s rarely nice at all) always gets the girl, girls exist for sexual gratification and as trophies … . and then some guys never get past that infantile, “I want it now and I’m going to have it and if I don’t get it I’M GOING TO DO AWFUL THINGS UNTIL I DO GET IT” toddler state.
I’m not saying that eveyone with mental health problems is angry and overly aggressive! I’m saying more that a guy with already existing anger problems or another issue is a lot more likely to react in a violent way. In fact, if a guy is violent due to rejection, I’d probably assume somethings wrong in his head. I don’t think all guys feel entitled. I’ve been physically threatened by a LOT more lesbians than guys. Why? Because girls, for whatever reason, find out that I’m bisexual and decide that they’d like to have sex with me and if I say no, im “homophobic” and a “fake bisexual”. That’s obviously not to say all lesbians are violent, either. I think what I’m trying to say is that if a man (or woman) feels entitled to something (a date, sex, a relationship, whatever), then there probably IS an underlying problem that needs to be dealt with. Because most people just don’t act violent or rude when someone rejects them!
And the problem is systemic. It’s in how we teach our boys.
this only has 800 something notes and that is seriously fucking sad
SIGNAL BOOST THIS SHOULD HAVE MORE THAN A FEW FUCKING NOTES REBLOG UNTIL WE BREAK THE LIMIT
plz direct yrself to THIS post if you think that comics like this are necessary and that cisphobia is a pressing issue thank you
it’s not to do with whether or not cisphobia is a genuine problem it’s about not fucking bullying people
No one is perfectly safe here unless they happen to be a person who is practically every repressed minority possible who conforms to all of Tumblr’s ideals, and even then someone would find a problem with you. No matter where you go you won’t find a true safe haven. people will always find reasons to send people hate. opinions, lifestyle, physical looks…
Seriously, guys. Just because Majority groups seem to have it made doesn’t mean that they don’t face their own problems because of it. And you don’t support one group of people by putting down another group of people. If you do that then YOU are creating the problem.
Its OK to be *insert Gender identity*
Its OK to be *Insert Sexuality*
It’s OK to be *Insert skin color*
Its OK to be *Insert body type*
It’s OK to be from *Insert country*
It’s OK to be struggling with *Insert mental or physical problems*
It’s OK to be yourself
It is NOT ok to shame, harass, bully, etc. other people for being different than you or being something they have no control over.
Thank you! This describes so much of the issue I see on Tumblr, and sometimes even in the LBGQT community. I have friends of all varieties of gender, sexuality, race, and so forth. I just happen to be a white, straight, cis, woman. I respect people regardless of their choices and believe in equality for everyone. And I will fight with those people who are different from me because everyone deserves happiness and respect.
But for some reason, because I’m not *insert minority group here*, I see all kinds of flack. And it hurts, because I’m being told my friendship and my support mean nothing.
I’m not accusing anyone. I’ve met so many nice people of all kinds and there are so few people who seem to have any issues. But its that tiny majority that seem to be so active on tumblr.
Just puttin that out there.
I try and bring up how he ruined free in state tuition in the name of hippie bashing when he was California’s governor often, but don’t exactly have the biggest platform.
I wondered who’s fault this was.
you know, I’m not the one who drew this, just reblogged……
They’re all lining up for their weekly mandatory Big Rico’s order. All at the same time.
Playin the destiny beta on ps3. If anyone wants to join, lemme know.
I have a blue lead pencil I got from jet pens (I bought a pencil I liked with a comfy grip and the blue lead separate) and I use B lead (slightly softer and darker than HB, it feels creamier when I draw.) Its just standard sketch paper. I answer most of the rest of that in my artbook.
Thanks! That means so much! Dashcon was actually not so bad, minus all the drama. Everyone who attended was super great
YES. Because one is productive; the other does nothing.
they refuse to hear you though
So in response to sad Carlos, have a waiting Carlos. Headcanon says he hasn’t changed the sheets since Carlos left, and plays his voicemail at night just to hear Carlos’s voice.
HEY DID I MAKE YOU SAD YET?
