The blob on my head is supposed to be a headscarf, btw.
You lost all credibility when you brought up psychosexual development.
Because people just can't choose to be different by understanding the effects of their actions.
No, they must understand Freud's theories of anal fixation and whatnot before they can change in response to external stimuli aka "learning".
You must learn all this sciency shit before you can learn anything.
Don't expect a child to understand that hitting other people is wrong, wait till they've got a Masters Degree!
I guess we can agree that "dumb" people will follow whatever they are raised to believe.
I was wondering how long it would take for someone to become insufferable about how wonderfully intelligent they are. It's hasn't even been an hour since this thread was made...
Some day, you're going to look over this stuff and hide your self in shame. You’re going to look over this and wonder "was I really this obnoxious?" (The answer is yes, by the way. Yes, you are.)
Just because someone is slower to grasp concepts doesn't mean that they'll ever grasp them. Just because someone can question what they were taught doesn't mean that they will deviate from it. In fact, it could lead them to believing it even more strongly.
Vitriol? You misunderstand. I am a Good Girl, the Goodest of them all, actually.
Anything I say or do should not be taken as my personal feelings, but rather as the voice of justice itself.
That said, this is fucking bullshit.
IKR? Reading is for losers. Be a cool kid an cryogenically preserve your body for the next morning. Actually, don’t stop there. Do it for the next hundred years.
Then, you can make a better Avatar movie or something.
So, what you're saying is "I saw this thing on the Internet, it's mostly bullshit, but hey let's talk about it cause the forum is dead as fuck."
Are you guys seriously debating tumblr politics here? Seriously?
Also, how dare people complain something? How dare they have different opinions than yours?
For all your tumblr hate, you guys are sounding frighteningly close to the stereotype.
Point is that things aren't always so clear cut. I haven't watched enough to get a grasp on the characters but I'll go with what you said. Even if a show has decently written female characters, it doesn't mean it can't be sexist in other regards.
Just because a show is strong in one point doesn’t mean it's strong everywhere else or even consistently on that point.
While Free! was surprisingly well written, it was unashamedly yaoi fanbait. Just because this might have a decent plot and characterization doesn’t mean that the character designers didn't pour hours into deciding what Japanese businessmen would find most faptastic.
Here's something else. Just because something's been used for a while doesn't mean it's not sexist. Your basic argument is "why are you complaining about it now?"
The same reason that half the people in this thread complained about. Fucking rape metaphors. Blatant this-is-extremely-funny-and-not-taken-seriously-at-all rape metaphors.
The idea that rape "is a thing that happens to women" (aka you're a woman, it happens. If we need drama, it happens. If we need anything, it's an answer.) instead of a horrifying disgusting crime that can happen to anyone is hella sexist.
I don't know who told you differently.
My viewing experience went like this:
Girl is being forced into revealing clothing she is clearly uncomfortable with > closes tab immediately
If this is meant to be feminist (which I doubt), then it's fucking gross.
If you like the fanservice, good for you. Just admit it and spare everyone the bullshit.
