The intro cards for Futurama have always been one of my favorite parts of the show because people always talk about the old Simpson’s couch gag but this is just pure gold… I mean-

It goes from everything from

and then they made fun of how much everyone reacted to the the infamous ‘dead dog episode’ that I cried about…

And then one time when the show got canceled…

and then when it came back..

LOL man.

never forget white people did nothing first neither the best, they sleep and eat false propaganda,

Ugh, why the shit does that have to turn into a race thing? Why does EVERYTHING have to turn into a race thing?

because white people have made sure that everything is about race
as proved by the fact that when you say explorer, you think of a bunch of white guys walking the world and discovering it ~exotic wonders~ even though Zheng He travelled through Asia, to the Middle East, and even East Africa. But you’d likely never heard of him before.
Same reason you never heard of Ahmad Ibn Fadlan, an Arab traveller who, as early as the 10th century, went to the Volga area for diplomatic reasons. He wrote about it, much as Marco Polo would do later for his own travels, and is one of our sources on what viking were like (and by all accounts, he wrote about them more accurately than western scholars of the same period did)
Oh, or Ibn Battuta who travelled throughout Africa long before europeans did, and even went to Europe himself.
And that’s just some example of Muslim medieval travel writers
Everything is about race because white people keep telling everyone that their race is the only one who every got anything done.

i have heard of precisely zero non-european explorers ever in my life, and that fucking sucks. this exhibit is amazing and i need to learn more.

That boat is a frickin aircraft carrier comparatively. Holy crap. And no. Never heard a peep.

Zhenghe went to over 40 countries in Asia and Africa and probably went even further, but I didn’t encounter that in history books before. He brought gifts from China to every country he went to and everyone loved him. It was just like “Hey, I’m here with a water-helicarrier and a gift,” and the kings of every country were lilke “holy shit son well here have a giraffe.” There are paintings depicting him leading a giraffe as well. Check him out guys, he’s really cool

That is so awesome. Fuck western history. This is the real shit.

This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.

Meet Captain Nieves Fernandez, the only known Filipino female guerrilla leader and school teacher. When the Japanese came to take the children under her care she shot them. She didn’t hide in a closet, she didn’t put up a gun free zone sign, she shot them in the face with her latong (a home made shotgun).She then went on to kill over 200 Japanese soldiers during the war with a group of commandos and holds the distinction as the only female commander of a resistance group in the Philippines.In this photo she is showing U.S. Army Pvt. Andrew Lupiba how she used her bolo to silently kill Japanese sentries during the occupation of Leyte Island.

For some reason, I’m specifically stuck on the breast size difference. Lana has small boobs, like all good hearted people.

I keep trying to figure out if the boobs thing is really that Lana’s are small, or just Cia’s seem…

"I live in a neighborhood where my husband & I are 1 of the 3 Black families that live here.. Tonight the KKK knocked on our door!!! I was already looking out the window and seen them coming down my driveway. I screamed for my children to come upstairs in my room and into my master bath. . As I seen there faces in fear.. my mind flash back to Malcom X. My oldest understand but not the rest. My husband prides his self on teaching his wife & family self defense when he not home…. My heart was pounding! Palms sweating! Voice weak.. I look at my son.. And my mind drifted to Micheal Brown, Treyvon.Martin, Shawn Bell. WE legal over here.. everything registered! As the knocks kept coming .. I mustard up the voice strength to say just a minute! My body weak.. but my mind strong! I open the door.. Scope on! Beam on! Safety off!!! WHAT CAN I DO FOR YALL!!! Cause you at THE WRONG HOUSE! #FacesPriceless!! I will Protect. My Home, My Children, MY LEGACY!!!"

I wasn’t aware that strong, sexually empowered women are in fact a demeaning social trope.
If you had ever played the games, or even mildly researched them, you’d know that Bayonetta is both highly sexualized for the benefit of the viewer AS WELL as being sexually empowered for herself. If you want to hate the former, you have to hate the latter, and that’s rather misogynistic, don’t you think?

Also, just gonna toss this out there: Bayonetta’s designer, Mari Shimazaki, has said that she designed Bayonetta as a power fantasy for herself and that Bayonetta’s personality and attitude is “what she aspires to be more like” because she wants to feel sexy for her own sake, not society’s and also she’s tired of women being both expected to and being shamed for trying to look beautiful. She simply wants to feel powerful, but also beautiful.



See thing is this shit is actually pretty complicated.
In the same way that we have to be mindful that games are designed by people (someone designed, scripted and coded all those scenes shown in Tropes Vs Women, whether you think they’re ‘cherry picked’ or not); we must also remember that multiple people work on a single title, and the politics of a game can come from many sources.
I LOVE Shimazaki’s work. You can tell that she works in a lot of love for high fashion as well as her own preferences of what it means to look cool, sexy and dangerous.
There are some very convincing readings of Bayonetta 1 that represent Bayonetta the character and the game’s plot as something feminist and empowering (you are, after all taking on a patriarchal cult using the very tools that were used to oppress you and your kind); but that reading requires death of the author to work.
Because (unfortunately, IMO), Hideki Kamiya is a thing. For all that Mari Shimazaki says, for all of the empowering academic readings you can find, Hideki Kamiya has pretty much never talked about Bayonetta as a character without mentioning how much of a sex object she is. That’s sex object, not like, sexual force of nature or anything.
Any designs or opinions Shimazaki has are filtered through Kamiya to appear in the end project. His opinions are almost literally final.
If you’ve looked through the Bayonetta 1 art book (It’s called The Eyes of Bayonetta, it has like, 50 pages of Shimazaki costume design and SMH if you’re a fan of this game and don’t have it), there is a notable discord between Shimazaki talking about her design decisions, and Kamiya talking about why he asked for certain design decisions.
There’s a particularly gross part where he talks about how he insisted that there be an alternate costume for Bayo that’s Japanese school gym clothes (y’know, those super anime short-shorts that real JP schools no longer have students wear because it’s too pedo), and roped the 3D modeller to make a whole bunch of renders of it for Kanmiya to wear on t-shirts.
The funny side of this being the 3D modeller also states in the book that he had to break model’s rigging to get Bayo into the poses Kamiya wanted. Escher Girls was right, yo.
Then there’s that whole thing where Kamiya in an interview said that the Vs Joy scene in Bayo 1 was there because he thought that women, even strangers, were inherently competitive against each other. Oh boy.
I REALLY like Bayonetta. It’s one of my favourite games ever. I wish I also had those glasses and gun heels. But it would be a bald-faced fucking lie to think that aesthetic design decisions aren’t heavily grounded in what gives straight dudes (or at least what gives Kamiya) a chubby.
