roborenard:

absolutely destroy the idea that you have to be loved romantically and love romantically

destroy the idea that the end goal of life is to get into a romantic relationship/marriage

romantic love isn’t a requirement to live life and it never will be

I know this but then why do I get so envious of BL manga even when I know that in real life these guys would make me want to punch them in the face. Ugghhh. But it’s like, I kind of get envious of BOTH characters though. I really want to feel those feelings but I don’t want to BE either of them. And then I feel really unsatisfied about my life and depressed. WHAT DO YOU DO ABOUT THAT KIND OF THING I DON’T EVEN KNOW.

more yaoi manga end-note comments amusing me:

"The one thing that I always think about is what kind of underpants do the people in fantasy worlds wear? (Eh? there’s no such thing?) Val too, he brings clothes and changes clothes but there’s no way a dressing unit can follow behind him, right? (laugh). No matter how hard I think about what kind of clothes I should draw, in the end I like drawing buttocks better (laugh)."
- Yamane Ayano

I guess it is not at all surprising at all that BL authors are all total pervs ^^;;;;; I don’t think you have to be as much of a perv to enjoy reading them as you do to actually draw them…

I’m not okay

I’ll never be okay

but seriously, how often do you see a male main character- much less a main character of a shonen- be genuinely disappointed and angry with himself because he wasn’t sensitive and perceptive enough about a woman’s feelings? Not in a “because she’s mad now” way, but in a “I should have been there for her” way.

AND ACTUALLY CHANGE AS A RESULT OF THAT AND BECOME MORE SENSITIVE AND HONEST IN THE FUTURE?

not a hell of a lot.

It makes me want to cry because people focus on the fact that females get written so poorly because females don’t appear as much or they don’t have added depth but it’s really similar for males now too and not for the same reasons.

We as a society have run into an issue where the males that get more screen time become devalued as well and time and time again you rarely see a large amount of depth in the male characters that are written anymore because they’ve been written so much people just add a few attributes to a male and boom they have a character, nobody really takes the time to add depth anymore and growing pains and let’s us see what it’s really like to be a male in society

Yet a woman who wrote a story about two brothers that featured men far more prominently than women wrote  all of these men to perfection and added depth and realism to their development.

Even the women had a lot of development.

A woman did that, she showed us what it was really like for men like Ed who have short tempers and are very opinionated and showed us his depth and emotion.

How sad and amazing is that?

Feminisim is a fight for equality and Arakawa helped the male side of the fight exponentially by writing FMA.

It’s ok for boys to be emotional because they are, boys aren’t emotionless, they go through a lot of the same abusive issues Edward and Al went through, it’s ok to cry, it’s ok to be human.

Thank you Arakawa for opening my eyes and letting me really see what the male side of things is really like because as a female we don’t get to see that kind of depth for our male characters, people write males for females as though they’re strong and minimize their flaws and don’t give them emotion but as a female I want to get attached to a flawed male character and to this day Edward and Al are still my boys.

And then you remember that the head writer also wrote Angel Cop and Violence Jack.

No. The head writerof this scene was Hiromu Arakawa, creator of the Fullmetal Alchemist manga, and who has nothing to do with either of those series.

This is from Fullmetal: Alchemist Brotherhood, which very closely adapted the manga. This is almost word for word a scene that happened in the manga.

Sho Aikawa, the person behind the script 2003 Fullmetal Alchemist anime adaptation is the one behind  the script of Angel Cop. Arakawa had little to do with the 2003 series other than it was loosely based on her manga and she helped with the initial production. The 2003 series did not contain this scene, or this manner of character development for Ed.

 Don’t spread misinformation. I have to suspect you are either actively trying to erase the actual author of this scene or you just…didn’t read the additional post you reblogged this from because it said several times that a woman wrote this and her name was Arakawa.

Edit: Looking up his name, Aikawa and Arakawa are very similar looking so it might have been an honest mistake if you didn’t know Sho Aikawa’s gender. Still, please verify in the future.

Oh shit, my mind saw a name that began with an ‘a’ and ended in a ‘wa’ and thought “Aikawa, sure.”

It helps that I didn’t see Brotherhood all the way through and only vaguely remember the original, so I didn’t immediately pick up on the art style.

Welp, sorry about that. Given that I’m buried in research for a panel I’m putting together on Gainax right now, spreading disinformation is the absolute last thing on my agenda :/

Pretty convinced this will still be one of the best animes ever even when I am an old lady. For all of the above reasons. I just love it so much. T__T;

Always reblog the Real Life Disney Prince. Pay attention boys, this is how it’s done.

I’ve always liked Tom Hiddleston but this just made me fall in love with him

I’m not gonna lie, my eyes got a little blurry.

His parents should write a book about parenting, cuz I wanna know whether they hired a sorcerer to make sure their child comes out right.

FOREVER REBLOG

Always reblog

If this is back to my dash, I have to reblog it again. 

"I think of negative feelings like clouds passing in front of the sun" - Tom Hiddleston (paraphrased)

Oh my god, okay I am having the worst day and sitting in a coffee shop scrolling through tumblr like a loser and after like 12 whole pages of “nope, still hate my life” this avalanche of Tom Hiddleston being amazing totally made me smile like an idiot for the whole post. :P Must reblog.

Ugh why does Tom Hiddleston always make everything all better???

Why is it not helpful to say “not all men are like that”? For lots of reasons. For one, women know this. They already know not every man is a rapist, or a murderer, or violent. They don’t need you to tell them.

Second, it’s defensive. When people are defensive, they aren’t listening to the other person; they’re busy thinking of ways to defend themselves. I watched this happen on Twitter, over and again.

Third, the people saying it aren’t furthering the conversation, they’re sidetracking it. The discussion isn’t about the men who aren’t a problem. (Though, I’ll note, it can be. I’ll get back to that.) Instead of being defensive and distracting from the topic at hand, try staying quiet for a while and actually listening to what the thousands upon thousands of women discussing this are saying.

Fourth—and this is important, so listen carefully—when a woman is walking down the street, or on a blind date, or, yes, in an elevator alone, she doesn’t know which group you’re in. You might be the potential best guy ever in the history of history, but there’s no way for her to know that. A fraction of men out there are most definitely not in that group. Which are you? Inside your head you know, but outside your head it’s impossible to.

This is the reality women deal with all the time.
