Nicki features twerking girls in her Anaconda video and people call it “pornographic and inappropriate” but Taylor Swift uses black girl’s asses as props and people see it as ~quirky and cute~ I’m so sick of this earth

I'm watching Sailor Moon for the first time and at this point (sailor moon s) the only one of the inner senshi I can really see as straight is Minako, but even then, I don't know. They seem like a bunch of bi girls, but maybe that's just wishful thinking. How do you see them?

They’re all queer. Minako may come off as straight in the anime, but in the manga she is queer as fuck. Here’s how I see them.

Usagi- bi (I was gonna say pan, but actually I do think she finds different things attractive in men, women and inbetween) and potentially eventually polyamorous

Rei- open homoromantic asexual in the manga and PGSM and probably Crystal, closeted (but will eventually come out) lesbian in the 90s anime

Ami- biromantic ace (or maybe just bi- hard to say without more evidence)

Mako- bi- tends to favor boys, but when she crushes on a girl, she crushes hard (see: Ami and Haruka)

Minako- pansexual

Haruka and Michiru- lesbian space princesses

Setsuna- bi- equal level crush on Serenity and Endymion

Hotaru- lesbian

Chibiusa- bi like mama

Why do you think that they are ALL queer…?

How is Usagi bi? She isn’t in love with Haruka or Seiya (and even doesn’t know that Seiya is a girl until pretty late in the 90’s anime).
Rei has something close to a relationship with a man in the old anime (not saying anything about the other stuff…).
How do you get Ami’s vibes…? From where…? And how is she romnatically connected to Makoto?
Also I don’t think that admiring a woman (what you count as a “crush”) determines one sexuality (Makoto’s admiration for Haruka).
Why is Minako pansexual? (In the manga she has something for Rei, in the old anime she’s into boys - or do you consider her crush on Yaten as evidence?)
Setsuna has a crush on Endymion - that one’s true. But she just respects her queen… That doesn’t count as a crush.
Why is Hotaru a lesbian? Because she is close to Chibiusa…? Is that also the reason why you count Chibiusa as bisexual? Being close to a person also doesn’t determine your sexuality…


I don’t think that making people more queer than they are is better than making queer people heterosexual…

the better question is, why the fuck do you care about my headcanons? Do not follow my blog if you’re going to bother me with your heteronormative bullshit.

and you’re right, Usagi is so completely straight, there is no evidence she’s bi.

She completely platonically gets off on lingerie clad friends groping her breast

image

Minako is doing some really heteorsexual boob groping in her most heterosexual outfit too. 

True, Usagi is known for going on buses specifically to check out hot girls, then getting hearts in her eyes and following them off the bus bc in her words “she’s so pretty”

image

How on earth could anyone read that as queer?

image

Note the official translation had her saying “I’ll forgive anything if it’s a pretty girl” or “I’ll do anything a pretty girl tells me to” something that people would be JUST SILLY to think is a sign Usagi is attracted to pretty girls.

And there was totally never the slightest sign she was attracted to Haruka

image

how heterosexually her heart pounds and she swoons slightly as she prepares for haruka to kiss her, offering no resistance.

image

Usagi completely heterosexually had a dream about Haruka kissing her after it happened and woke up flushed and feeling like she’d cheated on Mamoru, which I’m not sure why she’d think that. considering how straight she is.

image

In the anime, she was stalked Haruka for an entire episode and asked if she had a girlfriend in a heterosexual way, was head over heels about the idea of dancing with her in a heterosexual way, and the other girls swooned and were jealous of usagi for dancing with her in a heterosexual way.

And you’re right! Rei had a guy who has a crush on her in the anime! It’s true that she said outright she didn’t have any feelings for him and simply admired his devotion to her in her R episode with Koan, but we all know women aren’t allowed to decide whether they want to be in a relationship with a guy who likes him. If a guy likes them, they are OBLIGATED to return their feelings! And Rei definitely wasn’t know to have really gay moments with Usagi.

image

and it’s not like Usagi ever teased her about possibly being gay, or that she tried to hide an interest in attractive women.

image

I’m such a silly, where do I get this stuff.

And she comes off as so hetero in the manga. Definitely nothing ever implied there.

image

nooooope. Nothing implied with Minako either (ps i did say Minako might come off as straight in the anime- however, since her anime character wasn’t as developed, i tend to fill in gaps with her manga and pgsm characterization.)

definitely they weren’t super queer in PGSM or anything either.

image

image

image

(don’t think being “they type who doesn’t like boys” means Rei isn’t straight. It’s a new type of straightness we haven’t identified but we’re working hard)

And yeah, that Makoto and her platonic fascination with Ami’s butt, that she doesn’t take her eyes off for a full minute

image

And how could I read Chibiusa and Hotaru’s friendship as anything but platonic? I mean, Hotaru totally platonically fondling Chibiusa’s naked chest.

image

totally platonically gazing lovingly into each other’s eyes. while naked. Foreheads touching.image

this completely platonic scene

image

Hotaru may have never shown any interest in boys, but you’re right, i should read her as straight regardless.

how could anyone think that was gay, with that phrasing. Especially since Mamoru watches on and describes it as “giving his daughter away as a bride”. Platonically.

I’m so sorry that I, a silly, stupid queer woman, dared try to read any of these characters as queer. Everyone is straight until proven otherwise, you’re right. You’ve shown me the way with your hetero wisdom.

(guess what? Even if this wasn’t all true? It wouldn’t fucking matter. I can read characters however I want, and no one needs “evidence” they are not straight. Straight should not be the fucking default, and queer people can look for representation and read relationships as romantic or platonic. You can bet if they were het, none of these relationships would be read as platonic. And there is a much evidence for a crush on Serenity for Pluto as there is for Endymion- neither are outright confirmed in the text of the manga, just “admiration”. Naoko says Setsuna has “adulterous” feelings which could refer to BOTH OF THEM (I doubt that’s what she MEANT, but she didn’t say anything concrete, so guess what? I can interpret it as I want). So get the hell out of here with your assumptions).

(Also I read Haruka as genderqueer in the manga. I hope that makes you REALLY upset).

I want to wear this post as a cloak, the Sailor Senshi are all hella queer and I will throw down if you say otherwise

i have rarely seen a smackdown of heteronormative bullshit as thorough as this

My childhood just got better.

I thought I’d make a post summarizing Taylor Swifts video “Shake It Off” for the people who don’t want to give her more hate views on VEVO. Maybe instead of giving her 4,000 angry views on youtube we can just give her my one view and reblog this hella so no one else watches it out of irritable curiosity? 

Anyways the video is basically just her dancing singing an anthem that every White person appropriating another culture says, “The haters gonna hate.” There’s no real content or plot to the video, just a lot of dance shots where she’s being really awkward. It’s actually amazing how someone could really pretend to be so innocent and naive yet still convey a very harmful message.

Above I posted some screen caps of the video and after only watching it once I got all I needed to know.  Already from the beginning of the video you see a hard clash between the dancers. There are the prima ballerina types who are all white women, elegantly leaping and stretching and dancing. Then there are the facelessblack women who are shaking their asses. Yes, faceless, literally every shot of the “twerkers” are only their asses. There’s also other groups of dancers which include some break dancers (which are all brown men,) and contemporary dancers (which is a group of white people and one girl with an afro.) Oh, yes, I forgot the cheerleading group which was all white cheerleaders and one black girl in the back. I just find it hard to believe that they couldn’t have a solid mixed group of people in each category. She pulled a Miley and Iggy and probably said something like “Well I want a more urban feel! But keep the safe ballerinas white!!” Literally the only group that had a saturation of black women was the twerking group. She even had them squat and shake their asses while she crawled through their legs! So edgy! So urban!

This is the problem I have with Taylor Swift. She’s always trying to convey herself as the innocent one who is “man worthy” (as if being man worthy is even important) while slut shaming other women for being sexual, or even just dressing in “short skirts” and “high heels.” All of the sudden now she wants to say, “To hell with the haters I can have as many problematic exes as I want! Now I’m going to be single and edgy! I’m going to shake it off! And to be single and edgy and sexual I have to dance with a bunch of ass shaking black women!  USE A BUNCH OF BLACK WOMEN AS PROPS

Long story story, Taylor Swift is not only a slut shaming misogynist, she’s ignorant and has obviously racist/stereotypical views of brown and black people.

Because why go outside (gasp!) and get involved when you can just like and reblog posts from the comfort of your home.

Because sometimes you’re young, and can’t leave your area, or parents won’t let You get involved. so the only thing you can do is spread the message so someone who can help will see it. 

"Aaaand made a comic to make people feel bad about themselves, when I’m not doing anything either. Gee that was good use of my time." 

holy shit this comic is so pretentious and out of touch with reality, I can’t even begin to imagine what fantasy world the artist lives in where

  1. everyone who wants to go to a protest is physically capable of going to a protest (cool fact: disabled activists exist and while some disabled activists can make it to protests, most can’t. wow. what a concept)
  2. everyone who wants to go to a protest can financially afford taking days off of work, can financially afford the possibility of being arrested for protesting, and can financially afford the possibility of hospitalization / going to the emergency room in the case of police brutality (all very real things for poor people. wow. who knew)
  3. activists are safe from physical danger. activists face not just police brutality but harassment by people opposed to their activism. and that’s not even taking into account the fact that even in activist spaces, women face the threat of sexual harassment, sexual assault, and rape.
  4. where activists can accurately have their stories told to the general public, and can trust that their stories won’t be edited to make them look like awful people

wait that’s not the real world at all. home-bound disabled people exist (hi, I’m one of them), poor people exist (hi again), and women + NB ppl who are incredibly wary of men and the ever-present possibility of assault exist (hi). and that’s not talking about like, specific classes of people who are even more vulnerable to violence (disabled trans women of color to give you an idea) who might not feel safe being at a protest because someone might assault or murder them. you did not think this through at all.

y’know what icyarguments, I don’t doubt that there’s a handful of tumblr activists who don’t take (anti-racist) activism seriously and only reblog things about what’s happening in Ferguson so people don’t call them out on their apathy towards racism. but “tumblr activism” is legit; for a lot of poor folks, disabled folks, and women it’s a safe way to help get information out there. (Safe might be a bit of a stretch - lots of online activists receive tons of harassment and threats.) Protests don’t happen in a vaccuum. People learn about what they fight for not just on the street or in their lives but online. As an example: some women are going to be able to articulate what sexism is just from their lived experience, but others won’t, and a lot of women have found the words to articulate how sexism has hurt them by seeing information on tumblr. So. IDK, you’re kind of being a useless jerk here. Go read a book or something.

And that’s not even touching on your example of a ~worthwhile activism~. I’m not touching that with a ten foot pole.
