???Okay I keep seeing this post on my dashboard with people replying “THANK YOU!!!” as if this powerpoint thing was somehow helpful, or even correct at all.

Yes, I get that you like the anime and want to feel as if there’s nothing morally wrong with it, I did too at first until I realized just how blatantly fucked up it is. Myself, I’m a huge gurren lagann fan and I had high hopes for Kill la kill! But just watching the first episode was enough for me. In the very first god damn episode it shows the kamui ripping off her clothes off-screen as she shouts telling it to stop. This was supposed to be humorous because it was a weird talking suit doing this instead of, you know, a man. Basically just a straight up rape joke. In the first episode! Yet you oh-so-cleverly dodged that entire scene in this presentation of yours and masked over clear and obvious sexual objectification as a “metaphor for puberty” ???

Alright I don’t even have a logical argument to that that’s just stupid as shit. There is no metaphor here, it’s just fanservice, which under ordinary circumstances shouldn’t be all that bad— looking back at gurren lagann, that show also had a lot of fanservice in the form of yoko littner. The main difference being, yoko simply dressed the way she did because she liked to. 

However in kill la kill, Ryuko isn’t wearing the suit because she wants to or likes to be that exposed, I don’t think even yoko would feel comfortable wearing that. It barely even covered her breasts or any part of her really and somehow it “protected her” against the blows of that boxer guy, which I guess you could just contribute it to being “haha, anime man, anime’s weird.” But realistically that’s just… A huge plothole and it’s obviously only meant to be a sexual thing. Can I reiterate that Ryuko is extremely uncomfortable wearing such a revealing outfit and is not doing it of her own volition at all. 

#Rape jokes, extreme over-sexualization and a fanbase that’s completely prepared to come up with a bunch of bullshit excuses for all these blatantly degrading situations. Haha, oh man. I’m glad I didn’t watch this past episode one. I love the animation, the style and everything, it takes me back to gurren lagann….. But all of this? No. I’m seriously disappointed in this anime and as much as I want to enjoy it, I just can’t unless they stop pulling this gross shit.

It’s fine if you like it, I suppose, but at least realize that it’s quite problematic. Don’t make shitty posts like this that baselessly defend something that shouldn’t need defending. Why should you need to validate your own enjoyment of something with posts that mask the reality? That’s what you’re doing here, along with everyone else that’s reblogging it, they’re ignoring the facts just so they can feel as if they’re innocent and not guilty of buying into something that is seriously harmful.

Reblogged for the commentary above. I 100% do not buy the bullshit about it being about puberty. There are a million and one ways they could have constructed a sophisticated metaphor for puberty and this is not one of them. Besides, if it truly is a metaphor for puberty, then the message it’s sending is that the male gaze is inevitable and submitting to it and working with it will make you more powerful, which is completely disgusting because submitting to the male gaze should not be a natural part of being a woman, although unfortunately, it often is (rape culture). And they are not empowering because, as pointed out above, Ryuko is ashamed of her outfit and does not choose to wear it. That is pretty much the opposite of empowerment and you cannot foist the label “empowering” on any old oversexualized female fighting gear just because you want to explain away the blatant sexism it implies, let alone use empowerment as an excuse for this particular outfit. These outfits are SO over the top, SO blatant, SO sexualized that it cannot be anything but really excessive fanservice because it’s gone beyond the point where it could potentially serve a symbolic purpose and into the realms of seriously not giving a fuck about any semblance of realism within the story (if anyone was constructing such an elaborate symbolic purpose for those damn suits, then I would hope that they would construct an appropriate place in the narrative for them as well, and considering the fact that the suits are grossly impractical in literally any way you look at it, I cannot believe that they could have a logical place in the universe’s canon). And beyond that, the rape-y ness of the suit is incredibly inappropriate and honestly, made me really uncomfortable when watching the first episode and contributed to the fact that I am not watching the next. Which sucks, because if the show cut out the rape jokes and made the uniforms a bit less ridiculous, I would be really interested in watching it. 

yeah like fuck the OP who said “don’t let the sexualization keep you from watching this series” when for many women it would be super upsetting and uncomfortable watching this series which is clearly not geared to them - you can like something that is problematic but you need to 1) admit it’s problematic and 2) not shame people for not liking it/watching it for being problematic - you need to RESPECT that

"Top Results"

And this is the THIRD fucking result.

Here I come for inspirational quotes and GIFs of a man who made my childhood.

BUT NO.

NO I CAN’T HAVE THAT AT ALL BECAUSE MISANDRY FUCKING MERMAID HAS TO SAY THIS

NOT TO MENTION “WHY COULDN’T GOD TAKE” UHM UHM UHM ROBIN WILLIAMS COMMITTED SUICIDE

IT WAS NOT JUST HIM DYING

AND YOU’RE WISHING DEATH ON ANOTHER PERSON

INSTEAD OF GRIEVING FOR THIS GUY THAT YOU THINK IS A “GOOD ONE”

I’m done. I tried to be nice and say that MM often makes good posts but this draws the fucking line. I won’t sympathize with tumblr Nazis even if they do make good points and the same goes for tumblr radfems.

DONE.

Wow. Appropriating someone’s death just to push your super edgy 3rd wave feminist bullshit? So cute. So very cute.

Fuck Misandry Mermaid.

Seriously.

I’m not a misandrist, but a few quick questions:

If men can’t even make their own sandwiches, why are they allowed to make bills in congress?

If men can’t control their own sexual urges, why are they allowed to control nations?

If a woman’s legs/shoulders are enough to distract a man, how can we trust them to stay focused on things like open heart surgery or judging a murder trial?

Again not a misandrist, some of my best friends are guys and i’m even dating one.

for the last fucking time representation does not mean shoving in a queer romance. it means acknowledging we fucking exist. it means a girl saying she likes girls. it means a character doing something as simple as checking out their same gender. you don’t have to be in a relationship to be recognized as queer. representation is not and never has been about ‘ships.’ it’s about normality. it’s about existing for a purpose other than a punchline or a god damned ship
