So there was this outrage against the depiction of rape in the comic, Kick Ass 2. Enough so that the movie adaptation had the scene changed. This is a series known for its brutal violence which includes murders. Why is murder not as controversial as rape?
Trigger warning for any of my followers. Just scroll away if you have to.
Because murder has no immediate survivors who have to suffer through the experience of being brutalized and rape survivors do? Because there is a HUGE culture around rape and how the victim somehow led to their rape, but nobody really accuses a murder victim of being sooo easy to kill or that they were asking for it. Because it’s used so dismissively. Because there’s more evidence of a murder, but most rape goes unreported.
Like, seriously Anon? And you must be seriously cowardly and expecting some backlash since you are on Anonymous.
Also, that rape scene you spoke of? Just another attempt for Millar to be OMG SO EDGY LOOK RED MIST MOTHER FUCKER JUST RAPED A GIRL.
No. It’s not edgy. It’s not dark. This happens too frequently.
Ever since last night I’ve been getting a lot of questions about my brass fingernails. First of all. NO, they are not prosthesis. i have them for a specific reason.
Here’s what they look like:
HERE’s is the reason:
I bite my nails all the time. constantly, idly, without thinking.
If you’re like me, and love giving back scratches, then having no nails is a problem:
Here’s how chose to fix this problem:
Shoot bullet, collect casing.
The bullets have a taper inside. we will want the broader side of the taper to be outward on our nails, and the thinner side against the rear of the nail so there is no jutting up of material when they are glued on. Here’s what that taper looks like, one cylinder is flipped over to show how thick it is at the base:
clip, bend, and trim into a nail shape:
sand for a fine (BUT NOT CUTTING SHARP) edge on the front and smooth edges.
Glue with Krazy glue, it’s the best.
it’ll dry quick. NOW TRY BACK SCRATCHES. LOOK AT THIS DIFFERENCE.
Amazing. the nails will stay on for about a week at a time before working themselves loose, when that happens just scrape the glue off and reapply.
Unless you happen to have reached into the closet and snagged it on your shelves and broke the nail off on your pinky cuz holy god that hurt. reapply anyways.
Also these work as screwdrivers, knives and various other multi-tools at the tip of your finger, so that’s pretty rad. I don’t know how odd i should feel about having done this, but i must say; it’s handy as hell and really fun to have nails again.
OH, also you can shine them with “brasso” or something but screw that, I’ve tried that and they get mirror bright and really annoyingly shiny. not my thing.
Oh my gosh, you'd be an AMAZING Anna!! I loved Frozen! Are you going to post progress pics? I can't wait to see what you make! :)
You want progress pics?
OH. I’LL GIVE YOU PROGRESS PICS. MUAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA
Mittens from scratch!
Wow. Very embroidery. Much bodice. So stitch.
The skirt! This is when I was pinning the pleats and about to make the waist band and put in the zipper.
Very cape much warm
Test run for Anna’s makeup/hair! I need to trim my bangs, hence my hand holding my head to try and put them in the right place. And the turtleneck will become her blouse because it was only 3 dolllllarrrrs and that’s cheaper than making it from scraaaatch.
I have a cold and I’m curled up with some pasta and some Gordon Ramsay, right now, and if anyone wants to send along a message or a question or a thought or anything like that, I’d be happy to respond!
"I’m cosplaying characters I don’t like, from shows I don’t watch, because of the physical resemblance." - male cosplayer
Why?? :( I only dress as characters I love, from shows, books, movies & video games that I enjoy. Doesn’t matter if I physically look like them or not….
Of course there’s nothing wrong with cosplaying characters you look like. I agree with you, but my post was not about that. This person is literally letting himself be pigeonholed by his appearance, not growing to love a character he happens to look like. Those are two very different things.
When someone says they don’t like the characters they spent so much time, money and effort to look like, it makes me really sad. When they admit that they’re afraid to try to cosplay a character they love but that they DON’T look like, because of bullying, it makes me want to punch something. This is especially the case for fans who have less than 5% of the representation that other fans have. When almost NONE of the characters you love look like you, what are you supposed to do?
Make your own version. Be that character and have fun doing it. Don’t be afraid to put a part of yourself into a fandom that doesn’t seem to reflect its actual fans yet. Someday it will.
*nod* Gotcha, okay. I’m definitely on the same page. Was just responding to that quote - the way I read the reaction I was like “what? I do that all the time.” LOL.
And I also believe that someday our fandoms will truly represent all of us. We’re on our way. Lots more to do yet, but we’re on our way.
