does anyone even need to say anything more about israel?
You bet your sweet ass if China or Iran was doing this reporters would be able to find the word “sterilization,” which is conspicuously absent here.
If you defend Israel, I don’t need to know you.
FORCED STERILIZATION IS NOT OKAY. Please signal boost so that people realize that forced sterilization wasn’t just something that happened in the US in the ’70s, but that it’s still going on now and it’s eugenics.
Motiga announced their first game today, and I’m pretty psyched! I’m not really into MOBAs, but I’m going to have to try this one. Mostly because it’s gorgeous, and partly because the twist they’ve put in actually makes it look interesting to me.
Pretty terrible gifs, but eh. EHH. I don’t care. Fun.
Visit Gigantic's website to read more about the game and sign up for the alpha!
someone tell me wth is up with MOBA games in particular and their track record of most interesting male character designs + blandest safest female character designs ever
Steven Universe keeps up being as ew as it began?
*This total preference creator-pet-like role Pearl gets, the only can-be-read-as-white gem.
*Should I feel for Pearl because she wants literally ALL Steven’s admiration to herself instead of ALL OF THEM?
*Is this the whole voice role of Nicki Minaj we got excited over? Pathetic.
*The fact that two black-coded characters together form a beast, a gorilla-like being. A double black body is a beast in appearance and mind. Grace and intelligence is added by a white-coded body.
*The fact this white-coded gem beats up the double black women gem because brains is better than brawl? You had to dismiss brawl as a weaker strength instead of a different strength? So elitists nerds can feel better?
*Both the black bodies lie there, beat up by mighty-whity and she celebrates much to their pain and annoyance and Garnet said they deserve it because they were wrong. Fuck off.
I am not even beginning about how they keep destroying their cultural heritage without making anyone, even themselves, care one bit. What a mess of writing.
This is a gross show and I hate you all for acting like it is WOC-positivy and ignoring at least the colorism going on, for acting like it is cute, for acting like it is any good. Why are you all usually so good at seeing stuff like this but now leave me hurt after promising me nice things?
Stephen Universe is one of those peripheral fandoms for me I see it reblogged a lot but rarely, if ever, watch an episode. This post made me go ahead and watch the episode, and then look up the episode in which the other two gems fuse (to make Opal I guess), and yes, I have to agree with this criticism that having the two black-coded gems fuse to make a ravaging monster with no control and having the white-coded one in the mix makes for a graceful giant in total control is racist. Especially attributing brains and self-control and delicacy to the white-coded gem is all kinds of racist.
That, and Pearl was extremely gross about how Garnet and Amethyst chose to dance. In both episodes, she treated it as repulsive to her. In the latest episode, she literally tried to keep Steven from watching them dance as if she found it inappropriate.With all the discussion I have seen about black dance styles and how they are treated by white people, I am surprised this hasn’t been pointed out and criticized. If this kind of narrative tends to run through the show without any kind of awareness, I can definitely understand the OP’s frustration with it and with fans being uncritical about it.
i got real hype when i saw they were having a sugilite fusion episode and then i watched the whole thing and it doesn’t really make sense at all to me how they made her so violent and hyper-aggressive too
it just feels like they did amethyst’s and garnet’s personalities a huge injustice by throwing away all their positive aspects to make this awful monster for pearl to fight
AAAAND THERE’S DANDY
while Midas regrets her greed digging her deeper and deeper into a life of crime, Dandy doesn’t plan on slowing down any time soon. she’s a hardcore hedonist out for a good time and isn’t going to let the law or dragons or anything else get in her way.
she’s a fair weather friend - she’ll tag along if you’re out to have a good time and take off when the water gets too hot (as Midas knows too well by now) - and she expects you to expect that. anyone willing to lay someone else’s burdens on their own back is a fool.
