i am a fan of putting things into videogames that upset straight boys
I’m not a misandrist, but if men didn’t want to pay for dinner then they shouldn’t make higher wages just because they’re men.
It’s been more than a week after the con and I still haven’t posted much about it anywhere at all. Over all I had a great time, bar a little drama here and there as there always is with cosplay. Unfortunately though, I had to deal with quite a bit more hate from my fellow con-goers than usual on Saturday while I was dressed as Jane Foster from Thor: the Dark World.
I really liked TDW for reasons I’m not going to fully spell out here, but I felt like they did a better job with the women, particularly Jane, than in the first film. She was clever and funny and still feminine. When the big strong man couldn’t save the day on his own, she fixed it with science. Between that and really liking her Asgardian dress/armour, I decided to cosplay her with my friend Mo as Lady Sif.We knew the movie was only released in late fall, so we kind of expected to still be relevant/interesting on the con floor, and thought maybe we’d meet some other MCU folks for photos or something. What happened was people coming up to me just to tell me how much they hated Jane Foster.
Please read the whole thing and pass it on. Even if you’ve been on the fence about Jane Foster or just don’t care for her con-goers treated a fellow cosplayer like crap because of their own misogyny and how they perceived Jane’s role. This crap has got to stop.
P.S. You look amazing don’t stop cosplaying!
Ooh I’ll try! Don’t be afraid to nag/remind me about it too. I take my anime (too?) seriously; I would want to be in that moment of “absolutely no distractions and I must be able to think clearly on this” sort of thing. I don’t think I’d normally have this problem if I didn’t have Thesis this year. I picked the wrong time to get into DRRR >o<
I hope you’re right as i rather avoid spoilers at all cost. But Izaya’s good at making on my exceptions list…
No you don’t understand, I was proudly deemed an RP slut once in a small group b/c I slept with the most characters in the group. Kinky sex is ideal and I don’t get enough of it in the RP world. Or fanfiction. Or just casual browsing yaoi.
I’m both scared and curious now…It’s sort of like…is going through the scary zone of Izaya’s psychee worth it? I’m leaning towards yes…I’m a curious bastard at times.
At this point in my life I feel yaoi is going to become a way to fuel me.
I feel I really need to before I even proceed. I mean as much as I take pride in what I got out of it in one watch, I know I can’t really complete my processing of all of the characters without at least another watch (since I know everything and can pay attention to other things), and probably a third time for safe measures (and without large gaps/breaks between the episodes).
Thank you! Izaya is just so lovably fascinating I worry I’ll be paying attention to him the most during re-watches. [While also trying to get roommates into this anime haha]
Although I argue with myself I may have to; I mean I want to understand him more than anything, but I already know his mind is probably a scary place too (and should proceed with caution and with the appropriate weapon: pay the eff attention to everything about him…and be ready for any big realization to dawn on myself).
Maybe I should. I’m almost utterly surprised by the lack of it on my dash. hmmm
I’m curious to where everyone will be headed in the novels. My opinions and feelings about Mikado changed a bunch as I went through the anime (but I love that in itself). I’m working on (re)watching DRRR in HD atm (Not a thing I usually care about but…must…look at details…)
I wouldn’t mind reading that at all. I really want to figure him out myself in my head before I go on to other people’s though. Occasionally I’d dabble in conversation with one of my RL friends about him in hopes it would help a bit.
And I know there are some words missing so I wasn’t sure what was being said in the last couple of sentences, if it was important.
