No. 169 - “Fedora Enlightenment” 

The guys gets some unwanted advice on the art of women while at the bookstore. This is certainly a No Fedora/Brony Flex Zone indeed.

Ha! Wow! Run!

So a healthy expression of masculinity is beating the shit out of a guy for having a differing ideology?  Got it.

Tadokoro overcame eating problems and became proud of his body and a successful athlete all while being fat. do you understand how important that is to young people who hate their bodies, hate their fat, have eating disorders,…

Waiiit wait wait wait wait wait… hold on one damn minute.  Is someone out there trying to use an anime as an example of how actual athleticism works in the real world?  

This cannot be real.  This has to be a troll.  Since when has anime been a good example of anything realistic ever?

At least source an athlete that actually exists if you want to try and pull that being overweight has nothing to do with athletic ability.  Ever watch the Olympics?  There’s a funny thing that happens when someone overweight starts running, really training their bodies, I bet you’d never guess what it is if you really are taking an anime that seriously.

Skelita’s outfit isn’t finished, but it’s still a nice photo of the progress so far.

I know my crappy pics don’t fully illustrate my point
I’m just sick of going to movies or reading comics and out of the infinite possibilities out there for aliens, male aliens are the only ones who ever have any sort of variety

breathtaking and timeless

I was going to start listing off the reams of genderless, third gender, and unclassifiable aliens I’ve seen in Star Trek, Stargate, the Cthulhu mythos, Farscape, Star Wars, etc, etc, etc, but you know what?  I’m not going to bother.  If this is something you’re on about, little old me isn’t going to change your mind.  So-called ‘non-binary aliens’ have a huge part in popular culture from the Hutt family to the great Cthulhu, and if feeling oppressed and wanting to ignore that is something that makes you feel better about yourself, go for it.

P.S. Quite possibly the most famous aliens of all, the Xenomorphs of Aliens?  Female.  Not a boob in sight.

If you actually read the first link, you’ll see a rebuttal from the author explaining how the accusation of him being pro-life is bullshit.

but they kept the servents black alright this is one of the ugliest things i’ve ever seen in my life



I am not sure I have ever seen a better use of that reaction gif.

Fuck Ridley Scott. 

Uuuuugh. This movie is going to be a trainwreck.

Totally not like the appearance of the pre-Ptolemic rulers is completely unclear or anything.  Look it up; scholars arguing that the cosmetic facial features of surviving art have been overruled by forensic study of remains indicating European or Middle Eastern origins, not further south.  But nobody saying they have the answer 100% no doubt is being completely honest.
Everyone needs to calm the fuck down about this, there are so many clear-cut examples of white-washing and racism out there to get mad about, not Ridley Scott’s racial casting choices in a period of history where the race of those portrayed is in question.  But very unlikely to be black, like their servants would be more likely to be, not because darker-skinned people were inferior, but because of the aesthetics of the period.  
I’m starting to get annoyed about Tumblr thinking they are experts on Ancient Egyptian morphology.  It’s like everybody wants to be angry.  Would it be nice if they had hired Middle Eastern actors, instead?  Yes.  Is this some evil and completely contrived crime of a white dude completely misrepresenting the period?  No.

scholars are arguing about what their appearance wasbetter make the rulers exclusively white. B^Usorry shanks I disagree with you on this one. Just because scholars aren’t sure that those rulers weren’t black doesnt make them being exclusively white while having the servants stay black any more reasonable.

They are not just not sure if they were black or not; the theory that the rulers were black has been discounted repeatedly.  Black-skinned peoples, when they were referenced in surviving texts (as skin colour was much less important to them throughout the culture’s history), were described as foreigners.  The ruling families were described as golden, a description of Middle Eastern or African Caucasoid bloodlines.   The skull structure of examined mummies is inconclusive as to specific genetics, probably being a mix over the years.  So yeah, not white, but definitely not black.  The only people that continue to argue that they were ever black are people pushing a social agenda and ignoring the science.

What about, well, not white people? What about other people of color? or heck, even racially ambiguous people instead of just well we dont know WHITeE
ETA: sorry i hit post too soon
my point is that
no matter how you turn it
the reason they cast them hwite is probably not because scholars arent sure what skin color those rulers had.
The reason most likely is that important characters are “supposed” to be white for some dumb reason


tbh I think they picked white actors so Ridley Scott could put Sigourney Weaver in something again.  Even so, Ben Kingsley is hardly white, and most of the cast, now that I look at the list, aren’t white, either.  Armenian, Jewish (obviously), Arab, etc.
