in a healthy, close relationship of any kind, when something upsets you, you need to bring it up. as soon as possible, even. cultivate an environment in which you both can talk about things that upset you, with the utmost attention to everyone’s feelings. it’s a really simple thing to do but it’s a thing i’ve been working on for a while and i’m getting actual nice things happening as a result
SeaWorld, as we know it today, is over. It’s only a matter of time. The company is finished. Here’s why.
1. The SeaWorld brand is now tarnished, at best. Toxic? Likely. The brand represents the torture of whales for an increasing population of concerned citizens. If you love whales (and who doesn’t), you don’t like SeaWorld.
2. Wall Street has turned on SeaWorld. The stock is down over the last year by 45% and $1.6 billion in market cap has evaporated. You can sometimes fight City Hall, but it’s nearly impossible to fight Wall Street. And Wall Street is done with SeaWorld.
That must be so hard for you, as a straight person, to find heterosexual characters to identify with. I am so sorry the fandom has ripped away your last narrow pocket of representation within mainstream media.
I wish those queers and fujoshis would get it through their heads that if they WANT to ship gay couples, then they need to find some canon gay media to accommodate them. Like Brokeback Mountain, the L Words, or Dumbledore. (Just not that guy he was in love with because that guy wasn’t gay.)
I think there might have also been one gay guy in that Kings series. Anyhow, yeah, I totally agree with you. It is sooooo hard to find straight couples on tumblr. If I want to see straight romance I like… have to actually go and just look at the source material 99.999% of the time. : (
The model featured in one of Burger King’s infamously suggestive ads for the BK Super Seven Incher has said the company used her image without her permission. In a statement, the woman said that she was publicly humiliated and calls for people to boycott.
it’s fine to do it. i know people would disagree with me but you’re cosplaying a character. you aren’t doing a racist caricature that you made up, you aren’t trying to appear as japanese, you’re just cosplaying a character who wears a kimono.
yeah that’s pretty much what i was thinking too. I know there’s always going to be someone that disagrees no matter what i’m just..not japanese haha so i don’t know all there is to know about it- and i’m not in the Shinto religion either. i have a vague understanding as to what the magatama means to people but from what i gather, most people have a vague understanding too? at least i know what its called haha thanks Phoenix Wright; you taught me something.
i’ll just leave the post up for a while and see what kind of opinions i get- thanks uwu
so would cosplaying as a character that wears a kimono be cultural appropriation? i personally wouldn’t think so since i would be representing a specific character, not a race but i don’t want to unkowingly contribute to something?
the character also wears a magatama (which originated as just jewelry but gained some significance in the Shinto religion)
