@ all of kpop: why do we never give girl idols the opportunity to choreograph and produce? why does it seem like they arent getting the same training as boy idols? why does it feel like there are girls who want to create music and choreograph dances that just arent getting the opportunities or the attention boys doing the same shit get?
HERE I MADE THIS POST IN CAPSLOCK FOR YOU SO EVERYONE UNDERSTANDS HOW IMPORTANT IT IS:
”@ ALL OF KPOP: WHY DO WE NEVER GIVE GIRL IDOLS THE OPPORTUNITY TO CHOREOGRAPH AND PRODUCE? WHY DOES IT SEEM LIKE THEY ARENT GETTING THE SAME TRAINING AS BOY IDOLS? WHY DOES IT FEEL LIKE THERE ARE GIRLS WHO WANT TO CREATE MUSIC AND CHOREOGRAPH DANCES THAT JUST ARENT GETTING THE OPPORTUNITIES OR THE ATTENTION BOYS DOING THE SAME SHIT GET?”
additional observation: girl idols who aren’t yenny/ha:tfelt get stuck with title tracks like nice body meanwhile their self-composed work gets shunted onto a bside that few of us will hear
even yenny had to battle for the tracks on her self-produced album
^^^ and then when yenny’s songs werent an immediate success you had ppl out there like ‘welp….. shouldve just let the company handle it… this is what she gets for composing her own tracks….’
basically there’s this whole…. just.. condescending attitude towards women attempting to do the same shit male artists have been doing for years and its toxic and sickening.
I think one of the reasons the Harry Potter Epilogue was so poorly received was because the audience was primarily made up of the Millennial generation.
We’ve walked with Harry, Ron and Hermione, through a world that we thought was great but slowly revealed itself to be the opposite. We unpeeled the layers of corruption within the government, we saw cruelty against minorities grow in the past decades, and had media attack us and had teachers tell us that we ‘must not tell lies’. We got angry and frustrated and, like Harry, Ron and Hermione, had to think of a way to fight back. And them winning? That would have been enough to give us hope and leave us satisfied.
But instead. There was skip scene. And suddenly they were all over 30 and happy with their 2.5 children.
And the Millennials were left flailing in the dust.
Because while we recognised and empathised with everything up to that point. But seeing the Golden Trio financially stable and content and married? That was not something our generation could recognise. Because we have no idea if we’re ever going to be able to reach that stage. Not with the world we’re living in right now.
Having Harry, Ron and Hermione stare off into the distance after the battle and wonder about what the future might be would have stuck with us. Hell, have them move into a shitty flat together and try and sort out their lives would have. Have them with screaming nightmares and failed relationships and trying to get jobs in a society that’s falling apart would have. Have them still trying to fix things in that society would have. Because we known Voldemort was just a symptom of the disease of prejudice the Wizarding World.
But don’t push us off with an ‘all was well’. In a world about magic, JK Rowling finally broke our suspension of disbelief by having them all hit middle-class and middle-age contentment and expecting a fanbase of teenagers to accept it.
Also. Since when was ‘don’t worry kids, you’re going to turn out just like your parents’ ever a happy ending? Does our generation even recognise marriage and money and jobs as the fulfillment of life anymore? Does our generation even recognise the Epilogue’s Golden Trio anymore?

Bioware, I love your games. But dipping into online activism against sexual assault when you write that shit into your games constantly (looking at Dragon Age) and in the most uncritical and disgusting manner, usually for cheep and fake emotional motivation bc obviously you can not think of any other things people might experience is more than just ironic.
It is, quite frankly disgusting. This is the company that gave us a “getting gang-raped on your wedding night” Origin, the whole Broodmother storyline and that basically builds “they got assaulted/raped” into characters back stories. On top of that most notably into every bisexual characters background btw…
Really, as much as I support taking action against assault in any way you can - this is something where you should look at yourself first before you wanna make a stand.
I think, on my dash at least, I am the only one actually really excited about Rain in another drama.
He is a quite good actor and Plan B: The Fugitive is probably one of my absolute favourite KDramas ever. Partly because of his super awesome female co-star, but partly because he can do the switch from dead serious to outrageously hilarious in the blink of an eye.
Plus (even though I think aesthetically she fits better with Myungsoo): Krystal Rain is probably one of the most poetic Ship-Names that ever were.
it’s also about the diversity of another sexualitys and nationalitys. Please, do it! In case you don’t know, AAA games are highly marketed games. Sandbox is open world type stuff. It’s hard ot answer some of those because some games are open world but also have a straight narrative, be it Dragon Age or Skyrim. Tekken is a fighter but has a strong storyline.
Some of these questions are complicated though. I do actually try to make characters look like myself, if only to add some level of diversity within the game. Brownest elf possible, go! I do not choose the ones with similar storylines to myself. Do I play as a badass female elven mage because she’s who I want to be? Or because I identify with them, because they’re often marginalized in games?
Maybe. Either way, I’m one of those people that would have loved to be Zelda as a child.
The news that Google and Autism $peaks are teaming up to make a huge genome database makes me feel like a mutant hearing that Stryker, Trask Industries, and Senator Kelly are all teaming up to create a mutant database.
