This whole time, and I never knew that past Celestia was drawn in fanart with the pink mane because of that opening animation to episode 1.

It’s not even good intention, it’s pretty clear that FCKH8 is 110% for the profit. They’re dressed as a company with good intentions for a cause that they have not even tried to understand.
I’d like to see where the guy who made that comment found his sauce, because everywhere I look claims that Six Flags never revealed who played Mr. Six.
Except Lauren’s word doesn’t really mean shit when it comes to canon anymore.
Lauren also said there would only be 2 alicorns.
Wow really, who cares?
You know it’s bad when even the people on tumblr think their tactics are overly aggressive and tacky.
Bringing up as many examples as possible us unnecessary and just pads out the video. She needed to only bring up several examples to prove that it’s a trend instead of spending the whole 25 minutes calling games out that use this trend.
And yes, as I said in my comment, she does bring up the some of the points I said she should discuss more, but she barely scratches the surface of it and only talks about it for maybe 2 minutes out of the whole god damn video and doesn’t go into very much depth into anything. The video overall just feels very shallow to me when it could have been so much more.
Interesting, I’ll have to look into that.
Man, this whole thing is just giving me bad vibes.
First off, the overly aggressive and tacky nature of the whole brand leaves a bad taste in my mouth, so there’s a fantastic start.
Second, this is one of those things that only really looks good on paper. At first I thought “Wow, sending coloring books about gay parents to Russian children might be very helpful and informative for the youth of that country”. Then the more I think about it, and the more I see the pages that are actually in this book, the more I am seeing that this is a terrible idea. For one thing I highly doubt these coloring books will get past the Russian post office once they know what is being sent. But let’s say it gets to the houses it was addressed to, the parent will most likely be the first to open the package and see the contents and they will most likely throw it away (or maybe even report it to authorities) before the kid even realizes the book even exists. Going further, let’s say that the parent decided it would be a good idea to give the coloring book to their child, thus exposing the child to gay propaganda (and oh boy, is this propaganda in the worst way) well now the parent broke the law and the family is probably now an enemy of the state. So if that’s what FCKH8 wanted to accomplish then by all means they should carry on.
I’m actually very interested where you learned all those things about FCKH8, if you wouldn’t mind linking to any stories about it.
You know, Sarkeesian has all the opportunity in the world to make great arguments and debates regarding feminism in the media, but she wastes these opportunities completely. She instead decides to state something that could be deemed sexist about a piece of media (damsels are too common, women are used too often as a plot point, too many female characters are just a male character that’s pink and has a bow, etc. etc.), brings up as many examples as she can to prove her point (even when it’s not necessary and just wastes time), and then just rinses and repeats for 20+ minutes, ultimately resulting in a huge waste of time. I watched the whole video, and I honestly can’t tell you the difference between the beginning of the video and the end because the whole video is just listing characters that have female counterparts in frilly pink bows. She could instead discuss what this says about us as a culture (which she admittedly does in the “smurfette principle” part of the video by quoting another feminist), talk about the ways media can and should change (how it affects generations young and old, how this affects the audience being drawn in, etc.) and she could also condense the video a little so that she doesn’t just talk in circles with herself.
Also, she does not need to make up a new name for Distaff Counterpart
I love this artist too much for words
The subject of the shirt aside, just about every design choice put into this shirt is 100% wrong. Like seriously, it looks like she’s just in a hand-me-down shirt.
“age no higher than 23”
Whut? Dude, get off that high horse.
That reminds me of a dream I had last night where I ran away from a shiny marill
I cried for days.
….. We all have too much time on our hands.
Just look at how overly hyped Youtube is, it’s adorable!
My personal experiences with internet radio have been pretty mediocre, I feel like I get the most satisfaction from my 80s and 90s radio stations
My car has 10 radio presets and 7 of those are set to stations that focus on music before the 2000s. Maybe you should look a little harder.
When I went to their concert last week the shirts were like $10 cheaper than that
What’s up with that, yo?
