" it’s just a joke, relax! "
" you’re all overreacting! "
this is someone’s fucking daughter.
if you think anything about this is ok because it’s ” just a joke ” you’re a seriously disgusting individual.
twitter normalizing pedophilia
Im gonna fucking throw up
thats a child….. she literally look 5
This is the most disgusting thing i seen in a while she look 5 how can u be attracted to and/or joke about doin bad things with her. How is this funny.
Not even 5. Try 3 or 4 y’all. THIS IS A BABY. This is not funny in any way. This is pedophilia. This little girl probably can’t even spell her name and she is being exploited for twitter “jokes”. THIS IS FUCKING SICK. If you’re active on twitter, please report this shit if you see it. This is unacceptable.
besides her being someone’s daughter, she is simply someone; a human being who should be respected.
But back on to the subject of her being someone’s daughter. Because it’s her parents who are far more likely to find this than her (considering she is so young). Imagine how they will now feel taking their young, innocent, little girl put anywhere. Their baby who they assume can just be a child when and as she wants to be. They have that ripped from them.
Suddenly they’re apprehensive about taking her to the park. Keep one parent home with her when the other goes shopping, when she used to go with them and pick out her cereal or maybe a treat. They’re up at the school doors or trying to come right to her classroom when before she could walk to the six foot from school to the car alone (assuming she’s 8 not 5). They won’t take as many photos of her now when before her favourite thing was to dress in her pretty dresses and pose for Mommy. They are protective, overly so, and eventually the little girl comes to wonder what she did wrong. Because she’s only young and this seems like a punishment.
This makes me so fucking sick and angry
best of “she wears short skirts”
Because if it is true, what they’ve done is taken a major POV chapter female character from the books and erased her and given her role to a male FOR LITERALLY NO REASON. WHAT IS THE REASON? WHY ARE THEY DOING THIS? HOW DOES IT BENEFIT THE SHOW AND THE STORY TO TAKE AWAY ARIANNE’S STORY AND GIVE IT TO A DUDE? THERE IS NO REASON THERE’S NOT ONE REASON
and like if that wasn’t bad enough, so much of the point of bringing in Dorne and the Dornish characters is to show how differently they view and treat women within the medieval hell that is Westeros. It’s the only kingdom that doesn’t practice primogeniture and has a history of female rulers (for example, Doran and Oberyn’s mother, not their father, ruled in Dorne. BUT WHEN THEY THREW A THROWAWAY REFERENCE TO DORNE’S PREVIOUS RULER IN THE SHOW, THEY CHANGED IT TO A MAN LIKE LMAO WOW D&D DID WOULD IT REALLY FUCKING KILL YOU TO MENTION A RULING PRINCESS DON’T LET THE DOOR HIT YOUR BASIC ASS ON THE WAY OUT). The whole fucking kingdom was founded by a woman. It serves as a way to show that the misogyny is Westeros is not the norm, but a choice and that it’s not like that everywhere. It’s easy for the reader to be like ‘okay, this is a medieval-based world, of course women aren’t going to rule’, but Dorne just existing the way it does throws that completely out of the window and it’s REALLY IMPORTANT.
And like a concept so central to the asoiaf series is shining a light on how misogynistic the fantasy genre itself often is, how female characters are underdeveloped or token ‘sorceress’ villains or two-dimensional love interests. It shows through example how authors have the choice to write dynamic roles for women in a fantasy setting but just choose not to and blame it on the standard within their world? like YOU WROTE THIS WORLD. YOU INVENTED IT. YOU HAVE MADE UP THE CUSTOMS AND TRADITIONS OF THIS WORLD AND WILLINGLY CHOSEN TO NOT INCLUDE WOMEN IN THAT OR SHOW HOW THEY CAN STILL HAVE STORYLINES AND CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT IN A SETTING THAT SUFFOCATES THEM
And like by choosing FOR NO REASON (!!!!!!!!!!!!) to TAKE AWAY a female character like Arianne - who is sexual, who owns her sexuality, who uses it as a weapon, who was raised to rule, who is confident in her power, who is in cahoots with her girl gang cousins (who are all powerful in their own ways, who all identify their femininity differently and use it as a tool differently) to STAGE A COUP AND PUT A FEMALE ON A THRONE OF THE ENTIRE SEVEN KINGDOMS BY USING THE VERY LAWS OF DORNE THAT GIVE HER POWER is honestly just so fucking offensive. And stupid. And throwing one of the key tenets of the series back in its face probably because they’ve seen how ”’badass”’ people think Oberyn was and want another ”’badass”’ Dornish character just like him and of course that can’t be a woman!! No woman cool here!! Tough boy make show better!! Go jump off a cliff.
if you think camp jupiter can take down camp half-blood in a landslide, then i wonder how much you actually know about roman legions? or warfare in general? or history?
because guerrilla warfare was a weak point for them (and many other organized armies) like
the romans never defeated the picts for one. (picts being an ancient tribe in scotland and one of the reasons they built hadrian’s wall.) the celts and germanic tribes were among the people romans hated most because they were a pain to fight. and please look towards the disastrous battle of teutoburg forest. you know. in the woods. the woods that camp half-blood is surrounded by. the woods where romans found themselves slaughtered, despite higher numbers.
not saying camp jupiter isn’t a powerful force, because it is; the roman military developed tactics that allowed them to conquer most of the mediterranean. but camp half-blood has the home turf advantage and uses chaos like its own weapon. this works in warfare. lack of super utilitarian structure and training doesn’t mean another force can’t come out victorious. militias and revolutionaries don’t need years of diligent training to strike hard. the greek demigods train in camp, they learn how to fight, even if it’s not the same hardcore levels, and they play dirty. they aren’t like the ancient greeks - their tactics are less rigid.
guerrilla tactics WORK.
the roman legions will need to break form to fight the greeks and while i’m sure they can absolutely still fight one on one, the legion is where their advantage is. the chaos is where the greeks’ advantage is. greater numbers don’t always mean victory.
they’re pretty evenly matched here once the battle gets going.
(though the point is moot because reyna is a hero who will save the day and stand on octavian’s head with the athena parthenos behind her)
#tbh the main reason the empire survived as long as it did#was because of the sheer bloodymindedness of the romans#oh our fleet sank because we suck at boats?#better build another one#even that would have meant nothing if they didn’t have the population to pull from in order to rebuild their armies#BECAUSE THEIR ARMIES KEPT GETTING SLAUGHTERED#roman history is not a series of victories#it’s a series of losses that they keep coming back from#and then came back from less and less as time wore on and they over extended their empire#and started coming up against people (who tomato mentioned) that their disciplined army couldn’t deal with because they didn’t play by the rules#they never even took all of britain#and lost what hold they had on it in the first wave of the disintegration of their empire (via ignitesthestars)
#like even from a history standpoint#there’s a reason guerrilla warfare is used as often as it is#and the greeks have mastered this#roman legions are not infallible#points you in the direction of teutoburg forest#and the decisive german victory#despite the romans having LARGER NUMBERS#and STRICT MILITARY TACTICS#the germans w o n#and it was one of the worse losses in roman military history (via romanitas)
i KNOW i’m just beating a long-dead horse by doing this but for god’s sake disney
fyi only superficial things were changed in the edit (hair, eyelash length, freckles, skin tone) the actual model wasn’t changed at all
to be clear: she photoshopped anna’s hair onto hiro’s mom face. a lot of people in reblogs seem to think that the one on the right is literally anna and trying to find miniscule, non-existant differences… which sort of proves the point? that a picture of a different character can be mistaken for anna so easily with just a hairstyle change and that people will still defend the design choice to the death rather than admit the similarities… sheeesh.
I’m gonna play the devil’s advocate here… So, people are fucking expensive to create and using pre-existing models makes things easier on everyone. Also, if you’ll notice that a lot of people do actually look very similar (not as similar as these two, but still). Typically the differences in a group of people is hair, eyes, skin tone, etc. Disney is under pressure to constantly have films out and if they weren’t it would be different, however they are and with deadlines being so close together and the fact that animated films take 5+ years to make and a lot of fucking money, it will be okay if characters look alike. They all have key characteristics in WHO THEY ARE NOT WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE THAT MAKE THEM SPECIAL. And here I thought that was a common goal.
1. The idea of giant company like Disney using preexisting models for their main characters is not only laughable, but lazy and shameful.
1. Disney has money. They have a LOT of money. They have resources. They have talented people. And they clearly have enough time to create male characters with distinctive characteristics. The exact same should be true for female characters.
3. Oh look the “it doesn’t matter what they look like, it’s their personality that matters” argument. Movies are a VISUAL MEDIUM. Character design is rooted in figuring out who a character is and then basing the design off that. Good design should give an idea of a character’s personality before even watching the movie.
4. Playing the devil’s advocate only works if your argument makes sense and you understand what you’re arguing. Statements excusing Disney from lazy character design only shows your complete lack of understanding in how the animation industry works.
These people obviously haven’t worked in the industry at all. That is not how computer animation works, especially at a highly funded, enormous company. I mean, look at Dreamworks- Even the background Vikings in the latest film vary a lot from model to model and all have tons of character just to view.
Honestly it’s getting to the point that Disney should be ashamed that it needs people to blindly defend their every move.
As for the people blindly defending it, please understand you can still enjoy things and critique them. Understand that as a visual medium, it’s unacceptable to have so many wildly different characters be identical and possibly even have identical models.
This is not people hating on Disney for no reason, this is people holding Disney to a high standard they established themselves and that fans have come to love.

Imagine Cas making a tumblr and seeing one of those ‘things to say during sex’ posts and takes them seriously and as soon as things are getting all hot and heavy with Dean he just leans over and whispers ‘are you feeling it now mr. krabs’ and Dean goes soft and can’t stop laughing and has to stop and Cas doesn’t know what he did wrong
No, I’d say the show does a great job of representing the typical 18-34 male with Larry, with his constant need for validation, attention, and the world to revolve around him.
not to mention Bennet’s quest to prove that he’s a man, Pornstache’s overcompensation that disguises his vulnerability, Healy’s struggle to make positive change that is frustrated by his need to be loved by a woman, and Caputo’s exploration of his desire to control the world around him and whether or not he wants to do that.
men are quite accurately represented in the show, the only issue male viewers seem to have is that these men display the warped nature of man’s dominance, and the idea that their superiority is not perfect and noble is offensive.
