I remember posting somewhere once in a thread about why girls aren’t exploited in animation anymore where some guy said, “all the disney girls are drawn to be generally attractive, but I don’t think there are any eye-candy men… or are there? Are there any Disney men that lots of girls like?” and I mentioned Roger. Tons of girls replied agreeing with me and the original guy was like “wait, Roger? from 101 Dalmatians? What’s attractive about him, he’s tall and lanky and has a big nose, he isn’t muscley at all! Wouldn’t you all prefer Gaston or something? Or do you girls think his big nose is indicative of something else?” and I was like “no, you idiot, he’s a silly, goofy guy who likes animals and can play a bunch of instruments, that’s why he’s attractive. What’s the matter with you? Gaston, seriously?”
This is why we need more girls in animation. And more guys like Roger apparently.
This is why I laugh my ass of whenever dudes talk about how men are “objectified” by the media too. Because 9 times out of 10, what men think is “women objectifying men” are characters like Gaston.
And Gaston is NOT a woman-driven fantasy. Gaston is a male wish fulfillment fantasy. Gaston is not what women want, he is what men want to be. He is hyper-masculinity to an extreme degree, dripping with sexism and testosterone. The fact that men think that Gaston is what women want says an awful lot about those men.
While I don’t want to generalize, female fans tend to prefer a very different kind of male hero. We like the Rogers, the Milos, the Hercules. Genuinely kind, often awkward men who are sometimes vulnerable and respectful to women.
Yes, this is a generalization. I own up to that. But I think it’s important to remember that there is often VERY big difference between what MEN want to be and what women WANT in our media.
Reblogging this again because fucking this. And hell, even the muscley dudes (see: Khal Drogo, Hercules, Thor, Captain America) are loved, not because they are muscley, but because they are sweet and loving and adorable. We love Thor because his mispronounces “Hubble” as “Hooble,” not because of what he can do with a hammer.
Reblogging for the awesome comments.

Yoooooo, this looks really scammy and here’s why:
- This guy’s blog is a whopping two weeks old.
- He hasn’t made very many posts, and even fewer of them are ‘personal’- that’s not to say that everyone should put personal stuff up on their blog if they don’t want to, but there’s no indication that this guy is actually who he says he is.
- Neither the post nor the campaign tells you anything about what exactly is being made or who is making it- all the language is tremendously vague.
- He’s using Indiegogo’s Flexible Funding option (as opposed to Fixed Funding), which means that even if the project fails, he gets to keep all your money.
I’m all for the Animal Crossing community getting together to make cool stuff, but until these issues are resolved, this is looking like a no-go for me.

My questions to you! Anyone can answer.
Questions from shingeki-no-fair
1. Favorite fruit?
Oranges ouo or peaches…
2. Favorite Vegetable?
3. Have any pets?
Two cats, a leopard gecko, and 7 Hermit crabs
4. Top 5 favorite anime?
hmm… this is really hard (in no particular order) Free!, Oran Host Club, Sailor Moon, Black Butler, Tenchi Muyo
(I don’t actually like SNK that much >.o Erwin is just hot, K?)
5. What’s the scariest thing?
heights, very tight spaces (like air ducts, not like elevators), being in the water with large things (sunken boats, floating boats, boats lifted out of the water *squirms*) … I have to close my shade everytime I fly into detroit because it’s right on a slightly abandoned harbor that has all kinds of abandoned boats and docks ;o; FREAKS ME OUT, MAN.
6. Favorite video game series?
ANIMAL CROSSING (dur). Pokemanz. Little big planet and mario kart can also be really fun ;u;
7. Favorite kinds of music?
Anything upbeat. I’m really into babymetal and scooter right now.
8. What’s your favorite smell? (kind of an odd question but there’s a strong spaghetti smell near me)
bath and body works dancing waters… *is running out of shower gel and body spray* *sobs*
also, for whatever reason, even though my baby blanket has been with me, and washed, since I left my parents house several years ago, the smell of it still reminds me of home.
9. What’s a pet you wish you could have?
I JUST WANT A FREAKIN DOG. THATS ALL I WANT. *crawls apartments for no pet policy, then remembers that not everyone is a responsible pet owner and it’s probably for the best*
10. Favorite colour?
I tend to like combos over one sepcific color. But electric blue <3 (I like it paired with gunmetal and either orange or lime, or all 4 :) )
11. Tell me something about yourself!
I have a trashbag of cat litter that needs to go out to the trash but it’s too heavy and it’s currently triple bagged after ripping multiple times. I’m still trying to come up with a plan on how to get the cat litter to the dumpster without the bag ripping. (I can barely lift it off the ground, let alone walk it around the building)
