new sailor moon anime is making dudebros piss and moan and it isn’t even out yet. I’m so proud.
how is that pissing and moaning? they’re rightfully pointing out that you can’t gender a fucking anime
It’s not gendering an anime to point out it was made for women and the majority of the consumers are women. Sailor Moon DID capture the hearts of girls everywhere. It isn’t like there’s a footnote that says “BUT NO BOY HEARTS WERE CAPTURED”
It means a whole fucking lot to a lot of girls because it is rare to get a superhero that is aimed to empower them. Naoko Takeuchi said she made Sailor Moon for girls, to empower girls. She has said this. That was her goal. She wanted to reach girls. You have a problem with that, and the advertisements acknowledging this was the aim of Sailor Moon, that’s really fucking sad.
seriously how is anyone surprised by this.
Whenever dudebros see one thing in this world not aimed towards them, they piss and moan about their balls shriveling up. number one, balls /=/ being a guy. Number 2- go watch the thousands of other things FOR YOU.
In America, you have plenty. Women aren’t considered an audience worth drawing in. Media studies have shown executives often only target men and figure women don’t need to be targeted bc they’ve been forced to watch shit aimed at men, to put up with male aimed fanservice, their whole lives. They will come with the dudes. They CANCELED superhero cartoons recently using the fact it was too popular with the female viewership instead of the male viewership. Girls don’t often get stuff for them. Disney princesses (which are currently avoiding putting the name of female characters in the movie titles so boys will go see them). my little pony, which gets a bunch of dudes taking it over, making porn and actually making it uncomfortable for little girls to attend it.Definitely not fucking superheroes (say Wonder Woman and NOT SINCE THE 1970S notice how she doesn’t have a movie or a cartoon and her comic panders towards dudes).
So when I see American dudes feeling put upon that Japanese media aims some stuff towards girls? zero sympathy.
Aiming towards girls is what made Sailor Moon what it is.
I feel intense pity for men who can’t handle being put second ever. This is not made for you. You can still enjoy it. Just try to resist the urge not to be catered to or put first in every series you watch.
Also, Black Widow accomplished all of it without being a billionaire.
And without being a moody-ass shit.
Everyone needs to remind themselves of this once in a while because this actually happened and it was perfect.
I watch this like once a month to cheer me up.
Ever wonder what it’s like to be an actor or actress of color? This perfectly sums it up.

Imagine if Sirius could have raised Harry and when he sent a howler to him in his second year for driving the car to school.

And Remus in the background “SIRIUS NO.”
but remus ruins it by sounding really amused
then sirius is like IF YOU WANT TO TAKE THE BIKE NEXT TIME and Remus claps a hand over his mouth
I can’t wait for when Dylan decides to leave the show cause Jeff will probably write him off by turning him into some immortal god who ascends into the sky to watch over and protect his friends, but who can return any time, and his friends will mourn him for 3 seasons and he’ll still be ambiguously bi
