Or watch a cartoon with intelligence and humor, instead of stereotypes and stupid puns?

Submit a new idea, rewrite your favorites, tell us your theories, vote on the worst film of the year.

"a female protagonist in assassin’s creed is historically inaccurate!"

haha yeah because ancient aliens, conspiracies, and a war that has been going on for thousands of years yet still somehow remains secret to the outside world is totally accurate i mean we can have glowing magical objects which kill people and all kinds of stuff but a female with a knife is TOO far buddy TOO INACCURATE and TOOO UNSCIENTIFIC!!!!!!

I really like the idea of Sirius and Regulus being partly Chinese since JKR never specified the ethnicities of all the Black family members and if you’re going to make excuses about it then I don’t wanna hear.

so my animation professor has worked on all of the major disney movies like lion king, little mermaid, aladdin, beauty and the beast etc.

and he was talking about the issues a lot of disney stories have and how the writers kinda just shrugged about them and hoped people wouldnt notice and PEOPLE DID

ACTUAL LITTLE KIDS

like he said one time when they were doing a panel a little girl asked why ariel couldn’t just WRITE ERIC A LETTER TELLING HIM IT WAS HER WHO SAVED HIM B/C SHE SIGNED URSULA’S CONTRACT WHICH MEANS SHE COULD WRITE and all of the animators n writers just skipped over her question

and another time they were questioned about princess and the frog and how charlotte coulda just helped tiana with her restaurant b/c she’s rich and they’re friends so yanno

but the writers just sorta laughed nervously

these stories make me laugh b/c so many people try and say dont pay attention to the issues some disney movies have b/c they’re for little kids and little kids can’t think critically > v >

  ahh yes good times

you people have absolutely no critical thinking skills
one is a disrespectful, extremely inaccurate and highly romanticized and steteotyped ‘interpretation’ of native american imagery, appropriated to serve as a novel, kitschy piece of native culture that for white people to consume and use as they please, while actual native americans are having their culture, languages and land stolen from them.
the other is a fictional comic book character, playing a fictional race of peoples, that is loosely based on norse myth. without Idris playing that role, the entire population of asgard would have been as pale as the driven snow. this is a film meant for a modern, global audience but you want less PoC in it? and if you’re going to argue that it would have been ‘historically accurate’ for all norse gods to be white then you can go throw yourself into a pile of horse shit because the idea that anything in the Thor movies or comics is ‘historically accurate’ is extremely ludicrous.
so you can all stop with the inane comparisons now and go back to eating your mayo and crackers or whatever it is white people do when they’re not screwing over other races.

You people have absolutely no critical thinking critical thinking skills.
One is a disrespectful, extremely inaccurate and highly romanticized ‘interpretation’ of a norse god, appropriated to serve as a novel, kitschy piece of norse culture for Pickers of Cotton to use as entertainment as they please while northern europeans are having their culture, nations and women raped by immigrants. 
The other is a costume made for children to wear on halloween that is loosely based on old American Indian clothing. 
So you can stop with the inane complaining now and go back to eating fried chicken and watermelon or whatever it is black people do when they’re not sponging off of the achievements of other races.  

Don’t you love it when racists prove your point for you and look like absolutely the most deplorable kind of human trash while doing so?

shark lava and boy girl

a bigender superhero and a shark partner literally made of lava

I like how Boygirl doesn’t seem to have any superpower besides being bigender.

If you ride a shark made out of lava you really don’t need any powers do you

Another character that kind of has a fucked up premise

youngbadmanbrown:

is Wonder Woman.

Imagine you’re raised in this utopian, women only warrior society (this part isn’t fucked up) and you’re taught all about how outside of your society which is magically shielded by super-science/magic 

there lies “man’s world.”

Man’s world is just horrible and fucked and violent place you hear stories about and the people who inhabit it and you reach a point growing up where you probably think “okay mom, it’s probably not that bad. Shit I bet men don’t even really exist you’re just fucking with me.”

And then a fucking man shows up on your island. He’s not at all like the ones that you’ve heard about. He’s not some violent monster who wants to ruin everything he touches. He’s a good dude. You decide you want to go see man’s world, you fight for the right to become your peoples champion and ambassador. It’s your job to share with man’s world the wonders of Amazonian society.

You get to man’s world and it’s fucking astounding. There are crazy tall buildings and cars and ice cream and all these different cultures  and music and it’s just fucking mind blowing.

And there are lots of men. They’re walking down the street side by side with women. They aren’t murdering them, they aren’t reducing things to cinders. Obviously all the stories your mother told you were horse shit.

But then you start to pull back the curtain. You hear and see men disrespect women on the street. You go to the mall and wonder why all the mannequins are the same size if all the women clearly aren’t. You see all these magazines telling women what’s wrong with them, what they have to do to please men. That’s when you start wondering what’s up with this world.

You find out women are paid less then men, that no woman has ever been the leader of the United States, you see crime statistics, and you find out that this Steve Trevor, who you really thought was a good person, is an agent of a government that has declared the assaults on female soldiers “occupational hazards.”

Then you realize it’s not just the United States, it’s all over “man’s world.”

It hits you that this place is even worse than all the stories you heard.

And the worst part about it is: the gods that you’ve been raised to worship and fear, the gods that you know fucking exist, don’t want to do shit about it.

Imagine what that would do to you?

I wanna read about that Wonder Woman, the Year One Wonder Woman who’s like jesus in the temple flipping shit over. I wanna read about the Wonder Woman who’s so appalled by the conditions of man’s world she marches into the UN and tells everyone off. The Wonder Woman who meets a crying girl on a street corner, finds out that her boyfriend just laid hands on her and then goes and cuts off his hands.

Writers too often fall back on all that mythology shit as if Medusa and hydras and gorgons are the worst monsters that Diana can fight.

The monsters Wonder Woman should be fighting are the ones her mother told her about as a kid

New details about the young Cree superheroine to be introduced next month in DC Comics’ Justice League United #0, by Jeff Lemire and Mike McKone. Code-named Equinox, Miiyahbin is a 16-year-old from Moose Factory, Ontario, whose power comes from the Earth and changes with the seasons. As revealed in October, the character is inspired in part by Shannen Koostachin, a teenage activist who lobbied the federal government for a new school in Attawapiskat First Nation, on the James Bay Coast. Koostachin died in a car accident in 2010 at the age of 15. (source)
