so i got this idea of a humanstuck au where trolls are a playable species in a virtual world MMORPG: humans, lowbloods and other species are f2p, highblood land-dwellers are pay once to play, and seadwellers are play on a subscription basis 

and theyre immersed in the virtual world by use of special headsets that read and manipulate neuron synapses and brain waves that basically immerses all their senses into this world and they can change what plain their consciousness is on by use of the control panel which pops up like a holographic panel from the game emblem which is not only given to them as a pin to include in their outfit, but also tattooed onto their characters upon creation to prevent them from getting stuck in the game

eridan, being a massive tool he is, pays for a highblood seadweller character to show off that hes rich hot shit. basically they kind of look like this in the outside world while ingame

including nods to guild wars 2 (which is a super hella game btw) and .hack (interesting concept in an anime anyways) for the ideas of how the worlds might work (also maybe assassins creed with the animus)

Sexism 60’s

jesus???????????????

What the fuck was wrong with men in the 60’s?

advertising is important as it’s the historian’s best resource for identifying the values of an era. but yeah, these were fucked. the 60s was generally as fucked as the 50s. people forget that. 

It literally says ‘men are better than women’ in bold type, what the fuck. I knew this was a thing, but that is a lack of subtlety I couldn’t have written into a spoof…

This is the generation that spawned most of our parents… People our parents’ age run Washington. Starting to make sense?

When you look to the past, the struggles of the present become a great deal more clear.

Hey Everyone, just an FYI…. This is not over. This is not exclusive to “our parents generation”

yeeees

why is Ursula shunned from King Triton’s society? does it have something to do with being more powerful than him? why does King Triton have a magical trident, being otherwise a pretty regular merman? Ursula is a witch, if anyone should have a magical artifact it should be her, did King Triton steal it?

and finally, Ursula didn’t do Ariel much wrong

Ariel wanted some legs (and a vagina) and Ursula told her flat out that in the surface world you can have a vagina or a voice, not both

i’d watch the hell out of a movie about Ursula

Ursula told her flat out that in the surface world you can have a vagina or a voice, not both”

ohhhh shit though, ursula was being too real about the world

although perhaps a bit too literal

Okay, these were all excellent points and I’ll never see The Little Mermaid the same way again.

I laughed at that caption at first then the reality actually hit me

you can have a vagina or a voice, not both”

Bruh… Little mermaid was deep.

Ursula gave the game to Ariel:

"The men up there don’t like a lot of blather.
They think a girl who gossips is a boor.
And on land it’s much preferred for ladies not to say a word,
and she who holds her tongue gets a man.”

^^^

Literally the whole song “Poor Unfortunate Souls” was Ursula asking Ariel if she was sure that was the kind of life she wanted. She told Ariel EXACTLY what to expect and exactly what would happen should she fail to uphold her end of the bargain. Ursula was 100% honest with her. Ariel STILL said yes because she was naive.

And notice Eric wasn’t too distraught about Ariel not having a voice during their time together? After he got over the initial shock, he was like “Okay, cool, I’LL do all the talking and you just look pretty.”

Can we get a whole line-up of movies about our villains, though? I really am more interested in their backstories than anything.

Just a fraction of the cool stuff I learned when researching women’s history.

Rosalind Franklin did not just help. She actually discovered the structure before - Watson and Crick stole all the credit after building a stick and ball version of it.

The first known author and poet in history was a woman - Enheduanna.

The first known chemist was also a woman - Tapputi.

Newsflash: Men like to be represented just like women do. It’s harder for me to self-insert as a character if they’re female.

gamers

I’m a little concerned about the whole “it’s harder for me to self insert as a character if they’re female” thing there.  Like.  You know it’s possible to relate to characters regardless of gender or whatever right.  That’s how relating to characters works - you find something in them that does fit with you.  How do you think minorities relate to media currently?
This is actually one of the reasons it’s so important to have better, more diverse representation.  So that little boys, little white kids, little able bodied kids, etc etc, find heroes that aren’t exactly like them.  This teaches them empathy, it teaches them the humanity of minorities.  If a little boy grows up having a woman as his hero, if he can see himself in her, then it will be easier for him to see the women around him as complex people, rather than interpreting the people around him as stilted caricatures like media might otherwise teach him.
