So the thing I keep hearing is that Samus’s new Zero Suit design from SSB4 is okay because “they’re not actually high heels, they’re jet boots.”
But before we get into that: why is it a big deal that Samus is wearing heels in the first place?
Great article regarding character and costume design of Samus Aran throughout the years. Things to learn from it:
- why slapping “jet boots” label on high heels doesn’t justify the heels
- what Samus’s appearance conveyed in the old Metroid games and what it does now
- why is Zero Suit worse than a two-piece skin revealing costume Samus used to have
- how the recent games betrayed Zero Suit’s original purpose
I highly recommend reading it whole!
In addition, Shattered Earth did a great breakdown on the “Jet Boots” (Dr Evil air quotes there) and explored what they might have looked like if they were designed with purpose here.
Hi everyone, just letting you know that I’m ok. This is finals week so now is “make it or break it” time. Once it’s over I’ll have a lot more free time and will be able to catch up with Tumblr again, as well as getting to all my messages. Thanks for understanding!
Sorry about the lack of activity, everyone! My second semester started and the workload was way unexpectedly more than I could handle so it kicked me in the gut. Trying to keep it under control but I haven’t had time to go on Tumblr because of that. Not sure how often I’ll be on but work comes first!
“Welcome to Cardboard Box Office – our homemade creations of some of your favorite movie scenes built from some of our favorite domestic junk.
The project began after finding that we had accumulated both a lot of cardboard boxes (due to moving to a new country) and a baby (due to giving birth). With our social lives drastically altered we decided to find a way to make some of those housebound weekends a little more fun.
The costumes, props, and sets in Cardboard Box Office are created entirely out of everyday household items, toys, cardboard, and three individuals slowly losing their sanity. Enjoy!”
Excuse you that is packing tape
no one should be able to do that with packing tape…
Coming from someone who not long ago was making these crass, lazy and insensitive comparisons. YOU ARE NOT DELIVERING A SENSIBLE, NECESSARY ARGUMENT.
The word “holocaust” with its literal definition describes the state of animal production perfectly.
THAT DOES NOT MATTER.
Same with the word “slavery”.
Here I’ll say it again,
The proliferation of the AR movement relies on our ability to APPEAL TO PEOPLE. AND USING THEIR STRUGGLES AS A PROP TO DISCUSS VEGANISM IS A GUARANTEE THEY’LL GO IN ANY DIRECTION BUT VEGANISM.
If PoC tell you to stop doing oppressive shit, you sit down, listen and change your behavior. You DO NOT keep justifying.
Because of carnism, people are not yet able to give animals equal considerations to humans. For better or for worse they are still under the impression that animals are inferior. By comparing animal suffering to the Holocaust and slavery you are insulting those affected, even if that’s not your intention.
So, what seems like to you is a completely sensible connection to make, comes off as privileged and dehumanizing.
So, if you really are serious about veganism, you need to fucking stop it with this shit. Immediately.
Don’t understand? Trust me, you’ll be better off just taking my word for it.
I want to end suffering for non-human animals. And I know that in order to do that, I need to reach as many people as possible, and I also know that using the holocaust and slavery while discussing veganism will almost always alienate PoC and even incite spite.
WE DO NOT NEED ANYMORE BAD REP. STOP. DOING. THIS.
I don’t think I’ve been this impressed with a guide in a long time. Wow. What a great way to think about hands and feet!
Anonymous asked: I’m not sure if anyone’s asked this already, but do you know of any resources that explain what living on the run would be like for a criminal? (Crimes would be theft, burglary, robbery, etc.) Like, being a modern-day outlaw and having to use…
