get out your VCR’s it’s time to watch The Prince of Egypt. or you can watch it here.
please don’t watch exodus: gods and kings because it’s icky and racist. you deserve better. you deserve the prince of egypt.

the prince of egypt will always be the superior moses movie

I agree with this almost completely; I think Prince of Egypt is a wonderful film and I think this new movie will be terrible, but I don’t think it’s entirely accurate to call Moses a peaceful and non-violent man.  hemeline:

Anonymous asked:

One reason I hate the fact that Oracle is gone that they didn't stop there. Jericho talks, the Chief walks, Dr Mid-Nite is gone, etc. DC didn't just erase and cure their most well known disabled character, but also their more obscure ones :(

A

renaroo:

You’re completely right, anon. Not to mention characters representative of other disabilities that weren’t visible like Cassandra Cain, Todd Rice, and Rose Forrest.

But they’re trying so hard to separate Barbara from her position as a representative of disabilities that they won’t even let her wear glasses, though I’ve read that some writers asked for her to have them.

I mean. She’s had glasses since she first appeared as Batgirl. But she can’t even have weak vision now?

It’s hard to explain DC’s truly baffling decisions without getting into some truly ugly subjects.

NYCC Cosplay Update

So I’ve decided my Lex Luthor cosplay will just be a Stryker’s Island Penitentiary jumpsuit because I think it will be easier than the purple and green suit. Now I just have to figure out how to get the lettering done.

what's extreme is people like you not realizing that sometimes diversity can go too far. When characters are made black or disabled or gay for no reason it hurts the story and it hurts the cause of the people who are supposedly being represented.

I like how you sent me an ask claiming that no one says a thing except people rhetorically making fun of the position that no one actually holds, and then you send me an ask clarifying that you hold exactly the same position.

I’m kind tempted to just not address anything else you said and just marvel in the perfection of that.

What’s the reason for making a character white? What’s the reason for making a character straight? What’s the reason for making a character abled or neurotypical or cis?

When you assume that making a character Other relative to yourself weakens the narrative, you’re revealing a terrible thing about yourself: that you can’t imagine that those people have backstories and inner lives the way that you do.

Every single person in a fictional narrative is ultimately there because a writer decided they needed to be there, but when the person looks like you and matches your expectations, you accept that this person who was made up for the plot had a life full of events that led them to the point where they’re appearing on the screen or page.

But when your expectations aren’t met, you start saying it’s forced. You can’t accept that events led them here because you don’t grant them the kind of life that you know you have. Your empathy does not extend to them. 

Look at how many white people think they can relate to a little girl in an industrial orphanage who falls in with a capitalist robber baron during the Great Depression more than they can relate to a little girl in the foster system in modern New York who falls in with a career politician, all because of a difference of race. The original Annie’s situation and world were only slightly less alien to us than the Victorian period, but making her white somehow makes her relatable in a way that a little girl who clearly exists in our world isn’t.

The fact is, empathy is linked to imagination and we can (and do!) relate to people who are literally alien beings in literally alien worlds. The choice not to relate to Quvenzhané Wallis as Annie—or a Black or gay or female or trans video game character—is a choice to shut off both imagination and empathy. 

The failing is not with the narrative, it’s with you.

So Lucy was a terrible movie and I hate the new Wonder Woman costume. Today was not a good day for me, heroine-wise. It was a great day heroin-wise, however. (In that I didn’t do any)
