 God,  I am so angry all the time I am intentionally cruel to friends and miss opportunities of educating people.

 Lost one friend over a racist view,  lost another over supporting riots.  I suspect a few others share one of these views,  but fear to ask because I do not want to break more friendships  :/

Superman comics are confusing.  They shouldn’t have tried to combine back stories of Superman II and Superman III. 
Also,  screw yourself for removing Kon-el from Reign of Supermen. 
Batman is repetitive,  but Detective Comics is best comic they are currently publishing. 
Wonder Woman is basically a long way to return to the ending of last pre New 52 storyline.  
Damian Wayne is better written as a supporting character in Nightwing and Superman than main character in Teen Titans. 
Super Sons is cute,  but Damian is kinda OOC.  Still better than Teen Titans. 
Suprise Suprise,  Red Hood and the Outlaws is decently written and beautifully drawn!
Batwoman looks nice.  I have great expectations for the title. 
Superwoman and Supergirl are ok, but not very inspiring. 
Rest of the comics is forgetable. 
Final thought: DC could well drop anything that does not involve batfamily.  I wouldn’t have cried.

 My tumblr anti fascist post is being mass liked and reblogged by fascists.  They think it is pro fascism.  Even though it is tagged with racism,  antisemitism,  and homophobia.  I have no words.

 I am sure my asexuality is at least partially a result of being seriously repulsed by both breasts and menstrual blood and body hair and sweat.

Finally have my computer back. It was in repair for 10 days, only for the mechanic to discover the problem is not with the comp but the cable.

 Friendly reminder that when he was a teen,  Jason Todd's main weakness was his impulsivity.  He was not arrogant.  He was not aggressive.  He held surprisingly equalist views towards women,  which remains his characteristic every time he interacts with a woman,  even when they fight.  His Red Hood persona is a result of severe brain trauma,  trauma in general,  and living in abusive environment  (Talia is as much if not more fucked up). Given this trauma conga line,  I am surprised the character ended up with any virtue left.

 I had a dream in which Dick Grayson was a transboy and gave birth to Damian when he was 14.  I kinda like it.  Maybe I will write a fic based on this premise to squick people one day.

 Sweet people play best villians.  See Mark Hamill and Joker.  Or Tom Hiddleston and Loki.

 I absolutely cannot stomach cishet romance.  In our culture,  it is default to portray f/m relationships with fem sub and male dom.  Male characters often make casual gestures of dominance and ownership towards female characters. This is supposted to be sexy,  but instead alarm starts to ring in my head,  as this shows the male character does not consider the female one another human but rather an object. Even in the rare cases when the male does not try to dominate the female the physical possibility of such behaviour makes me uncomfortable. Generally the only het couples that are accepted by my brain are the ones where it is stated that the female is a dom and the male is a sub,  and they are happy with it. In any other cases my brain starts to panic.

My most hated people are cis gatekeepers.  You know them.  Doctors,  psychiatrists,  judges,  policemen,  who talk shit like below.
“I don’t see long hair, a dress,  high heels,  make up  or painted nails, therefore I will never call you a woman. "
“I see you have a boyfriend.  Therefore you are a woman,  not a man.”
“I aknowledge you are a man,  but you have a child,  and we cannot permit them being bullied for having a trans parent. ”
“You are sexually active.  If you were a true transwoman,  you would have hated your body so much you wouldn’t have been able to be intimate.”
“You are neurodivergent,  mentally disabled or mentally ill,  therefore you are not capable of understanding the concept of gender. ” (I absolutely hate this one.  When I was young I knew a transboy with Down syndrome who was blatant about being a boy,  and his parents laughed this off and kept talking about how mysogyny is integrated in our culture to affect a disabled kid. )
And finally,  “Two Spirit (or any other non Western gender identity, but often Two Spirit) is a New Age bullshit.  No,  I refuse to to read materials you provide me on this topic.”
The worst thing is,  some transgender people seem to believe all of this. WHY? Do you hate yourselves so much?  Do you want to be conditionally accepted at the expense of other trans people?

 It happened.  Fandom bullshit made me blacklist Wonder Woman,  Black Panther,  and MCU on tumblr.  I am beyond pissed,  and also glad I have this blog.

I find Love Stage to be an interesting deconstruction of Zetsuai. If you are familiar with either manga or just have read volume summaries on Wikipedia you see what I mean. I love the fact that Eiki and Taishi start with similarly toxic premise as Ozaki, but then develop the characters into a mostly healthy relationship, even managing to flip the stereotypes at one point.

Why, yes, this blog will be exclusively about comics and cartoons, both Western and Japanese.

I find it fascinating that the Big Two are doing controversial crossover events at the same time. By this point probably every comic book reader has heard about the "Steve Rogers have always been a Hydra sleeper agent and the Axis originally won WWII" controversy of Secret Empire, but DC decided to introduce characters from The Watchmen into their main continuity despite the creator opposing it strongly from the beginning. Fans of neither company can claim moral superiority. (Why is the DC/Marvel rivarly a thing, anyways?) I personally consider the question of whether a story is well written to be of greater importance than whether the story is moral. It's too early to say anything about The Button, but Secret Empire is the most interesting thing to happen to Steve Rogers since the original Civil War over a decade earlier. Even in the worst case scenario the actions of Hydra!Steve can be atributed to the fact that he is not real Steve Rogers, and that the original never returned from dead. This would retcon every idiotic storyline in a decade, and a decade's worth of idiotic storylines is a lot.
Assorted comic book complaints:
-killing characters off to be replaced by "better" versions/legacies makes the new nameholders meaningless. Recent examples: Superman, Lois Lane, Lobo, Iron Man.
-when you insert a popular character everywhere people will start associatting them with crappy crossover events and the character will lose their popularity. Examples: Loki, Batwoman, Ms Marvel, Moon Girl.
