I’m late to the comments here but this is beautiful!!
I usually am ok with your advice Doc but it’s weird to read after just having a run in with my abuser, who I dated when I was 18 and he was 31. I’m a smart girl, have always been attracted to older men, and sure *felt* adult then, but that got greatly taken advantage of. 20 isn’t much older than 18, especially if…
Hentai has been freeing/healing/healthy for my sexuality in a way other porn was never able to be. Those non-ideal situations can be a good space to experience whatever transgressive things I find hot, if that makes sense. I’m just one girl though.
I have JJBA to thank for two of my best friendships - one probably the best of my life, which is pretty jojo.
you mean Nagi no Asukara of Rock being on the back of the dvd fame??
look I honestly trust hentai fans more (and am one...but...yeah) and have generally felt safer and more respected fucking otaku than non otaku
It’s become my favorite right now...possibly in a long time, and I’m pretty confident that they won’t take it there. It’s been a surprisingly moving and healing show for me, and let’s just say I have experiences with that kind of relationship gone wrong.
we’ll always have our two sons and daughter who is a dog
Haken! I realize I didn’t name you up there but you’re a god damned ray of sunshine.
always a wine mom
Well I’m gonna comment now that it’s drinking time. I don’t want to leave anyone out so my sincerest apologies if I do.
For every time this show has been extremely dumb, it’s sparked some great discussions about sexual agency, gender roles in sex, connection, etc. and I sincerely look forward to it every week.
lol I wasn’t upset when I typed that out but ok
Even if the things teenage girls like get a lot of exposure, they’re still treated, as a demographic, as vacuous and unworthy of credit for their interior lives. They may be allowed to be enthusiastic but the media that covers their enthusiasm tends to be dismissive.
I’m always shocked at fandom articles and how apparently a huge swath of commenters on a video game website have never engaged with fandom/fan work and claim to not understand it.
Except shipping as a fandom term dates back to the 90s, meaning the vast majority of OG shippers are at least in their 30s if not older now. As a concept of making fan works that pair characters, esp. same sex characters, it goes back to the 70s so...
I don’t know what it is...I watched it as a stupid 15 year old and kind of liked it, just kept watching it at least once every year, and now I’m a 26 year old who gets Emotional at the very mention of it.
But it won’t have 90s era Daniel Day-Lewis, Wino, and Michelle Pfeiffer so eh
I do remember you! I’ve been uh...not well, but through a lot of important experiences. But I hope you’ve been doing alright :)
Yeah, I would like nothing more than that to come true! They’ve frontloaded so many big ideas and blunt visual cues in there that I hope the creation team can pull off following through on it all.
