new sailor moon anime is making dudebros piss and moan and it isn’t even out yet. I’m so proud.

how is that pissing and moaning? they’re rightfully pointing out that you can’t gender a fucking anime

It’s not gendering an anime to point out it was made for women and the majority of the consumers are women. Sailor Moon DID capture the hearts of girls everywhere. It isn’t like there’s a footnote that says “BUT NO BOY HEARTS WERE CAPTURED”
It means a whole fucking lot to a lot of girls because it is rare to get a superhero that is aimed to empower them. Naoko Takeuchi said she made Sailor Moon for girls, to empower girls. She has said this. That was her goal. She wanted to reach girls. You have a problem with that, and the advertisements acknowledging this was the aim of Sailor Moon, that’s really fucking sad.


seriously how is anyone surprised by this.
Whenever dudebros see one thing in this world not aimed towards them, they piss and moan about their balls shriveling up. number one, balls /=/ being a guy. Number 2- go watch the thousands of other things FOR YOU. 
In America, you have plenty. Women aren’t considered an audience worth drawing in. Media studies have shown executives often only target men and figure women don’t need to be targeted bc they’ve been forced to watch shit aimed at men, to put up with male aimed fanservice, their whole lives. They will come with the dudes. They CANCELED superhero cartoons recently using the fact it was too popular with the female viewership instead of the male viewership. Girls don’t often get stuff for them. Disney princesses (which are currently avoiding putting the name of female characters in the movie titles  so boys will go see them). my little pony, which gets a bunch of dudes taking it over, making porn and actually making it uncomfortable for little girls to attend it.Definitely not fucking superheroes (say Wonder Woman and NOT SINCE THE 1970S notice how she doesn’t have a movie or a cartoon and her comic panders towards dudes). 
So when I see American dudes feeling put upon that Japanese media aims some stuff towards girls? zero sympathy. 
Aiming towards girls is what made Sailor Moon what it is.
I feel intense pity for men who can’t handle being put second ever. This is not made for you. You can still enjoy it. Just try to resist the urge not to be catered to or put first in every series you watch.

You want to say Hi to the cute girl on the subway. How will she react? Fortunately, I can tell you with some certainty, because she’s already sending messages to you. Looking out the window, reading a book, working on a computer, arms folded across chest, body away from you = do not disturb. So, y’know, don’t disturb her. Really. Even to say that you like her hair, shoes, or book. A compliment is not always a reason for women to smile and say thank you. You are a threat, remember? You are Schrödinger’s Rapist. Don’t assume that whatever you have to say will win her over with charm or flattery. Believe what she’s signaling, and back off.

If you speak, and she responds in a monosyllabic way without looking at you, she’s saying, “I don’t want to be rude, but please leave me alone.” You don’t know why. It could be “Please leave me alone because I am trying to memorize Beowulf.” It could be “Please leave me alone because you are a scary, scary man with breath like a water buffalo.” It could be “Please leave me alone because I am planning my assassination of a major geopolitical figure and I will have to kill you if you are able to recognize me and blow my cover.”

On the other hand, if she is turned towards you, making eye contact, and she responds in a friendly and talkative manner when you speak to her, you are getting a green light. You can continue the conversation until you start getting signals to back off.

The fourth point: If you fail to respect what women say, you label yourself a problem.

There’s a man with whom I went out on a single date—afternoon coffee, for one hour by the clock—on July 25th. In the two days after the date, he sent me about fifteen e-mails, scolding me for non-responsiveness. I e-mailed him back, saying, “Look, this is a disproportionate response to a single date. You are making me uncomfortable. Do not contact me again.” It is now October 7th. Does he still e-mail?

Yeah. He does. About every two weeks.

This man scores higher on the threat level scale than Man with the Cockroach Tattoos. (Who, after all, is guilty of nothing more than terrifying bad taste.) You see, Mr. E-mail has made it clear that he ignores what I say when he wants something from me. Now, I don’t know if he is an actual rapist, and I sincerely hope he’s not. But he is certainly Schrödinger’s Rapist, and this particular Schrödinger’s Rapist has a probability ratio greater than one in sixty. Because a man who ignores a woman’s NO in a non-sexual setting is more likely to ignore NO in a sexual setting, as well.

So if you speak to a woman who is otherwise occupied, you’re sending a subtle message. It is that your desire to interact trumps her right to be left alone. If you pursue a conversation when she’s tried to cut it off, you send a message. It is that your desire to speak trumps her right to be left alone. And each of those messages indicates that you believe your desires are a legitimate reason to override her rights.

For women, who are watching you very closely to determine how much of a threat you are, this is an important piece of data.

an excerpt from Phaedra Starling’s “Schrödinger’s Rapist: or a guy’s guide to approaching strange women without being maced” (via lostgrrrls)

women being afraid of Shrodinger’s Rapists (oh my god i still can’t get over the encompassing brilliance of this phrase) is a conditioned, learned response from being immersed in rape culture and the evolution of sexism and sexual violence in our society from the day we’re born. And unfortunately, it’s very difficult to unlearn without the efforts of all genders to dismantle it. Which is where you come in.

White people get mad over things like the picture of one direction walking on abbey road, or wearing a band t shirt when you don’t listen to the music, calling it “disrespectful” but when it comes to cultural appropriation and stealing marginalized people’s most sacred traditions, they’re like “oh, we’re just appreciating your culture, stop getting so angry” while throwing paint at each other and prancing around in cheap, craft store, feather headdresses
