Someone: I hc this character as gay
Fandom: Yes our gay king!!
Me: I hc this character as lesbian
Fandom: Didn’t she look at a man for like .5 seconds that one time in S2 ep 3??? Shes definitely not a lesbian. I really think her interaction with (insert male character who treats her like shit) really proved that. Maybe she’s pan or something?? I can’t see her being a lesbian you know 😷 not to be lesbophobia or anything 😇😇 but it’s so gross 😚😚
to name just a few that I’ve personally dealt with
-it’s ok to be living with your family over the age of 18
-it’s ok if you’ve never had a relationship, and if you still haven’t had your first kiss
-it’s ok to have cellulite. it’s ok to not to work out
-it’s ok not to have a huge friend group, or a big social media presence
-it’s ok if you’re not “conventionally” attractive bc that concept is made up!!!!
-it’s ok if you aren’t good at make up, and don’t want to be. it is not lazy for a women to go bare face.
-it’s ok if you didn’t go to parties and drink excessive amounts during high school, high school is so glamorized in tv and it’s not a true depiction. high school is NOT the best four years of your life. neither is college. you did not miss out.
-it’s ok to not know what you want to do, or change your ideas 1000 times. if you want to go back to school @ 28, do it. there is no age limit on education
-it’s ok to have body positivity for others but not yourself. you are growing.
-most importantly, you have time. you have time
don’t hate urself, hate the system that made u feel insecure about every single aspect of ur life
HEY REMEMBER WHEN YANG AND BLAKE LET ROBYN IN ON THE SECRET ABOUT THE GCT AND IRONWOOD WAS ALL PISSY LIKE “LoYaLtY aLwAyS mAtTeRs” AND BLAMED LIKE THE END OF THE WORLD ON TEAM RWBY NOT LICKING HIS BOOTS? REMEMBER IRONWOOD’S WHOLE DEAL ABOUT HOW YOU SHOULD TRUST HIS BEST JUDGEMENT OVER ANYTHING ELSE BECAUSE HE’S THE GENERAL BLAH BLAH BULLSHIT ETC ETC???
APPARENTLY HE SEES NO ISSUE IN TEAMING UP WITH THE OBVIOUSLY VERY EVIL GUY WHO ORCHESTRATED A LOCAL MASSACRE TO FRAME HIM VIA PENNY, WHO IRONWOOD HIMSELF TRIED TO KILL EARLIER FOR THIS REASON, BECAUSE PENNY IS WORKING AGAINST HIM NOW AND HE WANTS HER OUT OF THE PICTURE
*bangs potlids together* IF IRONWOOD SHOOTING A HELPLESS MAN FOR CRITICIZING HIM LAST TIME SOMEHOW WASN’T ENOUGH FOR YOU PEOPLE TO FINALLY REALIZE HE ISN’T A GOOD GUY, JAMES IRONWOOD IS NOT A GOOD GUY
IF I SEE ONE MORE MF DEFENDING THIS PIECE OF SHIT ITS ON SIGHT I SWEAR-
Ignoring the fact they’re doing it to literally hack her and take away her autonomy… tearing away one of Penny’s swords was such a personal attack.
Like. Weapons in RWBY are an extension of the self, a piece of your soul. Trusting someone else to use your weapon has been reserved for someone you completely love and trust, like with Bumblebee, or just for extreme circumstances. Even Penny picking up Magnhild was done in extreme circumstances where Nora was physically incapable of holding it, and it still shocked Penny when she picked it up. The people who share their weapons always have a close relationship—Ren using Jaune’s shield against the Nucklavee, or Ruby using Penny’s sword against the Nevermore in Pyrrha’s defense. That is an incredible show of faith, letting someone else use your weapon.
And the Ace Ops show none of that. They just grabbed one of her swords and literally tore it away from her. The only time we’ve seen someone do something so…invasive, so cruel, with another person’s weapon was when Adam broke Gambol Shroud. And that ended with it being used to kill him.
Like, it’s RWBY, I’ve said this before, but the symbolism.
