Fun Fact

Pressing J while looking at a Tumblr blog or home feed will scroll up on the page, pressing K will scroll down. This is helpful considering a lot of the Tumblrs feature infinite scrolling.

hey look bmo

A discussion of pop culture, third wave feminism, and gender that isn’t terrible or cissexist, hooray PBSIdea channel!

this is really, really good. he switches bmo’s pronouns throughout the video and also gives a good and respectful explanation of gender

*sheds a single, awe-filled tear*

While I get that this guy is trying to do a good thing by breaking down that it’s okay to be any gender you identify as, he needs a big, glowing red sign that says: Sex ≠ Gender! 

Woman, Man = Gender

Female, Male = Sex

Even the World Health Organization makes the distinction between the two.

His argument is confused and borderline insulting, especially when, at points, he says things like: “These feminists support women of any gender! That’s right — women of any gender!” If he had said of any sex, that’d be awesome. But confusing the word “gender” into that mix is pretty much telling AFAB people that they will always be women, no matter what, even if their gender identity doesn’t align with that outdated notion. That’s what we call trans* erasure.

Overall, I enjoyed the video and his insights into BMO. He wasn’t trying to be cisnormative or confusing, and that’s awesome. I didn’t enjoy his confusion on the matter (he should’ve researched a little more) and I also thought it was odd that he linked BMO to Feminism rather than, I dunno, Trans* Equality? That seems like the root of what Adventure Time did right there — they took a trans* genderqueer character and made them fit right in. So I’d rather look at it as Trans* Equality rather than a new feminist movement.

Agreed on all of the above points. The overall message in the video is fantastic, it’s just the delivery that stumbles once or twice. It just goes to show how much basic misunderstandings about trans* issues are deeply ingrained even in the most well-meaning discussions, making the subject a fairly daunting topic for the newcomers.

At least getting this information out there promotes more inclusiveness for everyone and makes people more aware that trans* characters can and should be a more common sight. A++++ to Adventure Time!

VFX/Animation Industry to protest the Oscars

Life of Pi (Fox) and Snow White and the Huntsman (Universal) together grossed almost a billion dollars worldwide. Rhythm & Hues Studios, the company that brought Richard Parker to life and created the bulk of the visual effects for these two Oscar nominated films, has just declared bankruptcy. Many of the artists who worked nights and weekends to create those effects are out of work and unpaid for weeks of work (including nights and weekends) on new tent-pole films for the same studios, Fox and Universal. It’s time for change!

(via Cartoon Brew)

    The disrespectful behavior exhibited by Samuel L. Jackson during the award’s introduction and the trivializing “Jaws” cut off just as Westenhofer addressed Rhythm and Hues’ bankruptcy deserve more coverage than Jennifer Lawrence hitting the stairs just before her speech.  These people are artists, not drones, creating visual masterpieces with hours of patience and perseverance.  If you are an artist, of any measure, this should concern you.  The company responsible for making you have feelings for a ship-wrecked predator, Rhythm and Hues, has declared chapter 11 bankruptcy.  These studios are underpaid and under-appreciated.  Spread the news, call out the Academy on its tactless dismissal of the hundreds of visual artists struggling to stay afloat.

It saddens me greatly when I see those at the top of the industry being treated the same as us down at the base level (which is to say Oscar-winner VFX artists in Hollywood compared to small market television VFX people).  Artists should be valued the same as any actor/director/EVERYONE ELSE.  There is no exception.  They make your movies successful.  They make the impossible, possible.  There is no excuse for this sort of business practice that under-values such important jobs in this industry.

This also solidifies my distaste for the Academy even further.  I was already rather disappointed with how they’ve handled the technical fields and animation (Yes I know there are separate awards shows for those fields of movie-making but I don’t see any of them getting 4 hour time slots on national television, hence you rarely hear about them).  To see them so blatantly disregard such an important part of what makes movies successful these days just disgusts me even further.
