Olivier Armstrong has full lips, big blue eyes, a small nose, long luscious blonde hair, and she isn鈥檛 sexualized once in the entire series.
Tumblr media
One of my favorite things about FMAB is how it presents women. The women of FMAB are diverse and independent heroes and villains, and wow do they get their time to shine. FMAB refuses to adhere to sexual tropes often found in anime/manga, and aside from a few shots typical for the shounen genre, the women of FMAB are not sexualized. From Lan Fan and Maria Ross to Riza Hawkeye and Winry Rockbell, every FMAB woman is a complex, dynamic character with a聽 significant role in the plot.聽
And for every woman that is sexualized, a man gets sexualized, too. FMAB has plenty of ab shots, and most of them come from Major Armstrong and are a big part of his comedic role. Major Armstrong, while he is a character used mostly for comic relief, is also a fantastic example of how FMAB handles physical and spiritual androgyny. Alex has the full pink lips, bright baby blue eyes, and long eyelashes of the Armstrong family. Additionally, he is almost completely hairless, a trait expected of modern women. He is also a huge absolutely ripped war criminal who all but defeated one of the most dangerous homunculi on his own.聽He鈥檚 terrifying. And yet none of us have ever once thought that while watching the series. Why? Because he also has a hair loop, is entirely silly, and has traditionally feminine features.
Tumblr media
But that鈥檚 the thing-- Olivier has those same traits. She has a hair loop and the Armstrong facial features that ARE JUST GENETICS, but she鈥檚 not big. She doesn鈥檛 need to be big to be respected by her men. The difference between them is how she demands respect. I鈥檒l write a post later on that. She is confident and skilled, and the men she trains respect her not as a woman, but as a General. She makes it clear from the moment we meet her that her gender is not a box for her, and FMAB as a series sends out a very clear message on its views on toxic feminine and masculine gender roles.
In one scene, she embraces her sexuality and traditional femininity in order to get information from General Raven, and what happens? He sexually harasses her.聽
Tumblr media
It鈥檚 possible that she learned to reject traditional femininity in order to demand respect early on as she climbed the ranks of an extremely patriarchal military hierarchy for that exact reason, but we also see in her interactions with her family that she most likely has always been extremely tough, strong, and confident. And her rejection of traditional femininity is not a rejection of her own femininity or humanity (as embracing masculinity is so often portrayed as rejecting basic human functions like emotions).聽Olivier Armstrong is beautiful, and she knows it. Have you seen her flipping that long gorgeous hair around?聽
Tumblr media
She is also emotional and caring, displayed in how she looks after her men and grieves the loss of her good friend and soldier Captain Buccaneer.
As a woman, Olivier Mira Armstrong鈥檚 confidence and her take-no-crap attitude demands respect from every single person who crosses her path. As a General, her confidence and stability in who she is as a woman and person allow her to command armies in much greater battles.

There wasn鈥檛 any place in Amestris we could safely hide a dead girl. Especially one that鈥檚 still alive.

I love how the Elrics just go around collecting adopted parents and surrogate guardians in all directions. No matter what they do, they attract the attention of parentally charged adult figures in their lives and end up in a mess of chaotic found family bullshit and I love this about them.

Meat Day
Tumblr media
Q8: Popular in Amestris, what is the day and month of 鈥淢eat Day鈥?
A: November 29th聽聽聽聽 B: February 9th
C: March 10th 聽 D: Sig鈥檚 Birthday
Tumblr media
B: February 9th
Column: By the way, it's a play on the words 'MEAT' and 'MEET', and means 鈥榓 day to go and meet meat鈥.
- Perfect Guidebook 2, pages 98 & 167.
--
The word for 2 in Japanese is 鈥榥i鈥 (浜) and the word for 9 is 鈥榢u鈥 (涔) so together as 2/9 they make 鈥榥iku鈥, the word for meat (鑲). The sentence about going to meet meat is more wordplay in both Japanese and English, as it is written as 鈥渘iku ni ai ni iku hi鈥, with ni iku (銇銇), 鈥榞o to鈥, being similar to niku as well.
The other answers are puns too. 11/29 is 1 1 2 9, i i ni ku, 鈥榞ood meat鈥 (銇勩亜鑲) and 3/10 is mii to, 鈥榤eat鈥 in English (銉熴兗銉).
So basically,
Tumblr media
Happy Meat Day!
