so we were talking about gender diversity in anthropology and my professor was asking for the definition of each letter in “LGBTQA” and when we got to the A i said “asexual” and my professor says “actually it stands for ally” and i…
Collage made from confessions of anonymous rape/abuse survivors, submitted to a tumblr blog, painted over with acrylics. This college was meant to show how often things like this happen- overall the confessions received totaled to around 30 messages within half an hour. Just from one girl making one post on to a personal blog asking if anyone had experienced rape and abuse. A lot more than even I expected and utterly disgusting and terrifying. This is our culture.
The Adventures of Prince Achmen.
The oldest surviving animated film in history.
Nonono, you don’t understand how AWESOME this movie is
because it’s not done by a big production firm, or someone with a name as big as Walt Disney, no
the writer and “mind” behind this film was a WOMAN
yes, my dear tumblr peeps, the very first trick animator in the world was a young German woman who had an idea, and enough friends and time to make a feature-length animated film. And it took her three years
because the way this movie (and some shorter works she actually did before Die Abenteuer des Prinzen Achmed) are done is really, really complex. You see those leaves, and the hair of the figures? Yes.
That’s hand-cut paper.
Lotte Reiniger - that’s her name, my friends - always loved the art beind the Chinese shadow puppetry, and after she heard a lecture by Paul Wegener (famous vor the early movies Der Golem and Der Student von Prag) about the possibilites of animated movies, she wanted to combine these two things.
And guys, how she combined it…
Most of the puppets and scenerey she made all by herself. Her friends set up a special table that was lighted from underneath, and in the later movies she would even change the colours of the background mid-scene to change the atmosphere. Above it was a camera, shooting photos of the scenes that she moved milimetre for milimetre for those 16 pictures per second she needed for her movie.
Which makes Die Abenteuer von Prinz Achmed not only the first animated feature-length movie, but also the first stop-motion movie.
as a side note, this film is fucking beautiful and you can watch THE ENTIRE FUCKING THING ON YOUTUBE RIGHT HERE AND I HIGHLY ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO BECAUSE THIS SHIT IS SO IMPORTANT and I also encourage everyone to stop reblogging this gif without the original accompanied text or other words that indicates what it is at all (it showed up on my dash three times before I saw this post and I hate everything), the artist deserves credit for their hard fucking work (in this case, three fucking years of it) so stop being little shits and just leave the damn source, and by the damn source I don’t mean your damn blog
if ur opinion is shit and racist and misogynistic and homophobic u do not get to play the “everybody has their own opinion” card
Everyone should really read the stuff that isn’t highlighted as well… She’s saying we should all be treated as equal and that women shouldn’t be each others’ enemies and that body image issues is a universal…
Unless who interviewed her changed completely what she said, or cut an hypothetical part where she talked about her internalised misogyny and how it is caused by the patriarchy and male expectancies, all the things she said are still really shitty.

The first thing to know about Mako is that to me she represents the elements of the typical (male) hero’s journey flipped on its head:* Miraculous birth? When she is a small child, Mako’s parents are killed in a kaiju attack in Tokyo. (While not explained in the movie, the official novelization states that Mako and her family were just visiting Tokyo when the kaiju appeared.) Call to adventure? Raleigh’s arrival to the Jaeger Program HQ is the catalyst to Mako challenging her adopted father — the commanding officer of the Jaeger Program — to let her become a Jaeger pilot. The Belly of the Whale? Having persuaded her father to let her try piloting, Mako’s first test drive in a Jaeger doesn’t go very well. Road of Trials? With her failed attempt at piloting a Jaeger, Mako’s father is reluctant to send her out on a real mission. Fight Against the Big Bad? Let’s just say Mako is very instrumental in bringing about the end of the Kaiju War.
Mako, who is Japanese, and is played by a Japanese woman (Rinko Kikuchi) further subverts stereotypes because as a character she is effectively the opposite of several tropes related to Asian women. As PolicyMic’s Marjorie Romeyn-Sanabria puts it:
"Was Mako fetishized as the hot Asian chick? No. Was she portrayed as deferential and eager to please? No. She respects her adopted father and military leader Stacker Pentecost, but pleads that he changes his mind about letting her operate a Jaeger. She politely, but honestly conveys her doubts about Raleigh. At no point in the film are any decisions made based on Mako’s appearance. These are all very good things for a film that is released from the Hollywood trick box. When the best audiences can hope for from a summer blockbuster is tired clichés slapped together with action sequences, this is a breath of fresh air."❞
