Violent Delights

Hey my name is Corinne, I attend the University of Arizona. I like to think I'm a pretty easy person to get along with, unless you talk out of your bung-hole. I'm interested in social issues, and I believe in a world of global equality. I like to write and read, and I love to decipher the meanings behind movies and advertisments. If I could have any job in the world, I would do that crazy Face-Off style monster/movie make-up. Hit me up if you ever wanna talk :)

NOSTALGIA AS A WEAPON: THE SAILOR MOON RENAISSANCE IS A FEMINIST MISSION BEHIND THE LINES OF POP CULTURE
By Juliet Kahn
Sailor Moon did not enter my life so much as consume it. I was eight, and in the space of a few weeks I learned all the attack names, bought the first two issues of the manga, went through three different understandings of how to pronounce “Takeuchi”, and developed a tiered list of my favorite characters.
I spent hours spelunking the MIDI-laden cave that was Geocities, learning the language of dub-versus-sub wars, exploring webrings, indulging in awful pidgin Japanese, and realizing that I was not actually the only person in the world that loved this show. I filled the drawer of my nightstand with printouts of art book pages (I never did anything with them, but they were the most beautiful things I had ever seen and I needed to possess them somehow). I scraped up a special outfit — a white turtleneck and blue pleated skirt, with my hair in pigtails — just to wear while watching the show.
Opinions crowded my head, the first ones I’d ever really developed on my own: on translation choices, best and worst story arcs, ideal romantic pairings. I didn’t just write Sailor Moon fanfiction — I wrote Sailor Moon poetry. It was, by far, the most vivid and vital part of those last few playground years.
Today, Sailor Moon is inescapable. There’s the new anime of course, and the new musicals, the merchandise, and the retranslation of the manga. But it’s the emblem of a wider renaissance as well, a resurgence of love for mahou shoujo, or magical girl anime and manga — a movement led by women well out of their childhood years.
A quick stroll through Tumblr reveals Sailor Moon cupcakes, punky Sailor Moon jackets, heartfelt essays about what the portrayal of lesbianism in Sailor Moon meant to the reader, dozens of artists working together to reanimate an episode of the anime, Sailor Moon nail art tutorials, cats named Luna, Beryl, Haruka and everything in between, hand-sculpted figurines, ornate embroidery projects, and an endless avalanche of fanart. Sailor Moon as an Adventure Time character. Sailor Moon cheekily clutching a Hitachi Magic Wand. Sailor Moon as a vicious biker chick. Sailor Moon protesting the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby ruling.
Sailor Moon fans have not so much rediscovered their love for Naoko Takeuchi’s sword-and-sparkle epic as they have elected her queen mother of their imaginations and ultimate aspirational self. She is, simultaneously, symbol, cause, and leader.

Probably the best thing I’ve written for ComicsAlliance so far. Enjoy! <3

What she really means:Treasure Planet was going to have a sequel and a tv series and instead of having either it faded into the dusty annals of obscure Disney movies that no one seems to know about.”

Why does everyone say “house-wife” or “house-husband” when “House-spouse” is not only gender neutral, but also RHYMES?

the prof asks the important questions.

Wait, spouse rhymes with house? I always pronounced it ‘spooze’ in my head /o\ WHY IS YOUR LANGUAGE SO WEIRD, GODDAMMIT!!!

Because English beats up other languages in dark alleys, then rifles through their pockets for loose grammar and spare vocabulary.

Today in Solidarity (10.13.14): From Ferguson to Palestine, the revolution has arrived. In the early days of the protests in Ferguson, it was Palestinians who first reached out to offer guidance and wisdom in how to combat police brutality. What has flourished in the time since is one of the truest manifestations of global solidarity I’ve ever witnessed. This is how a moment becomes a movement. #staywoke #fergusonoctober #revolution.

The U.S. Govt has seen this coming—global solidarity between the oppressed—for a long time, and in that time, have been preparing. Not by making a more just world (hard to profit from justice, although that would be the true answer) but by prepping for more oppressive and violent responses. That’s part of why the US police forces now resemble military units.

Let’s remember our numbers at all times. The People have more. Much more.

sex education at its finest

HHHHAHAHAAH WHAT

"so do tampons make girls feel like they’re having sex all the time?"

"It’s every month?"

"I thought it just lasted a couple years"

"It can go for 5 days in a row?!?!" 

"Why don’t guys uteruses shed?"

*upon seeing a pad* “Why did someone flatten this tampon?”

"Why are tampons so little and pads are like mini diapers!"

"You mean you can’t buy one pack and be good for six months?"

"Why are they 7.69 for 10!!"

"Can’t you like fake being pregnant and stop it?"

"Wait… so you’re not peeing blood? Then where does it come from"

^ then you try to explain it to them and they act like having two separate parts for peeing and vaginal secretions is like a fucking story from a horror movie.

if you try to tell me cold doesnt have a smell you’re wrong

when its really cold you can literally smell how cold it is

SWEET JESUS

SOMEONE UNDERSTANDS

OH MY GOD.

I TELL PEOPLE THAT IT SMELLS “SHARP” WHEN IT’S COLD AND PEOPLE THINK I’M FUCKING INSANE.

DEAR CHRIST

COLD SMELLS THE SAME WAY SOME METALS SMELL

Rain smells round, cold smells sharp, and spring in general smells curly.

and heat smells fat and heavy
