Be sure to “full view” each page because (at least on my computer) the black in some of the pages is just GONE. Anyway, my design final. A comic attempting to address society’s failure of telling young boys (and girls too sometimes) that abuse/violence/bullying is NOT an appropriate way to show affection…
REBLOGGING AGAIN because I figured out what was up with the colors uhghhsdlkf
This is so powerful.
This hottie is Iwan Rheon. Take in the perfection. Then cry a little at how much you’re going to end up hating him when he plays Ramsay Snow, the Bastard of Bolton, in Season 3.

Hitler flirting with Eva Braun.
I don’t know how this makes me feel
It makes me feel very uncomfortable
You know what’s so uncomfortable about this? It shows that perhaps one of the most evil men in history, was a human being. That, on occasion, he could be nice, even flirty. That’s not all. You want to see evil people as evil, screaming horrible stuff over a desk with 20 microphones with 20, 000 people saluting them. The evil is clear and recognizable then. This shows a completely different image, it scares you because that means that evil isn’t a stereotype, that evil is not recognizable, that evil could be anyone. It scares you because this shows that could be lurking inside anyone and you’ll never ever know. Maybe in you?
i reblogged this literally like 2 minutes ago, but i want this version because of that comment ^
It’s also uncomfortable because he is actually smiling.
But it’s true. Evil isn’t a stereotype. Nothing is, and nothing will ever be.
that comment just made me rethink life.

Disney vs. Miyazaki: A comparison of female protagonists
While I love both Disney and Miyazaki movies, this is an interesting comparison
This is why I love Miyazaki and at most tolerate Disney. Miyazaki has legitimate strong female characters and Disney… well, it’s Disney. Princes save princesses.
notice what years the disney movies were made in though
kind of an unfair comparison imo /:
holy shit I am about to explode
for one thing, this lovely person above me is correct. Look at Snow White for example. The movie was made in 1937, which obviously was not the greatest time for women. Making an extremely strong female character probably wouldn’t sit well with certain people at that time. The same goes for all of the other early princesses. Even so, if you actually pay close attention to the movies, pretty much all the princesses are strong in some way. Snow White might have wanted a prince, but that doesn’t make her weak. Is being in love a bad thing? NO. She had a batshit lady who wanted her dead on the loose and still managed to remain calm and kind. Plus, look at her. She’s not overly sexualized. If you watch the movie, she has a flat chest, normal waist, and is more child like than anything. It’s the fact that she has a combination of a beautiful face and a kind heart that made the woman upset, because she wanted to be the best.
Aurora: Sex is her only salvation? It’s a fucking kids movie. There’s no sex involved. Granted I don’t remember too much of Sleeping Beauty, but your description certainly is nothing like it. The kiss was the only way to break the curse. She was under a spell and couldn’t do anything about it.
Jasmine: The fact that she was forced to get married is painful enough, so she decided to be courageous and independent and actually do something about it. Yes, she was enslaved, but do you honestly think you’d be able to do the things Jasmine did? Aladdin is NOT a street rat. He was actually very clever, athletic, and strong. These traits combined with Jasmine’s strength and daring nature helped them both to escape Jafar.
Ariel did not change her physical appearance for a man. And even if she did, is that such a crime? She wanted legs even before she met Eric because she was tired of her life in the sea. She used her wonderful personality, kindness, and charm to make Prince Eric fall in love with her, and became a wonderful mother and a kickass lady. Ariel was living under the control of a demanding, overbearing, and over protective father, and made the ultimate sacrifice to live her dream. She also saved her prince’s LIFE.
NO NO NO! Belle, a sweet, beautiful, intelligent girl, had her father captured, and risked her life to save him. Beast fell in love with her naturally due to her personality, not her appearance. If it was her beauty that made him fall in love with her, he wouldn’t have been so cruel to her at the beginning.
Cinderella suffered her entire life; being abused, neglected, and pretty much being a slave, and managed to escape her life and still be so sweet by forgiving the people who made her life hell. Her prince enjoyed her company at the ball, and wanted to meet her again to return her slipper, like a gentleman. When he found her, she was dressed in her normal, dirty attire, and did not look like she did at the ball. Still. he loved her heart, and married her.
I love Hayao Miazaki and Disney, and nothing will ever change that. I’ll defend my princesses in hell.
