DROPPING A SHAMPOO BOTTLE IN THE SHOWER IS ONE OF THE MOST TERRIFYING EXPERIENCES IN LIFE
Argentina JUST PASSED a groundbreaking gender identity bill!!!
From now on, people will be able to change the name and gender on their ID without needing psychiatric permission or any body modifications. Furthermore, anyone who does want hormones or surgery will be able to access them for free through the public and private health system.
It was passed unanimously today by the Senate
Argentina is just getting more awesome by the year. Countries that aren’t Argentina need to take note.
friendly reminder that:
- you are not weak if you want meds for your disorder
- you are not weak if you relapse once
- you are not weak if you relapse a thousand times
- you are not weak if some kinds of therapy don’t work for you
- you are not weak if some kinds of meds don’t work for you
- you are not weak if you have a mental disorder.
This right here
this is literally the best thing i’ve seen in a long time. props to whoever made this, you are a metaphorical genius.
The fact that I have to go out of my way to define what is and what isn’t legitimate criticism to people is sad.
Okay, and let ME explain
There are two groups of people who are upset here. There are the hardcore fans crying over the loss of a proper sequel who, really, need to get over it because even if they did get it they’d probably be disappointed with that too quite frankly
Then there’s the people like me
I AM NOT DISAPPOINTED BECAUSE IT IS A COMEDY OR BECAUSE IT’S SHORTS OR WHATEVER. NO, THAT’S -FINE- IT REALLY DOESN’T MATTER.
The animation is fluid, the voice acting is SPOT ON, and some of the writing is pretty ok. The show isn’t the problem.
The problem is taking characters and mushing them into a situation to make a joke but in doing so EFFECTIVELY LOSING THE CHARACTERS. Let me further explain:
Starfire’s original character trait, above all, was being someone who was playful and kind. She loved trying new things and attempting to introduce her friends to her culture because it made her feel closer with them.
What is Starfire’s defining trait in the reboot? She’s lovesick. What did they focus on in the commercials? Her tendancy to overreact to something happening to her appearance. They took the depth out of her and DIDN’T EVEN KEEP TRUE TO HER CHARACTER TRAITS.
The same can be said for Beast Boy; he’s a trickster and a goof but he’s sincerely a good guy who cares a lot about others. What is his main character trait? Idiocy. They made him more stupid so they can play that as a joke too.
And it goes on.
Robin is bossy and annoying, Cyborg is so lazy FIGHTING CRIME IS A CHORE TO HIM, and RAVEN?
DO I REALLY NEED TO TALK ABOUT WHAT THEY DID TO RAVEN?
I don’t mind having a comedic spin off. The idea is GREAT.
I mind having three dimensional characters twisted and warped until they’re so flat they barely seem human JUST FOR A PUNCHLINE. What makes the Teen Titans series great is being able to address issues and relate you to the cast EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE VASTLY DIFFERENT THAN YOU. Racism was addressed, self esteem was addressed, abusive family was adressed
I GET THAT THESE THINGS WOULD NEVER BE IN A SHOW LIKE THIS
I just wished they did the cast more justice.
Who is a better role model for your kid, the Starfire who depends solely on a crush to seem relevant or the Starfire that teaches you no matter how different you are, your friends will love and accept you?
The Cyborg that struggled to accept himself or the Cyborg that would rather sleep all day than lend a hand?
Just some food for thought.
^ ^ ^ Basically my thoughts on this.
I know it may sound lame, since I was a lot older at the time, but when the original Teen Titans was airing I really needed the role models and life lessons they taught.
What makes me disappointed with the sequal is NOT the animation, NOT the style (I like the style, sorry haters to the back), NOT the humor or the references.
Its that these are really one dimensional characters, and everything that was great about who they were is gone.
And I feel without that, the whole world of Teen Titans feels lost to me. It’s uncompelling and uninteresting and just.
….Well, it reminds me of the Mad cartoon shorts.
Probably because it’s done by the same few people (I think, right?)
It’s just…… just…..
flat. boring, uninspired.
as someone who has been a die hard fan of the comics as well as the cartoon i concur. its depressing to see the characters who had so much to like lose so much of their personalities
