Here’s the skinny:I’d like to do a Livestream for anyone who wants to watch me draw for the Technicolor tournament and perhaps other things this Friday, October 3 at 7:00PM, Central Time.Since this Livestream will be mainly focused on the TechnicolorOCT, there will be some adult language in the stream.  Most of it may be from me.  Just a fair warning.My only limitations for you, the viewing audience, are these:Please be kind to one another.  I want this to be a comfortable time for everyone who comes.  If my language is too coarse, I will respectfully tone it down.
Keep the chat focused on casual discussion.  If you want to roleplay something with someone, share your contacts with one another and do your business elsewhere.
Only request something for me to draw when I express that I want to take requests.

If you follow those rules, I’m certain we’ll have a swell time.Until then!

Like a lot of people, I’ve sort of left my mayoral duties to Isabelle in order to become a pokemon master.

In two days, I’ll probably be picking up Ace Attorney 5, and next month, a Link Between Worlds is coming out. So busy! 

This comic is inspired by a tweet.

Like a lot of people promote RGU for the fact that it’s feminist and has canon/heavily-implied queer girls and it’s full of symbolism and all that shit is great and I love it for that but like

It’s really stuff like the Akio Sex Car or Nanami turning into a cow or that arrow in the Nemuro episode that makes RGU as special as it is

I really dislike how the creator finds lesbian relationships to be more “pure” than any other kind.

Honestly, the only thing that bothered me about the series and the movie was this.If anyone wants to talk about this, I’m open.

That’s a pretty common trope though, if a shitty one. It’s why basically every girlxgirl manga occurs in a high school setting, and usually an all girls one at that. The girls tend to be young and it is a “pure” or “girlish” relationship, usually without the presence of men in their lives. On the other hand when there is a blatant male gaze present in the narrative the lesbian characters are hyper-sexualized for his pleasure. Which is a dichotomy that would fit well in Utena, but is, weirdly enough, absent. (The closest RGU gets to dealing with this is Juri and Ruka, where they touch another old trope that the lesbian character could be “fixed” by the right guy, however Juri has the agency to subvert this trope).
In RGU’s case it’s sort of weird that they chose to do the “pure” route. Most of the series focuses on feminist ideas, including that women can be just as vicious as men (Nanami picking on Anthy, Shiori and Juri, to each other, and Juri in general, etc.) but it is also something out of the  mid-90s, and so is a product of its time. There is a now out-dated idea from 80s/90s feminist thought that the only equal relationship a woman can be in is with another woman. Because, well, men are assholes, and western and westernized cultures tend to see the male phallus as a weapon. Men will inherently hurt the women they are with, whether they mean to or not. Now, this thought process is a way oversimplification of people and also relies heavily on hetero-normative gender roles. Having it in such a complicated series sort of dampens it’s message.
On the other hand, I tend to read Utena and Anthy as being portrayed as “pure” because although there is plenty of suggestive context around them, theirs is a relationship not based on sex, and they don’t use it to manipulate each other the way literally every sexual exchange in Utena does. That’s not to say they don’t have sex, just that we don’t see it because it’s not a plot point. 
So, I guess it’s a trope that appears because a. it’s a product of its time and b. the creators were trying to show a loving relationship in contrast to the other relationships where sex was used for manipulation.
For my own 2 cents, I don’t think RGU is explicitly saying that a heterosexual relationship couldn’t be “pure” it’s just not concerned with showing it because Utena came hot on the heels of Sailor Moon, which Ikuhara also directed, where that sort of “pure” heterosexual relationship had been addressed.

but morning person + not morning person could make the worst (or maybe the best?) otp

"Gooooood morning dear :)" "fuck you and everything you stand for"

Livestream date?

I’m moving the day to Friday so anyone who has school or work tomorrow can come and see, if they want.

So let’s say Friday, October 3, 7PM Central (UTC - 5:00).  Would that be a good day and time for y’all?

To Be Continued…

Here are the first 9 pages I finished yesterday! It’s a story about a bunch of kids who look like food for some weird reason. I have the rest of the story written, so stay tuned for more “Class President”!

Support my education by buying the first part  for a buck as a HQ PDF on Gumroad and Sellfy!
