"Steven Universe panders to the social justice crowd too much!"
Translation: “I don’t like it because there are POC characters who don’t rely on stereotpes for their characterization, fat characters who aren’t just walking punchlines and female characters who are well written!”
It makes it clear when people use this as a “criticism” against the show.
im laughing so fucking hard this looks like complete shit
when sakurai says “female designer” does he mean a designer who is female, or just a designer of females
the more i look at this the worse it looks but i don’t get why people say that samus’ sexualization is “important to her character” or w/e
like there’s a difference between a few pieces of post-game artwork where, by the way, she looks like this:
and a complete character model which is far more sexualizedthan the art it’s based off. there’s obviously sexualization going on here (midriff, her shorts slipping off for no reason) but notice that her top is an actual top, not just a bra, notice that she’s drawn with a casual pose rather than contorted into whatever the hell is happening above
the end-game image here is less sexualized than all of her current depictions and even her earliest depictions, which shows that sexuality isn’t at all critical to her character - the degree of it changes based on not only the context but also from game-to-game and artist to artist
I hadn’t even checked the art it’s based on, but holy shit yeah it’s not even faithful they straight up swapped a snug tank for a literal bra
Does it even matter if it’s sexualized? Videogames are an art, a form of someone’s creative vision. If that person decides to design their characters a certain way than so what, don’t just sit around and complain about it on the internet. I don’t complain about the representation in your fanfiction or your drawings or shit you do creatively, what you do there is your choice because it’s your vision, not someone else’s.
criticism isn’t censorship, if a thing looks bad I’ll say it’s bad. art needs to be able to survive the crucible of criticism, not be insulated from it
sorry you’re a baby about protecting your video games from negativity
Hushhhhh no bby they’re not sexualizing samus, Shhh no no no
u see she’s a strong woman who can wear shorts and bra cuz she wants.
Besides a female designer is responsible see? We’re not sexist no no no
Long ago, in ancient times, our ancestors spoke of a TV show called “Steven Universe”. Though it disappeared from this world, they prophesied that, one day, it would return to Thursday nights on Cartoon Network. Hark, the stars have aligned, and the loyal see that glorious time is upon us! Steven has returned, as voiced in ancient song, to separate the faithful from the unbelievers and usher in a glorious new age of consistent, weekly new episodes at a reliable 6:30 pm timeslot!!
So new episodes start this Thursday, y’all should go watch.
Amen brother Paul, amen!
ugh my ‘parents’ are watching news in new “evidence” about mike brown and ranting about the 9rotesters and how they are looting.
I dont even want to engage
