Drawn in 2009. I keep coming back to this picture! I really want to draw the rest of the koopalings like this…Hm!
This is a very hard thing for me to write, because I openly despise and insult Family Guy. I believe it is a form of cheap comedy that targets stereotypes and does nothing to engage the audience, but it works more as an ad, a background noise to a bunch of gender and homsexual rubbish. I also…
here’s a thought
this is the academy awards, where people are judged on their work and awarded for their skill and accomplishments
and seth mcfarlane made a song and dance about the women in the audience who were there to get awards for their work had boobs and where you can see them
so instead of congratulating the actresses who have to put up with being sexualized, typecast, and the focus not on their careers or skill but on their bodies
he forced us to listen to a song reinforcing this belief that actresses value is on their boobs
plus it’s embarrassing for the actress’s names he mentioned. he was embarrassing them at their award show
No, YOU don’t get it.
First of all, the context in which it was presented was brilliant - Captain Kirk from the future telling MacFarlane that he (McF) is supposedly about to do this terribly offensive musical number and it’s going to be a miserable failure, then we see that musical number (that hasn’t actually taken place yet), then MacFarlane basically saying, “Welp, better skip doing that then!” Fantastic.
As to the actresses mentioned: They were in on the joke. Those reaction shots? Those were pre-recorded and staged, the whole bit was. Wow, they must have been really embarrassed and humiliated about it if they agreed to participate in the making of it.
Now run along and go find something else to be offended by and get into a tizzy about that’s actually got basis, and quit trying to make trouble where there is none.
For a generation that likes to talk about irony and how everything is “meta”, it’s pretty ironic that any amount of postmodernism is lost on them
people can be complicit in their own oppression without being forced at gunpoint to participate in it. in fact, the perfect oppressive system is the one where people see more benefit in volunteering the system their complicity than denying it.
also: if you perform a costly, extensive musical production implying that the only value an actress has is the beauty of her anatomy, bookending it with a joke about how you shouldn’t perform a costly, extensive musical production implying that the only value an actress has is the beauty of her anatomy, you’ve still performed a costly, extensive production implying that the only value an actress has is the beauty of her anatomy.
when postmodernism is used to reinforce oppression, it can go fuck itself.
Except that’s not what he was saying. You’re just so caught-up in your misplaced, projected anger you can’t see it. He would have been saying something to that effect if the song had said, “Enough with all your stupid acting, just show us your boobs!” But it didn’t. Those actresses did willingly show their boobs to the world. We did see their boobs. With their consent. That’s just a fact. He didn’t say anything about their acting (duh, the entire show was about that I for one am intelligent enough not to need a reminder during his bit). The point of the song was nothing more than: Hey, wouldn’t that be an entirely goofy thing to sing about at the Oscars? And it was. Goofy and very funny, and here’s your butthurt cream and now you run along, too.
Anonymous: Every (male) Robin is important. Batgirls are interchangeable.
I don’t buy this at all. Batgirl has changed multiple times but so has Robin. Why do people think that this stands?
The original Batgirl was a mainstay as Oracle after she was crippled.
Helena Bertinelli only took up the mantle because Batman wasn’t around and she was The Huntress and went back to being such. Helena trained Cassandra Cain to take the mantle upon returning to the Huntress moniker.
Stephanie Brown was robin for a while and was then Batgirl again but they went back to Barbara after Flashpoint.
But when looking at Robins we have Red Hood, Red Robin, Nightwing and Robin proper. Characters change their costumed names all the time. Robins have done it as much as batgirls and some batgirls have been robins… and now one of them doesn’t exist because the original was ALWAYS the best.
This entire post is a feminist argument that has no basis on anything and is really ridiculous.
