A study has revealed that the kind of face a woman finds attractive on a man can differ depending on where she is in her menstrual cycle. For example: if she is ovulating, she is attracted to men with rugged and masculine features. However, if she is menstruating or menopausal, she tends to be more attracted to a man with duct tape over his mouth and a spear lodged in his chest while he is on fire. No further studies are expected on this subject.
I don’t know when or where this is from, though given it’s Red Skull and Madam Hydra I suspect Captain America. I’d be more surprised I don’t recognise it, that being the case, but I tended to skim a lot of what I came to call Bad Guy Exposition, where the bad guys talk about their backstories or show off their new destructo-rays or whatever. It’s generally pretty dull and not that useful in the actual plot.
I should think if I came across a sequence with this kind of visuals I would slow down, you know, smell the sadistic roses, maybe take a second glance. On the other hand, it’s not unusual during certain eras to get a LOT of topless Red Skull — something about the contrast between his face and his pecs — so I may have just passed right over it.
There is a shocking amount of (often barely) subtextual kink in early comic books. This looks like it’s either late-nineties or heavily retouched early sixties. If the latter, it’s probably part of a grand tradition of superhero kink that grew out of a couple of factors: the influence of the very intentional femdom kink in Wonder Woman, the fact that artists as a whole tend to be more liberal, the incoming sexual revolution, and the scarcity of work for “kink” artists after the Comics Code came into effect. (I couldn’t name names off the top of my head, but plenty of comic book artists had tidy side-jobs drawing sexually explicit, often BDSM-themed art for adult books. There’s a series out there about Lois Lane dominating Superman that’s not too hard to find.)
All of which kind of sidesteps the fact that this is fucking hilarious and I can’t believe the shit they got away with in the 20th century.
Does anyone know if the Tumblr search now blocks your blog posts from tag searches if you just reblog content from NSFW blogs, but your blog is still marked SFW? what if you’re reblogging SFW content? HOW PARANOID AM I TO EVEN ASK THIS but I am, totally paranoid (I’ve decided to make an entirely new SFW artblog so my stuff can freaking be seen in tag searches, but I need to know if I can reblog art off her onto it, or if I’m gonna have to just repost. I’m just so annoyed in general here ugh)
You're pretty rude to your followers. I'd jump at the chance to set myself apart and prove I'm the artist I say I am, but that's just me. Maybe some people just don't feel that way and would rather treat people like assholes.
i’m pretty sure my job’s giving me carpal tunnel syndrome. at least that seems mostly likely. i wake up with my fingers numb and tingling almost every morning now and they’ve started going numb and tingling when i use the tablet…even for only 30 min ughh fuck, idk what to do developing that is like one of my most fearful fears and shit y’know
In other news, a friendly reminder that anything fannish that makes you happy is good for you, be it outre and avant-garde or the most cliched thing in the universe. And anything fannish that makes someone else happy is good for them, even if it’s not your thing. And that it’s generally impolite to repeatedly tell other people that what they like is intellectually inferior to what you like.
Anyone who would make you feel guilty because you love tropes and cliches and sappy romance is not someone you need in your fannish life. Liking tropes and cliches and sappy romance does not make you less intelligent than someone else, nor does it make your fannish output any less worthy than anyone else’s.
Listen, I’m in fandom to escape from the world and enjoy storytelling and to revel in my id. I don’t pretend any different. If that somehow makes me less ~intellectual~ than another person, well, then, being intellectual isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Pass me the next fake-married coffee shop AU, will you?
FCKH8 is not a charity. They are not a lobbying group, they offer no refuge.
They are a company. A store.
They are literally cashing in on social injustice in order to make a quick buck, hardly doing anything to actually help LGBT* people. They’re no better than the yogurts who’d donate a measly ten cents to breast cancer research as a form of advertisement.
(all while, by the way, promoting a really shallow and stereotypical view of what LGBT* people are like to outsiders.)
I’m really glad people are finally starting to realize how ridiculous this whole thing is and how selfish the company owners are.
