whatever you do, don’t imagine your favorite character in an oversized sweater. it’s too late for me. tell my family I love th
Hey look another disgusting sexist t shirt liscensed by DC…
I can’t even begin to point out why this shirt is so gross
Shit I’d love to get fucked by Bruce Wayne what are you even talking about
Good for you my friend.
However you wanting to fuck Bruce Wayne does not negate the issues with this shirt. First: DC has licensed this shirt for women, while licensing a shirt for men that reads “Training to be Batman”. To DC, men train to be heroes and women train to be married to heroes. Which, in context, is BS because a lot of comic writers and male comic fans think women ONLY read comics because they want to sleep with the male heroes. It’s not bad if you do, but it’s a thing that’s lobbed against women often to tell us we aren’t “real comic fans”. Also, when your only choice is to be Batman’s wife, that’s kind of shitty. Why aren’t there men’s tees saying “training to be Wonder Woman’s husband”? I’ll give you three guesses.
Meanwhile, it’s incredibly weird that they would even have a “training to be wife” shirt because how do you even train to be a wife? Like to train to be a hero is a lot of working out and stuff but training to be a wife is… what? Learning “womanly duties” like cooking and cleaning and sewing? Because this is suddenly the 1940s or earlier, when young women spent their lives learning to become a perfect wife? I mean because that’s what “training” to be a wife notes to me.
Anyway, enjoy having sex with Batman, I’m gonna go train to be a hero instead.

Somebody has to take over, it might as well be me.
I don’t know who this is going to reach, if anyone, but I’m doing a project on cosplay and sexual assault at conventions, and I’m essentially looking for people who would be willing to share their experiences?
I know it’s a touchy subject, which is why I’m having difficulty finding sources, but if anyone is open to talking it would be greatly appreciated. You can share as little or as much as you feel comfortable.
Additionally, I’m focusing my project on NYCC, but I’m open to speak people from anywhere.
this is literally the best argument ive ever read wow

This perfectly summarizes why I love the Simpsons and hate Family Guy.
I watched that episode with my family and I could just feel how uncomfortable everyone was. Honestly, it was a really jarring, unpleasant episode.
Homer is a terrible dad. So is Peter. But Homer’s saving grace has always been that he tries—he’s bad at it and he fucks it up a lot, but he loves his family and he wants to be better than he is.
One of my favorite Homer moments is in “Diatribe of a Mad Housewife.” Tl;dr Marge writes a steamy romance novel starring herself and Ned, and when Homer finds out, he chases down Ned and, rather than attack him, asks him to teach him how to be a better husband.
There’s some part of his stupid self that wants to do better.
I never got that impression with Peter. Instead, the family has gotten more and more abusive towards Meg. It’s really unsettling for me when I started realizing that’s what happens sometimes in abusive families. Abusers sometimes single out one child to abuse, and quite often the other family members take the abuser’s side. After all, it’s easier to side with an abuser than to run the risk of becoming the target yourself.
There’s never really a point where it seems like Peter cares at all that his shitty behavior impacts his family. It actually seems to have gotten worse over the years. He expects everyone to clean up his messes because that’s always what happens; there’s really no reason for him not to be shitty.
And it’s easy to see how Meg is affected. She doesn’t have much of a character, really, because so much her screen time is devoted to being abused. The bits of character development all seem to hinge on her being this sad, neglected person who’s trying her best but never really gets any help from anyone. Quite the opposite; there have been a lot of episodes where her family sabotages any attempts to be herself.
It can be easy to forget how awful this behavior is when the only context is the show itself (frankly, everyone on Family Guy is kind of terrible). Seeing it played against the Simpsons, who are a flawed and dysfunctional but ultimately loving family, was painful to watch.
