Poor professor is really confused by the word “cisgender”
Help I’m getting workshopped today
I mentioned pot in my story now they’ll think I’m a pothead welp
Since this conversation has stretched on so long I feel I should note Mia Fey in Ace Attorney is a good example of a woman dying in story with a male main character that isn’t fridging. Even though it furthered Nick’s narrative. She died investigating her OWN case and carrying out her work, and her spirit even came back to help solve it, making her death part of her story as well. Her death was also as much to further Maya’s story, and it was basically a way to get Maya and Nick together as partners, so it was definitely a case of “the plot falls apart without her and now the characters have to scramble around and it takes a new direction because she was so needed”. There was even that moment where Pearl turns into Mia and Maya can finally embrace her sister again- it was so completely about the two of them and Mia being proud of Maya and Maya carrying on for Mia.
And Nick never considered Mia’s death a failure on his part or wound from his past- he just wanted to live up to what she’d taught him and continue her legacy.
And to cap it all off, the third game was as much Mia’s game as it was Nick’s- complete with flashbacks to her first case and a woman she’d put in jail wanting to take out the people she loved to get back at her and THEN MIA MANAGES TO COME AND TAKE HER OUT EVEN AS A DEAD WOMAN.The entire game was like “Mia died, but she’s so badass she’ll beat her enemies even in death.” So like, her death was completely about her narrative and part of her narrative! It’s a great example of how to handle that sort of thing.
Meanwhile Godot was trying to make Mia’s death about him- “she died because of you! She died because I couldn’t protect her~!”, and was shown as wrong in doing so, whereas Nick’s method of respecting her as his hero and mentor and carrying on her legacy was shown as right.
Basically, Ace Attorney will show you how to kill a female character off in a male-centered narrative and not fridge her.
never forget what happens when phoenix gets a puzzle wrong
I’M NOT GUILTY
hE FREAKING SC R EAM S
This sounds way dramatic like hes being taken away from his wife and kids because hes been framed for a murder he didnt commit and hes struggling for someone to believe him as he is forced to go to jail. Not that he just messed up on a puzzle.
The thing about this is that sculptures like these in art history were for the male gaze. Photoshop a phone to it and suddenly she’s seen as vain and conceited. That’s why I’m 100% for selfie culture because apparently men can gawk at women but when we realize how beautiful we are we’re suddenly full of ourselves…
Uterus, I do not understand your need to have a baby. We cannot afford a baby. I do not want a baby. Hell you wouldn’t even be happy if we had a baby. I find these temper tantrums you throw every month we don’t have a baby absolutely unacceptable.

The murder of young Black Men by police continues.
oh for fucks SAKE
Y’all he was shot in the back…. HE WAS SHOT IN THE BACK…
He was carrying a sword? This mf in my geography class carried a sword to class everyday and when I expressed my discomfort it was dismissed. But this brotha was shot in the back.
and it was a blunted sword.. couldn’t have cut anybody… but white people walking around with loaded rifles in target…
Exactly! This is evil.
Damn. Niggas can’t even cosplay anymore? I would love to see the cosplay community say something about this but that definitely won’t happen
Also: this paper is edited by a clown. It should’ve been in the first fucking paragraph that this dude was cosplaying. I’m reading this shit wondering why the fuck this negro is walking down the street with a sword and obvious answer is hidden almost at the en of the article.
This dude was cosplaying.
He was dressed up in a costume.
Should all black people just stay home on Halloween this year?
Friendly reminder that the police shot a black cosplayer in the back
