Anonymous said: Artemis was based on a real girl? What do you know about her?
Yep! She’s based on animator/director Victor Cook's daughter, Hanah, who's half Korean and half white. She has naturally blonde hair and grey eyes.
Quote from Greg Weisman:
Victor Cook’s daughter is naturally blonde, though she’s one-half Korean on BOTH parents’ side, making her one-half Asian total. She, in part, served as one of our inspirations for Artemis.
So will the ignorant fucks out there kindly stop white washing her fancast.
The fact that people NEED her to be based on a real person (and otherwise need proof that not all POCs have black hair and brown eyes) to respect the character design when doing fanart or fancasting is just SAD.
That said, Ms. Cook looks really cool and I can see why she was one of the design inspirations. :)
why are people against the ice bucket challenge it’s for a good cause and you get to see all these celebrities in wet clothing clinging to their chests what is the downside why do you not like joy
I just got finished reading a forum that sought to defend hating on Thor being a woman now via its violating the mythos, it’d offend those who believe in norse mythology, its practicioners, ect. Ect.
Alright, I just wanna point out how ass backwards that idea is having actually read the eddas and myths. Lets begin:
Mjonlr isn’t some sentient magic weapon thats picky about who holds it, its just fucking heavy. Marvel has some bullshit about being worthy that they got from god knows where.
Real thor Has a belt and gauntlet to enhance his already fearsome strength to even allow him to pick up mjonlr. I’d also like to point out that male marvel thor lacks these, female thor is visibly wearing them, though I doubt they’ll show up as such. So already female thor is closer to actual thor.
Thor is a ginger with a huge shoulder length ginger fro’. These guys are blonde, sleek, and have straight hair.
Winged/Horned helmets are from the romantic period, vikings, and thus their gods, never wore or made these. In fact, at the height of viking empires, helmets were simple and crude.
Wasn’t alive then, but pretty sure norse gods don’t sound like 17th century englishmen.
Thor would drink literally a lakes worth mead and wrestle frost giants. He also had his own hall and doesn’t live at his dad’s place like marvel thor.
So honestly, some mother fuckers need to crack a book before they spout stupid shit about fictional characters that barely resemble the myths they are based on. Honestly, as someone who actually practices Asatru, if they wanna make their thor a chick, that’s they last thing I’m tripping about inaccuracy wise and isn’t even an issue.
In fact, did you know that the Vikings were actually big on womens rights had better rape laws than we do, didn’t discriminate them from holding positions of power and fucking even fought along side their women? That gods took female form and goddeses took male form time to time?
Something to think about when an ancient “barbaric” race had better equality than we enjoy.
The vikings were more feminist than we think (although, I can only suppose that they still lived under a patriarchy). The women did have a lot of power, were very independent and were the ones to wear the keys to the houses.
Also, the versions of the Nordic myths we hear today are based on Victor Rydbergs writings. Rydberg was misogynistic nationalist, and rewrote many of the myths so that the goddesses would be more submissive, less independent and had almost no sexual liberty (while in the original stories, they had a lot).
"Your too fat."
"I didn’t know [insert character] was black!"
"Why don’t you do more black cosplays?"
"Cosplay to your size!"
"I don’t think that looks right on you, why don’t you cosplay [insert character] instead?"
"Why is [insert character] black? They’re not black in the show."
"You shouldn’t cross-play, it looks weird on you."
"Your boobs are too big for [insert character]."
To everyone who as ever posted a comment or question like this, my answer:
I am a black plus size female cosplayer, if you don’t like it… well honestly I don’t care. The more you comment like an idiot, the more it feeds my will power to prove I’m an amazing cosplayer, not matter what you say. I may have days, or even weeks when I feel down about myself, but that will never stop me from doing what I love. I may have large boobs, chubby stomach, double chin, hair on my face, dark spots around my face and body, and a flat butt, but I rock any cosplay I put on. So grow up, and get out of my face. <3
I really like you C:
Petition: Hong Kong Government: Legislate a ban on the sale and possession of shark fin in Hong Kong.
From Honduras to New Caledonia, from the Bahamas to the Maldives, the people have spoken. And governments have listened. Now is the time for Hong Kong to wake up! The public is ready. The business sector is behind us. Now is the time for a total sale and possession ban on shark fin in Hong Kong. By doing so, Hong Kong will take a giant step to join the conservation efforts of numerous countries around the world who have enacted shark protection legislation. In Latin America it will join Honduras. In the United States it will join California, New York, Hawaii, Washington, Maryland, Delaware and Oregon. In the Pacific region it will join Palau, Tokelau, Marshall Islands, French Polynesia, Cook Islands, American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands and New Caledonia. Even China has agreed to stop serving shark fin soup at official banquets, to take effect in the next year or two.
Banning shark fin from the streets of Hong Kong will be the single most important marine conservation achievement of the year. It will be an important step towards protecting the health of our oceans. It will also remove the stain on Hong Kong’s reputation as a world-class tourism hub.
This petition is endorsed by: Shark Rescue
BALLSIEST. PETITION. EVER.
IF THERE WAS EVER A HEAD TO THIS DRAGON - THERE IT IS.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT A HUGE DIFFERENCE THIS WOULD MAKE??? WITHOUT THE ISSUE OF SHARK FIN SOUP WE COULD CONCENTRATE ON THE ISSUE OF BYCATCH AND SOLVE THIS ISSUE PERMANENTLY.
Save sharks! They are so important.please sign the petition guys
Its a fucking blood bath! Sign this petition you guys!
I’m crying……..SAVE THE SHARKS PLEASE. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE.
FUCK THIS. Please sign this. :’(

Awww, you tried so hard, but unfortunately I can’t hear you over the sound of my debt-free college degree and massive disposable income.
If you’re not jealous you’re lying or your parents paid for college
