I wonder if Gamagoori’s crush on Mako was intended to humanize him a little more so that we could accept him becoming one of the good guys? This is the character who, in the first five minutes of the show, killed a kid who stole a goku uniform (after taunting him into putting it on and attacking, which to me said he wanted the excuse to use lethal force), then hung up his naked corpse as a warning to other students.
Gamagoori is the only character other than Nui to have a confirmed on-screen kill, even with all the carnage we see every episode.
His later appearances try very hard to portray him as an honorable man (defending the kid at his old school, being willing to die rather than fail Satsuki), and then we have the aforementioned crush on Mako that makes this mountain of a man into a hopeless schoolboy.
I guess I’m just having a harder time than most getting past those first five minutes of the show.
gamagoori is your tipical adolescent entering young adulthood who needs to overcompensate all the time and acts high and all mighty in front of those he wants respect from.
rewatch the episode with the car and the episode where he meets the mankanshokus, plus the episode where he saves mako and you’ll see they’ve tried to humanize him more than with the whole gamako deal.
gamagoori needs to yell all the time to assert his point, he is over dramatic, he SPUN HIS CAR IN THE MIDDLE OF A FIGHT BECAUSE HE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A COOL WAY TO EVADE THE ATTACKS.
gamagoori tries too hard sometimes, i can’t see him as the stoic stern character i was sold in the first episode tbh.
like seriously i forgot he actually killed that guy man haha.
fucking gamachan keep losing
(that’s my /PERSONAL
/ opinion though)
long talk under the cut and spoilers for the show
I always wondered if it was outright stated anywhere that the student was killed rather than his hanging (possibly alive) being further punishment. He was alive when Gamagoori took back the uniform (given his wheezing sounds), and someone hung him up as an obvious warning and dubbed him a ‘naked pig’ and that ‘justice was served’. I might have missed something being more heavily implied as to the student’s death but I guess my reaction was that he was hung there while still being alive, declothing him and hanging him up as an example. With the cartoony feel of the show, it’s pretty hard to define what is actually life-threatening and what isn’t. The characters do get kicked around a lot and always seem to get back up from the impossible.
If the student was actually dead then I would have to defer to the reaction of the sight of his corpse from Ryuuko herself, who was amused by the seriousness/danger levels of entering the school. Since she didn’t take seeing a dead student all that seriously and didn’t really act appalled, I think it’s kind of the case the audience was supposed to follow her lead.
It’s hard for me to hold that first scene against best boy Gamagoori after all we know of him now anyways. The scene needed to make a statement about the school, its strictness and its enforcers. But as most things turned out, it wasn’t all that it seemed. I think adding Gamako was more of a way to bring out that quirky side to Gamagoori. I guess you could say it was humanizing, but only in that we were allowed a view of another side of Gamagoori that was already there. He just hadn’t had a reason to how it yet. That side wasn’t created for Mako, but brought out through interactions with her.
tl;dr Gamagoori still best boy. thank you
In episode 17 the kid is seen in the audience when they hand out the ceremonial uniforms. About 8 minutes in, bottom left. Normally I’d say it’s just filling crowds but they made the no-stars all look different. Boyfriend proposed it’s a symbolic “execution” made to humiliate and be painful rather than actually kill. (Even if it’s not by design it’s believable enough for peace of mind.)
I finally saw it. I finally saw somebody argue that shipping one ship over a another happened to be misogynistic.
They don’t even hide the fact
He’s obviously got a thauma with women because of what that girl did to him. I can understand that. He just had problems directing his hate.
But he’s trying to correct it. He actually wants to be able to love women despite of what that one girl did (btw, that girl didn’t exactly treat him well, so I can see why he’d hate her).
It is not the same as an MRA. An MRA just hates women for being women… He’s like a very simple person who has troubles figuring out something as easy as: if a dog bites you, doesn’t mean every dog will bite you.
Don’t blame everything on MRA, patriarchy and sexism, or we’ll make a fool of ourselves, and lose any argument.
THIS WAS POSTED IN R/MENSRIGHTS
Lol I’m a female MRA. Clearly I just hate women for being women
OP doesn’t understand how reddit works. It’s entirely possible this guy never posted in r/mensrights before, but guessed the mras in the subreddit would be able to help him fix his misogyny (or find a way around it, to be fair).
Tbh, this guy has a better reason for hating women than most of the reasons given for hating men I see on this damn site. A guy sits with his knees too spread out and gets tagged by dozens of posters as #ihatemen.
The details for why this is consider “a-okay” are really disgusting. Time to take action and make some noise, folks. This is a serious and dangerous issue.
(I first came across this article on facebook, when guys I know were posting it and high-fiving each other about it)
I believe the top comment on this article sums up my thoughts quite well:
"If it’s legal for him to take an upskirt shot, I fully expect it to be legal when I bash his head in for it."
That’s what is so terrifying about this. Imagine if a woman did fight back by pushing a man away from her, or knocking the camera out of his hand, shattering it on the ground. She would probably face jail time or have to pay a huge settlement, because she defended herself against a man who was “legally” taking upskirt photos of her. It’s repulsive and outrageous.
This is a huge slap in the face to women, because it’s telling us that it’s legal to violate us, and that we just need to sit there and take it.
This article literally made me face palm and loudly scream. Isn’t there a law against taking photos of people without their knowledge? Like, I don’t understand how you get away with this, with not even a minor charge of invasion of privacy or something.
Someone explain the backwards ass logic here, cause I’m in comm law, and this is the most backasswards case I’ve ever heard. That lawyer must have rocked.
Way to be Mass. Way to be.
Btw, this verdict was given by a female judge.
I’ve learned a lot about the law. The biggest thing I’ve learned is particulars. Literally, lawyers and judges can do whatever they want as long as the prove particulars.
The judge has to follow what they think is lawful and unlawful, and if there is no clause about this shit currently, then their hands are kinda tied.
If this is as presented, that people can film up skirts without punishment, that’s fucked up. But I take issue with this:
“This is a huge slap in the face to women, because it’s telling us that it’s legal to violate us, and that we just need to sit there and take it.”
If this is true, men in skirts or kilts would be affected by this too. While it’ll primarily affect women, it’ll affect men too.
Edit: http://darkpuck.tumblr.com/post/80753393992 Whelp. Sounds like it was a ruling to intentionally point out the loophole and how fucked up it was.
how many followers do you have huh? you wanna fight?
i have 629 BUT YEAH I’M READY FOR THE FIGHTINGS
That’s it? Wtf? Why do you have so few followers?
I HAVE 1503
I lost at least 5 tonight
Between the four of my blogs i have something like 4.3k followers so idk, I’m honestly confused when great blogs have less than 1k who should have tons.
I can’t even imagine having 100 or so for more than a few days. Isn’t it a lot of pressure?
Gaston really is the most terrifying Disney villain because he could be anyone in the world.
For reals like anytime a woman goes to a library people shoo her away.
It’s not like most librarians and teachers in the West are women or anything.
More evidence for my theory that tumblrfems will believe anything as long as it props up their victim complex.
The most interesting thing about this, to me, is that we’re supposed to agree with Belle. Gaston, the villain, says women shouldn’t be reading and Beast, the love interest, gives her a whole library of books. One of the later versions of the movie added a scene where Belle bonds with the Beast over teaching him to read. Every scene involving Belle’s reading is framed as a positive scene.
This all suggests the authors agree with Belle. This wasn’t exactly protested widely at the time of release (or any time since) so there’s no reason to think it’s a counter-cultural belief. Either that or the writers were throwing feminists a bone… which would mean society at large agrees with feminists on this.
This scene in particular is one where we’re being pushed to think Gaston is bad. In order for that push to work, it requires Gaston’s thinking to be seen as wrong.
Another potential way feminists are hurting rape victims: Asking a woman what she was wearing may give a clue as to who her rapist was, if a stranger. The numbers seem to suggest that most stranger rapes are by serial rapists, rapists who often have a type. Several distinct rapes might not seem related until you find out each woman was wearing a cross necklace, for example. While probably not the usual reason people ask, forbidding the question only takes away the possibility to use it.
THIS IS AN EXCUSE. RAPE IS NEVER OK REGARDLESS OF EXTENUATING CIRCUMSTANCES.
How did you turn “we want to catch rapists and this might give us an edge” into “we think rape is okay”? How is that even possible? Are you joking? Are you a parody?
All I can think of is you saw “asking [her] what she was wearing” and didn’t read the rest. The whole point was that sometimes asking what somebody was wearing can end up getting the victim justice, get other victims of the same rapist justice, and prevent future rapes by catching the rapist! How can wanting every tool to help catch rapists be available be saying rape is okay?
Hi, I love this blog and this is my first time submitting off anon but this is just my two cents on dress codes because I think they’re pretty important, actually: My school has a very restrictive dress code for a public school, and the punishment is humiliating (long story short, it lets everyone know you’ve been dress coded and makes you stand out. it’s disgusting and having had it happen to me I was in tears).
The code itself is questionable (shoulders may not be exposed, for example [because they’re aren’t fucking billions of shoulders in this world, literally]) but all the rules apply to all the students. The major issue is how our dress code is carried out. I’ve never seen male students punished (again, it’s a very visible thing, being dress coded), and if they are, it’s for a hat violation — something that can come off without punishment.
The girls are the ones our administration watches. Last semester they literally sent Assistant Principals to the classrooms (some of which were male APs, by the way) to make girls stand in front of all their classmates and spot check hems. It’s disgusting and that is what’s wrong.
tl;dr Dress codes aren’t the issue. The way they’re enforced are.
I totally agree. In my school it was the opposite way. The most standout example I can remember is when the principal chastised a guy for wearing a sleeveless shirt… then within a minute (as the class was walking down the hall) she complimented a gal for her fancy sleeveless shirt. It definitely depends on how the rules are dealt with and can be worse for girls OR boys depending on the individual school.
A generous fuck-ton of muscular male abdomen references.
* As always with large images, you gotta reverse-image search ‘em to find the larger size. Sorry about that. It’s the most helpful reference you will find on abs, so far, so I encourage you to search it.
The reason why some people have issues with abs is because, most of the time, the person who’s ripped has 0% fat on ‘em, so it looks ridiculously artificial. You gotta contrast the muscle in a very precise and concise way, and it can look fake, depending on the lighting and corporeal structure of the circumstance. And I say that cautiously, as by “fake” I don’t mean they look disproportionate; it just sometimes doesn’t look like how skin and muscle should appear. (And I know there are some repeated images in this post, but since it’s about something specific, I thought it’d be helpful to have ‘em conglomerated in one place.)

"Women’s boobs don’t work that way" well neither do men’s abs. Definitely resources to log away if you’ve ever complained about botched anatomy.
I thought this was going to be really dumb and then it wasn’t
The implication that she decides everything in the relationship is rubbing me the wrong way. I know what it’s supposed to be talking about but there’s a cringing feeling nobody would be cheering this on if a gender flipped version was “He makes the rules.”
