"Nope", the anime.
Based on that hilarious text post.
i feel like this dress is sending a message but I’m not sure what it is
We DO need criticism of female characters but we also need support
And you can’t give real criticism if you’re blinded by your biases, if a character trait you’d love on a male character is a dealbreaker for a female one
If a character is never JUST a love interest or JUST there for sex appeal as a man, then spend a few minutes thinking about it before you put that label on a female character (why is Tauriel JUST a love interest for Kili instead of Kili being JUST a love interest for her?)
Accept that you’re coming from a place of bias too and figure out what those are.

Wow this is not what I needed to see first thing in the morning. Ow my heart.
Confession: I’m like SUPER INTERESTED in dwarf/elf romance. Cmon, size difference/odd couples, what’s not to love? Only, I’d be MORE into it if they were both just a little less human-looking. Don’t give me this sexy-dwarf BS - they would be into each other BECAUSE they are so different. I think elves and dwarves just have a huge secret attraction for each other that it is just kind of taboo to mention. So they take it out by being mean to each other.
This was gonna be Tauriel and Kili (only Kili is a lady dwarf, as is my headcanon), but it could also be Legolas and Gimli. I mean, they’re both from races with very little sexual dimorphism, so they could be any combination of sex/gender you can think of with no visible difference. They’re going to build a combination cave house with treehouse tower so they can both be in their element and live happily ever after.
#I KNOW I’VE ALREADY LOST MY SHIT IN TAGS ABOUT THIS SCENE BUT#LAST TIME IT WAS ONLY THE LEGOLAS AND GIMLI BITS AND TBH I LIKE #FORGOT???? #ABOUT HOW IT’S ARAGORN THAT HAS TO KNOCK LEGOLAS’S BOW DOWN #AND BE LIKE ‘CHILL BRO’ #and it just makes me wonder #how many times poor aragorn has had to get in the middle of #a) legolas losing his shit because someone threatened gimli #b) gimli losing his shit because someone threatened legolas and #c) LEGOLAS AND GIMLI THREATENING EACH OTHER #like seriously how many fires do you think aragorn has stared into mournfully #while legolas and gimli sniped at each other in that we’re-arguing-totally-arguing-not-flirting-at-all #way they have #how many times has aragorn stepped into the middle of a barfight-to-be #to be like ’legolas that guy wasn’t calling gimli pint-sized he was ORDERING A PINT please say some soothing elvish words to your tits man’ #or #’gimli it was a blonde joke they weren’t talking about legolas specifically PUT THE AXE DOWN OH MY GOD’ #like seriously #after all that time traveling with them kinging must be such a relief #all these years aragorn dodged his destiny #but now that it’s here he’s like #oh. diplomacy. i can do this. #lucky thing i was trained by THE WORST PEOPLE I KNOW in diffusing NEEDLESSLY TENSE SITUATIONS
- I have been playing Dragon Age: Origins and just being carried away by a wave of enthusiam because IT’S GREAT IT’S SO GREAT

- I didn’t really do my last year’s new resolutions. OTL
Otomege pet peeve: When your love interest asks you what you want to do and you get these choices:
- I don’t know!
- What do you want to do?
- I am a real person with an opinion.
and #3 gives you the lowest affection result. Don’t ask me if you don’t want to know, jackass.
