One of the things that’s always been wonderful about Sailor Moon isn’t just that it has a variety of female characters with loads of different relationships between them (though, that is indeed wonderful to have!) but that also they’re inspired by other women.
This is one of the smaller ways, as we only briefly see Ami’s mother much later in the series, but it’s still important to Ami’s characterization, that she wants to be a doctor like her mother. Her mother inspires her and Ami works so damn hard to live up to that role and she’ll be able to do it, she’ll be able to balance her dream and her future, both of which are inspired by and affected by other women.
But also is Usagi’s reaction, where she hears that Ami is studying to be a doctor, and her immediate response isn’t to say that’s going to be really hard for a girl or to express distaste at the idea because it involves a lot of studying. Instead, it’s a small moment, but it says loads about how Usagi sees Ami’s dream to become a doctor like her mother—THAT’S SO COOL. It’s something to admire, that another girl was inspired by her mother to be a doctor.
It’s such a small moment, such a throwaway moment, but it still means a lot to me, because Ami’s entire life is inspired by her mother, because she WANTS to live up to her mother’s image. MOTHERS AND DAUGHTERS, GODDAMN, I AM HERE FOR THAT.

He’s also my cousin and he put everything he had into this film and it’s absolutely draining everything he has and he’s super depressed that a pledge to make potato salad is doing exceptionally well while he hasn’t even reached 10% of his goal.
Please reblog to share and contribute if you can. There’s not much time left and he’s so close to finishing the film. All he needs now is to meet the funds needed for post production.
I reblogged this 3 hours ago and they’ve only raised $1-200 more dollars…
Supposedly invented by the Chinese, there is an ancient form of torture that is nothing more than cold, tiny drops falling upon a person’s forehead.
On its own, a single drop is nothing. It falls upon the brow making a tiny splash. It doesn’t hurt. No real harm comes from it.
In multitudes, the drops are still fairly harmless. Other than a damp forehead, there really is no cause for concern.
The key to the torture is being restrained. You cannot move. You must feel each drop. You have lost all control over stopping these drops of water from splashing on your forehead.
It still doesn’t seem like that big of a deal. But person after person, time and time again—would completely unravel psychologically. They all had a breaking point where each drop turned into a horror. Building and building until all sense of sanity was completely lost.
"It was just a joke, quit being so sensitive."
"They used the wrong pronoun, big deal."
"So your parents don’t understand, it could be worse."
Day after day. Drop after drop. It builds up. A single instance on its own is no big deal. A few drops, not a problem. But when you are restrained, when you cannot escape the drops, when it is unending—these drops can be agony.
People aren’t sensitive because they can’t take a joke. Because they can’t take being misgendered one time. Because they lack a thick skin.
People are sensitive because the drops are unending and they have no escape from them.
You are only seeing the tiny, harmless, single drop hitting these so-called “sensitive” people. You are failing to see the thousands of drops endured before that. You are failing to see the restraints that make them inescapable.

If you feel you don’t really respect yourself then take a quick look at the list below and try to makes some changes in your daily life.
1. Ask yourself: “What does it mean to respect someone?” We have different ideas about the qualities and traits that are worthy…
Preview: The Ninja in Smokescreen color scheme.
Introducing Volante Design’s Unifit cut. Unlike our other garments to date, the Ninja will be made in a single cut that is designed based on our existing size charts that will fit people of all genders.
We call this cut Unifit as opposed to “unisex” because the term unisex as it is currently defined is a shape that is designed to be suitable for both sexes, and suitable just doesn’t cut it for us.
The Ninja will be available in 10 sizes that will cover the measurements of our XS women’s to our 3XL men’s sizes, with some overlap in the middle. This is made possible by the side panels of the Ninja being entirely a stretch cotton. In the photos above Willow is wearing a ninja of the same cut as Enzo, albeit two unifit sizes smaller.
We are aiming to launch pre-orders for the Ninja tomorrow, July 2nd, with two additional color schemes.
Until then, stay awesome.
