“Asexuality: Despite the Les Yay below, the movie version of Momoko has her leaning very strongly in this direction. Truth in Television to some extent, sinceLolita fashion deliberately de-emphasizes sexuality.”
THE MOVIE VERSION OF MOMOKO HAS A STRONG AVERSION TO PHYSICAL EXPRESSIONS OF GENITAL SEXUALITY, SURROUNDED BY A LIFELONG EXPERIENCE OF HETEROSEXUAL ASSAULTS, IMPREGNATIONS, AND GENERALLY DISTASTEFUL DEBAUCHERY. WHILE FULLY ACKNOWLEDGING THE KEY ROLE OF OPPOSITE-SEX LOVE AFFAIRS IN ROCOCO FRANCE, SHE CHOOSES TO OMIT THESE ELEMENTS FROM HER FANTASY LIFESTYLE
AS SHE OBSESSIVELY STITCHES FOR ICHIGO, “SHE SAID” PLAYS IN THE BACKGROUND. THOUGH THESE JAPANESE-PENNED ENGLISH-LANGUAGED GERMAN-TRANSCRIBED LYRICS ARE DIFFICULT TO PARSE IN PLACES, THERE IS A CLEAR DICHOTOMY BETWEEN AN INITIAL DECEPTIVE LONELINESS (INCLUDING A CLOSET, ITS LGBT USAGE WELL-KNOWN IN JAPAN FOR YEARS BEFORE THE FILM’S RELEASE) AND A TRANSFORMED STATE OF FULFILLING COMPANIONSHIP.

mopsthefloors replied to your post “mopsthefloors replied to your post “straight boy ishimaru is here and…”who would be ishimaru’s primary love interest if he were straight!ishimaru???? would he be like souda and focus on being creepy towards only one girl or would he not be so descerning. i must kno
I Dont Know. Mmmaybe hed have a strange thing for celes. or aoi. i could see one of the two. but it wouldnt quite be souda-esque more strange uncomfortable jokes and less actively pursuing.
AU where Ishimaru and Yamada are rivals for Celeste’s love instead of Alter Ego??? I could see that going in a really creepy direction butSource: straightishimaru

i am seeing a whole lot of concern about the mental health of white people who are staying silent about ferguson, and virtually none (at least not from white folks) about the mental health of the residents of ferguson, and other black people who do not have the privilege to ever opt out of this…
can we not use cries of ableism to further perpetuate white supremacy
can we not use the concept of mental illness to obscure the fact that the vast majority of white people who are ignoring this are not doing so because they will be triggered, but because of deeply embedded antiblack racism and apathy that is ENDEMIC to the institution of white supremacy.
what these posts are accomplishing is allowing white people off the hook and telling them they don’t need to interrogate WHY they feel justified in ignoring all of this. these posts encourage white people to place their needs above those of black people.
it is one thing to be triggered - it is another altogether to feel anxious or upset. there is at least one post going around that is specifically targeting people who are triggered and that is not okay - but i’m not referring to that post. i’m referring to the rest of the posts which coddle white people and tell them it’s perfectly acceptable to avoid everything ferguson-related if it makes them anxious. guess what: IT’S NORMAL to feel anxious and upset about what’s happening! i’d be more suspicious of someone who isn’t extremely uncomfortable about what’s going on. that’s the fucking point.
by all means, do what you need to do, but stop hijacking posts about white apathy with your accusations of ableism. any conversations about mental health and ableism MUST center on the needs of the marginalized if they are to be useful in antiracist discourse; if you are only interested in protecting the mental health of the oppressors then congratulations, you are part of the problem.
note: do not under any circumstances use this post to hurt people with ptsd who need to blacklist violence for their own safety - that is NOT what this post is about.
