THIS REFEREE IS SO BIASED WHAT THE HELL

theurbanchica:

//whenever they do specials about the samurai on history channel, nat geo, etc., they fail to mention the onna-bugeisha (女武芸者?)! these female warriors belonged to the japanese upper class- many were wives, widows, daughters, and rebels who answered the call of duty by engaging in battle, commonly alongside samurai men.
they were members of the bushi (samurai) class in feudal japan and were trained in the use of weapons to protect their household, family, and honor in times of war. they are sometimes mistakenly referred to as female samurai, but this is an oversimplification and onna-bugeisha’s history precedes the samurai warrior class. significant icons such as empress jingu, tomoe gozen, nakano takeko, and hōjō masako were all onna bugeisha who had a significant impact on japan.

I really want a science fiction story where aliens come to invade earth and effortlessly wipe out humanity, only to be fought off by the wildlife.

They were expecting military resistance. They weren’t counting on bears.

GAY FOR NIAMH ANON, MEGAN HAS A GIFT FOR U

Why is femslash the smallest genre in the world of fanfiction? Why is femslash the most underrepresented relationship type by a sizeable margin? More importantly, why is it that almost all femslash writers are queer women? Male slash pairings are written by straight women, queer women, and even some men (I say “even” because men are rarer than a two dollar bill in the world of fanfiction) and they’re read by a mostly female audience. Femslash has a completely different ideology, because it’s almost exclusively written and consumed by the community it portrays. Unlike a straight girl writing about two boys having sex (and I guarantee that they’re two conventionally attractive white boys whose female love interests have been deemed either worthy of death or asexual by the fandom), femslash is written by those whose identities and personal narratives are reflected in the stories themselves. Maybe the writer of that erotic scene hasn’t had sex with a girl yet, but damn, she has thought about it a lot. That queer author writes two girls falling in love even if they’re straight in the original work because two girls falling in love means something to her and to so many people like her, and it’s important that she sees herself in a piece of media whose canon forgets she exists. One of the great frustrations of LGBTQ media is the fact that so little of our representations end up coming from LGBTQ-identified creators, and thus we see inaccurate portrayals with limited diversity. Femslash exists because we were sick of being told we didn’t exist, so we wrote ourselves into their stories. —excerpt from a very long piece I’ve been working on for autostraddle about femslash and why there’s so little of it (and why we need to make more of it NOW)
