Know the fucking difference.
Feminism is a good thing. Some people (a loud minority of people really) who think they’re feminists are bordering on misandrists - that’s what gives feminism a bad name. They’re not feminists if they put down men while bringing up women. People who hate the feminist movement because it puts down men don’t hate feminism - they hate misandry.
This is actually great to know. I had such a negative look on feminists (even as a woman) and it was because of the misandrists. Not the feminists.
So thank you for sharing.
Varda went forth from the council, and she looked out from the height of Taniquetil, and beheld the darkness of Middle-earth beneath the innumerable stars, faint and far. Then she began a great labour, greatest of all the works of the Valar since their coming into Arda. She took the silver dews from the vats of Telperion, and therewith she made new stars and brighter against the coming of the Firstborn.

so here’s why i like rwby despite it having a countless number of flaws:
- it’s made by a very small team of people
- they actually learn from their mistakes
- as a result season 2 is literally blowing season 1 out of the water in terms of improvement
- IT’S A SHOW ABOUT GIRLS
- STRONG GIRLS
- SELF-RELIANT GIRLS WHO ARE RESPECTED AND ARE SEEN AS STRONG REGARDLESS OF THEIR GENDER IDENTITY
- THAT SHIT IS IMPORTANT
- the soundtrack is really REALLY good
- also the creators are very aware of their fanbase and they are very considerate towards us
- they literally print out fanart sometimes and hang it above their desks
- the people who make it love what they do
i know rwby has a lot wrong with it, but at the rate it’s picking up and getting better i still have a lot of faith in it as a series
