if you are under 18:
- your nudes are child pornography
- people you send them to can be charged with possession of child pornography
- you can be charged with distribution of child pornography
- don’t take nudes
This is not about body shaming, this is not about ‘telling you what to do with your sexuality’ this is literally a federal crime don’t fuck with the law okay.
Anonymous said: Can you explain to me why everyone hates dubs so much? I know there's a lot of dubs that aren't very well done and lots people say the Japanese voice acting is better but if you're watching subbed it's not like you can understand it anyways. I personally kinda like dubs because its nice to not have to use 100% of my focus it's easier watch but That seems to be a fairly unheard of opinion. It just seems everyone hates on dubs and I just don't get why
I’ll admit it…this is a hipster thing. For the first 10 years I watched anime (the 1990s) subbed was usually the only option. When dubs existed they were almost invariably bad. So I got used to it being one way…now, watching dubbed anime just feels wrong…it feels phony to me. It’s hard to articulate, but I know it’s irrational because even Avatar seems like it should have subtitles even though it’s an American show.
So I recognize that this is irrational, but it’s not something that I think decreases my or other people’s happiness…so I shall remain firmly a lover of subtitled anime.
Avatar always seemed natural to me in English. But Japanese anime doesn’t.
I obviously can’t speak with precision about how good the voice-acting in Japanese is, because I don’t know the exact tones and pacing Japanese uses. But I can tell you that, as someone who speaks multiple languages and listens to languages she doesn’t understand more than once in a blue moon, subbed anime just sounds better to my ears than the English. It seems like the voice actors put more effort into it, like they do it with less phoniness, like they’re better at it, if they’re the original Japanese VA’s. The original Japanese dub might sound silly to native Japanese speakers, but I perceive it to be quite professional and well-done.
I love it when younger girls look up to older girls as role models and heroes. I love it when older girls enthusiastically support and protect younger girls. I love it when girls are psyched about the skills and accomplishments of other girls, I love it when girls compliment each other, take care of each other, encourage each other. I love it when girls realize how awesome and important they are. I love it when girls are fuckin’ pumped about girls.
