Guess who went to the doctor yesterday!

...no, really. It was me. I know that's hard to believe and all, but seriously, guys. I went.

I got a new doctor and she is completely wonderful.

We talked about my (oh-so-long) medical history, which segwayed (segwaied? wtf?) nicely into the tests I wanted to get done that most of you know something about. WOO-WOO. We talked at length about the sterilization options and what I can do about the problems that I've been having for so long.

She's on my side, you guys.

I don't think I've ever been so happy about a doctor's visit in my life. It's so awesome. I mean, I finally feel like all that retarded "research" I did paid off. I did so much of this by myself and got all frustrated and shit, and it's like... bam. Here you go, we think that we can do something now.

Even if they can't, I partially don't care. I just don't. I don't think I've felt this hopeful about shit in so long. I know this is like... super emo-kid and I should probably start singing Fall Out Boy, but hey, I'm pretty fucking thrilled. GO MY NEW DOCTOR, YOU DESERVE A MEDAL FOR HOW AWESOMELY YOU ROCK OUT.

----

LJ-cut with images after the short rant. And you can blame superdickery.com for beginning this train of thought. I took the images from it, too.

Okay, and can we stop using Wonder Woman to "inspire" young girls? She's like... the worst fucking role model ever. Her fucking weakness is to be tied up by men. She won't un-blindfold herself because it interferes with her beautiful eyelashes. WTF? Maybe she's changed, but then, good god, promote the new one and not the old one. I don't care if retro is in style, that's like... the shittiest superheroine ever. Old comics were so amazingly sexist, with the lady superheroes constantly being tied up, applying makeup, making their male counterparts late because of something stupid, or... just being stereotypical women. How many times has Lois Lane fought off Lana in some stupid bitch battle? I mean, she like... hunts her down IN TIME to prevent Superman from falling in love with her (the "IN TIME" should be read like an announcer XD). I know that generally, Lois is seen as a bitch, but I sorta blame that on the TV show. Back in the day, she seemed to be far more... well, stereotypically feminine. Just... a little more aggressive.

And the new Marvel cover. Jesus, man, what the fuck? Were any of these characters ever the type to lay back and take it like that? Not from what I read. That, and like everyone else, African-type hair (the thick, coarse curly Afro type) doesn't magically relax for three inches and be silky-smooth. A minor complaint to me, as it's likely just done for texturing and nothing else, but it's annoying. Just like their slimey, heaving, giant bosoms.

Okay, Heroes for Hire. Tell me, why would superheroes be like that? This is fucking... I don't know, shades of hentai. The art style really reads "manga", which does lean my mind that way, but seriously. Tentacles? And they have slime dripping down them? With impossibly large breasts? Okay, not impossibly large, but improbably large. The anatomy is just... bad. Their torsos are hugely long, their arms very skinny and tiny, their hips super-wide. I get it, they're supposed to be "sexy". Can we please sell them on something else? And whose arm is back there? Unless the cat girl has three arms, it looks like a dude's. Why do I think it's a man's? Obviously, ladies don't have TEH MUSCLES: look at the other girls. (And don't tell me it's because women just "don't have muscles like men". They can if they really, really want them. Bodybuilders can be huge whether they're male or female. It just takes a lot of work.). If you want to make a softcore porn line, then make it. Don't pussyfoot around. Just make it. You know how to fix this stupid cover? Make them angry and zip up their goddamn shirts.

...also, why is a cat-burglar (the girl on the left) wearing a bell? That's just dumb.

Yes, I know this is a relatively small sample of images, pretty much all of them stolen from the same site. I think my point still stands, even if my images aren't.... vaaaaried. Some are downright funny. The information itself is from a variety of sources, some of which I can credit if anyone needs the proof besides stupid pictures :3

Man, I am so glad that it is not the 1950s.

Okay, so it's the Wasp, but look! How useless she is next to what looks like THOR!

Domestic violence is fun.

Yes. Yes, this is a good attitude. Anyone wanna be an autocrat?

Yes, a woman's place is in the home. Stay home, sweetheart. BATMAN FIGHTS ALONE (or with Robin, Butt-Sex Wonder).


Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Bitch, a woman's place is in the home. When are you gonna get that?


Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

...yeah, that's totally what I'd be thinking. How will you escape blindfolded? That's FUCKING RETARDED.


Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

ASSHATS, AHOY. This has nothing to do with my Wonder Woman thing, just... it's funny. An asshat. Literally.


Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

You're doing it wrong.


Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Now you're not!

I like how "spiders" and "alligators" rate with "long-hair music" and "Jews".


Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

This just amuses me.


I know I'm overrreacting. I know that it doesn't really matter. It has annoyed me for the past few days, that's all. This type of thing has bothered me for years, but particularly in the last few days.

Stay at home? Why? XD

If I were a girl -- with my same soul, mind, heart, et cetera -- if it were ME, and if I were a girl, I wouldn't want to be regarded as if I were a member of a "weaker sex". I wouldn't want to put on make-up, and dress up pretty, and compete with other girls over looks. I wouldn't want anyone to expect me to do an unfair portion of housework, particularly in the kitchen, solely because I'm a girl. And I especially wouldn't want to be excluded from the exciting missions that are "too dangerous." Damn you, Batman.

Well, I think you're in line with the way most girls currently feel.

And that's from like... the 50s or something, so I wouldn't get too riled up XD

Well, dispite the fact that I know I'd feel that way, I'm a complicated character whose complications are both common and perhaps negative.

If I were a girl, I wouldn't want to be regarded as weaker. But as a guy, I feel a desire to partner with a girl who has weaknesses where I have strengths so that I can feel like a protector of sorts.

If I were a girl, I wouldn't want to put on make-up, and dress up pretty, and compete with other girls over looks. But as a guy, I find myself attracted to, and easily manipulated by, girls who wear make-up, et cetera. I prefer the honesty of no make-up, and the lack of its intimidating factors. As a girl, I wouldn't want to wear it. But as a guy, I'm affected by girls who wear it.

As a girl, I wouldn't want anyone to expect me to do an unfair portion of housework, particularly in the kitchen, solely because I'm a girl. But as a guy, I love it when a woman makes a meal for me.

As a girl, I wouldn't want to be excluded from the exciting missions that are "too dangerous." But as a guy, I'd rather go into a dangerous situation than see one of the females I love get hurt.

So there are some contradictions.

Many girls feel the way you've described your "girl-self" feeling. If guy-self were to date girl-self, it sounds like she'd resent him.

As for the weaknesses part, I think a lot of people want a partner that has opposite strengths than them emotionally. And I do think that the physical strength thing can be attractive to certain people. Some girls like being protected and all that. I personally can't stand it and think it both insulting and horribly arrogant.

Makeup, well, that's a personal preference. Remember, it's not that nice to touch, it gets on stuff (and often stains it), costs money and time, and doesn't often smell that pleasant. At least, that's my opinion on it. Lots of girls can apply it lightly and nicely, and thus, you don't notice.

Why couldn't you share the job of making meals? It's always nice to have someone make food for you, especially if you're tired. Or why couldn't you cook together sometimes? Some girls freak out if you ask them to do anything in the kitchen, because they don't want to be forced into that role. I think that if you make clear that you want to share the job, and then do share the job, she'd be happy to cook for you, too.

For the last bit, I guess I wouldn't worry about it too much. There probably aren't going to be many missions and dangerous situations that sex will really affect.

Of course there are contradictions. You like the standard girl; she's attractive to you. But you wouldn't want to be her, as you think that you couldn't be happy that way. I guess I'd keep that thought exercise in mind when you find a girl you want to be with.

"If guy-self were to date girl-self, it sounds like she'd resent him."

Yeah, that's how it sounds -- but love is counter-intuitive ... I can't pry those two off of each-other.

"Some girls like being protected and all that. I personally can't stand it and think it both insulting and horribly arrogant."

*sigh* Then you'd be ideal, cuz less work in a dangerous situation.

I've been cooking since I was five. I love experimenting in the kitchen, and I enjoy seeing other people enjoy my cooking. But that neither changes nor contradicts my earlier brief statement. :)

"You like the standard girl; she's attractive to you."

There's nothing "standard" about the girls I find myself attracted to. They're usually a bit tomboyish, actually.

The girls you've described to me sound pretty... standard. There are some minor differences, but you're pretty much looking for the "girl next door" sort of thing. At least, that's how it's come off to me. There's nothing wrong with that, so please don't take offense.

Here from WFA
THAT was NOT Batman. That was an evil evil demon who took his form. Batman would never say that, he's a GOOD GUY! *whines*

Re: Here from WFA
I have no idea for the context of any of these frames, really XD

Though all three superheroes (Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman) have changed significantly over the years and tend to reflect their time. Superman, for instance, used to be a social crusader, against things like racism and the like. But you can find covers from the WWII era saying things like, "It's okay to slap a Jap - with war bonds!"

I'm so glad things have changed, aren't you? :3
