What is this ahistorical bullshit?
The “Greeks”, aka in this instance the wealthy Athenians, thought that women were literal vessels for creating children.They didn’t even marry Women, they usually married 13 year old girls, cause wealthy Athenians didn’t marry until they were in their 40s and didn’t marry for love, they married for reproduction and to get a head domestic servant in the bargain.Which is ironic given that OP acts like the dudes having sex with other dudes, again there was no such identity of homosexual back then, was romantic and marginalized and that so-called dominant heterosexuals were greedy and married only for reproduction, when in reality it was the wealthy dudes who both married for reproduction and had sex with other rich dudes all while degrading the Greek peasants who did marry for love and had children.
There were no such thing as hetero or homosexuals, those words were invented in the 20th century. They didn’t view sex differently depending on who they had it with because one wasn’t “dominant”. The dominant sex culture was wealthy dudes fucking each other and raping boy sex slaves and making ignorant people today think they were so high-minded and progressive for doing it. You people are literally using wealthy rapists and misogynists as ahistorical propaganda for social justice and it is disgusting and embarrassing.
You could also read the op’s logic in the misogynistic light of “fucking breeders, ammi right?”
The Stardust Crusaders anime would probably be 2000x better if they included Araki’s comments from the manga in it. Jotaro and DIO all bloody and ready to wreck each other’s shit, and then you see a picture of Araki while he reads something like:
"I stepped on a dry leaf on my way to work today, and it shattered in the ground. It reminded me of that one time I broke my mother’s china when I was a kid and I had to deliver letters to pay it off. I felt bad for the leaf so I kicked it in the grass and apologized to it shortly after. Porcelain can break, but life is short and sweet so we should respect it."
Look, if you can speak or read even a little bit of Japanese, it’s really hard to Not Know that Japanese artists really don’t like having their art reposted from Twitter or Pixiv. If you don’t speak or read Japanese, most of them have little notes on their…
I’m going to be deviating a little bit from this so I apologize in advance.
"Not everything has to be in one place" is extremely important. If you can enjoy an artist’s work in an environment that makes them feel safe, please do that.
I’ve noticed a trend lately amongst my Japanese artist friends pixivs where instead of writing “please do not reprint my work” it has become “please stop asking me for permission”.
Many of them have voiced their concerns over English speakers asking to use their art and they have asked if “there’s some sort of master website saying if you send this copypasta everything will be fine”.
Now imagine getting in your ask box 15 exact same messages coming from different people asking if they can use your fic on their own blog, outside of your comfort zone because you can’t take it down after someone uses it. It’s creepy!!!!
Asking for permission is great but there are bigger repercussions than you think when everyone suddenly thinks it’ll be ok as long as you provide credit.
You can run a fandom blog without fanart you took from someone else. Like other people have mentioned, reblog from artists who have tumblr! Link to their pixiv (without art)!
Use the tweet or like function on the actual artwork on pixiv and share it or just retweet their work on twitter! One of the artists I follow tweeted a few days ago that she sometimes sees non-Japanese people share her work from pixiv (via tweet function) and how glad it makes her and this is a feeling that I think we can all understand.
I get really sad when I see my Japanese friends fret over how to say no to a person who has asked for permission so many times that they feel both afraid and frustrated but no longer know how to say no since they have already said yes once.
You can enjoy their work and share it without putting it on your blog and many artists would love and appreciate that you do this!!!!!!!!!!!!
