My name is Laura, I dabble in acting, singing, horrible dancing, improv and other forms of artistic medium.

“Historically speaking, animating female characters are really, really difficult, ’cause they have to go through these range of emotions, but they’re very, very — you have to keep them pretty and they’re very sensitive to — you can get them off a model very quickly. So, having a film with two hero female characters was really tough, and having them both in the scene and look very different if they’re echoing the same expression; that Elsa looking angry looks different from Anna being angry.” — Lino Disalvo on animating Frozen, explaining (essentially) why they removed all the female supporting characters and replaced them with men. [[edited for accuracy]]

Yeah, I call bullshit.

don’t blame women because you’re a shitty animator

so basically what you’re saying is

"it was too harddddddd I didn’t wannaaaaaa."

"i dont care enough about women to animate them like reeeaaal peopleeee"

No. You don’t understand. You’re all ignorant fuckwads. Let me explain you a thing. Female faces? They’re softer. As in regardless of bone structure their faces are SOFT looking. Because of this, light bends differently and catches angles differently and the what not. Its harder to animate/draw/paint the female form, as any artist. It’s the same issue with babies- the SOFTNESS of the figure makes it harder to art them. And now I’m done with this tangent flies into the sun.

Excuse me?

image

Also untrue. 

image

As evidenced by all of these guys with soft faces

image

none of whom are impressed by your sexist bullshit

image

female skin is NOT different from male skin, biologically

image

female skin isn’t softer, you’re just trained to think of it that way by media and our societal expectation that women use make-up to MAKE their skin look softer, which has not been done all throughout history and thus doesn’t actually make any sense in a movie set in a historical time period when nobody expected anybody to have flawless skin

image

the problem isn’t animating women

image

the problem is animating women to look like an ideal while still keeping them diverse

image

image

If animators treated women like humans beings they wouldn’t have this problem

image

image

image

image

image

look at all of these soft faces

image

Don’t even fucking talk to me about Kadaj

image

image

image

This gifset is making you look as sexist as you are, say cheese!

image

image

image

Look at Shrek and Fiona next to each other

image

It doesn’t matter if they’re humans or ogres

image

their skin is animated exactly the same

image

Same for Lem and Neera

image

OH WOW HER SKIN IS SO MUCH SOFTER AND MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN HIS are you fucking kidding me with this

image

Basically fuck you

harassment isn’t a compliment.  know the difference.

Characterization done right.

Steve Rogers in a single gif.

We joke about Steve’s patriotism as his strong suit, but his actual strength was his sense of moral right. His whole philosophy is summed up in the line “I don’t like bullies” in the first movie. Steve loves his country. He loves it enough to be at the front of the line trying to fix what he sees as moral wrong in it.

Females grow pubic hair

Not all labias are symmetrical

Big clitorises are not unnatural

Vaginal secretions exist outside of sexual arousal

These secretions have a smell

Some more pungent than others

The female reproductive system is not dirty

The female body can be hairy and a bit smelly and it will appear different for everyone

And that’s okay

To suggest that one’s belly, body hair or tattoo is ‘distasteful’ and should therefore be covered in the name of etiquette is the very worst sort of body fascism. If your children are traumatised by the sight of a fat person in a bikini, a bit of cellulite or a caesarean scar, then may I tentatively suggest that you aren’t raising them correctly. If seeing someone hairy wearing something skimpy renders you ‘unable to eat your lunch’ then I’m afraid my diagnosis of the problem is with your brain, not their body.
