I believe in fantasies invisible to me

Another GIF from the Korra season 3 finale. 
More beautiful animation- I love how she twists as she takes off that rock pillars’ top. 
There were some insane  awesome shots in both episodes and great choreography for the action sequences.

This whole action exterior sequence between Korra and Zaheer is co-executive producer Joaquim Dos Santos’ storyboarding/fight choreography masterpiece, especially the 20-plus-second continuous flying shot. It was a herculean undertaking, and he had some help cleaning up a few of the scenes by Owen Sullivan (on this one) and Shaun O’Neil. If you didn’t already know it, Joaquim is a force of nature when it comes to action animation!

Domestic animals really are the ultimate victims. Labrador retrievers, spotted bunnies and ginger-striped cats are as man-made as wooden furniture and farming tools.  They’re also just as ubiquitous, and just as capable of being exploited and damaged. However, since they suffer and feel pain, they trigger empathy. And that’s what makes this story so powerful. These are living, suffering animals become objects, but because they lack human self-awareness and reasoning capacity, they don’t know that they’re objects. And we can feel 100% guilty, because its not like they’re people.  People who may have made some bad decisions or done some bad things that lead to their becoming mere objects to be exploited. Dozens of people die horribly in this comic, yet the biggest tragedy becomes the three animals at the center of it all. They are completely innocent creatures. And we are horrible people.(This is regarding Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely’s comic miniseries We3, which I just finished, and recommend reading if you can stomach a lot of gore and animal cruelty. This scan was not done by me.)

Anonymous said: Regarding the whole feminism debacle, don't you think that a website like Cracked should probably not take sides on issues like this and begin alienating fans?

[Speaking on behalf of myself and not Cracked-at-Large, the policies and shape of which are not under my sole jurisdiction.]

I’m not talking/thinking about every sub-faction of feminism and every misguided protest or action that has resulted from a misinterpretation OF feminism, because feminism is such a huge thing and, as Soren pointed out, not everyone is going to be getting it right, all the time. There will be feminist spin-off groups that don’t quite grasp the message, there will be groups that pervert and distort it for their own agenda, and there will be groups that go overboard and so on, but that is true of literally every movement (civil rights-related, political, religious or otherwise) in the history of time.

I’m by no means an expert, which is why I’m trying to learn, but what I think about when I talk about feminism is what I remember being articulated to me by my sisters-in-law and what I saw/see embodied by my Mom’s example (and my Dad’s, for that matter), and it’s a really simple and clear message to me: Equal political, economic and social rights for men and women. There are smaller and more specific aspects of this broader conversation that are a particular focus of mine (representation in fiction/pop culture, educating people to help make an America where a woman can walk down the street at night feeling exactly as safe as I do, every night of my freaking life [which is to say, very]), but the core remains the same:  Equality where it doesn’t currently exist.

So, when you talk about “taking sides,” my knee-jerk response is, uh, what’s your side? I’m not trying to be glib here. I could be wrong but, according to my slow, caveman brain, if my side is equality for men and women then the other side must be inequality, right? And if that’s the case, then, no, I don’t feel any responsibility to give the other side representation in my writing. There’s the potential that in doing so I’ll be alienating readers that either want men to have more rights than women or women to have more rights than men, but that’s a risk I’m absolutely fine with.
