Honestly, it’s probably too much too long since you’ve heard Joshua Jackson preach the gospel of Pacey Witter.
if you'll be my bodyguard -------- i can be your long-lost pal
(Fish Eye is slumped and soaked in the rain)
Usagi (offering her umbrella): What’s wrong? (smiling sweetly at her) If you’re like that, you really won’t be qualified to be my romantic rival.
This is what I love about Sailor Moon. It repeatedly kicks the whole “women can’t be friends/break up/hate each other because they value boys way more and are ALWAYS TRYING TO STEAL EACH OTHER’S MEN AND HATING ON EACH OTHER”. Repeatedly, the Senshi put aside their differences with others and each other over boys because their compassion for other women and their friendship is stronger.
Fish Eye tried to steal Usagi’s boyfriend and was really rude about it. Usagi is jealous and territorial as hell when it comes to Mamoru. And yet, when she sees this girl is depressed, she offers her friendship regardless. She still remembers what happened, but she invokes it in the spirit of understanding. “Girl, I know you’re after my honey, but you shouldn’t look so sad, let’s bond at my place.”
Usagi never lets her jealousy and affection for Mamoru override her compassion for other people and her friendship towards other women. Petty squabbles over boys never breaks her desire to love and accept everyone around her and her bonds with other people. Friendship, compassion and the bonds of women are stronger than arguments over boys, and that’s where Sailor Moon blows so many other things out of the water, and what makes it special.
This and what follows is one of my favorite Usagi moments. There is a reason she’s my favorite of favorites.
Repeatedly, the Senshi put aside their differences with others and each other over boys because their compassion for other women and their friendship is stronger.
While yes Sailor Moon can be problematic in some other ways (no show is perfect) I hate to see it torn down in the public discourse as sexist because “they just fought about boys the whole time anyway” (actually have heard this). Like what show were you watching?
they didn’t fight ABOUT boys. they FOUGHT boys. and girls!

I am so of that disposition. I’ve been frightened of being alone for the rest of my life since I was about 21
you thought I was kidding
gotta go sexy fast
that sexy lorax is making my life
I think the thing I love about them most is that literally not a single one of them is remotely sexy. Like, okay, I’ve literally written lorax-pastiche fisting (because I love Bethy and want her to be happy), and my dash REGULARLY has pony- and puppet-themed smut (thnx Dirk), so it’s not the subject matter that’s the problem here. It’s that these are extremely silly outfits that are neither funny enough to be amusing (except in the ways that they end up being so) nor sexy enough to be hot.
Wait. Under standard heteronormative assumptions… these are costumes that are supposed to be arousing for me?
Um. Hey, listen, uh, costume designers? Look. Don’t want to harsh your mellow or anything, but… WHAT THE FUCK MAN? I clocked up hundreds of sonic the hedgehog gameplay hours without thinking “If only my girlfriend would dress up as him”. The Lorax? Seriously? I speak for the awkward erections? And what the fuck is that dinosaur?
Ernie and Bert? Sexy Ernie and Bert? I mean, really? Sexy you could do…WITHOUT THE DECAPITATED SKULLS OF THE FALLEN HEROES OF SESAME STREET. All I see is a murdered muppet being worn as a trophy skin AND THAT’S FREAKING BONER KILLER.
To the special hell reserved for people who talk in cinemas with you costume designers.
YOU SHUT YOUR MOUTH I WILL HEAR NOTHING AGAINST SEXY DINOSAUR IT IS BEAUTIFUL AND PERFECT ON EVERY POSSIBLE LEVEL
Also I feel the decapitated heads make the costumes. They are scantily clad WARRIORS, OKAY.
I can get into “scantily clad warriors” but what about that corn tho
Sexy Bert and Sexy Ernie are !!!
