If you want to be friends with me you don’t have to be “Hi, um, can, ya know, we be friends?”
It is 1000000000000000000000% percent ok if you just go into my inbox can go. “Man, I am so fucking pissed off at fucking Larry.” And I’ll most likely respond with, “Oh shit! What did Larry do now?”
ienjoyfollowingyou replied to your photoset “You know what? I’m tired of people dissing selfies, too. So what if…”
you are super gorgeous and u have a really good point tbh!!
Aw, thank you. I’ve seen your selfies as well and you are a smoking fine bae :D
If you think Nintendo’s constant need to turn a tough space warrior like this…
Into a scantily-clad pin-up in high heels like this…
Is anything but sexism, then just unfollow me.
This isn’t about “But it’s workout gear” or “but they’re rocket boots” or “but she shows up half-naked in most Metroid games as a reward if you beat the game,” because all those things boil down to the same basic idea: Samus isn’t an avatar for people to pour themselves into and feel empowered by. They all spell out that Samus is supposed to be a sex object; a present you get to unwrap by being a buff enough (man) gamer. It’s a sexist holdover from a worse era, and it needs to go away.
People on Tumblr talk so much about how a woman should be proud of herself and her body, shouldn’t have to pretend she’s something she’s not just to appease others… yet by getting all irate about these costumes (which have been around since 2004, mind you) and acting like it’s somehow some massive sexist conspiracy to see her being able to fight outside the gender-obscuring armor… aren’t you all just completely defying your own selves and your messages about womanly freedom, body-positivity, and empowerment?
There’s no reason for all this. Let Samus be Samus.
This is a complete non-argument. This isn’t “letting Samus be Samus.” Samus isn’t real. She’s written by real-world human beings. In this case, men. In every case, men. Samus isn’t a woman being a woman. She’s a woman-shaped puppet being operated by a man, to demonstrate what he thinks women should be. And that message COULD be something strong or inspiring, about being a well-rounded person or just about being a hero without having to wear high heels. But instead the message is “You can be strong IF you appeal to the male gaze.”
To steal a quote from John Berger:
“You painted a naked woman because you enjoyed looking at her, put a mirror in her hand and you called the painting “Vanity,” thus morally condemning the woman whose nakedness you had depicted for you own pleasure.”
"sometimes you want to be naked, and other times you want clothes. which is it womans? check mate womans."

You know what? I’m tired of people dissing selfies, too. So what if teens want to take repetitive photos of their face and share it online? I grew up hating my photo being taken and thinking my face was mediocre, so how awesome is it that people of my generation, the “selfie generation”, is going through their lives with much more confidence than I had?
To show my solidarity with the selfie generation, I’m jumping on the selfie bandwagon! This selfie-noob presents her first ever selfie set. (Maybe someday I’ll move up to selfie-apprentice and learn how to apply filters and make-up.)
so apparently an arm can sell on the black market for $885, ($500 for the shoulder plus $385 for the hand an forearm)
and a leg can sell for $500 (at least thats the lowest price of an albino leg so im guessing here)
So when someone says “That’ll cost an arm ad a leg” they are roughly asking for $1,335
which is less than i would have guessed.
i didn’t spend this much time researching the cost of limbs on the black market for one note

* only want you for your body
* will/are leading you on
* think you owe them something
