guaranteed to make your friends shit themselves
Ruby Rhod is one of my favorite characters in sci-fi ever because he is Luc Besson’s vision of the hetero sex symbol of the future: a flamboyant, emotionally labile man who wears skin-tight leopard print or decks himself in roses, a man who accessorizes with big jewelry and dabbles in cosmetics. And the ladies love him. Everything about him screams “gay” according to our stereotypes, but he’s portrayed as a 100% straight sexual dynamo.
Besson is one of the few directors I’ve seen who actually recognizes that our ideas of sexuality and gender performance might have changed drastically in the future.
I spent a large portion of my childhood working out if he was male or female…
I SWEAR IF ANYONE EVER SAYS “ANIME IS FOR KIDS, ITS JUST CARTOONS” TO ME
I WILL STRAP THEM DOWN AND FORCE THEM TO WATCH ELFEN LEID, HIGURASHI, DEATH NOTE, PUELLA MAGI, MONSTER, AND EVERY FUCKING DISTURBING, INSANE, INTENSE, PSYCHOLOGICAL ANIME UNTIL THEY ARE PSYCHOLOGICALLY BROKEN
THEN I WILL LET THEM GO
AHD WHEN THEIR FRIENDS & FAMILY ASK WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED TO THEM
I WILL STEP REALLY CLOSE
AND WHISPER IN THE MOST SERIOUS VOICE
If you write something mean on someone’s cast, is that adding insult to injury?
