"Charmander char char."

So, I was looking at a baby charmander art and was thinking, “They can’t have that flame tail in the egg, can they?” I mean, it’s possible that the flame develops when they’re ready to hatch. But then, what if instead the mother or father has to light the charmander’s tail when they’re first born?

I’m terrible because first I thought “oh so it’s like a pilot light” then wondered if charmanders die when their tails go out because it’s the only way they can get rid of their gas.

it is in fact canon that Chamanders (and possibly that whole evolutionary line) will die if their tail flame goes out

I'm talking about the dude that originally told Jon to not say retarded. On one hand he could be a fan of jon who just wanted to look out for him, on the other hand he could be some PC police white knight who wants their 15 seconds of fame on twitter

thats one way to look at it i guess, that said his original tweet towards Jon was ”please don’t say retarded its pretty rude, thanks” over all pretty neutral, though at the right angle it might be viewed as dismissive. hell even Jon’s response is little more than a puerile retort.
but its when other people told him that they too find the word offensive and thought his retort was rude he goes on a tirade about censorship and how comedy and being a comedian means saying offensive things sometimes and ending it with a rather awful pseudo shaming of his detractors saying there are more important things to worry about like the tragedy in Palestine (though to his credit he did take this back when it was pointed out how in poor taste it was)
this is only further compounded when he mocks the people who’ve had a problem with him comparing their repeated complaints with lynch mobs agreeing with the sentiment that it was at one point considered social justice as well. however jokingly he agreed its still in poor taste and dismissing of his fans and people who care, continuing to do so even at the advisemnt of more experienced peers like Neil Cicierega, completely dismissing his comments on the situation of favor of telling him hes a big fan.
Honestly weather or not  Ben Huber was acting as a well meaning fan or a petulant whistle blower is irrelevant at this point, because Jon is the one who blew the issue into something it shouldn’t have been. a simple apology however bitter or terse would have been the end of it for nearly everybody. and other e-celebs like him have stepped up in similar situations, Arin and Danny apologized when fans told them they felt a joke about sexual abuse went to far, the guys at two best friends play stopped a running gag of theirs when told it was making people uncomfortable. its not something worth taking this much of a stand on, and continuing to mock the situation is just making him look childish.
Im still a fan of Jons but the longer this goes on and the longer he refuses to apologize even for the fist remark the worse a taste it leave in my mouth
THOUGH ALL THAT SAID, i think Be was just trying to say some people find the out dated term offensive and that its generally considered rude to use, not necessarily trying to make Jon look bad.
or whatever thats worht at thispoint

honestly, i dont know why i made this.

I empathize with your frustration over worn-out tropes. I really do. I also haven’t enjoyed the proliferation of Adventure Time clones. I think they’re boring (reason: they are boring).
I see where you might say, why is this any more original than what it purportedly stands against? You might question the motives of people designing these characters. Are these people really creating characters, or are these creations merely symbols of an immature political ideology? I get that. These characters aren’t somehow above criticism, either as tools for good storytelling, or vehicles of social responsibility.
That said, I can’t see why, out of all the things one could “call out” to shit on, this was it. Consider these possibilities, alone or combined:
Some white person made this character in order to actively deflect accusations of excluding others, and to gain credibility with their peers.
Some white person made this character because they like Pen Ward stuff, and felt this character was a good fit for their cast.
A white person made this character because they felt that it is important to convey that white is not synonymous with default.
A person who is not white made this character because they felt that it is important to convey that white is not synonymous with default.
 A person who is not white made this character because they like Pen Ward stuff, and felt this character was a good fit for their cast.
A person who is not white made this character because they feel like popular media pretends people like them, don’t exist.
A person who is not white made this character to piss off white people.
And then, just push it all right out your ear, because collectively, it doesn’t matter. It can be frustrating to see people doing the same thing over and over again, and patting themselves (and each other) on the back for it, but that’s if you look at it from way, way too close up. Zoom out a lot. This is a big picture thing.
No matter what the shallow, self-absorbed, social-climbing, industrious, brave, determined, callous, cynical, idealistic, immature, or visionary reasons the individual may have for creating a character that pointedly deviates from “white male as default”, the collective result is that people are progressively made aware that white males are not the default. The idea may not seem new to you, given that you have your microscope trained on a part of the internet that is rather specifically invested in this sort of thing. Myopia makes this seem more all-encompassing than it really is - out there in the rest of the Western world, media representation is still overwhelmingly white, and tailored to the sensibilities of men. Pull back a little bit, let the assumptions about people’s personal motivations slide (I have a hard time with this too, but let’s face it: a lot of good things have happened both despite and because of people with selfish motives), and it’s easier to see that ultimately, the “punk chunky brown girl” is a good thing.

introducing the new friend: The Bowtie Boy

ipgd:

image

does the name ring any bells? here are some signs that you or someone you know may be the bowtie boy:

the bowtie boy is a distant cousin of the fedora man, though they are not on speaking terms and mutually disdain each others’ existence. the bowtie boy is instead social justice savvy and actively strives to create positive social connections in the progressive community.

the bowtie boy is performatively witty and personable and goes to great lengths to endear himself to his friends, acquaintances and fans. he may be either legitimately humorous or subsist on ironicringe and bad puns, or a possible combination thereof.

the bowtie boy likes to be liked. towards this end, the bowtie boy is an attention whore. if the bowtie boy is cute, he will make sure that you know it. he is often some sort of creative person, such as a fan artist, webcomic author or musician, and carefully cultivates a following of doting fans that may or may not constitute a personality cult depending on his level of exposure.

the bowtie boy wears a bowtie. the bowtie is quirky and dated, like a fedora, but it is not a fedora. he does NOT have a favorite pony (if he did, it’d be rarity. rarity is an empowering exercise in reclaiming a kind of feminity that is traditionally viewed as vain, frivolous and contemptible; instead of the archetypical vapid, shoes-and-boys-obsessed ditz who clearly has no future beyond the life of a trophy wife, rarity is a strong and independent businesswoman who has channeled her passions into a successful career. this post has ten thousand notes).

the bowtie boy is conspicuously feminist. he has a large and visible investment in the “strong female character” and fighting the good fight, though on closer inspection it may seem as if his own creative body is little more than an elaborate quirky waifu simulator. expect to see enormous volumes of praise heaped on the bowtie boy for repeating the same things women have been saying for years. the bowtie boy may be profoundly ignorant on a number of other topics, but no one will ever tell him.

despite this public commitment to being good to the womenfolk, the bowtie boy often beefs it in the throes of hubris. at the height of his popularity, expect to discover that he’s secretly been sending pictures of his nasty dick to teens. “i can’t believe tumblr darling cheezlovinbOwTiEbOy420 would do such an awful thing!” we will collectively lament, shouting up to an uncaring god from our knees.

in fact, some of us DON’T believe it. the bowtie boy will retain slavering sycophants to the bitter end, often to the detriment of his victims, who will undoubtedly be assailed with the full force of “i’m really mad that your exploitation has created a social pressure for me to like this cute boy less, so it’d make me feel better if you were lying.”

do you know a bowtie boy? are YOU a bowtie boy? maybe it’s time to put the bowtie to rest. give away your bowtie to a waiter in need.

its eerie how the more i read this the more it seemed to coagulate into people ive seen around here
that one josh guy particularly
