    Scandal just in. Lorde can hum the entirity of the he man theme tune.

    This just in. Now in going to for the rest of the day.

    I cannot, for the life of me, remember the he man theme song. Was there even a theme song?

    All I remember is the funny feeling I got when prince Adam changed into a leather harness

    It sort of had a theme song?

    There was a background tune playing during the intro bit, with Adam explaining that he fights Skeletor by becoming a Magical Swole Man.

    True story, when I was four I spent the majority of our running around in our garden dresses only in my underwear with a large plastic sword shoved down the back of them.

    I totally had a thing for She-Ra. I won't go into specifics or anything, but it's just funny because looking back I really had no idea what those feelings meant when it came to girls. There was no one to explain them to me.

    The best part about Adam/He-man's costume change is that, in the original version, all that changed was his outfit.

    Which did not include adding anything above the neck.

    Not even like, Clark Kent glasses or anything.

    The 80s was a very previous time.

    also, interesting specificity note

    one of the funny things about language is you start to question "what is it i am trying to convey?"

    for example i originally wrote the sentence:
    "some people with vaginas get period cramps so fucking bad it's like someone walks up and hits them with a baseball bat in the innards every month on the regular"

    as

    "some women..." yadda yadda

    and while that is still technically accurate (since some women do experience that, and not all women do), it's still language that's trans-exclusionary. it doesn't specifically imply that women are people with vaginas who experience periods (since it only says some women, erego any woman without a vagina would be as exempt as a woman with a vagina who doesn't experience such things), what it does do is exclude people with vaginas who are not women. and that's trans-exclusionary.

    so, without even posting, without even really fully finishing the sentence, i narrowed my eyes, and changed "women" to "people with vaginas" because the point i was making in that statement was specifically to people with vaginas and can potentially apply to anyone with that anatomy regardless of their gender.

    do i do this every time? nnnnnnnope

    but i do it when it matters, i think, because conveyance is important

    shitty people act like this is some great oppression upon them, like this is some kind of horrid form of policing or over-sensitivity. it's not. it's often just as much about being clear and correct in what you are saying.

    She Ra was without doubt the better cartoon.

    He man though had the better theme song.

    It's also inaccurate because in this case it's the uterus that's the problem, not the vagina.

    I saw the south park episode and laughed at Stan's reaction to the autotune thing, but not much else. Overall I was not impressed even a little bit.

    And the crossover movie that introduced She-Ra was one one of the most gloriously gay cartoons to ever air in the states.

    It got away with some funny things that just would not fly nowadays.

    As I said, the 80s was a very precious time.

    She'd have to be 30 for that

    there was a conversation that came up in another thread a while back

    and it was about protagonists in video games, Mass Effect was used as the specific example

    one person sorta playfully stated, not even necessarily seriously at first I don't think, that in their playthrough Shepard is trans

    the person saying it is trans so i think that's like, a component here

    and someone else was like "now hold on, that's going a bit far with head-canon type nonsense. Shepard isn't trans. There's nothing to suggest that Shepard is trans and you can't declare that Shepard is trans and there's really no dialogue options or anything in the game to support that, there's no dialogue options to tell people you're trans or anything like that. You can choose Shepard's sexual orientation, sure, but Shepard isn't trans."

    I got involved, because I thought that was an incredibly odd and ignorant track to take. Like, it basically assumes that in lieu of any information to the contrary, a character is cisgender by default and the onus is on someone else to provide evidence to the contrary. Except Shepard is this like, highly malleable quantum protagonist that exists as a waveform that collapses based on choices the player makes, and how is this one any different?

    "Well, there's no dialogue options to say you're trans!" this individual pointed out. True, but there's none to declare you're cis, either. It's not like, if you're playing DudeShep, you get a dialogue option with Ashley where you're all "Growing up as a young boy on Earth with my penis was very difficult...". Even when you pick actual background details like where Shepard grew up, that comes up very sparsely in the series and it doesn't really establish Shepard's assigned-sex-at-birth, if any. You see Shepard's gender now, and that's certainly who Shepard is, but that doesn't tell you a damn thing one way or the other about who Shepard was.

    Assuming that means a character is then, ipso facto, cisgender means you're defaulting to it, which for a player-created protagonist I think is kinda troublesome? Especially when a person tries to argue with someone else that they're wrong about their Shepard being trans.

    I mean, the setting presented in Mass Effect is this crazy space-future with incredibly advanced medical science and also an extremely egalitarian culture where a lot of medical procedures and surgery are kind of trivial and things like sexual bigotry seems non-existent (homophobia certainly doesn't seem to exist on any level in Mass Effect's future). So why should it be so strange to think that such a thing is possible? Especially for a trans player who really doesn't have any other way to have a protagonist in video games that reflects them, currently.

    That was the attitude I took on this issue. Anyone else have thoughts on that?
