This is a rant! It's not entirely serious. Though, it is a little bit serious. I've just seen a lot of ignorant blathering on and on and on about Ayami Kojima's work, and most of it from (a) self-proclaimed Castlevania purists who claim Kojima ruined the games wah wah wah (ignoring the fact that their precious booboo Igarashi is the one who okays and directs her character designs)...and were not even CONCEIVED before Dawn of Sorrow was released, never mind wearing diapers, and who claim to be hardXxXcoreXxX when they cannot even manage the first level of Super Castlevania IV sans savestates, and (b) that particular subtype of tryhard female fan who thinks misogyny and homophobia are a surefire way to look cool and avoid the inevitable shitstorm that comes of disagreeing with insecure dudebrahs (fat chance lol).

The common threads in the "arguments" made by these parties are Orientalist bullshitfuckery, homophobic/gender-essentialist bullshitfuckery, and a certain purposeful obtuseness and utter refusal to accept that fancy-looking men WERE a romantic/aesthetic ideal in Western history.

Have you nincompoops never seen how Louis XIV dressed seriously--

*COUGH*

Anyhow. To the lager-lout types in the cheapie-seats, ye whom I'm complaining like fuck about--google you the Pre-Raphaelite art movement. Do eeeeet. DOOOO EEEEEET. NAO.


Got it? GOOD. ALLEZ LOOKENS-PEEPERS. THIS ART MOVEMENT


RIGHT HERE


THE PRE-RAPHAELITE MOVEMENT

FEATURES A WHOLE HELL OF A LOT OF SIMILAR THEMATIC MATERIAL AND ART STYLISTIC QUIRKS AND ET CETERA, AND A LOT OF FANCY MEN AND WOMEN.

Google Symbolism too and Romaticism. Look at those manz in ur base.

Notice anything?

BOY HOWDY, WHO'DA THUNK THAT LIEFELDIAN BEEFCAKE WASN'T ALWAYS THE IDEALIZED LOOK FOR A MAN!

so now that you know this you can shut the hell up with your Orientalist twaddle about ~girly mans~ and how there's no precedent for such in Western media/how everyone is sick of it except for stupid bitch fangirls/it's soooo gaaaaaaay/etc.

Speak for yourself, you purposefully-obtuse blithering buffoon. You're a know-nothing gender-essentialist ignorant twank. Piss off and don't talk to me again until you're brave enough to stick more than one miserable toe into the Pierian spring, assmunch.

I don't expect people to be art-smarts champions extraordinaire or anything--but i do expect people to do bloody basic homework before they open their fat yaps and start making absolute statements about things they know jack about.

If Kojima's art or Pre-Raphaelite art isn't to your taste, fine. Similarly, I don't like bleu cheese--but I don't make backhanded snivelling little wanky comments about people who like things what aren't to my taste. Thus, y'all can shut your noise-flaps about how ~EVERYONE HATES THIS THING BECAUSE I SAY SO~. Sorry2say, but you're not the arbiter of good taste, and if you try to put on airs and act like you're ever so very worldly and ever so much better n' smarter n' cooler than the plebes? I will beat you at your own game and bludgeon you with the artbitch stick until you learn manners. NO ONE BEATS A FUCKING ARTSY FOR PRETENTIOUS LOQUACITY, BETCH. XD

it's fine if you don't like a thing but the minute I start hearing "BUT EVERYONE HATES IT" or "IT'S STUPID WAH NO ONE IN THE WEST LIKES IT" or references to sexual orientation, I start rolling my eyes so hard I can see my brain. Like what you like, dislike what you don't, but unless something someone else likes and you do not has issues multifarious and is problematic as balls, just--naff off. Your opinion about Kojima's artwork is not the be-all and end-all of cool. I like her work, but you don't see me insulting people who don't. Contariwise I fucking dislike Jackson Pollock greatly, but I'm not going to bite people who think he's the bee's knees.

I only bite and insult flatulent snotty people who think that their personal tastes and experiences are universal and the One right Way, and who think that being asses makes them kewliez. XP
