The "Furry" Problem

Fair warning: there is some slight language in this post.

My name is Jonathan Ponikvar. I’m the creator of Peter & Company and an avid cartoon fan; I have been trying (successfully or not) to draw them since I first discovered the magic of crayons and markers. Like…

Furry hatred always fascinates me. Like… okay so you’re weirded out that people are turned on by Amy Rose or whatever… okay… but that’s only a small segment of the audience and the rest of it is harmless and probably aimed at kids… so… what?

There’s a similar thing going on with anime/manga (and WAY more deserved I add) where people dismiss it based on the perverted side and… well… 

Considering that nearly every movie or television series that has gotten popular has a porn version of it and guys/girls talking about how hot and sexy the actors are… that strikes me as wee bit ridiculous.

Anonymous asked: Your art has a very unique style which can be seen in Rumplestiltskin and in Mokepon, etc. Has your art always been this way? If not, since when has it started becoming like it is now?

h0lyhandgrenade:

To be honest, I’m a little surprised when people tell me I have a unique style. I’ve never tried to make it unique, and there’s never been a point at which it became what it is… I’ve essentially just always been trying to look at different influences I like and plaster them all together in one style. Sometimes the way I draw goes further in one direction, sometimes it veers back towards another, because my tastes keep changing. I just let it go as it will xD Thanks for the ask!

Please, we all know that you inspired by my genius h0ly.

1. Your skin may never be perfect, and that’s okay.

2. Life is too short not to have the underwear, the coffee, and the haircut you want.

3. Everyone (including your family, your coworkers, and your best friend) will talk about you behind your back, and you’ll talk about them too. It doesn’t mean you don’t love each other.

4. It’s okay to spend money on things that make you happy.

5. Sometimes without fault or reason, relationships deteriorate. It will happen when you’re six, it will happen when you’re sixty. That’s life.

Five things I am trying very hard to accept (via aumoe)

Number 3 is ridiculously true.

For all the ‘I’m honest and I speak my mind’ that gets bandied around, people talk behind people’s backs. Is it right? 

Probably not but… well… that’s how life is. XD

In light of Wonder Woman’s reveal at SDCC, I realized how much the way they dress female superheroes tends to irk me.
See this?  This is Captain Marvel, Carol Danvers.  See that costume?  That is badass.  No heels.  No boob-window, no cleavage.  Functional, attractive, connotes the authority of a uniform with the bright, inspirational colors of a hero.
Dressing for looks is one thing; Carol wears plenty of things based on her sense of fashion during her off-hours.  But when she’s Captain Marvel, her primary objective is not to look good.  It’s to be a symbol of courage and whupass.
I wish more artists and publishers would give their audiences enough credit to not constantly think with their dicks … but then, lots of readers do.  As well as artists.  
Thankfully, not all of them.

Honestly this looks friggin’ badass.

Some more reasons why I won’t join any sort of social justice movement.

Amen

thbbbbbbbbbbbbbt

Woooooow the Les Miz and World War 2 ones…

See this is the problem I have with the whole SJW social justice movement. A lot of it’s perpetrators just do not have the experience to back it up it seems. They’re understanding of feminism, of racism and LGBT issues is… shallow. It’s the ‘checklist’ approach and has no thought beyond it beside ‘they’re all white, so it’s racist’ and that’s really not good.

It worries me that so many young people are learning this really bad habit and that it’s only being encouraged by older people on Tumblr who should know better.

The bomb one is one where if in the future I get it wrong, I DON’T CARE.
I’d rather have an inaccuracy in my comic than be on a government watchlist, ya know?

You know what I find odd..? The fact that there seems to be no Disney animated movies coming out in 2015 nor 2017… The ones after Big Hero 6 are Zootopia for 2016, another untitled movie for 2016, and two untitled movies for 2018. Nothing has been listen on Wikipedia for 15 nor 17.

That is…

I expect they’re just spending more time on their projects than Dreamworks are to be honest. It’s kind of been a running thing that Dreamworks produces movies faster than Disney does. That’s been going on since I was like… 16, it’s nothing new XD

On top of which, there’s the Marvel movies coming out which Disney obviously has a stake in. Not to mention anything from Pixar or Lucasfilm. 

Basically Disney doesn’t *need* to make a bunch of films out of it’s animation studio. They’ve got plenty of other films coming out under their various owned studios.

Anonymous asked: I really wish sometimes that we all just became one race to get rid of racism.

delilahsdawson:

bethrevis:

Oh, I don’t think that would get rid of racism, not at all. One has only to read Dr. Seuss to get an idea of how people would be prejudiced against other people even if we suddenly got rid of differences in skin color. 

I remember when I first went to college, I said something similar to what you’re saying while I was in a class—actually, I used the whole “I’m ‘color blind’” argument, saying that I wasn’t racist because I didn’t see color. Which, of course, is a product of my privilege, isn’t possible anyway, and is kind of a tool thing for me to say, although I didn’t realize it at the time. A black friend of mine stopped me before I even finished speaking and pointed out that ending racism isn’t about getting rid of the colors and ethnicities that make us all different. If that were the case, eugenics would work, and it clearly, clearly does not (as evidenced both by real history—see not just Hitler, but also Darfur, Rwanda, apartheid in South Africa, Armenia, Bosnia, Cambodia, and so many more tragedies—and in fiction. My book is certainly not the first one to touch upon the idea of why having one race is bad.) 

One of my favorite movies as a kid was Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. Please don’t tell anyone I had a crush on Kevin Costner. But my favorite scene is when the character of Azeem, a Muslim character played by Morgan Freeman, encounters a little girl from England who’s never seen a black person before:

Azeem: Salaam, little one.

Small Girl: Did God paint you?

Azeem: Did God paint me? [laughs] For certain.

Small Girl: Why?

Azeem: Because Allah loves wondrous varieties.

It isn’t that we’re different that’s the problem. Just the opposite: the world is amazing and brilliant and beautiful and wondrous precisely because we are different.

The problem is merely that people hate other people because they are different. 

To “fix racism,” the solution—and the problem—does not lie in the fact that people are different. Take away skin color, and there would still be difference. It’s not at all about taking away the differences. It’s about taking away the hate. 

Beautiful answer from Beth Revis here. <3

A reminder that racism is not cured by ignoring that different races exist. Just like sexism and homophobia is cured by ignoring those people. It’s about recognizing that someone is different and then not being a dick to them.
