This perfectly summarizes why I love the Simpsons and hate Family Guy. 

Yup.

So this.

I watched that episode with my family and I could just feel how uncomfortable everyone was. Honestly, it was a really jarring, unpleasant episode.

Homer is a terrible dad. So is Peter. But Homer’s saving grace has always been that he tries—he’s bad at it and he fucks it up a lot, but he loves his family and he wants to be better than he is.

One of my favorite Homer moments is in “Diatribe of a Mad Housewife.” Tl;dr Marge writes a steamy romance novel starring herself and Ned, and when Homer finds out, he chases down Ned and, rather than attack him, asks him to teach him how to be a better husband.

There’s some part of his stupid self that wants to do better.

I never got that impression with Peter. Instead, the family has gotten more and more abusive towards Meg. It’s really unsettling for me when I started realizing that’s what happens sometimes in abusive families. Abusers sometimes single out one child to abuse, and quite often the other family members take the abuser’s side. After all, it’s easier to side with an abuser than to run the risk of becoming the target yourself.

There’s never really a point where it seems like Peter cares at all that his shitty behavior impacts his family. It actually seems to have gotten worse over the years. He expects everyone to clean up his messes because that’s always what happens; there’s really no reason for him not to be shitty.

And it’s easy to see how Meg is affected. She doesn’t have much of a character, really, because so much her screen time is devoted to being abused. The bits of character development all seem to hinge on her being this sad, neglected person who’s trying her best but never really gets any help from anyone. Quite the opposite; there have been a lot of episodes where her family sabotages any attempts to be herself.

It can be easy to forget how awful this behavior is when the only context is the show itself (frankly, everyone on Family Guy is kind of terrible). Seeing it played against the Simpsons, who are a flawed and dysfunctional but ultimately loving family, was painful to watch.

Anonymous asked: but scobs those are not your OCs. aren't they humanized canon tfs?

obfuscobble:

ehhhhh at this point, Swaraj Paisaa and Joe Ladolce are OCs in a magical girl comic and so far removed from their TF roots it isn’t even funny.  They just got the same faces as my humanformers.  But the stories I’ve written for them and their relations to each other are in complete OC territory.  As in, it’s at the point that I think “and Swaraj would…” when scripting.  I’ll admit my character inspiration, but it’s at OC level now.  And that’s frankly healthier for a creative mind.

lots of people get inspiration here and there and everywhere.  inspiration can start off as derivative stuff and then branch off into its own world far faaar removed from its source.  Like when you read a really OOC AU fanfic, isn’t there that point where you think “this should just be original fiction at this point?”  i’ve kinda been lying to my followers by tagging stuff with swinlock when i don’t really think about those humanoid characters in that way anymore.  i have actual OCs.  sorry, followers.

and now i kinda feel like shit.

We’re not the only people who do this.

i’ve seen more posts of people being excited for Home than this movie, which made me upset because this movie comes out before Home does (not that i am saying that you shouldn’t praise Home as well). and as for Big Hero 6 (a movie that also comes out after the Book of Life) and the people saying that there is a lack of representation of Asians in media, i feel you. why? because there is a bigger lack of hispanics, and i agree Disney messed up, you be upset. but be happy for Hispanics as well because we finally got an animated movie representing us and our culture. so please go see this movie when it comes out.

that is all i ask.

But yes Shattered Glass Rung/Fort Max

Fort Max is Warden of Garrus 9, the largest prison to house Decepticon scum- although over half the cells are empty; most Cons don’t make it to the prison alive. But, Max works with what he’s got. He runs a tight ship and is very proud of his command.

Until…

Yes.  Yes yes yes

This matches up with my SG-Rung headcanons almost perfectly.

Promoting men’s body positivity. We all don’t have chiseled abs.

Love this! Yay for body positive for guys! Honestly the top pic of guys look better then the bottom pic. ♡

Haha, great way to be body positive. “Honestly the top pic of guys look better then the bottom pic.”

People just don’t get it. They think by blasting their own opinion on I someone’s body some how magically makes them a better person. I hate that crap.

I appreciate that those dudes are willing to put themselves out there because so many people think men just have to suck it up and shouldn’t even care about being seen as attractive. Also, yeah no need to bash the thinner guys what the hell?

All these men belong on my blog for reasons… sultry reasons…

It’s about fucking time I made a ref folder for this stuff.
