Some creative anime fansubs
Let em know dad.
ok, someone please “enlighten” me because this really doesn’t make sense to me. I always thought x-men had more to do with things like witch hunts and superstition. The only human breeding that I saw in Dune was more similar to the kind that’s seen in royal families (there might be some later, I’m only two-thirds done with it). Sure Star Wars has heavy influences from imperialism, but i don’t see how that has to do with race (seeing as pretty much every powerful country throughout history has done it.) I can kinda buy the first contact connections because (at least in the Americas) the mistreatment of the indigenous peoples are still fresh in our mind. That said, that’s not the only type of first contact story. My humble opinion is that sci-fi/fan___ stuff is inspired more by human history as a whole. But that’s just me.(via henroon)
X-Men has always been an allegory for racial inequality, and I’m sure it has taken on undertones of LGBT/other oppressed groups in recent times. The interviews with the creators are really interesting. I think the gist of it is that the “mutant” premise was as close as the publishers were comfortable with confronting the civil rights issues of the day. Witch hunts and superstition factor into it to, but mostly in the “modern-day” sense of really fucked up racial profiling and persecution, like young black men being lynched in the south over false accusations. Shit, Magneto was a Holocaust survivor and you don’t get more racial-witch-hunty than that.
Science Fiction is always about callbacks or extrapolations from human history…unfortunately that includes the really unsavory aspects as well. Certainly imperialism is super racial…what else would it be when one group of people decides to take over a lesser group to get what they want. Certainly since race is still an iffy subject it often gets translated to something else like class or species or ideology to make sci fi more “accessible”.
Of course sometimes that backfires. I read a pretty funny essay on how Halo was problematic because it shows a diverse, multiracial alien army fighting for a common cause against the faceless, homogeneous humans :p
There has only been five female characters comfirmed playable compared to fifteen male characters.
"[women] weren’t meant to be warriors"
is what he said, but what I heard was,
"I have never read a history book in my life and don’t intend to"
