oh you’re watching sword art online? i love that anime. the way they [clenches fist] sexualize every female character and turn them into disposable plot devices for their generic cookie cutter male protagonist
I don’t even know what to say. Honestly, I’d like to hear thoughts from Latinas on this. Whether or not this is offensive really isn’t something I feel qualified to judge, though I will share a few general thoughts:
- Fact: Genesis Rodriguez (Honey Lemon’s voice actress) doesn’t speak American English with any kind of accent.
- Fact: it’s impossible to tell from Honey’s character design alone that she is Latina (her cgi model is literally an elongated version of Rapunzel, that point’s been pretty much hammered into oblivion here on tumblr)
- Not fact, but from my pretty accurate memory of the going-ons in the #honey lemon tag over the months, and it reinforces the second fact: speculation that Honey Lemon was possibly Latina only came up after the voice actress was revealed.
So, with these things in mind, if Honey Lemon is being given a slight accent, that implies that the studio needed that character to have an accent, because without it, it’s practically impossible to differentiate her from yet another white Rapunzel clone.

^That. Right there.
GENESIS RODRIGUEZ HAS CONFIRMED THAT HONEY IS LATINA!!!!
"We were trying to figure out what kind of accent Honey would have, and one time I would go in with an accent, and another time I wouldn’t, and we figured out that when she said ‘Hiro’ it was going to be in Spanish, with a little bit of Spanish words."
I have been taking chemistry classes for the past few years, and I can tell you only one thing that Disney got wrong.
Put your hair up.
Put your hair up.
PUT YOUR HAIR UP, IT’S A HAZARD.
Maybe it’s to show how good she is.
Shes too good for basic rules
"too good for basic rules"
This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.
be nice to people because the world is a shitty place and we all need a little help sometimes
This is my roleplay blog and I have no right asking this of anyone. Before I do anything I’m going to give you the story of why I’m doing so.
I went to my grandmothers to clean her floor today because she can’t bend down and do it herself and while I was taking out the garbage I heard mewing inside the dumpster and me having a motherly instinct with anything. I climbed into the dumpster and found this kitten caked in garbage, her eyes glued shut and crust coming out of her nose. As to how she got there, I’m not sure if she climbed in herself (doubtful) or if someone threw her in there. I pulled her out to no other kittens or mother in sight and trust me, I’ve had mother cats around here if she was around I’d of gotten my ass kicked.
I brought her home and my mother cleaned out the crust and the glue to the point she can open one eye and she’s got some sort of scab across her nose. She’s sniffling so bad and I’m worried as hell that she won’t make it through the night. I would love to say in this instance I live in New Mexico but I don’t, I live in a place where it’s getting so cold at night because winter is coming. No that’s not a Game of Thrones reference. It rained for a full week and this kitten is about 4 to 5 weeks old.
I don’t have a job and I couldn’t just leave her there, she cried and cried and no one came for her. I dumpster dived to save her life. She’s barely bigger than my hand. I’m short and skinny so you can imagine how tiny my hands are.
In good news, she’s eating, she’s drinking and she’s not shivering. I’ve named her “Minnie” after the iconic Disney Mouse.
I can’t afford to even take her into the vet, I’ve begged my father but he’s refusing to because he doesn’t want to pay it. I hate asking, I hate doing this but even a dollar will help me, if there’s money left over when I take her it will be used specifically on her even after that. Whether it’s food or formula, things she needs. I have cats already but not cats this young.
If that doesn’t link through send me an ask.
I will pay you back in anyway possible from fanfiction for your OTP, gif sets, icons, anything. If I could draw I would. Anything, even the shirt off my back.
I just don’t want to lose her without a fight.
