Hello, I am Mercedez.
But I'd prefer to be known as Kittyfloss (just a cute nickname I was given when I was little ).
♉ 14 years old.
I like Homestuck, candy apples, and porn.
I don't have a tablet yet, so a lot of the art I post will be in pencil.
I take requests, though I can't promise them done immediately, 'cause I might have a shit ton already from Facebook.
I am still getting used to Tumblr, so please excuse my n00byness.

(I don’t understand Japanese, so I ask my friend to tell brief story for me. This comic is quite complicate sad feeling, and my english skill isn’t good enough. so I don’t sure I can tell the story well, sorry for that.)
Eren is watching Jean from behind and think that Jean is crying. But when Jean turn to him he isn’t crying. Eren tells that he know Jean want to cry. Eren think that when he is in the battle field, his feeling is not quite this bad. However, in this peaceful moment, he feel bad about how he can’t do anything. Then, Eren tell Jean that when he stay with Jean he want to cry, but after crying he fell better, so Jean should cry too. Jean say when he is with Eren, he feel he is weak. Weak enough to worry about himself. If he cries now, everything’ll worse. Jean tell Eren to wait the time that his weakness isn’t make anyone in trouble. In that time, he’ll cry.
Snickers mocks the idea that men can respect women.
This is one of the most demoralizing ads I’ve seen in a long time. It’s an Australian ad for Snickers in which construction workers on a busy city street yell pro-feminist comments at women, like “I’d like to show you the respect you deserve” and ”You want to hear a filthy word? Gender bias” and “You know what I’d like to see? A society in which the objectification of women makes way for gender neutral interaction free from assumptions and expectations.”
The construction workers are actors, but the women on the street are (or appear to be) real and their reactions authentic. The first thing women do is get uncomfortable, revealing how a lifetime of experience makes them cringe at the prospect of a man yelling at them. But, as women realize what’s going on, they’re obviously delighted. They love the idea of getting support and respect instead of harassment from strange men.
This last woman actually places her hand on her heart and mouths “thank you” to the guys.
And then the commercial ends and it’s all yanked back in the most disgusting way. It ends by claiming that pro-feminist men are clearly unnatural. Men don’t respect women — at least, not this kind of man — they’re just so hungry they can’t think straight.
The twist ending is a genuine “fuck you” to the actual women who happened to walk by and become a part of the commercial. I wonder, when the producers approached them to get their permission to be used on film, did they tell them how the commercial would end? I suspect not. And, if not, I bet seeing the commercial would feel like a betrayal. These women were (likely) given the impression that it was about respecting women, but instead it was about making fun of the idea that women deserve respect.
What a dick move, Snickers. I hope you’re happy with your misogynist consumer base, because I don’t think I can ever buy a Snickers bar again. What else does your parent company sell? I’ll make a note.
Thanks to sociologist and pro-feminist Michael Kimmel for sending in the ad.
