My name is AHR, and you will never learn what that stands for. I live my life in an abusive relationship with the works of Joss Whedon. I am a fan of writing, drawing, and weeping at my lack of owning a drawing tablet. I enjoy LARPing, and am currently a member of the LARP club at my college. I like to reblog and post things that I have opinions about, because that is what you do with opinions. Things I am a fan of: The Legend of Korra, Harry Potter, One Piece, Pokemon, Once Upon a Time, Arrested Development, Archer, Buffy, Angel, That Guy With the Glasses, and Hetalia. I also have a penchant for reading bad webcomics to the point where I become visibly angry. I don't know why this is. A part of me is powerless to stop it. I like Owls.

I’m not really sure what to call it either. “Like Cho Aniki” I guess. Jojo kind of hits those appeals. Super buff. Super manly. Posing weirdly. HEARTS AND BRIGHT PRETTY COLORS. That or mostly naked and oiled up.
If I had to REALLY try and analyze it, I guess I’d say masculinity through the lens of…femininity/neutrality/sexuality? Kind of? Whereas gurren lagann seems like masculinity through the lens of masculinity?
ugh. Terminology all wrong. —grumbles—

I found it more hyper annoying than uncomfortable. I just wanted to punch everyone most of the time. I like my MANLINESS, but then I also like it when it’s super fucking gay. So. ttgl is too straight for my liking.
See, I see that as a different type of MANLINESS. I’m not sure how to phrase it though.
You know say what you will about uber girly shows, there is something really uncomfortable about seeing MANLINESS MANLY MEN as an idealization to strive for.
