Ippen, Shinde Miru?
I have read your PM and know you are mostly joking. I do feel that you still have a shred of truth being shared in this post, otherwise you would not be raising the joke. This message goes out to everyone else who may be silently observing this (People usually do not like conflict so they do not speak up). My focus on Magical Girls and female-centric RPs comes from a philosophical angle rather than me wanting to tear down men. I have several unpopular beliefs when it comes to how the world functions, and I do tend to let this bleed into my RPs. I do not fall into the standard ideas of artificial equality in all things.O-Oof.
Most of your RPs, Sadist, seem to be focused on magical girls or girls.
Spare some luv for the guyz. We may be disgusting pigz, but at least some of us mean well.
(Following this I am going to get controversial, but please read it all before flipping out. Look at the argument as a whole).
I believe in the idea that the two separate genders have some innate differences that make us who we are. I believe that men are natural workers, fighters, and generally expendable. I also believe that women are mothers, nurturers, and are meant to be preserved. This is the natural order to things that is backed up by history. Now in recent years with our enhanced privileges and more free times on our hands we have began to question our place in the world. Humans are the most adaptable species on the planet and can alter their own natural roles to fit outside stimuli. Examples of this would be single-dads becoming the sole nurturer for a child, or women taking up arms in defense of their homeland when it has been over-run by outside forces.
Why do I focus so hard on women? Particularly younger ladies? I enjoy exploring the idea of presenting as they naturally are being forced into unbecoming roles. We live in a society (Yes yes I know this is a meme) where girls are raised on conflicting and toxic ideals. That they ARE strong, but they are ALSO dainty, beautiful, women. They are strong enough to act alone, but in personal experience many women still use men as a cop-out when things get rough. I do not believe this is an elaborate evil ploy by women to use men, rather a biological mechanism we have not overcome as of yet. I see these RPs that focus on women as a way to explore what happens when our historical warriors (Men) are starting to become overshadowed by women.
Going into a specific example from my RP "Pretty Pretty Slaughter" (Which barely qualifies as a true Magical Girl RP. It is more of a post-humanism type RP) there was a riveting scene early on that had a profound effect on my lovely RPers. Without getting into the details, our Magical Girls overcame a group of trained soldiers. This is a minor excerpt from our RP concerning the captured soldiers thoughts on being outdone by a bunch of goofy Magical Girls.
There is more to that scene, but is is VERY vulgar so I will spare everyone that thought. I like to explore the idea that men's roles that give them purpose, place, reason, and other various comforts are being usurped by some ridiculous force that has no business existing. A true and extreme upset to our "God-Given" roles as men and women. I like to have people explore the position of a women who now has power. Will she return what men have done to her? Or will she create a world of fairness? Perhaps they will do something I never thought of. I like to see how roleplaying women with these powers shapes the characters and how they interact with others. I introduce many bigoted characters with no reservations, and then I like to see how the girls from a position of advantage deal with the situations presented.With manic, tear-filled, and broken eyes Jack stared forward into the dark void that had been cast on his eyes. Was this how we going to die? A bunch of little girls with weird fashion sense? What would his brothers in arms think? What about the ones who fell combat?
Also just as a plug - we are always looking for potential people to join Pretty Pretty Slaughter too. I will be opening up positions soon for a few male characters who will act alongside the Magical Girls and independently.
Not everything has to be inclusive. I feel there is some value to having true identity, rather than wishy washy amorphous lukewarm ideals.Yeah why can't there be magic bois?
Final note: I felt I had to project my perspective on this situation. If this scares anyone away then I have done my job right. I am looking for people who want to explore these deep questions while also having a goofy fun time too. Feel free to share your own ideas too.
