1. 10 Anime You Should Watch (And That Are Easy to Find!)

This was one of our most commented-on posts this year in addition to being the post with the highest traffic. It’s not hard to see why: Both the post and the comments (168 and counting) are a treasure trove of info on good, female-friendly anime easily accessible through Netflix or Hulu.

Don’t say we never did anything for ya.

    Dang, I was really hoping the Willy Wonka store would make the cut. Oh, to visit that place. I wonder if there is wallpaper with snozberries there?

    Can you guys try to avoid terms like ‘non-caucasian’ (and by association, ‘non-white’) in articles like these? They just perpetuate the flawed concept of the white default, and that’s the last thing we need if we’re going to progress with issues of race and intersectionality.

    If you say ‘non-caucasian’, you might as well stop using terms like gay and lesbian and pull out ‘non-straights’.

    Didn’t read the article when I realized it was about the most regular posts of 2012 rather than the most popular poets of 2012. (astigmatism for the win.) :D

    Some day there will be a viable woman that is the most important writer.
    Or an artist that simply overwhelms us with their abilities.
    But why isn’t it you?

    hey there! I made the Disney princess dolls and posted them on my own tumblr (used to be marrymejasonsegel, is now missmisandry). My mother made a comment on your original article, but she didn’t make them. I want to say that I wish I was more artistically talented so I could have drawn these and used more non-white features, but I’m not (sadly). I did these for fun, and I did not think they would blow up the way they did!

    Terms like ‘non-caucasian’ and ‘non-straights’ all have their place in the right context. And considering that a majority of Americans are straight, white, gentiles, etc., what’s wrong with speaking of something as a demographical ‘default’ – especially when it is?

  • Ashe P. Samuels

    Pretty sure white people are quickly becoming the minority in the United States, and actually are in many cities. As for straight people, who knows how many straight people are actually out here? Sexuality is extremely fluid, and many people who fall under different umbrellas remain secretive about this information, for good reason.

    Men are also considered the ‘default’ here, and we all know that’s not true, is it? Aren’t there slightly more women in the population?

    While we’re at it, let’s just assume everyone is mentally and physically sound, everyone adheres to the rigid male-female gender binary, and, hey, why not, everyone’s thin and slightly toned!

    Defaulting is a flawed, self-fulfilling prophecy at best. If that’s all you see, all the media/government/educational system acknowledges, or, better yet, it’s the umbrella YOU fall under, that’s how your world is going to seem, even when it’s not the case.

    There’s no such thing as a default human being. In a place as diverse as the United States, which is only going to become more so, this language does not and will not make any sense.
