Megamind - 'Bad Guy' vs ‘Nice Guy’
Seriously, if you haven’t see this movie, you really, really should. There are so many great things about Megamind: anti-bullying, great female character, funny jokes, touching scenes, very detailed animation, super awesome music… The gif set above is probably my favourite thing, however: Nice Guy is the bad guy.
Yeah I’ve kinda wanted to talk about this a lot.
Megamind is the villain, the “bad guy”. She makes it clear that she doesn’t want him. He respects it and walks off. It comes up a few more times but it’s more of an “are you sure?” or “thats how it is” than any sort of demand.
Hal is the new “hero”. His crush on Roxanne turns into an immediate “You love me now because I’m a superhero!” and when she makes it clear that she doesn’t want him, his reaction is to tantrum, then destroy the city, inevitably killing people, and attempting to kill both Roxanne and Megamind.
Hal’s legitimately scary because women have to deal with behavior like his on a constant basis. Don’t be a Hal. Be a Megamind. RESPECT THE “NO”.
Unrelated, but my other favorite thing, besides the whole “villain is a Nice Guy”, is that Minion cross-dresses and Megamind is completely serious when he says “you look fantastic”. Megamind is totally cool about his best friend cross-dressing and encourages it. That’s very important.
Roxanne also is the only character that moves the story along. All the other characters are having an existential crisis. Roxanne throws things and steps up first and is just a fucking queen.
Also I am like 200% convinced Megamind is bi. BUT THATS ME NOT OFFICIAL CANON although Dreamworks has like abandoned Megamind entirely so fandom says he’s bi THE END fandom-canon is now canon fight me on this
Sometimes I think this movie came out a few years too early. Tumblr would have loved the shit out of this. This movie fucks with stereotyped gender roles and Nice Guy thinking and just augh Dreamworks why did you let go of this why why why that was the worst decision ever why
This this this THIS THIS THIS
It might have been just another “Frozen” type movie to how Tumblr would react to/handle it.
the internet is such a bizarre place
How did this even happen.
what kind of fucking shoujo
why can’t there be a boob transfer system for all women?? like, a girl can be like “I have an F cup and I really want to go down a couple of sizes because my back hurts” and a girl with an A cup could be like “Oh could you transfer some of ur boob tissue to me because I’d like to go up a size” and it would be done
do you have any idea how great that would be
ok but imagine if trans boys could donate their boobs to trans girls
I know. I hope one day it will be possible for me to donate my uterus and ovaries to a trans woman.
Please don’t tell girls “The boy who’s picking on you actually just likes you”
Even if it’s true, you shouldn’t teach girls to respect that sort of affection.
And you should definitely not teach boys that expressing their attraction to women through violence and disrespect is ok.
I really needed to read this today.
The evolution of girl gamers
Boy gamers are so self-centered they act as though women haven’t been playing video games for decades, and then act horrified when the female gamers who have always been there actually become visible and vocal about the rampant misogyny that has infected the gaming world.
Like seriously, how entitled do you have to be that women saying “it sure would be nice if I wasn’t treated like shit while enjoying the games I play” translates to “I must be catered to” when video games have LITERALLY been catered to men for decades?
- 1993 - 64% of girls reported playing video games
- 1996 - "home use had increased for fourth grade girls"
- 1998 - "both male and female adolescents play video games on a regular basis."
- 1999 - "88% of the female college students … surveyed were video game players."
- 2007 - 20-47% of adolescent girls play video games
- 2008 - "94% of girls play video games"
- 2010 - "Forty percent of all game players are women."
- 2012 - "Women 18 or older represent a significantly greater portion of the game-playing population (30%) than boys age 17 or younger"
- 2013 -"adult women are nearly half of all video game players"
I didn’t get all the dates, but I think you can get the point.
Also considered posting my own personal gaming history, but I would’ve had to go back to the 80s for that. e_e
i was babysitting a little boy and girl once and the boy asked me if i had a boyfriend and i said “no!! but i have a girlfriend!” and he said “like a friend thats a girl?” and i said “no like a boyfriend but they’re a girl instead of a boy! we still do couple things but we’re just both girls” and he said, without missing a beat, “oh ok! are you gonna marry her?”
like it’s literally that easy for kids to understand

Obama on gay adoption
yeah totally ruining this country what a horrible guy
Fun fact: Obama has attempted to fix almost everything that he promised to fix, but the republicans have voted almost all of his bills out of congress. He’s not the problem.
