I beautiful and inspired photoshoot from eva-merry.tumblr.com
I wouldn’t take ruffnuts creepy moments out of httyd2 because they were fucking hilarious, I’m just saying that the behavior isn’t a healthy expression of sexuality. Like, the whole reason it’s funny is because no one would do that in real life. Like I keep reading shit saying girls like Tina from Bob’s burgers portray heathy sexual expression and like… No they dont? She wants an army of sex zombies that’s fucking gross. That’s necrophilia. That’s not healthy.
honestly, if ruffnut was a guy he’d be labeled as a horny creep. And she came off as creepy as fuck in the film I thought. I don’t think this counts as expressing sexuality in a healthy way. Especially since the guy she hits on openly expresses his discomfort about it. We wouldn’t want a male character to do that so why have a female character do it?
#LET ME TELL SOMETHING. DIVERSITY IS NOT JUST ABOUT HAVING DIFFERENT SKIN COLORS, OKAY? IT’S ABOUT HAVING ACTUAL DIFFERENT PEOPLE. CHARACTERS THAT ARE BELIEVABLE AND DIFFERENT AND REAL. I’M SO TIRED OF SEEING MOVIES, ANIMATED OR LIVE ACTION, HAVING FEMALE CHARACTERS WITH THE SAME FACE AND EXPRESSIONS AND BODY LANGUAGE WHO BARELY EXPRESS THEIR SEXUALITY OR HAVE NORMAL, NATURAL REACTIONS AND INTERACTIONS AND EXPRESSIONS THAT MATCH THEIR CHARACTERS WHEN AROUND THEIR LOVED ONES. LOOK AT THESE THREE. THEY ARE ALL STRONG FEMALE CHARACTERS, BUT HOW DIFFERENTLY THEY ACT AROUND THE MEN THEY LOVE. LOOK AT THEIR EXPRESSION WHEN PLEASED OR EXCITED. JUST LOOK AT THESE THREE. LOOK HOW DIFFERENT THEY ARE. HOW REAL. HOW BELIEVABLE. HOW BEAUTIFUL.
#httyd2 #has some really good female characterswho stand alone and not in the shadow of a male counter part #ruffnut is probably more developed than her twin brother #astrid doesn’t need hiccup to save her she can fight all by herself and she is the one to comfort and give him advice #and valka is a fearless dragon warrior but also a loving mother who wants her son to forgive her and to approve of her and understand her choices
also, if this is an american op, I find it ironic because red foxes (which are what’s shown here) aren’t even native to our continent. But if it’s a European op then nvm.
common sense, really
While this is true for many species it’s really not the case for foxes. Foxes chose to move into urban areas not because of a lack of habitat but because of the availability if food in towns and cities. Despite being only a fraction of the size of a rural fox’s territory, an urban fox territory contains around 100 times the amount of food a single fox needs. With that much easily accessible food lying around it’s no wonder foxes chose to colonize urban areas! Why scrape a hard living in the country when you can live the easy life and laze around getting fat in the town!
Foxes are also not typically forest dwellers. Ideally they like a mix of broken woodland, open farmland and grassland and do most of their hunting on woodland edges and farm fields. In fact, clearing forests creates more fox habitat! By clearing most of the ancient forests in the UK and converting it into farmland (as well as removing their natural predators) we’ve actually created a lot more fox habitat that allows them to thrive at much higher levels then they ever have done before. Urban foxes in the UK have a been living in towns since the 1930’s, long after the forests were cleared but before much of the major building that took place after the second world war.
Foxes also move freely between town and country. Foxes born in the town often move off into the country when they grow up, and foxes born in the country often migrate into towns. This is only possible because they have so much available habitat that they can freely choose where they want to live.
In short, while habitat loss is a big issue for many species it is not an issue for foxes. Foxes are highly adaptable and if they can colonize an area they will. Thus, they move into urban areas not because they have to, but because they want to!
