Going to Analyze to SuperS episode where Mako was targeted now.

adventuresofcomicbookgirl:

“The Fated Partner! Makoto’s Innocence!”

Okay so I am going to ramble on about this episode from a gender relations perspective now because I love it a lot and you guys are still listening to me and by doing so you have created a monster

Basically, this episode starts out on a really sweet note. Mako is really into this dance and wants so badly to dance with a guy there, but no one asks her because she is too tall and strong etc. So Ami just goes ahead and asks her to dance.

It’s a really great moment of what is a reoccuring theme throughout this episode- even if the guys are too stupid to see how great Mako is because they are intimidated by how she is outside the accepted gender boundaries, her girlfriends see how fab she is and will always be there to support her.

(Also I really adore Ami and Mako’s friendship. It’s actually there in the show a lot if you look for it, there’s several times when the two of them are just hanging out together alone or working together to fix the problems of the day. They clearly connect by being the most practical and level-headed members within their group trying to calm each others down, and both have some struggles with self esteem, and Mako really looks out for Ami like a big sister and is probably about as super-protective of her as she is of Usagi- remember when she gave her the advice that her Senshi duties didn’t mean she couldn’t experience young love and have fun with Urawa and she shouldn’t neglect herself, or when she swooped in to shield her and beat up the brainwashed boys that accused her of cheating and nearly murdered them all for daring to badmouth her friend- and Ami really worries about Mako’s self esteem too and tries to give support, like here, and she’s always the first to try to steer Mako away when she gets down on herself. I think they both consider themselves the caretaker of each others emotional issues, which is pretty sweet. One thing I love about Sailor Moon is all the girls have pretty individual, specific and complex bonds with each other if you look hard.)

Also, Ami and Mako say “fuck you” to the gender norms by being two girls dancing together and not caring that the rest of the floor is boy/girl couples and having a ball and  being more amazing than anyone else on the floor. The rest of the dance floor doesn’t condemn them for it either, everyone gathers around to cheer on the girls for their excellent rug cutting.

image

Mako even casually lifts her partner up with one hand, refusing to hide the strength that set her apart and made the men in the room avoid her, but straight up flaunting and having fun with it because she’s not afraid to be herself when Ami supports her, while the audience stands impressed.

Tigers Eye notes Mako and the positive attention she’s getting, and even though she’s not on his “list” of women to target (she actually is, but he left her picture), he decides to use her to attract other girls. He is unable to see anything about Ami and Mako’s display other than “oh that girl got attention, she will be a good tool” and can’t consider her as a person with feelings. He completely uses her, because she’s just another woman, after all. But Mako, so starved for positive attention from men, is instantly smitten by having an actual good experience with one on the dance floor, and is determined to repeat the experience. Tigers Eye lies and says he’ll return, and Mako, earnest and passionate in everything she does, is determined to wait for him to make good on his promise- as long as it takes.

Looking through my womance tag, I found this- I’d forgotten what an interesting episode this was. I’d like to analyze all the “attack on the Senshi plus Mamoru” episodes of SuperS, because most of them had really interesting subtext.

femmefilipina:

but, bbygrl, why a tura satana appreciation day?

[tw : rape]
she’s a total babe. duh.
she’s japanese, filipino, cheyenne + irish. 
she was simultaneously a straight-a student in school while being viciously bullied for her heritage + size and punished by her parents for getting into fights. i mean, even without the straight a’s, she was strong and endured feeling isolated at home and at school.
she’s a fellow rape survivor — “Walking home from school at the age of nine she was gang raped by five men. According to Satana, her attackers were never prosecuted and it was rumored that the judge had been paid off. She tells how this prompted her to learn the martial arts of aikido and karate and, over the next 15 years, track down each rapist and exact revenge. ’I made a vow to myself that I would someday, somehow get even with all of them’, she said years later. ‘They never knew who I was until I told them.’”
she began living on her own at the age of 13, after her parents married her to a 17-year old and she wasn’t having that bullshit. i can’t even imagine what that was like.
she was an extremely successful burlesque dancer, and even when she got pregnant at 19 she danced through the first eight months of her pregnancy! and yeah, she still made BANK. 
faster pussycat! kill! kill! — a cult classic john waters apparently calls the greatest movie ever made. i still haven’t seen it, but from what i’ve read it portrays the three female leads (tura satana is the LEAD lead) in positions or power that normally men are portrayed in, and that’s allll the way back in the 60’s. she did all her own stunts and fight scenes. the majority of satana’s styling and one-liners, and some additional key concepts of the film, were satana’s own doing.
after being shot by a former lover and staying in a hospital, she decided to study nursing and she did just that. she even briefly worked as the dispatcher for the lapd.
tura satana passed away on 2/4/2011, but she’s still amazing and one of my inspirations as a woc, especially as a mixed-race asian rape survivor struggling to embrace my sexuality. <3 and that’s why i’m giving her her own day! just who she was makes me feel good about me.
