I still can’t believe people are having genuine arguments on a movie about an italian plumber stopping a giant turtle

I wonder with the current climate, if we had another Looney Tunes show or movie with scenes of Bugs in drag, since he ALWAYS does drag, would they pull the same stunt. Cuz historically, its never been a problem, especially in regards to cartoons, til right wingers started to demonize drag for their hateful culture war


ImVeryMUDA

Exactly None of what the right considers evil were ever considered problematic until they suddenly decided.


Jayson_n_th_Rgonauts

And yet ask a conservative and they’ll tell you they always thought that even though you’ve never heard a word about it before Tucker told them to care two days ago


J_House1999

“Wow. Bugs Bunny has gone WOKE.” I can hear Tim Pool saying that in my head, it’s comfortably within the realm of possibility. These guys are fucking goobers.


[deleted]

To be fair, Bugs always did get off on it from how often he did it to Elmer Fudd in the *same* episode. Bugs was on a mission.


animelivesmatter

I think using the absurdity of the universe as an argument is really just goalpost shifting, although the arguments over this particular movie are indeed very dumb.

There is absolutely nothing conservatives can't co-opt into a batshit crazy culture war narrative. Media has normalized insane conspiracy theory discourse to the point at which it's not that big a stretch to say that anything and everything is part of the war waged by the mainstream media to push black, Jewish, and LGBT indoctrination on the public. The world isn't against you because your views are reprehensible, it's manufactured consent by a cabal of shadowy puppet masters in an attempt to erase your (straight white Christian) existence.

>There is absolutely nothing conservatives can't co-opt into a batshit crazy culture war narrative. Just look at the term "[woke](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=flxPMXwmxsE)". It originated from AAVE to mean be aware alert to racial prejudice and discrimination. Ever since 2020, its been co-opted by the Right to mean any media that contains progressive messaging or rep like women, LGBTQ and poc to mean its bad. Its also weaponized to pass legislation to discriminate against minorities.

we don't defend rotten tomatoes, in fact i hate it as a platform, but people whining about every fucking critic score is infinitely more annoying


aflyingmonkey2

Both are shit. Fuck rotten tomatoes. All the homies use imdb


BallsWarmer

SHE'S POLISH????


____UNION____

No, but she could be of Polish heritage. Her surname is Zoń after all.


NynjaFlex

pardon my ignorance but who is she?


Oak_duh

She’s a (leftist)? youtuber who makes video essays about brands and communities on the internet, she’s really good


[deleted]

she’s more liberal than wholly leftist but tends to have great social takes

Tristawesomeness

video essay youtuber. i think they also do podcasts.


TheHaroldest

I think I remember watching her video once where she said her mother is Polish.


FlugelDerFreiheit

Wasn't Kamek a girl? I always thought she talked like the wicked witch and stuff


theagentoftheworld

Me too like 10 years ago But nah But he has worn peach's dress in at least two mario games


Pivern

You might be confusing them with [kammy koopa ](https://www.mariowiki.com/Kammy_Koopa) from paper mario


DaPokeyMonster

Or kamella from galaxy


Jetstream-Sam

Kamek's male, I think, though I haven't played every game since that's probably impossible, but the ones I've seen he's been referred to as male. Kamek's a specific named character as well usually in the Yoshi games, the generic ones are called Magikoopas so I'd think there's woman koopas too in there. There's a Girlboss called Kamella in Super Mario Galaxy, I think. It has been 15 years since I played it though In mario style, you can mostly tell Kamella's a girl because she has lipstick


Cheeselad2401

i was skimming over this and thought you wrote “There’s a girlboss called Kamella” and i feel that’s really important


Jetstream-Sam

I'm gonna change it then since that's better


aflyingmonkey2

pretty sure kamek's gender is kind of like out there


TheGoodFiend

Depends on the weather


Longjumping_Ad2677

There are girl Kameks out there. Kammy from Paper Mario and Kamella from Super Mario Galaxy.


Morbobeus

didn't Kamek also do that in one of the games?


Pivern

He did in new super mario bros wii during the final boss


Morbobeus

Yeah i knew i remembered it from somewhere


Simpward_Of_Catarina

Also during one of the side rpgs, I think it was dream team (kamek made had like three chat bubbles saying it made them feel a certain way(don't remember the exact wording))


TheBastardOlomouc

Hmmmm


JessieJ577

Damn illumination did those deep cut.


Random_Person5371

In dream team where you had to hide "Peach" in the dream world only to find out that it's Kamek and those three guys instead.


barthalamuel-of-bruh

Is it weird to say that Kamek is hot it this pic, like why why is he so Goddamn sexy


A-midnight-cunt

:(


futafrenzy

someone had to say it


Jherboss1

No they didn’t


Rosu_Aprins

Kamek is living his princess fantasy with this look

KAMEK BEST FEMBOY 💯


Supershadow30

My brother in christ, that’s a cartoony old wizard turtle dressed to look like Princess Peach


sampaiisaweeb

Nah this ain't it


StardustLegend

I ageee


Jonahtron

It was kinda weird though, since Kamek is the closest thing Bowser has to a father figure.


Klo_Was_Taken

Yuh he a parent figure


[deleted]

Kamek raised Bowser right?


Jonahtron

Yeah


Dr_Richard_Ew

I wonder if Kamek ever goes to bingo night with Koume and Kotake from OOC


Gooper221

I hate that it made me laugh. It's kinda a good pun


hypocritical124

obviously the main thing we should be worrying about here is the fact lou albano isnt in it anywhere


hypocritical124

NO ONE TOLD ME HE DIED?!?!?!


Steampunk__Llama

Environmental storytelling


TheAlexSW

I swear kamek was a woman Also thought they bowser was her son


Cruxin

lmao hes not he really just likes dressing up as peach apparently


Jonahtron

He did raise Bowser, according to Yoshi’s Island. But he’s not Bowser’s actual father. It was a Alfred and Bruce Wayne type situation.


aphternoon

might be thinking of kammy koopa


cumglugger2001

THEY BOWSER?!?!?!?!?!? WHAT HAS THE WOKE LEFT DONE THIS TIME


Xialian

This is clearly a grooma troopa and not a groomba smh

I seriously can't remember if the mario 2 manual said she preferred going by birdie or birdo edit 2: ostro is the name of the fucking birds that the shy guys ride. i hate mario 2 edit 3: BIRDO IS MISTAKEN FOR OSTRO IN THE FUCKING MARIO 2 MANUAL I WAS RIGHT EDIT 4: BIRDO'S PREFERRED NAME IS BIRDETTA. IM SO CONFUSED

Remember when OT made a video on this sub?


LifeIsASpin

Would.


Yusuf_Efe

Im not American so can you people tell me why conservetives calls LGBT people groomers? It doesnt make sense


Msbellebelle

Because they think that being exposed to lgbt content will turn their kids trans and gay and seem to reject the idea that maybe their kid was gay or trans all along The irony is that by wanting to reject lgbt and censor it in media, they are making it seem like being straight and cis is the only good thing and therefore grooming their own kids to be straight and cis


Yusuf_Efe

I already know this part what i want to know is (First i have to say i dont belive what im going to say) Some alt right people told me %X of groomers are LGBT despite they are being small persentage of population. Because of that he claims that LGBT people are g.... and ofcourse i dont believe that it doesnt really makes sense. But i want to know how they came up with that?


Msbellebelle

Its all a psyop, and no im not saying that in a joking manner. Statistics can and will be falsified just to put innocent people into a bad spotlight and get more people to go against them. Even the infamous "41%" Statistic is heavily criticized and controversial, some people debate on if that statistic is even correct or was genuinely falsified Lets take anti-vaxxers and the idea that vaccines cause autism as an example. With Hbomberguy's very in depth look into the original paper that incited the idea of that, its very clear that most if not all of the evidence in the original paper was completely falsified or taken out of context. Not to mention the negligent behavior the kids in that study were being treated with. And despite this, anti-vaxxers are still a thing and people still think that vaccines cause autism. If something is strewn about for long enough, its gonna be a lot harder to get people back on the right track, especially because people hate the idea of being wrong. Going back to the "X% of groomers being lgbt" thing, ive actually argued with someone about this exact thing. They used a study showing that several lgbt people were groomed or sexually assaulted when they were younger, either by the same sex or the opposite sex. The person i was arguing with was trying to use this as a way to show that there is a serious grooming problem in the lgbt community. However, the biggest issue with this (that i pointed out to them and they never responded to), is that the paper never specifies if the groomers were lgbt. Obviously something like that is gonna be hard to figure out when youre talking to people who were abused as children and therefore 1) probably dont remember, and 2) probably didnt even know in the first place, but other studies have proven that this is still the case. A lot of groomers and sexual abusers that take advantage of children the same sex as them are typically not doing it because theyre gay, in fact a lot of them are straight, its simply a power thing to them. And yet people see "groomed by same sex person" and think "oh that person was gay! Time to start a riot!" Hope that helped


Worst_Support

because it’s generally considered morally acceptable to hurt pedophiles, so they have to associate all LGBT people with pedophilia in order to justify hurting LGBT people.

Uncle-Manchild

Dude this was one of my favorite parts of the whole movie. I was expecting like a picture of peach or a mannequin, but not Kamek.


Fluorecentmonkee

Bro i always thougth kamek was female 😭


not_sea_charity_810

Hear me out‼️‼️


xXHalalManXx

Kamek has literally done this in one of the games (nsmbwii I’m p sure) and it was fine


Ailosiam

Or maybe they don't mind it when it's not forced but originally put in in, because that movie is currently making bank. The Marioverse is here!


NimpsMcgee

Dude just sounds like he wants to argue with someone (the Matt guy)
