HIATUS BEGINS NOW

Hiatus has begun again. There's some final thoughts for the adults if you're in NSFW mode. See ya later!
arcroyale
The week is over, and our hiatus has begun. With that, I leave you these final thoughts.

On a memorable blooper of Family Feud, the question was "Something you find in any horror movie." The contestant responded with a girl running without clothes. He was teased for his answer, and got buzzed incorrect.

Sad thing is, he's not exactly wrong. A while back, I did a run of the Friday the 13th movies in honor of the day itself landing in October (and I'm surprised a new one wasn't released that day!). I started to play a drinking game with the amount of times certain scenes happen, stuff like Window Kills, Failures to Secure the Kill Against Jason, Kills After Sex, Kills After Baring Breasts...

Yeah in case you couldn't tell, there's a lot of unnecessary nudity in that franchise. Despite how cool the first movie was, the movies seemed to really go all out with female nudity and sex scenes, and I'm not really sure why.

I think I might have a clue, though, and it has a lot to do with how adolescent these movies seem. These movies already have enough "awesome" gore to titillate the violent-minded 18-year-old male audience, now add in some sex and we're all clear. The strange thing is, it never seems to happen to males, for one reason or another. They get killed, sure, but not after having sex, or not after getting nude.

This sort of thing is very damaging for how men treat women, since it tells men "yes" but tells women "no." That is, "feel free to horn in on the nekkid girl, guys, but don't you ladies dare get nekkid yourselves unless you wanna get brutally murdered/raped." This kind of thing both celebrates perversion and denigrates women, and it's a terrible thing to do.

So that's what I've been doing on Friday. Have a great October!

Let's showcase some sexiness, shall we?

Here's a fun picture! The guy is so hot, they had to censor his nipples! Stuff like that isn't often seen with males as much as females, but the guy's body, combined with his pose, means we simply had to! I think I saw this in Kill La Kill once or twice...

I don't have much to talk about, so have a What Would It Look Like with Ms. Bellum! The hair covering her breasts is my idea, since her hair is just so big. I guess now we know why she's "too sexy" for 2016!

How'd you spend your Friday the 13th? I spent mine laughing at all the sexism in it. It makes a great drinking game!

Here's a picture I really like for one simple reason: It's more focused on Fluttershy being beautiful as opposed to sexual. The female body is very much attractive, and this shows it in a good light that's more like an art piece. Though one must wonder why she's nude in the first place, given how shy she is. Maybe she's not BodyShy...

Ask ArcRoyale #6

Another week of motion, another question. Let's get on it, shall we?

Today's question goes something like "Dear ArcRoyale: I think the reason that male nudity is used for humor most often is because it challenges their masculinity, that is, it emasculates him and thus is funny because of that, which is kinda hard to do with a woman. What're your thoughts on that?"

That's almost not a question, but I'll try and answer it.

Two things throw a monkey wrench into this argument. First, there's male nudity used to titillate the audience just as their female counterparts are. You know, stuff like The Martian, X-Men: Days Of Future Past, or most of the Terminator movies. That kind of thing uses a lot of attractive guys for sexual purposes, making it pretty similar to female nudity of the same kind.

The other is scenes where the humor comes from the fact that the guy is too comfortable in his own skin. Aside from boys in cartoons, there's also stuff like Stephen Fry in the Sherlock Holmes sequel. The thing about those is that the humor comes from one of two things: embarrassment over the guy being hot and people drooling over him, or disgust at the guy being ugly.

Believe it or not, there are both of these cases with regards to females as well. A scene in the [adult swim] show The Oblongs uses an ugly girl's nudity for comedic value; and while the attractive nude girl in Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates is covered, the unattractive one is out in the open. Examples of the girl being "too hot" need only look no further than Not Another Teen Movie, where Cerena Vincent plays a nude foreign exchange student.

Now here's the pickle: A lot of my examples come from R-Rated or at least PG-13 stuff, stuff for adults. Children's media still keeps female nudity mostly hidden, yet male nudity out in the open. Despite the covers being unveiled for adults, they're hidden for kids. How do you explain this discrepancy? Unless, of course, the answer is "The producers think the female body is 'inherently sexual'," which simply isn't true.

In our current society that's pushing really hard on feminism, deflowering women doesn't sound fun. It'll take a while for this to really develop. So while humor over emasculating men may be okay right now, deflowering women isn't quite just yet, since we're currently in the phase where we try and lift up women as powerful. I have faith things will level out eventually, but only with a lot of time.

So I just listed three examples that show the argument is nonsense. Yet, it's still used. Maybe things will change soon, but it won't start by just assuming things'll get better automatically. We gotta take the first step. Once there, only 999 more miles to go!

Monster girls in the bath! Is there anything cuter? Well, there might be, but I haven't seen it yet. And this pic is indeed cute, with the two in adorable poses, clearly relaxing, and just having some time to wash away the struggles of the day. Or in this case, um, the night.

Here's something the Fox censors are too scared to do! It's another time where we show the answer to the question of "What Would It Look Like?"

Here's Lisa, totally embarrassed and totally nude. I originally got a pic that had her pearls, but I decided to have them removed. If she ever got her moment on the show, this is what it'd look like. Maybe she looked like this while she was swimming in the Fermentarium... whatever that is.

A good art style can diffuse a lot of sexuality from a picture, turning it into something adorable. This is an example of such an art style: The stylized nature of the face and anatomy help make the picture look more adorable than alluring, as is the case here. Though, I'm sorry kid, but no costume is no costume.

You know what's really scary? This example that shows Yes, It Can Be Done comes from the reboot.

Indeed, the reboot may be divisive and in my opinion full of wasted potential, but it did have a scene where the Girls take a bath without any shame. Granted, the scene lasted about two seconds, but with the gag they were trying to go with, the fact that they included a bathtub moment and went pretty far with it is pretty impressive. Remember, this is a series that cut out Ms. Bellum because she was "too sexy" for them despite never intended to be.

Still, the reboot forgot one thing. Even if Buttercup were around, she wouldn't be in that bath anyway.

Oh right. I have a blog, too. That's kind of a thing I do.

I wanted some Gravity Falls here, too, because that's sorta Halloween-themed. In this case, it's a funny little recreation of The Birth of Venus with Mabel in the title role. Homages to classical art are great because they put things in a historical perspective, and can be used for fun gags. Still, who does Mabel think she is; Lady Godiva?

There's nothing scarier than some no good executive saying "No Girls Allowed!" But this time, not even a boy goes unscathed.

Another one with the Doraemon dub, this time the episode "Transform, Transform, and Transform Again!" In that one, Nobita drinks too much of a drink that lets him transform into whatever's on his mind, mostly turning himself into animals. He quickly loses control of his power, and turns back to human form naked, then later on for a gag turns into Shizuka.

Of course, Disney XD, despite just having moments like the last show, ended up censoring the episode for their version, "Transformade." Indeed, Nobys lower half is totally censored, and Sue ends up being covered in smoke. Worse, a very revealing shot of Shizuka is removed completely. I'm not even sure why this is allowed; because it's Disney XD could be one reason, but...

A lot of anime has a history of being comparatively censored in comparison to western cartoons. Whereas a cartoon would make moments of showing blood special like in Batman, anime on kids networks can't show it at all, like with Dragon Ball Z. The same goes for nudity; anime nudity is often a lot more censored than cartoon nudity over on kids networks, even for boys in children's cartoons. I'm not talking about the fanservice stuff, I'm talking about stuff Dexter's Lab does all the time, but other anime dubbed for children's networks can't do once. It's clearly not a matter of material being "too sensitive for children" since the situations are the same!

I'll probably have more on this later, but that's for another time. In the meantime, witness another failure on the broadcaster's part.

The pumpkin counts, right? Anyway, nothing fancy this time. Just a cute little girl in the bath. What more do I have to say?

Krizeii didn't make it in time. Main plan it is!

This one isn't mine, mostly because it involves something we don't often see 'round these parts: genderswaps! The situation is the same, the level of clothing is the same, the character is the same... but the gender is different! It shows how this kind of thing would work if a girl were involved in the kind of situations this boy was.

Just a thought. You know, since Star wouldn't work as well.

October is here, so I wanted to do some Halloween-themed girls. I don't have many, but the ones I do have should be enough. Also, just to let you know, depending on how fast Krizeii can work, we may have a different pic for our Role Reversal than intended.

This is a fun pic because of how awkward it is. I love how Mandy is trying to make the best out of the situation by just trying to get on with it. Also, naked Grim is simply funny as all heck because he's a skeleton. More naked than anyone on this blog ever!

Our week has concluded after a slight delay, so I leave you with these final thoughts.

First off, we have just enough content to justify another week of this! We'll start this up again next week. Just know we'll be doing another Doraemon thing, in case that turns you off.

Now for the thought of the week. Ahem.

The sad thing about being a mad genius is that one is often misunderstood, and their misunderstanding leads them to be outcasted from society. People got arrested for saying the Earth was round. People got blacklisted for saying the Earth revolved around the Sun. And it's no surprise that a guy like me sees trouble as well with my crusade.

DeviantArt's rough standards make posting stuff like mine impossible, and every day those standards get stricter. 4chan's mods have become even more strict as of late, to the point of deleting even the censored material that my work is based on.

The only place left for me to go is some weird websites, but the numbers of those keep shrinking. Not only do they have to deal with Google's increasingly draconian policies, but they face takedowns on a regular basis until few remain.

All this means that in a sense, we're losing. That's not good.

I would urge you all to try and fight for this thing as much as possible. This problem still exists in the modern day, with people seeing pedophilia where none exists. Even boys are starting to fall under the grip of censorship. We need to start fighting back, or else we will fail in our objective.

Good luck, everyone. We'll need it.

Stupid Soup ruining my good week... Well, time for some sexiness!

I've said before it's hard finding good pics that aren't just gay, not that there's anything wrong with that, but it's not the purpose of the blog. This one may be, but it's interesting to look at. The feminine pose and the direct attention to his rear make him real eye candy, and the alluring expression is very inviting. I get a kind of pin-up vibe when I look at this one, and if the pose is feminine, it works great for this blog! So... is this the worst thing we've caught him doing?

Two pics in one day? Well, technically, this is a picture that represents a version of How Do We Do It? using an older girl, so it still counts as running a "show."

In this case, we have Miss Keane. What I like about this one is how modest she is in this pic. A lot of artists make Keane a little too sexy, but here she looks nice and adorable, especially with her modest bust. Krizeii's done stuff like this all the time for me, and I'm glad for it.

Due to the material I have on hand, we're gonna have to switch the anime and cartoon picture. Sorry...

Not much to say about this. I wanted to do this pic for a cute Vivio, but Nanoha's more prominent, so I'm posting this on our Older Girl day. At the very least, Nanoha looks like she's having fun. Maybe she's with Fate?

ArcRoyale's Personal Stories #2

I thought I'd share with you a moment from my life that was really eye-opening, something that can better help my audience understand me.

I already told you the story about my experiences with Sankaku Channel and DeviantArt, but those experiences led to some interesting things in my development. Like I was saying before, I found myself in a position where art that fascinated me was being restricted, and it could only be found in terrible places. For the longest time, I had naturally assumed I was worried about being a pedophile, someone attracted sexually to children.

But then I went to that secret society and started commissioning art. No longer did I have to wait for material I wanted to appear; I just had to buy it and someone would do the job. That gave me a sense of power I never thought I'd have, since I was in full control over what I received. And well, let's just say the stuff Xierra does for me is quite different from her usual stuff!

A while back, I discovered a discussion on my homebase about the nature of loli art, and whether liking it for the kids was bad. The discussion got into a bit of "well, you might not act on racism, but it's still a thoughtcrime" (which isn't a bad POV), but the thing I learned about this discussion was the idea of what the art I commissioned and saved represented.

I saved situations from movies and TV, but not true pornography. I saved embarrassing moments and cartoons. I commissioned characters I thought were cute based on episodes I really enjoyed. And there's also the sociology angle, where the pics match up with a pic from an existing episode, especially later on with Krizeii's recreations.

I came to the conclusion of one thing: The fact that it was about kids was never due to attraction to them. It was about appreciation for things that fascinated me, of cute characters, pleasing forms, and fun scenarios.

It's that kind of thing that helped me work out a lot of my issues, and I'm glad to have made that discovery. It fills me with a sense of confidence and makes me feel at peace. I'm not a monster, far from it. I'm a fan, and this is how I express my fandom.

Now if only there were an easier way to explain all that...
