I NOTICED A THING

Starscream was obviously remembered that Megatron doing that to him scared him and so it must work on other people

This story is about starscream growing up
getting his own starscream (rattrap)
and his own unique autobot nemesis 

"I learned it from you, Megatron! I learned it from you!”

#What makes this even more interesting is that Windblade hasn’t done a goddamn thing to him#and yet he’s repeating this creepy intimidation tactic with her like she’s someone that’s personally betrayed him.#Starscream man you just don’t do that kinda stuff willy-nilly.

I swear I’m not saying this to further the joke about the parallel, but he’s afraid of Windblade because she potentially has the same sort of power as a prime. Starscream is reasonably paranoid that because they’re currently living in Metroplex, and she is the only one able to communicate with him, even if she doesn’t intentionally try to power grab she could very easily form a rallying point the same way the Primes did around the Matrix. That is why Starscream is insistent on fixing Iacon and playing off Metroplex as unstable and uninhabitable.

Sometimes, I seriously wonder how anyone ever successfully accomplised anything in this show.

I think this was the episode I yelled at the screen the most. Just ask the Primes to name all of you, it’s so frustratingly easy! But no, we had to go out and hold stupid contests!

I’m kinda pissed that feminists of all people are making the Windblade mini-series as their own, claiming things like “IT’S WRITTEN BY A WOMAN AND IT’S ABOUT WOMEN OMG!!!!!”

No.

It is written by an IDW writer who has worked on other IDW series before (the two Prime Dinobot series, in fact)

and it’s about a fictional character who happens to be a female without it being the leading plot point in any way or shape.

Nobody in the issue gives a damn about Windblade or Chromia’s gender. Ironhide doesn’t give a damn, Blur doesn’t give a damn, even goddamn Starscream doesn’t fucking care. The only one who tried to ask was Rattrap, and he didn’t even get an answer.

So yeah, we still have no explanation of how other female Transformers exist in a universe where the only one so far was the result of a morally ambiguous experiment done by one of the most deranged scientists of the IDWverse.

Jhiaxus created the IDWverse’s first female and technically the first transgender. Of COURSE she’s going to be insane and bloodthirsty after that. Does this make her any less of an interesting character compared to her “male” brethren? No. Likewise, is having a female character written by a female writer a big deal? Not to me it isn’t.

If you start treating women differently than men, you’re only accentuating the discrimination which you’re trying to fight against. Yay, a woman is writing TF issues, big woop. Yay, TF issues have now more girls in them, another big woop. I don’t see all of that. All I see is writers and artists with talent writing and drawing characters that are interesting to follow. Windblade could be a male character, or written by a male, and it wouldn’t change shit.

But to some people it does, because they fail to consider the fact that genders aren’t everything. Sigh.

I really don’t mean to be rude, and I apologize if it reads like that at any point, but, I feel like you’re missing the point a bit.

I’m not sure why you’re annoyed or somewhat spiteful towards feminists, but you are and it seems to be coloring your perception of why people, especially feminists, are celebrating Windblade as something written by and drawn by women, about women.

Its not something that is normal, that a somewhat main-line transformers comic -which will become an ongoing if it sells well enough- is being written by a women. And drawn by one. And it’s also not normal that the main characters are all “women”, in that they go by female pronouns and such. So, because this rare event has happened, people are celebrating it. They’re enthusiastic that a good transformers book happens to be written by women with female coded characters as the main cast.

Yes, the Prime comics written by the same author of Windblade are under rated and under celebrated, but that doesn’t diminish the importance and the quality of the Windblade book. These are books that a lot of people have been waiting on, and was something that a number of people were doubtful if they were going to be good or not. And wonderfully, it turns out that the first issue is solid.

And the fact that the femmes were female is practically a non-issue is also another plus.

No one is taking your books away, no one is making it all about gender forever, no one’s treating the women differently and making it so women in comics can’t be normalized. They’re celebrating, and celebrations do wane after a while. People shouldn’t be begrudged for celebrating positive victories.

I hardly see how it can be considered a victory. You and others seem to imply that Sarah Stone and Mairghread Scott deserve recognition for Windblade only because they are women, and not because of their own respective talents.

That’s part of what infuriates me. Of course I understand that some people -and not only male, contrary to popular belief- were dubious at first because “ew women”, creating a faux-debate which resulted in the conclusion that disliking Windblade = you’re sexist. I myself was insulted in such way for being untrusty of Windblade and her gang because of the fact that FemFormers, in this continuity, technically didn’t exist outside of Arcee (a concern which still hasn’t found any answer to this day).

But there is so much more to Windblade than a petty gender fight. And I feel like the term “victory” is innapropriate here. There was no struggle for anyone’s rights. And I just wish people would stop using Windblade as an argument for feminism. Can’t we just all sit around and enjoy it without some people claiming that they enjoy it more than others?

That being said, I thank you for taking the time to answer my rant while remaining polite about it from beginning to end. You did bring some valuable points too. Thanks again for that c:

The fact that you are trying to tell people what they should and should not consider a feminist victory or achievement, the fact that you think that equal representation is a ‘petty gender fight’, makes you really, really offensive.

Gender inequality doesn’t come in to being because people point it out. It’s not some ephemeral creature that gains power through belief. It gains power through being ignored. Through being brushed aside. Through being accepted as ‘just a part of society/human nature’ or ‘not important’.
And yeah, the creators’ achievements should be remarkable because they are women and because they are talented, but the fact that they are women works against them immensely. Being recognized as female marks you as a demographic of people who can, and have, been annihilated from the history lessons, from classrooms because, despite their amazing talent, they were women. The fact that you think you have a right to be infuriated because talented women are being recognized as talented women and not talented people is pretty damn sexist. Because you’re trying to ignore the fact that they are women, which is a really, really, really big deal. They’re not talented despite the fact that they’re women. They’re not talented apart from the fact that they are women. They are talented women. And you cannot separate that, or what that means for the industry they are in.
Bottom line, you can celebrate a woman who is talented for her talent, but the fact that it is a woman being celebrated is definitely important. Especially within a male-dominated arena.
Fact is, women are treated differently to men. And the treatment is nearly universally negative. And misogyny is not a male-exclusive club, or a penis-possessor club. Misogyny and sexism is so pervasive, so ingrained in our society, that women feel it toward each other. And toward themselves.
Every victory, no matter how small, is a huge deal.
Equal representation, equal rights, equal opportunity is not about saying that men and women are the same. Or that trans* and cis people are the same. It’s about saying that differences are not a reason to treat people like they are lesser. It’s about giving each and every person equal and fair opportunities and representation.

You’re telling feminists, and people who seek out equal representation, what they should be thinking. You’re trying to impose your approval on where they view their victories as existing. That is a marker of oppression. That you are arguing against people determining their own sense of achievement in representation.

Equal representation, and equal rights, is not just rights to vote, or bodily autonomy, or self-determination. It’s also the subtle, pervasive things in society that slip under the radar because no one thinks they are important. But they are. Maybe not small things, but if you have millions of small things, billions, trillions, that’s how psychological programming happens in our society.

Unfair, unequal, and skewed representation is a part of pervasive oppression. And the fact that it can be dismissed as ‘less than important’ because you think it’s not worth the passion with which is has been greeted only demonstrates how important it is.

It’s not just a matter that just because you can’t see that it’s important doesn’t mean it is, it’s because you can’t see how important even this one, small, tiny thing is, that it is important.

'If you start treating women differently than men, you’re only accentuating the discrimination which you’re trying to fight against'

oh god I was tempted just to reblog this without commenting because there’s so much wrong here it’s overwhelming but in the end I couldn’t help it so let’s run through why you’re wrong about everything.

1. It’s not a big deal that the author and artist are both women
Take a look at this break down of IDW’s staff from Nov ‘12, only 
7.1% of the authors and 2.5% of the artists were women. Even if those percentages have increased- let’s be completely optimistic and say 5% in 18 months- women are HUGELY in the minority. Getting an awesomely talented team of women to write the multi-part series about the IDW ‘verses first cis* woman- this is a big deal. Especially with the way that we’ve seen male authors- especially Furman- handle the idea of gender in Transformers.

*Using cis here in the same way that Scott has applied it to Windblade- that she has always identified as a woman unlike Arcee

2. It’s not a big deal that Windblade is a woman
We can talk ‘til we’re blue in the face about how gender manifests in Cybertronians, but stepping outside the narrative for a moment makes it apparent that as they’re characters created by people coming from a western interpretation of gender the entire cast of IDW Transformers are male-coded. All of them use male pronouns and none of them are given the sexual characteristics [predominantly: boobplates, lipstick, high heels] that the other ‘verses use to identify ladyformers.

How many characters is that? Going just from the point in time when Windblade enters there are at least 8000 Cybertronians who returned home [and I’m going to bet closer to 10 000 by this point], plus the 200 on the Lost Light. We’ll stick with 10 000 to make this easy; with Windblade, Chromia, Nautica and Arcee in play this makes the ratio of female to male coded Cybertronians 1:2500. Holy shit. Going of the top of my head in MTMTE there’s at least 60 plot relevant characters- all male, in RiD it’s only about 30, with Arcee as the only woman. Not looking good there.

In addition Windblade is the first female character to be headlining a miniseries- in fact the only previous title featuring a woman was Spotlight: Arcee, which leads into

3. Arcee’s origin and resulting mental instability are totally reasonable
Let’s step outside the narrative again and look at why the hell Furman THOUGHT that women needed to be explained. This is a series about giant, alien robots that transform into vehicles; where having an arm [or a head] blown off is treated is a flesh wound, and it’s commonly accepted for them to live for millions of years. Yet the point of contention- the thing that needs to be explained away- is how there can be ladyformers. As though being a woman is so unnatural that it’s not only something that has to be manufactured- it’s some kind of sick torture. It plunges headfirst into problematic stereotypes about transgender women and Furman’s response to Scott’s announcement to retcon the presence of women in IDW was petty and unprofessional. Arcee’s in-universe reactions might be logical based on her experiences, but media does not exist in a vaccuum, and making the only woman in IDW mentally unstable, hating the fact that she is a woman and turning her into a ruthless assassin might be ‘interesting’ but is not relatable. 

4. Nobody cares if Windblade and Chromia are women.
I feel like this is the point where I need to make a tacky, glittery gif that just says ‘this is the whole point’ in capitals. As I just said, up until now being a woman in IDW was UNNATURAL. The fact that the ‘verse is finally stepping up to a state of ‘there are women and we don’t have to explain that because women just exist’ is both one of the happiest and saddest things I’ve seen lately. Happiest, since being a woman shouldn’t need explaining- it should be the kind of thing that Chromia can brush Rattrap off of asking when he tries because it’s a ridiculous question- but saddest because it’s 2014 and we’re only NOW seeing this happen.

5. Windblade could be a male character being written by a man and it would be exactly the same.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Oh yeah, if Windblade had been a male character there still would have been the uprising of angry male fans complaining about women taking over. There still would have been the talk about IDW being willing to ‘take a chance’ on this new character, and I’m sure that you’d still be here too, talking about how people are over-reacting to the fact that Windblade is a dude. Keep telling yourself that.

So, to recap: Windblade is IDW’s first cis female character after hundreds of male characters, headlining her own miniseries- the first multi-part series for a female character, which is being both written and drawn by women in a male dominated industry, and you’re complaining because we’re excited.

Newsflash dude- we’re CELEBRATING. Representation of women in Transformers is well overdue, and while Windblade might not be a magical fix-all it’s a damn good step. No way in hell we’re about to turn down the party because you can’t cope with things not being about you for five seconds. If Windblade isn’t to your taste feel free to go back to the 200+ previous IDW issues, I’m sure you’ll get your ‘no girls allowed!!’ fix in no time.
