I was born on October 31st 1985 A.D.
I'm a Caucasian male who lives in Racine Wisconsin.
I'm a Christian, I take the Bible literally, I'm a 6 Day Young Earth Creationist. I don't Identify myself with any Denomination, the Churches I sometimes go to are Independent Baptist, but I'm a Member of none, I was raised Catholic but I'm not anymore. I believe Salvation is by Faith Alone, and I don't believe you can lose your Salvation. I'm definitely not a Calvinist or an Arminian.
I do not believe Homosexuality is a Sin, I've studied all the Bible verses cited as claiming that, and their only condemning certain Pagan practices. Even Pre-Marital sex all together I do not believe is as condemned as people assume.
My Political views are also complicated to explain, I voted for Ron Paul and Chuck Baldwin in 2008. I'm liberation on about 95% of Issues, I despise both major Parties, I consider both the Libertarian and Constitution parties, but their flawed too.
I love reading books, including Comic Books. I like Video Games but mostly Nintendo. I consider The Dark Knight the greatest movie ever made.
I desire to be a writer. I have many kinds stories I want to write. From Young Adult Romance, to stories inspired by French Pulp Fiction and Comic Books and Anime, to Historical Epics, to Steam Punk SciFi/Fantasy. And plenty that merge some or all of those.
My beliefs have an effect on my writing. But I try very hard not come off a preachy, and I do want people who disagree with me to still find the stories entertaining and the characters likeable (or Love to Hate-able for the Villains).
I hate when Comic artists overdue the muscles in the male Heroes, even Batman as big as he gets in DKR annoys me, but at least he’s a normal Human.
It’s actually no scientifically possible for Superman or Wonder Woman to be muscular. The whole process by whihc normal humans build Muscles would be impossible in a superpower physiology like that of Clark of Diana.
But at least with Superman it’s done because that’s considered normal for a Man. With Wonder Woman it’s the opposite, culture conditions us to think a Woman must be far more “masculine” then normal for a Woman to be a credible Hero.
Diana was not always drawn as being Muscular, she was always tall, and this actress is tall. But originally she looks like a fairly normal Woman. The over Muscularizaiton began in the 80s mostly.
And I’m also tired of this Pop Culture etymology of the word Amazon itself implying size. The origin of the word probably comes from what the Berbers call themselves “Amazigh” since if the Myrina legend is to be believed the Amazons were originally Libyians. Latter the Greeks invented their myth of it meaning “one breast” to try and make them seem inherently weird. The ideas of Amazons ebing Giantesses comes way way latter, so I cringe when I see it used that way in Oliver Stone’s Alexander.
And it annoys me in general how it’s considered acceptable now to denigrate “skinny” woman for the take of making larger ones feel more empowered. All that’s gonna do is create a cycle of hatred and unhealthy behavior.
Hollywood is not trying to force anything on anyone, they put out what they perceive will sell. The people trying to force something on anyone on the idiots calling a Woman bad role model for little girls because they don’t think she’s “Curvy” enough. I’ve already seen that kind of attitude directed at this actress.
Gal Gadot is NOT Anorexic, she was a fitness trainer for the Israeli Defense Forces, so there is no way you’ll convince me she has an unhealthy physic. And she’ll probably go thorough some fitness training for the role like Cavil and Bale. Not everyone who does well in beauty pageants is a twig.
Neither Snyder miscast anyone in a Comic Book movie yet. so I trust his Judgment just like I did Nolan with Ledger, and Marvel Studios with Scarlet Johanson.
I care ultimately about acting more then looks, and if Snyder cast her I trust she gave a good audition. I care about looks enough that I would dislike if they’d cast either someone Aryan looking or an African-American, and I would be bothered if she’d been shorter then 5’8. But Gal is just the right type of Exotic, and she’s 5’9.
I believe women of all body types deserve to be empowered. Not just what one group of people consider to be the ideal.
I’m excited to see her finally make it to a Live Action Big Screen film. But I hope this is very small and does not distract form the main theme of seeing the long awaited Superman/Batman team up. I’m hoping she’s like the Nick Fury role.
An Israeli actress getting the role is interesting. I’ve heard she’s 5’9 so that’s just barely tall enough. but I trust Snyder and Goyer’s judgment, that haven’t steered us wrong yet.
Today is the release date of the book my story is being published in.
My story is last due to them being Alphabetical by Author’s Surname.
It also has an Amazon page now if anyone would rather order it from there.
I’m very excited.
you know you’re getting old when you watch the little mermaid and when ariel says “i’m 16 years old. i’m not a child anymore.” and you’re just sat there like yes you fucking are young lady stop it
Ya know I never did the whole prematurely declaring my self an adult when I was teenager. But the reward I get for that is at 28 my parents still treat me like a kid.
We may like mocking when Teenagers do this, but I’ve come to think it’s important for young people to assert their independence as early as possible if it’s ever to be taken seriously at all.
Ancient Jewish law considered you sort of an adult at 12, but your still not expected to leave the house and start your own family till 30.
