Research study

Back in mid-May, I made a post outlining the proposal of my research study on language preferences. Well, the IRB finally approved the proposal, and now I can finally carry out my research. In addition to potentially publishing my paper in an accredited journal, I was also invited to the annual Voice Foundation Symposium in Philadelphia on May 26, 2015, where I’ll present the results of my study.

All that being said, I’m still looking for more participants to take part of the study. If you’re interested in participating, then CLICK THIS LINK for the 5-minute survey.

These are the participant criteria:

Participants and reblogs are loved forever.

He picks up more every time he goes outside….. They live in tall grass and are particularly numerous in the summer. 

The black-haired loaf must be Rime. :3
Raiden has his trio of canon ‘fans’… but Sam has SO MANY MOAR
And I think this is one of the few loaf!Sams that has an expression other than smug or devious.

Question for the internet: is Jetstream Sam an example of an actually sexualised male character? I mean, women clearly have lady boners for him but was he actually designed to given women boners or is that just an unintended consequence of his design?

Unintended consequence, I would say. I know people who feel no attraction to Sam what-so-ever, because they don’t like the facial hair, the long hair, the scars, etc. 

I have an unashamedly giant lady boner for him. But I mean, you can’t see any of his body.. the only skin you see is from his chin to the top of his head. Sure, he’s exotic, rugged, with a personality that you love (and also love to hate), but he definitely wasn’t designed to be a sex-bomb. His suit design isn’t nearly as sleek and form-attractive as Raiden’s. 

However I would  totally agree that he was purposefully designed to be a character that you would have a hard time hating. That was totally intentional. 

Everyone in that game has a great ass, anyway. 

I dunno… Sam’s suit design has thigh straps that accentuate parts of his booty…

Thigh straps are like the military/male version of thigh-high socks. They just ooze sexual feels…

I swear, half of the appeal of cosplaying SNK characters practically comes from the 3DMG holsters on the scouting uniform.

Also both he and Monsoon have (needlessly, in terms of functionality) over-exaggerated thighs for their suit designs to the point where Monsoon practically looks like he’s wearing a hakama… I not gonna lie, there’s something sexy about men with muscular thighs.

Sam also has a great variety of expressions that were animated with very careful attention to detail. His facial expressions are probably only second to Raiden’s in terms of realism and emotion.

tl;dr Sam was designed to be a bara.

Not your typical bishonen of lithe or feminine persuasion per se, but the creators were definitely like OKAY WE NEED SOME DUDE TO SERVE AS RAIDEN’S RIVAL AND FOIL… HMM… WELL RAIDEN HAS HEELS AND LOOKS LIKE A DRAG QUEEN SO…. /layers on the bara and badassery

I’d be lying if I said this thought never crossed my mind before.

For a character with a costume design that reveals literally no skin other than his face, Sam is nevertheless viewed as a huge sex symbol in the MGR fandom, curiously enough.

…then again, Megan Fox has an average-sized bust, yet she’s widely regarded as the next Angelina Jolie.

I think Sam’s features were molded to be exotic; his facial features encompasses both Latino and Asian racial qualities. That’s what boosts his appeal among fans.

Probably that and the whole alpha male thing.

And The Booty. You mustn’t forget The Booty.

Broverse

So in Broverse, I like to imagine that Sam sometimes plays the role of the unanticipated guard dog.

Like, some bad guy wants to rob the house and waits for the perfect opportunity when Raiden and folks are out. After the family leaves the house, the robber breaks in only to come across Sam chilling on the couch in his boxers, drinking a beer and perusing through a magazine. 

And the robber gets REALLY CONFUSED b/c who dafaq r u—Sam doesn’t look like a relative and who would’ve guessed a respectable, well-kept family like the Sears would sublet their couch to some weird Latino Japanese wannabe hobo?

And Sam’s just looking at him like… ‘sup bro’.

the next part of bad end is coming sometime this week

post-sauna fight scene

I dont know too much about Kaz and BB, but I’m hear to say that Bromance is the best mance of all mances. 

In Peacewalker, one of Paz’s hidden diary entry audiotapes reveals an incident where BB and Kaz get into a naked fight in the showers over Kaz’s womanizing nature. In the very end…

At last, the two men tired themselves out, and the bizarre scene came to an end. They looked at each other’s battered bodies, and then burst out laughing, embracing and congratulating each other on a good fight. It all seemed so idiotic. 
I still cannot fathom such behavior. But somehow I got the sense that for all his womanizing, Miller really only trusted one person, and that was Snake. There was no way I could ever come between the two of them. And at that thought I began to feel as if I had lost

BB/Kaz is Kojima’s attempt to out-gay the Snake/Otacon gayness all in a single game.

i have a friend who has been taking birth control since she was 12 because she’s anemic and if she didn’t take it she would bleed out excessively during her period and end up in the hospital

dont fucking tell me that birth control isn’t crucial to people

There are so. many. types. of. birth. control.  You want to know a type of birth control?  Abstinence.  You want to know another one?  Abortion.  You want to know another one?  IUD.  You want to know another one?  Cervical cap.  You want to know another one?  Male condom.  This list is going to go on and on.

Before you want to try and make a statement like this, you’re going to need to be a hell of a lot more specific about it, because I’m fairly certain that diaphragms aren’t keeping your friend’s excessive bleeding in check.  (Also, it sounds like she may have uterine fibroids.  I have a friend who had such severe bleeding she had to be hospitalized repeatedly.)

EHHHHH…. I agree with the “be more specific” thing, but I’m also the assumption most likely this friend is on birth control pills, seeing as that’s the most commonly prescribed medicine for iron deficiency anemia due to blood loss from heavy menstrual cycles. That being said, OP has a fairly good point in that birth control for a legitimate medical condition is quite crucial.
