It’s the people who defend him. They’ll ignore the murdering and killing and the attempted enslaving of earth and pick up on one little thing and twist it to make it seem like he did a good thing.

That’s exactly it!  I love Loki!  Loki’s awesome, as a character!  But I can’t stand the people who act like he’s an innocent or try to excuse his behavior.  All I can think is that people defend him because he’s handsome and charming, which is frightening because people get away with being truly evil in the real world by being handsome and charming.

The Vatican last year said in its doctrinal assessment that the nuns’ group was tinged with feminist influences, focused too much on ending social and economic injustice and not enough on stopping abortion, and permitted speakers at its meetings who questioned church doctrine.

okay but can we talk about how the church says american nuns are focusing too much on ending injustice

Yes, tell me about the evils of feminism and how trying to stop social and economic injustice is against church doctrine. I expected their stance on abortion and that’s not likely to change, but I’d like to point out that the one thing that crushing feminism and disallowing work on social and economic justice have in common is controlling women.

Gender Alignment

So, recently, George Takei posted the following picture that’s been going around for a while.  It’s your basic description of character alignment.

Alignment

Now, besides the inevitable debate over whether Picard is actually Lawful Neutral, it’s generally a good chart.  Fun and entertaining.

A friend of mine, though she likes it well enough, couldn’t help but notice that it is a bit (read: extremely) male dominated.  Having not much better to do with my time, and liking to create random projects for myself, I’ve decided to bring balance to the universe.  To that end, I created a female character analogue to the above chart.  Behold!

Though there’s certainly going to be some debate (there always is with alignment), I think this is all fairly accurate.  In case you don’t recognize them all we have:

  • Lawful Good - Professor McGonagall (Harry Potter)
  • Neutral Good - Kaylee (Firefly)
  • Chaotic Good - Starbuck (Battlestar Galactica)
  • Lawful Neutral - Captain Janeway (Star Trek: Voyager)
  • True Neutral - Taun We (Star Wars)
  • Chaotic Neutral - Emma Frost (X-men)
  • Lawful Evil - The Baroness (G.I. Joe)
  • Neutral Evil - The White Witch (Chronicles of Narnia)
  • Chaotic Evil - Harley Quinn (Batman)

It’s entirely possible that I’m a geek.  Let the debate begin!
