ok so if you’ve read the interviews you know that the dude behind madoka magica is a colossal doofus tool, which caught me by surprise (but really shouldn’t have all things considered) because I was reading completely different vibes from it.
so my different view of the anime series is this: magical girls are symbolic of compulsory femininity. keep in mind that this is a personal interpretation and it’s not perfect. it’s also incredibly rambling. don’t like… take this super seriously. Like if some dude gets all mad and tries to fight with me about magical girls and feminism I’ll let out a groan of exasperation so load it’ll be heard through the internet.
i wanna write a post about reinterpreting madoka magica as being about compulsory femininity but i don’t want to put in a lot of work to make it eloquent
girls who pretend to act stupid because they think it’s cute need to be slapped in the face with a brick
girls who pretend to act stupid because they think it’s cute need to be taught that their thoughts and opinions matter. so many girls are taught that being smart and capable is threatening to boys and will scare them away. please don’t hit these girls with bricks thanks
