OWLS TOUR | He Only Wanted to Protect his People

Hello everyone!

Welcome back to a new OWLS tour.

If you are new around here, let me explain you what is OWLS before getting in the main topic of this post.

OWLS stand for Otaku Warrior for Liberty and self-respect, we are a group of blogger and vlogger who promotes the acceptance of everyone regardless of their gender, sexuality, ethnicity, religion and/or disabilities.

Each month, we are given a topic and using the pop-culture as support we gonna explore it.

Last mother the subject was Happiness which was quite easy. For this month the topic is: “Vulnerable”

In the month of June, we will be discussing what it means to be vulnerable. To some individuals, being vulnerable could be seen as a sign of weakness, but in fact, vulnerability is actually a sign of strength. In this month’s posts, we will explore what it means to be vulnerable and how certain characters in pop culture glamorize vulnerability. When do we show our vulnerability? How do we express vulnerability? Why should we show vulnerability? These are questions that we will be discussing in our posts featuring characters that show vulnerability and/or sensitivity and what we can learn from them or even our own personal stories.

At first I wasn’t quite sure if I would take part of this tour or not, I was going through the animes I watched and the mangas I read, I stared at it for a good ten minutes wondering what I should take about. It’s only when I was close to get an headache cause of the much think that I start to get an idea of what I would talk about, but I wasn’t quite sure about it. My idea made sense, however I wasn’t sure if I could pull it off. I was about to go eat when I pass in front of the booksehelves I have outside my room and I got a flash. While I’m still still got quite sure if I can pull off this new idea, at least I knew a little more the direction I wanted to take.

Last month the prompt was “ADORE” which was really fitting for February. For March is “Feminine”

“In honor of Women’s History Month, the OWLS bloggers will explore the concepts of femininity and feminism. We each have our own definition of these two terms and we will explore our definitions using “feminine” characters from various pop culture fandoms. We will discuss how these characters are “feminine” or show signs of a feminist agenda. We will also share our personal stories about the amazing women that supported us in our lives as well as sharing experiences involving women’s rights, oppression within the patriarchy, and/or issues of growing up as a woman or having a feminine persona.”
