Hi folks. I used the phrase “thin, white woman” to describe Wonder Woman’s appearance in the marketing materials, not to describe actress Gal Gadot. However, for clarity’s sake, I’ve cut out the “white” from the piece. Carry on.
This is the incredibly true story of what happened in the Polygon chatroom when we found out about this:
Chris Plante: i promise i’ll write about that time i danced in my underpants to the adams family rap
Danielle Riendeau: YESSSS
Brian Crecente: OMG
Danielle Riendeau: I will comment about how I never left the house from ages 5-7 WITHOUT dressing like a ninja turtle
Chris Plante: hahah yes! danielle, i think we would have been childhood besties
Brian Crecente: Partners in KRYME
Danielle Riendeau: Chris, I think so too!
Justin McElroy: anyone else have the Coming Out of Their Shells LIVE Album?
Justin McElroy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8vWudZEoUTc
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – Coming Out Of Their Shells [FULL ALBUM HQ]
Danielle Riendeau: I saw the amazing live show at Disney World in like 1992, and got my picture with the turtles
Danielle Riendeau: and it was amazing
Justin McElroy: TRUE STORY
Justin McElroy: I once wanted to meet the Ninja Turtles and get Leonardos autograph in my autograph book
Justin McElroy: There was a massive line
Justin McElroy: My dad told me he would stand in line and get the signature while my mom bought me some ice cream in a shop nearby
Justin McElroy: 2 minutes later, dad had the signature
Brian Crecente: “signature”
Justin McElroy: I was TWENTY SEVEN before I realized the scam
Danielle Riendeau: ok, OMG, we should publish this entire conversation as like, Polygon writers react to Ninja Turtles rap song, share delightful childhood experiences
Danielle Riendeau: I also used to bring around my copy of the Secret Sewer Map everywhere I went JUST IN CASE I found the sewer
Danielle Riendeau: like, if I fell into it or something
Thanks, Numberless! I was lucky enough to get to check out and speak at Queerness in Games Con last year, and I had an amazing time. I agree with your last statement as well – these events really do give me hope. But they need to be supported!
