- Mood: Dumbfounded
I just feel like getting this out.
The Chipettes are not sex toys.
They have always been highly sexualized since their creation, both by fans and, admittedly, by Bagdasarian Productions and the animators themselves.
Right now we're going to discuss The Chipettes' sexualization in the fandom.
Let me start off by saying something....
Brittany, Jeanette, and Eleanor Miller are eight years old.
Now, I have looked at plenty of Rule34. I check for it every day. I have written smut fanfiction, but they are adults in it of course.
This isn't just about The Chipettes' age though. That plays a big part in why it's bad, but they are fictional characters so it's not as bad as it would be if they were real...
What makes me angry is that a lot of people act like The Chipettes aren't even their own characters and are only there to be sexually pleasing to the viewer and to The Chipmunks.
I know a specific person, who I will not mention the name of, who pretty much views The Chipettes as Alvin's sex toys. That's it.
But that's not what The Chipettes are there for....
Sure, The Chipettes were created as girlfriends for The Chipmunks. That is one of the reasons they were created.
They were also created to sing girl songs.
But they evolved into way more than that. The Chipettes are each their own character who are just as much main characters of Alvin and the Chipmunks as the boys are. Now, I love The Chipmunks a lot more than The Chipettes overall myself, but I adore the girls too and hate seeing things like this happen.
Now let me get back to what I was saying.
A lot of people, both fans and non-fans who just see them and think "WOW, SECKSY" oversexualize The Chipettes to a point where it's just sickening.
The Chipettes are not and never will be little sluts who have sex with everyone they see and have gigantic breasts that bounce everywhere and dress in skimpy clothing.
THEY'RE FUCKING EIGHT.
As for sexualizing the CGI Chipettes, that's fucking gross because they are little animals. Do you go outside and think about how sexy that squirrel up in that tree would look if it had giant tits?
I sure hope not.
This journal isn't turning out like how I wanted it to when I went in rant mode so I'm going to stop now but you get my point!!!
Amen to this journal!! Amen!!! I HATE it when the Chipettes (or any cartoon characters) are portrayed that way. It makes me sick.
Right on DeadlyNova. I hate it when some people use The Chipmunks and The Chipettes to do sexual things. That's just ruining the good name for them.
I'm not saying it's bad to use them in sexual art or stories, but I'm saying acting like The Chipettes are not characters and are just sex objects is bad because it is also saying the same thing about women in general.
They were also created to sing girl songs
So, that's why people make The Chipettes sing girl songs with Audacity
You just made yourself out to be even more of an idiot than I thought you were before.
You are just...I have no words for how much of a fucking moron you are. Since you're a troll, though, I think some of that is an act.
The Chipettes were created to cover girls songs and to sing their own original girls songs...not to be ruined with repitches. The Chipettes can not sing anything with audacity, just like The Chipmunks can't. Those are just singers with their voices mutilated.
That's just gross. Really, they're just kids... and they're CHIPMUNKS. And this line: "Do you go outside and think about how sexy that squirrel up in that tree would look if it had giant tits?" Gave me snorty giggles XD.
I read a "fanfiction" that a friend of mine linked to me yesterday, and it had the CGI Chipettes getting drunk, going clubbing, and all sorts of other crap. And of course, Alvin was the only one of the boys mentioned in the "story", and it was in a way where it seemed like he was dating all three of them. I seriously felt like puking.
That's actually what inspired this journal!
While I understand that fandoms, even when made for kids, can still be enjoyed by adults...some people should not be allowed near kids' fandoms.
FINALLY! I've been waiting for someone to talk about this
Girls are not toys, people!
Girls are not toys, people!
Treating eight year old little girl characters like that, or in the CGI Chipettes case, actual rodents that should NEVER be thought of as sexy, is seriously disgusting.
