I get asked this a lot, but I realized I never publicly answered it. I got asked this question about 10 times today alone.
Originally, in case people don’t know this, it started as a therapy project where I was asked to take my childhood hero/heroine and put positive things I should be saying to myself on her face. It helped me a lot, and I thought other people might like to see them, so I posted them on my blog. I started getting a lot of requests and submissions, and, not wanting to spam my followers and realizing this thing was growing, I started this blog to post the images and maybe some advice posts. Other people wanted to join in as other scouts, and I realized each scout on the show is very different and have their own messages, so I gladly welcomed co-moderators.
However, here are a few other answers:
- Sailor Moon has always spread messages about self-acceptance, feminism, etc.
- it makes a lot of people happy to see their childhood idols expressing positive messages in whatever way they can.
- All the characters spreading the messages canonically have the same values as the images we make, or at least very similar ones.
Apparently, a lot of people are angry about this blog because they do not understand the connection, and for that, I’m sorry. I just figured I’d try to explain.
