I am waiting for the articles on Harry/Dougie from Mcfly, Logan/Kendall from Big time rush, Jack/Alex from All time low, Jared/Jensen from Supernatural, Darren/Chris from Glee, Tom/Max from The wanted, I am patiently waiting for the articles, the links to blogs dedicated to them and also links to some analyses on why Zerrie is fake, please, I am waiting.
Right, you won’t do those because no one paid you to because no one is trying to hide those.
Remember that lovely article (not from the daily dot but still) that compared Larry shippers to racists who believe that Obama wasn’t born in the United States? That was lovely wasn’t it.
It’s funny because the moon landing conspiracy and the 9/11 truther conspiracy theory can be shown to be unsupported if you know a bit about science and engineering… oh yeah, and there plenty of websites and articles explaining in researched detail why these theories don’t make sense.
But god forbid a group of predominantly teenage girls come up with the ~completely irrational~ conspiracy theory that two famous boys in the entertainment industry are gay and closeted. Because no one in the entertainment industry is ever gay and closeted! What a crazy idea!
If a bunch of adult men come up with a conspiracy theory, people write a bunch of articles dispassionately disproving it, and call in scientists and engineers or whatever to support their point, and it’s used as an opportunity to educate the public.
But if teenage girls come up with one then all they get is mockery and derision, because obviously teenage girls are stupid, and obviously they must be wrong, no actually research or consideration of the points they make needed! If teenage girls think something is true, let’s take the worst and stupidest of their points and over-publicize them, and completely ignore all the smart things they have to say!
Never underestimate the power of the media and society to make out teenage girls to be the stupidest people on earth.
So my interview with the DailyDot about the Sterek Campaign was published today.
… I have no idea how this happened but wow, I’m so grateful for all the positive reaction we’ve been getting so far. This fandom is seriously amazing!!
