A little bird told me that roleplayers bash on other roleplayers ‘cause they’re roleplaying with people they consider theirs..
I’m sorry, no one is no one’s, people have the liberty to RP with whoever they want, and we shouldn’t spread hate! This makes me feel so angry!
Can I ask you guys a favor? Reblog this if you think that roleplayers have the right to roleplay with whoever they want, no matter what.
Honestly I am so pissed off at what happened with that host pulling Harry in front of Louis. Since when did One Direction suddenly become “Harry Styles and these four other guys who we won’t even acknowledge”? It just makes me so angry that they push him in the spotlight constantly and don’t really give the others a chance. Louis dyed his hair and nothing has been said about it.
I’m pretty sure the boys aren’t mad at Harry for it because clearly it isn’t his fault. But I’m pretty sure it’s frustrating for all of them at times. Face it, even if you don’t know who One Direction are, you /know/ who Harry is. And that’s the problem.
This is just my personal rant.
I’m a Shinhwa Changjo myself, I’ve came across too many fans from other fandoms saying that “Shinhwa is just a bunch of old men”, “Why would you like Shinhwa, they’re so old” or “Who would want to watch 6 old guys dancing?” Let me just say that age is just a number, their age does not reflect on them, if you watch their variety shows, concerts or performances, I’m sure you’ll feel the same.
Even though I’m only 17, I have known Shinhwa for more than half of my lifetime. Sure, their average age is somewhat older than other idol groups. But, that doesn’t give you the reason to hate on them, do you judge people by their age? Do you hate your parents or grandparents cause they’re old? Besides, they’re only in their mid-thirties, and you guys make it seemed like they’re in their 60s.
Ask yourself, has your idol group been together for 15 years without changing any members? Did your idol group establish a company of their own? Shinhwa is probably the most honest & truthful group you can find in this industry. You may say that because they are the sunbaes they can do whatever they want, but fyi, they didn’t change a bit since their rookie days. That’s why they are the legends every other younger groups look up to, so before you come bashing them, you may want to think twice.
- Sorry, but I had to rant out my feelings somewhere, I’ve been hearing too much of these crap recently
Feminism, Social Anxiety, and a Conservative Household
When I spoke out against the Islamaphobic Facebook status, it was the first time my mother could see my activism. Overall, it was the second time I have spoken out (on Facebook) against something ignorant and shameful. This has been a big step for me - and it’s only the beginning.
As many of you know, I struggle with Social Anxiety Disorder. It’s really difficult for me to publicly speak out - behind this blog, I’m fine, because none of you know me personally. But on Facebook and in person, I always hold back because I’m afraid of being judged by people I come in contact with frequently (one of those small town perks,y’all!) I’ve been taking care of my mental health, though - by taking natural supplements, forcing myself to get through a speech class, and working on my own with cognitive therapy - and I’m finally getting better.
So when I saw that post, I seized the opportunity to put my new found confidence to use. Unfortunately, my words were not welcome and I received quite the backlash. But I didn’t let that stop me, and I pushed forward with what I had to say.
I have never been prouder of myself, and no one can take that away from me. Not even my mother.
As I predicted, my mother was quite upset that I spoke to someone “that way.” (But honestly, what does “that way” even mean? Calmly? Firmly? Confidently?) She told me that I had “quite the wicked way of writing” and that my words were “not done in a loving way.” Basically, she said this:
“Kendra, you were very rude in those comments. You called an adult “hateful” and “ignorant.” Those are not nice things to say. Besides, you never would’ve said that to her face; you have Social Anxiety, remember? You hid behind a computer screen and called those people mean things. You need to be kind and loving to those you want to understand your point. I understand you wanted to stand up for your friends, but sometimes you just shouldn’t comment. Your Uncle Alan posts a lot of weird stuff I don’t like, but I usually choose to ignore them and just leave it be. Why can’t you do that?”
I tried explaining that those woman’s words were far more hateful than mine, but she wasn’t having any of it. Do you know what else she did? SHE DEFENDED THOSE PEOPLE’S COMMENTS TO ME. She never once told me that they were wrong to tell me and my friends that we’re going to Hell. And that hurt.
I know she wanted me to apologize for my “ugly behavior,” but I’m not going to - in fact, I shouldn’t have to.
I think the worst part is that she believes my newly discovered feminism is stupid. She rolls her eyes when I mention things in a casual conversation, she scoffs when I bring up a sexist/racist/prejudiced post or comment, and she tells me that it’s silly to worry about equality when “we already have it.”
I love my mother, I do. But she’s changed so much. She used to be so accepting and open minded towards the different things in this world - until she started hanging out with this woman from our church (different woman from the Facebook post). She’s been such a horrible influence on my mother and I hate it. I want my old Mom back.
She used to tell me that love was love, and that everyone deserved the right to marry the person they wanted to spend the rest of their life with. Now she says “homosexuals shouldn’t marry” and that the Boy Scouts “are being ridiculous for allowing this.” She even said “Eww,” when a Time Magazine cover had a photo of two guys kissing.
She used to tell me that I could do whatever I wanted - that being a woman shouldn’t stop me from reaching my dreams. Now she tells me to “calm down on my feminist things.” She tells me to keep those opinions to myself and to stop overreacting.
But why should I? Why should I let statements like:
- “To hell with the gays - that shit ain’t right.”
- “Fucking Muslims. Why don’t we kill those damn terrorists?”
- “Girls cover up! Have respect for yourself!”
- “Abortions are for sluts - those pieces of shit murder their own babies.”
go without me saying something? I can’t do that - if I just let people say those things and not speak out against it, what does that say about me? What does that say about the society we live in?
You know what? I’m going to show my mother that she’s wrong about me. I’m going to show her that feminism isn’t something that’s “annoying” and “useless.” I’m going to show her I’m not letting my Social Anxiety hold me back - that it won’t keep me from speaking up. I’m going to show her that I’m going to make a difference in this world.
I refuse to let my mother hold me back.
Mishapocalypse was great because it was ONE. SINGLE. EVENT.
It was great because it was something new, something interesting, something that influenced the whole Tumblr for one day, something where everyone could partecipate.
It was great because it was unique.
I think everyone here on Tumblr is smart enough to come up with different ideas.
A Few Words About The DL Fandom
Now I may not be much of a fan of Diabolik Lovers…
However, many of my online friends are, so I try to pay close attention to the fandom and such cause I love my friends.
Now let me tell you what Ive seen…
The DL fandom use to be much smaller, but the people in the fandom were proud of it and the little independence they had of it. However, some wanted it to draw more attention while others did not. The reasons why varies from person to person, so I wont bother going over the ones Ive noticed or that have been stated. As time went by the fandom grew a nice slow, but steady, pace.
Though when the anime was announced, I notice quite a pick up of fans and the fandom has grown to a decent size and will no doubt only grow bigger.
Thus with all these new people the fandom has slowly changed to fit the common personalities of it’s followers, which seem to be much more different then the veterans of the fandom who are mainly big otome fans.
The fandom has simply turned into the normal result of a fandom that has to do with a heroine surronded by multiple men. It contains stuff like hatred of the main heroine, sluttly and vulgar referances and rape jokes, and of course, yaoi.
Now let me tell you what I think.
I believe the fandom is now overrun by younger people, which explains the new pattern of the fandom that is even now shifting into something different.
People will continue to nag and bite other peoples heads off and try to pirate the game and its translations from people like Narihira or Ilinox and other such things. This of course will be a blow to Reject and in the end may backfire on the fandom and cause a loss of funding for more DL stuff.
A lot of the girls are in it for the smut and many of the old veterans are complaining about how they don’t even pay attention to the story, but let me point out that is the image I think Reject gives them so of course they’re naturally going to be like that or attract those kind of people to the fandom. I first thought it was just complete smut until I actually did a little research and found it to be much more then that and to actually have a decent story.
Now the anime. The anime could be terrible or really amazing even, but it wont matter cause either way people will most likely think it’s terrible unless Reject aims for the demands of certain fanservice that will most likely make people like me cringe.
People will hate Yui for no reason. Being the amazing bisexual I am, I even have a little crush on her. Though I don’t care if people hate on her. Cause defending will only make the situation worse. Knowing that I like her is good enough for me and should be for others as well.
We will see many pictures of Shuu and Reiji fukin the shit out of each other. Not sure what to think of that.
I wont even talk about the fanfics.
So basically what im saying is that things are gonna change. Most likely for the worse. There will be many annoying people that you will most likely block or wish to bash in the head with a hammer.
So what I have to sadly say is deal with it. Don’t pay attention to the bad side of the fandom. Moaning about it or complaining and bitching wont help at all.
it will most likely make the situation worse.
So instead of moping around at how a good fandom is changing into what you don’t want, just stick with the people who view the fandom like you and focus on the things you like of it. Not of what you don’t or how it’s changing to what you dislike. Also don’t argue with others that don’t see it your way. Even if they are quite in the wrong with common moral values. Unless of course it’s something serious that may involve illegal action or risk of one’s life. But most likely it won’t often be the case, or at least I hope so.
Cause in the end,
its just a game and soon to-be anime.
Its not a life or death situation.

Do you know what really gets me feisty and pissed off? When Muslim males upload photos of themselves in bed with their girlfriends, have numerous photos uploaded on their social networking profile of near-naked models with comments about how much they’d like to “screw her” etc. but they have the audacity to think they have this divine and inalienable right to slander Muslim women on their sartorial representation and how they should “be wearing the hijab sister” or how they are such a “slut” for wearing certain clothes with the headscarf. I mean, I barely judge when it comes to practicing your religion, I don’t really care if they do or don’t but when they start condemning others, especially women, on how they aren’t practicing their religion accordingly, I feel like intervening and telling them to just shut the fuck up and sit down. They have NO right to say anything. I would never even look at a male if he possess such a moronic and fatuous attitude.
how to be a decent fucking human being
- throw your fucking trash away in the trash can where it goes
- read as many signs before asking idiotic questions
- when you move chairs/tables in restaurants put them fucking back where you got them because your party of 12 was obnoxious
- don’t yell at employees because they’re doing they’re job
- don’t make fun of people’s names??? they don’t hear it all the time
I can never fully understand how anyone can dedicate their time and effort into hating narusaku on a daily basis. Other pairing fans talk about how dedicated one was to the other and how they deserve the one they love bust completely disregard Narutos constant watch over Sakura and his multiple attempts to tell her how he feels. Isn’t supporting Narutos unresolved attempts at letting Sakura know how he feels an important aspect to the story? I guess I just can’t see how anyone can hate NaruSaku and think their ship is more canon or better maybe because NaruSaku is unresolved and I am waiting for their confrontation.
This quote right here is a prime example as to why people despise the Columbine tag/community and generalize all of the people involved as being immature, uneducated, uncaring, fan girls…
“he’s obviously is just milking the fact that he survived columbine and is now an attention whore.”
One of you morons actually went and said something like that! Are you kidding me?! This isn’t a game and Columbine isn’t a movie like your precious Zero Day is. These are real survivors who went through something so traumatic, something so life changing and something you immature cretins will never be able to even slightly understand. Unless god forbid you experience something similar or the same in the future.
Your behavior is absolutely disgusting and just embarrassing on your own behalves You have no respect and no real intelligence to back yourselves up so the only way you can respond to those who are calling you out on your actions are in bitter, nasty, sarcastic and immature ways.
These people are adults now, far beyond your years and your life experiences. Far beyond anything that the majority of us could even relate to. They don’t owe you shit! Especially if you’re acting the way you are, making silly little memes. Do none of you see how stupid you’re being? How inconsiderate and damn right dumb you look? Making silly little childish remarks about Brooks Brown, a survivor, is beyond foolish. You’re complaining about their apparent rudeness and the way they respond to some of you… but look at yourselves! You’re some of the rudest people on this site. The contradictions are pretty hilarious actually, the only funny thing about this entire situation!
One day, hopefully, you will grow up and I can almost guarantee you’ll be ashamed of the way you’ve acted and the things you’ve said. You treat these people like your puppets, like it’s your own little show. Even Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold. It’s madness! You’ve literally driven away any intellects or intelligence from the tag and the Columbine side of Tumblr. So well down, you can all now lap up each others ridiculousness. You’ve made the entire tag a complete joke.
