no offense but why do people constantly talk about problematic gerard has done and completely ignore things frank has done. or they acknowledge them and are like "ok well gerard did this" like it makes me so mad. i hate when people act like something terribly problematic isn't a big deal because their fav did it.
i don’t have an answer for you. i’m going to kind of go off on a tangent here but i think there are a couple things that contribute to the disproportionate gerard dislike in some pockets of fandom:
he was the most visible member of mcr and was frequently the face of mcr. anything they didn’t like about mcr automatically translated to something they didn’t like about gerard
by extension, he gave the most interviews and publicly talked more than anyone else in the band. more talking = more potential to strike a nerve with someone
he made the final call to pull the plug on mcr and people blame him for the band breaking up
before twitter and before he became so open with fans, it was really easy for folks to project an imaginary version of gerard onto him and then get really disappointed when their vision of him wasn’t true to life. especially with regards to his sexuality
some very very weird strain of frerard fans who think gerard broke frank’s heart and now everything is a pissing contest between them
and i think a lot of these things still color people’s opinions of him to this day. i can’t change anyone’s opinion on a dude they’ve resolved to hate but it’s bizarre to me that when he shows willingness to grow/learn/change/educate himself people will say that he’s pandering or not being sincere or bring up frerard. all you can do is unfollow and search for better vibes.
I find Aaron and Sam's relationship v creepy. She began dating him when he was 18?? That's so weird. Idk just unpopular opinion.
no, dude, I agree with you 100% (not because I love the dude) but because I just don’t find it right to have such a giant gap in age in a relationship (whether the man or woman is the older one) it think it’s wrong since its like total different generations and mind sets and what not and I really feel uncomfortable when I think about it tbh…but if he was happy enough to marry and have a kid with her then props to the man, his happiness matters more than anything (I mean, I hope he is happy with her!) but that’s just me and my comfort zone…there’s many people out there who like dating/marrying others who are way older because they think they’re ‘wiser’ or whatever (which really isn’t true but what ever)…to each is own!
It's so messed up that anti-Marrish ppl change facts. Lydia actively goes to Parrish. Abt watching Tracy she says "I'll keep you company" and he laughs and says "I think I'll be ok." He wasn't trying to get her alone at night. He even asks her about being in school. She insists on coming, bringing him coffee, being with him. You can see by his smile that he likes her but she was totally the one pushing it. It's ALWAYS her asking him. She's also ALWAYS the one who starts physical contact too.
what are you talking about iT’S PRETTY CLEAR THAT MARRISH IS ABUSIVE!!
Back again with more questions! 1) How do you put on the mask? I put on the elastic today and the jaw mechanism works great but the top half of the mask slips off my head if i look down. 2) How does the eyelid mechanism work? I understand how the eyes move left and right, but I'm not sure how the eyelid is even placed in the mask. 3) should I be posting pictures of this so you can see? :o
Questions are good! Questions are progress.
1(b) : But you’re asking how to keep it from slipping once it’s on. The answer is padding! I used upholstery foam for the front and top, and a strip of craft foam in the back (because I didn’t have enough space for more upholstery foam). The mask should fit snugly, but not press too hard in any one place. Think of a bicycle helmet: it has the rigid shell roughly the size of your head, and then strips of padding on the inside to better conform to your unique head shape. The texture and surface area of the upholstery foam also has a better “grip” on your head than smooth foamcore will.
Those thin, rigid foamcore pieces will also start digging into your scalp after a while, if left unpadded, so definitely add padding even if the endo seems to stay in place without it (I wore the Foxy rebuild on the first day of Fanime, without padding, and at the end of the day I felt like my skull had been warped into a permanent buttcrack ;_;)
2) (Someone else asked this question and I’ve got about half of a response drafted already–I’ll make sure to post that one in the next couple of days)
