and her co stars:

superskara  asked:

Wait Melissa's sister isnt straight? where did you hear that? also im so tired of all the Melissa is a lesbophobe nonsense. How is there any proof to support that claim other than her laughing along to a joke a co star made? she didnt even realize that the joke came off as homophobic and insensitive to people ugh.

Well her sister Jessica has a twitter, and:

Plus, from what she tweets, it was just kinda obvious that she likes women and men??? Honestly don’t know where these people got the impression that she’s straight.


As for if Melissa is homophobic, I’ve talked about this subject quite a bit. (Here’s a breakdown of why I don’t think the initial event was actually homophobic at all, as a glance into the conversations I’ve been having and where about I stand.)

But you’re right. 

The only reason Katie later (after laughing at the joke along with everyone else, initially) emphasized validation of supercorp shippers (something for which Melissa showed strong agreement with, and something Katie mentioned that they had already privately talked about being a positive thing before) was likely because she has first hand experience with f/f shippers who deal in subtext and knows, because of what they told her, how personally important it is to us. 

She recognized that it was insensitive.

But even Katie didn’t think it was homophobic, or she wouldn’t have laughed in the first place.

But I think it should be noted that people are throwing around the word “lesbophobe” ‘lightly’.

For people who are actually fans of Melissa and would care if Melissa were homophobic, there’s no way to take this lightly. But the majority of people who are engaging in this casual meme-ifying of ‘melesbophobe’ are Katie fans, some of which who are prepared to jump ship for the first sign of another female character she can play off of. (*cough* reigncorp *cough*)

But it’s possible that many don’t actually think that Melissa is homophobic.

One person I talked to who called her a homophobe said that they didn’t really think she was. But they were doing it anyway.

I’ve seen people say that Melissa is homophobic but that she’s hot/they’d fuck her anyway. I don’t know about you, but if I genuinely think that someone is homophobic??? I’m no longer attracted to them?????? So I doubt these people really believe she’s homophobic, either.

It’s likely a move done out of anger.

They know Melissa isn’t homophobic, but they call her it anyway, because they’re mad at her and want to get back at her. They could care less how she or her fans feel or if it’s actually accurate in any way.

I’d also wager that some people think that others truly think she’s homophobic, so if they still like her in some way or wanna reblog something about her, they have to first call her homophobic so as not to be accused of thinking the wrong thing.

So many don’t want or need proof that she’s homophobic or even a sound argument for it, cause it’s all just one big joke to them. And they don’t have to stop making this joke even though it’s incorrect, cruel, and hurts queer people who are actually fans of Melissa, because they can use their own hurt as an excuse, their supposed moral rightness as a shield. 

They’re like a king claiming divine righteousness in their actions while—if the people don’t wish to challenge the application of the belief system itself—all anyone else can say is, “yeh but ur being a dick.”

Personally, I’m of the “cutting people’s heads off for little crimes is dumb idc if god said it’s okay” vein, across the board.

Watch: Donald Trump watched Finding Dory on Saturday after signing the Muslim travel ban. Now Ellen DeGeneres has some words for him

DeGeneres wasn’t the only one that saw the irony in Trump’s movie choice. Her co-star, Albert Brooks, who voiced Marlin in both Finding Dory and Finding Nemo, tweeted, “Odd that Trump is watching Finding Dory today, a movie about reuniting with family when he’s preventing it in real life.”

Benophie AU: Roadtrip

(Ben footage from x)

The beat drops. Taylor Swift clears her throat. The best response to controversy is more music. It’s only fitting that “…Ready for It?,” the second single from Swift’s upcoming album Reputation, premiered last night via a trailer for ABC’s fall season. This is the perfect song for soapy, don’t-call-it-a-guilty-pleasure television, all too appropriate for a woman who named her cat for Meredith of Grey’s Anatomy.

If 1989 was Swift’s attempt to rewrite pop music in her own image, “…Ready for It?” finds her doing Top 40 pop on everyone else’s terms. The ingredients are familiar - a beat borrowed from Sleigh Bells’ “Kids,” her voice channelling Ellie Goulding, Sia, Rihanna. Swift has never sung more expressively, nor sounded more in tune with the way modern pop production uses the voice as an instrument. Some will call it a concession to pop radio - where all roads lead back to Rihanna.

But the lyrics, which tick off a dark list of fantasies, are unmistakably Swift. “Me, I was a robber first time that he saw me/ Stealing hearts and running off and never saying sorry.” Is she confessing that she’s a maneater? Or is she mocking her public image? Unlike “Blank Space”, which was a clear wink at the camera, she might be doing both at once.

Instead of accelerating into an anthemic chorus, her voice floats up into the heavens. “In the middle of the night, in my dreams/ You should see the things we do, baby”. It’s not just a major-key, traditionally Swiftian chorus – it’s one of the prettiest melodies of her career. Deep down, she’s still the same wide-eyed romantic Taylor Swift. Or is she? “I know I’m gonna be with you / So I take my time.” The beat drops; she pulls the rug out from under us: “Are you ready for it?” Is this a dream, or a nightmare?

And how long has Taylor Swift been holding onto that “He can be my jailer/ Burton to this Taylor” line – a reference to Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor that could only be pulled off by a mind-bogglingly famous woman with the same name? Liz Taylor was an acclaimed performer whose fame often overshadowed her art; sounds familiar. Alongside Richard Burton, her most (in)famous husband, she co-starred in 11 films. Were their tabloid controversies a distraction from Liz’s art, or did her whole life – her characters, romances, public image – become one grand performance?

Taylor Swift, like Madonna before her, refuses to let the media control her perception. But Swift’s not asking us to buy into her personal drama here – in fact, she’s never taken herself less seriously. “Look What You Made Me Do” opened with a line widely interpreted as a Kim/Kanye diss – “I don’t like your little games.” On “…Ready for It?”, she responds emphatically: “Let the games begin!” Swift’s playing the villain, and she knows it.

The accepted wisdom is that Taylor Swift uses her singles to strike back at her exes, or fuel feuds with celebrities. But pop songs are about identification. They’re not literal press releases about public figures – or why would we, the listener, find any emotion in them? While the internet speculates over her politics, argues about how likeable she is, Taylor Swift reinvents herself. That’s what pop stars do. It doesn’t matter whether or not you like these singles. If you acknowledge that this is a new Taylor Swift, she’s already won.

Ultimately, “Look What You Made Me Do” and “…Ready for It?” aren’t about Kanye, Katy, or Calvin. They’re about Swift herself, and her lesson to us: you don’t have to give a damn about your bad reputation.
