See, that's the thing tho. TV/movies/books can be harmful. Ideas can be very harmful. What you show to people matter. That's why representation matters. That's why strong female characters and LGBT characters matter. TV/movies can go a long way towards helping to normalizing LGBT people, or making people sympathize with a POC character, and so on. And this works the other way around as well - when shows/movies are perpetuating problematic ideas. So no, it's not just whatever.

Yeah, but you know what the root problem with that is? People taking it as instruction manuals. It wouldn’t matter what’s being shown on TV if TV wasn’t given such an importance in people’s lives. That’s what I mean. Like, I didn’t watch a lot of TV growing up, so all the problematic messages on it? Didn’t affect me. Didn’t matter. That’s my point.

I understand that representation matters. I do. And I understand the power that these things can have. At the same time it’s like, look, if I ever have kids, I’m not going to depend on TV to teach them that gay people or women or POC are people and have feelings and so on.

Aside from all that though - we all agree, I think, that things like OUAT’s tendency to kill off POC characters or trivialise their roles in the story is problematic and reflects a larger issue in society. It’s a good excuse to talk about those issues and draw attention to them and make people think. Even the fact that it’s something they often mess up has value because it prompts people to talk about it and it makes people aware that yes, this is still a problem, this is something to work on and to keep in mind.

This particular case is not like that. We don’t all agree on what it means. Some people see it as sexist and problematic. Other people don’t. Not because they don’t think sexism is bad, but because they don’t see it as sexist in the first place. Some people see Emma and Killian’s relationship as hugely problematic - and if I saw it the way they see it, and agreed with their interpretations, I would think so too. But I don’t. And the way I see and interpret it, it’s not problematic, and not harmful.

This case is not as straightforward as the “kill your gays” trope or OUAT’s consent issues or POC representation issues. I agree that those things are problematic and harmful. I just don’t think this particular instance is as clear-cut.

To be fair, the gang robbing store with cheap avengers masks is a scene taken directly from the ultimate comics, where Homecoming draws a lot of inspiration. Now, would they have adapted it if Suicide Squad didn't make the big bucks? Lmao, probably not.

yeah i mean i just find it funny, the masks are so tacky and ugly tbh lmao and like you know the joker staging an attack like this makes sense and is pretty funny in my opinion like he’s just taking a shot at batman it’s not a new thing he’s always been obsessed with the bat but random robbers doing that makes no sense to me idk. But you know it’s just funny, marvel has always been lowkey copying DC it’s no news lmao

Whoa! I had no idea that my opinions about Heiman would cause such a big discussion! Sorry about that. I am not disrespecting Heiman and its fans, I swear! All I'm saying is that while Heiman does have its good points, in the end, the relationship itself just doesn't feel real to me. Nobody has to agree with me. Heiman is not a bad ship, I can honestly see what's the appeal in it. Who knows? Maybe it will do Cartman some good to have a girl like Heidi. But for now, I just feel very "meh" with it

Yeah, I started out liking the idea of Heiman a lot, but with the way it panned out their relationship is very blatantly insincere. I mean, it’s built on insincerity. And I don’t say that with contempt. I just call it like I see it. It’s kind of silly that there’s such backlash for simply having a view on the ship as it is in canon. You can make ships whatever you want in fandom. We’re not stopping anyone.

What do u think about star vs the forces of evil

im so indifferent about it like i dont dislike the show but i cant bring myself to like the show because it’s just so wholly mediocre to me in every single way im just very :| towards it. Like ive seen bits and pieces of it because my sister watches it occasionally and nothings impressed me. Like everything feels recycled from other shows(not literally just in essence).. the style is generic the colors are generic the character designs are generic pandering to the specific demographic they want (kids and teens from liberal/democratic/left-leaning families or kids with similar ideals like the audience of su and shit like that) and idk it feels so overplayed??? Like yeah ok we’ve seen these themes a million times can somebody do something new pls lol….. Also not trying to say left-leaning cartoons are bad they’ve just gotten to the point where every single show looks the same (in my opinion).

What do you guys think about Zayn's new single? In my opinion, I kinda wish it was just Zayn singing. :b

It’s really catchy! I love his voice a lot and the way he sings his solos is amazing and yeah if it was just him the song would be even more great but its really good!

to non-autistic people

no, stimming is not an autistic-specific thing and everyone stims! it’s the intensity and the amount of it that makes it a special characteristic of most autistic people, it’s okay for people without autism to buy stim toys and to say they stim. a lot of trauma victims use stim toys and stim for comfort purposes and it’s not cool to tell them that it’s not “for them”

“I NEVER THOUGHT I’D SEE, A TIME WHEN YOU WOULD BE
SO FAR AWAY FROM HOME, SO FAR AWAY FROM ME.”

posting photos with your significant other, sharing posts about them, and publicly discussing your boyfriend/girlfriend is great when you are happily secure and completely confident in your relationship - it’s even better when your significant other reciprocates and does the exact same thing. but when it is seemingly one-sided and photos are shared almost to flaunt a relationship just for the purpose of validating it, then maybe you should re-evaluate why you are parading your relationship around social media to begin with. 

I like the idea of Killian asking David for his blessing, and here’s why.

He doesn’t need it. We don’t even have to argue about that. If Emma and Killian want to get married, they’ll get married. It’s been well-established that Emma does what Emma wants, and Killian does what Killian wants. Neither of them need anyone else’s permission. I mean, what’s David gonna do, stab him? Come on.

But two things. First of all - Emma missed out on her royal upbringing and all those princess milestones. Killian has been the one to catch her up on them. He escorted her to her first ball and made sure she got her first dance, he kisses her hand and treats her like the princess she is. So it makes total sense to me that Killian would follow the traditional steps as much as possible and treat the whole thing like he’s a suitor wanting to marry the crown princess.

And here’s the other thing, and the reason why I really like this move. David (like Killian) is from a realm where, one would imagine, men do generally ask the father of the woman they want to marry for their permission or their blessing. And despite that, David has not been a part of any of the major moments in Emma’s life. He gave her up as a baby and got her back twenty-eight years later, at which point she’d already found and lost her first love, had a child, and done all kinds of things that David would never, in a million years, have imagined (or wanted) for his little princess. She’s living with a pirate, and we saw that while David was happy for her, he was also a little sad to “lose” her to an extent. None of this is what he ever thought would happen when he became a father to a little girl.

Also, David has been living in the twenty-first century for maybe a year. He grew up in a pseudo-medieval world with very different social norms and values and then he was in a coma for almost three decades. Yes, he’s got some traditional notions that prompt him to ask about Killian’s “intentions” and punch the guy who slept with his wife. That’s David. That’s who he is.

Asking for his permission here means a) following a tradition from his realm, and b) involving him in this part of his daughter’s life. So I like it. It’s not Killian and David making a decision for Emma, and it’s not actually about needing permission. I mean, they don’t need to get married at all. They already live together. Getting married will change nothing. So why? Because of the symbolic meaning. And the same applies to asking for David’s blessing.

It’s not about Emma and Killian. It’s about David. And it’s considerate and respectful and just nice and it shows why Killian has a place in this family, because he gets it.

I’ve had people respond to some of my meta about Pearl with citations of certain episodes and lines like, “Yeah but Pearl said this in [scene where she was really off and breaking down] so that must be what she thinks” and I’ve always felt like there was something Incorrect in using those scenes as “evidence” of her actual opinions but I could never put into words what it was so I never responded and?? I think I’ve figured it out now?

I’ve noticed for a while that, with certain exceptions, there is a general and  -jarring- difference in the way neurodivergent + mentally ill fans tend to interpret Pearl and the way neurotypical fans interpret her. I think that probably most NT people see moments of extreme emotion (so in Pearl’s case, “Rose’s Scabbard,” “Sworn to the Sword,” “Friend Ship”) as the times when a person is most honest–when the walls come down and the truth comes out. And ND people can experience them that way too sometimes, but more often, like, autistic people, mentally ill people, post-traumatic people, tend (basing this on myself and people close to me and people I follow on tumblr, so, don’t claim to speak for everyone, but) to see times of uncontrolled emotional turmoil and breakdown as times when they are Not Themselves, when the things they say come from desperation and confusion rather than their rational thoughts. For autistic people, stressful situations and the emotional responses that accompany them can be overwhelming and inhibit logic, causing thoughts that were once habitual but now disproven to come to the surface, or nagging insecurities to be voiced as if they are The Factual Truth. A major component of most if not all mental illnesses is the constant persuasive repetition, from parts of our minds that we have no control over, of things which we KNOW are not true. And when we’re stressed and vulnerable, it’s harder to listen to logic, the conscious self, the part of you that knows better, the part you that’s “you.”

“I need someone to tell me what to do.” “On the battlefield, Steven is what matters–you don’t matter.” Letting Steven fall off the platform. Trying to stay with the spaceship when it was about to blow up. All of these are things that Pearl said and did when she was in extreme states of stress, grief, and mental instability. All of them are specifically refuted and condemned, by Pearl herself, as soon as she’s back to baseline.

  • “What you’re saying may be true, but it doesn’t matter.”
  • “Rose made me feel like I was everything…I see now how much you two really care about each other.”
  • “Oh, what would she think of me now…”
  • “I could have killed us…I’m so sorry, Steven.”

^^^^THESE are statements Pearl makes when she is “herself,” rational and in full control of her perceptions. These are the statements we should be judging her character by. Neurodivergent and mentally ill people are more than the lies we constantly have to fight against. A breakdown says nothing about you, who you are, or what you believe, other than that you are mentally ill or under overwhelming stress. The action taken AFTER a breakdown, the willingness to own up and fix, the strength to understand that your illness isn’t you, says everything. I love how SU captures that. It’s something we should be paying attention to.

i absolutely hate it when people say “football is just a game” no its not just a game, its not just men running after a ball trying to get the ball into the net, its not just passing the ball to each other, its not “just a game” and that might sound stupid to people but its so much more, its the fans, its the enthusiasm of the fans, its the scarves, the flags, the banners, the cheers of the stadium, its the songs the fans sing during the game, its the passion not only the fans but also the players have for the game, its about the dedication and the love the players and the fans have for their team, for the sport its the feeling you get while watching your team, its the feeling you get when your team wins an important match, its the feeling you get when your team loses, its just the feeling you get while watching the team you love and watching the cheers and the celebrations. its also more than just a game because it unites people, it brings together so many cultures because so many people support a club and they all live in different countries supporting this one team  

football is just so beautiful and there will never be anything more beautiful than football

Johndave week - Day 4: Hurt/Comfort

Haha shit I’m late?? I haven’t done comics in literal years soooo. Yeah, this is something I think about in terms of John quite a lot. I can’t help but think it might bug him a lot now and then, even if he fixed a timeline, and when confronted he might lash out. Also, bonus pic;
