i know no one cares but i just need to make this post.

it is not fucking fair to say that no one gives miles shit for anything. some of us have actually been in this fandom for a long fucking time and remember that literally EVERYONE hated miles in season 13. everyone hated matlingsworth, everyone thought miles was a dick. everyone hated him. even i, self proclaimed protector of miles hollingsworth the third, disliked him at some points. but you know what else? miles always realizes his mistakes, he grows from them and he LEARNS and i find it pretty fucking annoying how zig stans are always calling him out and yet zig hasn’t changed at all from season 12. proof? he cheated on his girlfriend and called someone else a psycho in season 15. all of the miles hate is badly hidden biphobia/ableism. there. i said it. no one’s talking about it, so i’m talking about it.

THIS is why miles is so beloved by so many people and he’s not overhyped:

  1. miles is the only person to stand up for zoe when her rape first broke if i’m not mistaken. he was gross about it at first, but he learned his lesson straight away. he stood in front of a room of his friends and told them that it was fucked up to still play basketball when someone on the team was a rapist. even tristan, zoe’s best friend, cared more about the pep rally then her. miles said “fuck you” to bro code and quit. he kept luke away from zoe. he went to court wearing a “yes means yes” shirt. 
  2. zig stans tend to forget that miles wanted to end the stupid fucking beef he had w zig. maya told him to end it so he went to go and find zig like a fucking stand up guy and apologize and end it right there. if zig hadn’t attacked him like the bully he is, it would’ve ended.
  3. this is literally the best scene. miles is terrified of his father, but still he confronts him bc he’s not going to let him walk all over frankie and humiliate her. he stands up for his sister and gets in his dad’s face when he practically impales hunter. i grew up in an abusive household. do you know how many times i’ve had to protect my brother and sister from my dad? do you know how many times i’ve seen a similar situation on tv? only this time. 
  4. miles literally saved everyone at degrassi by talking down hunter in the finale and you know how he did that? by telling him he loved him. that simple. miles doesn’t need bullshit hyper masculinity to be respected “as a man” or whatever. he’s never depended on hyper masculinity. he took dance lessons as a child, he wears his cute salmon pants, he’s genuinely nice to everyone.
  5. even though stefan said something like miles is always fucking up things or something, he only does that for himself. if miles is angry, he’ll do something that’ll hurt himself, not anyone else. and y’all can try it with the “he hurt tristan in s14!” oh you mean when he was having an emotional breakdown that tristan didn’t even pick up on? yep! that one!
  6. miles is the only good man esme has ever known and this is a canon fact. esme truly loved miles and it had nothing to do with his looks or his social status. she loved him bc he was a good man who made her feel normal and okay and like her life wasn’t a total disaster. he treated her with kindness when no one else would’ve. and you can argue it was just for the drugs but when he thought she was suicidal, he didn’t leave her side. 
  7. he’s bisexual and mentally ill. bi mentally ill people are allowed to like someone just bc he gives them representation! it’s not that big of a deal! 

end this fucking biphobic ableism. end it now.

YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE REALLY REALLY GRINDS MY GEARS??

THE FACT THAT EMMA DATED PETER AFTER HE TOOK A VIDEO OF MANNY FLASHING THE CAMERA. WHILE SHE WAS DRUNK. SHE BARELY REMEMBERED IT HAPPENING. HE SENT THE VIDEO OF HER BOOBS TO EVERYONE. 

LEAKED NUDES CAN RUIN PEOPLE’S LIVES, ESPECIALLY FOR WOMEN.

AND YET EMMA DATED THAT SCUMBAG.

Emma was the shittiest friend.

i find it fucking hilarious that miles always gets looped in with eli, craig and cam. i find it especially fucking hilarious that y’all actually think looping miles, an abuse victim, in with an eli who emotionally abused clare is cute! 

all mentally ill people are the same right? we can compare those four bc they’re all the same character! haha! so funny.
