This is a false equivalence. Changing hair color is not the same as Blackface. With the exception of Tiny cosmetically changing her eye color, none of the other women have tried to change their race. None of the real Black women have pretended to be white for 10 years, placed themselves in white spaces as leaders, nor have they attempted to explain issues that effect white people in America. Why do ya’ll go so hard for white women to drag Black women?

When I first watched the Harry Potter movies, whenever I would ask a question or for clarification about something, someone would inevitably yell at me, “Just read the books!!” (I eventually did.)

On the other hand, whenever I criticize “Game of Thrones” or point out its many internal inconsistencies, I am told to just shut up or stop watching.

I suppose part of that has to do with the fact that more people have read the Harry Potter books than ASOIAF (understandably I guess…. no shade to HP, but it’s certainly a much easier reading experience). But even still, it amazes me the amount of vitriol aimed at ASOIAF book-readers, as if we’re being completely unreasonable. After my first binge-watch of the show, I was certainly aware of the criticisms from book-readers, but I figured that was par for the course – ALL adaptations get their share of flack, it comes with the territory. And I avoided reading the books for so long because I didn’t want to become “that guy”; I wanted to hold on to my experience with the show and not allow the books to color my perception. But then, when I began to do more research on my favorite characters (Sandor and Sansa), I realized how much I was missing…. or rather, how much the show was missing. And that’s why I decided to read the books. And lo and behold, I realized that all the disgruntled readers were actually totally justified in their outrage

What makes it even more frustrating is the total lack of respect for how much the books & characters mean to me and therefore how personally upsetting the show is. When Sansa’s Rape™ aired, there were people who were so quick to jump on me and justify why it was “okay”. They were TELLING ME THAT I SHOULD BE OKAY WITH ONE OF MY FAVORITE CHARACTERS GETTING RAPED. Or that I should just “accept” it, cuz what are ya gonna do. Like, how insensitive is that?? Whether or not you actually feel that way is besides the point – can you at least show a little courtesy in not immediately trying to stomp all over my legitimate feelings about this just because YOU don’t think it’s a big deal?? How is it that Star Wars fans are allowed to be mad over the fact that George Lucas changed his own canon to make Han not shoot first, but I’m not allowed to be mad that a couple of greedy producers raped one of my favorite literary characters on their TV show adaptation for no logical reason? (Incidentally, the arguments for both controversies do not stem from a change in events but from a change in the central character’s core values and development!!)

Sorry for the rant, but I’m just so sick and tired of being treated like I’m overreacting and that I should just shut up and accept the show for what it is, when even it’s OWN INTERNAL LOGIC doesn’t exist!!! I mean, if you are okay with that, if your own standards and expectations do not extend beyond “ZOMG DRAGONS!!” or “HOLY SHIT I CAN’T BELIEVE THAT JUST HAPPENED!!”, and if you truly believe that what you witnessed in Season 5 is not only acceptable but even SUPERIOR to the books… well, then, congrats, you are the exact person that D&D are writing for now. Who needs logic and consistency anyway, right?

Hm. Did an intern fuck up? Is Zayn going to be back for Vancouver? Is this meant to whip the fanbase into a by now predictable frenzy and incite a Twitter trend that will have Zayn’s possible return fresh in people’s minds?

If that is the case, will we receive a new demo out of it, or perhaps a surprise NB single featuring Zayn?

Will new team use the opportunity to drag Modest in the media, a la April 10? None of the above? All of the above? Stay tuned, folks.

what is this fuckery, NBC?

So it looks like the NBC app has locked the most recent episode of Hannibal, and you have to ‘Sign in with your TV provider.’

1. NBC, you are a network, not cable.
2. Fuck You
4. seriously, fuck you.

This is how i re-watch episodes at work, and i am perfectly happy to watch the commercials in exchange for this being a free service. Why the living fuck do i need to have a paid service which YOUR CHANNEL IS NOT A PART OF in order to watch a previously aired episode?

This shit right here is why people pirate shows. The CW app has never pulled this crap, and that channel is the weird paste-eating kid of the non-cable networks. You’ve already cancelled Hannibal, NBC, at least let me watch it legally while it’s still alive.

… in the wee quiet hours of the TwitterForest we find an example of the common variety pallens penis caput capitis, of the genus indignus fragile masculum. When feeling bereft in its mentions it seeks out denizens of worthier merit (invariably of the swen family) to insult, hoping for attention in lieu of talent; then blames its ego on its pregnant mate:

[note: both swen and non-swen fandom calling him out]

.25 miligrams

every morning
and every night
my head spins around
looking for the bearings
in thought

a go,

and I’ve got birds
behind my eyelids,
they flutter
and flutter
and I tell them
to go to sleep

I pick the lint
out of my pockets,
put it in their beaks,
and they take it
to make a nest

they stretch their wings
and I feel all wrong,
so I take
the small tiger
and let her run loose
until I feel soft
and pliable
under her claws

she scratches
so well
between the ears

now the birds are dead,
the tiger is full,
and I am empty
and feel nothing.
