Fun fact of the day: truscum (whether they’re cis or trans) fucking HAAAAAAAATE aces
Bc they class aces and nb people together as “special snowflakes who are just making up unnecessarily specific terms for things that don’t exist”
And all the ableist, exorsexist bullshit that comes along with that idea.
This might be why so fucking many TERFs also hate aces: pretty much all TERFs are also truscum, as far as I can tell.
(The entirety of truscum rhetoric goes perfectly with transmisogyny and general cissexism, and people who use “special snowflake” rhetoric are supporting TERFs whether they mean to, or want to, or not.)
this message brought to you by me digging through dozens of TERF ace discourse blogs and seeing some fucking patterns
ugh this is too stressful- why do they have to do these fucking early screening things- I haaaaaaaate to be spoiled, but it also stresses me out so much that the information is potentially available to me and I could try and find it- even though I don’t want to know- or is it better to know early??? in case it isn’t what we think and hope?? I DON’T KNOW THIS IS ALL JUST WAY TOO STRESSFUL
Headcanon: after they retire from skating, Yuuri becomes a big Internet Person. Not a social media addict like his husband or Phichit, no. Instead, he loves to lurk on random forums and read advice columns. Eventually he stops just lurking and starts commenting a lot on r/relationships, and what do you know, two decades of not being in a relationship and only watching other people means that Yuuri’s kinda good at relationship advice (for other people).
Of course, one day Yuuri leaves r/relationships up on his laptop and Victor finds it. And because he’s Victor Katsuki-Nikiforov, *he* starts posting on r/relationships “looking for advice”, but everyone haaaaaaaates his posts because they’re all hardly-subtle humblebrags about how wonderful and perfect his husband is. He leaves out enough details that Yuuri doesn’t realize at first, but eventually the usernames Victor picks that are all skating terms gives him away. Yuuri is both exasperated and very, very much in love.
(you don't have to answer this if you don't want to) so what are your thoughts on the latest scooby doo show, BCSD? Like, I have very different feelings about it depending on what aspect I focus on (the clue finding, the actual mysteries, the jokes, the characterizations, the animation, the fourth wall poking) which has led to conflicted feelings on that series overall.
Conflicted is a good way of describing my own experience with it. I guess the first thing would be the elephant in the room. The Art style. I haaaaaaaated the knock-off Family Guy vibe, but you know what? I think the artists did too. Little things like putting more details into other characters and objects, not to mention some of the backgrounds were gorgeous. I learned to deal with it, but I never really got past it. I will say I love the bits when Velma’s explaining things and it goes like blueprints or some other method of conveyance. i think that’s my favorite thing in the series.
Characterizations.were another mixed bag. Fred was interesting to see as the straight man when he’s been delving into cloud-cukoolanderdom for decades. And I liked that they were unafraid to take Daphne in a completely new direction. “Pretty Rich girl’ was there, but was easily forgotten except when brought up under specific circumstances. Flip side, Shaggy and Scooby talking about sacrificing Fred to the ghost to save their own skins in Scream Donna pissed me off no end. And that came after Grand Scam, which had some beautiful characterization for Shaggy. Plus Fred’s behavior in the Christmas episode. Daphne, a character who for most of the series was ‘refuge in audacity’ is at her most serious because she’s hurting. She’s had the severe misfortune of being born on December 25 and just once just once wants to celebrate her birthday, and Fred just ignores that, hurts her worse, because he wants to solve a Christmas Mystery?!
I will give points for skipping any relationship drama between the two. Neither in interested in the other.
I liked the humor far more than I thought I would. I went in expecting to hate it, but I found a lot of bits hilarious. I cackled like a madman during the vending machine bit. Sadly there’s another Family Guy inspired failing - stretching a joke far too long in the hopes that it will become funny again. It doesn’t. It never does. And would whoever is the big ‘Family Guy’ fan on the executive producers please just write your fanfic and keep it away from my Scooby Doo. Thanks.
I assume Kylo was avoiding the confrontation with Han. Kylo admits it in his ‘Being Torn Apart’ speech. So you know what’s also implied ? That Snoke would force the confrontation. In the deleted scenes the storm troopers storm Maz’s castle and try to arrest Han to take him into custody. So if Kylo hadn’t have happened upon Han by chance, and instead Han had been captured at Takodona; then we could have potentially had an even darker scene take place.
I don’t even want to think about what else Snoke has demanded of Kylo. Like, noooooo thank you.
can we have more Dan and Valerie interaction stuff because holy shit I do not see enough of that in this phandom and I WANT IT
like Dan and Valerie getting into slappy hands fights over the last packet of chips, Dan and Valerie being roommates who haaaaaaaate each other, Dan and Valerie going to the gym and heckling each other into working out harder, arm wrestling that always ends up breaking the table because they get too into it
Danielle being the peacekeeper between sort-of-brother/father and her girlfriend even though she knows Dan is a piece of shit but she just ignores him because he’s an idiot who’s just trying to get a rise out of people for shits and giggles
Valerie is bad at ignoring things
Dan harassing Valerie the most because she ALWAYS bites and it’s FUN, Dan getting told off by Danielle for harassing her girlfriend, Danielle getting her own back because she knows what pisses Dan off and she gets Valerie to join in because REVENGE IS VAL’S MODUS OPERANDI
just plEASE GIVE ME ALL OF THE DAN AND VALERIE BULLSHIT WITH A SIDE OF DANIELLE BECuse it is CONSUMING MY SOuL
Oh, there's this character in this show that I really don't like. She's really horrible for various amounts of reasons in relation to other characters and with certain plot points in the story. But I won't post too much about it because it's just my opinion and I know there's quite a few people who actually like her.
//Takes another character that I like// THIS B**** WE WILL POST EXTENSIVELY ABOUT HOW MUCH SHE SUCKS WITH THOUGHTLESS CLAIMS AND IGNORE VERY IMPORTANT PLOT POINTS LIKE THEY DON'T EXIST. WE'LL IGNORE HER CHARACTER DEPTH AND JUST HAAAAAAAATE AND TAG IT. WHO CARES IF OTHER PEOPLE LIKE HER? WE WILL SHOOT THEM DOWN.
