i relate to this show so hard

Yo, guess what? More reactions

Show: Shadowhunters
Episode: The Fair Folk
Season: 2b

~Jace playing piano 😍😍👏👏
~Alec being a good leader of the Institute yesssssssss (fuck those two talking shit about him being leader they don’t know)
~Alec is trying so hard and being a good leader and trying to make relations better and it’s amazing this is why I love him
~Simon really doesn’t understand how this whole seelie think works. I like Simon as much as the next person, but he pushes himself into situations he knows nothing about and makes others have to watch out for him
~Magnus was so dissapointed 😢
~The Lightwood name is great and will always bounce back
~Simon is very pretty
~You know, if I didn’t read the books and didn’t know Sebastian was an asshole who did bad things, I’d want him and Izzy together. If Sebastian was just good, I’d ship them so hard.
~I don’t give a fuck who’s on the phone, I want Valentine dead. I think Luke should do it.
~I don’t know if I like or dislike Luke’s partner yet
~The Seelie land is so beautiful I’m amazed.
~I still don’t like this whole Izzy and Raphael thing. Friends, fine. Relationship, not fine.
~I love when Raphael’s in the episode. I just love Raphael.
~“The sweeter the honey, the deadlier the trap” Yessss
~I believe Luke may be on a downward spiral and I’m concerned for him.
~I’m not sure if I trust the Seelie Queen.
~Raphael, be nice to Sebastian. Why must you act like this? I’m with Sebastian on this whole Isabelle thing. Then again, I just don’t want Izzy and Raphael together.
~I’ve been waiting for this scene. Poor Simon though, he truly loves Clary and she may love him, but not nearly as deeply as she loves Jace.
~Izzy knew?!! It’s okay though, she knows what’s right. I love how Maryse is trying to be better now. I love that Izzy can finally have that mother daughter relationship she’s always wanted yes this is amazing
~Why can’t they just let Luke kill Valentine?!?!?! He deserves it. I do not like that they have Luke in cuffs dammit.
~No Izzy don’t. Leave Raphael alone. Raphael is right their relationship was built on addiction. I don’t like their relationship, but I don’t like seeing them sad
~Clary and Izzy 💓 brotp, otp, idc which
~Lukes partner is finding things out
~Sebastian. What. The. Fuck.

The Many Faces of Yuuri Katsuki - Episode 4

In comes episode 4! This one has some of my favourite gifs in the entire show. This also marks the point which I got out of control and started making gifs out of every moment Yuuri appears on screen. As you can imagine, I had to cut down a lot. Hopefully you still enjoy the variety of the selection I ended up choosing! :)

Yuri on Ice 2017/02/11 all night event report

I’m back from the event and I’ll write a report before going to sleep, mostly because I’m sure I will not be able to decipher my scribbles when I wake up… It’s not the full talk show since you can’t record it and also I couldn’t possibly write down everything, but I tried to take note of most things, especially stuff that has never been mentioned elsewhere. In the end it became quite long so I guess I was able to get most of the stuff down…

Needless to say it’s my notes, so other people might write about parts I omitted, etc. To be honest quite a few of the things they said especially in the beginning, like what the seiyuu think about their characters, is something I’ve read so many times in interviews that I could almost answer in their place, lol… I was a bit disappointed that one of the questions that was answered is the one about Chris’ mysterious acquaintance, because actually Kubo answered that in Pash already (it’s in the Q&A part I’ll be translating later), and I hoped they would feature questions about stuff that hasn’t been explained yet. Well I guess not everybody reads interviews, but still…

Due to the format of the report you can find my comments here and there, mostly in brackets.
Under the cut because it’s long.

I forgot to mention something important: the ones participating in the talk show were Mitsurou Kubo, Toshiyuki Toyonaga (Yuuri), Junichi Suwabe (Victor), Kouki Uchiyama (Yurio).

“How are you feeling?” He asks awkwardly.

She smiles, trying hard not to show how uncomfortable she is around him. But the smile wavers too easily. “Not much.”

He blinks in confusion, noticing the tears quickly welling up in her eyes. “…Not much of what?”

“Anything.”

PopCrave: “’Restricted mode’ does not show videos with anything LGBT+ related in its title and blocks out openly gay YouTubers…”

Thomas: “I sincerely hope this is fixed soon. So upsetting. The LGBTQ+ community should not be ‘restricted’.

As someone who strives very hard to make my videos accessible for all ages, it is so bizarre & unreal to be deemed a restricted channel.

It is all I and many other creators do to simply normalize the existence and inclusion of the LGBTQ+ community, and that’s now deemed inappropriate?”

I can only hope [YouTube] will amend this. In the meantime I’m gonna keep doing what I can do to provide a platform promoting representation.

[YouTube Creators] I strive to make my channel accessible for all ages, so I hope you will indeed look into this & why I am a restricted channel.”

Dodie Clark: “[YouTube Creators] you’re blocking everything with a hint of LGBTQ+! Vids of me swearing aren’t restricted but transwomen makeup tutorials are” 

so we all know that chenle entered sm just a few months before debuting (march?? and the chewing gum mv was filmed in june???) which is rly amazing…..but what we didn’t know (for sure) was that renjun was in practically the same situation. in the kbs arabic interview renjun said that he entered sm at “almost the same time” as chenle, which seems to confirm the fan theory that renjun got in through the audition in jan. ‘16

that means renjun was, at most, training for a month or two before chenle got there, so both of these babies debuted after only mere months of training (compared to years with the other mini rookies). and even though there was (and still is) a big learning curve for chenle, at least mini-celebrity chenle had prior experience in showbusiness and training related to that.

renjun had NO formal experience in the entertainment industry and a fraction of the training that the others had, so it seriously blows me away that his singing and dancing is practically on par with the korean members??? like really, renjun is killing his lines and the choreo and he does his best in front of the cameras and just…..not only does it show how incredibly talented he is, but it also shows how much hard work he’s put in.

i just really love my son huang renjun aka hwang injun and i cannot believe how wonderful and talented and amazing he is ok

not going to be nct related!! but i dont follow pd101 at all and i’ve never watched a single episode but i just heard that samuel didn’t get in and i just???? i’ve watched this kid grow up from seventeen pre debut days and he’s improved so much and i can tell he loves being an idol so much and what the heck i saw him cry during his performance i just???? man idk what to feel im glad daehwi got in and i know how the other trainess worked so hard to get into their places now but :-( imagine how samuel’s feeling rn goodbye im emotional

Support Older Girl Groups Pt. 1: f(x)

This week on Support Older Girl Groups we are supporting f(x). If you want to know why you should participate even if this week isn’t about a group you stan, check out this post

So what this is is sort of a masterpost of ways to support the group of the week. And since it’s my favorite group and people have been taking about their status as a group a lot lately, I thought a logical place to start would be f(x).

This is far from everything f(x) has released, I just chose a few for each category so it would be easier to get the view up in a noticeable way. If you can’t put your effort into everything on this list, put your effort into 4 Walls, Free Somebody, All Mine, and On My Own. 

About the group

F(x) is an SM girl group that debuted in 2009. They were originally considered Asia’s Dance Group by SM.The members are Victoria, Amber, Luna and Krystal. Sulli also used to be part of the group. If you are looking for some different concepts, f(x) is definitely for you! They have done so many different concepts. I think you will notice their individuality as a group immediately!

Title tracks

4 Walls was their last music video and album to be released. It was released in 2015, so quite a while ago. It’s currently at 27,161,327 views, but deserves way more. Let’s get it to 30mil!

Red Light came out in 2014 and was their last music video and album with Sulli. It currently has 36,027,739 views, so it’s close to 40mil! it would be really awesome to get it to 50 mil sooner rather than later too. 

Rum Pum Pum Pum is pretty close to 50 mil, and it would be really great for them it! It currently has 46,309,778 views. 

Stations 

All Mine was the last music video f(x) has released. it was released in July of 2016 and currently has 8,411,608 views. Let’s get it to 10mil! This is a really special music video and song because it had been so long since f(x) had any activities together, and it has been a long time since, Also the music video was directed by Amber! I would be really great if this music video in particular had a big spike in views! 

Heartbeat is an amazing and sweet song by Amber and Luna. It’s honestly such a great song and Amber and Luna make such a could unit (they really should be a subunit.) But the music video is still yet to reach 1mil views! It’s currently at 901,491 views. That’s not that bad for a Station song but Heartbeat and the group deserve so much more. Let’s get it to 1mil and then much farther from there!

Borders is an Amber solo that she wrote and is very special to her. Honestly I cried to first time I heard it, it’s just too dang relatable lmao. Another thing that you might like is it is in English, and it has subtitles in both Korean and English. It currently has 5,221,617 views, which is actually pretty good for a Station song. But Amber has really been having hard times with her solo work an SM, so a spike in the views could really help. 

Solos

Free Somebody is Luna’s solo debut from May 2016. It’s such a great song that shows off both her beautiful voice and dance skills. Sadly it was not promoted well and got overshadowed by other SM comebacks, so it didn’t do nearly as well as it should. It currently has 8,154,679 views. Let’s get it to 10mil! 

On My Own was part of Amber’s Crossing series that she was making on her own Youtube Channel. Sadly, Crossing was never finished. We are not sure what happened to it, but based off of her cryptic Instagram posts (still the last two she posted if you want to go read them), it doesn’t sound like it was good. On My Own is a really important song to support for the same reason as Borders. It’s currenly at 1,040,418 views. Let’s get it to 2mil! and then maybe even 5mil!

I Don’t Want to Love You was not exactly a solo, but a collaboration between Krystal and June One Kim. It’s also not under SM and it’s not in Korean so it wasn’t that popular. But watching it will still help support f(x)! Also, it’s a really interesting and different song. The music video is actually a little spooky (also the intro kinda drags on) But still please support it becasue it’s a good song! It currently has 453,638 views. Let’s get it to 1mil!

Other Stuff to Check Out

Luna’s Alphabet is a vlog series on Youtube that Luna has been making, and it’s getting a season 3 soon! The videos usually range from around 5 to 15 mins long. And don’t worry, there are English subtitles!

Amber’s channel is where she posted her Crossing songs. There are only 4 videos but it wouldn’t hurt to subscribe anyway!

What The Pineapple was Amber’s Youtube channel for basiclly anything else she wanted to post. There are lots of funny things on it you should really check it out! Also it is primarily in English but there are Korean subtitles. Sadly it has been a long time since she last posted to it, but maybe if the views spike she will bring it back, or get to start something like Luna’s Alphabet.

Ending Notes

Please reblog this and share this as much as possible! This project will do no real good unless it is a group effort. And please watch the videos as much as possible! It would do the most good if you guys watched each one (or at least the title tracks) multiple times a day this week (and weeks to come.) I’m not expecting you to take the time to watch all of Luna’s Alphabet or What the Pineapple, but if you could watch all the music videos that would really help not only f(x), but all older girl groups! If you want people to put the effort to help out your favorite older girl groups, help out other people’s faves too! Remember, next week’s post could be your favorite group!

Also remember!

Listen to all of these songs on Spotify

Buy them and or the albums if you can

Look out for Victoria’s solo album coming out soon

follow them all on social media

Okay so since I’ve learned that this month is about pride I wanted to do something in relation to it. I know how hard it can be to show your true color toward how you feel, homosexuality have always been a controversial subject for many, some more open to it then other’s and I wanted to say that label doesn’t really matter, homosexual, bisexual, pansexual, transgender, asexual, we are all the same at the end. We want to love the person that we want without being judged for it. We want to be proud to love our other half and be able to show it.

I never expected to love a girl myself, especially as an asexual, and yet it happened that the person I feel romantically toward is a girl that I love really much. And I’m proud to love her because she’s someone fantastic.

You don’t have to be ashamed of who you are, show your color and be proud~<3

Hey so April’s coming up so I thought it’d be good to have some activities to do! I’ve seen other people do these (most notably for me @uniqueaspergirl​ had one that I did a few of last year!) and thought I’d set one up!

Under the cut is a list of the days (also listed in the picture) and descriptions of what each one is because a few words aren’t always the easiest to understand even when you wrote them.

I would like to say first though that - despite me keeping the descriptions of each day mostly positive, negative submissions and additions are absolutely accepted. Everything isn’t sunshine and daisies. Most of the things are general enough that they’ll apply to anyone, but if one doesn’t work for you feel free to treat it as a freebie!

Submit by submitting to the blog directly, tagging us ( in the @ kind of a way) or by tagging it #walkinredinstead (which I checked, it’s empty) and I’ll post and reblog as many as I can!

anonymous asked:

What's your opinion on the theory that Dipper is treated unfairly throughout GF? For example, Dipper sacrifices a lot for Mabel, while she only seems to sacrifice her sock-puppet show for him. There are also many suggestions in the show that some episodes overlap, like that from July 11-15, Sock Opera, Blendin's Game and Into the Bunker overlap. Which means D was under a LOT of pressure that week and he sacrificed a LOT for his sister. But she doesn't thank him for that. What are your thoughts?

See, maybe it’s the big sister in me, because I’ve never understood this particular complaint. The fact is, Dipper loves Mabel so much that her happiness is his own; his actions of sacrifice on her behalf are freely chosen. That’s why Bill’s behavior in “Sock Opera” is so insidious; he builds on Dipper’s momentary frustration with Mabel (why won’t she help me?!?!) by bringing up the various ways he’s helped her in the past, implying that she hasn’t done much to return the favor. He seeks to engender resentment where there was none, where Dipper was previously unwilling to give him so much as a stitch of Mabel’s puppet show; hey, she worked hard on those.

The key assertion I have to address here is that “Dipper sacrifices a lot for Mabel, while she only seems to sacrifice her sock-puppet show for him.” I imagine that viewers come to the conclusion that Dipper has the losing end because, when they compare Dipper’s problems to Mabel’s, they see Dipper’s as more serious. Dipper has a crush he can’t shake (relatable), Mabel is gaga over a pig she just saw at the fair (less relatable); Dipper is pursuing the latest lead in his search for the Author (important), Mabel is rigging up an elaborate puppet show to impress the Boy of the Week (unimportant). Yet the show is always keenly aware that Mabel’s problems, as trivial as they may seem to us, are as important to her as Dipper’s are to him. Bill highlights this when he says, “Who would sacrifice everything they’d worked for just for their dumb sibling?”, causing Mabel to respond, “Dipper would.” Dipper’s “everything” is his investigation of Gravity Falls and Mabel’s “everything” is her puppet show, but each of their projects is everything. Coming from Mabel, the sacrifice of the sock puppet show–and, by extension, of a shot at the “epic summer romance” she’s been seeking as ardently as Dipper has been seeking the answers to his questions–is a very real loss, one she’s willing to accept because Dipper would do and has done as much for her.

Nor is Mabel’s puppet show the only casualty of her greater love for her brother; the loss of her dream world is no mean thing. Mabeland might not be to everyone’s taste (I would personally have thinned out the crowd and lowered the 80s club music a notch), but it’s Mabel’s ideal universe; it’s a world where everything is as she wants it, where she’s never bored or lonely, where every boy loves her, where the high court judge is a kitten. With the threat of change weighing on her and the most important relationship of her life under siege, the prison bubble presents Mabel with an irresistible retreat. Bill, who has banked on human greed in the past to great success, believes that the trap is inescapable, that no one handed all their heart’s desires on a plate will be capable of leaving (just as Mabel is taken in by her desperation to stop time, Dipper wavers when presented with the possibility of growing up on the spot). But without Dipper, all of it is hollow; she prefers in the end to leave her safe place and to follow him into an uncertain world.

For much of the show, Dipper is the more responsible one within the context of their relationship. Regardless of actual birth order, Mabel is the baby; sometimes the baby gets in a habit of relying on charm to carry her through, taking it for granted that her older siblings will always step up to the plate on her behalf, because she’s just that cute (looking at you, youngest sibling in my own family). But if Mabel’s occasional thoughtlessness with regard to Dipper is a character flaw, it’s worth measuring against the depth of her concern for the world at large, a quality that Dipper himself, who tends to value his select group, could stand to learn from. Dipper’s only real issue with the destruction of Northwest Manor and all of its visitors is that Mabel happens to be among them; Mabel is the first to see the potential for redemption in Pacifica, even though Dipper is the one who becomes close to her.

But Mabel loves Dipper more than anyone, and she is grateful to him for everything he does for her and shows it. She apologizes to him at the end of “Sock Opera” for letting a transient enthusiasm skew her priorities: “I spent all week obsessing over a dumb guy. But the dumb guy I should have cared about was you.” After escaping the prison bubble, she makes it clear to him that he can stay with Ford if he wants to–her noblest moment in the series, because Dipper is her entire world, infinitely more to her than crushes and pet pigs and magical trees that grow stuffed animals. He stays with her, not out of guilty obligation, but because he wants to be with her–because she’s his best friend, because growing up without her would be unthinkable. He’s a fair-minded guy, not one to take the fall without good reason–when he operates against her in “The Time-Traveler’s Pig,” he does so on the assumption that her pig is an enthusiasm of the moment and that his love for Wendy is permanent. When he realizes that losing Waddles will truly hurt her, he doesn’t hesitate. “I could never break your heart, Mabel.”

But look at how she thanks him. She knows this wasn’t easy for him and she’s ready to show him how much it means to her. She tackles him in sheer strength of feeling. She lifts him right off his feet.

Treated unfairly? Dipper gets back everything he gives away with interest. Dipper’s happiness is his sister’s happiness and he always gets it because he is her happiness. Dipper is a lucky kid.

A 2AM RANT ON SUPERGIRL

Okay so I’ve just came into the Supergirl fandom and I gotta tell you something. I’ve been in multiple fandoms before and I shit you not, antis are so full of themselves. I’ve heard so many hate towards mon el and I literally went into the series thinking “oh this dude is the bad guy bcs half of the fandom hates him” and I fucking waited for the big betrayal. And then I watched and found out yall hate him for not telling the truth about his ugly past??!?!?!! And you ship a girl who lied about her come out (WHICH SHE LIED BCS SHE WAS ASHAMED OF HER PARENTS -OH WAIT THAT SOUNDS FAMILIAR), cheated on her ex GF and yelled at Alex for wanting Valentines? AND you forgave Mgann for killing innocents and regretting it?? Like?? You guys are such hypocrites. Mon El was ashamed of his past. He couldn’t stand to think of what he’s done, he didn’t go back to Daxam where he could live luxuriously as a prince. Just bcs Mgann decided to leave and lead a rebellion resistance against the white Martians and Mon El didn’t leave and KILL HIS FREAKING MOTHER, you don’t forgive him??? WOW. He literally was ready to go back and change the system bcs he thought Kara wouldn’t be safe. He legit proved himself to be noble time and time again, literally saved Kara a couple of times, even saved her by going with his toxic parents, heartbroken and just praying for something minimally good to come out of it (to change Daxam). So yall antis think you can judge people bcs what? You’ve never done any mistakes in your lives?? Of course he’s not a superhero yet, but he’s trying so hard to be bcs he now knows the right things to do. This show is really trying super hard to make the stories of superhumans relate to us by having them flawed and forgiven after they’ve tried so hard to change. I look up to the show BECAUSE of that sole reason, to know I can be forgiven for my past and I am worthy of happiness too if I work hard for it. And you guys are just gonna condemn the writers for giving out that kind of hope to people? And are you guys seriously gonna say “he’s nt even a hero he’s saved 0 ppl, kara should be with James” PLEASE how many times have Iris saved ppl other than pushing them out of the way of danger? How many times have Jane, Pepper, Lois and all the other love interests been perfect heros? They don’t have to be superheroes to be with a superhero. He loves her and he makes her so so happy. That’s what matters. And before you antis talk about how Kara doesn’t look at him like she looked at James, NEWS FLASH people don’t fluster and blush around ppl they love, that’s called having a crush. Look at westallen look at scallison. When ppl are in love, they’re comfortable enough to cry on their shoulders and eat breakfast together every morning without worrying about bacon greese and pot sticker stains, not mumble, blushing and fidget with their glasses whenever they’re around. She loves him. She literally cried several times for losing him. Yall antis should back off and pretend you want Kara to be happy for once.

Ps: don’t misunderstand my sentence on Maggie and Alex, I love them together bcs THEY MAKE EACH OTHER HAPPY AND THEIR PAST DOES NOT DEFINE THEM.

Pps: Lena is one of Kara’s closest friends, Kara isn’t gay, I love the dynamic duo and I hope they could be the next Kal El x Lex (without the insane sociopath part). Just as you won’t force Alex to be straight, don’t force a straight character to be gay. Respect all preferences.

Karamel/Supergirl Rant.

A few weeks ago I’d promised myself that I wouldn’t respond to Karamel hate on Tumblr, but I’ve had enough. I’ve seen so many posts about Mon-El being a misogynist, abusive, and toxic (like, WHAT THE HELL???), and recently I’ve seen people pop up here and there and saying that Kara being with Mon-El somehow went against the show’s “feminism”. This even goes to the point of saying that Kara shouldn’t be with Mon-El, a guy she seems to genuinely like, and instead be with Lena when she is obviously straight.

But we’ll come to that later. First, let’s look at what feminism is. Here are the couple of definitions I’ve found online:

the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes
-Merriam Webster

a range of political movements, ideologies, and social movements that share a common goal: to define, establish, and achieve political, economic, personal, and social rights for women. This includes seeking to establish equal opportunities for women in education and employment.
-
Wikipedia

any ideology that seeks total equality in rights for women and people who self-identify as women, usually through improving the status of females. Feminism is rooted in ending men’s historical power over women
-Rational Wiki

As you see, feminism isn’t about demonizing men, it is about getting men and women to the same level in terms of rights. Men and women, and all other genders, should be equal in what they are and they aren’t allowed to do/feel/say etc. That in no way means women can’t be with men, that they need to be single if they want to be strong and independent (or be with other women) or being with a man undermines their strength and makes them weak. No. Just no. And that is a really, really unhealthy message to the young girls of the generation.

So, let me make a list of misconceptions about feminism, and let’s go through why it’s wrong to think that:

Women should be single in order to be strong and independent. 
Um, no. Just no. I don’t know what you think strength means, but it certainly doesn’t mean not ever loving someone and being in a relationship. You can still be with a man and be strong and independent. One doesn’t exclude the other. This is such a wrong message to give to girls, making them feel bad for loving someone, making them think that somehow that love is wrong and makes them weak. It doesn’t. Being with a man doesn’t make you dependent on them. You choose to be dependent on them or not. As long as you’re treated equally, as long as you have the say in the relationship as much as your boyfriend/husband does, as long as you want the relationship and you’re happy, it’s more than okay, it’s great

Now how does this ties to Karamel? Well, as far as I can see, Kara is more than happy with Mon-El. I haven’t watched season 1 in a very long time, but I can assure you that I haven’t seen her laugh this much around anyone. It’s seen in her face, you can see it in the way she smiles at/around him. Now how is that a bad thing? Would you really rather Kara feel sad instead of being with Mon-El? HOW IS THAT FEMINISM??? Women have the right to do the things that make them happy, be with people that make them happy, and if Mon-El is that person for her then WHY THE HELL SHOULD SHE NOT BE WITH HIM??? She chose him, right? We saw it in the last two episodes. She wanted to be with him. If she didn’t want Mon-El, the poor boy given her a lot of chances to back down, from accepting just being partners with her to stepping back when he thought she didn’t think they would be a good match. If she truly wanted that, you can bet that Kara would back down, just like she did with Winn, just like she did with James. Are you really so blind to realize that saying that Mon-El forced the relationship on Kara actually UNDERMINES HER CHARACTER? HER CHOICES? You are all obsessed on Kara being a feminism icon, how is her doing WHAT SHE WANTS is going against that? Her actions actually teach girls to be brave about their feelings, to go for what they want. 

Women shouldn’t be with men, they’re bad (but that only extends to white and straight men and not POC/LGBT+, because somehow those things exclude you from that “men” category).
Okay, why? Why shouldn’t women be with men if they want to be with men? Isn’t that, I don’t know, taking away their right? Isn’t feminism about giving women right, allowing them to do what they want? What if I’m straight? What if I want to be with men? Am I not allowed? I just don’t understand this, because as far as I can see, not all men are bad. There are some bad men that you should stay away, that’s true, but that doesn’t extend to everyone. I have many guy friends that respect me, support me, love me for who I am. I don’t have a boyfriend or a girlfriend, but that’s merely because I don’t really like someone right now (that’s a choice as well. If I liked someone, I’d definitely want to be with them). So if Kara likes Mon-El, why shouldn’t she be with her? Just because he’s white and straight? How does that equal to bad? I’m a very pragmatic person, and I can’t really see the logic there. Racism was bad because all humans should be equal, regardless of their skin color, beliefs, etc. Saying that Mon-El is abusive and toxic just because he’s white is also racism. It’s a different kind, but it’s still a prejudice against a certain race. That’s what racism is, right? Here’s the definition:

prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior

Now that doesn’t mean that I think Mon-El is perfect. He’s not, not by far. But again, which one of us is perfect? Think about your best friends/boyfriends/girlfriends/family. Are all of them perfect? I’m gonna bet that they’re not. I love my best friend to the moon and back and do anything for her, yet that doesn’t mean I think her every action is right, that she can’t make a mistake. She does make mistakes. But I forgive her, because at the end of the day anyone can make mistakes. I might be angry at what she did, I might not approve it, but that doesn’t mean I’m just gonna leave her for it. I’ll point out that maybe she should’ve done it differently, and she’ll listen to me because she’ll know I want the best with her. Same happens when I make a mistake. I’m saying this because, as I’ve said, Mon-El isn’t perfect. He wasn’t a good person in the past, that is true. He even said it several times. That doesn’t mean he can’t change for good. M’gann had fought for White Martians, slaughtered Green Martians, yet I don’t see anyone accusing her for that, because she’s changed. Why can’t we extend the same courtesy to Mon-El? Why can’t we forgive him as well? It doesn’t make sense. Yes, he’s made mistakes. Yes, I don’t approve all of his actions. I was pretty mad at him when Kara found out he was beating people up for money. I was mad at him when he went after Mxy to fight and kill him. But I forgave him, because he was only human. Had feelings like a human, at least. He was jealous of Mxy. Can you blame him? If you were dating someone, and suddenly this beautiful, talented, and generally perfect person showed up and claimed they wanted to be with your lover, wouldn’t you be jealous? I would be. And it was pretty big of Mon-El to admit that he was jealous because he thought he couldn’t give Kara what Mxy could give her. 

All in all, yes, Mon-El made mistakes. But that doesn’t make him a bad person, just like the mistakes Kara made, the mistakes Barry made or Oliver made doesn’t make them bad people. Barry went back in time and really messed history up, yet I’m sure many people that hate on Mon-El forgave him. Oliver killed many people in the past, yet no one judges him for that. Why is Mon-El so different? 

And also, related to this point about not being with men, should I remind you that in the show Kara is straight? Is that too hard to understand? She never once showed interest to any women, not in a sexual way, except in some people’s dreams maybe? As a bisexual I know what it looks like to be attracted to women. I don’t see that in Kara. Is that a wrong thing? HELL NO! Why the hell being straight the wrong thing? Why the hell is that when people yell “WE SHOULD RESPECT LGBT+ PEOPLE” it’s right & honorable, but when us Karamel shippers point out that Kara is straight (so far) and we should respect her choices as well that we get roasted? Or branded homophobics? Do you people know what you’re talking about? I’m all for LGBT+ couples being represented in TV shows, but not by making an obviously straight character suddenly homosexual, or bisexual. No. Just no. That’s beyond forced. If you want to have a LGBT+ character on your show, then build up to it. Don’t force it down our throats. I don’t see writers taking that road with Kara. And frankly, that’s okay. Being straight is okay, it doesn’t make you a devil incarnate. It’s normal, just as being LGBT+ is normal. It’s not so different.

As a last point, I want to say to all of the people spreading hate and saying that Karamel is racist/homophobic, why are you doing that instead of supporting couples that are LGBT+ or POC? Spreading hate to straight white couples doesn’t earn you anything. Aren’t Iris&Barry dating in the Flash? Isn’t Sara bisexual? Isn’t Alex lesbian? And there’s also the thing between Nate and Amaya in LoT. Why don’t you go support those couples to show your love? Is it so hard to understand that hating on white&straight people actually undermine your cause? We should not promote LGBT+ and POC couples by hating straight and white couples, we should do that by supporting LGBT+ and POC couples. We shouldn’t promote feminism by hating men, we should promote it by supporting strong, independent women. Kara is a strong, independent woman, just like Alex, just like Maggie, just like Sara and Amaya and Caitlin and Iris and Felicity and Thea and more and more people in the DCTV universe. These are women that decide for themselves, that don’t take shit from anyone, that is open to love and relationships but don’t let men control them, that aren’t afraid to say no to the things they don’t want and pursue the things they want… We should support that.
