Should I reblog posts with debunks of the silly attacks that arise whenever a pic or video of Freddie appears? I always wrestle with that bc in my gut I don’t want to give airtime to that shit (though I’m glad someone is doing it) and would rather be like “look at the cute bab” but is it more helpful to expose the desperate, hateful, bitter commentary, addressed head-on for what it is?
How was the Series of Unfortunate Events movie literally the best thing ever and the worst thing ever at the same time
Like how could they nail the casting, atmosphere, music, narration and basically everything aesthetic so perfectly while completely disregarding the actual story that they were adapting beyond the point where it can even be enjoyable
“I personally believe girls and boys are not limited to one specific look. Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. We are all different. If we all sang the same melody how can there be harmony? Don’t judge someone just because they’re different. Hopefully, we can all grow to respect each other’s differences.”

This is the last I’m going to say about this EL/ADC/FTWD mess because we’re all grown and I’m not here to scold people, but before you go claiming “it’s not a big deal” like the anon I just got (and who I won’t even humor with a response) think about how this can affect everything else we’re aiming to accomplish. We can’t expect the world to take us seriously with the movement we’re attempting to start and not label us as “crazy shippers” when you’re trying to shove a fictional character a couple thousand people created down a network’s throat. I’ve seen the petitions, I’ve seen people tagging the network begging for Elyza/Alicia to be a thing, I’ve seen people going to Kirkman directly and be pushy about it. How do you expect the industry to separate the two groups in their minds? It’s so easy to get them muddled.
We could have a real effect in the way media portrays, writes, and treats LGBT characters and you’re willing to jeopardize that for what? Shits and giggles? Please don’t. We have traction. We have people watching very closely. Stop giving them reasons to discount us. Stop giving everyone who wants us to fail an excuse to label us as problematic. It takes time to build a reputation and seconds to destroy it. Don’t ruin what we’re trying to do for something so childish. That’s all I’m asking.
