Hey! I know you just answered SO many asks, but I have a question. What do you consider fetishizing? Bc, I never, ever want to do that but sometimes I feel like I am? But I don't think I fully understand what it actually means so I hope I'm not? Like, there's a good number of people I want to suffocate me with their thighs. (Namely, brendon urie, harry styles, bebe rexha) is that sexualizing? Fetishizing? Idk, I just wanna be respectful of everyone. I hope this doesn't sound dumb :/
It doesn’t sound dumb, this stuff is hard to understand the nuance of sometimes. I think that entertaining sexual fantasies about someone isn’t necessarily fetishizing…what makes it fetishizing is when you REDUCE them SOLELY to what you want them to do to you/what you want to do to them. When you strip them of their other good qualities/humanity/etc. Like, I’ll make the occasional comment about Bebe, but I also respect her as a musician, read her interviews, purchase her music, etc. I see her as much more than a sexual fantasy.
Another layer of fetishizing that’s usually relevant when I mention it casually on this blog, is when people are attracted to or reduce people to a group they belong to, when the person doing this does NOT belong to that group (or even worse, when their relation to that group is that of the oppressor). For example, the way white men fetishize asian women, or the way some white women fetishize black men, etc. Then, it’s not just reducing someone to a sexual fantasy, it’s reducing them to a single element of their identity FOR a sexual fantasy. Furthermore, reducing people to their identify usually upholds harmful stereotypes associated with that group, (i.e., asian women are subservient and kinky and black men are hung).
when I use the word, I usually am referring to straight people in this fandom thinking about H and L in a fetishistic way: reducing them to their relationship, viewing certain interactions of theirs to something solely sexual, only managing interest in supporting them or their queerness if they’re still together, imposing heterosexual power dynamics onto their relationship, using subjects like internalized homophobia or homophobic bullying as a plot device to make their OTP hook up…viewing H and L as an OTP at all in the first place.
I hope that makes sense!
Also, check out thesepages, I think they describe things a little better than I can. Also, this wikipedia page for racial fetishization has really good sources at the bottom.
Hey, just looking for a bit of advice on where to find some cool discord chats to join and make some friends. I have social anxiety so I find it hard to make friends anyway, but I really want to and I feel like that would be a good way to go about it. Any advice would be a massive help, thank you.
hi angel! im not currently in any public discord chats cause i find big ones p overwhelming but i know my friend @xenoplvtinum has one and @wyattssims might still have one!! idk if that helps at all hun i hope u have a great day!
Congratulations! I swear you gain followers so quickly lol I'm proud of you 💕 for the aesthetic thing can I get a Vampire!Triplets AU? Love you bb ^^
Thank you boo boo! Idk about quickly, haha but it’s definitely more than I ever thought I’d get. And of course you can have that aesthetic! Hopefully you like it! It was a little hard to pic the right aesthetic photos for it but I think this one turned out fairly good
In my opinion, bnha is the best anime to have been created in recent years. It is so ridiculously good I have a hard time seeing a large amount of people hating on it
To me It’s pretty good. I don’t think it’s like, OMGTHEBESTEVER or anything (I mean there’s still room for improvement) but It’s really enjoyable and fun. It’s not going to be everyone’s cup of tea and that’s fine. But Idk I’ve been seeing a lot of hate recently. And people tell me they don’t understand my Froppy love because she’s not a main character and it’s so hard to explain like, 1 reason I love her is because she’s NOT a main character lol
28.8.17 10:06 PM // some photos from a bullet journal shoot I did a couple days ago. Clockwise from top left:
1. timetable spread inspired by Amanda Rach Lee, + test tracker which helps me track my progress on studying and doing tests.
2. expenses log + bullet journal spread for last week, inspired by @j-christabel
3. essentials for bullet journalling last week. not a lot, but enough. p.s. that’s actually a warm yellow mildliner (idk looks orange??)
hope y'all have a great week! good luck for the first day of school (if any of you haven’t started yet). september printables and wallpapers 90% ready, so look out for them 🌼
also this whole “trust bts” argument shouldn’t be pushing people to keep our mouths shut about how fucking dumb, racist and misogynistic the chainsmokers are… like, im trusting bts that the song’s gonna be good but fans can talk about how much they hate the chainsmokers all they want
