What I love tho is that when Deadpool came out, I didn’t hear a single concern about Deadpool reigniting scene culture or reigniting the bad boyz r kewl culture. I didn’t see any concerns about people dressing up as Deadpool more and more. When we know Deadpool cosplayers are often crass, and lewd, and go up to other cosplayers “consenting females” so they can be groped for a photo.
Even tho Deadpool, as I said before, in a male version of Harley Quinn’s jester suit, is also on every shelf in every corner of the Hot Topics stores all across the country. Hot Topics, a store that predominantly young girls (wow no coincidence there) shop at. I personally am not big on scene culture but I can see in the past as a younger teen girl how many of their things would have interested me.
I went to Hot Topic and saw all sorts of Disney merch especially Frozen, Deadpool merch (even before the movie), MARVEL merch, literally so much Loki everywhere, Doctor Who/Sherlock/Supernatural (even a Mishapocalypse t) merch, some DC/TDK trilogy merch, some bands, and other various things including memes like the doge meme.
Hot Topics isn’t a scene store. It’s a freaking fandom store. I’ve never seen so many “We a Have a Hulk” and “Loki uwu” shirts in one place in my life. Heck, there were more LOKI shirts than there were Avengers shirts!
Shopping at Hot Topics is like logging onto tumblr. Fandoms everywhere. I was actually embarrassed to be able to recognize almost everything in Hot Topic I’ve already seen on tumblr.
So I’m not understanding the whole “Suicide Squad will bring back scene culture Hot Topic style” guess what binches, when y'all log onto tumblr to brood about how no one understands you and spend your time with others who no one understands, crying over fictional characters, y'all are emo. Y'all are scene culture. Y'all brought back scene culture with your woobification and Avengers/Sherlock/Doctor Who/Supernatural fangirling.
Anyways, the point is, when Deadpool came out, y'all were all perfectly fine. Y'all even wrote endless metas to prove how deep Deadpool goes beyond his lewd disgusting jokes about his genitalia and even past the lolz so randum jokes/scenes that saturated the movie. Even the awful advertising with the emo cartoon drawings of Deadpool and the poop emojis that specifically were meant to appeal to a particular age group (*cough*) y'all lauded and lapped it up like ice cream on a hot summer day. Y'all even contrived multiple reasons why Deadpool is great representation ( l o l with that predominantly white cast) and a super progressive movie (um) I mean where does it end???
Everyone continued to cosplay it. Females continue to get groped “in the name of in-character cosplay”. Guys got to go order their Deadpool t-shirts and their Deadpool mugs and girls got to order their Deadpool merch and everyone was happy. No one was harassed or made fun of. There wasn’t a single dent in the earth.
- How dare Suicide Squad, happens to be 55% poc with 4 main female characters, two of of which are non-white be a movie? I’ve seen fans literally rally to fund Deadpool’s movie production. But h-how dare a Suicide Squad movie exist???¿¿¿
How dare the movie potentially encourage more girls to dress like Harley Quinn? Notice how no one complained that “more dudes!” (often smelly rude and perverted dudes in my experience) would dress like Deadpool but it’s an issue that more girls will dress like Harley Quinn. Hmm 👀🤔
Notice how Suicide Squad is being branded an edgy Hot Topic movie (by MCU stans) but none of your beloved MCU movies or even Deadpool isn’t. I can find Deadpool on every single merchandise in Hot Topics- from mugs to shoelaces to erasers to freaking fragrance bottles. There’s more Loki shirts than there are Black Widow or pretty much any other character in Hot Topic.
So don’t try tell to me :-) 🔪🔪 that this :-) 🔪 isn’t bias :-) 🔪🔪🔪 from multiple aspects :-))) 🔪 disguised as something else 🔫
“Yes I know the DC movie is breaking Hollywood norm and giving minorities a chance to succeed like we’ve been asking from our own Marvel movies but it looks too edgy so no one should watch this movie!”
“No it’s not that I prefer my white favs with the one background poc who is the white fav’s prop like we get in Marvel movies. It’s just that diversity doesn’t matter in the DC movie!”
(Let’s see how long MCU stans ride the “it doesn’t matter if it has pocs, pocs don’t make a good movie” train until Spiderman Homecoming comes out 👀🕵🏾✍🏾💁🏽)
You guys are perfectly fine overlooking your whitewashed jews turned neo-naz*s and your yellow face movies and your “all blacks people look the same” CEO and your “stole the majority of my black costar’s paycheck” RDJ and your “child rape isn’t real” Scarlett Johansson, and “which female character can I bang first” Seb Stan and your “female characters are sexy lamps” movies and your various sputtering problematic aspects of the MCU, and still give them money and the time of day.
Then you should have no problem overlooking Jared Leto (who most likely will be woobified anyways) and stop bending over backwards for the “boycotting” of Suicide Squad and telling everyone that the pocs do not matter or mean anything because it’s “too Hot Topic-y”.
This post isn’t about or excusing Jared Leto’s disturbing gross antics he used to get into character. This isn’t about one line that Harley Quinn said in a 2hr+ movie that none of y'all have even seen yet. But I’m sure all of you will still persist and argue that “it’s too edgy” and “they completely screwed up Harley Quinn” as your excuse anyways won’t ya. I can foresee all the reblogs saying “but it’s too edgy 😩!” “All the GIRLS will wanna dress like Harley Quinn while it’s fine that all the GUYS wanted to be Deadpool” anyways. Prove me wrong for once. Just once.
Harley iconic colors have always been red and black, even with the design change over the time for her (while staying true to the clown theme) it have never been changed. The only reason it was change in the movie is to make her stand out more and that it, which was a stupid decision on their part.
Yeah. The fact of the matter that it doesn’t even resemble Harley, but it doesn’t even resemble a clown, much less a harlequin. And a girl in a jester suit and clown makeup stands out on her own. So even that reason falls flat.
Like I keep saying, every argument for the color change I’ve seen so far is self-defeating or contradicted by other factors.
