manchild*

why have manchild!tony trope,,,,,, when you could give me an ‘in the zone’ tony striding through his home with a phone nestled between his shoulder and ear to hold negotiations with the un about the accords while simultaneously looking through some of the paperwork he needs to sign for stark industries, and still making sure hes got enough time to help kamala and peter and harley with their homework and any other issues they might be having (and doing good at all of it too, not just the un and business stuff but also looking after his kids because fuck what the ex-vengers might think and fuck what the media will say, tony would die for them and will always do everything he can to look after them and make sure theyre happy while with him because he’ll never allow himself to make the same mistakes howard did)

instead of manchild!tony you should totally give me competent, team parent, BAMF!tony stark instead

Why do you like Markiplier? He's nothing but a worthless idiot who uses screaming, crocodile tears and bad humor to attract a fanbase of tiny little prepubescent brats. Well, you're pretty much a manchild for liking Mark, I suppose.

It took me a while to come up with an answer for this. Not because it’s hard finding the reasons why I enjoy Mark and his videos, but because I wasn’t sure if I should give the question my attention or not. But, dear Anonymous, I will take your question seriously, and answer it to the best of my ability.

I would like to say I understand where you’re coming from. I used to think the same thing. (Just a less mean version) Three years ago, Markiplier was nothing to me but a name I only knew because my brother watched his videos.

I’m not going to give you my entire life story, but I will mention that my family has suffered the loss of many family members all in a suffocatingly short period of time. My parents started fighting more often, my brother and I couldn’t stand the sight of each other during this time.

I won’t say I didn’t have anybody, because I did. Days were easier because I was with friends. However, when the school day was over and I went home alone, it became harder and harder to cope with the stress and the grief.

Then one day, I was messaging someone on Twitter, and they said that Markiplier had inspired them to start a YouTube channel. I couldn’t believe what I was reading. Markiplier - some dumb goof playing video games on the Internet for a living - inspired someone?! As an outsider looking in, I couldn’t see past the numbers (views and subs).

It wasn’t until I became interested in horror games I started watching his videos. I thought I’d give him a chance.

During the play through, I found myself laughing harder and smiling wider than I had in the past years. I dug deeper through the channel, binging on everything from goofy challenges to heartfelt fan games.

Not long after, I started this blog. I immediately felt a sense of family, of community, of belonging. For once, I wasn’t sad. For once, I smiled. For this first time, I actually felt good. I was happy.

Mark is relatable. Mark is funny. Mark is not afraid to show his emotions, which is a beacon of light for all the young boys who are being taught they aren’t allowed to cry. He brings hope and smiles and happiness.

This community became my family, my home, in a short amount of time. I’m sorry that you can’t see past his success. I’m sorry you’re not willing to dig deeper to find what Mark truly is and what his community of fans represent.

it just blows bc i look to junkrat as something where i can be like, “look, he’s paranoid and he has delusions and he stims and he has echolalia, all of these things are reasonable interpretations of whats in canon, he can be psychotic and have adhd and like, function and have people who care about him” which is really important to me

so to see people look at him and just be like…….”oh, he’s a manchild and is too crazy to make decisions for himself” it just…hurts a lot, and im honestly gonna need people to think before they speak when it comes to things like this

I’m done. Talk about how the film is a pile of shit in a proper context. But if you want to make a video about how everyone who loves it is a lying SJW idiot or everyone who hates it is a MRA manchild baby then quite frankly you can fuck off to somewhere else.
