#DisneyGiveUpGMW

OK everybody. We’re seeing increasingly positive response from Netflix and Hulu but large parts of us seem to be asleep on the other, equally as critical part of this campaign:

CONVINCING DISNEY CHANNEL TO GIVE UP THE RIGHTS TO GIRL MEETS WORLD SO NETFLIX (OR HULU) HAS ACCESS TO IT.

On my phone call with a Netflix phone answerer earlier today she said the main problem with Netflix getting GMW is the fact that Disney owns it. So let’s keep using the full power of the fandom but start gearing a portion of it towards wresting this beautiful show away from the Disney douchebags.

Here’s how we’re going to hit them on all fronts:

Tweet @DisneyChannel, @DisneyChannelPR, and @Nbalgemino using the hashtag #DisneyGiveUpGMW. Nicole Balgemino is the Disney Channel publicist in charge of GMW, so if we could get her into this I think that would help.

On Instagram tag @DisneyChannel and @DisneyChannelPR with the hashtag #DisneyGiveUpGMW, and comment #DisneyGiveUpGMW in the comments section of their posts.

I don’t think Disney Channel has an official email, but you can email Nicole Balgemino at nicole.a.balgemino@disney.com.

Tell her why GMW is so important to you, and how much it would mean if they would let it continue on another network, say you’ll keep watching their shows live if they let it go. But above all, make sure you’re polite and respectful.

If you feel like it you can write them a letter, address it to

500 S Buena Vista St
Burbank, CA 91505

BUT, some tumblr bloggers may or may not be trying to set up a postcard thing where a whole bunch of people send postcards within 1-3 days, so bear that in mind if you take this route.

You can call Disney Channel at 1 (818) 460-7477, asking them to please give up the rights to GMW.

Finally - I saved easiest for last - you can sign this petition: https://www.change.org/p/the-walt-disney-company-petition-for-disney-channel-to-release-girl-meets-world-to-another-network asking Disney to give up the rights to GMW. It has way less signatures than the other petition, but it’s just as important. Sign it once, twice, hell sign it 20 times just spread it around.

We’re doing so great with Netflix and Hulu everybody, but we seem to be geared more towards Netflix and I cannot stress this enough: NETFLIX CAN’T BUY IF DISNEY CHANNEL WON’T SELL.

This all being said, we are all doing SO GREAT. I don’t know if you guys saw the phone call that’s been going around, but our messaging has reached Netflix’s internal department. Have hope you guys. We are a powerful, passionate fandom and what with MJ and Co’s recent tweet… 

Keep going you guys!!!

Contact Netflix.

Contact Hulu.

Contact Disney Channel.

And do. not. give. up.

Hey GMW fam. So I saw a response to an ask by the lovely @bmwwritinggmw and I wanted to chime in real quickly. Here’s the ask in question:(x)

Anyways, here’s what Kat had to say about GMW potentially getting renewed:

“The thing is though, there are still 3 more episodes in Season 3. And all of us fans are out here hooting and hollering about renewing the show, but if we don’t bring in those live viewing numbers, Disney isn’t going to care what we post on social media. The proof is in the pudding. So it is SO ESSENTIAL that these last three shows get HIGH ratings and we follow through with our claims as a fanbase. So WATCH WATCH WATCH live. Even if you see it early, watch when it AIRS LIVE. Even if you buy the episode on Itunes, WATCH WHEN IT AIRS LIVE. THATS WHEN THE COMMERCIALS ARE PLAYED, THATS WHEN THE BIG MONEY COMES IN”

Look. I know we’ve hustled over the past few weeks. We’ve been on Twitter. We’ve been on Instagram. We’ve been emailing, Facebooking, whatever. But Kat is right. If we don’t pull up and watch during the time the show actually airs, Disney will be less likely to take us seriously. And if we don’t hear from them this year, it’s more than likely that they’re waiting to see how the rest of the episodes pan out in terms of viewers and all that. 

I know not all of you have access to the show when it airs live. But to those of you who do, please watch when it airs live! And if you don’t want to watch, you can just leave the TV on during the half hour and go do something else! 

We can’t talk all this shit about how we’re going to watch the show and how much it means to us and then NOT watch it. Disney would think we’re full of it and it would severely lessen the chances of a fourth season! 

Either we gotta put up or shut up. The last two episodes averaged only 1.2 million viewers. We really gotta get viewer count up if we’re going to ever have a chance of really convincing Disney this show means something to us. 

Anyways, that’s about it for my rant. For those who can, please, please, please watch the show when it airs in January. I believe the episode order looks like this:

January 6 - World Meets Girl

January 13 - Girl Meets Sweet Sixteen

January 20 - Girl Meets Goodbye

Please watch if you can!

- A.I. 

OK SO IM HEADING OVER TO @HULU ON TWITTER WHERE IM TWEETING @HULU AND #HULUSAVEGMW REPEATEDLY FOR THE NEXT HALF HOUR OR SO.

Anyone feel like joining??? Pleeeeeeease???

okay here is a thing that needs to be addressed.

also note that i am white so if i’m speaking over any poc, please let me know.

white shaty fans need to stop telling black shawngela fans to “get over” shawngela not being endgame. these same sh*ty stans are the ones always claiming to be feminists for stanning a single mother but in reality, they’re white feminists and here’s why: shawngela was groundbreaking for so many people. i’ve been in the bmw fandom since 2012 and the amount of black girls i’ve seen talking about how important both angela and shawngela was to them is insane. michael jacobs consistently kisses his own ass about having an interracial couple in the 90s and you know what he did? replaced a black woman with a white woman after teasing angela’s return.

also so many people continue to talk shit about trina and claim that she’s being extra with her shit talking of gmw but she has every right to be!!!! trina spoke so highly of bmw. she always said how honored she was to be apart of one of the first interracial relationships. and they paid her DUST. she is the only one in gmw to get that treatment and according to what she says, she wasn’t even invited to the big reunion episode thing, probably because michael jacobs is annoyed that she’s standing up for herself. also can people stop saying that rider likes sh*ty because……….why would he…….he continuously says shawn is treated like trash. he is close friends with trina still (trina also only tweets nice things about rider and says they love each other). he is married to a woc and is an open intersectional feminist. in what world what rider be supportive of a ship that pushes a black woman aside? never.

so shut the fuck up saying that trina and shawngela fans need to get over themselves. seeing a white boy they might’ve had a crush on be in love with a black girl was probably SO important for young black girls. sh*ty benefits no one except white women and a white man. a white man who i refuse to refer to as shawn hunter bc that’s not shawn hunter so we’ll say rider is playing a new character named shane hummus.

shawngela was important and deserved better. you are not a feminist if you’re sitting up here telling people to support a mayo ship.
