In light of Amy Schumer still being considered a thing against all conventional wisdom, I've decided to go around and remind people of a far more charismatic comedian: Rita Rudner. Even for those that don't find her material funny, she just comes off as too nice to actually hate, so she at least earns some sympathy laughter.
Ah! I love Rita Rudner! She was one of the comediennes that inspired me growing up. I used to watch her on Comedy Central, back when the network wasn’t total garbage (I miss those days). It almost seems these days that people forget that female stand-ups have been around for decades, and that there are many established comediennes in the business that are being overlooked in favor of no-talent hacks like Schumer.
There are a lot of funny ladies out there that have never needed to be forcefully gross for attention, nor needed to try to appeal to extremists in a pretend gender war. They got by on actual talent, and never needed anyone to fluff them up with ridiculous articles about the first time they wore red lipstick.
Amy Schumer is a slimy tick bloated on fake, pumped-up media hype that’s being forced on the public as some sort of gift to both comedy and female representation.
some of the other people I've seen not happy with the new development are the older Katie fans who are hate supergirl and the supercorp fandom. but they weren't being hateful towards Katie just sad I guess. I'm kind of torn in between because I've loved Katie since Merlin and I'm part of the new fandom too and I must admit both sides have very valid points, some new fans are just awful but maybe we should just ignore them and move on? let's just celebrate within ourselves and be happy! :)
Yeah, I’ve seen that too. Again, I understand their points but I also think is not fair to blame an entire fandom for just a little group of people. There’s always going to be all kinds of people in all fandoms, especially when they get bigger.
And Katie’s fandom has grown a lot, and I’m happy for that. It would be a little selfish not to. I think she was really
underappreciated before, not many people knew her work or her as the sweet and kind person she is.
And that was a little sad because she’s amazing and she deserves all the love in the world, so I’m extremely happy every time I see someone new in her fandom, someone who’s watching the things she’s been on and appreciating all that she’s done and it makes me happy that she’s the reason they’re happy too!
She has a lot of new fans that are amazing, that are meeting her and telling her how much we love her, and they’re filling her tag with love, and pictures, and drawings, and gifs and videos and they’re bringing back her old characters and loving them too. I think we should appreciate that. Besides, I’m sure being in Supergirl is a job Katie loves, so we should be happy for her no matter what.
Some new fans might be awful, some old fans might be too. We can’t generalize and I know we shouldn’t excuse their actions but fighting isn’t the solution either, especially because a lot of these people are really young, so they’re still learning I guess? We can point out if something is wrong but bullying them or telling them that they don’t deserve to be her fans is not the solution, at least I don’t think so.
So, you’re right! The best solution is to just ignore them and be happy that Katie has a job that she loves portraying an amazing character and the she has hundreds of new fans that love her and appreciate her and that at the same time she’s inspiring them too.
Just finished the series and I love Karamel! It's a bit disconcerting the amount of hate they get on here though (tho I tend to ship unpopular ships so I'm use to it lol). I never went on the tag while watching the show and when I caught up I was so confused hearing 'Karamel is abusive, Mon el is abusive yadyadyad' because I never got that watching it. Amazing people will distort reality just for their agendas lol. Anyways is this Karamel hate on here only because it's annoying?
Hey there, shipmate!! Welcome aboard.
Yes, I’m amazed by how horrible some people in the supergirl fandom can be. The show is about love and including everyone no matter how they are or where they are from, but these people doesn’t seem to get that message, they prefer to spread hate, harass people who doesn’t ship the same ship as them… It’s pretty disgusting. Let me give you an advice, now that you’re part of the karamel fam: don’t talk to the antis, just ignore them and block them. Enjoy the show and the ship, don’t let them ruin it for you. Focus on the positive stuff.
On the “abuse” argument, I find it incredibly disrespectful that some people take this argument lightly. Abuse is a very serious thing and it is not something to joke about or accuse someone of just because you don’t like that ship. Since I’ve been in the karamel fandom I’ve been called racist, homophobic, supportive of an abusive person/relationship (I WOULD NEVER SUPPORT ABUSE, NEVER), anti-feminist… and worst of all, these arguments are being used in most fandoms today. It’s horrible and I do not want to be a part of it. If they don’t ship Karamel, perfect, but don’t say those things about us when you don’t know us. That is bullying and bullying people is always wrong.
Anyway, hope you have a nice experience in the fandom and welcome again!.
I just wanted to say that I love your writing. Your fics pretty much landed me the Ketchcan for life (I was already sorta, kinda there, and then Never Say Never just gave me incentive to bury myself deeper, haha) But, more importantly, stick with this. Some days you’ll doubt yourself (the hate and negativity from some people is UNREAL), but if you have a passion for what you write, nothing can stop you. And anon hate is the most cowardly thing I’ve seen on here. Trust me, you are amazing. Keep writing, keep being brave, and take no one’s crap. Much love. Xo
Thank you so much !! This means a lot to me!!! I am trying to keep my chin up and not get dragged down by the anons !
Why are some people being so rude today with the "how does it feel" type bullshit over SJM books. You've clearly said plenty of times that you may love the books but they have problems to them.
Dude. Idk. You can’t argue with crazy.
It’s probably the same person honestly. Some people just feel good sending anon hate to others. They’re the same kind of people that call in bomb threats and kick over headstones because they don’t understand someone else’s religion. And I honestly feel bad for them. What happened in someones life that they feel good doing that? I can honestly say that I have never left anon hate anywhere. The most anon stuff I’ve ever left were fic requests and praise for people. And even that I stopped doing months and months and MONTHS AGO. Cuz I didn’t get why I had to do it anonymously, you know? Why couldn’t I say it with my name? So I do now. But idk. At least know your audience, you know? I’m openly and constructively critical of the books. So like….I’m not even a good target. It can’t be fun when you find out I agree with you. LOL. #KnowYourAudience
Im tired of people on shows saying things like "but theyre your parents" or "you dont realize how lucky you are that your parents are alive" to characters who have expressed negative feelings about their parents. Some people dont have good familial relationships and being related to someone doesnt require you to behave civilly, or have any contact with them
Absolutely! I couldn’t agree more! You are in no way obligated to forgive your parents, or anyone from your family, just because you share the same blood. Especially when they’re toxic influences in your life and don’t love you or respect you or want what’s best for you. You don’t need to set aside your well-being for terrible people just because they’re your parents. And that happens in real life as well. I hate when people try to pressure me into talking with one of my family members who has done horrible things to me just because we’re family. Absolutely not. I don’t want him in my life, he’s a terrible person and his presence in my life would make me miserable so no thanks.
I believe that you should try and move on from what they’ve done to you and not become bitter or filled with anger but acceptance is different from forgiveness. Forgiveness is a lot more complicated and you can’t just force it and even if you do forgive someone, it doesn’t mean that you want them back in your life. I know you’re saying this in regard to Mon-El and his parents and I do think that he doesn’t owe them forgiveness just because they are his parents. They were horrible people to him and to others around them and they don’t deserve their son to be honest.
My father is one of the strongest people I have ever met, but also very stubborn when it comes to admitting pain. I saw him become very ill, he couldn’t even get up from his bed without crying. He refuses to go to hospitals because we are not so financially sound.
The affordable care act helped my family with a lot of little things, but I am most grateful that it saved my father back in February 2016.
Throwback to just a few months ago, in the warm San Diego sun☀️ As I’m trying to find some new swimsuits for this new year, I’m reminded of all the people over the past few years that have told me how I’ve inspired them to wear their first swimsuit or bikini. Honestly that’s one of the best compliments you can give me! If I’ve inspired someone to enjoy life a little more, to not be afraid of a camera, to embrace the feel of the sun shining on their exposed skin, then it’s worth it all.
So here’s to finding some hot new swimsuits and making some waves 🌊💙
dont get me wrong i love jotaro kujo and i love stardust crusaders so dont think this is jotaro hate but like the whole fandom rides jotaro like a damn bike but then some people turn around like “giorno is so boring”. im not going too deep on this analysis because im tired and i want to sleep but like…
giorno is about as expressive at first glance as jotaro, just as calm and composed, (and albeit has a vastly different personality) but genuinely has a lot more thought and intention in the way his personality is, and a deal more complexity as show by the narrative. while jotaro seems to serve as an archetypal “strong silent” character (while subverting some tropes and not entirely playing into them in other cases because araki knows how to properly write archetypes without making them uninteresting), giorno’s design seems to be a lot more intentional in regard to his heritage.
giorno displays a mix of jonathan and dio’s characteristics. he’s charismatic, intelligent, tricky, but also kind, caring, and passionate. He’s got a very righteous drive and a strong moral compass, but it is self-serving (thought not malicious) and with something akin to dio’s unrelenting ambition, he’s a little terrifying and unstoppable. He also has a tendency for cruelty, like Dio, but not towards his allies, whom he comes to rely on very deeply, like Jonathan.
He has a lot of his own traits as well. he doesn’t lose his shit like dio does, but he clearly shows distress and rage, though he seems to keep a pretty good grip on himself so as to control those emotions and use them to his advantage, instead of letting them control him. there’s even more to his character, stuff that even the first few chapters of part 5 make clearly evident. he’s a product of his ancestry and his abusive childhood as well as his redeeming encounter that led to his life’s dream… giorno is altogether a really interesting character but he gets so much more shit even when his very same (baseless) criticisms could apply to a character that the fandom worships. i get that the translations arent the best but its not that deep yo
tl;dr if you dont like giorno i beg u to reconsider he is a good boy
I hate when people call gay fairytales or historical fiction modern
as in “a Victorian love story with a modern twist” or “an updated version of Cinderella”
there’s nothing inherently modern about same-sex relationships. LGBT people weren’t invented by Macklemore in 2010. making us out to be some totally new thing cuts us off from our history, which feels a lot like erasure to me
your story isn’t modern unless it’s actually modern. otherwise, it’s just gay
I’ll never understand why some people think being called weird is an insult. I’d hate to be normal. We’re all a little weird in our own ways and that’s what makes us unique. That’s why I’m in the habit of thanking people that call me weird. For I just can’t imagine a more wonderful compliment.
jesynelson: Was gonna leave it because people love to write shit all the time and it’s just something we have to get used to but it’s gone to far now and it’s really starting to get on my boobs 🙄 there never has been and never will be a feud between my Perrie winkle and me! I didn’t like the one poxy picture of myself so I asked Pez to crop me out and like a good friend she did and for some strange reason there has now been a story created that me and my Pez hate each other 🙈 biggest load of bulls**t I’ve ever heard! Anyway just wanted to clear that one up with everyone cs it’s gotten a tad out of hand now 👍🏻

Hey, guys. I would really like if you could help with sending some love to Alycia on Twitter. The #FlowersforAlycia on Instagram was and it still is successful. But there still are people who are spreading lots of untrue facts about her and they are sending lots of hate to her and her friends. So if you would just spare 5 minutes of your time and send something nice to her and report those accounts it would be really, really appreciated. She deserves love and nice things, even if it’s just a tweet. Thank you. #FlowersForAlycia [thank you lovely person whoever you are for thinking of this #]
