spew into this

Jesus fucking Christ I stay off of tumblr for one day and already people are coming off of Twitter and on tumblr to attack shippers.

Anyone can think two people are cute together and ship them

Anyone can create fanart, fanfiction etc about that pairing so long as it’s a subculture and it stays that way (isn’t brought up to the artists or actors or whatever)

Just because you do not ship a couple doesn’t give you the right to spew hatred and dedicate a lot of time to hating people or the ship. (for example I do not ship Vkook or Sugamon etc, but I’ll simply blacklist the tag so I don’t see it. I’m not gonna roast kids for enjoying art or whatever)

If your petty ass can’t handle that then get off the Internet. There’s a lot worse on here than 14 year olds screaming over two guys in a band maybe being gay or bi.

If you want to know what racism and anti-blackness in fandom looks like you just have to take a look at the tags for Supergirl and James Olsen these days, and watch fandom mischaracterize (ie lie) about what a black character has done, demonize him, and spew all sort of hatred for a canon couple featuring a black man and fandom’s favorite white woman. Bonus for the way these fans throw disabled fans under the bus by gleefully using an ableist term to name the ship they dislike.

The James Olsen tag is mostly comprised by hate for his character. These people shipping two white women misguidedly claim that a romance between a black man and a white woman is “heteronormative”, misappropiating the word, because there’s nothing “normative” about interracial romances, and very rarely we get to see a black man as romantic and desirable.

They take one episode in s2 where James (along with everybody else in Kara’s life, including Alex, a white woman people have no problem shipping Lena with) distrusted Lena and then ADMITED HE WAS WRONG and apologized in the same episode and they claim that “James has spent years distrusting Lena or talking trash behind her back”. They take that episode and one scene in this season where James worried Lena might have accidentally caused the lead poisoning (he explicitly said he believed it wasn’t on purpose, and this is what Lena herself believed) while, in true Fandom Racism 101, they ignore or erase all their positive interactions, like James saving Lena’s life twice (he took a bullet for her), or defending her and her company in the first episode of the season, or his offers of help and support for her as head of CatCo despite Lena trying to profesionally sideline him even though James had been in charge of the company for a whole season, or how he straight up told her he saw her as more than a extension of her brother. Fandom paints their mutual , good-natured (and obviously romantic) banter in the office as unhealthy, toxic and misogynistic.

James started Supergirl as the male lead and the romantic interest of the protagonist, only to be sidelined and his relationship erased from the show’s canon for the sake of pairing Kara with a problematic frat boy that forced into the trope of “woman has to make shitty white boy a better man” yet now fandom is claiming Karamel is better than James/Lena. Hell, you can even see a few posts where they say Lena has more chemistry with the man who tried to kill her, destroy her company and framed her for poisoning children than with James. And then they claim that it (or the running joke about how Lena has more chsmitry with inanimate objects than a black man) has nothing to do with race, and they are just being critical of the ship (where do their critical faculties go when it comes to their own fandom? No one knows).

They claim the James/Lena romance have “no chemistry” (an accusation historically levelled at interracial romances on tv, including James/Kara in season 1 of Supergirl) or that it was rushed, despite the fact that every romance on Supergirl is rushed (but they don’t complain about the other romances) and that James/Lena had been set up since the first episode of this season.

The lack of self-awareness in this fandom is atonishing. They do not realize how it looks when they post about an interracial romance with screams of “ew!”, “gross!” or “disgusting!”. They will use the fact that they ship two white women to belittle any other kind of representation, or excuse their blatant racism - when they themselves had pretended to be the “woke” group in fandom, criticizing the racism in sidelining James as a romantic interest for Mon-el or in casting a white woman for a Latinx character with Maggie. Those critcisms are valid but now it’s clear these people were only faking concern for racial representation, since they’ve turned around and treated James and James/Lena this way. And as a white queer person I’m tired of their bullish behavior in thinking marginalization as LGBT trumps race issues (making QWOC feel unwelcome in this fandom in the process) and using queer oppression to not practice intersectionality and spread racism in this already racist fandom. It’s offensive to our community and I’m tired.

I’m going to leave some receipts here, in case anyone wants to claim this never happens, because the Supergirl fandom needs to start being critical of these things.

tl;dr: the Supergirl fandom needs to take out the trash and stop this lastest hate campaign against a black character

EDIT: @ Karamel fans trying to interact with this post: James was sidelined and demoted from male lead and his relationship with Kara erased so she could be thrown at a shitty white guy she had to teach to be decent. Karamel is racist and built on misogynistic tropes, and the Karamel fandom demonized James as much as the Supercorp are doing now (except their ship is unproblematic and had it ever been a canon possibility it would have been representation - Karamel erased interracial representation). Now that James is no longer a threat to your trashy ship you want to act all high and mighty and like you’re so much moral than the Supercorp? Well do it out of my post. Especially if you are going to put racist anti-Karolsen stuff in the comments.

anonymous asked:

dude the other anons au thingy where sabo is the one writing one piece should be a thing, what do u think ace/luffys reactions to some of the arcs would be and why did sabo write them? like aces reaction to luffy getting boa and him getting a whole through his chest

first off ace would be SO bitter that he’s not the main character

ace: why is everything revolving around luffy? why did he get to go to the sky island? WHY IS LUFFY THE ONE WHO ENDS UP ON AN ISLAND WITH THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN IN THE WORLD?

luffy: well at least she’s not the most hungry woman in the world or else that would’ve been a problem

i feel like sabo writes things based on what kind of made-up adventures they went on as children. of course, luffy is the main character because luffy was the one with the biggest imagination, spewing out absolute nonsense, but incredible nonsense. nonsense that really inspired sabo to start writing in the first place. 

as for ace getting a hole through his chest, well, that didn’t go very well

ace: why the HELL did i die? why the hell did YOU get to come back into the story? 

sabo: blondes have more fun 

It’s interesting when a lesbian or bi woman has an incongruent opinion and people start showing their real colors accusing them of being fake lesbians/bi women/bihets/straight/lesbophobic/biphobic and people take it as an excuse to spew nasty homophobic shit.

Well say something about inter community tension and we’ll get nasties in our inbox like “yeah lesbian are evil/mean/whatever” like no….. u don’t get to use this as an excuse to let ur homophobic freak flag fly.

We have gotten accused of biphobia many times despite being bi women, and a bi women’s blog. Lesbian bloggers will say something and dissenters will call them lesbophobic. Either way y’all slip and start saying some wildly homophobic shit bc u think we’ll let it slide.

Jokes on you though cuz we don’t and also you’re not any better

jeannie may crawford was such a fucking dumbass like oh i need some money. better sell the pregnant wife of a retired young 1st fucking recon NCR sniper whose entire career was dedicated to killing legionnaires. to some legionnaires. nothing bad will happen then can’t think of a better idea than that

This is not an exaggeration:
  • White Feminists: Listen, you don't get to pick and choose who you defend! As feminists we have to defend ALL women. That's right. Even the racist ones who call you racial slurs and hope you suffer for your entire lives. Even the ones that chant "feminism is cancer" and hope all feminists die. You have to defend them as a feminist.
  • Me, a person with a brain: Um, I think the fuck not.
  • White Feminist: Then you're not a real feminist!
  • *something terrible happens to women of color*
  • White Feminists: *long silence* you can't expect me to constantly care about everyone 24/7 365.

me when i fuck up my whole life and then hope no one notices

so hey when will tumblr learn that North Africa is a very diverse place and there are light-skinned Africans other than dark-skinned Africans the same way there are light-skinned South Europeans and dark skinned South Europeans IT’S ALMOST LIKE MEDITERRANEAN PEOPLE HAVE A HUGE VARIETY OF GENETIC TRAITS THAT DO NOT CONFORM TO YOUR AMERICA-CENTRIC AND FRANKLY RACIST VIEWS OF WHAT THE WORLD LOOKS LIKE…….

STOP COMPARING THEIR LIES

Lyra lied out of NECESSITY. She lied to prevent her brother from being KILLED.

Maggie lied to PROTECT ALEX FROM EMOTIONAL STRESS. She lied to help her partner cope with her new identity and ensure that her coming out experience wasn’t miserable like hers was. It was a SELFLESS lie.

Mon-El lied for CONVENIENCE. He lied because he was fully aware that the DEO would throw him in jail if they knew his true identity. He lied to PROTECT HIMSELF FROM BEING HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR HIS COWARDICE AND LONG HISTORY OF SELFISH CRUELTY.

Stop comparing their lies and pretending that they are the same. THEY ARE NOT THE SAME.

it makes me so uncomfortable when i see europeans acting all high and mighty about what’s happening in the usa right now as if we aren’t experiencing a terrifying far right revival as well??? as far as i know, every european country from ireland to france to germany and italy have nazi parties or organisations who are growing in numbers and popularity and it is incredibly irresponsible for us to act like that isn’t the case just so we can seem better than america. it needs to stop here and it needs to stop there and it needs to stop now

i really dislike it when people try and shrug off what bakugou did to deku as just “bullying.”

there’s a line where bullying turns into abuse. and bakugou crossed over that line a lot. bakugou didn’t tease deku til he cried, he didn’t poke fun at deku until he was upset; bakugou abused him. he tormented deku into crushing his self esteem, he suicide baited him without a second thought, he’s mercilessly beat up deku multiple times from they were young and he’s done it again in the manga. he’s hurt him so much that deku has reached a point where he despises bakugou, even if he still admires him.

point is, bakugou isn’t just a bully, he’s an abuser.

I wonder if the Inquisition has debriefings? Like, after the entire crew gets back from a mission they have a meeting with the advisors regarding everything that happened. 

Or maybe everyone in the party is required to write a field report? I bet Cullen reads them all, just sifting through endless crap from the Inner Circle:

Sera’s reports consist only of crude drawings and obscenities – he actually finds those entertaining. She’s quite inventive and the point is always rather clear.

Cassandra’s are always perfect and detailed, if not a bit stilted. Not that he minds. 

Dorian’s are always about the lack of amenities or certain comforts. Can’t you order us thicker blankets? I was freezing the entire time and there was a rock under my back. 

Blackwall’s reports are always helpful, he makes notes about soldiers, or various things that need to be done in the area. 

Iron Bull’s are always just an account of the things he killed or fought. Sometimes he’ll share a good joke he heard too.

Vivienne’s are to the point, crisp and tidy, never wanting. She’ll also tack on notes about the Inquisitor, or her companions, bits of pertinent information.

Cole doesn’t write reports, but sometimes he’ll pop into Cullen’s office and tell him a few things of note before disappearing again. 

Solas’ are scholarly, recounting the areas they’d explored and interesting landmarks, usually with a very detailed map attached. 

And then there are Varric’s, written on fine vellum imported from a printer in Kirkwall, the penmanship always neat, and flowing over the pages. And there are many pages as Varric describes, in that detailed way only a writer can, the exact way his boots squelched while in the Fallow Mire; the damp, musty smell that clung to him after spending ten days soaking wet on the Storm Coast, without a chance to dry out; the biting chill that cut through him in the Emprise du Lion, and the way the dark branches of the bare trees struck a bleak contrast against the snow. The fucking endless snow. 

It’s when they return from the Hissing Wastes and Cullen sees that Varric’s report is eighteen pages detailing exactly where he found sand on his person, that Cullen informs him he is exempt from writing any further reports.
