So Felix said the n-word in a live stream and a lot of people immediately declared him to be the embodiment of Satan and demanded Sean and Mark to abandon him and Marzia to leave his ass and…
I wanted to be a bit more nuanced than that but I didn’t expect this much reaction so I didn’t make myself very clear and I didn’t give too much context as to what I meant.
I posted this on the matter and I said I’d get to all your reactions so here we go, I will be talking about this in different parts, getting to all your reactions and taking those in consideration. I won’t be commenting on all reactions individually though as they way too many already for me to get to, but all of them have been read and taken into consideration.
edit: I give up… this thing had 300 notes yesterday, now it’s at 1200+ I can’t get to all of you but I’ll address as much as possible.
First of all, I want to say that I acknowledge Felix made a mistake, I agree he shouldn’t have said what he did, I don’t condone him saying it at all.
Secondly, when I made the post I made, I was looking in the pewdiepie tag that was going absolutely insane. I wasn’t speaking against those saying that he made a mistake, I was speaking against those who were acting like Felix murdered their family (+ pets) and burned their house down after. But I understand that I didn’t make that clear in my post.
Third, I’m tagging each and every single person who added to the convo, since most of you don’t follow me. Feel free to add to this, how things are in your culture, but please read everything first.
Please don’t comment on Part 1 before you’ve read the rest as your comment may already be addressed in a later part. I know it’s a lot, and you might not be interested in reading, which is fine, but I figured some of you might be interested in the full story.
The first 4 parts are actually not at all about Felix, purely about the word and cultural differences. This is not an excuse for Felix at all, it’s simply an essay about words, languages, nuance, sentiment and losing things in translation. Part 5 is the only one that’s about Felix. The first 4 are in no way trying to excuse him.
The Old Married Spirk Challenge for 2014 has come to an end. I’d like to extend a huge THANK YOU to the very talented people who worked so hard contributing to the awesome collection of fanwork listed below. <3
I hope everyone enjoys all of these wonderful submissions!
I mean i’m not you commander but you do all follow me, 100 of you!!! OMG I HAVE 100 FOLLOWERS!!!!
So, I am kind of stunned. I don’t really do much I don’t write stuff, I don’t make stuff besides reblog lots of SPN stuff and fics. I gush way too much at people when i enjoy their writing. I add way too many comments to pictures i reblog. I probably annoy half of you and freak out the other half. But i guess you are all slightly insane any way. BECAUSE YOU FOLLOW ME!!
Seriously though guys, I love you all. Not in the romantic smooshy sex way. But in the way, every single one of you, at some point, has made me smile, or cry or run off for a cold shower or laugh so hard i almost peed (i’ve had three kids, those muscles don’t work so well anymore). And I hope in some way i make you feel as happy as you all make me feel. Thank you, from the bottom of my tiny, SPN battered heart. Hugs all round xoxoxox.
