when people complain

Talking with writers online

Their stories: Amazing grammar, soaring vocabulary, beautiful imagery and prose which flows like a river.

In chats: no capitalisation or punctuation, swears like a sailor, misspellings everywhere, acronyms and abbreviations every five words, idek

  • Me, a humble fic farmer, tending her plot of land: neighbor john said there was a shipwar starting just over the hills. what do you think Ma, do you think we'll ever see a shipwar?
  • Ma, clutching her apron to her chest: oh dear, I hope not!
  • Pa, sitting in his rocking chair and smoking his pipe: hmph! there's always been shipwars and there will always be shipwars. you just keep your nose out of it and mind your own business. we ain't got no business messing around in shipwars. now step to it! i want that field of headcanons and plot twists plowed by morning! and keep those plot bunnies from getting at the smut, we can't afford anymore WIPs!

The fact is: When you treat medical health like a business, when the financial bottom line is more important than human beings, then people are going to suffer and die.

If you’re okay with that, then be okay with that, but own it. Don’t hide behind rationalizations and falsehoods. Come right out and say, “I think capitalism is more important than the suffering of human beings.” Don’t pretend to care about the sanctity of life and then show callous disregard for your fellow humans. And if you show such disregard, don’t complain when people say you don’t sincerely care about human lives.

NCT get so much hate

Taeyong: Had one scandal that ended up being a misunderstanding but then people began adding rumours about multiple scandals and bullying. Luckily SM and fans disproved this and it’s stopped. He even cried and apologized for things he didn’t do. How could anyone hate him?

Yuta: So what he had chin surgery and maybe a nose job? Do you think your faves haven’t had surgery? I mean most idols have so your fave probably has. It’s normal in Korea and shouldn’t be such a taboo concept.

Winwin: He has had a few comments about his lack of Korean skills and bringing nothing to the group.

Johnny: This boy has been getting so much hate and I didn’t even realize until recently. So, apparently because of his lack of lines in songs and not leading in dance or rap people have been calling him talentless and ugly and recently he didn’t get the same amount of photos as other members at photoshoot and has been told not to talk so much by writers. Let the guy live, he trained almost 10 years for this.

Doyoung: He’s gotten hate for his looks and his talent and everything else. When Johnny and Doyoung joined 127, he was the one that got the most hate and fans demanding he got switched with Hansol. And he’s often called annoying or too determined by ‘fans’.

Taeil:• It’s not so much hate but more him being completely overlooked. I’ve seen ‘fans’ call him useless but apart from that he’s just not appreciated within the fandom enough. Finding Doyoung stans is hard for me but finding Taeil stans is almost impossible. Give this guy some love please.

Haechan: He get hate comments at the beginning for being ugly and knetz attacked him for his skin tone. He was then hated on for his voice being high and irritating and even saw someone say he copied GDragon (I know 😒). Recently, it got worse when he had a rumour that he was dating or talking to a saesang fan and loads of his fansites shut down like the snakes they are. SM and even his own members have been known to give him the cold shoulder (unintentionally on NCT’s part) and he’s only really got the support he deserves this comeback.

Ten: Ten got a lot of hate at the beginning as I remember people who ‘supported’ SMRookies shared the video or him singing ring ding dong and people said some really nasty stuff about him being talentless, ugly, gay (even if he is, not a bad thing but was used as insult etc).

Dream: They’ve faced so many comments about how young they are and people either call them foetus’s and ignore their hardwork and talent or sexualise them. Also, when 'fans’ complained about them getting their first win and said they didn’t deserve it.

NCT 127: People began to complain because the music style was all over the place. Then When 2 members joined people complained about the change in unit and unstanned them.

They’ve all gotten so much hate from the beginning and I don’t understand why. They’re attractive, talented, hardworking and the idea and their music is so good. I just don’t understand how anyone could hate on such a great group of guys (or any idols really).

hey a reminder since the uk’s undergoing a heatwave rn

average temperature in the uk today is about 27 celsius. that’s ~80 farenheit, i think? which to people who live in, for example, the us or australia doesn’t sound all that hot. BUT:

the uk is generally not a hot country, which means we have no infrastructure to deal with heat. our houses are built to keep heat IN, not out. only rich people have air con in their homes. people don’t usually have ice makers/cold water dispensers in their fridges. our roads sometimes…melt.

also: our heatwaves are very humid. 27 celcius feels closer to about 33, 34. humidity makes it harder to sweat, so people get really hot really easily.

what this means is that heatwaves are dangerous in britain. people die. every year we have a heatwave about 500 people die, most often the old, ill, or very young, from heat-related causes. 

what i’m trying to say is: when british people complain about the heat this week, maybe don’t take the piss? we’re miserable enough as a country already, it doesn’t need adding to.

someone: i gave up on ajin the cgi is so bad and ugly lol

me, crawling up to them with tears in my eyes: tHe sToRy, YoU’rE nEGlecTinG tHe sToRy

I’m done.

I have had it with this fandom and its discourse. First it was anti-shaladin discourse, then it was discourse for liking Lotor as a character, and now there’s this whole: “Shallura is pedophilia now too, ermahgerd I hate the creators” drama. 

It sickens me that you have watered down the meaning of the term pedophilia (at this rate, it’s going to become the new “triggered”). It sickens me that you equate like for a character as defense of the character’s actions. It sickens me that you push your own moral values upon others, when morality is SUBJECTIVE and societal. It sickens me that you attack people and then parade around with some sort of moral superiority as if you are entitled to being pandered to. It sickens me that you have attacked the TEAM for following their own vision and not pandering to you. It sickens me that many of you seem to be so out of touch with reality and unaware of how your actions effect others. Over the years, I have been in many different fandoms with terrible discourse: including the ATLA, Free!, SNK, and Naruto fandoms and in my personal opinion the Voltron Fandom beats out all of them in terms of how terrible it is. The Voltron fandom has created such a toxic environment for itself, it isn’t even funny.

Because here’s the thing: people shouldn’t be SCARED. And everybody is scared. Even the Voltron Team is so fucking scared of this rabid fandom. Josh Keaton, who is a great guy by the way, was one of the most active supporters of shipping in our fandom. And what did he get for it? Attacks (including personal ones) to the point where he isn’t allowed to discuss shipping anymore. And now people complain when the team doesn’t want to talk about it. You did it to yourself people.

No ages have been confirmed. We have been given ranges - sometimes hypocritical ranges - by multiple members of the team. And from what I’ve seen, I don’t even think the team is on the same page when it comes to their ages. So until ages are explicitly stated, you have NO REASON to label a ship as “wrong”, and you NEVER have reason to attack somebody over a ship. Feel free to say: “I’m not comfortable with this ship” all you want, but you have no right to force your opinion down other’s throats. 

I will NOT be participating in fandom matters on this site until shit dies down and people finally start admitting that this is all due to some dumb shipping war. (which I highly doubt is going to happen). If any of you reading this follow me on Youtube for my edits, do not worry as I will still be active there. 

Thanks, and goodbye.

anonymous asked:

ooh what are your Hunk hc's??

oooh nice i’m gonna have so much fun answering this ok nice thank u anon bless u

- he can’t spend money on himself for shit!! not even necessities!! he’s like: (stares at the grocery list of food items he needs to Survive™) “ok but like…. i have a plum in my fridge at home. i don’t need all of this? i’ll be fine” he does need it. he won’t be fine. lance has started tagging along when hunk goes grocery shopping bc he just won’t buy anything for himself otherwise!! he’ll buy gifts for his friends without a second thought though. like. he won’t even plan on it he’s just like: “oh my god that’s such a shiny knife. keith would love that.” he knows keith has too many knives already and probably doesn’t need any more but? it doesn’t stop him from knowing that keith would love that knife specifically. he’s gotta buy it for him. he’s just gotta. (he was right. keith did love it. he’s so great at gifts.)

- he’s a Cat Magnet™. he sits and then there are ten cats using him as a bed. they’re on his shoulders, on his chest, his lap, his face. he doesn’t know who they are or where they came from. he doesn’t question it. he just lives like this.

- he loves painting his nails and he’s really good at it! he works hard to make them all perfect but he doesn’t really mind much when they get messed up.


- sometimes he zones out when people complain to him and when he finally zones back in he’s just like “dump him.” as if he were paying complete attention. even if what they were complaining about had nothing to do with anything that that would possibly solve. his friends always accept that as great advice though.

- he honestly… has the best puns. whenever someone (besides lance. lance is the only exception. no one knows when they established that but they’ve just accepted it by now) insults his puns the entire team is on them like “what the fuck did you just say? we have a giant robot that could kick your ass! we have five lions (part of the robot) that could also kick your ass! yea… you better be careful… asshole.”

- the true Mr. Mystery. reveals nothing about himself, acts like he has nothing to hide. no one suspects a thing

- he can play any instrument by ear! like he’ll just pick it up and bam. it’s perfect. pidge has had five years of piano lessons and could never hope to be as good as he is. she’s not sure if she should be totally pissed or completely in awe. he can’t read music though

- he just has that aura™ that tells you he’s a nice person that you should totally befriend. he doesn’t have to approach people to make friends, because they all approach him

- also he’ll totally talk to cashiers for you if you’re too anxious. he’s a ball of anxiety himself but like? he’s just “screw you anxiety i’m helping my friend and there’s nothing u can do about it”

- anyway i love him

  • you: magnus loves alec more than he's ever loved anyone else
  • me, an intellectual: magnus has loved many people over many centuries and it's incredibly disrespectful to discredit his past loves just to make his relationship with alec seem more "special". magnus having deeply loved people in the past doesn't make his love for alec any less real or important. also, love isn't a contest and having magnus "rank" his various relationships is gross.

i really get pissy when people complain about “easy modes” or other additions to games that make it easier for people to play

literally, who the fuck does it hurt if there are easy modes?  Not everyone plays games to punish themselves or to test themselves.  Some people just want story and and enjoyable experience.  Some people might have certain levels of capability too that would prevent them from playing the game at a certain difficulty level.  Either way, you don’t have to use those additions, so why are you so mad??

oh, never mind, i know why.  “gamers” are so territorial that they can’t possibly handle the idea that “casual” players are “tainting” their space, so they turn to belittling and shaming people who want or need easier levels of difficulty.  Can’t have anyone not like us in the group eh lads

Deaf pet peeve #18392

People who volunteer to caption videos but then put their own commentary in place of actual captions. And then when deaf people complain the volunteers call them “ungrateful” and “self-centered”. 

People who write fanfic are doing the best they can.

Sometimes that best is pretty rough. You can’t know what constraints they’re working with. Education, language barriers, learning disabilities, technology issues, illness (physical and mental), abusive home lives… there are so many, many things people struggle with who post free stories on the web.

Yet they still put themselves out there and share their work.

When I see people complaining about update times or mocking spelling issues or bitching something isn’t British enough it makes me sad. The writer did the best she could under circumstances you do not know, and no one made you read it. You chose to read it.

You could choose to be kind too. You could choose to uplift instead of tear down. You get to make that choice.

I’m not even going to get into how frustrating it is to see people griping about character design who clearly know very little about character design. Particularly regarding designing a character for wide appeal or, especially, designing a character to appeal to children, rather than just looking at character design from a “what appeals specifically to me” perspective
