who needs a television

When you think about it, it’s actually quite sad and scary how many people ship Karamel not seeing how unhealthy and toxic the relationship itself is. They perceive the relationship as something normal thinking that’s the exact way all relationships should work because “who cares the guy treats the girl like shit if he’s hot;” they literally aspire to have relationship just like that only because that’s exactly what they’ve seen/read being romanticized and glamorized for all those years in movies, books or TV shows. And that is exactly why representation matters. 

Many Karamel fans are feeling insulted when someone tells them their ship is unhealthy and instead of listening for once they just give us irrelevant arguments, top it off with “it’s just a ship, chill,” and block us. No, the reason why many people are pissed off at what has been happening to Supergirl ever since CW happened is not that we are “heterophobic” or “trying to ruin your fun with shipping,” it’s the fact that there are many young people watching the show, looking up mostly to Kara, and when they see a scene where Mon-El literally intentionally insults her in front of everyone because something didn’t go his way but she ends up with him at the end of the episode anyway because that’s what “she’s supposed to do,” no one’s gonna tell them “well, that’s actually bullshit; that’s not how relationships should work.” And to top this all off, after episode those young people go around Twitter or Tumblr and all they see is y’all calling Kara a bitch and swooning 😍😍😍 over Mon-El calling Kara selfish for no apparent reason because that was so cute, relationship goals 👌👌👌.

So maybe try to pull your heads out of your asses for once, see what’s right in front of you and just stop. Don’t glamorize something unhealthy only because you find Chris Wood hot or whatever other reason you have.

  • television shows: i mean, who needs lighting?? let's just not use any lighting. forget the lighting. oh, but add a whole ton of contrast!! yeah, do that. can't forget about those blurry flashbacks!! oh, and let's make things really grainy!! love that, too. and why don't we put the credits over really awesome scenes?? yeah, that's great.

ppl on this website: i want a show about the everyday citizens that are surrounded by superheros. 

nbc: ok yeah sure 

ppl on this website: more diverse casts 

nbc: *makes vanessa hudgens the star* *hires danny pudi as the second lead* *hires the delightful ron funches*

nbc: ok ur gonna watch right?

*later*

ppl on this website: who are these ppl? bruce wayne would never do this. i cant believe u took artistic liberties to make a work place comedy?? even tho ur the network who produced the office, 30 rock, parks and rec—who are these ‘superheros’ where is superman?? where is batman?? i havent watched a single episode but i know this sucks. this is the worst. who will cater to my superhero television needs??? if only there was a network who specialized in that. anyway this show blows. i never watched it but it blows. 

nbc: 

Jon Snow

**images are zoomed in for clarity**

Top: Jon Snow turning his head to face someone - as shown in the earliest GoT trailer (we all know it’s Sansa, you can see bits of red hair in the actual screen cap, on the extreme right)

Bottom: Newest pic of Jon Snow leaving/returning from/to Winterfell, looking at someone and making a slight tentative and shy wave.

Quiz time! Do you see the similarities?? (hint: it’s in the eyes)

  • What I say: I’m fine
  • What I mean: Skandar Keynes is one of the best humans of our generation, and I will never understand why he didn’t get any more acting jobs after Narnia. He has the talent, the looks, the accent, and the general awesomeness that would make ANY director want to cast him. I could see him in a British drama series or really any show like Game of Thrones, Doctor who, or Sherlock. He’d be absolutely fantastic in them. The fact that I will never get to see Skandar’s beautiful face on TV again hurts my delicate heart.

Hey guys, my Conspiracy crew, can you do something for me? For yourselves? For literally everyone on this site? Please don’t fight with strangers on the Internet. After all these years I still don’t understand why we’re doing this. There are SO many people on this site that don’t like what we have to say and you know what? That’s perfectly fine. Don’t fight them. Don’t call them names. And you know what else? Don’t stick up for yourselves when they do it to you. Yeah. I’m suggesting you take it.

Everyone on this site is trying to have fun. I get dragged all the time but I’ve never once, not once in a year on this site, engaged someone who vehemently disagreed with me. Anyone can check my blog, you’ll never find an example of me 1) attaching myself to other’s posts to disrespect them 2) publishing hateful anons 3) Calling anyone names 4) giving the microphone to people who don’t like me. It’s not hard.

I once lost 40 followers in one day a few months ago because I stuck up for a Sheriarty blog who, I believed, made a good point. And you know what? Good. I didn’t want those people on my blog anyways.

People are going to attack you all day long. Stay in your own lane. Use the appropriate tags. Don’t take everything personally. We’re here to have fun. How can you possibly have fun arguing with strangers about a TV show? Block who you need to. Avoid certain tags.

People are going to read your blog. They decide if they like what you have to say or if they don’t. The choice is always theirs. No need to assert your ideas to people who don’t agree with you or don’t like what you have to say. Those who want to listen, they will stay. And, honestly, most of those bloggers you don’t like will leave you alone if you leave them alone.

You don’t have to listen to anything i just said, if you don’t want to. This is just a suggestion. But I’m having a great time on this site because I get back what I put in.
