Ok, so let’s talk about something that has been bothering since I first came to this fandom. Why is it that whenever there is meta addressing the very fucked up ways in which we ignore and exclude characters of color in our works that there is always that one person that has to say, “Well why don’t you create your own stuff instead of complain?”
I wonder if this particular person has ever considered the fact that the people who make the argument for more representation for characters of color in fanworks are the ones producing and contributing fanworks. Why do ppl in this fandom have a problem with these trends being pointed out and use this useless ass presumptuous argument to take away from what’s actually being said?
Even if that particular person is not the most active in the fandom in the first place, it’s always important to be critical of the problematic trends that occur in fandom. A lot of y'all I noticed don’t seem to be able to handle or accept those criticisms because you either know it directly includes you and your lack of participation and that makes you uncomfortable, or you don’t want to bother to put the work in when marginalized groups decide to criticize shitty behavior in fandom.
So before I hear anybody try and tell me what I’ve done for this fandom, just being able to see the trends in that fandom (and also how they might mirror other fandoms) is enough, what I wanna know is why are you so pressed when ppl point this obvious shit out? Like it’s pretty obvious when you try to look for Finn-centric fics on AO3 and most of them are tagged Reylo or some other dumbass unrelated shit that that has something to do with the way white fandom interacts and belittles the characters of color. It’s definitely not cool that a nobody like fucking Army Husk (a white male character) has more fics that either of the leads of TFA (and don’t tell me no dumb fucking bullshit like “he was more interesting than Rey or Finn” BITCH WHERE?? FOR 3 FUCKING MINUTES?)
In what goddamn context does this make any sense if not to explain this fandom’s race/gender problem?
Who the fuck are y'all trying to fool??? Come Episode 8 I better not hear no goddamn shit from this fandom cause if y'all could really understand how much I’ve had it with this shit. Like you really can’t see the disparity between alla of that shit? And the first thing you wanna tell me is to make more works? Instead of questioning why there is an overwhelming amount of works for a white male character that only had three minutes of fucking screentime???.
we all exist as nothing more than electrical signals encoded by our temporal lobe; touch the screen of reality maybe you’ll be dispel the illusion cast upon your soul.
the morning star guides my way toward the twilight till i’m safe in the shade; and don’t sign your name.
i could care less if you attended this meeting – it was just a waste of time anyway. and don’t text me asking me why i’m gone for the day.
i’ve learned to spare my words, not that i care about your hurts, it’s just what’s fair is not what works.
just delete my name from your vocabulary and i’ll be happy. crumble up my note and throw it away as i cease to be known
i don’t fucking know how the universe works – i’m just a good pretender, all i want is for the universe to leave me alone.
If you like my writing and wish donate to a good cause, my book was offically released today and you can get HERE!On December 31th of 2017 I’ll send a portion of all generated sales to an honest charity of our collective choosing to help kids diagnosed with terminal illnesses.
But I don’t want small talk. Text me, and without saying hello, tell me why you got so angry at your sister this morning. Tell me why you have a scar shaped like Europe on the left side of your neck. Send me paragraphs about the time you spent at your grandmother’s house that one summer. Call me when I’m half asleep and tell me why you believe in God. Tell me about the first time you saw your dad cry. Go on for hours about things that may not seem important because I promise that I’ll be hanging on to every word you say. Tell me everything. I don’t want someone who just talks about the weather.
Can viners and big youtubers pls leave kpop alone 👊
I’m so sick of vine stars and big youtubers reacting to kpop because they’ve run out of ideas and want to use kpop for views. Like it’s the most obvious shit.
Instead of subscribing to these idiots who are often racist, fake or creepy why not subscribe to actual kpop fans who do reactions to new kpop comebacks? Why not support the actual fans who have hardly any subscribers instead of people who text or overhype during an mv and don’t bother once the camera is off?
Don’t support these ppl as they’re literally using kpop as a means to make money through views. I want kpop to become big thing but I don’t want it to be used to stroke youtubers egos and fill their bank accounts.
I know every generation thinks theirs is the best, and I also know that generational thinking is flawed and constructed and ultimately harmful, but god damn it do I ever love Millennials. I love that we take selfies to capture moments when we feel good about ourselves. I love that we have created an entirely new sub-language in internet speak, that incorporates emojis and purposely incorrect punctuation and using capital letters for Emphasis in a way that means something completely different than other forms of emphasis like all caps or italicized text. I love that we embrace fandom culture and love our shows and bands as fiercely and unapologetically as we do. I love that we are entertained by watching strangers on YouTube play video games and could not care less if our parents don’t understand why we enjoy it. I love that we are a generation of women who know that external and internal misogyny is real, is an enormous problem, and are fighting back against it. I love that we romanticize consent. I love that we are constantly checking ourselves and each other for ignorance or problematic behavior. I love how quickly we learn lessons when someone calls us out for being wrong, and how willing we are to never make the same mistake again. I love how hard we work - I know so many people who are working two jobs and going to school and still manage to be there for their friends and keep up with family obligations. I don’t understand where older people get this idea that we are entitled. Literally I have never met anyone who expects less from life than a Millennial does. We have enormous, impossible dreams but we are not capable of being entitled because we literally expect the world to give us nothing. We are the generation whose parents beat us over the head with you can do anything!! and then had the rug pulled out from under us when it turned out that wasn’t true at all, and now we are all muddling through the chaos together and trying to figure out how to reconceptualize what we thought we knew. I love our casual cynicism, the way we casually wish for death but at the same time we value life so intensely. I love our complete refusal to accept the validity of power structures like institutional racism and the patriarchy and capitalism. I love that we are so immediately accepting of any and all sexualities or genders. I love that we are the generation that doesn’t let people on the internet get away with saying shitty things anonymously. I love that no Millennial has ever been willing to accept “that’s just the way it is” about something that shouldn’t be the way it is.
The world is about to get so much fucking better, in the next 10-20 years as the Millennial generation becomes adults in positions of power with the actual ability to create change instead of just wishing for it. Do not ever let anyone tell you that you’re stupid because you like the puppy filter on SnapChat. We are about to change the world, with cute, cartoon dog-ears in our selfies as we do.
Goddammit I H A T E when you go visit a MyCastle and it’s like “hey, friend! Easy seize and skills! :)” so you go to fight, thinking they maybe have this rare skill you really want for this character AND IT’S ABSOLUTE HELL THEIR UNITS ARE ARMED TO THE TEETH WITH +6 FORGED WEAPONS, ALL PERFECTLY ABLE TO REACH YOU IN ONE TURN AND LVL 99 LIKE WHAT THE HELL I JUST WANTED TO HAVE A GOOD TIME AND I EVEN GAVE YOU A GREAT ACCESSORY WHY YOU GOTTA BE LIKE THIS YOU DIDN’T DESERVE THIS ACCESSORY YOU DECEIVED ME
