yeah I'm bitter

hey just your bi-monthly reminder that every song on Made in The AM (2015) by Britsh-Irish band One Direction deserved a Grammy, and a lot more praise/recognition from the GP & critics than it actually got, because the album was an eclectic mix of sounds and styles while still remaining true to who the band was fundamentally – no, not their bubblegum pop image – but who they were and who they always strove and fought to be but nope, i’m not bitter! (: haha! happy days!

Canon Arya Appreciation Week → Day 2: Family Relationship

“You may be as different as the sun and the moon, but the same blood flows through both your hearts. You need her, as she needs you…and I need both of you, gods help me.

I.. I don’t even know if i should could translate this :D

He just kinda swears in Russian (meaning something like “Well that’s just great”, “What am i going to do with you now?”)

i feel like some movie/ tv show creators seriously underestimated me like did they honestly think i didn’t have it in me to ship 2 characters who look good just standing next to each other????

I’m wary of the blogs (white and non) that are just like “lol glad I missed today’s drama!!!!” as if the revelation that a positive and safe place for MOC (muns of color) was actually run by a racist fucker who created the blog for the sole intent to harm MOC in the long run was just “drama”, and not an aggressive attack against us.

“haha I can go back to business as usual now that that’s over!” right right, go ahead and keep uplifting the status quo where white is right. tell me more abt your fake ass activism in which your blog is a safe space for POC then in the same breath try to police us when we express rage and distrust against white muns and characters.

i get that they wanted to make the belle dress simple to allow more movement and how emma wanted it to be more modern without too many hoops, a corset, etc. but honestly if i were cast to play a character with an iconic dress from a beautiful historical time period i would be geeking out too much to even care about movement or freedom or any of that i’d have such mad respect for the costume designer and i’d be excited to be suffering in corsets and hoops lmao like how many people get to have fun and get paid to wear amazingly designed baroque ballgowns? not me that’s for sure but i’d do it in a heartbeat

i mean you can’t really blame people for disliking the accords when the first mission post accord signing is one where they are ordered to shoot on sight?? Shoot a man who is widely known to have been brainwashed and tortured and manipulated by hydra for the majority of his life because he’s suspected of a bombing (because of a shitty grainy security cam picture)? Yikes

everyone is all about defending ‘childish’ interests like cartoons and will go on about “you’re never too old for cartoons/video games!!” but that’s only if it’s Cool Cartoons/interests like gravity falls or steven universe or pokemon or animal crossing or whatever. as soon as you show interest in something meant for a much younger audience or just outside that Cool Category, like thomas the tank engine or sonic the hedgehog, you and your interest are a laughing stock and 90% of the content you find about it is shitty memes. im so sick of things being considered “”“cringey”“” and somehow ok to make fun of

I feel like a lot of ARMYs tend to forget that Taehyung is a grown ass man.

And apart of me gets it. It’s so fucking easy to get lost in his endlessly deep, dark brown eyes. And his bright, dazzling smiles. And his playful, easygoing demeanor. But we have to remember that beneath all those wonderful things is the heart of a young man who is working his absolute hardest to continue to grow and learn as both a person and as an artist. There is so much love in Kim Taehyung’s heart, I swear. There’s so much love for his fans; he wants to share as much as he can with us because that’s one of his many ways of saying that he’s thinking about us, he cares about us, and he wants us all to continue to get to know him better. So that we can experience elements of himself that we wouldn’t normally get to see during interviews or variety shows or even on stage. 

That’s why he recommends songs on Twitter. That’s why he takes the time to post cute, personal updates on the fan cafe. That’s why, the other day, he made a post sharing his favorite photographer with us. Unfortunately, there was backlash to his post because some of the photographs contained nudity. From my understanding, Taehyung removed the photos from the fan cafe and then went on to explain why he posted what he did. I’m assuming this is because he was criticized for posting images that contained nudity. 

Now, I’m not a member of the fan cafe, so I can’t speak exactly to the demographic. But my assumption is that a majority of the members should be old enough to maturely view non-graphic, non-sexual images of art without throwing a fit. I am also assuming that they should be old enough to grasp the fact that Taehyung is a 20 year old (22 Korean age), adult man who can appreciate the body’s naked form outside of a sexual context.

So can we just let Kim Taehyung live? Do you know how discouraging and heartbreaking it is to share something you love with someone you care about and have them immediately reject it? It’s legitimately one of the worst feelings because it’s like they’re rejecting you. By rejecting something you love, it essentially feels like they are rejecting you. And that’s what some fans, people who Taehyung adores, did. They rejected him.

I’m sitting next to a bag of chips and a pile of homework and i’m not touching it until I get this off my chest.

Listen, I know that feminism is all about supporting women’s right to do what they want with their life. clothes, makeup, career choice, music taste, sex life, all that shit is our choice- and I wouldn’t change it! that’s absolutely how it should be! but there is literally no nuanced support of women’s choices on this site. At first, it was about supporting girls who didn’t line up with the patriarchy, but tha slowly began to manifest itself as an attack on girls who did, so we began supporting them too and where are we now?

Girls hearing “clothes have no gender!” in one ear and that their disdain for traditionally feminine clothing like dresses is just internalized misogny in the other. Girls who dislike makeup because of the weight it carries- social backlash for choosing not to wear it, sometimes even a past of being bullied and/or ostracized- being outright laughed at by girls who do wear makeup and praise themselves as “revolutionary” for choosing to do what they’re expected while crushing fellow girls under their heels.  Music taste is its own nightmare, and sex. there is no knowing if you’ll get “support girls whether they have sex or not!”or “lol we get it Janice you’re a virgin who’s bitter at girls who have sex” on this website.(Body positivity in general has me fucked up, but that’s for another rant of it’s own.)

So here’s the thing: everything i listed up there? Makeup? Dresses? Pop culture music? All the sex you want? I’ll support that until i’m dead. Because as i said before, that is our damn choice, and anyone who wants to take that away can fight.

BUT!

If you celebrate your “reclaiming” of dresses and makeup while shitting on girls who don’t like one or either of those things, I can’t stand with that shit.

If you gladly listen to Justin Beiber or whoever the hell else is called popular and refuse to be called basic but won’t hesitate to tell teenage girls listening to MCR that they’re “cringey” and to kill themselves, I don’t stand with that shit.

If you scream “my body my choice!” at the top of your lungs but view girls who don’t like sex- ace or not- as conservative puppets, i don’t like you and I don’t stand with that shit.

Jesus. You can support girls who are considered “basic” by society and have had their feminism attacked for it without utterly stepping on girls who aren’t traditionally feminine at all and have had their womanhood attacked for it.

Thanks.
