we’re watching firefly shindig again and it’s been a while since i’ve watched the series, just noting the way the atherton/inara thind is written. like, if being a companion is such a noble, expensive, worldly thing in the future, why is atherton trying to insult her by saying inara’s only good for sex? and why does she blush?
like, i get why people are frustrated. that’s all on the writers there. poor worldbuilding, if indeed their claims about companionship are as they say.
we’re up to like three dead dudes and a dead kid boy on hemlock grove! of course, one of them was practically a tertiary or lower character, and the other two didn’t even have names, neither, i think, did the boy. so.
otoh we now have a high court cult chancellor who’s a woman to replace the writers’ killing practically all the females on the show so that’s exciting
i love how they literally released a design of honey lemon and all of tumblr agreed “she looks like rapunzel!!” and then they release another design where she’s wearing glasses and everybody is like “WOAH WHERE DID RAPUNZEL GO !!!”
what do you mean, clark kent and superman can’t be the same guy! clark kent wears glasses!
but that’s not all
wow who does hiro’s mom look like i have no idea
I really think it’s time we stopped saying “X looks like Rapunzel” and started treating it like the generic female character design it is.
They’re not trying to make everybody look like Rapunzel, they’re trying to limit the scope of how women are allowed to look, period.
this was actually the first fight i had with my ex…….giant red flag
Biggest pet peeve (if you can even call it that) ever! Like congratulations on having such a cushy life that you falsely believe politics don’t affect you, how nice it must be to have all your fundamental rights how convenient it must be to not give a shit about others
“…trolling used to be pretty funny and almost entirely harmless. Trolling, despite the modern usage, does not mean “the act of pissing somebody off and laughing about their anger.” It is “the act of pissing somebody off BASED ON SOMETHING COMPLETELY MEANINGLESS and laughing about their MISPLACED anger.” It isn’t considered trolling to leave a comment full of racial epithets and laugh when people “don’t get it.” It is trolling if you leave a comment insisting on the wrong information about something irrelevant – how many runes are on a Stargate, for example (everybody knows its 12) – and wait for the ONE guy that just can’t let the transgression pass. If you start a fake fight with Prof. Stargate, dragging him deeper and deeper until hopefully, finally, even he has to stop and think “wait a minute, this is ridiculous,” that is trolling. That’s the difference: No actual harm is caused, and even the victim can eventually get in on the joke. “Trolling” isn’t referring to hiding behind a fortification and trying to hurt people like the mythical creature. It’s referring to the style of fishing – you drag bait across the bottom hoping to get a rare bite. It’s not ‘bait’ if you’re earnestly spouting your misogynistic beliefs and somebody gets upset. There’s nothing funny about entirely justified anger.”—
could you maybe explain the drag queen thing i dont get it im sorry
drag queens often perform incredibly catty misogynistic stereotypes of womanhood and use a huge amount of misogynistic slurs and transmisogynistic slurs. it’s also incredibly common for drag circles to excuse or actively engage in racism, see Shirley Q Liquor, who wears actual blackface onstage (which RuPaul defended publicly and insisted wasn’t racist). and when RuPaul’s Drag Race was called out by the trans community for frequently using transmisogynistic slurs and then designing a game on the show where the goal was literally to “clock” trans women, the drag community rose to defend him, and he got away with a weak-ass fauxpology. additonally, drag is a performance, so the performers can shed womanhood (particularly the dangerous territory of DMAB womanhood) at will, and do not actually experience misogyny or transmisogyny in any real way. drag culture also often blurs the lines between drag and non-cis genders as a way of excusing transmisogyny, which perpetuates attitudes in queer communities that non-cis genders are performative and therefore to be judged on how “well” they are performed. this often makes cis queer spaces very uncomfortable for trans people; people will openly clock you and comment on your ability to “pass”. I have no problem with drag as a gender expression, or with DMAB people who express femininity, but I have a huge fucking problem with drag culture.

White people are more offended by the fact that they can’t say the N word or have dreadlocks than the fact that they were responsible for slavery , genocide , colonization and the destruction of entire civilizations
