Do YOU get offended when people dogpile you for something you "didn't do?" Do YOU hate being bullied, even when others insist you deserve it and the mistake you made was genuinely hurtful?
Then you just might be... a Human Person, with Feelings. 💕✌️💅
Alright so I just want briefly explain one issue with my MiA fics and why some people may question why I am so uncomfortable and keep mentioning not wanting to share my writing that features a gay pairing.
“People only pay attention to badly written short gay fics” was a tag on a Bon post, at which point I decided to unfollow the tags.
I am the only writer of such fics, though I will say they are not badly written nor do they get massive amounts of attention. There was no other way to take that. So if my tags and behaviour have left you confused because the Japanese fanbase is way deep into GueBo, an English fan said that.
That is where my discomfort lies beyond some other issues and social medias. That is why I say write Bon het if you feel he is het or just want to ship him with a woman. Nothing wrong with that. No need to hate on gay pairings or come at me, though.
Pretty much it. I will support a lot of MiA content, but have been uncomfortable since I saw it in Feb-March. I now keep away from all OCs in MiA due to this as I have no idea if their creators share the same ugly sentiment. I’d hope not, but I never expected to see THAT out of all possible tags.
It continues to cost $0 to be nice. :(
i know it’s easier for kids like me to want to be activists or whatever but especially when interacting with a good piece of media we cannot approach it if not predisposed to understand the nuance of the work and its characters. i see some takes in this site that are simply not correct not because they are wrong necessarily but because they are using the analysis of the media as a callout post for the media or a specific character, and i do understand where it’s coming from, especially when i enter these people’s profiles and see that they are fifteen, in which case it makes a lot more sense, but some of the things i’ve seen not only as callout posts to fiction but the things the fictional x is being accounted for, are truly nonsensical. i know it’s easier to agree with every hot take you see from your mutuals because you don’t want them to think you’re some iroh apologist or a bigot or something, but when you’re simplifying what reads as a well-written and nuanced piece of writing with layers and layers and layers worth analyzing, you are only being counterproductive to both the analysis and the activism you’re trying to do. i think it’s easy to forget the reason people enjoy media is not because its characters and narrative are pure, but complex. if you are fifteen, you might not have thoughtfully consumed enough media to understand this fully, but as a sixteen year old is disheartening seeing such reductive and simplistic takes from people my age, that at the same time for how nonsensical its standards are become some flavour of fantastic as well, when i myself actually try to engage critically with media and do an analysis as vast and objective as i can and not get nearly as much as hype. i promise you, looking at fiction thru actual analytic lens does not make you a bad person.
I just don't support movements that have widespread harassment. And you can say all you want that, well, you're not like that, and you can say that, well, it's justified this time, and you can bemoan your lack of mind control. But at the end of the day, even if your criticism is a 5 star worthy meal, you're putting it on the same table as a bunch of rotten tomatoes. And that's just going to make everything taste worse.
me: i might go lay down in a minute. i sleepy. @maskeraide: all you’ve done is shit post today. me: as......opposed.......to any other day???????
wild that we’re seeing the shift of people moving from twitter to tumblr because now twitter is the toxic/you’ll get attacked under the guise of being “educated” reasons when the shift of people moving to twitter for those reasons happened a few years ago
and now i just see posts and posts letting twitter people know that no one here cares about all that and i’m like wow how the times have changed
keep hearing "the artist cant color match the skin exactly with water color" or "watercolor is just lighter you guys are mean :(!" when it comes to the latest person getting called out over whitewashing and all
and i think 'hm, ok, maybe there was a misunderstanding, maybe the artist just couldnt get the shade ri-"
and every. fucking. time. i'll look and see the artist using fucking peach to shade the whitest skin ive ever fucking seen, for a poc. cant make this shit up
dont get me wrong, different mediums may struggle with representing all skin colors
but u have to fucking try
and if your on a medium that very much lets u have that full range of color (ahem digital) then theres no excuse. period
This user is half-Romani and does NOT support harassing people over fanworks.
i specifically don't follow a lot of people and tags on book twitter because seeing too much discourse just made me extremely upset all the time but also i'm seeing people talk about some recent issue without saying what exactly happened and the curiosity is KILLING me. someone please explain what happened on book twitter
RP blog rules be like
Y'all remember that adorable minotaur discovering chalk post I reblogged?
The creator, @theslowesthnery, is getting harassed SO BAD and I'm crying a little. They're getting accused of making child pornography and being blamed for other people's trauma and there's a huge smear campaign with people being encouraged to make things worse. I imagine it must be incredibly exhausting and traumatizing.
The 'reason' is that they both draw characters as adorable children, and, in separate art, draw the characters in romantic relationships. Like, one image is the Minotaur's mommy holding him as a toddler. Another has the Minotaur and Theseus, as adults, in a humorous but romantic situation.
I am incredibly upset. Those little minotaur drawings made me SO HAPPY. I can imagine seeing them cross my dash 5 years from now and happily reblogging, talking about how I still love them.
I hope Hnery has a friend they can get help from. Someone who can be trusted to go through their messages and notifications and delete/block all the harrassment until this dies down. Someone who can support them, because even one negative comment can have lingering effects. This is going to take so long to work through!
I literally just deleted your entire response to save both you from the embarrassment and me from the uncomfortable amount of over sharing exhibited here and like, what the frick is this?
Why the fuck did you select save some of my tags? Why the fuck did you reblog me twice? Couldn’t you just list out all of those other able-bodied whiny autistic assholes you wanted to come try and tip my 400 pound power chair like a cow within your first reblog?
I crossed your actual mental breakdown out before I screencaped it because I have no interest in the detailed descriptor you just gave me about your Dads Asshole Emotionally Abusing You, I’m not sorry.
Talk to your school counselor if it’s that’s serious .
I did notice that the word “retard” is never okay but you can still use the word “narc” as an insult.
See, this is why I actually started to like Brandon Rogers because at least in his videos his characters say what they mean and are out dated about it because they don’t care and it’s all campy as fuck, as apposed to someone like, pretending that they do care and then going out of their way to make alternative accounts just to spew every other alternative mental health descriptor more violent than “retarded” that they can use to insult people just on the basis of using anything other than “retard” while practicing performative wokeness under the sun ...
Oh, and .....
You forgot to tag Hatsine Miku ...
Thanks for creating a new email to make a new account just to make a list of all the new 13 year olds that need counseling that I’m gonna have to block now https://cripticwithabulletjournal.tumblr.com/
I’ll get right on that!
Another excellent example provided of why I hate Abled-Bodied Mentally Ill People.
Keep away from betajunk and their secondary account :/
They’re also referring to the post about the Billy Phone Calls audio.
Like dude, calm your tits.
“I don’t know how people can simultaneously talk about prison abolition and restoring the idea of forgiveness to literal criminal justice and at the same time turn the entire social world into a kangaroo court system. Like I wrote once, we can’t simultaneously be a movement based on rehabilitation and restorative justice and a viciously judgmental moral aristocracy. You know who thinks everybody’s guilty until proven innocent? Cops. You know who thinks people don’t deserve the right to defend themselves? Cops. You know who says those who defend basic fairness and and due process are as bad as criminals themselves? Cops.”
How NOT to make a drama channel on YouTube:
1. Mention thier mental illness or race as if it somehow means something.
2. Give a shoutout to k*wi farms and pretend as if they're some “internet drama gods” for giving you sources on drama, rather than looking for the sources yourself like.... pretty much everyone else.
3. Pretend as if the suicides caused by Kiwi Farms due to them STALKING someone’s house and harassing people at thier workplace never existed.
4. Make sure to have this “snarky” or “tired” voice and to mention the word “CRINGE!” as much as humanly possible.
5. Innocent people who have the same labels as said “lolcow” get attacked because you prioritized how “cringe” said awful person’s personal interests, mental background, or ethnicity are rather than actually holding that person accountable for thier actions.
The business decisions made regarding Dr. Seuss, Potato Head, and the such have absolutely *nothing* to do with cancel culture!
The term 'cancel culture' was coined to refer to the culture of bullying, ostracism, and deplatforming people - both celebrities and the average Joe. For those of us who oppose bullying and abuse, I resent seeing the term 'cancel culture' get watered down like this!
