    I know I’m a bit late but I’ve been thinking a lot about the whole ‘Hannah neg’ situation and I’ve come to the decision that it’s an active display of both the false activism and entitlement of the new age of online fanbases.

    Let’s start with false or perform active activism.

    There are so many twitter threads dedicated to the promotion of female streamers and condemning people for being unsupportive of them yet look at the outcome of what happens when ‘their’ streamer interacts with a woman.

    ‘Hannah neg’ was trending with no valid criticism of the creator, the comments that were passed were majorly mocking her appearance or her personality.

    Ive talked about this kind of thing befire in this post about misogyny in gaming communities, and I think this section on the higher standards that female content creators are held to remains relevant

    We’ve internalised the stereotype that women are docile and sweet and soft, and that women who are loud and opinionated are unattractive. So when a female streamer gets mad or yells in a way that can’t be written off as cute, we see it as uptight and unattractive and stop watching them.

    Too many people are criticising Hannah for being loud and boisterous on her streams, and have criticised her in the past for standing up for herself against the sexism she receives from online communities. This attitude, expecting women to act a certain way or getting negative tag trending in order to insult- not criticise- them for being too loud, too angry, too toxic when they turn around and watch streamers like tommy, sapnap, quackity etc. All who have known to be very loud on stream. (I watch all these creators, it’s not an insult to them, it’s an observation of the disparity in treatments between male and female streamers with the same energy)

    There’s a difference between saying ‘I’m personally not a fan of her streams it’s a bit too high energy for me’ and directing blatant insults towards her under the guise of criticism. There is absolutely no excuse however to mock her appearance under /neg, the fact that this made up for a great percentage of the tweets indicates that it’s not a ‘I’m just not a fan of her’ situation and something deeply rooted in the online perception of women. Hannah said it herself, people hide being crit or neg tags in order to bully creators and feel in the right about it.

    ‘It’s not misogyny, dream plays with girls all the time and nobody trends neg’

    • dream fans made sylvee cry on stream because she was playing with dream and sapnap

    • niki has had to stop streams several times to talk about the sexism she faces from online gaming fanbases

    • Maia mxmtoon received such extensive hate after interacting with George on twitter that dream had to do a serious stream telling people to stop attacking women for interacting with them

    This is only a selection of the times where mcyt fans have attacked women for existing in the same world as their favourite white boys.

    Alright let’s talk about the entitlement of modern online fanbases

    This entire thing seems to be started by dream ‘fans’ being upset that they were ‘forced’ to watch a Hannah stream for their daily dose of dream content.

    So many ‘fans’ nowadays feel entitled to content from their favourite streamers and will act out if what they receive isnt up to their standard.

    There is a recurring attitude among streamer fanbases where the audience spreads overwhelming negativity over stream casts. You are not in the position to dictate who these streamers interact with and when. The begging in chats to add someone else to the call, the twitter posts asking why [streamer] wasn’t invited, the passing comments of It’d be better if x replaced y, the incessant whining of a streamer joining a different stream than the one you want to watch.

    As a fan, you are not entitled to demand these things of content creators. They are more than allowed to interact with each other, they are friends. Your streamer is not letting you down by talking to their friends. You are under no obligation to watch them talk to this friend if you don’t want to. The only reason you feel that you have to watch this content is because you feel that you are entitled to your streamer no matter how your subsequent actions affect the people in their community.

    You are not entitled to spread hate, you are entitled to your own opinion and yes they can be negative, but you are not entitled to be a dick because of that

    So let’s get a couple things clear

    1) nobody is forcing you to watch a stream, ever

    2) your favourite streamer interacting with another streamer is not grounds for hate or negativity

    3) you are not in control of who your favourite content creator streams with. If there is another stream you would rather watch, watch it.

    The Dream SMP community has a huge problem with the way it treats female streamers, and this whole call out culture has resulted in a sense of entitlement to spread hatred and insults about creature under the guise of criticism

    I guess I’m bitter, because I go into the tags for THG and see all these people having long chain discussions about their views and opinions, and see fic and art, but it’s all for something I dislike/don’t agree with. Meanwhile I post something and immediately get jumped. I have literally no chance of having a drawn out discussion with anyone, let alone put out a huge think piece or see art or fic I haven’t created myself. So yeah, I am bitter.

    @elitestan No one has ever said racism and islamophobia don’t exist or aren’t bad. Not one of us, at least. Of course there’s a lot of assholes out there but that is not our fault. They’re enemies to us as much as they are to you. I’m from Germany so I know what I’m talking about. I wish there wouldn’t, but there’s a lot of racists here. It’s a fact I wish I could change with a snap of my fingers, but I can’t. All I can do is fight for basic human rights for everyone with the little power I have with my voice and that’s what I do.

    But you can’t downgrade a social problem like homophobia by saying “this or that social problem is worse”. Both racism and homophobia are horrendous things that sadly still happen to this day. Saying one is worse than the other completely defeats the purpose of bringing attention to them.

    And if you want to throw a spotlight on racism and islamophobia in particular you’re free to do so and I even encourage you to. Because it’s very much a severe problem the world is still dealing with. But maybe start by reblogging informative posts, or support organisations that fight against those horrible things instead of running around and blaming specific people on the internet for being racist for literally no reason.

    WE MUST BRING OUR OWN                                                                                       LIGHT TO THE DARKNESS.

    NOXTMS is an appless and au group set in a modern golden trio era. seven years have passed since the battle of hogwarts that saw not only the death of harry potter, but the defeat of lord voldemort at the hands of the surviving dumbledore’s army. seven years, where individuals grieved, grew, and moved on - their peace tentative in the way it always is and ruined when the rumors of bellatrix lestrange & her associates attempting another resurrection proved to be correct. the dark lord’s last & BEST lieutenant succeeded in returning him to life - though the return of harry potter & regulus black proved an unintended side effect. it has become obvious that nothing, not even peace, lasts. everything ends, though you cannot step into the same stream twice. the new threat has arrived, and it’s up to you to decide whether this time, all will be well.

                                                                    NO ONE ELSE IS GOING                                              TO DO IT FOR US.

    Some more Constantine sketches I conjured up!! Along with Raven. I love the dynamic of them being both apart of dark magic/dealing with demons and that Constantine takes Raven in to be her mentor!! And since her dad (Trigon) is literally awful she can have a better father figure in her life:)

    A Way Chapter 15 What of Frank?

    AO3

    He comes to, laying across the bed. Sore all over, it takes him awhile to recall what happened. “Fraser! The bloody bastard took Bree and …”

    He can’t admit, even to himself, that the Scottish bloke had bested him. Raising, he walks into the hotels small bathroom and exams himself in the mirror. A black eye, busted lip, several bruises on his chest and stomach. “They will pay, both of them.”

    He thinks of ringing the police but then he would have to admit to being bested by the man who was f*cking his wife. That wouldn’t do. He has a better idea. “Bree, my daughter by rights. I will fully take Bree from them. No way am I letting her whoring mum raise her. Yes, that is the ticket.”

    Checking out, the lady at the desk simply shakes her head at him. What had they told her. It matters not. When Bree is fully in his custody, maybe Fraser will return to wherever he came from and Claire will come back to him. He will take her back, simply to punish her. Yes, this will work fine.

    He heads home, praying they are there. That will be fun. He is sorely disappointed to find it empty. No matter, after he sees a lawyer, his daughter will be home. And will not be taken from him again. After a shower, he treats his wounds. Tomorrow morning, he will see a lawyer. For now he will sleep.

    He sleeps much later than he intended so he will leave the lawyer for the next day. When he wakes the next morning, it is to a knock on the door. Grabbing a robe, he answers it.

    “Mr. Frank Randall?”

    “Yes.”

    “Sorry sir.” He is handed a packet of papers.

    “What is this?”

    “Just deliver them.” He shrugs and walks away. Frank carries the papers in.

    He takes a seat in his favorite chair and starts to read. He is soon cursing. She is filing divorce papers on him. Claiming that James Fraser is Bree’s true father, requiring full custody of Bree with visitation for him.

    “Visitation, my arse! That is my daughter.” He quickly dresses and heads out to find a lawyer.

    L’insostenibile leggerezza del fandom

    Una sorta di follow-up alle mie considerazioni su Post+ di qualche giorno fa.

    Ricapitolando:

    Tumblr sta introducendo in beta la funzionalità Post+ con la possibilità di pubblicare contenuti a pagamento (in abbonamento). Per intenderci: è in beta, ed è una funzionalità opzionale, nessuno sta obbligando nessuno a far pagare i propri contenuti e c’è sempre la possibilità di mantenere parte dei contenuti pubblici.

    Questa decisione segue, con dovuto ritardo, un trend in atto da anni e che si sta intensificando: dare a chiunque la possibilità di fare qualche soldo online (non mi dilungo, ho approfondito un po’ le radici di questo trend nel mio post)

    A quanto pare (date un’occhiata al tag “post+ discourse” o “post+ protest”) pare esserci una porzione rilevante di utenti (o quantomeno una minoranza molto chiassosa) che vede questa funzionalità come una sorta di attentato alle proprie libertà. Specificatamente sono le persone che scrivono fanfiction e disegnano fanart ad essere le più vocali. “Se ci facciamo pagare, rischiamo una azione legale da parte dei detentori del copyright”, dicono.

    Pur essendo a tutti gli effetti un nerd, e quindi potenzialmente associabile a molteplici fandom, non perdo tuttavia di vista come funziona il mondo.

    Il mondo funziona che se io faccio un disegno dell’Uomo Ragno (e ne ho effettivamente fatti parecchi nella mia vita) e mi faccio pagare per suddetto disegno, sto commettendo un reato.

    Ora, non voglio aprire un capitolo sulla legittimità del copyright e sulla forza ed estensione delle misure per proteggerlo, però da persona “creativa” (che disegna e scrive) mi sembra più che legittimo proteggere creazioni come personaggi di fantasia, come possono essere i personaggi Marvel, ad esempio.

    Se non siete Stan Lee, non avete diritto a guadagnare soldi su cose che ha fatto Stan Lee.

    Se siete qualcuno che si diverte a scrivere fanfiction o disegnare fanart su Tumblr, potete farlo in due modi: gratis o illegalmente.

    Per quanto fanfiction e fanart possano essere una ottima “palestra” creativa, state usando personaggi e storie altrui: ammettere i propri limiti creativi e non farsi pagare mi sembra il minimo.

    Conto sul fatto che chi sta facendo questa levata di scudi — arrivando addirittura a proporre uno “sciopero di Tumblr” per il 6 di Agosto, LOL — sia semplicemente molto giovane e/o con la testa troppo ficcata su per il culo per capire come funziona il mondo.

    Per tutti gli altri che magari sanno stare al mondo e fare qualcosa di più che andare a prestito da materiale altrui, spero che Tumblr possa diventare una piattaforma su cui tirare su qualche soldo.

    Il grosso, grosso problema per Tumblr — di nuovo, detto da uno che è qui dal 2007 — è che ha perso tante persone talentuose che sono finite su altre piattaforme, ora sono rimasti solo quelli che fanno fanfiction e fanart, a quanto pare.

    P.S. Che poi se proprio volete farvi pagare basta mettere un link a PayPal, OnlyFans, ko-fi o salcazzo, prendersela con Tumblr dimostra solo che davvero non sapete stare al mondo.
