"My family is suffocating me with pressure to be a perfect student and daughter." (r.i.d)
people always ask me why i’m going into teaching instead of being a writer.
the number of notes on this in less than 24 hours and the number of people who said “same” or “exactly” or “about me” - that’s why. there is so much fundamentally wrong with our system. The only way to change it is from within.
A crash course on non-disney films and studios (sequels not included; list is not exhaustive)
This should be standard knowledge for movielovers
It is a pet peeve of mine when people refer to any animated film as Disney. And by “pet peeve” I mean it makes me want to punch them in the face.
This is how kids reacted when they were shown same-sex marriage proposal videos. Kids these days.
"how will we explain homosexuality to our children" I think maybe they should explain it to you
Anonymousjesus. fucking. christ. you people need to chill the fuck out. all you people got pulled out of that interview was delusional negativity. Like the whole sweater thing. a- she saw it and said cool! but they didn't have her size. b- she probably doesnt ship the characters of HER OWN TV SHOW as much as to look online just to support a non canon ship. she thought the idea was cool and therefor shared it with jen. god the fact people want to boycott the show because they're not getting what they want
oh Nonnie, it must be so terrible to be illiterate. bravo on using Siri to send me this screed. technology is a wonderful thing.
because you can’t read, you may have been told that the response to the interview was either delusional or negative, but you were unable to check it yourself. hopefully someone can read my post to you, and you can learn that: some people were across-the-board thrilled; some people liked some aspects and were disappointed in others; some saw Lana’s fundamental misunderstanding of the issues and shoehorning in of a denial and were frustrated. no delusion here, just a variety of responses to the words that came out of her mouth.
yes, i’m quite certain Lana doesn’t ship anything. Jen might based on the degree of her CS posting, but it’s hard to say. however, regardless, Lana did mention SwanQueen in the interview in relation to the sweater, which, again, you would know if you could read.
finally, people are not discussing a boycott because they’re not getting what they want. they’re discussing a boycott because it is a way to raise the issue of equal representation, or because of the godawful misogynist shit they ARE giving, or becuase they have pretty much flat out lied for years to keep us watching and avoid being called out for heterosexism. trying to change the show by boycott is folly. trying to change the conversation is entirely feasible.
best of luck in deciperhing this message.
I lost it at “which, again, you would know if you could read” and “best of luck in deciphering this message” LOL *slow claps* Awesome job!
I am SOO fucking proud of SWEN. Thank you to the unsung heroes of today; those who spent their time making SQ sweater edits & those who began the twitter outpour. Without yall, RED Valentino, would have not noticed us.
Many voiced the AfterEllen poll would be “worthless”, but it started a chain of events that lead to today. All of those who spent hours on that poll.. paid off.
It’s amazing how just a few days ago, many of us were disappointed & angry over the “CS tea” incident. I have yet to hear CSers working together to get that $19 tea into the hands of JMo & Colin. But we, with our enthusiasm for SQ & JMo/Lana, worked together to get that $395 sweater for both our babies.
We have been told SQ is not part of their vision. But you know what? Fuck that. We will keep shipping knowing that. We are showing them how much of an amazing & influential fandom they are letting out on the cold. Others have started to see that, AfterEllen, StarryMag, GeeksOut & even a high end clothing brand. Let’s keep building this SQ coalition; outreaching & interacting with possible allies on twitter. :)
P.S. Give some love to @GeeksOUT for giving some love to @SQMovement, @helebette & @squeeandsnark.
I sometimes find myself laughing because I think about how Jeff Davis destroyed Teen Wolf all because he didn’t want to give us:
- Patched up plotholes
- Actual development for the characters
- The ages and first names of characters
- Female characters that existed for their own being, not for the development of a male character
- Characters of color that weren’t shoved into the background and/or killed off
- Prominent queer characters and couples
- and Sterek
Half of an ed sheeran concert is incredible music and the other half is him tripping over cords and amps
I have no idea what you’re talking about.
This is one of my favourite photoshoots I’ve seen in my entire life.
