I think I found the most horrifying website by just searching owl jokes.
"but one of them is actually queer and we still don’t know if the other girl is!"
does that really excuse the main plot
this is fucking disgusting lmao
lAUNCH THIS FILM INTO THE SUN
i’M SO HAPPY YOU LIKE IT
Oh man, I’m really surprised so many people haven’t heard about this?
You can read more about it here (warning, pretty graphic details of sexual assault), but basically he has been accused of raping a 17 year old boy back in the 90s. If these allegations prove to be true, he’s a scummy, scummy dirtbag asshole piece of trash that deserves to be locked up.
It’s just… wow, I expected Tumblr to be ALL over this. This is a community that brings light to a lot of horrible things and abuses of power. Raping an underage teen is, uh, kind of in the category. When I first read the story, I expected it to be smeared all over this site, but like I’ve said, I’ve only seen TWO posts.
Is it because Bryan Singer is a well loved director? Because people are excited for the new X-Men movie? I’m confused. Are people uncomfortable talking about it because they fear wanting to see an anticipated film will be equated with condoning child abuse?
We’ll have to see how this all plays out, but again, I’m surprised that I haven’t heard a PEEP about this on Tumblr.
(FYI, The Usual Suspects is one of my favourite films. I want to watch the new X-Men movie because hundreds of people have poured love and effort into it, not just one (potential) scumbag. This sort of discussion is a very difficult and uncomfortable one to have, but it’s worth having. )
PS: Whatever the truth may be, I am disgusted by all of the victim blaming I’ve seen. Viciously attacking the character of someone speaking out about abuse only makes others feel uncomfortable to do so. I don’t fucking care if you want to watch X-Men without feeling guilty, DON’T VICTIM BLAME.
it IS weird considering how everyone was ready to boycott ender’s game for scott card’s homophobiaChrist, I had forgotten about that. Good point!
margot verger was a lesbian and was muscular in the books and as its stereotypical now that “all lesbians are muscular” i think bryans trying to overcome that, by now having margot as a fragile-looking,
She can be muscular and still fragile. She can be butch and still feel like a broken little bird you desperately want to protect
THE WAY A PERSON LOOKS IN NO WAY defines emotional strenght or weakness.
For me the fact that Margot looked like a really strong person that could knock out Barney and still be this girl that has being abused and tormented by her brother was so important.
but also strong character kinda girl just to show not ALL lesbians are masculine
YEAH BUT SOME ARE. What is that so bad?
Also can we stop pretending that the construction of this “masculine but sexy” lesbian is not a male fantasy.
and just because they aren’t masculine doesn’t mean they’re a weak character (that is if she is still lesbian in the show) and yeah i also think shes going to be one of the five thats involved in the sex scene that bryan said was coming up in episode 10. heck yeah
WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK
this is infinitely worse then it was yesterday holy shit
disparition said that they were trying to make the music at the end of condos sound like a “romantic moment in some cheesy 80’s movie” BYE
everyone has been so nice about it i’m just
om g i wanna hug everyone
I am not cool with smashsurvey’s “survey” or whatever. I am not cool with their wishy-washy response to things and I am not cool with their ignoring of the neo-nazis and racist trolls mucking about like dirty, smelly white two-year-olds in the safe space tags.
How are you going to translate actual death threats and harassment towards people of color to a “yes or no” survey about “do you feel this fandom is racist?” Seriously, how does that help? How is that effective in anyway? It is beyond how people “feel” about the fandom. We’ve moved on from how white people feel about it, because actual POC have been bullied out of the fandom and actual POC feel unsafe in the fandom due to intense amount of racism and defending of said racism.
I feel like this survey was an ineffectual and unreliable flailing about that does nothing to actually make this fandom a safer space. Additionally, I and two other people of color contacted them (as they asked!) about our experiences in the fandom and they have not responded at all, they have not published or discussed the issues we e-mailed them about, they have done nothing to indicate they received our emails and care about our struggles.
Why is some cruddy yes/no survey more important than the struggles of people of color, two of which who contacted them have been harassed out of the fandom because of racism!?
And there are certain “Good White People” in this fandom who have been stinky and crappy too, and they don’t even realize it. I know who they are. They’re part of the “SJW” crew too. They’ve reblogged things uncritically, they’ve equated their issues with the struggles of POC and have spoken for and over POC. If you’re thinking it might be you, it probably is.
I don’t like this survey. I appreciate the intent and effort but I don’t like how wishy-washy the response was and I don’t like how it ignored certain issues within the fandom.
White people need to stop acting like there’s room for questioning and redemption and start acknowledging that this fandom is collective trash and will continue to be so until the majority of white people get off their lazy and complicit arses and do something about it.
I AM SO HAPPY PEOPLE SEEM TO LIKE IT
