i don’t even know what to say to this

While implying that things are better when people don’t think critically about what they read is clearly the mark of a free and enlightened society.

Critical thinking is bad and might be fascist. I could have sworn I saw that one on Fox News. 

what is happening today?

it is apparently time for comics writers to rally against their fans again

Nice use of scare quotes there, ‘Brubaker’.

(slow, sarcastic clapping) No, no. The GOVERNMENT telling writers what they are allowed to write, often under the threat of imprisonment, torture, or death, is how that ‘worked.’ The READERSHIP saying ‘we do not like what you’ve written, and we are not interested in paying for it or anything else you’ve written, and we are encouraging your current employer to replace you with someone who can do the job better, because we consume their product, you goddamn HACK’ is how CAPITALISM works. I know it’s confusing, but they’re a little different.
And is he really doing this? Are we really comparing the threat placed on legitimate journalists and authors under a violent dictatorship or regime to the fan lead efforts to get a 3rd rate, misogynistic HACK removed from a flagship title? A flagship comic book title whose circulation numbers that he has driven into the ground? That’s… What we’re doing here.
Gotta say. I’m a little ‘outraged’ by his comparison.

It’s amazing to me how I see this argument over and over and over again, specifically when it comes to media representation/narrative criticism—not just from creators but from consumers who don’t want to be bothered. Because what it reveals is that these people think the discomfort they experience when confronted with these arguments is literally equivalent to institutional violence.

i feel so restrained when i receive stupid and/or assholic anon messages, but instead of replying with “YOU’RE AN IDIOT”, i just delete them like a mature adult.

you know what i always say;

Luv how all the reblogs on this are like, “OMG Sterek!” when the “pattern” in question actually seems to be “disturbing displays of unnecessary violence”. Yes, it’s so romantic when adult werewolf Derek knocks 16-year-old human Stiles’ head against the steering wheel of his car, or threatens him physically, or attacks his friends, or when Stiles punches Derek in the face and then almost has to cut off his arm…??

Like, I have read some great Sterek fanfic and I have no problem with people shipping them, but the pattern in these GIFs is not “romance”.

thanks, bryan fuller, for making me laugh inappropriately all the way through your show about a viciously murderous cannibal.

One day, John may just punch her.

I know I would if someone continually called my best friend “freak”

I really hope the 10,000 reblogs on this are all variants of ‘Casual misogyny and violence against women, way to stay classy, Sherlock fandom!’

…but i’m kind of afraid to check.

eta: “i would pay to see him punch her” WELL THAT TOOK EXACTLY 2 SECONDS, ughhhhhh why did i look.

URGH
