raise your hand if you’ve ever been disgusted by your own fandom…
if you don’t raise your hand, chances are you’re the one your fandom is disgusted with
"i want a cartoon created by a woman!"
"I want a story with a sizable cast of great women!"
"I want a show with fat representation!"
"i want a story with POC representation!"
"i want a show-"
*nudges everyone softly*
"i want a show with great music!"
"i want a show that gives me feels every episode!"
"i want a show that has a positive outlook!"
"i want a show with a cast that have diverse personalities!"
I have never read a John Green novel.
But I would care a lot more about critiques of him if any of the people I’ve seen shitting on him had actually read a John Green novel either.
Or pretty much anything that has ever come out of his mouth.
It’s really disgusting that people accuse John Green, a writer with clinical depression and anxiety to the point of it being very disabling at different times of his life, as someone who might romanticize and encourage teen suicide.
As an aside, I love his self awareness about his own writing. That shit is hard to do.
On the existence of his crash course videos alone, which provide free, accessible, consistent, intersectional, and quality higher level education to anyone with an internet connection (which is a fucking revolutionary concept and execution and should not be treated lightly) I am forever a fan of this man.
see he already knows he’s not the best writer, i think everyone can shut up for a bit and stop criticising his writing, and instead actually look at this man and see what he has done for real life people. He and his brother have created an entire fanbase of thousands of people where we all interact, share knowledge, help each other with large to tiny problems. John educates via youtube and tumblr and other various platforms on all sorts of issues in the world, from environment to politics to the economy and health care and even sometimes random facts about animals. Yes, his books are not the most brilliant thing to ever exist in the whole entire world, no book is, but that doesn’t mean we should keep on criticising and attacking him! He is so much more than a writer, he’s done so much for people, not just teenagers because I am aware that there are some older people within the Nerdfighter community, he and his brother have allowed us to connect more with people around the world. Seriously. dftba.
I have tons of homework but funimation said I should be watching
Percy Jackson and the Olympians
Steven Moffat on writing Lynda Day from Press Gang:
"Because I’ve never been a 17 year old girl, it’s rather interesting to think like one, or rather to force yourself to consider the world from that perspective. And it actually started to make me angry. I’d never really thought about it before, but you know, when I’d consider the world from the viewpoint of this dynamic, highly intelligent, highly talented 17 year old girl, and think what’s going to happen to her, think about how much harder it’s going to be for her than it would be if she’s been a boy, it made me SO angry.”
what a sexist!!! why didn’t they put that on the list?!!
cause it doesn’t fit in their small mind.
does this quote cancel out other quotes though? off the top of my head i know he joked about nancy being a ‘slut’ on the DVD commentary for ‘the doctor dances’ — so there’s one shitty sexist joke vs one good quote, do they cancel each other out?
i haven’t read the post in question in your screencap but since it calls itself a list of sexist things moffat has said, of course they’re not including things that moffat said that aren’t sexist, just like i wouldn’t expect it to include sexist things other people have said. this post is not pretending to be a compendium of every quote moffat has ever said. it’s cool that he said this one thing about a show like 20 years ago or whatever, but that doesn’t change the shitty things he HAS said, nor does it necessarily change what people feel about his writing. someone can say something good one day and then something shitty the next day, i’m not necessarily obligated to overlook the shitty thing they did because they did something nice the day before.
I mean even broken clock is right twice a day.
Don’t understand why Mark Gatiss, Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman, Matt Smith, Peter Capaldi, (and so on) would want to work with a ‘real’ sexist,as that is clearly known for years.
That commentary was one bad joke vs tons of good quotes… try to notice the difference between real hate against women and someone who makes a bad/wrong joke now and then. But when blind hate comes to the scene, you can’t see clearly, I understand that, my mistake.
Disregarding that “these actors worked with this famous writer” proves absolutely nothing at all, lmao @ listing a bunch of dudes as proof another dude can’t possibly sexist. I always look to Martin “Rape Joke” Freeman and Matt “Would a female Doctor have a baby LOL” Smith whenever I make any decisions about what I do or do not find offensive as a woman.
Most people don’t think Steven Moffat runs around in his personal life wildly oppressing women at every possible chance like an absurd Medieval caricature. That doesn’t change his habit of saying shitty sexist things or writing sexist content. This is a meaningless argument you are using. He does not have to say sexist stuff 100% of the time all the time every day to still have a history of saying and writing sexist things.
It is not “one bad joke vs tons of good quotes”. It is just a lot of quotes. Obviously there are a lot of sexist quotes, enough to make an entire damn post. Whether someone thinks the good outweighs the bad is up to them, but telling other people they’re wrong because you unearthed one old quote where he isn’t being a dick does nothing to respond to the many many times he has been a dick.
So my friend came into school one day wearing a dress that had straps and the vice principal came up to her and said “You need to either change or cover your shoulders up because it’ll distract the boys” to which she replied “Well I find boys faces distracting, do they have to cover them up?” and the vice principal said “Maybe you should focus in class more.”
If that doesn’t tell you that things are messed up, then I don’t know what does.
ok but literally how
the anti vaccination movement basically consists of random people with no knowledge of medicine going “I can medicine better than doctors” and it would be hilarious if it wasn’t literally killing people
you dont need vaccines, I havent had any and Im still doing great
wow, what a compelling argument. you’ve got me
in other news, i am still alive therefore death must be a myth
