you know what annoys me a whole lot about tumblr
is that it glorifies and promotes this antisocial cynical attitude in young teenagers where refusing to relate or communicate with people is a POSITIVE thing
that staying at home on the internet constantly, isolating yourself completely and refusing to talk to people because they ‘dont understand you’ or your fandoms, because you’re a special snowflakye tumblr user who knows big words like ‘gender binary.’
newsflash that isnt healthy and you’re setting yourself up for a huge shock when you get to the real world and have to realise that you actually have to communicate well with people to get through university and jobs and a career, not bitch about how your class mates dont understand supernatural slash on tumblr or whatever
THIS IS WHAT YOU ARE REALLY SAYING:“I am an angry privileged child who is aroused by the idea of two men together but don’t really care if they are openly depicted as gay or if their pairing contributes to actual gay representation on TV, because I am first and foremost concerned with what entertains and arouses me.
Thus I am angry that American television producers adapted the public domain figure of Sherlock Holmes and utterly failed to take my personal sexual tastes into consideration.
So I say that Elementary is homophobic.
Because I am a privileged child, I only look at the cultural influence of a show in a larger social context if it takes away or threatens my personal fetishes.
I do not care that they chose to cast a woman in a lead role.
I do not care that they chose to cast a woman of colour in a lead role.
I do not care that they chose to cast a woman of colour in the role of a person who is completely and utterly undefined by her race.
I do not care that they chose to cast a woman in a lead role opposite a man in a partnership that does not and will never (according to the producers) involve a romantic relationship.
I do not care about all of these things because I am not aroused by nor fetishize heterosexual pairings, asexual pairings, women, Asians, or people of colour in general.
Instead, I call Elementary homophobic because it fails to provide an ostensibly straight white male pairing for me to project homosexual behaviour onto.
And I do not worry about Sherlock’s lack of homosexual representation because it feeds my fetishes - because I ultimately only care about what gets me off, and if I can whine about not having that while simultaneously connecting myself to a larger social dilemma about which I know little in a way that might possibly make me look smart and important? When I am really just the opposite? Well why the fuck not?”
Seriously. I just need to go on a mini-rant about how freaking amazing Hilary Duff is. She just, everything that could possibly be right about her, is, I swear. She had one of THE best original Disney shows ever. I’m pretty sure Lizzie McGuire was my childhood. She put out CDs, the whole shebang. (You know you know every word to Why Not, and that you at one point owned the Metamorphosis CD, so don’t even lie.) And when she was a teenager, what was the worst thing she did? What, that little tiff with Lindsay Lohan? About Aaron Carter or whatever? You didn’t see her in sex scandals, and out partying and going out of control. Then she went on and did a bunch of movies that were freaking amazing, like A Cinderella Story and Cheaper by the Dozen. She had a few weight issues along the way for like, half a day (or am I thinking of Lohan?), but freaking look at her now. She’s been married for freaking two years, and just had her first kid, not at 16, but at freaking 24. Now she’s into freakin’ animal rights, and protects the right of children and is all philanthropic and crap. This chick is such a bamf, is the one that teenage girls should look up to now, not some Snooki or whoever the crap else people are idolizing. Show some respect, bro. Show some respect. She’s not just a fitspiration, or a thinspiration, she is one of the biggest freaking inspirations of my generation.
