That point in a piece of fanfiction where you can tell something embarrassing is about to happen so you start fucking around on tumblr because you’re a huge baby with a crippling overabudance of empathy.

I do this with every media I consume. I pause movies and have to walk around and prepare myself for second-hand embarrassment sometimes.

chriscappuccino said: I agree with you about the Book of Life. I roll my eyes at het love triangles, but it's not a harmful enough cliche to prevent me from wanting to see the movie for a billion other reasons. I'm conflicted over Urbance, though. Have you heard of it? It's about and created almost entirely by black people, which is amazing, but apparently it's got that "in a world where everyone's homo, one hetero couple must go AGAINST THE ODDS~~" premise and apparently the villains are all nonbinary people?

saccharinescorpion:

The Urbance plotline is a lot more harmful than a cliche het love triangle, and there are other differences as well, like Book of Life is a major feature film while Urbance is just getting off the ground via crowd funding… But I dunno, it was something I really wanted to support, and now I feel gross about it. I know this was a tangent, but I thought I’d vent/get your opinion on it.

i got this ask a few hours ago and i was mulling over how i was going to answer, seeing as it was a tangled, complex topic. and then i…you know. went to the kickstarter page

i’m not sure where everyone is getting the “in a world where everyone’s homo, one hetero couple must blah blah blah” angle from. Gaetan mentioned that this idea existed in the original trailer released a couple years ago—if the concept still exists, i am not seeing where. it’s possible that they excised the idea

here is the plot summary of urbance

"In a post-modern city torn by street violence, sex is prohibited because of a deadly genetical virus. Men and women have grown apart, hating each other until two young rebels, disowned by their own gangs, are leading the fight to live their love freely."

In the crumbling inner city, sex kills. The urban landscape is split in two — men on one side, women on the other— opposing each other. COEVO seems to be the only hope: a government medical treatment developed to cure every single boy and girl except that those wearables haven’t produced the expected results yet…

Born among this lost generation of frustrated gangs, Kenzell and Lesya live each day as their last, defying anyone who stands in the way of their union. Like modern avatars of Romeo and Juliet, they will have to choose between love or their kind, Passion VS Reason, Deadly Eves VS Neo Blasterz… In their flamboyant relationship lies the premises of a revolution against the authorities, the vicious Mediators and their separatist laws. Rebels can change the world…

so, perhaps a focus on a het couple, a romeo and juliet thing…not the most original thing in the world, but not exactly a “pure het vs vile gays” story. i also don’t know where the information about the villains being non-binary comes from

from the kickstarter page’s faq

note the timestamp. it seems like the people behind Urbance are set on keeping a tight relationship with fans and want to address any issues that may come up (there’s some other questions along those lines, including topics such as race and objectification of lesbian relationships)

here’s what i want to ask: how did this notion of “evil gay overlords” spread so quickly over tumblr over the course of a few days with seemingly almost no one going over to the project’s kickstarter page to fact-check? why were you all so quick to believe one post that lacked visual proof?

did the fact the cast is mostly black have anything to do with any of the above questions?

how many stories with all-white used the angle of “our forbidden straight love” with nary a hackle being raised?

and lastly, and most worryingly to me: will the distortion of facts regarding Urbance ‘s story hurt the chances of the project getting funded?

feminist speeches

i’ve heard in the longest time, and the result? the result from these men who claim that they would be all for feminism if it weren’t for all “the man hating”? 

image

do not be fooled for one fucking second

you can be as kind, calm, attractive and male inclusive as they demand for our voices to matter and the result is the same.

these people do not hate feminism because it “hates men”, these people have historically and to this day hated feminism because it’s purpose will result in the taking away of their power.

if you dont have me on facebook you are probably not missing out on any posts but the comment section is important too lmao

I went to the Renaissance faire dressed as a warrior.  I had a real sword with me, too.  I was standing (in character) next to a sword-fighting ring, where kids of all ages got the chance to pick up a sword and challenge the champion.  Some woman walks by, with her little girl.  The girl starts walking towards the ring, saying she wants to fight.  But the mom pulled her away hella sharply, and was like, “That’s for boys.”  You don’t want to be a BOY, do you?”    And the girl looked around and saw me.  I think she thought I was a boy; I had my hair in a ponytail, and was wearing a hood.  So she comes up to me and asks me, “Do you think girls can be fighters, too?”  And her mom looks like she’s silently gloating.  Like she thinks I’m going to say no.  So I take off my hood, untie my hair so that it flows freely, and kneel before her.  And I’m like, “Milady, anyone can be a fighter.”  I swear, the look on that mother’s face made my day.
