my favorite thing is reading fan fiction but my least favorite thing is trying to find fan fiction to read
“If you really believe that representation doesn’t matter, then why the fuck are you threatened by it? If not seeing yourself depicted in stories has no negative psychological impact - if the breakdown of who we see on screen has no bearing on wider social issues - then what would it matter if nine stories out of ten were suddenly all about queer brown women? No big, right? It wouldn’t change anything important; just a few superficial details. Because YOU can identify with ANYONE.
So I guess the problem is that you just don’t want to. Because deep down, you think it’ll make stories worse. And why is that? Oh, yeah: because it means they wouldn’t all be about YOU.”
lavender brown gets more hate for how she handles unrequited romantic feelings than snape does and i find that incredibly disturbing
Kevin Feige’s response when asked if Marvel is open to a Black Panther movie or a movie with a female lead.
Excuses. “Matter of when”, “matter of juggling franchises”. But it’s so easy to throw up Ant Man and Guardians of the Galaxy? One movie that nobody wanted and another movie that appears to have no connection at all to the current MCU? But as long as there are white male leads, you can make all the plans you want. Give me a break.
When will it ever be the precise, correct time for a blockbuster superhero movie with a black lead? Or a female lead? Or god forbid a woman of color? When?
Now. The answer is now. The time is now. Get the fuck off your high horse, Kevin Feige, and start acknowledging us as people.
I know we all have our differences but long story short we all support each other and care for each other in the end. Well The Legend of Korra fandom is not being treated fairly WHAT SO EVER. I have a proposal. You don’t HAVE TO do as i’m about to ask but it would be of up-most help for us in the fandom.
Nickelodeon is not treating our fandom with any decency, or respect. They are PULLING THE SECOND HALF OF BOOK THREE at least temporarily, not enough details have come out yet and wont until comic con but still, they’re being pulled.
We have just ONE request:
- If you are home on Friday Night, July 25th, 2014 At 8pm and do not have a TV show that you are truly trying to watch for fandom or liking reasons, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE turn to Nickelodeon to at least have on The Legend of Korra to aid our ratings. Maybe if we can get enough ratings Nickelodeon will smarten up with everything.
- YOU DON’T EVEN HAVE TO WATCH IT!!! Just turn on the tv to the channel and turn down the volume while you’re on your computer or something. JUST PLEASE HELP A POORLY TREATED FANDOM OUT!!! ‘
We’ve all stuck by each other on this site and have accomplished many things.
WE GOT SOMEONE A FURRY CHICKEN FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!!
So just please. Turn on your TV to Nickelodeon at 8pm this coming Friday, July 25th for the new episode of The Legend of Korra and help your Tumblr family out!
