Fuck the word “Mary Sue”. It is literally shorthand 90% of the time for “your character is female and doesn’t act how I want a female to act so I don’t like her.” Or “your character is female and a self-insert/wish fulfillment and that makes her bad.” As if a large chunk of male characters AREN’T self-inserts or wish fulfillment characters.

You know what I’ve noticed? That the qualifications of realistic or relatable are only applied to female characters in these genres. No one questions that Steve Rogers apparently learned French, computer and technology skills, an advanced fighting technique, and had the free time to catch up on history and pop culture between The Avengers and The Winter Soldier. But Skye is good at computers and can learn how to be an agent rather quickly? MARY SUE WHO DESERVES TO DIE.

SO many male characters are Marty Stu self-inserts, like, pretty much ALL of them. Men don’t care; hell, they’re into it. Women don’t care if male characters are “too good to be true” either. Why is that? Why are we so ready to buy into those ridiculous male characters but balk at the female ones?

if your privilege/oppression framework is defined solely according to “these people get a kind of flak these people don’t get” and not “these people are actually materially exploited by these people” then you get all kinds of bullshit like vanilla privilege or, idk, non-goth privilege. tall privilege. you can apply it to literally anything

do men have resting bitch faces as well or do they not have negative characteristics ascribed to them for putting on a neutral rather than a deliriously happy facial expression

I’ve come to the conclusion that Sam and Dean would take one look at Night Vale and burn it to the ground, civilians be damned.

i’ve come to the conclusion sam and dean would drive into night vale and spontaneously combust from being exposed to sexual and racial diversity and women who don’t die within a week

really fucking tired of ppl trying 2 separate 50shades of grey from bdsm culture/community

acknowledging that 50shades of grey shouldn’t be looked at as anysort of positive example of kinkstuff/ that community isimportant 

but dont you fucking dare try to assert that “but that’s not what real doms do” “its an example of an abuser not our community!” 

like yes it fucking is, your community is full to the fucking brim with abusers
