Fandom misogyny is REAL MISOGYNY. If you can't have sympathy with women in media then when?
Submit links, found posts, memes, meta posts or metacommentary. My profile pic is just SOME of the women who get disproportionate amounts of hate.

It doesn't matter if Moffat makes regenerations where the race or sex/gender of the person changes canon if he only throws it in as a joke or tidbit and doesn't actually do anything with it.

penguintim:

Exactly. Moffat era has told us that regeneration can lead to change in race and gender, but all we’ve gotten is a woman of colour becoming white, mention of a cool gender-changing friend of the Doctor who never appears onscreen, and still only cishet white men playing the lead role.

verygibbous:

what if “lucy” was about lucy liu casually beating up pervy white dudes instead

and the story was about an asian woman who gets justice from the white men who used and abducted her

and it was an effective commentary on white imperialism, the violent commodification of asian people and asian culture by western society, the demonization of asian people, and the continuing history of violence on unwilling asian bodies especially those of asian women by white people

and what if when a pervy white dude asks the asian woman “do you speak english” while he’s in fucking taiwan, she shoots him in the head instead

what if this movie wasn’t going to be a bunch of white imperialist nonsense masquerading as something “progressive” at the expense of faceless nameless asian bodies

STOP “GIRL CRUSH” 2K14

I always see ‘girl crush’ as meaning that a straight girl really likes another girl in such a way that if they were gay, it would be sexual attraction, but since they’re straight, it’s not sexual attraction… It’s nothing to do with ‘no homo’ because the male equivalent is ‘man crush’. The whole ‘no homo’ thing, I don’t even understand that. I mean, I can understand why people would view the two to be very similiar, but having a girl crush or a man crush on someone is different than having a crush on them.

For example, I have a huge girl crush on Katie McGrath. I find it pleasing to both watch and listen to her. I am attracted to her, but not in a sexual manner. Hence girl crush. I don’t see what’s so wrong with saying that. It’s like I go around deliberatley saying ‘I absolutely love Katie McGrath - but not like, in a gay way, just a really really straight way…’ and I rarely even use the term ‘girl crush’ when referring to my love of certain people like Katie McGrath. It’s just a term to define what that attraction is. Most of the time I’ll quite happily reblog a picture of a fine female with tags such as ‘why are you so gorgeous?!’ and ‘I love this woman so much!’.

I’m not sorry for not being gay, much in the same way people who are gay shouldn’t be sorry for that. That is who I am.

look at this str8y literally describe what ‘no homo’ is while saying it’s not ‘no homo’

no1currs about ur str8ness

Basically. Even if a gay pairing isn’t together(and probably never will be, whether because the characters are straight and/or those two characters don’t get along, the woman is usually made a villain. For instance, I recall Harry Potter fics where they’d get Draco and Harry together, and turn Hermione and Ron into complete assholes to make it happen. Hell, I recall Harry/Hermione fics where Ron and Ginny were treated terribly and like bad guys. Ron as a deatheater. Ginny as a “slut” or a rapist(apparently they think she gave Harry a love potion). Heck most of the Weasleys usually are turned into villains, except for Fred and George. Even Molly who treated Harry as a son. They basically make the Weasleys out to be gold diggers who only wanted Harry’s money.

Plus, there are the times when people act like the female character created the biggest sin by liking the guy and getting with him and as if the storyline doesn’t make sense, even if the show has been giving them deeper interaction. FYI, the guy must like her as well. Other than that,  even if the male character was bi or gay, there is no proof that he’d get with the guy that they want him to be with. Or that he’d even like that guy.

We need more bisexual girls in fiction. Happy out and proud. Sad and closeted and scared. Bi girls of color. Trans and genderqueer and two-spirit bi characters. Bi characters who don’t know they’re bi until someone tells them bisexuality is real. Bi girls pretending to be straight. Bi girls pretending to be lesbians. Immigrant bi girls who have got bigger issues to worry about than being bi. With more diversity in our bi girls in fiction, one bi girl character with internalized biphobia won’t stick out so terribly.

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

so important to remember before you hate a female character.

i hate when people go “i dont credit fanartists as Real artists because its fanart and they should draw more original art” ok yeah that patronizing attitude is nice and all but you know like… every piece of classical art is fanart of the bible

im sorry da vinci, the last supper doesnt COUNT as real art because its not original art and you should make some ocs

I think I just found the most compelling argument toward fanart ever

queer-sports:

Apparently there was a group of Native Americans protesting the Cleveland Indian’s racist mascot, Chief Wahoo, outside Progressive Field before an Indians game, and this totally-not-racist fan (we know this because allegedly he stated he had Native friends) decided to confront them IN FULL RED FACE AND A CHEAP HEADDRESS.
Much respect for the man on the left for not killing that racist right then and there.

What makes me REALLY pissed off is when fic writers pair Thor off with Darcy because 'she's better suited'. Why? The reasoning appears to be down to the fact that Darcy is more 'womanly' than Jane. For ACTUAL FUCKS SAKE. Body hate, destroying female friendship and internalised misogyny in one go! I read one particularly disturbing fic where Darcy uses Loki's magic to become Jane, sleep with Thor then they brake up because Darcy's better in bed. ARRGH. This fandom makes me so ANGRY! *Hulk rage*

That is super fucking shitty, all around.

How is it that people say JJ Abrams is the worst when he is the first director to allow a female character to have a significant place in the triumvirate. To support Uhura being female lead and getting a healthy consensual romance. The first director to expand upon her skills, actually give her a first name, AND have her speak an alien language. No he isn't perfect, but none of the past writers/directors/films did a damn thing to expand her character, yet fans glorify those movies. SMDH!

I suspect they hate him precisely for this reason, nonny.

…Oooor it could be because he can’t go a movie without showing women in their underwear, he supported the writer and agreed with them that said they included the birth scene in Star Trek Reboot “to provide something to interest the women in the audience”, and had literal asian cat girls.

I totally get wanting to defend Uhura and I support a lot of what the writers did with her, but that doesn’t negate a lot of the other messed up shit JJ pulled including white washing shit with Khan.

But the people shitting on Nu!Uhura aren’t talking about the fucked up choices made by JJ, Linderlof (the one that said the shit about the birth scene), and whitewashing Khan, are they? No they’re not. Their “complaints” revolve around pairing Uhura and Spock and how she “belongs” with a character she only admitted feelings for while under mind control.

There ARE problems with the reboots, and we’re all very aware of them. But according to THIS fandom, the WORST thing about the reboots and garners the most criticism on here, Facebook, LiveJournal, TrekMovie.com, IMDb, and every comments section on any article about the movies, etc is Uhura, not any of the things you mentioned. STiD came out 11 months ago, and we’re still seeing posts shitting on Nu!Uhura as recently as two days ago, and not a peep about whitewashing Khan, the Catians, and anything else. You have to see there’s a continuous, disproportionate amount of venom directed towards Nu!Uhura, and it’s been there since 2009.
