Nah bro trying to plant your misogyny on those mythical fetishising straight girls isn’t gonna cut it

But hey when you write gay fanfiction you’re not being ‘subversive’ because gay lives are only here to be edgy and if they get too mainstream in this one tiny sphere then it’s open season on homophobia again

Seriously this shit isn’t new or cute people have been finding reasons to define gay ships as the worst part of fandom since it began. Congrats now you get to use other minorities to pretend we’re the problem

Maybe when people start crying just as much about white het relationships I’ll start taking this seriously

Yes, because “Hey, it might be nice to have something other than white guys” is so homophobic, but “OMG don’t take my white dudes from me” is not racist even a tiny bit.

……. wow you are reading some shit into this I never said

I mean I’ve been referencing lots of ongoing convos on this topic but

WOW

I never said ‘don’t take my white guys away’

I said blaming gay fanfiction for a lack of diversity is both a) disingenuous because it categorises gay fiction as not diverse

and b) homophobic as fuck

nowhere did I say I was against more diversity. what I’m against is homophobic blame shifting

please get some reading comprehension

Most slash fiction IS NOT DIVERSE. Most fanfic is not diverse, no matter how much fandom claims to want it. Most of fandom defaults to “two white guys” if there are two white guys to be had. And a lot of that can be blamed on media that would be perfectly happy to never show us anything but white guys, but even when there are alternatives, fandom still goes for two white guys. Which is hypocritical in a fanspace that claims to want diversity.

…. okay if you can’t grasp that gay fiction in and of itself is diverse then we don’t really have anywhere else to go.

I kind of wonder how young you are that you’re not aware that the frequency and acceptance of gay ships currently evidenced on tumbler is REALLY recent and REALLY localised? ‘Perverted slash fan girls’ has a longer history than the latest round of sj targeting and it’s all been a way to complain one way or another about specifically gay ships. It was less than ten years ago that I was told to up my rating on fic because it had non-explicit gay pairings. Less than ten years when you had to warn for m/m.

Ask yourself when the last time you saw this rhetoric used around white het ships was? You’ll be unlikely to find it, because even when the lip service is towards championing other forms of diversity the undercurrent is about corralling those nasty gay parts of fandom where good fandom can’t see them. One way or another the default is to find a publically acceptable reason to vilify homosexuality. Just because you don’t think you’re not perpetuating internalized homophobia doesn’t mean you’re not.

Well I mean it’s not like there’s a long homophobic history of reducing gay people to their gross immoral sex acts and then dehumanising them that this terminology plays directly into amirite?

Look I think sherlock is shit but I don’t think fans shipping john/sherlock is the cause of that

WHY IS ELEMENTARY NOT TUMBLR’S FAVORITE SHOW

Because unfortunately while Tumblr tries to talk a good game about diversity and inclusiveness, fandom is in actuality sort of shit about liking things where they can’t just be writing about two white dudes touching dicks?

Just casually blaming gay people for the lack of diversity in fandom

Real fucking classy

I’m hoping to be pleasantly surprised but based on what we’ve seen so far the castor clones don’t feel like they’re going to be as successful as sarah & co

like, not everyone is tatiana maslany, but the way she plays the different versions is mindblowing and has set such a high standard. it’s not just accent and word choice, it’s the way cosima slinked through the door and grins really wide the first time we see her, compared to alison’s narrow crossed arms and tight mouth. even beth in the very first scene walks differently to sarah, and I think of all of them beth’s designed to be the most similar, for obvious reasons

there are just very obvious physical cues and acting choices that maslany has made that I don’t see with the men, and frankly I don’t think the costume and makeup department have done any favours either. they all stand similarly, use the same intense expressions and have similar off-the-face haircuts. I just don’t forget that I’m looking at the same actor the way I do with maslany

look part of this is that the three we’ve seen so far are all very hypermasculine men, and I’ll give that we’ve not seen much of them. but based on equal glimpses from the first season that were pulled off so much better I’m not really on board yet with whatever they’ve got planned for the castor clones in  s3

holding out hope, but not much of it to give

Something to remember is that project Castor is still (mostly, at least) under military control. Those clones have presumably all grown up under very very similar conditions, which is going to make them much more alike than the Leda clones who grew up with different families spread across the globe in all different walks of life. It might not be necessary or even desirable for the Castor clones to show as much distinction, depending on where they are going with the plot.

Oh my god. Oh my god. This is so excellent and obvious an answer and I cannot believe I didn’t realise it myself.

Tbh that aspect is still probably going to mean I don’t enjoy the Castor clones very much but yes, yes you’re right there’s totally an in-canon reason why they’re played the way they are.
