Listen I didn't want to talk about this, I haven't mentioned it in like over 2 weeks, but I have to say something. Leave JD and her friends/supporters alone. This has gone on for too long and people keep dragging it out and now one of JD's friends has been physically harmed.
Speaking as both a danmei fan and a mental health professional, I think fandom tends to pathologize kinks way too much. Perhaps it's because a majority of fandom is so young, perhaps it has to do with the tendency for self-diagnosis in recent years due to factors I won't get into
I was chatting with pals this morning and we were like, "wouldn't it be cool if there was some kind of directory of therapists who know about fandom?" And then realized I had the power to do that! Anonymously add a therapist or find one here! https://fandom-gets-therapy.carrd.co/
so puritans can draw themselves choking out proship people but we are the freaks
Ok so here's a small thread of antis being predators and physically harming people. (this is a small thread, I'm tired, so couldn't go through all my tweets, y'all please add stuff in the comments)
tw // racial slurs Okay I have to document this. Someone pointed out smth going on in the screenshot thread. Apparently fantis are making false accusations of racism to deflect from ppl trying to correct them about the ship not being incest. (screenshots in following tweet)
I think the "shut up its just a drawing" in response to liking gore is weird because it implies the only reason why I'm not going outside and having my own toxic abusive hannigram romance story and stabbing my crush in real life is the fact that there's a law against it
tw / pedophilia i think the “shut up it’s just a drawing” response to sexualizing minors in anime is weird cause it implies the only reason they arent sexualizing minors is real life is the fact that there’s a law against it.
Just read someone on Twitch say that "loving trans people isn't easy," and when pressed about it, said that it was "only their opinion." 😡 So, RT this if you're either madly in love with a trans person or would love a trans partner unconditionally. I'd like to prove something.
@viviangirll As a CSA survivor, I can only project my own experience. I read this as an artist creating a narrative whereby the victim of CSA reframes the narrative to put themselves in a position of power, where in reality they felt powerless. It’s therapeutic. And healthier than shaming.
@aekiv0 They’re not any of those things. You’ve twisted their art/artistic expression into those extremes because you don’t understand art history, Greco Roman mythology, or metaphorical, allegorical, or thematic storytelling. Your narrowmindedness is your own shortcoming, not theirs.
Rhetoric used against bi, trans and aro/ace is portable. ''X is an irrelevant identity; they are really straight/enjoying straight-passing privileges; they are oppressors trying to sneak their way into our safe spaces; they are a threat; for our safety they must be excluded!''
Bi was treated as ''invalid.'' You're either ''enjoying straight privilege'' by ''choosing the other side'' or you're not. Which side are you on? Exclus treat aro/ace as an 'irrelevant identity', not inherently queer, in the same way bis were judged on ''who they partnered with''
Historically radfems argued that bisexual women had to 'pick sides'. Were they on the side of their cisters or not? Men are the enemy. If you're open to sleeping wih the enemy, you're a traitor and not committed to your (radical lesbian) feminism.
One someone bites for one identity, the same arguments can be extended/applied to other groups: 'stargenders & non-binary pretenders want to fake their way in', 'queer is too inclusive, has become meaningless, is a slur .. queer theory is a joke .. LGB(T) is the full acronym.'
It may be bisexuals, or a subset of trans people (truscum, transmeds, enbyphobes). Increasingly it's ace/aro people. The arguments radfems push to justify their exclusion will mirror arguments teRFs use to exclude trans ppl: 'males/straight ppl trying to invade our safe spaces'
Radical feminist recruitment is a process. People don't go to sleep supporting trans people and wake up a full-blown TERF. Its a process. It begins for a lot of people by a radfe'm finding some 'weak spot' or 'chink' in someone's armour where they're open to excluding ppl.
pardon my discourse but maybe fiction affects your reality so irreversibly because you my good bitch have the moral backbone of a chocolate eclair
Trauma isn't always 'I've been hurt and now I'm soft and weak uwu💔' Sometimes trauma is fits of rage, being jealous of everyone who didn't go through this, having violent thoughts, struggling to not act on them and wondering how far you would go to undo what has been done to you
twitter is great for my self esteem in that it's made me realize i have so many good qualities such as "mind's own business" and "has never doxxed anybody"
idk who needs to hear this but how you treat other humans says more about you than your taste in fiction.
hot take but accs that desperately advertise themselves as "minor friendly" are much more creepy and way more in the groomer terrirory then NSFW accs with 🔞 and "no minors" in bio
can we award the unsung heroes of fandoms? people who see content/ships they dont like and they just mind their business? they dont comment that they don't like something, they just keep scrolling you are the mvp. you're loved. your maturity and silence is appreciated and valued

Originally, when people asked "What is your Sign?" they meant your Rising Sign. It wasn't until astrologer R.H. Naylor invented Sun Sign astrology in 1930, specifically for newspapers, that Sun Sign astrology became a thing.
