I was thinking yesterday about fandom gatekeepers and straight white fanboys with chips on their shoulders and how much they suck, and while as female fans it’s immensely satisfying to lay the smack down with proof of our nerd cred, I think it’s important to also emphasise that it’s okay to be a ‘casual fan.’
It’s okay to have only seen the Marvel movies and not read the comics. It’s okay to have not seen every single episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. It’s okay to not have memorised entire scenes worth of dialogue from Star Wars. It’s okay to not know every single detail from 50+ years worth of Captain America continuity.
It’s okay to make mistakes, and it’s okay to ask questions, and it’s okay to walk into a comics store after having seen a cool superhero movie and not know where to start (and by the way, older fans, screaming ‘just google it!’ at a new fan when a new fan asks a basic question is a) rude, b) not actually helpful considering the state of a lot of wikipedia entries).
Everyone was a new fan once. Just because someone is newer to a fandom than you are doesn’t mean they’re less worthy of being treated with respect and courtesy. It’s a fucking fandom, not the Free Masons.
She should have found some other dress cause she looks like a whale.
I hope karma is instant for you blogger. She’s pregnant with twins. Get a life and possibly a soul.
She looks amazing.
Elsa Pataky is married to Chris Hemsworth, pregnant with his second and third child, dressed in a designer dress and present at the oscars while you’re at home behind a computer screen typing rude comments about her? Yeah, I think we know whose more successful in this picture. You’re body shaming isn’t going to keep her up at night. Banging her hot husband is.
Reblogging for those amazing comments.
banging her hot husband is
best comment ever.
oh yeah how dare a woman not conceal her pregnancy for you
like actually why do you give a fuck if she wore a burlap sack or a goddamn tutu? she liked it. she felt confident enough to wear it.
someone at my bible-humping baptist college told me I was going to hell because I had red hair and that’s the devil’s spawn or s/t idk they were crazy
A young black girl decided to not bleach her skin after seeing the success of Lupita Nyong’o.
Lupita Nyong’o was inspired to be an actress after seeing Oprah Winfrey and Whoopi Goldberg in The Color Purple.
Whoopi Goldberg realized she could BE an actress after seeing Nichelle Nichols in Star Trek
I know right? It was ridiculous.
Republicans are properly unstable,
I actually kinda yelled "FUCK OFF" after reading the republican's quote you just reblogged. My mum came into my room when she heard me, so i showed her and she just slowly shook her head and frowned while backing out of my room. Holy shit i'm so angry that it is a real thing that someone said. Sorry, just had to share my frustration somewhere!
I know! It made me so mad.
I still cannot believe that someone actually said those words and meant them!! Ugh.
