Why do people who promote random hate think there is any justification for it? ~sigh~ Here’s the latest in stupidity from around the world…
So @LandryQWalker tweeted a photo of this t-shirt from Wondercon…
Most of the responses I saw to @LandryQWalker’s tweet were people agreeing with them that it was horrid and wrong. What I didn’t expect was this post…
That’s right. Not only did @cappuccino_nite try to justify the first horrible t-shirt because she’s a woman and was involved in its production, @cappuccino_nite then goes on to proudly display another anti-fangirl t-shirt.
So, let’s see.
1) They’re trying to police how much others enjoy various media.
2) They’re trying to justify attacking people by suggesting other options were available.
3) They’re upset if others enjoy media in different ways to themselves.
Wow. Okay. I can totally understand why they had to make nasty t-shirts now! ~eyeroll~
Everyone who is admitting to being involved in making these t-shirts is trying to justify their actions too. Check out Garlic-Demon's DA page where the description of the piece is awful, and the responses to negative comments, some also by tac-smoothoperator who requested the art for the t-shirt, just get worse.
If tac-smoothoperator wants to claim anyone can be a fangirl, why are they gendering anything, and why make more than one version?
Yeah. No hate towards anyone in particular at all.
~eyerolling doesn’t cover this~
BTW, @LandryQWalker didn’t know who was behind the t-shirt at the time, they just called them out on the bullshit. The t-shirt has since been claimed as the work of Tankhead Custom Tees, who are proudly promoting the t-shirt on their fb page.
No one has the right to tell others how to enjoy a TV show, comic, film, music, poetry, etc. Hell, so much art is made to be left open to encourage interpretation, and even education requires you analyze and interpret film and literature.
So here are my words to all fans…
Dear fans of all types,
I am not concerned with how you enjoy media, I am simply glad you have something you enjoy :) I don’t care if you enjoy the same things I do or not, or even if you enjoy them in the same way I do or not, I just think it’s awesome when people are excited by things :)
I do have a problem if your enjoyment comes from being nasty to others. That’s not enjoyment, that’s bullying. The world can be a crappy place, and happiness is something to be cherished. Hold tight to what brings you happiness, and don’t piss on others when they find what makes them happy.
Deal? Deal :)
Discovered today that my electrical kitchen appliances are on their way out. I haven’t made pancakes in a long time but I have always looked after my equipment so I didn’t consider how old they were now.
First my blender was leaking from a deteriorated seal.
Then my Bamix spun its blade out of itself. It seems the plastic connector had also deteriorated with age.
Then, filled with dread, I tried my hand mixer. I have owned this mixer the longest, since I was 16 years old, and I have always taken exceptional care of it. I attached the beaters, plugged it in, and gingerly turned it on low.
The saddest whir came from it as the beaters moved slowly. Hoping that I was just forgetting how fast the lowest setting was I turned it up to 2 and then 3. It continued to whir sadly and tried it’s best to spin a little faster. I decided to try to finish the pancake mixture I had started but not finished with the other mixers.
As soon as the beaters hit the mixture they stopped completely. Poor little hand mixer :’(
So this was the most expensive pancake mixture I’ve ever made. Sure it had almond flour in it, but it also managed to finish off three appliances!
Of course, all this is happening when I’m trying to save for a Wacom. Perfect timing.
Oh, and the pancake mixture was a horrid failure after all that time waiting to be mixed well, lol.
Michelle Rodriguez wants you to read LAZARUS.
(Well, actually, I think she wants to play Forever, but, you know, the one could lead to the other…).
Mostly, I’m blogging this because it’s MICHELLE RODRIGUEZ and she likes our book! And that’s reason enough. So there.
Super freakin’ awesome!
First Track on Incongruent: “I Fucking Love Science.” I think this will also be the first music video…if all goes according to plan.
Obviously, this is the explicit version. If you like it please share! And high five to Rob Scallon for that SICK DRUM SOLO!
God I’m excited about this.
For anyone that wants to sing along right from the start :D
These two were acting like complete teenagers. When I walked up, she was nuzzling her head against his shoulder. She giggled the entire time I talked with them, while he kept a big goofy grin on his face. And whenever I asked about their relationship, she clutched his arm, looked at him just like this, giggled, then said: “We’re not telling!”
what have you unleashed
nonipple or nipplefeelin. i win.
Shrieking-Nipple. Nipple-Affliction. I have no idea which is better.
I can’t pick my fave between xombienipple and nipplekitty!
Wait… did I just name my boobs? :P
After a weekend of broken sleep I was up all night last night. So much stress about things I couldn’t deal with until business hours Monday. I’m a stress bunny normally but having to just wait all weekend was eating away at me even more.
Now it’s 10am Monday (well, it’s later than that now because other phone calls happened while I wrote this, lol) and everything is either sorted or in the process of being sorted (eg. I’ve contacted them but I’m waiting on their response now). Yay! This feels significantly better. I still have stupid high levels of stress but I know where I stand on more than half the things I had to deal with.
Oh, and after a ranting phone call to my energy provider (seriously, please stop telling me about your staff issues, it’s not my problem. I pay you for a service, not to hear you whine bullshit excuses at me), it was so nice to get a lovely and helpful person at Ambulance Victoria. I wish all companies had the wonderful lady I spoke to working for them. She was just so super nice (I think I surprised her with how much I thanked her for being lovely), and not just happy but eager to help, and it was wonderful to finish this round of sorting stuff on a high note :)
It’s Anna! #frozen #occadelaide
Yay! Another of my friends!
Your convention pics are full of awesome critters I know ♥
