my name is Barry. I’m a 10 year old red tabby who’s looking for a home. I am super friendly, handsome, and playful. Come and visit me at: Pet alliance of Central Florida located on Orlando, Fl
Please reblog my info so I have a greater chance to find a home. Thank you.
every time you feel the need to say “it’s not realistic for a disabled person to survive in a zombie apocalypse” please go back and reread the last two words.
funnily enough, disabled people actually exist, whereas a hypothetical scenario in which rapidly decaying corpses reanimate and retain basic cognition and voracious hunger does not.
On a tangentally related note, everybody interested in disabled people quite easily surviving zombie apocalypses should promptly go read World War Z and see the kind of totally awesome, innovative, inclusive storytelling can be achieved with just a tiny bit of creativity and open-mindedness.
Ah, fanart. Also known as the art that girls make.
Sad, immature girls no one takes seriously. Girls who are taught that it’s shameful to be excited or passionate about anything, that it’s pathetic to gush about what attracts them, that it’s wrong to be a geek, that they should feel embarrassed about having a crush, that they’re not allowed to gaze or stare or wish or desire. Girls who need to grow out of it.
That’s the art you mean, right?
Because in my experience, when grown men make it, nobody calls it fanart. They just call it art. And everyone takes it very seriously.
It’s interesting though — the culture of shame surrounding adult women and fandom. Even within fandom it’s heavily internalized: unsurprisingly, mind, given that fandom is largely comprised by young girls and, unfortunately, our culture runs on ensuring young girls internalize *all* messages no matter how toxic. But here’s another way of thinking about it.
Sports is a fandom. It requires zealous attention to “seasons,” knowledge of details considered obscure to those not involved in that fandom, unbelievable amounts of merchandise, and even “fanfic” in the form of fantasy teams. But this is a masculine-coded fandom. And as such, it’s encouraged - built into our economy! Have you *seen* Dish network’s “ultimate fan” advertisements, which literally base selling of a product around the normalization of all consuming (male) obsession? Or the very existence of sports bars, built around the link between fans and community enjoyment and analysis. Sport fandom is so ingrained in our culture that major events are treated like holidays (my gym closes for the Super Bowl) — and can you imagine being laughed at for admitting you didn’t know the difference between Supernatural and The X Files the way you might if you admit you don’t know the rules of football vs baseball, or basketball?
"Fandom" is not childish but we live in a culture that commodified women’s time in such away that their hobbies have to be "frivolous," because "mature" women’s interests are supposed to be caretaking, via marriage, children, and the lives of those within an imagined (generally nuclear) family unit: things that allow others to continue their own special interests, while leaving women without a space of their own.
So think about what you’re actually saying when you call someone “too old” for fandom. Because you’re suggesting they are “too old” for a consuming hobby, and I challenge you to answer — what do you think they should be doing instead?

It’s all yours - Planet Earth. Now that’s a retirement plan. But just you be careful, though. No interfering. I don’t want any trouble. Just… just have a nice life.
Oh Doctor, I will make you proud.
GUYS, YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS SCENE.
MR. COPPER WENT ON TO CREATE THE MR. COPPER FOUNDATION.
YOU KNOW, THE MR. COPPER FOUNDATION WHICH INVENTED THE SUBWAVE NETWORK.
THE SUBWAVE NETWORK WHICH HARRIET JONES USED IN ‘THE STOLEN EARTH’ TO BRING THE DOCTOR BACK TO EARTH TO FIGHT THE DALEK INVASION AND STOP THE REALITY BOMB.
MR. COPPER IS THE BIGGEST UNSUNG HERO IN DOCTOR WHO.
Filed under reasons why RTD’s manipulation of continuity is on an AP English Lit level of subtlety and meaningfulness while Moffat’s is Japanese Videogame Series level needlessly convoluted, melodramatic, and filled with hackneyed retconning.
it infuriates me when people tell me “lifes too short to not forgive people!” like NO lifes too short for me to continually allow abusive and manipulative behavior in my life and live in a constant state of anxiety bc I want to be “nice” or whatever
There’s such a big difference between moving past what someone did to you, and forgiving someone for it. I’ve never understood why people think the latter is necessary in order to do the former.
