i’m not in the fandom either but i believe it’s because in-universe saying ‘hail hydra’ is basically the equivalent of saying heil hitler as hydra are a nazi group
stop saying “hail hydra”
Listen to me very carefully, because this is important. Don’t rob PoC of their safe spaces, this being the fandom. Don’t turn this into Teen Wolf and Sleepy Hollow, where characters of color are ignored and dismissed for white dudes.
The tag is already flooded with him, so making statements like how he’s the best character in the whole show, totally dismissing the characters of color, is really shitty. You’re welcome to educate yourselves on fandom racism, and how you contribute to it unawarely. If you even have time check out my “slash” tag or the blog I just linked you to. Fandoms latching on to the white characters with a diverse cast is typical fandom behavior, and it’s very hurtful and damaging. Please, don’t be that fandom.
okay so i see posts about lots of other lgbtqia identities in books and other media but i rarely see things with aromantic and/or asexual characters, so i’ve gone on a hunt to try and find some things that have aro and/or ace characters!!
i would like to state i havent read/watched many things on this list (yet) so i don’t know how good they are in quality.
i will update this as i find more!! feel free to add to the list!!
when people say that Wes is the most attractive one on the show
Excuse me? Kid, do you have any idea how hard it is for fandoms to give a damn about black characters and find them attractive? Here you are saying that no, the white dude everyone is already obsessed with just because they care about gay characters when they’re white cis dudes is more attractive. Get out of here and educate yourself before you talk.
OP knows exactly what they meant. How dare fans say Alfie Enoch, a black man, is more attractive than generic white dude from central casting. How dare we????
And we also know they don’t care about gay characters since they’re so intent on replacing Oliver with Asher, the straight white dude, in Connor’s affections.
Most of these lists focus on the characters, not the authors, but they’re a good place to start:
Also, this livejournal list:
If a female character kicks ass, she’s overpowered. If a female character can’t defend herself, she’s unnecessary. If a female character acts nice, she’s boring. If a female character acts mean, she’s a bitch. If a female character shows no emotion, she’s heartless. If a female character shows emotion, she’s weak. What can a female character do without being criticized mercilessly?
just ask Allison Argent. Everyone loves her now
im sorry once again for inactivity, i’ve been having some issues regarding mental health atm but im trying to sort myself out so bear with me!!
