this sentence is giving me a migraine 

Iggy’s gonna be the first real superstar female rapper you guys ignore Lauryn and Missy’s grammy’s and critical acclaim ignore Nicki’s platinum albumS and sell out tours and critically acclaimed mixtapes ignore it all, ms crocodile dundee dropped one mediocre 8 track mixtape and did 2 songs that everyone only knows the chorus too SHE’S the one to watch!!! 

The most depressing part of this is that lat month Nicki Minaj actually broke the record for the most appearances as a lead, collaborative, or featured guest artist on the Billboard Hot 100. But nah, forget her, she’s not important, let’s all gush about how successful Iggy Azalea is instead.

iggy ain’t even the best part of her own song!

Drama in the Flash fandom already?

So i saw the Flash Pilot….it was cute. :)

But to my “shock” (and yes I’m being sarcastic) there are already shipper wars. Cause you know that’s what tv shows are all about…..and yes I’m being sarcastic once again.

I don’t understand this whole if you like Caitlin Snow more than Iris West, or…

The “Drama in the Flash fandom” begin when white fans realized that Iris West would be played by Candice Patton, who is black.  If you think it’s “all about shipping”, then I don’t know what to tell you.  This shit has been going on since February, when Candice’s casting was announced.  

Whether it’s the comic book “purists” who think Barry not having blonde hair isn’t a deal breaker, but Iris being black is.  Or the ones that feel the creators are “shoehorning” diversity into the show.  Or the ones that took to Twitter to discuss their dislike of casting Jesse L. Martin as Candice’s father (even after they knew Candice was already cast), to the point that Grant Gustin had to tweet his support of the casting.  Or the fans that *automatically* dislike Iris for no valid reason after viewing the trailer.  Because fandoms *automatically* dislike perky white characters, right?

And then the fans that started with the “Iris and Barry don’t match, I ship him with Caitlin/Felicity”, or “Iris is going to be like Laurel (as if we don’t know how that actress is treated by the Arrow fandom)”,  or “why is Iris black?” or “Iris should stay friends with Barry.  She doesn’t need a relationship”.

But you know, the drama started because of “shipping”…..

Ummmm I never said it was all about shipping. I focused on shipping in the beginning then went on and talked about the actual characters and their character traits. To be clear I’m simply stating if one likes one over the other don’t jump to the race card cause they are very different type of characters that will appeal to different people!

Why are you generalizing as “white fans” have you seen or spoken to every single complainer to know they are white? That’s like saying “black fans” are the only ones happy about them casting an African american.

If they didn’t find Iris interesting in the trailer, so what? Why do you automatically assume its cause of her skin color? She didn’t exactly stand out that much in the trailer. I do think though that anyone that immediately judges a character on a trailer is wrong and stupid. But if Caitlin was the one being bashed after the trailer would you come to her defense?

I don’t think anyone should receive the vile treatment Katie receives. (FYI I met her in NYC. She’s really sweet. Which makes the hate even worse) or even Katia from Sleepy Hollow.

Listen, if you are hating Iris cause she’s black, you are wrong, if you are hating Caitlin cause she’s white, you are wrong. But if you are bashing anyone for liking Caitlin more than Iris, or shipping her with Barry over him and calling them racist for it, then you are also wrong.

"White fans" because it was "white fans" that were writing all the racist comments about Candice’s casting.  It’s not like these people hid their faces behind an avatar, and those people certainly made no bones about their dislike of Candice’s and Jesse’s casting because of their race.   

Caitlin wouldn’t be bashed after the trailer because there was nothing to bash about her, just like there was nothing to bash Iris about (yet it certainly didn’t stop fans from bashing Iris).  Absolutely nothing at all, and certainly not enough to make people dislike her after seeing the trailer.  The fact that ANYONE made negative snap judgments about Iris is the problem, and those snap judgments are just as irrational IF they were about Caitlin (which they were not). 

Katia Winter doesn’t get any “vile treatment”.  No one harasses Katia Winter on Twitter, or Instagram.  No one asks rude questions at panels or disrespects Katia as a person, like those Arrow fans treat Katie (which is especially nasty). I’ve yet to see anyone boo her when she walks on stage. I’ve seen enough mistreatment of Nicole Beharie, Meagan Tandy, Freema Agyeman, Amber Riley, Vinette Robinson, and Angel Coulby, Lucy Liu, and Chloe Bennet to know that Katia Winter doesn’t get “vile treatment”.  Indifference to her character doesn’t equate to “vile treatment” to Katia Winter as a person.  

I also think it’s rich that you think people are playing a card, as if fandoms do not disproportionately dislike, minimize, and vilify fictional POCs AND the actors and actresses that play those characters.  As if people do not have reasons for labeling people as such, considering those fans do not hide their bigoted views, especially when it comes to black characters.   

I mean, I’ve seen enough fandom wank in the last year about black male AND black female characters to know that race is a factor in why fans *automatically* dislike and/or suspicious of black characters, from Sam Wilson (Falcon/Avengers), to Antoine Triplett (Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D), to Danny Pink (Doctor Who), to Braedon (Teen Wolf), and that’s just this year. Or even other characters of color like Skye (Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D) and Joan Watson (Elementary).  

My question to you is this: since you KNOW Iris/Candice was/is being bashed before and after the trailer, did you defend her?  Did you take those people to task for their negative comments?  Or did you think fans upset about her treatment in fandom were “playing the race card”?

#Oh well  #i truly believe in the superiority of all of my ships  #*Kanye shrug*  #about me 
captaindove asked: "#true story#raven would#bellamy not so much" yaaaaas I have been thinking about this while trying to write about them and work through my feelings. how raven would be in denial a lot longer, because while they both have a fear of losing the ones they love, in raven I can see it manifesting in a wariness of admitting any attachments esp. after the way things ended with finn. whereas it's pretty clear in bellamy's case it presents as grabbing any loyalty within reach and holding on TIGHT.


Answer:

THIS EXACTLY!!! I feel like after what happened with finn she’d swear off romance, it’s not like they have time anyway. And apparently she can’t even trust her heart bc you know she thought finn was the big deal and look how well that turned out… So she’d be on full on denial mode and yeah bellamy’s kind of cute and sometimes she gets a fuzzy feeling when she thinks about him but you know whatever, doesn’t mean anything…just a coincidence…let’s just shelf that weird feeling away.

Bellamy I think would maybe try the denial route for a very little while but would face the fact very quickly and after the initial shock, would not be very good @ being subtle. Maybe even confront her @ some point one way or another idk, these 2 get me thinking!

And Lindsey Morgan when asked about the possibility of a new romance season 2 replied:
- her head makes sense to her but her heart doesn’t
- even if raven did liked someone she wouldn’t go there, actually she’d shy away from it
- It would totally take her by surprise

Which is basically how i would expect raven to react (i can’t see lindsey make all those assumptions about Raven without the writers giving her a clearer insight on who her character was)

At this point i’m hoping so fucking hard that the writers dont let all this potential and prettiness go to waste :////

xxvalleygirlxx:

Kristen Stewart, Zooey Deschanel, Jennifer Aniston, Katherine Heigl, Blake Lively and a whole flurry of mediocre white actresses (who btw play the same roles OVER AND OVER) are always offered roles. Meanwhile, Oscar nominated/winning black actresses (who have won other awards prestigious as well) are struggling to remain relevant. Just because there are a lot of black led TV shows coming this fall, that doesn’t mean the struggle is over or lessening. Many of these actresses have had to move onto TV roles or do both because they haven’t been offered enough (or appropriate) roles. 

Chile

But white folks too quick to say we have ‘enough’ roles for Black folks in media…

Kristen Stewart calls it “luck.” I call it white privilege.
