let’s play a game called how far can i lean off the bed to grab the thing
I really don’t care if they re-name Moana to Spirited. I don’t care if they did the same thing for Tangled and Brave.
If Disney thinks that’s what they need to do to convince boys to see the film, good, fine, do it.
I’d much rather have Disney make a film with a female lead kicking arse that little boys are willing to watch, than a film they refuse to see because the name makes it look like a “girl film”.
I think that’s nonsense. Why should a movie about a female character have the title changed to ‘hide’ that it’s about a female character? They didn’t do that with Robin Hood, or Aladdin, or The Lion King, or Tarzan. ‘Brave’ was originally titled ‘The Bear and the Bow’ so exactly what was ‘girly’ about that?
Why should anything about a female character be hidden so it will appeal to boys? Why are boys so important and matter so much? Why are boys the default? Why, even when a movie is about a female character, does it still need to appeal to boys? Notice how, ever since The Little Mermaid, even if a Disney animated film stars a female character, it’s overwhelmingly male. Why is maleness considered universally marketable but femaleness is only a ‘niche’?
Girls shouldn’t be diminished just so boys will think something about them is cool.
im an atheist because i think that science is wonderful and reality itself is so mysterious and wonderful that there is no need to believe in a god
but if a philosophy and a belief system makes you appreciate life and makes you happy and you arent hurting anyone with it
then god damn no one should be a shit to you about it

In light of the 50 Shades of Grey trailer coming out today, quick reminder that that book is about an abusive and controlling relationship, not BDSM.
Fanfiction (published or not) is important for women of all ages to explore gender roles and sexuality in a way that is less stigmatized and more accessible.
But do not do the BDSM community a disservice by calling the relationship described in the book a BDSM experience.
For the fans who’s time, effort, and passion for the show was ridiculed by Jeff Davis and the cast by reading their fanfics, mocking their hard work and love for the characters they portray, it’s time we say enough.
For the fan who asked the cast the innocent question of, “If you could ship literally any pairing that’s not currently canon on the show, who would you ship?” and was then mocked by Dylan O’Brien, who incredulously told the fan “This is the last question in the entire panel,” and was then mocked by Tyler Posey, who told the fan to “Think of a better question,” it’s time we say enough.
For the fans that were told that fanworks depicting two characters could not be signed, while fanworks depicting other pairings are acceptable, it’s time we say enough.
For the Teen Wolf fandom, who have been disrespected repeatedly by the Teen Wolf marketing team and Jeff Davis himself, for the fans that have been used by the powers that be to win polls and then mocked and humiliated once we’re no longer needed, for every person who passionately love this show and then has been shamed for that love by the cast and creators, it’s time we say enough.
It’s time to remind them why they need us.
We are calling for a general Teen Wolf Blackout for Monday’s episode. We need to reach the producers of the show in a way that they can understand.
What can you do?
- Do not tweet anything Teen Wolf related during Monday’s episode. Do not tweet the actors or the Teen Wolf account. Do not use any hashtags related to Teen Wolf.
- If you have a Nielsen box, do not watch Monday night’s episode on TV.
- Do not reblog the gifs or posts from the Teen Wolf tumblr account.
- Do not watch the episode on MTV.com.
- Reblog, reblog, reblog. Spread the word. Tell your friends, tweet the message prior to Monday’s episode.
And before anyone asks - this isn’t to make Sterek canon, this has nothing to do with any ship or character, this isn’t to ask for anything plot related in the show. This is a simple reminder that this show survives because of it’s fans, and we deserved to be treated with respect.
Spread the word.
