jmourning replied to your post “Do you think the negative attitude in the fandom...”
I was and am rather appalled at some "fans" on Twitter before season 2 of GO was announced voicing their displeasure at "old" fans (meaning female fans) shipping "two old men" - I mean, I personally think DT and MS are both quite attractive and as I was late to Fandom had mostly seen positive interactions across the Fandom, most debates about body type and sexual preferences of the characters. I'm still shocked at the ageism.
It really is something, isn’t it? What’s interesting to me is that it seems like there are two types of GO fans unique to Twitter, but on opposite sides: The ones who constantly sexualize Michael and David and talk about their bodies in a “positive” way; and the ones who do not view Michael and David sexually and talk about their bodies in a negative way, even if indirectly.
But what’s not unique to Twitter, sadly, is the ageism. The idea that it’s only okay to ship characters/people if they’re under a certain age. What these fans don’t realize is that life doesn’t stop when you are 30, and neither does love. An entire facet of Aziraphale and Crowley’s relationship (almost all of it, it could be argued) is that they didn’t fit in where they were from, and it was through their relationship with each other that they found and accepted who they are. Even though everyone and everything else in the universe had decided it was too late, Aziraphale and Crowley got a second chance with each other. They chose each other, exactly as they are, That is another facet of the show and their relationship--that Aziraphale doesn’t measure up to the “ideal” physical standards for an angel. And despite that--or perhaps because of it--Crowley chooses him.
Going back to the previously mentioned Twitter fans, that type of reaction makes me angry on a different level when thinking of Michael and David. If Michael and David are in a relationship--speaking hypothetically here--wouldn’t that be something that would make them feel reluctant to be public about it? Fearfulness of the potential response, for a number of reasons--both of them already being in “monogamous” relationships with women, the impact on their careers due to homophobia/biphobia in the industry--and particularly fear of judgment from people because they had the unmitigated gall to find each other when they weren’t young and pretty.
The truth be told, neither of those extremes--sexualizing or shaming--are good. Both dehumanize Michael and David and reduce them to a commodity, albeit in different ways. I know they are actors and fans feel this weird sense of ownership over the characters (and them, by extension), but...can’t we just treat Michael and David like people? Can’t fans stop looking at them and seeing exaggerated (positive or negative) versions of Michael and David, and see them as who they actually are? I think that’s all anyone wants, really...

the way that some mcu fans actively dislike people talking about the comics,,, like yeah they’re separate entities but a) the mcu draws heavily from the comics (obviously) and b) we should be talking about the way the mcu adapts the comics because that’s one of the ways we can spot straightwashing and whitewashing and other issues in the mcu that a lot of the fandom seems to want to ignore. when the mcu erases marginalised identities, people are so quick to defend it as “a different universe so ok” like??? no that’s still erasing identities. you’re allowed to like things that have issues but refusing to acknowledge the issues with media you enjoy is ignoring the way it hurts people

see, that's actually the problem i have with tma, because... to me, tma reads as an incredibly white story? down to its specific themes and how it develops them. there are narratives, questions the story asks, symbolism and character moments that just... completely change in meaning if you imagine jon as a man of color. tma engages with power and agency in ways that feel like it's *aware* that it's a white narrative, and the fanon obscures that for me. it's odd.
POINTS AT THIS
like, it's not just tma that does this, but it IS a podcast with a very large fandom that has projected nonwhite identities onto... white ppl. and so fandom utterly changes the original story to, imo, one with a much deeper meaning than originally intended, bcos if jon is a poc then some themes CHANGE. (some white fans do not at all realize what these changes mean, tho... that's a different beef.)
and yeah like, me & several other fans of color have pointed out that like... this is a VERY white story. even the few characters of color are... often written like. white ppl. bcos unfortunately! as well-intentioned as jonny sims is!! he uh. he has had a tendency to use race as an aesthetic. and he is... white, and so clearly writing from a white perspective on things.

In case you need more reasons why reposters suck and actual artists are beyond heckin’ sick of them.
I know some of ya’ll think you’re helping the artists by giving them “exposure” but you’re really not because people are still putting all the attention on your account. Yes, even if you give credit (which this particular person didn’t at first; she didn’t add it until people started nagging about it in the comments).
DO 👏 NOT 👏 REPOST 👏 ART 👏 THAT 👏 ISN’T 👏 YOURS
IT 👏 ISN’T 👏 FAIR 👏 TO 👏 THE 👏 ARTISTS 👏 WHO 👏 NOT 👏 ONLY 👏 SPENT 👏 HOURS 👏 ON 👏 THE 👏 DRAWINGS 👏 BUT 👏 ALSO 👏 YEARS 👏 DEVELOPING 👏 THEIR 👏 SKILLS
Artists greatly appreciate feedback and comments and you’re taking that away from them and focusing it all towards yourself, who did nothing more than find a pretty picture on Google 
KNOCK 👏 IT 👏 OFF

Can we all just.... collectively respect and agree that fanfiction writers shouldn’t feel pressured into doing hours and hours of research to make sure their stories are more “realistic?” Can we mutually respect the effort some writers CHOOSE to make by researching tons of details to their heart’s content, as well as the ones who just make it up as they go along? 
Lately, I just really feel like fandom culture places an unrealistic emphasis on research, and is often used as the dominant compliment towards those writers who are more inclined to do so. But, as a result, there’s both indirect and sometimes direct shaming towards authors who simply don’t have the time, energy, or desire to over-complicate the already emotionally exhausting task of creative writing by adding extensive research and details to their fics. 
Research should be a choice, not a priority or requirement. Some people are mega nerds when it comes to research and get pleasure out of it as much as (if not more so) than the act of writing itself. Others, like myself, already deal with crippling anxiety over writing ANYTHING at all, and the moment I think of “accurate” details and “realism” to my story, I crumble under the perceived pressure. 
I’ve personally been shamed by anons in the past for my apparent “laziness” when I last ranted about the injustice of expecting tons of research into my fanfiction, and it’s haunted me ever since. It’s a big reason why I’m stuck on my ongoing AU, because I keep lamenting over the lack of knowledge I have over drug lords, corrupt underworld organizations, etc, when, at the end of the day, it’s a goddamn Inuyasha fanfiction featuring demons and humans alike in gangs! Who gives a fuck?! There are TONS of professional authors out there who put little to no research into their PUBLISHED works, and yet, most of the criticisms they get are usually not based in the lack of research, but in the writing itself. 
And even though I know I can also write whatever the fuck I want and however I want, that pressure, that invisible wall continues to block me. 
Just..... let fanfiction writers do their thing, okay? Whether or not there’s research used in small or nonexistent doses, or immense amounts, that does not define the quality of the writing of the fic itself. It’s time to stop this notion that if you’re writing an anime fic that every single nuance of Japanese culture must be included in some shape or form. It’s time to stop expecting exact historical accuracy in a historical AU. It’s just..... not fair and it’s incredibly emotionally/psychologically exhausting to place that kind of pressure on any fanfic writer who’s only writing the fics for fun, not for profit.

The JSE Artist Project!!
After nearly 4 months, it’s finally here!! This project has been an amazing journey, seeing it turn from a small idea to this masterpiece of what is just a small fraction of this creative community.  To Sean, thank you for inspiring us and encouraging us; the nonstop support for all types of artists all over the world does not go unrecognised. From the ‘professional artist’ to the ‘just-starting artist’, thanks for helping us grow in our skills and our confidence.

Bruce: We should have met in the cave.
Dick: C'mon Bruce, it's fine. Everyone's tired of Alfred's cucumber sandwiches. We're all here, so enjoy, talk. We'll listen.
Everyone staring at Bruce: ...
Bruce: Fine. But if Alfred gets word of your cucumber sandwich remark...
Bruce: ...God help us all.
