"You can't consume problematic media!"
Maybe YOU can't. I, on the other hand, have critical thinking skills and a lot of spite
Edit: Because I’m tired of people selectively taking my tags out of context and not following directions, have some spite and learn things please and thank you.
#i lived through the steven universe fandom#i have seen things#the zelda fandom is like. peak 'be critical of what you consume but you can also enjoy it'#proud of you guys#for those reading the original tags#this is NOT about me consuming steven universe#this is about the su fandom's attitude towards what they perceived as problematic setting a dangerous precedent for#how we interact with media as a whole#tldr: su fandom made purity culture popular and now we all suffer#what this REALLY is about#is me recognizing that the loz universe has some pretty glaring flaws#and wanting to engage anyways#like the gerudo#the gerudo are a fucking MESS#but the fandom doesn't tear them apart#they recognize that zelda has its flaws and that as long as you're mindful you can enjoy it anyways#so if dsmp or harry potter or attack on titan or anything like that are the same for you#go for it#i don't engage with those because they make me feel icky#because i can't separate the content from the creators#but i don't judge people who do like it#my zelda is someone else's mcyt is someone else's madoka magica etc etc etc#in short: do what makes you happy and don't tell strangers on the internet what to do#you wouldn't go into a barnes and noble and smack a copy of the sorcerer's stone out of a reader's hands#don't think your criticism on the internet isn't just that in digital form#new edit:#If you're here for the tags i strongly encourage you to read the rant#it's in the notes#especially if you find issue with these tags

Babygirl I've created lore for fictional characters that are so complex you wouldn't even comprehend
#*drops an excel file of all the relationships and opnions of characters from the zè comics*#the comics: the green parrot want more money#my brain: clearly because he had to become a dad at like fuckin 20 years old of twins#because his sister ran away from home as a kid and then just dropped the twins on him without any explanation help or communication#leaving him to deal with the emocional labor of that plus two children that he wasnt ready for and had no financial help#it would also explain the personality of still being viewed as lazy/greedy can you fucking imagine???#all of that being dropped on you one day and now you gotta be a dad#the transition into being more responsible would definetely take some time#i know the comics tecnically exist around tge same time as the movies but idc#its much more interesting to see the comics show an younger zè and the movies an older one#also i think it would differenciate while still keeping parallels between his sister and della#like donald is an uncle because either theres kinda this expectation of della coming back#(depends on canon i guess i like to mix stuff. comics and cartoons)#or he really is just babysitting for a while#while José is his kids guardians theres no doubt about that#there is never an implication that he is taking care of zico n zeca for his sister#there isnt the expectation their mom is going to come back or anything#yeah#i think this way the characters 1. make more sense#2. arent literal brazilian copy paste characters of the other duck comics#petiton to make zé be called dad cause yeah#idk where i was going with this#but yeah#jo.speaks#cursing tw#abandonment tw

[ okay so real talk: apparently facebook (and thus whatsapp) has a stranglehold on basic internet usage/access in large parts of the global south/“developing” countries so them being down is hugely detrimental to a whole lot of people rn. so while those services will and must get back online as soon as possible, this instance shows in the most horrible way possible the monopoly this one company holds and its direct impact on human lives. its existence is inhumane, dangerous and neo-colonialist and needs to be burned to the ground. ]

we’ve all heard of polio, a disabling and life-threatening disease caused by poliovirus, that ran rampant through the world before it was eradicated (in the west) with the introduction of a vaccine in the 1950s. enough time has passed that most of us, and most of our parents, have grown up without knowing people who survived polio.
what I bet you didn't know about is something called Post-Polio Syndrome. it occurs in more than half of people who survive poliovirus, and it occurs decades later. year after people have lived through polio, years after they have “recovered,” they begin to struggle. they begin to decline. they experience pain and weakness and loss of function. they develop new disabilities, and see old disabilities worsen. and there is no cure, only management. 
That’s what happens post poliovirus. It happens bc poliovirus causes lifelong damage, the extent of which is only revealed decades later. We are among the first generations to grow up not knowing people who live with the longterm consequences of poliovirus.
We will be among the first to find out what Post-Corona Syndrome looks like.

the funniest thing about Overwatch is how it plays itself so serious despite its handful of lore scraps all being the most ridiculous shit you’ve ever heard

can we all make an agreement that, when wilbur and the band start publishing their music, we dont make their entire existence about the fact wilburs on the dsmp? Like, please don't flood the comments only ab wilbur and youtubers, and DONT GATEKEEP THE BAND from anybody who doesnt watch Will. Appreciate the music man!! It's some swanky tunes from what we heard so far!!! You can still openly support Will and the band in mcyt spaces of course but don't reduce their music to only "block mans silly little band."
I'm writing this bc, 1.) They're a new band and I know some members could get discouraged if only one member was talked about, 2.) I don't want people to be turned away from the band from comments they don't understand or about something they might hate, and 3.) Wilbur is passionate ab this- and It's not my duty to protect him but I think he'd prolly appreciate listening to the music and liking it like with ycgma more than comparing the music to the smp.
Thank you for your time peeps :0
