O heart in the doldrums, O heart in hock!
Vern (rhymes with fern). White, cis, woman, midtwenties, midwestern, invested in fictional narratives, generally confused.
Fact: it took saying “ableism” out loud about five or six times before I figured out the pronunciation.
(“ah-blee-ism? Ey-bah-lee-ism? Ehy-bul-ee-ism …OHHHHH. Able-ism.”)
There I go, an information professional, staying informed. Good grief.
My dad is watching a rerun of Hell’s Kitchen in the den and I am trying to finish my term paper but the problem with Hell’s Kitchen is that I am transfixed and cannot look away.
Dear Young Justice fandom:
I realize that if you can’t vent about things you like or dislike on the internet, and specifically on tumblr, it would be a pretty sad world. And it’s great to have opinions! But saying that Character A shouldn’t be friends with (or, hey, make kisses with) Character B, because you personally do not care for Character A’s personality, feelings, struggle, and/or context, seems a little shortsighted. I mean, the narrative has things the way they are for a reason, and it is basically a show about team building, amirite? (I could be wrong. TV, it’s kind of confusing for me.)
I guess what I’m trying to say, is that when you call Character A a “bitch” and say that Character A is evil and stupid and that only Character C could ever love/understand/deserve Character B, Character A is not the one who comes off as being unreasonable.
—Actually, I think I’m really trying to say that character bashing in general, and lady-hatin’ in particular, is getting old. But I’m a lady. What do I know.
