Nobody scares me more than drunk white men in numbers.
imagine you were the lead on a tv show and were constantly berated about whether or not two supporting characters that are never on…
to the extent that a lot of sterek shippers watch the show for a crack ship that has basically no development and no chance of happening in canon to the exclusion of every other character while sidetracking every. single. conversation. to be about their ship, i think it’s on point to say that that phenomenon is pretty twisted and bizarre. i’m not sure how he could’ve phrased it better or more clearly, or why people are trying to say that he’s referring to m/m ships when he’s also stated that he’d be down for an onscreen sciles kiss
the response to it is even more telling, because cishet white women who ship sterek and cis white gay dudes are the ones shitting all over posey, a latino actor, for a very astute observation and they’re crying homophobia instead of admitting that their ship is about an adult who’s killed a bunch of people and who has no chemistry with the high school junior they want him with. i also find it incredibly disingenuous that sterek shippers claim to ship it for the sake of ‘representation’ while they sideline the CANONICALLY GAY CHARACTER who happens to also be a man of color i’m starting to see a theme here
posey has every right to be frustrated and fed up with the fandom/the production and to express it. imo he’s been classy about not shutting it down for way too long and he’s pretty clearly not talking about sterek as a ship, or sterek shippers as individuals.
'hey if you watch this show so you can bombard EVERY SINGLE CAST MEMBER with questions about two white guys who have barely an hour of interaction throughout three seasons so you can daydream about them touching dicks while you sideline every other character who isn't a white man (including the LEAD CHARACTER), that's fucked up and you're watching the show for the wrong reasons'
sounds about right, and the backlash looks like pushback from a virulently racist and misogynistic fandom to me. tbh i avoid TW fandom like the goddamn plague and shit like its treatment of posey/scott is most of the reason.
daily reminder that the boy you’re in love with at 16 probably won’t matter when you’re 25.
daily reminder that the math test you failed your freshman year of high school probably won’t matter when you’re graduating college.
daily reminder that the problems you’re facing today may seem like the worlds end, but they will not matter in a year.
daily reminder that you’re going to be okay.
everything is going to be okay.
the elena story line just sucks so hardcore because at this point it seems like the main character was fridged (even if she comes back) just in order to cause Damon pain and move along his development
fair warning: my liveblogging will consist 98% of blatant man hate and probably anti everyone who is a man
because the main character was fridged for a manpain saga and i am full of womanly rage
but he laughs like a serial killer which is cute too i guess
