May they be forever alone for their elitist douche-baggery.
I was recently interviewing the woman who founded Her Universe and we were talking specifically about women and geekdom. I asked about the rise of girls in geek culture and she very accurately corrected me: There is no “rise” of geek girls. We’ve always been here. Girls are just as nerdy as dudes are. Ladies have always been interested in sci fi and fantasy and video games - we just don’t talk about it a lot because men are assholes.
Better get my shit packed for Hogwarts the train leaves tomorrow

I’d like to see how accurate this is (which I believe…

I’m constantly asked about my point of view on the rape culture debate when it comes to Once Upon a Time, if usually, I remain silent on the subject, I’m passed across a post that mad me see red.
Of course, nothing I will say will change people’s minds, but again, if there’s people reading 50 shades of Grey thinking they are reading romance, there’s people who will think Hook is a rapist.
The truth is, people think he’s his cartoon character, or just forget about one season of character development. What is, even more serious, is that Hook is shot down in favor of a man like Neal.
To me, Once Upon a Time biggest issue isn’t rape culture, even though Graham’s rape and death is a case. No, my biggest problem with Once Upon a Time is how they handle abuse.
This show is the first one when it comes to portraying abusive relationships with a parent, some of them better handled than others, but also romantic abuse : the relationship between Emma and Neal.
I read a lot of things about how we were supporting the rapist and the one to blame when we took down the victim: Neal
This point is my biggest problem because this fandom isn’t seeing, hell even the writers which is even more problematic, Neal as an abuser when he was portrayed as such, this fandom isn’t seeing Regina as an abuser.
Killian has never been once taken for the victim, the fandom constantly puts him in the baddie position (he wants to get into x’s pants, he’s working for y, he’s a monster)
However, the fandom makes sure to ignore every single interview about his character and everything that has been said about him so far, he’s not just a villain, it’s far more complicated than that.
I’ve read a lot of stupid comments about how Emma was an object, about how she was a victim of Hook’s desires and such things, the thing is, all those comments are stating one same argument: Emma’s agency being brushed off for the sake of his character.
Which leads me to roll my eyes when I’m not screaming, that’s how far people are going and how hard they are closing their eyes, and how fucked up my generation is.
Swanfire is an abusive relationship. Swanthief ended because a man took away a woman’s agency : two men plotted her end without asking her opinion on the subject.
If there’s a man in Emma’s life, who refused her her agency, it’s him. Yet, the fandom praises him as the ultimate hero. Hell, the writers are trying to make us buy he’s the ultimate hero.
Just because Neal doesn’t get the villain etiquette doesn’t mean he can’t be seriously fucked up, and putting it on the back of a “complex character and well written one” makes me stare in horrible wonder: Neal has been the worst character they have ever written, his lack of constitency isn’t enjoyable: much like other characters minus centric episodes, Neal is the one character the fandom spends hours making up fanon headcanons and taking them for accurate.
There’s nothing wrong with imagination, however, placing fanon in the first position when you watch a show is quite serious and stupid : it leads you to comment such as Neal and Emma are perfect and romantic and epic and Hook is a rapist.
I would like to point out, that I’ve read, I’ve seen, people saying, stating that Neal putting Emma to jail is the ultimate romantic gesture, the ultimate sacrifice.
Translate this in real life, you get the biggest asshole on earth abusing a young girl: it’s called a minor being abused by an adult and ending in jail because of his doing.
Yet, in the OUAT fandom, it’s romantic, hell, it’s the ultimate poetic gesture.
i’m just curious now how many “adults” (i use that term carefully because there are some teenagers out there that act more mature than adults) are on tumblr that ship this!
