I am usually not home, and if I am I am usually not on a computer. It is far easier to access my tumblr or my twitter from my phone.

And I am finding that it is far easier to be in fandom on tumblr, because I can be more a more superficial fan, meaning I love characters and care deeply but don't get get pissy when a show doesn't go my way. I don't have to have a discussion about anything. I give examples under here, and they will piss people off, probably. )

To my Teen Wolf friends, I'll get back into the fandom soon, but to answer a few things! I know a couple of you guys messaged me about the Big Bang, and I meant to get back to you guys but completely forgot. Long story short: three people finished their fics, and one of them was myself. So there is that, which is kind of why it never happened. We had a lot of artists sign up, but with barely any fics, it seemed pointless. It was a difficult time for me to manage it, as well, since work was kicking my ass.

I am going to go mess around with [ profile] teenwolf_slash now and add tags and junk. June 3rd!

You know how people refuse to see logic or the other side of the coin, or how sometimes common courtesy and decency doesn't even occur to them? Sometimes I find that interesting, in a detached, 'what makes this person like that, that they can ignore the world around them' type of way. There's a truly awful lack of empathy and compassion that I can't even get my head around.

Here is a list of the worst of the comments compiled by [ profile] lcsbanana, and I'm linking to that because it's a good introduction, I find, to those who aren't sure of what's going on. The complete lack of sensitivity that she quotes from actual members of fandom, from people I've seen on my friends' flist, is...astounding. I found nothing in the post triggery, but she does link to [ profile] impertinence's brilliant and painful post, which comes with these warnings: "Warning: Very explicit discussion of sexual assault and the nature, anatomy, cause & effect of triggers. Is itself triggery." It's a powerful post. Both of them are (in different ways), and I truly can't understand how this even needs to be discussed. Warnings are necessary, whether they are appreciated or not.

Unrelated, but still sad: apparently Perez Hilton is a giant douchebag. Personally I'm shocked, because he always seemed like such a nice guy when he was forcing celebrities out of the closet and verbally attacking 16 year old girls. Also, when he was recently seen being a enormous hypocrite by telling someone, "You're not a fucking artist; you're a fucking faggot." Also, when he was a hypocrite by calling someone fugly, because heeeeellllllooooo.
