I saw someone on winteriscoming say that we have moved from Martin’s story to D&D’s story and that’s it’s not necessarily a bad thing, just different. And I feel like ranting. 
The thing is, I do know what they mean. If the show changes a character’s motivations it’s not necessarily bad. It just means that we have two different stories and one isn’t automatically superior. BUT, the story in the books is simply more inclusive. In the books, the Martells are people of colour. We have amazing layered female characters who break traditional fantasy tropes, instead of fulfilling these sexist tropes like in the show. Catelyn is the best example here, I think. In the books, Loras Tyrell is more than every gay stereotype put together. Oberyn is more than his sexuality. The weird offensive ableist beetle story doesn’t exist in the books. In the books, Cersei isn’t raped by the only person she trusts. Brienne calls Jaime a coward, but never “a bloody woman”. Arya never calls most girls idiots. In the books feminine female characters are valued just as much as the female characters who fill traditionally masculine roles.
While flawed and by no means perfect, the books are for everyone. The show is written through the male gaze and mostly for white cishet men. I personally resent D&D taking the books that are empowering to me as a female fantasy fan and turning them into the same tired stereotypical sexist fantasy. And the thing about changing characters’ motivations is that too often on GoT they are changed to the detriment of female characters in a way that takes away their agency. See Sansa plotting her escape with Dontos versus Sansa being dragged away by Dontos like a sack of potatoes. When a change like this is made then I can say it has made the story worse.

TL;DR - D&D’s story isn’t inferior because it differs from the books. D&D’s story is inferior because it’s sexist, racist and gross.

What is 50 shades of grey about? And what's so bad about it?
- Anonymous

anigrrrl2:

aconissa:

50 Shades of Grey was originally fanfiction based on the Twilight series, which was then published as a novel (along with 2 subsequent books). It sold over 100 million copies around the world and topped best-seller lists everywhere. It’s about to be adapted into a film, set to come out early next year.

It follows a college student named Ana Steele, who enters a relationship with a man named Christian Grey and is then introduced to a bastardised and abusive parody of BDSM culture.

While the book is paraded as erotica, the relationship between Ana and Christian is far from healthy. The core mantra of the BDSM community is “safe, sane and consensual”, and 50 Shades is anything but. None of the rules of BDSM practices (which are put in place to protect those involved) are actually upheld. Christian is controlling, manipulative, abusive, takes complete advantage of Ana, ignores safe-words, ignores consent, keeps her uneducated about the sexual practices they’re taking part in, and a multitude of other terrible things. Their relationship is completely sickening and unhealthy.

Basically, “the book is a glaring glamorisation of violence against women,” as Amy Bonomi so perfectly put it. 

It’s terrible enough that a book like this has been absorbed by people worldwide. Now, we have a film that is expected to be a huge box-office success, and will likely convince countless more young women that it’s okay not to have any autonomy in a relationship, that a man is allowed to control them entirely. It will also show many young men that women are theirs to play with and dominate, thus contributing to antiquated patriarchal values and rape culture.

Perfectly said.

I want to go to this exact point and run around it saying “I’m in Sweden!” I’m in Finland!” “I’m in Norway!” until I get tired
i aspire to great things in life

According to Google Maps, that point is in the middle of a small lake.

So we’ll do it in January when it’s frozen.

actually that’s why they’ve helpfully dropped a big-ass cement block with a bridge surrounding it in the middle of the lake: for the express purpose of doing what OP aspires to do

20 years of Power Rangers, 21 seasons, 700+ episodes, and 99 rangers, and all we have to show for it is more MMPR merch. :/

Enough 

teenwolfgossip:

For the fans who’s time, effort, and passion for the show was ridiculed by Jeff Davis and the cast by reading their fanfics, mocking their hard work and love for the characters they portray, it’s time we say enough.

For the fan who asked the cast the innocent question of, “If you could ship literally any pairing that’s not currently canon on the show, who would you ship?” and was then mocked by Dylan O’Brien, who incredulously told the fan “This is the last question in the entire panel,” and was then mocked by Tyler Posey, who told the fan to “Think of a better question,” it’s time we say enough.

For the fans that were told that fanworks depicting two characters could not be signed, while fanworks depicting other pairings are acceptable, it’s time we say enough.

For the Teen Wolf fandom, who have been disrespected repeatedly by the Teen Wolf marketing team and Jeff Davis himself, for the fans that have been used by the powers that be to win polls and then mocked and humiliated once we’re no longer needed, for every person who passionately love this show and then has been shamed for that love by the cast and creators, it’s time we say enough.

It’s time to remind them why they need us.

We are calling for a general Teen Wolf Blackout for Monday’s episode.  We need to reach the producers of the show in a way that they can understand.

What can you do?

  1. Do not tweet anything Teen Wolf related during Monday’s episode.  Do not tweet the actors or the Teen Wolf account.  Do not use any hashtags related to Teen Wolf.
  2. If you have a Nielsen box, do not watch Monday night’s episode on TV. 
  3. Do not reblog the gifs or posts from the Teen Wolf tumblr account.
  4. Do not watch the episode on MTV.com.
  5. Reblog, reblog, reblog.  Spread the word.  Tell your friends, tweet the message prior to Monday’s episode.  

And before anyone asks - this isn’t to make Sterek canon, this has nothing to do with any ship or character, this isn’t to ask for anything plot related in the show.  This is a simple reminder that this show survives because of it’s fans, and we deserved to be treated with respect.

Spread the word.
