I love seeing that you're a Pokémon fan and haven't played to all generations. I'm a newcomer (been a fan for one year now) and the first game I played to was X. I've always been very insecure about this, especially that recently, someone made me feel bad about my situation. It lead me to questionning whether I should leave the fanbase or not. After seeing the messages you've been getting about this, I don't feel so lonely anymore so Thank You (:
Thank you for the lovely message! I’m glad you’re enjoying the fandom and don’t let the awful snobs get you down! They’re not worth it and to be honest they’re so pathetic considering they feel the need to police what people can and cannot like, they must be lacking in life to feel the need to do it.
You wouldn’t say that a football fan want a true fan because they only watch the matches their team is in, or if they only watch the Premier League and not the Scottish League. It’s insane that the pokemon fandom is full of elitist arseholes but they should just be ignored 😊
I love pirates because they have no concept on albeism. oh you have no leg? here have a peg leg. no hand?? well guess we gotta put a hook on that, give those sons of bitches a surprise. Blind in one eye, put an eyepatch on no one fucking cares, youre deaf??? go man the canons you glorious bastard.They dont care if youre disabled bcus as long as you can fuck shit up they literally dont fucking care.
“These are forms of male aggression that only women see. But even when men are afforded a front seat to harassment, they don’t always have the correct vantage point for recognizing the subtlety of its operation. Four years before the murders, I was sitting in a bar in Washington, D.C. with a male friend. Another young woman was alone at the bar when an older man scooted next to her. He was aggressive, wasted, and sitting too close, but she smiled curtly at his ramblings and laughed softly at his jokes as she patiently downed her drink. ‘Why is she humoring him?’ my friend asked me. ‘You would never do that.’ I was too embarrassed to say: ‘Because he looks scary’ and ‘I do it all the time.’
Women who have experienced this can recognize that placating these men is a rational choice, a form of self-defense to protect against setting off an aggressor. But to male bystanders, it often looks like a warm welcome, and that helps to shift blame in the public eye from the harasser and onto his target, who’s failed to respond with the type of masculine bravado that men more easily recognize.”—

i find it so incredibly attractive when someone is really good at something, like you can play the violin? damn son. you’re a really talented dj? good for you! i don’t care if you talk to me about quantum physics for an hour straight if i can see the passion in you at some point in that hour i’ll think “whoa, this is really hot.”
my life got about a thousand times better once i stopped censoring myself
and by censoring i don’t mean i suddenly embraced indiscriminate swearing; i mean i stopped trying to sugarcoat my past or my feelings; i stopped lying by omission; i stopped having guilty pleasures; i began unabashedly enjoying whatever i liked; i became very honest; i cut out of my life poisonous people and negative ideals, and i am so, so much happier for it
love and support and celebrate fat girls who don’t have a booty or like in general fat girls with the fat in places that never get celebrated p l e a s e for the love of everything that is good in this world
like let’s not pretend curvy is a synonym for fat curvy is literally just this one specific socially acceptable way to be fat and I am getting increasingly frustrated about it
it’s fascinating to me that when i tell people i go to a women’s college, the questions they ask me about the experience all pertain to men (are they allowed to visit? do you hate them?), as if it is so wild and unfathomable that an academic and social environment could be focused on anything other than men.
