please stop putting text posts over tv show characters i Beg
Okay, I finally figured out what bothers me about people who make fun of other people (almost always teenage girls, usually younger ones like 13-15) for being attracted to/expressing attraction towards Benedict Cumberbatch. Like the whole ‘why would you ever want that horse-faced alien ew’ and saying ‘well at least I’m not like those weird Benadryl Cucumberface fangirls’
And it’s this: you are literally mocking a teenage girl for an expression of her sexuality.
The sexuality, opinions, and desires of teenage girls are already so vilified by our culture, our media, and our sex education… like, why do you need to contribute to that by acting like she’s somehow weird or vapid or inferior for thinking an actor is hot? Like it’s even worse because many teenage girls think that actor is hot? Like it’s worse still because the actor doesn’t look ‘typically attractive’, although obviously that doesn’t stop a huge number of people from thinking he’s attractive anyway?
We can make fun of the name - it’s a funny name. We can critique his personal views, or things he has said, or even call him a horse-faced Martian on your own time or whatever floats your boat. But the moment you put your opinion of his appearance up against the opinion of a teenage girl and act like that somehow makes you superior, I’m gonna take an issue with that. Thinking a celebrity is ugly does not make you some kind of higher-minded individual. And attacking thirteen-year-old girls for not agreeing with you kind of makes you the opposite.
So STOP DOING IT.
No man, you don’t understand.
What if it bites me and it dies?
that means you’re poisonous. jesus christ, nate, learn to read.
What if it bites itself and I die?
What if it bites me and someone else dies?
That’s correlation, not causation.
what if we bite each other and neither of us die
oh my god
this is still my favorite text post collaboration ever
Whoa. Anna, you look different
It took me like five minutes of figure out what was different.
