Hey, you're in my blog. Hope you're enjoying yourself. My Fic Recs, as most of you know, have moved to effyhoneybee; I am still taking fic rec requests; I am still taking commissions; and I am still doing writing challenge.

EVERYONE STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING RIGHT NOW AND READ THIS BECAUSE HOLY SHIT MY WHOLE LIFE JUST CHANGED FOR THE BETTER.

So apparently in addition to running Archive of Our Own and providing legal advocacy to fans who run up against plagiarism accusations, the Organization for Transformative Works also publishes a peer-reviewed academic journal called Transformative Works and Cultures that is dedicated to promoting scholarship about fanworks and practices. This journal is 100% free to access and has been publishing 2-3 volumes (each containing 15-18 articles, essays, interviews, and book reviews) per year since 2008. 

Why is this so fucking exciting? For one thing, academia has a terrible habit of being increeeedibly sloooow to discuss new ideas — partly due to the very long turnaround time necessary to get articles published. By contrast, “Transformative Works and Cultures” is super up-to-date and teaming with topics that are actually relevant to modern fandom.

Want to read an academic article about female fans being “fridged” in comic book culture? Done. Interested in learning about the societal implications of mpreg within fanfiction/fanart? Here you go. Want to learn more about race and ethnicity in fandom? Well, would you look at that. Feel a mighty need to read a specially-conducted interview with Orlando Jones about producer/fan interactions in “Sleepy Hollow”? Holy butts the show only came out in 2013 and they already have this what the hell.

And all of this — all of the knowledge, all of the analysis, all of the academic credibility being added to fannish ideas — is 100% free to access.

Transformative Works and Cultures is doing fandom an incredible service: by giving a voice to people within fandom, by preserving the discussions and ideas that were important to fannish culture at certain points in time, by emphasizing our significance as a subculture — and all the while doing it on our own terms.

These are fans working hard to give legitimacy to other fans, and if you don’t think that’s rad as hell then I don’t even know what to tell you.

Are you homophobic?

dynastylnoire:

jadathedirector:

No not at all. I’m don’t ‘support’ the lifestyle, but I don’t hate them, or discriminate against them. Jesus still loves them, so I do too.

the christian way to say you’re homophobic.

No no no no no

homophobia is the word you use for the bigots who treat them like shit, who condemn the lifestyle, who will go to lengths to spit on them and their partners either verbally or physically or literally (gross), who will ignore someone for years after they find out that person isn’t straight even though they’ve been talking for years prior

homophobia is the word you use in the context of AN EXTREME AND IRRATIONAL AVERSION TO HOMOSEXUALITY AND HOMOSEXUAL PEOPLE (every dictionary to ever define the word in the history of it’s existence)

my mother is strongly religious, she does not agree with homosexuality nor does she support it but she still hangs around my sister (lesbian) and her partner, she still loves me even though I came out as pansexual, we still have movie night and family night and spend holidays together. she has religious reasons for gays not to get married but she won’t be bothered by it when it happens. she is NOT homophobic in the least even though she doesn’t support it.

WHAT IM TRYING TO SAY IS THAT YES YOU WILL HAVE THE HOMOPHOBIC PERSON TRYING TO DENY THEIR HOMOPHOBIA BY SAYING SOMETHING LIKE THIS BUT NOT EVERYBODY WHO SAYS THIS IS HOMOPHOBIC

It’s like saying “I don’t support the usage the guns but I don’t hate the people who use them, I just don’t like the effects they cause” (me personally summarizing my own thoughts for guns)

Just because I’m against the use of guns doesn’t mean I won’t want to be around them. I can around them all damn day. I can even shoot one if I was so inclined. But, wait, I don’t support them… does that mean I’m Hoplophobic? (neologism originally coined to describe an irrational aversion to weapons but is now mostly used to describe the irrational fear of firearms or an armed citizen) NO IT DOESN’T IT JUST MEANS THAT I DON’T SUPPORT SOMETHING THAT IS A THING

Basically, DO NOT ASSUME SOMEONE’S SOCIAL, POLITICAL, ECONOMICAL, ETC-ICAL, VIEWS UNTIL YOU HAVE SUFFICIENT PROOF THAT THEY ACTUALLY VIEW THINGS THAT WAY

Maybe that was a weird wording: DO NOT ACCUSE SOMEONE OF BEING HOMOPHOBIC JUST BECAUSE THEY DON’T SUPPORT IT.

how game of thrones should end

#khal drogo just #descends from the heavens #on a flaming stallion #punches everyone in the face #and sits his fine dothraki ass down on the iron throne #until daenerys shows up #then he stands #dusts the seat off a bit #and steps aside for his khalessi

I will reblog this until it happens
