*runs in circles* OMG OMG OMG
The grinch had 2 moms and no one ever said anything about it
the grinch isn’t a good example of a child successfully being brought up by homosexuals
Also, real talk, like
I’d personally really like Katrina to be revealed as legit evil because this perpetually-bewildered, powerful-but-somehow-mostly-useless thing she’s got going on isn’t endearing or interesting to me. I blame shoddy writing for that more than I do the character because, yes, I *am* interested in having as many compelling and well-rounded female characters as possible. They’re just dropping the ball with her, imo.
But I don’t really expect the show to follow through with that.
I think the best I, at least, can hope for is that at some point she has to sacrifice herself or move her spirit on or whatever to thwart Moloch’s plan with her in the scheme of the apocalypse and does so to save the world as well as let Ichabod move onward with his life.
Honestly, I think (at least, I think this is the way quality writing would go) Ichabod and Abbie are the purest definition of soulmates and if they choose to just off Katrina instead of developing her (likely) then I hope she can do to save the world and recognizing that Ichabod belongs in this time with Abbie, his witness partner/soul mate/etc.
Cause that would be pretty badass, honestly.
Still frustrated that Nick was the one that gave Abbie CPR and not Ichabod.
Damn you, 1700’s, probably not having that technique yet maybe I assume.
I’ve been on Tumblr for 387 days. I’ve made 824 posts. I currently have 61,348 followers.
During my time on this platform I’ve posted many things that were silly, many that were heartfelt and a number of things (either posted here or posted on Twitter and referenced here by others) that were problematic.
Yesterday was an example of the latter.
During last night’s live tweeting of Sleepy Hollow I made a post that, although in no way my intention, overtly contributed to the rape culture climate that normalizes and trivializes very serious and very real instances in which people (mostly women) are victimized.
Intention, of course, does not mitigate offense.
What I wrote was not OK and without qualification or equivocation I apologize.
I’m especially thankful to those of you who reached out to me personally to share your thoughts and engaged in an active dialogue about this issue.
I also appreciate the perspective of those who continue to throw shade, who are disappointed, who think I’m full of shit/insincere/misogynistic/have no business in fandom/try too hard/etc.
In the words of carnivaloftherandom (whose post on the need to include more diverse voices on this issue was VERY informative to me - http://carnivaloftherandom.tumblr.com/post/80011851294/rainn-has-become-part-of-rape-culture) I will endeavor to FAIL BETTER.
Thanks for your time in reading this note.
I realize that though I am a victim of rape, I cannot speak for everyone who has suffered it and/or the culture in one way or another. I also am not the person that decides what is passable and what isn’t (if, indeed, that person exists) and I don’t even know what the original tweet was that inspired this.
I do think, however, that comedy is both wonderful and tricky and that it is so easy to get carried away with oneself. Otherwise good people can end up unintentionally making light of very severe issues via humor because they don’t know any better, don’t realize the gravity of what they are saying or are simply getting caught up in the euphoria that is humor and don’t think twice about what they’re saying. It’s easy to do that because comedy is, after all, about not taking things too seriously. Of course, therein lies the problem.
Ultimately, I think all of us have done this in some way or another at least once- that is, unintentionally offended through humor, even if it was just personal to one person. We may not even realize it, but I would bet money that just about everyone has at one time or another.
Telling an offensive joke doesn’t really tell me as much about as person as does their response that follows. As I said, just about anyone can get caught up in the spirit of humor- only a select few people will be decent enough to realize the error of their ways, swallow their pride and apologize.
So I appreciate Mr. Jones’ follow-up to his mistake and I, personally, don’t think there’s any harm in giving him a pass. He’s a wonderful, talented man that interacts with his fans more than just about any actor I’ve known. I believe him when he says he regrets his words.
These two girls they make quite a pair
they will come from your worst nightmare
they will haunt your soul forever,
and now when you see pink, you’re going to think
