Bookish But Corruptible
Just a queer college theatre student blogging about fandoms and feelings.
Les Mis, Star Trek, and others. Cute animals, musing about life, liberal politics, queer shit, writing, and whatever strikes my fancy.
I respond to many names, but it’s Jimmy, if you must know.

i want to create a tv show about a group of friends where they’re all queer except the one token cishet friend who’s only there to say stereotypical “straight” things for laughs like “macklemore got me into rap” and “my mom and i got into a fight because she wouldn’t buy me a fourth obey snapback”
Or we could just stop stereotyping people.
i dream of a day when “what are your pronouns” is as customary to ask as “what’s your name”
so i just imagined roman mythology like a bunch of deviantart Original characters:
Rome: And here’s my OC, Mars.
Greece: …Isn’t that Ares?
Rome: No he’s completely original, see, his name is Mars.
Greece: You just mirrored Ares, changed the hair colour an-
Rome: MARS IS MY ORIGINAL CHARACTER DO NOT STEAL
before u say i am stoling this mythos let me explain u a thing
Independent Lens, PBS
“Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines” (via ihopeyoucontinue4ever)
It also means that 97 percent of how men are portrayed in media are decided on by men. Something to remind MRAs and their ilk of when they complain about the stereotype of men as inept slobs, bad fathers, etc in media and advertising.
Men have the power. So when we men are shat on by the powers that be you don’t get to try and blame women for that.
