imagine reading a book of all the lies you’ve told 

IDK what kind of lives you all are leading, but this sounds like the boringest shit. “Yes I sent that email.” “Yeah, I like your outfit.” “I was sick.” “My mom said no” “No I wasn’t crying.” “Yes I read the Terms of Service”

what about a book of all the lies people have told you

Oh how the tables have tabled

‘Men get raped and molested,’ should be a whole sentence. If you have to tack on the word ‘too,’ then you’re using the experience of male victims to silence females instead of giving them their own space.

We went to the party, and, as I figured, some of the guests laughed and made comments. One said to me, “Do you think this is funny? There are kids here. You want them to see this?” Another said, “You want him to be gay?”  

And I stayed calm. And I explained to them the best I could that there is no correlation between kids cross-dressing and being gay. And if he is gay, it’s not because of anything I did. It’s because he’s gay. And maybe it’s a stage. And maybe it’s not. But either way, I don’t want him to ever feel like he wasn’t able to express himself because his parents didn’t support him. And some understood. And some, trapped by religion or ignorance, gave us the stank face. 

Plenty of people are supportive. They’ll see my kids — Sydney with her long dirty blonde hair, and Asher with his short dark hair, and say, “I love your daughter’s pixie cut.” When I tell them he’s my son, they smile and say, “I love it.” They also apologize for confusing his gender, but I tell them, “Don’t apologize. He’s in a purple dress with sparkly shoes. How would you know?” I know there are parents who get worked up when you confuse their kids’ gender, but I’m not one of them.

I get home before my wife most nights, so I was taking the kids out to walk our dog. They were dressing up in different outfits, my daughter treating Asher like her doll, as she tried various dresses, shoes, and headbands on him. And then Sydney told me she wanted me to wear a dress, too — “Oh my god, it will be so funny.”

I said, “No,” but she kept begging. I said, “People will laugh at me.” She said, “If they do, I’ll tell them to go away.” And I couldn’t argue with that, as I squeezed myself into Carrie’s most flexible dress. We walked the dog on our block, and the pleasure my kids took in seeing their dad go out of his comfort zone trumped the humiliation I felt.

Carrie pulled up to the house, and I saw her slacked jaw from the end of the street. She laughed. She took a picture. And she told me I better not rip her dress. And then we all went for a pizza.

why do you hate Malia?

man i’m about to go so in depth with this

when malia was first introduced, i was so excited. cute werecoyote girl who would have to work through killing 50% of her family and being a coyote since she was nine? YES PLEASE

and then everything went to shit and she became my second most hated female character of all time (but climbing to number one so go her!!)

friendly reminder that malia’s first interaction with stiles is punching him in the face!!!!

and even though she’s been a rabid coyote since she was 9, she’s totally ready to sleep with stiles???? what?????

then in this new episode, she was a totAL fucking asshole, which everyone excused with the fact that she’s been a coyote since she was nine.

BULLSHIT.

if malia’s mind is well developed enough to have sex, reasonable knowledge of personal grooming and makeup, get checked out of a mental hospital, know how to dirty dance, have a romantic relationship, and go to a fucking high school after being rabid since she was 9, I THINK SHE CAN AFFORD TO LEARN HUMAN DECENCY.

malia made it clear that she didn’t give a flying FUCK about scott, lydia, or kira, only stiles, and that everyone (excluding stiles) could live or die- she didn’t give a shit

she lets stiles excuse her shitty behavior while making it clear that not only is she not sorry, but that she’s not going to even try to change

she forced scott to talk about allison (THE RECENTLY DECEASED LOVE OF HIS FUCKING LIFE) when everyone else (particularly scott) was clearly uncomfortable with that

stiles is written EXTREMELY ooc in order for their relationship to work. he doesn’t defend his friends from her rudeness, and makes excuses for her every five minutes 

they literally have stiles like: “stop being scared lydia!!!111 my werecoyote gf who has healing powers and kira with her might be in trouble of her own fault!!!!111 yeah scott please explain about allison when i clearly know how much that broke your fucking heart!!!11 i love you malia!!!!11”

here’s a lovely actual quote from Malia’s actress on her and stiles relationship:

"Malia’s very aggressive. She’ll physically grab him, and that means she loves him, as opposed to brushing his face with her hands. She’s more likely to punch him; that’s her way of showing love. It’s like Malia’s the big spoon, and Stiles is the little spoon…he’s willing to shrink around her."

ARE YOU KIDDING ME???? that’s fucking disgusting, because that’s ABUSE. “wow, she punches him instead of hugging him!!!! how romantic!!!” shut the fuck up, that’s gross as shit

and a real relationship is where two people bloom around each other. SHRINKING AROUND SOMEONE IS NOT LOVE OR EVEN REMOTELY HEALTHY BYE

other than being rude as fuck, sexualized, or there for stiles to act completely different so they can kiss, there is no fucking point to malia tate. she is gross and disrespectful and yes, i hate her. 

give me more kira, who is patient and intelligent and a fucking beautiful person. give me more ass kicking, name taking braedon, who doesn’t care what other people think and keeps fighting no matter what. give me more lydia martin, who lost her best friend in the entire world just two months ago and who is having to pretend like she is okay

give me back allison argent, my warrior queen. give me bacj erica reyes, who  had a heart wrapped in armor but still managed to love others so fiercely. give me back cora hale, who didn’t take anybody’s shit and believed in pack. 

until then, i’ll be over here, slam dunking malia tate and her shittiness into the trash where they belong

You know what? This is pretty harsh, but I’m going to reblog it, because so far the show’s given me nothing to indicate I shouldn’t agree with this analysis of her character. We’re specifically told in interview after interview that we’re supposed to find her selfishness and abrasiveness charming and funny, but she hasn’t earned that. She’s done nothing to indicate that we should care about her, and, in fact, the more present she is on screen (and the more we hear about her in interviews), the less I like her. That’s not the right kind of progress for a new primary cast member to be making.

And I’m glad that particular quote about her relationship with Stiles was included. Setting up this epic new romance as a situation where someone makes a character we love “willing to shrink around her" isn’t something I have any desire to embrace. Being a strong, independent, powerful, stubborn, even amoral woman is all well and good. But making the other partner shrink or become less or welcome a punch in the face as an indication of affectionisn’t a mark of a healthy relationship. 

I’m not going to get into shipping discussions, because that’s a tiring process and everybody has their opinions and their way of reading character interactions. So this isn’t about whether another relationship is better or worse than Stalia. But there’s something particularly unnerving when the actress herself describes a growing relationship as:

"He’s who she lives for, really. It sounds kind of desperate and pathetic in human terms — in high school, you shouldn’t put so much stock to someone of the opposite sex. You need to grow into who you are before you can fully be there for somebody else. But, that being said, this is a supernatural show. And Malia doesn’t have a family." (x)

First of all, Malia has a father. Has this already been forgotten? And no, I’m not talking about Peter. I’m talking about the father who grieved for her and the rest of their family for 8 (?) years before finding out she was still alive. Are they seriously going to just ignore the fact that he ever existed? I’m not the person to talk to about healthy relationships with your father, so sure, there can be some distance and complications there, and maybe she doesn’t feel like she knows or can trust him, but are we actually forgetting that he exists at all?

Secondly, in what world (supernatural or not) does this sound like a healthy basis for a relationship? I’m sorry, but setting something in a more-than-human environment doesn’t mean you need to throw away reason, logic, or emotional well-being. Jeff Davis is the one who said in previous interviews, years ago when I still thought he was a reasonable person and a writer and show-runner I respected, that he didn’t want Teen Wolf to become Twilight. Isn’t that exactly what’s happening with this kind of frighteningly co-dependent, weirdly abusive language?

A girl coming out of a feral state and learning how to be a human teenager is a fascinating idea with so many possibilities. She’s probably not going to be very good at romance, and may well latch onto one person while having absolutely no interest in anyone else’s well-being. That’s okay. That’s setting up a different kind of character, and it’s great to have a diversity of non-cookie-cutter females in the cast, in particular. But setting this kind of dynamic up as something utterly positive that we should be whole-heartedly supporting disturbs me. This is supposed to be the ideal, end-game relationship?

I won’t go (again) into my absolute, unremitting disgust with Eichen House and the introduction of their relationship, but nothing I’ve seen or heard thus far has made me feel like they’ve progressed in a healthier, more balanced direction. There’s an obsessive element to it, and a lot of other dynamics that personally don’t appeal to me in the slightest.

For example: The way Stiles talks to her like she’s a child, yet we’re supposed to simultaneously think of her as a sexy 17 year old we want to see hooking up with him. The way she’s willing to abandon the rest of the pack - people he loves and would die for - at a moment’s notice and glue herself to his side despite barely knowing him. The way we’re supposed to swallow the “mates” idea as a convenient explanation for their lack of chemistry and build-up. It’s supernatural! They’re mates! They’re meant to be together, so fuck what we’ve actually SHOWN you, just love them already.

I don’t love Malia Tate. I don’t love Stalia. Maybe I’ll change my mind as the season goes on. After all, we barely know anything about her. But that’s half my point. You can’t fling a new character into the mix, screw up her introduction in possibly the worst and most offensive episode the show will ever produce, and then complain when we aren’t sold on her from her first snarky comment and queerbaiting dance sequence in Season 4. I’m not buying what you’re selling, Teen Wolf. Maybe throw that $50k at me from another angle.

I’d also like to say that it’s complete and utter bullshit for anyone to say that we either a) don’t like Malia because she’s a female character & we’re being misogynistic or b) we don’t like her because she’s a female character paired with Stiles.

While internalized misogyny does happen, it’s used as an excuse in cases like this to avoid the real truth. And that is that female characters are hated because Hollywood has proven time and time again that they don’t know how to write women.

Jeff Davis, specifically, has proven that he doesn’t know how to write women.

Jennifer Blake, for example, was supposed to be an avenging angel. She was supposed to be sacrificing people to gain power so that she could avenge her pack. So that she could stop the Alpha Pack from destroying another pack’s life.

In the end, she was reduced to a vain woman whose only concern was that she wasn’t pretty anymore.

Lydia Martin, as another example, was supposed to be the ice cold beauty queen with a secret passion for math and science. In season one, her knowledge of Molotov cocktails is what helped bring Peter down and she did all of that while still making it clear that she was HBIC and she wasn’t taking anyone’s shit.

She has since been watered down. Her rude, take charge attitude has been exchanged for the helpless damsel in distress. Her smarts have been left behind to make room for crying, saying, “I don’t know,” and the occasional sassy quip.

When she walked into a room in season one, you knew she was there. Now she’s a wall ornament; a pretty piece of scenery or furniture.

We’re supposed to think JD’s female characters are fresh and progressive, that they’re strong females with independent storylines, that they all have something to contribute beyond whatever connection they have to the men in the show. 

Except they don’t.

Braeden stands as the only truly independent female in the entire show and yet in order to bring her from cameo/recurring character status to secondary character, they’ve sacrificed that to make her a love interest this season.

Malia could have been an independent female character. She has no connection to the pack outside of the supernatural; she’s a coyote and they’re werewolf or werewolf-adjacent.

Her independence was sacrificed for an unnecessary, unhealthy relationship that’s being painted as perfectly acceptable and healthy because that’s what the writers of this show do.

Because none of them know how to write independent female characters. None of them see the value in a female character if she isn’t a love interest.

Which brings me to my next point and that is: you’re damn right I’m pissed that she’s with Stiles.

I’m pissed on behalf of yet another female character who’s been failed and I’m pissed on behalf of Stiles’ bisexuality, which has been teased at for four seasons but never explored.

I don’t hate Malia because I’m internally misogynistic, I hate her because the men writing her are and I shouldn’t have to put up with that.

Carefully notice the lack of logical thinking here. She’s not even following the line of questioning.

When privilege is in question, no matter how ignorant or intelligent a person is, they tend to retreat to illogical arguments that are easily refuted and they kinda resemble toddlers, except I actually like toddlers and toddlers make more sense.

And honestly, many White women would not tolerate such ridiculous arguments, lack of empathy and self-centeredness ("why bring up race if it’s not a problem for you?") if the question was gender and a White man posed this foolishness to them. They wouldn’t tolerate it. They would easily expose the ignorance. But magically when privilege (in this case White privilege) is in question, all bets are off.

The last GIF explains my life in so many ways… *rolls eyes*

The weirdest thing is that though this is from a satirical show (The Daily Show) and meant to discuss racism with humor, these are the real answers that most Whites give daily, so I couldn’t really laugh this time. I just felt tired.

the perils of trying to communicate this to white people in debates. in the many debates I’ve had the chance of witnessing, race comes up about 80% of the time, when discussing this in a diverse setting. and for whites, sometimes their mindset is ‘oh, why are they pulling the race card.’ but for blacks it’s, ‘understand that purely based off of what I look like, I will experience something totally different, give me the chance to explain.’

Before I even read the subtitles I knew everything I needed to know. The young white woman hardly brushed her hair this morning and is dressed extremely casually, but she is still credible enough to be asked a question. The black women have to have their hair pulled back neatly and be dressed professionally to achieve the same level of respect.

"White privilege affects every aspect of your life."

I think social & economic status has a lot to do with how people treat you also. Like a poor looking white man will be treated differently than a rich white man dress to the 9s. Same for a poor black man, and a rich black man. People treat Jay-Z differently than say some guy that lives on the street. It is not always about race. It is sometimes the economic & social status that you put off that you belong to. 

A few notes:

1) keep in mind how socioeconomic and racial/ethnic circumstances are closely related.

2) yes, in general, Jay Z is probably going to be treated better than the average black man due to his account balance and power, but is he going to be treated better than a white man? Not necessarily. Recall what happened when Oprah was out of the country admiring a handbag. She was treated like a criminal even though she’s more rich that most of us can even imagine. Jay Z and Beyoncé were investigated for their trip to Cuba even though their trip was approved by the US Dept of Treasury. Do you know how many White Americans travel to Cuba without approval? Where are their investigations?

Chris Rock, one of the most important and well paid Black comedians of our time, said this: “In my neighborhood, there are four Black people. Hundreds of houses, four Black people. Who are these Black people? Well, there’s me, Mary J. Blige, Jay-Z and Eddie Murphy. Only Black people in the whole neighborhood. So let’s break it down, let’s break it down: me, I’m a decent comedian. I’m a’ight. Mary J. Blige, one of the greatest R&B singers to ever walk the Earth. Jay-Z, one of the greatest rappers to ever live. Eddie Murphy, one of the funniest actors to ever, ever do it. Do you know what the White man who lives next door to me does for a living? He’s a f**king dentist! He ain’t the best dentist in the world…he ain’t going to the Dental Hall of Fame…he don’t get plaques for getting rid of plaque. He’s just a yank-your-tooth-out dentist. See, the Black man gotta fly to get to somethin’ the White man can walk to!”

White people always play this shit. “It’s about class, not race!” STFU. 

Race and class are VERY interconnected. And it’s NOT poor white people out here being killed and harassed by the police, it’s poor Black communities.
