Tumblr’s Les Mis fandom(although it has some great writers and artists) bastardizes Hugo’s book and the proof is that most of the fans care more about the sexuality of the barricade boys rather than the actual genius of the book(the different themes, characters etc.)
As much as I love E/R(it is my OTP), Enjonine(which I dislike cause it makes no sense to me and most fics I’ve read of them are horribly ooc) is not queer erasure because hey, we don’t know if Enjolras is queer. He chose to be celibate, which leaves the possibility that he miht have been a heterosexual.
Please stop hating on Cosette and idolizing Eponine who in books had the ‘if I can’t have him, no one can’ mentality and would rather see Marius die than see him with Cosette.
I cringe at some fics because of how they portray Les Amis. Jehan was a romantic(just read more on 19th century romanticism) poet which means he won’t be this optimistic, bubbly lad all fics have because poets who followed the Romanticism movement were melanholic which reflects on their work. And also by making him feminine(I have nothing against that) you perpetuate gender stereotypes. Of course only women or feminine men would like poetry and flowers.
Stop with Eppie Sue. In the books she has no teeth and is a drunk and is insane(which make makes her more interesting tbh). She was not the poor, selfless girl abused at home very severely and by Patron-Minette(hello, she worked with them and it is implied that Montparnasse and her had at least a mild friendship).

I know tumblr hates the military (speficially Americans and the American military), but damn. There are so many untrue posts about how the military works and what it does. Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but it concerns me how many users believe things that simply are not correct and don’t even try to seek out experience or truth before hitting the reblog button.

asexuality is a sexuality
just like silence is a sound
just like atheism is a religion
just like bald is a hair color

Although asexuality 100% deserves recognition and support (just like any sexuality)  It, by definition is the lack of sexual interest in anyone. It is however a sexual orientation. Some people don’t know the difference.

I don’t deny that asexuality is a legitimate (albeit very rare) orientation. But I think most people identifying as “demisexual,” are putting a label on what is actually a very common inclination just so they can claim minority status.
I know it is very controversial to question any orientation on tumblr, but there is a point when the labels get ridiculous. I’m not complaining because the number of labels is “confusing” - I’m complaining because it is bordering on offensive to come up with excuses to try to worm your way into the gender/sexual minority community, which is quite honestly what this is. And I say this as someone who fits the demisexual definition: 
I have never experienced sexual attraction to someone without first forming a strong emotional connection with them. 
Neither have many other teenagers, which is one of the reasons I think the term is so popular on tumblr: it gives ordinary people the chance to feel special. When I first read the definition of demisexuality, I felt excited because I never realized that I was part of the LGBTQIA(etc) community before. Believe me - I understand the desire to be something other than a boring old “cishet.” But in reality there are millions of people outside of tumblr who would kill to be just that, and I’m not going to discredit their struggles by waving a rainbow flag and yelling “DEMISEXUAL PRIDE!”
In short: Everyone experiences sex and sexual attraction differently; having a slightly lower libido does not warrant a separate orientation nor put you on the same level as the millions of people around the world who suffer daily for theirs.
The fact that there will be people ranting at me for writing this proves my point: that people would rather fight for recognition of their own made-up identity than take a stand against the oppression of real ones.

While the UCSB shooter (I will not reward him by naming him) was misogynistic, that is not the reason he shot people. He was crazy. Yet SJ activists focus on his misogynistic beliefs as if that’s the reason he did what he did, because that fits into their world view. Yet at the same time, those same SJ activists whitewash and explain away times when people’s beliefs actually are the main things that’s responsible for their violence, like in the case of Islamist terrorists.

I’m so tired of the gender-switched photos of Disney characters, both male and female. They are all over the internet! At first it was kind of interesting, but now it grew so old! Some of the editions are even grotesque. It is not that I am not tolerant towards gender-related topics, but I just don’t enjoy those pictures.

I don’t watch AHS, so I really don’t know much about Evan Peters, but people are saying that there should be a remake of A Clockwork Orange starring Peters. I’ll admit, he somewhat looks like Malcolm McDowell but I seriously hope that they don’t do this. No one can recreate Malcolm’s legendary portrayal of Alex, nor can any director recreate Kubrick’s signature editing/directing style. A Clockwork Orange is a classic, and 99% of the time remakes never do the original film justice. Some would argue that remaking a film is to make it from a different POV, but honestly, A Clockwork Orange doesn’t need it. It’s a great film in itself.

Warning: Spoilers ahead
Of all the 3D movies Walt Disney Animation Studios has made, Wreck-It Ralph is the Magnum Opus, not Tangled or Frozen. Everyone is going on about how Frozen was so feminist because “Anna was saved by her sister  instead of by a man.”, “Anna didn’t need a Prince Charming and didn’t get married like other princesses”, or that “it proves men are evil and manipulative” blah blah blah. I guess everyone forgot how Vanellope doesn’t even have a love interest. She didn’t pursue racing to be a princess, to impress a prince, or for love, she did it because she wanted to accomplish her dreams. She even fends off King Candy, the main antagonist who tries to get her destroyed. I mean, yeah Ralph is the one who truly destroys him, but it’s not common for an animated movie to show a little girl fighting an authority figure on her own. When she finds out she was a princess all along, instead of accepting it, she ditches the frilly dress for her casual clothes because being a princess isn’t who she is, she as herself is who she is and settles for the title of “President”. She’s more empowering than Anna, Elsa, and Rapunzel ever was and WIR was better than Tangled and Frozen.
