Yeah, that’s a douchey way to start a response. But on the other hand, I think people have a right to know what they’ve done that’s bothering people? He’s trying to ask but it’s not helpful if no one will tell him what he’s done wrong.

i cant imagine people havent i mean hes. super well known and his blog is super well known and he said he gets a lot of asks re: transphobia in his reply and theres no way all of those are totally contextless “youre transphobic trash” or w/e, especially considering that according to green, most of them were nonanon. like seriously if youre going to send anon hate youre gonna send it on anon, nonanon asks are for something approximating civil discourse.

and still all he says is “i hope im not transphobic”? he hopes. really.

and im fucking angry about the comma splice comment like theres a difference between correcting spelling or something (ive been known for the occasional passive-aggressive “[sic]” myself) and “correcting” something that isnt even standardised in style guides like seriously youre gonna pick on that?

also the comma splice in question was actually a pretty cool example of tumblr’s ever-evolving written grammar; it was how youd type tags!!!

#you are a pretentious prick who is also a transphobic piece of trash #go to hell

now i mean i dont know near enough about green to be capable of agreeing or disagreeing, and if i agreed i wouldnt have gone in his askbox and said it (im way more into vagueblogging), but seriously thats a really cool orthography and i wouldnt mind seeing more of it!! 

i cant believe john green starts out the answer to an ask accusing him of pretentiousness with “you have a comma splice”. i cannot believe.

in which one of the most infamously queer fetishising fandoms has more fics for a het ship than the entire archive has transfics

Don’t look at me. I do what he does, just slower.

This scene was actually when I went from feeling more or less neutral on Joan to actively disliking her.

Because wow, that was patronizing.

I loved that scene in Elementary.

1) Firstly, because it immediately deconstructs the “hero throws and breaks something in frustration” cliche (Sherlock throwing a glass slide in HoB, anyone?) it might even be seen as a parody of that cliche.

2) Secondly, because the dynamic is different between a man and a woman than it would be between two women or two men, the visual of a man smashing something in a temper in front of a woman can be taken as threatening or borderline abusive. Joan Watson immediately shows that she is not intimidated by Holmes’ behavior.

3) Lastly? One of the running themes of Elementary is the deconstruction of Sherlock Holmes as the solitary, antisocial genius, and his becoming a member of a community. Holmes’ gifts are given their due respect, but no one in Elementary plays the game of Because Sherlock Holmes is a Bloody Genius He Can Do Whatever He Wants So There. When Sherlock goes after Moriarty (“M”), Captain Gregson suspends him. When Sherlock doesn’t want to talk about his addiction, Alfredo says “You’ve got to get over yourself.” And when Sherlock behaves like a spoiled child, Joan tells him “Use your words.”

You see Joan patronizing Sherlock. I see a member of Sherlock’s community teaching him how to behave like an adult member of that community.

Additionally, Watson’s done good work for a number of years as a sober companion, not a manchild enabler. It’s quite literally her job to deconstruct people’s shitty self-defeating habits and demonstrate that there are better ways to live your life. She’s not in the business of humoring anyone or playing along with their tantrums, she’s in the business of fixing them. And what she does works! It gets spelled out explicitely in the text of the show: Sherlock himself admits that what’s changed about him, for the better, is her. 

Stop giving me brilliant ideas for a role-swap fic. You’re a bad influence.

no im a fantastic influence do you have a skype we should discuss more of them

oh dear its time for my monthly bout of will someone please write domestic sam/ruby in hell fic. or sam&amy where they did end up running away together and accidentally create the nonhuman version of the roadhouse. or jess-lives-sam-dies fic where she ends up hunting with bela and meg. im not actually that picky mostly just if it passes the bechdel test and doesnt involve dean winchester and preferably has several trans characters im good. please i dont have the time or extensive canon knowledge required to write these things but i desperately want them help me out here.

I think the best assesment of the scene I ever saw was in heydon’tjudgeme's recap:

'I imagine Pentecost is at the same emotional level as watching your kid’s first football game and getting interrupted because your dumb nephew blew up the concession stand.'

what if the new animal species we discover each year are actually being dropped off by aliens? like they have an over abundance of yeti crabs or something and so they brought some to earth because they knew we’d get a kick out of this
