- Girls: *buy merchandise*
- Boys: OMFG fake geek girls! You're just doing this to get attention!
- Girls: *don't buy merchandise*
- Execs: We don't want girls watching our shows, they don't buy the merch.
- Girls: *turn out in massive numbers for comic book movie adaptations*
- Execs: We don't need to make more female-lead movies, girls are already turning out for the white men.
- Girls: *don't watch comic book movies*
- Execs: Why would we make a female-lead superhero movie? No one will watch it! Girls don't even like this stuff!
man, sometimes it really gets me how little poc and non-hetero characters there are in media. like, some folks go on about how hard it is to write them but damn man if you don’t treat them like walking stereotypes and give in to the fact that they are human much like everyone else then MAAAAYBE it would be easier to write that shit
"colin fairway is a rather unassuming man of short stature and messy brown hair. he is a second year engineering student and works part-time at a hardware store. while he often misplaces things, he has a keen memory for music trivia and the odd simpsons quote. he spends his free time building miniature furniture, collecting bent coins, and talking to his grandmother who suffers from dementia. this isn’t a huge problem as it often provides him with the chance to reinvent who he is and spins her a different story about his day with each visit.
he is also gay. while this is a huge part of his life and is greatly important to him it is nowhere near as important as the fact that both he and his grandmother are werewolves on the run from the FBI as they seek to uncover the secret of their werewolf clan hidden deep within yosemite national park.”
there. my writing is terrible and even i can do it.
i want 5 seasons and a movie
