in an industry where black males are seen as aggressive and monstrous, the character who is literally ‘a monster’ is a sensitive yet level headed kid. the fandom needs to talk about Boyd. always.
#I WANT THIS ON EVERY FUCKING TEEN WOLF BLOG #fuckers lets talk about how Boyd is 1000x more sensitive than Isaac #that doesn’t happen on TV shows okay #and then he gets turned werewolf and he is STILL extremely sensitive #but Boyd is calm and level headed for the most part okay #I just wanna point out that Boyd is the exact opposite of every stereotype set out for black males #WHICH IS WHY I need Boyd to be talked about in the fandom #which is why Boyd is an amazing character to have on a show about monsters #the others are constantly aggressive trying to fight their way through problems #but Boyd does A LOT of sitting and watching
depression is when you don’t really care about anything
anxiety is when you care too much about everything
and having both is just like whatHaving both is staying in bed because you don’t want to go to school and then panicking because you don’t want to fail. Having both is wanting to go see your friends so you don’t lose them all, then staying home in bed because you don’t want to make the effort. Having both is insanely hard and sucks to deal with.
Character Alphabet | B | Buffy Summers
They’re trapped in here. Terrified. Meat for the beast, and there’s nothing they can do but wait. That’s all they’ve been doing for days. Waiting to be picked off. Having nightmares about monsters that can’t be killed. But I don’t believe in that. I always find a way. I’m the thing that monsters have nightmares about. And right now, you and me are gonna show ‘em why. It’s time. Welcome to Thunderdome.

I just realized that they don’t even lampshade the fact that Thor speaks English. Please explain.
It is literally impossible for me to hear “I’ve got a theory” without saying “that it’s a demon”
No, I don’t think the butt slap (which is, bluntly, misogynist sexualized bullying intended to dominate a man by demeaning and harassing him in the manner of a woman), the line about the autistic kid, or the jibe at the guard’s weight were good things or funny things. But I think it was not only ok to have them in the episode, it was an example of good social justice points. Not only were none of them held up as good behavior or legitimately funny things, they were all used to make the characters look bad.
The message was this is douchebag behavior, whether it came from the Ghostfacers (whereupon they instantly got called on it being bullshit so hard they actually looked ashamed of themselves and instantly backpedaled) or Dean (whereupon he instantly got the stinkeye or worse from Sam and it was a clear message of don’t sink to their level). Just erasing the existence of ugly, problematic attitudes, jokes, and behaviors in what is supposed to be contemporary realism just creates a utopian AU where people who have those ugly attitudes can pretend none of it exists. It’s much more effective to have them exposed for the childish asshole bugcrap they are, complete with the addendum of yeah, even if they’re coming from someone you like.
All problematic elements are not created equal. You can’t just say “oh, well, this episode made a racial joke and that’s automatically a -10 social justice points.” A racist joke that the audience is meant to laugh at is horrible. A racist joke from the bad guy that is used as part of establishing why he’s the bad guy can be +10 points. A racist joke from one of the good guys that the audience is meant to cringe at and say dude, I like you, but NO, can be worth +20, because that’s exactly the reaction they should be having in real life when people make them. Even people they like.
Character Alphabet | A | Albus Dumbledore
"Harry, I owe you an explanation," said Dumbledore. "An explanation of an old man’s mistakes. For I see now that what I have done, and not done, with regard to you, bears all the hallmarks of the failings of age. Youth cannot know how age thinks and feels. But old men are guilty if they forget what it was to be young…and I seem to have forgotten lately."
I would just like to say fuck you to everyone who made me feel inadequate growing up and ruining my self esteem for years. You all suck and I’m glad I don’t talk to any of you any more.
