untapped aesthetic: surrealist jock
a varsity jacket but it has three arms and it’s melting
your football shoulder pads have grass growing out of them and they constantly hum
you shove nerds not into lockers, but into other planes of existence. your football is always singing, singing, singing. the astroturf changes colors beneath you, and whispers the name of every person you’ve ever loved.
man, like. sometimes i don’t know if the hannibal fandom realizes how good we got it. i’m sorry, i just get emotional when news comes out and it’s like PRELLER COULD BE CANON // THE SHOW IS BASICALLY FAN FICTION // ALL YOUR FAVE CHARACTERS ARE COMIN BACK // SUGGEST MORE DOG NAMES HELL YEAH
like. u guys realize there is probably no other fandom as respected and involved with the creation of their show as we are, right? like. u guys need to know that. u need to know how unbelievably fortunate and loved we are.
i’m really worried about too many characters coming back tbh. certain characters i expect to survive based on canon or just writing, but if too many people can’t stay dead, death is going to lose a lot of meaning for the show
this is not the kind of show that ought to have a happy ending for everyone
Anonymous asked: What is 50 shades of grey about? And what's so bad about it?
50 Shades of Grey was originally fanfiction based on the Twilight series, which was then published as a novel (along with 2 subsequent books). It sold over 100 million copies around the world and topped best-seller lists everywhere. It’s about to be adapted into a film, set to come out early next year.
It follows a college student named Ana Steele, who enters a relationship with a man named Christian Grey and is then introduced to a bastardised and abusive parody of BDSM culture.
While the book is paraded as erotica, the relationship between Ana and Christian is far from healthy. The core mantra of the BDSM community is “safe, sane and consensual”, and 50 Shades is anything but. None of the rules of BDSM practices (which are put in place to protect those involved) are actually upheld. Christian is controlling, manipulative, abusive, takes complete advantage of Ana, ignores safe-words, ignores consent, keeps her uneducated about the sexual practices they’re taking part in, and a multitude of other terrible things. Their relationship is completely sickening and unhealthy.
Basically, “the book is a glaring glamorisation of violence against women,” as Amy Bonomi so perfectly put it.
It’s terrible enough that a book like this has been absorbed by people worldwide. Now, we have a film that is expected to be a huge box-office success, and will likely convince countless more young women that it’s okay not to have any autonomy in a relationship, that a man is allowed to control them entirely. It will also show many young men that women are theirs to play with and dominate, thus contributing to antiquated patriarchal values and rape culture.
Boycott this fucking movie, for the love of god. These kinds of ideas are dangerous and set us back as a society
on the bright side, you have a Rad Beard
aw thank you c:
