Mostly caryl and the walking dead stuff on this blog. Although I do have a penchant for many things from the Supernatural Fandom, Lord of the Rings, and various other movies/tv shows.
Also post a lot of liberal-leaning (particularly on social issues) stories, feminism posts, etc.

 

A few things that have bugged me...

ok getting off my chest time

I’m gonna say first of all that I read a message on someones blog calling Carylers ‘man-haters who only love Carol’ and I was like ‘what’. I assumed it was a guy because I don’t like think that there are women that think this way buuut then I see women defending Ray…

"She’s hasn’t been developed fully as character yet. Hasn’t gotten a chance to be her own person yet, and the main reason she gets brought up now is because of her ‘relationship (whatever that is) with Daryl. Nothing like defining a female character through her relationship, or importance to a man. On a show where the women are defined by their own character and treated equally, this is an anomaly that bothers me."

THIS.

I would hate for Beth’s first major storyline to only be about a romantic relationship (which is essentially what happened to Maggie).  I think that would be doing Emily Kinney and Beth a grave disservice to not develop her fully as a character before throwing her into a romantic relationship.  Season 4 was the first season where we really got a sense of who she was, but she’s still not nearly as fleshed-out as a character as she could be.  I think it would be especially a disservice to Beth because Daryl is a very well-fleshed out character and I think if the writers were to pair her up with Daryl now, when she still isn’t a fully-developed character, she just becomes relegated to this role as a “love interest for the hot male lead.”

This is a huge problem that I’ve had with Maggie’s character, how most of her storylines revolve around Glenn, as if Maggie’s central characteristic is that she is someone’s girlfriend/wife.  I have a huge problem with that and I’d hate to see that happen with Beth too.

I have a higher standard for what constitutes “canon” than “it says it on the amc website, which has errors elsewhere on the website.”

And that is why I wait to see what happens in season 5 and caryl the fuck on :)

I don’t want to…

By that logic we would also go with the most public form of media too… meaning the AMC “Caryl is endgame” tweet should have ended every other D ship for good.  *But is doesn’t because canon isn’t determined by social media.

"But is doesn’t because canon isn’t determined by social media"

Exactlyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

If you think that a ship is “canon” based on the criteria that “it’s stated in a website bio or social media” then you have very low standards of what canon means (one that could turn out to be utterly wrong)

I don’t want to start anything but this is the third time AMC has stated that Daryl has feelings for her, that has to mean something, no?

amc also says on their website that Hershel shot Carl, when in fact Otis shot Carl.

So I guess now it is canon that Hershel shot Carl, even though that never actually happened on the show?  At least, according to your logic that whatever AMC says on their website must be true (even when they occasionally say things that are factually inaccurate). 

Call me crazy, but I’m gonna wait until I see a profession of love, or a mouth-to-mouth kiss, or sexual contact that happens on the show itself before I pronounce anything to be canon.  Or do you think that what the amc website says takes precedence over what actually takes place on the show?  Do you see the problematic logic in assuming that something is “canon” purely based on the amc website?

the one thing that gets to me about this scene is that basically nobody addresses the fact that john grabs sam by his jacket sometime during the argument and starts pushing him towards the car that’s when dean physically intervenes between them - he’s literally pushing his father away with his arm bodily forcing himself between them to make john let go of sam also - at no point during the scene does sam put his hands anywhere near his father but solely with dean’s both verbal and physical interference - sam allows dean to push him around literally make him get in the damn car not john talk about winchester power dynamics 

it’s baffling how in a lot of discussions about the winchester family dynamic and the possible history of abuse this scene gets rarely mentioned and when even it does it’s contextualised in a way that puts dean’s unending ~martyrdom in the spotlight john grabbed at sam’s lapels and sam didn’t lift a finger violence between the brothers is normalised (never more evident than in the scene where dean bloody punches an injured and unstable sam for having the NERVE to take the car that by the way belongs to the BOTH of them and they both carry on like it was nothing) but this shows definitively that it’s a long standing familial pattern

And so you got this amazing actor on top of you, pounding on your chest hysterical, crying, he’s got tears dripping onto my face and it was too much. And then I’m like “Okay, this is acting. He’s just— don’t cry. Just hold it together." and then I started to think “Oh my god. If I were dead, someone would probably be like really upset, probably. This is what it would be like. This is weird." and not being able to get a full breathe of air I had a panic attack." - Krysten Ritter at Jane’s death scene and Aaron’s performance

As your leader, I encourage you from time to time, and always in a respectful manner, to question my logic. If you’re unconvinced that a particular plan of action I’ve decided is the wisest, tell me so, but allow me to convince you and I promise you right here and now, no subject will ever be taboo. Except, of course, the subject that was just under discussion. The price you pay for bringing up either my Chinese or American heritage as a negative is I collect your fucking head.

The Christian stance on sex is an interesting topic. To be honest, it seems that Christians/the church are not very good at presenting it. I guess the conclusion I've finally come to is this--sex is a natural thing. It's a good, human, healthy thing, and because sexual desire is a biological function, it's not necessarily sinful. But I do believe, because of the Bible, that sex was meant for the context of marriage. What are your thoughts on that?

phoenixwrites:

Tricky question and one I still don’t know the complete answer to, so bear with me.  

I very much agree about your point on the church.  The church has gone about sex in all the wrong ways.  I find the Purity Culture, the idea that abstaining from sex so you’re pure for your wedding night, a really toxic idea.  It gave a lot of girls a lot of smug superiority about their virginity (like me) and made a lot of girls feel worthless and soiled because they’d had sex before marriage.  (Like many of my friends)  (It also gave young men the idea that it’s women’s fault they were aroused—anyone remember crock pots vs. microwaves?)  The entire point of Christianity is that no one is pure before God, that we need Christ’s sacrifice to become pure before him.  Whether you have sex every day with a different partner or waited till your wedding night, you’re still sinful before God.

I’m wary of using Biblical examples to support abstaining, particularly considering a.) not many Bible heroes actually waited until marriage and b.) women ran the risk of being stoned if they weren’t virgins on their wedding night, of course they didn’t usually have sex before marriage.  Heck, I’ve read books about waiting till marriage that were centered around the Song of Solomon, which is all very well and good, until we remember that Solomon had over 1,000 wives.    

So—barring the harmful effects of the purity culture, my thoughts on sex and Christianity are conflicted.  I do believe God created sex, I do believe He created it with the intention of our enjoyment, to give us a spiritual, emotional, and physical connection to those we love.  I suppose I find it neutral—something that can be used for good, used to glorify God or used to pervert and cheapen something that’s supposed to be wonderful.  It may be meant only for marriage, but then we need to reexamine what marriage means to God and to ourselves.  And also understand that Scriptural marriage doesn’t really line up with modern marriage and that’s probably a good thing.

At this point in my life, I’m still figuring out what exactly that means, if God intended it purely for marriage, for people who are promised to each other, or what.  I will say that I’ve met very few people who have sex casually with different people and it doesn’t affect them negatively.  (Not saying it’s impossible, I’m just sharing my view)  

For what it’s worth, I intend on waiting till marriage.  I have a lot of issues with emotional vulnerability, let alone physical vulnerability, and I think it’s smarter for my well-being to have sex with someone I’m sharing my life with forever.
