“As fans, sometimes we need to remember that the things we like don’t define our worth as people. So there’s no need to defend them from every single criticism or pretend they are perfect. Really loving something means seeing it as it really is, not as you wish it were. You can still be a good fan while acknowledging the problematic elements of the things you love. In fact, that’s the only way to be a good fan of problematic things.”—How to be a fan of problematic things (via shelloiljunior)
The Kummers were much less sexist. There was that vile 'Samgina' stuff, but Pirates have a real contempt for women. I've seen them say that Klaine is why "twelve year olds shouldn't be allowed to talk." Someone else claimed that we like Klaine because we have too much estrogen (which is also transphobic). There's more, but I don't have room to list it all. I will say that they're worse than the neckbeards in comics fandom, and they treated women as either objects or zoo animals.
Yeah one of my biggest issues with the Kummers* was the whole (cis)sexist ~Samgina~ stuff, plus the implication that Blaine wasn’t enough of a “guy” for Kurt because Sam’s more “masculine” or w/e (which the Pirates do as well)
But Pirates*, man. I just. Where do I even start? :| There’s the sexism and the victim blaming in an attempt to justify Karofsky’s actions (“Kurt shouldn’t have provoked him - he was asking for it!!!”) and the “it wasn’t even sexual assault, get over it” and the complete lack of respect for others’ triggers and their bastardized definition of rape (“Blaine tried to rape Kurt! Dave just had feelings when he kissed him!”) which is fucked up on many levels and idk I haven’t had breakfast yet so idk if I’m making sense BUT I HAVE SO MUCH RAGE ABOUT HOW FUCKED UP THE THINGS THESE PEOPLE SAY ARE OKAY
*some, not all
I told myself I would stay away from wank lol I guess that failed welp
I actually get all nostalgic over the Kum wank days, man. Even at their dumbest the Kum shippers couldn’t reach the level of offensive Pirates get to on a regular basis if they made a conscious effort of it.
ikr! I read Pirates’ posts and I’m just like “wow if you’re being serious, you’re horrible”
and idk, for me anyways, it might have something to do with the fact that Karofsky legitimately unnerves me whereas I liked Sam well enough
