#YesAllWomen is trending on Twitter right now.

This is very important. 

Right now, men just need to shut up, read these and learn. We HAVE to do better.

SpoilerTV Poll: What is your favorite ship from Once Upon A Time?

GUYS VOTE FOR SWEN, CAPTAIN SWAN IS WINNING. IT MANY JUST BE ANOTHER POLL, BUT ITS A POLL THAT’LL SHOW SWEN IS REAL!!!

Unfortunately…

It may be our lot in life that we have to keep winning these polls. It might just be our burden to carry.

So go win it SWEN. I voted. I am powerless when it comes to the polls though.

“Mainstream media tends to hyper-sexualize gay relationships. Hence, many OUAT fans argue that you can’t have a gay couple on a family show about fairy-tales (often in very misspelled social media posts). But um, nope, that’s just not true. When viewers say they want to see Swan Queen, it’s not a request for the show to become sexually explicit, to be Once Upon a Time in My Pants, it’s asking the show and the show’s audience to recognize that all those idealized elements of true love—authentic connection, sacrifice, and loyalty—also happen in LGBT relationships. LGBT romances deserve an idealized, flowers and hearts, aspirational depiction that parents and kids can watch together and sigh and say “Awww!” the way they do currently with hetero ones. I’m no folklore professor, I don’t own an amulet or Tevas, but even I know fairy-tales are one of the earliest ways we teach kids basic life lessons: what is good, what is bad, don’t talk to strangers, someday you’re going to find someone who will make all the terrible stuff worth it. If we can’t talk about gay relationships in fairy-tale terms, then we’re teaching kids who grow up to be gay that there isn’t a happy ending for them. Like, what other message does it send when Mulan walked away, sobbing, before she could even tell Aurora how she felt? “Believing in even the possibility of a happy ending is a powerful thing” is the show’s own thesis statement. Why not let gay kids, gay teens, and gay parents aspire to a happy ending too?”

Anonymous said: Why do you think the women in OUAT are allowed to make mistakes, I.e. Regina And Emma; their psychology analyzed thoroughly to excuse certain deplorable actions? But when it comes to the men, the insight into the "how" and the "why" of their actions seems to be reduced to shallow analysis? It seems to do a disservice to the LGBT and feminist community when you're nitpicking the men but excusing the women, making SQ seem misandristic and petty. These tactics tend to fall on deaf ears.

angstbotfic:

oh Nonnie, let’s say what you mean. you think SQers don’t think Regina killing people and raping Graham is bad. and you think we don’t give enough credence to poor Rumpel and Hook and even Graham’s manpain. 

and really, it’s like you’ve never been in the fandom at all. have you listened to a CSer excuse Hook lately? they don’t even bother with psychology. they just grunt “before, Hook bad. now, Hook love Emma.” and who’s to blame them. that’s it. that’s the show.

but really, the Manpain Express doesn’t get better when you analyze psychologically. let’s look at it, shall we?

Message matters, & this is a terrible message. #stoponceuponahook

HES A FUCKING PIRATE! DO YOU GUYS KNOW WHAT PIRATES EVEN FUCKING DID?! I CAN TELL YOU ONE THING THEY DIDNT TAKE GIRLS OUT AND BUY THEM FLOWERS AND CHOCOLATES AND WAITED FOR THEIR APPROVAL TO HAVE SEX! NOW SHUT THE HELL UP IT MAKES THE SHOW

This is amazing stuff right here.  'Hook's a pirate and pirates are rapists, so SHUT THE HELL UP AND LET HIM (AND OTHER PIRATES) RAPE WOMEN!!!!' is exactly what this exemplary human being is shouting at us in caps.  Mad props.

Well you see I never said Hook raped women, just pirates in general. I never said rape was ok. Just the fact that pirates in history did that. Everyone is bitching about Hook’s past and the fact that yes he is a pirate and did pirate-y things they can’t see the fact that the real message is true love can change anyone. He loves Emma so much that he changed. He would do anything for her. Thanks for putting words in my mouth though.

I’ll break this down for you since you don’t seem to get it.  
Someone compiles a list of terrible things that Hook has done and says it sends a terrible message to viewers, and you tell her to “shut the hell up” because pirates do “pirate-y things” (like raping women, which was in your own words, not ours, “THEY DIDNT [… WAIT] FOR THEIR APPROVAL TO HAVE SEX!”).  But okay, you’re saying that’s what pirates in history did, not Hook.  Cool beans, even if you’ve just basically excused every pirate in history for raping and hurting women.
But back to Hook.  Unluckily for everyone involved, his problematic behaviour is certainly not limited to that, if you want to nitpick over words — check out a few examples of this in the above post.  So what you’re saying is, “Rape is bad, but everything Hook has canonically done is A-OK now because “true love can change anyone” and “he loves Emma so much”, amirite?
To people who are saying “it’s not okay to control someone like a puppet”, “it’s not okay to sexually assault someone”, and “it’s not okay to get someone drunk to rape her” (FYI, if your judgement is impaired sufficiently, such as by alcohol, you cannot consent to the act, so yes, legally and morally, it is reprehensible, and it is rape, and I’m sorry if you’re so far gone that you don’t understand this), you tell them to shut up and dismiss their concerns by saying they’re “bitching” about what Hook’s done.  Instead of, you know, being horrified by his actions.  If you’re not excusing rape, not excusing behaviour that leads to rape, and not excusing problematic ways of thinking (e.g. that a woman’s consent doesn’t matter) here, I’m not sure what exactly you’re doing.

And we have a winner
