People go like “you can’t force diversity” as if the racial hegemony and absolute heterosexuality in media happened naturally and wasn’t carefully constructed and heavily forced by a white supremacist agenda and society’s obsession with hetero normativity
i have said it before and i will say it again:
in the age of social media when the creators of popular media works are paying close attention to how fans interact with the texts they provide us, continuing to prioritize men on a fandom level is not harmless, it is actively undermining female representation on what is supposed to be a counter-cultural level.
#fact: the less gifsets/edits/posts you make about female characters #the less gifsets/edits/posts will be rb’d by official tumblrs #therefore perpetuating (white) male dominance in popular fandoms #(with few exceptions) #also yes - creators will see that you love (white male character a) more than (character b) and prioritize them #shit fucking happens man don’t let it happen to you

Anyway today I was watchin my main jam, Spider-Man, and Peter Parker’s fighting BONE SAW in the cage match and he’s like “cute outfit! did your husband make it for you??” and when I was 7 that line was hilarious but now I’m like, screw you nerd maybe his husband DID make it for him. And then I started thinking about BONE SAW's cute husband making his tight wrestler's outfit and wishing him a good day at the ring RIGHT as Peter Parker started beating the crap out of him. And I was like, gosh, Peter Parker's being a jackass straight boy rn, I hope something bad happens to him. Then Uncle Ben died and I felt like I went too far
