That means basically from K-Pop and Harry Potter to Doctor Who, Firefly and Friends and from Star Trek and Sherlock to classic literature or even opera - anything could end up here.
Also, I may have an unreasonable obsession with Kyuhyun's voice and Donghae's... well, everything.

I see this ALL OF THE TIME. It gets trotted out the second someone with privilege feels you are not being appropriately deferential to their opinions. It takes remarkably little to spur this accusation because it comes from people who feel remarkably entitled to get their way and see any impediment as an act of oppression and totalitarianism.
What really sucks for them is that sometimes they are right. And so what?
So what if people just want to talk to people who agree with them? So what if people want to talk about their beliefs with those they can gain emotional and intellectual support from? How is that the greatest crime ever visited upon someone? What these people are really saying is “So, I guess you don’t want to put up with my constant derailment, auditing of your beliefs, and demands that you justify your existence!”
No one has any obligation to make social justice easier for you. No one has any obligation to hold your hand. And especially no one has any obligation to suffer constant nitpicking and recriminations from people who love accusing others of acting in bad faith almost as much as they love acting in bad faith themselves.
This isn’t about us not being willing to consider we’re wrong. This isn’t about constructing an echo chamber for ourselves. Those kinds of insinuations and accusations always fundamentally mistake the society we live in. As a fat person, I am always going to be inundated with perspectives that stigmatize fatness. A POC will always be surrounded with white supremacist messages. Women will always encounter a culture of misogyny. Queer individuals will always be bombarded with het-centric media. Trans individuals will always be overwhelmed with opinions which center and elevate cis individuals. And so on and so on and so on. These critics like to imagine that they are fighting to open our minds, but the reality is that they are only added voices to an already cacophonous chorus.
You think we only want to talk to people who agree with us, but you ignore that we’ve already been made to talk to an endless cascade of people eager to tell us how wrong we are. So you know what? Maybe some people do just want to talk to people who agree with them. Maybe some people want to proactively seek out positive and constructive interactions. But don’t think that this is sticking our heads in the sand, our fingers in our ears. What some people don’t get is that we’re suffering no shortage of contrary opinions in our lives. Quite the contrary.
You know what I hate about the implication that Hawke has to work so hard to get into a relationship with Fenris while Isabela doesn’t?
It’s not even fucking true. She doesn’t get with him until the third act either, and every time you go to visit him she’s hanging out over at his house. You don’t know how much time they spend together. You don’t know what kind of talks they’ve had. You don’t know how they’ve both bonded over being sexual assault survivors, or how the love of freedom makes them like one another, or how he laughs at her jokes and likes that she’s not trying to TIE HIM DOWN into a serious relationship.
I mean, ship what you want to ship, but don’t be ignorant about it.
what you fail to realize is that video games shouldn’t cater to females in the first place. It’s largely known that it’s targeted towards the MALE demographic and has been for so many years, so why would they ask for something like that to be handed to them on a goddamn silver platter?
that’s like a guy walking into the women’s department of clothing at a sears and demanding that there be more clothing for men there. Separation of sections be damned.
that’s not how it fucking works
no not really
the game industry is more like walking into a regular department store and seeing that all the clothes are only men’s clothes
and when you ask the cashier where the women’s clothing section is, they wheel out a small rack of cheaply made tutus, g-strings, and high heels all in bright pink
and then when you go “wow really that’s it” you get called an uppity bitch and everybody assumes you want all the focus on you when in reality you’d just like to be considered a worthwhile demographic since you also like to wear clothes, it’s not like you want some ridiculous getup, you just want a solid shirt and pair of pants that fits you alright.
I mean hell you even sort of like men’s clothes and you have no problem wearing them. They suit you well. But it’s very obvious once you throw on a pair of men’s pants that they were not made for you.
Perfect metaphor is perfect.
