About

Feminist. Geeky. Outraged. Parent.

I'm still figuring out how to examine themes for accessibility. If it's unintelligble but you can access the sidebar, try the mobile version instead.

I also manage the Hope in Progress tumblr. That one's serious. This is a toy.

Tumblr genuinely is younger than most other social platforms, and more diverse. A greater proportion of its users are people of colour than on any other major platform. Women users make up a higher percentage than anywhere else bar Pinterest. Teenagers over-index dramatically. And while Pew and other research agencies don’t tend to ask about sexuality or gender identification, LGBT visibility in Tumblr fandom is very high. What looks to dim outsiders as some kind of obsession with “social justice” often just springs from people talking about themselves, their lives and the shit that happens to them.

Just one of many excellent parts in this piece by Tom Ewing (which is only a little bit about Tumblr.)

(The piece is about Marvel fandom, though that’s not apparent from this quote.)

(via velociraptorchan)

This is exactly why people refer to Tumblr in dismissive tones, though. This is no accident. 

"Hysterical", "over-emotional", "irrational" means too many women

"obsessed with social justice" means too many POC, too many LGBTA, too many disabled/chronically ill people. Not just talking about their own lives, talking period, without being immediately silenced.

Makes some folks very uncomfortable.

It’s too blatant to even be a dogwhistle.

This is an extremely interesting insight, for me at least. And sheds some light on certain reactions to this blog both from the tumblr platform itself, and from other external websites. I wonder how medievalpoc and ideas about it are affected by overall perceptions about tumblr as a blogging platform, and the way its users are perceived. It lends some context to some of the assumptions people have made about my age, gender, race and *ahem* “relative credibility”.

Personally, I am in love with the interactive elements here.

So I went to Dragon*Con a few weeks ago and found a great Snape and Ten cosplaying near each other. It was in the busy section of the vendor fair so I just asked for a picture of them together and ten just said “on a scale of 1-11 how close do you want us?” so I said “uh…12”
AND THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED

I THINK I ACCIDENTALLY CREATED FAN FICTION

Digital Baubles: She Wrote It BUT... She Had An Inside Connection

kellysue:

Dude means well. Dude’s tweeting to Marvel in favor of more diversity. Dude states (inaccurately) that Marvel has two women writers — M. Liu and K. DeConnick, the latter being ‘a lady with an inside connection.’

Just like that—fwoosh. Didn’t work my way in. Got in because of who I’m fucking….
