Hi I'm Jenn I like video games and cute animals and that's like 90% my blog
ranting about a dumb thing that i keep getting bothered about that pops up in the whole dashcon debacle
can we please stop with the whole “EWWW BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH AND TOM HIDDLESON ARE SO GROOOSSSS IDK WHY THESE FANGIRLS ARE SO CRAZY ABOUT THEIR FUCKIN ~BRITISH CHEEKBONES~ LOL HOW STUPID”
if these celebs were ladies we would immediately recognize this as a bit shit. there are good reasons to critique people and there are good reasons to dislike celebrities and there are even good reasons to look down on people who defend said celebrities.
"i don’t like their face" is not one of them
people are allowed to like different aesthetics than you do
when the celebs being talked about have repeatedly commented that they find it amazing anyone thinks they are attractive and how they consider themselves quite ugly in a way that betrays their lack of self-esteem, you aren’t doing any brave attack in the name of justice by agreeing with their self-hatred
you just are telling people you are really petty and cannot fathom people liking things you don’t personally like and if someone dares to be something you don’t like they should be mocked for it
by all means hold up rabid fans who send death threats as a demonstration of what is ridiculous, by all means talk about how shit actors have done is problematic, etc
but every time you reblog something that is “i hate this actor because i think he’s ugly, ewwww”
you lose a lot of my respect tbqh
you’re better than that. you can be, and you should be, better than just mocking someone relentlessly because you don’t like how their face looks. you should hate someone for more reasons than ‘i do not find their facial features aesthetically pleasing’. because you know what that says to me? to this ugly kid sitting here typing this? it says that if you got a chance, you would mock ME in just the same way.
so don’t do it please.
I personally did like seeing Cumberbatch when i first saw the show because to me it was a sign “Yes you don’t have to match idealized criteria to have recognized what you can do” “You can be ugly and still have success/reach people” but seeing people complain about “how can u like dis so ugly” and then reblog a post à la “love yourself don’t let ppl tell u otherwise”?
Now every time I see a post like this I think “yeah but except you don’t like the person, then it is A okay to bash their appearance” *rolls-eyes*
I mean by now Cumberbatch probably doesn’t give any fucks if ppl think he’s ugly or not but you know who these posts actually hurt? Other people who have issues with their appearance.
I remember people pointing out valid reasons to dislike Cumberbatch but I can’t even remember what they were because most posts concerning him are just about how ugly is and that he looks like an Alien.
Like yeah thanks for reminding me that you’d rather criticize how I just happen to look than actual valid crit. points. You’d rather complain and complain pages long about my face than about if I’m sexist or racist or some other actual bad shit.
i know right??? it’s just like WOW THANKS FOR INFORMING ME THAT YOU THINK IT’S OK TO CONSTANTLY BASH SOMEONE BECAUSE YOU DON’T LIKE THEIR APPEARANCE THAT SURE IS A COMFORT TO MY UGLY SELF
it’s a really really gross thing that keeps popping up more and more and i really hate it

My parents aren’t home
You know what that means
*sits in the living room instead of sealing myself away in my room*
this is too accurate
*parents close the door*, *emerges slowly from room like an easily startled deer*
*Parents come home* *scurries back to room like frightened squirrel*
Y’all think this is a joke but it’s 100% accurate
