i don’t trust people who are super into “proper grammar” and “correct punctuation” because what lies just beyond that smug superiority is some sinister classism that gets acutely racist in a red hot minute, so for similar reasons I’m instantly wary of anyone who takes great pride in their love of “logic” and “intellect”
narratives that are popular that piss me off:
- sex workers being pitied by a white man in a position of power which is seen to add to his character in a novel as a Nice Guy
- loads of stories about paedophiles being sexually abused as children, kinda in the same vein as when they make the only vocal homophobe in a story come out later on. fuck that noise.
the generation that cancelled firefly and removed pluto’s planetary status are getting too old to stop us bringing both of them back
1. the first episode Whedon ever pitched involved Inara (canonically a sex worker) getting massively gang raped by reavers after taking an injection that would make her vagina toxic, which is hugely gross and plays into a horde of disgusting tropes
2. Pluto’s different behavior during its orbit, plus the existence of other objects like it puts it in a class of its own. to keep classifying it as a planet rather than a dwarf planet would be doing nothing for scientific accuracy.
on both accounts we’re not missing anything by not having these things back the way they were
