Fandom Etiquette

belladamenoir:

As I engage in tweets and reblogs with other fans, I find myself SMH at the actions of others and I wonder if its the same in all fandoms? Is Scandal a unique experience? Do people simply lack the social training to know how they should act?

1. Unless you are looking for…

Ok, the people who plan to watch Scandal this fall, please make yourselves known to me. I’d like more blogs to follow. Thanks. Xoxo

I’m watching, but really the only comments I make on here are inappropriate remarks about Tony Goldwyn. So there’s that.

I am

I am watching but not live; time change won’t allow for it. It will break my heart but still I WANT TO BELIEVE

I am. May or may not live-tweet.

Sometimes I forget that slavery has only been illegal for a little over a century, and civil rights happened about 50 years ago. Like my mom was born right at the tail end of the movement.

When I think about that, nothing going on surprises me.

Exactly. The people on social security right now, are the same ones who were raised by the generation that saw the end of slavery.

And black people haven’t even had a solid 100 years at full citizenship (in legal terms anyways). Us, the current young folk generation, are the grandchildren of that shift.

Compare that against the 200+ years that Black people were lucky to be considered cattle, and you start to get an idea of just how far we have to go before the culture really starts to see some change.

I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. Like, almost consumed with it…

How do you expect a whole group of people to “get over” centuries worth of trauma in 50 years? My parents aren’t even 50 yet (one is an only child, the other is the youngest of 8), but to think that the residual effects wouldn’t be passed down is naive. Same goes for the thoughts and deeds of those who benefit from our oppression.

Hubby comes home and looks over my shoulder and see’s me reading the latest update for The Otherside. His words, ” I think you have to know everything there is about Damon and Bonnie, they are all over the place”.

He then leaves me in peace so I can fangirl.

I married the right man who supports my insane shipping lol.

My husband makes fun of me for reading fanfic :( But I do love The Other Side!
