THIS. I saw a post the other day that literally said if you do it to a fictional character, you’ll do it in real life.

No. Just NO.

I’m so glad someone put it into words.

Lin-Manuel Miranda is a legend, and he’s absolutely right.

And I really feel like there are parts of fandom that don’t get or don’t believe this, and I think that’s troubling.  I’ve seen arguments that people shouldn’t have dark fantasies, or that bad impulses in themselves make a bad person.  I’ve seen so much shaming over thoughts.

And if you get to a point where it’s bad to have dark thoughts and it’s bad to wonder what something would be like and it’s bad to put yourself in the shoes of anyone who isn’t “pure”, if fiction is no longer a realm where you can confront and explore, but an ongoing test of moral purity… well, maybe not everyone’s brain works like mine, but I feel like that takes away something incredibly important to being human.

Purity culture is gonna kill art if y’all let it.

We live with a younger generation who seriously believe that censorship is more important that creativity.

I’ve never understood this. Tumblr is pretty amerocentric, so many people here actually come from a culture influenced by Puritan thought, and given the number of lgbtq blogs on here, I’d assume many of them clashed with that society. But somehow the idea of being “pure” is still in people’s minds, and it’ll be persued with the same religious zealotry (including pressing it on everyone else); it’s just that what is considered “pure” has changed a little.

Okay, wait, addendum: I was just scrolling through the notes, and a significant number of people say stuff like “yes, I agree, but X is taking it a step too far, X is gross and should never be written about”. First, that sort of defeats the point? But—more importantly—why is X always child pornography? How is sexual abuse of a minor—horrid as it is—the thing people see as the single worst of all evils? I literally read a comment that was like “yeah this is right about murder, but jerking off to children is […]”, and I’m just, what? Are humans so obsessed with sex that sexual exploitation of a child is a worse crime than literally ending a life? (and it always has to be sexual; child labour or just plain old emotional abuse can presumably wreck one’s life with similar trauma, but seem to interest close to no one) If so, as mathematician I must ask: does that scale? Is killing a hundred people still better than one child’s rape? Is a fantasy of genocide—and all that it might spark—more acceptable than a few lines of child pornography?

[insert here a rant about how this morality enables US scandals of the likes of “pizzagate”, and the idea that anything Trump does or might yet do is justified because he fights against child trafficking, which is apparently something some people really do believe …]

I guess if I had to choose one crime to trump all others it would be murder. A child victim of rape may be traumatized or even suicidal, but they’re still alive, and still have life’s infinite potential. It seems weird to value that life less than death.

Also to everyone saying ‘but…. but… child porn!’ Guys… unless it actually involves a child it’s not child porn. You could write a baby jacking off another baby and net damage it does to any actual children is zilch.

Today In Comics: MORE VENOM RETCONS – X-MEN DISASSEMBLED CONCLUSION – TOMASI’S BATMAN IS WEIRD

By Roman Marley

The X-Men are REMOVED from the Marvel Universe! Venom continues to suck! Titans in Lord of the Rings?? RNS Entertainment breaks down today’s comics!

WATCH THIS! It put in words the whole problem of Cates run with Venom

(Venom bit starts at https://youtu.be/SpR9EEABlkg?t=33m21s)

This guys put it perfectly. Here a few of the things that hit best with me:

“This is not a story. This is a collection of egotistical retcon that a writer just came up with in a list”

“[Some writer] think that to leave a mark on a character you have to retcon everything about them and make up your own shit”

“The only thing this book does is saying “here is a piece of Eddie Brock history, and here’s how it’s different now!”. […] And that’s all it does, there is no story”

“It’s a book for people who don’t know about Venom. […] It’s the only people I see praising it”

“[Quote tweets saying Cates run is best run], you only think that because you don’t know the character and because the artwork is visually impressive”

“There are other flaws but that’s the most glaring,[…] the arrogance behind it”

So yeah, so much for “6 people on Tumblr” heh Cates?

Oh how I wish he would see this… but sadly he’s an arrogant coward.

Also, this video made me realise something very bad. The guy in the video is right, a lot of people who don’t know Venom, who have never read a Venom issue before, are gonna come into comics, and find this run. This shit will be their first run. And most people won’t bother picking up anything else.

So for them, this version of Eddie Brock will be the “true” Venom/Eddie Brock.

This piece of shitty arrogant retcon, will be how they see Venom. Taken at face value.

THIS is why Cates run is successful. Because he was lucky to be the writer when the movie made a win and people flocked to the comics for more.And now he can fuck up ALL those new writers.

And that’s just sad.

Remember, if you ever get the chance, point out to Cates that the only reason he’s writing Venom is because Disney doesn’t want to give Sony anything good for their next movie.

They did that same thing with X-Men, ran it into the ground and killed most of them off so people are less like to get into Marvel franchises outside their control. This is what they are doing with Venom, call Cates out of it for being Disney’s own saboteur.
