People expressing bafflement at how cute western kids' cartoons like My Little Pony or Steven Universe attracted toxic fandoms, or at MHA fans who hate Bakugou and the character's fans yet are bullies themselves, including sending death threats or suicide baiting, tells me that a lot of people were raised to be really naive about the psychology behind how people (specifically assholes) engage with art.
Imma bring out that one Elif Batuman quote, cuz it's been very very relevant for the past several years:
“I found myself remembering the day in kindergarten when the teachers showed us Dumbo, and I realized for the first time that all the kids in the class, even the bullies, rooted for Dumbo, against Dumbo's tormentors. Invariably they laughed and cheered, both when Dumbo succeeded and when bad things happened to his enemies. But they're you, I thought to myself. How did they not know? They didn't know. It was astounding, an astounding truth. Everyone thought they were Dumbo.”

where are these 'loki is an uwu perfect good bean who has done nothing wrong ever in his life or made any mistakes ever' posts that the loki antis are constantly talking about? how come only the antis seem to know of the existence of these secret hoards of loki positivity blogs that ignore all his flaws?
I’ve always seen people justify their interpretations, or the motivations, not excuse his actions. I would like to know where these people are too!
#like... Loki attempted to destroy jotunheim but he was also having identity issues and Asgard’s into genocide#so it’s not saying that he didn’t attempt genocide it’s saying that culturally and contextually his actions weren’t as bad#Asgard’s got a different system in place to Earth so that’s cool#space Viking morals and puny mortals morals don’t eclipse up#still genocide but unlike Thor earlier Loki’s also ending a war albeit in a violent frenzy#they switch positions in the narrative (foils?) and having a breakdown gets sympathy points#doesn’t make it any less valid that Loki was in an abusive environment or was lied to or tied his worth to Odin’s opinion of him#so focusing on one side over the other is fine??? there’s no downside#with New York we aren’t told to what extent the mind stone affects him and how much is him acting up against his own plan#because of that people can say Loki was mind controlled and innocent and you know there’s not much saying they’re wrong...#there also isn’t a way to say it’d be wrong to say Loki wasn’t mind controlled just tortured and influenced by close proximity to the stone#I usually lean towards the latter option there myself but like if you want to say Loki’s weak for bending to torture whatever#I actually like the no mind control but there was bargaining and he acted along approach#because then you get to the argument that if Loki hadn’t attacked no one would’ve died#but honestly the kill count is so low compared to other in-universe fights what do you expect me to do#I’m not Steve#i think bringing the avengers together and property damage plus leaving Tony preparing for more aliens is good for 80 lives#considering the lives saved from it for sure#worst case scenario Loki just wanted out and away from the oTher and Thanos and bought time to get hit in the head#which is also a valid interpretation#I don’t say Loki is completely innocent but putting things in context instead of ‘he attempted genocide twice’ is??? good?????#and I’ve always seen others provide reasons when they’re talking about Loki too#it’s not just that he’s completely innocent bc he’s hot (unironic)#so I want to know where these people are too#every ‘anti’ argument I’ve seen involves insulting appearance and saying he killed people and is evil bc he betrayed Thor#or that it’s okay to have the hots for the actor and to accept Loki as the villain he is#I might as well add that I’ve only heard that from people who themselves are interested in that however#so while the argument is valid and people can like what they like am yet to see evidence of Loki being evil#another ​bad thing he did was lie to Thor for no reason and even then it wasn’t a permanent solution and Thor benefitted from it in the end#people tend to forget Loki was good at the start of Thor 1 and we’re given the reason he let the jotuns in too and it’s sound enough

The "din/darksaber's haunted" people realize that like, having an important NEUTRAL object that's incredibly symbolic to an oppressed, warrior minority be haunted in a bad, evil, violent way is like... not good, right? And also that the "bad voices telling me to kill or hurting me" horror trope is really fucking ableist and as such (OBVIOUSLY) something that is REALLY BAD and SHOULD NOT be in the horror genre? They get that, right? Are they ignoring it for the aesthetic, or are they truly oblivious? Because they're all grown adults as far as I can tell, so my belief that they're oblivious is basically nonexistent and that hurts more than obliviousness would.

Is this the time I mention the weird, kind of racist way Marvel writes Asian characters, or...?
#marvel cinematic universe#mcu#marvel#marvel comics#Obviously there are nonexamples#But take Japanese characters for example#A lot of them are villains#And the more well-known ones have motivations stemming from the fucking nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki#Like Sunfire and Silver Samurai#There's another that works with Hydra which has Nazi undertones#There are two Japanese heroes I can think of that ggo against this stereotype#Except Jolt and Nico Minoru are sansei and yonsei#Which isnt inherently bad#It looks like Marvel cant write Japanese characters without them being villains or morally dubious or far removed from the culture#Also in Daken's backstory they ahd to specify that the girlfriend he kills is American.#It isnt just Japanese either#Sasha Hammer is Chinese-American and apparently Marvel likes violent Asian characters so of course she helps kill her own mother#Then there's the comic version of The Ancient One and that mess#There's White Tiger and Sun Bird and Blue Dragon and Shell Shock#I love them!#Except they only exist in Future Fight. A mobile game.#Marvel sucks at Asian representation in general#They're maybe trying#But in the comics I dont really see that#HOOOOOO BOY I CAN'T WAIT TO BE CALLED A FILTHY FUCKIN IMPERIALIST AND JAPANESE WAR CRIME SYMPATHIZER FOR BRINGING UP JAPANESE CHARACTERS#please prove me wrong#Also speed round#Collective Man#Amadeus Cho falls under a stereotype and frankly super intelligent children is an overused trope anyway#Sunpyre counts too stop using the fucking imperial flag dipshits

Extremely Long Heinoustuck Intermissions (The Felt) Descriptions
Pretty much everyone has a description, all because I wanted to redesign them. Keep them alive, and even give those that didn’t have designs a design. Also because I really wanted to draw Crowbar and New!Clover in my sketchbook.
Descriptions are kept on the keep reading, because it’s pretty long.
Trigger Warning for described gore, mating, and psychological torment. Viewers, don’t say I did not warn you. This is Heinoustuck, and this is also because some act more like animals than others. Also, don’t ask Crowbar or Matchsticks why they go in heat like Itchy, Quarters and Clover. Even they don’t know the answers to that question.
Itchy - A lot more animalistic, though I chose to keep only two aspects of his og design. The cat like tail, and the three arms. Mostly now four, two on his back and two on the front. He mostly walks on all fours, can make mostly cat-like sounds (hisses, yowls, possibly soft mews and trills). He can still communicate in writing, though he rarely ever writes anything cohesive (likely on purpose). He also has a mouth on the back of his head, though since he cannot speak he has no need to use it most of the time. It functions as a normal, non-cat controlled mouth. Description – Despite acting like a cat, and looking nearly like one too, this one is.. almost all bark and no bite. He thinks he can be threatening by hissing at his prey, but that almost never works considering that his prey is Doze (whom is never scared of him at all). And by almost… he’s only threatening when ‘in heat’. During summer it is unwise to step foot inside the mansion for a very good reason. Not only is Itchy in heat, but so are the robots and especially Clover. He will find a female visitor one way or another, and most likely he won’t hesitate to drag them to his room to tear apart their clothes and mate with them.
--------------
Doze - HOO BOY HERE WE GO! Doze used to look like as he did in the og post, slug-like with four arms on his back and two arms in the front. Though after the first 'Hibernation' period in the manor, he was given a shell to hide in. This shell was where he hibernated, and where something of a metamorphosis happened. During the first week, his original eyes opened up again (but they were blue.. that and he was still blind for a bit), and the stitched on (snail-like) eyes fell off and created 'horns' (slimy, but they were still horns). The second week the hands on the back fell off and out came slimy, drippy 'wings' (though he cannot fly with them). The third week his 'legs' became a more mobile (yet slimy) tail, akin to that of a serpent. His clothes is mostly slimy, and his arms dripped with slime. After the first 'Hibernation', Doze became a lot more social and well.. huggy to friends. Let him hug you though, and don't be upset if your clothes get ruined. This is just his way of showing affection.
Description – Doc Scratch presumed that Doze would stay in his forever form, doomed to a shell for all eternity being too slow to even escape any prey in any other way. He did not anticipate the metamorphosis that Doze would undergo after a whole month had pass since his first transmutation. Now that Doze is a bit more mobile (yet friendly), it means he can protect those he sees as friends more. Also, don’t pry him off. The last time someone did that he melted their arms off. Don’t struggle against someone who could accidentally do that. Sage advice.
---------------
Trace + Fin – THIS ONE. This one where I couldn’t come up with shit for either of them. Well, Fin’s I did… but I scrapped that idea because it was garbage! So instead, I gave the two of them shark legs, sliced their brains in half and therefore gave each other halves of each others brains inside their heads, and stitched the shark tails together (making them bound together). Thank you, it’s fucked up!
Description – Doctor Scratch, seeing that he had no choice but to act fast, did this one rather quickly. It was by no means sloppy though, as it lead to the fiercest of all the members of The Felt. Once the both of them were awake, they were quick to notice that their mouths were sewn shut. Their nails were a bit sharper, but another hindrance came immediately. They had a long shark tail… but it replaced both of their legs. Even despite both of those issues, the two of them would learn how to control their body. Becoming more in sync then they could’ve ever been before. Even despite them not knowing much about each other before they arrived at the mansion.
---------------
Clover – Hahaha… Just read the description. It’s even worse than the original redesign! Also he looks normal! ...From the front.
Description – He ended up dying after colliding onto the ground for attempting to escape Doctor Scratch. A parasite discovered his corpse, afterwards bringing Clover back to life as a host to the main parasite. The mouth on the back of his head is noted to be deadly. It can trick prey by luring them in with a glow inside the mouth. The mouth opens so the prey can reach inside it… and SNAP! A hand is melted off and lost, and Clover will feel that happening. Thus, sensing prey with his vines to tear them apart limb by limb. He then feeds the limbs to the parasite, believing himself to be doing a good job.
Mating works differently for Clover. First he uses his vines to constrict the victim, his dicks coming free from the leaves keeping them hidden (well that and the crotch, considering that they come out lubricated). Then he approaches the victim, and forces their pants off one way or another. He then inserts the tenta-dicks into both of the back holes in the victims body, after that it’s… ‘basic mating’ from there.
---------------
Die - He basically has the powers his voodoo doll once had, that and also keeping pins in a bag-like object on his back. Sticking to the fact that he became more anxious, and is even worried whenever he sees ‘prey’. Though he has different morals than the others.
Description – After being stitched to have his dolls powers, and given a sack to keep the large pins within, he was allowed to roam around his room. He has no clue what the internet is, often poking at the phone screen curiously trying to figure out how it works. He eventually did, which is probably how he found out what Tumblr was in the first place.
---------------
Crowbar - Has metallic arms made of flesh and steel, that whilst he couldn’t move them, he did have other metallic limbs that could. His arms work like the game ARMS where they can stretch for more range. That ability though is solely used in combat, mostly since in any other situation he could smack the problem with his Temporal Fists.
Description – Being forced to have cybernetics on your body, while you were knocked unconcious even, is really painful. He is one of the three that would probably say you were right… if they, including himself, could! The programming within his brain  keeps him from having freewill unless there is no combat or ‘enemies’ (that means anyone that is from outside the mansion). Thus being really great at combat, but not so great at socializing with other people.
---------------
Snowman - She has frozen arms that resemble claws, and her skirt now covers her entire legs (she can still move around though). That and on her hat is a frozen crown made of ice. The crown is to remind people that she is in fact, the used to be ruler of Derse. She has no universe ending abilities, though one should still be weary whenever encountering her.
Description – ERRORERRORERRORERRORERRORERRORERRORERROR
---------------
Stitch – Very stitched up, mostly looks like an effigy. He still owns the effigies of the other members, but some of them are grey to symbolize that they don't need special healing.
Description – Doc Scratch had started to slowly run out of ideas, at least for Stitch and for Sawbuck. General abilities for them mapped out, he decided to go all out with Sawbuck. As for Stitch, he stitched Stitch up like a rag doll. As in, make him look like his own effigy because he is his own effigy. The consequence was that Stitch cannot speak, having no mouth because it was stitched over by this careless decision. But he can easily stitch up the effigy’s that need to be healed, knowing which one’s do not need healing (as they are grey to signify as much).
---------------
Sawbuck - (No ideas yet)
Description – (No ideas yet)
---------------
Matchsticks - Let's just say he was merged with a flamethrower and his chest has many eyes, and then move right along. Not much to say other then his abilities work the same and he is a bit more serious then the original Matchsticks.
Description – One of the three that were given forced cybernetics, he acts like a completely different person when in and out of combat. When outside of combat, aka with his fellow Felt members or when with allies of The Felt, he seems to be chipper. He also seems to crack jokes, not that he doesn’t do that from time to time during combat. But in combat, he is more serious, cracking jokes a little less and seeming to burn all foes at once. He can move the flames that he controls, thus now you are wondering what happened to his fire extinguisher? Oh he wasn’t just merged with a flamethrower. He uses the fire extinguisher built into his right hand to put out the flames to prevent them from spreading. How does he know when to use it? His mind was programmed with the gem-like eyes on his chest armor in mind, they blink whenever he has to put out the flames.
---------------
Eggs – Is noted to always be very cold, and to have made the cold room that Biscuits resides in. Reading the description should help describe this idea in more details.
Description – Being transmutated with a fridge, and also an egg timer can make you cold. Very cold, because they are keeping the eggs fresh. When in combat, he breaks the eggs to create yolk clones of himself. Because of this cold feeling, he usually only stays in his room because it was made for him. Warm, unlike his body, but since he is basically (and sort of) a machine, he cannot melt. Also he has a cannon on his arm, because how else would you launch the eggs?
---------------
Biscuits – Is noted to always be very hot, being a furnace in all. He made the really warm room that Eggs resides in, considering that Eggs is always cold. Reading the description for Biscuits helps with this idea, much like Eggs. Description – When you are transmutated with a furnace, to be used like an oven, you would wonder why he seems to talk about Eggs. This is because he and Eggs can communicate to each other to coordinate attacks. Their rooms are linked through a special doorway, with their bodies being able to merge together at times (only when their backs are together!). His room is kept cool so that way he does not overheat, which would be bad, especially if there are enemies nearby!
--------------
Quarters - His right hand was merged with his Mini-Gun, and he mostly looks machine-like. Do not threaten him or he will fire very fast, very deadly coins into your body. These are as deadly as bullets, even deadlier then lasers if you think about it. (or don't)
Description – Being one of the three given forced cybernetics, this one is the one that no one knows his personality at all. He is either activated whenever a threat is within the mansion, or deactivated when he isn’t needed. As such Crowbar and Matchsticks can only speak to him when they are charging (aka sleeping for robots). Surprisingly, he doesn’t like violence. It makes him upset, so every time he recharges, within his resting mind he weeps because of the bloodshed he caused.
---------------
Cans - Many arms, many ways to kill people with said arms (fists, hands). He won't hurt anyone he doesn't see as a threat though.
Description – He was forced to have many arms… okay many as in four sets of them. Two sets of arms and hands on the back, and two sets of arms and hands on the front. The only reason he does not fight most people is because he thinks most of them are weak. He believes that he should only fight foes that are as strong as he is, so that way they prove to be a challenge. And also because, like Quarters, he just isn’t a violent person. Also did you know his head has three sets of eyes? I just wanted to point that out somewhere...

Suddenly remembered how dgs2 spent the final two cases demonizing a Japanese man and having his two japanese friends basically agree and ruminate on how shitty and terrible he is for the sole purpose of holding the audiences hand and forcing them to agree that the racist who’s been harassing all of them for the past two games is a much better guy in comparison actually bc the writers are aware there’s no possible way for u to prefer him so they just hve the characters tell you directly that asougi is so fucked up and terrible please stan van yikes instead please he’s better we prommy. Oh I’m feeling violent

the other thing I’ve learned from falling down a “Karen TikTok” rabbit hole is twofold:
1. some people are serious dicks to skateboarders
2. some skateboarders are serious dicks to random bystanders around them, and then come over all indignant when the bystanders get understandably upset
