"That’s what Hook is, no matter what people try to twist the facts and say. He’s a rapist. So is Regina, but she actually kept it isolated to "Graham, so it’s forgivable in my opinion. Why is it forgivable? Because a true rapist unapologetically and indiscriminately attacks others. Regina literally only had the forced relationship with Graham. Her thing with Sydney was her taking advantage of his one-sided love for her, yes, but if she had offered herself to him, he would have consented (1)

(2)  without question (The key to that is that he had no qualms and even was the one to suggest being the one to do the deed with killing Leopold). Graham she had to rip his heart out to get his consent, so yes, she forced him. But he’s the only one she ever forced into that sort of thing.” WHAT THE FUCK. Regina’s not a ‘true rapist’ because she only raped one person? Sorry rape victims, bad news. If you’re the only person your rapist raped, they’re not really a rapist.

WHAT THE FUCK SERIOUSLY. I am so done with people who think that they get to redefine words like ‘rape’ and ‘rapist’ just to play apologist for their favorite character or ship. “True rapist” sounds very much like that “legitimate rape” bullshit.

There are no such things as a “true rapist” and some kind of “not-true rapist”. Rape is rape, and a rapist is a rapist. There are no degrees there. If you have sex with someone against their will, without their full informed, unimpaired consent, YOU ARE A RAPIST. It doesn’t matter if you rape one person or 100 people. If doesn’t matter if you commit rape once or 100 times. If you’ve committed RAPE you are a RAPIST. None of this “true rapist” bullshit because she didn’t rape “enough” people or some bullshit.

REGINA IS A RAPIST. THE FACT THAT SHE ONLY RAPED ONE PERSON DOES NOT MAKE IT EXCUSABLE OR SOMEHOW “FORGIVABLE”.

Her relationship with Sidney doesn’t factor into any of this at all. It is completely and totally irrelevant. You aren’t “less of a rapist” because you raped one person but didn’t rape someone else, or because you raped one person but someone else would be totally happy to have sex with you.

Whoever made this post is SO DISGUSTING. I’d really love this person to tell someone to their face that the person who raped them isn’t a “true rapist” because they didn’t rape enough people.

IF SOMEONE COMMITS RAPE, THEY ARE A RAPIST. PERIOD. THIS ISN’T A MATTER OF DEGREES. RAPE IS RAPE, AND IF YOU COMMIT IT YOU’RE A RAPIST. DOESN’T MATTER HOW MANY PEOPLE OR HOW MANY TIMES.

I am so beyond disgusted with some of the people in this fandom. They should be fucking ashamed of themselves.

Jfc they messed up the season 3 finale SO BAD. Hook being the one to go after Emma made no sense. He barely faced his past self (though the punch was awesome). But really, he wasn’t that different. He’s just slightly less douchey to women. Like we just saw him try to get Tink drunk in 3a and in 3b he had gone back to being a pirate. And I dunno, I didn’t really see that big of a difference except a change in obsessions. And with Rumple! That was so boring. They made Rumple kind of pathetic which made no sense to me.

Regina going back would have been MUCH more interesting. For Regina to see herself in her prime as the evil queen? To become even more self aware of who she was and how much she really has changed? Isn’t that what defeating Zelena was partially about? WHY WOULD THEY PASS THIS UP?!?!?

And then Emma saving Marian & REGINA Goes along with it AND THEN DOESNT LET EMMA RESORT TO KNOCKING HER OUT, like she didn’t let anyone touch Zelena. And what about Seeing Regina meet the old Rumple, how he would taunt her, probably say she’s reverted back to her weaker days.

And COME ON, Regina doing everything she could to set Snow & Charming back on track, and actually knowing some of what’s going on so they could plan better. Plus more magical knowledge.

Oh, and let’s say they still run into Hook. Regina could have been all jealous and pointing out how awful he still is & how he shouldn’t be around their son. Because Regina & Emma would have been talking a lot about Henry, and they could have bonded a little over setting things right with Snow & Charming. And Emma could have asked Regina about her parents. And maybe Regina could have told her how they cast the curse and what she did for them.

I just don’t get it. All that finale was was “epic wish fulfillment” for sleazy Hook and it was SO GROSS and completely irrelevant. What happened to the finales about FAMILY? Because that was not about family. Emma barely talked about Henry. She wasn’t actually given time to appreciate seeing her parents fall in love. All that happened was a lot of heart breaks & scares, so poor Emma is hurt and Hook is there as a shoulder to cry on and project onto him. Like did I miss something? Is Emma a naive teenager again?

I think there could have been something really interesting in Regina seeing herself, how she used to be. It would be SO interesting if she had been the one to save Marion because she couldn’t stand to watch herself kill someone who was innocent, only to bring her back to Storybrooke and discover she had saved her boyfriend’s wife. Watching Regina blame herself for that and struggling that way would be so much more interesting than seeing her blaming Emma for everything again.

I also think it would have been interesting to see Regina be the one to help unite the Charming’s considering their past. I think it would have been interesting if Henry would have gone instead of Hook as well.

At this point, anyone would have made more sense than Hook and it was just forceful to have him run after her instead of the people that the situation ACTUALLY affected. Charming chasing after Emma would have made more sense and then we could have gotten more of the development with that relationship.

But of course the finale would just be two hours of an already forced relationship and end up being all about the romantic union of CS, oh and the cheap gimmick of Emma “finding home” that could have been explained in a two minute narration of a children’s show. 

Seeing Regina struggle to decide whether or not to help unite Snow and Charming would have been GREAT. Torn between the idea that if they never get together, they never defeat her and the idea that if they never get together, she never gets Henry. That would have been some really fascinating and involving character work. 

Seeing Emma and Regina work through their individual issues together and separately in this episode could have been really amazing (not in an romantic SQ-y way. In the way that their dynamic is set up, with Regina and Emma having ENORMOUS reasons to dislike and distrust each other, to be on opposite sides, but ultimately coming together because of Henry, i.e., their family.)

Henry, of course, also would have been a better, more intereting option. TO finally see the world his family comes from, to be a part of that world and history that everyone but him has some part in.

Hook is literally the least interesting option. There is no reason for him to be their thematically or development-wise. The only reason he’s there is to attempt to insert him in to everyone else’s history because of his complete irrelevance. “Epic wish fulfillment” = whish fulfillment for Hook fans and CSers with zero discerning taste. No wish fulfillment whatsoever for fans of good writing.

Robin Thicke is unapologetic about how rapey ‘Blurred Lines’ is, meanwhile the dude who parodied it issues a public apology for one word.

And that is just one reason why I love Weird Al.

It’s great that he’s addressed this but are we really supposed to believe that NO ONE during the extremely lengthy processes of writing a song, recording it, mastering it and animating the music video wouldn’t have brought it up?

Excuse me but how the hell is spastic even remotely insulting?

So I just recently learned that in the UK calling someone spastic means the same thing as calling someone retarded, only much worse.
If it makes people in the UK feel any better, people in the US literally do not know this (like literally no one I have ever met and/or know). Here being spastic is usually meant to mean something along the lines of acting like a hyper-active child (like running around in circles yelling just because they feel like it please be quiet for just 2 minutes type of child). NOBODY here uses it as a slur.
Since Weird Al is a US musician and the US music industry is pretty non-international, yeah actually I think its entirely possible that none of the people who worked on this song actually knew that spastic was considered an awful slur in some parts of the world.
And I’m like 99.9999% sure that Weird Al is genuinely very sorry that he was accidentally offensive.

Just a little update…

I have the prompts for both the Jeff/Annie fics and the metas setting in my inbox, waiting to be written. I got a little bit of a meta written on the drive to Richmond, but then I decided to stay the night, and there was no internet at my grandma’s, so I didn’t have the prompts available. So I will be working on those over the next couple of days, I promise.

I DID get a couple of gifsets made (one I already posted), and I got a gifset and write up almost completely ginished for my movie blog (kikitalksmovies.tumblr.com), so I didn’t totally wast the night just staring at the tv. I did create SOMETHING.
