the name's random. fandoms include but are not limited to: yugioh gx. kingdom hearts. the world ends with you. various other animoos. children's cartoons. Great Literature. modernist poets. chuck palahniuk. various movies. awesome ladies. feminism. sassy old men feels. you'll get it as you move though.
Why is it always “Dumbledore is my fave” or “Dumbledore is abusive” and never “Dumbledore is so fucking afraid of letting another dark wizard come to power that he channels his own darkness into training a human weapon from childhood to fight the darkness that he knows he can’t while pretending to be the wise wizard mentor that he wishes he actually was wow that is a super fascinating character and we should write all the fanfiction about it?”
I make this post in fear of hate, however the comments on the above graphics are in no way my opinions on these lovely characters. However being part of this fandom for a long time has made me notice some flaws and this is one of them. This fandom, and I don’t mean just on Tumblr, treats its lady characters badly sometimes and it’s so saddening. I only had to make few Google searches to find comments like the ones above and it makes me so sad. I felt that it was important to make a point to address this problem because I think it’s so desperately sad that the ladies of the fandom are treated so badly. It seems that the male characters of Kingdom Hearts receive a lot of love but when it comes to the ladies they are either attacked for being ‘weak’ or ‘too attractive.’
I mostly wanted to make this post to start a conversation about this. I won’t respond to any hateful messages but if anyone would like to talk to me about my thoughts on the representation of women in Kingdom Hearts I will talk to them with ease.
