Oh snap, Jen just called all of us sending her love “real fans”. Bless.

otherearthly: what did huffpost do?

direboss:

They posted this article basically accusing the writers and cast of OUAT and the fans who do not support SwanQueen of bullying and harassment of the LGBT community. Not only did the writer of this article act as if a fanon ship should be entitled to be represented and coddled by OUAT cast, writers, and its fans, but specifically pointed out tweets Jennifer Morrison made regarding the debacle of not attending an interview about SQ. They essentially painted a target on her back of bullying LGBT fans because she doesn’t pay attention to their fanon ship while promoting the canon ship she is a part of on the show. And yet Lana, the other half of this ship who has also expressed the view that SQ isn’t happening and who supports OutlawQueen isn’t mentioned.

Also, note that they encourage the fans to rise up against this treatment and to continue the behaviour that has caused nothing but tension and disturbance in the fandom because of this ship while mentioning NOTHING WHATSOEVER about Mulan and Aurora, who canonically had romantic feelings and who we should be eager to see getting the limelight again. Nor does it ask us to fight for LGBT representation in general. It is specifically SQ propaganda, demanding the ship get attention it does not deserve.

If this was solely about LGBT representation there would be no issue. But this is misinformation, painting the SQ fandom as victims of bullying purely because the ship they specifically want isn’t happening or being noticed. No one is ENTITLED to have their ship happen. No fanon ship is ENTITLED to be talked about, validated or recognised by writers or cast members. Fight for representation all you want. But there is NO REASON that two PARTICULAR CHARACTERS WHO HAVE ALREADY BEEN PORTRAYED AS CANONICALLY STRAIGHT SHOULD BE FORCED INTO A RELATIONSHIP TO TICK THE BOX OF REPRESENTATION. ESPECIALLY WHEN SAID SHIP IS A VERY BAD EXAMPLE OF A HEALTHY AND LOVING LGBT RELATIONSHIP.

I stepped away for a while but I’m still seething over it so apologies for the outburst.

Seriously, read that last paragraph again. It is extremely insulting and all but names JMO as a bully. And actors CAN CERTAINLY be biased. They are allowed their opinions and they are allowed to promote the canon show, doubly so if they personally enjoy and support it. This coddling mentality among people in fandom about writers and cast being impartial to ships needs to fucking stop.

"Mad was the last kid I saw and he was asleep. He was 3 months old and they put him in my arms and he stayed asleep and they put him in the bath and he stayed asleep and I thought he was narcoleptic or something. Then he opened his eyes and just stared at me for the longest time and I just stared at him and I started crying and he smiled. And it wasn’t that he smiled that he liked me, it was just that I hadn’t held children in my life and I was always considered so dark and I always had so many things that made me feel like maybe I shouldn’t be somebody’s mom because certainly the world has an opinion of me and I’m not so sure about myself and am I gonna be the best mom? So the fact that this little kid seemed at ease gave me the courage to feel like I could make him happy. And so we became a family right then." — Angelina Jolie
