hi there i'm sorry to bother you but i want to explain to my friend why homestuck is bad and i want to explain to them why it is and i just want to make sure i'm not missing anything so could you please list things that are bad about it and a little explanation as to why, if it doesn't bother you, thank you so much and sorry for the bother
this will probably be the last homestuck-related thing i answer because really just talking about it makes me uncomfortable but yea homestuck has a lot of shitty offensive jokes and stereotypes. theres a lot of ableist jabs (tavros and mituna, and how the other characters treat them) some transphobic shit that the fandom eats up (march eridan) and racism (the notorious “caucasion joke” when jane went trickster and when people got upset, hussie changed it but was a huge dick about it lol. also “aracial, but definitely not black”).
not to mention all the characters that are personifications of really offensive stuff (kankri is supposed to be a “terrible sjw”, cronus is just disgusting all around with his sexual advances and ableism, also sort of makes fun of the otherkin community and damara is a racist stereotype)
hussie himself is just a shithead. you can read up on shit he’s done here (this includes homestuck and his other projects)
OMG homestuck is not supposed to be taken seriously. If you don’t like it because it doesn’t interest you, that’s cool. I’m okay with that and I’ll respect your opinion. But if you think everyone who reads Homestuck and likes it should go to hell and no one should read Homestuck ever because YOU think it’s offensive, that kind of is rather unfair and dictative of you. It’s not my fault I think is entertaining.
okay 1) i’ve already said multiple times that i don’t care if you like homestuck, i just don’t want to discuss it
2) i’m not the only one who thinks it’s offensive. there are entire blogs dedicated to calling out homestuck’s bullshit
3) i don’t care all that much so go away
yeah it’s okay to like problematic things so long as you can acknowledge and recognise that they’re problematic, but. I won’t be reading Homestuck any time soon.
oh mannnn i really want to do the crush prompt for sid (not that i have any ideas) but tablet
hey i know i have a fraught and passive-aggressive relationship with time magazine but please take like a minute out of your day to vote for laverne cox to be in this year’s time 100 list of the 100 most influential people in the world this year
shit yeah boost this to hell
Would you like it in the vag or ass when I rape you?
At least now that I disabled Anonymous asks, your own face is attached to your pitiful hatemail.
And if you recognize this ugly mug, shoot me a name!
ETA: He’s been tracked down.
HIS NAME IS BRANDON BAYARD AND HE LIVES IN SUPERIOR, WISCONSIN.
Reblog the shit out of this so it shows up on every background search done by every guy trying to hire him ever.
REBLOGGING THIS ALWAYS, FUCK THIS PIECE OF SHIT
Who wants to get in touch with this guy’s parents?
As a part of my personal arsenal of safety tools, I will always call out people who make rape threats, because they are not safe to be left without being called out. We see you, Brandon Bayard. You can’t hide behind plausible deniability or anonymity.
Look, everyone! This is what a human shitstain looks like!
s ighs yeah my. tablet is dead. i have to hold it in increasingly awkward positions for it to work for like thirty seconds. i dunno what i’m gonna do.
come to think of it. my only real hope for ever being able to afford chest surgery is if my asshole grandpa leaves me money in his will when he (finally) kicks it. but he doesn’t know I legally changed my name?? so it would probably be left to my birthname anyway. :|
