"Fans are generally nerds. They’re people who are more thoughtful than your average person and also a little more devoted. They’re people who can obsess over things, and really get into the minutiae, and who may also be more likely to step into a fantasy world.

They spend more time at their computers, more time reading books, more time imagining. I think genre and fantasy shows like Supernatural appeal to these people, and I think that disproportionately, those are also people who are seeking greater community in their lives. I’ve met a lot of people in fandom who for one reason or another have felt like they don’t totally fit in to normal society. For them, this fandom has served as a conduit to finding one another—it has helped them forge community. And I think, in a nutshell, that feeling of community is what makes fandom so powerful.

I did a global scavenger hunt for the past two years called GISHWHES (the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen). At every convention since, at least a half-dozen people have come up to me and said something, sometimes (no joke) with tears welling in their eyes, about how transformative the experience was for them. Their best friends are now people they met on their team, or their roommates are people they met on their team, or they were agoraphobic and hadn’t left the house for years and now a curtain has been lifted. I met a woman who had not been out of her house in three years before participating in GISHWHES. She was trembling and crying; it had been a major breakthrough for her. When I hear things like that, I can’t help tearing up myself. It makes this job that I have lucked into so much more fulfilling. For some people, fandom is an essential and powerful force in their lives. For others, fandom serves as a whimsical little romp or an erotic fantasy or a writing workshop. For me, Sera Gamble was right – fandom has changed my life."

#this is not an exaggeration okay #children do say this #children do wonder why they can’t find themselves in the media #don’t fucking tell me it doesn’t matter #it matters so much #children NEED to see themselves represented #or else they grow up feeling inferior and not worthy

okay, story time: i’m a resident actor a children’s theatre company, and we just did peter pan. i was cast as peter because i’m the only one who looks young enough to play the part; but aside from looking young, i look nothing like peter pan. he’s this little white boy with reddish brown hair and i’m an arab/hispanic queer with black hair and freckles. 

our company has a really devoted following, and these kids are reeeally young. after every show, we do autographs as the characters and have to keep up the act, because to a lot of these really young kids, we are who we pretend to be on stage. that terrified me. i’ve done autograph sessions in-character before, but never as such a well-loved character. who, again, is white. i was worried about what children might say.

over the course of the production, we must have performed for close to 500 kids, between the shows we did for families and the shows we did for school field trips.

and i distinctly remember one little white girl who came up to me with a DVD copy of disney’s peter pan, and she had this adorable tinkerbell dress on, and she just stared at me wide-eyed and after a while she said “i have all your movies!!”

first of all, if you don’t think that’s the cutest thing ever, please leave.

and when i asked her what she wanted me to sign, she handed me her DVD and said “by your face.” and she points right at this little white redheaded peter pan with pointy ears who is clearly not me, as if she can’t tell the difference… or she can, and she doesn’t care. similar things happened with different children, but it never lost its charm for me. on the contrary, it really warmed my heart.

by that same token there were many children of color who were affected by seeing a brown peter pan. a lot of them (usually older children) and/or their parents ask me how i got into acting, and if i had any advice for how to get into it. it meant a lot to me that there’s this whole generation of children of color who are going to pursue the arts, because even though i live in a very diverse area, our theatre landscape is still very whitewashed.

anyway, what i’m trying to say isn’t just that representation matters, which it does. what i’m also trying to say is that one less white face in the crowd isn’t going to hurt anyone. i feel like i’ve heard time and again that white people can only identify with white characters, and the whole point of my story is that that’s obviously not true. that kind of behavior, where people only empathize with characters who look like them, has to be taught. and that kind of behavior is racism.

bolding is mine, because that last bit really knocked it out of the park for me

What about the men? Even if an actual woman was actually raped, this will never ever matter. The first thing that is important if a woman was raped (partly because someone had no social awareness and contributed to that situation by leaving her in an unsafe situation she tried to avoid), IS apparently the hypothetical male this never happened to, and how he would have been treated, and women wanting special treatment apparently. Because there is no way even the story about an actual woman havin been raped could actually be about this woman, and not about a man and how unfair this fuss is because it is not about him.

I think this second part was yours too, so I combined the images here.
