the most aggravating fans are the ones that become huge fans of a villainous character but just can’t handle the fact that the villainous character does villainous things and instead said fans invent a million assbackwards headcanons about how the villain is TOTALLY not a villain at all and is some tragic blob where nothing is their fault even up to and including murder and genocide
i am just so baffled by this
do you ever just kinda wonder what your selling point as a human being or friend is? like, what was the point at which people were like: hey, I’ll keep this human

You know what drives me nuts about transformers (specifically speaking about TFP)?
Their freaking ages.
How old does one of them have to be before they considered an adult? (Like how in the United States, 18+ means you’re an adult but 17- means you’re a child/minor.)
What’s the transformer age equivalent to a human 1 year old? 5 years old? 10 years? 20?
At what point are transformers considered old by their own standards? How long is a bot seen as a young bot?
This shit has been bothering me for days now. It would help if the Aligned timeline actually had same dates to it instead of just going “this happened, and then this happened later” but noooo. I gotta guess how long shit has been happening on my own and try to figure out my character’s age based on my own freaking guesses at time and hope it all makes sense and seems plausible to other people.
The idea of chronological age defining ability or status is actually a construct of more industrial societies that are stratified by qualifications. Most, if not all, other societies rely on functional age to determine abilities and stature, with the only exception being reproductive ability (still relies on your physiological capacity, though).
Personally, in light of Alex Irvine’s interpretation of Cybertronian society, I would assume that a caste system would rely on the functional age as function seems to determine all other aspects of social hierarchy.
You know, very rarely rarely do I see male fans of comic book heroes refer to them by their first names. It’s always “Iron Man” or “Wolverine” or “Captain Marvel” or whatever. But most of the female fans I know refer to them by their first names; Steve, Clint, Carol, etc.
I don’t know if it’s a socialization thing or what, but my theory is that by and large, women are not invited to view male or female superheroes as power fantasies. Even female superheroes are commonly, casually objectified; they don’t look like women, they look like toys for bored, horny men.
So we refer to them by their names and empathize with them on a greater level because we want to see them as people. We aren’t invited into this power fantasy boy’s club. By contrast, men are invited to look at superheroes as a power fantasy, and giving them names and investing too much in their backstory and actual personality sort of kills it somewhat. “Iron Man” is a title; Tony’s a person.
Obviously this is a broad generalization, but seeing as I’ve literally never a woman who reads comics who cares about who could beat up who in a fight and it dominates most male-frequented message boards, well.
Fake geek boys, all of them.
Anyway, I had originally submitted this to Teefury in an attempt to get a shirt printed and they gave me a big tall glass of no, so I fixed it up a little bit and here we are.
