I Think I Made You Up Inside My Head
Doug and potential Vlogs

While I’m perfectly aware that Doug doing a video on MLP for his April Fools joke on the first this year means that the chances of him doing it for real in the future is abysmally low now, I still want for him to do it for 3 big reasons.

  1. It’s a legitimately good show and I think he’d grow to really like it, just like he has with Avatar and Adventure Time (remember how confused and disoriented he was with his first few AT Vlogs?)
  2. I, myself, enjoy the show, and I’ll be the first one to admit that I rather selfishly enjoy hearing others talk about it, especially if they’re not super huge fans themselves.
  3. Possibly the most important, but I’m sick and tired of approximately a third of the content creators for the site (and an untold number of fans of TGWTG following in their footsteps) treating the fans of MLP like absolute garbage, and pretty much nobody else calling them out on it lest they be called fedora wearing manchildren, or whatever name it’s cool to call people you don’t understand/like nowadays. This is especially maddening/heartbreaking, given that before his passing Justin was an avid fan of the show and big supporter of the fanbase.

Anyway, I figure since Doug (being the top dog of the site) holds a lot of sway over the opinions of the TGWTG fanbase, it would be nice as a fan of both TGWTG and MLP to be able to express my love for both at the same time without being lambasted or called untrue names. Really, is that so much to ask, for people to be decent to one another even though we all like different shows?

While there are great MLP fans out there, and for a while in the early days of the fandom it was lovely … the fandom has some seriously unpleasant members now, and though they might be a vocal minority, there sure seems to be a lot of them. So I don’t think anyone on the site wants to risk tackling MLP stuff right now. No matter what, they’d get attacked. 

Would that it were so easy to identify creepy misogynists via a hat, but that sadly isn’t the case. It has got me to start distrusting guys I see in fedoras or trilbys, though, just on instinct. 

Not to mention he’s said that while he thinks the ponies are cute, they’re not for him. As an aside, he really doesn’t have much sway over the fanbase. Oh when he parrots their opinions it’s fine, but when he disagrees (just look at all the ableism he got for the glasses thing), they dig in until any semblance of backbone goes away.

I’ve gotten a lot of asks recently asking me what I think of Frozen, for some reason, and I thought I’d just tackle everything here.

I’ll start off by saying that I hated Frozen, but it’s okay if you acknowledge its issues but still love it. Most of what follows are just my opinions, though some elements, including the white-washing and lack of representation, are facts.

What's your problem with Linkara? He's one of the more socially aware people on TGWTG and at least acknowledges his mistakes, apologizes for them, and tries to do better.

Troubles of twitter’s limit. I’ve got no real other issues with him (other than the standard “white guys say a thing that women have been for ages but get all the praise”), my issue was with some MRAs complaining that he’s too feminist for them. I’d have the same issue with people saying the same thing of Lindsay, especially given that she’s said TGWTG’s feminism has to be soft and jokey otherwise teenage boys would freak. I hope I explained myself a bit better?

Hey! How about, instead of policing minorities with every right to be pissed, you go for the people starting hate in the first place?
