No, I’m not talking about the nonsensical bullying of people into conforming to certain body types or commands on where they’re allowed to put their breasts… I’m talking about tumblr’s crazy ability to shove so many damn gifs of TV shows down my throat that I eventually give in and see what’s so special. First it was Misfits, then Sherlock, and now — I don’t even particularly like cartoons, children’s shows, or anime-esque art styles (yes I know there are a bajillion distinctions and misconceptions about that definition, you know exactly what I mean) — and yet endless scrolling past fan fiction, fan art, gif collections, and people ranging from young girls to grown men exclaiming things like “ALL THE FEELS” and “I’M CRYING, adasdhjbasdlabhd” finally convinced me to give in to Legend of Korra. I have no regrets. This is weirdly fucking awesome.
Thank you, tumblr, for beating me over the head so much with your fandoms that I can’t help but join them.
