Honestly, all I want from Nat and Bucky working together is for her to constantly compare him negatively to Liho.

Like, while they’re dodging bullets, she’ll be all “I don’t have time for you right now, James. I have a life. I have a cat. Well, I don’t have a cat, per se, she’s a stray, I’m a spy, we’re really just like acquaintances, but she doesn’t just make me forget her and then leave me, WHICH IS MORE THAN I CAN SAY FOR SOME PEOPLE. Or cats. Probably. Oh watch out for that- oh, nice shot. ALSO, she’s really fuzzy. Liho, I mean. ARE YOU REALLY FUZZY JAMES NO I THINK THE WINNER HERE IS CLEAR. “

Screencaps of the responses to people’s comments on Tankhead’s non response, since I have a feeling these will disappear pretty soon…. (Full disclosure: I am the person who posted the XKCD comic.)

Reblogging for posterity, and also to add this from the artist’s deviantart (TWs for fat-shaming, sex-shaming, and obviously misogyny):

I’m at that level of furious where I can’t even word how angry I am. The level of hate, objectification, and dehumanization some fans- largely, but not entirely, male fans- have for fans who don’t fit their exacting standards of what a Real Fan should be isn’t just disgusting, it’s harmful.

This, and the story of the little girl scared at the My Little Pony con? They’re all connected.They’re all part of seeing cons as a space for white men and anyone else there as something trying to gain the approval of same.

I’m tempted to go buy starbucks next time I go to a con, just so that if I see anyone in this shirt I can throw it at them.

This WonderCon t-shirt is the nadir of sexist nerd culture humor.

OK, so we could talk about how this is indicative of the ingrained sexism in nerd culture and how it relates to the number of women who wind up getting harassed at sci-fi, comic, and gaming conventions, but seriously, instead, can we talk about how this joke doesn’t even make sense?

“I like fangirls how I like my coffee. I hate coffee.”

Who is the target audience for this sentiment, anyway? How tiny is the Venn diagram crossover for WonderCon attendees who hate women and coffee, and have really bad taste in shirts?

Can someone please name the shitstain booth that attempted to sell this shirt?

The photo I took didn’t include the name, but I’m looking it up so we can discuss on the show.

Check the show notes. It’s from Tankhead. I also found their response to the criticism: https://www.facebook.com/TankheadCustomTees/photos/a.606612806016446.1073741826.606607862683607/788934421117616/?type=1&stream_ref=10 

Here is the text of their response (blockquote) and my rebuttal of their (shitty) response (italics):

Tankhead Custom Tees

So, we’ve apparently received some bad word on our fan girl shirt, with accusations of sexism being thrown at us from a certain few bloggers…

…who have completely ignored our other variant shirt on display or didn’t even bother to ask our take on it.

Your ‘take on it’ is not required. This shirt is sexist and elitist, and it’s a shitty (not funny!) joke aimed a large segment of your supposed demographic.

Apparently it’s only sexism if it is insulting to one gender. Woo double standards.

Uh, yeah, it is. That’s the definition of ‘sexism,’ bro. Sexism, like racism, classism, and all the other -isms, is prejudice plus power. In this arena, men have the power; therefore they can’t be victims of sexism. And your mocking tone isn’t really winning you points here.

Anyways, the fangirl/fanboy shirts can best be explained like this: fangirls/boys =/= fans. Fans are people who like and genuinely respect a fandom, and it’s creators. Fangirls/boys are like those creepy fedora wearing neckbearded bronies, or hetalia fanfiction shippers, who make us all collectively cringe in pain at what they do to the things we love.

Ah yes, let’s split fans into “good” fans and “bad” fans. Good fans are, of course, the people you are trying to sell your wares to (though I bet you’d take money from a brony just as quickly as anything), but those “bad” fans are gross. Not only that, but you’ve grouped slashers (overwhelmingly female-identifying, and generally younger) with a group of men who’ve taken a children’s show and made it all about their dicks. Good to know you’re homophobes as well as misogynists!

No one should ever defend these kinds of people. Seriously, they make the rest of us look bad.

Oh, golly gee! If I’m defending a woman who writes Hetalia fanfic, I’m making the whole geek community look like a bunch of gross perverts! Oh noes! I better quiet down and let the menfolk do all the talking for me, for the good of everyone!

oh and fyi: the ones who bought the shirt design, the fangirl one in particular, half were girls who bought it.

I see what you did there. “But hey, some girls liked it! If you’re pissed off, you clearly need to loosen up. It’s just a bit of fun! God, why do you feminists have to keep talking about this? It’s just a shirt.” (x)

No, but guys, an actual argument that they’re making is that fangirl isn’t a gendered term:

in case you misunderstood the shirt is not directed at female fans the term “fangirl” can go to a man as well[…]
next time check your facts before hunting down someones page looking for attention the term is just for any one person who is apart of anything that disrespects any fandom

It’s just a COINCIDENCE that the gender-neutral term for a person who ~disrespects a fandom~ is girl. How could we have been so stupid?

I know there are plenty of people on tumblr who don’t check the tags of every single person who reblogs their post but tbh I feel better about myself if I just pretend you all don’t exist.

JSYK there’s a special circle of hell for people who reblogged this post without tags.
