Maybe the reason the stereotypical tumblr user is violently vegan, against white men, and hate the gender binary is because they are actually plants
Think about it: if you were a plant, you’d have both sexes on you, and you’d reproduce by having animals eat your fruit. White men decided to sell you into slavery preventing you from growing anywhere you’d like and calling you names like weed.
So maybe the crazy stereotypical tumblr users are really the same one really offended plant who budded out and got multiple accounts to sound like it - excuse me - they are more than one people
Fun game: avoiding using “fuck” or “fucking” because it isn’t edgy, just makes you sound more immature and less educated than you actually are.
It’s the exact same phenomenon you see in every other fandom - people internalizing their entertainment choices so much that any criticism of it is a criticism of them, so they lash out. All you have to do is say “this movie seemed kinda bland/dull/samey/maybe a little sexist” and off they go, acting like you fucked their mother atop a pile of their comic books.
Marvel movieverse guys in particular treat it like a sports team they’re rooting for, and if you look at their behavior through that prism, it all kinda clicks. They’re part of a “team”, they have team spirit, and that team spirit turns into confrontational anger toward anyone who doesn’t match their level of insane enthusiastic cheering, especially if you’re a critical voice with an audience. They’re growing increasingly insular, as well; I’m hearing the “well if you don’t love Marvel movies, don’t go see them!” thing more and more, as though if you haven’t already decided you just love the living fuck out of Captain America 4: Cap Has A Gall Stone before laying eyes on the teaser trailer then you have absolutely no business even watching any of these films and you DEFINITELY are not allowed to have an opinion about any of them.
It’s dumb fan tribalism, as usual. The Marvel stuff was fun to watch and discuss before the fanboys decided NOBODY IS ALLOWED TO HAVE ANY CRITICISMS WHATSOEVER OF ANY OF THIS STUFF. At this point I don’t see discussion of Marvel movies that isn’t 100% overrun with this stupid tribalism garbage.
It was nice while it lasted. Weird that a movie like Guardians of the Galaxy is the place where it turned into this oppressive fanboy anti-discussion horseshit though.
