Hey on the black panther bingo thing what did you mean on white dude slashship i don’t know what that means! Sorry!

By “white dude slashship” I’m referring to the way that fandom likes to zero in on ships centering white dudes in a relationship above everything. (This post I wrote 3 years ago needs to be updated/rewritten, but it covers the basics of my critical feelings.)

In the context of Black Panther stories and why it’s on its own square, I’m talking about things like how folks zeroed in on the second end credit scene rather than the rest of the movie. Fanworks about like… Steve/Bucky honeymooning in Wakanda (which also explains that other square…)
