“the ao3 is a safe space for writers”
i am a writer
with an account on ao3
and i’m telling you
that it’s not a safe space for everyone
considering how much racism towards characters and fans of color
on that website
and how many people are bending over backwards to defend the status quo
and have ‘splained the ao3′s inner workings
suggested that fans of color simply hide offensive content
as if racism isn’t subtle
even in fandom
and it’s rarely fucking tagged –
because how can you tag for something you don’t know you wrote?
i am on my last nerve
with you people
and your fears of a slippery slope
and deeming everything
as part of purity wank
or callout culture
on a post talking explicitly about fandom racism.
if ao3 is a safe space for writers
don’t writers of color deserve to be
Cool story bro. I”m a black writer too, though I”m sure you’ll just call me white again because that’s what you do to people you don’t agree with.
And you wonder why we don’t trust you to decide what is racist.
You cry on and on in this poem because you don’t know how to close a tag yet in another post you claim that Trauma stories aren’t your thing.
No. Listening and caring about other people’s trauma aren’t your thing. You don’t care about other people, you only care about yourself.
Here’s the thing:
you aren’t a very likable person. I don’t like you. I don’t trust you. You have consistently confused “number of angry people shouting with me” as you being on the right side and you are not.
Your trauma doesn’t apply to me and it does not matter to me. It should not matter to anyone else.
You aren’t that fucking special and neither are all the other crybabies who don’t know how to close a fucking tab.
grow up or leave.
Another one. Who are these people? Why are they doing this? That’s also not what this shitty poem is about.
(Also, I’m a super likeable person, thank you very much. It’s something I’ve never understood. People Iike me. I’m going back to my home island for a visit and I know people will literally stop me in the street to talk with me because I am adored and it is like kind of weird.)
