I just don’t understand where this concept of ‘fake geek girls’ came from. Like, AT ALL.
Cus when I look for fandom related stuff like 90% of the fan art and the fanfiction and the meta, zines, comics, etc. Like 90% of the shit that I’ve seen is created by women & girls.
so the saddest shortest story is attributed to hemingway:
"For sale: baby shoes, never worn."
and this came to me at breakfast and i thought it was hilarious.
pls don’t ruin hemingway for me.
no i will continue to do that

Detachment is a privilege held by people who aren’t targets.
"why are you so emotional about this" - unaffected people
read this. write it on your hand. repeat it to yourself.
so you can never ask me that again
ok this entire website needs to learn that both internal emotional reactions to stuff and the way a person expresses their emotions externally tend to vary widely among human beings as a matter of course, and that because of this you cannot necessarily tell how many Bad Things have ever happened to a person, or how much they care about a Sad Problem, or whether they are personally affected by an issue thats being discussed, or anything else based solely on how calm or unemotional they seem during a given conversation
and also, learn + know that an extremely blunted affect or a person seeming to consistently and abruptly “detach” in the face of upsetting information/circumstances can be a sign of post-traumatic stress disorder, ie that thing you end up with when, you know, somebody targets you for violence, or something
insisting that people cant get visibly upset and emotional about things that are personally important to them, that are related to traumatic experiences theyve had, that threaten their loved ones, etc. etc. is insensitive and obnoxious
insisting that a person who doesnt get visibly upset and emotional a lot of the time has to perform emotion to be taken seriously as someone with a personal stake in a subject, or assuming that such a person doesnt/cant possibly have, like, a non-privileged background or a traumatic history is…also insensitive and obnoxious
