I am tired of all these Marvel/Avenger’s White dudebro slash pairings on my dash.
Yes. It’s true fax.
Hmm, let me justify that. And narrow it down.
It’s not the slashing in general I dislike at all. It’s the pairings I keep seeing.
All the White ones.
The misogyny that tends to crop up in the slashing fandom is one thing (and oh, what a gross and pervasive thing it is) but in addition, I’m seeing this NO INTERRACIAL COUPLES NOPE NOT EVER trend.
Fandom look at your life. Look at your (slashing) choices.
Specifically in regards to Tony.
Tony Stark came with pre-established shipping fodder, yet everyone wants to mash his face together with Steve’s?
What about Rhodey?
You know, Rhodey?
Tony’s best friend?
Sometimes takes on the role of War Machine?
Tony called him “Honey Bear”, once?
The Black guy?
Whoops, that’s probably where I lost y’all.
am utterly fucking inundatedsee a lot of White!Avenger & Co. ships (Tony and Steve! Tony and Thor! Tony and Bruce! Tony and Clint! Tony and Loki ffs) but Dash, there is an unacceptable lack of all things Tony/Rhodey. Where is the shipping? Where is the art? The fics? The posts?
DO YOU KNOW HOW FUCKING FAR INTO THE TAGS I HAD TO DIG TO FIND ANYTHING?
TOO FAR, CONSIDERING THE AMOUNT OF OPPURTUNITY YOU’RE PRESENTED WITH IN CANON:
and I mean guys c’mon
HOW DO I NEVER SEE THIS SHIPPED?
TL;DR: The erasure of characters of color in the slash-shipping circles is gross and should stop.
No, your post is better than mine.
It came with visuals. :D
