“I think she’d be in a crack den somewhere! I’d like to think that she fixed up, I’d like to think that she got with Cook and they had nice little babies and they’re really happy but I doubt very much that’s what happened!”—
Kaya Scodelario, asked what she thought Effy would be doing now x (via complexgirl)
BUT TONY THOUGH. I choose to believe that even if the happy Cook ending didn’t happen, Tony found a way to save his sister from total wreckage.
a) simon killed his probation worker that he was in love with and kept her body in the freezer whilst eating a popsicle next to her dead body (with a cute face on, like “oh whoopy, I guess!”)
and b) he was in the process of molesting Kelly when he was invisible but stopped when he thought someone came by
to me he’ll always be a creep tbh
I feel like I’m going to sound as though I’m justifying what Simon has done and how much of a creep he was, so before I comment, I want to emphasize that I don’t think there is any excuse for his previous behavior. Also, I haven’t watched the first two seasons in awhile, so I’m not sure if I have any legs to stand on!
“I don’t mean to upset anyone by saying this, but it is just kind of a known fact that a lot of gay kids are very promiscuous and non-exclusive with each other when they have relationships, which is really sad.”—
I think people who take it the way you are taking it shiphassailed are not being fair to Chris. I agree with Paulo, you are projecting, taking what he said as a condemnation of your choices instead of a reflection of his own experience. So even though you are entitled to your own feelings, I do not think you are considering anyone else’s but your own (including Chris’s or anyone who might agree with him and disagree with you). You are making this about yourself and ignoring context and intent. You are so ready to be offended that you assume the worst instead of reflecting on what was actually meant. You are also disregarding everything Chris has done and said for this one thing. If what Chris is doing is “slut shaming,” what you are doing is monogamy shaming by assuming those that chose monogamy automatically condemn those who don’t.
I’m actually near speechless because it seems clear that you have not actually read anything I have written. You are also making enormous assumptions about me that, unfortunately for you, don’t pan out at all - I’m a straight adult who has never been promiscuous or nonmonogamous in my entire life. Nothing Chris said in that quote applies to me in any way. I have no personal reason to criticize his implications. I am criticizing them for social and philosophical reasons. It’s impossible for me to be “making this about myself” because it has absolutely nothing to do with my life.
Secondly, those blindly defending Chris here are the ones ignoring context and the plain words of the quote. He explicitly said it is a “known fact” that gay teens are promiscuous and nonmonogamous. He explicitly said that this is “sad.” His words explicitly make zero acknowledgement of nonmonogamy or sexual promiscuity as legitimate personal sexual choices, and instead very clearly imply that gay teens making those sexual choices are “sad.” He is slut shaming here - he’s calling promiscuity sad and hoping that Kurt and Blaine will show people that there is a “better” choice out there. Frankly, although I gave him a pass because it was obviously said in a joking manner, the fact that he’s said things like “kids are whores” before implies that this is, in fact, Chris’s attitude toward people who choose to be sexually prolific and/or nonmonogamous.
I also have literally no idea what basis you have for saying I am “disregarding everything Chris has done and said for this one thing.” Again, Chris is my favorite celebrity. I love him. I think he is absolutely fantastic. I constantly praise him for essentially everything he does and will continue to do so when warranted. Nothing I have done or said all afternoon goes toward disregarding anything positive about Chris’s life or work. He’s not perfect, and he has said something problematic. It’s okay for me to point that out.
lol thank you. I’m 24, have never romantically kissed or even HELD HANDS with another person, of any gender, but I’m still disappointed in Chris’s word choice and slut shaming. I suppose I can understand what drove him to say it, but that doesn’t make it less problematic.
