really i think the reason the onceler fandom was so bizarre was because it represented the ultimate conclusion of very proto typical fandom behaviour in a context that was absolutely not able to handle it and it demonstrates itself most effectively with the way oncest happened

because if you check the patterns you’ll see that the immediate characters and ships that everyone gravitates towards in any fandom are the most conventionally attractive guys that tend to be at the center of the work (but occasionally slightly off to the side); sam/dean in supernatural, john/sherlock in sherlock, john/karkat (arguably john/dave? its been a while) in homestuck, ishimaru/mondo in dr1 and hinata/komaeda in dr2, there’s one for teen wolf but i don’t know enough about it to remember what it was

basically that tends to be the pattern for it, but the problem with the lorax is that there was really only one character that fit that mold: the young onceler. who else is there? the lorax? that kid who’s the central character of the framing device for the film? o’hare? tree girl? all you have is this one guy

so in a furious attempt to create something out of nothing, oncest was born; the idea of shipping the young, innocent onceler shown in the films early sequences with his slightly older, (but still “pretty”) more evil self that is portrayed in the “how bad can i be” number (i believe this iteration was referred to as greedler).

but what about the people who don’t like that dynamic? what is there for them? just one guy again. so it began spiralling out of control, AUs upon AUs spawned for the million possible variations of one character, and shipping them with the original, and then shipping them with each other and ignoring the original, and then creating alternate versions of those that are so wildly different from the original canon that they might as well be something else entirely, and it just became this huge ouroboros of a fandom desperately trying to justify its own existence that was inevitably doomed to basically eat itself

its not so much that the onceler fandom is weird, but that fandom in general has bizarre behaviours and it took this one shitty animated film to really demonstrate that maybe we need to chill

REBLOGGING THIS POST WILL BE EQUAL TO YOU SIGNING A PETITION TO STOP SM


WE CAN AT LEAST MAKE A SLIGHT DIFFERENCE.
WE CAN LIVE WITHOUT THEIR MUSIC, BUT THEY CAN’T KEEP LIVING LIKE THIS.
LETS STOP WATCHING SM’S CHANNEL ON YT. LET’S UNFOLLOW SM’S TWITTER, FB, ANYTHING. WE CAN DO THIS
TREND #STOPSMENT EVERYWHERE
I KNOW YOU CARE AS MUCH AS I DO. FIGHTING
(this will probably get no attention. ppl may laugh at me. bc fans are a strong group, but alot of us are weak in mind. we should remeber that these idols aren’t our objects as well, and if we know that they’re treated in injustice, shouldn’t we take action?)






ATTENTION EVEN IF YOU AREN’T A KPOP FAN: This Korean entertainment company is disgusting and should be shut down, it is what I woulf consider a “slave company”. The celebrities under this company are starved with extreme dieting practices, are forced to practice and perform even with injuries(broken fingers, back problems, torn muscles, etc.). The company confiscated their phones, and some haven’t seen their families in YEARS. Not only that but the celebrities and trainees are often hit if they do something against this company’s wishes. They’re overworked and paid extremely little, please, reblog and post this because NOBODY should feel so self-entitled over another person to control them and abuse them the way this company does. Celebrities have tried to stand up to them themselves before but are now banned from many Korean variety shows, more specifically the group JYJ which had filed a law suit against this company, and former Super Junior member Hangeng, who was forced to leave after he lost the case. This is inhumane, this company needs to realize that the celebrities under their name are humans They have rights, and are not objects, and SM does not own them. PLEASE reblog this, and post it on other sites as well. Even something that seems as small as this can go a long way. Thank you so much for reading this.

Please you guys. Let’s really stop them.

i wonder if theyll get away with it this time since they took down easily one of the biggest members in GG…fuck smentbreaking a contract like that is illegal????? the rights of the entertainers arent upheld

Wow

It’s sad from this poster, we know exactly what happened.

this makes me so angry

Whenever I hear people defending rapists by making excuses such as 'they lead them on' or 'did you see what they were wearing' I casually interrupt them and ask if 'my six-year-old-self was asking for it by simply wearing a uniform to school?'.IT. SHUTS. THEM. UP. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

Steps to downloading self-esteem: Get a mirror. Look in the mirror. Rather than picking out flaws, find things you like about yourself. Don't stop at looks, think about the things in other people's personalities that you like and notice where your and other people's personalities overlap. Remind yourself that everyone, and yes I do mean everyone makes mistakes, even characters make mistakes. Realize that you're perfect.
