If there is a small set of rules everyone in any fandom, anywhere, should know about, it is this:
- Respect the actors’ private lives and their rights to be with their family and go into public spaces without being mobbed.
- Understand the actor is not the character
- Sometimes the ship isn’t canon and you will have to accept that. (Do not bring it up to the actors unless they ask, and even then be polite about it.)
- Do not
- Do not
- Do not try and show the actors fanfiction.
Protesters are angry about these strange negotiations to release protesters. What kind of practice is this?
When police start using terrorist hijacker tactics… WTF
Wow. The DoJ needs to come in and start that whole fucking police force all over again, from the ground up.
If people who weren’t wearing uniforms were doing this it would be criminal. It should be criminal. When bank robbers do this, it’s still criminal. WHAT THE FUCK IS THE WHITE HOUSE DOING ABOUT THIS?

"That’s actually a running joke on set. Whenever someone’s like, “I don’t understand why my character would do this,” or, “This feels awkward,” the director — or whoever — will be like, “Guys, this is a show about werewolves. Just do it.”"-

I thought I was beyond being surprised by how awful Teen Wolf has become, but then… this.
This? This right here?
This perfectly explains the declining quality of the show.
"If female fans are dismissed more easily, then so are their interests, their spaces, and their primary forms of engagement. Or, said differently, gender discrimination occurs on the level of the fan, the fan activity, and the fannish investment. There is a ready truism that enthusiasm for typically male fan objects, such as sports and even music, are generally accepted whereas female fan interests are much more readily mocked. Likewise, fangirls are mocked as is fan fiction, an activity more commonly ascribed to females. More than that, affect and forms of fannish investment get policed along gender lines, so that obsessively collecting comic books or speaking Klingon is more acceptable within and outside of fandom than creating fan vids or cosplaying. Even the same behavior gets read differently when women do it: sexualizing celebrities, for example, is accepted and expected among men but gets quickly read as inappropriate when done by women."- "Geek hierarchies, boundary policing, and the gendering of the good fan" Kristina Busse, Participations 10.1 (2013)
