What I wrote: Black characters get a specific kind of racist fanwork where it’s clear that the author is using fandom and their fanworks to abuse and torture them into place. Those are clearly racist fanworks and exist to harm. This should be something we can do something about.
What someone conveniently ignoring what I’m literally and CLEARLY saying got out of it: Stitch wants all stories with violence against Black characters taken down because she is an ANTI
Like the irony of having BLM in your display as you
A) misrepresent my black ass (and my work) which leads to me getting more harassment
B) appear to argue in favor of fanworks where Black characters are brutalized in order to make nonblack writers and fans happy
Actually this person is really arguing that there can be nothing racist about people gleefully writing fic Black people being abused in a world where it is clear that many non-black people on some level feel fixation with the sight of violence done to Black people.
Do y’all think there aren’t whyte supremacists and their communities in transformative fandom?
But more than that, do you think that a non-black person has the protected right to write torture porn about Black characters they hate and there’s nothing racist about the fixation?
I would honestly love it if all of these fake ass, supremely antiblack assholes (which includes the ones with internalized antiblackness) to take the blm out of their display names and keep my name out of their racist mouths. Because you’re about optics, not anti racism.
There’s a difference between a story where Vivienne (Dragon Age) gets hurt by a villain in a fight and a story where Vivienne is tortured mercilessly and in the notes, the author is like “tee hee, just had to put her in her place”
