Of course they know.
People really need to read the article because Mark Ruffalo’s response was amazing.
He did not ridicule the fans for their slash art. He didn’t say they were gross. He instead GOT EXCITED and praised them for being so creative and taking the characters to heart and running with them.
Also, ugh those fucking two they are so cute
Where can I get one?
i spent like a week off tumblr and i felt so much better mentally but didn’t know why and now that i’m back on it it’s like
this place encourages sadness
like how many posts do you see that say things like “it’s okay to cry all day and lay in bed if that’s what you want to do, because you are wonderful and you’re doing your best” and no
that’s not okay
get out of bed and go outside
because that’s exactly what i was doing, laying in bed all day on tumblr, reblogging posts like “lol i have no life outside of tumblr i’m a loser”. and when i started acting like an actual human being, i felt so much better.
and posts that say things like “haha i’m worthless garbage” that have fifty thousand notes, reinforcing these ideas for lots of people because “hey, if everyone else is thinking it too, that makes it okay”, posts like “i have so much homework but here i am on tumblr haha” that have hundreds of thousands of notes, it’s like a big circlejerk of everyone telling each other that these things are okay and acceptable when by any reasonable adult logic, they are not
this place is so fucking toxic, no wonder everyone on here is depressed
like maybe i’m being a bitch, but the past week that i spent not being here and being told by someone close to me “hey, stop deciding that every day is going to be terrible, stop complaining endlessly and maybe try to deal with some of your problems, go to bed at a normal hour because staying up all night looking at the internet is not okay” is the best week i have had in about a year
I’m reblogging this because it’s important. people pretty much only talk to me on here when I’m really openly in crisis mode. like what, you only like me when I’m feeling like garbage? not when I’m feeling good or just not explicitly stating that?
There are a lot of (emotional) children on Tumblr and the whole “THIS IS JUST THE WAY I AM” attitude was part of what prevented me from coping with my anxiety for a long time. I’ve been thinking about deleting my Tumblr for like a year, but instead I just unfollow negative folks/people who post stuff that’s damaging.
I’m a lot happier on the days when I do stuff that isn’t just this.
Get off your ass and do somethin’.
And by that I mean, actually do somethin’. Don’t just bitch about how other people’s somethin’ is made. Be the change you want to see—don’t just bitch and whine about how other people are doing shit (or aren’t doing shit).
