Salem mayor has put her money where her mouth is over local college’s LBGT bigotry

Earlier this summer, Kim Driscoll, the first female mayor of Salem, Mass., pulled funding from Gordon College, a small, Christian liberal arts school located outside Boston. The school had cosponsored a letter to President Obama asking for a religious exemption to his executive order to end employment discrimination based on sexual orientation.

The Sterek Campaign has literally never asked for recognition. We did not put on the Charity Auctions for an award so omfgosh stop saying this

Getting an award was never ever why we did this, like I’m seriously not understanding how people can be pulling this out of their asses so let’s look at the facts.

We hosted two charity events to benefit a wolf sanctuary. At the time, most people didn’t even know our names (other than our creator) because we still kept them hidden. We spent hours and days working behind the scenes to pull it off both years. The amount of planning and work that went into that was astronomical. It was a team effort, but we did it for the wolves

We got an amazing amount of support from fandom. We were so appreciative of everyone that helped us pull it off because we know we couldn’t do it without loads of support. And to those saying we don’t appreciate all of the support, please kindly refer to the two paving stones that were bought with admin $, engraved with Teen Wolf Fandom. Because that achievement belonged to us all. We did that for all of youAnd still, we kept our names hidden. 

We didn’t ask for this award. This award did not even exist when we put on either of our events. We didn’t contact MTV or beg to be recognized. We weren’t contacted by MTV either and frankly did not expect to win next to Misha. The SC was nominated (the organization itself, let’s be clear about that) and won because of the support of the fandom, because of people who appreciated all that we did.

The award was given to the one cast member who has not made secret of his dislike for our ship, despite that our second year’s donation was made in his name. The award was then passed off to a random fan with absolutely no association to the SC or the charity events. It was passed off to a fan simply because he talked about how much the lead actor inspired him during the panel. 

We don’t care about the award/statue. It was given away and it should stay where it is. We don’t want it. We have no ill will towards the fan it was given to and if anyone sends him hate, they’ll have to answer to us because he doesn’t deserve that. Leave him out of it. 

What we did want was the tiniest bit of respect, not only for our org but for the fandom that supported us. Our name is not even mentioned in the article summing up the awards. 

So yes, we are angry. We are insulted and feel used as some big publicity stunt by TPTB.

But don’t you dare diminish what we did. Don’t you dare question our motives.

Anonymous asked: Hi! Sorry to bother you but I'm a little bit out of the loop (timezones are a bitch) - how exactly did this teen wolf fanfiction debacle at the con go down?

Essentially a reporter (ClevverTV I believe) hosted a game where the cast and Jeff read and critiqued excerpts from Teen Wolf fanfiction. As far as we know, they did not get permission from the authors before doing so (if anyone has seen reports that they did, please let me know).

They did not give story context for these excerpts. They didn’t explain plot or character or situation or any of that. They just presented these excerpts, asked the cast to read them, and then watched as Jeff and the cast (as far as I can tell, Holland and Hoechlin were unwilling participants in this part) proceeded to mock and make fun of the writing of the excerpt. Joked about lack of plot and made fun of each of them in general. 

One of these excerpts came from a fic that was a finalist in Teen Wolf’s fanfiction contest of 2012.

It was a shitty move on the part of the show hosting, the PR team that went along with it and Jeff and the cast that went along with it. 

This post and this post are wonderful responses to this bullshit.

Anonymous asked: Do still watch TW?

No, I don’t. The only thing I’ve been watching recently are the ratings and yes, I will be the one to say that I cheer each week when I see how low they are. 

I’m a fan of the first two seasons. I am a fan of most of the characters and I am a fan of some of the actors’ talents.

I’m not a fan of being used, abused and treated like dirt. I’m not a fan of being mocked, made fun of and judged by people who know nothing about us as a fandom, that of Teen Wolf as a whole and of Sterek specifically. I’m not a fan of broken storylines, lack of continuity, raging consent issues, mistreatment of women and POC actors and characters or tired, overused and predictable plotlines. I’m not a fan of arrogant and butthurt writers that can’t handle criticism about literally anything.

And as I’ve said before, I’m not leaving fandom, not really. Today I reached the point where I had to blacklist “teen wolf”, at least for a while, because I feel so let down by so many aspects of the show, the cast, the crew and some of the fans. 

But I whitelisted the things and characters that I like and will continue to blog about them. I still read fanfiction (BECAUSE FANFICTION IS A GLORIOUS AND WONDERFUL THING AND JEFF WISHES HE WAS ON OUR LEVEL) and have been writing when inspiration strikes me (I have like 10 WIPS rn). 

One year ago I was so happy. I was the fixer, every issue on the show and said by TPTB, I had an answer for. I worked so hard to spin everything into something positive because I was so truly filled with hope, trust and belief. 

Today I am not any of those things. I am angry, disappointed and let down. And the fact that I have changed is a direct result to the treatment this community has received by TPTB. They created what I am today. This is their fault.

I am a bitter Teen Wolf fan and as much as I clung to that word just a few weeks ago, I think as of right now, the word “fan” only applies loosely in my case.

An open letter to anyone involved in that mockery that was reading Teen Wolf fanfiction only to make fun of it.

swingsetindecember:

kimmi-watch:

Congratu-fucking-lations to Clever TV (whatever the fuck that is), Jeff Davis and the Teen Wolf Cast who were involved in that frankly ridiculous and mean display of reading aloud snippets of fanfiction.

Just think about what you did there. You took three fanfictions, small snippets from them and took them out of the context of a whole story. And then you went on to ridicule them. So now there are three people out there who are feeling shit about themselves and about their writing.

What if those were the first stories for these writers? What if these were young people who just had their confidence dashed? What if it took all of their courage to post these stories, hoping that someone, anyone, would like them, only to have their work read aloud, out of context, by people who were obviously just waiting for them to be bad?

I hope you are all really proud of yourselves. You may have just made someone vow never to try to write again, which means that they won’t ever improve on their writing because EVERYONE improves their writing over time, but you’ve taken that away from them. Some great piece of literature may never be written now, we’ll never know.

We are your fans. We are what gives the show ratings. We are who make the hype for your show, even though it is declining in quality. And you mock us? You take something that has been happening for as long as there have been works for people to write about and shit all over it. Fanfiction should be heralded, not made fun of.

THIS FUCKING SHOW IS BASICALLY FANFICTION OF A MOTHER FUCKING 80’S MOVIE STARRING MICHAEL J. FOX. ARE YOU KIDDING ME WITH THIS RIGHT NOW????

 I swear to God, I am so sick of being made fun of by these people for enjoying their content. I get to enjoy it in whatever way I choose and you shouldn’t be able to make fun of me for it. You shouldn’t be calling me sick and twisted for liking a non canon pairing or telling me I’m watching it for the wrong reasons. You shouldn’t be downplaying the popularity of one of my ships in the “real world”, only to turn around and play all over that apparently only Tumblr popular ship to get ratings. You shouldn’t be making fun of me for writing fanfiction and taking the show in directions you never would and/or could. 

We are fans. We are the power behind your show. Do you know how many shows get axed because they’re not popular enough? You are popular because of us. And what do you do? You put us down all the time for being fans of your show and being creative about it, being passionate about it. Well guess what, you keep going the way you’re going and no one’s going to make you one of the highest producers of fanworks anymore, that’s a pretty huge thing in this day and age. People are going to stop tuning in and there go your ratings. People are going to be so disenchanted by you making fun of us for one thing or another and they’re not going to tune in to any future works of yours in case it happens again.

Just stop. Stop shitting all over your fans. We love this show, we love these people, and you’re making it so hard for us to continue to love you.

*sighs deeply but is not surprised this happened*

Do you know what two things I find well and truly bitterly amusing?

First: one of the fics mocked was a finalist in Teen Wolf’s official fanfic contest back in 2012.

Second: LESS THAN A WEEK AGO MTV LAUNCHED THE COLLECTIVE.

So, with that in mind, dear mtv and teenwolf powers that be, please explain to us why exactly we should trust you with our fanworks.
