Awww Tiik, please don't go. Of course you do deserve a well earned break but hopefully this whole boxtrolls dilemma hasn't chased you away from tumblr completely. All opinions are valid. Yours included. <3 Please don't ever forget that.

Thank you, Rene dear!♥
Naaaah I’m too much of a tumblr junkie to leave it… tho I won’t lie that I haven’t missed this site that much these past days, haha

I just need a rest from outraged social justice warriors demonizing films/kickstarters/other people/ etc

Thanks for the message, bby!
Best wishes and good vibes to everyone ~

Sorry about today. I was just worried about a lot of my friends and how they reacted to that scene that I just feel like that scene was unneeded. I still stand by my word but I'm sorry for making such a mess today. I hope that we're still cool and such and I hope you have a better week this week. And I didn't come in to stop you from enjoying the film, I'm just bad at wording posts like that. I hope things are still good between us.

Things are 100% cool between us, dude! *hug*

I never got offended one bit at any of your or anyone else’s responses. You were just voicing your opinion, just like I did and that’s perfectly fine! Disagreeing with someone isn’t a bad thing at all as long as we all respect each other.
And no worries, i’m also bad at wording my opinions sometimes and i’m always worried about coming off as rude, so I totally understand!

Thanks for the good wishes! I also wish you the raddest of weeks♥ 

potatola asked:

Noooo you're amazing and I 100% agree with Boxtrolls post noooo tiki don't go ahhhh :((((

Awww Po, you’re the sweetest! *smooch*
Don’t worry, I won’t go for too long. I’ll still check tumblr for possible messages and notifications, I’ll just avoid my dash for a while.

It’s not just the boxtrolls thing, but lately there’s too much drama popping up on my dash and I usually brush it off but it has been affecting me for some dumb reason *shrugs*

thanks for the message, bby~♥

I won&#8217;t apologize for voicing my opinion (which remains the same), but I do need to state that it was never my intention to offend anyone with my boxtrolls post. I&#8217;ll leave the matter alone now.That being said, Im taking a hiatus from tumblr for a while. I do plan on updating my main blog soon, but no dashboard browsing for me in a while, haha.Cheers!

Don’t let this post about The Boxtrolls being transmisogynistic keep you from watching and enjoying the movie.

Don’t be a sheep and let someone else’s opinion get to your head and create an idea of a film maybe you haven’t even seen . Go see the movie first and then construct…

Panic bby, you have a very good point here, but I dunno if you missed the fact that the person stated in the post that they weren’t a trans woman, so they’re not forming an opinion based on their life experiences.

Instead they were lamenting over the fact that they felt bad over any trans kid that might’ve been in the theater watching the movie and feeling bad about themselves.
This person is PROJECTING themselves through other people to form an opinion of something and that makes it worse in my opinion.

I’m not going to invalidate their feelings, because honestly everyone reacts differently to certain situations and I respect that, but what irks me off is  their need to tell other people not to watch this movie because they got offended at a scene.

"Openly"? His sexuality came up ONCE, at the end of the movie, and was mostly used as shock joke, you know, "Oh, the guy she was all gaga over was into dudes all along, isn’t that hilarious?"

Even if that was the reaction the studio intended for, it doesn’t take away the fact that the guy is openly gay.

You can take it as you want, but don’t take away the facts.

I can, however, say that using something like that for a cheap throwaway punchline doesn’t really help matters. I might even say that that makes it a bit worse if that was the intention.

As I said, take it as you want. I’m not here to try to change your opinion, just state the facts.

You have all the right to feel outraged and offended at a lame punchline that involve’s someone’s sexuality, just like I have all the right to focus instead on how cool is that a movie directed towards kids is acknowledging the gay community, when none of the other big animation companies out there even dares to touch the subject.

Maybe that wasn’t the best way for Laika to introduce a gay character, but they were not mocking or hating on the gay community.

Don’t let this post about The Boxtrolls being transmisogynistic keep you from watching and enjoying the movie.

Don’t be a sheep and let someone else’s opinion get to your head and create an idea of a film maybe you haven’t even seen . Go see the movie first and then construct YOUR OWN opinion of this character in question and the film in general.

Because seriously, do you think a studio that has featured an openly gay character in one of their movies, and a couple of gay men on the trailer for Boxtrolls could be transmysoginist?

Does the person who wrote that post even know the real dept of the term “Misogyny”? 

It makes me sad the number of notes that post has, honestly.
Please don’t let collective thinking dictate your beliefs and opinions! Have some individual thinking.

PS: This is a message from someone who has seen the movie and honestly didn’t feel any kind of hate directed towards the trans community in any way.
