The good people over at the Geekiary are running a little poll right now on favorite summer shows. In The Flesh is in the lead, as it deserves to be, but the Geekiary writers have noticed that the Teen Wolf fandom is conspicuously absent.
Why might this be? At first, I thought that Teen Wolf PR might just be inept, but as the last couple of seasons have progressed, I’ve changed my mind. It looks like the fandom is the victim of what professionals sometimes call anti-marketing, defined as a set of techniques used to get rid of undesirable customers. Usually, it’s only deployed against customers who are either a) very unprofitable or b) a huge hassle to deal with, and usually only used against a very small number of customers. Occasionally, media-heavy companies will decide to use it to reshape their customer profile, when it isn’t enough add new, desirable customers, you have to get rid of the old ones.
It’s a very risky move. Abercrombie and Fitch is notorious for trying to anti-market to overweight teenagers, “unattractive or uncool” job applicants, and older customers. The strategy blew up in their face a few years ago, and I’m not sure whether their profitability has recovered yet. If you get caught doing this, your brand becomes toxic, and the people who could have saved you by buying your product no longer want to have anything to do with you, while not enough of the new profiled customers now buy from you.
If someone wanted to try to shift the core s1&2 Teen Wolf viewing audience from women over 25 and gay males (aka Team Sterek) to better fit with MTV’s target demographic of women under 25 and (second choice) straight men under 25, how would you do it? Lose the gay subtext and slashiness (anti Sterek, missing Danny, check). Dump the warrior woman (kill off Allison, check). Replace with new stock characters in new core demographic (Malia, Liam, check). Annoy, belittle and insult the undesirable segment (check).
In short, I think they’re not ignoring you at all. I think all of this awfulness has been carefully laid out. What they didn’t plan for is the slide in ratings that this strategy has produced. This show is never going to pick up new viewers fast enough to replace the departing ones.
Tell me I’m wrong.
This is what frustrates me…People don’t like Sansa because she is feminine. It annoys me that people only like the feminine characters when they act like male characters. And they always go on about feminism. Like, you’re rooting for the people who look like boys, who act like boys, who fight like boys. Root for the girls who wear dresses and are intellectually very strong.
#anyone who looks at allison argent and is incapable of understanding the motivation behind her choices and actions is a fucking idiot#it’s hammered home time and time again exactly what sort of upbringing she had#and exactly what values were instilled in her #the upheaval in her life is on par with scott’s#both of them were thrust into the world of werewolves with little preparation and little to no choice#her loss is equal to characters such as stiles and derek#she only has two family members left #the others died horrific deaths#one happened in front of her eyes #the other happened in her bedroom#gerard is her equivalent to peter #her family lied to her for most of a season#just like the rest of them lied to lydia #she was manipulated into immoral actions#just like jackson was turned into a tool of murder as the kanima#that’s not to mention the immense pressure she puts on herself#to the point where her worst fear is the revelation of her weakness#allison argent has been through hell and passed out on the other side#she’s one of the strongest #best developed characters on the show#so what exactly is it that you have trouble understanding??

What makes me so happy about this is that she isn’t telling you you must love your body or that you are obligated to. She saying you have permission to. And that’s important, because there are a lot of reasons why people have trouble with self-love. But the idea that you aren’t supposed to love your body, that you aren’t allowed to for whatever reason, needs to be crushed. If you can’t love you body right now, if your body causes you pain or disphoria or distress, you aren’t required to love it. But you are ALLOWED to. You are entitled to the chance to make peace with your body, if you ever reach a point where you are ready to. No one else should be trying to stop you.
Sometimes I see or read things, and I didn’t realize that I needed them until they are two GIFs of Nicki Minaj and some amazing commentary that come across my dash and I instantly burst in to tears and feel a weight lifted off my chest.
This is so important
I’m trying to figure out what else could convince y’all to watch this but seriously guys.
