These people. On the internet. Getting so angry over stuff I will never understand. Okay, so you may or may not have heard about this show called Faking It that is currently airing on MTV. Well, it's about two friends who are wrongly assumed and outed as a lesbian couple and once they are outed they become super popular and so they decide to go along with the lie because, well, they are teens and at least the one girl really wants to be popular and accepted. That isn't the end though. One of the girls ends up realizing that she may have feelings for her friend and/or she may be gay/bisexual/pan/whatever.
Before the show even aired its first episode I saw all kinds of people putting it down in the comments sections on the articles on AfterEllen. Apparently Tumblr was even worse with people spewing all kinds of stuff, brining in race and the fact that they are "cis"... for some reason? Thank god I don't even visit Tumblr anymore, I couldn't take the fake bullshit "random" posts of "I woke up today. Went to the supermarket. Some guy was like hey. I went home and ate my nutella and watched Adventure Time. Lyk so randum, ryte?" that get an obscene amount of reblogs. Just... no. Couldn't do it anymore. There just isn't anything there for me anymore. Btw, this is not meantto be a slight to those of you who enjoy Tumblr or the short "random" posts, ect. I enjoyed it for a long while but then... I don't know what happened. I just can't stand the people on there anymore or the popular posts. Except for those of you who I was/am following from here, of course :)
Anyways, before I went on a mini rant, my point was that there has apparently been a lot of complaining and whatnot about the show on Tumblr. I just... I don't get it. It's like people are honestly not ever happy. You hear all this crap about how there are no lesbians (or good bisexuals) on TV, and then when there is or is going to be one, it's not good enough!
There was the L Word: "Oh, well that show was shit. It was only worth it for the half-naked ladies getting it on"
There was Buffy: Well, looked how it (the relationship) turned out!
South of Nowhere: Was shitty teen dramas.
I'm sure there are more examples of people shitting on shows but that's all I can think of right now. But anyways, I mean, some of it is justified, but just because it isn't perfect doesn't mean it isn't worthwhile. IT's like people just love to complain and they won't stop and will never be happy.
I'm not saying this show is going to be amazing but bloody hell, it's only aired one episode. You have no idea how it will turn out. WHy not give it a shot and then make a judgement?
I don't know. I just had to get that out of my system. Hope everybody is doing well!
