This blog is mostly just fangirling over old ladies, and TV shows. I post personal stuff and sometimes political opinions (conservative) but usually just old ladies. :)

We aren’t nearly as overpopulated as people think. If you go to POP.org, they have a lot of information on population growth curves and what it would mean to have so many more people. There are also people who do use abortion as a form of birth control, and they might find a way of preventing the conception of a new life rather than preventing the new life from being born.
Basically, if abortion wasn’t around, many people might be more careful to avoid pregnancy in the first place. That doesn’t mean we wouldn’t have unplanned pregnancies, but we might have fewer.
absolutely!!! we are raising generations with the idea that if they act irresponsible, no big deal, we can just erase it.
if abortions were less available, it would take a generation or two, but in the end people would be CAREFUL. they would respect life more. they would learn responsibility.
life isnt something you can just erase and everything is fixed. people suffer with guilt, depression, they never get over it. they arent “fixed.” the majority of them are broken.
this is literally the greatest subtitling job that has ever been done. someone learned how to speak cat.
Oh, no, of course, you’re right. My mistake.

Tag your frakking fics as Sharon/Provenza!!! Or at least write the ship name in the description of the fic. It really isn’t hard. Browse through my blog for a tutorial on how to do it.
Recently I had the “pleasure” of reading several untagged fics that turned out to be Sharon/Provenza, just because the writers didn’t feel they should list the characters in their fic or mention in the summary that the fic is about a specific ship. This is mostly happening with the Sharon/Provenza fics, and that is why this post is addressed to you. If you like this ship - good for you! I don’t like it and I also don’t like it when you force your ship down my throat just because you want to get more readers.
Cheating your way into getting more people to read your fic is really not cool. If you write good fics and tag them correctly, people who are interested in that ship will read and review. If you don’t tag them, let me assure you, some of the comments you will receive will be quite nasty (no, not from me personally, I’ll just close it and never read any of your fics ever again). Save yourself and other fans the frustration and tag your ships correctly, so each of us can decide whether or not we want to read a fic which may or may not have the ship we like/dislike.
For the record, I neither write, nor read fan fiction. So I don’t really have a dog in this fight.
But, this post is rather condescending and mean-spirited. No one forced you to read a fan fic. You chose to read it. No one tricked you, or forced you into it. Of course, I am making the assumption that the author wasn’t actually sitting beside you at your computer, laptop, or phone and physically holding your eyes open. If they were, please disregard everything else I say.
This fandom, as a whole, is absolutely HORRIBLE at tagging anything. I don’t ship Shandy/Sharondy/whatever you want to call it. And yet, I have it show up on my dash ALL THE FRAKKING TIME(as in multiple times an hour) even though I’ve gone so far as to blacklist everything up to, and including, Tony Denison.
If you’re referring to the author I believe that you are, her tags on tumblr CLEARLY indicate what pairing the story relates to. Even if it’s not, passive-aggressive rants solve absolutely nothing. Now that you know what the author likes to write, just don’t read it. Problem solved.
Look I tag everything, including my fics. Everyone knows what I write. But the way most are going about this, it sound like not tagging fics is fine. So y’all would be cool reading a fic and getting invested in it for a few thousand words, and then all of a sudden, Sharon and Rusty have sex? You’re cool with that are you? Cause I’m not cool with that. I don’t want to read that. I don’t want to be surprised by that. I’m not against everyone having their own ships. I would never say anyone is wrong for shipping what they want. I’m against people manipulating others to read their fics by not being honest. I may not have a problem with you shipping it, but that doesn’t mean I want to spend twenty minutes reading a Sharon/Provenza story, because frankly, I don’t want to spend the time on that. I want to read what I like, and if y’all can’t understand how precious time is on this earth, and how we ALL deserve to spend our time reading what we like, well then I don’t know what else to say.
I’m going to go out on a limb and say that you didn’t actually read what I wrote before responding. Because I clearly state, right there in the very first sentence, that I don’t read fanfiction. I’m not going to be reading a fan fiction where Sharon and Rusty have sex. Because, I don’t read any of it. The whole point of the matter is that the OP is not some poor victim. She read a pairing she didn’t like. Holy fucking cow! OMG! Let’s all get crazy angry and passive-aggressive. Shit happens. There’s one of two ways to deal with it. Let it go, or blow it massively out of proportion. She chose the second option. I mean, why are we even discussing the tagging of a different site on this site? If she honestly wanted the problem fixed, she’d have messaged those authors on that site. She just wanted to vent. And then got mad when everyone didn’t agree. Which is actually kind of amusing to me, because the OP is one of the people that I had to unfollow, for her CONSISTENT failure to tag her Sharon/Andy posts.
Don’t tell people what can or can’t upset them. I rarely read fanfiction because of my ADD, and yesterday I read a short fic that ended up talking about Provenza having feelings for Sharon, which is something I REALLY don’t want to read. It was annoying, yeah, holy fucking moo.
Also, it’s a free world and people are entitled to post whatever they fucking want. You can’t really expect her to go one by one on ff.net and ask people to tag their stories. If you think it’s the right way to do things, by all means, do it yourself.
It always amuses me how people think they can monitor the internet. Let me tell you a little secret - you can’t! The internet is the loosest of all medias. If you can’t deal with it, don’t go online.
This fandom never ceases to amaze me. You’re telling me that I can’t police the internet. Because I told the OP that she can’t police the internet. I never said it couldn’t upset her. I said there were two ways to deal with it. And that she picked the wrong one. And that it was rather hypocritical of her to get bent out of shape over tagging when she fails to tag her Shandy stuff on a consistent basis. She’s more than free to share her opinion. And I’m more than free to share mine. But the biggest fraction of this fandom sure does hate for anyone to have a differing opinion, let alone, stand up and express it.
What you don’t get, is that “wrong” is a matter of opinion. So don’t frakking tell her what is the right way to ask people to tag their stories. Now, have a good day :)
holy crap people get upset about EVERYTHING.
but getting butt hurt about not tagging is crazy. as if them not tagging something *personally* attacked you and hurt you somehow. (not YOU, just you in general lol)
just assume if it isnt tagged with what you want, dont read it!
