Featured Tumblr Blog: Your Fave Is Problematic

[TRIGGER WARNING: RAPE]

I've written on this subject before, but it bears repeating because I am constantly having people flip out when I point out that things they like have problematic elements.

Everything has problematic elements, okay? Pretty much everything. You can still watch your Disney movies, but don't deny that they're racist. They are. Chill.

You know what show I like? I like How I Met Your Mother. I watch it all the time on Netflix. This is a show that lauds a serial rapist. Alright? We all do what we can.

Your Fave Is Problematic is a convenient website that helps to keep everyone aware and honest. It lists celebrities with all of the racist, sexist, homophobic, fatphobic, transphobic, and ableist stuff they've done/said. It's convenient as hell for me when I get questions on Tumblr about why people are complaining about some celebrity.

So if you need to explain to someone why a person they like isn't perfect, do a quick search on Your Fave Is Problematic. It also might be a place you want to avoid if you couldn't deal with finding out your idol is shitty.
