For once, I do believe I am in the extreme minority of the tumblr TF fandom: I am a feminist who doesn’t give a shit about Windblade!
I think I am also in the extreme minority as I am a feminist who actually enjoyed Furman’s version of Arcee’s origins.
today i got assaulted left and right for saying windblade was more than a feminist’s playtoy
let’s see how they treat you
also hey i like furman’s work on arcee too c:
"assaulted" =/= people on tumblr yelled at me
also you got people pissed off because, while I think your intentions are good, you basically said “stop being happy about Windblade being female, stop talking about it, no stop it’s not important at all” even though you have to know that female representation is important and that more female characters leads to more female readers and a boost in the franchise overall. You even said you had non-TF friends want to pick it up because it was about a female character, written and drawn by women.
like, I don’t get your problem. I really don’t.
my bad on the misuse of the word “assaulted”
people are treating windblade as if she was only important because she’s a woman written and drawn by women and I think that’s fucking stupid
I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, there’s so much more to windblade than just “girl”
and I’m actually afraid about her because of that, as much of people who “hate” her only because she’s a female than by people who defend her only because she’s a female
that’s what bothers me
