This be me, Nick. As my name implies I am male, and I am of the age of 19.
Despite the saurian name, my blog primarily focuses around Star Wars and more specifically Star Wars: The Clone Wars. I write episode reviews, live blogs, and just general commentaries and features for the show in general. I also reblog graphics and other posts about the series that I find entertaining, neat, or well done. In short, there's a lot of Clone Wars.
I do sometimes also reblog other things such as Marvel comics, gifs from films I enjoy, or other sci-fi franchises. However, I do try to keep things focused.
This is also my personal blog. So there may be some whining/personal stuff that I post time to time.
I'm a pretty open dude. Send me some questions regarding whatever.
Overall, enjoy yourself. I do this as much for the people on here who seem to enjoy the stuff I do as for myself. I am always willing to talk. Have a good day!
men get into something not aimed at their gender: get special titles like “brony.” recognition by creators. heralded for defying gender appeal. get documentary.
women get into something not aimed at their gender: not real fans. probably secret friend zone warriors deadset on erasing men from the human race. get insulting demeaning memes and sexual harassment.
Except Brony’s still aren’t accepted by the majority of the population and are often still considered sexual deviants or ridiculed. It helps to keep in mind a lot of the world outside of Tumblr or the general internet when it comes to how people react to things.
Women do get a lot of crap from fandoms, but have you seen the amount of following that things like The Avengers and the new Star Trek or Hobbit movies have received from the female gender? I recall seeing a video of two female fans for The Hobbit getting very excited over the recent trailer for The Desolation of Smaug. The actual cast of the movie made a response to it and the video was even featured on the evening news in New Zealand. They were not ridiculed in the slightest.
A lot of this boils down to insecurities on both sides. Many of the men who have an interest in things like comics or sci-fi went through a period of adolescence where they were often mocked or ostracized for this. While this likely occurred from both genders, it probably hurt just as hard or worse to hear this from people from the sex or gender they were attracted to. To see them embrace it years later can be a bit biting and brings back bad memories. Does it warrant the attacks and insults? Certainly not, but its where a lot of this behavior comes from.
I also recognize some of the frustration that many fans have that a lot of new fans are brought on due to sex appeal. The fact that the Avengers, Kirk and Spock, Fili and Kili, etc. are a couple of pretty great looking mencertainly added to the sudden influx of female fans. There’s nothing wrong with that, but I can understand a long time fan being a bit frustrated that all it took was a couple of hot guys to draw in new viewership.
Fact of the matter is, both genders get backlash for having geeky interests. Its still part of the reason why the word exists. Should men be more accepting of women fans? Certainly! But let’s not fool ourselves into thinking that men have it great all the the time or are out there simply to cause women pain/have sex.
The world is a lot more complicated than “men bad, women good”. Its not what sensationalist communities like Tumblr would lead you to believe.

And he can’t dance.
Lulz, not working because of lack of gym membership does not mean lack of motivation.
Maybe I don’t work out here, because having one twenty pound weight does not allow for a good work out routine, and we live in a mother fucking valley where temperatures often reach eighty or above. I’m not going to run up gigantic hills every day just to get a work out in.
