Waterfall's resident Mario fan. Name: Math/Mathematics
Apparently Nickelodeon's doing Hey Arnold! and Rugrats NFTs, which is already bad, but I swear to God if they make Spongebob NFTs I'll get so mad I'll pop a blood vein, die and then haunt their asses.
Not happy 4th of July. Sad 4th of July. Angry 4th of July. Absolutely exhausted 4th of July.
Seeing a form asking for pronouns and it's like. Thanks for asking but I also don't feel comfortable answering.
What if you wanted to speak in-depth about aspec experiences but your time on Tumblr during the peak of aspec exclusionism and people acting like anything aspec was ""cringe"" made you hesitant to talk about anything that could be considered too """mogai."""
Also trying to be hopeful about 2022 but I've heard we might get another freeze/blizzard like we did the start of this year. It's supposed to be not as bad, but that still ain't a nice start.
My dad's watching this TikTok of, like, coins falling while some dude keeps talking and it's probably already a loud TikTok but then Dad has his phone turned up all the way and it's driving me up a wall.supermario
Literally right after I posted this that TikTok stopped. He's still watching TikTok with the volume all the way up but I'm unfortunately at least somewhat used to that.

Hmm... remembered a thing. (Slight arophobia I guess??)
(If you do happen to know the comic I'm talking about somehow, I ask that you don't name it either in a comment, repour or in the tags. I'm not trying to generate hate toward the comic/person, since this really isn't an individual issue, but a multi-fandom issue.)
Holy fucking shit.
Something that bothered me on Tumblr that I haven't seen here would be posts where someone would have the image up of the transphobic description of Birdo/Birdetta from the Super Mario Bros. 2 manual and then have a caption like, "Canon trans character!" or something else meant to be positive. I'm not saying their intent was bad, but it got kinda tiring and irritating to see a really transphobic description framed as a good thing.
Yes, Birdo/Birdetta is canonically a trans woman, but this has consistently been shown only through transphobic ways. This isn't even old news. As recent as Super Mario Party and Mario Tennis Aces, when playing on the British English versions of the games, she is misgendered rather than referred to with she/her pronouns. So, yeah, we have a canon trans girl, but at the expense of surplus amounts of transphobia.
I need the world to stop.
Re: that post about large fandoms, while I usually just stick to the fandom-fandom side of Mario (as in, the sector of the Mario fandom that focuses more on the characters and canon and produces fan art/fan fiction, etc.), I can't exactly ignore the people who take the games way too seriously.
When Origami King was just revealed to come out soon, I straight up refused to look up anything Mario related because I knew I was going to see some bullshit.
Oh? Feeling sad and reflective? I better drown it out with Minecraft videos.
