im real sick of seeing fuckboy everywhere. Like it makes me sick to my stomach. ive made several posts about it and they didn’t get reblogged or noticed in any way so lets try this again:
"fuckboy" is a slur for a trans male. It’s disgusting and to me is as derogatory as any other prominent transgender slur (EX:tranny, dickgirl, etc). It strips down a transgender male to their parts basically as if they were some sexual object.
please stop using this term or at least fucking TAG it because its really upsetting me and im sure it’s upsetting a lot of trans males too.
lmao holy shit
The term fuckboy is a slang term that originated in black communities to describe any men who are rude, basic, trifling, or in any way fucked up. It has never been trans specific, but if you are seeing it applied to a lot of trans men, there might be a reason for that.
Now please, stop embarrassing yourself.
I CAN’T BREATHE HOW IS THIS REAL LMFAOOOOOOOOOOO
WHAT KIND OF WHITE RE-DEFINING???????????
Oh my gooooooooooodddd
At the end of The First Avenger, Fury is the first dude to walk up to Steve and say, “Sorry to tell you this, but you’ve been asleep for a long time.” At the beginning of The Avengers, Nick drags Steve into the fight, cajoles him, they even have a fun joke bet. Then in The Winter Soldier, Nick trusts Steve over everyone else, goes to him for help, talks to him like a peer, takes his advice.
Steve’s soul interaction with Coulson’s has been “creepy guy who has my cards and died.”
Why do so many people make these relationships the other way around?
i don’t think you understand how important coulson is though. he’s white and has a suit. that’s how important he is.
no, cmon, coulson is charming and humble, fury is a scary authority figure who gets really sarcastic with people. i can see why ficcers would rather ship coulson. if nothing else, someone of fury’s caliber is very difficult to write unless you have some experience of being a stern motherfucker who takes no shit. most ficcers have never mentored anyone, either, it’s a deep mystery to them how it works.
also, hooking up with your boss can be a squicky idea to a lot of people, me included.
These are good points, but I’ve seen in fandoms when the boss character isn’t black— is white or from an anime— no one has any problems having the boss (captain, sensei, professor, manager) and his subordinates fucking like rabbits. there’s actually a lot of kink there. writing sarcastic, angry, reserved authority figures (having a ton of sex) doesn’t daunt amateur ficcers when those authority figures aren’t black. See: Severus Snape, the ultimate stern, scary, sarcastic, overtly nasty asshole who fucks his way through the entirety of Hogwarts and probably a good chunk of the forbidden forest.
Also, see: Coulson is Hawkeye’s boss, nominally, and there is a galloping shit ton of kinkfic that plays on just that dynamic, even though there’s more material between Coulson and his boss, than Hawkeye and his boss. AO3 logs 4,700 results for Coulson/Fury and 11,600 for Coulson/Clint.
You’ll note that Rhodey, Tony Stark’s black friend, gets pretty much the same invisibled treatment by fandom despite being friendly, outgoing, funny, sweet, supportive, and Tony’s best friend since he was a teenager. They have a ton of chemistry in the Iron Man movies. In fandom? Not so much.
Black characters and their chemistry, sexuality, and even their relationships with white characters, are consistently ignored by fic writers who certainly don’t think of themselves as racist, but just don’t…. know what to do about race, I guess, or have quietly internalized that black people just aren’t of any particular importance. It’s a pretty blatant pan-fandom thing. It’s not an isolated ‘Nick Fury is scary’ problem.
And as you said, Coulson is white.
And he does have a suit.
