the official twitter account for the environmental protection agency’s office of water just posted about being a C-list celebrity in kim k hollywood
or “the love interest who is much more than that but it’s reduce at LI by the fandom”
or even “the long-ass post about how all the ladies are awesome and deserves equal treatements and respect”
Under the cut: the enourmous amount of bullshit that is thrown at characters who have love interests, while being 100% awesome on their own.
More specifically: the attitude towards Lydia, Allison, Kira, Malia and Braeden.
why is lydia martin the only female character the fandom has collectively decided to love and respect? why only her? why only fucking her? it literally kills me.
i wanna know because it fucking unfair.
why is it now that lydia is in her weakest moments, on the brink of rising from the ashes, the whole fandom is worried? screaming that she’s been abused by scott and stiles? only acknowledging her grief? but when allison was in the same position, the fandom trended #killallison and made sure that crystal saw it?
why is lydia the only lady given fucking respect in this fandom? why? is it because she didn’t return stiles affection?
why is the fandom so keen on hurting multiple other women, actual actresses, but draws the line at lydia?
i wanna fucking know. why her?
why did my favorite character have to die before she got a 1/16th of the respect lydia gets?
and it is gnawing at me. why does lydia get the chance that allison never got? that erica never got? that cora never got? that kira never got? that malia never got?
why? just why?
i read a post once and it was really interesting. it basically said they identify with lydia because she’s supposed to be really smart. like i’ve even seen somewhere that people said they would hate lydia if she wasn’t a genius. so it’s like the people in this fandom think they’re really smart so they identify with lydia where as they don’t think they can identify with allison or any of the other girls. same with kira tbh she’s awkward so people identify with her and like her. that’s why kira doesn’t get half as much hate as malia
here is the post if you wanna read it
I do get the feeling that fans think Lydia is beyond reproach sometimes, and I think its a self-insert/wish fulfillment thing. Many fans see themselves as Lydia, or they see Lydia as who they wish they could be. Intelligent, popular, beautiful etc. and not to mention for a long time the only girl Stiles had eyes for— Stiles is the fandoms favorite male character. (Nothing wrong with a little self insert or wish fulfilment btw,) but in a way I think they project a lot onto her as well. Like all the outcry about Stiles not being by her side in the last episodes, or the outrage that Stiles dares attempt to move on from her. Lydia doesn’t seem to be particularly hurt or upset by any of these things, but a portion of the fandom seems to be, and I can’t help but think its because they’re projecting a lot their desires onto her. Especially when it comes to Stiles.
I’m also of the opinion that Lydia wouldn’t be as loved as she is if she wasn’t intelligent, because in our society people who are considered intelligent are valued more, as are attractive people. I think Lydia would still have the potential to be an interesting and dynamic character even if she wasn’t a super genius though.

This is the strongest and saddest thing I’ve read in a long time.
Would you want to see Lydia give Stiles a shot?

It’s in order of how much one’s worth from high to low.
Bold names = characters we know
Red = dead
- Names that aren’t on the list (yet): Malia, Peter and Liam
- Scott still is “The hot girl” with 25M behind his name (It’s not really fun to be the hot girl in Beacon Hills now is it ^^)
- Jordan Parrish is on the list with 5M, so what is he exactly?
- The codes were ‘Allison’ and ‘Aiden’, who were both close to Lydia and killed by the Oni, who were controlled by the Nogitsune. So what will the third code be?
- The last part of the list has names with a worth of 21.750.000, so how many names are on it and who?
- Are de codes linked to Lydia and her Banshee powers alone or also linked to ‘The Benefactor’?
- if you are a vegan
