Got another one. It's been a while, too. I've hardly noticed, since I've been busy with OH and Ra's study.
Yes, another trolling moron for your entertainment (and mine), I present---the "Cass Cracker Hater"! I choose this nickname for the lovely little bitch* (*got a reason for being that harsh right off the bat--nothing personal) because she is a huge racist. And I mean... HUGE. But don't take that the wrong way--she's not into "all white people are inferior." At least I don't think so (she might be--not saying with certainty), but she is one of those people who is so "into" racial equality that she's going to bitch out ANYONE that has a problem with a minority race fictional character. In this case: Cassandra Cain. But let's not get ahead of ourselves...
There are zealous racial rights activists, all of whom need every ounce of support they can get, and more power to their cause. They're right in all their tag lines; minorities are unerrepresented, underused, and shoved off to the side all too much. Hell, do you know the list of characters that DC has whitewashed in the Nu52? IT'S F***ING STAGGERING. Not to mention, my fave, the time they took a british white man, Wintergreen, and made im black--JUST TO KILL HIM OFF. He gets no lines, he gets to respect... he's made black, kidnapped by NON-black people, saved by a white man, then later dies SERVING that white man.
SERVING A WHITE MAN. Thank you
Rob Liefeld! You douchebag asswipe~
Yes, I am a white woman, and despite my Native American ancestry, I am white as a ghost. But when someone is racist, they insult BOTH races involved. "How dare you represent MY race while acting like a racist!"
This new troll (who is really not "new", she's been trolling white girl fandoms since at least 2013--but she's new to moi) came to my gallery, ignoring all my NICE Cass fanart, to begin as if she was going to be pleasant about it all. She only said that Steph was a bigger Mary Sue. I don't know much about Steph, though she seemed like she could be cool (COULD, not that she would be, just maybe COULD be), so I was honest about that. I told the commenter that it's possible for Steph to be a Mary Sue, and I asked for a list of reasons they think Steph is Sue. I was glad to meet this person, hoping to use their list of things when I read Steph's story and better gauge the character.
I heard nothing for a long time. When the commenter returned, she left a long comment mostly talking about how horrible I was for being a Steph fan. She was online at the same time as me and as I read her comment, I refreshed the page to find that she edited her comment at least five times, adding more and more to the attack.
It was all about how "we" Steph fans have screwed over Cassandra Cain and how horrible we all are. Some of it did list a couple of factors that made (maybe) Steph a Mary Sue, but it was a total explosion of anti-staph-fan hate. All about how Steph is cherished and Cass gets the shitty end of things, with Steph fans being to blame for everything bad, how Steph fans are always insulting Cass, calling her "waif" and how she should have died and didn't deserve to be Batgirl...
I'm not even a Stephanie Brown fan. I'd like to be, if she's as cool as she seems, but I don't know her well enough. The way I see it, if I don't feel a little "fangirl squee" over a character the way I do with Slade, Tim, Harper, Nightcrawler, etc, then I can't really say "yeah, I'm a fan," even if I do like something.
I went back to my artist comments under the fanart, and to my initial reply to her first seemingly harmless comment, just to see if I said anything of the sort. I checked twice. I didn't see ANYthing like what she was accusing me of having said. In fact, there was nothing about Stephanie at all in anything I said except to say "I don't know much about her--can you tell me more?" I even added a smiley at the end of my message.
Basically... she came looking for a fight, and if I wasn't going to give her one, she was going to invent one.
It may as well have gone;--[I want to yell at this person for insulting my hat, but they didn't insult my hat, so I have to lay some bait to be "justified" in yelling at them] Hey, my hat is in fashion right now.
--Is it? i don't really know anything about hat fashion, but maybe that fad is in. Can you tell me more about the current fads?
--MY HAT IS TOO FUCKING IN STYLE, ALL YOU HAT HATERS HATE ON OUR HATS, YOU BASTARDS!!!
A quick google took me to their tumblr, where there was, of course, a lot of Cass stuff (yay
) and the last post to be reblogged was about ignoring the negative art of others, and if you encounter negative art, you should plan to make your own POSITIVE art to counter it, but NOT to comment in negativity on it. I laughed. I also found an old post on her tumblr that was a HUUUUGE rant about basically the same things she screamed at me over. But that rant was aimed at a certain other tumblrite who she felt had betrayed her and all Cass fans. Why? Because the other tumblrite was a Steph fan who, GASP, was glad that Stephanie was brought into the Nu52. How dare she!
Bottom line is this person is a racist. She values a fictional character for NOTHING but her race, and is violently against characters that are not her race, to the point of admitting she hates on white, blonde-haired-blue-eyed characters BECAUSE they're white, have blonde hair, and blue eyes.
Hey, people can't help it that they're born the way they're born. And, although I sincerely DO believe there should be more diversity in comic character listings, it's realistic enough, at least. Whites make up the majority, so the fact that whites make up the majority of comic characters makes sense. (but it would
still be nice to have more PoCs).
Due to the heavy racism used by this troll-brat* and her unhealthy racist love for Cassandra Cain, she has been dubbed "Cass Cracker Hater" for anonymity. * troll brats are not "real" trolls, and it's high-time I started pointing that out more often. Most negative people I encounter are not "trolls", but "troll brats." Real trolls are more calculating, they aren't angry, they just want to stir up (negative) energy. Troll-brats are more like bullies, picking on people and raging about something, usually in genuine anger.
Now, Cracker Hater, I do understand your thoughts and feeling about there needing to be more diversity in comic book characters, but people like you shame the industry. You shame feminist movements, making us all look bad by acting in such psychotic and violent manners to ANYONE that you choose to discriminate against for their race or the race of their fictional heroes.
You say to me that I'm undeserving of decent treatment or respect because I made that fanart and tagged it so that all Cass fans were forced to see it and, what? Cry because of it? What about the Cass fans that are open-minded and LOVED that as a joke? Do they not matter? And why not? Why should people with jokes not tag them for others who like those jokes? Just because, supposedly, the majority of Cass fans can't take the joke in a healthy way? That means, because of the majority of white people in reality, there should NOT be more minority characters in comics. Your behavior sabotages your cause. You act this way and it only makes, Cass, and other Cass fans look bad. It pushes you and Asians farther back, and you should be ASHAMED.
You're not HELPING, you're HURTING. As they say, if you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem--STOP being part of the problem and start being part of the Goddamn solution.
(sorry, I don't usually take the lord's name in vain, but that's the movie quote I recall... I forget from where)
By your own logic, you do not deserve decent treatment, nor respect. And with your final tags to your comment about "I'm not going to give a fuck about you because you don't give a fuck about me," you lower yourself to the level of your enemies--which I am not among. You stoop to such psychotic lows when you could be fighting hate with love.
You are pathetic and you need to take a good hard look at yourself and decide if you're happy with your angry and violent behavior.
Know that Cass would not approve.
Someone bullying others in her name? Hell no. Not unless she's a bloodthirsty warmonger consumed by hate and violence... just like she was raised to be.
This tumblr post
was for you. You may view my thoughts on Cass in the beginning of it. It's rather nice and it's how I really feel about Cass. Not all of it, but the gist is there.
I hope you find peace someday. Find something worth living for that's not hate or anger-driven.
