ENLARGE kopaka phantoka

sometimes dumb, ridiculous and/or offensive shit happens in the lego fandom (or fandoms plural i guess given how separate a beast the bionicle fandom is)

we're here to point and laugh and occasionally write long-winded essays about the fandom or even more long-winded reviews of the stuff this fandom's actually about

children's construction toys aren't serious business

if you're looking for unironically GOOD lego stuff though, then you're in the wrong place and want our other blog solace of legoman values (or any one of the countless other good lego blogs out there but eh who cares)

alternatively you're looking for our two other ironic masterpieces, thornax express and BIONICLES ADVENTURS COMIXS

no seriously you're looking for these two trust me

(aka “What if I naturally loved Jesus, like you naturally love guys?”, which pretty much sums up the entire fiasco in one logic-deficient sentence)

So remember how this was a thing earlier in the week?

Yeah, it’s happening again.

good grief we haven’t even gotten around to dissecting the first time properly yet or calling for Velox’s ass to be fired from BZP, and they couldn’t help but kick up another homophobic shitstorm elsewhere?

just

why

ugh I don’t even have the strength to tear into it properly right now (which is probably for the best since the worst of the thread is still yet to come)

Also, let’s take a moment to appreciate that both times so far, both of the base entries have been entries explaining why homophobia is completely and utterly wrong (the first was literally about how it specifically harmed Gato, its author), and both entries have sparked arguments by homophobes defending their disgusting, close-minded ways. That’s arguably the most sickening part of all.

We’ll probably have more to say about this later (hahaha yeah because that totally happened the first time).  In the meantime, this entry by Gato is a very good read on the subject, one which fortunately hasn’t fallen victim to this horseshit (yet).
