Jim is so #tacky.
Sorry I’ve been so #inactive.
See what I did there?

I have two messages like this in my inbox. I’m just going to respond to this message, as my response is the same for both.
I completely understand the anger and the disgust that bethylers feel about the petty, cowardly, and malicious things that were put on twitter. You have every reason to be disgusted with it because putting those things on twitter was truly abhorrent and something that only the lowest kind of person would do. There is no defending the people who did this.
However, I’m going to have to tell you that I don’t feel that I need to apologize to bethylers, or that carylers as a whole need to do so. The only people who need to apologize are the cowardly and petty individuals who posted those things on twitter and who encouraged it by making it trend on twitter. I’m not even on twitter. I had absolutely nothing to do with those disgusting actions, so I have nothing for which I need to apologize.
I feel that the same holds for when there have been a few petty individuals from the bethyl ship doing similar things. Bethylers DO NOT need to apologize to carylers for the actions of a few petty and cowardly individuals from the bethyl ship. Bethylers as a whole ARE NOT responsible for that. Only the people who perform those deplorable actions need to apologize.
It was never trending on twitter. It was like 5 girls doing that bs
Good to know. The anon who sent me this seemed to think it trended on twitter and I took his/her word for it. I wouldn’t know that myself, as I don’t go on twitter.
OK as one of the people who tweeted #killpedodaryl, nine tweets or retweets, I might add, I want to say how ridiculous the overblown reaction to it has been. I am only talking about this one, I had no idea there was a #slutkinney and no idea who participated. The fact is that hashtag was spread around by “the other ship” far more than any of us. If it’s so offensive and horrible why retweet it all over the damn place? and why use it to attack people and put real people’s real lives and livelihoods, who had nothing to do with it I might add, in jeopardy?
The outrage and self superiority has been mind boggling. I’m really glad we could give you all something to feel better about yourselves over. I would just like to know how speaking our minds and reacting in anger to a disgusting article in which two middle aged men made light of a sexual relationship, a threesome even, involving a girl who is barely 18 was cowardly and petty. Where was the righteous indignation about that? You work yourselves up into a frenzy over a hashtag and nothing over the article the hashtag was in response to? Where was the outrage over a person’s private information being spewed all over the internet by venomous losers who were “out for blood”?
Did any of you come down off your high horse long enough to actually read the tweets? Because if you had you’d see that there was nothing nasty, mean, or inappropriate. Yes, the hashtag used could be considered inflammatory. More inflammatory, and triggering for some of us, than a predatory relationship between a teenage girl and a middle aged friend of her recently deceased father? Of all the things to get your panties in a bunch over you pick a hashtag?
The word pedo was used because a relationship between Daryl and Beth gives off creepy “pedo” vibes. The actual technical term for a middle aged man who preys upon girls 16-18 is less known and so would have been less impactful. I’m pretty sure we are all fully aware of the definition of pedophila which is why we did not specifically call Daryl that name. If by a snowball’s chance in hell, that ship ever went canon a few years would get Daryl off that hook. He’d get off on a technicality. Super swell guy, right?
Further it wasn’t even a call to kill Daryl, you know the character, a work of fiction, aka not a real person, but rather to let TPTB know we don’t want to see Daryl go down that road. Kill the creepy “pedoesque” vibes that trolling this disgusting ship gives off. That’s what it meant.
Could a different hastag have been used? Sure. But don’t act like what we did was worse than the article itself. Your disgust is misplaced! Save it for TPTB trolling this ship in the first place and for two creepy middle aged men so casually referring to a threesome between a traumatized teenager and two middle aged adults in the press.
If you are one of the people who thinks that ship is fine and there’s nothing wrong with it then this post is not for you. You are too far gone and I have nothing to say to you.
I think I just made a Walking Dead political cartoon.
Anyway this is just a quick doodle to illustrate my distaste for NR’s thoughtless remarks and a reminder that Carol and Beth are friends, and the thought of them being pitted together against a man is patriarchal and vile.
oohhshiny when ever she posts a new manip-
Sorry guys, it’s not that great, there’s a lot of flaws in this one.
Everyone Else In The World-
UM NO IT’S ACTUALLY QUITE FUCKING AMAZING ACTUALLY IT IS BELLIGERENTLY FANTASTIC TO THE POINT WHERE MY SYSTEM CAN’T HANDLE THIS MUCH WIN I MIGHT POOP RAINBOWS AFTER SEEING THESE POSTS
I’m 42 and I’m nursing my 5-month-old daughter as I type, so….
Honey, do you have a fucking death wish?
My blog, my headcanon, my rules!
And just for the record, it was never stated on the show how old Carol is(or Daryl for that matter, and some people still think he’s in his 20s lmao!)
So Carol could be in her late 30s -early 40s..
Now I don’t know how much you know about human biology but women that age are definitely able to have babies!
"I swear to god, if you reply to this with any kind of hateful CAROL’S TOO OLD TO HAVE BABIES bullshit, I am going to find you and I will fucking eat you alive"
Just gonna add my two cents here. I would guess that Carol is early to mid 40s. Women in their 40s can have babies. There are complications that arise the older that a woman is when she conceives (and actually, the same holds for men, where their sperm is less viable as they age). But it’s not impossible.
My personal headcanon is that Carol had her tubes tied after having Sophia because Ed didn’t want anymore children, but Carol did. I think it would make Carol/Daryl more interesting if they have to grapple with this together. I’m sure that they each would have reservations about having children in this world, but I also think they would be kind of sad that they don’t even have a choice of whether or not they want to try.Your post got me interested so I googled it and I have to say mother nature is a real freak… there are women out there who conceived naturally and gave birth to children well after 60. And it seems you can still have ‘accidents’ and end up pregnant even after menopause (the chances are very low but it apparently happens sometimes)… o.0 …

Just a reminder that if Carol is the one that leads the groups escape, it will be the second time she has saved the whole group from certain death.
