Teen Wolf has a launched a website for “Teen Wolf fans”, which aims to have fans upload their fanwork—including fanfic, fanwork, music, poems, and meta. 
This is NOT a safe place for Teen Wolf fans (or any fans for that matter) to gather, and post their fanwork. MTV and Teen Wolf reserve the right to use your creations, and make profit from them. I, personally, find this unacceptable. Your creations, are your creations. Not theirs.

What exactly does this mean?
It means that they are going to use your work, your creations, for promotion and advertisement for their show—to earn themselves money—but you will NOT earn anything in return. 
You are legitimately handing over your hard work, so that they can get money, and no royalties will come to you. They can do whatever they want with your work.

Furthermore, please also note that MTV, and MTVteenwolf do NOT respect slash in any nature whatsoever. Now, they may pretend that they care about all fans, however, that is a LIE. I honestly don’t want to see innocent fans fall into their lies and promises that all fans are accepted. 
Slash is huge, but they do NOT respect it. So, do not waste your time trying to put your slash work on their site. They do not appreciate it, nor do they appreciate you. 
First off, Teen Wolf queerbaits. This is the first thing that should tell you immediately that Teen Wolf does not respect slash. They use fans, mostly the fans of slash pairings, to earn themselves recognition and money, and then treat us like nothing. 
Second, I suspect most of you have already heard about Sterek material being banned from conventions. Now, while they may want you to believe that they have nothing to do with bans, and that those bans are put into place by the conventions and the actors agents, MTV and the Teen Wolf PR team are most definitely responsible for these bans. 
They have no problem banning things in relation to a popular homosexual pairing, yet they openly allow heterosexual parings to be talked about at cons, as well as they allowed fanart and fanwork of other heterosexual pairings to be signed.
Teen Wolf does NOT respect all fans. 
The Collective will be a place where fanwork of heterosexual nature will be posted without a big deal, but you will most likely find that slashwork will not be acceptable in most forms. They may, at first, allow some slash work to be posted. However, things will change. Please, do not allow yourself to be tricked and used. 
The Collective, is just a way for them to get attention. Teen Wolf is successful because of social media. It’s a huge social show, and the fans built that. However, their social media ratings are indeed falling, which I suspect is the reason this site has been created. Not because they care about fans.
They want more attention, more viewership, better ratings. This is an attempt to do so, and they are going to use fans to get better ratings. This is all a ploy to take your work, use it, and get earn themselves a pay off.
As stated in their introduction piece, they say: ”We encourage any and all “Teen Wolf” fans to sign up for The Collective and share your thoughts, opinions, and talents with us.”
However, they’ve made it quite clear that they do not care for our thoughts and opinions when they don’t suit them. Constructive criticism is ignored. When we bring up plot holes, and certain storylines that do not make sense, they ignore us and tell us that they run the show.
When we point out gross things like the non-con and abusive scenes between various couples, they ignore us as well, and continue stanning for these couples, claiming how they are cute and romantic.
As I said before, do NOT allow yourself to be fooled. They do not care about fans. They care about money, which is what they earn by keeping Teen Wolf in a high social media infused bracket. 
I encourage ALL fans, to just keep posting their fanwork (of all kinds) here on Tumblr. Share your artwork here. Share your meta here. Share your opinions here. 
Here on Tumblr, things cannot be monitored and sculpted to fit MTVteenwolf’s vision of what’s acceptable.
I also encourage ALL fans to post their fanfic on Archive of Our Own (or other fanfiction oriented sites). Ao3 accepts all work, and most definitely slash work. 
MTV, and MTVteenwolf have used us for as long as Teen Wolf has been on air. It’s time we take a stand. Please do not allow yourself to be used and exploited by using The Collective. This, in itself, is just a way for them to make money while spitting on you and your hard work. 
[Also, please spread the word about The Collective gaining immediate ownership of the work submitted on their site. Dedicated and innocent fans should not have their work stolen.]
Be safe and wise, Teen Wolf fans.

honestly curious, why does it offend you?

perfectlyerik answered:

i see lucy as a racist film that plays on negative stereotypes while hiding behind the cover of (white) feminism. 

all this film has done is switch out the white man for a white woman. it’s still a film about a white person getting violated by the evil poc, then gaining power and wiping them out. 

here’s 2 of my favourite scenes from the trailer:

from top to left to right:

KEEP CLEAN 保持清潔,APPLE 蘋果,ONION 洋蔥,GRAPE 葡萄,CHAIR 椅子,TOMATO 番茄

traditional chinese is an actual written language used by millions of people, not symbols to be thrown around at the whim of set designers because they look cool and idk, serves to create a menacing asian atmosphere. this is so disrespectful, and made even worse by the fact that this film in set it taipei, taiwan where the official written language is traditional chinese.

it doesn’t matter that this film caters to a primarily “white” audience who won’t be able to read it, the language and culture of taiwan isn’t something for you to twist and use as you deem fit because it’s “exotic.”

lucy shoots a guy for not being able to speak english. 

she l i t e r a l l y shoots this taiwanese taxi driver, in taiwan for not being able to speak english. she’s in taipei and she’s shooting people as they are of no use to her because they don’t speak english. 

just think about the sort of message that’s sending out. she’s not being “bad-ass strong female character who takes no shit,” she’s saying that english is useful and better. this is the type of harmful ideology that stretches all the way back from when western countries were colonising and forcing their language and customs on other countries. 

let me explain with a real life example. i was born in new zealand to two taiwanese parents. i am fluent in english, but mandarin is conversational at best. my friends in taiwan say that i am “so lucky” to speak fluent english, when they are fluent in mandarin and their english level is no worse than my mandarin. they tell me that they want to perfect their english but in the same breath tell me that mandarin isn’t worth perfecting because i have english and that’s “enough”. they also tell me how pretty my white friends are when they see pictures.

this is the type of neo imperialism ideology that they’ve grown up buying into. it honestly hurts and frustrates me that they belittle their own culture like this, honestly believing that the western world is superior. this is the type of neo imperialism ideology that this film (hopefully unintentionally) promotes: white people are better and will save the day. 

if they wanted to film a movie about a white women getting back at those who had violated her, why not film it in a western country? if they wanted to film it in taiwan, why not find an asian lead actress?

i do agree that we need more women protagonists in action/superhero movies, but not like this. its not okay that the female lead needs to be kidnapped and have her body cut open without her consent in order to gain her powers, and those said those powers do not make any of this racist bullshit okay. 

i am just so tired and angry of poc always being brushed off to the side as either props or villains in mainstream media. 

as a poc, it’s so frustrating to see that the of the standard of beauty still white women when we live in multi-cultural societies and a diverse world. 

feminism is about equality. a film in which poc are presented as evil and inferior before being killed off by a superior white woman does not promote equality.

I stopped watching the trailer after 5 seconds cos of this bad Chinese triad guy bullshit.
