I love that "performative SJ" term! I think you hit the nail on the head, really: it is all of the stuff we used to see with ship wars and character bashing but cloaked in some odd idea that everything we consume has to correlate with how we act and believe in real life, which is crazy. Isn't a key point of fandom being a vicarious escape from RL? sigh I'm so glad I'm not the only internet granny around who finds this weird and tiresome!

How is High Castle going? The love triangle dismantles itself fast in S2, don't worry. I'd love to hear your perspective on the Pacific States plot(s) because I am really clueless about Imperial Japan in terms of customs and history and stuff. The tumblr blog I was thinking of was "joexjuliana" which has lots of gifs and if John Smith is more your historical aesthetic then "madamgrandadmiral" and "frederiksewell" are both great blogs.
