Shameless writers: LET MICKEY COME OUT IN A BAR!!!
Gallavich fandom: We would love a gallavich kiss right now but we feel like Mickey would be pushed so we just want a step-by-step relationship development.
Shameless writers: LET MICKEY KISS IAN IN PUBLIC AND SPEND EVERY NIGHT WITH IAN AT A GAY CLUB , BETTER!! LET MICKEY SCREAM DETAILS ABOUT HIS SEX LIFE WITH IAN TO HIS HOMOPHOBIC FATHER IN PUBLIC.
Gallavich fandom: Whoa! Mickey is having a scene in the Gallager's house, maybe he'll ask Ian to stay and make up with him and they would have a rational story line this season.

'How is a pamphlet worse than a riot?'
‘Because words are forever. Even if you kill the person who writes them, words are forever. Even if you disagree with them and spend the rest of your days arguing against what was said, what was said was still said. A riot only lasts as long as it takes for a fire to burn itself out.
