i’m waiting for someone to write epic meta on why the reason bucky is so popular with female fans is bc his storyline being about being stripped of agency and personal autonomy resonates particularly with female experiences

Why the Stan's Secret Twin Theory Doesn't Make Any Sense

Eyyyy I know everybody in the Gravity Falls fandom loves the Stan’s secret twin theory, but I’m here to explain why it doesn’t make any sense. Seriously hear me out on this…

The Stan’s secret twin theory seems to revolve around the idea that having twins is a trait that is passed down…

I totally respect your point on the fact that the ‘twin gene’ is genetically passed on down through the mother, but the myth/urban legend out there still stands: twins seem to skip a generation. It doesn’t necessarily happen in real life, but that whole point (when brought up in the twin theory) simply serves to be a little side note to tons of more ‘evidence’ for the twin theory.

 Honestly, the only reason why that part was added was because it seemed possible that, Alex Hirsch being a twin himself, heard the myth growing up and may have considered it if/when he created the idea of Stanley (and remember, it’s a big ‘if’ at this point, as there still isn’t enough ‘evidence’ to prove the hypothetical twin exists).

 There is so much more to the theory than the ‘twin generation skip aspect’. So, to say it “doesn’t make any sense” and to claim it’s been debunked just because this one small aspect of it isn’t a likely reason for Stan to have a twin…

 Well, it’s a little extreme. There are plenty of other things supporting the theory that I won’t go into here (that would take paragraphs), and I’m sure other people have linked to the original post, but just in case:

And here is the less bulky, updated version: http://prettyinpwn.tumblr.com/post/90206528245/indulging-in-the-stan-twin-theory-version-two

 tl;dr: I respect your point, but debunking a point that the Stan twin theory doesn’t even really rely on doesn’t debunk the entire theory itself.

I’d just like to add that I am an identical twin, and my father is a fraternal twin, and his aunts are twins (i’m not sure if they’re identical or fraternal) so, in my case, the “twins running in the family thing” IS on my dads side of the family

this isn’t supporting or debunking the theory, and since gravity falls is a work of fiction genetics literally don’t matter since they can make it whatever they want, but…. yeah. i guess this is just throwing in something solid? since i’ve also grown up hearing how twins are usually on the moms side and how they can skip generations, but i’ve never actually seen that (disclaimer: i might have. i’ve known a lot of twins but i’ve never delved deeply into their families history of twins cause uh. y’know. they were just my friends)

Ha thanks for contributing to the conversation ^^ your input is much appreciated.

but fraternal twins and identical twins are two entirely different genetic phenomenons, and just because both occur within one family doesn’t mean they have anything to do with each other. Identical twins CAN be the fault of the father because instead of the mother releasing two eggs during ovulation, she only need release one. AFTER fertilization, the one egg then splits into two :)

yes, identical and fraternal twins are genetically different, but a) the theory is that stan’s twin is a brother meaning that they could be identical or fraternal while dipper and mabel are fraternal so by that reasoning them beings twins has no bearing on whether stan is a twin or not. b) genetics don’t matter because as a work of fiction they’re going to do whatever they think is the most compelling plot-wise and c) “twins running in the family” has always seemed more like a superstition/general observation to me than a scientific theory or fact and no one who has ever mentioned it or talked about it in my vicinity (which has happened frequently throughout my life since i am a twin and people tend to talk a lot about twins to you when you are a twin) has never taken the kind of twins into account when talking about it actually also d) i’m fairly certain identical twins is not even hereditary because whether or not the egg splits into two has nothing to do with a gene telling the body to purposefully do that? though i’ll grant that hyper-ovulation is hereditary and can play a factor in the likelihood of fraternal twins
