no one ever tells you how exhausting and never ending the process of coming out is. it will never fucking end. i will always have to explain existence to someone. always.
people slipping into company wars mentality with regards to representation and diversity from DC or Marvel comics or Marvel studios or WB and i think i should remind you
- they’re all bad and you need to constantly keep your fucking eye and criticism on them to achieve any kind of change
- seriously they’re all fucking bad
I have never watched a show more fucked up and surreal from beginning to end than Green Wing.
anime trope episodes: the beach episode, the festival episode, the episode where someone doesn’t know how to cook
western cartoon trope episodes: the episode where someone has several copies of themselves made, the episode where inanimate objects come to life, the episode that is a homage to a movie from the 1950s, the episode where someone is shrunk down to microscopic levels and placed inside the body of another person
I wanted to reply your message on private but I saved it as a draft and…yeah… °v°”
freckletoast look I know you’re not from the US, but here’s a thing you need to understand: in the US little black kids, girls especially, have almost zero characters that look like them on TV, and if they do exist they aren’t always positive.
Now I know people don’t wnat to believe that the Crystal Gems are racially coded, but the reality is that they are. This isn’t about stereotypes this is about reality. Garnet is a big-lipped, thick-thighed, dark-skinned character with a literal afro. “But tumblr user nadroleon! Those features aren’t exclusive to black people!” you’re right, they aren’t exclusive, but they are overwhelmingly common. If I were to describe a big-lipped, thick-thighed, dark-skinned person with a literal afro in any other situation, you would automatically assume they were black.
Now look, I know you wanna have your headcanons and that’s cool, and I know Garnet looked different in the pilot, but you know what it’s really important to a lot of kids, and adults, that a main character on a mainstream show has an afro, so you can see why a lot of people may become sensitive when you draw art of that character losing their hair, regardless of their reaction.
Could you imagine how weird it would be if there was japanese alien on the main team of a show, and everyone kept screaming that she was definitely not japanese? Like imagine if she had the hair that many japanese women have, and the face and eyes that many japanese women have, and the body type that many japanese women have, and imagine if she was even voiced by a japanese woman! Even with all this the fandom claims that she is definitely not japanese at all and that you’re crazy if you think so, wouldn’t that be really strange?? Now imagine that there is a very prominent fan in the fandom of this show that draws art of this character and robs them of a trait that is one that japanese women recieve a lot of hate for (maybe it’s eyes or an accent) wouldn’t you find that strange? If that character were one of the only japanese main characters in a mainstream show wouldn’t that bother you a little bit?
I don’t know, maybe I’m just ranting and raving.
