this above person did not at all understand the point of everything or anything, but a reminder that you should watch this video and the one before it anyway
Holy crap! I wanted to personally disagree with a video but still have a calm discussion without resorting to name-calling or insulting a stranger’s intelligence when I wouldn’t have the obligation of knowing that myself. Surely that’s entirely unheard of on tumblr and the internet in general. The societal boundaries are breaking as we speak, when someone you don’t know reblogs something and has an opinion. But thank you for referring to me as a person instead of a thing.
whaaat are you even saying.
You can disagree with a video, and nothing I said was super “un calm”
but rly like you’re coming to a video about racism and saying she should apologize to the writer? She (Rachel) already publicly explained the issue with the last name thing, and had a zillion other points against the books that explain how they marginalize women of color.
I mean to reduce her argument to acting like she said “women of color must always be portrayed in positive ways” was insulting to her intelligence and pretty much ignoring the specifics of everything she said. Just saying.
And that is exactly what you did when you make commentary about how equality in countries won’t happen just by positive representation, as if she ever posited that that was the solution? Her entire set of videos were about how the characters were marginalized and treated as plot tools. Not that they aren’t “nice” enough- that they are never as full agents as other characters were allowed to be. That isn’t accidental, and that isn’t good writing of WoC characters. Along with other problems that she mentioned.
Like are you actually that surprised someone called you out on it just because you didn’t use swear words or something?? Please.
