white people’s reactions to that post criticising Lucy makes me so fucking angry. More than that, it makes me trust them a little bit less.
fuck that whole “yes it’s problematic but I’m still excited!” because it is so much bullshit. Yeah, who cares about POC getting slaughtered and the violent linguistic imperialism BECAUSE ~STRONG WHITE FEMALE CHARACTER~. Apparently, POC’s deaths are less rage-inducing and less meaningful to white allies if a white woman is killing them instead of a white man.
To us, it’s still same white violence we see impeached everyday.
A white woman literally shoots a man in the head for not speaking English. Never mind the danger and oppression non-native English speakers face in the West, this took place in his home country. White expats are given so much fucking priority in Taiwan and China, with the way they’re catered to and coddled.
The kind of neo-imperialistic violence that this film is couching as ~female empowerment~ is really, really fucking harmful. White people have privilege in non-Western countries as well (the shit I’ve seen expats and exchange students get away with in China is astounding), to the extent that we aren’t even safe from harm in our own countries; this film not only ignores it, it glorifies it.
don’t you ever fucking forget that, because we can’t.
Part of having privilege means being able to watch and enjoy media that is harmful to marginalised minorities and still be critical of it, but when this dehumanisation is shoved in our faces, white people need to remember that this is so, so personal.
" I can enjoy problematic media and still be critical of it " has always applies to microaggressions. It ends the moment it perpetuates the violent dehumanization towards people who face the same fucking thing in real life.
the glorification of kurt cobain and demonization of courtney love is so discouraging but a reminder that if you’re a man and you’re an abrasive, provocative, drug-addled musician then you’re the voice of a generation but if you’re all of those things and a woman, you’re a junkie succubus

That’s fucked up. That’s real fucked up. That’s some ice spider shit and I do not approve.

i just imagined a tiny little ice-spider on the mirror singing ‘let it go’ as he builds his little icy webby fortress.
