  3. kind of like how i prefer calling myself non-religious as opposed to agnostic because agnostic still suggests some sort of internal conflict whereas i simply have no want nor need for religion

  4. @zeldatra there's always agender i guess, i know people who use that term with that kind of sentiment. i feel pretty similarly wrt myself but at the same time changing anything about my identity would just insinuate that i care about it more than i do

  8. @mrmattimation people have tried to cancel him like every single year but nobody cancels Dan Harmon better than Dan Harmon himself imo

  9. that being said, of course people have room to improve themselves. like if you did a dumb thing pre-2014 that was ignorant in a non-malevolent way then I don't really care, but that seems to be the demo that a lot of cancel culturinos cling to because they see morality as some prescriptive immutable thing as if the world hasn't been in a constant state of unlearning certain dynamics and biases

  10. @scribus oh yeah that too, I was thinking about the industry at large but also individual people saying "I didn't know this racist thing I actively engaged in was racist" is something I don't often buy

  11. @scribus the sentiment is nice and all but working from the societal equivalent of an F to a C- and calling it a day is not the big move they must think it is

  13. what's funny to me is, I feel like the first time I learned about blackface when I was around 5, I was immediately able to discern that it's not something that is okay to do. not that I didn't go through the process of learning/unlearning a lot of racist stuff in my lifetime, but that one just always seemed like kind of a no brainer to me. that being said I am surprised (though probably shouldn't be) at just how common it actually is, and how many people I've known who apparently always thought it was fine

  14. was about to joke about how like 50% of Always Sunny will get thanos'd but i googled it and how are netflix only removing a single episode lmaoo

  15. @mrmattimation I dunno how far exactly I'd go to defend these sorts of jokes but pretty much every example I can think of is pretty obviously a subversive criticism *of* blackface. Obviously I am not the person who can/should decide if that makes it more okay, but I feel like removing these scenes is stifling discussions of anti-racism if anything. Like just put the disclaimer in front like WB and Disney or whatever

  16. I know that they're pulling an episode of Community for implied blackface, and without even reading into it I know the exact scene they're talking about and I sincerely do not believe that a single person with any stake in societal progression watched that scene and thought it was actually a problem

  17. @mrmattimation I would prefer it for future reference if POC actors got to voice POC characters, especially in the current industry where they aren't getting the same treatment or opportunities as white people; but I absolutely agree that this current wave of networks removing TV episodes with instances of racism and actors conveniently regretting voicing POC roles all of a sudden is largely posturing in the absence of actual willingness to, you know, hire and support and pay POC. I also don't think it's a particularly far reach to suggest that companies are just pretending this is what activists are asking for as some sort of psyop, since it will most likely push the needle back in their favour (i.e. still not hiring, supporting and paying POC)

  21. @adiwan I got like 4 episodes into season 6 and gave up lmao, it is not the same show at all by that point

    about 10 months ago from web in context
  22. @adiwan Community season 2 is one of my fave seasons of anything ever so I'd definitely take it that far at least. The rest ranges from okay to pretty good for me if you pretend the show ended with season 5

  27. @mrmattimation this is good praxis, thank you

  28. @scribus I am wholly sympathetic towards people with those sorts of predispositions but at the same time we are at (arguably past) the point where people act like the Internet should be catered towards them and their sensibilities specifically and it's to the detriment of years of societal progress

  29. also I don't wanna hear any "haha this guy is surprised to see the left eating itself" bullFluffle Puff because I want it on record that I would throw any number of neo-woke glamour progressives in front of an oncoming freight train
