This reminds me of tumblr in some ways

A reckoning is not to be postponed indefinitely.
Unfortunately for lighting designers, fire performances must always be performed in these conditions.
we live in a world where people won’t question the presence of a talking snowman but they will defend to the death the lack of realism inherent in having a poc in the same story as the talking snowman
we live in a world where that same talking snowman gets more attention to detail, visual characterization, and distinct animations than the female characters in the same story as the talking snowman
what a time to be a talking snowman!!!
Having fantasy elements is no excuse for a lack of realism in the rest of the world. You still need to respect the setting and characters, and sometimes that means any person of color is going to feel jammed in as a token.
Granted, given the amount that’s being changed to adapt this story (basically everything, as far as I know), changing the setting to add people of color wouldn’t be a big step. But if they stayed otherwise true to the story, that would be hard. Because, correct me if I’m wrong here, that setting is ancient Scandinavia.
Scandinavia, the whitest of whitebread parts of the world, where slavery stayed local and even the arctic-circle Inuit (people of color found in basically all other very-northern areas) were historically absent. Which is, to this day, casually and for the most part unquestioningly racist, because even through the 20th century almost all non-Scandavians (white or otherwise) in the country were men with guns from either a foreign military base or an occupying army.
I’m actually having a hard time picturing how even a similar but modified setting (Scandinavia Lite) where there was more contact with a local Inuit tribe could include people of color except in the wise-old-shaman/witch/whatever kind of role. And my impression is that that wouldn’t actually help the problem.
So basically, while Disney is shitty, this is not the main shitty they are being. That ‘honor’ goes to breaking a perfectly good story into a misogynistic movie. That, while they’re at it, they aren’t taking the opportunity to add color to the main character palette, is secondary but pretty much couldn’t come up if they weren’t already ruining things.
I am confused. Dogemin? Il Doge does not have a minder!
I keep trying to make this easier for him, and he keeps twisting it into way worse than nothing.
Two week break to let him down easy => Spends two weeks bottling up his emotions and getting his hopes up that it’s not for real
Put off confrontation until after the show we’re both in is done => Constantly berate me not to wait until I give in and bust out all the reasons I have to break it off, three hours before the first call time.
"Don’t try to have this conversation now, it won’t go well for either of us." followed by "Really, it’s a bad idea to try to talk about this now. Please do what you need to and leave." => Does not move, continuously tries to start conversation until I get extra annoyed (in addition to tired) and explode at him. Eventually leaves without getting the food or clothes he needed to retrieve from my (formerly our) apartment.
The fuck should I be doing, dammit? Every single step has been calculated to make this hurt him less, because I never stopped caring. But it all turns to an exploding melodramatic shitstorm in my face.
Yeah pretty much. I’ve mostly kept it to one deck per two-color pair, with most being three-color, but I can’t stop making more.
This is a polite dogge. If you do not ACCEPT TEA, he will be sad.
This is a polite Doge, or at least you shouldn’t tell him otherwise. If you do not ACCEPT TEA, you may be imprisoned in Venice’s dungeons until further notice.
In rare cases, the Doge may be a dogge. In this case, petting the doge may be a good idea, and get you special trading privileges. Still, do not ATTEMPT WALKIES, as this may result in DROWNING. Venice is unkind to walkies.
