when male writers create “strong female characters” that show hints of feminism without ever calling it feminism.
when said strong female characters go ahead and slut shame and spray hate all over other women.
I’m still waiting to hear what happens when these crimes are…
Unfollowing Dan Harmon and going to avoid Harmontown and maybe Community, possibly indefinitely. Getting a little exhausted with his tirades about so-called “millennial outrage culture”, as though his generation didn’t invent it, or as though they left us with any political or economic recourse besides posting shit on the internet.
And after posting shit on the internet leads to record youth voter turnouts, a bunch of homegrown democratic revolutions in the Arab world and a protest that turned income inequality into a major political issue overnight, he STILL talks shit about millennials when they express reasonable frustrations about a toxic aspect of culture, based on the straw man premise that it’s the extent of what we do.
I don’t really understand why Dan is such a huge fan of free expression and impotent but cathartic anger as far as he’s concerned but can’t abide it for a second from a PoC, woman, queer person or anyone trying to stand up for them. I just know I’m tired of hearing him talk about how people are ‘restricting speech’ when they have normal human reactions to the inconsiderate shit he very frequently says.
And then there’s his rant on Alie & Georgia, where he’s asked what he hates MOST in a nation that’s been economically, politically and ecologically ravaged and he responds by shitting all over the generation that includes his fiancee and that made him famous.
Anyway, brown man rant over. I’m going to go listen to some podcasts by people who don’t mind when I get pissed off by things that make me feel less than human. Maybe Hari Kondabolu or W. Kamau Bell are doing something interesting these days. Or maybe I’ll listen to The Indoor Kids. Or maybe I’ll read a damn book.
dan harmon is the biggest man-baby and thinks it’s a good idea to shit all over the people who made his show a success.
well fuck you too, dan.
