If you saw the earlier post I made re: plebcomics, I apologize. I realized way too late that it was an awful post and really gross and I wish I hadn’t posted it

honestly, i dont know why i made this. 
i mean i do but

I empathize with your frustration over worn-out tropes. I really do. I also haven’t enjoyed the proliferation of Adventure Time clones. I think they’re boring (reason: they are boring).
I see where you might say, why is this any more original than what it purportedly stands against? You might question the motives of people designing these characters. Are these people really creating characters, or are these creations merely symbols of an immature political ideology? I get that. These characters aren’t somehow above criticism, either as tools for good storytelling, or vehicles of social responsibility.
That said, I can’t see why, out of all the things one could “call out” to shit on, this was it. Consider these possibilities, alone or combined:
Some white person made this character in order to actively deflect accusations of excluding others, and to gain credibility with their peers.
Some white person made this character because they like Pen Ward stuff, and felt this character was a good fit for their cast.
A white person made this character because they felt that it is important to convey that white is not synonymous with default.
A person who is not white made this character because they felt that it is important to convey that white is not synonymous with default.
 A person who is not white made this character because they like Pen Ward stuff, and felt this character was a good fit for their cast.
A person who is not white made this character because they feel like popular media pretends people like them, don’t exist.
A person who is not white made this character to piss off white people.
And then, just push it all right out your ear, because collectively, it doesn’t matter. It can be frustrating to see people doing the same thing over and over again, and patting themselves (and each other) on the back for it, but that’s if you look at it from way, way too close up. Zoom out a lot. This is a big picture thing.
No matter what the shallow, self-absorbed, social-climbing, industrious, brave, determined, callous, cynical, idealistic, immature, or visionary reasons the individual may have for creating a character that pointedly deviates from “white male as default”, the collective result is that people are progressively made aware that white males are not the default. The idea may not seem new to you, given that you have your microscope trained on a part of the internet that is rather specifically invested in this sort of thing. Myopia makes this seem more all-encompassing than it really is - out there in the rest of the Western world, media representation is still overwhelmingly white, and tailored to the sensibilities of men. Pull back a little bit, let the assumptions about people’s personal motivations slide (I have a hard time with this too, but let’s face it: a lot of good things have happened both despite and because of people with selfish motives), and it’s easier to see that ultimately, the “punk chunky brown girl” is a good thing.

The fact that this even needs to be posted is fucking ridiculous

and why is “from” in quotations…

because racist white dudes have a tendency to ask woc where they’re “from” and they actually mean “what is your racial heritage to the nearest percent”

thank you!

Who do I contact to get these plastered over trimet

countdown to “NOT ALL MEN” despite the sign never actually even implicating men as the ones who do this, revealing that they know damn well that this is 99% done by men…

"Nazis are less toxic than SJWs" plebcomic, aka Abbysucks has a popular post going around about "Tumblr guide to animation", which is just another veiled attack on inclusion. Can we just fucking exorcize this asshole already?

jethroq:

My favorite Plebcomics strip is the “people Tumblr thinks don’t exist”, in which they argued that 1. because there’s people who are OK with people not in their group using slurs targetting them, and there are people who don’t think cultural appropriation is a big deal, it’s “just words” and “these things are open for everyone” 2. there are some trans people who dislike “special pronouns” and people without diagnosed dysphoria identifying as trans, there “needs to be boundaries” and “lannguage shouldn’t be misused”.

plebcomics:i can't believe fat woc exist and people draw them LMAO PANDERING MUCH????
