lol ik… like first he apologizes, and it’s a total half assed apology too, and then the hate finally gets to him and he makes another one, this time using “big boy” words. he made two freaking /twitter/ posts thinking that would change everyone’s mind. idk who’s teaching him any of this. i feel ashamed that he’s my own age, and he represents so many young people like us. no one understands that opinions are capable of being oppressive. he just needs to grow up, maybe get off the internet forever. his friends and him just don’t get when something is too much, you know? it’s all a joke to them, cause fuck, they’re making money!!11!
like tbh i feel like my problem with the “dark and gritty!!” trend in modern stories is this
there’s this idea in our culture that cynicism is realistic? that only children believe in happy endings, that people are ultimately selfish and greedy and seeing with clear eyes means seeing the world as an awful place
that idealism is— easy, i guess. butterflies and sunshine and love are easy things to have in your head.
but i’ve known since i was fifteen that idealism— faith in humanity— optimism— is the most difficult thing in the entire world.
i constantly struggle to have faith in humanity, because it’s really, really easy to lose it. it’s easy to look at the news and go “what were you expecting? of course humans behave this way.” it’s easy to see the world and go “ugh, there’s no hope there.” and the years when i believed that were easy. miserable— but easy.
it is hard work to see the good in people. it is hard work to hope. it is hard work to keep faith and love and joy and appreciation for beauty in my daily life.
and when moviemakers and tv producers and writers go “omg!!! all characters are selfish and act poorly and don’t love each other, nothing ever happens that is happy or good, that’s so much more realistic, that’s so much more adult”
no, it’s not
it’s the most childish thing i can imagine.
sexist/homophobe/racist: “everybody has the right to their own opinion :) it’s a free country i can say whatever i want :)”
