queerlitsuperhero:

it is never just a show

it is never just a book

it is never just a movie

it is never just a comic

The way we treat characters in media reflects the ideas we have about real people, and then our media goes on to enforce how we treat those real people.

I am all for enjoying the media I consume (and contrary to how it must look, I do enjoy a lot of media) but I am critical of everything I enjoy. No media exists in a vacuum. No media does not shadow the social system that constructed it.
