i hate Social Justice, now i dont know if, when an artist wants to do some gender swapping, it is because he/she wants to experiment with something different or is because of pandering
i guess ill wait and see
you know what is the group of people that i think is the most racist of all?, excluding shit like white supremacists and stuff, the so called social justice warriors, the people who defend social justice to the extreme, people who feel they have the right to tell women and people of color how they should feel, these people ignore minorities are people too, they only see skin colors, genders or sexual orientations, they dont see people
to be clear, im not talking about you, unless you are one of those people
The negative things you mentioned - "defending social justice to the extreme" - supposedly "telling people of color and women how they should feel"... They aren't defending social justice. The sort of people you're talking about are the furthest thing from someone standing for social justice. Films are art, and the artist can do whatever the fuck they want. If it's racist then we can call it out. If it's pandering, who cares? It could still be good. People who focus on whether or not it is pandering are concentrating on a non-issue.
Pandering to audiences so as to not offend people has nothing to do with social justice. Jesus tapdancing Christ. You really have no grasp of what social justice is. Do you know what a real social justice warrior is? One of the many people who fought and died for it. You know... So slavery could be abolished, women could vote, so you could live in a free society... I'd say people like you make me sick, but the fact is that you are just being a fool.
This SJW thing has gotten out of hand. I can't just go on a bloody forum anymore and discuss things I like without it popping up!
i film can be racist and still be good, you can call it out all you want, and thats ok, just keep in mind that sort of thing dont affect the quality of the work
also, did the original cast of ghostbusters actually offend people simply by being male? wow
and no, thats not a social justice warrior, a social justice warrior is a "slacktivist" someone who believes they are so brave and mighty by complaining about stuff over the internet, rather than actually going out and trying to change things
a social justice warrior is often someone who wants to feel better about himself, often completely losing sight of what their principles are about, why do you think the #notyourshield tag exist? because people like me, people who are not the "unholy trinity" of white, male and straight, are sick and tired of having other people tell you how you should feel, why you should feel offended by X and Y, etc
also i cant find the words "social justice warrior" anywhere in the wikipedia article of Martin Luther King, Jr.
you should ask people if they are actually offended by THING before trying to complain about THING
