In seeing the massive disney debate…
and knowing everything I do about video games, fantasy, and science fiction.
I shudder to think that for most white people, the idealized imaginary worlds they create are places where PoC don’t exist. Usually, neither do queers. Or trans people. Or marginalized people.
These are the worlds of their imaginations. These are the places they go to for entertainment and fun. This is how they escape from reality. Are they disappointed that their various genocides haven’t (yet) been 100% effective? Is this the reality that they need respite from?
When you put it in those terms, that’s fucking scary.
…i’ve been saying how much i hate Disneyfor these various reasons for years but i’ve never seen it put quite this way… kind of makes me sick.
