(for the record: it needs to be said that Group B is a lot more likely to cause real world violence and their arguments are 100% stupid and/or cynical, whereas Group A's arguments usually start with a teeny-tiny microbe of a point.)

"sherlock is intentionally queerbaiting me *personally*!" and "an indie game has a trans person in it? whatever happened to free speeeeech?!??!" are basically the same argument.

(not the same exact people, mind you, but the same micro-generation. the tumblr teens and chanboard trolls are now on the Twitter dot com, being just as ridiculous as ever.)

Naw, there's definitely a mid-millennial micro-generation where for like 5 or 6 years nobody (on EITHER side) learned basic reading comprehension, nuance, or ambiguity, and those are the folks who gave us "bad Tumblr takes" *and* "anita sarkeesian wants to ban vidya games o noes"

Rolling musket balls whilst keeping watch for the King's army o'er hill and dale, and studying Latin by lantern-light. (look, it sounds better than "probably at the movies watching Independence Day *again*...")

Jesus, have y'all reached the Very Special Episode where they finally reveal the mystery that's truly been keeping us all awake at night: what's with Jack's tattoo?

"Lucy Maude Montgomery's charming stories captured the hearts of millions around the world, especially young girls who saw a little bit of themselves in that plucky red-head Anne Shirley. Also, Lucy was a total NARC."

- did her specific bigotry noticeably affect the creation of the HP world? no. - should ones knowledge of said bigotry affect one’s relationship with the text? maybe, maybe not. - should it affect one’s fandom? JFC YES IT SHOULD, DUH, WOW, etc. - can i personally enjoy HP now? no

- yes, that does actually matter, shut up. - we can absolutely discuss whether or not she should have known better, tho - “hook nosed goblins” = unintentional. - Being a TERF = very, very intentional. - everyone makes mistakes. - not everyone is a bigot. - JKR is a bigot (cont)

I could write an essay on this, but the TL;DR version is: - congratulations, internet, on noticing that parts of the HP world are problematic. you are the first people ever to point that out. - that was sarcasm - the difference is, most of that stuff was unintentional (cont.)

I'm 25 and still comfort myself by self identifying as stupid and get uncomfortable and anxious when people call me smart. My friends don't understand and think I'm putting myself down when I actually see stupidity as freedom from guilt.

Being smart was accidentally weaponized against me by parents who didn't understand. "I know you're smart so failing this class must mean you're not trying" turned into "only stupid people are allowed to fail" in my head.

being classed as 'gifted' turned failure into a personality defect for me. Weaponised my potential by presenting it as the bar I couldn't reach most of the time. When I got my DX this year I felt so vindicated, but still mourn for the kid who didn't get the help he needed!
