I think the misogyny and racism have finally managed to make me turn away from the show.

Or maybe I'm just not well. But right now the show's on, and I'm feeling physically ill.

And this is me not arguing against the serious problematic nature of that, in any way, shape, form or fashion. Other things as well.

(See also 3.01; see also "Women's Work.")

I think that two things are happening here, and I think Kripke et al. need to do some serious rethinking on their approach. I think that on some things they are deliberately choosing images that will make people go "AUGH" at a gut-level reaction of "this is WRONG, this is BAD," because it's part of the downward spiral that they're trying to illustrate.

Unfortunately, it's not working the way they intend, because the larger and more comprehensive context remains extant. *sigh*

I have continued hope, because Kripke has acknowledged that there are issues. And is in touch enough/wants to be in touch enough to listen if/when it's brought to his attention. So.
