The newest episode of SU addressing gatekeeping and appropriation of a cause as an ally at the expense of those directly affected by the cause is brilliant. Seeing Steven tricked into questioning his own validity and identity because of parasitic “allies” that try to dictate the rules of a community they’re only apart of to exploit (especially in the form of tone policing of all things) is beautiful.
I know a lot of folk feel hurt that the false advertisement raised their hopes for something less episodic and more lore-based, but nobody is talking about this in the tags and its actually really delightful. It might not be what people were expecting, but there’s a lot to this plucky little episode. I like.
