What are your feelings towards The Amazing World Of Gumball now after that SJW callout episode?
i still love it, the episode was fuckin dead on and good lmao. its not “anti-sjw” their whole fuckin point of the episode was that being a good person is good, but using sj topics as cannon fodder to tear down ur opponents in an argument by making them sound like terrible people is a shit thing to do that genuinely does harm the actual causes.
i know directly calling it by name turns a lot of ppl off because they assume the show targeting sjws on tumblr = being anti-sjw (in the ‘racism isnt real!’ and ‘feminism is cancer!’ sense), but like … watch the full episode and tell me theyre not right, tell me u havent seen people acting like that before. its an issue especially with younger kids on tumblr between like 13-15, they dont know why theyre using certain arguments they just recite what they hear other people say and they weaponize it. its like, a genuine lack of actual thought & it does diminish the fights against discrimination by not taking it seriously.
that cactus character may have been snobby and annoying, but she wasnt a bad person, so it was wrong of gumball to try to frame her as one just to tear her down for being a bit stuck up. and the scene where he went “looking for receipts” by finding out she used to be a bad person and then wanting to show the whole school (fuckin … literally call outs do i even need to clarify) was wrong of him because clearly she wasnt like that anymore and she wasnt trying to hide it, just trying to move on. it was a good episode i didnt get any bad vibes from it
