question , do you like river dale or not? and if you dont what are your main problems with it ? im a little confused by your page .
do i hate it? no. do i like it? no. am i trapped in this hell hole bc i’m cursed to try to see it through to the end, just in case it gets better? yes.
so let’s see what problems do i have with it there’s a lot here and i might be forgetting some so strap into ur seats kiddos
- erasure of jughead’s asexuality
- he’s aroace in the comics, and very clearly romance/touch repulsed
- even if you favor gay jughead over aroace jughead, that’s still erasing his sexuality by having him be with betty!!!
- depicting a sexual relationship between a minor and an adult
- even if you yell “well, kj isn’t a minor!!” it doesn’t matter!! the character he plays, archie, is in fact a minor!!!
- depicting sexual relationships between minors
- “but every 16 year old has sex!” you shout, physically manifesting spiders into my home. you need to remember though that this is media consumed by adults, adults watching literal children in sexual situations?? if that doesn’t make u take a step back a bit, i think u need to rethink ur life, bud. also, no, not every 16 year old doesn’t have sex where the fuck r u. how many times am i goinng to have to hear that excuse from the Straighties regarding this. also why are u so invested in watching 16 year olds have sex in the first place why are u so defensive about it
- ya u can make veronica and betty kiss!!!!!!! but they aren’t gay and never will be!!!! nope!!!!!
- we can have fuck ass incest on this show but a gay romance between 2 leads? unheard of
- Generally Problematique Things
- jughead making suicide jokes
- kevin’s biphobia towards moose, telling him he should stick with girls
- using trauma as a plot point with no lasting effects
- honestly if you can’t see how problematic this show is on ur own then………….. idk what to tell u
