yeah so. tonight the flash had a disabled man say “i want to die” on my screen. a disabled man, a wheelchair user, who is, as we have had before, our villain this season.
as if we haven’t had a villainous (faking) wheelchair user with eowells.
as if we haven’t had a horribly handled wheelchair storyline with felicity, with barry. as if nathaniel didn’t have hemophilia until he got superpowers and was magically cured. i’m sure there are more i’m missing.
as if i wasn’t already considering quitting everything on dctv except legends of tomorrow with this horrible, antisemitic dumpster fire of a crossover.
i think i’m gonna take a break from the flash. from our season villain of you-said-you-didn’t-want-another-speedster-so-we-gave-you-a-disabled-villain. from using a native american woman to show how good and pure actually our new sexual harasser ralph is. “oh he’s a good guy, he *cares* about native issues.” bullshit.
i’ll be watching the crossover because i need to know how bad it is so i can stop imagining how bad it will be. i won’t be posting about it, though. and after that? i hope the flash gives me a reason to stay. arrow can choke. so can supergirl.
i need dctv to do better. i hope ak gets booted. i hope marc gets booted. i hope they get shaken up and get women and poc in charge. i hope they change. until then? i only know legends.
