This is random, but what do you think of people who use modern day ideas and opinions to judge people in the past (for example, judging people who would not let their daughters get an education in times that wasn't considered normal)
i feel like this is too broad for me to honestly answer.
and there’s actually a technical term for it:
presentism: ‘uncritical adherence to present-day attitudes, especially the tendency to interpret past events in terms of modern values and concepts.’
but like…i don’t have an issue with using ‘modern day idea and opinions’ to condemn historic people that participated in like…the slave trade? for example.
i think it’s important to look at history through a critical lens. i also think it’s important to take the time to understand the standards and values of the era in which historic figures lived. i don’t actually think the two are mutually exclusive.

Remember how convinced I was that the Soul King was in love with Ichigo? I mean, I use the past tense, but I still kinda think that way. Ever since Sentoki said, “I can see why the Soul King is in love with you,” I was there. So anyway, let’s say the Soul King is a character and not just a sad torso! He and Aizen are going to fight over Ichigo - how will that go?
Soul King: Gee…I wonder who Ichigo would go for more?
Soul King: A criminal who tried to kill him and all of his friends and who is in prison?
Soul King: Or the KING?
Aizen: Interesting perspective.
Aizen: I would have phrased it slightly differently.
Aizen: Whom would Kurosaki Ichigo go for more? A devastatingly handsome genius?
Aizen: Or a man who lives in a crystal and whose own limbs took on sentience and left him?
Aizen: Let’s be real. If your own arm and heart want to kill you, that may say something.
Soul King: One of my arms tried to defend me!
Aizen: Wow. Then you must be a great guy then.
Soul King: I am a great guy! I live in a crystal and I hold the universe together!
Soul King: That is the sort of selfless attitude that Ichigo appreciates!
Aizen: Selfless? Please. What have you done to help anyone?
Aizen: When the Quincy came, you were helpless. When I attacked Soul Society, you did nothing. You are nothing but a figurehead, hardly a person at all.
Aizen: I fail to see why anyone would serve you, let alone date you.
Soul King: Um, right back at you.
Soul King: I trust my subordinates and stay in my crystal. I can see why someone might be grumpy about that.
Soul King: But at least I don’t ACTIVELY seek to destroy the universe!
Aizen: Well, aside from you arm. And your heart.
Soul King: T-that doesn’t count as me!
Soul King: Not to mention that you’re terrible to your subordinates.
Soul King: And are just - evil!
Soul King: Ichigo wouldn’t go for evil!
Aizen: Kuorsaki Ichigo’s soul is a hollow fused with his shinigami powers. He has murderous, evil rage living in his heart.
Aizen: Just saying.
Soul King: And even his murderous , evil rage soul has been used for nothing but protecting people and making the universe better.
Soul King: He’s such an awesome dude.
Soul King: Not the sort to be into bondage chairs, I’ll bet.
Aizen: Everyone thinks they won’t like bondage chairs until they try them.
Soul King: Uh huh. All I know is that Ichigo gave his all to stop you.
Aizen: At least he didn’t KILL me.
Soul King: H-he tried!
Aizen: But failed.
Aizen: Perhaps he didn’t really want to kill me.
Aizen: Whereas when he first met you, he IMMEDIATELY cut you in two and killed you.
Soul King: He only did that because of Yhwach!!
Aizen: Really? I seem to recall Yhwach saying something about how the Quincy part of Kurosaki Ichigo’s soul hates you.
Aizen: Are you crying?
Soul King: N-NO!
Soul King: ICHIGO CLEARLY FELT REALLY BAD ABOUT KILLING ME
Soul King: SO I FORGIVE HIM
Soul King: SURE IT WAS OUR FIRST MEETING AND MAYBE I WAS A LITTLE EXCITED TO SEE HIM IN PERSON FOR THE FIRST TIME AND MAYBE I HAD A FEW ROSES AND A FEW SWEET THINGS TO SAY AND THEN HE JUST CUT ME IN HALF IMMEDIATELY AND MAYBE THAT HURT A LITTLE
