And he had thanks for one person in particular.

Hi, I like this blog, but this is the first time that I will make a question, Have there been controversies based on the topic of TF? I would like to know.

As in, real-life, in-the-news, making-headlines controversies? There’ve been some, but generally not ones that have become primary franchise talking points or series-hobbling black marks.

The first major example of such a thing that comes to mind is the reaction to Skids and Mudflap in Revenge of the Fallen, who were derided as racist caricatures. It didn’t become known until after the film was finished and released, though, so nothing really happened regarding it beside a lot of disparaging commentary, but it probably factored strongly into not bringing the pair back for Dark of the Moon.

Power Core Combiners Off-Road is another one - he was originally going to be named “Spastic,” which doesn’t mean much to Americans, but in the United Kingdom, is an extraordinarily offensive word used to refer to disabled people. This grabbed some column inches in the UK, even making the country’s equivalent of the “late night monologues”:

and his name was, quite rightly, changed with all due haste. Cause, y’know, yikes.

But controversies of the Midwestern-pearl-clutching, wont-somebody-think-of-the-children, Beauty-and-the-Beast-has-a-gay-character-in-it variety? Outside of some warranted commentary about the suitability of the live-action films for kids, that’s not been a thing. Personally, I’m just waiting for One Million Moms to hear about More than Meets the Eye

Late night conversations

Sometimes I miss those late night conversations - the ones where it’s like no one else exists, and you’re laughing and sometimes you’re so tired you don’t even know what you’re saying, but it’s great anyway because it’s that person, whether it’s a friend or more than a friend, it’s that person that makes you smile no matter what, who knows you inside and out, who is the definition of comfort. And then one night you call, hoping it might be like it used to be. But it’s not. It’s strained and you’re stumbling over your words wondering where the easiness went. When did this become so difficult? When did it all change? And the worst part is that you don’t know. There’s no turning point, no monumental event. It just…happened. It happened without you even noticing it was happening until one day you’re aware of it, and you realize that it’s been there for a while. And you keep trying to tell yourself it’s okay, that you’ve been without it this long, just because you’re aware of it now…that shouldn’t make that much of a difference, right? But no matter how much you deny it, you still feel the punch in the gut. You still feel like you’ve lost a part of yourself that you’ll never get back. Because truth is? You did.
