@ that last post i reblogged
i see that a lot with my mom too, like whenever i show her something i’m interested in all she has to say is “that’s cute” or something along those lines.
we finished watching kubo and the two strings earlier this year (i cried at the ending again btw) and all she said was “that was cute”
another thing is, my aunt automatically assumed graphic novels are things marketed to kids. she said that i could get a career publishing graphic novels bc her elementary school kids are interested in them.
it’s like it doesn’t occur to older people that these things actually have meaning too. they can’t look past their own initial beliefs that these things are for kids to understand the complexity behind them and the amount of thought and effort that goes into them, and the content of them that’s actually?? pretty fucking deep?
it’s just frustrating that they group all these very complex and honestly well-done works as childish and “cute”
