gremlin mtn dew and dorito jokes about dva have gotten really unfunny really fast. for one, like. esports in korea are a much bigger deal? like. i’ve lived in korea, and there are tv channels, or at least shows, dedicated to playing starcraft, and i recall on more than one occasion sitting in a hair salon or doctors office and those types of channels would be on like no big deal
and like. doritos and mtn dew are such an american trope? its subtly whitewashing her without actually changing her features and skintone, but rather culturally, and on top of that it infantilizes her. east asian women get infantilized so fucking much that its a really big fucking problem and quite frankly racist? like i havent seen an asian woman character that wasn’t either an Exotic™ Perfect Wife, an Unfeeling Aloof Dragon Lady trope, or infantilized and portrayed as unable to care for herself.
and using child/gremliln dva is springboard to make the White Faves her caretakers dont think i dont see that either lmao
like the jokes were funny at first, but its a huge fucking problem and really old and irritating now???
and theres so much to hana song thats really interesting that gets overlooked by the fans. she’s 19, and she’s been drafted into the miitary because they’re so desperate they turned to gamers. she fights for her contry and her life against a massive fucking kaiju level omnic that learns the more and more you fight it and she still continues to win. and she livestreams her battles, which, yes, the initial thought is hilarious as hell, but she also very well could be broadcasting her own death live to the public. and. its hard being in the public eye all the time (especially in constant situations of pressure), but she puts herself out there and still remains a beloved public figure. that takes charisma and strength and god knows what else and she’s only nineteen.
but. yeah. by all means. all there is to her is doritos and mountain dew and overused gamer jokes, right?
