I know people are disappointed with PK’s statement but honestly I’m not surprised? I’m more surprised by people’s response because like, a) he’s never been super political in the first place, and b) have you seen the shit this man goes through just for being himself? Sports media started a whole campaign against him last season just for getting too excited during his cellies. Not to mention everything surrounding and leading up to his trade to Nashville, from the Habs higher ups especially.
Like, you read his statement and it all sounds like he’s trying to assure the Preds higher ups that even though he has a loud personality and is energetic he won’t start a ruckus and go against the team’s decision (which the PR had announced earlier that day) to not protest. He even went so far as to explain why he couldn’t keep still during the anthem (citing both adrenaline and possibly undiagnosed ADD) even though that’s a super common thing in the league. This man is already anticipating all the shit that the media is gonna throw at him if people do start protesting. Honestly, after Montreal I just wouldn’t be surprised if he doesn’t feel completely secure in his position on the team.
Idk, I just want y'all to remember that he already gets so much shit for being a dark skinned black man with a lot of personality and being really fucking good at what he does. You’re allowed to be disappointed (I kind of wish he at least spoke more in favor of the protests as a whole even if he wasn’t gonna do it even tho I get why he might not of) but let’s not act like he was suddenly obligated to lead some sort of revolution against Sidney Crosby or whatever this weird vibe is i’ve been getting these last few days.
team 7 hangs out: sasuke spills his wine on narutos shirt so naruto borrows sai’s, sai falls asleep, sakura bitches about sasuke to sasuke, and sasuke cant focus cause hes been looking at the sun seal on narutos belly all evening, and hes pretty sure he put his hand near his ass on purpose but is not positive
I watched it finally, after months of pining. I have so much respect for Laika because puppetry is witchcraft and my mind still can’t fathom that what she’s seeing isn’t computer animated. Also, the creepy moon warrior aunts are serious life goals.
That being said, I understand why this movie didn’t win best animated film. Laika had a great idea. A beautiful idea. An original idea. Shamisen-wielding paper master takes on the moon kingdom? Like, yo, I am freaking here for this.
PK starts off by saying the reason people are calling them out is because of Pengo, but it’s not, PK knows this. We’re calling PK out because of the multiple recorded incidents of them being awful, and…..yet PK says we’re doing it because of Pengo? Don’t you think that’s just, idk, really suspicious? Like they’re trying to mislead people who haven’t seen the posts floating around that it’s no big deal, it was just one incident that was recanted..?
Moving onto the next paragraph..
PK is right kind of here, but their words aren’t reflective of this particular situation. Call outs can and are horrible when it’s misinformation being spread, but, how is what we’re spreading misinformation? All we really have are screen caps and archives. While screen caps can be edited, nothing has been shown them to be edited. And Archives cannot be faked period. It’s a false comparison simply because we’re not spreading misinformation, we’re not being nitpicky because of something stupid we’re spreading screen caps and archives showing people things that PK has actually fucking said. PK called people with autism emotionless robots. Eevee said they where uncomfortable with child porn being illegal. PK and Eevee both harassed Matt Brunette. PK has admitted to wanting 13 year olds reading forbidenflora and has also admitted to a fetish about teaching kids sex. These things have come right out of the horses mouth. And posting proof that these things where said is not misinformation.
Now, I can’t speak for everyone against Glip, but.
I hate the fact that I hate them now.
I looked up to Glip for so long, they where my art idol growing up. A person to become. I purchased their art books and supported them financially. I participated in PMD-E, I was even in the IRC for a bit and contributed to the wiki with art. But now? I just feel dirty. I was one of the few children who didn’t look at porn, but I saw a ton of PK’s porn- mostly because it was hard to avoid as a fan of theirs, and now that I know they get off to that shit I feel violated. I hate the fact someone I idolized turned out to be this way.
I don’t do this because I hate pk, I do this because I believe people have a right to know where their money is going too.
That being said.
PK has not once apologized for ANYTHING they have said or done.
Pk is still doing the shit they where doing years ago.
They have not stopped being so horrible to people in general, nor stopped with their casual pedophilia, nor recanted their homophobic and ableist comments and they don’t ever try to improve their lgbt+ representation. PK is openly sexist even now. PK doesn’t even attempt to apologize, not even here!
So, quite frankly. Pk can take their “my call outs are irrelevant because I’m trying to improve” and shove it up their god damn ass.
If PK actually improves, apologizes and the like- well. I can’t speak for everyone who takes issue with them but I know I personally would back down. I was never as bad as PK but I know people can go from awful to somewhat ok from personal experience. But as far as I’m concerned PK is an active threat to children, artists and lgbt people in general. They’re a horribly toxic person and should be labeled as such.
PK’s little twitter rant is intentionally manipulative. It reduces our entire issue with PK down to one incident, and then falsely equates PK situation with a situation in which lies are being spread out of hostility, instead of screen caps and archives being spread. This rant was likely only done to save face because there’s a correlation between how many people know the true nature of PK and how much money people give PK. It’s shitty, and it’s really meaningless in regards to changing my opinion on them for the better.
