Me, going into the SU tag: Wonder what’s going on this time?

SU discourse: Rebecca Sugar is racist! Everyone is racist! Shut down the show! Cancel it because of this one drawing that they literally apologized for but that we totally disregarded! Point fingers at them for their mistakes!

Me, already exhausted: Wow. Of course. Why am I not surprised?

Anyone can tell you the words you long to hear… that is easy, but it’s also meaningless. They have nothing to lose as long as they continue to spin your mind around pretty words and pull you in. It takes vulnerability and a great deal of love to tell you the difficult things you would rather not hear… and the ones that do, they are genuine, for they have everything to lose…

Alright, the SU critical stuff is starting to get on my nerves.

1. I’m the art book, there’s a little doodle of a gem that people are calling racist. This is a classic example of nitpicking, finding the one thing that could could be perceived as a wrong in a sea of otherwise amazing content.

Rebecca Sugar even had to apologize. Someone else stepped forward and said that they drew it, but it was a quick thing they didn’t think about, and they said they were sorry.

It clearly wasn’t on purpose. It didn’t come from a place of malice, more like a small accident that wasn’t a big deal in the grand scheme of things.

No ones perfect. Let’s move on and give poor Rebecca a break. She doesn’t deserve it.

2. I also hate how people complain about the art style/sizes of characters changing. Do you have your own show? No? Well clam up cause it’s a lot harder than you can imagine.

Drawing varies. It’s impossible for someone to draw by hand and get the exact same piece than before. It might be extremely close, but there’s going to be differences. Especially when there are multiple people working on the drawing.

And even then it’s amazing! I love the art style! We should be praising it instead of basing it lady and right. That’s no way to treat this gem of a show.

Moral of the story is, don’t be a nitpicking person that takes things WAY too seriously. Just enjoy great things like Steven Universe and stop complaining so much.
