anonymous asked:

Wait, so I'm confused, do you hate RT or not? Like you blog about them constantly, but also you seem to take very serious issue with them (mainly that thing about the editor work review)

This is a pretty loaded question. I love RT with all my heart, I really do. It’s been my main source of entertainment for years, and it’s how I met almost all of my internet friends. If you take a look around my room, it is literally plastered with RT posters and half my closet is RT shirts. Really, my blog is dedicated to it. So yeah, I like RT. 

However, they make plenty of choices I don’t agree with. We’ve all seen the drama surrounding Kathleen, Shane, and RWBY. The common thread between all of them is how RT treats its people. Employees seem overworked and management seems incompetent. There isn’t much thought put into the people, which frankly, bothers me. When looking at other reviews of RT on Glass Door (the site that original work review was from), they all pretty much say the same thing. It’s a fun place to work but there’s no room for career growth and you’re always overworked. There is no paid overtime despite how many hours the animators are working. Another review on Glass Door said that “people would pay to mop our floors,” and its true. I bet there are some fans out there that would absolutely do it. However that doesn’t excuse the fact that their actual employees should be compensated for the work they do. Not everyone is Monty Oum and can sit in front of a computer and animate for 80 hours a week, and that’s not a bad thing. Just because some of your employees are young and starstruck to be working at RT doesn’t mean they should be allowed to take advantage of them by underpaying and overworking them.

In addition to the way they treat their employees, I also don’t like the queerbaiting within RWBY. From promising us there would be LGBT characters from almost the day the show started coming out, to now, 5 years later, there has not been a single character revealed to be LGBT. Nothing. Not even in the background of the dance. They could have casually had boys dancing with boys, girls dancing with girls. Whatever. Instead, every time the question is brought up now, Miles hides behind his cover of not being comfortable with writing relationships, despite Jaune/Pyrrha and Nora/Ren both pretty much being canon by the end of volume 4. Its frankly disgusting and honestly only the tip of the iceberg for the list of problems I have with RWBY. However, that doesn’t mean I don’t love the show. I still will watch it and enjoy the parts I can.

I also despise RTs strategy of just letting everything blow over. RT is literally allergic to giving a statement in regards to anything controversial surrounding it. And you know what the worst part is? It totally fucking works. Eventually, people forget about the discourse and it all gets swept under the rug. Burnie has even talked about it on the RT podcast before (when the Fine Brothers were going through that React World thing). From a business standpoint, its a great idea. However, as a fan, that really fucking sucks. I want to hear a “sorry” from them every once in a while or an acknowledgement of things they have screwed up. Even this year, I’ve heard RTX was a shitshow. Ticket prices are higher than even some of the most popular conventions. Lines are unbearably long (to the point where some people were having medical problems). Some people waited almost the entire day on Friday to get their badges. However, we’ve heard nothing from RT apologizing for how the convention was run this year and I doubt we ever will. 

Don’t idolize the things you love. Don’t put them up on a pedestal. Don’t think that they can literally do no wrong. RT is a company made up of human beings, who screw up just like you and me. They’ve messed up before and they certainly will again. When they do fuck it up, it’s our responsibility to call them out on it.
