“It’s not Dolph’s fault he’s a walking Hitler joke!!!!!” You’re right, it’s not, because he’s a fictional character and has no say in his existence. It is instead the fault of the writers + producers for deciding the character was a good idea and letting him through, and they should absolutely be held accountable.
BUT. That doesn’t change the fact that HE’S A WALKING HITLER JOKE and people are one thousand percent well within reason to be uncomfortable with him and any attempt to make him ~cute and loveable~.
Because that’s ultimately what’s awful about him as a character: every time he’s on screen the narrative does its level best to make him as cute and loveable as possible.
It’s like being handed a piece of rotten fruit and told it’s a cupcake. You can see that it’s a piece of rotten fruit, but the person handing it to you is insisting that it’s a delicious cupcake and that you’ll love it.
yesterday i said i was gay and then this guy said “wait are you a lesbian?” and i said “no” and he said “you shouldn’t say that then” but this is the same kid who says f*ggot a lot and uses gay as an insult
ive seen a lot of people who are against things like punching nazis because “hate breeds hate” and “don’t fight fire with fire!”
i agree to some extent. im a fairly pacifistic person, being physically violent to people isn’t my first course of action, but when it comes to nazis, white supremacists, and other people of that variety, we are dealing with a whole other situation. you cannot stop a nazi by talking to them. we’ve tried, and that’s the whole reason the nazi regime succeeded as much as it did the first time around, because the rest of the world refused to actually take action, and just said “thats not cool hitler :(”.
dealing with things like this peacefully is a nice thought, but that’s all it is. a thought.
if violence is the only language these people know, then isn’t it polite to greet them in their mother tongue?
thanks @y-annah for the inspo!, here’s my paladinsona
Home planet: Soliseoria
Solar system: Galabros
Weapons: electric knuckle busters (likes to call them their “buster babies”) and two knives
Abilities: sleight of hand, sucking up to people, laughing, “hand-to-hand” combat (haha)
Personality: very nice very passionate person, gets overexcited and sometimes way too aggressive, likes to dab with all four arms
Backstory: their home planet is actually allies with Zarkon and his army but the Galra like to overstep their boundaries being racist/speciest fucks oppressing the people and all that so they were like Fuk It Im Outta Here™ and became a space pirate before encountering and joining Voltron
