Holy crap, I read those Steven Universe articles and I'm in total shock. I had noticed a few small issues here and there, but those really put it into perspective. Now I feel kind of guilty, do you think it's still an issue to watch the show? Honestly, as a queer women it's really refreshing to find a show that doesn't fetishize same-sex relationships. If you have any suggestions for good shows/books that that are similar in that aspect but not in the racist aspect, please do tell.
For me I’m still gonna watch it but it’s going to be more of a pick and choose what episode type thing going on.
And as for shows Star Vs. The Forces of Evil is pretty good, I don’t think there’s anything racist in it but I can’t really speak on that. (One of the mains is hispanic or latino and they do focus on him and his family a great deal but since I’m not hispanic or latino I can’t really say what’s racist or not)
And if anyone has any other shows that all around have good rep for both lgbt and poc just add them in! I’d love to have a look.
