Iris West haters are so sad
Let them be sad. Let them leave the Flash fandom. Their ability to move the goal posts just to pretend Iris is selfish, shallow and self-righteous is truly God Tier. They’re sprinting across the field passing goal posts like it’s a relay race.
And they always hide behind the stipulation that you can’t KNOW that they in particular are racist or sexist.
Their hatred of Iris West makes me wonder what a black woman has to do to be accepted as a romantic lead by these people. Don’t tell me this willingness to kill Iris off is unconnected to the willingness to kill off Veil, or Poussey, or Abbie Mills. These are not coincidences. This is a pattern. What Iris West haters believe in their heart of hearts is irrelevant. Their hate contributes to a culture where black women are held to impossible standards, and treated as a disposable object lesson.
We don’t need that toxic bullshit; nobody does. I hope that sooner or later, they will run out of shows that cater to their desire to erase black female characters. And I’m proud that the Flash isn’t playing their games.
