Okay, why do I have a follower here?  It’s appreciated, but I don’t have any intention of posting here!  This is a quietly hoarded URL out of curiosity by a white, disabled chick who noticed it open.  I’m not the same person as that one awesome post complaining about how a lot of (white) authors write people with skin darker than theirs with food terms.

I’m on the side of ‘we do have way too many pale, three-eyed Cecils, and it is something of appropriation to have that third eye on his forehead, running against the essence of the show.  Brown and blackface are loaded with too much outside context to be a good idea, and there isn’t enough representation for people outside white, straight, assigned male at birth, and neurotypical.  And do your fucking research before you make claims about anything.  You might be surprised.’

What the hell, there’s seven now.  Am I going to have to do a quick copypasta to PM to you guys?
