Canadian weather we were so close
Like Tuesday is lovely and seasonal and like 5’C you go Tuesday for for you.
But then we have 10cm of snow (4 inches) on Wednesday and back to brutally cold temperatures on Thursday (-8’C is 17’F) and you just think w h y
worst. winter. ever.
And my blood is all I see
As you steal my soul from me
I need a hug or 6 shots of vodka

Each person uses media and television and reacts to it in different ways.
Some people purely want to engage with media for entertainment and don’t really want to analyze much deeper than that. Which, in itself is perfectly fine, because fiction can be an escape for some people. However, other people like to critically engage with media in a way to point out real-world social issues, such as sexism or racism, as media doesn’t exist in a vacuum and the world it’s created and consumed it do very much matter.
The issue comes in when people who do use media for entertainment or escapism jump on people trying to discuss or point out social issues within media or say that they’re overanalyzing something or taking the fun out of it or “It’s just a TV show”. Because, it really isn’t just a show or a movie or a book, it’s a work of media created and consumed in a racist, sexist, classist, etc. society, and thus generally contains or promotes areas of social injustice in some way.
If you simply want to watch a show or read a book and engage in fandom in a way that is simply for entertainment, all the power to you, but please don’t derail conversations other people are having about social issues in media, because it stops important discourse and thought. If reading about stuff like that bothers you, there’s always blacklisting certain terms or unfollowing or muting people who do engage with fandom in a social justice minded way.
