Oh no! We almost set up the conflict of the episode subtly! Send a choir of children to outright sing a character’s motivations so the audience doesn’t need any intelligence to watch this!
You know, if the most recent generation grew up on stuff like this, it would explain a lot. It feels like some people can only get a plot point if it’s directly established…
Should note, I don’t think this show is terrible, I’ve seen far worse. I just don’t like this one element.

Thomas Jefferson: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal…
Jefferson’s slaves: Wait, what about us?
Thomas Jefferson: not all men

Well, to be fair, introducing legislation to abolish slavery at the time would have divided the union. I mean, when Lincoln did it, he had half the country on his side at least; not so much on Jefferson’s case.

Also, he couldn’t free his own slaves because someone else would claim ownership of them before they could get very far.

So really, the best thing Jefferson and the other founding fathers could do was just make sure the men under them were well taken care of; a promise not every slave owner could upheld.

so, uh, i was watching the new episode of persona 4 golden and…
what the hell
what the fucking hell is this cissexist and transphobic imagery

what the fucking hell this is disgusting

anime pulls this garbage so often and people think its funny and i hate it so much. I can’t even count the times ive seen this kind of thing in KIDS anime too, it’s horrible.

I hate to ask this, but could someone explain the context in this scene a little more?
It just looks like Yu Narukami is dismayed at something off distance while a person does a flirtatious pose. I don’t understand the transphobia tag very well.

several people are asking whats transphobic about that Persona image, which is odd to me since it seems pretty obvious, but ill explain anyway:
the character is clearly disturbed by the person behind him, who is supposed to be a “funny” caricature of a trans person. The person is meant to look weird, undesirable, and “creepy” especially since they are hitting on the male character there.
it’s a horrible thing anime and cartoons do a lot where they paint trans people (especially trans women) as creepy and undesirable by making them look like cross-dressers with clear/exaggerated stubble or muscles or other masculine traits combined with feminine traits, as if that’s a bad thing. (it’s not) They’re basically being treated as the butt of a joke. like “Haha gross that weirdo is flirting with me!! ew!”
It’s not hard to see why portraying trans people or people who don’t look either 100% like a “boy” or “girl” to be bad and creepy is a really, REALLY gross thing.
sorry I’m not very good at explaining this stuff but I hope you can see why it’s bad.

A large reason so many transgender people die of hate crimes is because of humor like this. They are feared by the public, and jokes like this feed off that fear. It’s why so many men see trans people trying to pick up guys as them actively trying to trick them instead of lonely people desperate for intimacy but not desperate enough to bend to the whim of those who see them as objects.
