if only because of the way Brie Larson has been using the film to virtue signal non-stop

Oh no, how dare a celebrity being granted public influence use it to help reporters of color and school children.

and all of her comments regarding white men

White dudes will be fine. They survived the Great War of Wonder Woman Banning All Men From All Theaters. They survived The Scandal of Brie Not Clapping For A White Man Because He's An Abuser. They can survive this. I believe in them.

No, I will NOT watch that video but I and other people can still criticise your point, because we have heard this bullshit countless time before.

Knock it off, dude.

[up][up][up] A lot are basically harassing & sending death threats to them though.

I think they outnumber the people asking for more than just claims.

Even then if someone’s racked up 20 years worth of allegations & general negative opinions from people, there’s prolly a nugget of truth there.

Though that’s beside the point.

I'm a filthy white boy and I'd like to think my kind deserves a sizable chunk of the mockery and flack that we get, to be frank. Let Brie and co. have this.

I won't rag on you for not caring much for CM, but your mentality here is...not a very good look.

while some white men are indeed bigoted, others just don't like being constantly told that they are complete ***holes and are being shamed for their skin color and gender

Brie Larson said nothing of the sort.

Larson: "Am I saying I hate white dudes? No I'm not. But if you make the movie that is a love letter to women of color, there is an insanely low chance a woman of color will have a chance to see your movie and review your movie."

Her statements about the majority of critic and publicity spaces being comprised of white men isn't aimed at forcing out them. It's aimed at herself to create more open spaces with the privilege she's been afforded.

Larson: "I want to go out of my way to connect the dots. It just took me using the power that I’ve been given now as Captain Marvel. [The role] comes with all these privileges and powers that make me feel uncomfortable because I don’t really need them. It’s a by-product of the profession and a sign of the times. But any uncomfortableness I feel is balanced by the knowledge that it gives me the ability to advocate for myself and others."

Sounds a lot like With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility.

Larson can't keep her mouth shut in terms of pushing her extremely leftist activism and her attacking people who aren't a minority.

Yeah, there's no point arguing with you. I don't need to hear any more.

when Larson can't keep her mouth shut in terms of pushing her extremely leftist activism

Bahaha, it's not even leftist. It's intersectionality 101. It's just left out of center.

and her attacking people who aren't a minority.

...so attacking minorities is better than attacking majorities?

It's best if you don't attack any demographic, be it majority or minority. Especially ones who make up a bulk of the paying audience.

Also, "virtue signaling" is a phrase that is, essentially, used by people who don't like to be criticized for the things they say. You want to know what it means? Here, watch this video:

People have been trying to get those who advocate positive social change to "keep their mouth shut" for a long, long time, and it's always given me a little more faith in the world that those people can still be summarily ignored.

LDragon2, you've done this many times before, coming into a thread apropos of nothing and dropping a link to some doomsaying or negative article/video just to stir up an argument.

You were also specifically told to knock it off by the site moderators, if I'm not mistaken.

Well she didn’t. She was talking about spaces of only white film critics.

I seem to recall most of these “stop virtue signaling” blokes not being particularly fond of critics.

The film hasn't come out yet, so any criticism of it would be premature at best. And your criticism of Larson herself is so full of faults, it's just...silly at this point.

[up][up] If your "criticism" had basis in reality, sure. But as this entire page has shown, much of what you say is built upon accusations that aren't actually true, misuse of phrases you don't actually understand, and general aggressiveness that isn't actually warranted.
