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

Even then white men are currently in the Great War Of Harassing And Sending Death Threats To Two Voice Actresses And Cons for Ousting A Voice Actor For Decades Of Harassment.

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.
LDragon2, you've been cautioned many times about coming into threads just to doomsay.
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.

Brie Larson said nothing of the sort.
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.
Sounds a lot like With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility.

Yeah, there's no point arguing with you. I don't need to hear any more.
Bahaha, it's not even leftist. It's intersectionality 101. It's just left out of center.
...so attacking minorities is better than attacking majorities?
Edited by Tuckerscreator on Feb 18th 2019 at 12:10:57 PM
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:
And this is why I don’t like politics, it gets ugly.
At least with Thanos his views are fucking nonsense so we can all agree he’s just out of it
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.
Edited by Anomalocaris20 on Feb 18th 2019 at 3:18:18 PM
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.
I have already sent a holler to the mods. Hopefully this'll get sorted out.
So I'm not allowed to be critical of Larson or the film then?
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.
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.

Not to mention, as others have said, L Dragon 2, you have done this sort of things many times before. Just drop some links into a thread out of nowhere and try to raise controversies.
Edited by Nightwire on Feb 18th 2019 at 12:28:35 PM
I take it I'm not welcome here.
Only so long as you continue to engage in the same behavior that the mods have already warned you to stop doing.
