At least my Political Science professor would be happy. The man never meet an issue he could not immediately make more complicated with a few thoughts.

The man can genuinely make the most iron clad defenses of some things you would not believe. He doesn’t support any of it, but he can lawyer up like nobody’s business.

I guess that’s why he was approached to be a spokesman for the KGB way back when…

Okay, so I like 95% agree with this, but in America at least prostitution is very much an illegal activity . Sooo yeah there’s that little detail.

nobody’s disputing the legality of the practice, it’s just a matter of treating sex workers with basic human decency. 

I didn’t mean to sound like they don’t deserve basic human decency. I just meant that committing a crime comes with some level of shame to be had. Even criminals deserve basic decency, but like identity theft or embezzlement or assault or drunk driving there is a level of shame that comes with committing a crime of you’re own volition (cause obviously it is different in cases where the person’s agency has been stripped away).

okay but um no

prostitution is (in a perfect world where sex workers are not abused) a victimless crime, like petty drug charges (shitty comparison but its the easiest I can think of). it’s on a completely different level than stealing someone’s identity or physically assaulting someone or reckless driving. to compare them is honestly kind of insulting?

it’s not our place to shame somebody for their occupation if it doesn’t hurt anybody.

So, I went down the rabbit hole a bit. I’ve got a shit load of tabs open, and I’m basically beginning the process of writing out a school paper now…

Wanna just have this discussion in real life at some point? Cause I’m not opposed to writing a paper (honestly I’m kinda in favor of it for the practice and may actually do it tomorrow), but I don’t think this is the most productive place for a back and forth conversation of a complicated nature.

Also I apologize for making this immensely more complicated than it probably needs to be. And for annoying the few people that even read my blog. I’ll go back to my paper now.

"Comic books shouldn’t make political statements!"

jennofsol:

I’ve always hated that mentality when it comes to comic books. Why? Because it tells me that the person reading the comic has no idea what the fuck they’re talking about. They’re so stuck in their own little bubble, they haven’t even realized that the very first comic books were pretty much all about making political statements.

Superman and Captain America were “superhuman” individuals, created by Jewish men during World War II. Captain America was literally created by a super soldier serum, and all around the “perfect” human in the eyes of the Nazis. And what was he doing? Killing Nazis. 

The X-Men was created during the civil rights era, and their struggle was supposed to represent the struggle of PoC, women, and GSRM. 

Comic books were born out of political statements. So if you sit there and say, “they shouldn’t make political statements,” all that tells me is that you don’t agree with the political statement, and therefore you feel uncomfortable.

And if you think that a Muslim female superhero is a “political statement,” ask yourself, “why? Why is it a political statement?” Ask yourself why our society is structured in a way that a Muslim superhero, whether the Green Lantern or Ms. Marvel, is a big deal.

All media inherently make political statements in some manner. Belief systems and ideologies are processed and displayed to the masses through the media we create and consume. 

If people are upset by something for make “political statements” then the odds are its because they don’t like the message. Which is really says a lot about them as individuals and the subjects being addressed.

Captain America dealt with Watergate type scandals during that era. Tony Stark got wrapped up in government oversight controversies that lead to death and suffering. Spiderman deals with corrupt media figures using their position of power to turn public opinion against him and Daredevil has dealt with old school political machines run by crooks that create all manner of crimes.

Comic books don’t have to make political statements because comic books ARE political statement.
