My name is Sarah, and I like Daft Punk and Star Trek. Talk to me about space and robots, I'm literally begging you. I am 14 years old, and I like to post my art and writing.
WHY ARE PEOPLE WITH PENISES GIVEN FREE CONDOMS WHEN THEY DON’T NEED TO HAVE SEX BUT PEOPLE WITH VAGINAS STILL HAVE TO PAY FOR THINGS LIKE PADS AND TAMPONS FOR SOMETHING THEY CAN’T STOP
lord jesus I dont want to see this stupid post one more time
its because you can spread AIDS, HIV, and a plethora of other STDs through unprotected sex. while it would be nice for pads and tampons to be distributed for free, the fact is that there really isn’t any danger if they aren’t.
so free condoms can save lives, whereas free pads and tampons don’t.

yeah. I feel the same way. It’s not that I think that having a gay couple or POC is sjw fodder, I think the way they go about delicate issues is heavy handed.
For example, I thought that Janice, Cecil’s disabled niece, was poor representation of a disabled person. Janice is only talked about through other people. She is not a character who has ever appeared on the show, that I know of, since I haven’t listened to the last two episodes. The point of representation is to show a someone as a rounded character. Now, because of the format of the show, it’s pretty difficult for characters to have development outside of what Cecil says about them. However, other characters, such as Tamika, Dana, Carlos, The Faceless Old Woman Who Lives in Your House, Hiram McDaniels, hell, even former Mayor Pamela Winchell have more development than her. All we know about her is that she is Cecil’s niece, disabled, and a girl scout.
Perhaps if Fink and Cranor intend to spend more time writing her into the story in the future, she could become a positive part of the show. I’m not able to predict what they’ll do.
But if Janice only shows up when it’s time for Steve—her presumably able-bodied father—to announce that she is disabled and that there’s nothing wrong with her, it’s clear that Janice was a plot device used in order for Fink and Cranor to get up on a soapbox and talk about ableism. She has become her identity, which is exactly the opposite of representation. That’s tokenism, and that’s wrong.
If Fink and Cranor wanted to say that “correcting” disabled people was wrong, they could’ve tweeted it. If the entire point of your character can be reduced to a tweet, you need to develop them further.
this is getting long, so it’ll continue under a read more, for the convenience of others.
