Just a few things to address this week.
We certainly agree that it is important to interrogate all media for harmful messages such as supporting imperialism. However, we do not support only taking this approach with media you don’t personally enjoy or expecting everyone to disregard all other aspects.
There is no problem-free content available for consumption, and it’s perfectly possible to enjoy media without supporting the politics of the creators. The only way to improve the mediascape is to encourage creators to keep the positive techniques and leave behind as many of the problems as possible.
