You know, while the Rock may be a man of color, he's still 1) a man, so therefore, male privilege, and 2) he's white passing. He's light-skinned for his ethnicity of Black/Samoan, and he's culturally been acccepted by many white people as their idol. The Rock doesn't supoort his culture, he lives under White American culture, so therefore, his status as a PoC is invalidated, and in this case, ScarJo's victory is necessary. Hollywood is just corrupt in general when it comes to white favoritism.
"his status as a PoC is invalidated"
no. Now you are talking out of your ass. I’ve never seen him reject his non-white cultures, but even if he has that doesn’t take away his “poc card” (seriously, what the fuck). He’s still a person of color, and I think that’s pretty clear- even to his white fans. I don’t think you know how poc identities work.
ScarJo’s victory is necessary? If that movie benefits anyone at all, it is exclusively white women. Not women of color, and absolutely not people of color in general. If your feminism has to shit on people of color(including women of color) to be successful, then it’s worth nothing at all.
Please, please, stop calling Ezra a pedophile, when he's not one at all. Tossing that word around is not a good thing.
Ok, that’s it, this is officially the last time we’re ever gonna address this. Is Ezra a dictionary definition pedophile? No. Is he an adult male, who preyed upon a teenage girl, who he KNEW WOULD BE HIS STUDENT and also SPECIFICALLY TARGETED meaning he knew about her age? Yes. So, no, not a dictionary definition pedophile, but when dealing with an adult male, preying on a teenage girl, who he has an established power dynamic over, who may technically be over the age of consent in that particular state (BUT NOT OTHERS, I WOULD POINT OUT, NOT TO MENTION THE ABSOLUTE ILLEGALITY OF TEACHER-STUDENT RELATIONSHIPS IN PENNSYLVANIA), who he spied on for an extended period of time with hidden cameras, and who has, repeatedly, admitted to having the good sense of knowing that every facet of their relationship is wrong but continuing it anyways, we are gonna stretch that dictionary definition just a little bit.
If you find the word triggering, I’m sorry, but then shouldn’t you have a problem with the show itself for putting this relationship forward as something to be idolized, true love, full of wet stares and clandestine romance? We’re just calling ‘em like we see ‘em, and to be honest, if you don’t like it, simply put? Unfollow us.
