So I’m seeing this post going around with all these people upset that the tarot deck and all the official art in general has all the Homestuck characters as white all the time, and I while I understand the anger over POC not being represented in the comic
I don’t think
First, lets make it clear, he makes fun of the STEREOTYPES not the RACE. I don’t see a non-stereotype in there (INCLUDING the “sensitive white guy foster dad”), do you? Now let’s continue.
Did you drop out reading Homestuck as soon as a Hipster stereotype was made?
Did you drop out when a Furry girl stereotype was made?
Did you drop out when a joke of a Social justice blogger, Gamer girl, Gamer guy, 50’s dude, mentally disabled or Weaboo stereotype was made?
A pimp, NBA player, or black guy with an afro are all stereotypes of the same! May you align this with a chauvinist hipster, 90s skater bro, or guy with a pointy anime shades? Didn’t you get the memo Hussie’s characters are each and every a cultural stereotype? Why does he need to tip toe around what are black stereotypes as he done with all the white stereotypes? Obviously you think white stereotypes don’t need that special treatment like you think the black stereotypes need, oh Social Justice Blogging OP? Obviously you weren’t offended by that, despite it being it your supposed stereotype. Yeah, Social Justice Bloggers “didn’t have the same indecent treatment in history”. So how dare he make a stereotype of a mentally disabled guy! Back in Act 5 Sollux joked about sex offenders and Karkat called Nepeta autistic. You’re seriously going to bash him for using stereotypical black people now?
Hussie is just calling it as he sees it. Which is for all stereotypes he’s pulled to light, black and white. Do you privately censor your brain as you see a stereotype like a black Pimp or a 90s skater bro whenever you even think of them? Jesus Christ, these stereotypes EXIST and I dont know what you’re trying to blame anyone for actually admitting they acknowledge the existence of them. Is that what you’re so hurting over or???…
Here, just for you, lets see a world were the over 30 or so stereotypes made in Homestuck is all only white people
would you still concern on
whats going on
about this person’s representation
1. This is very condescending??? I’m not even a social justice blogger. This is probably the most moderate post about the whole topic. Everyone was writing essays about the lack of representation, and I just wanted to point out Hussie’s history with that.
2. White stereotypes have never been used to discriminate, dehumanize, and kill human beings. Show me some hipster or furry oppression a la Uncle Tom’s Cabin and then we can talk.
