ISN’T DOWNPLAYING G1 STARSCREAM’S ABUSE UNDER MEGATRON AND INFANTALIZING HIM IN THE PROCESS SO CUTE AND FUNNY
This is not cute or funny. This is making light of abuse, period. I don’t care how popular or talented of an artist you are or how decent a person you are in real life—this kind of shit is unacceptable. Please stop.
Also, if you’re going to post shit like this, PUT SOME DAMN TRIGGER WARNINGS UP. Your work does not exist in a fucking bubble.
brb laughing my ass off
ISN’T BEING A PASSIVE AGGRESSIVE CAPS-MONGER JUST THE CUTEST LITTLE THING EVER. TEE-HEE!
And how about I now go on to not only rip the artist in a blatant manner because something offended me, and instead of being polite about it and discussing what bothered me in a conducive manner with the artist, I go on to complete ignore and/or forget canon!
Like how Starscream isn’t a poor victim that needs my sympathy, but a backstabbing, lying, traitorous little cretin that got beat for regularly fouling up plans, being a backstabber, a liar, and an all around pain in the ass.
And also completely overlook the fact that these two are fictional characters, because everyone knows that what people draw and/or write represents what they think and/or believe. Because I totally know that the artist doesn’t work with those suffering from abuse or something as equally emotionally draining and traumatic on a day to day basis and this might be the artist’s way of dealing with something like that. Or, again, that this does not, in fact, trivialize anything as it is dealing with fictional characters that are known to be extremely violent and abusive to each other rather than one simply beating on the other, but real abuse would be absolutely terrifying to trivialize.
Here, let me once more CAPSLOCK THE HELL OUT OF SOMETHING to make sure the artist understands that I have been offended, do not find this amusing or appealing, and cannot find any other way to express myself than using vulgar language and attempting to guilt the artist for unintentionally hurting me in some manner.
(And if you decide to get pissy with me so help me Primus I will browbeat you with your own excuse for being rude. “Your work does not exist in a fucking bubble." Neither do your comments.)
