Hopefully, I've changed my Moa settings to better reflect that a.) I do still sadly spend more time on Twitter than Mastodon, and b.) I would still like to engage in conversation via both without followers feeling exposed to strangers.

Three recurring themes in my (prose) writing:

- art never wins the fight against broken systems but it is what reminds us to fight and makes fighting worthwhile
- all it takes to be good is to see a wrong and combat it
- monstrosity isn't what shape you take, but what you do

I don't know why this gets me as much as it does, but you'd imagine even a fraction of this kind of bile would gurgle up for the same bitter, ruthlessly uncritical emerging youtube bubble dedicated to arguing that things are bad art because women enjoy them. IDK.

When someone says multiple times, "I wanted to like it, here are even the things I loved a lot about it, but here are my feelings, here is where I think my feelings meet reality--but FUCK ME if you enjoy the thing",

that person doesn't hate you. They *trust* you, IMO.

There are other media commentators on you tube dot com who are downright nasty and have no problem telling people to their face that their enjoyments and their thoughtfulness is a blight on art as aesthetic enterprise.
This is not that. This has even been tamer than judgment.

As someone eager to see Kubo's work return to the screen soon, I really appreciated this video.

But also, an aside:
how come some folks on twitter watched this video end with one of the healthiest sentiments about fandom critique and still think he *hates* Bleach or its fans?

Turns out the true villain of Bleach… was me.
