Yes lets complain about people making POC queer characters that appeal to them and make them happy and secure instead of critizing mainstream media and the millions of people who don’t lift a finger and even support all shows being dominated by all white casts who typically use POC men as jokes and POC women as sex objects?
Did you ever consider that so many people are making these characters because this is what we want to see in the shows we admire? That even the most progressive seeming and highly praised shows are still far behind ? Maybe people like these characters because (1) its a fashion sense people love get over it because fashion changes constantly GASP (2) maybe these people want to be represented and the ideas and developments of these characters are still in their infant stages because its only recently become mainstream and these characters will grow and develop as we get older and used to having them around us and there is nothing wrong with people that. You don’t get to pretend mainstream stuff is shitty when suddenly you’re sharing the spotlight with other people who might be different that you.
So don’t pretend that you’re just making some sort of statement on ‘pandering’ when people are just experimenting and making characters they love and want to see, good god stop being a brat and share the spotlight with others.

Honestly can’t wait for the 50 shades movie to normalize the manipulation of lower-level female employees. Can’t wait for the new wave of “consent is sexy” banners on the cover of cosmo. Can’t wait for teen girls to think that a controlling relationship is romantic. Can’t wait for sexualized violence to become increasingly mainstream. And most of all, I can’t wait for BDSM to be labeled a feminist revolution.

some muggleborn like “i want to be an astronaut when i grow up!”

wizard kids like “wtf is an astronaut”

"oh you know…the people who go to the moon"

implying that magical children would know literally nothing outside of the wizarding worldimage

you were saying

Are you forgetting that Mr. Weasley was head of “Muggle Artefacts” and Professor Slughorn didn’t know what dentists were and some high ranking Ministry official insisted on wearing a woman’s nightgown to “fit in” with Muggles during the Quidditch world cup?

They don’t know anything outside the wizarding world!

Which is bizarre considering the only 100% all-wizard village in Great Britain is Hogsmeade. Harry Potter books are great fun but the world-building doesn’t always add up. ^^;
