I'm quite proud. I think I've managed step 1 towards giving a friend of mine an insight into the racebending problems of Film!Avatar.
Him: "Don't get why people bash it."
Me: "Various race issues, whitewashing, etc."
Him: "Inuits don't look like they come from central China. Also, whitewashing means nothing IMNSHO."
Me: "Actually, they kind of do. *wikipedia link* Yellowface and Blackface don't have a pretty history behind them. *two more links*"
Him: "You could have a point there. But there's other stuff [a little derail-y]"
Step 2: Try to introduce him to the concept of privilege, which should hopefully start to counteract the derailing. If I do it gently enough without teel dears, he'll listen. As he's NEVER EVER EVER WRONG EVER, arguing is totally pointless. If I can get him to say "you may have a point" again, then I'll have done my job. Quite pleased with the result thus far though, it's much further than I necessarily expected.

Mousie no more
Hello. ("Hello World.")
Who set this up for me?
Um, thanks :D
No seriously, I just logged into my email to find a verification email from Journalfen. With my username as with LJ.
If it was someone from F_W, then thank you! *waves*
If it wasn't, then thank you anyway, random stranger! *waves more*
