me watching teen wolf: a season by season summary
Jeff Davis has never apologized for anything - lol he literally deleted his tumblr and then his twitter because he couldn’t deal with people asking him why he made so many racist and sexist choices with the show (but before he deleted, he called the people questioning him “trolls”.) JD treats Posey in a way that is downright alarming, and he has also treated the actresses and actors differently.
People love to defend JD by saying that the “actors chose to leave,” but if I had to work for a racist sexist scumbag, I’d fucking leave too. Not to mention the huge difference in how he has treated female/POC actors who leave v. white male actors who leave - a.k.a., killing the characters played by women and POC while letting the white male characters live. On top of that, JD couldn’t even make Boyd’s death about BOYD - it had to be all about the angst of a white dude, and, haha, now we’re in 3B, seeing the two white men who killed Boyd being integrated into the show.
THIS is an important post to read, as it discusses how you don’t have to be consciously racist/sexist to perpetrate racism and sexism. Nobody’s saying that JD is a member of the KKK or whatever, but he claimed he wanted to make a show without sexism, racism, homophobia - and he totally and completely failed. Look at how Danny STILL doesn’t have a character arc of his own. The fucking TWINS are more involved in the show than he is. There was also the #killdanny incident which, ha, honestly made my blood boil.
I know I cry about Boyd and Erica a lot, but I’m glad Sinqua and Gage don’t have to deal with that anymore. I just wish Posey didn’t have to put up with that shit and that they would ACTUALLY fucking do something with Danny, instead of keeping him as the token gay character to preserve their facade of being a halfway progressive show.
Seriously, TPose deserves so much better than this, and so much better than this shitty racist fandom, too.
