I appreciate you response. As a whole, I wanted to discuss social issues, possibly from my view as a Gen Z (not speaking for all; impossible), but of the reaction of the younger generations to certain social issues. Resurgence or continuance from past generations. A passing of the torch, if you will.
I know you did not call me one, but I would never consider myself a conformist. There have been a few times where people have tried to touch on such topics as Gen Z or Millenial feminists. But in one way or another, they’ve missed the mark.
To join a conversation in topics such as this is not conforming. I like to challenge societal norms, such as gender roles, equality in the legal system (E.g. Abuse victims - Male & Female). Though I have not officially been diagnosed, this could also be due to the fact that my doctor believes I have “high functioning” autistic. An unconscious want or need to question some of the ways society expects us to act.
In Moxie, the premise was there for an amazing film. Unfortunately, many were disappointed by the fact that the story was again told from the perspective of a white, straight female and the POC characters were used as side characters, even though they were the ones facing the most backlash and oppression (outside of Katelynn). This as well as only a brier mention of white privilege. Any of the POC characters would have made for much more effective narrators, in particular Lucy or Claudia.
In Ginny and Georgia, people were fed up with Ginny very quickly, especially after the "Oppression Olympics " conversation with Hunter. I liked the show for the most part, but there were certain things that were missed opportunities. As a multiracial individual, i was upset at how some of Samantha’s comments were never addressed. Especially the one where she was fetishizing biracial/multiracial people by saying she would get with a black guy just so she could have mixed race babies. This is a source of contention in the multiracial community, coupled with a lack of sense of belonging.
I want a conversation on these topics. I know this is touchy and may be one of those “Hill to die on” subjects, but I just want to get a sense of modern viewpoints, which it hopefully wouldn’t be too hard to attract Gen Z as they comprise a vast majority of Wattpad users.
