* I have lost a great deal of faith in deviantART. It is all about business and competing with other sites, has nothing to do with the community any more. I am disenchanted and spend more time elsewhere, but I still submit art here for my friends and any future friends I make here.

Know that, as a result of the deterioration of deviantART, I do not dev-watch many people, so please don't be offended if I don't watch your gallery.

There is no true "limit", but too often we see things get pushed too far, so that means there's a limit somewhere. It can't go "too far" unless there is a limit to cross into that territory.

Just as with the Michelle Rodriguez thing I posted about, there's are ways that people may think they're helping when they're actually hurting. "Stop stealing white people's superheroes--make your own!" Hell, make them better than white superheroes, even. Emotihal wink 1

I have a lot of journals piled up to post, but I figured I'd type this one out anyway.

My watchers have noticed that I made a Batgirl/Cass Cain MLP the other day, and made her have yellow fur. No one's actually gotten mad at me on that (yet), but I did have this much to say;

"I was a little nervous about making her yellow, being Asian and all, but since I intended it to go with the batgirl colors (black and yellow/gold) I figured it should be one of those occupational hazards. Her color shouldn't have to NOT be yellow, JUST because she's Asian. It's not like Asians aren't allowed to like yellow simply because "it's a stereotype" and is sometimes used as an insult to call Asians "yellow people."

First thing was her cutie mark, which was going to be the Batgirl symbol, but in MLP the cutie mark is supposed to be the moment in childhood where one sees their talent and/or the reality of how they see the world. For Cass, that was when she killed a man for the first time--that not killing was the most important thing to her. So I changed her mark to her pigtails from that day (and made it heart shape OH big grin H  I should add that to the artist comment) and thought the yellow as fur would go great with her hair to indicate that she was practically "made" to be Batgirl--then I slapped myself for the potential racism of making her yellow. emotihal anime sweat GIF 2 

I argued with myself for a bit about it. In my circles things like this are talked about frequently, not just race but gender, nationality, sexuality--all kinds of things that happen when someone is ignorant to the markers of possible offense (the reason in Power Rangers that the White Ranger was NEVER called the "White Power Ranger"). The latest being that controversial Batgirl cover with Babs and Joker. Among my friends, it became a debate about "so, things like this cover should be censored because girls are too weak and feeble to be bullied by a villain and kick his ass?" My stance was that female characters should not be protected in a bubble where nothing bad happens to them; they should endure suffering and kick it's ass. Referencing a powerful painful moment in a character's past shouldn't be avoided, it should be made and that character should overcome their pain. Let them wipe the grime off and shine. Emotihal Smile 

With that in mind, I decided not to change my initial idea for Cass pony's color. Emotihal Smile  She was made to be Batgirl, the hero of black and yellow. It was 'decided' the day she wore those pigtails and she felt her heart knowing the pain of empathy"

And that's the long and short of it.

We shouldn't exclude people from something just because of their race, gender, religion, sexuality, whathaveyou. The only people who should consider doing that are companies that can face backlash that will make them less money on their product (and only consider). It's a stupid business move to make, unless it's about art or it's run by someone who's not afraid to make a statement. But when it comes to people being people, there is NO reason to be reverse racist/sexist/etc-ist by excluding someone from something. DON'T throw girls into a bubble where their fictional characters never face things like rape JUST because: "girl." DON'T avoid the color yellow just because you're dealing with an Asian character. They ARE allowed to like yellow and/or gold, and wear it if they want.

Avoiding that "equality" is the limit. That line you really shouldn't cross.
