And yet /co/ got booty-blasted over a "gun control" episode from OK K.O.
The problem isn't whether or not a cartoon is going to make any real-world difference, the problem is that the people in positions of power within cartoons think that this is the case. They are willing to sacrifice everything that made the show enjoyable in the first place to use it as their personal mouthpiece. The reason I have such a massive hard-on for Star vs. is because I get to see Star make the same mistakes I did, and I get catharsis from it. As an adult watching it, there's a sense of peace knowing that the end result of all of her mistakes isn't going to be the end of Star Butterfly, and that gives me hope that maybe, in my future, I too will have a happy ending. The show is made for kids, yes, and I've also said multiple times I wish a cartoon like this existed when I was a kid, instead of John K.'s hyper-reactive toilet humor, because if I had learned half the lessons Marco is learning now about women I would have had a much easier time going into adulthood.
I don't watch cartoons to see a reflection of real life issues, and then have thee show be condescending about the topic.
