My main issues is that the meta logic for SU doesn’t even make sense.>Gems are effectively immortal
Outside of propagation they don’t have a real reason for the empire. Biological organisms reproduce because of their mortality to spread their genes to the next generation. Other than just having a planet to penetrate for the sake of it, Homeworld doesn’t need to reproduce.>They’re low on resources
Because they’re Space China. Literally the only reason homeworld is all broken up is because they kept “breeding” for the sake of breeding. In fact we see several gems like those wall gems who are effectively superfluous and worthless as you could of just made the structure out of normal rock like they did on other planets such as Earth.>They’re not wrong for their actions
Gems are effectively insects, especially bees and ants. They have no real sense of family or identity outside of their queens and the few that do are shattered. Steven may have fixed corruption but I doubt a gem who’s friend was shattered over this mess would forgive the Diamonds short of Steven mind controlling them. Even then Steven would only do it because it makes him and the Diamonds feel good not because it’s the right thing to do.>Throw Tantrums and Guilt people with your Suicide and is how you solve everything.
This is the real issue of SU. She might dress it up in garishly girly neon pink but Rose’s/PDs actions coupled with Steven’s “birth” is the most edgy and crawling in my skin bullshit imaginable. Instead of facing your actions you dick yourself to death and leave all the responsibilities of your bullshit to your friends and child. Considering Sugar’s OC when she was a teen (pic related), she just dipped a linkin park album in cake and called it SU.
