>>111841954>He pushed to use Runaan and his husband in the advertisement and a former staff said it was exploitative
I can get behind saying this is a bad idea, not because I personally find it too exploitative, but because I don’t find that ship at all relevant or appealing. Imagine how confusing it’d be if Harrow and his wife’s relationship was used in advertising despite not being a very big part of the show. The target audience that Runaan’s ship is supposed to appeal to finding it exploitative is just another good reason not to do it. > the color of her gloves were too dark to easily see her signing
This is just dumb, though. There’s nothing wrong with this in-universe, and I can’t imagine any audience members would be inconvenienced enough to really care.
If I had any complaints about how Amaya’s deafness is handled, it’d probably be that it feels like there are a lot of cases where her interpreter looks like they’re in a bad position to see her signing and aren’t even looking at her, yet are still interpreting her hyper perfectly. But I don’t even care much because I consider it a minor nitpick and the kind of flaw that is to be expected from a disability that hasn’t had a lot of representation and that show makers are still learning how to do right.
