I’m sorry I don’t have transcripts yet. It’s mostly because I’m a terrible person.
I think I would have more to write here but I am making rice and beans right now.
↓ TranscriptMARIA: This isn't just a Joss Whedon thing, y'know.
MARIA: Storm descended from an Witch-Priestess. When Professor Xavier recruited her, she was being worshiped as a goddess by loincloth-wearing Africans. And she was topless.
WREN: And now she's the most empowerful blue-eyed black superhero ever!
MARIA: That's NOT what I'm saying!
MARIA: I'm saying, this isn't an individual problem. It's not something about Joss Whedon or any other one comic or TV writer. There's a larger culture of racism and misogyny and all, that permeates all levels of media, especially a white male dominated film like superhero comics. When there is diversity in media, it tends to come with problematic elements, and even guys like Joss who have progressive goals ALSO have a whole lifetime of privilege to get past. It sucks, but that's the status quo.
SAM: It's too bad you two can't make your own comics. I find creation very therapeutic.
