Has she done or tweeting something recently bad or have people just suddenly starting paying attention to the goblins?
I'm sickly fascinated by the phenomenon of destructive archetypes being perpetuated generation after generation with none of us ever able to take responsibility for breaking those chains. In fact, it's bizarre how the more rich and powerful the person is, the less responsible they become. :/
Don't get me wrong: I do believe "decisions made outside of consciousness" is a real phenomenon, and all of us are subject to it. What I can't believe is how often someone influential is *led* *to* *an* *open* *door* and a way out, but they can't be bothered to even try and take it.
In Rowling's case, retcons have real power to do some good and show some appreciation for fans. (And I normally can't stand retcons.) You can work them into later episodes without taking older ones off the market. Your more hidebound followers can ignore them, too. If they want.
But oh dear either it's too much work or some marketer/handler advised against it so she folded. Feh.
@FuchsiaShock Correct me if I am wrong, but aren't goblins traditionally presented as greedy creatures? How is that related to anti-Semitism? Genuinely confused. 😓
@FuchsiaShock As in, I know anti-Semitists says Jews are greedy, I just don't get how the Harry Potter goblins are supposed to represent Jews.
@CanisMajoris Because art is created in a vacuum?
For your next trick will you be trying to argue queer coded Disney villains aren't homophobic because they're not explicitly referred to as gay and obviously anyone who says so must be the real homophobe for associating camp villainy with LGBT people?
@FuchsiaShock I will ignore the snark as it doesn't add anything constructive to this conversation. I asked a genuine question, how are HP goblins Jews?
@CanisMajoris I don't believe you're asking in good faith, given that the topic has been thoroughly explored in other places and you haven't bothered to look, instead have just repeatedly asked me.
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
