@melissasage we always kinda assumed that white culture had to be taken as an axiom for his stories to make any sense.

@violet @melissasage it's like if you took all the racist anxieties of the 19th century onward and put them into one weasly little man

@melissasage how is it not? he's a white dude writing about white dudes, being racist and misogynistic
textbook white cishet dude

@melissasage I have a deep fondness for cosmic horror. The idea that we are tiny and lost in an indifferent universe that will crush us without noticing us resonates in my psyche.

Everything you said is true.

@mwlucas yeah, like I've said elsewhere in the thread, it's all about context. for Lovecraft eldritch horror is definitely tied to anxiety about losing white power; but it doesn't have to be in other media, the same way that elves don't have to be aristocratic forebears just because that's who they are for Tolkein
