    I must admit that this entire analogy you've been running with on this matter is one I haven't entirely understood.

    The important thing I was communicating in what you quoted is the audience that matters most for that post you wrote is everyone besides the agent you were directly replying to.

    In internet discussions the person your writings or posts will have the biggest effect on is usually someone not even posting in the thread. Possibly not now or ever even logged in. You pointed out quite well that there is a huge difference in the nature of the politics in different entertainment situations. One good example right now is the new Batwoman series vs the classic Batman series. You recognize the futility of your overt reply target getting anything from it, but if you shift to thinking of them as just providing a start to sink your teeth into, with way more than that one individual getting something useful out of it, you'll have much less reason to regret "trying".

    Our new guest is a simulacrum and their interest in the character/franchise is a pantomime for their real interests. The gaming industry, etc. is infested with cargo cults split along ones who don't grok the point of your post, or ones who do and see it as a weapon. So you've got people who genuinely can't or won't distinguish the difference between entertainment where social topics come out naturally, vs a social topic looking for a property/fandom to force itself into By Any Means Necessary.

    They are "fans/creators" as a method or tactic.

    For a very long time the very people accused of being the most "ist" have also been by far the most tolerant, accepting, welcoming, inviting, assisting, taxed, sets of demographically identifiable clubs, industries, and populations anywhere on the planet to every walk of life that will come in and tell them just how awful they are and have been giving the accusers every possible platform and leg up to prove that the ism cults really do know better.

    These days there are a lot more of us now who, through abuse or similar as kids then gaslit into silence into adulthood, have built up an immunity to their lies and can see them coming a mile away.

    not that it matters since he missed the point anyway

    possible that zer wants to be taken at face value

    So there I was about 10 years ago minding my own business, reading The Tao, grooving to Alan Watts, shitposting on AboveTopSecret, when out of nowhere that Jesus fella started to make so much sense that he made some even ancienter Jews start making sense. It's been a crazy ride ever since.
