What’s so wrong about saying you don’t like the sequels?
Nothing at all, as I said - “That’s okay and a reasonable opinion” - to not like the Sequels, or parts or aspects of them (or an other Star Wars releases). Why claim this when it was obvious this was not what was meant.
Wanderer seems like a very respectful person, he doesn’t say anything toxic, and he doesn’t say anyone is wrong for having a different opinion than him.
As above, “In fact i would say TLJ fans are the ones who just use racism and sexism as a card against people who have genuine criticism of the movie. Its quite toxic really…”
So TLJ fans are toxic for apparently bringing up race and sexism - but not when he does? Okay.
It seems like you just think he’s toxic because he doesn’t like the sequels,
As above - no.
And it seems you an he are the ones who like to use the word ‘toxic’ here.
and because he shared a video that you didn’t even bother to watch, you just assumed it was a toxic rant when it really wasn’t.
What are you on about? I have seen the video. Are you confusing me with someone else?
And also, if you don’t think that some TLJ defenders accuse TLJ haters of racism and sexism, you clearly haven’t been on Twitter.
No, I’m not on twitter. I am on here, though.
That doesn’t excuse someone stating it is toxic to bring racism and sexism into the debate - despite having done so themselves (like Wanderer has done).
If you have a problem with my post above pointing that out then that is your problem (why so touchy about it?) - along with your misconceptions and erroneous claims.
Another thing, as oojason and others have said on here recently, it is not a question of ‘haters’ or ‘defenders’ when it comes to discussing new Star Wars content - or sides in a debate - it is indeed just opinions.
Those who look to create and maintain ‘sides’ can get swept up in their entrenched views, a ‘hate’, a will to ‘win’ - and may stop listening to other viewpoints. Or often with mistaken assumptions or conclusions, and not give appropiate thought to what has actually been posted before them… before jumping in digging the hole deeper themselves.
