Hearing talk that the new Harry Potter movie is being “censored” by removing talk abt Dumblefuck and Grimshit being in love at one point or another. Thing is, there’s never any sources provided, especially never in the Chinese perspective, it doesn’t line up with what China would usually do (as there is a lot of LGBT media in China and popular LGBT people who get representation across the nation). And yet people often smear the country as being less progressive as the US, the country that has passed extremely discriminatory laws against LGBT people while in China there’s trans healthcare. Doesn’t make sense. Any of y’all know more about the subject than I do who can send me sources about the topic?
definitely frustrurating and definitely disney doing its best to subvert criticism by appealing to the racism of their majority white liberal possibly gay but mostly an /ally/ consumer base by pretending they cant do more because big bad evil china
