I get it: you need Ariel to be white and can’t accept Halle in the role, no matter how irrational your objections are. Just stick to the cartoon and you’ll be fine.
Should I just leave this here then?

No-one here has questioned your right to express your views. Criticising what you’re saying isn’t the same as silencing you.

Again it is what it is sure, but people are allowed to be displeased and should be allowed to express a contrary opinion. The bigger issue now is those who are against the free expression of opposing views.
I'm sorry, but that free expression goes both ways. You're free to express displeasure of this casting, but you should expect free expression of the contrary opinion to yours.

No one is trying to suppress your views or even tell you that you can't have them. You seem to confuse criticism and in same cases humor as an attack against your opinion. That is not the case.

Nope. Her words, action and where she puts her money makes it quite clear that it is not my interpretation. I’d say more but it’s the wrong forum.

Ahhh that’s cute. So casting should be colorblind?


We know what you’d say to that until I say Hamilton. They posted auditions that were quite clear of their exclusions of a certain class of people. The creator is on record saying the look was important to his vision. But we both know this attack only goes one way. It’s fun watching this identity and name calling being used on itself right now. I’d say more but it’s the wrong forum.

Aaannddd you’re still wrong.

Did I say anything about colorblind casting? I didn’t bother reading the rest of your post beyond the colorblind part, since you assumed on my behalf.

Again, criticising your opinions isn’t the same as telling you to stop expressing them.
It’s not a free expression of ideas when you sling mud to stop opposing ideas. Ideas you disagree with are not by definition irrational. You keep attacking things I haven’t said and ignoring what I have said. Notice how I don’t say such things about you being fine with the casting. I just explained my stance.

I'm sorry, but where did I sling mud or call you irrational?

Please keep any discussion of the casting for the Live Action Little Mermaid in the thread in the Politics and Social Issues forum. Any further posts will be removed. Thank you.

And please remember that personal attacks are not allowed.
