Rec: How To Be A Fan Of Problematic Things (Article)

Joey Comeau just tweeted this link, and I thought it was so good that I needed to share it.

How To Be A Fan of Problematic Things (small spoilers for Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World and Game of Thrones.) 

It's very simple and brilliantly written out.

I don't 100% agree with their "secondly" point, because I think it depends on who you are talking to...I mean, there has to be a limit for how long you have to acknowledge the problem before you are allowed to talk about the giant sand worm. I often end my little entries here with some variation of "and please don't expect me to debate the misogyny issue, because we've beaten that dead-horse to death already elsewhere" and I think that's fair of me to do, because it's not like I'm denying the issues or unwilling to listen to those who want to restate them. I just don't have anything else to add to the debate that I haven't said before.
